I had a wonderful dinner and glass of local wine (tasty). Great ambiance an although the restaurant was busy (on a Wednesday evening) our service was top notch. Only four stars because parking was a challenge.

My wife and I visited Traverse City for a long weekend. We'd seen the reviews for Amical, they were well earned. Roasted chicken was excellent. Service was good, could have been a little more attentive but still ok. Glad we visited, would go back again.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Amical on a recent Sunday night. It's a charming French restaurant with tasty cocktails, traditional French fare. We enjoyed a yummy beet salad, great crab cakes, steak and duck. The French bread was also excellent.

Their early dinner special is perfect--a glass of wine, salad and choice from 5-6 entrees. Food, service and atmosphere all we're the best.
