Very disappointed with our meal. The menu was nothing like the one posted on OpenTable. There were literally four entrees. No specials. Food was just ok. Would not go back.
Great nachos, wings, and boucatini. Confused with the service aspect because there were multiple waitstaff attending to our table and we didn’t know who to order something from...I guess all of them?
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.
The food and service was good, however, the dining area is awful. Black tables and that’s it. Extremely unattractive
Bar Amis has it all -- great service, innovative and delicious food, comfortable atmosphere.
Great food, great location! Would definitely go again!
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.
Really a great place to have dinner, which was fantastic.
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.
We love Bar Amis. I would like to see them either adjust the menu or expand the menu to offer possibly more sandwich options and/or entrees
Been here several times , we always enjoy it . Food , Service and atmosphere are great !
Food was fine - nothing special. Decor was uninspiring. Service was very good.
Huge salads, fresh salmon and a hearty meatball sandwich- great well prepared meal. The service was on point, our server was time efficient & pleasant. The atmosphere is loud. There were only a few tables full when we went in, but the echo was a bit much. Limited food selection, but what we had was really good. I’d definitely return.
While today was too cold for outdoor seating, I've enjoyed eating outside on previous visits. Food was very good.....ricotta & fig bruschetta & cauliflower appetizers were great. Everyone enjoyed their entrée's & the freshly made rosemary chips.
Not really an Italian restaurant as billed. Food was fine but a bit overpriced once you added the add Ons; salmon in a beet and arugula salad cost $22!
My husband was pretty ill after he had the steak! His friend also couldn’t eat the steak! Bad cut of meat and very fatty!
We had never been there as was excited to go, but ultimately very disappointed!
Good food and drink. Convenient for quick meals before 76ers games.
The restaurant was ill prepared for a concert crowd which seems ridiculous given its location. Food was terrible... my friend’s panini was cold and my salmon was raw. The service was even worse. The host took care of us as well as he could, but the server only checked on us once. No silverware with our app, just reallllly really slow terrible experience. The irritating part was that even before we ordered, we said we had a show to get to ....Since it seemed that several people were complaining about food taking forever and coming out wrong, I asked the host if we should go somewhere else and he assured us they were all caught up and everything would be fine.
The food was amazing but super slow. Had to rush eating the main course to make it to the show on time. Thanks
We went for an early dinner and sat outside. Service was poor, long wait for waiter. The waiter lost our order so it needed to be re entered. Long wait for drinks and then I very long wait to get the check. Waiter seemed overwhelmed and when I asked the manager to chase down our bill it still took 15 mins to get the bill paid. Overall the food was good but not good enough to overcome the poor service. I would likely not come back based on the service.
I took my 6yr old daughter for a quick dinner before a concert at Wells Fargo Center.
It was busy/noisy outside on the patio for happy hour, but upstairs dining was perfect for a quieter dinner.
The waitstaff was all very friendly and accommodating. The food was fresh and delicious.
Although this restaurant is off the beaten path it is worth the little extra effort. It is in an historic building that has been done over in an industrial look which matches the buildings age. Food was very good. The bruschetta with ricotta and fig was outstanding and the homemade pasta dish was excellent. The added chicken was just okay. My wife had salmon and vegetables that was very very good.
Service was excellent and we came back after a Sixers game for a drink at the bar which was very nice. We would definitely go again especially if we had Sixers tickets since the stadium is a short walk from their free parking.
We were in from out of town and had a nice meal after walking through the Navy Yard.
Great service, delicious food!
We had a table reservation and decided to eat at the bar. The bar tender was very knowledgeable about both wines and beers and also the menu. Everything we had, that he recommended was excellent. Would definitely go back. Much better menu than the previous one. More options.
The brussel sprouts with lemon are very well prepared!
Went before a sixers game for convenience. The Brussels sprouts were good as was the tuna sandwich. The Caesar was very salty and the kale salad with quinoa they forgot the quinoaN
As La Speido this was our go to spot for pre Sixers games due to the convenience to the stadium and the great grilled octopus.
But as Bar Amis we took friends pre game and it was pretty disappointing. The restaurant was empty yet we had to ask for the window table as the hostess tried to seat us next to the wall. There were literally no other diners this early yet the waiter couldn’t be bothered to provide any information unless we pried it out of him. Our beer choice wasn’t available so instead of offering an alternative, he said he’d let us know when the bar came up with a new replacement keg. Time went by and the guys got their drinks and the waiter tried to get us to order dinner before suggesting a different beer for the women, we had to ask him.
