Amrhein's quality has gone up and down over the last few years, but our recent visit was very satisfactory. A short rib special was cooked well and high quality. The gravy was on the bland side, but the unexpected halved cherry tomatoes added a surprising pop of flavor. Really nice service.

Our food was really good. Beet salad, calamari for starters - all great. The signature fall entree offering, the Pumpkin Risotto, tasted as great as the presentation suggested that it would. It was our son's 30th birthday dinner and it couldn't have been better!

As usual, Amrhines is always a fantastic spot for either a casual lunch or dinner. For a special occasion I always feel like it is better than being at home. We celebrated a birthday and were pleased with the food and service. I had scrumptious turkey, other’s had chicken, lobster-Mac and pot pie. We all left as “ Happy Campers “.

Recently went to Amrheins with family and friends. We had great food, waitress was so nice, friendly and very attentive. Great atmosphere and the best thing I would say is you can have great conversations and are able to hear what everyone was saying. The music is great not too loud and you can still hear each other. I had the pumpkin risotto, chicken, cranberries, nuts and it was delicious! Definitely will be back!

As usual, we had another great meal here. I had the chicken pot pie, which was excellent (and very hot), my guests had the salmon, chicken Parmesan, and a large salad. All meals were excellent, particularly the pot pie and the salmon, and everyone truly enjoyed the place.

The service was excellent - my guests commented on the service, ambiance, and the food - and rated this as an excellent selection for bringing out of Towners for a good Boston meal. The clam chowder was excellent and thick, but we were so stuffed we couldn't have the desserts. I know for a fact that Boston cream pie is fantastic.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced restaurant where all the food is well prepared, generous portions, a full bar and beer selection, and great long time wait staff who can't seem to do enough for you - this is the place.

Amrheins is conveniently located 1 block up West Broadway from the Broadway subway stop on the red line. It has its own parking lot, and this was an ideal location for me to meet my out of town and commuter guests for dinner.

We had a great time, great food and drinks, and I plan to make this my "go to" place.

Very very disappointed. The Old Amrheins was excellent. But there was nothing good about it now. The bartender told us there was a new chef and he was changing everything. They use to have the best clam chowder . Now it is inedible. I returned it after 2 tastes. The prices are high for what you get. My drink was a tall Titos vodka and soda. There was absolutely no alcohol taste what so ever. As I said, very disappointed and will not go back.

We had a party of 6 and they had us seated inside, but it was so nice outside that we opted to wait for a table and have a pre-dinner drink at the bar. Nice selection of drinks/beers/wines. I had the beef tips, so did another colleague, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Other selections at our table were the pork chop, stuffed fish, fish tacos, buffalo dip and salmon cake. All was outstanding. Enjoyed talking with the manager, who filled us in on the history of the area.

End of brunch. Nobody at check in desk. Had to flag a server down to get seated (after several saw us waiting at the desk, but took no initiative to seat us)

Waiter nice, but inattentive

Usually great service. Not sure what went wrong on this particular day

The food felt high quality with very good flavors, cooked to perfection. They have classic comfort food options and some healthier options, steaks, salmon, And salads. The crab cakes were fresh tasting and flavorful. Traditional ambiance with an old upscale feel.
