The food, the service, all of it was fantastic! We had the whipped feta to start, I had the scallops, my friend the quinoa crusted duck. We finished off with the olive oil cake. Stunning food all round!
The staff were lovely. Unfortunately the overall experience was not as wonderful as we were expecting. I think we’ll need to go back and try again. We were not familiar with the menu and the night was a bit cold and dreary.
The food is amazing
The food is truly special. I never order pasta and
I had the seafood one. Homemade noodles and perfect amount of chopped up seafood. The dips with flatbread were tasty. Great place with live music. Loved every minute. And the olive oil cake! 😘
Good delicious ! Service great ! Great nyc ambiance
The good was excessively salty and very overpriced.
Excellent place! Great food and atmosphere - service is attentive.
Food was all on the saltier side..even w/ my request to have less salt. Scallops & Halibut has tasty sauce & accompaniments but were overdone.
Good excellent. Very well prepared. Menu interesting. Pretty loud in a small place.
Very very good food but ridiculously mis-priced. Will not be going back; there are too many better options.
I had a very disappointing evening at Amali. The waiters did not wear masks and stood very close to the table. They explained they are vaccinated but I would've felt more comfortable if they wore masks. The service was extremely slow and the entrees arrived an hour and a half after ordering. We sat for a 730pm reservation and didn't finish until almost 10pm. Given the high price point at Amali, I expected a better dining experience.
Excellent food and service. The halibut and the hummus were outstanding.
Outstanding as always. Food, service and setting all great.
The best branzino I ever ate!
Delicious appetizers and we loved the grilled bread with the feta. We were very disappointed with the cocktails. Fun names and descriptions but they were extremely weak and had 75% ice!
I had the tagliatelle which was just ok, and my partner had the duck which was very good, especially the sauce.
If you like duck, you have to order the quinoa crusted duck. It's possibly the best duck I've ever had. I can't wait to go back and have it again. The autumn squash was also amazing.
Good food, great service, what else is there to say.
the food was great!
cocktails were really good too.
The food is innovative and delicious, a wonderful take on Mediterranean cuisine. The service is really great and friendly and the ambience is welcoming and quaint. A neighborhood gem, and one I highly recommend.
Food is unusual, interesting and good. Service is very good. Outdoor dining venue needs an upgrade.
The chef did not have time for the chef tasting menu, which we booed. So we ordered off the regular menu. We were looking forward to it
Had a delightful dinner outside. Service was good snd food unusual and delicious
FOOD WAS DELICIOUS
Terrible food - came back cold several times
The food was delicious, the outdoor space was lovely and inside is inviting
The food and ambiance is amazing
The food and service is great, but with no ambiance... If you wanna eat well, Amali is a good option. but if you wanna eat well and have a great experience, mb you can find better options
Best bronzino I’ve ever had!
Went the night there was a live band. The music was great but like all live bands in a small area, not great for conversation.
Great service. Relax atmosphere and food is perfectly executed. Would recommend wholeheartedly!
Food was fabulous. Service was great by our server however an error was made with the wine order. We ordered the Spanish La Rioja 2012 but we were served the La Rioja 2011. One could argue the server made a mistake or we as guest didn’t look at the bottle carefully when presented by server to have corrected the server’s error to bring us the correct bottle of La Rioja. Nevertheless, I was not too happy with the mistake when I was presented the bill but I didn’t feel the need to create a scene to dispute the bill. So I paid the bill with a built in 18% administration fee (never encountered such a fee before) and gave a small cash tip to the server. This experience taught us a lesson, always look at the bottle carefully to make sure it’s the correct order to avoid surprise with the bill.
I'm glad that the food was great. Regarding the wine issue - our current La Rioja Alta selections include a 2011 '904' at $145 and a 2014 'Gran Reserve' at $95 (we don't currently offer a Rioja 2012). We do present the wine to minimize any miscommunication of what is ordered (red wines are also left on the table). That being said, we don't want you to feel badly - I'd be happy to offer the price difference (if there is one) as a future credit. Please email us: captain@amalinyc(dotcom).
Varried menu. Lots of good stuff. Even having appetizers instead of a main would be satisfying
Hit and miss dishes. Some were great others bland. Other than the pasta, felt like the food needed more flavor. Perhaps use more olive oil?
Btw- inedible olive oil cake. Very hard dense.
The best Mediterranean food in a long time
The tomato hummus was amazing
Olive oil was so so good
Tried Both vegetarian and fish options FANTASTIC!
Great wine selection
Chocolate cake not the best but strawberries and cream was phenomenal !
Loved the staff! So friendly and kind! Will definitely return
Great scallops, terrific wine list! Great date!
Excellent service. We attended for my friend’s birthday/promotion and the restaurant was very accommodating and made us feel special!
The food was great and the service staff was wonderful.
It was delicious
