Best Restaurants in Jersey City
Restaurant was packed for brunch
with good reason. Best and unique/interesting selection of brunch items we have ever seen. All were well prepared, very flavorful and plentiful. Can't say whether or not they were short staffed this particular day, but once order was taken and served, very difficult to get the attention of wait staff. Did observe one family of four leave after waiting at least 15 minutes and not receive any service at all. That's not good, but it appears the locals will sustain this restaurant. We do recommend, but make a reservation and trip a wait staffer to get attention because the food was great."

Go here all the time for brunch
... I say the caramelized banana french toast is the best I've ever had. My photographer says the shrimp and grits are absolutely outstanding. All the other menu items we've tried are excellent also, but we keep coming back for those 2 particularly. Also, the lunches are excellent and the bartender makes excellent drinks for a late evening relaxation. This is one of our fav places."

Always enjoy it here, and it was

I go alot to this place never make
a reservation thru open table this was the very first time. This time service was not that good. The server seemed to be gone we asked for a bottle of water she brought us tap water. Then we asked for the bottle of water she took very long to bring to the table. This is the first time happening the restaurant was not that busy. it is still one of my favorite place to go have brunch and dinner. "

Needed to find a place for a
Mother's Day meal and after making some last minute plans in the city and, needless to say, everything in the city was booked up. We went to OpenTable and searched restaurants with openings that would be somewhat on the way home with good reviews and, luckily for us, we found Amelia's Bistro. We are a family of five and we all enjoyed our meals, as well as the look, feel, and location of the place. Highly recommended. "

Very enjoyable, good food, and kid friendly. "

Amelia's never disappoints. A
"must" stop when my parents or other visitors come to JC. Thanks."

My family loved Amelia's Bistro!
The server created a large table for our group, giving us plenty of space. Food arrived quickly - we were in a hurry - and beautifully presented. From delicious flat bread pizza, to healthy, creative salads, and a variety of tasty mains, we all loved our meals. My husband commented that he wished he had more time to work his way thru the menu. If ever in Jersey City, try this place! There's a cool private room in the basement that looks perfect for a private dinner party. "

They accommodated us with a round
table as I requested. The food and food presentation was very good. Service was excellent. Was a family birthday dinner and we enjoyed ourselves very much in Amelia's atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it. It was recommended to me by my 28 year old daughter and her boyfriend."

The menu sounds good, variety and
good concept; unfortunately execution is not "gourmet". Price point is reasonable and ambience is good. More like a family place in the neighborhood. Full bar is available."

Amelia's Bistro always has great
service, a pleasant atmosphere and food that is consistently good. The experience is the same whether I'm dining with out of town guests or stopping in for a brunch."

The new truffled wild mushroom
crostini is outrageous, as is the kale salad. Proscuitto had a strange taste, tho."
Dined on 3/6/2014
First time having brunch at this
spot was very good. The small plates were not as impressive but still good to enjoy - bite size amounts. Brunch menu is not huge but options were appealing. The dishes were savory and packed with flavor. Then came here again for dinner and the salmon was fiery but tasty. The cod fish was delicious with the sauteed kale. Unfortunately, the caipirinha were not made so well. They were very sweet and lacked lime. But other than that, overall good experience. Will still come back to try other dishes :)"

I have been to Amelia's countless
times over the years and feel like the quality has really gone down. I loved the pear gorgonzola flatbread that they no longer have. The cheese plate was good but for $12 it was a little sparse. The main meals that we got were nothing to rave about. So, overall it was fine but no longer in my top rated restaurants of JC."

the caramel crunch Brioche French
Toast was very Good !!!"

A great place for a nice lunch or
weekend brunch, Good food, reasonable prices,"

We had dinner there on a Saturday
night, not overly crowded which was nice. Waitstaff was great, food was okay. Might go back again, but more so for drinks and appetizers."
Dined on 2/15/2014
First time dining here. I sat at
the bar. Friendly bartender who makes excellent drinks. His food recommendations did not steer us wrong. Loved the crostini! I'm sure that I'll be back."

