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.

My first time eating at Amis was on Valentines Day. Service was TOP NOTCH AND FOOD WAS EXCELLENT. My waiter was Benjamin and he was very attentive to our needs and brought humor to us. The experience was second to none. We will definitely be going back soon. I will always Recommend Benjamin if you want to have an amazing night filled with laughter.

This place is ambitious. The service is seemingly attentive and friendly, but the execution of this service is flawed. Our drink order was wrong, even after a clarification from the waiter. Our first drink order arrived after our appetizer was service and consumed. That is pretty late. Our appetizer dishes were collected, with the assurance that our utensils would be replaced. The were not replaced and our entrees served with out them. We just stared at them until we could flag someone to give us utensils. All the while the waiter is continuously asking us if we are good. The need to shift all the talk to execution is clear. Execute first, and then when you get that right, spend time fine tuning the service.

The atmosphere and service was well done. We were excited with the menu, but disappointed with the dishes ordered. The Baked Fontina for two was overcooked and difficult to eat. Toast was slightly burned. We both ordered Rigatoni Bolognese which had too little sauce for taste. There is a lot of competition to be only average.

Waited 30 mins after our reservation time to be seated. Restaurant was extremely loud. Our waiter was really young and immature. He kept chiming into our conversations. My friend ordered the cod and he bought him veal pasta. My friend said he was fine with the pasta since we were so hungry and the waiter just said “ok” and walked away. No apologies. The ambiance is nice and the food was OK.

I invited my niece and sister /brother in law . We all had something different and all enjoyed our meals/ the brunch burger was mind blowing !!!!!! We did have the eggplant chips that came to the table very well done - waiter took back no issues - when the new order came they were not great they were soggy and oily but ate them anyway- the rice pudding is amazing!!!! The burrata was also good . Gnocchi was ok.
Our waiter Anthony was fantastic !

Went for dinner on a Thursday evening for my husband’s birthday. The service was great. We had a wonderful waiter who was very attentive & great at his job. Our apps were wonderful - burrata & octopus. However our entrees were not very good. I got the scallops, which were very salty, as was the enormous mound of celery root underneath. It was a total salt bomb & way too much celery root. There needed to be another veg or something with it. My husband’s short ribs were over cooked & tough. He needed to use the steak knife often. He’s used to having short ribs that are more tender & fall off the bone. That didn’t happen in this case. However the polenta was very good.

We loved our experience at Amis! Big fan of the atmosphere. The entire staff was very pleasant from the moment we walked in. Our server was awesome. He was funny, attentive, and gave us plenty of recommendations as this was our first time dining at Amis and most certainly not our last! The crispy Brussels sprouts and the pear and arugula salad were fantastic!

Wonderful night out. The food was delicious. My friend has an onion allergy and the staff was great about checking ingredients before finalizing our order. Wine selection was on point and the Red blend they have on tap was superb. Will return in the future.

We went for New Years Eve dinner. They had a special menu for that night and the food was outstanding. It's Westport, so value wise it was no bargain but still a reasonable price. Most importantly, the food was good and the noise level was manageable unlike most other trendy places which tend to be too noisy.

Food is always excellent. Great cocktails and ambiance. Although short staffed the day after Christmas the service did not miss a beat. Ben who was tending bar doubled as wait staff and I would say the service was the best we’ve seen. Always one of my top choices.

The restaurant is very cute. It was very busy when we were there. Our waiter was very nice. Some of the food was great, some just okay- needed more spicing . I would go back to try again. The high top tables are out of the noisy bar area. I would choose those tables next time

Service remains excellent. Manager, Mike the bartender, wait staff all good. Food was not. Salad used wilted vegetables. Pasta flavorless. Had 3 of 4 orders remade. Kitchen needs a chef supervising; looked like just line cooks.
