Had brunch with a party of 6 after a wedding. The food and service was great. Surprisingly bright and airy ambiance for the dining room. It is quite small so can get noisy if if its busy, but would still highly recommend over all the other american/french brunch spots in the area.
The restaurant is pretty, the service was good but the food with the exception of the appetizer ( we share clams) was extremely salty.
We barely touched the 2 main pasta dishes.
We complained and, even though we didn’t asked for it, they credited us for the 2 main dishes.
It was our first time there and maybe they had a bad day
Our first time here - food was delicious and the service wonderful. Will definitely be back!!
Great tasting food, interesting drinks and wonderful service.
Great food! Live music was amazing! Will definitely be back!!
Excellent food. Poor service. Ugly patio. Surprisingly strong cocktails
JenniferF- I'm sorry you did not find us worthy of 5 stars. Service is something we take a lot of pride in. Please come back to give us another try.- James
An OK restaurant for a casual dinner/conversation. A class down from the really strong NYC Italians, but food reliably good and often interesting. Not very expensive either.
Rakak- Thank you for the review. I'm pleased to hear you did not find us overpriced but did enjoy the experience. -James
Amali was fantastic. We had a Saturday night reservation. Outdoor seating was cosy. It's Manhattan so occasional car/people traffic can get noisy but tolerable. Our waiter was great. All of his recommendations were spot on. We enjoyed everything he suggested. We shared the Bronzino for 2. Amazing! Drinks were yummy. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely recommend.
NatalieM- Thank you for the wonderful review. Our servers greatly value each table and I am pleased to hear you felt attended to and that their guidance was spot on. I hope you come back soon. Chef Alex is always adding exciting things to our menu. -James
The food, the staff and environment were amazing. So nice to have some normalcy at such a great place after all this time. We’ll be back!
This was my second visit and the food is delicious. The service is so great and the atmosphere is perfect. So glad I found Amali and will definitely keep coming back.
Kaybee- Thank you for coming back to see us and for the wonderful review. Summer is upon us and Chef Alex is adding new menu items daily. Hope to see you soon! -James
Delicious food in a lovely friendly atmosphere. City traffic does make for a noisy meal but such is life in the city.
Love it there!! Definitely a great place to try for brunch.
Food is absolutely delicious and unique. We did the 6 course tasting menu and it was superb although too much food for me!
The food and atmosphere are very good, and our server was kind, thoughtful, and informative — only drawback was service was slow and we had to ask to order our dinner. Would go again and do recommend it, but go on a night when you have no other plans.
Absolutely delicious food & exceptional service! I would definitely recommend this wonderful restaurant.
Excellent food and service. The Branzino was the best I have eaten anywhere.
The food is good but the prices are very high for what you get. I expect to be truly wowed by a $28 tiny appetizer.
Also the service was slow and it was not even busy.
The food is tasty though and the decor is pretty and the backroom has a nice skylight.
attentive service, outstanding food preparation, fresh (featuring many local NY ) ingredients, never disappoints, menu seems a bit scaled back from pre-covid but there is something for everyone, thank you
So lovely. Highly recommend! The bartender was great and our server was so fun!
Excellent service and food. Wait staff was wonderful
We had a great time at Sunday brunch. Food and drinks were excellent, particularly the salt crusted sea bass and tomato confit spaghetti. Service was outstanding. Would definitely go back.
Amazing food and service and beautiful
Delicious food, great service, amazing drinks and lovely atmosphere
Everything was fantastic. So glad we picked this spot!
I love Amali! Excellent food and the service is always wonderful!
I was impressed by the quality of food. Since COVID, many restaurants have been doing so-so on their menu selections as well as food quality. Amali, has NOT. The food was yummy, with bottle less brunch drinks, definitely worth going!
Delicious food and excellent service. When booking I mentioned we were celebrating a family member’s engagement and the staff treated us to complimentary drinks at the start and end of the meal. Really nice touch. Would happily recommend this restaurant to anyone and hopefully revisit when we visit NYC again.
Great food, our waiter Jose was very friendly and the manager Despoina was excellent. Definitely recommended
Good food, good service. Lovely place to eat outdoors
jdine- Thank you for the review. We hope to see you again soon to try our new menu additions. -James
Wonderful service, amazing food. Enjoyed it very much we will definitely be back.
Thank you for the amazing review. We hope you return soon! -James
Not good. I would not go.
El servicio y atención de primera. Los sunchokes estupendos. La carne wagyu deliciosa. El mackarel marinado en tequila buenísimo! Gracias!
Food was delicious. We were a party of nine. Service was a bit slow even though it was not busy. Two of the entrees were cold and had to be reheated.
MerleneF- I am glad you enjoyed your dining experience and apologize if there were any issues coming out of the kitchen. Our chef is putting out new menu items and know they will be wonderful additions. Please come back to give them a try! -James
Stellar across the board! One of my best experiences in 25 years in NYC.
Savva- Thank you so much for the 5 stars. Such positive words are greatly appreciated!! -James
