Amuse - Le Meridien Hotel- Philadelphia
Great Little RestaurantQuaint, small, but very beautifully set up, great staff and wonderfully tasty food. The steak frittes was fantastic!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMike made our nightWe celebrated our one year anniversary with dinner at Amuse. Our waiter took it upon himself to make our night memorable from being more than gracious with his service to taking photos for us at the end of the meal. Will never forget it and will definitely recommend it to friends.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFrench Cuisine in Center CityThe restaurant was very nice, although a bit too contemporary for the old building, in my opinion. The background music was a bit too loud and very alternative. The food was good and plentiful and the presentation was very nice. Three Cheese Onion soup, outstanding. I had the house special of seared filet and french fries (Steak Frites) along with seared brussel spouts (slightly burnt). The Marjoram Lamb T-Bones were very large and the lobster bouillabaisse was outstanding. The standard Desserts were very good; I had the Dark Rum Ice Cream, very good. Our waiter was very nice and handled our every need.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food!!Excellent food. It was more expensive than the "$$". However, well worth it. Everything we had was wonderful, appetizers, salads, main courses and desserts!! Great service also.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a small restaurantThis is a small restaurant inside the hotel, but had BIG flavors. The onion soup is classic french, and the warm baguette withe the whipped butter is to die for.
Not a large space, so I wouldn't bring a group, but for a small party it's perfect.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI don't know why it is soI don't know why it is so empty. It's a lovely space and the food is good.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI really enjoyed my firstI really enjoyed my first visit to Amuse. The interior is unique, elegant and contemporary with appropriate respect to its classic fondation. The food was presented very well and its helped that the weather was perfect and light spilled onto the table highlighting the food. Enjoyed each item as fresh and favorful. The atmosphere was unhurried, vibrant but not crowded in true European fashion. Very pleasant.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service and food.Outstanding service and food.

Our daughter gifted us with a certificate for a lovely dinner. We were pleasantly surprised by our experience. The wait-staff was excellent and the food phenomenal. We cannot praise the experience highly enough. This was a 5 on a scale of 5!3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a title (optional)We went here for restaurant week. It took as a while to find the restaurant, since there was no obvious signs from the streets for that restaurant. Food was delicious! The lobster bisque was rich and creamy - one of the best I've tried so far, especially since it had huge chunks of real lobster in the soup. Delicious!1/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had breakfast here priorWe had breakfast here prior to visiting the art exhibit at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, 1 block away. My eggs benedict were outstanding along with fresh-squeezed orange juice. The servers were attentive and courteous. We had a table next to the fireplace. The tables are not too close together and the room is spacious and bright. I would definitely return to this restaurant and would recommend it.1/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the better meals IOne of the better meals I have had in recent memory! I almost gave the restaurant an "Outstanding" rating (which I rarely give out) but it just didn't missed out on the rating. Decided to eat at Amuse because it was in the hotel I was staying at. Restaurant offers a small but diverse menu. I decided on the arugula salad starter which was amazing! Great flavors all around! As the entree, I chose the halibut. The fish was perfectly prepared and presented. Overall a very good dish but I found the broth the fish and the vegetables were in to be lacking in flavor. Nothing major but a kick of seasoning would have gotten the "outstanding" rating I wanted to give the restaurant. Great Illy espresso ended a wonderful mea.11/19/2012 12:00:00 AM
