Wonderful food. I like to sit outside and watch the people walk by. Right downtown Traverse City on east side of town.

Never a bad meal. Never a bad server. Just a solid outstanding place to eat. Always enjoyable. The staff is always spot on when it comes to a suggestion on food or drinks.

Experience economy...engaging the five senses. Unfortunate that the moment we walked in the door of Amical we were displeased. We made our RSVP in person at 11 am 3/7/15 for dinner at 8 pm on same day. We came 30 min early to savor the experience of Amical from the wait at the bar only to find out the hostess... More

I have never been here or have French cuisine before but I enjoyed the food very much. We also went for restaurant week; the service and food was very good. I look forward to going back and try more of the menu options.

Our second restaurant for this year's Restaurant Week. It was more than a year ago that I've dined here. Classically prepared dishes and excellent service. Between our group of eight, we tried everything on the prix fixe menu. I had the Mediterranean Faro Salad, the Beef Bourguignon and the Olive Oil Cake. The appetizer was nice, but I think the...

We had dinner with another couple and had a great meal. Great drinks, salads, salmon, fish and dessert. I had the house salad and it was very tasty. The salmon was blackened and really good and crème brulee was outstanding. Let's just say I don't usually eat a whole meal and dessert but we couldn't resist. We were also seated... More

The food was great and the service fantastic. We were lucky to get a reservation on a sub zero Valentine's Day. It was delightful.

Amacal is a cozy restaurant right in downtown Traverse City, which we visited recently on a cold Sunday night. An excellent wine list, plus some help from our waitress, led us to a delicous, slightly sweet sparkling wine from nearby Mawby winery, which went great with the beef and barley soup that I started with. My wife had the tomato... More

I visited Amical with a friend, and really enjoyed the atmosphere and great service. I had the french toast, which was good, but not spectacular.
