This was a great place to meet my relative who was staying at an airport hotel. It was easy to get to, the parking was free, the food selection was good and the quality was wonderful. They also thought it would be a good place for a meal before or after their next Flyers game. This was a surprise find since I have read about the Navy Yard but never been there.

First floor was freezing, staff said always cold, nothing you can do. Seems odd..

Bartender mildly friendly. Seemed hard for him.

Good food and convenient to stadiums but it was the drabest restaurant in Philadelphia. The interior upstairs was so dull that I felt like I was eating in a second grade public school classroom. Other than how disappointing the decor was, everything was great.

Great spot in South Philadelphia. Service was great, very attentive and friendly. Food was well prepared though steak was a little over cooked. Plenty of parking for those who want to venture out and not have to search for parking. Priced reasonably and portions were large.

Food came out warm, not hot. Service was bad, server never came to check on us and stood chatting with a coworker for 15 minutes while we waited. Never asked if we wanted drink refills either. Very pricy.

The services was friendly and professional, but the food is only merely good. Not worth the trek to the Naval Yard when there are better Italian places closer to the city.

Went there on Friday night via Open Table reservation. Do not call the restaurant since the person answering our visit said there were no tables for one hour; Open Table reserved a table immediately.

Food was ok. We had burger and meatball sandwich. The bread on each seemed old and not fresh. They cooked the meat and presented it well. Though I did not expect goat cheese versus provolone on the meatball sandwich, it work well an was unique.

We had water and ordered wine. The water service was very good; nice glasses, chill water, and clear wine bottle. Nice touch. The wine was ok and poured correctly but seemed cut with water. If true very naughty for $9 a glass.

The entrance to restaurant is confusing since it is to the bar area and the main dining room is upstairs. There was no one stationed for us to report to for our reservation at the bar or upstairs. However, once seated, there was plenty of staff to serve the guests. There was also a manager or two that monitored service quality and helped buss tables.

Overall, it as an adequate: fair but overpriced food and attentive staff to make up for restaurant design issues.

This was our second time dining at Bar Amis. It was another wonderful experience. We had dinner before an event at the Wells Fargo Center and it is the perfect location. Food and service are fantastic. Great atmosphere too!

The waiter was very understanding of my companion and me overstaying our welcome. We were never rushed. My burger was over cooked and my cauliflower wasn’t crispy. At one point a different waitress came over and asked if I was ok with turkey on my panini. Neither of us ordered a panini. The food cane quickly. I would go back.

I was really excited to try Bar Amis because we live right near Amis Trattoria and have been impressed with their food/dining experience for years and was interested to see what a more “casual” version of the restaurant would be like. Bar Amis is nothing more than the sloppy sister restaurant to this - poorly executed dishes, lazy and very sloppy service and DIRTY utensils! SO disappointing and definitely not worth the trek to the Naval Yard from Center City.

Our open Table reservation wasn't in their records but they accommodated us. Amazing food. Had the brussel sprouts, the buffalo cauliflower and the Butternut Squash sandwich. Took a real chance on those and they were amazing!! Bread was unreal. The taste was spectacular. Outstanding service.

Wow- This place is a true find as it has fabulous food, terrific staff, outstanding vibe with great cocktails and parking in Philadelphia - My friend and I each had a different specialty cocktail which was tempting to have more than one for they were delicious. We started with a roasted buffalo cauliflower dish that was crisp and flavorful. We both choose the salads that were fresh, satisfying done just right. We were seated exactly on time and never felt rushed although the restaurant was almost full.
