I primarily go there for the delicious and tender grilled octopus salad appetizer and also their marinated and grilled lamb chop lollipops. Both dishes are wonderful! In fact, the octopus is so that I have won converts over to try the dish, many who were very squeamish about it. Try the grilled octopus with a glass of their Kim Crawford Rose. It's perfectly paired!

My sister and I tried a pasta item we never had before, Bucatini with Shrimp, garlic butter, onions, aged parmesan, lemon, Saracco moscato wine. Unfortunately the onions and moscato makes the dish overly sweet. We both agreed that some garlic, maybe a bit of chopped tomato for acidity to would balance the rich sweet flavor would help. That was the first time I was disappointed in a pasta dish there. My brother-in-law had the Rigatoni Bolognese and my husband loves their short rib pappardelle dish. This is a neighborhood restaurant for us that we return to again and again for consistently great food and service.

All the food was excellent. Octopus tasted like grilled tuna (not squishy at all). Can’t go wrong with any entree - They were out of a lot on the wine list - but we did go on a Tuesday

We used to love Amelia’s. Everything used to be 5 stars, however our last few visits have been so disappointing. The service was top notch, but the food was not great. It wasn’t horrendous, but you can tell the quality has gone downhill fast, while they increased the prices. It’s at the point now where it’s just not worth the trip.

Ambiance and service is very good .... modern, upbeat and comfortable.

The young lady, who was our server, was excellent.

She was pleasant, attentive without being too overbearing, intelligent and her name is actually -- AMELIA...!!

One critique is that the noise level could be a bit lower. Hard surfaces on the walls and ceiling doesn't help the acoustics.

Another improvement they could make is that they do not have a HIGH quality Tequila at the bar. Ordered a classic Marguarita and had to settle for a tequila brand that WAS NOT 100% agave .... which is the STANDARD for a proper marguarita. All other tequila's are mostly cane sugar .... not good..!!

JUST THE WRONG NIGHT

I'VE BEEN HERE MANY TIMES AND IT'S USUALLY GOOD. THIS TIME IT WAS BUSY AND LOUD AND FOR WHATEVER THE UNEXPLAINED REASON WAS - OUR FOOD ORDER WAS EXTREMELY LATE TO THE POINT WE WERE READY TO LEAVE. AT THAT POINT THE FOOD WAS IRREVERENT .

Great food; excellent service. However, the place could really use some acoustic dampening. For a fine-dining restaurant, it's way too noisy.

I love the atmosphere, the calamari fritti, and chicken wings are delicious; this was my 2nd visit and it was less favorable than my first time. After the appetizers, it took 43 minutes to get our dinner, 6-ounce aged top sirloin & crab cake w/stuffed gnocchi, and it was cold on arrival. The waitress offered to have it heated (reheat a steak - really), the manager was less enthusiastic too, even though she agreed it was cold. It was my grand-daughter's birthday we were celebrating, so it was very disappointing for the amount of money we spent there.

Amelia's offers a very special experience on its stunning patio which is open throughout the summer to mid to late September. As soon as we were seated, water and a board of crispy wheat crackers accompanied by a container of a smooth cheese spread were brought to the table. No doubt on this very warm evening, we decided on two frozen alcoholic lemonades, one peach and one strawberry. They were delicious but on such a hot evening, the drinks needed to be consumed more quickly than I could possibly manage!! For appetizers, we split an order of arancini which were good in addition to a baby spinach salad mixed with arugula, dried apricots, craisins, oats 'n honey crunchy granola, kiwi & pineapple vinaigrette. It was rather unique and tasty. Hubby liked his entree entitled " Caserecci" the name of the type of pasta) which included smoked pancetta, English peas, a farm egg & Pecorino cheese. He, however, felt it needed more of a carbonara type sauce for his taste buds. I chose to have a beet salad and a side of brussel sprouts as my entree. I liked both but was already quite satisfied with the drink, the crackers and cream cheese, arancini, and the spinach salad!! I did take some of the beet salad home along with a major portion of the brussel sprouts that were prepared with bacon. No room for dessert for me, but my "date" requested a frozen Mud Slide which wasn't on the menu, but the bartender was kind enough to create it for him! It was our first time at Amelia's and our fantastic waiter, Nick, made it even more special as he explained a great deal in response to our questions about drinks, entrees, and the restaurant itself. His great personality, patience, and accuracy made a nice evening much nicer! Since I was curious to see the entire restaurant, I strolled inside and was graciously given a tour by the manager, Marcos, and I am anxious to return in the fall to partake in dinner in this gorgeous venue.

This was a quick, internet search to find a restaurant close to an event we needed to attend nearby. We had no idea what we would encounter but the menu and description fit our needs. We were pleasantly surprised to find a wonderful outdoor space, excellent food and friendly, efficient service. by 6:30pm, the place was packed, at least the large outdoor seating and bar. Always a good sign!

Always great just wish they would get rid of the scalloped potatoes which I would normally love; no flavor, no seasoning, I always ask for truffle fries instead and forgot this time and the other two guests at the table didn't finish theirs and I did not say anything prior. New recipe please! Everything else is Awesome!

Amelia's is so busy watching the nickels and dimes, they don't see the dollars going out the door. They give very little bread, just a little oil and a little cheese. None of the tables had salt and pepper shakers. When we asked our waiter for lemon for our water, he brought 1 piece of lemon, instead of 2 and it was on a napkin, not a plate. When I realized there was no salt, I waited over 5 minutes for our waiter. Finally, I asked a bus boy for salt. I never saw him again. I finally hunted down our waiter for the salt shaker. My wife eats there about once a week but I'm not in any hurry to go back.

The food was very good as well as the service. My friend and I both got the Spaghetti which come with mussels, shrimp and scollops. We would order it again. The waitress was very attentive and courteous. We sat at our table as soon as we arrived and we're not rushed at all.
