Nestled in the historic 150-year-old Princess of Monaco Courtyard and Carriage House on Royal Street in the French Quarter, Café Amelie is a rare combination of superb Louisiana fare served in a lush, enchanting New Orleans courtyard setting.
There is an $8.00 per person charge for all desserts served that are not from our kitchens.
Cute courtyard & comfortable, welcoming vibe, but for these prices & this reputation i expected much better service, the food to come out hot and the atmosphere to be a bit more polished/refined.
Brussel sprouts with dates and bacon were delicious, the roast chicken was just ok though the mashed potatoes they came with were terrific, the gumbo was served lukewarm & tasted okay, salmon cake was not tasty (like the breaded canned tuna croquets my mom used to torture me with), but the sandwiches were fabulous.
Overall the food we decent, but not the reviews & prices lead us to expect. The biggest letdown was the indifferent & inefficient service.
Oh well, at least our experiences at Cochon, MoPho, Brennan's & Meril met expectations.
We enjoyed a wonderful meal in the downstairs dining room indoors. They have a lovely patio but weather prevented dining there. Space was cozy and intimate, noise level moderate. Menu not extensive but everything we had was delicious!
The wait staff was the best we had in our three evening of New Orleans dining. Professional, friendly, attentive. Strongly recommend!
Great ambience and service. Everything else sub par considering the hype.. very expensive for what you get! Such a shame it's so overrated..
We love Cafe Amelie mostly for the ambience, but the food is delicious too. We recommend it to all of our out of town guests.
Fantastic food, atmosphere, and people! We loved the brunch experience!
The most beautiful place I ate at in New Orleans! Service was extremely friendly and welcoming. Shrimp and grits were really good. I got the crawfish pasta and I was very confused. The "crawfish" tasted and looked like canned sardines. Grey, smashed, salty meat. Not plump, red crawfish tails. I would definitely return though.
Loved the food!!! Loved the setting!! We will be back!
Delicious and a beautiful spot!
We visited Cafe Amelie’s in Friday, February 15, with our children and their spouses. The restaurant was in beautiful garden setting. Our waitress was very kind and helpful. We ordered one of every appetizer on the menu. They were ok. The poutine was dry and over cooked. The burrata was flavorless. The brussels sprouts were well done. Very flavorful! My husband and I had the ahi tuna entree. It had a nice Asian flavor but it was delivered on a bed of linguine. Our kids entrees looked great - shrimp salads and pork chops - and they enjoyed them. We had a great bottle of wine and a good dessert. It was a great evening but it did rate high on the foodie scale.
Great flavors but pork chops and pork tenderloin were a little too dry for our taste. Hand crafted cocktails and poutine were lovely. I would go again because of the court yard and friendly staff.
The food was good, but the location was beautiful. The courtyard is an amazing place to enjoy a meal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend and will almost certainly be visiting again.
Wonderful lunch. Fabulous food and great service. Can’t wait to return!
Valentines Day dinner with my girlfriend; Sat in the amazing court yard. Food, drinks, service and ambiance were all top notch!
Food was not hot & was over cooked. We had Salmon & pork chops both over cooked therefore over priced for the quality of the food, ambiance was nice but very disappointed!
Wonderful first meal in New Orlean’s. Food was delicious and service was exceptional. We loved it!!!
Amazing atmosphere and location
The ambiance is great, so cozy and the courtyard is beautiful. Service and food both excellent
Nice atmosphere and great service but the food just was lacking in flavor
Bland pasta. Tough pork chop with gunky sauce. Pitiful wine selection, waitresses in old jeans and tee shirts, table cleaning staff in hoodies, seriously? Had a fab dinner at GWFins for only $10 more, and that included a bottle of wine. Skip it.
Cafe Amelie is in my top 5 favorite New Orleans restaurants. It never disappoints! They consistently server fresh food that is expertly prepared. It is one of my favorite brunch spots for the great food- shrimp and grits, burrata and crostini, chicken and waffles- and wonderful craft cocktails! The courtyard is a perfect setting to enjoy the food. Their signature drink, the Amelie is one of my favorite drinks anywhere, but their other drinks are just as tasty. The servers are friendly and attentive, without being overbearing. I highly recommend Cafe Amelie to my local friends and visiting friends. If you want amazing food, in a lovely New Orleans setting with great drinks, then Amelie is for you!!
Real N.O. bistro feel with fare that’s scrumptious, overall amazing N.O. experience.
Shrimp and grits! That’s all you need to know.
Expensive but worth it! Amazing atmosphere and so beautiful for dates! The food was to die for and I would go back in a heartbeat if I could afford it.
Overall it was ok. The website showed plenty of Gluten Free options but then when we got there we found out the website was incorrect. Our waitress didn’t seem too concerned with our dilemma and very quickly rattled the few gluten free options on the menu. Kind of out and overall damper on the experience.
Very cozy and romantic setting in middle of French Quarters. Excellent service and menu selections with big portions. Baked oysters were great.
Very charming outdoor courtyard. Staff very personable and attentive. I had the veggie pasta which was excellent. Spouse had chicken with potatoes and green beans, which had a great sauce. Highly recommend!
Beautiful setting outside in garden area. Food was delicious!
One of my favorite restaurants with outstanding food and cocktails. Love the ambiance and sitting in the courtyard is always a great time.
Always fabulous. Food is delicious, atmosphere is perfect, and the service is pleasant. Always a favorite when I'm in NOLA. I'll be back!
Went there for my birthday and it was fantastic! Definitely try their bread pudding, it is out of this world!
Beautiful, nice ambience and good service. The food is good but no outstanding.
We have been dining at Cafe Amelie for years. Our 2nd home is around the corner on Chartres so it's a short walk to dinner when we come over. I have always enjoyed the food. The menu changes from time to time although not often, still the food is always good. The specials are usually creative and yummy too. The wine list is a tad small and the service vacillates between outstanding & mediocre... but nothing to be outraged about. I know you guys do well with 'private parties' but this does interfere with making a reservation for dinner often enough to make it a hassle. (Something to consider?) Anyway... Cafe Amelie is wonderful and we will keep y'all on our 'favorites' rotation of high quality places in the Quarter... Ciao bella…
lovely romantic courtyard setting with wonderful food. Absolutely fabulous :)
Everything was perfect. The garden seating is delightful and everything on the menu looked delicious. My shrimp and grits was tasty. The shared side of Brussels sprouts was phenomenal. One of my favorite places to eat in the Quarter.
Music was a bit dated...we were more in a Mick mood but still lovely dining on the patio!
I brought my wife to Cafe Amelie to celebrate her birthday while on our trip to NOLA. The food and especially the atmosphere were excellent. My only critique was that our waitress didn’t bring anything after the meal to celebrate my wife’s birthday. She knew it was her birthday, but at the end of the meal, when she brought our bill, she said that she would have given us a dessert on the house but we didn’t order a dessert. :-( I’ve been to dinner plenty of times when no dessert was ordered and the restaurant still offered SOMETHING to mark the special occasion like a birthday or anniversary. And to make the comment after the fact seemed to make things worse for me. Otherwise, it was a good experience.
Aurora was the sweetest waiter and the food was amazing as usual!!
Charming small restaurant with beautiful courtyard. Terrific gumbo. Thoroughly enjoyed the Pig and Fig sandwich—roast pork, fig jam. Shrimp and grits also top notch. Will go back next trip.
Loved the food! Excellent wait staff too! It's a not to miss restaurant!
