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.

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.

This restaurant is very convenient if you’re popping down to the Navy Yard! We really enjoyed the ricotta and fig appetizer! Same owners as low speed or but the menu is much improved as far as salad choices and vegetarian options! Will be back!

We had a lovely dinner prior to going to a concert at WellsFargo. Chicken Parm is served a la carte, but uniquely delicate tomato sauce covers the breast with chunks of cheese melting on top. The linguini with shrimp and charred corn (my date ordered) was fresh, light and flavorful.

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!

Met friends before a concert at the Wells Fargo Center. It is a really good location for that because you can park close to the arena and then walk to the restaurant. The menu is small, but the food was very good. My dinner was not prepared with the others at my table and I had to wait 15 minutes after the others were served. Other than that, it was a good experience.

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.
