Not a fan. Plenty of my friends are. Can't figure out why they are enamored with this place. This is a little BYO in an otherwise depressed, industrial downtown area. It gets reviewed highly so the chef and staff seem to inhale their own press. The food is surely good, but not enough to warrant the oddly snooty, aloof service.... More

Best food in Chester county If it wasn't for bad acoustics it would be the best restaurant in the Delaware valley Looking forward to another visit soon

Celebrated Mother's Day here - loved how the place looked, very quaint! Their spring menu had just started. Loved the prosciutto flat bread and the lamb appetizer! Also had the oysters but we usually prefer them as simple as possible. For the mains, the duck breast was an absolute stand out! The pork ribs and the Lancaster chicken were ok,... More

We are locals and ate at one of our usual haunts last night for a double birthday dinner. As always our dinner was exceptional and we had one of the best seats in the house as requested. Amanis serves a locally sourced seasonal menu the changes about 4 times a year. The restaurant is owned and operated by John and... More
