Amali is a farm-driven Mediterranean restaurant on the border of Midtown East and the Upper East Side. Called “one of the best in Midtown” (New York Magazine), Amali's menu focuses on Italian and Greek dishes, and offers an award-winning wine list with over 400 selections. Since opening in 2011, Amali has received critical praise for its cuisine and sustainable practices from The New York Times, The Obama White House, James Beard House, Eater and virtually every major wine publication.
The food is not worth what they charge. The kale salad and whipped feta dip were fine. Our waiter recommended the salt baked sea bass, but never mentioned that it weighed in at 3-1/2 lbs. - far too big - and that it cost over...More
I liked the food a lot at Amali. But I would qualify the restaurant as good neighborhood Italian restaurant... with 1 Star Michelin prices. I ordered a regular quinoa salad. Portion was very small... price $19. Added a (very small) piece of salmon and the...More
This restaurant came highly recommend so it was especially disappointing that our experience was very mediocre. The food was OK. Portions were small and the selection was limited. Price did not reflect this. The service was appalling (and the restaurant was less than half full...More
I have heard great things about this Mediterranean farm to table restaurant. The appetizers, service and wine were fine, but the main courses where definitely ones to forget. Both my colleagues pork belly and my steak where more fat than flavor.
I firmly believe on...More
With so many restaurants to choose from in Midtown, Amali was a quiet spot for something different. The flavor profiles are unique and tasty. I really enjoyed the tuna tar tar; it was different than any other I’ve had before. My scallops were perfectly seared...More
We very much enjoyed our early-evening visit before a 7:15 curtain at 59E59. Ricotta toast, house-made pasta, and an enormous half-chicken 'under a brick' were all very good. Our waiter's description of a Greek white in the by-the-glass section was right on the money. At...More
The server called in sick due to lack of interest. Their whole fish was sold as something to be 'wait worthy', but was dry and over salted. Wine suggestions were meant to pad the bill. We asked for a "quiet" table, and instead of laughing...More
We stopped here for brunch on a Sunday and were delighted with the menu. It covered the vegetarian and GF needs of our group. The food was very tasty and the service was good. They were attentive and refilled glasses quickly without hovering. We sat...More
I stumbled into this restaurant in the rain on my way back to my hotel. It is down 2 steps through an apartment building doorway. The lovely candles attracted me to it. It has low lighting and a small bar. I sat and ordered amazing...More
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.

Aaron - we have three different private rooms at Amali but there is an additional cost. If you prefer to dine, a la carte, we will put an entry in the notes regarding a quiet table. The Skylight Room in the rear is actually kept (by us) at a lower volume (music is softer, etc.). But if there are large parties there it does get louder as a function of the parties. If you would like to speak with our events coordinator please call us at 212.339.8363 and ask for Steve or go to our website (trip advisor prevents me from including an email address in this response). If you make an a la carte reservation, email me so I may try my best to arrange a quieter table pending a review of the other reservations.
