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.

Utmerket mat. Savnet bedre presentasjon av rettene. Noe vanskelig å forstå tilleggsutgift "Supplement". Noe overraskende at man for to personer måtte betale 100 euro dersom man ikke møtte opp.

I don't tend to write 'reviews' but am happy to make an exception in this case. Amuse is the best restaurant in Dublin in my opinion. In a relaxed setting, the combination of flavours served up puts it well ahead of the competition.

The food was delicious but the restaurant was empty therefore lacked atmosphere. I’d like to go back on a weekend night.

We have already said it, however, will gladly repeat that Amuse truly deserves a Michelin Star. The service was phenomenal, the food and wine spectacular, particularly the venison, which I am still dreaming of. We look forward to returning!

Pluses: Intense flavors and beautiful combinations, served in an atmosphere of calm gentility. Minuses: It felt slightly less than substantial, as a meal.

Excellent food and wine! Amuse bouche was fabulous! Sommelier by himself serving everyone? We would have liked more water on our table. We really enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back again soon. Would love to see return of the marshmallows that you used to serve as well as the chocolates and jellies (which were delicious) with coffee/tea.

The tasting menu was really delicious, imaginative, fun food, with nicely matched wines. The red with fish didn't really work for us and the quinoa cracker was too chewy. Otherwise, it was all great. The restaurant was far too cold. I don't know whether it's good value for money because I don't usually spend this much on a meal.
