we are usually frugal but when we pay for a nice meal, it's lovely to the the food live up to the price. Amuse delivered for a 25th anniversary celebration. Inventive food, nicely cooked, fresh. My husband is very picky about his steak and loved his. My scallops were succulent - no heavy sauces. The dessert was especially inventive with... More

Great food, great service. Reasonable prices for what was offered, and a surprisingly modest wine markup.

Of all of the downstate restaurants I've eaten at in Oregon, Amuse is my new #1. The service, atmosphere and food were impeccable. This would be a top restaurant in any town, it just happens to be in tiny Ashland. It comes with my highest rating.

We thoroughly enjoyed our whole evening last night at Amuse. We sampled three appetizers, an entre, a cheese, and a desert. All were sublime. The service was attentive, but not intrusive, the ambiance was relaxed and intimate, but not too much so. Every dish was obviously prepared with great attention and love, starting with the little fried potatoes they brought... More

We enjoyed our meals, and the service was good. Made reservations through open table, and they were flexible when we were a bit late.

Amuse is a relatively small venue that succeeds by having a limited menu of things they prepare extremely well. The staff is well-trained, attentive and give friendly service without trying to be your best friend. There is no rush for turnover. The main courses were all excellent, which included rib eye steak, blackened cod and braised lamb. Everyone enjoyed their... More

The subtle flavors of each dish were lovely. The appetizer with kale pesto was original and fun. The main dish was good, but other courses more memorable. dessert was fab!

Amuse was a perfect spot for our table of 13 guests. I wouldn't say that it would be great for groups of many more than that as it is a charming and cozy spot. They even let us order off the main menu. Food came up quickly, and perfect. Everyone raved about their meals. We all opted for the 3-course... More
