Good food, nice atmosphere. Will definitely go back. Always a destination when in TC. Love sitting outside in the summer and watch the hustle and bustle of the town.

We have been here numerous times and the food is always great along with the service. This time we enjoyed the soup and breadsticks, but other times we have enjoyed salads, sandwiches, pizzas and desserts.

I've been here several times for business and pleasure. The lunch menu is more consistent, regarding flavor. The dinner menue seems to be the hit-and-miss portion of this review. For a french-inspired restaurant, the dinner seems to be a bit bland, lacking that rich french flavor and desperately needing salt and pepper/seasoning. However, the wait staff is consistently wonderful, attentive... More

I live in TC and when my daughter comes home for a visit, this is one of her favorite spots to go. We have never had anything but fantastic food and service here. This time did not disappoint either. My daughter had the rack of lamb special and I had the Amical salad with salmon. Both were wonderful. This is... More

They have a fixed price deal that goes until 5:30, which is what we did. Good selection and very fair price, $19. You get one glass of wine (choices we limited to one white and one red) salad and an entree. Sister had salmon and said it was excellent, I had beef bourgeon and the flavor was great but the...

My sister treated us to a gift card here for our anniversary. We were pleasantly delighted with our experience. Food was outstanding, and the atmosphere was quite enjoyable as well. Dessert blew us away! We'll be back

My husband & I visit Amical multiple times a year when we travel to TC for wine getaways. We have never had a bad meal and the desserts are to die for! Service can be hit or miss depending on who you have, but that's pretty typical of any restaurant! Highly recommend!

This French cuisine is wonderful. Creamy sauces if you like or lighter affair. Small bar near roadside for after dinner drink even if you didn't dine here. Homemade desserts are picture perfect.

We happened in around 5 pm and was given both a regular dinner menu and an early bird menu of Prix fixed meals that incuded wine, salad, protein and starch. I had a cup of ginger carrot soup...
