Please note that the courtyard is seated on a first come, first serve basis. A reservation does not guarantee seating in the courtyard but we will have a table available inside our beautiful, historic carriage house. Keep in mind during rainy/cold days we may utilize our upstairs Blue Room. There is no elevator access. If you have a preference, let us know when making your reservation.

We will hold your reservation for 15 minutes past your scheduled reservation time, after 15 minutes we will seat you at the next available time.

We normally allow reservation space for only 50% of the dining room to accommodate walk-ins.

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.

This is my favorite date spot in the city! The courtyard is dreamy and cozy—lots of tree cover and quiet fans facing almost every table keep it cool and breezy even on warm nights. The food and service are always great, too. String lights and background music add a lot of ambiance. Just love it here :)

We arrived 15 minutes early and were immediately seated in the beautiful courtyard. My wife and I both started with fig and goat cheese appetizer and two Orange Blossoms(excellent). We ordered the Sunny Up Cochon de Lait. Let me tell you how heaven tastes. Savory grits next to a portion of roasted suckling pig with two sunny side up eggs and andouille sausage red eye gravy. I was able to finish mine. I needed a two hour nap to recover. It was THAT good. Treat yourself.

We enjoyed a truly delicious meal in a wonderful outdoor setting. Could not have been nicer for our first night in New Orleans. If weather permits, the outside courtyard is the way to go. Salmon dish, lamb meatloaf and our appetizers were all cooked to perfection.

Would definitely go back!

Went for brunch. The front hostesses were not the friendliest. They did try to accommodate us as we were a larger party but seemed annoyed. The waiter was just ok. The menu online was different than the menu they had. They didn’t have options for those who have intolerances to certain foods. The outside dining was beautiful but did not make up for other short comings. Overall it was okay. I prefer the brunch spot Ruby Slippers over this one!

Beautiful courtyard setting is the backdrop for a wonderful dinner with a significant other or group of friends. Dine under twisting trees and vines with fountain and background music and evening torches. Loves the specials and surprised by the generous portions of food. Enjoyable time. Casual neat dress.

Called them at 8:38 to let them know we’d be a few minutes late to our 8:45 reservation. Arrived at 8:54 and were told the KITCHEN IS CLOSED.

If we were sat at 8:45 there’s a good chance my wife wouldn’t even know what she wants to DRINK better yet eat by 8:54. If you can’t provide service for your guests then why even make it an option on the website to book a reservation at that time.


We left.

A great place to eat and have a drink while visiting the French Quarter. Courtyard is beautiful and there are plenty of fans outside to cool you off. Strawberry salad and shrimp and grits were amazing. Cafe Amelie is in a great old house that takes you back in time as you walk through the door. Loved it!

My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing lunch recently. We were seated outside under a tree providing us with lovely shade on a very warm day. We ordered a lovely salad and a seafood with grits dish. We also shared a bread dish with goat cheese and fig jam. Delicious! We look forward to a return visit and an opportunity to explore the menu further.

The food was delicious. It was raining so we ended up inside at a table that had a constant stream of people going by so that’s why I rated the ambience lower. I would definitely return though.
