The food, the service, and the ambiance were all spectacular! I am still thinking about the bacon wrapped plantains. They were delicious.
Myra was an awesome server! Service was great, food was great. Thank you for a great brunch!
The food was delicious, especially the piononos - mmmm. Our waiter Andres was wonderful.
Very nice discovery. The grilled octopus was as good as any we ever had.
Some of the best flavored dishes I have ever eaten.
Really tough to say what was better: the food, the drinks, or the staff. Incredible restaurant with incredible people.
The food was great, specifically the tuna watermelon ceviche. The service was amazing. I will definitely go back to try the other dishes they offer.
Great quality food, drinks, music, ambiance, and service.
Very good food, priced decently as well. Our server was great.
The food was delicious, server was attentive, meal was paced well. Only complaint was the seating was makeshift for covid and was uncomfortable after 1.5 hrs.
We will be back though!
Great salads. The meats were nicely prepared. Waitstaff was friendly and well informed.
This restaurant was great. The music, the ambiance; it reminded me of Brooklyn, NYC. The old school hip hop music, the Latin fusion of the food was a reflection of my travels abroad and my first date nights with the hubby back in the 90s. The waitress was professional and accommodating.
Amazing service and food! Would 10/10 recommend - an awesome dining experience
Excellent vibe. Amazing drinks and the food was out of this world. Highly recommend.
Easily the most underrated spot in Bucktown. It’s our hidden gem that’s getting more well known for a reason: consistently great food with great flavor, cocktails that knock your socks off, and personable staff.
Amazing food, every dish we had was 10/10. Incredible ceviche, matcha cocktail was delicious, steak and 2 day marinated chicken out of this world. Not too loud. Loved everything, definitely coming back.
Amaru is easily one of my new favorite restaurants in Chicago. The food is so decently priced for how elevated and delicious it is. That paired with a great environment and incredible service makes for a place I will return to again & again! Can't recommend Amaru enough.
Excellent food, drinks, service, etc
Incredible food and service, this place is so unrated. Every plate was Delicious.
From the music to food...I loved everything
Great selection of unique preparations and fantastic flavors
The service was cheerful, helpful and inobtrusive. And the food! The Cuban Oxtail was rich without being heavy, and the seasoning was delicious. I'm glad I saved room for dessert; the Coconut Tres Leches was a transcendent combination of flavors and texturesI'm looking forward to a return visit soon.
Food is phenomenal ! Service great! Environment is stark and feels like a bar but do not let that deter you! This is a wicker park hidden gem!
Food tends to be in salty side...but good flavors
Excellent food, larger than expected portions
I definitely will come to this place. The food was delicious, the drinks were delicious, the server was very friendly and very helpful. I give this place 5 stars for becoming the spot #1 for me
Excellent comfort food and great service.
Best restaurant I’ve been to in a long time! Service was great, cocktails were top shelf, and the food was phenomenal. Definitely coming back soon.
Excellent service and delicious one of a kind food!
Fantastic food and service
The food was great as always. The server and hostess were fabulous and all Covid precautions were in place. Highly recommend a fun dinner here.
Myself and two friends came here to celebrate a birthday. Great, attentive service. The food was phenomenal. Personally, I had the gnocchi; very flavorful. The hard to impress birthday boy definitely loved the atmosphere, food, drinks and gave it high marks overall. I'm looking forward to coming back!
One of our first "fully vaccinated" dinners with friends. Interesting, distinct dishes and a really nice touch with the cocktails. For us they cooked a couple of whole fish and a huge dry-aged Slagel steak for 2; all were very tasty. Friendly family-feeling service. We'll be back.
We've gone here plenty of times and Amaru never disappoints. We brought a friend here for this dinner and he already called this place one of his favorite places to eat. The food and the cocktails taste great! The staff are also very friendly and make you feel welcomed. Love coming back here again and again :)
All the dishes were shareable, the food was great, drinks excellent and service outstanding. Particular favorites were were the bacon plantains, seafood empanadas, octopus and branzino.
Unbelievable a hidden gem!
Amazing food, great service, intimate settings. Great place overall.
The food here is delicious! I highly recommend the bacon wrapped plantains, the charred octopus and the skirt steak. Great, intimate ambiance with dividers set up between tables to maintain social distancing. The drinks were good and strong too. The bar was really pretty with the green tiles/chairs. I'm looking forward to returning!
The food just keeps getting better and better.
Food was absolutely delicious. Our favorite was the coconut rice, avocado & endive salad, & chicken al carbon. Will definitely be back. Great service as well.
