We had an early dinner. Only a few people at that time. Great view of beach and ocean. Very hospitable with free valet parking. The fresh red snapper was excellent. Hubby’s seafood pasta was very flavorful but slightly dry. Very pleasant find from security to parking attendant to hostess to waiter... they all get 5 stars.

The food here is always superb. The wait staff was attentive but visited the table just enough - not too much that you wanted them to leave you alone. Crab cakes appetizer was almost all crab - not all bread crumbs like some places - and had a good amount of lobster on top. I could eat them for a meal! My steak was cooked to perfection, but I almost didn’t notice because the potatoes were so good, I had about 10 bites of them before I even cut into the steak. We loved the desserts as well. Highly recommended!

The waiter named George is absolutely the best server I have ever encountered on four continents. He anticipated our needs before we had to ask, he was polite, professional snd attentive. THE BEST!

Our server George was excellent. Ocean Views were beautiful. I ordered the lump crab cake sandwich and fries which was excellent. My wife had a delicious wedge salad. Be sure to order the Two Tall carrot cake was outstanding.

Went there for Thanksgiving dinner with my family. Made the reservation through Open Table. When arrived there, the reception explained that they have gad a long reception earlier that day therefore, the restaurant will not serve dinner. Do not know why this was not reflected in the Open Table as the other restaurants that were closed on Thanksgiving night. Will never go back to that place again.

Everything was lovely with the exception of our table. We were told that we could not sit in the area where we could see the ocean because tables had to be rearranged as diners left for arriving parties. There were numerous empty tables for 4 that remained empty the entire time we were there.

A very enjoyable dining experience. Food was plentiful and in keeping with Thanksgiving. Turkey breast was delicious, and the best I've had in a long time. Sorry there was no dark meat. The roast beef was excellent and juicy. In addition to the normal side dishes such as mashed sweet potatoes, oyster dressing and various salads, there was boiled shrimp and oysters. There were also various mini dishes with Thanksgiving themes. The sunny day and beautiful ocean view made this dining experience almost perfect.

First, Cafe Amalfi has an amazing ocean view which adds to the ambience if your reservation is before dark. Second, if you can get George for your server, you will have the pleasure of having your meal orchestrated by a seasoned pro. Both dishes we had on this visit were excellent; I especially liked the "seafood trio." Also, corkage is a reasonable $12.00.

The best thing about this Resturant is the view. The service is attentive and very helpful, from parking the attendants to the waitstaff! The food was hot and served quickly, but the flavor was average. The feel of the Resturant is hotel, not a special place. For the price the experience is nothing special.

The worst experience in 20 years. EMPTY!. Dining room Saturday night at 8:30pm. Poor service , no training, no hospitality! The food “should” have been good !
HORRIBLE !! we ordered appetizers, came
Out incorrect. We ordered three (3) entrees and not ONE (1) was edible. Crab cakes were a salt pile ! The risotto was “mush” very poorly prepared ! Three entrees and the three of us had maybe 6 bites and paid and left ! This place needs management, training and maybe more then I can name. Extremely disappointed!
It was known ! Not a manager in sight to correct, or apologize.
They must give staff the tools to be successful !

Whether you are staying at the Royal Palms Hilton or not, definitely go to Cafe Amalfi for a very special dinner. Food is great, prices are reasonable and if you are lucky you will get George as your waiter. We took friends who were celebrating both an anniversary and a birthday. Amalfi does birthdays right...a sparkler on a small cake. We had a great time & highly recommend this restaurant!

We had dined at Cafe Amalfi over the winter and it was great so we gave it a try again this summer. The food was overpriced for what you get. My daughter ordered the scallops for $30 and she got 5 dime size scallops covered in garlic which was almost uneatable. My other daughter ordered the seafood pasta for $28. The seafood was over cooked and laid over maybe 1/4 cup of dry pasta. We had to ask to get more water for the table numerous times and my daughter had an empty soda glass all night. Food was terrible service was awful and they just lost a returning customer.

This restaurant was recommended by our resort. The restaurant was right on the ocean but the atmosphere was loud and not relaxing. A DJ below was playing loud music and people screaming and jumping in the pool below. Our food was mediocre at best for the high price. I had salmon and my husband had a filet. We let the hostess and I believe the owner know we were disappointed. They didn’t really seem to care

Eh. The search for a halfway decent restaurant in Myrtle Beach continues. This isn’t it. Just hotel food in a nice room with a nice view. But don’t get your hope up too high.

We have been vacationing in Myrtle Beach for many years, but this was our first visit to Cafe Amalfi. My wife and daughter are gluten free and both loved their meals (lentil meatloaf and salmon). We knew had chosen a good place when they bought out gluten free dinner rolls. That’s so rare at most restaurants.

I had the roasted half chicken which was delicious and my nephew had the filet mignon, which he enjoyed. The best thing for me though was the seafood chowder. One of the best chowders I’ve ever had. And it was a very large bowl.

The waiter (George) was really good... very attentive and patient. We sat at a wonderful table next to the window. The view of the beach and ocean was fantastic. I highly recommend this place.

My husband and I celebrated our 43rd anniversary at Cafe Amalfi. Our server was excellent, right on time with all the courses. The food was beautifully presented. (I had the Mahi-Mahi on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes with asparagus. My husband had salmon with carrots and asparagus.) We each had salads that came with our entrees and a basket of delicious bread was served with them. Everything was very tasty. This is a small restaurant with a lovely view of the ocean, but we did not get one of those tables and were a little close to a table with a large family, but it was okay. The only drawback was that it was very difficult to find and although we left in plenty of time, we had a hard time getting there and were late for our reservation. This restaurant has a somewhat limited menu and it is a little pricey, but it was great for a special night out.

Everything was wonderful our waiter was a fantastic older gentleman. Our only complaint was all of our table of 5 had the same comment that the food was to salted there was no need to use so much salt especially on the spinach we have eaten here before and did not have the same issue. We laughed and thought maybe the chef likes salt on his food. Aside from this we all agree 5stars!!!!!
