Well, this message goes to the manager on call for the evening. How could you look me in the eye and suggest that I did not call and speak to one of your employees about bringing my own wine and paying your $25 corkage fee...I would also bet if I was to call right now someone would say the same. Also, the same manager offered to buy us a drink...or take care of our appetizer...never happened. Service was slow and unattentive. My table had empty drink glasses and finished appetizer dish on the table and our waiter and the manager didn’t bother to bus the table. The wine glasses were dirty and still had remnants of lipstick on them. Not like our waiter would notice...as he spilled wine on me while pouring the first glass. Our reservation was for 7:45pm and literally we didn’t get our appetizer to the table until 9pm...and our waiter still hadn’t taken our dinner order. Never again for this poorly managed and hectic place.

We got ther early and they said we could sit but we opted for a drink at the bar first. Was no problem. Bartender was very good. We sat at the end of the bar so we were mear the service bar. All the staff seemed happy and friendly several made recommendations when they heard it was our first time there. Room was a bit noisy (upstairs) as the floors are tile and walls are brick or glass. Service was vey good. Food was pretty good but we didnt order anything too fancy, either. Deviled eggs were good. Will go again.

Even though we had a reservation when we arrived all visible tables were occupied. The host told us it just filled up and offered us a table downstairs by the restrooms in a stuffy damp room rather that the bistro room we had a reservation in. What is the point of making a reservation if walkins are seated in the prime tables. Fortunately a server offered us a table in the bistro if we were willing to wait until they finished dessert. To summarize, the host was terrible at his job and the server was wonderful.

I came here on rest week, and had ordered before but never been. Service and place were good but the food was a bit disappointing! Nothing special, just plain good.

Really good food, really good service. Went for lunch. Was really good experience. Would stay away from Apple cobbler(it needed a whole stick of butter as Paula Deen would say) and go for tiramisu! Would definitely go back.

I had been to America's a few times before, but this is the first time during restaurant week. Our server was attentive and fast. The food was great. We will be going more often.

I had the crostini. I chose six different ones. All were fantastic! My favorite two were the lump crab and the basil tomato. (By the way our server recommended my 2 favs). Presentation was beautiful!

Overall, a good restaurant at a reasonable price. The food is acceptable and the service kind and efficient. The cadre is also nice. A great option in Jersey City.

Went for a Birthday Brunch. Everything was wonderful from the drinks, to the Lobster Benedict (and one friends who LOVES the grits!). Definitely a favorite neighborhood place.

We have had brunch at Amelia's three or four times now. The service has been consistently excellent and the food is delicious without being pretentious. This time all three of us were vegetarians and there were plenty of choices for us. Andres was our server and he was attentive and kept our coffee mugs full. We appreciate that the $4 mimosas and bellinis are never stingy on the wine. We will be back for sure!
