Great small plates, average music

Loved the food - creative small plates for sharing. Red snapper ceviche, tofu, kimchee rice bowl, fish tacos, mac & cheese. However, we also went to Three Muses for the live music and the performer during our meal wasn't very good and kept making aggressive pitches for tips. Still a great meal... read more

My first time to NOLA and the Three Muses was a highlight. Met an old friend there and loved every minute. Great service, great drinks, AMAZING small plates and fantastic bands! Loved the Fish Tacos and Bacon Wrapped Blue Cheese Stuffed dates as well as an amazing beet salad! WARNING: Book far in advance and be on time for your... More

We were warned by friends that while the Three Muses used to be a great place to be, they have recently gotten far too full of themselves. My husband and I had never been and we were planning to spend the evening in the Marigny so we decided to see for ourselves. Should have taken their advice. We arrived fairly... More

Food was fantastic - seared sea scallops, fish tacos and blue cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon. Music by The Peacemakers made for a wonderful time. Definitely looking forward to going back again.

This is New Orleans like it should be .... Good wine and great food (Tapas style) to share combined with cool jazz music for normal prices.

I walked up to the hostess to see if there was availability. There was not but she put me on the wait list. I was texted about an hour later that I could be fit in. I walled back over and was seated in front of the live band. I had the meat/cheese plate and the steak with crab cake.... More

It took us three attempts to get a table in TM. And it was well worth the trouble, the place is small but cozy and stylish in the best Nola way. Live music complements the whole impression. We ordered great red snapper ceviche special and steak/crabcake combination. Both delicious with the latter being a European size, leaving room for one... More

We went on a Friday night and although we were really late for our reservations, we still got a lovely little table right next to the window. The 4-piece band that night was excellent, the tapas-style dishes were amazing (I'd go back just for the Fluffernutter pie dessert) and the overall atmosphere was great! I came with a couple girlfriends... More

If you're in NOLA you HAVE to go to the Three Muses. I just stumbled upon it one evening while roaming Frenchman Street in search of some great Jazz. The live music here is some of the best you will find anywhere in NOLA. The food was hands down some of the best I've ever eaten. The service was lovely... More

We came here on a Saturday night. The hostess was gracious and informed us of the wait time...She was dead on about the timing, less than 15 minutes. We waited in the bar and had excellent drinks. When shown to our table our waiter was helpful and courteous. He offered suggestions that really were the way to go. The live... More
