Amaranth is located just off Madison Avenue on 62nd Street , between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue, in the heart of the most famous shopping strip of the Upper East Side of Manhattan and few steps from Central Park. We credit our success to a very honest approach to Mediterranean cuisine: a fusion of original Italian food and French food, great hospitality and the highest quality of ingredients that we use in our recipes. A large portion of specialty items that we serve are imported from Italy and France. Our famous Focaccia Robiola, our super fresh and tasty Seafood, creative Pasta and perfectly al dente Risotto, have attracted a dedicated fan base of New Yorkers, Europeans and celebrities, who are looking for a home away from home. Our Mediterranean Bistro has a really charming terrace during the warm season, where you can taste our delicious food or enjoy a cocktail (try our famous Frozen Cosmo!) before dinner.

Amaranth Ratings and Reviews
The food is amazing but I was very disappointed to see that they tipped 20% to themselves without asking. We were three people so there was no argument for them deciding the tip amount. I did not argue but will never come back. Sad!
There's a salad there that I love. I've been to Amaranth three times in the last few months. This last time was the first time I've eaten aside (the cold weather has arrived), and what would make me reconsider returning was the noise volume. It was impossible to have a conversation in a normal voice, which makes dining less than optimum. And when the tables cleared out, and it seemed like we might be able to talk normally, the music was put on and raised to an incomprehensible decibel. Please do something about the noise, and keep the music low, because part of the pleasure in dining here and eating the delicious food is being able to talk to the people you're with.
It was a really special Upper East Side neighborhood restaurant. The ambience service and food were all amazing. The Pinot Noir by the glass was delicious!! They made a big deal over my daughter’s 12th birthday and sang to her as they brought out her dessert with candles and a sparkler. Very classy and special restaurant with great food!!
The service is less than friendly if you are not a regular. they go out of their way to give you the smallest , most busy table ..
There was a bug in the glass of wine they delivered to my guest and the waitress saw it as she was putting the glass down and didn't even offer to take it away until the guest pointed it out.
no offer of apology or even a free glass...
Arrogrant. Made reservation several days Ahead on opentable. When I arrived on time was told that there were no tables available in side when there were a number of empty tables clearly available and my only chioce was to eat outside on a very chilly autumn evening. If you are not a member of the club expect to be treated poorly.
