We had a delightful and bountiful breakfast at Amuse. The small size of the restaurant gave it an intimate and inviting feeling. My veggie omelet was done perfectly, and the cartelized onion topped :ions potatoes were outstanding. Coffee was great and service was "with a smile" and excellent! An outstanding way to start the day!

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 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 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
