Muse is in an old house between Meeting and King, well located for an easy walk to dinner. We sat in a tiny courtyard which seemed cozy and less crowded than the main house. Our meal was fine if not truly exceptional, bib lettuce with goat cheese and pasta carbonara.

We dined outside on the small patio, and had a fantastic meal with an attentive waitress. My husband had the chef's choice steak, which was cooked perfectly. I enjoyed the local shrimp with mascarpone polenta which was wonderful.The shrimp were perfectly cooked, and the polenta imaginatively and perfectly seasoned. We will definitely go back on our next trip to Charleston.

This is a pretty ecletic restaurant with a wine-by-the-glass list to die for. We ordered 4 different wines with our dinner -- unique and inexpensive wines (I collect). I had an excellent veal scallopine and my wife had a taglitelle bolagnese -- homemade pasta and sauce. The highlight was the homemade lamb sausage appetizer. Good prices. My one negative is... More

Had seen mixed reviews so we went into Charleston to test Muse. It is located on a side street off of King that seemed quiet until a fashion photo shoot blocked the whole street and forced us to roam around looking for parking. The waiter had experience in Cape Cod especially Chatham which we know very well. He was a... More

We always like to eat in Charleston when we have the opportunity because there are so many great restaurants there. Muse was highly rated so we thought that we would try it. Parking was challenging. Our server Don was not that friendly, which is unusual in a southern restaurant. I started with grilled calamari which was partly raw and totally... More

Muse is on Society Street between King and Meeting. It is a cozy place, not a huge restaurant by any means and the service is personal and excellent. We started the meal with a delicious glass of prosecco. The waiter brought out some fresh warm bread and excellent olive oil infused with pepper to dip it into. First I had... More

Muse is on Society, a side street, somewhat removed from the strip of bars and restaurants at the other end of King. The atmosphere is absolutely personal, nothing cookie-cutter or corporate anywhere. The style could be called "theatrical-eclectic". Each room in the restaurant has its own color palette and style of furnishing. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The kitchen... More

this restaurant is in an older house. unfortunately, one can't tell if the decor is intentional or a result of neglect (e.g. a large door was attached by one hinge). the bar was crowded and looked inviting. we were seated in a small room. I had the gnocchi - warm, not hot, and tasted floury, - not a great success.... More

So today at lunch after finding the only place on Charleston where you can get a bad meal, I only went out because I felt I had to, and planned to tiredly walk 15min to the highly recommended SNOB. Walked out the door of my b&b and saw this super chic place directly across the street I somehow didn't notice... More
