    Our visit to Amara started with our bar waitress requesting my 22 year old daughter’s ID and telling us it’s a fake and bending it in half. I immediately told her I was her mother and here is my ID to prove it was legit. We are from Utah and apparently our licenses look fake? She ended up serving her but was rude and condescending. I understand it’s the law but it could have been handled so differently. Dinner was very mediocre especially for the price. We sat for 20 minutes after we were done eating with dirty plates on our table and no water. My husband and son left to return to our hotel which final got the attention of our waiter to bring our check. Overall not a great experience…

    We are very impressed by the appetizers the restaurant offers. The main courses are also good, but not as good as the appetizer. The serving size of main course is pretty big. If you are an eater with small stomach, you may want to consider sharing with folks in your group. The restaurant also has a promotion of buying 100USD gift card to get 20USD more right now. You could use the gift card right away. One complaint I have about the food is that the lamb skewer seems to be mixed with too much flour. I do not feel like that I am eating the lamb at all.

    Bar and wait staff are incredibly slow. Bartender was not attentive at all. Waited for a drink when only 2 other people were sitting at the bar. Sat down at our table for our waitress to come 20 minutes later for drinks and apps order.

    My wife and I have dined at Amara multiple times, but this time will make us rethink our next visit. The server brought menus and stopped back soon after to take our food offer without asking if we would like to order drinks. We had to prompt the server to take a drink order. For my entree, I ordered their Ravioli special and although the presentation was unique, it was not at the expected level of quality. The dish seemed to have spent some time under a broiler and sections were dried out, but it was just bland with very little flavor.

    Absolutely beautiful environment and amazing menu. Sadly, many of the things we were interested in on the menu were unavailable once we tried to order with our server. The menu also advertised "Tini Tuesday" which is why we chose a Tuesday evening for dinner. And then upon trying to order a martini, we were told Tini Tuesday is not longer a promotion, even though it's listed on the menu and website. Then our server shared a few drink suggestions, and again we ran into the issue where the drink was unavailable. We've heard such great things about this restaurant, but our experience was a little surprising with the issues stated above.

    Hello Melissa and thank you for your review. We sincerely apologize for the mixup on our end while we were in the process of transitioning menus. We strive to always provide the best hospitality possible, and we will be reviewing your comments with our team to discuss how your visit could've gone differently and things we could've provided in the moment to ensure you left happy.

    It’s always a treat to return to Amara. Brunch was excellent. We had the freshest and most tender salad greens. Grilled sour dough bread was delicious as were the shrimp and avocados. We love the quartino wine option and chose a verdicchio from a really nicely curated wine list. Amara never disappoints! Mille grazie.

    Inconsistent food; striped bass was delicious, the accompanying items on plate were cold, fingerling potatoes too salty. Insalata verde was wonderful. Pacheri was hot & tasty, but extremely light on meat. Very loud so difficult to carry on a conversation. Service was okay but not exceptional. Pouring the wine initially would have been nice. Very limited options for gf&df items. Not sure about a return visit.

    The first couple of times we went here, the food was so good and the service was delightful. However, I feel like the food quality has gone down dramatically and the value for what you pay for is not nearly as good as when you opened.

    With a Birthday and Valentines Day Lunch celebration, Amara was very appropriate. Service was accommodating and attentive. “Brunch” menu offerings provided a variety of options. The golden beet salad was a good shared starter. Main course was very tasty and the right size. It was nice to enjoy a Valentine’s Day meal without being rushed

    Food was excellent, server was great, but our food took FOREVER. Over 1.5 hours from the time we ordered and it was Sunday night at 5:40pm (busy by the time we left but not when we ordered). Great restaurant overall just can't take that long to bring the food out.

    We took my son and his girlfriend out to dinner on Sunday night. We enjoyed a pitcher of the mules and the bruschetta appetizer. The entrees were a good size and the atmosphere was lively. It did get quite busy and we had to wait awhile for dessert and our bill but otherwise a good first dinner at Amara.

    Food was excellent but took a long time to get. Waiter was fine but bar took forever to get drinks. They have a limited supply of very common alcohol. so strange!

    We joined friends here for dinner. The marinated olives were delicious to start. We split the gnocchi as an appetizer which was my favorite dish of the meal. The pasta dishes were a bit lackluster in flavor (to be fair, I seem to experience this often when ordering pasta out at restaurants). The half chicken and brussel sprouts were tasty as well. I'd definitely give it another try and might get the gnocchi as my entree.

    We had a lovely time! The food was excellent and the staff made us feel super taken care of. My coworkers and I were out to treat ourselves in the middle of a stressful week and we were definitely happy we came to Amara.

    Sad to see the menu become very limited with not many options. For the price paid the food was ok- nothing I would write home about sadly.
