You truly must add a visit to Amuse when you view an exhibit at VMFA. Not only is the food terrific, but the ambiance and view are relaxing and lovely.

We had an excellent meal and the restaurant wasn’t too loud four conversation. The menu was unusual and fun. We will probably return to the restaurant even if we aren’t attending a museum exhibit.

The good reviews did not disappoint. The restaurant is located in the upper level of the VMFA, with a splendid view of the sculpture garden.
