Lovely setting in an old home. Great wine list, great food, great service. Grilled calamari, sea bass and melt in your mouth bolognese with fresh pasta. Highly recommend this charming restaurant

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

The restaurant is a small eatery and wine bar with a cozy atmosphere. Reminds me of dining in an old Charleston home. The "restaurant week" menu was well thought out and dishes brilliantly prepared. The highlights were the roasted apple & butternut squash soup along with the provolone picante fonduta. Main entrees were delicious. My favorite desert was the salted... More

Server was quite stoic and never smiled. And while the charm of the old Victorian home was captivating, the small parlor rooms inhibited a quiet, romantic ambiance when seated next to a loud, large table. The wine selection was great but a sommellier would have been able to recommend better wines than our server. The cream of onion soup was... More

On a whim, we decided to return (after several years) to Muse for Christmas Eve dinner with friends. Muse is located in an old house in the middle of Society St, between Meeting & King, so super central. The building was home to the legendary Freda's restaurant (which closed...early 1990s?), later a Mexican, later a dress shop, and now Muse.... More
