I had heard great things about Amical and it was highly recommend however this restaurant fell very short of my expectations it was overpriced and service left a bit to be desired... It was not awful and the Carrot Cake was very good however as a whole I would skip it and head to another restaurant as there are a... More

We went to Amical for our anniversary dinner. First off, there is no "dress code". Shorts and collard shirts for the men are the norm so no need to pack slacks and shirts especially for dinner. The restaurant is small and I wold suggest getting a reservation. We had small Caesar salads to start the meal, followed by the Filet... More

The food was so great (and different) we went back the next day! Great service, reasonable prices! Try the Amical Salad, mushroom and goat cheese pizza, the tomato bisque soup and the olive twists!

I liked the cozy atmosphere and hip menu featuring local foods. The local steak special was grain fed beef and it was flavorful but a bit tough. I loved the demi glaze sauce and the vegetables were great. The dessert of angel food coconut and icing ball was really good.

Decided to come here on a whim, didn't regret it. Lasagna was amazing, lamb was falling off the bone and delicious. Service was great. There are also a gazillion desserts to choose from that all looked fantastic. Would definitely return.

On our last night in Traverse City, we were excited to visit Amical prior to seeing a concert at Interlochen and so we booked an early seating. Upon arrival, I was told by the hostess that our table was due to be occupied in an hour and 20 minutes. Normally, that would not be a problem, but it would have... More

We ate inside as the outdoor area was full - nice atmosphere inside. The tomato basil soup was wonderful. My daughter and I shared the Smoked Whitefish Pate as an appetizer and it was excellent. The quiche of the day looked wonderful.

An old stand by in TC. But to me this place is over rated and disappointing. Plus, each table is really packed in. Not a great dining experience to me. I"d skip it in favor of other new restaurants.

Had a late lunch on Front street today at Amical. Soothing colors and atmosphere with a delicious French lunch and a Napolean. It partners with local businesses with ingredients to make a true local experience.

Ordered their Soup of the Day--Cream of Mushroom Soup. I stopped our server and asked her if they put dumplings in their soup. She gave me an odd look and said "no." I had already fished out several teaspoon size balls of partially cooked flour from my cup of soup. I know exactly what the cook did for that to... More
