We just arrived to Traverse City and after checking in in our hotel we drove downtown to see if we can find an appealing place to dine. We parked, walked around and when we passed in front of Bistro Amical, it seemed attractive. so we decided to try. It was an excellent choice, service was very good and the French style food of this typical bistro was above our expectations. They have garden, land and sea specialities on the menu, which is rather on the expensive side. We had one fish and one meat course, with two different, excellently recommended, glasses of wine. We spent more than we expected, but left with a satisfying experience

Authentic French atmosphere, interesting menu, fine service. Lamb shank with a touch of cinnamon was very good. Very nice walleye. Proper portions--not for bubba. Fair prices.

The food was very good, providing lots of different choices. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service most of all. I often bring my 10 year old daughter to nice restaurants while on vacation. At most restaurants the wait staff does not typically treat her with as much respect as they would if i was with another adult. However, our waitress Joy treated her with extreme respect and provided us with a wonderful dining experience.

Just up the street from State Theatre, we went pre show. It is pretty tight seating, so be prepared to share conversations with your neighbour. Our waitress was attentive and helpful in our selections. The seafood special was scallops - 4 medium size, served on peppery rice and roasted cauliflower veg. The ceasar salad was lemon laced and lacked any bacon influence that you would expect. So, not your standard meals - trying to be upscale, but not quite there... The menu was overall pricey and maybe a special occasion excuse.
