    Four of us met for lunch on a rainy winter afternoon. None of us had ea ten at Amali previously. Service was prompt and courteous, and the room is attractive and uncluttered. The menu includes nice salads, larger entrees, brunch foods, and sandwiches. I'll comment on the dish I had, which was a steak salad. The steak was of good quality, and it was cooked as I requested. It was served with a bitter green and a cheese that tasted a little like goat cheese. The dish was very good but would have been better with more flavor contrast. The bitter greens could have been more bitter, and a more flavorful vinaigrette would have made the dish more interesting. My nephew thought his burger was excellent, my wife enjoyed her salmon salad, and my brother enjoyed his olive oil pancakes. As a lunch spot near Bloomingdale's this is a fine choice, and I would happily visit again.

    The service and food was excellent! I had the sunchoke salad to start which was divine and then the Mediterranean chicken Caesar salad was delicious. I will definitely be back and will recommend to friends in the neighborhood.

    Nice ambiance and good service combined with excellent food make the experience worth the relatively high cost which includes an 18% service charge. Acoustics in back dining area are poor due to hard surfaces and box design!

    Food was very good as well as the service. The restaurant did not hand out reaurant week menus to any patrons. l heard everyone asking for the menu sitting around me and I had to ask for the menu too. There was a table of 3 older woman sitting with a mini mag flashlight to the right of me. I didn’t mind the bright light at first being they probably needed it to read the menus but they left the light on. The situation became more odd to me when 2 younger people joined them and the light was still being used, I was assuming at one point they would shut it off, it was distracting and rude. I felt like I was at a club the way the people were shining the light around. I ate through 2 courses before I ask the waiter to please ask them to stop shingling the light on me. I’m sure this is a one off experience but worth mentioning since I had to be the one to ask for something to be done. Be aware the restaurant adds an 18% service fee(I was at a table of 2).

    We had the most amazing New Years Eve dinner at Amali. They had 2 seatings and the 2nd one included a glass of champagne and a prix fixe that was perfect - a mezze platter, appetizer, pasta course, main and dessert. Every single course was delish -loved the dips and breads, had a beautiful sunchoke appetizer and my friends enjoyed their tuna starter. I had a short rib pasta that was so yummy and a filet mignon that was cooked perfectly. The music was festive and we had the best night. Love Amali!

    I am concerned about how they charge you service fee and expect gratuity. Careful when you get the bill…they trick you by removing service fee and then you give a tip and viola the service fee is tacked on the bill again when you see your credit card bill. Not crazy about this tactic, will not return even if food was decent.

    This is the second meal we've had at Amali. When we come in from CT to visit NYC and shop Madison Ave, it's such an easy walk and the food is absolutely amazing -authentic Greek, Italian, Spanish, French. I had the winter squash hummus as an app and loved it. Everyone of the staff is warm and gracious. Amali is a special place, I'm so happy we found it :)

    Great food and service. 18% “administrative fee” added to bill was confusing. Is this the tip? The visa receipt still left a space for “tip” to be added. These fees and >20% tip expectations are ruining the dining out experience.

    The good: Wonderful food and service. Generous portions beautifully seasoned and prepared. A very interesting wine list. A comfy and charming ambiance. The not so good: Exceedingly loud. Enough to affect the enjoyment of our dinner. Younger diners don’t seem to mind the cacophony, but at our table, we had trouble hearing each other.

    We ordered the Lunch Prix Fixe which allowed us to try the Spicy Feta, the soup of the day, the Chicken Caesar Salad and the Tagliatelle - AMAZING. Everything was DELICIOUS. Even the bread on the table was special. Our service was excellent. We will be back here for lunch the next time we come into the city for shopping. I loved everything about this restaurant and am so happy we found it.
