For sweeping ocean views and Spanish small (and large plates), it doesn’t get any better than Amada, the Atlantic City outpost of Chef Jose<br />Garces’ famous Philadelphia tapas restaurant. Amada transports you to straight to Spain, where sangria flows from terra cotta pitchersand the smell of sizzling chorizo entices you to order just one more plate for the table.<br /><br />House Specialties<br />Spanish Octopus, Garlic Shrimp, Tortilla Española, Lobster Paella, Whole Roasted Suckling Pig (must be ordered 48 hours in advance),<br />House Made Fresh Fruit Sangrías.<br /><br />Private Parties: Amada welcomes groups of all sizes. Events can be booked throughout the restaurant and in our private dining rooms seven days a week. For parties of 12 or more, please call our private events team to schedule your reservation at (609) 225-4939 or email Jenna.Moore@garcesgroup.com

"Dining on the ocean seemed like an absolute necessity while staying at The Revel. Awesome hotel, the restaurant has a modern spanish theme. Tapas is the way to go and I had the garlic shrimp and the Piquillo stuffed with crabmeat. Both were very good. The Serrano ham salad was big enough for two. A few drinks and I was casino bound."

Il Corso establishment was founded in 1993 by two native Italian women from the south of Italy.<br /><br />They chose to name their restaurant "Il Corso" because it means "the path". Their goal is to guide their clients on a path to a wonderful experience.<br /><br />We pride ourselves on selecting the finest ingredients for our recipes. In addition to our menu, we offer daily specials that your server will present to you.<br />Il Corso's warm, cozy ambiance is complimented by an exquisite selection of moderately priced wines, full bar and nurtured by a friendly and knowledgeable staff serves.

"The lightly fried Calamari was served fresh and light. The lentils in olive oil and the fresh bread were very good. The drinks were a good size. My seafood Possilico - clams, mussels, fish and calamari in a zesty red sauce was good - calamari was a bit chewy and the clams very tiny, the Branzino was cooked lightly, deboned and was excellent. The Pork Milanese was tasty and not greasy. Coffee finished off the night."

"This strip mall located American restaurant with Asian and spiritual twists is terrific. Being watched over by paintings of the Dalai Lama and Mother Teresa add to the feeling of health and peacefulness. An Appetizer of Asian spiced wet rub Pork Ribs were not only a hot at our table but many of those around us. The cod special over a mash was tasty but could have used a bit more zing. The paella had large clams that were a bit chewy, the mussels, salmon and saffron rice were all very good. A Dessert of Bananas Foster was very nice but a bit under sweetened, could of used more caramellyness.
Wine servie by the glass was excellent as was the decafs at the end of the meal.

"The wine list is good but I received the wrong wine, I chose at $15 more for the bottle, it was a delicious Amarone none the less. My wife and I shared the wedge salad and it was tasty. Our friends had the mussels and one of the small plates. It was when the main arrived that palates were excited. The steak was superb, juicy, flavorful and cooked perfectly. The pasta with seafood was lapped up and thoroughly enjoyed. Off my weight watchers diet for the night I ordered the foie gras burger substituting the fries for string beans. It was sensational. We finished the meal sharing a smores which was gooey and chewey and delicious along with a great cup of decaf coffee. I can't remember a better meal in a long time. A bit pricey but excellent."

Carmine's, NYC's Legendary Family Style Restaurant, is to serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast - which means large portions of home-style antipasti, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on large platters designed for sharing. And when we say large, we mean large. An entree here could easily feed four to six average eaters. If you are in the market for better than average family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.

"Just like being in a small Ristorante in Italy. Great wine list and terrific food. The Tuscan bread was crusty and light. The Insalata Carciofi was crunchy and well falvored paired with Arugula and Slices of Parmesan. The Chicken was rolled with Prosciutto and vegetables on abed of creamy potatoes. I will be back."

"First there is no detail in the beautiful restaurant that has been missed. The decor is very Hollywood but truly elegant. The food is all light and very flavorful. Don't look for quantity but quality. The Grilled Octopus and the Salad and both the Hanger Steak and the Filet were excellent."

"The restaurant was very nice. The salads were hit or miss. The pot stickers didn't impress.
The fish was cooked well as were the steaks. Perhaps it was the $29.95 Monday prixe fixwe, but I thought it was goodnot outstanding as I remember my first visit in Hawaii.
