I brought my friend to celebrate becoming a nurse. Our waitress Brenda had someone stick a sparkler her in her dessert and they’d written Congrats on the plate. It really made her day. ❤️

Great food and atmosphere. I brought my friend to this restaurant the other night (she is from New Delhi, India) and has never been before. She loved it! :) We will be returning for dinner another night very soon.

The Greek salad and Shrimp Caprese were perfect; delicious!
The Margueritta Pizza didn’t have as much fresh flavour as we were expecting. The crust was perfect, though.
We were really looking forward to the cherry cheesecake, having had it here before and knowing how good the desserts have always been. Something changed, though. We were disappointed that the cheesecake and cherry topping didn’t have as much flavour as we were expecting. The cheesecake needed more tang and the topping tasted more like sugary goo than cherries.

Overall we were very pleased with our meal, but won’t recommend the desserts if all the cheesecakes taste like this now.

Wine list on internet indicates $20.00 wine bottles not made available to us.
Beer prices expensive.
Salad room temperature small portion.
One small piece of bread provided with salad before entree.
Main course very good.

The side salad tasted overly like vinegar for a Caesar. The pasta and steak was cooked to perfection and tasted amazing!

As always the food was great. With Covid restrictions we were only able to eat outside. Because it was a birthday I didn't cancel, and the weather made it cool for eating. I found the server to not be what the usual level of service I have come to know and expect. She reached over and through us while we were talking. And I guess I thought that since they asked if it was a special occasion and I answered yes, it was a birthday, they could have offered up a complementary coffee or small desert. We didn't go there for that purpose, but then don't ask. Yes, I would recommend Cafe Amore.
