    A great addition to the Aberdeen dining scene. Beautifully decorated, comfy dining with well trained & friendly staff. A lovely menu, not huge, but great if it’s cooked well, which this was. Our only slight complaint was the lack of other diners!

    So from the outset I want to say that the food was great, could not fault it, especially the risotto! However, the service let the place down, massively. What started off as good service descended into really poor service and finished with the manager on shift telling us that it “wasn’t a big deal” that we had to take our bill to the front desk after waiting for over 10 minutes to pay, you’d think they didn’t want our money 🤷🏼‍♀️ Poorly managed service meant that the team were very disorganised, weren’t communicating with each other regarding some of our requests, or keeping the service moving, by dessert we’d pretty much been forgotten. The manager, in the middle of full service, inexplicably sent one of the waiting team for a cigarette break, then after we’d requested our bill, went for one himself, walking past our table twice to do so, came back and sat at the front desk looking at his phone, walking past us waiting to pay and other tables waiting to be cleared, so after 10 minutes passed we went to the desk to pay, we mentioned that we’d been waiting some time, and the managers response was “it’s not a big deal” and that he had been dealing with emails etc (which he had not as we could see his screen), we pointed out that he’d just been for a cigarette break (which he denied) and that during full service that should be his priority along with supporting his team, particularly given the 12.5% service charge added on to the bill. Such a disappointing end to what could have been a really brilliant experience as the food and drinks were very good. I do have to say, the two waitresses were doing their best in the circumstances. This manager is apparently one of the general managers; his attitude and mismanagement is a risk to the business if it’s like that on a regular basis. We won’t be going back, such a shame.

    Amuse by Kevin DalgleishResponded 1 day agoHello NatalieR, If 10 minutes wait to pay your bill is in your eyes unacceptable, after you mentioning great food, drinks and waitress, Amuse is definitely not a right place for you. We don't like to rush our guests, and as you had drinks in front of you we presumed 10 minutes is totally normal. We had checked cctv cameras, and it was 8 minutes excactly. Kevin will message you directly about your unacceptable comment in relation to the management staff. Regards, Michal Ubych General Manager

    Comfortably one of the best meals I’ve eaten in Aberdeen. I don’t care about how much the food costs, the level of expertise putting it together on a plate there warrants it. I do grudge £5.50 for a bottle of water for the table however. I understand restaurants need to operate at higher margins in a downturn but this seems excessive to me. I would recommend the restaurant as it is top tier.

    Amuse by Kevin DalgleishResponded on November 22, 2022Hello DavidT, Thank you for amazing review. Just to make it clear, with the inflation, constant increases of the gas and electricity and in general growing cost of living we have to stick to our margins to make sure that business is profitable. Looking forward to see you again. Best regards, Michal Ubych General Manager

    Food was great. I asked for a salad to go with my lobster Thermidor which wasn’t on the menu so much appreciated. Waited ages in the bar for someone to ask us if we wanted a drink and there were 3 staff mingling around reception. Also were given the wrong bill when paying

    Enjoyed our experience at Amuse. Restaurant was fairly busy but not noisey. It was a chilly night but the restauant was warm and welcoming We were welcomed by very pleasant and helpful staff. The choices on the menu were limited but would please most people. Staff was knowlegable about the food. Service was good. Quality of food and presentation was Michelin star level. Will definitely be returning.

    Best food I have had in Aberdeen for a long time. Way better than any other “high end” establishment. Some of the staff looked new to the role but they were very well looked after. Only improvement on the food would have been the meringue in the pavlova which was tough at the bottom. But don’t let that detract from the very high standard overall. Food was exceptional both in taste and quality.

    I felt Amuse was very overrated, me and my partner went for lunch, i had the crab and pork, crab fresh and ok the pork was quite dry not much on the plate, no sauce, jus or purée was just no skill on the plates. Usually bread is complementary but £6? However the dessert was nice and the service was good, the restaurant itself is lovely. Have heard dinner is better than lunch (shouldn’t be but ok) so will have give it a visit again.

    Amuse by Kevin DalgleishResponded on November 8, 2022Hello RossL, Thank you for your feedback. £6 for bread is a portion to share between 2 people so actual value is £3 per person. For the freshly baked sourdough made in house served with artisan Edinburgh butter, in our eyes you pay for the great quality that you have ordered. Hopefully on your next visit you gonna enjoy our A'la Carte menu. Best regards, Michal Ubych General Manager

    Dining companions had better exp but 8 had smoked duck & venison starter smoked duck had no flavour - rest unremarkable. Next had Wild Bass - pretty tasteless and sprouting broccoli lying in a veloute was bit soggy and chewy and I love broccoli but crisp- al dente 😔ordered chocolate mousse - what i got was not a ‘ mousse’ firm and fluffy but wet like an instant whip - tasted ok but disappointing - even got some cream to stir into it - even more liquid hundreds & thousands were like small lumps of chocolate cake - should have sent it back but lost the will so disappointed. Other companions had great monk fish and sole special £38 not sure if sole was worth price, Cheapest bottle wine was £35 we had Pinot @£37 - pretty standard. All in all disappointing for my expectations.

    Food was eru nice and service by all staff was excellent. Cost of alcohol is the main criticism with wine far too expensive. Would have stayed longer after meal but left to go to another local hotel where wine was served at a much more reasonable price.
