We went to this restaurant in September 2014. We tried the tasting menu and wine pairing. The food was incredible with interesting combinations of flavors and textures. Every course was better than the last and the food was fresh and cooked to perfection. Don't miss this restaurant if you come to San Francisco. It is on the upscale side however... More

This restaurant is situated within the ST. REgis Hotel. Wonderful service and food. Make sure to arrive early to enjoy a cocktail in the wonderful lobby bar prior to your dinner reservation. GO!

This was our fourth visit to Ame, and each has been very good to excellent. We went a la carte, passing on the tasting menu. Our first course was the Tempura Poke, which was a unique concept to us, and the Chawan-Mushi, which is a savory custard w/ lobster, uni, shitake mushrooms and a mitsuba sauce. The first was excellent,... More

We celebrated our 19th anniversary and decided to go all out. We both ordered the tasting menu with the wine pairings. 1st course was a weird dish of cauliflower, scallops and plum in an asian-gelatin broth. It was not good at all. The individual items in the broth were good, but the flavour of the broth was off and mine... More

I highly recommend this restaurant if you visit SF! If you love japanese food and you love Uni? Then you should try their Hokkaido Scallops with Uni and Calviar. It was amazing...

On the ground floor of the St Regis, not far from the action in town, Ame seemed a popular spot for hotel guests and outsiders. As a first date venue, it sure worked its magic. The fusion cuisine with a focus on seafood would have been the drawcard for many, and it did not disappoint. It certainly did not go... More

We went for a business dinner, all was good and the dinning room was not so noisy you could not talk. I started off with a tuna egg noodle thing which was pretty forgettable. Mains was baked cod in broth which was OK. All in all it was OK. I think this is the first time I have eaten in... More
