    Restaurant was noisy because it was full and doesn’t really have anything to deaden the noise (that’s a different issue) Staff were phenomenal in difficult circumstances.

    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.

    Absolutely fantastic meal. Grilled souvlaki was great as was the grilled mahi-mahi. Found a wonderful bottle of wine for our meal at a reasonable price. Great service and attention to detail. Would highly recommend Amare

    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.

    Great food. The Amare salad is very refreshing. The souvlaki is extremely tender and flavorful. The cheesecake is nothing short of amazing. To top it off, Robert, our server, was super professional and helpful. All in all, a great experience.

    We have stayed at the Swan Reserve before and met Nikki at the restaurant on the date we checked in during breakfast. It had been weeks since our last visit to the restaurant. To our surprise, both the hostess and Nikki still remembered us! They really made us feel as if we were coming home for dinner. We have enjoyed all of our food as always. Their Mediterranean cuisine is not only healthy but the taste is phenomenal as well. I love the hint of citrus in the octopus appetizer, and garlic in the shrimp appetizer! Nevertheless, it’s the heartwarming wonderful staff who make us come back time and time again! Thank you, Nikki, for making another dinner experience perfect for us!

    This was our first time dining here and we thought the restaurant was on the rooftop, but it was on the second floor - same as the lobby/front desk. We were seated in front of the open kitchen and it was a treat to watch the chefs prepare meals. It was a small space so the noise level was high. Our server, Bany couldn’t have been more friendly and accommodating. She was a delight! Chef Yvan created several amazing dishes to accommodate our gluten allergy. They entire crew went above and beyond for us the entire evening. We appreciate the care and attention given to us especially by Kelsey who made us feel as though we were in her home. We will certainly return and recommend to our friends & family. Also the restaurant validates parking.

    We had a fabulous experience at Amare while staying at the Swan Reserve. The food was excellent. Perfect calamari, amazing sea bass and wonderful grilled souvlaki. All of it tasted great and was perfectly prepared...and in our case: it was prepared twice. That's right...our food was made for us twice and not because anything was wrong with it, just because Amare has unbelievable hospitality. Making this experience so exceptional was the service. We had been invited to an event hosted by the hotel at the rooftop, to watch the EPCOT fireworks. Unfortunately, we arrived a bit late due to shuttle delays and crazy weather so the show would be happening right as our entrees were coming up. We grabbed a few bites and asked if it would be possible to leave our things to take our son up to see the fireworks we had been promising. They kindly obliged, but not only did they offer to reheat our dishes, when they arrived at the table, they had completely remade them to make sure we had their best offering. This gesture took a great meal and made it a memorable one!

    This restaurant is located in the Swan Reserve on the Disney World resort (Epcot area). The entire hotel has only been open since November and the restaurant has amazing ambiance and the food is fantastic. I predict that this will be a top restaurant at Disney in the next few years. You will not be disappointed! Ask for Kathleen, she was amazing!

    We were a party of 7 with two kids staying at the nearby Swan Hotel. All the restaurants in the Swan/Dolphin seemed to be booked until late so we decided to try this restaurant across the street, about a 5 minute walk. Everything was outstanding: food, service and atmosphere. Out waitress was one of the finest servers we have ever experienced, very happy, sweet, attentive, knowledgeable, helpful and efficient. We tried a variety of dishes and all were very well prepared and delicious. Very pretty restaurant, felt brand new and modern. We were so glad we tried Amare and highly recommend it.

    We thought the food was very disappointing, the filet mignon was $63 but clearly had been frozen. The souvlaki with tabouleh was very so so Zoe’s s chain better and cheaper!! The seabass was disappointing coming in a paper packet, the Mediterranean flavor was overpowering the fish. The ground lamb in the pot stickers had a very overpowering flavor. It was extremely overpriced for the quality. The cheesecake with greek yogurt was amazing and light, so was the cannoli. Ryan the server was amazing.
