    Excellent food - very flavourful and without piling on the salt (as some other places do). Meat is extremely tender and fresh. Amazing service and amazing vibe. Top notch would come back again and again.

    Food was great, we enjoyed it a lot. The only thing that was a bummer at the entrance was that there was no Standard table for us even though I had the booking reservations since a week ago for my boyfriend’s bday and I had selected the Standard seating instead of Bar seating/high top chairs. The girl at the entrance first said you can go and pick whichever high top chairs you wanna sit or you can sit at the bar!!! ( why would I want to sit at the bar when I make reso in advance!!) and then she walked us to the high top chairs to pick. We sat down and her supervisor assured us they will give us a standard table per my booking. Then they cleared a standard table and we switched. Please make sure to call them in advance even though you make reservations through OpenTable and let them know what type of a seating you’d like. Also, I had already included in my booking reservation that there is a special occasion and it’s my boyfriend’s bday, no one knew..had to inform the waiter to put a candle for him on our dessert, another disappointment.

    Gorgeous interior. Amazing service, very attentive. They come to wipe down the table in between courses and always make sure your water is filled and plates are cleared. Food was good but quite pricey for portion size. Expected for Yorkville but too bad because other than that I really liked this place.

    The place looks amazing, the food is great, excellent quality…and the staff is very profesional and friendly. However while the servers are fantastic something is not very organized. Appetizers came WITH the meal and part of the meal was cold and we had to request to have it replaced. Aside from that the food was delicious and overall a great experience. They just may have had a bad busy day. I would certainly go back and recommend the place highly.

    Great service, however very average brunch food. My wife ordered an omelette and I would best describe it as bland/no flavour. I ordered pancakes and again, average at best. Maybe brunch isn’t what they’re known for and having dinner there would change my opinion…but in all honestly our food at brunch was terribly disappointing and I’ve experienced much better at other restaurants in Toronto.

    We had the crispy eggplant, fattoush salad, roasted cauli, and grilled octopus. Everything was good but the fattoush was our favorite. We agreed it was the best salad we'd ever had. The cocktails were also lovely. Service was friendly and accommodating while also giving us our space, which I appreciate.

    I really like this place… and I usually have lunch there.., this evening it was too noisy… I felt I had to almost shout to be heard just across our tiny table. Food was good… my friend loved beef tenderloin and I had falafels which I strongly recommend. Service was exceptional and I am excited to go to Amal again sometime soon.

    Servers were extremely rude, my credit card was stolen when the place was at maybe 25% capacity - LIKELY by our server, and so many staff were standing around doing nothing and not attending to their tables. Food was cheaply made and extremely over priced. Will not be returning.
