I had previously been warned by concerned friends, Amuse was expensive, but had not been told if it was worth the price. It was! It was! Worth every penny! Their wine list is impressive and their cocktails are a generous pour. The service staff is patient, friendly, efficient, quick and professional, giving us ample time to converse while deciding on...

I have eaten at Amuse many times over the years and never once been disappointed. Every selection is exquisitely prepared and a culinary delight. One salad in particular caused a serious addiction within my system: Wild baby arugula, romaine, grapefruit, avocado and fennel with a delicious vinaigrette. I wish I could have that salad every day for lunch!

This is in intimate French restaurant of high quality in downtown Ashland. Rainy Fall evening outside and we were seated in the window so we could look out at the people and lights of Ashland inside in a warm and dry spot. We ordered a bottle of Oregon Pinot to go with our meal of Ribeye and scallops. We started... More

We ate there for a special birthday celebration. A very relaxing experience, great atmosphere. Is small and not a lot of tables but you were made to feel you were the only ones in the restaurant.

Amuse is the kind of restaurant that will reseat you if you don't like the table they show you first; they will hurry you up if you need to make a quick dinner; they will slow things down if you are obviously in no hurry. They fill your glass with water just the right degree of chill. They feed you... More

Because Ashland attracts visitors for its plays, it should be no surprise that it can sustain a sophisticated little restaurant like Amuse. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is that of a Parisian bistro. Probably the best food in Ashland.

We visit this restaurant every time we visit Ashland and have never been disappointed. And this was no exception. We began by sharing an arugula salad. I had the salmon and my husband chose the gnocchi. I don't think I have ever had more perfectly prepared salmon and asked our server if the chef had used a sous vide to... More

Each year that we visit Ashland, we head for Amuse. Welcoming staff, good food & nice atmosphere. We sit in "the Side room", a bright, cheery room facing the street. We started with excellent salads, I had the rib eye steak which was done perfectly on the charcoal grill, husband had the pork loin, equally delicious. Waiter recommended a good... More

So-so service, for example, had to ask twice for our wine. A bit hard to hear, somewhat noisy. Reservations required. Small and popular. Downtown.

On a recent visit, Amuse was our last dinner of the vacation, and it turned out to be the best among a host of other wonderful dinners around town. I had a halibut dish, followed by a huckleberry pie & ice cream dessert --- wonderful. The food and service are always top notch, though I have never been a big... More
