Quick Stop for a Bite

We stopped at Muse during our bus ride to Denali. Muse was a good little restaurant for a quick bite. Good food!

Worked up our appetite enjoying the museum all afternoon and then stopped in at Muse for an early dinner and some wine. Excellent food and atmosphere to relax in.

The Muse was inside the Anchorage Museum. We had lunch there. The server was friendly, The food was served hot and delicious,and the price was reasonable. We found it to be better than the downtown restaurants we've eaten at for 2/3 less .We would recommend to friends. They serve lunch till 4 PM, and do not serve dinner. A late... More

This little cafe is located in the Anchorage Museum. It is bright and airy and a very busy place. We were half expecting slow service but - a nice surprise - it was efficient and very good food presented nicely. We had enough time afterward to walk around the garden of the museum and cafe. Would highly recommend!

I went to Muse for a banquet. The space was crowded but the food was very good. I presume that the meals are prepared in similar quality.

High priced. Modern decor - with red and white color scheme. Pretty. Good food, however, the waitstaff could be more attentive.

We enjoyed our meal at MUSE. The service was a bit chaotic and at least one member of staff probably shouldn't be in the hospitality business. However once we got through that we thoroughly appreciated the imaginative cooking. The desserts are particularly good but avoid the overpriced wine pairings. A great way to finish off a visit to this excellent... More

Located on the ground floor of the must see Anchorage Museum, this is the perfect place for lunch or dinner before or after your visit. Really tasty, surprisingly sophisticated food in a rather elegant dining room. Excellent service, not unreasonable prices, given the quality of the food and the ambience. The fish chowder was the best I have ever had.... More

This is one of my favorite places to take clients and meet with friends for downtown Anchorage lunch. Muse has a very good lunch menu and impressive wine list. The dinner menu is equally pleasing with a variety of traditional and more inventive items. For lunch, the Citrus Soy Glazed Salmon is always good, as is the Chipotle Grilled Shrimp... More
