First-and-foremost, if you love Italian-inspired American food, then you absolutely need to try this restaurant. The menu options are exceptional and your most difficult decision of the day will be trying to narrow down the list of dishes you want to order. Even better, the food that arrives at the table will, quite frankly, knock your socks off. It will... More

Great spot by Vetri, myself and a date visited on a busy Saturday night. The restaurant is very col looking with a nice size bar and open view of kitchen. We ordered three appetizers that we shared and two entrees. The meals are prepared as family style and are meant to be shared in opinion. The food was excellent with... More

Love the casual setting and the creative interiors. Loved the meatballs made from Swordfish. Save some room for dessert, and if its available they offer probably the best Tiramisú I have ever tasted.

I went to Amis with a friend and had a great experience. It's not super fancy - pretty low key but cozy and great service. We shared a couple of carafes of organic "house" wine which was amazing and well priced. We then shared a number of dishes, all of which was interesting and VERY rich. This restaurant is definitely... More

Had dinner here for the second time. The food and service were very good. The bar and restaurant were full (It was a Saturday evening), so I highly recommend reservations. One of our party of four was disappointed in the menu choices; the waiter (and more importantly, the chef/kitchen) were willing to make a substitution (a change in sauce). He... More

I have eaten here multiple times, from brunch to dinner. Each time the food was delicious. Service was great. A little noisy, but I keep coming back for more.

Amis is a good restaurant with some very good things offered on the menu. The main course was alright, nothing to mind blowing. But they do have some of the best meatballs and quail I have ever had. The pasta was ok but I will most likely be back sometime in the future and try something different. Its got a... More

Possibly, I don't know about it, I only have two children,when you have more children than two, you always risk the chance to have a "Rotten Child". Amis is "the Rotten Child" of the Vetri Family....Shame!!! Nothing went right...from the "cold glass of water", to the tasteless "Virgen Mary" to the main course...What else can I say after a unanimous... More
