Amelia’s Bistro is a great local restaurant. The waiters and waitresses are kind, and the food and appetizers are great!

I've been here for brunch many times( brunch has been good), never for dinner. I figured I'd try dinner out here..

I will never go back to this restaurant, that's how disappointed I was. I had to send my steak back because it wasn't cooked right ( not a big deal) however, when they brought me a new(grilled) steak it just tasted horrible. I don't know if they cook it at the right temperature or maybe the quality of the steak was not good. Or maybe both. I've never left a steak unfinished in my life. Outback cooks a much better steak.. My fiances Chilean sea bass was rubbery and the quality over all was not good. This not what you expect for $27 entrees. My inlaw had the Gnocchi, and he didn't even eat it.. He maybe had 3 bites.. On the plus side, the bread and appetizers were good. Service was so so ..

Food was okay. Service was very bad. Our waiter was very slow. Had to ask another waiter to place the order and then for a check.

The lobster hash and crab cake Benedict was amazing! Also very much enjoyed the $4 bellinis and mimosas. All and all a great brunch spot!

Amelia's is consistently good. Love the small plates and our server Eric was very nice on my latest visit.

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 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.

Very good selection of craft beer! From north to south! Willing to modify menu items and waitress was knowledgeable!

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.
