    Ask for the make-your-own hummus and crackers. It's delicious and free, but you have to ask for it.

    I'm a big fan of Amelia's and it's one of my rotation restaurants. Great array of food, friendly service and a dash of flair make this worth checking out. Already here? Get the pizza with the egg.

    short ribs (sandwich & entree) are both superb.

    The tiramusu and bread pudding are homemade and a must to try. Cheesecake is also a stellar dessert here.

    Great short ribs and parmesan-crusted calamari! The lamb skewers were good but nothing to write home about.

    The brunch plates, like the Classic Benedict, are solid and well-priced, but service seems to be lacking at times.

    Highlight: mash your own chickpeas hummus. Crostinis were good. Entree eggplant panini with feta ehh. Not going back here again. Waitress not good - she rushed us.

  • Staffan H.

    Horrible! Avoid if possible, the food was boring and stale, the wiaters rude and slow and the venue was very noisy and cluttered. I will never eat here again.

    Amelia's Flatbread Pizza with Chorizo, Wild Mushroom, Smoked Gouda and a Fried Egg easily makes "Best items I've eaten in NJ". Make sure to ask for a second fried egg, cause I think it should have two
