This was a great meal in a wonderful setting with great service. What more can you say about a restaurant? The pasta was wonderful, the crab cakes lived up to their description, and the raspberry torte dessert was absolutely outstanding. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this place! Get a window table in the back and look out at the water while you... More

We dined here just last week for lunch...had the express lunch special (soup and salad)--both were outstanding. They serve warm breadsticks with lunch and the butter tastes right like it was imported from a farm...delightful warm butter! The server was pleasant and atmosphere a plus as you can sit outside in downtown TC and enjoy the hustle and bustle of... More

I had the Croque Monsieur. It was amazing. They gave us fabulous bread sticks while waiting for our meal. I will definitely go back.

We have eaten here in the winter and summer while visiting the area. Excellent food, ambience, especially the creamy tomato soup, yes, really! Great salads, desserts, would go back just for the carrot cake. Sitting outside is fun people watching. Pricey like all of Traverse, but worth it. Bar area is small but that's not what you are there for.

The service here is good and friendly but it was very busy when we went and there was a bit of a delay before our food order was taken. The starter and main course then came in quick succession so I struggled to finish my main course. The whitefish pâté was great and the chicken was OK but could have... More

Although it is a little overpriced, the food and atmosphere of Amical make every visit a delight. From their French Onion Soup to their heavenly desserts, you will never be disappointed when you choose Amical. If you are fortunate enough to be in Traverse City, please plan on attending their Cookbook Series dinners.

I went here with extended family. We had a fabulous dinner. Every dish was excellent, from fish to pork to vegetarian. The service was outstanding and our server did a great job of helping us pair wine with food. The desserts were really delicious. I would certainly go back and highly recommend this restaurant.

Atmosphere great. The waiter was simply fantastic. He went out of his way to be helpful and friendly, even when an order was forgotten. The food was of really high quality, very good. And love the European deserts! Reminded me of home.
