Our table enjoyed the flavorful dishes including goat cheese dumplings, lamb ribs, gazpacho, short ribs, crab cakes and tuna. All very tasty.

I fully enjoyed the entire experience. When the food is that great, it is an experience. It's truly worth saving for!

We tried out Amani's BYOB for a Sunday brunch for our first time visit. The restaurant looks like it was originally a pizzaria that was slightly remodeled. While maybe they could have done a little more during the remodeling efforts, the tables were neatly set with linens and cloth napkins. The brunch menu had nice options and was only slightly...

My husband and I recently went to Amani's for the first time. The food and service were both incredible- the menu unique and varied. For the prices, I expected more atmosphere...it reminded me a very nice cafe. The table next to us had two screaming toddlers and the dress of the clientele was extremely casual ( baseball cap) The restaurant... More

My husband and I had a wonderful meal at Amani's. The atmosphere is a little cramped and noisy, but still enjoyable. We thought the calamari and crab spring roll appetizers were excellent. Our entrees did not disappoint - we loved the snapper with apple/poblano hash and the pork chop with figs and risotto. We enjoyed the wine we brought and... More

The food is always excellent but be sure to ask the price of the specials. I had venison over the winter and the price was a bit on the high side-although the venison was delicious. Just ask first then enjoy!

Small restaurant with excellent chef and service. Very good for small groups and couples as well as couple dinning. Fine fare on the menu that changes often for the seasons and special available items. Great local find for a fine evening out.

This is a hidden gem. The service was outstanding and the food was superbly cooked and presented. The kitchen is inside the dining area, which is interesting in a high end restaurant and adds to the noise. Decor is a little odd for this style of place (a semi-rural theme?) and the tables are a little too close. Ordinarily I... More

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
