The Wild Pear is a local restaurant that has creative options that are executed with quality. I have eaten here several times over the years and service has always been great and the food simply excellent.

Decent place. I have to confess that I was a bit disappointed after all of the hype. Felt it was a little on the expensive side for the food, so would rate the value as lower. Overall, it's a nice place; I just wouldn't describe it as "amazing".

We found ourselves in downtown Salem for a couple weeks and had many choices in dining for lunch. Our favorite was the Wild Pear. The salads were excellent and the bread that goes with it was super. It is a cozy place but the service is quick and they have tables for various sized groups. You can even sit at... More

Ordered to go, the restaurant was packed! Always a good sign. We ordered a pizza, club sandwiches, Asian wrap, truffle fries, French dip sandwich.. everything was delicious. The staff was very friendly. The wait was long but worth it!

Went to Wild Pair to have lunch with my two daughters and 20 month old grandson this past weekend. They had eaten there before and one of my daughters company in Corvallis Oregon even has them cater their events they're that good. The squash and tomato soup was very yummy and gluten-free! I loved the decor in the older brick... More

The food here is consistently innovative and excellent as is shown by the place always being packed. The only thing that is an issue for me is they used to have a place where they did dinner. Breakfast and lunch is great, but they used to do one of the best dinners in Salem.

I have heard that the Wild Pear is the best restaurant is Salem and people just love their food. Personally, I would rate it as just ok or average. The menu for lunch had limited choices and items were expensive for the small portions we were served.

Try the soup. You will not be disappointed! Seating is kind-of squishy. If you are a person that requires a distinct place for your goup this is not the place to go.
