Description: A sophisticated atmosphere in which to savor innovative and eclectic cuisine. Sample small plates in the bar and lounge area or treat yourself to a four or seven course tasting menu. For that extra special occasion, reserve our chefs table which treats 8 guests to a 12 course blind tasting menu. We take great pride in our ability to wow even the most restrictive of dietary demands.

By far the best upscale dining in Lancaster, and perhaps between NJ and DC. The attention to detail, service, menu selections and wine list are absolutely top notch and would hold their own in a major city. The owners obviously spared no expense with the decor, wine cellar and staff. Yes, it is pricey considering that you are not in a major urban center. But every once in a while you want and need to splurge and this is the place to do it.

Thank you for visiting Amorette and for your kind review. Our goal was to make guests feel like they stepped out of Lancaster and into a big metropolitan city. So reading your review was especially exciting. We greatly appreciate your patronage and hope to see you again soon.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary dinner last night at Amorette. It was simply outstanding in every way. We had the 7-course tasting menu and each dish was prepared so carefully with incredible detail. The presentation was superb and the taste even better. We enjoyed a cocktail before dinner, both of us enjoyed ours very much. We then had wine pairing with our meal. The wait staff, especially Angelo, were outstanding, friendly, and knowledgeable.

It is incredible to have such a great restaurant with world-class cuisine in Lancaster, joining an already exciting restaurant scene.

This restaurant is expensive, but worth it!

We look forward to going back.

We went to Amorette in late July. My wife and each had the four course price fixed for $85.00. The options were varied and everything we selected was great. Try the eggs with truffles appetizer. Words can’t describe how good it is. The antelope was one of the best entrees I’ve had in a long time. The second course lobster selection was too good for my wife to give me a bite. The wine list is amazing as is the decor.
If you are within an hour’s drive, go there.

This Saturday we had dinner at Amorette for the first time. The first impression of the restaurant was great, the decor is incredible, the settings and the ambiance are top-notch. We got sat in the back area and we were greeted by the staff and sommelier. We ordered the 4 courses menu. Although the food was good and the wine list very impressive with such as 500 labels, was struck me most was the inexperience of the serving staff which proved no fine dining experience whatsoever. Our waitress was very knowledgeable on the menu but the maintainace of the table was very poor, empty glasses sat on the table forever, we weren't offered a second drink, our water glasses were empty for the majority of our meal, food was delivered and not explained.
I thought that with such an ambitious project in Lancaster we would have experienced the whole fine dining concept.
Overall our night was good but because of the service I will grade it average.

Thank you for visiting Amorette. I’m sorry that your service was not up to par with the rest of the experience. As you probably know, this type of dining is new to Lancaster and as a result, also to local servers. We have only been open a few months and our goal is certainly that our service is excellent as well. While some of our servers are new and still in training, we will continue to work toward excellence until it is achieved. Hopefully you will see improvement if you choose to visit us again.

After hearing so much about it, we had to see it ourselves, so we stopped in for cocktails and appetizers on my wife's birthday. We were very impressed with the decor, the atmosphere, and the service. Next time we'll have dinner.
