Ideally located on Dawson Street, Amuse is a bijoux 40-seater restaurant owned and run by a couple, Joanna & Conor Dempsey. Conor leads the kitchen to create his own modern French-Asian style cuisine, unique in style to anywhere else in the city. The ambience in the restaurant is warm and friendly, with a professional and discreet service. An interesting and delightful wine list to complement the menus. Tasting Menus are the most popular way to enjoy this special place in the heart of Dublin!
Like nothing you could ever make yourself. An art as much as a meal
A wonderful tradition of a pre-Christmas lunch with friends. The atmosphere in the dining room is perfect; busy but not overly crowded. A good ratio of waiters to patrons, attentive but not interruptive. The quality of the food was excellent, as was so the case on previous visits. The bill was steep but that was mostly due to our inability to forgo the temptation of some very good bottles, the food prices were most reasonable.
Top class - always a pleasure
Gorgeous food, the presentation was beautiful, cooked to perfection. Pieces of art. You could taste every element of the dish. Would definitely recommend.
friendly staff that great food great value. being given an umbrella as i was leaving ,as not to get soaked in the lashing rain, topped it off. would definitely go again.
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
Very imaginative and tasty meal.
Amuse deserves a Michelin star.
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!
The room is a bit underwhelming doesn’t match how good the food is.
I went for lunch with colleagues and the food was delicious. I will definitely go again!
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.
Interesting menu with excellent flavors. Fantastic service and accessible wine list. Well worth a visit.
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
Very nice lunch - well chosen wines to match the courses.
Awesome food and service. We were very happy with our visit at the Amuse restaurant.
Surprising food with an excellent service. A place to come back!
Amazing as always!
We had a very enjoyable lunch, the food was of star quality, nicely presented with interesting flavours. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and would highly recommend a visit.
One of the most interesting meals we have had in a long time. We're looking forward to coming back and trying the tasting menu!
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.
