The food, service and cozy atmosphere were perfect. I had the best roasted salmon I’ve ever tasted. Just a wonderful place.

Ask for Ashlee. She’s an amazing server! Try the beef and duck meatloaf. And the house salad! The lightly fried goat cheese was wonderful!

Good service and excellent food. One of our guests ordered the special which was served 15 minutes after the ; a source of real discomfort. No explanation was given.

Le Clos continues to be our favorite restaurants. We are repeat customers and have never been disappointed in this small charming place. They have a great menu and wine selection. This is a small restaurant so bare in mind the ambient noise level can be high during busy times.

My wife and I were visiting Amelia Island and wanted an upper scale (but not mega-bucks) place for dinner. Quiet, refined and with great food and a nice selection of wines. We were not disappointed.

The menu was a diverse selection of entrees - shrimp, scallops, salmon, pork tenderloin, steak, duck ... I had the duck. Amazing is the only way to describe it. Cooked perfectly medium rare and served with mushrooms, a ginger soy reduction, garden vegetables and chive whipped potatoes. My wife had the roasted North Atlantic salmon served in a (mild) garlic cream of shallots, Sun-dried tomato and spinach. Also with whipped chive potatoes. Both delicious and cooked to perfection.

I had the duck with Tribute cab (Sonoma). The cab worked with the duck because Sonoma cabs drink more like a gentle Merlot, yet with more complexity. A good Pinot Noir would have also been nice I think. (They had a Ron Rubin Russian River Valley Pinot that looked nice.)

My wife had the King Estate Pinot Gris (Williamette Valley) with her salmon and cream sauce. The choice worked well for her, but I would have chosen a more substantial Chardonnay.

Meals ranged from $20-30 and single glasses of wine from $8.50-$15, although most were about $10.00. So really, the food and drink are most reasonably priced and the quality outstanding.

If I lived in Fernandina Beach, I would go back and try everything. You should also.

We were looking for a nice, but not too formal, dinner out while visiting Amelia Island. Le Clos felt very comfortable. The service was friendly but also attentive and added to a relaxed feel. The food was excellent. Some of the best escargot I’ve tasted. The steak au pointe was excellent. The wine pairings were both delicious and reasonably priced. I would have gone back for breakfast if they offered such a thing. This was a great meal with great service but not overly formal. We sat for dinner at 6 and the indoor dining was busy, but conversation was easy. Highly recommended.

The tables are too close together and the noise level is way too loud. We had a 7 pm reservation on Tuesday evening and while it's nice to see a busy restaurant it was difficult to have a conversation. Wine is overpriced. All the food was good and desserts were delicious.

Outstanding food! Service very attentive but not overbearing. Nice atmosphere but once the place filled up the noise level was high making a quiet table conversation difficult. First time at Le Clos and I will definitely return.

We fancy ourselves hard to impress as we travel very frequently. The food was outstanding in a nice atmosphere. Service is what one typically finds in American restaurants. Interruptions, plate grabs (twice on this occasion) and the hustle out the door for the next seating. But, if you're looking for a very good meal, very well prepared, I trust that Le Clos will not disappoint.

Love this place! The only objection was in seating right by the front door and so close together. We arrived as it opened with another group ahead of us were waIting. We were invited in for seating promptly. The first group ahead of us was seated at a table right by the front door. We were then shown to our table for two right beside the first group in the front near the door. It’s a very small restaurant of only 14 tables but no other tables were occupied yet. We promptly requested and were shown to another table that was not so tight. There were 13 other tables to be seated and I think they should not seat people so close or by the front door when there are 13 other tables to choose from before others even started to arrive, especially with a reservation.
The food and service was, as usual, outstanding.

Very average meal. Service was ridiculously immature for a restaurant that bills itself as fine dining. Waitress spilled wine while serving it and then rubbed it around the table cloth trying to dissipate the droplets. Didn’t wipe down the glass she spilled it on. Didn’t so much as apologize as tried to laugh it off. Food was fair to good but not anywhere near what they charged for it.

Food was to die for. Everything was so rich and delicious. Service was impeccable. This dinner was definitely a treat for our family and the atmosphere is very cozy and inviting. The escargot was unbelievable...so buttery and garlicky. The fried green tomatoes could be made into a main dish. They were wonderful. You must reserve at least a few days in advance. Don’t miss this beautiful little gem on Amelia Island.
