This is probably the nicest venue in Newport, though not on the water. The service was very good and the room is truly pretty, in an old 100 year renovated mansion, part of a boutique hotel. One of us had the restaurant week steak which...More

The room at Muse is lovely but the layout has a steady flow of bar patrons cutting through the dining area to get to the bar. As the evening progresses, this becomes more annoying. The service is slow and unprofessional. Drink and wine selection is...More

Description
Our outstanding simply sumptuous restaurant, Muse, has earned myriad awards and accolades since its opening in 2011. With a strong focus on what it takes to be a leading restaurant in Newport, Rhode Island, Muse has a loyal following amongst residents of New England in addition to the gourmet guests. Muse is open daily for dinner, with service commencing at 6pm and running later on weekends. This awarded hotel restaurant is an echo of the bygone era in which dinner was the centerpiece of the day and Newport social scene. The dining room itself reflects this style with period features contributing to a freshly modern and inviting aesthetic.
