a(MUSE.) Ratings and Reviews
One of the higher rated venues in Rehoboth Beach, and well deserved. We’ve frequented quite a few over the past year and would have to rate a(MUSE) at the top of the list.
Cocktail menu is excellent; lots of hand-crafted choices to start the fete. Wine selection is also very good; mark-up is in the 50% range from retail pricing which is not unreasonable for a vacation spot. More than enough recognizable selections on the list and some interesting excursions beyond the ordinary.
We were there during Valentine’s Day week so the holiday menu was still in play. Outstanding bone-in ribeye for 2, locally sourced and perfectly prepared. Looking forward to returning and exploring some of the other options. The “pot brownie” desert is insanely good.
The wait staff is great — neighborly, professional, and well-versed on every menu item. Really made the evening an exceptional outing.
Our waitress, Emily, was Great! She answered all our questions with grace and she put together a fantastic cheese plate after asking us just a few questions about what we like. Make sure you try the Pot Brownie for dessert. A bit pricey, but really worth it for a nice dinner out where you don't have to dress up.
The food was better than average for a "locally sourced"-type restaurant. The service was a little lackluster...not rude or unfriendly, but the waitress seemed a bit distracted and unsure about the food/drinks she was serving. This is not a restaurant for a quick meal. If you are looking for a quick in and out...this isn't going to fit your needs. The prices were a little steep for the wine and entrees. Appetizers and cheese plates were fairly reasonable. Portions were better than expected and the plating and presentation were very appealing to the eye. If I can be honest, I don't know that I'd return (considering how many other restaurants are in the area), but I'd definitely recommend trying it once.
Our 3rd time at aMuse and we have not been disappointed by any of our visits. The food is not run of the mill, so some adventurous in your nature will help you enjoy your visit. If you decide on the 5 course menu come hungry as the portions are more than enough to satisfy.
This meal was laughably bad from start to finish. We arrived at 645 for our 7 pm reservation on New Year's Eve and were greeted COLDLY by the hostess. She seemed surprised we had a reservation, and directed us to the bar. When we sat at the bar, the bartender, who seemed drunk, informed us that we would have to move shortly because those seats were reserved. We told him we were expecting a table and that he was rude, and he reacted defensively. Again, he seemed drunk. We were eventually seated for our $100 each fixed five course menu. Course three had ridiculous choices - pork, celery root and hare? The celery root was disgusting, by the way. A man named Glen, who presumably works there, came up to our table and said he was "glad we found a seat," as if we did not have a reservation.
I have been going to Rehoboth for 20 years and spend a lot of money there - I will never again dine at this establishment. thumbs down.
Fantastic!!! I've been coming to a(MUSE.) since it opened. The food is always spectacular and the service never falters. The star of the show was a peach mignonette oyster that was an unforgettable party in your mouth. The short rib was right there with it, but got edged out but just barely. We'll definitely be back again!
Been several times, and this place does not disappoint. If you are not one to experiment with new flavor combinations, stay away.
Started with the always-on-the-menu potted chicken with toasted bread tiles. It was a wonderful appetizer. It was not a scarf it down app, you had to spoon it out, so it filled the time until the entree showed up. It is the many flavors of chicken!
My entree was fresh bucatini with homemade crumbled sausage, cherry tomatoes and herbs. The pasta was dense and the sausage was so flavorful.
I always recommend aMuse, and last night was a fabulous fine dining experience.
Had the tasting menu. The ingredients were local and fresh. The portions were large for a tasting menu. The kitchen was flexible. The server was knowledgeable. The dishes were generally rich, maybe too much so for a tasting menu. Did not find the dishes that creative.
Halibut chowder was absolutely perfect. Silky smooth, nice chunks of fish, Generous portion, seasoned just right. We had soup and split three starters in order to get a wider sampling. No disappointments
Service was good during most of the evening, restaurant was very busy. Would definitely return and try an entree.
From first to, well, not exactly worst, but a great disappointment. Food was still very good, but in general it wasn’t supported by comparable service, knowledge or attitude.
During our prior visit to Rehoboth Beach, we found Amuse to be both stellar and memorable. Our experience made us look forward to returning, and being wowed once again with the chef’s tasting menu and catered to by a crew who took delight in sharing a deep affection for each plate; a sommelier’s respect for not only the wine list itself, but a care in serving it and a level of professionalism commensurate with the pricey menu.
Wasn’t to be this year, I’m afraid. Servers had little understanding of either the food or wine. Bread (really good btw), had to be provided by a manager, as our waiter(s) never bothered. We mostly poured our own wine (not a biggy, other than as measured against the cost of the meal). Quite frankly, while there was plenty of help, they seemed to be literally running in circles or chatting with their friends.
Again, the food was unique, but I would think that Chef Hari could put a better frame around his art. He's done it before…I do hope that Amuse regains all the attributes that we fondly recall from our first visit. Our most recent left much to be desired.
A wonderful dining experience! Was so curious to see what this restaurant was all about. Chef Hari Cameron has done a terrific job. Fresh ingredients (much locally sourced), well-prepared food, and excellent options lead to outstanding meals. Diners have a chance to try new things and indulge.
I had heard of a(MUSE) for over a year, and on a recent trip to Delaware, decided to swing through.
Some reviews have complained about slow service, but on the first Wednesday after Labor Day, everything was perfect. Service was attentive, but not unobtrusive, and timing was just right for a relaxed meal.
The Matty 73 cocktail (gin - lemon - sparkling wine) was refreshing and not sweet.
The OCMD scallops and squash were excellent, as was the Atlantic Halibut. Cheesecake with honey peach reduction made for an outstanding desert, very light, and more like cheesecake mousse spread on a very crispy bed of what was described as graham, but much tasier and crunchier.
a(MUSE) is not cheap, but provided the best dining experience I have had anywhere in Delaware.
This was our second visit. The wait between courses was terrible and there was no apology or offering of food in between. We arrived at 7, ordered apps and entrees, was served apps by 7:45 and dinner at 8:22. No offer of bread or anything else to pass the time. Restaurant was not full. We had a reservation. No apparent reason for delay. Disappointing... lack of communication from management or staff. FYI/ two apps were cold- tartare and cucumber soup. No reason for such a delay.
