I will go out on a limb and say Mortons is the best restaurant in Salem.

It is the place for a special date, anniversary, graduation..etc.

The location is intimate. It is cozy if you are a couple. It has a warm vibe and is especially nice if you are in a group (family, friends).

They have a great wine list. Last time we were there we had a $50 bottle that just made us happy. Some bottles are an experience - aroma, flavor, feel.

The service is text book good. They hustle, but are classy and not over the top. I have always been impressed with the servers.

I have ate at Morton's probably twenty times, and have been very happy each time.
