We waited 2 hours for our food, they kept offering us drinks, no appetizers and all the food tasted the same.

I had my first date with my partner here in 2017. So today was her 11th sobriety anniversary and we celebrated here. The young waitress that assisted us was a dream. She didn’t overcrowd our space, she came around always right on time. When asked about an item she definitely gave an honest answer. The food was great my partner ordered the NY Steak w/mashed potatoes and mixed steamed vegetables. I ordered the whole red snapper with jollop rice with 3 large shrimps. Thanks for helping me make her day extra special!!

Amarachi was amazing, we will definitely be coming back. My husband and I came for happy hour to kick off his birthday celebration. We were treated with nothing but love and given shots on the house. Our server Tia was amazing. Great ambiance and customer service. We will def return on the weekend to enjoy the DJ.

We had an amazing experience at Amarachi. Wow! Our server was David, and he greeted us as soon as we were seated. He took our orders, and to my surprise, the food came out quickly. The food and drinks were excellent. But what struck me the most about the experience at Amarachi was that I felt I was at a family function. Although David was our server, everyone who worked there approached our table to see if everything was okay with genuine care and kindness. Even the general manager checked in on us. Everyone had a great attitude and treated us like family. Needless to say, the customer service at Amarachi far surpassed any restaurant I’ve been to.

Good: Host was accommodating, moved tables around to seat our party outside. Waitress was attentive for drinks and taking our orders. Food was excellent.
Could be better: Food took a long time to arrive, leaving the kids in our party feeling very hungry. Food arrived in three or four different waves, two or three dishes together every ten or fifteen minutes, so many people were done eating while others waited over an hour. It was a hot evening but the water sat empty until I took the carafes inside to request a refill. Some orders didn't make it onto the bill, wasn't served. Some other food never arrived, but we were billed for it anyway.

Poor service. Wait staff was pleasant but bad at communicating. Food never came out together. My wife’s steak was well done and She asked for medium. Spinach was so salty it was inedible. Me and son ordered oxtails and got more sauce than meat and it was room temperature not hot.

Booked a table through Open Table last minute today. I was seated prominently which was great. We got drinks. However, the food came an HOUR LATER. We didn't even want to do hookah anymore after eating. The wings were delicious but the rice wasn't cooked. I'm not coming back. Quality service and quality food is very important.

We went for my brothers graduation. If you go fri or sat night def would leave the kids home. They took a long time to bring out the food and they brought the food out periodically. But they said alot of ppl called out. The waitresses were nice though. And they played good music. I would definitely go back but maybe for a birthday or just to hang with friends. Not for family dinner on the weekend.

Great food, great ambiance, and people there are just soooooo friendly! We will definitely go back. They also have a few vegetarian options are super delicious. If you like African food and you’re vegetarian it’s a nice spot.

Food is amazing as always. The ambiance needs updating. Some tables had cloths and some didn’t. The African art were blahhhhh and the pictures on the wall were leaning. The energy of the restaurant needs a lot of work. Set the music at the right volume and leave it at that volume. The waitresses were tired and ready to go home.

We waited an hour to be seated and for someone to take our order. The food was cold, undercooked and bland. The employees either do nothing or hide in the back to avoid customers. When I asked for the check my waitress created her own prices aside for the menu so I had to bring that up so I can't get charged the actual prices on the menu. The owner needs better control of their employees because it looks like they are running it themselves.

Food was lack-luster compared to the first time I visited this restaurant over the summer. Also food was served with wilted brown lettuce and drinks were weak.

Love this place! Have been going since high school and always delivers with good food, vibes, and music. Wish they could have performances too but given COVID times can't expect much anymore. Our server MJ was so kind and even ended up giving me a free drink. Happy to dine at black owned businesses and this one hasn't dimmed in quality even amidst the pandemic.

This place is a 5! Right from check in with covid measures to hand sanitizers at entry /on table, social distancing, masked servers to the space. Food is delectable and great value for $$. What a gem! Truly enjoyable experience of Afro cuisine! The chicken coconut curry was amazing.

Showed up for a 7pm reservation. No indoor seating was available. Decided to take food to go instead and placed a takeout order. Hostess who took the order had a very poor attitude and was openly mocking her manager in front of guests. Was told it would take 30 minutes. Left and came back in 30 minutes. Food was not ready. Was told it was going to be another 15 minutes. Left and came back in 15 minutes. Food was not ready. Was told it would be another 15 minutes. Instead of waiting we asked for a refund. Was told they could not put it back on the card. Was given cash back instead, but was shorted $0.02. Overall restaurant seems really unorganized with many employees walking and standing around doing nothing.

Seated outside due to covid but the atmosphere was very nice. Great music. The service was good considering it was crowded and there was a private event. The food was ok, I had high expectations.

My friends and I had an amazing time at Amarachi! The server (and bartender) MJ made amazing recommendations and the drink she made (the Yardie) was delicious! We loved the wing platter and all of our entrees, particularly the jerk chicken and plantains and fried chicken and Mac and cheese!
