The food was good, with ample portion. However, the service was somewhat slow, and the waiter was not very personable. There was a mistake, overcharge, on the bill, and he did not even apologize for the mistake.

Let's start with the lack of air-conditioning, in 80 degree heat. Then we can talk about their shrimp burger that was smothered in hot sauce. The menu didn't indicate that none of the specials come with sides, nor did the server inform us of this. The food took almost an hour to get to us. I will not be coming back.

Always outstanding! Traditional French but with a twist. T he trout was incredible as was the duck confit. CJ and staff are welcoming and attentive, Bravo!

We went to Amuse to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary and we're pleased in every way!
We decided to share small plates and there was such a multitude of favors to tickle our palates we couldn't decide on a favorite. We were glad that we chose Amuse to celebrate such a wonderful milestone and would highly recommend it

Amuse is always a gem. My neighbor and I enjoy it each time.

It was our anniversary and we wanted someplace special. Amuse did not disappoint. We ordered the special dessert which was chocolate soufle and it was amazing. The dinners were both delicious! We will definitely be back!

The food was delicious. We had the frisée salad, duck confit, another duck dish, and lamb chops. All were great. The sides were good as well - we had snow peas, mushrooms and cole slaw. We finished with coffee, chocolate soufflé, and pineapple sorbet. Good ambiance, nice decor, nice staff.

It's been a year or so since our last visit, and I have to agree with other reviewers that service overall needs some improvement (never a problem previously - there was always a very attentive manager present). This was our first experience with the new small plate menu and we were not impressed overall. Highlight was the crepe. Escargot and beets were pretty good. The burger was just so so, and we did not care for the tarragon risotto. It was bland with just a very dominant tarragon flavor. Either we're simply not fans of tarragon (admittedly not familiar with it), or it should be paired with something more flavorful than white rice. We'll give it some time before our next visit.

We usually like Amuse and have a good meal there. This was not the case on Saturday. Our server was not great, very aloof and seemed not pleased to be there. The food (red snapper and risoto) were both really bland. Disappointed, but will try again.

The small plate menu concept allows for more choices and adventure than a traditional menu. The french onion soup, foie gras, NY Strip Steak, scallops and chocolate souffle were all wonderful. The service was right on. Looking forward to next time.
