When should an amuse bouche be served?

I've had at least two in recent memory served to me the moment I sat down, before I even looked at the wine list. Most I've had arrive at least after drinks have been served if not after the whole meal has been ordered (but preceding the arrival of the app, of course).

I find having food set before me the second I sit down a bit jarring & off-putting, but it occurs to me I don't really know what the protocol should be.
