The cheesecake with lemon curd was amazing! This should be a permanent option on your dessert menu. Never take it away! Lol

Our waitress was really phenomenal. The food was solid and a good value. Abide was nice and the restaurant wasn't too loud so we could enjoy conversation with each other easily on mother's day.

The only problem was they had the ceiling fans on which made it a little chilly, and the eggs were overcooked on the eggs benedict

Went on a Tues at 6:30. Finding parking is a nightmare. I guess Bothell is all about the walk-about.
Food was good with generous portions for the pasta.

My husbands italian sausage was so strong he couldn't even eat it. I had the eggs benedict which was wonderful. Everything was fine, till the server came to get our $$$, and did the unthinkable and asked if we wanted change back! That is the ultimate most rude way to end a meal out, ever! If I hadn't already put exact $$ in the thingy, along with a large tip, I would've said yes, I want my change back, and left with no tip at all. Management needs to address this with the staff, it is unacceptable!!!

We visited for Seattle restaurant week and will sure to be back. The attentiveness of our server was unmatched - I cannot remember the last time I had such good service. We enjoyed a few appetizers, main courses, and of course desserts. The flourless chocolate cake is AMAZING. I'll be back!!

Food and service was excellent at Amaro Bistro and would recommended to everyone I know. I will return because there was lots of other dishes on the menu I would love to experience.
Also like the suggestion of wine pairing with the food I ordered because the wine was excellent it complimented the food very nicely.

6 of us went to Restaurant Week and everyone loved their meals. I especially liked the crispy brussel sprouts appetizer, could eat that every day! We went early (5 pm) so the noise level was much better than it is later

We had a very nice experience and Amaro Bistro. We took another couple out to dinner and they had a very nice experience. Appetizers and mains were outstanding. Our friend had lasagna and loved it. The waiter staff was attentive and waiter suggested a great bottle of wine that did not break the bank. We have been to AB several times and will be back again soon. We highly recommend it!
