We visited the restaurant during a little getaway. We started with a very good Mediterranean appetizer. We needed more bread to go with it, and they were happy to bring us more. I ordered veal meatloaf and my wife had a tasty salmon with a horseradish sauce. We were happy with the food and enjoyed sharing.
Our server was fine, but not great. The atmosphere is a little pretentious, but I didn't think it was overpriced, especially for AMI.

Thank jlfla

stayed for 5th time on AMI and first visit to this establishment. Food was awful, menu is limited and they put things together which don't go. Had the fishcake which were puny and mostly made up of potato, the dish came with a sauce and nothing else, this was meant to be a main meal. Against my better judgement I ordered a dessert which was supposed to be a light sponge with a ginger glaze. It was a ginger sodden sponge which had been microwaved served with a couple of strawberries. It tasted even worse than it looked and asked for it to be removed from the bill. Needless to say give this a wide berth.

Had dinner there after getting fed up & walking out of Lobstahs up the street. Service at Eat Here was great. Lobster tacos, veggie pizza, Mediterranean platter, and onion soup were all fantastic. Apple dessert was delicious. This wasn't the first time we ate here and it certainly won't be the last. For a wonderful meal and all around great dining experience: Eat Here!

A group of friends and I decided to try out Eat Here after hearing some good word-of-mouth recommendations. We ended up having a great time ordering tapas style for the table to share and try multiple different menu choices. The location isn't the greatest...in a strip mall type atmosphere, but the restaurant itself was clean and offered outdoor seating on a private fenced off area. Our waiter was good at recommending some great food and wine options, and the group had a wonderful time. NOTE: for those new to small plate type menus, make sure you plan to order at least 2 different things as you will not be full if you only order one menu item for yourself.
