Upscale delight

We were overwhelmed with nut crusted white fish (local) and the braised pork. Large portions, deliciously prepared, beautifully presented.

This is one of our go-to restaurants. The staff is fantastic. The food is usually excellent but the last few times it was a little off. The fish was overcooked and dry and the short ribs were bland. The waiter had great suggestions for wines. Save room for dessert.

We recently were able to sit outside for dinner - it was a bit chilly out, but we wanted the illusion of spring and the outside heaters made it possible! We ate here while they were having a special "cookbook week" where their menu was based off of dishes from a cookbook. At first, I was a little disappointed because... More

Excellent food and very good service. We are never disappointed in Amical. Be sure to try the chicken pot pie!

There is no two ways about it, Amical is hands down our favorite restaurant in the Grand Traverse area. The service is flawless, the cocktails and wine selection is superb and the French inspired entrees meet our every expectation! We've been going here for years..and for every type of family celebration. We're not from Traverse City, either. I only have... More

I've been here for lunch and had the soup and salad, which was reasonable priced and tasty. Took my baby, who made a mess, and the waitress was still so nice! My hubby took me here also for dinner and we had a great experience as well. I think the desserts are my favorite though. The flourless cake and raspberry... More

I sat outside here with my husband for lunch. We had amazing service as always. The food was great. it was fresh, well prepared and well plated. We had the white fish pate and the olive twist bread. Both were really good. I also had Cappuccino. It was fabulous. I really enjoyed sitting outside watching people on the street. The... More

Our first visit here, very impressed with the quality of the food. Has a European feel to the menu with a variety of choices each that we tried were fantastic. They change the menu frequently and you can taste the pride in which they prepare each dish. Portions were ample and great classic tastes. Service was friendly and helpful with... More

Amical is our go-to restaurant when we want good food at a reasonable price. We especially like to French onion soup and roasted chicken, which are always on the menu.
