    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

    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.

    A great place for a glass of wine and a bite after work. Great service with great knowledge of their extensive wine selection. Beware it gets crowded fast after 5:30.

    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.

    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 shithole

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

    Spiros Vathis · June 9, 2013

    Build your own wine flight for $10. 3 wines, great portions 5:30-7pm happy hour

    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!

    Very cute date spot. Get a bottle (or two), a flatbread, and a cheese spread

    Cute French wine bar, red dimly lit interior. Great service, selection of wine, and the best ambience! Perfect for dates or girls nights!

    Bought the flight... was not impressed. "Generous pours"? Really?!? All 3 wines included in my flight of wine didn't equal more than a glass. What a rip-off!

    Eileen · August 27, 2012
  • BordeauxWines

    We like this place for a romantic rendez-vous in the cozy booths. Besides, who can resist a glass of Bordeaux?

    BordeauxWines · July 16, 2012
  • Party Earth

    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

    Great hangout at night, enjoy lots of wines and socialize. Gets crowded though and only 1 bathroom stall. That was the worst!

    Jason Castellani · November 10, 2011

    5:30 - 7 is happy hour. $31 for a cheese plate and bottle of Cote du Rhone. Yum.

    Must do the $10 Happy Hour flights and get the goat cheese ball with caramelized onions and crab salad. Don't forget to check out the French eye candy ;)

    cute wine bar - but I found the wine (and the bar) to be terribly warm. Seems like it be better for a happy hour type place.
