    Our waiter, Robert, was attentive, considerate and helpful in choosing food that fit our needs. The food was terrific. It was spice well but not overly. I think Amare is right up there with Narcossee’s and California Grill as far as the quality of the food goes. All-in-all it was a very pleasant experience and I would recommend Amare to anyone.

    While staying at Swan Reserve Hotel dined at Amare and thoroughly enjoyed. Our server Luis was knowledgeable with timely service, his recommendations were spot on as we dined on sea bass & pasta with clams as our entrees ( both tasty & filling ), enjoyed their sample flight of sparkling wines & cannoli with a cappuccino for dessert.Great place to dine !

    The table next to us was attended by very sick children and parents coughing and sneezing. Covid is still going around. Sick people should be stopped at the door. Plus they were in shorts, flip flops and tshirts. Below the level of acceptance for a reputable restaurant.

    Great hidden gem at the Swan Reserve at the Swan and Dolphin resort near the Boardwalk area of Disney. Restaurant has an overview of the Fantasia mini golf course. Families abound, but really good menu and cocktails.

    The restaurant was good as was the service. Good food and generous portions. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a table of six VERY loud young adults who laughed loudly and seemed unconcerned that there might be other diners nearby.

    Excellent appetizers: we had calamari, salad, dips and then outstanding entrees of steak, souvlaki and chicken romesco. Very kind server and superb wine list. My new favorite of the restaurants on the Boardwalk at Disney World.

    My wife (who has celiac) and I ate at Amare on 9/14/22. Both our server Luis and the food & wine were fabulous. Luis let us know which of the entrees were gluten-free without the need for modification. We both started with the Amare Salad, and then we shared the Porterhouse (order rare) and the Seabass (the Chef's signature dish). To drink, each had the Mediterranean Red Wine Flight. Finally, the Chef made us a custom gluten-free chocolate dessert. It was our first visit to Amare, and it ranks among the very best meals we've ever had at WDW.

    The chef standing in front of the kitchen was yelling at the cooks the entire time - kind of annoying. The white wine we ordered should have been stored in a cool environment - but it wasn’t - we had to wait for it to be chilled about 10 minutes. The waitress was excellent. The menu was good for casual dining. Ambiance was more like an upscale cafeteria.
