Went with my 2 daughters and a friend. Service was slow which we I understand because many restaurants are understaffed now. When our waiter finally came to us he was so rude. My daughter ordered a medium rare steak which arrives well done. We understood again as mistakes happen. The steak was taken away and the same steak returned cooked more! We laughed but then this happened 2 more time! The owner came over and said the first one was fine. The chef came out to say the first was fine and now we have to wait a long time because the kitchen is busy. I’ve never experienced such a thing. We didn’t want to return food , my daughter was hungry. What happened to the customer is always right? And just to be clear I hardly ever send anything back at a reasonable

The food portions were considerably large for the price per plate. Although, the dinner price for two was more than your average dinner price, the food was exceptionally delicious and the service was great. I highly recommend this restaurant but make reservations in advance otherwise you will truly miss out on a great food experience.

Overall, I was a little disappointed in the overall experience. Food was good, not great as in the past.
Outdoor table was subject to the noise of the Jitney idling for 30 minutes.
Definitely not as favorable as past experiences.

Had a wonderful meal and good service last night. PEI mussels were tasty, as was the grilled octopus. Has a well seasoned perfectly grilled medium rare steak and shrimp scampi for our mains. The cheese cake chimichanga dessert was fantastic!

Have always wanted to dine here but always hard to get a reservation. Now I know why. The food was great and drinks just as good. Enjoyed our food then hung out at the bar for a few. The bartenders where great and very attentive. Will definitely be back.

This is second time we have eaten here, the food is good but personal there is so many other places that are better. And the prices here are really for the look of the place, it is beautiful inside and out. But food average. Don't think I would pay $217 for 2 adults and 1 child again.

Excellent service and food. Several steps above harvest on fort pond and navy beach, where the ambiance was better than the food. Quality food and cocktails! Peter’s recommendations were spot on!

We come to Montauk a few times each summer, and make sure to always it at Muse at the End. We were there on Tuesday, July 6th. I had made a reservation for 6:30 at a high top table in the bar area. Great atmosphere, but the dining room is lovely too. We arrived at around 6:15, and they seated us immediately. We had a lovely server ( I’m sorry I forgot her name), but she was wonderful! Very sweet and efficient. We started with two glasses of wine. A Josh Cabernet and a Wolffer rose. Nice pours. The we shared the BLT salad
( I have to have this every time we come ). It’s so good! It comes out stacked on a plate over a toasted special bread. The dressing is a delicious blue cheese dressing. To die for! Then I had the shrimp scampi over pasta. I think it was like 7 large shrimp over pasta with spinach in a light but very flavorful lemon butter sauce. My husband had something called chicken under a brick. It was 2 very nice size pieces of tender roasted chicken served with whipped potatoes and asparagus. Very good. We were too full for dessert, but we saw some nice ones going to other tables. This restaurant isn’t cheap, I think our dinner for
3 glasses of wine, the BLT salad, and the two dinners was like 145 dollars, but it was worth every penny. Can’t wait to return!

We had a great dinner here celebrating my husband's birthday. This place was not on my radar; I made the reservation at the last minute and was very pleasantly surprised. The first good sign happened before we even entered, when one of the staff, seeing us struggling, came out and offered very kindly to take our picture. We sat at a high top table near the dark, cozy bar, which was lively and had an excellent bartender, as we found out after the first sip of our spicy margaritas. Our waitress Natasha had a big friendly smile for us and was attentive and efficient. Water was filled and plates were cleared with haste. Our food was really delicious, well prepared, seasoned and plated beautifully. The fried appetizers (corn poppers and oysters) we had were hot and crisp on the outside and perfectly tender on the inside. The grilled octopus was also perfectly tender and accompanied by a wonderful saffron sauce. Our entrees, Montauk sea bass and striped bass were also tasty; the bass was slightly over cooked, but the sauce it was served with saved it. We had the bread pudding with miso whipped cream and the cheesecake chimichanga which were both quite delicious. Thanks for a warm experience on a cold chilly night, Muse!

Our family dinner at The Muse last night was absolutely wonderful. The service was attentive and professional. The food was beautifully prepared and every dish we ordered was delicious. The mussels with artichoke hearts (amazing); Corn Poppers (!!!); 1/2 Chicken Under A Brick (juicy, crispy, tender, velvety); Whole Pan-Fried Special Snapper (cooked to perfection). We felt like we were known as regulars here, as every server and wait person checked in regularly to see if we needed anything, and with a smile. It was truly a delightful experience and look forward to dining here again.

Dined indoors in the dining room. Excellent, friendly and prompt service. Great value since we ordered 4 appetizers + 1 side to try more dishes. The signature mussels are delicious, unique and not to be missed. Beautiful interior with a classy and inviting vibe. We didn’t have our kids with us but we sat next to two tables with kids where they happily brought straw cups and delivered kid-requested type meals like chicken fingers and fries and plain pasta.

The Cauliflower Tempura appetizer was deliciously seasoned and the Grilled Octopus was nicely made. The Fish Tacos were tasty, but two of these for an appetizer is overkill. Suggest the Shrimp Scampi served with pasta in a light creamy sauce. The Sea Bass was ok. Try the Muse Rum Punch! It’s one of the best in Montauk!

First the good, the food!

But more importantly, the service was Terrible! Not attentive, made mistakes, unapologetic, and somewhat rude!

Value, just OK!

Our additional to go order was fine.

If you must eat here, then get it to go!

What a lovely place! I’ve been to
Muse twice and both times it was not disappointing..food wise. The staff is attentive and the ambiance and decor is contemporary meets rustic. It’s a relaxing atmosphere: it could be intimate between two people and at the same time it’s nice for a friends get together or a family gathering. The food is excellent, especially the octopus app and the shrimp scampi pasta dish with the most delicious light cream sauce. I highly recommend it and this summer, I’ll definitely be back.

The food and service were excellent. We both had fish and it was very tasty. Opposite ends of the fish spectrum. I had fish and chips and she had bass. The prices were fair for what you get. Not dressy/upscale but not sloppy casual. Just very pleasant.
