My husband and I went here last night to celebrate our anniversary. We arrived at 7pm and the restaurant was practically empty. I counted 6 people in the entire place. It is all wooden inside and has Japanese decor-kimono type fabric. The bar looks absolutely gorgeous-the back where the bottles are is lit up and it just glows.
Our waiter was great-attentive, knowledgable....we were offered a choice of water and I ended up ordering a cocktail which was AWESOME-I believe it was called boudou. It had an edible flower on the top and although I did snap a photo, it was too dark and not visible. Since it was fairly empty, our dishes came out rather quickly. The food was fresh and delicious-flavor combinations were spot-on! I wasn't a fan of my tempura coming out on a bed of nails (I had brussel sprout tempura and each sprout was on a nail-ummm interesting), but it was super delicious! I also had the tofu ramen which was great-very tasty and reminiscent of my time in South Korea.I ended my night with a white and green asparagus salad with teriyaki-fantastic!
I won't be going to Ame weekly because of the prices but for a special occasion, most definitely! I was told that Thursday, Friday and the weekends it gets packed so make sure you call for reservations!
