Dinner here was a pleasure. Food, service, wine and setting were all really good. We are often disappointed by "Fine Dining" in the USA. Amuse did not disappoint at all. After enjoying the wonderful museum dinner here rounded off a wonderful visit perfectly.

Everything is top notch at Amuse--from the bottled water to the fine service to the wonderful food. Try the creme brulee for dessert!

Four of us had a late lunch after viewing the Napoleon exhibit. We dined on Mussels, oyster stew, quiche, fries. Everyone was pleased with their choices. The sauce on the mussels was amazing! Glad we had dipping bread.

Went to VMFA for lunch and Napoleon: Power and Splendor exhibition. First started looking over the more casual offerings of their Best Café. We elected to try Amuse, since we hadn't done so before. We were seated at the exspansive windows affording views of the...More
