Good Bar Menu

This pretty room has a lot of potential but really misses the mark as a restaurant. There was no wait staff just the hostess serving whatever came out of the kitchen. The menu sounded much better than how the dishes were executed. I am glad I did not try anything too ambitious from the kitchen. The place needs some professional... More

The food was decent, but nothing to write home about. We enjoyed our breakfasts and a dinner there while staying in the hotel. A bit overpriced for what it was.

This was the main restaurant in Le Meridien Hotel in Philly. The waiters and waitresses were all very personable. I loved that this hotel had so many healthy food choices...organics, fresh veggies, grains like couscous etc. We ate breakfast and a dinner here and felt pampered! The decor of the restaurant is cheerful and bright and the staff is very... More

Four of us had Sunday lunch here. Three of us ordered the Caesar salad with chicken and one, the kale salad with chicken followed by their ice creams and sorbets. Food was fine, but nothing special. Service a tad slow.

Amuse is not stuffy and the food is actually good. The wait staff is also courtesy, attentive and perceptive. It is not a long menu, but the items served are of high quality IMHO.

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.
