    Casual dinner with family turned into something more special at Mes Amis. My wife and I enjoyed a bottle of wine and the plater for two, meanwhile my teenage sons enjoyed their chicken kabobs! We ate nearly all the delicious food. Will come back.

    This restaurant is a hidden gem! It was our first time visiting for my husbands birthday and we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely amazing delicious and fresh! We ordered the Journey for two with the filet mignon chicken ground beef and lamb chops and I order the falafel plate it was the best falafels I ever had. We absolutely loved the desserts too! Will definitely be going back and telling our family and friends about this gem!

    We had a great birthday dinner here with a party of 11! Guests said they felt transported because of the cozy ambience and decor. Everyone enjoyed the flavors and variety of appetizers and main entrees as we ordered “The Journey” which was a course meal selected by the chef. Everything was delicious! The lamb chops were prepared perfectly! Overall, we enjoyed a wonderful meal and great service! Perfect romantic spot for a date night or fun, festive place for a larger party!

    We waited an hour for our entrees which never came, except a side salad that was excellent (to put it into perspective, all I ordered was a salad eith falafel). We had to flag wait staff down for refills of water and it was obvious the chef and the wait staff were arguing. They did end up comping my glass of wine and my partner's side salad. We went across the street and enjoyed dinner and drinks in half the time it took for us to wait for nothing at Mes Amis.

    Our first trip to a Lebanese restaurant and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and the service exceptional. We had the chef’s choice for two, not being very familiar with Lebanese cuisine. 3 appetizers picked by the chef. Hummus, eggplant dip with flatbread and some kind of fried pies stuffed with meat, walnuts and spices. Main course included filet mignon, grilled chicken and kafka, a ground meatball with middle eastern spices along with grilled veggies and rice. Dessert was included. A sampling of baklava, cheesecakes and seriously chocolate cake. All in all a delicious feast!

    What an amazing restaurant. Sammy, the chef, was so into the plating and preparation of the dishes, it was inspiring to watch him live his passion. The food was delivered hot. The waitress and busboy were amazing, (and the waitress is a beautiful young lady, very nice to look at😌, hope she felt the same about me🏄) Excellent food. Beautiful ambiance. 10/10 will return again😊

    Celebrated 36 years of marriage tonight at this local gem. Seating is by reservation only in this charming , colorful and cozy oasis. The journey for two was delicious and a tremendous value with a sampling of3 appetizers, flatbread, 3 entrees and a delicious bite sized trio of desserts. The bottle prices for wine are quite reasonable and we enjoyed a gold medal winning Red blend . Looking forward to returning and exploring other delicious dishes.

    This is a dining experience, which means good things come to those who wait. The food takes at some time to arrive after you order, but it is worth the wait. I recommend this place for the food quality and presentation, and the decor. The service is solid but not outstanding and the price is definitely $$$.

    The food at Mes Ami is simply outstanding. Whether it is an appetizer or an entree (I strongly prefer the lamb chops) or a dessert (the baklava is my favorite), it is delicious. Sammy always does an excellent job with the meal and the staff is friendly and attentive. Put Mes Ami on your "must try" list!

    Don’t go there if you’re a person of color, as soon as we walked in, the girl/waiter/server whatever she was asked me “yes what do you want, what can I do for you?” I said to her good evening, we’d like to eat here, I looked around to make sure I was in a restaurant because I was confused with the kind of questions she was asking us. Then she said ehn ehn, how can I help you, “do you have a reservation”accompanied with a mean look, standing in front of us (myself and my 2 middle school children) like a guard, I said yes, and I gave her my name. We sat down and after few minutes, one older gentleman came and said “let me help you move the seats around for more space to make you comfortable” I asked him if we can move to the seat in front of where we were sitting, he responded that he’s not in charge of seating arrangements, at around 5mins later, our waiter (same girl who checked us in and sat us previously) came and moved us to the seat I requested and it was resolved. We ordered our food, everything appeared to go smoothly from there on. After the meal, she came back and asked “how did you find this place” usually this is not uncommon for small restaurants when they’re “collecting data for marketing purpose” but the way she was forceful made me again wondered what the problem was. I said to her “OpenTable.” And she gestured her head “ok.” Then the bill came, it was fine, we spent $157.39, I contemplated not tipping her because of her attitude, but my conscious told me to not reward evil with evil, I debated it in my head for good 3mins, wondering if I should or shouldn’t, at last I gave $165, just $8 which I didn’t feel good about, however, the treatment she gave us was hurtful, I couldn’t reconciled that with giving her what I’d normally give, round up to $200. Be kind to all 🙏🏾
