  • "The food was excellent, tender steak with nice Madera sauce. Very good cavatelli with sausage, and rabbit. Soups were delicious (and hot!). Our server was a little inexperienced but enthusiastic. Everyone was friendly and helpful."

  • "First time there this past Saturday night. Great service from Nicole, food was excellent, romantic enough with the dim lighting but not overly done or trying too hard. The place was just right in venue size, food portions and price. We will definitely go back."

  • "We went to Café Amarcord for dinner on a Saturday night prior to an 8:30 concert in Beacon. Our reservation was for 7:00 pm and we were on time and were seated immediately. We were given a menu for drinks and were not given food menus until after we had ordered drinks. By the time we were given our food menus, it was 7:30, and the waiter did not return to take our order until 7:38. I told the waiter that we had an 8:30 concert and that we had to leave the restaurant by 8:20. To make a long story short, despite my frequent pleading to bring our food, it did not arrive until 8:20. We spent 3 minutes eating a portion of our meal and had to take the rest home. They did manage to bring the check quickly. Clearly, getting paid was high priority."

  • "This was my second visit to Cafe Amacord. Our party of three were immediately attented to from the moment we arrived. The wine/beer/cocktail selections were very good. I ordered a margarita st. rita, a drink I really enjoyed on my first visit there. We ordered 3 appetizers: burrata w/ quail's eggs, green bean tempura, and a special berkshire pork dish. All were delicious but our most enjoyed dish was the green bean tempura! Entrees were excellent. We ordered home made fettuccini with shrimp and serrano ham, pappardelle with black pepper ricotta and a perfectly cooked sea bass special. The food was cooked to perfection, generous portions which made for some take home. Good service, warm and cozy, great lighting! Highly recommended."

  • "From start to finish a great place for food & drinks or just to hang out at the cozy bar. BEWARE the unknown to us ** 2nd Saturday** madness re long wait to be seated. Even with phone and Open Table reservations we waited half an hour plus to be seated. Friendly bartender & great cocktails made the wait bearable. After seating we were served in short order but probably more to the fact that it was now 10pm and other patrons were leaving. We ended up closing the place and enjoyed the overall experience from drinks to food. All well prepared and presented."

  • "We did not enjoy New Year's Eve at Amarcord. There was no NYE ambiance, no "Happy New Year!" We felt if they didn't know you, they didn't care. The bread was stale and it took 10 minutes to get a menu. The wine list: meh. My tartare was good,but again, the bread accompanying it was stale and skimpy. My husband's entree, pasta with lobster diablo was so spicy that any lobster flavor was lost. My trout was drowning in butter and topped with a few over-cooked beans. And the final tab was nearly $200. Had it been a wonderful meal, we would have happily spent it but it was too much money for too mediocre food. A comfortable place for old townies but not foodies. A decent place to sit at the bar and have a drink before eating elsewhere."

  • "On a little journey upstate to get out of the city for the weekend we were told to come here for an amazing meal and boy were we satisfied! The service was fantastic, the atmosphere was divine and the food rivaled that of high end foodie favorites in Manhattan. We had the endive salad, the gnocchi and the outrageously delish veal chop! I highly recommend Cafe Amarcord!!"

  • "Had grilled octupus, burrata with quail's-egg, and wild boar. All flavorful and different items than usual fare in this area. The meal was enjoyable and I'm be back."

  • "It was a pleasure once again eating at Café Amarcord. The food and service were excellent as always. Made our girls day out in Beacon extra special."

  • "A group of us went here for dinner for the first time. We were all pleasantly surprised by how good the food was (except for a bland carrot ginger soup) and the decor although the place could've had a bit more ambiance, it was a little too quiet and in need of some cool, louder music. We we also less than impressed by our forgetful waitress and enormous bill! But in the end, in my opinion, the food is most important and that really was very good and the staff was nice (although forgetful) so i do recommend dining here."

  • "Thank you so much for fitting 6 more people in the night before the reservation. We had an AWESOME experience. This is our third time in as many weeks at Amarcord and we can't recommend it enough!!! We'll be back soon!"

  • "Everyon in our party for 8 was very satisfied with their meal and service. The linguine with lobster was very good and very fairly priced. All of the daily specials were very interesting and not what I would have expected from a restaurant on Moin Street in Beacon New York."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "I ordered the special for the evening: orata. It arrived perfectly fileted and nicely presented, with no hint of even a tiny bone. My husband's beef filet was at least two inches thick and cooked to perfection. Our male server was congenial and well versed in the wines, not too friendly but just the right degree of conversation. Ambience was fine but not exceptional - certainly the food made up for it."

  • "This is an excellent restaurant. Definitely make reservations. The service is outstanding. It was my sister's birthday, I called just an hour in advance to inquire about a dessert to be brought to the table to sing to her, our waiter recommended a Chocolate Carmel soufflé, which was incredible. The wine was very good, we all ordered specials which were varied and wonderful and not overpriced. We will be back and will totally recommend to friends. Thank you for a wonderful evening!"

  • "We went there for lunch and was surprised how empty it was. We had delicious steak sandwiches with a salad and French fries. The service was great as was the wine. If you go to the Dia in Beacon, Amarcord is a very good choice for lunch."

  • "We were in Beacon for a wedding over Labor Day and, based on e-research, 5 family members went to Café Amarcord for dinner. What a find. Unprepossessing from the outside, Amarcord provided outstanding plates with delicious blends of flavors, perfectly cooked with a focus on healthy, local fare. Don't be discouraged by their relatively small menu on-line. They offer many appetizers and entrées as specials and the pasta meals are available as half-orders. The desserts were delightful, too. We wish we lived in the area so we could go back a few more times to order all the things we didn't get this time around that sounded so good. Go and enjoy!"

  • "This was the second visit to Cafe Amarcord. The first, a year earlier. Both times, the menu was very exciting, varied and unusual. Since there were few diners, it's hard to evaluate what service and noise level would be on a busy evening, but in this case both were excellent."
    Dined on 8/14/2013
  • "We didn't expect to find such good food during a 4th of July outing to Beacon, but Cafe Amarcord came through. After a day of hiking and then Dia, this dinner capped off a perfect day. We had a wonderful pasta dish, a special that night, made with ground venison- absolutely delicious. The service was a bit slow, but the ambiance was nice and it wasn't too noisy. Overall, outstanding,"
