    We celebrated our anniversary and it was great. We booked the special occasion waterfront experience with the personalized menu add-on. We we arrived we had a table with a great view of the water and Happy Anniversary on the menu. The food and drinks were great and so was our server. We would definitely be returning.

    We made reservations for Amara around 8PM, but ended up just eating at the bar. Steffan, the bartender was amazing, which matched the food and drinks that we had. The restaurant is in a great location and has amazing views. It's a little pricey, but worth it.

    Food was great, especially the yuca cheese puffs. we had red snapper and short ribs with gnocchi and meals were a good portion size. service was very very slow, which was disappointing and the fact that people could walk by the tables outside with their dogs was a little off putting. overall, the setting was beautiful with the lights and trees everywhere.

    Beautiful idea with attentive and great service. We had yuca cheese puffs that were sprinkled with Parmesan and lightly fried which made them lighter than normal and the combination of cheese and yuca made this a do again dish. puffs. The smoked fished dip was paired with giant salted tostones and the tomato vinaigrette on top took it up a notch. The ají panca shrimp cocktail came with large shrimp and pickled veggies and was delicious. We also had the lamb chorizo and it was flavorful. The ambiance and setting made this a great date night!

    The place is beautiful. We went on a Sunday night and although there was a gender reveal party upstairs, the terrace and dinning areas were fairly empty. We asked to seat near the water since there were 4 empty tables and were told that “we should have paid $10 extra per person when we made the reservation”. It seemed odd (with empty tables). The food was good but very small portions for big prices. No vegetables at all included with any entries…. Service wasn’t great. Again, for such a big place we only saw a couple of waiters. The one taking care of us had a so so attitude, not very pleasant. Perhaps being Sunday evening he was a bit tired. It was an OK experience for such a beautiful place.

    Amara at Paraiso is a great place to gather with family and friends. The food and ambience are excellent. Unfortunately, our server Susana was not the finest; she did her required diligence but was not totally engaged at all. She had no personality and never greeted us or said her name. When the bill arrived at the table, we saw her name. She appeared agitated by us, which I believe was due to our initial indecision about where we wanted to sit. Overall, food is great! And the view is spectacular!

    This time service was not good :( we were 4 and sat inside. The " good looking" waiter need some training in order to take care of his tables not only when he brought the check that stood up by as a soldier!
