Our server was fantastic. The chef was amazing and came out and talked to us. We did the paired tasting which was a great call. First timers and we will be back!

The fish was very good, but the scallops on grits had far too much mustard in the grits and was not up to their usual standards.

It was our first time dining at Amuse. Overall we had a great experience. We had the five course chef menu and each course was described when presented. The service was not rushed and a little slower than expected although our server was knowledgeable. The noise level was a distraction for an intimate evening. I would recommend this spot and looking forward to trying again.

The nice weather brought everyone out to Rehoboth, so it was surprisingly busy for February - it felt more like a Saturday in July! Poor David was slammed. But the food was still amazing (5-course tasting menu - a favorite was lobster with pickled mango and beets, the beef tartare, and the corn cake dessert with sour cream and strawberry).

Wow, wow and wow! I've dined here a few times and I've never been disappointed. This particular visit was exceptional. I arrived at 10:05 PM for my 10:00 PM reservation but even though the dining room had closed at 10:00 they graciously seated me.

I chose Tapas as a part of the this review as I made a meal from their appetizers. The beet salad included candied ginger for a surprise sweetness and zest. The trumpet mushroom said "quail egg" on the menu but I was treated to two! And the escargot was about a dozen with an amazing goat cheese sauce which was divine; the quantity of snails allowed me to savor two at the same time.

All told the choices are a bit edgier than many places which is why I gravitate back to see what they've dreamed up for me to try.

This was our second time dining here, the first time was about a year ago. We were reasonably impressed with the food the first time but were disappointed this time. They have only a sample menu on their website because it's meant to be a place that does up to the minute creations based on market availability. That said, the entire starter menu looked the same as last time. In addition, the menu is VERY short. This would be fine if the few items were spectacular, but they were just "good enough" - our entrees were under seasoned. The truly unforgivable part was the service. There were very few other tables but we waited a long time for someone to come over after we were seated, waited to get drinks then waited again to order. It was irritating that the staff dropped off drinks, and food to other tables nearby and then returned to the kitchen without taking our order first. Probably won't be going back there, too many other great options in the area.

We've been here before, mainly in the summer. Its nice to be back in the quiet time. Food is still great; went for the Wednesday special tasting menu with wine pairing. Super bargain. Very modern concept in ordering by category and ingredients rather than by courses, similar to some higher end NYC places (Eleven Madison comes to mind). Hopefully they will be able to stick around as opposed to other nearby places that can't make a go of it through the slower winter season.

The pre-fixe New Year Eve dinner was underwhelming. The undercooked duck wasn't the only problem. Overall the courses were just ok. They sounded interesting but most of the dishes weren't very appetizing. Also, the late seating of a very drunk table of four near us was a problem. I felt like we were having dinner at a bar, not an upscale restaurant.

Very slow kitchen service. Plus waiter was not very attentive. I had to ask 3 times for a glass of wine. We were seated for nearly an hour before bread came and then dinner was delivered before we finished the bread. Some in the party had burgers and the ketchup took almost ten minutes to arrive after the burgers were delivered.

No excuse. Place was half full when we arrived.

There are so many other restaurants with food on par that I doubt I'd go back.

Slow service can ruin an evening

Food was excellent. I had perfectly cooked scallops and the rest of the plate was good as well. First time for Jerusalem artichokes, which I liked. I'll cook them myself now. My wife had duck cooked medium at her request. It was a shade less done than that, but very tasty and tender. The only reason I didn't rate the ambience higher was because of a loud party at the bar. One woman could successfully compete in a hog calling contest.

I had the skirt steak and my wife had the drum. Both were outstanding entrées. They forgot my beet salad for the second time in the last two trips but much to their credit they gave my wife and I complementary desserts which were outrageously good and creative. They are definitely on our return list.

An amazing experience to dine here. The service was friendly, warm and inviting. The atmosphere was cozy by refined. The food was top notch. Truly some of the best food I have ever had. And that's saying a lot. From the first bite of our amuse bouche to the last bite of our dessert we were not disappointed. Highly recommend for date nights or special occasions especially out of peak season (after Labor Day and before Memorial Day). I hope I am able to dine here again in the future!!

It's always great at A(MUSE.) Small menu with great attention to detail. I had a Wagyu strip steak with bloody butcher grits (red corn grits with kale and onion worked into them (no Blood).
Appetizer was a great goose liver. Don't remember what my DH had, but I think I won. The waiter, Matt, was attentive and knowledgeable and fun.

The food was great and it was jazz weekend so the music in the background was outstanding. The only negative was that I ordered a beet salad that I never received and was charged for it. I didn't realize it until the next day when it was too late. I would say enjoy the food but review your check before you leave.

We absolutely loved amuse. We enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu and it was worth every penny. The mixed drink my husband ordered was way to sweet but other than that, we had no other complaints. It was one of the best meals we've had at rehoboth and the free jazz for jazz week made it even more special.

A(muse) is very good, but I have never found it outstandingly and worthy of 5 stars. In the night we were there (a Friday), the noise level was so high that we couldn't have a conversation. The meals were good. My wife and I had soft shell crab appetizer that was excellent. We also both had steak that was good, but lacked something. Our friends had scallops and pork. They thought they were good, but not worthy of rave reviews. We couldn't wait to get out and go somewhere else for dessert where we could talk. Also, as a fine restaurant, it is a major failing that they don't have cappuccino and have a limited and not interesting dessert menu.

Vacationing for the second time in the Rehoboth area, a(MUSE.) was a definite "must" for our dining choice. As we had done the previous year, we had the tasting menu with the wine pairings. The chef accommodated our request for a course with foie gras while avoiding those items we definitely did not want (sweetbreads and tongue). All courses were well-suited for the wines that accompanied them. We found the pacing, food and service top-notch and look forward to coming again next year.
