Once again Amical can be counted on for an excellent, consistant meal. The beef tenderloin, lamb shank, soups, salad, appetizers and service were excellent. Andrew was our server and he was great. Kudos to owner, Dave Denison and his entire staff!

We have been here a few times. The food is very good. The service is Most excellent. You can eat inside, out in the street or out on the deck over the Boardman River and the Bay out back.The decor could use some updating, it is getting a bit dingy.

This little place has a spot in my heart! Wonderful food, wonderful wait staff, and charming, all rolled into one place. Prices are great also! My Grand Daughter comes from Grand Rapids to eat here for lunch! Comfort food and then some! Hang around long enough and Mario Batalti might just show up

We were actually looking for another breakfast restaurant and found ourselves in front of Amical. We were cold and hungry and the warm friendly atmosphere were exactly what we needed. We were quickly seated and given both excellent coffee and some of the best orange breads we've ever eaten. Service was prompt and polite and the atmosphere was casual. The... More

Sunday Brunch - they accept reservations! Food was amazing, the eggs, pastries, coffee and the service. The service was surprising, we had a slight wait for our food as we heard a crash - and it was ours. The staff apologized for the delay and removed some of our meal charges; without ever being asked! They are known for croissant... More

Awesome food and a very cool environment! The mahi-mahi tacos were excellent! We sat close to the fireplace which was nice on a cold afternoon.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Amical last evening. Our server was adept at steering us in the right direction when we asked questions. Excellent wine choices and the food is very good.

We had a very nice lunch at Amical on Saturday, then returned Tuesday evening because they were offering a menu from a new cookbook in their cookbook dinner series. My wife & I enjoyed both visits very much. Excellent service, and well prepared and presented food. Parmasean crusted whitefish and salad and ravioli with Pumpkin sauce for lunch, and Beef... More

A great place to eat in one of our favorite cities. Menu is wonderful, service is great and the desserts are to die for. When you are finished, shop til you drop along the same street. My favorite is the Rustic Pizza.
