AMP 150 Ratings and Reviews
Amp150 has been a favorite, it was a hidden gem. Last night it totally missed. Something changed and the food was just average. Everything needed salt and a bit of acid. It was like they were at home trying to recreate what Amp used to be. I believe the chef changed and it shows.
Check out the framed reviews as you enter this restaurant, located in a hotel lobby. The food described there, creative and using local ingredients, is not what they are serving any longer. That chef left, and so did his successor. Now there is an assortment of highly overpriced and poorly seasoned dishes. There is an Ohio sirloin for $26; at that price, I'd expect rib steak. I ordered fried Brussels sprouts with caramelized onions; why did that dish need honey. I also ordered baked gnocchi "Mac," which consisted of ricotta and cream cheese, doused with MAPLE SYRUP?? There was supposed to be chorizo in there; i didn't notice any. A guest ordered a caprese flat bread. It was $15 for bread, a little pesto, and cheese. The servers were friendly and helpful. There were four TVs in the bar playing a loud football game throughout our dinner. Not going back.
They had a special Christmas dinner plat for $32 dollars which was prime rib. Two of my guests got that and it was about a quarter fat. One was more so they did comp us for 19 dollars off the bill. The other meals were just OK. The full 32 dollar meals included a salad, the dinner and desert, the desert was very small scoop of ice cream with sauce. So overall not a good price for what we got and food was just OK. I expected a lot more. I had heard better things about this place. Maybe the B or C team was working on Christmas Day although when we were there it was maybe about 30% full.
This was our first time and we cannot believe we waited so long to try it! Pleasantly surprised by everything from the cool, Vegas like ambiance to the interesting and wonderful 'surprise' dinner! We loved it all and can't wait to go back. By the way, the service was impeccable by all especially our server Stephanie who may not be able to ever get rid of us, she's the best!
The restaurant itself and its staff are very good. The downside for me is it is part of a hotel. I travel out of town for work most weeks so I naturally eat in many hotel restaurants. I wanted a date with my wife not a reminder that I'm never home. Most people probably wouldn't care. It is a tidbit I like to know though. If you are staying there for work absolutely eat there. If you want to take the spouse out to dinner and the hotel aspect doesn't bother you then absolutely give it a shot as well. Happy dining. :)
We attended the Harvest Dinner event. There was a group of about 40 ppl, mainly foodies. It was very inexpensive at $45, with about 10 different items served progressively family style. There was way more food than we could eat, and a nice mix of veg and meat dishes, and two desserts. Also included were pairings with wine and cocktails---two of each!
The food was really great and we met some very nice people around the table. Most of the food was locally grown, some right outside in the restaurants garden. I highly recommend these dinners! The restaurant is inside the Marriot Hotel, but it's a fun atmosphere and many of the guests are locals that have heard thru word of mouth about this neighborhood gem. Nice bar too, with lots of local craft beers and specialty cocktails. Very good HH!
We are only in the Cleveland area for about three months of the year and always make a point of dining at AMP 150 at least one time each summer. The wait staff is always helpful and accommodating; the menu has a great variety of options; and, the food is exceptional. We always look forward to dining here.
I like what they are doing with the garden to table concept. The food was good and fresh. We were having lunch with a vintner from Napa and she had a question about an Ohio wine that was on the wine list. The waiter did not know and said he would ask the bartender. She was doing something else and took some time to come to our table. The food was great but the service has a lot to be desired. I don't know what ever happened to our waiter and I had to go the the bar to ask for my bill.
Good food, would be great but the sides left more to be desired. Had the 6 course chefs tasting and all of the meats presented, from the crab cake to the braised lamb, were amazing. Loud and very open. Not really intimate because it's in the lobby of the hotel. Nice decor. Good for date night or girls night out. Pretty good drinks from the bar as well.
Used to visit often for the eclectic menu and specialization in local ingredients. However this was the first time in about a year and the menu is much less interesting now. Probably needed to change because the main clientele is Marriott Hotel guests who want more traditional fare. No longer any real reason to make a special visit based on this meal.
For a Special Occasion AMP 150 can't be beat. They've scaled-down their menu a bit, but the selections are still numerous enough to satisfy most ANY request. ALWAYS a good time, great service and fantastic food. The Mussels are to die for. Sonya is the best!
