We were there for a business lunch with a colleague. I ordered the chicken breast sandwich. They served me the rubber chicken. My boss ordered an iced tea, and had to ask for it again when the meal was served. Our waiter offered to return my sandwich to the kitchen, but as we had to return to work, I declined.... More

I waited to write a review until having been four times to dinner at Amani's BYOB to see if the excellent experience we had there was a fluke or not. It was not. The food there is just impeccable and perfect in every way - beautifully plated, fresh ingredients well prepared with a depth of flavor that highlights each item.... More

Our couples group was to meet, but we were the only ones at Amani. The staff was attentive and sympathetic. they removed 2 tables and were patient with us since we were reluctant to order. 30 minutes late, one couple arrived and and one table was efficiently replaced by our server. WE had already ordered, but the Amani kitchen slowed... More

Menu is always Changing with the season, amazing Chef & Staff. Small Restaurant but you still have room, not piled on top of each other to squeeze another table in. We have gone for Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner... All are hits

The restaurant has received very good reviews so 3 of us went for lunch today.The ambiance is pleasant and the menu is good, however the crab cake was disappointing and the brioche lacked the appearance of one and was just ok. The truffle fries were tasty though not hot, and another person's flatbread was good but not great and not... More

Our daughter and son-in-law treated us to an evening at Amani's. They have been there several times and really wanted us to experience it. There were many items on the menu that looked good and then our waiter described the specials which made our choices even harder. We started with the house special of selected oysters which was enjoyed by... More

Just returned from a trip out West where we dinned @ all the top restaurants and non even came close to Amani's! I can't say enough about Amani's incredibly fabulous menu! The multi layer of flavors prepared in each dish keeps you wanting more. This restaurant is a hidden gem...

My wife and I live 4 miles from Amani's. My wife is from Downingtown, and grew up a few blocks from what is now Amani's. It's a cozy little place, and make sure to bring your favorite beverage to accent your meal. The whole staff is great, and the food is phenomenal and farm to table. You can't go wrong... More
