It was better than I remembered it. The food was fabulous and much better than it had ever been with their new menu. We were kept waiting for our table. But, the server (or manager?) more than made up for it with the eggplant small plate as a token of our wait) It was heavenly. Since it was family style, I tasted everything the 4 of us ordered. Everything was better than the next. We remained seated for over 2 hours (no one was waiting for our table) It was a memorable night. I can’t wait to go back!

First time here and impression was great.
Ambiance and food taste was very similar to once loved by us Buddakan in Philly. The same theme of Budda around the walls, spaciousness and taste in decorations and very unique flavors of food.
Had lunch ordering Miso soup, Bento box for two, Nectar Lo Main and deconstructed Meringue for dessert. The Soup and Lo Main were amazing and the other dishes were great. Probably wouldn't order the bento box again but only because of the price ($24 is a bit too much for 6 mostly vegetable dumplings and one roll cut in half, but if the price would be around $15, then why not : ) ). All the other dishes were well worth the price.
Speaking about service it was wonderful too. Our server Mimi was very nice,
professional, efficient and very friendly. Thank you Mimi for your warm attitude, now days it's just..."priceless".
We left this place in a very good mood, so needless to say we are coming back and soon

Managers making up for inexperience of waitstaff, eager and young. Service fine until cappuccinos--took about 20 minutes. Broken machine? All food was very delicious. Will go again but not on Saturday night.

What a find! Gluten Free menu-great! Good -delicious!! Wine pairing limited but trying to expand.
Ambiance was so nice outdoors with a garden feel.
Really nice date night pick! Quiet so you can talk.

I’ve been here many times but not since it reopened. I know everyone is suffering from lack of staff but wow. The service was really slow.
The Brussels sprout appetizer was very tasty but the pasta was dull, boring and watery. One of our party ordered an appetizer as her main and wanted it be served with the other dinners. Nope. It came almost right away. It sat there for the 30 minutes it took them to prepare 2 plates of pasta. We had to ask the waitress to take it back and bring a fresh one. It was all sort of ridiculous.
This was one of my favorite restaurants but I’ll wait a while before my next visit.

My husband and I and my two daughters and our son-in-law came for my birthday dinner. The waitress we had was new and someone was helping train her. We ordered our drinks but they took forever to come. Our appetizers came before our drinks did. The appetizers were amazing. We had the meatballs, the brussels sprouts and the crispy artichokes. The drinks when we finally got them, or also very good. We ordered a bottle of white wine, a Pinot Grigio and it was also wonderful. The entrées were a little lackluster. The pasta was somewhat undercooked but it wasn’t too bad. We all got our entrées except for my daughter. The waitress who is training forgot to write it down and they had to make it quite quickly so she wouldn’t be waiting too long. I will give it another chance definitely. The atmosphere is wonderful the scenery is beautiful.

Our first time back at Amis since the start of Covid closures/restrictions. While we enjoyed the family style serving approach it felt a little rushed and with 4 people at the small table there sometime wasn't enough room to navigate the plates. So my recommendation is that if you and your party are not ready for the food-consider sending it back to the kitchen to stay warm and have them bring it out when you are ready. or maybe ask for a bigger table. The food was outstanding, we really enjoyed as our appetizers the crispy brussel sprouts, scallops and twice fried artichoke really delicious! We also had the burrata heirloom tomato salad-yummy! Entrees we selected that were equally delicious were the brown butter chicken, the salmon and of course the Tonnarelli cacio e pepe pasta (to die for)! and our server Chris was fantastic! we will definitely be back.

It was just okay. We asked to celebrate my parents’ anniversary. Service was just flat out bad- they forgot bread, water was slow and we ended up dragging on dinner because the service was just so slow. It was a bummer. They did nothing special for the anniversary either, can’t say I was surprised ultimately. Food was just okay- not worth the money.

Our expectations were exceeded during our first meal at Amis in Devon. The service was attentive without being intrusive, yet very friendly. We loved that we were encouraged to order lots of different dishes to share - even being a twosome it worked out perfectly. Eggplant chips with honey were a delight, the broccoli rabe bruschetta I will try to make myself because it was so flavorful. We can't wait to go back.

Date night with hubby was great! The food and service were very good, especially the crispy eggplant chips! Although my husband’s entree did not come for quite a while ( we had finished appetizers, salad and my meal came), they were very apologetic and took the item off our bill. When mistakes happen, the way it’s handled is more important to me than the mistake itself. They got it right and made us feel like valued customers!!! I will definitely go back!

Host and server staff were accommodating. We were given a chickpea flour fried eggplant chips. The honey doused on top made it sweet. It would've been perfect without the honey. Tried their version of cacio e pepe and it wasn't bad. It wasn't quite al dente but the flavor was there. The pineapple margarita were great as well. Chocolate budino was excellent.

We were quite confused by the new menu/dining experience. There were things we wanted from Amis and items from Vetri. I was disappointed at the limited wine choices from Amis, but was unable to get wine from Vetri, even though I ordered food from there. The meal was good, but my husband and I were very confused by the whole new format!

We miss the “old” Ami’s, which had a more pleasant ambience, better food, more interesting & diverse menu. Thy have turned a destination restaurant into a neighborhood diner (with overhead TV’s and all).
Not the experience we seek out on a Friday or Sat night out. Probably will not go back.

The outdoor patio seating was perfect, the servers were excellent. The house special - a sidecar variation was highly touted but was unbalanced. The wine was good. We liked the artichokes, ahi tuna, the Caesar salad and the hangar steak. The straciatella bruschetta didn’t quite work. The octopus was ok and the pasta’s - cacio de pepe and bucatini were a bit too heavy.

Wonderful experience! The restaurant & surrounding area was beautiful. Would definitely recommend the grilled octopus appetizer & Aperol Spritz (our party also tried Mango Rum Punch & Bartender's Choice, which were both great as well). The menu had a lot of options that sounded great (including some for vegetarians/vegans) and everything seemed reasonably priced for the quality/portions. Our server (Rebecca) was so attentive and friendly, checking on us and giving updates when things were taking longer than expected. Overall, would definitely return & recommend!
