I have been here for dinner a bunch and I absolutely love it. Today I went for brunch and it was amazing! I got the rigatoni with sausage and my friend got the Belgium waffle. They also brought out the duck bolognese from the kitchen on the house because my friend is there almost every week. All three were fantastic-... More

Amis was recommended by a friend who has connections to Philly and we were not disappointed. I've only ever been there for brunch and what impresses me is the quality of the food, the willingness by the kitchen to accommodate any and all food issues (my one friend is vegan), and the constant communication with any member of the wait...

We sat outside which was wonderful and enjoyed a several course meal and enjoyed every bite. Our waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and gave wonderful recommendations! Sweat breads, veal tongue and bucatini were our favorites. Skip the polenta side.

My mother, sister and I wanted to eat at one of the Philadelphia Magazine top 50 restaurants and chose this because we could walk from our hotel and because it was one of the Vetri restaurants. We went on Wednesday night and it was crowded so I'm glad we had made a reservation. We ordered the baked pecorino with honey... More

I love the location of this restaurant & its casual atmosphere. And while I had a lovely meal here with family, the consistency of our dishes varied wildly. Some plates were wonderful such as the mixed salumi platter, the grilled veal tongue and fried cauliflower. While others were very disappointing: tuna bruschetta (very dry) and the tortellini in brodo (thin... More

Visited on a weeknight in early April. Service was slow, cocktails good but tiny. My monkfish was not great and I didn't eat much of it; they kindly took it off the bill without my asking. Many superb restaurants in Philly, doubt I will be giving this another try after my so-so experience.

This is a very busy place (on the night we went anyway). It took a while to be seated, but once the table opened up the staff hustled to get it ready and us seated very quickly. Very good service, great and knowledgeable staff. The food we ordered came swiftly and in good portions to keep the entire group happy... More

Everything about Amis exceeded our expectations. We sat at the kitchen bar in front of the prep station and got to talk to the folks doing the work. They were incredible people and we felt part of the family by the time we left. The food was very, very good and the atmosphere perfect for just about any occasion, though... More

The food was excellent, vary unusual menu with some neat twists on standards. The special for the night focused on Guinea Fowl in 3 different ways. The entrée saltimbocca was awesome !!!. The...