Our food selections were ok, meatballs were good, our friend said they were really dense. I had a mushroom panini that was just creamy, could barely taste any mushrooms in it. My husband says the Sicilian tuna was pretty good. Service was marginal the whole time. It was mainly the poor service that was a turnoff. Oh and the grilled octopus is off the menu 😞 we’d probably still recommend this for a pre sports event but the new owners need to step up the game to keep up the reputation.
It was okay. Didn’t love the parmesan on the popcorn. Didn’t love the grilled cheese. My date said her burger was slippery. But everyone was very nice. So the food was meh, but the experience was nice. Probably wouldn’t go back.
Bar Amis is (sadly) terrible. This was our third attempt and unfortunately, it has gotten progressively worse each time. When it comes to the food, they completely missed the bar. The first visit was just after they opened so I chalked the poor food quality up to working out kinks. The second visit provided food that was worse than the first visit but the outdoor seating area is quite pleasant. Over time I've had the following:
-Brussel sprouts: ask for extra water - way too salty.
-Avocado toast: very small with very little avocado
-Nachos: Unconventional, not tasty, not worth it.
-Mussels: I wish I would have read other reviews referencing the mussels before ordering. The bread was so salty it was uneatable. But it didn't really matter because the broth was bad too.
-Rigatoni bolognese: Decent flavor, pasta overcooked mush
-Lemon chicken: small, overpriced and dry.
They maintain the same cocktails, beer, and wine list.
I would NOT recommend Bar Amis. It really is a bummer because their location is great, the vibe is nice and their outdoor area is great too. But overall, their food is really bad and overpriced, and the service is mediocare.
We dropped our kids off at a sixers game and were looking fora spot to eat and get a drink. I have enjoyed the other Vetri restaurants so I figured this place would be good. Atmosphere was nice and I’m sure in the spring summer early fall the outside would be great. My disappointment came from the food. We ordered a fig ricotta cheese dish and a melted Parmesan cheese dish. The fig dish was good but had a strange smell, we ate it anyway. Lol. The Parmesan was a very small amount of melted cheese in a ramekin with Cecii that were hard dry and undercooked.
I ordered the bucatini that was so strange. I thought it would be reminiscent of a pesto since that’s how they described it but it had peanut butter in it and was just plain weird. Half Chinese ? And the pasta was totally undercooked. They missed al dente by 2 minutes, my husband got the grilled octopus which was very tender however they paired it with crushed kalamata olives which over powered and ruined the flavor of the octopus. Too bad. I wanted to like it. And I know they are no longer affiliated with Vetri but since there is a connection they need to get it right or more people will be disappointed.
The restaurant was so cold people had their coats on. We asked that they turn the heat up but they made no effort to accommodate. This reattach
Great find! Friendly & attentive service. Server was knowledgeable of gluten free options. Food was delicious. Will certainly return again and again.
Can’t believe this is part of the Vetri Fanily
Our server was great food was not
Mussels were solid but bread for dipping was inedible
And that is part of eating mussels...dipping the bread in the broth
The meatball hoagie...only 2 of 4 meatballs had any sauce...two were dry and again bread was burnt and not in a good way.
Won’t be going back
Absolutely loved Bar Amis! Food, service, ambiance, all rolled up into a perfect package. Will definitely be returning on our next trip into Philly.
The food has gotten worse with the new ownership.
This was our 4th time at Bar Amis, we absolutely love it. I would highly recommend it to anyone. It is perfect for pre/post sports events. Food is unique and excellent, service was also excellent.
My Octpus was awesome, my friens pork chop was just ok. They have a great mule made with homemade ginger ale.
The octupus was fabulous as were the muscles in a diablo sauce
Made a reservation for a special occasion about 3 weeks prior for 12:30. When we arrived (10 min late - I tried to call but was put and left on hold) we had to wait for them to set up a table. So much for making a reservation so that they are ready for us! We were 5 and they squeezed us at a table for 4 with one person hanging in the aisle. There were numerous other tables to seat us where we would be at three tables instead of two and fit more comfortably. We asked them to move us, they did. We ordered an appetizer and lunch. Lunch came out first. I told them to forget the app since our lunch was already out. She brings it anyway and I told her we didn't want it. She says, no, have it. My sister-in-law was the last one to finish and the waitress cleared the table reaching over her while she ate with no apology at all. Lingering there for a few minutes cleaning up. Very unprofessional. Check comes and they were charging us for the app. I told her they need to take it off as it came late. She talks with her manager, comes over and slaps the bill back down and says it's on me. Terrible attitude. Will never return here again. Service is a very big part of a good dining experience. This was not one!
