We were recommended to try this restaurant and were disappointed . The menu was limited. I ordered the sweetbreads as an appetizer and they were good . For the Jain I ordered Halibut and it was treated with the same tehina and truffle oil. While it worked for the sweetbreads , it was not that good with the halibut . My companions also felt there was too much use of truffle oil . Our service was excellent .

We had a fantastic meal from the service to the Amuse to the breads and spreads to the beet salad to the steaks to the sorbet and coffee and the final brownie bite. I will be back next time I am in town.

Prepared foods were over salted for personal taste. Bench seating not comfortable. Ask for chairs. Servers were pleasant and helpful.

We enjoyed our dinner at Amuse. The service was leisurely but efficient and it fit in with our relaxed plans. We really enjoyed the food with some new items on the menu. The noise level was fairly high because the rooms are small, but overall it was tolerable. We look forward to our next visit.

Great food and wonderful service. I love the "amuse bouche" and final small sweet. Food is local, beautifully prepared and plated. One of my favorites in Ashland when we are there for the Shakespeare Festival. The restaurant is small, so occasionally a tiny bit more noise than I prefer. In summer, the terrace out back is open, with heat for chilly northwest nights.

We had been before and really enjoyed it. This time it was just fine, but not very stimulating. The halibut was on the verge of overcooked. The prawns were nicely done. Not a good value for the prices.

The owner is a enophile, but his wine list no longer reflects some of his expertise in foreign imports. Everything is local, which is good for people visiting from outside of OR.

We received a gift certificate for $150.00 and with tip our meal dessert and drinks used all of it
The food was outstanding in taste, presentation and portion. The cocktails were smallish and spendy. The room we were in was small and noisy do to tight quarters. Overall the food made it worth it for a special occasion meal out.

Excellent dining, as always. We have been visiting Amuse since 2 weeks after they opened in 2000 and have returned many times because we love the food, ambiance, and service there. The wines are always well chosen. Our first choice in Ashland!

Each time I'm in Ashland for a workshop, I look forward to a dinner at Amuse. This time I met dear friends and we all enjoyed our food and drinks very much. All was delicious! We had a wonderful waitress who was super helpful and we stayed through desert and after dinner coffees. I can't wait to return!

We eat at Amuse every time we visit Ashland ... generally twice a year ... and have been doing so since they opened 18 years ago. The food and the service are consistently excellent — on a par or better than similarly priced restaurants in SF, Portland or Seattle.

Certainly among Ashland's best restaurants, if not the best. All dishes are aesthetically pleasing and cooked to perfection. Portions are generous. I had monkfish with a cauliflower reduction sauce. It was excellent. It ought to be good. The chef is cordon-bleu trained.

Amuse serves good bistro food in a nice environment delivered by a competent and friendly staff. The prices are high, and not commensurate with the potential of the dishes. It would be easy for a party of two to incur a tab for <$250,00, with wine, and ordering servings from each of the 4 different courses. I noticed that many tables around us ordered only two to three courses, keeping the tab within greater reason. Regardless, I would rate the taste of the food a "B", at best. Originality a "B". The presentation an "A", and service an "A". Amuse is a pleasant, intimate restaurant with a bit of an upscale menu which makes for a nice place for a special event.

Ambience was awkward, tight quarters where you felt like you were sitting at the next persons table. You could hear every conversation going on. Dinner was prepared well but not that exciting. Dates with blue cheese and balsamic is not very original, just saying. Gnocchi was over salted, swordfish, not overdone but bland.
