Great

Spectacular dinner! BYOB. Waiter got right to opening the wine and pouring. We were there on a Saturday night at 6 pm and there was one open table. Service and food were impeccable. People who work here really take pride in their work.

Went there for NYE. They had a prix fixe four course meal that night. As usual the food was excellent, but it was more overpriced than usual because of the holiday. Again as usual, the portions were small - which was fine with us but hearty eaters may not appreciate. People were jammed into the small space resulting in very... More

I have been to Amani's on several occasions and this is by far one of the best, most consistent restaurants I've been to. Food quality is excellent, flavors are spot-on perfect, the wait staff is attentive and the fact that it is BYOB makes it reasonable (not inexpensive but you certainly get what you pay for). When reviewing their seasonal... More

Let me start off by saying when you want to go to this restaurant you better make a reservation. You walk through the door and are surrounded by full tables on the left and right which you have to walk through to get to the hostess. There is no waiting area, you are standing in the middle of the walkway... More

Our first time here- excellent food with fresh ingredients and interesting choices. We love that you can BYOB and that they accept reservations. The lobster ravioli was very good, as was the chocolate tart. It was a weekend night so it was a lively, fun atmosphere. Staff is very friendly. We would recommend this restaurant to others.

This restaurant is small and quite noisy. There were four of us for dinner on a Saturday night. The tables were extremely close together not giving you much room to move your chair to get in or out. The noise level was annoying we couldn't hear each other across the table. The upside to this review is the food was... More

Wife and I go here each time we need to splurge. Probably one of the best in Chester County. Get the berkshire pork appetizer. You wont be sorry.
