We did not realize when we made reservations that it was trivia night and I was talking to my husband about how amazing it is that the food was so good that it made up for the fact that it was pretty loud. Cannot wait to go back there again!

For Easter evening, my parents, boyfriend, and I decided to try Ami’s due to the great reviews and central location. The service was excellent and the restaurant took thoughtful measures to make the dining area socially distanced and safe for COVID-19 regulations. The one downside was that our reservation wasn’t logged and we were no-shows on Open Table. I think everything was sorted out, though. Check out Ami’s!

Great selection of appetizers. I was disappointed in the entree selection There used to be quite a few more vegetarian entrees. I ended up with a dish that was basically pasta with some cheese on it.

Love the total dining experience at Amis, from the food selections, quality of food, presentation and wonderful staff! On this visit i had the half roasted chicken with the charred broccolini, absolutely delicious! My friend had the Bocatini pasta dish which she loved and we shared the donut holes for dessert! Yummy! Everything was perfect! Thank you!

One of the best restaurants I have been to - vegan, vegetarian, all meat/fish choices, freshest pasta, homemade bread! The vibe is so cool. Inviting staff and impeccable service! Ricotta doughnuts and fried artichokes were the BEST!

Food was great as well as our waitress and her service was on point. However, we sat outside on a freezing cold night and it took forever to get our heat lamp turned on after several requests and the music was not appropriate for dining.

Amis has a wonderful menu with vegetarian options and upscale choices. Our waiter was top notch, the cocktails were great, and our favorite chef, Jess, came out to say hello. You couldn’t ask for better service, a more warm and welcoming attitude, and a better place to meet with friends to feel save and well taken care of during COVID. We will be back!

Just went out to grab a quick bite. Outdoor dining is great there. They have tables in a huge hall and heaters to keep us warm. I’ll definitely go back. Our waiter was amazing. The food was good also. Great place for tapas. They know what what they’re doing.

Curing Covid it is difficult to give a review that is relevant to any time but now. But Amis made our evening simply a pleasure. It is a relaxing, welcoming restaurant. The food is truly delicious. The vibe is one of sincere attention. Our food came out a bit slowly but they had a trivia night to keep us busy. This was my first time there but I will go back often. It will no doubt be one of those "go-to" neighborhood places that always feels good. And it was open on a Monday night! Try to find that in any Fairfield County town.
