“The chef has his heart in the right place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

I've eaten at many great restaurants throughout Rehoboth over the years, and a(muse) is definitely one of Rehoboth's finest. Be aware that this place is not for everyone, and there will be people who like nothing on the menu. It's not a place to take the kids I imagine, unless they have developed an apetite for sweetbread. Dishes at a(muse) are quite different, but in a genuinely creative and artistic way. I'll admit, I had a couple dishes that were so-so and a couple that were great. The great dishes were fantastic. The so-so dishes had a good bite, then a bad bite, then a good bite, then a bad bite...But only because my palet is not as refined and sophisticated as others might be...I can understand that. What is absolutely clear after one visit, is that the chef and owner has his heart in the right place. I hope he keeps following his heart, because he will be very successful in the end. Kudos!

“Love it! Great place, and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Know the chef from his former restaurant. This is was my first time eating here and was absolutely outstanding. It's amazing the creativity and the ingrediants. I sampled several starters and small plates. My husband had the grouper and loved it - and the scallop dish was out of this wolrd! All foodies need to check this place out. Only small compliant was that it was a little warm in there tonight.

“Great food, terrible service, left out some advertised ingredients in dinner.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Food was outstanding. On second visit, no peppers as advertised with small plate. Another dish promising "duck egg". Was served with obvious chicken egg. There is a huge difference. Service was abominable , time wise. Won't go back in spite of excellent meal. For what they charge, there ate several better choices in Tehoboth with similar quality food.

“Horrible food! Not worth your time.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

The food did not have a good taste and the variety was horrific! The service was lousy and not what gay people enjoy for Rehoboth Beach. Cafe Sole was much better than Amuse. I am not amused at all!

“Engagement dinner couldn't have been better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

So I booked a reservation at a(Muse) to celebrate the engagment to my fiance earlier in the day. Made the reservation online after viewing the eclectic menu and perfect location in downtown Rohobeth Beach. We couldn't have been happier with this dining experience! The servers all stopped by to say hello, the food was the most original (presentation and taste) that we have ever had and we both have lived in New York City and Philadelphia. Inspired creations that we enjoyed were A Perfect Snack (eggplant garlic puree), Nature's Parcel (squash and quinoa...outstanding!), A Day Boat (super fresh scallops) and School Is Out (perfectly seared Tuna with baby egglant and delectable sauce paired perfectly together). Each new plate brought excitement to our paletes, and the Lavender Fields dessert was a perfect grand finale. If you want outstanding friendly service, food that satisfy & amuse, a thoughtful wine menu in a perfect Rehobeth Beach downtown location this is the place for you! You will not be dissapointed!
