Excellent dinner in a quiet, unique place

Restaurant is in an old house typical of this city, with tables scattered in various rooms. Service and food quality were excellent. Portion size a bit on the small side.

I happened into this little gem on a business trip and fell in love! It was a Monday which is their Service Industry night, so the bar was busy with local waiters talking to the chef to see what he wanted to cook, talking about the food, and just having a good time drinking. The group was loud and fun... More

An evening out with my hubby for my birthday, excellent service, food was wonderful and tastefully served, and server very personable and fun. Even put a lit candle on top of my cheesecake dessert. This restaurant is out of the way but well worth the hunt. Reservations advised as there is limited seating.

Loved this eclectic restaurant / wine bar! Staff and crowd were very friendly, food and wine were excellent and the restaurant was set in a very stylishly decorated old home right behind the Renaissance Hotel. Truly a gem!

My meal was great, and the atmosphere is great. I did feel like I was paying a very premium price for a pretty small portion, but the quality was high, so I wouldn't be opposed to going back.

Right across the street from the Renaissance in a little old home. Tables are tight so not a lot of privacy, but we got lucky next to a really nice local couple and joked with them all night. Had a the daily catch which was a locally caught trigger fish, not something you find often and it was amazing. Very... More

We went to Muse because it was close to our lodging and menu looked interesting for our splurge dinner in Charleston with adult children. Turned out to be our best meal of the trip. Very extensive wine list... pages and pages. Shared three items from starters and all were excellent - tuna tartare, calamari (not fried) and a panzanella tomato... More

Service was very good - A++ Food - my friend had bouillabaisse - and said it was delicious. I had the gnocchi - it wasn't very good. It was very chewy and I paid $18 for about a 1/4 cup. Way too overpriced for my taste for the size portion you get. Nice setting/restaurant though. I still won't be going... More

A former dental office, the place is very small but has a lot to offer. Drew, our bartender, is a class act and very enjoyable to talk to and be served by. Bar and dining areas are small, but the food & beverage is absolutely excellent. A lot of locals make this place a stop on their way home and... More

Delicious fresh food prepared in with recipes from throughout Europe and the mid-East. Eclectic and fresh. Great fish, salads, pastas and more. Whether you are looking for an appetizer, an entree, a dessert or the whole shebang, this place is for you. Love the outside seating as well. Service is great and I never feel hurried. Enjoy drinks at the... More
