BYOB is a good start. My husband and I sat at a table for two which was dressed simply in white with a vase containing a full bloomed white rose edged in pink. We chose a dinner of appetizers which we shared:: a house special of selected oysters on the half shell, Berkshire pork belly, braised lamb ribs, and crispy... More

Amani's in Downingtown PA is one of the go to restaurants for special events. We just returned from a 4 course New Year's Eve dinner. WOW were they on point! We started with a simple green salad with wonderful blue cheese and a Mache salad with teardrop peppers. How unique and delicious. Our second course was jumbo lump crab cake... More

This was our first time at Amani's and it was delicious. Our group of 4 split calamari and it was cooked beautifully, very tasty with the edamame. Some got salads, one got the crab and corn chowder and one got the pork belly, all were great. For entrees, we had the salmon, lobster ravioli, Long Island Duck Breast and the... More

Went to Amani's on a Saturday evening. Arrived a few minutes before our reservation and with only 1 other party in the restaurant my group was seated by the door. We asked the host to seat us at a different location because it was a cold evening and the restaurant was empty at the time; we were told that they... More

We have been here several times, the menu is always changing with the season and is always fresh. I have never had a bad meal. They also do food and drink pairings which are always fun and a great way to try many things, it's always hard to save room for dessert!

Amani's BYOB delivers a top-knotch dining experience that you might not expect in this small, relatively unassuming restaurant. From the open kitchen to the rustic elegance, engaging waiters and varied seasonal menu, everything is lovely. I had the New Zealand King Salmon with Apple Chutney, Ginger Panko Crust, Charred Pepper Cashew Forbidden Rice & Sautéed Haricot Vert, which was very... More

Another enjoyable brunch - pleasant service and great food! The best fries on the planet!!!!! We stop in often for lunch or brunch - next we've got to try dinner. Downtown Downingtown location but plenty of public meter parking around back.

Spend is high for food that is really not all that special. There is no bar so you need to bring your own libation.

We had this on our radar for several years, but finally got here, and weren't disappointed. Food was excellent - service was decent (early in the evening; still learning the specials). Fresh oysters were crisp, cold, and nicely shucked. Sweet Potato Fritters were excellent, with a little heat. Crab cakes had nice sweet pepper accents, and the ahi tuna was... More

Nice little neighborhood gem... Good food... BYOB. It's small, and somewhat noisy on a weekend night. The tables are tight.. We had a party of 6 and it's more comfortable for four. Nice menu and good specials.
