“Love this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I followed Hari from Nage. I loved his food at Nage and even more at a(Muse). The menu changes with available produce. On my last trip I had a marvelous acorn soup, and I am consistent with the pickled vegetable appetizer. I prefer small plates at this restaurant, as opposed to entrees, primarily due to the creativity involved and the ability to sample.

“Wonderful find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

This is a delightful little restaurant and bar. The menu choice is not very comprehensive but the dishes offered are quite unique and the taste/presentation is exceptional. Service is efficient and friendly.

“Food as an art form without the pretense”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

a(MUSE) is one of the best restaurants in downtown Rehoboth. My wife and I go to the beach almost every weekend and we enjoy eating out. On our most recent visit to a(MUSE), we went for Happy Hour and were able to try a number of great dishes from this highly recommended (well deserved/justified) restaurant. We highly recommend you order a variety of the small and larger plates to give you a chance to experience the incredible depth of this restaurant. We also recommend reviewing the excellent mixed drink list!

“A Foodie's Delight with a Personal Touch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

(a)MUSE has an intriguing menu; a lot of creative thought has obviously gone into it. It also shows great care for its customers. On a recent visit, I began by ordering a very complicated appetizer; after about ten minutes (very acceptable in this atmosphere, with speciality drinks and good focaccia bread) the server returned to tell us that the chef was not satisfied with the way the appetizer had "sat" -- it was a potted chicken dish, so that was important. He offered to create another appetizer based on what I liked about the original, and charged only a fraction of the price for it by way of apology. Dinner was gnocchi with turnips, apples and brussels sprouts. Amazing. Touched with paprika honey. The only reason I am giving a rating of four instead of five is that the dessert, a deconstructed pineapple upside down cake, was only so-so. A caveat: the main courses are few; the variety and number of first courses, however, more than make up for that.

“Great Happy Hour on Baltimore Ave.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Highly recommend trying out a(Muse) for Happy Hour as it provides a less expensive way to experience this restaurant's great food. Great drinks and a wonderful atmosphere. Cheers. In addition to their early Happy hour, they also have a late night option that begins at 9pm.
