We had 2 dining experiences and the food and service was just delightful. The menu was well done with special twists and I would highly recommmend. Atmosphere was ok but food & servers took to it to another level

Went to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts to see some wonderful art. Happened to see the hotel Le Meridian and low and behold Amuse Restaurant. Had the Cobb Salad. Presentation was amazing, tasted great. It was deconstructed. The staff were so knowledgeable and friendly.

We stayed at le meridian before leaving for vacation to start the vacation early. I bought a travelzoo voucher for dinner at amuse on a whim. Boy am I glad I did. We had the most amazing dinner. Our Asian server ( I forget his name) was wonderful and full of suggestions that got us more for our money with... More

We were lured to a visit Amuse with a Groupon deal. 2 drinks, 1 app and 2 entrees. Turned out to a full drink list but was carefully explained that it included all the drinks but only a small 6 oz pour of wine... however all other drinks on the menu were included. A well made Knob Creek Manhattan for... More

Onion soup and steak frittes were warm, my salad and main dish were not memorable. The creme brulee was delicious. The room is lovely,... More

My hubby had the lobster bisque. It was VERY, VERY rich. We each had the hangar steak with fries. The steak was superb. The fries were greasy. They brought us a side of baby brussel sprouts that we did not order & they charged us for them. We both ordered dessert. They brought my husband his, but, completely forgot about... More

Because we were a group, we had a limited menu from which to make a selection. I opted for a pistou-like soup which was okay and salad which was okay but nothing special. I would have thought this would have been more of a show-stopper. The lobby and building features are worth checking out and the bar looked like it... More

Illy coffee, good service, nice selection of breakfast food. I had french toast for $14, and the American breakfast that included juice and coffee was $17. No buffet, just menu items.
