My wife and I visited Charleston for her birthday and picked Muse for a nice dinner. It was an excellent dining experience. Wonderful service, good wine list, and fantastic food. We had Chef's choice steak and lamb chops and they were cooked perfectly. The chocolate torte was unbelievable. Highly recommended.

My adult daughter and I were in Charleston for one night. We went to Muse with her Charleston friend ... Otherwise would never have noticed it... The restaurant is in an old (colonial?) house ... (A really nice change of pace) ... Quiet, small tables, responsive but not-intrusive server. Really enjoyed the food.. We all had pasta dishes (I really... More

I can't comment on the food as we didn't eat. We were 2 couples dropping in after a long day of settling our daughters at C of C. The hotel bar was closing at 11. Apparently so was Muse, but the bartender, a recent grad, indulged us a drink and we had a fabulous time with him and ultimately the... More

This tiny Mediterranean restaurant may be off the beaten track but it is well worth your visit. The decor is intimate and romantic and immediately makes you feel at home. The menu is eclectic and the dishes are very flavorful without being imposing. Try the homemade Merguez sausage as an appetizer, and the flavors will immediately remind you of the... More

very strong drinks without much flavor. Didn't have dinner there but the atmosphere was nice and bartender was friendly.

This little gem,off the beaten path, on Society Street is a must visit. It is quaint as the restaurant is an original 1850's home. There is dining inside or out on the side patio. We dined on the outside patio/alley and it was so wonderfully nostalgic of the time period. The menu has a great selection of seafood, pasta's, good... More

I was in town for Spoleto Festival and needed to catch dinner between events at a convenient, walkable distance from my evening venue. A local friend suggested that I sit at the bar since I was going as a singleton, and I did. I at the grilled calamari as a first course and the crispy sea bass for dinner. Both... More

Liked the menu selections at Muse Restaurant. Had Steamed mussels for appetizer ( good) and Fettucine Carbonara with shrimp as main course. ( Good ). Wife had the fresh grilled snapper which she said was excellent. Very, very loud wine bar singles scene so I guess the hostess figured we would want to be away from them, so they sat... More

This one is worth a trip down the side street to quench your taste for some great dishes...some with a Mediterranean flair. Located in a house that was built in 1858, you can just imagine the first homeowners, and try and guess what each room, upstairs and downstairs, was used for way back in the day. My wife lived the...
