Mediterranean
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.

The flatbreads are outstanding, as is the wine selection. The service was on point. Finally a top tier restaurant in South City.

A little disappointing; the flavors were all over the place, somewhat over-seasoned, service was not attentive and I felt a bit ignored

But it is not good for larger groups because you cannot hear the people on the other side of the table. They do have a side room, but I don't know how large the group needs to be to use it.

This is a real community restaurant, gathering hole for the locals. It has parking which is a major plus in SF. The menu is a little limited, but it's all really good.
This is worth a visit.

Food is delicious, staff is friendly and incredibly attentive. Made for a wonderfully romantic Valentines dinner. Valentines was a prix fixe meal with 4 courses. Normal menu is wonderful as well. One of our favorite places.

Heard so much about the lamb shanks here, which is what I ordered. I was not disappointed. It was a generous portion served on top of a generous serving of mushroom risotto. I did share with the others at the table so that I could save room for the warm date cake. Again, not disappointed. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Look forward to going back soon.

No one should read a "good" rating as meaning anything other than good. The food was fine, the staff was accommodating, and we liked the openness of the dining room. The chickpea snacks are addictive!

Met another executive arriving SFO late on Friday night, planning to meet for dinner and discovered Amoura in a web search. We tried it and it was perfect for our meeting. We enjoyed sharing the small plates and the wines. he needed to use his computer to demonstrate his products to they provided us a 4 person table, the combination of space, moderate noise, great food sharing made for an excellent business evening.

I was a bit skeptical based on the location, but Amoura truly is a diamond in the rough, an oasis in the desert. The ambiance is casual nice, the menu is awesome, and the service was friendly and prompt, without rush. For those on the fence about trying it out, do it, you won't regret it.

My first time at Amoura for a business lunch.
The service was great and the food was very good.
Tried the flatbread and hummus for appetizers and would recommend.
The salads are very generous in size and very fresh.
The lamb kebobs were cooked perfectly.
Great option for South SF neighborhood.

This place is a gem in SSF. Who knew that you could get a SF experience without having to go into the city!?! Great healthy food. Good atmosphere. Great service. It's a find in an otherwise nondescript neighborhood. It's a bit out of the way for some, but worth the drive. The plus is they have their own well lit free parking lot next door. Easy peasy. 5 stars!!

Fantastic dinner! Best food combos Ive had in awhile. A friend and I ordered the Carrot and Avocado, the Strawberry and Arugula salad and the Mushroom Risotto. The risotto was my fave but save room for the date and dark chocolate cake! Noise level was high due to a large party but service was great. Would eagerly love to go back.

Amoura is a great restaurant for friend lunches or dinners as well as business lunches or dinners! There is a parking lot for their patrons, too! All the servers have been very nice and Marryum has been very helpful in coordinating events - I want to hold some dinner events there for my company. Great food - their flatbread pizzas are great. I also love their lemonade infused with hibiscus - yummy non-alcoholic drink. But they do have good wines and beers, too!

Ordered lamb shank, sauce had so much salt, making inedible. Lamb was nice soft, shame the salt level ruined the dish. Risotto side dish could not be considered as being risotto.
Lamb burger was over cooked.
