Overall we had a good experience. The food was delicious! Our waiter server was great but I think quite busy because service was on the slower pace. We were there for brunch and there were a few families with young children, which took away from the experience.

We expected much more from this place especially being attached to the wonderful Terrain whom has great food good service, and meets the expectations attached to the price.
The service was fast and attentive but in a way where they were just spinning the wheel, filling waters and getting the check, but zero smile, eye contact or even a ‘how is everything’. It was more of a, let’s see how quickly we can move on to the next customer sort of service experience.
The food for the price tag was disappointing. Completely tasteless greens underneath semi cooked scallops and an over dressed salad were the items I ordered.
Won’t be going back unfortunately. The ambiance was good though :)

The food was good but the service was terrible. It wasn’t the waitress’s fault. Something must have occurred in the kitchen because everyone was complaining.

we loved Amis, it was one of our favorite places. But the recent changes, new chef? have made us missing what Amis used to be. The open dining room feels cold. The menu lost some of its best features and some of the new dishes aren't great. The desert menu was very disappointing. We tried the goat cheese arancini, felt like we ate a ball of sawdust! The once amazing crispy brussel sprouts were over salted. My favorite rigatoni bolognense was still delicious but a little off. And a once crowded restaurant was very quiet. So sad.

Great dining experience. We went for lunch and for the first 40 minutes had the entire place to ourselves . The menu offered a little bit of everything and the food was delicious! Can't wait to go back for dinner!

We have dined at Amis Trattoria many times. My chief complaint is that they rush you out of the restaurant even when it is not that full. We were done dining in less than an hour. The White Bean Soup was on the watery side. You usually think of bean soup as being hearty. The Swordfish was absolutely delicious though. My Partner is Vegan and there was a starter and entree option for him. Drinks and wine are well poured. As I said, we go often but it's not as good as the closed Amis that was in Philadelphia.

Love Amis but they have made a lot of changes. Taking away the partitions in the dining room has made it louder and less intimate. They have also gotten rods of some of the best menu items including the potatoes, the crushed tomato pizza, and the garden salad. And no Italian beers at this Italian restaurant. Not as excited to go back.

Our family of 8 had a reservation to celebrate a special birthday. Our table was in the bar area, not the dining room, we sat and waited a very long time (45 mins) for someone to take our drink order and by that time we were starving and ordered our apps. After another very long wait most of our drinks arrived except for the b day girls which took about another 30 minutes to arrive. (They apologized and comped the b day girls drink.) Our apps arrived around the same time and finally we ordered our entrees (our menus still sitting on the table when our apps arrived). We waited at least another 45 minutes for our food to arrive. My sons chicken was so overcooked and dry he could barely swallow it. All our entrees were served on very hot plates as if they sat under the heat light for a very long time. Pasta was tasty but dry on top again as if it sat under the heat lamps. By this time the b day girl who just got over the flu was exhausted and needed to go home after our 3 hour dinner experience and we left without getting dessert. Nobody ever apologized for the wait time other than the cocktail. I don’t kno if they were short staffed our what the problem was but it was one of my worst dining experiences ever. I’ve been to Amis numerous times in the city and to this location one other time and every other visit has been wonderful.

Service was stellar to start the night and took a turn for the worse when a neighboring table arrived and became pretty high maintenance. Squeaky wheel gets the oil I suppose. Unfortunately we're not complainers so ended up with the short end of the stick. Will give another try before giving up.

Love this local place, but the food has not been very good lately. New chef maybe? We will try again and hope other locals will also, because it is a well located spot, but many other alternatives available nearby, so they need to fix the kitchen.

The food and ambience were very good. However the service was extremely slow(over 20 mins to be served soup?) and it was obvious that the restaurant was very understaffed.

Food was pretty good but the seasoning was under/over on some dishes. Many dishes that should have had a sauce involved (octopus app, cod) were on the dry side. They must dislike sauces...

server kept completely forgetting about us and leaving us hanging for long periods of time.

Innovative Italian. Pizzas are different from pizzerias, more like Italy. Ginger bread eggnog ice cream sandwhiches with candied ginger in chocolate sauce: each bite tasted like Christmas.

Used to go to the Amis in center city and I was very disappointed to find the 3 best items on the menu had been removed at the Devon location. No beef cheeks, no pork chop, no tiramisu for dessert, and the bucatini was overcooked. Not a lot of ambiance, very impersonal. Probably wouldn’t go back...

Server was accommodating to one of our party who was a 'picky' vegetable eater. I ordered a white bean soup which was good but not quite warm enough. My swordfish was over cooked and had more black pepper on it than I have ever experienced. ( a slip of the hand ? ) all in all not a bad meal, but not a great one either.

It is a beautiful restaurant but I felt the food was just okay! We had Brussels sprouts and then two different pastas and they were a bit bland and unremarkable. Not bad, just not as delicious as the wonderful meal we had there last December! I felt the menu wasn’t as enticing as maybe it has been in visits past. It isn’t that we’d never go back, but won’t be rushing there anytime soon! Sorry!

Bar table seating was very loud. Service was attentive and adequate. Excellent options for wines by the glass. Kitchen got bogged down; major slowdown between first and second course. Enjoyed the octopus but Sal’s meatballs were just ordinary. Cod was a good choice for entree but the mussels, while accompanied by a lot of toasted (but cold) bread, were very dry and devoid of anything to dip into. Pound cake with pistachio ice cream was a good choice for dessert. Hard to justify the high prices for an ordinary experience.

Very Disappointed! This was our first time at Amis and I was really looking forward to it. We ordered the baked fontina as a starter. I found that to be over powered by the fig Jam. It was just ok. My dinner was actually Not bad . I had the Caesar salad and the Cacio e Pepe both good. My husband and friend ordered the scallops. This 30 dollar entree had only 3 scallops($10 per scallop) , they were very salty and the mushroom sauce was not tasty. My other friend had the rigatoni. She found that dish to be bland and did not wish to take home. She probably had more than half left.
We passed on the dessert. Unfortunately, this place was a miss for us.

We had horrible service from the moment we sat down . No one brought us menus, we had to ask several times for items with no apology, just a bad attitude. I don’t think
I will ever go back.
