Small Plates and Live Music

Located in my favorite part of New Orleans, Three Muses delivers a great tasting experience. Best for small groups (4) so you can share lots of tastes. Live music but still conversation is possible. The cocktail list has some interesting variations on the classics.

My husband and I visited Three Muses without reservations on a Saturday evening. The hostess - a total gem - told us we could potentially wait at least two hours but would squeeze us in if an existing reservation was ten minutes late. Lucky us: we had an amazing cocktail and got a table within 10 minutes. The bartenders are... More

Great venue, amazing band and super tasty food. One of the best spots on Frenchmen at. Only downfall was the hostess who was very rude. Other staff were great! Still well worth a visit.

Stumbled upon Three Muses quite randomly - it started raining as we were walking down Frenchman Street and it was the place we happened to be standing in front of at the time. After seeing a good Zagat rating and how busy it was, we were pleasantly surprised when we were seated inside. Good jazz performance at the front of... More

This is an absolute must in New Orleans. The music, the food, the staff and the general feel is stunning.

Three Muses is tiny, so reservations are a must. But, the food is delicious and the live music is a treat. We each ordered two plates and ordered seconds on two of them. That was perfect for dinner. We were there with three teenagers, and even the pickiest among them enjoyed everything we ate.

this place had great food.. and a really nice ambience. The casual setting was welcoming, and our waiter was nice and knew the menu well. The prices were fair on the items we choose but seemed steep for the meager portions we saw on neighboring tables. Don't come too hungry.. Because you'll need to order many dishes, most of which...

Everything on the menu is small plates and delicious so order several plates if you're really hungry. The unique and amazing cocktails are handcrafted by the nicest bartenders. They have great live music in this very busy and bustling restaurant. Go early to get a table or make a reservation. Make sure to get the brownie with housemade ice cream... More

This place was suggested to me by a friend and it lived up to his hype. It was a good place to enjoy dinner and be able to sit with my teenage daughter while listening to a jazz band. It is tapas style and reasonably priced. We loved the mac and cheese and the French fries. The shrimp tempura was... More
