“Perfect celebration dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

As a family we made a reservation for five to celebrate our daughter's recent success. We have only dined at Le clos a few times but it has never disappointed! Every dish I have ever ordered has been exquisite and in a class all of its own, my personal favorite is the shrimp dish and I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. The beautiful cottage style restaurant has a atmosphere like no other, it is cozy and charming. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive, it is truly like dining with friends. We will definitely be back and will recommend Le clos to anyone looking for a truly extraordinary dining experience!

“Le Clos in no longer our favorite restaurant.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

Every year the highlight of our Amelia Island vacations has been dinner at Le Clos. We usually eat there at least twice during our vacation. Many of our friends have eaten at Le Clos on our recommendation. But last Friday night, we noticed a definite change in the attitude of the normally friendly and gracious staff. We got there about 5:25 (they open at 5:30) and we were met with cold unfriendliness and definitely made to feel unwelcome. We were informed that although they had an empty table at the moment (there wasn't a single customer in the restaurant!) the table was reserved and another party was going to be seated at "our table" at 6:45. The staff person was very condescending while she schooled us on the importance of timing "table turns" in a restaurant such as Le Clos, rolled her eyes and said it was "up to us" if we wanted to "chance it." She also made it a point to tell us that it was 5:28 (they open at 5:30) to let us know how horribly inconvenient it was for her to seat us. She also announced to our 6 year old (who is more well-behaved and has better manners than most adults) that "we DON'T have a children's menu." We decided to stay, but immediately regretted the decision. After hearing the specials, we told the inconvenienced and unhappy server what we wanted to order (remember, we were pressed for time because "our table" would be taken at 6:45!), but she didn't take our order! She just walked away and came back a while later. We ate a hurried meal (we were finished by 6:15) and the entire time we were eating, only ONE other party was seated in the entire restaurant. We will never return, nor will we recommend Le Clos to anyone again. The food is good, but it does not make up for a horrible dining experience.

“Best Restaurant Experience We had in Florida!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

My girlfriend and I were traveling to Key West from Maryland and we stumbled upon this absolute gem of a place on a very busy Saturday night for the entire town of Fernandina. We were a little unsure as we arrived right around
seven p.m. without a reservation and thinking the town was so busy that getting a good experience was not "likely".
We couldn't have been more impressed. The staff was extremely welcoming. We started with the escargot paired with a delightful Pinot Blanc that let us know we were in for further delights.
Predictably we wanted to switch our salad course After we had already ordered a different one.
The service staff adjusted faster than we did and the Caesar salad was simply delicious.
One bite into the Grouper special
I knew I had hit fresh Florida fish country for the duration. My girlfriend had the duck and while everyone knows that it can be tender their preparation
was out of this world!
The place itself is an extremely well maintained
"French Cottage" and while some of your fellow diners are 'nearby' we seemed to enjoy our paradise found on this beautiful little island in North Florida.
The rest of our two week vacation took us to many fine restaurants and exotic type nightspots.
On the way home we decided that truly the best
overall experience we had was definitely at Le Clos.

The day we were coming back thru North Florida
was a Sunday so they were closed unfortunately
but completely understandable. We are sure they deserved a day off.
The only course we did not have was dessert
leaving us a wonderful reason to return.Looking very forward to that trip!
Don't skip this place.
