Nice place right by the water with a nice view. Great place for date night.
Food was fresh and delicious! I had the Arroz Verde with snapper filet. It was the perfect rice bowl served with fresh vegetables. The yuca cheese puffs are a nice starter
Had a great time and the service was great and the view was amazing
All of the above
Services super slow, made a reservation inside and they put us outside, we had to order the water 3 times. The food was ok but for the prices it’s way too much.
The sausage came under cook when the server came he didn’t ask if we liked it or no even if the food was still in the plate. For the desert make sure to like cream cheese if you pick the coconut cake cause that’s all it is about !
Everything was great ! Great customer service , great food !
Beautiful outdoor setting by the water. Menu is varied and appealing, food is good (not exceptional). Pricey, and often a wait.
The food was good, we didn’t like the chorizo, I expected more from the comments.
I definitely didn’t like that they sat us in the second floor, the first floor is much nicer.
I might come back! 3 stars
Love this place! The outdoor sitting is so beautiful and food is very good We had a wonderful time
It was a great experience service is amazing and the area is beautiful scenery.
The food was nothing short of amazing, if you’re a seafood lover this place is for you! The octopus was the best I’ve ever had
Amazing atmosphere, decent food.
The place is beautiful, but service was terrible. We had to call on a waiter after 10 minutes of being seated to get at least water and menus. We finally got our waiter to provide menus and take our order. There was just lack of attention. We had to ask for napkins, plates to share our food, request to take plates off the table, on and on... I was dissapointed.
They took forever to bring us water and get our order. Then they took forever to bring us our food. We were told we only had two hours to eat. Mind you I told the waiter that if they had a two hour limit to eat, then the service should be quicker and not penalize the customer. We were then told that we could finish the dessert on the second floor terrace. We went for brunch. We really didn't expect this from this restaurant, as their food is not cheap!
Amazing place. Would definitely recommend. Great food. Great service.
We will be going back for brunch. The view of the ocean is great. We did enjoy our food...especially the 7 layer coconut cake.
Absolutely great! Service, food, and views were awesome. Highly recommend!
Great place !
Service was very good however food was bland and not very memorable, especially that sweet potato. Mask less children running around and their mask less table of six got up and walked though restaurant when leaving was very unnerving in age of Covid.
Beautiful place!! Beautiful View!! From the start to end AMAZING!
I have been to Amara numerous times, the last few times I have felt the same way. Service is horrible, you don't know who your waiter is and you wait and wait to get someone to take your order. The prices, after COVID has increased, which would be more acceptable if the service and the food was outstanding. In my book, the food is good but not great, which does not tie with the prices...the only things spectacular is the view.
the staff was so friendly! excellent service, and we had a wonderful time. the view was also amazing.
Service was overall poor. Had to flag down my waiter at least 3 times. Some of my food came out cold and had to be sent back. Overall it was nice, just think it was a bad night. Will probably go back for just cocktails.
Great views and ambiance; sat upstairs and they have wine specials on Wednesday to sit in that area where you can purchase wine from their wine shelves at pay a much lower corkage fee of $10.
Amazing experience! Stephanie was exceptionally attentive!
They didnt have few things in the menu
And food wasnt that good!
Atmosphere, drinks amazing
Absolutely delicious and vibe-y! Can’t forget the incredible views and superb service. Cant say enough about this spot. Always on point!
The food and cocktails were excellent. The level of service, impeccable. Will definitely go back soon.
Tables were spaced appropriately and all staff were masked. I felt very comfortable. Food was great and so were the views.
Flavors mix in your mouth, the menu is creative and the food is delicious.
Reservation not honored as reserved
Then moved back inside due to rain to a vey uncomfortable high top corner inside table
Took over an hour to just get drinks after we originally sat down and ordered
Absolutely no attention or apologies from management
Not the servers fault as they were very good but a total and absolute management breakdown.
I have had many great meals at Amara in the past but this experience was very disappointing.
Had the seafood platter - chilled shrimp and ceviche's were incredible. The prawns for main were fantastic. We sat outdoors by the water, really nice spot. A storm came through but waitress had us set up inside, so we finished there. Great service.
Amazing evening. Rebecca our server was so accommodating in every way. Flawless service. Thank you for making a memorable and great birthday celebration.
Excellent experience I had to new visitors and they loved the place. I will be back soon!!!
Fantastic experience from food to service! Also, can’t beat the ambiance. Beautiful view. Very romantic.
We came in from out of town & were dying to try this place. Not only was the service amazing, the food was incredible that even the picky eaters were happy. Very very content with this meal.
amazing restaurant great ambiance and remarkable view
Great ambiance, food, and drinks! Would definitely recommend!
Great view and food.
