Charming building

We enjoyed a very nice dinner during Restaurant Week. Early dinner and very private on the 2nd floor. This restaurant is not good for handicapped folks. The rest room is on the 2nd floor and you need to use the stairs. Charming.

We had a wonderful dinner in this great old historic building. The food was tasty and the service was very friendly and attentive. This is a very comfortable Mediterranean restaurant with generous portions.

We spent 2 nights in Charleston and were so excited to try some of their new places to eat! The 1st night we went to Muse. Our service was excellent, nice cocktails/wine; after our waitress told us the specials of the night we went into reading the menu. We both selected from the regular menu. We shared an appetizer of... More

Very quaint, in an old house, exquisite food, bar with substance, step back into time. Highly recommend this restaurant for a group of six, maybe eight.

Fruit flys, black specks in drinks, a chipped glass and a crust of bread found under a dinner plate. The window I faced had hand prints all over it. The carpet on the stairs looked as if it was soaked with old food. I awarded Muse 2 stars because the food was satisfactory. If you are visiting Charleston please avoid... More

Muse has all the makings for an intimate experience with someone special. Starting with the personal care from the staff and ending with live music in the bar this NYE dinner was perfection. After making a reservation on Opentable and then modifying it 4 times I expected the hosts to be already exasperated with us upon arrival. However they were... More

firstly, there was one waiter responsible for our table and 3 others in the area, plus a party upstairs and on in the next room! so the service was awful, as it was way too much for 1 person. The food was awful. And the place itself was completely falling apart - - and not in a quaint, antique-y kind... More

This place is across from The Renaissance Hotel, located in a small old house. The bar is in the front room and there is a small covered patio just before you walk into the bar. The dining room is adjacent to the bar, with about 8 tables, very cozy. We were the only ones there when we arrived. I ordered... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant for its amazing food, great service and its location. Its right by King st which means its right by the shopping area. All the pastas and desserts are made in house! I ordered the fettuccine and loved it after the first bite!! I ate everything off of my plate. It has a separate bar... More
