My husband and I live in southeast Michigan, so whenever we have the opportunity to visit Traverse City we always make a point to dine at Amical. The service is always great, the food is delicious and always has something new and delicious to try. The heated outdoor dining space was a nice treat on a sunny day in February.... More

I try to eat here at least once while in town. Today the lunch special was Artic Char with Parmesan Rissotto....very delicious, maybe a new favorite. The whitefish pate is another favorite and many times get it to take home....they have nice wine list with some local wines. Staff are always friendly and helpful. A must stop when in area.... More

Well we have been here on numerous occasion, and every time it has been excellent. It's far and few between that I can dine somewhere more than a few times without any complaints at all regarding quality of food or service. Amical has exceeded my expectations every time. Melissa, by chance, has been our server the last three visits. She... More

Not sure if this is overrated or just over priced, or both. $10 for a small glass of wine that the server couldn't even describe appropriately. Not what I would classify as value driven. Middle of winter and we were swatting sewer flys away from our table. Seriously? Middle of winter?

My friend and I went to Amical for dessert on a Friday night. The atmosphere was warm, cozy and good. The waitress was very friendly. The dessert...to die for! I had a slice of flourless chocolate cake and it was out of this world amazing! So good, I can't stop thinking about it!

Two couples looking for a Sunday brunch. We entered and had an enjoyable meal. Most of us had egg related lunches. My buddy started with the Tomato Soup en Croute - with a puff pastry. He said he has it on every visit. It looked amazing with a lightly browned pastry crust on top. I had the Amical Croissant, scrambled... More

Amical is one of TC's standout restaurants. The bar is intimate and the restaurant is cozy with a fireplace and plate glass windows that look over the bay. The warm baguette and butter are a great way to start and the french onion soup is always excellent, salads are lightly dressed and very fresh and the mains are consistently good.... More

Traverse City prides itself on being a "foodie" town, but not all restaurants stack up to that claim. This one does! Amical is a favorite for lunch or dinner. You can't go wrong with anything on their menu. As an added bonus, they always have a good option for a vegetarian meal.

Thank Jenifer M
