    With their extensive wine selection and numerous dinner entrees, this is a great place for a night out. We had the fruit and cheese plate appetizer which was a great compliment to the bottle of wine.

    I've been to the Muse several times since NMS took over and I must say the food and wine selections have definitely gotten much better. The food is always tasty and the happy hour menu selection is great. Muse has a very extensive wine list which allows everyone to find something they like. Above all, the service and management are far and above what they used to be. The servers are very attentive, management is always walking around the restaurant ensuring guests have a memorable experience.

    This was recommended by our attorney who works downtown. We LOVED it! Wonderful place. We certainly will go back! The seafood chowder was the best I've ever had!! So yummy!

    It said online it was open and when we showed up for dinner the bartender said she was only open for happy hour. If I didn't have a gift certificate I wouldn't go back. Very disappointing

    Better when the Marx Bros ran it. Now only beer/wine. No music on first Friday. Service was still excellent but food was not quite as good.
