    Mother’s Day celebration. It's hard to find parking. No luck with street parking. I ended paying at Diamond parking lot, about $9 for two hours. Early dinner, not crowded at all. We had a reservation at the outside patio. The bartender sat us under the big tree. He was friendly and humorous. Our server was prompt and courteous. Service was above par. Saying the food was delicious is an understatement. Everything they prepare and serve in this restaurant is meticulously prepared. You can smell and savor the aroma and the umami of the tapas. The lobster risotto was so good - my kids loved them. And the paella reminded me of our time in Valencia, Spain. It was top-notch. The price is at the higher end but worth it on this beautiful special occasion.

    The service was fantastic and the meal was top notch. A lot of skill went into preparing the wild foraged mushrooms tapas. The Paella was perfect with no shortage of mussels, clams, prawns, calamari, squid and smoky chorizo. The Tempranillo wine pairing was on point as well.

    Food & service was very good! We ordered clams & mussels, patata bravas, olives, gambas ajillo - were all excellent. Burrata salad was good but a little soggy and some of the arugula was yellow. Cannoli for dessert was good too. Will definitely go back!

    Great Flamenco music and dance show. Amor sponsors live performances by local artists almost each week. All the servers, the cooks are really great, it feels like being at home, and all the shows are awesome.

    Went to flamenco night. It was completely packed and extremely loud. We could barely make our order due to the noise, nonetheless have a conversation. The food was extremely underwhelming. Our meals came out over cooked, steak that was supposed to be medium-rare came out well, the chicken dish that came out had vegetables on a skewer that had turned to charcoal (the chicken was the only redeeming quality on the plate). We talked to the owner about our unmet expectations and he had them redone… great! Or so I thought. The med-rare steak I ordered came out (delivered by the owner) well done yet again. We all have bad night’s, I get it. But if I were that owner I’d be embarrassed to serve my customers, for the second time, a meal that was overcooked. If I’m allowed to name names here, the waitress, Noel, was great! They were short staffed due to a no show, she was run ragged, but still took the time to provide quality service. Will I ever come back? Maybe. If I do, it certainly won’t be on a flamenco night unless I don’t want to be able to enjoy my guests and a casual conversation and they greatly improve the quality control on food.

    A bit disappointed in the food. The wine was fabulous. Had the paella with clams and mussels, very tasty. But the rice too salty. The place was busy and with Tapas going out every few, one server was not enough. Will be back. Great wine selections. Fun spot.

    Our 2nd visit after impressive first time. Three of us seated at the one table in a wine bottle selection area near front of restaurant. Table and chairs were uncomfortable metal outdoor type. A bit cramped. Staff needed to pull some wines while we were seated and it became almost comical as they were looking around us to see what they were after. Restaurant not very busy at 5:15 but seemed an uncomfortable wait before waitron arrived. Drink order placed. Two glasses wine served quickly but the one cocktail arrived 7-8 minutes later. Would rather have been served at same time than wondering if it had been forgotten. Made mistake of ordering food all at once. Everything arrived haphazardly as it does with tapas. Will order as we want things to come out next time. Gazpacho seemingly well priced was a tiny serving of clear liquid. Nice flavor but poor value. Mushrooms tasty. Gambas flavorful but undercooked. Bread plate with three butters was great. Overall food seemed inconsistent. Waitron was very good otherwise and in the end gifted us three partial pours of wine for dessert. I really want to love this place but am struggling a bit.

    Great food, great drinks. Service was decent, and the ambience was wonderful. We visited for the first time to enjoy a belly dancer. She was wonderful and she left early due to what appeared to be lack of interest from other customers. The owners were friendly and engaging. Maybe Tacoma isn't ready for this place. That makes me sad, because it makes Tacoma better.

    Yes, Yes, Yes!!! The rave reviews in various local papers are true! Finally popped into Amor with my Love. We had a lovely wait-recommended Spanish wine along with their $95 set flight of tapas! Everything was delicious and amazing! The services is impeccable! There when you need it, water refills that you don't even notice, dishes coming and going quickly, ready to answer questions/needs, and friendly comfortable. This is a well-run restaurant where people seem to enjoy being on this team. Met the owner too - you can tell Amor is a labor of Love! The space is gorgeous with a slightly more casual area up front with the bar (and what looks like a very nice offering of cocktails), and a lovely dining area further back by the busy kitchen window (love that)!). We sat in the dining room and were glad we had reservations because it quickly filled with happy people enjoying their libations and bites! And the food again! Yes! We do a lot of our own tapas/charcuterie at home, so we have a pretty high bar and are often underwhelmed. Amor was absolutely fabulous...sending out very unique tapas, beautifully plated, and with flavors that intrigue the senses! Looking forward to trying the rest of the menu! Definitely recommend reservations in either the dining room or bar. I think they have an outdoor patio, so that could be epic on a warm day/evening!!

