    It was a night with my husband. We had a reservation for 10:30pm, but they only had a table available 20 minutes later. They didn’t apologize, or gave any thoughts about it. Our server was very helpful and attentive. The food very tasty. The music was fidget! Very, very, very loud! Terrible! Besides all that, the food was really good.

    Limited menu options Food is not exceptional and on the pricey side for the portions. You pay for the vibe and ambiance more than the food.

    Great food! Everything we ordered was delicious but especially the fattoush salad and beef tenderloin skewer. And the Amal Manhattan was really, really good. Low key, friendly, helpful service was just the way we like it. Never felt rushed to order. Lovely decor too.

    The only reason I gave the service a 4 is because the server seemed overwhelmed. Probably a staffing issue. But things took a little longer to get to our table. Otherwise the atmosphere, quality of food and everything in general was wonderful.

    The food, ambience, service, decor...everything was incredible! We went for girls night and had such a wonderful time. It has been a long time since we have experienced great service in the city - so thank you, Amal. Highly recommend the drink Phoenician Connection, and the truffle rakakat was delicious!

    Absolutely love Amal & how beautiful the venue is. The food is delicious, not to mention, extremely affordable! favourite cocktail is the one with passion fruit & a pretty orchid. I highly recommend the garlic dip & beef kefta. It’s in the heart of Yorkville and close to all shopping stores.

    The ambiance, the vibe of the restaurant is amazing.. High class fine dine restaurant. The food was good just the beef bacon was “a bit” hard to cut off but still well cooked. The music was loud but I believe that is okay because the place is very busy. The server was nice and kept a check on us. Definitely recommended
