Beautiful atmosphere, the sommelier was exceptional, extremely knowledgeable. The staff was on point, our water glass stayed full. The food was delicious the appetizers to the main course to the dessert, phenomenal. We’ll be back for the tasting menu for sure.

Some places say that they are 'an experience' and don't have the legs to back it up.

Amorette backs it up.

We had the eleven course tasting menu and from beginning to end it was incredible. The staff were amazing, with great recommendations With a wine pairing that somehow managed to go well with the entire meal. The surprise was half the fun, and I know the staff that brought out each course were overjoyed by my reactions to each new, beautiful and interesting dish.

Cannot recommend more highly.

There was not a single good course. It was wildly overpriced. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I’m so glad Amorette opened again. It was an awesome experience. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff is so professional. Lots of wow factors. I would have liked my meat medium rare. They don’t give you the opportunity to have it cooked to your preference. My meat was well done.

Came across his pretentious because it appeared that the appearance and the cleverness of the food preparation was more important than the taste. We had the 11 course tasting menu and only two or three dishes were truly memorable. We then had to wait 30 minutes for the final showpiece dessert which tasted like nothing. The wine pairings were good but the smallest forget that my wife doesn't drink red wine. Overall very expensive and a bit disappointing

We went to amorette to celebrate our anniversary and did the 11-course tasting menu. Chef did a great job incorporating my need for a gluten-free dining experience. It was a wonderful experience that was immersive, creative, and some of the best food I have ever eaten. We will definitely be coming back!

Really cool experience, with interesting and tasty dishes. Did the 6 tasting menu, and really enjoyed it. It did take a loooong time to desert to be ready for us, but it was really good. Service was great except for before desert when we didn't have anyone come to see how we were doing during the 30+ minute wait for desert - we would've ordered more drinks, has we known it we be so long of a wait.
Really good experience overall though.

Humble Lancaster has hosted this restaurant and the best meal I’ve had on any continent. Unexpected was the meal goes beyond good food but almost every sense and aspect of the meal is considered and perfected. We each did the 11 course meal, which was an experience as much as dinner, but it is not for timid eaters. Would recommend a la cart for those with specific tastes.

Price to match, but worth it for our wedding anniversary. Would attend again for another very special occasion.

Last evening, I had a fantastic experience at Amorette. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff was wonderful. So much effort was put into every course, it was a delight. The staff made everyone feel so comfortable and was willing to share their knowledge to make the meal even more interesting. It was wonderful.

Our first time to Amorette and we shouldn't have waited so long! Atmosphere is awesome and it felt like you were in NYC or LA and not Lancaster. Food was so creative and tasty; drinks were unique and very good also. Service was top notch. Don't hesitate to go!

Gabriel was delightful as our food ambassador. All of the staff was lovely and personable. Thierry was knowledgeable and passionate about the wine and picked a very good varietal to pair with the tasting menu. Each course was well thought out and though some of the courses weren’t our style, the stars of the night were the turbo course, the can of tuna, and the dragon’s breath course.

Very good food, clean establishment and staff is very nice. Like others have mention, it's more of a high concept dining experience, many dishes are like art and have unique presentations. They were able to accommodate my young son so he could get something more suited for a kid.

Why only 4 stars:
Went there for a birthday. Looked and studied the web site. Was looking forward to trying the tasting menu, but knew others in my party would not get it. When we got there they told us we had to all either get the tasting menu or all get the al carte menu. What made it worst was I bought a $300 gift card online so family members wouldn't try to pay for the dinner. The waitress said that the person who called to confirm the reservation should of told us of that, I 100% know they did not. I almost asked for the manager to tell them this, but let it go even though I wish it was more transparent. The worst thing was when we had to watch other tables experience the tasting menu. Even at the end the waitress said come back again to try the tasting menu ... I didn't know if she was trying to take a shot at us because we were disappointed that we couldn't order two different ways. I highly suggest that the restaurant puts this on their web site and maybe even have a note of this when someone makes a reservation.

Lastly, we tipped over 20% as the service was very good even though we were not able to get the full experience we hoped.

Before arriving at Amorette for a most elegant and creative dining experience, I researched extensively the dreamlike wine list. Yet, on arrival this evening, I found that the wisest decision was to leave any wine pairing decisions in the hands of the highly skilled expert, Thierry Lesparre. Our table was also in the most capable hands of our server, Madison, as she demonstrated all the attributes of a true professional. The artists from the kitchen presented each course from the tasting menu with intrigue, magic, beautiful prose, and with obvious pride. We will return soon.

The tasting menu is such an amazing experience. I recommend asking the sommelier to recommend a wine for each course. The service was exceptional and the knowledge of the staff was as well. Each course was intuitive and unique.

The most exquisite dining experience you will find anywhere in central PA. Not only was the food fabulous, but the presentation was super creative. The service was personal and impeccable.

Kudos to the owners and staff of Amorette for bouncing back, even better than before, after a very tough year!

The new menu did not meet our expectations. Theatre does not go unappreciated with us as we are in the industry but the food depth & flavor and execution needs to be at a higher level than the concept & experience. For the money we spent, we left disappointed that there was more focus on each course’s gimmick vs the temperature, quality and overall flavor of the courses. We wish them luck but hope they take the time to re evaluate each course and make sure everything is executed to perfection to justify the increased prices. For the small 1-2 oz portions on each tasting plate, you have to nail each ingredient, texture and balance of flavor. Our wine experience was delightful and Thierry was exceptional. Everyone was nice and cordial and the vibe is always inviting but the eating experience needs improvement. We really want the place to succeed but in a world where staff is minimal trying to execute a hands on active menu may need a rethinking. In the end just make amazing food that tastes great, present it beautifully and maybe just a dessert experience vs every course. Best of luck to the entire team.

What an experience! What creativity and a feast for the senses! My husband and I so enjoyed our Sunday immersive dinner at Amorette! It’s unlike any restaurant we’ve ever been to, especially in the Lancaster area. The service was impeccable, the restaurant is beautiful, and we loved chatting with sommelier Thierry about our wine choices. For our first visit, we went a la carte - everything was wonderful, particularly the Wagyu which was just out of this world delicious! Chef Rikku came to our table twice and was positively lovely. The whole team made us feel so special and cared for. We are already planning additional visits in the future and hope to experience the Chef’s Table! The whole meal, from start to finish was simply outstanding on every level. Thank you to Chef Rikku and his amazing team. We can’t wait to come back!

Beautiful restaurant and lounge. Stunning.
Food was excellent. The presentations were quite creative. We dined a la carte for this first time.
We will go back for the 6 course, definitely.
The fine service was dutifully and graciously performed by Gabrielle.
We do not drink alcohol because of health reasons but the wine list is the best I have ever seen.
A WOW restaurant. I can see why it is Michelin Awarded.
