    We went to try their summerlicious menu which was a great value for what you get. We were able to try a lot of things on the menu. The dips were good but the hummus was bland and overrated. The spinach apps were OK and the truffel app was good but rich. The Fatoush salad was amazing and I would definitely come back for that. The skewers platter was very good but the lamb shank was underwhelming. I am bias on the lamb because I can make a very good shank. The desserts were the worst items, they tasted like a grandmothers old perfume. Over all beautiful restaurant.

    We have been to this beautiful restaurant a few times and each time it is a better experience. Food is always delicious, service is lovely. We were even greeted by the owner who offered us a dessert on the house which was outstanding. It was quite busy at lunch and we were seated by a group of seven which made it a little noisier than usual.

    We have been to Amal many times, but this was the first time bringing a party for my wife’s birthday with a party of 6 and it was a terrible & embarrassing experience to say the least. Upon arrival, we brought our own birthday cake with candles for to surprise her with at the end of our meal but I’ll get to that in a bit. Prior to arrival, I had left a note for Amal specifically mentioning that please refrain mentioning things such as “are you a party of 6”, etc. since it’s supposed to be a surprise that more guests were arriving. But the server did just that. Once everyone arrived, we ordered our food and all 3 couples ordered the Amal’s Hummus, however, when it arrived, none of us received any pita for about 20 mins until we asked for it. Moreover, one couple received their main dish about 50 mins after the other two couples received their main dish. No apology, just the server blaming the kitchen, saying “they forgot” (we think the server herself forgot, but who knows). Now the cake, the server brings out the cake when not everyone is even at the table, none of the candles were lit (even though she was instructed to do so) and she says “is it someone’s birthday?”, which was extremely awkward. Immediately, goes on to tell us that they can cut the cake for us for $5 a slice and once we declined, she immediately asks us, okay would you like to pack for take out? Making us feel uncomfortable & making us feel extremely rushed. We decided to take the cake & cut it elsewhere. The server brings back the cake in a box & bag, but once we got home, we realized that all our candles are missing. Finally, the audacity to throw on a gratuity charge of 20%. We always leave a tip but I can confidently say, this server did not deserve 1%. It was a slap in the face. On top of that, she goes on to mention, “if you guys want, you can add additional tip.” The manager was sorry but I expect Amal to reach out to me asap with an apology since our candles are missing also.

    This was our fourth diner at Amal in three years. We are from out town. Amal didn’t disappoint. We were back for an anniversary dinner and had the summer delicious menu Prix fix. The food was fresh, flavorful and services was impeccable, not missing a beat.

    Confusion over summerlicious…did not apply to weekends! What?? Our food was salty, my chicken shawarma was dry. We love the setting of the restaurant, but the food was so disappointing.
