Amani's offers a great dinning experience in a casual, open-kitchen room. The food is excellent and the service is superb. We were a party of 8, all meals were delivered together by a team of servers, including one of the chefs!. This was my first BYOB experience, our waiter was very professional with the wine service ( ice buckets, open... More

Our first-time experience at Amani's was delightful. We were pleased with the friendly and knowledgeable service and the first-rate quality, freshness, preparation and presentation of the food. Worthy of a repeat trip.

Cozy BYOB in heart of Old Downingtown. The Caribbean Grouper is outstanding. Fresh and spicy. Service was friendly, prompt and inobtrusive.

This restaurant gets two stars because of the lovely wait staff. Based on food and atmosphere, it would not fare as well. The menu looks amazing - the chef has creativity, but relies far too heavily on salt. My husband and I sampled four menu items, and the primary taste in each was salt. I was so thirsty that the...

We went to Amani's with my son's family and we had Sunday brunch and they had a big selection and what we all selected was very good and reasonably priced. We will definitely go again.

Do you love fresh, local food? I do! The chef is one of the areas top chefs, and the food prepared is delicious and always fresh. The menu is pricey, but worth it for special occasions (at the very least). I love that the menu changes with the seasons. I don't think this a restaurant that you should take kids,... More

My friend and I went to Amani's for a Saturday night dinner recently. We were a little early for our reservation and were told (politely) to either wait outside or in the back hallway, as the restaurant is too small to hover near the hostess area. They really need to do something about this. It's not a great first impression... More
