    This place has an amazing wine list & delicious food, not to mention that their happy hour is one of the best in the city. TIP: Go early in the evening to take full advantage of their happy hour. Read more

    What a fun little lovely find! $10 wine flight tasting! Escargot was delicious, pate was great too. Since the kitchen was closing we didn't know what to order so rushed and ordered pizza which was ok

    wonderful selection of wine and friendly staff. But this place gets crowded early. At the beginning of happy hour big groups of chatty people start pouring in. the noise level can be annoying.

    Check out Amelie in Nob Hill after work for a $20 platter of cheese (3 kinds) meat (5 kinds) and baguette (oh yes). Oh, and you can get a "customized" flight of wine for $10, too. Read more

    Experiment with the flights and finish with a plate of cheese (brie is phenomenal) - good thing they are generous with their bread. The truffle ravioli were also absolutely delicious.

    The wines are served in Riedel glasses, arguably the best in the world. Ask the bartenders how each style enhances the varying red and white varietals differently…they’ll know. Read more

    The red and white wine happy hour samplings are a great deal at $10 for three wines. This is a very unique place. Go and experience the atmosphere.

    Been going to Amelie regularly since '07. Never have I met anybody so rude as the hairy Rasputin-ish server/manager! Downgraded from fave to least fave place!

    Should you consider this place "European", that would only prove your typical "American" point of view. Nice wine bar, nonetheless.
