Great food, good service. My reviews are always based on one question - would I dine there again? Amadeus gets a resounding yes. I ordered a meal similar to one I ordered at the Columbia River Gorge hotel (cesar salad and butternut ravioli) and this was far superior to that one. Looking forward to our next dinner at Amadeus!

Great food, great atmosphere, friendly service, convenient location, what more can you ask for? Although I was there with a friend, it would be a great date night location.

Overall, it was fabulous as always! I’m old (as are a growing many) so the only downer is the ambient noise level of the place. I realize this kinda thing atmosphere is trendy and hip now, but in a few years, when the gray-hairs become the majority, this restaurant and other more noisy ones like it will need to adapt.

A very good restaurant! We sat outside (downtown sidewalk) and it was great. Attentive and friendly service. Food was well prepared and tasty. Brought our own bottle of wine and their corkage was reasonable ($15).

The atmosphere was nice but after 6:00 pm as people came in very noisy hard to have a conversation. Had medallions and asked to be well done and were pink inside. Girlfriend had the chicken a lil tough and asparagus tough. When we paid and service asked about our meal, she did give $10 off coupon. Said she could of done more to correct if known earlier but we don’t like to complain…we’re tired and just wanted dinner and go back to our hotel. A good martini and wine. They can keep their hummus and chips they bring you when you order. Not a hummus guy.

Even though the restaurant was slammed with customers, our dining experience was great...we had a wonderful server and each food item was delivered quickly and professionally. We have not been here since pre covid and we both commented that we felt safe dining in-with all of the precautions. My salad with salmon was delicious and my husband's salmon piccata was very tender and tasty! It was our 37th wedding anniversary and we wanted a special night-we got it!!

Excellent fine dining in Salem. I had the Painted Hills Brisket, which was VERY filling. My seasonal spicy mule was delicious. The Margarita Pizza my husband ordered was perfect for a less filling dish. We had the queso and meddi plate as apetizers which were both really really delicious. Their hummus is house-made I think, and is excellent.

We love Amadeus and are glad it’s still here. We finally went back for the first time since March 2020 and were pleased that their quality has not slipped. Our server was exceptionally friendly and helpful! We tried two appetizers (Brussels sprouts and artichoke dip) and they were both outstanding. Salmon piccata, shrimp-bacon risotto and cocktails were equally delicious. Price is on par for food of this quality. We will definitely be back—always an enjoyable meal.

I’ve been to Amadeus several times, always amazing quality. Today was not it. To the point that my husband decided to go with a burger vs the bbq dish. At this time I will not be going back for a while.

I gave Amadeus 5 stars because I LOVE the place. I did feel it was a bit off but I think because of the staff shortage from the pandemic. Our waitress rolled with it and was friendly and right on.
