Amanis has always been one of our favorite restaurants and we were excited to try one of their special themed menus. This one was New Orleans themed and it did not disappoint. From start to finish it was outstanding!

If you haven’t tried this place or been recently, you are missing out! Such unique combinations and creations of all the food that you love. I want to try everything, so hard to choose! I adore the BYOB drinks that they can make for you. Always a favorite place for me to go with my friends! Great service and hospitality. Enjoy!

This restaurant is a little far for us but always worth the drive. Salmon was the best I've ever had ! Service was perfect ! Always a great meal. People next to us had the cheese plate which looked wonderful but I wouldn't be able to eat a meal after that. Maybe to share as an app would work. The bread pudding we shared for dessert was lovely. A good place for a romantic dinner for two or to bring a small group.

We’ve eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The service is common sensical and down to earth. Servers are well-versed on all the menu items. Entrees are creative and unique. Above all, the food is delicious. It tastes really, really good.

Food was quite good. My wife and I were there for Valentines so it was a limited menu. We each had shrimp bisque, I had scallop/pork belly skewers and my wife steak tar-tar and each had venison osso bucco for our main course. We had bananas foster bread pudding and key lime pie for dessert. We enjoyed all of the dishes. The server was very efficient and always there when we needed her.

This is the third time I've enjoyed dinner here; I keep coming back because it's a great place for a wonderful dinner. This time, however, there was a real surprise! I had a dish I've never had before: venison ossobuco - it was delicious! I'll be back!

Second time to this small, quaint restaurant. BYOB, which we like. The food was excellent, except for an appetizer which did not have all of the ingredients. We didn't realize this at first, and later suspected that was the reason for the flavor not being quite what it should have been. Everything else was perfectly cooked and presented. The waitress was interested in hearing feedback and very attentive. Will definitely be back!

Amani’s was firing on all cylinders tonight. Service was great and friendly. We had several appetizers : spring rolls, meatballs, and pork belly. The meatballs were amazing. Main courses included the steak special and short rib bolognese. They did a great job on our daughters special order as she is a picky eater. Again, all delicious. We finished with cheesecake, the chocolate tart, and bread pudding as it was a birthday dinner. Of course some leftovers for tomorrow as the portions are generous. As always, a great meal!

Tried their smoked steak...reminded me of a very nice chunk of beef jerky. Everything else was awesome. Wife had duck, super good, and dessert was heavenly. Service isn’t their “go to” but you aren’t supposed to rush such good food (except for that steak...ick).

Amani's is a neighborhood gem and if you don't live around here it's worth traveling to experience it. The Bourbon and Bacon dinner is one of our absolute favorites!! It's unique and beautifully served and delicious - perfectly paired with a bourbon drink that compliments the innovative bacon foods. We brought neighbors this year and had a wonderful evening. Highly recommended unless you take up all the reservations in which case we will suggest they expand this across a few nights or make them more frequent. BTW the Resurgence Bourbon is also a real treat and not so far away...

Food quality was top notch. Our server Rick was very knowledgeable and polished. I would go her any time it was that special. My wife thought the salmon entree was one of the best she ever ate.

I was expecting a great meal based on the restaurants rating of Best Restaurant of Chester County, and the menu sounds amazing. However, sadly the food was bland and was stacked with unnecessary filler vegetables. I won’t be going again.

My wife thought the crab cakes were a little too salty but still tasty. My chicken was excellent. Good timing, nice server, reasonable prices. Love byob. This place can be a little cold so I hung my scarf over my chair and that helped. We like going here a couple times a year. Consistent.
