Muze Ratings and Reviews
Excellent views of the Jefferson Memorial and the Potomac River. Beautiful dining room with touches of modern Asian and European decor. The ambiance was quiet enough to have a good conversation. With the little nooks created near each window, we seemed to be secluded and private and I appreciated the ability to talk without being interrupted by other conversations or activity. As the evening turned to night, the car lights passing by added to the beauty of the place. We didn't have to compete with the noise of the cars; it was so quiet and peaceful.
The dishes were presented well--as colorful and laid meticulously on each plate. In terms of flavor and taste, my house salad had the surprising addition of light wonton chips that added a crispy quality to the greens. The main course--a chicken and eggplant curry dish--had a light spicy, hot taste that didn't overpower the basmati rice. The sorbet was beautiful and tasteful with the addition of a mint to the lemon.
Superb service overall. The wait help and server were polite as well as suggestive. Although many couldn't speak English well, they patiently responded to our requests to repeat what had been said and answer our questions. Especially wonderful was the entry to the restaurant. The young professional who greeted us was very warm and full of the aloha spirit. I felt like I was the most important person being seated and found her grace a real touch of class.
Overall, the restaurant was a cut above the many eateries in a city of eateries. The beautiful decor and style of the restaurant truly invited my party in to dine. I never felt rushed or pushed. There was such a easiness and style to both the atmosphere and the service. The food was wonderful, both in terms of look and taste. I would definitely bring a party of friends here to dine when I return back to town.
good food and consistently excellent, attentive service. A great spot for a sit down meal where there are few good options in this part of the city - not too far from museums and monuments. i would definitely recommend Muze for a business lunch, or just a good, classy meal in the city.
We had a great experience, everyone was so friendly and made you feel welcome. I was a little worried reading some of the reviews about the pricing, but it seemed normal to me for the d.c. area. The food is not over priced in my opinion, because you are also paying for the ambience and customer service. I did not like the lobster sandwich but everything else was amazing!
Nice ambiance and friendly service but food is meh.
I have lunched at the Muze about 5-6x now. It is the only "nice" restaurant in the neighborhood where I work. So I take friends there for special occasions.
I always ask for a quiet table with a view. This last time was one of two times both requests were honored. I am grateful. Usually they stick me at a tiny table in a corner with no view. This time they sat the 2 of us at a decent sized table for 4, with a view of the waterfront. I wonder if they read my review from last week complaining about the seating.
Whatever the reason, I guess it's good to keep asking for what you want. Sometimes they will honor your request.
My friend ordered the steak salad and liked it. I got the beef "saltado" which was really an Asian noodle dish with thick wheat noodles and marinated beef strips. It wasn't great but it was much better than the terrible hamburger I had the previous week. Whatever you do don't order the hamburger. It has a very strange dry mealy texture and is devoid of any flavor. You are paying for the service and ambiance here; don't expect delicious food.
Service was friendly and attentive as usual. I really like that the waiter leaves the water bottle at your table so you can serve yourself instead of having to flag down waiter each time for refills. This was the best dining experience at Muze so far.
NICE PLACE - BAD FOOD.
I took a friend to Muse for a birthday lunch. I asked for a quiet table with a view (as I always do), and the hostess showed us the same table in the corner I have been seated in before. It was relatively quiet but there was a table of 3 people seated within arm's reach of us. There were other tables that were surrounded by empty tables so not sure what the hostess was thinking in seating us here. Also, there was no view.
My friend ordered the Caesar salad with shrimp which she enjoyed. I got the burger and fries which was interesting in that while the fries were fine, the burger was one of the worst, with a weird mealy texture and zero taste. How can they screw up a hamburger?! This experience is consistent with my past dining experiences at the Muse, which is that you are paying extra for the ambiance, not the food which is consistently disappointing.
Only place around to avoid food courts or pizza joints and have a quiet conversation. Food is good but nothing really outstanding or special. Prices are high--Location is convenient and it is a decent business setting. Wait staff are attentive but also give you your space which is good.
The alcoholic drink I ordered was awful and had to be sent back. The food was okay but over priced. The dessert was phenomenal. The service was interesting. It was scarce for the most part but when it did come around it was a rotation of different people vice the individual who said they would be taking care of you. Odd at best.
