Great food and service. Donny is the best. Great for couples.
Great food and service.
After weeks of lockdown, we chose Muse as our first fine dining experience. I am so glad we did. The whole experience was excellent. I highly recommend the arugula salad! My wife had the black cod over black rice and it was amazing. I had the veal parmigiana with spaghettini and marinara. Delicious! We paired that with a bottle of white Bordeaux!
We will be back soon! - D. Carr
The service and food were outstanding!
Wow, what a cute, unique place with quality service and food! We are so glad we found this place to celebrate our anniversary for our first trip to SC. The owner greeted us and had casual chats with us while we were there and the menu had wonderful options that were still approachable (not too foo-foo!!!).
The location is quaint and right off of King street so you can go there early and explore the neighborhood shopping and such.
We were visiting Charleston
We discovered this delightful little restaurant several years ago and each time we visit Charleston, we have The Muse on our dining list. Really enjoyed the pistachio and pomegranate trifle for dessert!
Muse is a neighborhood gem. The building is worth the visit by itself. The food is always excellent and the service is the best.
A charming reminder of the old south with a varied menu and good wine prices
Although a long time resident of Charleston, I'm almost embarrassed to say that this was my first visit to Muse. Boy have I been missing out! I absolutely LOVED this restaurant. Muse is so quaint, the decor is interesting and comfortable, the background music was perfectly selected, the service was on point and the food was simply outstanding. I can't wait to go back and this restaurant is definitely at the very top of my go-to list for restaurants in Charleston. If you haven't been, you simply must go!
Great ambience. Great food. Great service.
Awesome night out with friends in a very cool historic Charleston building!
Incredible food and wine list! Very authentic...beautiful historic building and great service!
Ten of us went to Muse before a concert, and enjoyed both the knowledgeable bartender at the wine bar, and the service there as well as in the dining room. I worried that it would take forever to serve our large group, but luckily the place was not busy at 6:00, so we were served in a timely fashion. The food was quite good, and it was an altogether lovely meal.
I wouldn’t NOT recommend it either. The experience was simply not memorable given the array of choices in Charleston.
Out server seemed disinterested in assisting us or in making our visit special in any way.
Caroline did an awesome job as our server. We started with the cheese plate and leisurely enjoyed as we chose our entrees. She was helpful with our wine selection as well as our entrees. Our group had the bolognese, veal, and carbonara. Awesome atmosphere and charming decor. I always like taking guests here!
Service started out sketchy (no water or drink order for about ten minutes) but ended up with a fantastic server, great food and wine and overall experience. Would def recommend and go back!
Everything about Muse is great. We happened to be seated next to 4 individuals who felt that it was game time. Almost shouting with some profane language made it a less than enjoyable experience.
We still love Muse, but this was unbearable. Couldn’t wait to leave
A gem of a place! I will definitely be back.
The restaurant has a ton of Charm and we had a wonderful time. The recommendations were excellent and we would stop back again.
We sat outside in about 48 degree weather and it was extremely pleasant! Their outdoor seating is in a a beautiful book away from wind with warm heaters!
I had been at Muse on three occasions prior to last night, and had very nice experiences. Last night, Valentines day, was not up to par. Perhaps the night was too busy for them.
Amazing menu and execution. Great service. Will be back to taste eveelsemon the menu!
Excellent service, especially with wine recommendations. Food was good but portions are on the smaller side. Not a huge fan of the antique setting but my wife enjoyed that. Go later at night for the best "vibe"
Noise level was very, very high. Food was OK but not outstanding. Service was good. After reading the rave reviews we were a little disappointed.
Amazing food. Love the decor. Such a great place. It’s a staple every time I’m in Charleston.
Lovely intimate dining. The food was fabulous! My entree was the sea scallops over risotto and my husband had the lamb chop, both dishes excellent and the presentation of the food, beautiful. I started off with the Bette cocktail. mmm delicious. I must try to make it at home. We shared the tomato callabrese appetizer which had a mozzarella cheese called burrata, which was new for us and quite creamy and more flavorful than ordinary mozzarella. The service was flawless. We highly recommend getting reservations and treating yourself to an exquisite dining experience.
Service and ambiance was great! I was disappointed in the appetizers (cheese plate and duck), but our meals were delicious.
Celebrated my wife's 60th birthday at Muse. A very special dinner that exceeded every expectation. Wonderful food and the very best service. I give Muse my strongest personal recommendation. Enjoy!
Had a great dinner last night at Muse! Started out with the Merguez Sausage appetizer which was very tasty, then for dinner I had the Veal Scaloppini and my husband had the Lamb Chops both dinners were excellent. The service was wonderful and we really loved the atmosphere. Muse is definitely on the top of my list for dining experiences in Charleston.
Had a wonderful dinner at Muse. It's a beautifully done older building in what used to be a dentist's office on the ground floor and residence above. We very much enjoyed the atmosphere of the setting. The only fifteen side was it was a little bit tight. Thre food was delicious. I started with the potatoe soup with an English chedder ale infused cheese. I would have locked the bowl if I was at home. My wife had the Meze platter with hummus, olives, and marinated vegetables along with an ample supply of pitas. She was kind enough to share so I can say that was also very good. The main course was a difficult decision because so much on the menu looked enticing. I settled on the piah since I don't usually get that. My wife got the crispy fish. My fish came with scallops and shrimp grilled deliciously along with mussels over saffron rice. My wife's fish wad excellent too although i only got one bite of that. Along with 2 glasses of malbec out was a delicious meal topped off with a tasty chop of coffee and a wonderful pomegranate and pistachio dessert. Oh, I don't want to forget our server, Todd. He was terrific. Very personable, knowledgeable of the menu, and willing to make suggestions. All told for appetizers, dinner, dessert, 2 glasses of wine, 2 glasses of ginger ale, and coffee and a cappuccino the bill came to $155 including tip.
Had a glass of wine at the bar when we arrived and then sat down to a wonderful meal. The service was terrific start to finish. We will definitively be back in our next visit to Charleston.
We had dinner before the Three Dog Night concert the other night. We should have stayed at Muse! The concert was terrible but our meal at Muse was awesome! Jenny was our waitress and her husband Rob was the sommelier. We couldn’t have asked for better food, service and conversation. Muse is a great place and we will be back!
The service was excellent and the ambiance was great. The food was below our expectations. We were there Restaurant Week and ordered off that menu. The food appeared to have been prepared in advance and warmed up. I wonder if our experience would have been different if we had ordered off the main menu.
Service, specifically the waiter, was exceptional.
The food was excellent, and the bar tender was great.
Amazing experience. The food was great, the service was good and the atmosphere is pleasant. Would love to go back again and will soon!
We had a wonderful experience at Muse during restaurant week! The food was creative and tasty! Our waiter was wonderful and so helpful!
Maybe. Food was good but starters and main course were stone cold. And very noisy. They did comp which was appreciated.
Muse is a very energetic fun restaurant. The food was excellent. Everything we had we was well prepared. We were there during restaurant week so the service was a little uneven but we enjoyed ourselves. We sat out on the patio with the heaters on (it was a pretty cold evening) and we were quite comfortable. It was also very loud inside the restaurant so we enjoyed the quiet outside with the few other hearty diners. It’s in a great part of town and we enthusiastically would recommend it if you are visiting.
Great service, ambiance was wonderful being that you are in an old Charleston house. Restaurant Week menu was delicious. Get the Sweet Potato Gnocchi!
