What a brunch treat!
Order the omelet of the day! Mine was delicious cheddar,bacon, tomato and just perfect. My husband had the French toast and my son had the eggs Benedict. A win on all three.
Can't wait to try dinner there.

It was very good. I had the scallops , my husband the hamburger & our friend the tuna appetizer. Everyone cleaned their plates. The waitstaff was great and attentive . All in all we had a lovely evening and would go back.

The biggest drawback is the sag harbor parking. We were fortunate to get a space. The restaurant has a couple of reserved spaces but they go quickly.

Good food, good ambiance, but as with everything in the Hamptons these days incredibly overpriced. $52 for a steak or lobster risotto is kind of obscene.

It wasn't that crowded on this Sunday evening so we were able to get outdoor seating. I chose this place for the gluten free options so that worked out for me. Hubby ordered the mussels as our app and it was delicious; light but full of flavor. The artichoke was a nice touch. I ordered the vegetarian and that was fine. My husband ordered the sea bass and we both swear it tasted more like swordfish. I'm used to more buttery tasting sea bass but this sea bass was thick, meaty and did have a lot of flavor. We weren't crazy about the fish but we enjoyed the atmosphere, and our waiter was attentive and sweet.

Had anniversary early dinner. food was great. Sweet potato apple soup was yummy. Their rum punch was great (not strong....).
food was great, not cheap, but pretty good.
Ambiance is cool and it looks like one of the better restaurants at Sag Harbor.

We were charmed by the atmosphere and character of the restaurant, very different from the gayer and more flamboyant nature of its summertime scene. The list and descriptions of drinks, too, was welcoming and very provocative. Then we tasted it all! The drinks were very tasty--a bit too tasty! Very, very strong. I couldn't eat more than a bite or two of the succulent hanger steak, as it was so spicy it nearly burned the roof of my mouth off. And my husband, whose love of French-fries is legendary, couldn't eat more than a few. Perhaps if we'd been warned, we'd have ordered different foods.

we dined at muse in the harbor for lunch. we were met by a very pleasant, friendly and accommodating hostess who allowed us to sit where we preferred. our waitress was pleasant and did not rush us at all. the salad, with a tuna add-on, was very tasty and the tuna was a nice size piece and was cooked perfectly! hubby had the beet salad with a chicken add-on, which was also a nice dish, except he was anticipating cooked beets (his preference) rather than the shaved beets. the key lime cheesecake was excellent - a unique and delicious spin on regular cheesecake as it was done in layers !! will be back! thank you!

Lovely restaurant! The service and food was excellent. We ordered off the fixed price menu which was a great value. The meatball appetizer was delicious and the salmon was very good. My dessert of rice pudding, berries and cream was exceptional! We'll definitely be back!

While the majority of the food was enjoyable, the tuna entree used a poor quality fish. It was supposed to be sashmi style, recommended rare. It came out overcooked and loaded with bloody sinew - not an enjoyable cut of fish, and not worth $44. It was brought to the chef who said that it was no big deal to eat.

The indoor /outdoor aspect is appealing and the near "waterview" of the fish tank is a lovely touch.
Our waitress was a little flippant but efficient.
It was a lovely pre-theatre dining.

We asked for a table outside and were refused even though the terrace was pretty empty until we left. Food isn't very good and prices are high. There are much better restaurants, but this is one of few that takes reservations. Paella is not good.

Good food, pretty decor, nice if somewhat unprofessional help. The menu is unusual, and my kids had trouble picking menu items, but the food is yummy if overpriced for what it is. We thought this was a more casual burger place with a greek flair, but it is actually a fine dining experience with $40 entrees just all the other places in the Hamptons. The location is great, right in the town of Sag Harbor and with views of the water. Our waitress was friendly, but kept touching my husband's shoulders when talking to my him. My kids got a kick out of me being jealous, and we had a good laugh about it, wondering of it would have bothered me if she were a he and not so pretty! Lastly, they seem to honor reservations here, which is hard to find in the Hamptons in August.

The building which is now inhabited by Muse has been so many restaurants over the years. This new iteration, Muse, is nicely decorated. We were warmly greeted, and seated at a very nice table. Waiter was efficient, but the food was just so-so. My scallops were undercooked and sitting in a pea mash that congealed as the meal progressed. But my husband's tuna, which he ordered black and blue, was just not good at all. He could barely eat it as it was such a bad piece of fish to begin with, and became a pile of mush on his plate. We had high hopes this go, but may not be eating there again this season. Will try again next summer.

The restaurant is located very closed to the marinas and in walking distance. Decorated nicely. However, the service and attention to detail was below our expectations. The food was ok. Maybe they just had an off night, but overall I gave them 3 stars.
