Had dinner at Amelia's on a chilly night in early November. We sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere. Everything we ordered was delicious and cooked to perfection. We had a slight mishap, my son and I both ordered the steak with the blue cheese sauce on the side as neither of us enjoy blue cheese, but the waitress insisted we would love it. Both steaks came out with the sauce on top, after trying a taste we asked her to bring it back the way we ordered it. She felt so terrible about the mistake that they comped our drinks and our desserts, she even insisted we order dessert. They handled the situation beautifully and we will definitely return when we are back in Gainesville. As a bonus, there is good people watching from the outside tables.

We visited Amelia's on Sunday after the Hippodrome's afternoon play. My husband and I had the Grouper which was prepared perfectly. It was meaty and moist and a very large portion. The presentation with sweet potato "fries" perched atop was beautiful. Chef Andy came out and told us about the size of the fish his fisherman delivered. Wonderful meal, attentive staff and overall great experience.

Went on a Saturday night. This was our first time at Amelia's and it did not disappoint. The food was great and the service phenomenal. An older gentleman waited on us. Our glasses were never empty and the timing of each course was impeccable. They were super attentive, cleared our dishes and brought out next course at the perfect time. Nice, relaxed evening of fine dining. We will definitely be back.

The Penne a la Vodka was very, very good. The eggplant rolllatini was delicious.

Try this spot (behind the Hippodrome State Theatre) for some authentic food, good service and nice ambiance.
