Amoura Restaurant, located in the heart of South San Francisco, brings modern Mediterranean fare to the Bay Area when its doors open early 2015. The Shihadeh Family (owners of School House Grocery, Deli Up Café, and the Amoura Café locations in SFO and Westfield Mall) teamed up with Culinary Consultant David Wilcox to create a menu featuring classic favorites as well as unique dishes, all reflecting the spirit and flavors of the Mediterranean. With the kitchen now under the direction of Culinary Talent, Josh Dixon, the team is gradually becoming a powerful player in the Bay Area. The beverage program is highlighted by a full bar, unique cocktail menu and extensive wine list. Additionally, the restaurant features an open kitchen (complete with an in-house pita oven and rotisserie with a robata grill), lounge area and a private dining space outfitted with complete AV technology capabilities. Amoura is located at 713 Linden Avenue in South San Francisco.

Food was outstanding! Tapas style. Highly recommend the bacon wrapped dates. Ambiance was well done. Only thing lacking was the service provided by the waitress, which compared to everything else was not on the same par. Not attentive and was nowhere to be found throughout the meal. Outside of that, it was still a good experience and I would recommend.

Food took a while to come to the table which was OK, since we had business to talk about. The Sea Bass was merely grilled and overcooked. The fennel, olives, and roasted garlic did not complement the fish and was not even a well-crafted blend of flavors on its own. The preserved lemon on the fish did go well with the fish. Tabouli would have complimented the fish and cured lemon much better. I think the prices are a bit high and could benefit from price reduction for the large dishes by 15%. The other dishes, although not a value are reasonably priced. The side of hummus was excellent and the falafels were marginal. The flatbread dishes are very good and heard the steak was excellent. I would go back for the hummus and flatbread but skip the fish.

The lunch menu is mostly salads, flatbreads, or sandwiches. There were two lunch entrees - a vegetarian chick pea stew and lamb kabobs. I had a smoked sturgeon flatbread with spiced yogurt base, small bits of sturgeon, sautéed green onions, and sprigs of fresh dill. It was quite different and tasty. My guest had the lamb kabobs which looked to be done to perfection and tender. The table came with hummus dip and pita cuts as well as spiced toasted chick peas and an olive assortment. They have a nice wine and beer menu and also have a full bar, but we did not partake. This was my second lunchtime visit here and as enjoyable as before. It can be a bit noisy here, especially if there are several large groups.

Amoura is a gem, especially for its unlikely location in South San Francisco. The food is very good (has improved a lot over the last few years), the service is great, facility is welcoming and clean and they even have parking!

Service was uneven. Friendly competent waitress, but took a very long time to get our wine. It came when the food did, after we reminded them. Salad came after we were well into entrees. I think they may have been having a crisis in the kitchen. Food quality was also uneven. Steak & lamb kebabs done perfectly, but they were out of yogurt for the chickpea stew (which they didn't tell us about until it was too late to order differently). The squash under the kebabs was weirdly ice cold & fishy tasting, but they took that off our bill. Pleasant atmosphere, and they seem to be trying hard, but have a few kinks to work out.

Have been here several times and really like the food. This last visit was the one time it was not enjoyable because of a large and VERY loud party next to us, but anywhere in the restaurant would have been loud. It looks like they could have partitioned off a portion of the restaurant for the party to keep the noise contained. It was very difficult to have a conversation.

Very nice decor and simple but tasty dishes. The lamb was very good and we had 2 servings. We got the broccolini, hummus, fried potatoes, risotto, and the lamb. Parking lot right next door and it is far enough away from the main street for you to enjoy a not-so-noisy outing.

Wow, what a neighborhood gem on an isolated part of Linden Avenue in SSF. Large welcoming restaurant. Full bar, and private parking lot. Large menu of appetizers, small plates, flatbreads, and entrees. Bacon wrapped dates, avocado/carrot salad, and lamb/beef burger my favorite. Save room for the baklava with ice cream!

This was not my first visit to Amoura. That said, it is nice to have had the same wonderful service and food made with fresh ingredients. It was also nice to see the owners in the restaurant making sure that the food preparation and service meets their standards. I recommend Amoura to friends and family often and they always thank me for for the recommendation, as they have the same experience as I do when they visit Amoura.

Great service. Food very good. Olives & spices nuts to snack on with first glass of wine. Eggplant & arugula flatbread was excellent- light but hearty if that makes sense. Really delicious. Avocado salad was the very best item ordered. Creamy and perfectly seasoned. Hummus was also good but not as special as the avocado salad. Good wine list. Nice addition to SSF scene.
