The food and service were very good. No complaints there but portions were too small. Wine is $14-$19 per glass. Appetizers are $10-$15 and entrees $26-$36.
Dinner for 2 with tax and tip is easily $125-$150 or more.

Noise levels were high.

Other middle eastern restaurants are as good at half the price. We will probably not return unless they run specials in the off season.

Fantastic meal! Had the "Taste of Amar" family-style option and it was incredible. We were all completely full but did not feel disgusting after. I appreciated the large number of delicious vegetarian offerings. Will definitely be back!

Excellent service and food overall. The server was clearly passionate about his career and the experience was wonderful. The food was so fresh and flavorful. Tried some Lebanese wine recommended by our server that was a great new experience for us. Can’t wait to go back!

My family and I had a wonderful Easter brunch at Amar. The service, food, & drinks were all amazing. The restaurant was beautiful and a welcome addition to the Ave. We will be returning very soon.

The appetizers started off strong, but the entrees were lacking. Not much in terms of flavor, temperature or presentation. We sent the chicken shish taouk back because it came dry and cold, as did the rice accompanying the dish. The waitress was excellent and tried her best to make things right. The owner who was right there never even came up to check on things.

The food and service were excellent! The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because of how insanely close to another table we were seated, especially during a pandemic. It’s a very small space in general, but we were seated less than one foot from the other table. It’s a very tight space and if you are a larger person, it could lead to a potentially embarrassing situation (my husband is a bigger guy and people kept walking into him, etc. If he was any bigger, he wouldn’t have fit). However, we really enjoyed the food, especially the mixed grill.

From beginning to end, a delicious experience of Lebanese/Middle Eastern cuisine. We enjoyed the taste of Amar for two. It was a lot of food, which we took some home for leftovers. Every dish got better as the evening went on. We will definitely be back.

Pretty Good, love Lebanese food. The $49 per person prix fix meal is way too much food for the average person. Some of the food was great some more mediocre. Hopefully just the growing pains of a new restaurant .
