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.
Loved the food!!! Loved the setting!! We will be back!
Delicious and a beautiful spot!
Wonderful lunch. Fabulous food and great service. Can’t wait to return!
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!
Great food. Great service. Highly recommended.
Cafe Amelie has been my birthday lunch choice for the past 5 years and this past celebration on a cold rainy afternoon was phenomenal! Eliza, our server and Nate, our personal bartender made a dreary day fun. The food and service was fantastic as usual and Nate’s creativity behind the bar was exceptional! Thank you, and see you next year!
Recommended by a friend. Seemed like a "neighborhood" restaurant - comfortable & unpretentious. Cold night in New Orleans after the NFL officials stole the game from the Saints. My mind was on the game. Nevertheless, the Lamb Meatloaf was excellent. Was in a hurry to get home to my dogs, so took the chocolate dessert with me in a plastic container. Was great when eaten later that night. Service was good. The patrons were subdued so can't speculate on what usual noise level would be. I'd go back and recommend it.
Loved the Shrimp & Grits this time. This is the fifth time I have been and will definitely be back my next trip to The Big Easy.
Great cocktails and atmosphere. The food was fantastic in general but we had to send one enter back. It seemed like a fluke error and the waitress was very understanding. Highly recommend.
Not as stellar as times past
The venue is beautiful. We had the pork chops and it was to die for
One of my favorite places in the FQ. By far the most beautiful courtyard in FQ. Always great cocktails and menu is consistent. The specials always get me to try a new dish. HOWEVER......I came from Texas and recommend Cafe Amélie to friends based on the above and the Doberge cake. The fact that Doberge cake is no longer available gives me pause to return or recommend. Find someone else to bake Doberge cake.....but get it back on menu.
Our waitress was kind and attentive without hovering and the food was amazing! Will definitely be back!
