                                        Excellent service, great food. Drinks were a little weak, should have had more alcohol in them. A little pricey but the food was great.

                                        Amuse was fine for a light supper, but it looked more like just a bar than a restaurant. They need better signage!

                                        The dining/breakfast in the hotel is super convenient - especially in the middle of the winter, to have everything on-site! It's good food, not super expensive or chic. Perfect for what we needed! Service fast and nice!

                                        Amuse is operating on a limited basis. This was not made clear during the reservation process. Dining room is not in use. Service is a tables in the lobby. Menu and bar are very limited and staffing tries hard but there is only one person handlining bar and dining. Cannot recommend right now.

                                        When we arrived, we were told the restaurant didn’t accept reservations. The hostess was aware reservations are bookable on Open Table, but said they shouldn’t be. The hostess was very polite and did her best to accommodate our group, but this is obviously a massive oversight on management’s part. They were able to seat part of our group. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly, but the kitchen was a bit slow. It took ~40 minutes for our breakfast to arrive after being ordered.

                                        Procuitto tasted like ham. The steak was tough and barely seasoned, needs a sauce or something. Also, it's in the hotel lobby, not in a separate space.

                                        Went there for breakfast. No one to greet you, very confusing as to where the restaurant is. The restaurant turned out to be the bar area. I found this out by waiting in line at the hotel check in desk, and finally getting to speak to someone. There was no one in the bar area to greet or seat us. There were many empty tables that needed to be cleaned off. I tried to ask the bartender, but was ignored. At this point, we just left.

                                        I'm only saying I would recommend this restaurant because I'm hoping it improves by the next time we return. It was a disappointment to learn, while we were waiting to order breakfast, on a sparse Sunday morning well before the brunch hour, that the chef was new and, apparently, had no idea how to coordinate order to finished plate.

                                        Either it's a chronic problem or there was an issue that night they were seriously understaffed the server tried hard but she was covering the entire dining area. There was only one bartender on duty and response time for drink orders was very slow. Wait for food was longer than should be for fairly simple order. On the plus side they have a creative drink menu.

                                        The sever was warm and welcoming. She was managing a large area all on her own and doing a great job. The truffle fries were amazing. We got the steak frites and pan seared salmon both were okay nothing grand. I think it's a little over priced.

                                        Worst service I have ever had in my entire life and I don’t say that lightly. Seated at 7:30, still no food at 9:30. Manager took 30 mins to come speak to us about it. We wound up leaving with no food and an offer of a drink to compensate.

                                        It is very, very rare for me to leave a negative restaurant review. Amuse creates the exception. My wife and I went on a Friday night with a reservation. Very pleasant server greeted us and seated us immediately. But it all was downhill from there. We asked for tap water and then said we’d place a drink order. 20 minutes later she came back to take the drink order; we still didn’t have our water yet. The drinks took another 20 minutes with water being poured when we could flag down someone else on staff. Our server took our order when she delivered our drinks. We ordered a salad to share and two entrees. The salad came 20-30 minutes after we ordered it (all cold ingredients- no cooking involved). And the dinners arrived a full hour after we ordered. The place was only 50% - 60% full at any time so the kitchen should not have been too backed up. Although our server seemed to have an extraordinary number of tables to serve. By the time the dinners came we’d been there 1 hour and 40 minutes, had a half a salad each, and one drink. Since we were hungry we ate it. My wife ordered salmon which was clearly over cooked. And I ordered the stuffed pork loin. It was dry and also over cooked. I always though stuffing meat kept it moist. Not at Amore. Server was pleasant, so one star. Service was really slow (we suspect a staffing issue, not on the server). Water was only poured with multiple requests. Drinks were hard to come by. And the food was poorly prepared. So no stars on the other four items. Would not return. Would not recommend.

                                        I was looking for a place where we could have breakfast before visiting Christmas village and amuse came up in the search, however, all it really seemed to be was a place for the hotel folks to have a continental breakfast. It took a long time to find a server, and one who spoke English.

                                        We went here 2 years ago, and the experience was AMAZING. We had a window seat with a beautiful view of City hall, complementary bread and tuna tar tar, and absolutely delicious entrees. We came back tonight hoping for a similar experience and to celebrate a special occasion. Though the service was excellent (very attentive waitress and accommodating manager), the food took a very, VERY long time to get to us (despite being one of 3 tables actually dining in be restaurant). When the food finally got to us, the steak was cold and not great. The ambiance was also very underwhelming. They’ve now moved the dining area to the back of the lobby, so there are no windows with nice views anymore. The room with the beautiful, romantic ambiance (what’s pictured in the photographs on OpenTable and on many websites) is now only used only for business events and meetings. To be honest, the food was not worth what we paid. That reason, plus what I listed above, will most likely keep us from returning. It’s a shame, because I honestly thought this would be our “place” after the amazing first experience. The waitress and the manager were both amazingly nice, attentive, and super accommodating. None of my complaints above were their fault, and they were the only super positive thing about the experience quite frankly.

                                        It was Restaurant Week, a good time to scout new dining options. The choices were scrimpy and as described by the waitress “Not the same” as on regular menu. So, what is the point of Restaurant Week ? The salad was tiny and served in a too small bowl so the dressing, in a tiny plastic container, could not be properly mixed . The steak au frites was “ a different cut than what is ordinarily served.”...not very good. There were two dessert choices. It was a disappointing dinning experience. It is not very French as suggested ...in a French hotel. It is not chic as advertised . The tables are bare,

                                        It's not a place you go to during lunch cause the service is a little slow.

                                        We visited during restaurant week. While menu was limited I did expect a decent meal for $35. Drinks were extra and disappointing as well. I’ve had better food out of my microwave.

                                        I made a reservation, however we had to wait 40 min. After we were seated we had to wait additional 20 min to be served. The waiter was dressed up in extremely dirty white shirt and kept on missing the orders... menu was printed in a way that was unreadable. All together an unpleasant experience that made me look really bad In front of my business partners..

                                        If you want a quiet place to meet and speak or you are just staying in the hotel it is fine. Breakfast (both food and service) was adequate but not good.

                                        The lobster bisque was good. The ratatouille was terribly bland. It had no flavor at all. The crime brûlée was all runny and oily. Terrible choice. Stay away.

                                        Good dinner with fish inspired dishes. Creamy lobster bisque with lobster in it. Halibut served in tomato soup. Lighting too dim and seats too uncomfortable unfortunately.

                                        Sat at the bar with a delightful bartender. Had mushroom pate, swordfish steak with roasted vegetables and finished with blood orange crime brûlée- wonderful!

                                        The food was not anywhere close to what you would expect for the cost and at a 4-star hotel. The menu was very small and several items were not available, for the first seating on a Friday night. The steak was not worth the cost. Breakfast was just ok quality-wise but they messed up our order, twice. I ordered an omelet with ham, tomato and cheese....not complicated. I did not have time to wait for them to make a 3rd attempt so I ate the incorrectly made food. The meal was not comp'ed, as you would expect, but we were given a fruit platter as compensation, which we did not want not had time to eat, by that point as we had another commitment and were running late due to the wait for the 2nd try on our order. Will not be going here again and will not recommend to ANYONE, ever.
