“Lovely food, wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I surprised my foodie boyfriend by taking him to Amuse for dinner while we visited Ashland. Neither of us were disappointed in the least!

Our server was just wonderful. Helpful, knowledgeable, and attentive.

The food was great. The gender-specific amuse bouches were lovely. We ordered sweet bread appetizers and they were excellent. Light and decadent! We both ordered the ribeye steak with string fries and vegetable side. The ribeye was cooked perfectly to our order (medium rare) and the flavors were just lovely. The area wine that our server recommended paired very nicely with the steak.

We'll definitely be back!

“Convienient to theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We booked a reservation through Open Table after checking the Trip Advisor reviews. We were in town to take in 3 plays. Amuse is just down the street from the theaters and could not have been more convenient. Service was spot on, among the best we have experienced. The complimentary starter was a surprise. Our meals were well presented and delicious. The seating was a bit tight but the other guests were compatible. All in all, a very pleasant experience, recommended for play goers.

“If you love little French restaurants, you'll rave about this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Excellent service, tables are far enough away from each other that you get privacy, yet close enough to discuss with other diners the recommendations and opinions about the theater. The food is fabulous--don't miss this when you're in town. There is something delicious there for everyone.

“A very nice restaurant in charming Ashland, Oregon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had a challenge making a reservation because the door was locked in the afternoon and no one answered the phone. We tried making the reservation online, but that didn't work for us. We finally we got their phone number (it was not posted) and left a message, and someone did call us back. That was all a bit frustrating. Our meals were very good though, so it was worth the extra effort.

“Ignore older and bad reviews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We had a delicious meal just last night with great service and good wines. OK, nothing in life is perfect, but the chef knows how to cook, and the wait staff is very professional.
