We stumbled upon Muse by accident. We were looking for last minute reservations on a Saturday night for a group of 8 people in Charleston and that's a tall order. We were lucky to find a spot at Muse and they did not disappoint! Service was efficient, informative and friendly and the decor was historic and exactly what you want... More

A restaurant, warm, romantic, friendly and full of southern hospitality. Meal was terrific, plenty of menu options, very reasonable wine list. Ultra friendly service. Highly recommend. Only advice would be to do a upgrade. Especially bathrooms.

If you're looking for a place that is different from the touristy places on E. Bay, try this lovely little restaurant on Society Street. So much charm and atmosphere! I had a salad with pickled shrimp added, and the fettucine. The chef accomodated my request to leave out the extra garlic! It was delicious! Very extensive wine list also. I... More

My wife and I went to the restaurant for Valentine's Day Dinner. The restaurant is located in an older house on Society Street in Charleston. On Valentine's Day, the restaurant had a set menu so, we had a limited number of choices. I think when we made our reservation that this should have been communicated to us. I think that... More

Having a mobility problem we were seated on the first floor in a lovely room. Our server, Kat, was pleasant. At first I was not happy with the prixfixe menu. There were enough choices and our dinner was delicious. The portions were perfect. I did take my dessert home. Wonderful night to spend with the man I love.

Charming, excellent service, good food. Loved the atmosphere! I don't have any complaints. That said....if you have mobility issues, ask for a first floor table.

Enjoyed a nice meal with my daughter last night. Very slow time here in Charleston. As it was quiet, everyone was seated in the downstairs room. Pleasant, though the upstairs rooms are nicer. My daughter enjoyed her bouillabaisse. My steak was good. Not great. A bit chewy. My fries were limp. Waitress was very friendly. Nice wine list.

I want to start out by saying, this is a go-to locals spot in Charleston. The bar is a very cool hang-out place, wine selections are exactly spot-on and the bar tenders are great! Everyone that works here are great. Food is excellent, but I think it's time to close the doors for a week or 2 and get to... More

We were going to see a performance at the Sottile Theater and wanted a place within walking distance to go for dinner. We decided to try Muse. We didn't visit the bar, but it looked very cozy, perhaps to being a little on the small side. We ate on the second floor which is comprised of several small rooms. For... More
