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

Way out of the way, tough to get o. Miss the old Philly Amis, a shame to see it go. Bring it back please, somewhere else. And bring back the Bucatini Jalapeno Pesto Pasta

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.

Really liked the character of the place. For lunch at Wednesday there was almost no need for a reservation if open to sit downstairs. Atmosphere was great and food delicious.

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.

My wife’s food tasted like it was reheated vs being fresh. Quality is inconsistent. The rigatoni was delicious but the cauliflower was fried but cold. Rice pudding was poor with no flavor. The waiter waitress service we found to be outstanding.

We had an early reservation and ate indoors on a beautiful Friday night, so we had the dining room almost to ourselves. The outdoor patio was hopping.

Our meals were enjoyable. I thought the menu could have offered a few more entrees. Service was great. Polite, professional & knew the menu.

Free parking!

Loved sitting outside, beautiful night viewing the archictecture and ships of the naval yard. Our server was attentive to the needs of two of our party with low vision, to configure our table for folks who need to be out of the light.
the drinks were great, I had prosecco my husband enjoyed the Italian wines.
the steak was great, per my daughter
calamari fresh
almond pesto delicious
baked pecorino with honey and nuts, favorite for me. Tuna and chicken sandwiches were great, and the clams with linguine were polished off. Fried calamari tasted fresh and a table favorite.
our three year old was able to sit for over an hour, staff was attentive to him also.
loved we were able to get a 7pm reservation on a Saturday night in Philly
yes I would recommend the menu was terrific,
my husband wanted a bit more sauce for his bolognaise, but other than that the food was top notch.
the location and food were great, not too noisy AND people were having fun too!

We are so happy we decided to try Bar Amis. The flavors of the food were outstanding, service was attentive but we weren’t rushed and loved the views from the second floor dining room. We will definitely be back.

Went here to try someplace new when it popped up as a suggestion on open table. Food was good but far from fine dining. Drinks were expensive and pushed the bill with one drink each to $85 with tip which is expensive for this type of place. Overall had a decent experience sitting outside on a nice evening but not a place to run back to.

My husband and I along with our friends had a pleasant evening at Bar Amis. We were seated on the second floor. So it was much quieter than downstairs. The food was good and we all were stuffed from our entrees. Looking forward to coming back soon.