I ordered the swordfish. It was AMAZING. I was a little disappointed they were limited on their sides options, so I had french fries as my side. Classy, I know. But over all, it was a good place and I would recommend it. Though, I didn't realize it was inside a hotel.
We went as a family of 5 to AMP150 for a birthday. I'll get right down to it. The food everyone had was very good with no complaints. We tried the Hand cut fries appetizer and they were brought out hot and fresh and served with a great Aioli; enough for all of us to share. For our main course we enjoyed the Pan Seared Scallops, the Pork Schnitzel, the Steak Diane, and the 24 hr. beef short rib. The portions were perfect and the entire meal was hot and flavorful. No shortcuts were taken. Our server, Stephanie, mentioned in many AMP reviews was extremely helpful and attentive from when we were seated by the hostess. She even gave us a brief history of the restaurant. We will definitely come again and would recommend this restaurant to anyone who will listen. Anyone who is complaining about the restaurant being in the lobby of a hotel are just people who will never be satisfied and always look for something to whine about. Ignore them and you won't regret your decision to eat here!
We had a lovely dinner at Amp 150 on Saturday evening. The menu was an interesting one and the food was well prepared. Our server was friendly and helpful. The surroundings are very pleasant. I don't necessarily expect quality from a hotel restaurant, but Amp 150 definitely was. We were a little surprised that it wasn't more crowded--people are missing a good bet.
What a wonderful place! Fit for foodies, the menu is both approachable and unique, with enough offerings for all different tastes. We were seated a little late for the reservation, but the staff overwhelmed us with great service, and recognition that our requested table wasn't ready when we arrived. Everything was perfect from that point forward. Highly recommend! Don't let the fact that this is a "hotel restaurant" hold you back. It's a wonderful dining experience.
We dined at Amp 150 for Valentine's Day! We previously had our wedding reception. at the hotel in August. We were just as pleased with our food at dinner as we were at the reception! Our food came out warm and delicious. I had the ricotta gnocchi and my husband had the shrimp scampi. We were impressed. Our waitress was helpful, kind, and patient with us. She recommended great items. We truly enjoyed our dinner and will be back again very soon! Thanks for the five star dinner and dining experience!
While the food was good, the fact that its open to the hotel lobby destroys any sense of ambiance. You see people going to the pool and kids yelling at the pool table. Was not a good choice for Valentines day. Nothing the restaurant can really do about it but it really just seems like an expensive hotel restaurant without the space to back it up.
The food was good, service was fine, I did not realize it was in the hotel lobby I assumed there would be some privacy. Our table was next to the bathrooms- which was less than romatic. This is not a place I would recommend a couple going to for a "night out". I had heard it was nice there and food was good but the setting was awful, it was just a hotel lobby, loud, crowded and busy....was not pleased.
We have dined here twice and enjoyed it each time. The menu has interesting items and the beer and wine selection is very diverse. Our group felt the entrees were delicious and the portions were good, as was the server. The lobby of the Marriott made it feel airy, but the booths allow for intimate dining.
We went there with the intention of having their 4 course tasting for $35/pp. They are a farm to table kitchen, and the chef makes whatever he wants for each course. The sweet potato gnocchi was absolutely magnifique, followed by a very tart and refreshing zucchini salad, then a main course of shrimp and pasta in a light creamy sauce. We had no room for desert, a decadent chocolate lava cake, though we ate some of it anyway... All in all the experience was fantastic. The food, absolutely divine. Our waitress, Stephanie, was extremely attentive and friendly, she deserves 12 gold stars. She brought new silverware for almost every course and made sure our wine glasses were never empty. The only thing that "seems" off-putting is the room. It is an open room that looks directly at the check-in/lobby at the Marriott (Amp 150 is in the hotel). But the lighting (at night) is fantastic in the lobby and the restaurant, warm tones that resemble candle light or soft Christmas tree lights. I was "weirded" out when I first walked in, but it only took a pop of a wine bottle and looking at the menu for me to settle in to the atmosphere. For the kind of meal you get at Amp 150, it is very reasonably priced. We will definitely be going back, and bringing friends.
My wife and I had an impromptu dinner at AMP on a Friday night. It was moderately busy. I guess they are busier during the week with business travelers.
We had a very leisurely dinner with attentive but not too attentive service. When we inquired about the new bourbon flights, the bartender came over and explained each and made a great recommendation that we enjoyed.
The food was excellent. My wife really enjoyed the bouillabaisse. Excited to return!
