Very disappointing! I ate at this restaurant a few times last summer, for both lunch and dinner, after i heard there were new owners and a new chef. Although I found the server to be a bit annoying and pushy trying to make us purchase his recommended wines that we did not want, I have gone back because I loved the food. I even recommended this place to my family and friends. I have been out of the Okanagan area for a while and recently returned and decided to visit Amante a couple of weeks ago. The food was not up to par and no where near as good as it was last summer. I was very disappointed and thought to myself "there goes another restaurant down the drain". And the same irritating server was still there. I later found out from some people that the server is actually the owner and that the chef that was there last year is no longer there. It seems like they are trying to replicate what the old chef did but are failing at it. I also don't like restaurants where the owner is the staff. In my mind it means that either the owner is a control freak who doesn't trust anyone else or is too cheap to hire staff. I doubt I will be going back.
