Food was delicious and restaurant has a great atmosphere. There is also a large patio with bar and outside seating. Great location for dinner before a game or concert! We parked in the Navy Yard and walked over after dinner.

Been there 3 times. Food was better the 1st 2 times. It was prior to a show at Wells Fargo Center and I don’t think they could handle the crowd as all the food was cold.

This is a great place, and particularly before a stadium venue - very convenient! The menu items are varied. We thoroughly enjoyed the small and large plates, as well as the salads we chose. The wine list is extensive. Our server was friendly and attentive. The restaurant is also very reasonable as well. Highly recommend!

My friend and I went here prior to a concert at WFC. When we walked in, we were a bit concerned: the bar was hopping and loud and we just wanted something more mellow. We were seated upstairs, which was like a different world. Not crowded (though it filled in during our meal) and much quieter.

Food was quite good, though menu is relatively limited. Service very attentive (I wasn't drinking alcohol but they kept the refills coming anyway,) and the bill was reasonable. There aren't a lot of good dining options beyond pizza/bar food this close to the Sports Complex; this is one of the best.

I won't hesitate to return.

Stopped here before the Elton John concert. Food and drinks were great. Our waiter, Christian, was friendly and fast with our drinks and food. The hostess was very nice and sat us quickly. This place is more upscale than the restaurants near Wells Fargo center, so if you are looking for cheap bar food , you will not find it here. I will definitely go back and recommend to my friends.

Went to Bar Amis because it was local and the menu looked good. We weren’t disappointed. We decided to sit at the bar and make up our own “sampling” menu from the list of items. The bartender provided excellent service and actually had the kitchen make things in succession so we had time to enjoy each thing before the next came. We had a great time, the drinks were good and we will definitely go back again.

Met friends here prior to a concert. Great happy hour vibe with an eclectic menu. Busy so service was not the fastest, but worked for our time table. Definitely will keep it in mind next time we are looking to do something before a game or a concert.

The food was disappointing. Caesar salad too salty, rigatoni average, the gnocchi special composed of fried or baked gnocchi which were like dry little dough balls. Had the s'mores for dessert, but even they were uninspired with a couple of scoops of ice cream, topped with marshmallow sauce and four graham crackers stuck in the side of the dish. I've had better Italian food at little mom & pop restaurants elsewhere, so it's not worth the drive to the Navy Yard.

The crowd was scarce. Those who we were sharing the bar area with (1 other group) were obnoxiously loud and yelling profanities.
The waitstaff waited ten minutes to bring us water, even though our waitress as the bartender and watched us enter the building.
Overpriced food for low quality. The peaches and tomatoes on our caprese were not ripe, and even though we paid $16 for the meatball sandwich, the sandwich and fries came out cold, obviously had been sitting for a while.

My friends license expired 1 week ago and the manager didn’t let her purchase drinks when she’s from Colorado and so going to the DMV is not easy. Pretty bothered by this.

This was our first time at Bar Amis. We had been in this location before when it was Lospeido.
The service and food was good. Even though the waiter brought me a meal that was not what I ordered
I ate it and it was fine. I think the menu could use a little more variety of choice for entrees. otherwise, I recommend it.

Great location/views. Professional wait staff. Cool decor and outdoor seating. The cocktails however fell flat.. for summer they were not creative or refreshing! More seafood options would be nice to add to the menu. Desert menu also needs a bit more variety. The price point though was well appointed.

Service was very slow and then our meals were a little reversed. Mine had dressing and my friend's was on the side, the opposite of what we requested. Couldn't find waiter for refills on our drinks. But food was very good and spot is convenient for our business. Perhaps it was just due to the outdoor seating that just recently started again. Will continue to dine there.

We chose this location b/c it was close to our hotel. The reviews looked great.. but they did not mention anything about the fact that the portions are exceptionally small for the price. One piece of chicken pam was $19... no side of pasta. The pasta was $10 additional. The server and manager were understanding of our shock and helped the situation by removing the cost of the pasta, but seriously?! The menu looks incredible and yet the quesadillas looked more like mini crepes and the cost of bbq popcorn was a bit inflated. This is not an easy place to get to, but I probably would have returned if it wasn't for the cost. It's not worth going out of your way to eat there. It's a shame b/c everyone was nice about it, but I am not paying $50 for chicken parm and one drink.
