“Great music, decent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

The live music here is second to none. Skip all the party places on Bourbon street and head straight here for a great night for some great music, food and wine. The place was packed and we had to wait for 45 minutes, but it was worth the wait.

“If Your in New Orleans this a Must Visit Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

We joined the fun and the great music last night! Four of us ordered 6 different entrées. Lamb sliders, Mac & meat balls, spring rolls, shrimp appetizer, fish tacos, and fries with goat cheese. What a feast. We passed everything around and enjoyed every bite. Music was real New Orleans. Place your orders at the bar and the food comes out quickly and hot. What a great place.

“Nice surprise & lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We found the Three Muses to be a very nice surprise with an easy going atmosphere, excellent live music and very tasty food. The food is smaller is proportions but they do mention that in the menu plus it allows you to order multiple dishes to sample. The wine and beer selection is great and reasonably priced.

The only reason I didn't give it 5 out of 5 is because the service from out our waitress wasn't always fantastic - she bought us over a white wine instead of a red (that we ordered) and her reaction when we let her know was like it was our mistake. Other than that it was a lovely & enjoyable night out that we are happy to recommend.

“smallest food and welcome”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Got there early by accident - about 515 - the kitchen was open but the music did not begin till 6. Had wanted to catch some music while eating. The lady at the door says "you can eat but when you finish, you will have to get up from the table". Huh? Obviously they are trying to avoid low turnover tables but this seemed just unfriendly. Went ahead in despite all this, and had fish tacos. I have been here before but the pricey tacos were not just small plate but "smallest" plate. Barely more than one bite each, it was about the lowest value meal I can recall. Have to reduce stars from my last visit. This place was just average. I will check out the competitors next time.

“off the tourist path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Three Muses is located on Frenchman Street, which is a must see by itself. This is a street where locals go and it's a part of New Orleans you should visit.

Three Muses is a small establishement, if you get a seat, don't give it up. The live music is great! The atmosphere is warm if crowded. Three Muses has a limited menu - but the food is good, we had the feta fries and the cheese playe - yum!
