Because there are only 2 sittings, you're very limited in what times you can eat. As a result, the 12 o'clock sitting was dead which was a shame as it damaged the atmosphere. Maybe they should just allow bookings as people choose.

Truly excellent food. Beautifully thought out cooked and delivered. My local friends commented that more Irish & locally sourced ingredients would be appreciated

We had the tasting menu. Our waiter chose some excellent wines too. Couldn't have been better. I especially love the friendly atmosphere, since I find most fine dining restaurants a bit too formal.

After 9 tasting courses, you’re so full but still want more! The food is deliciously fabulous. Devine food in a wonderful ambience. Staff are amazing too, very attentive but not in your face.

We had an amazing night, went for a tasting menu and we were both speechless, the rich pallet of tastes made us go back to the childhood memories. Service was amazing not only friendly but also professional and it added a lot to overplay experience! We will definitely go back!

Really like the place, the food and particularly the staff. Looking forward to the new menu, you should update your web site, that’s the only moan.

We had a really enjoyable lunch last Saturday, the food was exquisite, genuinely some of the best food we have had in Dublin. Unfortunately the service was a little lacking, the Front of House Declan really didnt make much of an effort. We asked his recommendation on wine and dessert and he came across as being quite lack lustre and disengaged. The atmosphere was a bit off, particularly when we first arrived but picked up a bit when more people came in. The background music was a bit strange (boyzone etc) which didn't fit the tone of the restaurant and we both felt a better choice here could have really helped the atmosphere. Overall the food was so good that it made up for the other negatives and we hope to be back very soon

We went here for my wife’s birthday. We left really unhappy. We had the 9 course tasting menu and tasting wines. We had some amuse bouche, but were not offered a drink. When brought up we were told in a rude and condescending manner that these were complementary and the wine was with the tasting menu. It was 40 minutes before we had a glass of wine. Firstly I’ve been to plenty of very good restaurants here and abroad, so do not condescend to me, I know that they are complementary. Secondly do you think it is acceptable to wait 40 minutes for a glass of wine???? There should be one given complimentary given we were doing the tasting menu and accompanying wines. Thirdly, do you think it is acceptable to have supplements on a tasting menu??? Absolutely ridiculous. Between the front of house (one particular person) and the wine wait completely ruined the dinner and the experience. There are far better places to eat in Dublin. Don’t bother coming back with some lame mgmt response. Sort the place out or you won’t last.

We had a really great evening at Amuse. Service and food were fabulous. After we arrived, we made a late change to our booking to add a third person who was arriving later than us, this was dealt with seamlessly and professionally. The food was sublime - every mouthful was a delight. We’ll definitely be back on our next visit to Dublin. Thanks Amuse - you were great.

We had our anniversary dinner here and selected the nine course tasting menu. My husband and I have been to some of the best fine dining restaurants and Amuse could possibly be one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Each course was amazing - not one disappointed. Lovely staff who made the experience even better. Thank you Amuse, we will be back when we are next in Dublin!

Very pleased with the service we received. We had a few clients over for dinner, and all of them said it was among the top dining experiences of their lives. The service from the waiters were impeccable - very attentive and polite - and it was a nice, calm atmosphere in the restaurant. I would definitely go here again.
