I chose this restaurant for my birthday with the family. When we arrived, we were a little taken aback because the seating is pretty much in the lobby of the hotel Meridien, with no designation or sign leading to the restaurant. There was, however, a cozy fireplace which looked and felt welcoming. The server was condescending and flip, but the... More

I have stayed at the hotel once, and this is how I found this place about a year ago. Today I was I Philadelphia again and had to get the Lobster bouillabaisse, and it was great. Surprising few people, so the waiters are very attentive. A bit pricy, but so are many similar restaurants. I will be back

I had a business breakfast here. The service was great. The food choices were good, too. Everything from eggs to french toast to omelettes. We were going to make it easy on the server and have him split the check evenly 6 ways. Instead, he wanted to split by person, so I thought that was nice of him to do... More

The food was mediocre at best and the service was subpar so if you are in this area find another place to eat! The skate that I ordered had a funky taste to it so they replaced it with a cheap peace of flank steak which was no better but at least edible. Deserts had so much sugar that you... More

During Restaurant Week in Philly, the participating restaurants usually provide a simpler menu with smaller portions. Often those portions are so small that I call them "a tasting menu," because I leave the restaurant feeling hungry and somewhat cheated. This was NOT the case at Amuse, where four of us had dinner during this month's Restaurant Week. My husband and... More

Breakfast is a little pricy, but compared to the quality in the surrounding restaurants and coffee bars a lot better!!

Ate lunch there and food and service were both good. Ambience is lacking but menu at both the bar and the restaurant were interesting and the appetizers were good. Would recommend the restaurant as good if one desires to eat at the hotel while staying there....This is a convenience location rather than a destination restaurant.

The last time I saw a mouse in a hotel was at the Pulitzer in Amsterdam about ten years ago. Tonight I was sitting at the lobby bar and a mouse runs throughout the lobby! I was thinking that I would not be hard on this hotel. But this incident pushed me over the edge. The bartender didn't even seem... More

Great service, lovely ambience, and fantastic halibut. What more could I ask for? Friends had steaks and said they were outstanding. Loved the bread too.

We had a large group in for brunch on a Sunday and this place was lovely. The room is spectacular and a fun mix of new and old. The various versions of poached eggs with salmon and eggs benedict were great. The service was efficient and attentive. Call the hotel if you need to speak to a live person about... More
