Visiting from out of town and we stopped in because it was close to our hotel. The service was exceptional, the food was very tasty and our cocktails were great as well. I asked the server for a recommendation on a dinner option and she suggested the pasta dish. It was an excellent recommendation, it tasted fantastic. We sat outside and watched the sun set among the Naval Ships and were able to relax. I will be visiting Philly again, and will definitely make a stop at Bar Amis!

Everything was wonderful from start to finish! Our waiter Deney was great! Very attentive and not over bearing. He was quick and friendly and the food was great. A nice pre concert date spot. The cacio e Pepe and chamomile whiskey sour are a must have!

Went here on date night before a concert at Wells Fargo Center. We were rushed for time and the staff was very accommodating to get our order placed right away. The food came out quickly and was cooked perfectly. We were seated in a large room upstairs which was a little noisy, but it didn’t bother us on this occasion. It wouldn’t be ideal if you’re looking for a more private dining experience. Great for a casual dining experience.

Great local Navy Yard area hang out but not just for happy hour. Dinner selections are as equally amazing as their happy hour offerings. Great outdoor patio for al fresco dining. Perfect for a date night or simply chilling out after work. Love this place!

Have visited a few times so I think I owed a review.
Have been treated very nicely each time...fun staff.. from the every happy front hostess...throughout
the entire wait staff. Bartender, Anwar can make anything you like and do it with flair. He even gets your drinks just right when you tell him how your like it.. Good wait staff, even on busy concert nights.
The ever moving, energetic Mgr Marina is everywhere.. but with hawk eyes watching everything that's going on. I know restaurants, and this team is pretty good..hope they can keep em.
Oh..and food...did I mention that its a Vetri kitchen staff and food....'nuff said' ..
Try it...

This was my first time in Philly, meeting with a client. This reservation was for a client dinner and everything was perfect. The staff was on top of things and friendly, with a large party they did a great job of always ensure to ask and check on the guests. I really enjoyed the food as well, I will definitely be back :)

Excellent food quality and presentation. Large portions well presented. Short menu but it is clear focus is on quality and there are enough choices and variety for everyone. Good vegan options. Recommend the beet tacos and the Salmon

My wife and I enjoyed a date night here and thought the food was very delicious and that the atmosphere was comfortable and casual. They had my favorite beer which has tended to be a good indicator of whether a place I've never been too is likely to serve Italian that my wife or I will enjoy. It proved accurate this time as well ;).

Although when I saw the mozzarella chunks on my chicken parm, that the meal might be going downhill, but I actually now prefer it that way after having tried the way Bar Amis prepares it- delicious! My wife enjoyed her meal also.

Its not too pricey, and my only critique is that the portions walk a fine line between enough and not enough.

We will be back for sure- thanks for the good meal.

I had the bolognese and it was DELICIOUS! I brought my friends for an early dinner before walking over to Wells Fargo Center and it was such a nice change to eat good food instead of only having stadium food. I would definitely recommend people to hop over there before going to an event at any of the stadiums.

The Buffalo Cauliflower appetizer was very very good. The salmon was slightly over cooked and the chicken parm was over baked, while the sauce was very good.

Great experience! Very attentive wait staff. Fast service, excellent value. The only minor negative comment is the chicken parm was a touch over. But everything else is divine. I LOVED the grilled avocado. Overall wonderful time. We will be back.

Food was outstanding. Best brussel sprouts ever had. Even my friend who never eats healthy loved them. Buffalo cauliflower was super tasty too. Setting seemed magical. Vegan and gluten free options too.

We dined for lunch with a group of six and shared apps, pastas, and a couple steaks. Food was outstanding and service was comfortable and attentive. The calamari stood out to me - melt in the mouth tender - and the steaks were grilled to a perfect medium rare. We look forward to coming back!

Service was good, everyone was friendly. Menu seemed promising but the food was just ok. My wife did not enjoy the turkey panini or the beet salad. The chicken parm wasn't bad. Wife's drink was WAY overpriced.
Perhaps the happy hour specials are the way to go at Bar Amis.
