We tried the NY strip. They just added two new side sauces- creamy mushroom and garlic butter. One of the best steaks I've ever had and I eat a lot of steak!!

My husband and I went for a date. If you want to keep it on the more intimate and quiet side ask for the "love cove", a semi-private alcove where you're not totally set apart but you feel like you're the only people there (in a good way). Our server was amazing and attentive, and the food was so good that my mouth is watering thinking about it.

It was so loud I couldn't hear my daughter over the din. They stopped the bottom less mimosas without notice. The food was undercooked. Won't be back.

This food was decent, but nothing great or fantastic. I would prefer to go to Olive Garden. The donut desserts were super doughy and cold. Worth going to once and that’s it.

Overall this was a very nice evening. I went there for a post-Valentine's Day celebration with my wife, and wanted the evening to be special. Based on the prices and online pictures, I got a slightly skewed impression about the dining environment; it was a little more casual than I had hoped. As it turned out, we had actually eaten here before on the rooftop - overall the ambiance is both upstairs and downstairs is nice, but just not super romantic like I had hoped. We were originally seated at a small table in the back room which would have been adequate, but what saved the evening was when we were moved to a more romantic alcove for two (there is only one of them, so ask for this in advance). Great uptown location. Good food.

My wife and I went out on a date night. The gentlemen who was The host was great and very inviting using my name like we were close friends. The food was amazing. My wife had The lamb and risotto and I had the lobster ravioli with a lobster cream sauce and tail of lobster. The atmosphere was great had an intimate setting. Will definitely go back again.

We've been to Amore Uptown before and have always had a great experience, but this was not one of them. They had their Valentines Day 4 course special with a limited menu. When we were seated we felt like we were being processed through for expedience not experience. They had a full house as most restaurants on Valentines day and seemed to be trying to hurry us along with our selections. This did let up as the restaurant slowed down. My date ordered the New York strip steak med-rare and I the mushroom passion pasta. The steak came out well-done. While the waitress tried to correct the issue it seemed the chef had no experience cooking a steak and it was one of the poorest quality cuts we've ever had at a "nicer" restaurant. My pasta was fairly good. There was no option to order a la carte as we had on a previous V-day experience. All in all we've usually had good meals and good service at Amore and will probably return, but likely not on a special/busy night as this.

We went on Valentine's Day, so the menu was fixed. The food selection was decent, though not all items were of the best quality. The steak entree option, in particular, left much to be desired.

We were so happy to get a reservation on the night of the City of Lakes Luminary Loppet. And being the adventurous sorts, we skied across Lake of the Isles after helping light some of the sculptures and we were greeted with a warm welcome and a kind manger who took our skis down to his office for safe keeping during our dinner! There are still good people in this world!

Our server was patient, fun and helpful, knew her stuff and helped with our food and beverage decisions. She didn't rush us and we were efficiently served yummy, hot food and delicious wine that kept us warm the rest of the night. The softly falling snow outside the window made for a picture perfect setting. We felt like we were in a little European town. My photo doesn't show the snow falling but you can see it dusting everything outside.

Thanks Amore Uptown for being a warm and bright spot in a very fun evening!

We celebrated my mothers 80th birthday as a party of 6, and were all delighted by the ambiance, coziness and friendliness of Amore Cafe. It is very comfortable. It was Our server Janelle's(sp?) first shift, and she took care of us like a seasoned pro. She made us feel very comfortable, welcomed, and accommodated all our odd requests with grace and panache.

The food was very good and I love the ambiance of the restaurant and rooftop. However, Minnesota winters are very cold and there is only one door between the tables and the outside. Every time someone walked into the restaurant it was cold. We were never able to relax and enjoy our company and meal. They should put up an entrance curtain as it made for a very uncomfortable dining experience. I won't return while temps are low, which in MN is half the year!
