                            Amorette was a fantastic experience. Everything from the cocktails to the desserts was handcrafted to perfection and completely unique. The presentation of the food was one of a kind and I highly recommend keeping your camera handy to take pictures.

                            Enjoyed less than 1/2 of the dishes. Great wine sommelier. He made the meal much better. You start with some bread and butter, butter was very good and flavorful, but bread itself was very dry. The flavor in the scallop dish was delicious and it was cooked perfectly. Following that is a soft shell crab dish. There seemed to be a little too much going on and they reused the seaweed foam that was in the scallop dish. After was the Lamb Tartare. It tasted like I was just taken out of the freezer. The mustard ice cream was good but the tartare itself tasted frozen and flavorless. They came out with a palate cleanser which was a sorbet that included pop rocks…I guess if I was a child I would have enjoyed it. For the main course we had Elk Tenderloin. One of the dishes was cooked perfectly, the sauce complimented the elk along with the crispy layered potato. My dish on the other hand had an over cooked tenderloin. They took 3 tries until it was cooked to the temperature needed. We were both excited for dessert. Our server described it as integrating the spring flavor from a flower garden. It was exactly that if you were going for the natural dirt taste from the garden. We took a few bites and pushed our dishes to the side; the server came to pick it up and did not question or full dessert plate. So overall the tasting menu was not up to what we were expecting. I would recommend coming and doing a la carte. We were so excited to try this place but were sorely disappointed.

                            The atmosphere is quietly refined. Do dress up. This is not a jeans and tee shirt experience. The staff are attentive and will pamper you without being intrusive. The appetizers we ordered (a vegetarian tartar and soup) were in normal appetizer portions for one. The main course was modest. The desserts varied in quantity. This is a place to go and eat slowly, savor both the food and the experience, not a place to overdue it on food.

                            The restaurant exceeded our expectations. It was fabulous ! The wait staff 'ambassadors' were very personal and took care of every need or desire we had. The area is decorated and designed with lush, rich fabrics with different textures to feed your sensibilities. It lets you know you something marvelous is about to happen. The music was classical and sedate, it did not interfere with the food experience but complemeted it in. Do not waver, get there soon. You will not be disappointed. We live in the NYC area and eat at Michelin star restaurants whenever we can. This is right up there but at a fraction of the price. Loved it and will go again when we are back in Lancaster ! Give a big hello to Theirry the wonderful Sommelier .

                            The food, service, and ambience were all outstanding. The only issue is that the restaurant was way too expensive for what it is. The same goes for the extensive and excellent wine list. I am familiar with wine prices, and the wines were typically 4X or 5X retail prices. For example, a Chateau Cantemerle (Bordeaux) that I had bought for $35 was on the list for either $185 or $195. (I do not remember the exact price.) Likewise, the $50 corkage fee was absurd. I would recommend the restaurant, but only for a special occasion.

                            We’ve been out of town for three weeks on a Viking cruise around Italy, Croatia, Montenegro and Greece. We were treated like royalty and we kept saying this cruise is like going to Amorette. We love your service and food. I hope it never changes.

                            We did the Chef’s Table Blind Menu w/Wine Pairings and it was such a great experience. The kitchen is clean, well run and the chefs were engaging. Appreciated the high level of attention and creativity in food preparation, flavors and presentation.

                            Customer service is unmatched. Ambiance and presentation are absolutely incredible. Was disappointed in the menu this visit. While the food looked incredible, it was not as good as my last visit. $7 water and $13 mocktails added to the already very high priced cost. Overall had a nice time but don't believe we will be back.

                            Ambiance and service were outstanding although a little stuffy. The food was sparse and very pretentious. Four of spent almost $500 for drinks and mostly appetizers, which were not at all filling

                            We last dined at Amorette pre Covid. Last evenings dinner was a major disappointment. The food was mediocre and the presentation was pretentiously quirky. The only positive was the friendly attentive service.

                            We went for the Valentines Day prefix dinner at $175/each. A bit pricy, but worth it for special occasions. The service was beyond spectacular! We had several people serving our courses but Gabriel was our Culinary Ambassador and he was friendly, funny and attentive. He made the experience relaxing and removed the “stuffy “ from the atmosphere. The culinary presentations were just fabulous! Prior reviews talked about small portions of food, so we didn’t expect much. I have to say while the portions were not what most would expect for a meal, they were just enough and we left very satisfied. The care, expertise, and creativity of the chef were obvious in all the plates. While the prices may limit Amorette to special occasions, we will return!
