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.

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 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!

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!

Completely enjoyed this neighborhood restaurant. Our server was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed charcuterie and the short rib lolly pops. The port chop special and braised short ribs were delicious and well prepared. Can't wait to return; one of the best places in JC!

Two of my colleagues and I -- on different teaching schedules -- are making an effort to get together at least monthly to socialize and discuss work issues. Amelia's was our second early evening out this semester and it was perfect for our purpose. Granted we arrived extra early, but even at 8, when we left, it was quiet enough for conversation without shouting. The food was excellent, two steaks cooked perfectly, though the pasta dish needed to be reheated since it was almost room temperature when delivered. The server was maybe a little too friendly, but he did bend over backwards to make sure everything went smoothly. Overall, Amelia's Bistro had everything we needed to combine serious and social discussion with good food and a convenient Jersey City location.

Met friends for brunch. Service was prompt, drinks and orders taken. Food came out reasonable quick, as did our drinks; however no water was delivered until very late into the meal and only upon request. Food quality met expectations. It was moderately busy, bustling but easy to carry on conversation. Overall was satisfied, I would go back.

Had the mozz, tomato and basil and mushroom flatbreads which were excellent, as were the tuscan white bean and manchego crostinis. Other dishes were also good. Server was friendly. Unfortunately, inside is way too dark and the music is too loud. Food is great and they could really aspire to more.

If I lived in the area, this would be my go to restaurant, great service, nice selection of drinks and food. We came here on Friday night for my mother's birthday celebration since our niece was cheering at a nearby stadium. Everything was great from appetizers, drinks, our entrees, and dessert.
