Nice place for something quick to eat

Nice place. Set up in a cafeteria style. The food is good but not spectacular. It can get very crowded.

We had a lovely champagne cocktail first, then I had poached eggs on corned beef hash, and my wife had fish -- delicious. The service was grand and the all glass enclosed restaurant gives great views of the museum area.

Interesting meal choices that change daily. Nice for lunch or dinner while visiting the museum. Servings are conservative, service is good

After several mediocre meals on a recent trip, we decided to have lunch at Amuse on the 4th of July. It was excellent. Good service, lovely view of the grounds, and great meal. It's really a plus to have such a good restaurant in the museum.

Went here before touring the museum and was very impressed was a busy lunch crowd so we ended up at the bar. That ended up being a very good thing as the bartender was both very knowledgeable about the food and the museum. I ended up getting a couple of appetizers and both were very good. Service was quite good... More

Four of us enjoyed dinner here, with one of us celebrating a birthday. Those who drink alcohol enjoy the cocktail menu, enjoying the Greenhouse Gin, Lazy Daisy & Garden Party. We shared five yummy little plates - spiced pecans, tater tots, fries, pimento cheese and deviled eggs. I had the rockfish and the other three all enjoyed the crabcakes. Our... More

It is a very good restaurant in the museum. It is convenient if viewing a collection during the week.

We had a reservation for a late lunch, so, not at peak time. We waited 40 min after our reservation time to be seated , and were attended to 15 min after that, and waited another 20 for the food to arrive. I was hungry. I ordered the scallops. 4 tiny scallops arrived w a minuscule salad...that was it! Not... More

I went with work colleagues to this restaurant today for a celebratory lunch. The restaurant is quite fancy in its ambiance etc., which makes sense as it is located in the beautiful Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. I had checked the menu beforehand and was seriously considering having the Grilled Ratatouille. It came with creamy spinach which I was not... More
