This is a really nice restaurant with music, delicious food and the offer at the bar is interesting. We were waiting for a table, the list was huge, so after 30 mins we decided to stay at the bar, even without a table, it was totally worth. They have an interesting offer of music, occasionally also played live music. Highly... More

We walked to the 3 Muses from our hotel and arrived around 9 PM. This is small, intimate venue so expect a potential wait. At this time it was crowded, but only about a 10 minute wait until we were seated. If you arrive earlier during peak periods, there are several nearby bars (with no cover charge) to get a... More

We experienced great service, FANTASTIC food in a killer environment which provided excellent live music! We shared a bottle of cab, Feta Fries, each ordered the Filet & Crab, and Nutella ice cream. There was a 45 min wait...that's a great indicator of a great restaurant. I didn't notice many children in the restaurant or the area, however, the restaurant... More

This place is worth waiting to get a seat in. The had a very good Jazz Band, the Royal Roses that night, who had also played in Conservation Hall, and recorded there. The small plates menu is just stunning. We had Lobster Egg Rolls, Crawfish Creole Pasta, a Roasted Beet Bruchette with goat cheese and balsamic reduction (OMG, the combination... More

Ate dinner here with my college age son on a Friday night. We arrived around 7 pm and were seated immediately. The music was great - traditional jazz. I was not that hungry and had the salmon sushi as my entree - very good. My son had the steak and crab meat. He felt it was probably the best thing... More

A MUST!!! Their tappas are mazing and our favorite is the steak and cake! Their live music makes this small venue packed so get their early or be prepared to wait for a while. But SOOOOO worth the wait. If you are lucky enough you will be able to see Sophie Lee perform or in the crowd. Such a great... More

Three Muses is my favorite eatery on Frenchmen. Food is better than any other restaurant on the strip, in my opinion, and the atmosphere and music make it a good, solid choice. Currently open for brunch on Sunday, too, and it's not crowded...a great time to check it out if you don't want to do the nighttime scene.

We recently ate here while visiting New Orleans on holiday and were really impressed It is fantastic food severed in a tapas style. Which is the best way to order, chose 2/3 things each and share. You can chose small or large plates of things which is normally 3 or 4 of the item. The place is small and gets... More

This place is an excellent choice for food and music in New Orleans. They have brought together the holy trinity of food, music, and cocktails. Only in NOLA could this trifecta be brought to such a high level. I felt like it was packed with both tourists and locals. The venue is busy, so expect a wait. You can go... More
