We had a wonderful dinner last night at Muse in Charleston. Not too busy on a Sunday evening. We had a lovely table downstairs and Donald, our server was terrific. He was very knowledgeable about the wines as well as the menu items we asked about. I started with the Baby Arugala Salad and my husband had the Autumn Salad... More

Found this restaurant on-line and thought we would try it because of the outside patio. Unfortunately, it was raining, but we were seated on second floor near a grand piano. That room is on the small side, tables are very close to each other, but there wasn't very many people in that room--didn't have to scream at each other. Very... More

This was our third visit to Muse over the last 4 to 5 years. True, it is a little funky and lots of tourists don't know about it. But it is worth the experience! We started sharing a salad, then an appetizer. My wife had the homemade pasta Bolognese, and I had the whole, boned trout special. Our courses were... More

Good food, great wine, but small and crowded. The owner sits in the bar, and can be prickly. Also, they allow smoking on the patio where you're eating/drinking.

We had an amazing meal here - shrimp and pasta par excellence. The wine we chose to accompany this was superb as wel. The location and surroundings are amazing as it feels like you are in someone's house sitting at a table. Our room had one other table occupied and the atmosphere was so pleasant that we ended up chatting... More

Discovered this by chance as we were going to the theatre next door... fabulous food and service, and pretty good value too. They have a nice outdoor eating space as well as the indoor restaurant. Definitely worth a look if you're in the area.

The concierge at our hotel was surprised when we asked her to make reservations at Muse. We'd done a bit of research but evidently most tourists don't know it exists. Located in an old Charleston home in the Historic District, just off Meeting Street, Muse is cozy, warm and inviting. The bar was packed with young people, straight from work,... More

We were there for a private party on the second floor. Space was a bit tight for a group of our size. Food was presented well and courses were evenly spaced from a time perspective. Grouper was much better than expected but the scallops were a bit small.

The location offered an Interesting setting, an old house with each room a different dining room. the menu was fresh featuring many local seafood options. It was all that we had hoped for. Oh, and if you're in the mood, very romantic.
