Absolutely excellent meal. What a great way to celebrate Hudson Valley Restaurant Week! Although they were very busy, the staff was warm, kind, and professional. Wonderful cocktails!

I expected to have a nice time at Café Amarcord and they did not disappoint. The food was wonderful with perfect portions. The wine was great too. For five people to enjoy a 3 course meal the price was fair. With all these attributes the evening and experience was memorable.

We had a wonderful dinner in this quiet, intimate restaurant with attentive service and creative menu. The lamb ragu was very rich and flavorful and the brussel sprout salad was very refreshing and had great texture. The snapper special was very fresh and a treat for the taste buds. Our dinner did not disappoint. It earned all of its great reviews

The food is fabulous. Don’t sit at the table by the door unless you want to freeze. Our waitress was great but the restaurant should have had 3 people on that day instead of two. Service was 1.5 hours for sandwiches.

very unusual situation ... was there for lunch ... seated well away from a table of 5 or 6 ... but they were so loud and one woman had a huge piercing voice and laugh ... ruined our experience ... food service all was good but for the loud table

This was our first time at this restaurant. The service is outstanding and the plating of the food was great. Menu was limited but had enough for anyone to chose from even picky eater like me. The portion size were great so that you don't overeat. I would definitely go back again.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday at this restaurant. It was our first visit. We will definitely return. The food was very good. We decided to order all of that evenings specials. All delicious except for the duck. The service was excellent. A great pace to the meal and an enjoyable dining experience.

This is a great find in Beacon NY. The food is consistently good (I have been 3 times over a 3 month period when visiting Dia Beacon) but what makes this place a little bit special is the wonderful, professional and personable staff. I usually take 8 to 10 people when we dine there and it is always a big hit! Thank you and see you next summer!

Tables in front have good light from street but TV presence is not compatible with fine dining. Tables in the back are dark, but biggest problem is that table height is too high for a short person sitting either on the bankette or the chairs - uncomfortable!

We've been going to Amacord for several years. It's an excellent place to celebrate special occasions or enjoy an excellent meal with friends. It hasn't disappointed us yet. It will continue being one of our go to places when we want to do something special.

Cafe Amarcord is a cute dinner spot with good food. The service is a little slow - it took about an hour to receive our food, but otherwise would recommend.

We were two couples for dinner on a Saturday night. Restaurant was crowded but not completely full, noise level, which is always a consideration if you care to converse with your dinner companions, was manageable. Choices were ample from the menu, with a few specials. Overall food was very good but I was disappointed with the cocktail (G&T), which was weak, the appetizer (lamb skewers) were very tasty but a meager offering, and the dessert (cheesecake) was minuscule. Prices for these items were not minuscule. My main, a pork chop, was very good and a reasonable portion. I appreciate quality but I also like to receive value. Very good quality, lacking in the value department. Service was fine.

Great food and wine experience. Had the best cavatelli with veal ragu outside of Italy. Wonderful and attentive wait staff but not intrusive. Well trained. We ate outside on the side patio and had a wonderful dining experience. This is authentic Italian food, not Itlo-American.

Food was fresh and delicious, possibly the best veal chop I've eaten anywhere! Friendly, helpful service. Nice, cozy atmosphere. This place could go up against the best of them in big cities. Don't miss it if you're in Beacon!

The atmosphere was relaxing and quiet so we were able to enjoy our conversations. The service was excellent. The bar drinks were delicious. Of the 6 of us 2 had the same meal; one thought it was a bit salty while the other enjoyed the dish. I would definitely return to try other dishes and enjoy a relaxing dinner.
