Brunch - menu does not properly reflect ingredients. Asked for dairy free, yet the chicken Paillard had butter in the sauce. The menu mentioned vinegrete sauce

Slow service, mediocre food, lukewarm temperatures. I will say the waitstaff was very friendly, though.

The food at Amis was wonderful! My husband and I tried the restaurant for the first time and it is now under new management. We each had the Restaurant Week menu and it was the perfect introduction to the quality of food presented at Amis. Great atmosphere, pleasant and efficient servers. The only thing I would change is the choice of music.

Thanks for a great time. We'll be back!

Food Mediocre at that. I came when they first opened and I thought it was awful so I thought I would come back and give them another try two years later. The wait staff was lovely but very very slow! It’s my pet peeve when I need to wave down a waiter for something

Very pleasant sitting in the courtyard on a beautiful day. Service was very prompt, courteous and not pushy. Wines bt the glass list was quite good and varied in price.

Delighted with Amis! Dinner was excellent but dessert is not to be missed. We had the rice pudding with cherry fig sauce and pistachios - unique and delicious! Dining outside made a lovely evening perfect.

Great location in the heart of revitalized downtown Westport. Food, service and ambiance are all very good to excellent. Tables are a little too close. If you are looking to have a private/intimate conversation I would not recommend Amis. Otherwise one of my favorites!

When you walk in and see a gloved chef (in the middle of prep) shoving food into his mouth.. it’s not a good first impression. ‘One for the bowl! One for me!’.

The restaurant was empty which was odd for a Saturday brunch.. however took about 10 minutes for the 3 waitresses to stop talking & seat us.

Food & cocktails were less than ordinary.

Goes without saying, we won’t be dining there again

As always we enjoyed our lunch. My friend and I shared the meat and ricotta meatballs and each had a salad. She had the kale salad and I had the chopped salad. They were both delicious. I was not expecting the blue cheese in the chopped salad and would have preferred more tomatoes instead, given the season.

We were excited to try it, but the food came up short. We ate what we ordered. But it just wasn’t anything that makes us excited to go back to eat there. That said, the atmosphere is nice. It’s a really nice space.

Small menu but, very good food. Home made pastas , fresh ingredients, make for great dishes. My fusilli with pancetta and parmigiana was outstanding. We will be back.

The service was very good. We sat near the bar. The noise level was acceptable. It was possible to have a conversation; though there was no band or singer that night.
The ambiance was designed for a younger crowd, but there were older folks and couples too.
The appetizer was over cooked, and blackened; also, it probably waited to be picked up. they offered to comp me on it, but I declined.
The main course was very good; it was also served hot, which I appreciated.
Bread and oil were placed on the table before the meal, along with gratis sparkling water or flat water.
The meal, along with two glasses of wine and one hard drink, with tip came to ~ $ 120.00.
about $ 60/person, more or less. if you are a teetotaler, and only tip at 15%, you may escape with a lower charge.
I would go back.

While it's nowhere near as good as it could be, Amis seems to be on the upswing of late. Stay away from the pedestrian pasta courses, and you can have a nice meal here.

Our reservation was at 8. They sat us at 8:45. They did give us some free appetizers because we waited so long and the service was friendly. Food was mediocre at best. Pasta was dry and not cooked. Too many other good restaurants in the area, I would never go here again!

We often go to Amis and really love the food and the ambiance however on this night it was way too noisy!!! The noise level really impacted our dining experience. Then a singer set up directly behind our table and then we really decided we had to leave. Recommend they don’t start the singer til after the peak dinner period,
If at all because there is not that much room for it or perhaps move the singer outdoors.

First course (eggplant chips) very good as was our main course. However, the desserts were poor. The cannolis looked good but the ricotta filling was tasteless. The sundae had a light drizzle of chocolate sauce, grainy gelato. Room for improvement

A few choices sold out which was irritating but otherwise another great meal at Amis. Sitting in the bar area with the windows open on a warm night is hard to beat
