I had been wanting to try Amani ever since I first heard about this local BYOB celebrating local, seasonal ingredients. And it lived up to my expectations. Though my salad was not wholly inventive, it was tasty. I had the crab cakes for my main course and they wowed me -- they were not drab concoctions on a plate as some crab cakes can be -- they were relatively light and nicely presented. And our waiter was superb. I look forward to trying other dishes very soon.

My family and I went to this BYOB restaurant for the first time on a Saturday night. You can park for free in the public parking in the back after 5pm. There are several gluten free options on the menu but vegetarians may want to come prepared with ideas as to what to order. I suggest getting the cheese board to share. The best entrees appear to have been the duck and octopus. Several of us enjoyed the espresso creme brulee for dessert. The service was excellent.

Another delightful evening at Amani's. Brought friends with us to enjoy the delicious appetizers, salads and entrees. Unfortunately we were too full for one of their yummy desserts.

Excellent butternut squash soap, yet salad was and not nearly enough beats. Salmon was very good with good sides. The rib eye steak was correctly cooked at medium-rare yet had to much grisliness.
Service was very good and the restaurant was fairly quiet.

We went for Amani’s NYE prefix meal. We’ve been to Amani’s a few times and were impressed so we invited friends to join us.

Needless to say we were disappointed. For $85 pp, the food was sub par. Scallops were sandy, soup was bland, and I couldn’t even tell you our server’s name. I was very disappointed for such a steep price (plus tip).

Amani's offers great service with a friendly staff and nice table spacing. The glassware and silverware are nice appointments to the service. The food was good and nicely plated except for a miscue on the grilled chicken sandwich which was dry and totally overcooked. We enjoyed the lunch very much.

Not good. Seems like they try too hard to combine unusual ingredients. Kind of masks the real taste of the food. We also had a horrible table next to the hostess stand. Very dark and loud.

The food was excellent, the best we have had all year. I highly recommend this BYOB for its eclectic and delicious menu with beautiful presentation on the plate. They also have a martini list so bring your fav vodka or gin as well as wine. We went in the day before Xmas for “date night” so we knew it would be crowded and it was. Our only complaint is that we felt very rushed through all the courses by staff so that they could get to second seatings even though we asked to slow down when we got our bread and appetizers all at the same time as we received our drinks.

The food was very good. The service was professional. The ambience is fully satisfactory.
The prices are a little high. When we arrived for our reservation, the front desk staff was a little disinterested.
Individuals in our party of 6 had shrimp, halibut, black bass and steak. Each was very good. The cheese plate was OK.
The layout of the restaurant made our table for six a little cramped.
Overall, very good and we would recommend to friends.

First time here and overall a very good meal. Price was fair and appreciate the BYOB and available mixers ($3.50 per) if you bring liquor. Riccota cheese cake for an app was a highlight.
Butternut squash soup was tasty but too whipped and felt like I was eating air - tasty air but still air. Don't think this mentioned in the menu. Entrees of crab cakes and halibut were very good.
Waitress was nice and attentive. Tables were very close to one another which made it difficult getting to our table and felt like I was backing up to the guests at table behind me. Also, sat very close to the front door and everytime it was open we received a winter blast of cold air. Just don't sit up front at this time of year.
