Delightful food. Beautiful setting and great service. Best meal of our trip. Would definitely recommend going there
Friendly service. Romantic ambiance. Great food. Only negative is that the chairs were fairly unstable and not all that comfortable
Loved a Sunday brunch on the patio.great food and beverage. Would recommend and plan to return in the future
Charming spot for a wonderful meal!
Beautiful restaurant with great patio. Gumbo was good but our two pasta dishes pretty run of the mill.
This is such a lovely place for a date night. My husband and I were seated inside right next to the courtyard door so we got the best of both worlds (a/c and outdoor dining). The interior is quite small, so I imagine it fills up easily during warm months. This is a great spot for outdoor dining because the courtyard is quite large. The food was delicious and our server was great. We even received complimentary champagne for our anniversary, which was a real treat. I also loved their specialty cocktail menu. We will definitely go back!
Adorable, healthy & delicious! Glad we were able to eat at a local restaurant during our stay in New Orleans.
Nice quiet place to have dinner outside. Recommended by a friend, and would recommend to others.
Cafe Amelie is a stunningly beautiful Oasis in the middle of the French Quarter. Dining al fresco in the courtyard was THE way to experience it. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
This was our second time at Cafe Amelie. The first visit, in March, was exceptional in every way. This visit, in October, was average in every way. Not sure what the issues were but I guess everyone has an off night. The first visit was just my husband and me and we spent at least $250 and had no regret it was so above and beyond. The second visit was with another couple and we spent less than $200 total, that’s how little we enjoyed it compared to the first visit.
Just a magical evening. Wonderful server who did everything to make us welcome and comfortable.
The food and our server were really great - the hostesses were far from accommodating. We arrived on time and it was a very hot day. There were many open tables for our party of 5 yet they sat us in front of the one furthest from a fan. When a pregnant woman came to sit at a different table she moved the one fan we had barely blowing on us to blow on her. She was pregnant so we let it slide but I asked the hostess if we could relocate or even turn another fan so we could get some air our way and she said no she wouldn't move them. I then asked her then to re-seat us at another table closer to other fans and she said since we've already ordered she couldnt do that. I worked years in a restaurant and one of my guests is the owner of a popular bakery, so we understand how they work. This was just ridiculous. It was really disappointing that we could not be treated decently by the host staff who is the representative of a restaurant. While our server and the food was great we will not recommend the restaurant to our friends because of this experience.
Greeting was less than warm. Table not ready at booked time. Barman so overrun that in 15 minutes we managed to place an order. Then the waitress arrived but sadly the drinks ordered could not follow us. We we led to a table after a further 15 minutes we were introduced to a server. We placed the same drinks order it arrived. After this unpromising start things looked up the food was good and the setting was delightful. Perhaps some more staff training in welcoming and greeting guests would encourage return business. A first drink should not take more than half an hour.
Had a reservation for 6, last minute needed for 10. They were so gracious to help us out!!
Great food! Atmosphere!! Been going for 3 years and love it!!
Must place to eat!
Went for my husband's birthday. Fabulous food, service, and ambience. We're going to visit every time we're in NOLA.
The atmosphere outside was verg nice and made it worgh coming here. The food is quality and creative but many items on the menu included corn, which I am not a fan of. I ordered shrimp and grits which the only flavor was corn. My husband had a pork loin special and the flavor was very good
Not what I was expecting. The staff is not overly friendly, my French toast was burned, the patio is beautiful but the furniture is rickety and they use the one side for storage so looks junky, they played David Bowie instead of Jazz. Not the traditional upscale brunch I was looking for.
