Lovely staff great service, perfect vista from windows, quiet, refined. Good food, fine wine at the fairest prices we have seen on our holiday in a restaurant, a brilliant find would recommed to anyone. Even a good selection of vegetarian food. Coffee was slightly a let down, but we are fussy, so it is 5 stars and will not hesitate... More

Trying to find a place open for dinner on the 4th of July can be hard at times. Note to self: Amuse is always open! And what an evening: two sets of simultaneous fireworks displays, glorious humidity-free weather and a wonderful view from the terrace. Not to mention the terrific food. We started with the deviled egg appetizers. Three blue... More

The last time we came thru Richmond we went to the Virginia Fine Art Museum and at lunch time we could only get a seat at the bar, so this time we planned ahead and made a reservation. We were not disappointed. We began with soup, my husband had a carrot ginger soup and I had a white bean stew... More

After being seated on the outdoor veranda overlooking the museum campus we were quickly greeted by our friendly and knowledgeable waiter who provided us with very good service throughout our lunch. We shared... More

We have had several dinners here with friends. We usually take in a show in the Museum and then head upstairs to enjoy dinner in Amuse. We like the careful service, the clean modern atmosphere and the perfectly prepared food. Wine choices are excellent. Quiet enough to enjoy conversation with your companions. Great for a date night or catching up... More

Amuse offers delectable food in a beautiful setting in the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. I've eaten here for lunch many times, and recently went for dinner. The menu is creative, the food delicious, and the presentation beautiful! I see this as a place for a special treat, since it is not inexpensive.

The food, staff and libations are always a treat. The view is spectacular especially at sunset. We are so fortunate to have this gem.
