Amaranth is a favorite restaurant of ours. Great food, great atmosphere, great location, nice but older crowd. Dover sole, Salmon, Halibut all excellent. Salad with avocado and artichoke is delicious. tuna tArtare is wonderful.
New Years eve was a special treat. They didn't hit you up with ridiculous prix fixe menus like so many other restaurants do. Nicely decorated. DJ played wonderful music, age appropriate. A fun time was had by all.

Thank JAR55

A very bustling little restaurant this is! Excellent service and great ambiance. Waiter brought our water, wine and appetizer right away. Focaccio pizza, I highly recommend this as a starter for the table to split - Delicious! Wonderful fish entres! The salmon and sea scallops are cooked perfectly and decoratively served with lightly seasoned vegis. Looking around this fine establishment one cannot help to notice all the women in this place. This place was packed yet I was the one of the only woman sitting with 2 handsome men ( my husband and his colleague) It must be the preferred place for girls day out. Ladies if you are going with a friend make sure you dress the part or be prepared for the femme fatal stink eye!

We were walking up Madison and stumbled on this little gem. It had just opened for lunch and we thought "why not?"

The service was great, the food was nice and it had a great neighborhood vibe.

But please note: their specialty focaccia is absolutely amazing.

I saw a very negative review here. Please disregard it. Amaranth is worth visiting if you are looking for a brief respite from walking, shopping, and gallery viewing.

Loved the Eggplant app! Great wines, great pasta. Pricey, but that's because of location. Great service, great atmosphere, but small.
