We visited Muse onThursday after wanting to go there for some time. From speaking to people in the Hunter Valley we had high expectations. We started off by sitting the fire and having a pre dinner drink before being seated by our waiter Boris.

I will start with the service which was faultless. The service is a high light and is very fine tuned. The service was friendly, attentive and unpretentious. Our waiter Boris was fantastic. I thought the service at Muse was much better then a number of two chef hatted restaurants we had dined at.

The food was amazing the scollops with the butter sauce and chorizo crumbs were delicious (Thanks John the Pom at Petsons for this tip). We also had the quail risotto. The quail was juicy and the risotto creamy. For mains we had lamb and my wife had the venisson. Both were perfectly cooked. For dessert I had the creame brulee.

If you want a memorable dinner this is the place. I dont think it will be long before Muse moves from one chef hat to two. I cannot wait to go back again.

We had a family birthday lunch - everything was excellent. The quality of the food was high, the atmophere was good - lots of people were in the restaurant but we felt like we were there on our own. The waitress was friendly and obliging - not over the top but everything was taken care of. A lovely experience and we will return.

Came here on a saturday night for our anniversary dinner, its a lovely ambient place helped with the large fireplace as the focal point of the restaurant. The place was fully booked, the service was excellent and the food at $110 for the degustation was great value compared to many others I've tried that were definitely not as good and more expensive. Everything was presented beautifully and tasted great. Definitly a place to come for a special occasion.