Dined at Amelia's with my wife's
family and the restaurant had a different dish for everyone, which each person loved. The waiter was very helpful with recommendations, which were spot on. I highly recommend the cod. Also love the chickpea/mash your own hummus spread in place of traditional butter or oil to accompany the table's bread."
Dined on 2/8/2014
I went to Amelia's with 3 other
women. We shared laughs, apps, drinks and dinner. It was a great night! Many delicious things on the menu and we always enjoy the chickpea and bread that comes out before your apps."

Friendly and fun staff. Foodie
quality food and presentation. Lovely early Sunday evening with friends and family. Definitely will go again to try more menu items. (The arugula salad was devine - the herb fried chicken with brie/potatoes - yummy.) Special cocktails and deserts for friends' tastes. I went with the wine and was quite happy."

It'd been a while since I'd seen a
couple of my girlfriends, who are from Manhattan. So I suggested we meet up in the middle - in Jersey City since I was coming from Central Jersey (but am formerly of JC). Easy ride to the Exchange Place PATH, where I picked them up. They both loved the food choices at Amelia's and said, the good was great & at a wonderful price compared to Manhattan prices! Once we'd settled in, took a while for staff to take our orders. The food made up for it. Also loved the muffins at the beginning! Brunch/lunch items -- so many choose from . . . & all tasty. I had the yummy crab cake sliders, which I couldn't even finish . . . ended up wrapping one up to take home."

Amelia's in my go-to brunch spot.
I've had several different items on the menu and am never disappointed - everything from the chicken and waffles to the salmon eggs benedict is delicious. Plus, you can't beat their 4 dollar bloody marys. I recommend this place to everyone."
Dined on 1/5/2014
I have been to Amelia's a few
times, and I keep coming back because I really enjoy the food here. However, my biggest complaint with the restaurant is how the space bringing out the food. The appetizers came out very quickly, which was great. But, 10 minutes after receiving my appetizers, I was given my entree. I wasn't even halfway through my appetizer. By the time I got to my entree it was cold. It also makes you feel rushed, when I came here to have a good meal and a few drinks with my husband. The wait staff is very nice, attentive and apologetic, but each time I come here the exact same thing happens. Next time I will say something before I order to avoid the disappointment. Otherwise, I really enjoy this restaurant."

the restaurant did not have enough
heat on when we arrived - it was cold -"

We were early of our reservation
but had to wait. My omelette tasted fine but was tepid. No hash browns was a downer. My sparkling wine was tasty and reasonable. The bear cub bartender is cute and very friendly."

We came, we ordered, and we
recieved a cold meant to be hot plate of eggs and bacon. The toast was hard. The food tasted good but it was cold. Waiter was great in handling that issue."

Amelia's never disappoints. Easily
the best brunch spot in JC, the menu is amazing and the food is always delicious."

This was our second time at
Amelias and it continues to amaze. The craft beer selection is small (6-8) but varied, which is good. The food is fantastic! I had the herb fried chicken with gruyere potatoes and it melted in my mouth. The prices are average for this type of place. I highly recommend it!"

Great food. Great service. Only
issue was a child that was making too much noise, crying and fussing"
Dined on 9/14/2013
We visit Amelia's frequently!
Service is sporadic, sometimes really great sometimes over-eager and under-educated. Food is consistently fun and Good! Rotating beer list is fun-I'd recommend this restaurant to any friends/couple/group for a fun, casual dinner or brunch!"

Would go again in a heartbeat.
Delicious brunch with unique options."

The food is surprisingly good!
Inside was a bit too noisy and outside they let people smoke and there are benches right near where people smoke. The bar is also basic and instead of having a good selection of scotch or bourbon or whatever, they have several varieties of flavored vodka. We had a good meal and an okay time but had to leave more quickly than we would have due to the gathering cloud of smoke."
Dined on 8/18/2013
I took my daughter (8) here for
dinner. She loves making hummus at the table, and adores the kid's pizza entrée. I enjoyed the crostini, but the arugula salad ROCKS."
