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.
Love that they allow dogs. Love the courtyard. Unfortunately the food is mediocre and the service is inattentive.
Great atmosphere, delicious food!
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.
The courtyard is lovely if weather permits.
This was our first trip to Café Amelie and we found the location was good, the atmosphere warm and friendly, the service and food were both excellent. We highly recommend Café Amelie!!
Enjoyed our meal in the courtyard. It was a beautiful setting for conversation. The food was delicious. The three of us each got something to share so we could all try.
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.
Food, service, and atmosphere were great. Only marred by a terrible mojito (maybe the worst I’ve ever had).
A beautiful day in the beautiful patio.
Awesome food, service and ambiance. We will be returning!
It was delicious I would recommend it to anyone!
Food, ambiance, and service were all fantastic. Great cocktail menu!
Visiting Nola for the weekend. This is our favorite restaurant here. We eat here every time we visit Nola
This restaurant is incredible. It is a little oasis in the French Quarter complete with a beautifully landscaped courtyard. Joshua the manager was so helpful and the waitress we had made our experience even better.
Great food, good service. The special pasta didn't live up to my expectation though.
Food was outstanding. We sat inside and our table overlooked the courtyard. Service was friendly and good. The chairs needed to be recovered and the three were several flies.
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.
Awesome setting in the courtyard. They got us in early when another reservation cancelled. Muffuletta was best ever.
The service was great and the food was even better!! We sat outside and it was truly beautiful with the lights and fountains. The waitress was so sweet and helpful and it wasn’t noisy at all. A cute spot
Food is great regardless of where you sit, however if you sit inside you will just be jealous of the folks in the courtyard. Best al fresco in the city.
Very accommodating, even with a summer rain shower! Had an amazing time and is now number 1 in our list for outdoor eating in the city!
The atmosphere is wonderful! The food was fabulous! Service was just okay, nothing special.
The food was very good (I had the tuna) but nothing overly special. The ambiance and the outside courtyard seating was amazing at night, however. Very quiet and beautiful with twinkling little lights, a fountain, greenery, and quiet (despite being fairly close to everything).
This was the best meal in New Orleans! We came for lunch and sat outside in the beautiful courtyard. We ordered the shrimp and grits, poutine, and gumbo which were all delicious! Definitely would come again and recommend to others.
Wonderful location. Great atmosphere. Amazing food.
Delicious food and great ambiance! Highly recommend when in New Orleans
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!
Everything is pretty great. The salmon and Shrimp and grits are our favorites. And both times very fortunate to have Michael as our server. He’s the best.
It was a great location. Amazing food. Perfect ambiance with a slight breeze. One of our favourite spots all trip
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.
Cafe Amelie is the most romantic restaurant. It had wonderful ambiance. The garden is magic. The food is also delicious and they have great cocktails. Reasonably priced too. It made our trip so special.
Delicious food and the courtyard is beautiful! I will recommend Cafe Amelie to friends for sure. Such a nice departure from the chaos of Bourbon Street!
Magical evening in the courtyard with attentive service, fabulous cocktails, amazing food, and delightful ambiance at a reasonable price. Could not have been a better experience.
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.
Beautiful ambiance and the food couldn't be better!
We had a fabulous brunch, starting off with Bloody Mary drinks and the bubba grits dip. Our meals were just as tasty. A great way to spend the morning with friends.
The courtyard is lovely. Service was great. Reasonably priced food.
