Vacation dinner that was fabulous! Highly recommend’
LOVE this hidden gem! The food is incredible and the wine list is extensive. We went twice during our trip to Charleston.
Disappointed with the service and value. Entrees were good but starters were ok and portions small. Overpriced for what you get and not enough server staff.
Very pleasant comfortable charleston restaurant. Nice venue with multiple rooms which provide different ambiance in each room. Varied menu with home made fresh pasta. Need to try the gnocchi!....
I dine there frequently while in Charleston on business. The staff treat me like a family member which is a very nice touch. Dining is always the one of if not the best meals I ever have when in town. I dine there repeatedly ever week while in town due to the quality of the entire menu, coupled with the extreme graciousness of the owner and entire staff. I consider the Muse dining experience to be one of my overall best encountered during my frequent travels nationally and internationally for a local airplane company in Seattle. Muse doesn't raise the dining bar, they establish the bar for all others in Charleston to follow for the perfect intimate dining experience. Their Veal Scaloppini should be considered a major food group and is exquisite. Thank you Muse for making me feel special each and every encounter....
The food was excellent, cooked to perfection. The professional wait staff were delightful. It was a very busy night (graduation weekend, weddings, etc.) but we did experience any delays. Excellent value for the exceptional quality of food and attentive staff. I cannot wait to return!
Every single thing on the menu is amazing, you can’t go wrong!
Food and service was phenomenal!
Many people have told us about Muse. It is an intimate space both inside and out. Service was outstanding. I suggest stay with their specialties. I had the New York Strip... was OK, prepared as requested but not worth deviating from other dishes they serve. The crispy sea bass was served whole (some may not like that) bland, nothing to write home about. Server, Rob, was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and attentive. Will give it another shot with other dishes.
We experienced the worst service. The waitress apologized for the delay in getting us our first drink but the speed of service never got any better through the entire meal.
First negative was the drunk group of diners/drinkers “greeting” us as we stepped on the porch saying in a drunken state “welcome to Muse”. Dinner meals were good (tilefish special and gnocchi with shrimp). Dessert was outrageously good (chocolate torte with strawberry rhubarb sauce). Super loud group in room next to us. Honored my request for window table. The waitress was very pleasant and knowledgeable when we saw her but she had all tables upstairs as well as a couple downstairs. Did the best she could considering she had to keep running up and down the stairs. We realize it is an old house and appreciate the historical essence but did feel like it needed a little update and to be a little cleaner.
We have favorite regular restaurants in Charleston such as Magnolias, Eli’s Table, SNOB, Hominy Grill, Poogans Porch, and we always like to try some place we haven’t been before.
A beautiful restaurant all about atmosphere with wonderful service but know the food is just average.
Excellent food and service. We were impressed with creative menu options and range of Mediterranean cuisine options. The meals were fantastic and the atmosphere was quiet and casual. Strongly recommend this for apps and or full meal. Bar is small, but fun!
Food, drinks, service, all great as usual! Except for the obnoxiously loud drunk people at the table next to us outside it was the perfect evening!
Grouper was sensational! Linguini was good, and the service was good
Food was very good and it was a cozy atmosphere sitting on the porch. Service was spotty and we didn’t feel welcoming in this neighborhood type spot. Owner was preaching politics at the bar, really inappropriate.
My husband and I ate there for the first time this week. The entire experience was very enjoyable. They honored my request for a window table, the wait staff was very informative, friendly and efficient, the historic house was charming, and the food was delicious!
Food was fabulous and the service excellent.
Food was not overly impressive. What I found most appalling was the mark up on the wine (~ 5x retail cost). They boasted that they are known for their wine, however, what we sampled was not impressive and the value was obviously poor
The food was good. The service was okay. They changed waiter/waitress on us a couple of times. Sometimes really slow, but overall was a good meal, good ambiance, enjoyable. We went for my husband's birthday, while we were in Charleston.
food was okay, overpriced and very noisy could not hear each other
We had an excellent meal - the trout was the standout, but everything was delicious.
I always have a great meal at Muse! The food is delicious and the service is the best!
My wife and I visited Charleston and ate at several very nice restaurants. Excellent food and service. Although thus restaurant had a very nice bartender( we chose to eat at the bar), the food was good not outstanding. My wife’s fish was good and plentiful, but my pasta was hardly enough for an appetizer no less a main course. I mentioned it to the bartender and he said would you want to order another. Not for $20. He never offered any more. I also found a piece of plastic in my meal which he took no action to rectify.
Just a lovely restaurant near the Renaissance Hotel. Small,quaint and historic. The food was great and the service was wonderful.
Recommend the Muse to everyone!
Restaurant very unique, great bartender and excellent cocktails. The food side is to die for! I don't live in Charleston but every time I visit I make a reservation. I have never been disappointed in the last three years eating there.
The wait staff was a little slow to begin with. We had to wait what seemed like a long time, to first get our water glasses filled, but the service improved somewhat after that. The food, however, was outstanding! The scallops, trout and crispy sea bass were excellent. The bouillabaisse while good was a bit skimpy in volume.
So good we are going back tomorrow! We were disappointed we couldn’t get in to Husk or Magnolia, but no more! Perfect portion sizes. Wish they would get baguette s from Christophe ‘s next door rather than theirs.
The food was great! Service could have been more attentive. The corkage fee was a little high compared to other restaurants in Charleston. All in all, we will return again.
One of our favorites in Charleston! We love the food and the character of the building. Usually eat there a couple of times per month.
Great food and service! We took our time ordering and didn't feel rushed at all on a busy Saturday night. Food came out very quickly. Beautiful presentation and delicious.
Hidden gem amongst fabulous restaurants downtown. What a great find. Everything was wonderful. Will definitely return. Would have loved to had time to hang out at the bar.
Great experience for the 1st time eating at Muse. Would definitely do again. Awesome food, great staff and a wonderful setting.
What a fun restaurant! Great for a group (which we were) or a date. Lovely old house turned into a dining establishment with great nooks and crannies for tables, including a lovely balcony overlooking Society Street. The Meze Platter is a good way to start and the Grilled Calamari is excellent as well. We were a party of 9 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food, from the salads to the pasta to the fish entrees. We tried four of the desserts - lemon tart, tiramisu, Boca Negra, and the cheesecake and everyone had a favorite - a great way to get your friends and family arguing ...
Our server Don was excellent. His knowledge of the wines and the menu helped steer us in the right direction at every turn.
Great food and service
Very quaint restaurant. The meal was delicious, though pricey for the quantity. Was placed in a room with a large group so that ruined the experience.
The group really enjoyed the food and recommendations by the staff!
This restaurant is located in a charming historic home. The service was impeccable and the food was equally good. We had a relaxing, quiet evening and will definitely go back. For us, this is the best dining experience we have had in Charleston.
Such a fabulous dining experince. The restaurant is in an old home and was decorated very quaintly! My family was in town for the weekend and this was the favorite meal of the weekend. From the cheese tray to the wine to the entrees... it was all amazing. Portions were a good size and everyone felt full but not stuffed to the brim- always a plus for me!
