Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale.
The Amy's Baking Company meltdown continues. What began as a Yelp smackdown three years ago, has blown up into a national firestorm after the Scottsdale-based restaurant appeared on the season finale of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. If you haven't seen the show, you have to check it out.

Well, after the show aired, the Internet imploded on the restaurant's Yelp and Facebook pages, and Reddit (of course) jumped in the mix, too.

To take it back to where it all began, here are the top 10 comments on ABC's Yelp page. Not surprisingly, the restaurant gets only a one-star review. (Note: Reviews are posted as is, so sorry for any typos).

10.)

After hearing wonderful things about Amy's Baking Company, I immediately chartered a private jet from Florida to Arizona. On the limousine ride from the airport to the restaurant, I could barely contain my excitement to experience the greatest meal of all time.

I walked inside with the biggest grin on my face and was quickly approached by Samy who asked me if I had a reservation. I did not have one, though the restaurant was empty, and I jokingly told him that I was sure he could accommodate me. It became quickly clear that Samy did not have a sense of humor. He wielded a serrated bread knife and told me that he would slice me like the loaves of bread his wife bakes fresh if I disrespected him again.

These stars given purely for the entertainment value associated with the episode of Kitchen Nightmares they were featured on and the digital shit show that commenced afterward. I would probably go here, just to see if I could catch some awesome Amy B. bat shit crazy action in person, but I'm not a fan of Arizona in general. It's as if Satan himself took a big, hot shit there and then wandered on to vomit Texas up.

I'm REALLY, REALLY, REALLY hoping for a spin-off show on Bravo.

Come on Andy Cohen! Work it out!

I brought a package of "Putney Pasta Three Cheese Ravioli" (my favorite pre-made ravioli!!) to Amy's Baking Company and they were able to heat it very well.

This is the best tasting food I have ever eaten in my entire life! I could eat here for every meal of every day, it is that delicious.

Amy is also the most beautiful and inspiring person I've ever met. She is so nice and treats all of her employees very well.

This is definitely a real costumer and absolutely NOT Amy & Sammy from Amy's Baking Company.

Wow, what a fantastic place to eat!

I came all the way from Boston after I heard about their stellar recipes and how much Gordon Ramsay had praised them on television. After being shown a table, I looked around at all the other pleased customers enjoying their food. It took 2 hours for my food to come out but it was worth the wait.

I was extremely excited to try the fig/proscuitto pizza which, upon arriving at my table, looked like serrated kidneys lying atop bird shit. The breadsticks were less half baked than Dave Chappelle and the sparkling kitchen was marred by the blood of the most recent waitress (she was attempting to crawl across the floor and out the door after being beaten with a whisker by Amy).

After watching the Gordon Ramsey episode with these 2 twice now  I would never waste my time going to her place to eat  She is so disrespectful to everyone and if she ever laid a hand on me she would be charged with assault.  She is a total biotch to her employees and to curse at customers as both her and Sammy do unrespectful  and degrading.  I hope they go under because that is all they deserve

There are a lot of wonderful locally owned businesses in Phoenix with owners who really care about their patrons and their employees.  I don't think Amy's Bakery has much of a chance to survive at this point.  I'm suprised anyone would bother going at this point.

On a more positive note, I just want to say something about my favorite breakfast/lunch place and draw a nice contrasting picture.

Yvonne's Cafe: A family run restaurant where the owner's cherish the customers and their opinions, food is consistently good and served quickly, the servers keep all of their tips and love to work there. No one has children in cats bodies, no cyber bullying, no yelling nor swearing at customers or staff, no hour long wait for soggy burgers, no one is calling the FBI.
A restaurant run the right way by a friendly respectful family serving good food, quickly with a smile and genuine appreciation for their customer's business.
The way it should be!

