Donnie, our bartender offered great, friendly service. Our main course was the short rib and it was very tender and served over a mixture of vegetables. Overall we though the food was very good. This a friendly place where it is easy to meet people.

We had our Friday night dinner of restaurant week at Muse. We had a great time. The dress for most diners was business casual and they were a nice crowd. Muse is housed in a restored house/office in downtown Charleston. They have worked hard to preserve the historic past of the building. We sat upstairs in the “piano” room, and... More

We enjoyed our 3-course meal during "Restaurant Week," which provided the fixed priced complete meal for $30. Good appetizers and dessert selection. Adequate wine menu choices.

This restaurant was fully booked, so we ate elsewhere and went there for cocktails. I didn't like the first one I tried so they changed it for me at no extra cost!

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
