My wife have always searched for good, individually owned restaurants throughout Southern California. Often we are disappointed, but occasionally we find a very good, or even great place that we return to often. We discovered Amori

Like the previous poster noted on their Valentines Day experience, the wait was horrendously long. Reservations were at 7pm. We were seated slightly earlier but in the outdoor patio. We sat at a table too far for the single wall mounted

I had one of the best meals EVER at Restaurant Amori! (I think other reviewers were expecting a good Denny's or something... this place rocks! But it IS "fine-dining" and priced accordingly. I heard the owner/cook was even on Iron Chef!)

I've eaten here twice and both times found the food and service to be superb. I love the sorbet you receive as an intermezzo between courses - it's a nice touch. Can't go wrong if you order the catfish...it's very familiar as Chef

Chef Simental really knows how to whip up a mouthwatering feast. His catfish here is even better than the ones he had at Shiro's. The Prix Fixe is definitely the way to go. Never miss out on the heavenly creme brulee. The ambience is
