A very good choice

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... read more

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

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

I didn't expect a museum restaurant to be this good. The salmon is really tasty. The side salad is fresh. And I do like their coffee.

Be aware that this restaurant has changed management last year! All reviews before 4/2014 are no longer valid. The food is pretty good, service depends on the season and how full they are. Plan to wait a bit during the tourist/summer months. Recently their espresso machine broke and they are not planning on replacing it according to serving staff. Yet,... More

We went to Muse for lunch. They have a very nice selection on their menu. Soup, sandwiches, salads, and then heavier fare. We had the chicken pot pie (YUM), blue cheese salad (YUM), soup (DOUBLE YUM) and caesar. The decor is great, the service is great. However, it happened to be FREEZING in there!

The Muse is an amazingly good Museum restaurant! One of the best in the World! and we have been to museums all over the world. The Muse is a natural extension of the Anchorage Museum and enhances the overall experience. The space is impressive comparable to a chic upscale restaurant you might find in New York or London. The food... More

My girlfriend and I were making a day of it with shopping and hanging out. We decided to go for a glass of wine and a couple small dishes. The decor is bold with the contrast of red and white. The chairs were cheap and uncomfortable. We were sat at a table first next to a family with small children,... More
