We enjoyed everything, from the small plates to start (the crispy sprouts and calamari) to the different pasta dishes each of us ordered. Portions are generous without overdoing it. We took some of the pasta home, which is great. The beer was good as well, a Belgian style wit with a sour taste. Service was good as well, very attentive. Best is that our server took our silverware away after the appetizers and brought clean forks and knives. Do you know how few restaurants do that these days? That makes a big difference. While we don’t have much reason to be in the navy yard regularly, I would welcome the chance to return. And to eat outside as well, good use of the umbrellas.

Would only recommend if you are going for drinks and bar snacks. My entree was inedible and my husband's food gave him intestinal upset. Service was inept and management really needs to visit to get this restaurant back on track. Great location and ambience. Sad that the kitchen and service staff are not up to par.

We come here regularly, and it's always good. I love the rotating salad choice, as well as the popcorn too. Bring back the BBQ popcorn!

Will not be going back anytime soon. I have been there several times before and food and service was always friendly and delicious, however I always dined inside. This visit I brought my sister from Florida and since it was nice out we decided to sit outside. Well that’s about all we did. Ten minutes later no one ever acknowledged us even though there were several waitstaff walking around. There were only about 5 other tables so not overly busy either. If you go, food is typically very good but suggest inside for dinner as obviously waitstaff outside were too busy for us and we left disappointed.

Recommending because the food was excellent. The service was not rude but so inattentive it impacted our experience. Long periods of absence, despite the venue not being busy, limited alcohol consumption and we were not offered dessert. Appetizers were missing, and one of our guests was brought and an inedible pasta in plain olive oil instead of the spicy pistachio pasta dish ordered. Eventually corrected but after everyone else had completed the meal. I ordered herbal chamomile tea and was brought caffeinated English breakfast tea which kept me up all night. Despite writing a note on the back of our receipt, and to the restaurant, no response has been received. Based on this experience I’m not sure I would go back. On the plus side, the ambience is nice and the food, other than the plain pasta, was superior.

Great location for pre-concert dinner. Pasta was not great - overly al dente rigatoni bolognese with very little bolognese. I'd try the restaurant again though.

I would recommend Bar Amis to a friend, with conditions.
The atmosphere is fun yet makes for a calmer pre-sports venue than Xfinity live. We went there prior to a show at the Wells Fargo Center and it was a great location. However, the food was just okay. My burger was way overcooked and the salads came out at the same time as the main course. Probably more of a casual, there for the drinks not dinner, kind of spot. That said, the service was great, the location is convenient and there is a great outdoor seating area that is probably a lot of fun in warmer weather.

This was a Pre-NBA basketball game dinner. My friend bought the tickets, and I bought the dinner. The craft beers were very good, the ambience was lively but not too loud, and the food was quite good. I had a salad and sandwich, my friend a gourmet burger. With drinks and appetizers and entrees the cost was just under $100. The place is very convenient to the sports complex as well. Parking lot was too small, that's about the only real complaint along with only average service. Since we weren't in a hurry it was not a problem.

A bit sub-par on this recent visit...

The place was super busy and the wait staff were hustling. Still only 3 of the ordered 4 starters came. The beer was extra cloudy. The bacon on the cheese burger was either overdone or underdone. The medium burger itself was well done (this place normally does excellent burgers). The cauliflower was overdone and lacked enough glaze. The sprouts resembled just a few leaves vs any actual meaty sprouts. Oh and the salmon was also overdone.

As a team celebratory lunch it was a bit of a disappointment. I got a $60 meal for $180 :-(

We were early and seeking to start the festivities a few hours before the stadium classic last weekend.. Good casual scene wig above average service and food and rink.
Shared some apps - real yummy. (Wasn’t picking up on and Vetri overlap or vibe it’s subtle I guess) - in all , we enjoyed!

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.

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.
