After reading a very good review about Amuse restaurant located in the Virginia Fine Arts Museum in Richmond we decided to give it a try for lunch.
After being seated on the outdoor veranda overlooking the museum campus we were quickly greeted by our friendly and knowledgeable waiter who provided us with very good service throughout our lunch.
We shared a seamed mussels appetizer and the Prince Edward mussels were perhaps the best we have ever tasted.
My wife had the Cuban Sandwich with potato salad as a side and it was very good. I had the crab cake that was in between two fried green tomatoes with a pimento cheese and salad greens side. It was fabulous.
As we were full from our lunch we declined on desert but the descriptions sounded great.

All in all a very good lunch at the museum and a good value at $41.

We have had several dinners here with friends. We usually take in a show in the Museum and then head upstairs to enjoy dinner in Amuse. We like the careful service, the clean modern atmosphere and the perfectly prepared food. Wine choices are excellent. Quiet enough to enjoy conversation with your companions. Great for a date night or catching up with friends. Art and great dining make a terrific combination!

Amuse offers delectable food in a beautiful setting in the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. I've eaten here for lunch many times, and recently went for dinner. The menu is creative, the food delicious, and the presentation beautiful! I see this as a place for a special treat, since it is not inexpensive.

Went here after work with a group of friends and it was incredible.The service was fantastic. I had the local greens salad with candied pecans and goat cheese. For the entree i had crab cakes and fried green tomatoes and for dessert I had the Chocolate Pate. I would definitely recommend and it's cool that it's in a museum. The view was fantastic as well.

The food, staff and libations are always a treat. The view is spectacular especially at sunset. We are so fortunate to have this gem.
