    I was very impressed with Amelia Genes! The service and food were excellent. Every selection was definitely an experience to our palate. We ordered an item from every coarse including a dessert. I highly recommend!

    We had an excellent anniversary dinner at Amelia Gene’s. Our server Antonio was very knowledgeable about the menu, made helpful suggestions, and was attentive without being intrusive. The bread service was a delicious buttermilk biscuit which should be on your brunch menu. (Suggestion: open for brunch). I had the grilled octopus (best I’ve had in a long time), the shrimp tortellini (surprisingly high shrimp to pasta ratio), and the elk short rib (fall off the bone fork tender). The carrot cake for dessert was surprising light given the number of layers. We look forward to our next meal. Thanks!

    The ambiance and service were top notch, but plan accordingly. This is a leisurely dinner event! The food was quite good but for the prices I expected a bit more flavor. Disappointed that the cheese cart was unavailable due to a lack of bread (?); considering it was only 7 on a Friday night I thought that was rather poor planning to be out of one of the starring attractions that early.

    Amelia Gene's is amazing. If this restaurant was in LA it would have a Michellen Star.

    This is a perfect downtown spot to go to before a show at the Orpheum or to grab a cocktail to end your evening. The attention to detail with all of our food choices were superb. Also, they have a well rounded bourbon list as well. Definitely would visit again!
