Amore Uptown Ratings and Reviews
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. We all want to go back!!
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!
I had dinner here for a very special occasion - I was proposing to my girlfriend - and the staff at Amore Uptown made sure everything went smoothly. They honored all my requests, the service was very good, and the food was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
The food was amazing! The service was great; we had a very attentive server, which made the experience even better. We had traffic issues, so we called to let them know we were going to e a little late. They were very gracious and accommodating, to allow us to still be able to dine there.
My dining experience was very good at Amore! I am glad I tried it! The service was very good. Our food was very good. We arrived during Happy Hour! I would highly recommend that! A lot of good options! I would recommend this Italian restaurant to family and friends!
We were seated at a table and the server came by after about 5 minutes and said she'd be back soon to take our order. We waited and after 15 minutes when she still haven't been back, we just left. We were in a hurry to go see a movie, which obviously isn't the restaurant's problem, but I think 15 minutes is a bit too long to wait to place a drink order. So, first impression was not good.
I wish they had better/more options for food on their happy hour menu. Their patio menu in general doesn't offer a whole lot. The wine is cheap and is served in small plastic cups on the patio which feels more like a sports bar move, but then again, it was happy hour. The server had a massive group along with our table, so service was slow, but he did the best he could. We ended up having to pay at the bar because it took so long for him to close out our tabs.
Was given a $100.00 gift card as a Christmas gift and they refused to take it. Gift card had no expiration date and felt no urgency to make the 100 mile trip to use it. They said they changed ownership and sent out emails notifying customers of an imposed timeline for gift cards to expire. First, they didn’t have the email of the gift giver, let alone mine. Second, they had to know the value of outstanding gift cards when transitioning ownership. Worst of all, not even a gesture was made. A discount on the $90.00 bill or free dessert? Nothing. Won’t eat there again - not how I would do business.
I made a lunch reservation through OpenTable for Monday, October 16. The reservation was accepted. When we got to the restaurant, we discovered that Amore Uptown is no longer open for lunch on Mondays! A wasted trip for us! OpenTable and Amore Uptown need to get their info straight. We are very unhappy.
Our wait staff, Nina, was attentive and friendly. We went for brunch for a birthday and she brought a special birthday dessert for all of us. Four people ordered 4 different entrees and everyone loved their food. We will definitely be returning. We didn't use the outdoor deck but will return in the summer to use it.
