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

We loved this restaurant. we were referred there by Kevin at Courtyard Marriot, and would never had heard of it without his direction. It is located on a quiet street between Meeting and King in an old Charleston style home. The food and service were amazing and the small rooms of the hold home made the experience that much more...

I booked a table a week in advance as it is always booked. My husband and i enjoyed our time, the food was great and the atmosphere was lovely. The restaurant is in a small old house and it has great character. The wine list was fantastic and our server was attentive without bothering us as we were here for... More

An eclectic menu with a very good wine list. The building itself is a small old Charleston home and had a nice wine bar. 8 of us had dinner and we all enjoyed it...

I wanted to send over a review on how my experience was at this restaurant. Let me start out with saying that I have been in the restaurant business for over ten years bar tended, served and managed so I am not some customer that doesn't understand the jobs. We made reservations on open table and requested an outside table.... More

Good service, good friends, good apps —all add up to fun at the Muse. There were four of us in our party and only one had a complete dinner; the rest of us munched on some good appetizers and had a few glasses of wine. The appetizers were good and ample servings for sharing, and the service was friendly and... More
