Our server Alex couldn’t have been more charming or professional. He steered us toward delicious small plates since we were just having a quick nosh before a play. The ribs were decadently toothsome and the mushrooms irresistibly yummy. Loved the ambiance and proximity to the Wyley but didn’t love the noise level - hard to hear each other talk!

Went to Musume before the symphony, and reserved a seat in the sushi bar area. The restaurant was everything you imagined it to be: great service, great drinks, and the best sushi that we've ever had. I order their take on an old fashion, which I would highly recommend if you're into whisky/bourbon drinks. Our favorite sushi we ordered was the Roller Coaster. Next time, I will be reserving a spot in the main dining area as the sushi bar standard seating was not as comfortable for talking.

Great food! Let the chef send out some of his favorites, and they were all amazing! Best lamb ever! It's location is perfect for dinner before a show at Winspear Opera House or Symphony! Only complaint is that it is very loud, and hard to hear the conversation.

Sat at sushi bar. Spicy edamame was very good. Stir it first to get edamame well covered. Great fresh sushi. Rolls great too.
Just know that if you go there between 6:00 and 7:30 when there is an event across the street that the service will slow down. Will go back.

Oh man, where to begin... I guess I'll preface this with the fact that most of the food did taste good. But the service... unbelievably bad. Wait staff were literally running around like they were in front of a firing squad. We went for Restaurant Week so maybe that was the issue. We were sat in the darkest corner table in the restaurant. Still water (Fiji) is $9. For appetizer, my friend and I got the serrano yellowtail which was delicious and I would recommend it. My other friend ordered the shiitake gyoza, which came as three, small deep fried pieces. We also ordered an additional appetizer (Five Spice Duck Confit - which was as dry as the Sahara desert, and should have been served with silverware because the forbidden rice underneath was saturated in a compote and wouldn't hold together), and a rainbow roll to supplement dinner. The rainbow roll came out before anything else, including our cocktails and apps. When our entrees were finally served, mine was delivered a good 5 minutes before everyone else's and I had to ask two servers to provide me silverware (I'm not going to attempt to eat mashed yam with chopsticks), and the steak was freezing cold, so it was evident it had been sitting there awhile. Then we had a waitress drop off an order of asparagus (we didn't order it), and then later in the evening, drop off two cocktails we didn't order. Dessert was fine. Then it comes time to pay... the bulk of the bill was paid on card, and we said, the rest would be in cash. None of the cash was returned, we had to ask for it back. I wouldn't stiff horrible waitstaff but we certainly were not going to tip over the included 20% for service this atrocious. I wouldn't go back.

Great date spot or place to go before a theatre show given that it is next door to both theaters. We ordered 6 dishes and everything was phenomenal. A little on the pricey side, but worth it. The appetizers are spicier than expected, but still enjoyable. Food came out quickly but the wait service was a little slow so definitely allow some time if you are going to see a show. Would definitely recommend

Went for DFW restaurant week: the food was pretty good. Our server was wonderful; however, for the price and amount of food, it was definitely lacking. The steak was average, the potatoes, were not very good, the desserts were lacking creativity.

A fine dining restaurant that is vegetarian friendly, has interesting food, good service and ambience. I always indicate that I am a vegetarian when I make my reservations on Open table. The host acknowledged this and so did the server. The server was friendly, attentive and made some good recommendations. The menu had a lot of choices for vegans and vegetarians. We ended up ordering several small plates All the dishes I picked were excellent. Shitake Gyoza, Wok Charred Okra and the Superfly Vegan roll. What I liked was the flavor and spice of the dishes I had ordered. The presentation was good. The dessert choices were okay - we had at Matcha Napolean. There are many more vegetarian dishes I want to try. My meat- eating family also enjoyed their dishes - but I was too busy relishing my meal to remember what they ordered.

This was honestly one of the best meals I’ve ever had. I ordered from the menu, no sushi this time. Lamb lollipops and anything served over the risotto, I would recommend. Also save room for the Miso Chocolate Mousse Cake! This cake is awesome!

Beautiful venue with interesting menu options. Go for the Thai basil vinaigrette dipping sauce - worth it! The Hot Mess Roll had a lot going on and while it was decent I wouldn’t order it again. Morgan Roll was the best. Seating was comfortable enough and it was nearly at capacity for lunch time but not too noisy so still possible to talk business. Clean restrooms and plenty of seating while you wait on your party to arrive. Overall nice experience.

We came for a birthday and it was great! I have a favorite Japanese restaurant in Dallas, but Musume may have taken that title. Not only was the restaurant beautiful, but the food was amazing!! We had many different things on the menu and it was ALL delicious. The service was awesome, our server(s) didn’t rush our long dinner, were super nice, and were so knowledgeable about everything on the menu.
