We went on Wednesday night and we fell in love with the restaurant. There was a live musician, we sat outside under the arch with the beautiful lights strung on the ceiling, the food was delicious, we had great service and honestly couldn't have asked for a better birthday dinner.

Had a great dinner at Amis. They had an amazing season fall menu. We had the cacio e pepe fries, kombu-brined wings, eggplant chips, and fried artichoke. Everything was delicious! The staff was very kind. The best part was the seasonal drinks! They paired nicely with all the food we ordered. Will definitely be back soon!

The appetizers, service and ambience were amazing! However, the two pasta dishes we ordered, the carbonara and shrimp scagetelli was lacking in flavor, which fell short of expectations.

Food and service were great. We really appreciated all the interesting vegetarian options on the menu-- way more creative options than are typically seen at Italian restaurants.

We were very disappointed in Amis. We've liked it in the past, but even though we have had some mediocre meals in the past, this was actually BAD. Not mediocre even. We were a party of 4 and all of us ordered different pastas. They were bland and gluey. Truly disappointed because we were hopeful this restaurant was getting a lift recently.

This place is definitely one to try. Food is very tasty, at least what we ate. Nestled in a bustling area so there are other things nearby, like boutique stores and shops.

Not sure what's going on in the kitchen, but after a great experience pre-pandemic, the food was just bad across the board - hopefully they are able to get back to prior levels of quality soon

I liked everything about Amis except for the food. The chicken dinner was undercooked and my pasta bolognese was bland. The service was excellent the ambience was great but the entrees were very limited.

Hello,
I was disappointed in the entire experience. The occasion was a milestone birthday and it was the first time I had brought the birthday celebrant and two additional guests.

We were placed at the table outside of the kitchen so their was no ambiance and the noise level was unbearable.

Felt very safe sitting outdoors in courtyard. Tables were a good distance from each other. We had a 6:00 reservation and we were only 2 couples in courtyard. As it got later more tables filled up but still all was kept at a safe distance. Staff followed all the Covid guidelines by wearing masks and gloves and standing a safe distance. Loved throwaway menus. Saw staff sanitizing all chairs and tables. Excellent precautions taken by all.

I would definitely recommend Amis. The food was delicious and there were enough options for any type of diner. The service was good; we definitely had a quirky server. The ambiance was one of a restaurant in NYC rather than Westport, which we both liked.
High marks to Chef Jess, who was killin it behind the line!

The ambiance and vibe at Amis are great. We stopped in at happy hour to try a few small plates from their new menu. The rigatoni bolognese was rich and subtle - very authentic flavor with nice al dente pasta. Another hit was their chickpea flatbread (aka socca) with an eclectic topping of prosciutto, ricotta, pickled onions, kale and pomegranate. Quite delicious, although, the generous serving of proscuitto would have blended better with the other ingredients had it been more thinly shaved. Worth trying again soon! Be advised that the 'avocado bruschetta' is really only chunks of avocado, sprouts and chopped walnuts on toast. Get it only if you really love avocados. The only nit would be, they offered a grenache that they purposely, expressly, served chilled. Strange choice. It numbed the flavor of the wine, which tasted fine after it had a chance to reach cellar temperature.
