    Another excellent lunch at Amuse. Both starters (the Gnochetti and Aspargus) were excellent. My wife was very impressed with the shared Scallop Tartare, (which is my favourite dish at Amuse). The roast beef and traditional trimmings is hard to beat and Sandra loved it. My seabream with lemon butter was a great dish. We ended the meal by sharing a blackcurrant souffle with a tangy sorbet and yuzu. The food and service were first class.

    Really lovely looking restaurant inside, all seats are placed so they are far enough away from other guests. The staff are very attentive. The set menu was superb. Located in a really quiet area just out of the city centre, easy to walk to.

    We have visited Amuse before and watched Kevin’s GBM debut last year and followed it this year which clarified the need to book the dinner when it was advertised and it did not disappoint ( apart from fish could have been hotter and in a better server for trying to gain any of the sauce poured on once served but a minor detail) our favourites of the 6 courses were the risotto, deer and poached pear although all were superb. We have visited Martin Wisharts, The Kitchin, The Peat Inn & l’Enclume in Cartmel and this was up there with most memorable food and the nice touch of Kevin coming to say hello and to see if we enjoyed it was much appreciated, definitely be back again

    Delicious Sunday lunch. Nothing to fault about the food or service at all. Food was amazing and the staff were lovely. The only issue I had was the noise level. As someone with hearing issues, I was unable to hear what the staff were saying/asking. I also couldn’t hear my partner over the general noise of other diners and music. Nothing was loud but layout means the overall volume, and noise coming at me from every direction, made it very difficult for me. The restaurant is at basement level, I’ve no idea if there’s any access for those with mobility issues. All that said, I’ll definitely be back, the food was too good not to!

    As I have come to expect, the food and service were superb. The venison ragu starter was delicious, and the traditional roast beef was excellent, and good value. We added the scallop tartare, and it looks spectacular with the dried ice and created a talking point with other diners. The flavour with the lime, and the consomme is amazing.

    Lovely restaurant with a welcoming ambience Staff approachable and friendly and helpful. Food was nicely presented. We all thought that the food was s little over seasoned by was of good quality Disappointed rather the set menu had supplement charge. £3 spent to have raspberry cheesecake seemed excessive and we couldn’t see where the extra cost was coming from However overall though a lovely meal in lovely environment! Thank you

    Outstanding food let down by average service. Every dish was outstanding, but the service left a lot to be desired. Had to wait for drinks, had to chase down a bottle of wine which we eventually discovered was actually out of stock. At these prices, the service should be as good as the food.

    The food was beautiful, service was great and we did leave a tip the only criticism we would have was not being offered the choice between tap water and bottled water as paying £5.50 for a bottle of water was rather excess when tap water would have been sufficient and also adding a £15.50 service charge to the bill is a bit much as we feel we tip for good service when it’s deserved and it was great service but I would rather decide the amount myself

    We had a lovely lunch here on Sunday with the added bonus of a Roast Sirloin of Beef being on the menu. Our Itison voucher represented a very good deal if only we had managed to stick to the script but the menu was just too tempting I'm afraid. Second time we've been and would certainly go back.
