Funky neighborhood gemFood is casual small plate style, but very good. Decor was trendy, but comfortable - very chill and casual. It's a little younger - twenty and thirty somethings mostly, but not exclusively. We sat at the bar and service was great, even when it got busier - and it does get busy. Wine list is filled with quality bottles to pair without going over the top. Solid price/value. We liked it enough that we're going to try the original in San Francisco.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAmelieThe staff were attentive, filling water glasses, checking with us, and overall super nice.
The food was very good. I had the trout with a very delicate sauce. The escargot was yummy
We had such a nice time
I would recommend to my friends6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFrench on 8th streetThe shoe stores may be leaving 8th street but that's ok if unique restaurants like Amelie move in. Three visits, all excellent. Food classic french bistro with a farm to table feel. wide selection of wines by the glass. Warm hosts.
Great spot in the center village feels far from the colllege scene. what spells the letters holding up the shelves at the bar?5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, but overrated.I heard a lot of fuss about how good Amelie is, but honestly I didn't see what all the fuss was about. The food was good, and I certainly enjoyed it, but I was not blown away. The service was rather inattentive. It was a Saturday night, so I suppose I understand, but it wasn't particularly crowded, and our server still wasn't really around. The decor and mood in this place is fantastic thought and it's a great date spot.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing restaurantThis restaurant is fantastic. The food and wine are wonderful.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLove love love it! Granted,Love love love it! Granted, I didn't the next day after 3 bottles between us. The staff is amazing and friendly and it's a neat spot in a great neighborhood with delicious, reasonably-priced wine!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWowWonderful service. I was blown away by the service, the food and the ambiance. A gem of a place.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFunGreat wine. Great food. Wonderful waiter.
Perfect for the ladies night out we had.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat findReally enjoyed my dinner here. The duck confit was excellent, as was the warm chocolate cake I had for dessert. The price was reasonable for French food -- especially for NYC which I complain about a lot. Space is limited so I would recommend making dinner reservations, even if it is just for two. Service was well timed and very friendly.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper friendly spot!I love Amelie.We have eaten there many times-very friendly,casual spot with great food and wine! Some nights they have music.Wonderful addition to neighborhood.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Happy Hour offeringsFlight of 3 wines off the regular wine list for only $10! And $6 each for Escargot & delicious Goat cheese apps. What more can you ask for?5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmelie reviewAmelie was an excellent choice for a night in the city. The food was outstanding - I shared a variety of orders with my family including steak, duck, frites, the warm goat cheese ball, escargot, creme brûlée, and more. Everything was cooked to perfection and the sauces on the meats were fabulous. The feel of the restaurant wasn't my favorite and isn't very kid - friendly, but it is ideal for a young hip crowd. Amelie was is without-a-doubt one of my favorite restaurants and now I eat there almost every time I go to the city. If you are looking for a fun restaurant where you'll want to order everything on the menu, Amelie is the place to go.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful wine bar with greatWonderful wine bar with great happy hour deals! The perfect spot to catch up with a friend and have some nibbles while enjoying a nice bottle of reasonably priced wine.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place was great! WentThis place was great! Went for happy hour and enjoyed wine flights on a Sunday evening (5:30pm). Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Live jazz music was very good. Crowd was lively. Food is more small plates, which make a perfect match with wine. Best part, three glasses of wine for $10! Definitely recommend. Will go back when in NYC.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the brunch!We have been here twice now for brunch and will recommend it to friends. It's a bit quirky with plastic-covered, album sleeve menus and paperbacks for check holders, but a sleek modern-chic decor. We especially liked the eggs benedict and croque-monsieur--have yet to try their French toast. Their cheese plates are a bit pricey, but include several excellent choices.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMlike the place. good food,like the place. good food, nice people and nice atmosphere.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFUN and Yummy food with great wine!We LOVED Amelie. It is VERY LOUD and seating is VERY CLOSE. This was our last nite in NYC and this is what we were looking for. They have a fabulous wine list by the glass. They also have great wine glasses and they give you a huge pour. We had the fois gras pate for an appetizer and our friends had the stuffed dates. Stuffed dates? Sounds weird. They were YUMMY! We all had the filet mignon for dinner. It was fabulous. We all thought it was our best meal of the trip. We will definitely go back when we are in NYC again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Small Plate RestaurantIt was a last minute decision after a matinee, we had our children with us and needed something "small" to eat. The food was fantastic, tons of flavor & everything we ordered was delicious! The service was friendly and VERY accommodating. After leaving NYC, this restaurant was one we are all still talking about. Needless to say, we left full and skipped dinner.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good.The food was very good.

The wines are good and decently priced and everything we ate was very very tasty. Last tim,e we had the raviolis which were quite very heavy but very delicious, delicious fresh oysters, equally delicious salads (Amelia and the smoked salmon salad) and very good ceviche. Friday night is pretty crowded but it's Friday night, what can you expect. The atmosphere is pretty nice too, the music not too loud. I will definitely go back over and over again.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat energy in the room andGreat energy in the room and a fresh approach to dining.