    First time, and I will be back! When you walk in, the soft lighting, attractive low key decor (stunning back bar), and tantalizing smells of food to come brings a smile to your face. Staff spot on, kind and knowledgable. Food delish. The reason for 4-stars (keep reading past this part - the meal was THE BEST!): Noise level was pretty loud and could be distracting, there was a large party but there could be a better noise barrier to soften the noise. To create an even better dining experience, the acoustics need to be addressed and I would mix the two top on the wall by the kitchen-the table is in the traffic zone a bit tight- you relax to a point before someone walks by brushing your shoulder or chair. The Meal!! Portions perfect- presentation delightful, taste- AMAZING. We enjoyed a glass of Cava and Chardonnay, dove into raspberry mixed greens with goat cheese, followed by lovely foraged mushrooms in the most delightful light creamy garlic sauce, then we fell in love with the rack of lamb (presented beautifully) laying on a gorgeous Moroccan style cous cous…every bite was flavorful the texture was spot on. All in all a good night at Amore!

    This was my third time eating at Amor and everything was good up until the end when an employee rushed us out and told us another party was waiting. We had reservations for 11:15 and at 12:30 were informed of another party waiting. We were dinning with friends we hadn’t seen in a while and catching up. I have never been approached in such a manner at any restaurant and was very disappointed and felt put out. Needless to say even though I’ve loved this place the environment the food and the same waitress I’ve had twice now, I won’t be returning solely based off this interaction. It was unprofessional and frankly rude. There was no time limit on our reservation and I’ve sat at many other restaurants including this one for longer than an hour and 15 min! So disappointing and hopefully this helps prevent this from happening to another party.

    Sadly they were out of many things I wanted to order (scallops, all sangria, Sangiovese, etc…). I knew the tapas orders would be small so we ordered several. The potatas bravas were delicious, the $16 salad is a pass (it could be nice if the arugula had not been SO prevalent as to overwhelm the dish and make getting a forkful challenging). Several of the things we ordered were “new items” per the waitress, such as the peach spritzer I ordered in place of my first choice sangria. My wife’s wine came quickly while I waited about 15 minutes for my spritzer. Unsure why it took so long. One of the new dishes we tried had a couple kind of onions prepared in different ways. As the waitress didn’t explain what anything was when it was delivered I’m only able to tell you that one of the onions resembling a head of garlic was delicious while the other, which looked and felt in the mouth like a tiny leek was scorched to burnt and too woody to chew properly. We only had one bite of that one. The shrimp was delicious! The butter board butters were very tasty but served on what felt like stale bread rather than crostini or toasted. It made us wish they had a cheese board for the bread as that seemed like it would have fit better with the hard bread. Unfortunately they no longer have just a cheese board and my wife and I are pescatarian. Overall the ambiance is lovely and warm. It can get a little loud in there but it wasn’t something that ruined the romantic vibe. The highlight of the evening was the mushroom risotto! Cooked perfectly and the mushrooms are marinated in wine that is light but flavorful. I’m glad we got that last so it was what lingered in our mind about the meals. We may go back but will likely sit at the bar and just share the risotto and some wine. I hope they get more wine by the glass to try!

    I must tell you that This is one of the best night outs I’ve had in quite some time. From the minute I walked in the door the service and attention to detail was top notch. The restaurant and the ambiance itself is quite nice but the real winner is the cocktails, tapas and the wine, Paella excellent too.Let me tell you. Do yourself a favor and spend an evening here and you won’t be disappointed

    We had a pleasant time for several hours as a large group of ladies for brunch. We were pleasantly surprised by the kindness, the quality of the brunch dishes, and the addition of bottomless mimosas so common elsewhere, but sorely lacking south of Seattle. Definitely worth a trip and we will be going back to try the tapas and wine for dinner

    I would give zeros if that were an option. We had an 8 pm reservation. It took them 10 minutes to “see if our table was ready” although it was 80% empty. Then it took another 10 minutes for someone to come say hello and tell us the kitchen was closing in 10 minutes. Usually with tapas you order gradually but we scrambled to order a few things. I can’t have gluten so they gave me a gf menu but each thing I ordered they said they really could t do. I ended up with shrimp, some potatoes and some mushrooms. Tiny portions. My guest and I each had 1 glass of ok wine plus very little nibbles. $130 later we wanted to go through a drive thru to actually eat. We didn’t though. I ended up having gluten unknowingly and getting pretty sick despite having had very limited little bites of basic food. I would just avoid. I absolutely love going out for tapas and wine but this place is so repriced and completely disorganized staff. I won’t go back just say no.
