Incredibly disappointed by this place, was expecting to love it based on other reviews. The food was subpar, the chickpea croquettes were full of dough, the home made pasta was bland at best, the chicken was the only decent dish. The service was subpar, the wine was terrible, will not be returning.

We were a large group and we were overcharged, they did not explain clearly the rules for a large group nor they explained how many dishes they were serving us. I only saw 4 burratas though they charged 6 (and similar with others), they were not able to offer an explanation. I would not go back.

We had a late lunch of a meat and cheese platter with a delicious baratta salad. A glass of red each was consumed, followed by cappuccino, gelato, and a on the House small glass of 10 year old tawny Port! Our waiter was excellent!

The space is fine in a typical, dimly lit way. The menu choices are limited. The portions are small to medium. The bill was too big for a good but not very good dinner experience.

25 minutes wait although we had booked
Bad Smelly room (moisture)
Very slow service
Imposed menu because we were 11
We ended up with 120 dollars per person for very ordinary food although 5 of us were kids
Worst restaurant expérience ever in NYC
They promised some kind of compensation and never sent anything.

My group had our small holiday luncheon here and it was great starting from the food to the service. We were in the private area in the back that was beautifully set up and our server couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. All the dishes starting from the charcuterie/cheeses/dips to the spanish octopus plus the decadent deserts (Hazelnut cake). Highly recommend!

Uncertain if I'd recommend to friends. The food was delicious but the service was so poor it ruined the experience. We stood for 10 mins at 9PM with a reservation, staring at our empty table, then sat for another 10 mins without menus while servers and the hostess walked by multiple times. Once we got menus and a waiter, they acted like we barely existed. Had to flag them down for everything. Despite that, the food was great - highly recommend the octopus, the croquettes and the bolognese.

This is the third timeni went to amali, and i was unfortunately dissapointed. I went with a larger froup (in laws and parents) and were sit in the back room, which was a bit moisier and the ambiance wasnt as nice. The service was pretty bad. They were understaffed jn the back. It took 20 minutes to bring bread to the table. Durin dessert, the coffee was served ice cold. While the food was tasty,it was quite expensive for what it was.

Popped in for a quick lunch. My salad was over cooked and a strange blend of flavours, my partner's salad looked like an accident and she said I tasted unappetising. We ordered a side of broccoli which arrived burnt and hard. A very strange menu cooked poorly.

Small restaurants, noisy and not very great for special event. Food portions were tiny and over priced. Fish was over cooked and pasta was mediocre certainly not worth a $28 tag. Croquettes were delicious but that’s about the only standout. Waitress and service were very friendly. Certainly underperformed expectations.

Ambience was the key to this restaurant. The décor was interesting and the layout was nice with the back room.

The service was not on par for the prices they charged. Our waiter seemed nervous, raw and lacked the ability to communicate effectively with us.

The best part of the food was the garlic and potato appetizer. The main courses were bland and lacked character.

The wine list was large but expensive even for NY and it hit many areas in France and Italy.

The value of the experience was sub par.

This was our second time visiting Amali. We had heard about their great Sommelier "Frankie" who waives corkage for unusual wines that can't be purchased retail, so we returned and were excited to bring a nice wine from our cellar (a G. Roumier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru from 2005). However, Frankie was anything by friendly. I would say she was gruff, and after picking up our bottle to open it, returned to tell us that we would have to pay the $35 corkage because our wine didn't qualify. I am always very happy to pay corkage, but she was condescending and rude. (And she was wrong--I checked on Wine Searcher and this wine/vintage is not available anywhere in the US.) Because she was so rude, we didn't engage with her after that. She must have recognized that she'd been rude because at the end of our meal she came by to say that she'd decided to waive our corkage. That was too little too late. On the positive side, the food was excellent. Blistered shishitos were exactly as advertised and corn agnolotti was incredible. Also, as reviewed elsewhere, the bricked chicken was amazing, and my wife's halibut was perfectly prepared. I will still recommend the restaurant, but with reservations. Maybe Frankie just had a bad night, but her attitude really set a pall over our experience.

Amali was wonderful. The cocktails were delicious, the service friendly, the decor warm and inviting and cosy, and the food outstanding. We had between the 3 of us: drinks: red wine, white wine, a spicy tequila cocktail, a bourbon cocktail; apps: pita with a yummy spicy dip, cauliflower and potato fritters, roasted broccoli (awesome); entrees: a seafood bouillabaisse, a whole fish baked in salt (big enough for 2-3 people); desserts: strawberry shortcake, and some kind of chocolate icecream ball thing. The desserts were average, but everything else was excellent, especially the broccoli, the fish, and the spicy dip app. I wish our server had told us the salt fish which was marked as MP was $100 (we didn't think to ask) - and I guess it's ok if you're splitting it 2-3 ways but it was a bit of a sticker shock. That said, we had a great meal and I'd go back when I'm rich.

I have been to this place before since it is very well located for visits to the wonderful theatre at 59 East59th st. It is small and the food is very good. I usually have the chicken under the brick which is moist and tasty. It is not as crisp as it used to be and frankly I would like to see it more spiced withperhaps some hot pepper or mustard , more diavolo. But that is just my preference. Our waitress was lovely,friendly and eager to help. The hostess,on the other hand,was sullen, and unfriendly and tried to place us in the midst of four other tables when the others were empty.
