“Great little sushi restaurant near the beach”
Review of Muse Sushi Bar

Muse Sushi Bar
Ranked #40 of 222 Restaurants in San Clemente
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 June 2017

Stopped in this restaurant for lunch while in San Clemente on business. Located in the downtown section of town with other restaurants and shops. Had to park in a general city parking lot (FREE) and walk in a block or so but it was worth it. Staff was very friendly. Miso soup, sushi and roll I had were excellent. Typical price for this type of sushi and portions were good. Had the yellowtail (Hamacha) and Fresh water eel (Unagi) sushi and a Kicker roll...spicy tuna, spicy crab, avocado with yellowtail on the outside. Definitely had a nice "kick".

While visiting San Clemente, we asked around for the best sushi and, hands down, we kept hearing Muse! Happy to say, their food exceeded expectations! The restaurant is very small and typically does not take reservations. We went twice for dinner during the week by 6 pm and had no problems with getting seated. Don't let the small space make your decision - the sushi quality is well worth the tight space! If you like edamame as a starter, you can choose from the typical version or go for a spicy version that has quick a kick. Salads are fresh and several include fish. We loved the poki salad and spicy tuna salad - both were a generous portion. Special rolls were great - one better than the other! Melt in your mouth, tasty toppings, and good size rolls. Highly, highly recommended!

We were going to other sushi spots, but they weren't opened for lunch yet, so decided to try this new one. What a wonderful experience! The lunch specials are an incredible value. Staff is lovely. Great location too, for people watching on the main shopping street in San Clemente.

I love eating at this place. We come here with friends a lot and everyone loves what they get. It is never overly crowded, and the food is amazing. I strongly recommend the Last Night in San Clemente roll. Great place for a sushi roll or Japanese food!
