While the actual food @ Amali was superb, there were significant drawbacks in terms of the noise level and service. Upon first entering, the background music was hard rock (Led Zeppelin, etc.), which was completely incongruous in terms of the refined ambience. My bigger concern, however, is that upon requesting separate/individual checks, our waiter was extremely rude & refused to comply. He then created a great deal of confusion by creating a singular check, and later reverted to creating individual checks after all. The entire process took more than an hour, which my guests and I certainly did not appreciate. I empathize with restaurants' economic struggles during the pandemic, but this was completely unnecessary and downright ridiculous.

The heater worked poorly.
When I wanted a green veg instead of potatoes with my chicken, I as told there was only a small portion of potatoes. So I said OK. Half the plate was potatoes. I was annoyed - and very cold.

I went there for my birthday celebration. The ambience and food were amazing. But most of all, the staff was so great, cheerful and pleasant, I’d go back just for that reason. There were two other birthday parties at the restaurant that night and the servers bring out complimentary shots for all guests at the celebrating table.

Chef's tasting for 2, for a special birthday celebration was a disaster. First it was so cold and they did not even make a proper seating arrangement outdoors. Secondly, the food was so under-par, I was embarrassed at making this reservation. Quite a way to upsell somethere that isn't. NOT recommended !!!

The restaurant is outstanding. They are working with what they have, which is a mayor too lazy, or too stupid to recognize that dining indoors with a brand new ventilation system is far less risky than sitting outside with propane burning space heaters; pedestrians continuously walking by unmasked diners; and air circulation based on Mother Nature.

Open up indoor dining, you mope.

But again, no complaints about Amali. Staff was courteous and attentive. Food was exception. Sommelier was knowledgable.

Just let us sit inside when it's 35 degrees out, De Blasio, you dope.

Dining in the time of Covid, you look first for heaters and THEN check the menu. Thank heavens Amali had the heaters, because I would have hated to miss this experience! From the killer hot mulled wine to the creamy but crispy sunchoke app, and the supremely juicy chicken to the honeyed cauliflower side, almost everything was top-notch. One quibble: my daughter's shakshuka featured an egg that wasn't poached so much as hard-boiled. And the prices are not low. But totally worth it. I'll be back, and this time I'll bring guests who want to try out some of the interesting Greek wines on their list!
