Great food, accommodating staffWent to Muse after going to Threshold theater. We got to Muse early and even though we were early AND had added two people to our party, they seated us without complaint. There were finally nine of us in all and we enjoyed our appetizers, entres and dessert. We had shellfish, pastas, chicken, and I noticed all the plates were empty when they were removed. My only negative comment is that they served our $12/glass wine in the wrong glasses. I asked them why and the waiter said they were out of white wine glasses--something I think they should correct.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial atmosphere and amazing foodI loved the colorful yet elegant interior of muse. The service was great and our waiter offered us an excellent wine. The food was just outstanding and it was a pleasure to eat in such a quiet and bright place like Muse.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVisiting After Many YearsI grew up in South Carolina, updstate, and used to go to Charleston to visit my grandparents, but never went as a tourist. I've been living in the north for 40 years now and recently went back for a visit - as a tourist. I found this restaurant on google earth as it was only a block away from where we were staying. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The place itself is charming, as if you are in Europe. The service was impeccable - the waitress we had was extremely knowledgeable and had recently been abroad working in a winery. The food was delicious (of course being in Charleston we had the fish) and perfectly prepared and presented. And the other people in the small room where we sat were friendly. Would definitely go again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it... Great serviceLoved it... Great service and food with Mediterranean flavor4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMuse never disappoints!I love Muse and always enjoy dining there. There were four of us, recently, and everyone of us was absolutely pleased with our choices...watermelon salad, shrimp and pasta, lamb, fresh fish, decadent chocolate dessert that we shared. We sat outside, on the enclosed patio and the ambiance was wonderful! Our waiter was helpful and attentive even though the restaurant was fairly busy. This is the restaurant I always take my out-of-town guests to because it has everything going for it - location, ambiance, fantastic food and service...can't be beat!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceExcellent food and service in an intimate setting. Flavors were really outstanding, showcasing the thoughtfulness and talent in the kitchen.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful meal, fantastic,We had a wonderful meal, fantastic, friendly service and a quaint tucked away table ( we had requested on Open Table) to enjoy our romantic evening. We will definitely return.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCompliments to the chef and staffThis restaurant was a great new experience for our group of 7. We have been to Charleston many times but this restaurant was by far one of the best dining experiences we have had in that city, from the appetizers to the desserts.
We will be back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waiter was very knowledgeableThe waiter was very knowledgeable about the food, and had good recommendations. The quality of our entrees - veal scallopini and the lamb chops - was very good. The dessert list was limited, but the items we chose were very tasty.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and ourThe food was great and our server Donnybwas incredible!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal at MuseWe had a fabulous dinner at Muse. We were late for our reservation, but they quickly accommodated us at another, even better table. Our waiter was helpful and informative, the food was delicious and served quickly, and the desserts were out of this world.
It was a nice ending to a wonderful girls' weekend in Charleston!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful find, lives up to reviewFour friends and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner Thursday evening. The hit of the night was the crispy kale salad. All entrees were delicious. Two had the catch of the day and ate every bite. There was disappointment that swordfish was not on the menu, but we all left well fed and happy. That might have been because we had the chocolate tort and the gelato for dessert.
Our party was allowed to split the kale salad. That was so very nice. I would hope all restaurants in your group allow the spitting of salads, entree's, etc. In this world of obesity, no one needs to eat all of the generous servings. Also, as long as there is hunger in America, no food should be thrown away.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the entire experience.We enjoyed the entire experience.

Very much enjoyed our experience.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visit was impressive.Our first visit was impressive. We will definately return on our next visit to Charleston. A great place for a quiet meal.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and service!I was here with a group, and we used the second floor private room which worked out very nicely. HOWEVER, had it been just my girlfriend and I, I would have requested the outside balcony on the 2nd floor. It's a small porch that will only fit 2 people at the small table, but is perfectly romantic on a pleasant night. Seriously, if you're trying to impress your lady... this is the place.
Food was great also... Every one of our group loved their dish. I had roasted lamb on a pumpkin puree bed... And the Gnudi (very similar to gnocchi) that my girlfriend got was delicious too.
Service was excellent and the waiter was very attentive and nice. All in all, a great experience!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinately a Date Night Repeat!It was our first time at the Restaurant. We had tickets to a Play two doors down and found the restaurant advertised when purchasing the tickets online. The atmosphere was Romantic. The occassion was "date night" with my Husband. After the "Play" we returned to the restaurant (to see the cast) and to top the night off. This time, we took a tour "upstairs" of this converted house. We decided then, to introduce others to our "new spot". My Husband thoroughly enjoyed himself and asked what I have planned for next month!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful find. ExcellentA wonderful find. Excellent Italian and Mediterranean cuisine served amidst the colorfully painted walls of an old Charleston town home. The food and the service were both excellent. It appeared to be a popular bar spot as well. I would recommend.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMrestaurant is in a cozy historicrestaurant is in a cozy historic house with piazza converted into a nice patio for drinks or dining. many older period decorations still grace the restaurant, good, varied menu; attentive, friendly, efficient, but not obtrusive, service from cheerful staff.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, great food andGreat place, great food and wine list.

It was our first time there, and we will definitely go back again.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI've lived here for six yearsI've lived here for six years and have walked past this place many times. They offer a Mediterranean flavor and rock it. The wait staff describes every dish as if they were preparing it themselves. The Wine list is simple but impressive and they offer wines you can't find in town. Needless to say, I won't walk pass again. Planning on returning soon.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMit has been awhilke sinceit has been awhilke since we had gone to Muse. It was outstanding. I mahd the sea bass and my wife had the lambchops. They both were excellent, some of the best lamb chops ever in Charleston.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem that is often missedA gem that is often missed in a city of wonderful places to dine. Muse just doesn't get all the limelight that it really deserves. Start in the bar and dine anywhere in the different rooms and you will be delighted.12/28/2012 12:00:00 AMThe Best for B-days!It was my husband's B-day, and I put down on the comment section to acknowledge him, and they came out with a cup of ice cream with a candle, and I though that was cute.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
