For over 20 years this has been my wife’s and my favorite restaurant on the island, and we have always been to Le Clos on Valentines Day. Unfortunately this year was different. Most of the staff was new and although they worked hard, the impression was one of mild chaos. We were not seated for over 20minutes after our confirmed reservation. Worse, the food was strictly mediocre, particularly the pasta which was bland and uninteresting. The menu has not changed appreciably in many years so the selections are becoming a bit tiresome. I’m sorry to write this review because we have truly loved this restaurant over more than two decades, but management must recognize the dining experience is no longer what it used to be.

Must preface these remarks by saying it was Valentine's Day and very busy. We did have a reservation but our table looked like an afterthought being placed right in front of the entrance way in the path of every waitress. It was cold and uncomfortable.
Service was slow, meals placed in front of the wrong individuals and the food not particularly hot (maybe that was from the cold of the front door).

Our first time there, did enjoy the Bordeaux but not eager to return.

We have been to LeClos a number of times and each time have enjoyed the food, setting and wine selections.The menu has remained fairly standard over the years but is decidedly French and is definitely the best French food on Amelia Island. There are new wines introduced as well as the excellent standbys. We had a Davis Bynum Pinot Noir from Russian River area of Sonoma, and it superbly complimented the tuna that two of our party had and the duck that I ordered. Prices are fair for the quality of food presented. We will definitely look forward to returning.

A great place for a date on the island, reminded me of a classic French bistro. Excellent service and food. I can see things getting tight on a busy night but not the case for us. We will definitely return, so many more items to taste! The Escargot is a must!

Never disappointed! The food is great, the service is great, the ambiance is great, and even though it gets loud, and you sit rather close to people, the noise turns into static and you end up feeling like the only person in the room.

The food, even with the shortened menu for Amelia Restaurant Week was wonderful with our tenderloins cooked perfectly.

Only detector was the high noise level and the frenetic activity of the staff.

We will return.

We ordered off the restaurant week menu. My husband and I had the salad with the thin cut apples. It was light, tart and delicious. We each ordered the fillet mignon which was one of the best steaks that we’ve had on the island. My husband had the homemade chocolate cake with vanilla bean ice cream and I had the baked apple with almonds and honey. His dessert was decadent with a rich chocolate topping. My Apple was a light finish for a perfect meal.

Le Clos is always our go to restaurant for special occasions and especially when friends come from large metropolitan areas abundant with fine restaurants. As usual, the noise level and packed in tables are an issue. It was a chilly night and wish I had reserved a table NOT just inside and next to the front door.
The food per usual was plated beautifully and tasted as good as it looked.

Le Clos was our first outing during Restaurant Week in Fernandina; a great start! The food is exquisite and beautifully presented. The duck was particularly delicious as were the wines available by the glass . The vichyssoise was about the best I had ever had! Mitsy was a first-class server and very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list!

LeClos is a small French bistro on Amelia Island. Great atmosphere. Very nice menu. Flounder was prepared perfectly. Placed over mashed potatoes seemed a little odd. Steak frittes were very good. A little to rare which I asked for. Expected skinny frittes both got regular fries. Sauce and mushrooms very good. Service is very good. Somewhat pricey.

This has been a favorite of ours for years, and the first time we visited in some time. Loved the decor and ambiance, and choice of wine is exceptional. Wait staff is pleasant and helpful. While our food was good, it did not seem to our party to be as good in the past. While we enjoyed our evening, it did not seem to meet the memories we have of past times we have visited.
