We arrived for our 830 reservation to find the restaurant entirely empty although there were no earlier reservations listed online. We asked the host and he indicated that more parties will be coming in. We were still the only people there when we left

Our family of 4 was there celebrating a birthday. Appetizers came our immediately and were very good. Dinner - not so much. One dish of pasta was brought out and the other 3 dinners were still not there for another 10 minutes. We flagged down the host, sent back the cold pasta and asked that all meals please come out together. We waited a good thirty minutes for the meals to come out (restaurant was not crowded.). They came out together but the two pasta dishes again were cold! So we sent them back again. The other two diners were finished their meals long before the pasta was brought out again - the third time. At least it was hot !

There was no offer of a drink, dessert, take the two pastas off the check - just an apology. Needless to say it was a very disjointed dinner and tough to celebrate.

Food was great. Had the meatballs and thin sliced eggplant to start and the Hanger Steak with Chimichirri as a main - delish. The server suggested a great bottle of red.
They seem to be seriously short staffed and was somewhat put off by the hostess who told us the people ahead of us ‘needed to be educated in the process of making a reservation…’ very condescending I thought.

Love Vetri… but Covid has hurt lots of things… over cooked pasta, crab meat needs to be white, not claw meat at ANY price. GREAT margarita. Great salad.. wait staff inexperienced. Front of the house extremely attentive. We’ll return. Try the Pizza Vetri, connected.

Remarkably poor across the board.
Hard to understand how there can be such disinterest in all phases of the dining experience.
I am in a service industry and know good from bad. Good is attentive; bad is apathetic .

We ate early (5:30) and sat in the enclosed patio. Lovely ambiance, tables a good distance apart (important for friends with COVID concerns). Our server was pleasant and attentive. Nice selection of food and everything we ordered was great with exception of the rice pudding which just wasn’t to my liking. Will return and do recommend.

We were so sorry to hear about your experience. All of the things you listed would certainly make for a dissatisfying experience, and I offer my sincerest apologies. Going out to eat these days is certainly not something we can take for granted anymore, and so for an experience to go like yours did would be truly frustrating. If you were interested, we would invite you to come back so that we could give you an experience that more truly reflects the standards we strive for.

It was better than I remembered it. The food was fabulous and much better than it had ever been with their new menu. We were kept waiting for our table. But, the server (or manager?) more than made up for it with the eggplant small plate as a token of our wait) It was heavenly. Since it was family style, I tasted everything the 4 of us ordered. Everything was better than the next. We remained seated for over 2 hours (no one was waiting for our table) It was a memorable night. I can’t wait to go back!

First time here and impression was great.
Ambiance and food taste was very similar to once loved by us Buddakan in Philly. The same theme of Budda around the walls, spaciousness and taste in decorations and very unique flavors of food.
Had lunch ordering Miso soup, Bento box for two, Nectar Lo Main and deconstructed Meringue for dessert. The Soup and Lo Main were amazing and the other dishes were great. Probably wouldn't order the bento box again but only because of the price ($24 is a bit too much for 6 mostly vegetable dumplings and one roll cut in half, but if the price would be around $15, then why not : ) ). All the other dishes were well worth the price.
Speaking about service it was wonderful too. Our server Mimi was very nice,
professional, efficient and very friendly. Thank you Mimi for your warm attitude, now days it's just..."priceless".
We left this place in a very good mood, so needless to say we are coming back and soon

I’ve been here many times but not since it reopened. I know everyone is suffering from lack of staff but wow. The service was really slow.
The Brussels sprout appetizer was very tasty but the pasta was dull, boring and watery. One of our party ordered an appetizer as her main and wanted it be served with the other dinners. Nope. It came almost right away. It sat there for the 30 minutes it took them to prepare 2 plates of pasta. We had to ask the waitress to take it back and bring a fresh one. It was all sort of ridiculous.
This was one of my favorite restaurants but I’ll wait a while before my next visit.

My husband and I and my two daughters and our son-in-law came for my birthday dinner. The waitress we had was new and someone was helping train her. We ordered our drinks but they took forever to come. Our appetizers came before our drinks did. The appetizers were amazing. We had the meatballs, the brussels sprouts and the crispy artichokes. The drinks when we finally got them, or also very good. We ordered a bottle of white wine, a Pinot Grigio and it was also wonderful. The entrées were a little lackluster. The pasta was somewhat undercooked but it wasn’t too bad. We all got our entrées except for my daughter. The waitress who is training forgot to write it down and they had to make it quite quickly so she wouldn’t be waiting too long. I will give it another chance definitely. The atmosphere is wonderful the scenery is beautiful.

Our first time back at Amis since the start of Covid closures/restrictions. While we enjoyed the family style serving approach it felt a little rushed and with 4 people at the small table there sometime wasn't enough room to navigate the plates. So my recommendation is that if you and your party are not ready for the food-consider sending it back to the kitchen to stay warm and have them bring it out when you are ready. or maybe ask for a bigger table. The food was outstanding, we really enjoyed as our appetizers the crispy brussel sprouts, scallops and twice fried artichoke really delicious! We also had the burrata heirloom tomato salad-yummy! Entrees we selected that were equally delicious were the brown butter chicken, the salmon and of course the Tonnarelli cacio e pepe pasta (to die for)! and our server Chris was fantastic! we will definitely be back.

It was just okay. We asked to celebrate my parents’ anniversary. Service was just flat out bad- they forgot bread, water was slow and we ended up dragging on dinner because the service was just so slow. It was a bummer. They did nothing special for the anniversary either, can’t say I was surprised ultimately. Food was just okay- not worth the money.

Our expectations were exceeded during our first meal at Amis in Devon. The service was attentive without being intrusive, yet very friendly. We loved that we were encouraged to order lots of different dishes to share - even being a twosome it worked out perfectly. Eggplant chips with honey were a delight, the broccoli rabe bruschetta I will try to make myself because it was so flavorful. We can't wait to go back.
