My boyfriend and I had a great meal at this restaurant during the off season (January). Service was great, food was delicious, very enjoyable. Being one of the only restaurants in the area that is still open during the off season, it was packed for dinner. The only downside is that it was very noisy, so much so that we had to repeat ourselves to be heard over the chatter. There was a very large and loud group sitting in the center of the room that was responsible for most of the noise, but the acoustics of the room make it so all of the sounds echo and bounce off of the walls. It would be helpful to add some sort of texture/materials to the walls or floor to absorb some of the noise.

Your rating query did not ask about the creativity of the cuisine which is worth mentioning. The menu offerings were inventive but avoided dishes that try too hard to be trendy - faux cuisine. The chicken with artichoke was a wonderful marriage. Also, we were pleasantly surprised by their early bird prix fix even on a weekend. The waitstaff was cheerful without being saccharine.
Muse is a good place to dine. There was live music which was enjoyed by the bar crowd and mercifully shielded from us with glass doors which allowed for conversation as we ate.

None of us in our party of four had ever been here before, but when we walked in the door, it was clear we were in a locally popular establishment. Many restaurants in this town were closing for the season, but Muse was in full swing. The food arrived promptly, except for one person’s in our party whose dinner arrived 5 minutes later. Not too terrible. All of our dishes were delicious and nicely presented. We would welcome the chance to return here.

We arrived a bit before our reservation, and were seated promptly. We requested the prix fixe menu to compare it to the regular menu. We ordered from the prix fixe menu. The vegetable soup (chicken base) was good but a bit greasy tasting and a small portion. The meatball appetizer consisted of three nice sized, tasty meatballs. Our drinks arrived a bit later than they should’ve but the wine pour was generous and the rum punch packed a punch in the full mason jar in which it was served. The warm, crusty roll was delicious served with selections of butter, olive oil, and sun dried tomato spread. For main dishes, the salmon scallopini was good, but everything on the dish needed salt badly. The salmon was not really noteworthy; it was just good. It sat atop a nice amount of pea purée and was surrounded by a couple of fingerling potatoes, Brussels sprouts and some other vegetable I couldn’t identify. The Brussels sprouts were so undercooked and tough that I could barely get my fork into them. I told the waitress and she apologized and said she’d get me a side of Brussels Sprouts to make it up to me. When they came, they were nicely roasted, deliciously seasoned (much better than what had been served with my dish), but only slightly more cooked, still tougher than they should’ve been. I guess the chef just doesn’t know how long to cook Brussels Sprouts. On the second main dish plate, plain baked salmon, there was a scoop of delicious mashed potatoes that was very creamy and rich, and some ratatouille that had nice cherry tomatoes in it.
For dessert, the rice pudding with strawberries and raspberries and fresh whipped cream was just perfect for sharing. Overall, having ordered from the special menu (only available, I believe, from 5-6:30pm), we felt was good value for our money, especially since Montauk restaurants are fairly uniformly pricey. The service was very good and it was nice to be able to hear each other talk. We were happy with our meal and would go back.

Mixed experience. Noisy due to a few cackling women and an annoying table with 3 kids not being properly monitored by their parents. Grilled salmon very good but portion size not quite equivalent to the price. Pork chops very good. Vegetable portions very small although also very good. Service a bit nonchalant. When parents are allowing kids to walk around their table in circles with napkins draped over their heads and drum on the table , the staff needs to intervene to preserve a relaxing experience for their guests.

I had read about Muse and the food didn't disappoint. All of the food was amazing. I had the shrimp and mussels fra diavalo. Off the charts. Others had the pork chops and the scallops all great, so the food is awesome. The service not so much. It took 10+ minutes for the server to come over and take our drink order. She was very nice but not very attentive. The noise level was very high and the ambiance was just ok. I would definitely go back and hope that the service was better.

This is the first time that we have been at Muse. The recommendations were relatively mixed when we reviewed the restaurant. we have been coming to Montauk every summer for years. The décor of the restaurant was excellent. neat lighted bar. we sat outside and I would recommend this because one of the sections inside was a little noisy. By far, the best restaurant that we have been to at Montauk.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the service was epic. Greeted warmly by the genial hostess, we were seated straightaway and offered an expansive 4 top near the window, awarding us a front row seat to the ensuing dramatic storm outside.

The FOH staff was brisk and attentive, with warm, sincere manners that made my partner and I feel very comfortable right away.

The restaurant didn't have the homey feel I often favor in restaurants (somewhere I can let my hair down) but it was decorated smartly (my partner and I disagreed about the led bar) clean and neat as a pin.

Everything was perfect, from the linen to the smallware and it made us feel that we were dining in capable hands.

The wine list (I'm in the business) was quite nice, albeit a bit safe. We started with cocktails and both the Watermelon Cucumber Martini and the Mint Julep were right on the money, another good sign.

Apps were Cauliflower Fritti and Street Corn Fritters. My first fritter, disappointingly, was ice cold in the middle, intimating that they were perhaps previously frozen, but still, really tasty and quite fresh, so even if they were frozen I suspect they are made on premise and thoughtfully so. Cauliflower: A+

My main was Diver Scallops on a bed of Pea and Parmesan Risotto and garnished w/ fresh pea shoots. The Scallops were prepared (seared) quite nicely. Risotto was flavorful and well textured, a great pairing for the seriously fresh scallops, in turn pairing well with a glass of local Chardonnay. My partner had a magnificently dressed and composed beet and parm salad and a side of the Risotto.

We ordered chocolate Mousse for dessert. It was my partner's birthday and without me having to ask they bought out the plate with HBD written on it in chocolate and a candle, very thoughtful and sweet.

Overall, I recommend this place for couples or groups of adults who are looking for a crowd-pleaser w/ impeccable quality and solid options. We'll be back if they'll have us.
