Chef Bruce and his culinary team are firing on 8 cylinders with this one. He has an excellent skill set with vegetable dishes, you can build a gourmet experience around dishes like the roasted carrots and the cauliflower.

We had a delicious brunch to include shrimp and grits, homemade bagel with great lox and whipped cream cheese and French toast with a custard like center. The service was excellent without being overly solicitous. The interior and ambiance was lovely, though the music was initially too loud. They graciously turned down the volume. We plan to return.

Fabulous brunch out on the terrace. The pastry basket is a must-have to share with the table. Drinks were outstanding as well.

Had the 22oz ribeye & the pasta special for the night. My friend doesn’t eat pork & was able to add shrimp & lobster to the pasta for hardly no upcharge. The food was delicious, the cocktails were good too. Our waiter was very attentive & friendly.

Very nice and very clean. I was expecting the seating to be a little more private and intimate. The chairs and bench seat the cushions were wore out not very comfortable. Waiter and service was second to none very efficient and spot on all throughout our meal

Great to be able to return to Chez Ami. Food still good. Was very disappointed they lost their pastry chef since pandemic. Last time I was there for lunch I had the most excellent dessert. as it was a birthday lunch I was looking forward to having a dessert. But they had nothing to offer any longer. Not their fault there was a pandemic. With a suggestion to them would be to hire another pastry chef

I have been to Chez Ami previously with friends and was excited to bring family here for brunch. Unfortunately this visit was not so great. The food was fabulous, however, our server, Sarah, definitely needs more training. She said she would bring water, 10 minutes later she finally brought it. Took our drink orders which was just coffee and mimosas, about 10 minutes later brought the pitcher of mimosa with two very obvious dirty glasses! but no coffee! Waited for her to "be right back" but of course she wasn't. My husband took the dirty glasses to the hostess and requested clean glasses. Sarah finally came back with the coffee but no clean glasses! Someone else ended up bringing them. Then she came back again to finally take our brunch order. Not sure what her issue was, maybe she just doesn't want to work or perhaps her normal pace is VERY slow. Our meals were brought to the table by another server. It was quite disappointing to have such poor service in such a nice restaurant. I really felt like this server Sarah did not even deserve a full tip because everyone else was doing her work for her. So even though the food was great, the overall experience of dirty glasses and terrible service did not leave a good impression on my family, not sure they will want to come back again. (would have to be sure to request anyone other than Sarah). I would also recommend that some Vegan options be added to the Brunch menu, not one single item was Vegan. ~Darlene

We traveled from Rochester and this was our first time visiting this hotel and restaurant. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday. Other than having to wait about 15 minutes after our reservations, the entire ecoertfrom the service, food and drinks was exceptional. We will definitely be returning to celebrate other occasions as well as bringing other couples along with us!

Food was really good, if a bit expensive, though that's to be expected at a 5 star hotel. The service could have been better, though, as it wasn't that busy and it took a long time to get drinks, even at the bar.

The food and the service were fine. It was loud because we were seated on the porch. I would not have minded that but it was cold out there, even with the windows closed.
BUT the ambiance including the restoration of that wonderful building was terrific. We were there for brunch and I know I want to try it for dinner sometime soon

The menu was a bit limited and the pasta special I had was just ok and not nearly worth the price. The ambiance here was very nice though, and the cocktails from the bar were excellent, yet very pricey. We went up to the rooftop bar (Vue) afterwards and while they have the same cocktail menu with the same prices, the drinks were not as good as what we had at the restaurant.

We got the steak on special and it was very fatty, and my asparagus was charred a little too much. Otherwise, the service was good and the restaurant itself is beautiful.
