Wonderful French Country cooking - delicious food!

Amazing food. Much of it sourced locally when possible. A wonderful selection, cozy setting in downtown Traverse City. Good portions, reasonable prices, excellent service - just a great overall vibe. One of my favorite places!

A bistro experience... My girlfriends and I love it here, my husband isn't too enthusiastic. He says the food is too girly and dainty, but it's all delicious and has beautiful presentation. The food here is unique, gourmet and paired great with a glass of wine. If you want burgers and a beer hit up one of the breweries. If... More

We had a great early dinner consisting of salmon, Amish chicken and raviolis. All of those were part of a flat rate (around $19) which included choices of red or white wine, coffee or soda. I have to admit that I tried each one of them and the taste was superb. We also ordered dessert, one of the best we... More

Liked the outdoor heated dining, great meals and good wine, right in the heart of downtown. Great for lunch or dinner

Met friends for Sunday dinner after busy weeks with visitors. Amical is always wonderful. Well trained staff, consistently tasty dishes, perfectly prepared, quality wine list, and intimate space. We can always count on Amical to deliver the same great experience!

We had a nice dinner on the intimate patio with excellent, friendly service from Jamie. The seafood gazpacho & whitefish dip appetizers were yummy, as were the lobster tacos, whitefish, & chicken piccata entrees. Dessert of cherry cobbler & apple/nuts/caramel slices with chocolate was delicious. Some kids and older adults clientele. Make a reservation and get there early if outside... More

The food here is excellent, the ambience not so much. We were squished next to another table where they could not get out unless we got out of our chair first. We had reservations but still were asked to wait 45 minutes for a table outside so we sat inside.

This is a great spot to stop for a shopping break luncheon. You can get a "downtown express" for under 10$ and pick your choice of 2 from salad, soup, and quiche. You get yummy breadsticks and butter with your order. The coffee is very, very good and this is one of the best places in town for dessert. I... More

I've eaten here a couple of times for breakfast and lunch. The food is good and a nice atmosphere. It's convenient in the downtown area.

Sat outside with a table on the street. Fun view of TC. Great brunch spot with great staff. Their version of Eggs Benedict was interesting and good.
