I want to like Ventis because it's one if the few places in Salem that has multiple vegetarian/vegan options, and has a great atmosphere. But after many visits, I just can't commit to a great review. Sometimes the food is great, some times it's just so-so. (and they have a vendetta against mustard) The beer selection is expansive, but the... More

My wife and I visited Venti's on Commercial Street in south Salem on a recent, early evening. We wanted to get there before the rush. We sat near the front door and not far from the kitchen pass through window. Our server introduced us to the menu and cared for us with smiles and fine service. The menu is very... More

It took quite a bit for my wife to talk me into going to Venti's in the first place. I always thought of this as one of those hippy food places. I have had great experiences here the first couple of times here. They have great food if you order the right things and a great tap list. Well, I... More

There are 24 rotating choices for draft beer, Day to day , the choices change. Fairly diverse. They also have a lot of choices for bottled beer (lots more choices than draft). Prices were a little high for the beer- 5 for a glass / pint. but not terrible. The food is good but mainly high brow preppie / trendy.... More

First time in Salem and stopped at the Cafe & Taphouse on recommendation from local winery. First the service. Our server was wonderful and attentive to our every need. My wife has severe food allergies and our server was extra cautious and caring. My had the veggie burger and loved it and I had a hamburger and sweet potatoe fries... More

AMAZING FOOD! They have one of the best Gluten-free menus, and practice safe food handling to prevent cross-contamination for Celiacs. The staff is always super friendly, and I have never been disappointed yet. Both the Downtown location and the Commercial St. Location are so cool. Nice to have a hip restaurant in the local area.

I love going to Venti's Downtown Salem in the basement bar. It's cozy, warm and the food is always excellent. There aren't many who know it's down there, so it's always a treat to share with a friend. Thank you Venti's for making my birthday wonderful! (Great date night venue!)

The bar in the cellar is a great place to meet friends. They have a great selection of beers and cocktails. The food is just average and nothing to write home about. They need to step it up and get a great chef that can take them to the next level. Salem really needs to improve on their food venues.... More

Went here on recommendation from a local bike shop and we were not disappointed. Can't wait for the opportunity to go back. Very busy lunch so be ready for lots of noise and maybe a wait.

You'll love the selection of craft beers offered by the restaurant in south salem, but the service is v-e-r-y slow, and the food only so-so. Thought it might be an improvement on downtown, but has about the same quality in a larger building.
