Our family dined at Amelie and had a wonderfully meal. The host could not have been more accommodating and treated my twin girls as if they were regulars. Great casual spot with a great wine and charcuterie selection as well as delicious pizzas.

Amelie has always been my favorite place to catch up with friends and have a glass (or two...or three) of wine. The people who work there are incredibly sweet and accommodating, as well as knowledgeable of the wines that they offer. There isn't any pretentious vibe at all, which I find to be common in most wine bars. The menu is always changing, but that keeps things fresh and exciting every time you go. The overall vibe here is very hip and European. I've always recommended this place to friends and I find that they always enjoy coming back!

Love Amelie. Great wine menu, great cheese and charcuterie. Perfect for a date or wine with friends. They have good wine flights at happy hour as well. Not a huge food menu, but great place for small bites and wine.

The French style tapas (finger foods or beer or wine foods) are excellent, reasonablely priced, especial if go during Happy Hours (5pm-7pm). RVSP is recommend because seats are limted if you have a party of over 5 or more people. The wine flights are an excellent value and great for matching with their vaiety of foods from escargot, mushroom flata bread, chicken pate, to their cheese board (formage) with slices of salami, cold cuts, mustards and relishes. Great value and bang for the buck.

Way too noisy-the music was too loud to have a conversation. The people at the table next to us were bothered by the loud music too. We asked twice and they asked at least once to have it turned down.

Love love love Amelie. Like taking a mini vacay to Paris. Amazing sommeliers, orgasmic food, top shelf wine for every taste, wonderful music, sexy atmosphere. You will make friends and family at this place. I must emphasize to let one of their sommeliers to choose a wine for you even if you think you're not a wine drinker. They will find something you love and come back for.

Amelie was very accommodating. I made a reservation and had an unexpectedly large party but the staff did their absolute best to make sure everyone was comfortable. My only small point is that I wish we could've ordered a glass of wine while waiting for the table to open since I came a little early but it was also a very busy night so I understand that the staff may not have been able to do so even if that was an option.

Amelia has a great wine list and good ambiance (plus, super convenient location on Polk). The food flavors were really good (burrata was excellent) but it came with barely any bread compared to the cheese ratio and service was slow enough that it made it a little frustrating. Still a good spot for wine night with friends - but wouldn't take a date there.

Amelie is a standout spot for happy hour, but the menu also suggests that any meal would probably still be a value. Happy hour offers a great price for a custom flight. The happy hour flatbread was also delicious, and the salads were copious and delicious. Service was warm and also in French when we requested it--merci! I can't wait to go back to try more wines and French food items!

Have been to their New York restaurant and wanted to try San Francisco for a family get-together. Had a great time, enjoyed the mood, and the tapas nature of the menu. We tried many of the offerings and liked everything, especially the quiche (very rich). Good wine wine as well.

Amazing ambiance, food and service for a fun evening out on Polk. Started with two glasses of Malbec and a delicious cheese plate that came with honey and fruit dips and a sack (yes, a sack) of warm bread. Then had the beat salad (which came in a mason jar!) and the cured salmon. Amazing attention to detail in plating and flavors. Ended with the fudge pieces for dessert, which were so rich and a delightful surprise from what we had thought it would be. Will definitely be back!
