A real gem
Amazing, prompt service. Great vibe and music. Food portions for a tappas restaurant were considerably bigger than I expected and everything we ordered was incredibly tasty. Will be back soon.

Great find in the city!
Great little wine bar. had a great variety of food that, I felt, was more than a step above typical bar food. I would recommend this place for its great wine selection and atmosphere!

Great wines and great food!
I had such a great time at Amélie wine bar! It’s definitely the great place for a Friday night.We ordered also a plateau apéro followed by a couple of appetizers, tapas and desserts. All was really tasty! The service was pretty good too; our server was very attentive, always refilled our glasses of water or made sure that we had enough bread on our table.
After dinner, we moved to the bar and enjoy the scene better. The wine list was pretty impressive but a really knowledgeable bartender with a charming French accent helped us pick a nice wine a Tudor Pinot Noir. We had fun mingling with people.
Overall we had a very pleasant night and cannot looking forward to going back to Amélie next week for another "wine tasting” ;-)

Amelie is a Winner
Five Shining Stars for Amelie!
Every city deserves a great wine bar like Amelie. Maybe the best kept secret in SF.
Concierges are all over this place. They love sending their guests here.
Here are My Top 5 Reasons why Amelie deserves 5 Stars:
5) Happy Hour 530-7pm $10 for 3 Glasses of Wine
4) They serve great Food
3) Amelie has a huge selection of European wines as well
2) It's like Paris in the middle of San Francisco
1) It's Always FUN. Lots of Women and stylish Men
Amelie is a Fun wine bar to visit with your friends. It's got a very young and vibrant vibe and gets packed and loud later on at night. They have DJ's and Live Music on Weekends. I just follow their Facebook page for updates.
Remember to check in at the back dining counter

My Favourite wine bar in the city!
I have been coming here for over two years since a friend recommended it to me and I have always had a fantastic experience. The bartenders and waiters make you feel welcome and comfortable and special. I find they are so accommodating, I always make it a point to tip at least 25-30%. Their food is delectable and they always have the best wines and a great variety. Being European, I also feel very happy to have found a place where I can meet many other people from my background. I would recommend this place to anyone who is interested in having a chill relaxed lounging and wine tasting experience!

Great wine bar
I love Amelie and cannot sing its praises enough. Good luck going after 7 or 8 without a reservation, though, this place gets crowded. Try the 3 cheese plate - it comes with delicious accoutrements. The wine flights are fun as well - smooth operator is my favorite.

Great food, surprising wine service
We visited Amelie and had the opposite experience of that expected. Thought we would enjoy great wine, service and education, with good food. Instead, we had great wine, fair wine service, no wine ed and great food. Expectations for wine service/ed were likely uninformed (but it's a wine bar, right?). No mats with wine names or descriptions (wine menu taken when we ordered). The waiter quickly placed each wine (3 in each of 2 flights) down, quickly mentioned what they were (did not agree with my recollection of the menu), and off he went. The food (salmon tartare, flatbreads, raviole), however, was great, although we received the wrong dessert (ordered "6 pieces of chocolate," received creme brulee - looked great, we devoured - same price).

Laid back service, generous
Laid back service, generous wine pours, nice food. Wish they were in my neighborhood...

Went here for girl's night and had so much fun. Our table was not ready so the host offered us a glass of champagne while we wait! What a great idea. That was just the beginning. All their wines and champagnes are great and the small plates are delicious to share. Dont skip the dessert special.

A little piece of Paris in SF
Excellent wine selection, very friendly staff, small normal human portions (as opposed to the unappetizing huge portions served in most US restaurants which serve quantity over quality). Felt like being back in Paris.

Oh la la, like being in Paris.
I was very happy with all the wine I tried in the flight my server recommended, and reordered from that selection. Charcuterie and cheeses were good, as was pâté. I would loved to have tried more of the food, but I wasn't hungry anymore. Salads looked good if you're into lighter fare. just a prefect spot for two friends to catch up over good solid food selections and a terrific choice of wines. Look forward to going back.

Lucky to be neighbors . . .
Nice to be able to walk to such a friendly neighborhood location. We had somehow missed giving Amelie a try despite their seven (7) year history. Glad we did.
Service is prompt, courteous, helpful. Flatbreads are very light and tasty - a must try. The cheese and wine selection are great.

Excellent meat and cheeses. Can't have a conversation!

Amelie is very good. tables are very small and is more a small plate seen. not a place to go if you for comfort food. wine list was okay not great but they have many to choose from. overall good place

Great Atmosphere, great wine
The experience was great, the food was just okay, the cheese options and flat bread are quite tasty. However the rillete was a bit more dry than we had hoped.
Wine list was fantastic and a good price.
Would recommend for appetizers and wine

Great little spot!
A girlfriend and I made a reservation at 8pm on Saturday. By the looks of how crowded it was, I'd say we would not be sitting anytime soon. However less than 10 minutes later, we were shown to our table. And not before the gentleman hosting made sure we had wine in hand to visit while waiting. Flatbread was tasty, but the ravioli that isn't really ravioli with truffles - DIVINE.
The place is a bit loud - but in a fun way.
