    Major disappointment. Could not get get correct order to correct diner. Sloppy service.Good wild mushroom caponata. Good sesame bread. Only adequate halibut, salad acceptable. Iced tea ok. Overly loud music. Will not return.

    We sat in rear greenhouse space. Nice room but Very noisy w 2 large groups. Service was ok except when servers went to the front section and we couldn’t get their attention. Best dish was roasted sunchokes. Salmon tartare and tuna carpaccio were ok. Nothing special or great. Very tasty bread w feta/butter. Its a nice easy location. Pricey for lunch

    We went to Amali after shopping for my wedding gown. It was the perfect spot! Quiet, but you aren’t judged if you have a group and you’re having a good time! The food and drinks were fantastic and our server was wonderful! The cocktails are amazing and definitely get the mezze sampler- it was all of our favorite!!

    No one approached our table after we were sat a solid 30 minutes. We finally stopped someone to ask them to take our drink order. It was awkward. The owner or manager seemed to visit a number of tables, right next to ours, and never glanced our way. I think his mother was visiting the restaurant that night. I thought the food was just ok, nothing special, but the service was poor. No need to return.

    They weren't fully open and ready for patrons when we came for our reservation. Despite it being nearly empty, they eventually sat us in an awkward and cramped corner. It then took 15+ minutes for a waiter to come and take our order. The food was pretty good, but I would not go back given the poor service. We were also there for restaurant week, so the pricing seemed reasonable. The normal menu prices seem over-priced for what you get.

    Went here during restaura week and between my husband and I we tried lots of dishes and loved it! We had the roasted sunchokes with marcona almonds, whipped feta, mushroom caponata, clam linguine and duck breast all superb! Paired with 1st cru Burgundian Pinot noir which paired lovely with the sunchokes, caponata, duck and ok with the linguine.

    We happened to be in the neighborhood and needed a place to eat. Amali exceeded all expectations. We LOVED everything we ordered. The arugula salad with salmon, the ancient grains salad, the burrata, the broccoli (who would have guessed) -- all fabulous. The outdoor area was great and the waitstaff was attentive. I rarely cross the park to eat and now, I have to go back. An absolute find!

    I have eaten here about 4 times in the last 2-3 months. Food is amazing. Lots of fresh and interesting options here without the menu being too esoteric or large. Don’t miss out on the mushroom caponata, burrata w mint and peas, mezze assortment, sunchokes, etc. Can’t go wrong with almost anything on the menu. We always seem to over order here. Interior is chic but casual Greek vintage vibe. It can get a bit loud when busy. However, I much prefer sitting indoors than on 60th st bc it’s not the most charming block (they could probably add more plants to the outdoor, overhead fans and low lighting would help) but we still had a fine dinner outside last night. I love the Greek wine selection- our server recommended a really nice dry Greek white- a fun departure from the run of the mill summer options of rose or Ca/Italian/French whites. A much-needed unique and delicious newcomer to the UES.

    We had a fabulous meal consisting of several shared appetizers and sides. Everything was top notch. Our waiter couldn’t have been nicer. We ate outside so I can’t comment on indoor ambiance or noise. It’s pricey but the food met expectations at Those prices. Note that 18% tip is included on every bill- and the menu explains their philosophy on that.

    We chose this restaurant because the outside seating is suppose to be lovely. The back courtyard was booked by a private party so we were seated on the street. I would not have chosen this restaurant for a special occasion if I knew we would be seated on the street. In hindsight, I should have called to confirm the outside seating but I saw no references to seating on the street when I checked it out online. The food was ok, but not worth the price. The server was very good, but we were short an entree. We didn't mention it because we decided to make do and two people shared it. I'm sure if we asked for another entree it would have come quickly. I think it was a communication error, but that shouldn't happen, not at this price point.

    WAY overpriced, and therefore would not recommend. Yes the service was attentive and my pasta entree was tasty, but the prices are extremely high considering the plates are basic pasta and seafood entrees. There's nothing special about this place or their menu to warrant such high prices. It's very small and cramped inside, the scent of cigarettes wafting in from outside and there was a crying baby next to us. I just can't get over a plate of 6 (average) raviolis costing over $30+. This place is totally average but is priced as if it's something special.
