“These guys have it wired”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

These guys just don't seem to miss a beat. This was our favorite place last year and it was again this year. We went to see Glenn David Andrews, but the restaurant is really a treat. By far better food than what we got the Boucherie (?) uptown. One of the suposedly 'large' dishes was small, but it was at the end of the night and I think they were running out of food.

Glenn David Andrews is not to be missed. He plays here or at the dba another of his favorite haunts on a regular basis.

If you like the Frenchmen Street atmosphere, visit the even more hip (and slightly more risky) clubs at St. Claude and Marginy streets. (pronounced "MARE in nee" streets. Walking distance, but I wouldn't.

“Great food and ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

The food is tapas-style, small plates, and very good. There is live jazz entertainment. The restaurant is on Frenchmen St., a bit mellowed than Bourbon St.

“Great time outside the French Quarter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

As everyone says Frenchmen St seems to be where more locals hang out in New Orleans. We had a great time at Three Muses this last Saturday night. We arrived around 645 and the doorman was friendly took our name and told us to come back in half an hour. We went to Snug harbor for a drink - which was very disappointing - the bartender was extremely rude.

When we arrived back at Three Muses our table was ready right away. It was just me and my husband and we got a table right up front. The system was explained to us (order at bar etc) and it worked fine, happy with the service. Drinks were great, food was a nice relief from the predictable creole/Cajun fried stuff we saw everywhere else. Unlike other reviews we did not feel hurried out at all. The music was great and a super vibe. Our best night out in New Orleans I would definitely go back!

“A little bit of Spain in New Orleans.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

Having read about Three Muses on the website along with the fact that Frenchman Street was where the locals hang out we decided to pay them a visit. It was fairly early in the evening about 5.30 pm when we arrived without a reservation. A lady was on the door and let us in when we said that we wanted to eat there. A few side tables were allowed for drinkers only. We were given a table along with menus and were informed that when we were ready to order to place the order at the bar with the barman. i.e. drinks and food. Basically this is a self service restaurant until much later when it gets very busy and movement is difficult. This appears to be when the staff do attempt to serve. The menu is Tapas (small shared meals) based, brief but extremely varied and interesting. We ordered our drinks from the bar and then I ordered the Meat and Cheese Platter (olives, jamon, salami, cheese, etc.) the shrimp grilled I think with a delicious sauce, the pork bellies wow, mac n cheese not so hot and the fish tacos very good. The total with a couple of drinks for three excluding gratuities (self service) came to $82. By six o'clock the small place was filled to bursting, a lot of locals. We were entertained by an excellent group of four musicians which only added to the enjoyment of the evening - donations accepted at the end of their set. Very enjoyable!

“Great Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

Went here on a recommendation and boy were we pleased. We sat at the bar and listened to music from the band playing inside. The food was quite good and the bartenders were really nice.

A top spot in New Orleans.
