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 ...
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 men ...
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.

Supurb experience. From the excellent service to the chef's selections for my multi-course meal, everything was on point. I was skeptical of relinquishing control of my meal to the chef, but I was not disappointed.

Food was phenomenal. Had the AMP150 burger, Tacos, Pierogi's, and Mac n Cheese. Tacos were perfect, tasty. The mac n Cheese was the best I had ever had, the Pierogi's were perfectly cooked, very tasty and the burger was one of the best.
Great! ...as usual
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.
Excellent food with service to match!
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!
A good restaurant, as yet undiscovered?
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 ...
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.
Best place for a romantic dinner for two!
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!
Not a good place for a date
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.
Awesome Wait Staff and Delicious Dishes
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!
Good food. Pleasant service.
We had a wonderful time, however, we were sat at a round booth, and someone was sat at the table facing directly toward us. It was awkward staring at a business dinner while on a date. That being said, the service was friendly and the food was delicious. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Moral of the story, ask to be sat away from other people!
We stopped on the way home from Playhous ...
We stopped on the way home from Playhouse Square early Sunday evening. This is a great place just about anytime but Sunday turned out to be their slowest dining since they are at the Marriott. It turned out to be one of the better ideas I've had. Everything was perfect. Steak Diane was perfectly prepared looked like a magazine photo and my son won the tables clean plate award. I had pork schnitzel that truly was perfect and better then I have had at restaurants that say this is their speciality. AMAZING. I was so happy I couldn't finish so I had a little bit more at lunch today. Kid meal was nice and not something fried and pulled out of a freezer. I know they weren't busy for early dinner but staff was friendly like previous visits.
We've stopped here for a few years now and then when our travels bring us on I-71 near airport. Nice quiet family dinner prepared by a chef and staff that appreciate your visit.
Some negative comments are very confusing to me. If you have never dined here I hope your first trip will be as positive as our experiences have been at AMP 150.
This was a great find. We were in town for our anniversary and this was our dinner before a show. We both ordered the chefs choice. Each course was amazing and offered things we wouldn't have normally ordered. It was delicious and a great, romantic setting!
Wonderful staff highly recommended
We got to the restaurant to find out they closed a little early. The bartender helped us out and told us not to worry he will take care of us and did a great job in doing so. I would highly recommend this place. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure your food is great and experience is wonderful 5 stars all the way in my book
Our experience started off slow, but it ...
Our experience started off slow, but it got better. My boyfriend and I sat at the bar. He asked about draft beers and the bartender didn't know. Her service overall just lacked. She was cold, unfriendly and unknowledgeable. Her shift must have been ending though, because halfway through service we received a male bartender that was 100 times better. We started with the mussels which were great and moved on to the truffle Mac and cheese and braised lamb. The truffle Mac and cheese was phenomenal, the braised lamb itself was excellent, but the side of beans were boring and bland and didn't match the dish. I think serving the lamb with some vegetable would be better, but that's just me. The atmosphere was a little off. The restaurant is located in a hotel lobby, but my boyfriend and I warmed up to it after a couple drinks.
Service a Problem
Two things stand out from our evening. The first was the wine. We ordered a bottle and then wanted to order another bottle of the same wine. They were out of the wine and offered a substitute making sure to tell us several times that the wine they were substituting was $20 more a bottle and they were giving it to us at the price of original order. What exactly did they expect us to do? Volunteer to pay the additional $20? The second problem came from one of the dinner orders. One person at our table ordered wings without any sauce after checking to be sure this could be done. There was a dietary restriction reason for doing this. The order came with sauce anyway. He then had to sit and wait a good 20 minutes for the wings without sauce to arrive while the rest of the table was served their food.
