The sun was shining and the deck was almost empty. Quiet and peaceful dinner.

The restaurant was quiet and warm and cozy and festive with Christmas decorations. We came there to have dinner and watch the fireworks and ended up watching fireworks right from the window where we ate which was perfect. The cream Brulé was out of this world 😋

Our first experience was a good one, after museum hours on Friday evening. High-quality menu, professional service, and live music made for a nice date. All Muse needs now is patrons! We had the place almost all to ourselves. If word gets out, this could be a great downtown restaurant.

We enjoyed a visit to the museum and decided to dine in the Muse while there. The food was outstanding and the lunch time atmosphere on a Saturday was great for bringing school age kids to. Very comfortable chairs as well!

I got the goat cheese pasta which had goat cheese in the sauce and a whole scoop of goat cheese in top. That's way too much goat cheese! Plus the flavor was bland. Not worth the money I spent on it

The food was creative and delicious. We were there on a Sunday and it was fairly empty, but the waitress was not very attentive and we had to wait 10 minutes or more just to get the menu. The food came quickly and as I said it was excellent. Maybe our waitress was just having an off day.

There's only one vegetarian option, and it's a cold, limp hummus sandwich. They didn't even toast the bread. Very disappointing. My appetizer of flatbread with apricot jam was delicious, however.

The food at Muse used to be excellent, but our last visit was quite disappointing. The menu has lost much of its creativity. It's just not worth the price. We like spicy food but the creole seafood linguine was gloppy and any flavor it might have had was overwhelmed by the heat. Our other menu choices were fine but not special. Surprisingly, there was only one waiter for the entire restaurant, although under the circumstances he did a good job.

Consistently, a solid option in Anchorage for dining out. Service is among the very best! Always a pleasure to dine here especially when you precede or follow it with a visit to the Anchorage Museum. Would definitely dine here again and suggest to others to do likewise.

The food was excellent! I order for pick up all the time and thought it would be a great place to grab lunch over the weekend. As for the dine in service? It could use some improvement. The restaurant was pretty open having only 4 tables taken and maybe 2-3 servers. None of the tables were sat at the same time so time management for order taking and drink refills needs to be worked on. Never the less both servers who waited on our table were kind and open to given advise and answered questions professionally and truthfully. I will be returning, soon.

Our Friday evening dining experience was great- except we were disappointed with our main dishes. House salad and the shrimp appetizer were great. Wine choices were very good. The chicken pot pie main dish "with puff pastry" had more spices (thyme?) in it than we liked, and the puff pastry was just a few little bitty discs of pastry decorating the top. The smoked chicken broccoli pasta with a goat cheese sauce didn't have broccoli in it and instead of the shaved parmesan cheese topping, there was a dollop of more goat cheese. That was a lot of goat cheese. I was looking forward to the broccoli. :-( Wait staff were friendly and helpful. We probably won't go back, just because there's a great steakhouse close by. Too bad Muse wasn't more impressive. It has such potential!

Server was behind when taking our order. Food was cool by the time it arrived at table. Still it was good tasting and we would go back.

Service was a little slow at the beginning due to being short on waiters but our service was still good. Food was great. Our waiter even took the time to take our picture :)
