We have eaten in most of the restaurants in Charleston and wanted something different and fun. The Muse hit the spot. We tried many specials that were unusual but wonderful. The peach tomato soup hit the spot for a summer dinner. The service was fabulous and our waiter suggested perfect wines with our meals. The atmosphere was cozy and it... More

I don't like seafood so this place seemed to have a decent choice of non-seafood meals. We arrived a few minutes early on what was apparently a slow night. We were shown to a table on the upper floor in a room by ourselves. First one person came to the table and then a different person - we were never... More

Muse was very convenient to my hotel so this is how we picked this restaurant for dinner. We were very happy with the service-our waiter was fantastic. The food was delicious... especially the bruchetta, which was a special that night. The steak was cooked to perfection and the wine list was very nice.

Got to our hotel late and Muse was across the street. The bar was great and the food was over the top. The Calamari is the best I have had and the Bouillabaisse was fabulous! Loaded with great fresh seafood that was perfectly cooked. Highly recommend this for a must stop in Charleston.

Muse is charming and lovely. The staff was great and my dinner was delicious, along with the wine. Muse will now be a must for me on my visits to Charleston, SC. The ambience is excellent.

Muse is a restaurant in a very old home. Romantic, not antiseptic; more like a European feel. The tables are a little small, but they are creative at making room - even when we split a salad. The wine list was good as well. Service was on point - not fussy or pushy. We didn't feel rushed. The food was... More

The food at Muse was fabulous! Tonight, the service was not so good: they were SLAMMED! The two starters we ordered were great: the heirloom tomatoes with pickled shrimp were WONDERFUL, as was the Marguez sausage!! YUMMO! For our entrees, D ordered the deboned sea bass, and I ordered the bouillabaisse. They were both delightful, especially paired with the recommended... More

We were a disappointed in our meal here. Found the service, setting and meal not up to par as compared to our other experiences in Charleston. The setting was a bit dingy to our taste. The food was just ok.

Like another reviewer, we were referred by Marriott's Kevin on first night in town. We had a play to make & the hostess & server accommodated us & we got to the theater (walking) w/time to spare. Per Kevin's request, we were seated in a top-floor room in this charming, old home, which may originally have been an upstairs study,... More
