    Excellent food and service makes for a special night. Our waiter was so attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. He made excellent suggestions. I understand a romantic atmosphere is a goal, but this restaurant is so dark that reading the menu is a challenge and actually seeing your entree is difficult. Just a little more light would be nice. Overall, Amore’ made for a wonderful evening.

    The food is superb. We had the veal Marsala and pork chop. Highly recommend either. We have been here several times and the food is always amazing. The service is good too. It is noisy but still worth the food experience. It is our favorite place

    We made reservations for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This was our first visit. Our server was Steven and he was outstanding! Our food was really good and the portions are large. We couldn’t finish it all. My only complaint is our seating. With a standing reservation and the occasion, we would have preferred to not be seated right next to a noisy toddler. Hosts should be more mindful when seating. Other than this, everything was really good.

    We always enjoy Amore and love the food and vibe! We were however taken aback by the increase in the prices. We fully understand the price /labor pressures all business face these days but the cost of a meal is close to being prohibitive and outweighs the value of eating at finer restaurants like Amore.

    Sadly we thought the food was average. Certainly not worth the very high price tag! The waiter was ok but never came back to refill drinks or to see if everything was ok! Overall we wouldn’t hurry back.

    I made a reservation for my husbands birthday. Requested seating in the bar. Received a call day of confirming all 👍 . When we arrived they said we had a 20 minute wait and our table was not in the bar 😳. I requested bar seating again and they did make the correction. The Bread is fabulous! Other food is average…. Not worth the wait..
