Contemporary American
Amuse is a seasonal, farm to table driven restaurant, located on the third floor of the museum. Whether you are dining in our main dining room, full-service bar, or our private dining room, you will be able to take in sweeping views of the Robins Sculpture Garden and the museum’s Cochrane Atrium. Our team works diligently to provide a menu that is directly inspired by the art-filled surroundings, current exhibitions, and seasonality while also carefully selecting only the finest ingredients from local vendors, artisans, and farmers. Just a friendly reminder that the museum does not allow balloons, confetti, glitter, plants potted with soil, and candles with open flames. If a date and time you seek for a reservation appears to be full, please give us a call so we can see what other times might be available.

    We dine at Amuse almost every time we visit VMFA. It never disappoints; the food is excellent, the wine list is well curated and the cocktails inventive. We appreciate how the menu changes to compliment the special exhibits

    A delightful Japanese themed meal to go with our visit to the outstanding Samurai exhibit. The food was excellent as was the service. The view was delightful and it was relatively quiet allowing easy conversations. It was not a bargain but given the quality the price was probably appropriate.

    I generally love this restaurant and service is always outstanding. The food was a let down this time. They are trying to relate tot be exhibits at the museum and this was Japanese themed menu. I would rather go to Japanese restaurant to have this cuisine. Good was bland and not elevated at all.

    This was my second visit to try items from the Samurai menu. Everything was absolutely delicious. The service was attentive & welcoming. The ambience was lively and peaceful. I want to try as many dishes from them menu. So far I have never been disappointed when eating at Amuse.

    The new carrot salad on the menu was scrumptious. And Alex's service was fabulous, as always! Friendly, attentive, and good-humored. He makes dining at Amuse extra special.

    Excellent brunch in all respects! Creative and delicious brunch foods, great selection of beverages and attentive service. The coffee could have been hotter - otherwise, a stellar experience!
