We rang at 5pm to see if we could move our booking just 15min later bc we were going to be late for the 615pm sitting. We were told no, thsts fine we said, then she said either get here on time or cancel, we are fully booked. I managed to arrive on time and then had to wait at least 15 minutes to even get seated and another 30 mins to get a drink bc they were so unorganised. The 15 mins i tried to move really would have made zero impact whatsoever.
Already frustrated we learned that half the wine by the glass was not avail, no beer we wanted neither, and the overpriced bottles we were offered (some 3x the price!) were really not great. The menu also lacked some of the items and we felt that as it got busier the service struggled.
We had the wrong order brought to our table 3x. At one stage the server put plates on our table and when i stated these are not what we ordered, he proceeded to shuffle 3-4 more plates around on the table trying to figure out what went where. As the starters were put down finally, within 3 minutes they brought mains! We barely had a bite of our first starter and we were putting plates together, shuffling on the cramped table, 4-5 plates. It was terrible. We felt like we had to put the meals on 2 plates just to fit the food.
The food itself was ok. The lamb small but tasty, the pasta ok once we got the right one delivered. Burrata good. Bread old and hard.
Overall it was a not so great an experience. The staff could not handle the volume of guests. Plates wrong. Rushing. The ambience wonderful though and it felt ruined by a reataurant that probably on a quiet night would have been better. I just would avoid busy times. The lady server was lovely and if not for her it probably would have been 1 star.
I Would not go back though. There are sooo many better italian spots in SF, this is a pass for me :(
Extremely poor service. Would not recommend.
Pitted in the heart of San Francisco's beloved Russian Hill, Amarena stands well beyond its sweet little black cherry translation. The menu: perfect! The service: perfect! The locale: hopping with a heart that doesn't understand how to stop beating! Amidst a pandemic, this lovely has managed to extend some roots and shines like a diamond in the dust. Spell it with me: GNOCCHI And can I get an Amen? or Hallelujah?are (In the off-chance you've never made Gnocchi from scratch, you too can learn practice in patience.) Quite seriously, my downtime with my wife is precious to us both. We are cautious in how we choose to spend what little time we have together. Amarena pushed itself to the top of the list.
My boyfriend and I went to Amarena for a date night dinner - it was quite cute and romantic with the gas powered heat lamps and stringy lights. It was a little noisy due to street noise, but that's out of the restaurant's control. We ordered the calamari appetizer, with the lamb and seafood linguine for mains, ending with the chocolate hazelnut salami dessert (BEST dessert I've ever eaten at an Italian restaurant!!). Would definitely recommend others to come here and I can't wait to come back, even if just for dessert.
Tip: definitely dress warm for an evening meal, since the wind draft can still be chilly with outdoor seating in SF.
Fantastic dinner! From appetizers, pasta, entrees to dessert! Great wine list at reasonable prices too! Highly recommend!~
I'm sure it was a great place to be. We actually had to cancel our reservations last minute but based on other reviews I'm giving it a good rating
We went there for Valentine’s and their set meals were amazing
Thank all of you for the Valentine's day service. This was extraordinary to accomplish in better times, much less with outdoors and restrictions, managing the iffy weather.
The evening was superb. All of your people were perfect, and he meal was uncompromising. In San Francisco, we have the opportunity to try a lot of Northern Italian dining. The dishes at Amarena were amazing, from pastas to Osso Buco, and each of these worthy of remarking upon. Thank you, again.
Likely due to the fixed menu for Valentine’s Day, the ravioli came out cold and the waitress was not attendant enough for us to let her know. However by the time dessert came around the owner stopped by, offered his apologies and gave us an extra dessert item. We appreciate his generosity but wish our food was more equivalent to the value we spent there. Otherwise the ambiance was great.
Was a great experience, from the food to the music and staff.
Outside seating was nice. Food was average for the price
Outdoor dining on sidewalk is fabulous! Lighted trees, heat lamps provide ambiance. More seating outdoors that when it was indoor only. I hope the city will allow you to continue outdoor dining after the pandemic.
Great food. Great service. Great vibe. Would highly recommend!
We had a great night. The food and service was excellent. Unfortunately, with the outside dining, it was a cold, breezy night. Certainly not the restaurants fault, but sitting on a steep hill made it a challenge.
The food was great and the service was awesome
Food was real mediocre- desperately needed salt and any seasoning. The waiter was rude and incredibly slow (only two tables were there) and he took at least 15 minutes just to grab us salt
Great time, really good service.
Amazing experience as always! They have a great setup for outdoor dining with lots of heaters and a vibe reminiscent of being in a European city. Local favorite suitable for a range from everyday to special occasion
Great outdoor seating! Good food and wine list. Nice service and quiet environment to enjoy dinner.
We love Amarena. Consistent and great food. Friendly staff. Doing their best during the pandemic. It really feels like many of the terrific restaurants you might find in local Italian neighborhood.
Wonderful food, lovely staff, great outdoor dining experience! The eggplant app is to die for.
We had Oscar as our waiter.. He was fantastic. Great food and wonder wine suggestion. Dining outside felt so European.. Love it..
We always live coming here. The service and food are always amazing!
The food is quite good.. very nice pasta dishes.. It's difficult to eat outdoors, when it's windy and cold, but they have heaters.. The red wine list is limited..
The food was delicious but despite having a reservation we had to wait about 35 minutes to be seated. We ordered appetizers and bread and they forgot about the bread until our mains were coming out. Disappointed by the service but everything was very yummy.
Excellent service, delicious food. The outdoor tables have very good patio heaters. I had my favorite pasta dish, orecchiette with Italian sausage and broccoli rabe - perfect !
Amarena continues to be in our Top 10 of restaurants to visit in SF; we savor the opportunity every time we're in the city. A must visit, always.
Great spot! Very nice people!
Food was very slow. They blamed it on us for ordering the main after the first course.
Service was outstanding. Our server was super friendly, fun, nice. She seemed to really enjoy her job and made dining all the more enjoyable. The food was great, nothing to complain about. The outdoor seating was good. Plenty of space and heaters. Overall a great experience.
Food was excellent, friendly service but took uqite a while for food to be delivered to the table.
Lovely restaurant and great italian food! Outdoor seating is very comfortable
The best restaurant in SF ..
Very professional kind and engaging wait staff.
The chef makes it all happen
One of our favorite neighborhood, SF restaurants; I could dine here every night of the week.
Had a very nice dinner (outside) at Amarena recently. Heat lamps on both sides of our table. Regular Amarena menu and food/wine was good as always. Service was attentive and friendly. They are trying hard to meet their high bar of food and service during COVID and meet that goal quite well. (Good crowd for a Wednesday evening.) Support this iconic Russian Hill eatery!
Service was a bit slow at my most recent visit but typically they are really on top of it, we had a larger group so it might have been hard to juggle all of our orders. But that aside, they are always SO nice and they let us stay and enjoy some wine after dinner. Always a pleasant experience!
Amazing authentic italian hospitality and food!
Love what they're doin with outdoor dininig, the lights on the trees and the music combined with attentive friendly service, create a great ambiance.
