    Great food but ambience spoiled when chef came out of kitchen and shouted at the member of staff serving telling him he was on last warning for smoking out the back or something. Should be done in private.

    Lovely restaurant with a welcoming ambience Staff approachable and friendly and helpful. Food was nicely presented. We all thought that the food was s little over seasoned by was of good quality Disappointed rather the set menu had supplement charge. £3 spent to have raspberry cheesecake seemed excessive and we couldn’t see where the extra cost was coming from However overall though a lovely meal in lovely environment! Thank you

    Outstanding food let down by average service. Every dish was outstanding, but the service left a lot to be desired. Had to wait for drinks, had to chase down a bottle of wine which we eventually discovered was actually out of stock. At these prices, the service should be as good as the food.

    The food was beautiful, service was great and we did leave a tip the only criticism we would have was not being offered the choice between tap water and bottled water as paying £5.50 for a bottle of water was rather excess when tap water would have been sufficient and also adding a £15.50 service charge to the bill is a bit much as we feel we tip for good service when it’s deserved and it was great service but I would rather decide the amount myself

    We had a lovely lunch here on Sunday with the added bonus of a Roast Sirloin of Beef being on the menu. Our Itison voucher represented a very good deal if only we had managed to stick to the script but the menu was just too tempting I'm afraid. Second time we've been and would certainly go back.

    As a an Itison Lunch the food was ok. The steak was made by the sauce. We thought the staff were bit scruffy with stained clothes and we weren't impressed with them drinking behind the bar in view of customers albeit it was only coke etc. Not good for a restaurant of this quality.

    Food was fantastic but unfortunately was let down by the service. Started off great but by end there was none. Had hoped to try a few cocktails but took forever to get a drink order taken and a long time for it to arrive. In the end we left as was sat waiting for ages for dessert to be cleared & offered tea & coffee. Such a shame as the food was lovely and can’t be faulted!

    Friday evening meal - ambiance good. Disappointing menu choices - two of the five main courses were fish.....after a fish course option? We had steak tartare and smoked salmon to start, both good but the smoked salmon was more 'Amuse Bouche' than 'Fish Course'. Mains were Lobster Ravioli and Guinea Foul - the Guinea Foul was presented as a breakfast sausage - it lacked meat and simply didn't work on either taste or texture. Rum and Raisin ice cream was presented without the Rum accompaniment - oops - the cheese board was good but again lacking in quantity, other than the chutney which was plentiful. No amuse bouches or palate cleansing sorbets on offer. Wine was poured some of the time. Waited 15mins for the bill and had to go to the till to settle up. Average service for Aberdeen, but above average prices - the 12.5% service charge was optional so we opted not to pay it. Kevin's PR machine works wonders at 'bigging up' this 'wannabe' Michelin star restaurant - something it will 'never be', based on the quality and consistency of service alone. Our third and final visit......

    One of the best restaurants in Aberdeen, if not THE best (albeit an easy achievement with such limited fine-dining competition in the city). Service was slick without being pretentious and staff were decently knowledgeable (also unusual for Aberdeen). Sourcing of produce is clearly important and this sets Amuse apart as an artisan establishment rather than a run-of-the-mill restaurant. Sadly the prices make this a special occasion venue rather than somewhere mortals can eat regularly. I hope there’s sufficient demand to sustain it.

    Our starters took a long time to arrive - staff explained 'printer did not work'. No compensation etc. for delay offered. Our order was taken wrongly - we asked for 1 * bread for 2. Only on checking bill it showed 2 * bread for 2. I queried this, to which the reply was 'We can remove 1 of them from the bill, but this amount will be deducted from the service charge'. Sly, to say the least. 2 * double esspressos were added to our bill. We did not have any coffees. These were then removed from the bill. This is my main point: We were given the 'sunday lunch' menu we requested. We had 3 people who had 3 courses, and 1 who had 2 courses. I expected to pay 3 * £33 plus 1 * £25.50 for this food (as the menu states). But the bill does not present it this way. Instead you are charged for starter/main/dessert separately. For 2 of us the bill was correct £33. But for the other 2 the bill was £38 (not £33) and £30.50 (not £25.50). The overcharge was for the sole - £23 rather than £18 to fit the fixed price menu on offer. This was only noticed after we had left the premises. The above points are exceptionally annoying, and somewhat spoilt our (first) visit. The waiter announced some 'specials' for the day. Including cheesecake, which he said was £12.50. I took this as £12.50 in addition to the amount (£7.50) included in the fixed price menu, so thought £20 for cheesecake was too much and did not order. In view of all the other bill mistakes, its possible he should have said £5. But I don't know for sure on this one.
