    2022

Amal dazzles diners with bright, stylish decor that draws inspiration from traditional Lebanese design. This alluring Yorkville restaurant backs up its good looks with an expertly executed Middle Eastern menu that touches on all the classics—dips paired with housemade pita, mezze, well-seasoned skewer platters, and shawarma.

    I celebrated my birthday here yesterday but it was rather disappointing as the decor is kind of worn out and doesn’t look as bright and new as what the online photos depict. Also, the food is expensive for what you get. My cousin and I ordered the 2 person kebab which has 5 skewers: vegetable, lamb, chicken and beef. The chicken breast and beef skewers were rather dry and not very tasty. The tabbouleh salad is also very basic and not worth $19. The meal overall was not memorable and music and chatter got super loud as the evening progressed, making chatting difficult.

    Beautiful beautiful space with Mediterranean hues of white and soft blue. Food took 1hr and 20 minutes to arrive. They offered free dessert to compensate but after that long waiting, no one was hungry.

    A truly awesome experience ever time we go to Amal. Whether it's brunch on a Sunday morning, or for an elegant dinner, this place is worth it every time. Incredible food, spot-on service, beautiful location and decor, great neighborhood, and very fair pricing considering it's a Michelin Star restaurant. Always looking forward to the next visit!

    Where should I start huhh. Someone explain to me how this restaurant is running with a staff that doesn’t even know how to talk to people. I give the ambience a good rating but the staff is definitely not there. The waiter had so much attitude, didn’t even wanted to help us. It was our first date and I’ll be very honest it was ruined, not to mention the bill ended up being $265 dollars with a pinch of attitude with it. When I complained to the manager he didn’t care and just said we’ll see what we can do. Eventually the waiter did come and apologized but the apology doesn’t really help when you ruined a first date. Wouldn’t really recommend this place to anyone