We have an annual trip with another couple to NOLA...have been doing it for years and did not know about Café Amelie. We have probably passed it many times but we finally made reservations after I studied restaurant reviews and Café Amelie was on the top 10 of several. It was excellent. Unfortunately, it was raining so we couldn't eat in the courtyard but inside was lovely. Our waitress was prompt and fun. We started off sharing the shrimp with a Satsuma glaze that was to die for. Then two of us has baked salmon with horseradish sauce that tasted excellent. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the sauce was perfect....one diner had the catfish and it looked good. It was blackened and served with a spicey tomato sauce that he seemed to enjoy. My husband had the salmon croquet appetizer for his dinner. It was huge and had a cream sauce as well. It was probably the only mediocre thing we ate. For dessert we shared a white layer cake with peanut butter icing in between the layers and then chocolate sauce poured over the top--it was highly excellent. The wine by the glass menu was good. All in all it was a great experience. I would love to go back and sit out in the courtyard.
Amelie baked gulf oysters, a la planca brussels sprouts, and Chef Jerry’s gulf shrimp and grits were absolutely amazing! We also had Cajun Country Poutine, but it was so hot (spicy) that it was almost unpalatable. Our sever was wonderful and the restaurant and courtyard were very aesthetically pleasing. You won’t be disappointed!
Food was good, waitress was not friendly especially in comparison to all the wonderful service staff in the city.
Shrimp and grits to die for! Everything was delicious though. Can't wait to go back!
Lovely courtyard dining. While food not really representative of New Orleans fare, but very well prepared. Service was great.
2nd time in NOLA and we just had to come back to this restaurant. Great service and great food. Great ambiance
The food was very good, and the atmosphere in the outdoor courtyard was very nice. My only minor complaint is that the chairs in the courtyard were not very comfortable.
Amazing staff! You walk into the gorgeous courtyard and are greeted by the warm and welcoming hosts, then the garden dining area is just FABULOUS!
Our service on Friday night was fantastic. We wanted for nothing as Michael was on top of everything. The courtyard was a great choice for the ambiance. The food was exceptional and the beverages paired nicely. We will make reservations here every time we visit the French Quarter.
Our f was shrimp and grits! The shrimps were cooked perfectly and the grits was creamy and seasoned perfectly.
Our server Michael was fantastic!
The initial contact with the hostess set a negative tone for the evening. The air was still, humid and hot and we had no idea we had to book a table INSIDE if we didn't want to sit in the courtyard. Instead of the hostess being understanding she said over and over again we had to request the inside. Her approach could have been "Sorry you are from out of town and didn't know this, if you could wait a few minutes, we'll accommodate you as quickly as possible." SHE SHOULD NOT BE IN FRONT OF THE PUBLIC WITH HER ATTITUDE. She put a damper on the evening. We did get a table inside thanks to another coworker who was at the desk. The food and service was excellent.
Cafe Amelie was an adorable oasis from all the activities of the French Quarter. I highly recommend sitting back and having a refreshing sparkling rose (although their cocktail of the day sounded spectacular).
Cafe Amelie presented old classic French charm in its decor. The food was aweso.e and the service was great. The ambiance was spectacular. Will return and yes recommend.
Food and service was outstanding. Had a group of seven and the restaurant would not split the bill. I I understand they don’t like to do this but customers are spending a large amount of money and should be able for the restaurant to split. If not, it should be noted on the website to be transparent.
Always enjoy visiting Cafe Amelie when visiting the French Quarter. Love dining in the courtyard. Always enjoy the variety of food options, daily specials, cocktail/wine/beer menu, and desserts.
We loved our experience on all levels! Great food, amazing setting and our server was the BEST!! Definitely recommend it and will be back again next time I’m in NOLA!
Everything was delicious!
Food was very tasty, and the wait staff was the best. Thanks for a great meal and a good time.
One of my wife's favorite places .Mine too. The staff and the surroundings are fantastic.
One of my very favorite restaurants in NOLA. Amazing food, staff and atmosphere!
Very nice experience at Café Amelie. The food was well cooked and obviously of quality ingredients. My only complaint would be to raise the A/C. I was VERY uncomfortably hot while trying to enjoy the meal.
The food here is wonderful. Husband and I had the Gumbo and Shrimp and Grits. Definitely a must to do while in NOLA.
Too noisy for a nice date night but then again it is New Orleans French Quarter
