Food and service always great. Pre theatre reservations during Shakespeare Festival are hard to get. Plan ahead or enjoy a leisurely dinner on a non theatre evening

Excellent atmosphere, top-rate service, friendly staff and (mostly) exquisitely prepared food & drinks. The white corn soup & warm beignets dessert were award-winning starts & ends of our meals. There were, however, a couple of (slight) disappointments; Halibut was & smelled (perhaps) one day passed it's sale date but the delicious bed it was on masked the negative and the... More

Whenever I visit Ashland for the Shakespeare Festival, I look forward to dining at Amuse. The food and service are excellent, the ambience understated and tasteful. Meals can be somewhat pricey, but are well worth the cost.

Our second time in two years for dinner at Amuse restaurant while at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. This is French style cooking which solid and dependable. We both enjoyed the complimentary bread with three spreads, especially the roasted red pepper spread. Maybe it was redundant , but we also ordered a pate as an appetizer. The serving was small but...

We had read wonderful reviews and were looking forward to our meal. Three of us were dining, we ordered a cocktail, wine and a soda. The amuse was a delicious trio of spreads for crusty bread. The corn soup and Chicken Mousse appetizers were delicious. The Market salad was average. The cocktail arrived after the wine and soda, and unfortunately,... More

The food was good, not great. The presentation was very good but the service was a bit slow. It appeared the server was a little stressed. We were a party of 10.

Chicken Mousse appetizer was great. The fish dishes and game hen excellent.We especially liked the corn ice cream. The rib eye steak was bad. Too much fat and tough.

I think we found our new favourite restaurant in Ashland! We had a wonderful pre-theatre dinner here with friends. It was the best meal of our visit. And the service was superb. Will definitely return when we're next in Ashland.

Amuse has been our favorite restaurant in Ashland since we moved here in 2006. It's perfect for Special occasions, great atmosphere, small and quiet for a romantic dinner. The fish is always done to perfection-not overcooked. Sauces are always delicious. Lots of unique combinations and always beautifully presented. Don't miss the beignets for dessert-they rival the ones I had in... More

Dinner was a success at Amuse, quite near the Winchester Inn where we stayed. My husband had a fruit salad and Alaskan halibut, which he says was superb, and better than the halibut at Peerless, a couple of nights ago. I had three small plates—a prawn and potato salad, then sautéed veal sweetbreads and a salad. We all splurged with... More
