Success! Thanks for posting your review of Ame Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.


The best ice cream place in the city is definitely this one. I really love the scoops that they have in here, the buzz is always usually right and the buzz lead me right to here.

Dinner at Ame inside the St. RegisHotel in San Francisco was magnificent. Taking into account that we did not have reservations yet were still seated in under 30 minutes, the wait was reasonable for a Saturday night. \r \r I am in town for the NASFT Winter Fancy Food Show and this chic, dark restaurant was exactly what I needed for a relatively quick, unplanned dinner meeting. \r \r Ame is located past the lob... view more

Japanese inspired cuisine

When you walk in the clean and refined decor immediately portends the simple elegant food that follows. The chefs use of Japanese ingredients and techniques lends a unique twist the the standard California nuevo style. The tuna tartare is a poetic interpretation of a traditional sushi roll, replacing the salty sweet of the soy with decadent shaved foie gras. Great for a romantic night out.

Service was great, food not so much.

The atmosphere was very nice, and the service was perfect. The food, however, was not the highlight of the visit. The items were filled with too many different ingredients. Scallops with chilies and grapefruit did not mix right for me. The grapefruit was successful at bringing down the chilies, but the flavors did not complement each other at all. I will say the presentation was perfect.\r The green egg soup dish wa... view more

Typical Hotel Restaurant

Sure, the hotel is glamorous but this restaurant just doesn't cut the mustard. Bland sushi, weak cocktails, cheap-seeming in an inexplicable way despite the upscale hotel surrounding it. If you want to spend $200 to find out for yourself, go for it, but you'll be wishing you took my advice.

We came for lunch and Ame did not disappoint! The restaurant is upscale but not very pretentious. Needless to say, it was expensive so I would suggest lunch over dinner since most of the same dishes are served for lunch at a fraction of the price. \r \r We started off with a few appetizers, tempura poke, ceviche, the hamachi, and oysters, all of which had great flavors and presentation. For my entree, I had the... view more

Stellar Service and Fresh Delicious Fare

My sweetie brought me here to celebrate our secret anniversary. From our first course to the last, I was supremely satisfied. The cracker jack dessert was a kick--very appropriate for our occasion. I love the stark look of the place--no muss, no fuss. Just neat as a pin and focused on the star of the show--THE FOOD! This place sets a standard in excellence, particularly for those of us who don't enjoy places dripping... view more

Bland Interior and Overpriced!

I consider myself a fairly well-acquainted diner within SF so I was really keen to check out Ame as I had heard fairly good comments from a couple of friends. The St. Regis is, of course, well-heeled and caters to a fairly well-to-do crowd, however, the restaurant interior seemed a total afterthought. More of a stark, sterile, lobby-like feeling - definitely lacking any warmth whatsoever. The sake options were ext... view more

I had the pleasure of dining here recently and liked it so much, I came back the next night. I had the ""Taste of Ame"" sampler both nights and both times, I was truly impressed. The sashimi was the best I have ever had, and I have had my share. For dessert I'd go with the ""Cracker Jack"", you'll thank me later. Don't let the ""uber-chic"" label scare you off; the service was not only professional, but warm as w... view more

Tasty Sensuous Romantic Fresh

I was fortunate to dine with an intelligent and crafty gentleman who allowed Chef Hiro Sone to create for us his signature ""Taste of Ame."" Each course was elegantly prepared, incredibly fresh, and beautifully presented on perfectly chosen presentation china. Such a devilish little detail, but very important to those of us who enjoy eye-feel as much as mouth-feel.\r \r The sashimi was among the best I've ever expe... view more