Samy,  that wife of yours needs to be in serious therapy and I could see that you know that in your eyes.  But you are such a pussy, you are scared to death of her!  What a prima donna BITCH!  Do both of you a favor and have her committed; no actually get a double room for the both of you.  You two are the rudest people I have ever seen and do NOT need to be working with the public.  Both of you think you are better than others by the horrible way you treat human beings.  And taking the wait staff tips-unbelievable that anyone would work for you,  you selfish asshole! Karma baby, karma!!!!  Close up and leave Arizona!  You have embarrassed your community with your tough guy attitude and your mentally sick wife;  your business is doomed and you have no one to blame but yourselves.

Notice the illuminati black and white floor and all of the 'diners' are Greenbergs...This whole thing was staged and faked for ratings.  Stop falling for this crap.  EVERYONE WAS ACTORS!  This was as fake as Sandy Hook and the Boston Bombings.  WAKE UP AMERICA!

They are so infamous it's time for them to franchise their business model and cash in.

Are these people actually thinking that hiring a publicist is going to right their ship??... Way too late for that!! After their self inflicted public flogging, hiring a mouthpiece at this hour is like going to the bathroom after you've shit your pants!! I swear to God, I'm a peaceful man, but I have never seen a woman that I'd like to punch in the face more than Amy "Booze -n- Blow" Bossingham!!... After this moronic spectacle dies down and the press has bled their story dry I doubt that they'll be able to draw flies if they paint their building with shit!! "Amy's Baking Company" is likely the one and only restaurant in all of Arizona where the food actually tastes better as vomit!!... Did Samy call his wife a "jewel in the sand" or "desert"?? I think that term is actually slang for "Camel Turd"!!...

Hey ABC, why don't you just do this town a big favor, cut your losses and shut it down?  Afterward, we can all bask in the warm afterglow of historical flaming reviews!

If that dude had put his hands on me, he'd be on the floor looking for his teeth!  There is no excuse for this kind of behavior!  I hope they go out of business and have to sell a kidney!  What kind of wretched scum act like that in public?!

Seriously, the truth about ABC is far more entertaining than this fan fiction.

The Yelp trollings are hilarious and creative a lot of the time, but I have ambivalent feelings about them. The fact is, (S)Amy is doing the best job of anyone in trolling themselves by their batshitcrazy responses to legit reviews that they don't meet their standards.

These people are horrors. Some ex-mob guy who gets seduced by a hardcore tramp who thinks she can cook, neither of whom knows anything about running a restaurant but have attitude that's right out of a Tarantino movie. How have these morons stayed in business? Thank you Gordon Ramsey for showing everyone what assholes look like.

Felt a bit unsettling to have one of the loudest voices on the Valley stay unusually quiet on this one... Just sayin'....

Best review I saw was actually just before the show aired. It was simply:


Ordered a heaping bowl of crazy. Was not disappointed.

I'm shocked that you found this to be the "top 10" reviews.  There are so many better reviews on Yelp that its incredibly disappointing that you think that these are the top 10.  Hell, even the one written in all "meow" was better than most of these.

@mark14nx05y Wow.  No matter how bad they are, this is not an okay thing to say about anyone.

@darrenscott46 You've got to admire the balls of any publicist that would take on this client. Surely it's a career killer

@JohnQ.Public Feel free to go through all 1,000+ "reviews" on Yelp and choose your own top 10. Post them here in the comments for everyone's enjoyment.

@ladyrc @mark14nx05y Actually, in Amy's case it is. There are people out there who believe she may have some form of BPD, but even if so, there is nothing worth saving in that life. she is a convicted felon who ruined other people's lives and didnt think twice about it. I hope the business goes under, and they both commit suicide because they have nothing left. But they won't being the narcissists that they are. Amy doesnt deserve to live. She is not a fighter but an ignorant moron. And yes I am not afraid to pass judgement on such a vile piece of human scum

@JohnQ.Public Sounds like sound advice to me. He's right - if you don't find these ones very good, you can choose your own Top 10. This is, in essence, an opinion piece, after all! So, if you disagree, why not tell us which ones you like? 

I'd enjoy it! I'm curious, too.
