    Went with for friends after an event on rooftop and there was confusion about my wife being in a wheelchair. It was a big event to remove the chair from the table. Lamb was inedible. Very fatty. The entrees were brought out immediately after the appetizers and then we had them take it back. The server was very nice and tried to rectify situation. Just seems like the management is disorganized.

    They have achieved excellence in Lebanese food. They now have the best kafta in Miami and it is better than most places in Lebanon. I rated the service lower because we had to wait a long time to get seated and because we waited a long time between the cold appetizers and the rest of the meal. It was raining heavily that day, which impacted the seating and they compensated us for the wait.

    Let me begin by stating that I am usually a very positive person and dining out is a real enjoyment for me. As I walked on the sidewalk entering the restaurant, the music was blaring so load that I thought it was a live band. It turns out that it was the music accompanying the dancers that were there for entertainment. Thankfully the system seemed to be having some issues and the music was turned down quite a bit. We had a 9pm reservation and a hostess with an attitude told me that we had to wait for tables to clear. I can understand waiting 5, 10, even 15 minutes, but 40 minutes was unacceptable. I tried to cancel the reservation but was told I would be charged the reservation fee. Totally ridiculous. We were finally sat at 9:45pm along with 3 other tables that had arrived after us. The waiter was very pleasant and the food is very tasty. The place is beautiful, but the ambience is more of a club than a restaurant. There are places for everyone, but this is not one for me or for anyone wanting a nice meal where you are able to converse with your guests. It is a very “see and be seen” scene, and if that is your vibe, then this is your place.

    The nose level was so loud that it impossible to enjoy it. We kept asking to lower the Dj music and they refused until we talked to like 5 people. I understand having music louder for the Nelly dancing show but not a club scene loud music at 8 pm.

    Food was incredible, portion was great as well, but the service was extremely poor and very disappointing. We were two couples enjoying a nice dinner and our server kept trying to rush us to order .. something I do not like and do not appreciate specially with the cost of the food. My friends ordered the lamb chops, and they were not even cooked properly. When the server was approached to please take them away from the table, not even an apology was given and or a choice of new meal provided. My friends went ahead and had to ask her to place an order of a different main course.. again it doesn't matter how busy you are, customer service is crucial for someone's experience at a new restaurant. I may return but hope the service changes.

    The Garlic Dip and Amal Hummus were excellent ! The black cod was over cooked . It was a pricey dish, so I would expect better execution. Cocktails were fresh and yummy :).

    Service fell apart halfway through, had to cancel our coffee to get back to work-we told waiter it was a birthday and he never followed through. We were pressed for time and had to go to the entrance to get the check and go back to work. Disappointing

    Terrible experience. We made a reservation for 3 people for a table inside with a kids high chair. The hostess named Ana besides being rude and not being able to read at reservation notes right, first told us the table was outside, then that the reservation was made for a high table, and then that we had to seat outside. Was had to call the manager who did read the reservation right and new we had a reservation for a table inside with a high chair for the kid, still made us wait for an hour to get our table. Once we got the table an hour later the server informed us the kitchen was about to close in 10 minutes so we have to order fast. IT IS NOT A FAMILY FRIENDLY RESTAURANT. After waiting for an hour for our table and having to order in 5 minutes, the food was just OK. Nothing special. The only thing that made our experience a little better was the server who was really nice.

    I love Mediterranean cuisine and this was a huge disappointment. The food was really bland. The service was okay and the drinks tasted like juice. The Amal hummus was the only thing that was truly delicious. You would think at the price they’re charging, their food, service and drinks it would have blown our mind. I’ll take the daily bread over this place any given day. We’ll probably never be back.

    La música demasiado alta. No podía ni escuchar al camarero con los especiales por lo que ni tuve la opción de probarlos. Éramos 4 en la mesa y no se pudo ni hablar. La comida es muy rica pero demasiado cara. No volvería con amigos ya que no se puede mantener una conversación.

    Great place !! Food absolutely outstanding. Try the Muhammara, the Baba Ghanoush and the Tabouleh among others .. if you like Lebanese cuisine this is a MUST. The only thing that you guys (at Amal) have to work on a bit more is the wine list, I don’t mind spending +$ 20 or more for a single glass of wine but the wine should have been better. Thank you for having us.

    We had a minor issue with food that was quickly addressed by Mgr. We recommend that they give one of the assistant servers “Claudio” an opportunity be a main server. He was very congenial, attentive and seemed genuine in trying to ensure we enjoyed our visit. This level of restaurant was long over due for Coconut Grove, really for Miami. Congratulations! Well done! We will definitely return. Thank you! The Walters

    Sent message as we were running 15 minutes late. No reply from restaurant. Got there and were advised we had lost our table for 3 minutes… truly bad hostess and manager attitude. Finally given a sidewalk table next to parking lot entrance. First and last visit!! Food is good but service and attitude the worst.
