The food was okay. Not amazing. The atmosphere was unique and aesthetically pleasing. Possibly the best part of the restaurant. Good service, kind servers and bartenders. Parking is a great bonus.

Our first time dining at Bar Amis went well. We did the special, Valentine's Day menu for $85 per couple and $20 extra for a bottle of wine. What a great value. The atmosphere was nice. The food came out very quickly and was tasty. The service was very friendly and unpretentious. The hostess was also very friendly. In fact, all of the staff went out of their way to smile and genuinely make guests feel welcome.

I have had Chris as my server several times and he continues to impress me. He is very polite & accommodating each time.
I need to avoid Gluten and the menu marked with GF symbols is most helpful.
Chris always double checks the ingredients with the chef, if I have a concern.
It does get loud on Friday / Saturday nights. Whoever, overall an enjoyable experience.

Tonight I took my father to Bar Amis for the first time. I wanted to show him what happened to the old Navy office. He was very impressed with the design and how they retained the heritage of the building. My dad I enjoyed the food. His favorite was the Ricotta Cheese with Figs.

This a great menu with a lot of healthy choices. The grilled avocado is an unusual treat and the salads are huge. The cacio and Pepe pasta was a delicious surprise. The space is cool and it packs up for lunch and then quiets down for the after work crowd.

Pre-Sixers game dinner. Excellent food & service in an interesting building that used to be the Navy Yard Guard House. Nice selection of wine & beers too!

Interesting menu, reasonably priced. Calamari was outstanding, as was the buffalo cauliflower. Definitely worth visiting - a great pre-game spot for sure!

Not great not terrible. We had a variety of orders at our table - my steak was overcooked, took awhile for the server to come back so it was that tough decision of whether I wanted to sit through the rest of the meal with no food at all while the rest of the table ate. I have low blood sugar and was so hungry too. Unsure if we'd give it another shot in the future or not.

Stopped in at Bar Amis the night before the NFL playoff game. We chose to sit at a bartop in the bar area. Anwar our bartender was excellent! Warm , friendly and quick with the drinks and food. He made me a fantastic martini! Would definitely visit again!

We stopped here for dinner on the way to the airport. I was very impressed! Really glad we found this place as we will be back. The food (we had appetizers and drinks) was creative and delicious. We had buffalo cauliflower, hummus platter and grilled avocado and we are both craving it again. I had a twist on a whiskey sour that was amazing - truly one of the better cocktails in my travels. We think this may be our new stop whenever we are heading into Philly.

Looked up restaurants with a festive atmosphere. Bar Amis popped up. Food was delicious but the festive atmosphere was no where to be found. Disappointed in that.

We were pleasantly surprised with our experience at Bar Amis. We had never been here and wanted to try something new. We are so happy that we ventured to this end of Broad Street. The service was exceptional. Our waitress was extremely attentive super friendly and explained everything. The food was phenomenal!! Thank you Bar Amis for a tremendous dinner.

What a superstar experience!
My sister wanted to have her birthday dinner here because of an unforgettable dish she had on a previous visit.
Well, the pasta dish she wanted was no longer on the menu. I contacted the restaurant prior to the reservation date and they agreed to make it for her! Talk about going above and beyond! We both had a great time and will visit again soon!

I usually love Bar Amis but I barely ate my food this time- my salad with added salmon was soggy and the salmon was barely cooked. Was on a business lunch and wasn't able to eat where I recommended this restaurant to my client.

A group of three of us were seated for a business lunch upstairs at Bar Amis just inside the Phila Navy Yard. While there were many other tables around us talking, it was quiet enough to have a clear conversation without having to speak loudly. That is often underappreciated.
The hot sandwiches and chicken parm were very good, and the service was also very good. Good selection of local beers on tap. I enjoyed everything and would come again for both business and personal occasions. It's not a top, top restaurant in Philadelphia so that's why I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars, but of course I would recommend it to others to go there.

First time at venue. Food and drink were tasty. Very convenient to Wells Fargo Arena & stadiums so would absolutely go back for pre-event meal. Much better than xfinity options. Moderately priced but menu was somewhat limited. Free parking at venue.

Visiting from out of town and we stopped in because it was close to our hotel. The service was exceptional, the food was very tasty and our cocktails were great as well. I asked the server for a recommendation on a dinner option and she suggested the pasta dish. It was an excellent recommendation, it tasted fantastic. We sat outside and watched the sun set among the Naval Ships and were able to relax. I will be visiting Philly again, and will definitely make a stop at Bar Amis!

Everything was wonderful from start to finish! Our waiter Deney was great! Very attentive and not over bearing. He was quick and friendly and the food was great. A nice pre concert date spot. The cacio e Pepe and chamomile whiskey sour are a must have!

Went here on date night before a concert at Wells Fargo Center. We were rushed for time and the staff was very accommodating to get our order placed right away. The food came out quickly and was cooked perfectly. We were seated in a large room upstairs which was a little noisy, but it didn’t bother us on this occasion. It wouldn’t be ideal if you’re looking for a more private dining experience. Great for a casual dining experience.

Great local Navy Yard area hang out but not just for happy hour. Dinner selections are as equally amazing as their happy hour offerings. Great outdoor patio for al fresco dining. Perfect for a date night or simply chilling out after work. Love this place!

Have visited a few times so I think I owed a review.
Have been treated very nicely each time...fun staff.. from the every happy front hostess...throughout
the entire wait staff. Bartender, Anwar can make anything you like and do it with flair. He even gets your drinks just right when you tell him how your like it.. Good wait staff, even on busy concert nights.
The ever moving, energetic Mgr Marina is everywhere.. but with hawk eyes watching everything that's going on. I know restaurants, and this team is pretty good..hope they can keep em.
Oh..and food...did I mention that its a Vetri kitchen staff and food....'nuff said' ..
Try it...
