Exceptional service from Farra(sp?). The sea bass on risotto was done perfectly, as was the sushi roll special. Both were spectacular, as always.

The restaurant is usually a tad noisier than I like, but not intolerable. Most of the noise emanates from the bar area.

I highly recommend the tempura ice cream and café Americano for dessert.

Went here on a first date and it was so good we came back 15 months later and it was even better. Such good food, the best service I’ve ever had in Dallas, and the most kind owner I’ve ever met! Thank you Musume!

Tre Chic! So welcoming and inviting; an environment elevating you to another place, away from the city, where your tastebuds take flight. Open yourself to the beautiful tastes presented on the menu. Fabulous service, ambiance is abundant and food is one of a kind.

This was hands down one of the best meals we have ever had. We were here celebrating a 40th birthday, and our waiter, Alec, thought of every detail. We ordered lobsters fried rice, wagyu beef, dim sum, lobster gyoza, Friday night sushi rolls, spicy edemame and drinks upon drinks!

The owner came over and had great conversation with us, and made us feel like old friends.

Akai was amazing. If you know you know. If you don’t, you should!

A vibrant culinary experience. High fashion manager Khalil sets the stage with an enthusiastic beautiful friendly staff. Shashimi is thick fresh cold and generous. Chef specials are a don't miss addition. For the well dressed guests who ask and make cut, music and dancing at the secret speakeasy Manhattan style.
Best experience and sushi in Dallas.

Be sure to look at your bill carefully! Musume is definitely a scene, and good for those who want that. The place has energy, bordering on obnoxious. We went for Restaurant Week and had lovely food-salmon and calamari starters, watermelon salad, popcorn shrimp (a bonus), and sushi and halibut. The halibut was slightly over cooked, but still tasty. The sushi entree was very good and creative, with a variety of pieces to choose from. The prix fixe meal was a great value. Like other restaurants of this sort, the staff does not hesitate to keep filling your wine glass. We ended up corking the remainder of our wine because it was a school night, and we had no intention of drinking the entire bottle, which we might have done had we not stopped the staff from giving us more. The biggest objection of the evening came with the bill. We are generous tippers, but we perhaps had not seen any fine print that let us know the gratuity would be included on our bill at 22%. We accepted the amount because we felt our servers had worked hard and were very nice. However, we felt that the servers should not be put in a position to have to explain management policies, nor should a guest have to question this policy in order for it to be changed. As a result, we do not intend to go back. We encourage other guests to check their bill before adding another tip, as you may be tipping twice.

This was my first time dining-in at Musume, and I had a wonderful experience. Our server Amanda was attentive and able to recommend several dishes to try based on our preferences. There is an excellent array of choices, and the sushi was beautifully prepared. Definitely try the yellowtail sashimi with serrano peppers!

Our server was outstanding, knowledgeable and well versed on menu. We followed her lead on suggestions. Black cod, crispy tofu and lambpops were all excellent! Miami roll very light and fresh, Friday night roll also delicious
Be prepared for a very noisy and lively experience..........extremely noisy on a Saturday night, tons of birthday revelers which was fun and festive. Added treat of live Chinese dragons who make occasional special appearances. Super fun LOUD evening!!!

First time visit during restaurant week and we will most certainly return. The food was outstanding , the wait staff was attentive and the owner visited ours (and everyone’s) table and helped us select sake. They have an extensive list. We tried the Dassi #45 and it was amazing.
Great location in the Arts district and nice ambiance inside.

Definitely worth the dining experience!

The lamb lollipops were good but my lobster fried rice was incredibly underwhelming and drenched in a very spicy sauce that overwhelmed the dish. The fried lobster was soggy as if it had been sitting out all day. The bouncers at the speak easy made it clear that they we weren’t wanted. Bar tenders and hostess pointed us to certain seats only for the bouncers to make us move multiple times. It was not worth the money.
