Enjoyed the art and the food. Don't miss it if you are in Richmond. The absinthe drinks are unusual and amazing. There are changing exhibits often in a walkable city.

My wife had a beautiful lunch out on the porch of this nice restaurant. To find something of this quality connected to a Museum venue is a special reward. The VFMA is a quality establishment and so is this restaurant.

Another nice place to eat in an Art Museum. Take a break from viewing the art and have a great lunch or dinner here. A nice picture window to view the grounds of the museum as you eat a great meal!

Our first time at Amuse and anticipated a great experience after friends highly recommended it. We were prepared for the higher prices for lunch entrees, but the portions were small. We ordered the curried fried oysters as an appetizer to share. It had good flavor,...More
