The menu is interesting and the food is goo with good service, But. The two rooms are small and the seating is close so we got to hear all of the various conversations. Ok if you enjoy being a voyeur but then again while it is interesting to hear about using grey water to flush toilets in water stricken California,... More

You would expect to see a restaurant like this in Paris's 16th arrondissement, so finding it in Ashland Oregon by happenstance was quite a surprise. The menu was carefully crafted with the right variety of meats and seafood, and local, seasonally grown vegetables. It was elegantly presented and carefully explained by the waiter. The foie gras was cooked to perfection,... More

We love Amuse! For dinner, I had the Seared Sea Scallops and my husband had the Josper Grilled Cedar River Ribeye. Both dinners were delicious. I've had a lot of scallops, and this was the best that I've ever had! The ambiance was lovely and the service was excellent. We plan to go back because Ashland is on our route... More

Scallops and truffle roasted game hen were cooked, seasoned, plated and served with care. They have some great wines by the bottle, 1/2 bottle and glass, and our server was very knowledgeable about the winemakers and best years. If you still have room after dinner, try the mixed cheese plate. If you still have room for a dessert to share,... More

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.

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