Some people said you can't have both good music AND good food. But those people never went here. Get a reservation so you won't be disappointed. They specialize in small plates. The shrimp dish is great. Actually we ordered one of each from the sea food selection. Rachel, our server did a great job. Good suggestion s and helped our... More

Past by this spot on our 1st trip to NOLA last night, and was such a cosy vibe with wonderful music we made a reservation for this evening at 5 pm when the restaurant opened and it did not disappoint. The artistry of the chef and the performers is something I'll be longing for in any future dining experience. Looking... More

We went to see a particular musician play and then half way through his set he got up and walked out, no one really knew why. But the staff did not miss a beat and had another great band on stage in less than 20 minutes. Gotta love New Orleans!! If you are grabbing something to eat I strongly recommend... More

We originally intended to eat at a neighboring restaurant by a "local" encouraged us to try "Three Muses". Frenchman Street is where many "locals" hang out for the art scene, music and great restaurants. The area does not have the "touristy" feel, which we wanted. Definately make reswervations as the place fills up quickly and stays busy everyday its open.... More

Stopped in here in early October and loved it! We were seated at the bar and had some great food. Beware, the portions are small but the food is amazing and that is what we were looking for. The bartender was so nice and friendly and the live jazz was amazing!!!

Food was faultless as ever, tasty and filling, however, the hostess was rude and more concerned about checking her snapchat or whatever social media she couldn't stop staring at than greeting paying guests. She vaguely waved us to our table with little more than a grunt then left us to guess which one we were to sit at, I was... More

We experienced many good (and not so good) restaurants in New Orleans, but Three Muses was my favourite. With its cozy space, laidback flair, and lively atmosphere, it seemed to me to be the perfect local spot to enjoy a good meal and even better music. We sampled a number of dishes and there weren't any disappointments. Top marks go... More

Went to dinner and found the food to be so so. I wasn't surprised because this appears to be mainly a music venue that offers food not a restaurant that offers music. Staff and service was friendly and attentive. Music was local and enjoyable just don't a lot in the food department.

This is what you expect out of New Orleans. Live music but so loud that you could not talk over dinner. And the food was great. Still thinking about the blue cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon.

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighborhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
