AMP 150 Ratings and Reviews
I don't like to post negative reviews, but I was very unhappy with the experience. The price of the Easter buffet was $35 per person, which was fine when I thought the food would be at least partially homemade. In addition to the price per person, we were quite surprised by a mandatory 20% gratuity that had been added to the bill. It is not customary to add a gratuity for a party of less than 8 people (we had 4)--particularly for a BUFFET. Our server was generally attentive. The chef did walk around and ask us how we were doing. I declined to give him negative feedback as I didn't want to ruin the mood for my family or neighboring diners.
We recently attended a Sunday Brunch for $18 downtown that far surpassed the expectations I had for this one. I may try the restaurant again, but I will most certainly avoid the holiday brunch in the future.
Delicious. Salad was fresh & tasty. Fried Goat Cheese, Amazing! Korean BBQ Wings are a nice twist. Dessert was fantastic as well. The Crispy Cheesecake is a great take on the boring cheesecake. It is rich & creamy inside a light & flaky package. Wow! The Chocolate Tart was pure indulgence.
Went here with friends after the auto show. Convenient location, excellent and attentive service, interesting new menu, good specialty cocktails, onion soup was great and not too salty; appetizers were the best, entrees were good but not particularly unique
We stayed at the Airport Marriott prior to leaving on a cruise and decided to eat dinner at AMP 150. Big mistake. The appetizers were the best part although the Brussels Sprouts were over cooked and without texture. They did, however, taste good. The entrees were old tasting and dry. The shank had no sauce, was tough and tasted like it was left over. The tacos were limp, the shells not toasted and were left sitting on the plate. Our server, Susan was excellent so we did not blame her. There were only 2 other tables when we ate so there was no excuse for the poor quality of the food. We would not go back!
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.
