The best restaurant in Salem! Wished they had a location in the Portland area.

The Happy Hour menu at Amadeus is probably the most comprehensive (and delicious) in Salem. They have a full menu page of options, in contrast to the very limited selection at many Salem restaurants. We have tried less than half of the items during two visits and will be going back for more. A reservation is recommended due to the popularity and finding a parking spot may be difficult.

The meal and service were both excellent. While Amadeus is a little pricey, so you certainly get what you pay for!

Food and service was excellent. We were there on Valentine's Day so it was full and a little noisy but overall was a great experience.

Food was outstanding. Went with another couple for Valentine's Day and the special Sea Bass and Mushroom Ravioli was excellent. The guys had Painted Hills Brisket and the American hamburger, made with Kobe beef. They were very impressed with their meals. For dessert, we had the option of picking our own pastries from Sweet Smith, which is located at the back of the restaurant. With so many people, it was difficult to hear, but the overall experience was wonderful.

Had a wonderful Valentines dinner !
I had the classic fillet medallions. Really good.
So was the saucy chicken my wife got.
Also loved the vegan “Ding Dongs” and a toffee/butterscotch cookies!
Only downside is, they almost never have milk to go with the desserts 🙁

The table was ready for us when we arrived and seated promptly.
A couple of changes on the appetizers was handled efficiently.
The waitress was helpful and pleasant to work with and she recommended a good bottle of wine.
The food was served in reasonable time and was very good. Plus, it was not too much food to feel stuffed.

Don’t bother ordering a cocktail, it will take forever!!!
Better to order a bottle of wine and you will get it fairly fast. This restaurant has always had a problem getting to the customer is a timely fashion.
The food is good and good quality.

This has been a favorite restaurant of ours for several years because of the delicious food. We usually order a couple appetizers, entrees and desserts. No take-home container was needed as we usually finished every bite. This time we tried new entrees that sounded quite good on the menu, but were rather tasteless. I ate the salad greens and about ¼ of my entree (a shredded potato dish), then waited. There were few customers, but the waitress did not return to our table until we were ready to leave, when she said I could have ordered a replacement entree, but it was too late for me. My companion ate some of her brie poorboy sandwich but felt there was excessive bread and brie which she left on her plate. We took a few fries home but left too much uneaten food.

The food and our servicer, Chris, were great. Interesting that they make their Caesar salad with mixed greens. I would recommend not sitting at the table for two in the very front window on either side because it was cold. I saw the people on the other side were wearing their costs like I did.

We arrived in time for Happy Hour. So many wonderful choices and we decided quickly what we wanted to share as a group of four. Hands down, they make the most delicious hummus, and the lamb sliders are perfection, as was the Dolmates, pizza, street tacos. We were very happy with the food. The only down side was the 20 minutes we sat before an order being taken.

They lost our order. How does that even happen? It wasn't busy, we went early before a nearby theatre event and were the third or 4th table in the place. Eight or so other tables filled up within the next 20 minutes, and when several of them got food before us we knew something was wrong. I've eaten there several times in past, service was never great but food is generally decent.

A tradition of ours is to go to a nice dinner on Christmas Eve, so I thought we'll give Amadeus a try. The menu looked amazing! We got there a little early for our reservations, so we went to the bar to order a drink. The bartender asked if we had dinner reservations, we said yes and she proceeded to help everyone but us?? After waiting several minutes she finally took our order. We got seated a little before our time and waited 20 minutes before our server came to take the under 21 members drink order and appetizers order. It's a good thing we ordered appetizers because it was another 30 minutes before she came back to check on us to get our dinner order.... ugh. It was so late by the time we got out of there, we had to take our dessert to go. Very slow service and very under staffed. Next year, please consider hiring more staff.

Our experience was on Christmas Eve..so, it was very packed and we had to wait even though we had reservations.... non the less, when we were seated, everything went very well. Fantastic pampelmousse coctail. I am a keto person, so I was very happy to see the keto selections.. I had the keto steak, with blue cheese, and my wife had the keto salmon, though she is not strictly keto. Both were excellent. To top it off, we split a keto cheesecake.. what a rarity.

We absolutely plan on returning.. likely to be one of our favorite spots in Salem.

Thanks Amadeus, for a wonderful evening!!
