    My final meal, on the final day of operations. It's been a great run for me... The food was a combination of Beast of Amis and menu items. Everything was delicious, the service was terrific. It was a bittersweet ending to a marvelous crew of people, that served up great memories and food.

    Amis is never a disappointment. We went as a group for a night cap and deserts. We sat at the bar and had a lovely time chatting with the bartender and sharing deserts. She could tell there was a chef amongst us and made sure we enjoyed ourselves.

    I will never return to this restaurant despite good food and location. The sound level was literally deafening. I could not hear my dinner partner (nor he me). We spent the meal screaming at each other and my ears rang for much of the following day. There ought to be law against noise at decibel levels such as these.

    It was not up to the standards set by the Vetri Organization. No serving pieces were provided with the platters and all food ordered, appetizers, pasta and entry, were delivered to the table at once. Definitely a different restaurant from the Vetri days. It was clearly a step down and is now nothing more than an average restaurant, not one that I would recommend or long to go to again.

    So anxious to try this restaurant. Two foodies got together for a reunion celebration. We shared an appetizer and had to send it back. The grilled octopus was too chewy to eat and the potatoes were just about tasteless. Pasta entrees were very good, although the lamb ragu was on the greasy side. Enjoyed an outstanding martini and a glass of wine each.......but found the drink prices very expensive.

    The food I had there was overpriced and awful. I ordered a crispy duck at medium rare. It came out raw and very salty. The sides were unbearably bitter. And, it costs 34 bucks!!

    We love Amis! Such a great neighborhood place for excellent food. Always a delicious meal and the service is top notch. We especially love sitting at the counter ; it's better for conversation, plus we have a great view of the kitchen. We are truly going to miss this place! Go now, while you can!

    Great drinks, the house punch is awesome. Pastas and dinners were light for the price. Portions were closer to tapas style. Service was great and quality of the meal was yummy. Desserts were good too, one of us really enjoyed the rice pudding! Ambiance was pleasant and comfortable.

    The crab lasagnette was very dry and almost burnt. The rest of the food was pretty standard - nothing remarkable. There are better Italian food options in Philadelphia

    Average food. Too much a big deal made about the plancha. If the plancha is so wonderful then why did my tilefish come out with skin the consistency of rubber? The meatball and the cauliflower apps were excellent.

    Wait staff was accommodating and attentive to a single female diner -- not always the case in restaurants! -- and helpful in choosing the wine. Crab appetizer and sea bass entree were lovely, with the fish cooked just right. Dessert selection was a little more than I wanted -- wish they had had a sorbet, my only suggestion. But the most memorable part came as I was preparing to leave. I had been at a college reunion, and I realized one of the people seated at the next table was also in my class. When she recognized me, they invited me to join in, and the staff was thoroughly accommodating in my staying at my table through their dinner, even though I wasn't ordering more. A thoroughly positive experience!!

    First time dining here. Very convenient to the Kimmel Center waitress suggested special which was soft shells. Excellent. Ambiance very pleasant. Noise level is good, easy to carry on a conversation. Great music in background. Good for aging boomers like us and for younger people. We would definitely go back.
