Spendy Breakfast Dining but good portions, tasty

I ate here for breakfast twice, and both times I had really good food. It was pricey, no question. However you got large portion sizes, everything seemed fresh, and the service was attentive.

I ate breakfast here twice and was very pleased both times. Their American breakfast, oatmeal, steak and eggs and bacon were phenomenal. Service was top notch. I wish I would have eaten other meals here.

I have been to this restaurant on many occasions including New Year's Eve. Beautiful contemporary and warm decor. Very upscale but reasonably priced. Limited menu but the food is always excellent.

I first went there with family because we had a coupon, a great deal that got us 4 drinks, 2 apps and 4 entrees. The drinks were amazing and so were the apps. For dinner the lobster bouillabaisse was extremely tasty so much that we were drinking the broth. I unfortunately got the ribeye, which was pretty much inedible. I... More

Walked in and out of the "restaurant" without realizing that I was in one. Amuse has an awesome hotel-lobby bar, but the restaurant space is so insignificant that I thought it was just a few extra seats for the bar.

While staying at the Le Meridien I decided to have a drink at the Amuse Bar. The bar tender, Ashley, was quick to service and very knowledgeable on the drinks and snacks offered at the bar. She really made my stay a pleasure. The only downside to this bar is the location. It is located directly inside the hotel. During... More

Since I was in Philly to attend the Flower Show, a long time friend, made a dinner reservation at Amuse as she wanted to try their steak frites. I was put off my the very limited menu, but decided on the lobster bouillabaisse. Food was good, not anything special. Frankly, this a big disappointment. Knowing the prices, I would have... More

We dined at this restaurant celebrating our anniversary the other night with friends. The food was excellent. I had the lamb shanks, and although I am an excellent cook, these were far better than what I prepare at home. Other than the fact that the restaurant itself is located off the lobby of the hotel and the ambiance in my... More

The title says it all. The "free" amuse-bouche offered at the beginning of the meal was delicious, as was my main meal. But there weren't many inspired choices on the menu to choose from. Ambiance was lovely with a gorgeous view of Philadelphia from the window and a cozy gas fire.
