Food was very salty and did not taste good. Both Salmon and Mac & Cheese were not edible.
Salad and Bread were good.

Went there for my husbands birthday. The food was amazing. The hostess sat us by the windows overlooking the ocean which was beautiful. Our waitress was very good to us, I highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was excellent; however it took over an hour after ordering just to get our salads (and this only after we'd had to ask a couple of times); dinner came after 1-1/2 hours.

Worse was there was an adjoining table with a family with younger children; the family decided to provide their own music for their dinner, so the entire restaurant got to hear hip-hop music; and none of the wait staff or management interceded to stop it.

In defense of the waiter, it seemed understaffed for wait staff; however there were two people bussing the tables (and there were only 10 tables), so it seemed very mis-managed in terms of having the right number and types of staff for the clientele.

I like the setting and as said earlier, the food was excellent; but given the other problems I'm not sure whether I'd return.

My meal was very good, my husbands meal wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great..... I think the whole experience would have been better if we had a better server. The hostess was wonderful, friendly and warm but server wasn’t! We had the bacon wrapped scallops they were amazing everyone loved them. I had the stuffed flounder was really delicious. My salad wasn’t very fresh looking and they were out of wedges so no one was able to get it. My daughter had the Gouda Mac and Cheese with scallops she loved it!!

The food was decent but we had to wait ages to be seated for some reason, even though the restaurant was nearly empty. Also, apparently the grilled vegetable salad comes chilled, which seemed weird. A fine place to eat if you're staying at the Hyatt and don't feel like leaving, but honestly, there are so many other, better options around the area I don't think I'd go back.

Not anything I expected! I thought it was an Italian restaurant & was mislead that it was a fancier, more upscale than it was. Will not recommend it in the future.

The food was absolutely outstanding; Helena, our attendant, was beyond outstanding and so very helpful The seafood dishes were creative, beautifully presented, and the fried green tomato appetizer was beyond unique and extraordinarily delicious. The ambience was sterile and lighting was too bright; no plants….no artwork on walls, but the food was above a 10. Service a 10!!!! Highly recommend!!!!!

Three wonderful things about this meal -- all equally important and fabulous! First, the food was excellent -- neither my wife nor I could resist the daily special which was seared drum (fish) served atop horseradish mashed potatoes and asparagus (either grilled or roasted. This artfully presented main dish was preceded by an excellent salad (the house-made blue cheese dressing was to die for!) and focaccia bread served with olive oil and copious amounts of parmesan cheese. Second -- and no less important -- was the service we received from George (be sure to ask for him!) who has been delighting diners for more than 20 years. He recommended a very nice Sauvignon Blanc to pair with our entrees -- great choice! Third was the view; it's hard to describe how romantic it was to watch late afternoon transition to night with an unobstructed view of the ocean. Finally, the restaurant served us a complimentary dessert of no flour chocolate cake and strawberry cream cheese cake complimented by mounds of whipped cream, sliced strawberries, raspberries and raspberry sauce. Unbelievable! While I can't negate less stellar reviews from other diners, I can only tell those who read this review that this was one of the better meals we've ever enjoyed!

Cafe Amalfi is located on the mezzanine level of a hotel, which might have been off-putting but it wasn't. The atmosphere once in the restaurant doesn't bring a hotel setting to mind. Because it is in a hotel, they know hospitality. The draw is the view of the Atlantic Ocean, so be sure to arrive before dark. Enjoy.

Read rave reviews. The restaurant is in the Hilton hotel. It overlooks the hotels pool and the ocean. Except for my party of three, there was one other couple. I ordered a tuna melt. I really didn't like it. Too much mayonnaise and topped with orange cheese, maybe Velveeta? My friends ordered a hamburger and the other a seafood chowder.
It was just typical hotel food...I still don't understand all the rave reviews.

WE went to Cafe Amalfi for the ambiance suggested by its posting on OpenTable. In reality is the in-house restaurant for a large condo complex run by a hotel chain. The windows are all fogged in the view is mostly obstructed by the condition of the windows. Some of the dishes were very nice, some acceptable. The food selection is less than what the description may suggest in the OT posting.

The reason we mainly chose this restaurant is that it is ocean front and we wanted a view while eating. We ordered a fried calamari appetizer which was very disappointing but without even asking the manager took it off our bill when he saw that most of it was uneaten. The bread, salad and entree's were good. The prices are high for what you get but I guess you are paying for the view more than anything.

It was our first time visiting the restaurant. I was our anniversary. George and trainee Monica was so friendly and helpful with the menu. We ordered the calamari for appetizers and they also brought out the bread. My husband ordered the catch of the day which is the trout that came with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach. I on the other hand had the special which is the salmon with corn and chorizo salsa finished with a beurre blanc sauce. Everything was cooked to perfection. To finish it off the brought out a strawberry shortcake layer cake for dessert. The staff was phenomenal. We will definitely come again!
