I have been enjoying Amarcord for a few years now, and the food seems to only get better, So if you are anywhere near beacon I cannot recommend it enough.
We had such an incredible meal at Cafe Amarcord! The mussels are excellent, and the roast chicken is scrumptious. We will definitely be back!
Full menu with interesting specials
Good wine selections
Amazing food with a great, professional service staff.
We would definitely recommend Cafe Amarcord. The sausage and broccoli rabe appetizer was amazing and is enough that it could be shared. The Berkshire pork chop was a large, very tender chop paired with baked apple and radicchio slices. The pasta with clams in the shell was a large portion and a nice light meal. The squid ink pasta special was thoroughly enjoyed and had a little heat. All of this was paired with a bottle each of the two Malbec wines offered on the menu and a Hennepin beer.
Very disappointing, especially the two seafood dishes we ordered. Shrimp were way over cooked, halibut wasn’t prepared properly, accompaniments were lackluster. Overall very expensive for quality.
Was an early reservation and the waitress sat us at the first table next to the front door. Outside of that door was either a regular or employee that kept taking smoke breaks right outside the door and would waft the smoke back into the area when he came back in. She could have sat us anywhere else. Literally 3 other tables had customers. My mistake for not asking for a different location. Service was good. Food was ok, wanted the pork chop but was out. Went for the ribeye which for medium was cooked too fast and a bit tough. Raviolis were delicious which this restaurant is more of an Italian influence than the expected contemporary American.
Food was delicious except for Halibut that was slightly overcooked. It took quite awhile to get our first cocktail. Overall it was a great meal and they did not rush in the least.
Food was great and the service and staff were friendly. The branzino was absolutely delicious, as was the ahi tuna. The pasta with duck ragu was very good but my husband would have liked a little more of it! The veal meatballs al tono starter sounded like an interesting combination but would have liked to taste more tuna in it. Beet salad was great. Picky, I know...but have to say it was very enjoyable and delicious and a lovely evening!
Had a really good meal here. Great arugula salad. Tasty brussel sprout salad. Great pasta with vegetables/tomato sauce, excellent tuna. Nice inside, great service.
Nice corner table for two. Food was very good.
Fabulous restaurant with friendly professional staff. Best restaurant we experienced in Beacon!!
What a delightful find this was, as we took a Sunday drive down to Beacon from Albany. Dinner here was comforting. We had the pleasure of Alexis serving us. She was patient as we considered the main menu along with the intriguing specials. We started with an apple-and-smoked-trout salad that was oh so delicious. I opted for a black tagliatelle with lump crab entrée ... nicely spicy without being too hot. My wife went with an oh so tender pork chop. And then we finished with profiteroles. The dining room is still socially-spaced and clean. The bar is inviting, also with seating. Refined and unpretentious, the menu is priced right with a very nice variety, and service is top-notch. Highly recommended!
Wonderful experience perfection in food, service and ambience. Yes, Fellini reigns again with a perfect production at Cafe Amacord!
The food and service were great as always, but I was uncomfortable with the lack of social distancing and Covid protocols. Tables seemed as close as they were before Covid, there were no plexi barriers, people were standing at the bar and they used re-usable menus. I love the food and service was great, but it just felt like there was never a pandemic.
The servers were very attentive and the food and ambiance were both great. The only issue we had was that we had been allowed to ask for some alterations in the way one of the dishes was to be served: one condiment eliminated and 2 of the sauces on the side while keeping one sauce on the item as advertised. It unfortunately took us three different requests before the 2 sauces were brought and until the sauce that should have been on the item all along was brought. Had this not happened we would have given the restaurant 5 stars for sure!
Wonderful food and service. The host was delightful.
We look forward to dinner at Amarcord whenever we are in the HRV, which is not often as we live on the West Coast. It never disappoints.
Went for HVRW and enjoyed every bite of a fantastic 3 course meal. Staff were friendly and helpful and recommended a great wine paring with my meal!
We've been twice, and it was great both times. Food is great, and the service was attentive and prompt.
Delicious food and great service. I highly recommend this restaurant. I will be going back.
As always, Cafe Amacord does not disappoint! The staff is friendly, the ambience is warm and welcoming, and the good is fantastic. It was good to be back.
Wonderful and interesting menu. Will definitely return in the future.
Waitress put the check on the table without asking if we need something else I’m always love to have a decaf cappuccino with my dessert, also clear the table between courses.
Other than that everything was EXCELLENT!!! Thanks !
Haven't been here in a while because of covid restriction. Was as outstanding as ever.
Cocktails were generous and well made.
We went with mostly specials, but my wife had the salmon off the regular menus. It was exceptional.
We split the veal meatballs and 4 cheese pasta purses. Both we outstanding. I had the sea bass special. As fresh and well prepared fish as I have ever had.
Desserts are outrageously good.
Forgot how good this place is, a gem and not overly priced for the quality and service.
Everything we ordered was delicious, very flavorful and well-prepared! We will be back when in town next!
Amacord's cuisine and staff are consistently excellent. Finest restaurant in Beacon.
What keeps us coming back is the consistency of the food. It’s just always delicious and never disappoints! Looking forward to our next visit!
Hands down, just always a great drinks, meal and service!
Our fav in Beacon!
I've dined here indoors, out, and ordered takeout multiple times. Every time has been an all around good experience.
The food was excellent and full of flavor. The restaurant is quite cozy, intimate and romantic. We ordered the grilled calamari for appetizer and for main course - the prime ribeye fiorentina and whole branzino. I highly recommend this restaurant. I came all the way from Long Island to visit this town and I chose this place as a result of reviews I had read online. It was a very special occasion as I proposed to my girlfriend right after dinner and the exact moment when the dessert came out. If you're visiting Beacon for the day, stop by for dinner, you won't regret it.
This is the perfect date night spot with low lights, soft sounds and spectacular food and drink selections. While many restaurants lowered their standards during the pandemic, Cafe Amarcord has thrived and even surpassed previous experiences. A MUST in the Hudson Valley.
Amazing place... go! We started with the shrimp over polenta ...OMG!!! Then I had the seared wasabi tuna .. everything was perfect! The distancing, the atmosphere and the staff ...5 stars across the board
Stumbled upon this wonderful place, the food was eclectic and outstanding. Top notch service. Would love to return
Great food service ambiance!
All around great experience. Drinks were great (highly recommend the Paper Plate) Food was amazing...specially the sea scallops.
delicious food, and nice/friendly server. Good social distancing.
