This is a gem of a neighborhood place. The atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable and light. The service was friendly and appropriate (not overbearing, but always responsive). The "medium" hamburger was really rare - only negative.

Food was really exceptional but the service was poor. Not enough wait staff yet all tables were filled. Would be better to open tables as staff is available to ensure the experience is worthy of the reputation and quality of the food coming out of the kitchen.

This restaurant is so delicious. The food is so light (hummus is a must have), and the decor is absolutely stunning. The wine selection is soooo good, perfectly rounds out everything. Would highly recommend!

A few highlights: autumn squash salad, halibut with fennel and dill, orange olive oil cake. All were very favorable and presented nicely. Staff was very attentive. Would definitely return.

Food was delicious but portions were enormous and we weren't warned of that so we were completely too full to finish our entrees which was disappointing.

You'll feel an immediate sense of warmth as you walk into Amali. If it's ambiance doesn't feel enough like an escape from your anxiety-filled life, wait until the appetizer hits your plate (my date and I highly recommend the cauliflower).

It's the small details that made the dining experience at Amali feel extra grand. Sesame bread was the perfect included starter and a nice compliment to the artisan cocktails; the mains didn't come until we finished the appetizer (none of this shuffling of plates on the table business); all members of the staff spoke with knowledge and passion about their favorite dish; the birthday gelato came on a plate with chocolate written in calligraphy (a sure way to get your date to smile).

I had the seafood one. Homemade noodles and perfect amount of chopped up seafood. The dips with flatbread were tasty. Great place with live music. Loved every minute. And the olive oil cake! 😘

I had a very disappointing evening at Amali. The waiters did not wear masks and stood very close to the table. They explained they are vaccinated but I would've felt more comfortable if they wore masks. The service was extremely slow and the entrees arrived an hour and a half after ordering. We sat for a 730pm reservation and didn't finish until almost 10pm. Given the high price point at Amali, I expected a better dining experience.
