Great restaurant my friend and i happened upon while shopping in downtown Traverse City. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and the service is wonderful.

The food is always excellent. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and is very seasoned (because it is such a good place to work, no one leaves). They have an early bird menu (great deal) and a monthly cookbook series dinner to supplement their standard menu.

Very popular with locals this restaurant is nicely appointed and my breakfast was very good. Somewhat pricey and the toast was an extra charge.

Our service was great and the appetizers were good, but my meal was just okay. I had the butternut squash gnocchi and it wasn't as good as I expected it to be. The balsamic vinegar sprinkled on was a little odd and not enough butternut squash. Everyone else enjoyed their meal, they had the acorn squash meal, Amish chicken, and... More

Amical is my favorite restaurant in TC. The food is deliciously prepared by chefs that care about presenting the highest quality and best in the area. Try the chicken pot pie for wonderful comfort food. The wait staff is professional and attentive. They also have a great deal if you like to dine before 6:00 pm. $20/per person with great... More

Recommendation from our B&B hosts. We made weekend reservations and were seated immediately. The back of the long, narrow restaurant has tables close to each other, but the acoustics have been done really well because we could hear each other easily and felt like intimate seating even among the lively bustle of the room. We shared the tomato soup, olive... More

Expected more, given all the recent great reviews. Atmosphere was Ok, service was OK and food was OK. Absolutely no stand-out elements during our dinner visit. Cost was a bit higher than caliber of experience warranted. Will explore other options in town next visit.
