Anniversary. Very disappointed, was recommended by friends who went for their anniversary celebration. Dining room was empty when arrived. Two tables but a loud and raucous bar crowd that made for a very irritating dinner. Food very slow to arrive but was satisfactory. Compared to several other high end restaurants in a Rehoboth will not recommend or return.

We really appreciated how attentive the manager was w/ our Plant Base way of eating! Our meals were So Delicious !
Our friends' also loved all their courses...

We did feel the restaurant was quite loud making conversation with our friends difficult! (suggest sound absorbing items)

Saturday was quite cold and sitting near the window was uncomfortable cold. A warm throw would be real nice( one RB restaurant already offers them)! Think lined curtains in bottom of window also ...just a thought!

We did really like all the personal attention by our water Danny and Glen the manager...will be back!

We decided to treat ourselves to the Chef’s Tasting 5-course dinner. Every single course had it’s own flavor and character. I got to try foods I’ve never tried before and enjoy things I’d never order on my own. Attached a photo of the best ribs I have ever eaten in my life.

Loved the relaxed vibe. Everyone was extremely welcoming… Service was excellent. Had the Berkshire sausage and the autumn squash hot plates. Absolutely delicious; could have been a paired entree! Short ribs were tender and flavorful, and the grits with the yellowtail tuna were out of this world. Wish we would’ve had room for dessert! Definitely a great find.

Spent a lovely evening celebrating a longtime anniversary... acknowledged by friendly, professional server 'Danny'...and in cozy booth (requested) ambiance. Excellent starters of Bibb lettuce salad, and salmon pate', followed by delicious grilled scallops and sushi-grade tuna (both over creative sub-dishes). Good variety of by-the glass wine choices , fairly priced, too. Well done, a(muse) staff team ;-)

This is at least our second time to Amuse and it was again excellent. Service by Danny was attentive without being overbearing and his recommendations were spot on. The half portions of pasta let one enjoy the delicious flavor without the fullness of an entire portion. All around terrific! Great job.

My only recommendation is that the mozzarella appetizer need some work; a critique the staff took well. The smoked mushroom soup? my gosh!!!

My first thought looking at the menu was that aMuse was a bit pricey, but I can tell you that after our cocktails, cheese plate, and entrees, I was very pleased and thought it was well worth it. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. We sat outside, which in the cooler weather was lovely (and very quiet off-season. I will definitely go back for a special date night or a special dinner with friends.

Based on a friend's recommendation, we ate at this restaurant one evening while at the beach. It was excellent! I had one of the best prepared soft shell crabs ever, while my husband enjoyed every bite of his wild caught catfish! the service was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was lively but not overly loud or raucous. Had a wonderful evening and wished we had stopped by earlier in our trip. We would have gone again if we had time.

If you see something on the on line menu, don't get too attached as it may not be on the menu at the restaurant. That said, we had a really nice table on the small outdoor patio and the service was excellent.
My gazpacho was outstanding but my pasta dish was just so-so for me. My partner's salad was really good and he really liked his scallop entree. All in all a nice evening and nice place.

Our dog was treated like royalty. Upon arrival she was offered fresh water and an organic treat. The gentleman who seated us was an incredible host. The food was nuanced and flavorful. Don’t miss the chicken and the salad with loads of delicious fresh herbs. The greens that accompany the chicken would be as famous as Thrasher’s fries if they were spotlighted and served on their own.

Hari Cameron does not disappoint with his creative approach to his menu. We have dined at a(MUSE!) a few times since the restaurant opened. The food has evolved and is a little more accessible by a wider dining audience. But the creative choices are still there, with local sourcing and items that we would not expect in a beach town. We will not hesitate to return.

We have been to a(Muse) many times and have loved the quality and creativity of Chef Hari Cameron. This time, however, was very disappointing. My wife’s meal and mine were very mediocre. She had soft shell crabs. The crabs were ok, but not nearly as good as we’ve had at other restaurants in Rehoboth and Bethany Beach. There also were a ridiculous number of shashinto peppers on the plate. I had rack of lamb that I should have sent back but did not. The chops were so stringy that I had problems cutting them with a steak knife. Not a great evening!

We had a fabulous dining experience at A(muse) while visiting Rehobeth for a few days. Our only regret is that we hadn’t dined there both days. We sat at the outdoor patio with our 2 standard poodles. The chef visited with a special treat for both dogs What a wonderful touch. The chef was warm, personable and truly talented at creating unique delicious food. The staff makes you feel like neighbors and friends. This attitude carries through the restaurant where guests are friendly and comfortable. We were so delighted to have found this gem. We hope the chef pursued his passion for cooking in a restaurant closer to our home in DC but in the meantime will most definitely return to A(muse).

Visiting from NYC - had high expectations based on reviews. Food was good, but service fell apart as the place filled up. People were coming from kitchen to assist, but no one checked back with us until I went and asked Maitre d’. Our server seemed to lose interest in us when we told her we weren’t interested in one of the special chef tasting menus. Not a great value- kind of pricey for what we got.
