I'd agree with Lori B's comments. Had the same experience there...30 minutes to get our table (1 hour after our reservation time), another 20 minutes for menus and drink order, 15 minutes to get the drinks (never asked if we were ready to order dinner), 20 more minutes to take our dinner order, and so on. Total time from seating to main course - roughly 90 minutes. Food was great but service keeps us from coming back.

My husband and I were at Amici for our anniversary last year and came back this year again...and it hasn't changed one bit. It was outstanding! just the same as last time. Our server was very knowledgable about the menu and his timing for our courses was spot on. Several other staff continued to tend to our every need throughout our meal, insuring that we were never without. As for the food it was just as good as the last time we visited. The stuffed shrimp was succulent and the apps. from the special menu were over the top. My husband loved his veal and I can't remember enjoying a filet as much as I did that night. I don't think that we will wait another year until we return this time. Thanks for the wonderful experience.

??Tough!?

My husband had the veal dish with Madeira wine sauce. The veal was tough and chewy; the sauce was just about flavorless. The mushrooms were the small white button mushrooms?they may have even been from a can.
I had the stuffed shrimp. The shrimp were completely overcooked to the point of being tough and chewy. The stuffing was composed of mostly bread crumbs and was a tad on the gluey side.
Once we voiced a concern about the quality/preparation of the food, our server never came back to our table. We told another employee we wanted to speak to the owner/manager and, as it turned out, our server WAS the owner. Apparently, his ego got in the way of providing paying customers with properly cooked, flavorful food. Not once did he apologize, or at least empathize with the fact that we weren??t happy with the meal. Basically, he was more concerned with pointing out why WE were bad customers who obviously had no idea what we were talking about. He actually made a comment about how inconvenient it was that he had to come to our table as often as he did. He argued with us about the shrimp dish I sent back, even telling us he had taken it to the kitchen and tried it?kind of gross, if you ask me, seeing that I had already taken a bite of it. Is it normal practice for restaurant staff to eat off a plate that??s already been ??used?? Yuck. (Hopefully, they didn??t serve the rest of the leftovers to another customer!) In the end, I guess it was our ??tough? luck that we chose to eat at Amici??s. Hopefully, you don??t make the same mistake.

I had always feltt Amici was one of the finer restaurants in our area. My experience this weekend was disappointing. We were seated quickly, but left sitting there for 15 minutes. Menus finally arrived, and I had to ask someone to get if we could have a drink. (same waiter would not get us drinks). Another 5 min go buy, and she asks us what we would like to drink. The original waiter was back to take our order before we got our drinks. I was definitely feeling a little rushed. The food was good, but extremely overpriced. Everything is al a carte. Our check was delivered with our desert, and no one bothered to ask if we wanted a refill on our coffee. It was totally our of sinc for fine dining. If the place was crowded I may have understood, but it was far from it.

Well last nite was the frist time at Amici...and it was not a very good expericence. The only person that was plesant and kind to us was the person who greeted us at the door and took us to our seats. Everyone else would just walk up and ask us something like "can i get you something from the bar", or simply just take our order. It took almost 15 minutes just to get a menu. Our waiter never bothered to be pleasant to us, never introduced himself and NOT ONE Person came to us after we got our dinner to ask us how our meal is. The meal was just okay...I had Veal Amici, which was pretty good and my boyfriend had Chicken Rispiei, which was very dry and had little to no taste except for the sausage it was stuffed with. The meal did not come with a salad of any sort unless u ordered one which was extra. We love fine dining but this place definately ranks one of THE worst experiences we've EVER had. Oh Ps. the ambiance was quiet pleasant, but thats about it.

I have had dinner there many times, but visited on 2-13-09, One person in our party had the chicken picatte and it was not good. It looked like boiled chicken with lemon/butter sauce on top. I say redo this recipe. Pecan crusted chicken was good as was the stuffed baked chicken. Renovations to the restaurant looked great.

My girlfriends and I went to this restaurant the other night and we had a fantastic time. The drinks were awesome. We had all sorts of delicious martinis as we enjoyed the summer air outside on a beautiful three tier deck that had great patio furniture- it was so "comfy".
The best thing about this place is that they are also a fine dining restaurant. I took a peek at their dining room and it was gorgeous. I can't wait to make my boyfriend take me for dinner here soon...In the meantime- I hear they have a jazz band on Friday nights...Next "Girls Night Out" will definitely be on a Friday!

Fine Dining in a relaxed atmosphere- Amici has the best of both worlds! My girlfriend and I went to Amici Restaurant Friday evening. We have dined there quite often and have always been delighted by the food and service. However, we were pleasantly surprised to walk into a whole new look and feel with a completely renovated lounge and dining room. Their service was impeccable as always, but the new menu was what we enjoyed the most. We started with a wild mushroom and puff pastry appetizer and a vidalia onion soup. They were both so delicious I didn't think anything could top it- but our entrees were just as amazing. Another nice surprise was the price tag: The quality of the food, wine, atmosphere, and service far surpassed the quantity of our bill. (Always a bonus in my book.) Between the romantic ambiance, the warm and accommodating staff and service, and the delicious food- I give my old favorite an extra star! They couldn't have improved on anything more.

Having dined at Amici's over a dozen times with friends who love their food, I find that the atmosphere just doesn't fit the food being served. I honestly thought it was a horse stable. The ceiling is just a mess, the whole "barrel" concept just doesn't work these days. But the last time I dined there, my dinner plate was chipped, my wine glass was chipped, the napkin looked like it just came out of the dryer it was so wrinkled, and the cutlery was not all clean. I was so insulted and to top it off, the menu was full of stains. The waiter overheard my comments and then acting very standoffish the rest of the evening. Instead of apologizing for the sloppy way they set up their tables, he just took it as an insult. Well, needles to say, I will not return to this restaurant, no matter what. I know of many other restaurants who try hard to create a nice ambiance for their customers. This place just pockets the profits. Not acceptable for the price they charge...

Amicis has some great entrees and their food isn't that pricey, but sometimes it doesn't taste as good as the time before. The staff onhand is great and very nice.

This restaurant has been hit and miss in my book. Some entrees are good and well worth the price while others are not. The shrimp scampi, however is excellent....the best I have ever had. So while I do not go out of my way to go to Amici, I know that I can fall back on the shrimp scampi and have an excellent meal.

This is one of the classiest restaurants I have ever been at. They treat you like royalty, have a variety of 'high class' beverages and dinners and the ambience is wonderful. Great place to take someone special!
