We credit our success to a very honest approach to Mediterranean cuisine: a fusion of original Italian food and French food, great hospitality and the highest quality of ingredients that we use in our recipes. A large portion of specialty items that we serve are imported from Italy and France.
Our famous Focaccia Robiola, our super fresh and tasty Seafood, creative Pasta and perfectly al dente Risotto, have attracted a dedicated fan base of New Yorkers, Europeans and celebrities, who are looking for a home away from home.
Our Mediterranean Bistro has a really charming terrace during the warm season, where you can taste our delicious food or enjoy a cocktail (try our famous Frozen Cosmo!) before dinner.

our meal was really delicous Mussels & Lobster Salad
Entire dinner was great
Had an excellent time at Amaranth last night. The food was delicious, the ambiance very lively. Only thing that might need work on is maybe more staff, but it is understandable given the times we are in post covid. Will definitely be returning.
Very good except for the birthday singing with loud music disrupted the ambiance
A very nice place to have lunch-we both had salads, but they have a large and varied menu.
The restaurant was very quiet at 12:30 ,but an hour later became more crowded and a little noisy.
There are lots of options for outdoor dining, if weather permits..
the service was very fast and attentive ...
Very slow service outside, possibly due to large number of diners.
I ordered the gazpacho soup to start and the steak tartare as a main course. The gazpacho had good flavor but was very watery. The steak tartare was prepared to my spice preference, which I appreciated. However, it was room temperature at best, almost warm. No bueno.
My partner had the halibut and it was ok. The meal was pricy and not good value. We were disappointed and will not be back.
It would be nice for the kitchen to split the salad instead of us waiting for another plate to be brought 10 minutes later. I love Amaranth because it is located 3 blacks from me and i hope that I can be better treated in the future. Thank you
Splendid - was great
Excellent fish. I had the Halibut and my friend had the Branzino. Both were amazing and fresh. Great atmosphere for dinner. Expansive outdoor area.
Food was delicious… Service was awful! Had to ask for a menu, had to find a staff member to order a 2nd drink, had to flag down someone to bring our check. Everything service related was a struggle and it made for a very unpleasant dining experience! Have had such nice experiences at the restaurant before but tonight was just awful!
Fun - Vibrant - Happy place. Get place to celebrate a Birthday.
Great food coupled with great service. Well-spaced seating, too.
We had a wonderful evening here. Outdoor table on a beautiful night. The food was superb, as always. Wait staff was very attentive.
Wonderful evening as always!!
An overpriced and poorly made chicken salad. The chicken was so dry and you will think that for 35 dlls you will get something decent. It was awful and I am never coming back.
Excellent food and service, little overpriced on some items.
I like the place a lot One of my favorites in NY
Both my friend & I only ordered salads due to a time crunch.
I look forward to returning when I can enjoy a full meal and then
have a better idea of their cuisine. Lovely restaurant, very nice
staff & ambience. Also look forward to outdoor dining. As
with all restaurants in this area, pricey but expected as such.
Very good food excellent, very NYC
Love this restaurant. Wonderful menu, kind and speedy service, and general ambience good.
Recommend with confidence- although pricey.
The only problem was that they did not have my Open Table reservation. Luckily they had a spare table.
Will never go back. I live in the neighborhood and have dined here several times. The table we requested and confirmed an hour before we arrived was newly occupied by another reservation. They brought out another one so it worked out. The service was bad. Only one waiter servicing half of the outside tables, ie about 12-15 tables. We were constantly having to flag him down which was not relaxing. Then, it then started to pour and my friend went inside to pay the check. While she waited, the waiters were busy moving tables inside and were unsympathetically bumping into her with the tables and chairs. No one seemed to care. The crowd is pretentious. Twice i was interrupted by two self-centered women who were separately were trying to check themselves in. A guy standing next to me was shocked that neither were part of
My group. It was so rude. The food was good but it is too chaotic to go back again.
A delicious meal from start to finish! We kept it to a light lunch, but all very tasty and great service.
Second time I've eaten there in two weeks and the food was excellent again. I had the steak tartare and it was perfect. My friend had some salmon and she enjoyed it as well. Service was good. Highly recommend!
The food is always terrific at this restaurant, and I like the ambiance as well. The maitre d' is always welcoming and gives me a good table always. I like the people who eat here as well. It is also in a great location for just about anything you would be doig in the Big Apple. I return to this restaurant whenever I have a guest or two.
Limited menu from normal.
Tomatoes were not very good. Branzino. Was fab.
Wonderful restaurant! Excellent food, service, ambience. And one of the best places in NYC to celebrate a birthday.
Frazzled service. Not enough servers. Very slow
Bad food, bad service and not enough outdoor heaters.
Love it excellent food and service a wonderful place!
As always, Amaranth was amazing. We celebrated my son’s birthday.
Birthday—wonderful place that did an amazing job!
My lobster ravioli was excellent and my friend liked her omelet. Atmosphere was pleasant and service was good and not overbearing. I live close by and am happy to have this restaurant in my neighborhood.
Food was great! Nice outside seating! Wonderful service!
Amaranth has very good food and service. The staff is congenial and capable. The wine list is outstanding, with an excellent selection of both French and Italian Reds, an unusually wide selection of half-bottles and very fair pricing. The ambience is pleasant.
