Not sure if they were short staffed but the service was slow and appetizer never showed up. We are very forgiving during these Covid times but other tables seemed to be getting there orders in a timely manner. The food was great, and my cocktail was yummy.

We had a lovely table in the window area, very private and quiet. Our meal was delicious, a variety of menu items to choose from and wonders of wonders they have a sugar free dessert and it was delicious!!! We have been going to Amadeus since they were originally out at The Doctor's Clinic. Same good food and nice people.

Since moving to Oregon, we have enjoyed dinner at Amadeus 2 times. Both times our food was absolutely delicious. Well plated and portion size is perfect. Our server is friendly and attentive.
I had the Salmon Picatta with mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was delicious but a bit too much pepper for my taste, so I scooped some off. My Husband had the Brisket with mashed potatoes and topped with a crunchy shoestring potatoes. His was delicious but also a bit heavy on the pepper. We love going there forever a special occasion and can’t wait to go again. Next time, we’ll just ask to go light on the pepper.

My third visit while staying in Salem. Brought my daughter and fiancé for the first time.....made reservations way in advance and was sat upstairs. We kind of felt like we didn’t belong......there was a vacant table downstairs for four and I’m not sure why were not able to sit there. It wasn’t as fun sitting up there. Food was great snd so was service but the ambiance was not the same. The kids were disappointed as well.......

Our problem was they were not open until dinner! Open table sent me a request to confirm my 12:00 lunch reservation the day before. I confirmed. It was Easter Sunday. Arrived to a dark, closed restaurant! I am done with Open Table!!!

Always a favorite place to eat - everything on the menu is tasty. I had the meatballs and they were delicious. Hubby had chicken and mushroom couscous which he really enjoyed. Drinks were good, only negative is that we had to sit on the street in a tent, street cars were very noisy and it was cold - heater was not running at full capacity. Next trip we want to eat indoors for sure.

Everyone and everything seemed influenced by
the owner, Elaina (sp?), which is AWESOME!

The atmosphere, food, service, were excellent. After a very long day driving, this experience and meeting Elaina were a great way to end the evening.

It is wonderful that Amadeus is open again!!! Dinner was exactly as we remembered it. The stroganoff is our favorite. of course, any desert is sublime. The service is always top notch. Highly recommended for either a celebration dinner or simply casual dinning.

This was the day after our county opened back up for indoor dining and Amadeus didn’t skip a beat. Service and food were wonderful. We always know we’ll be happy with our meals here. It was a great choice for our first inside date night in what feels like forever!
