Menu Subject to Change


Exceptional service and fresh Northwest cuisine come together in splendid harmony at Muse, the official restaurant of the Seattle Symphony. Join us in our elegant, dinner-club-like space tucked away in Benaroya Hall where our menu capitalizes on Pike Place Market’s seasonal bounty. The oversized windows provide one of downtown’s most unique views onto the glitter and bustle of Second Avenue. 


Muse is open prior to most Seattle Symphony performances and select non-symphony performances. Not seeing a performance at Benaroya Hall? You’re welcome to join us just the same. We recommend that all our guests make a reservation: Call us at (206) 336-6699.


We’re tucked away on the main floor of Benaroya Hall, in the Norcliffe Founders Room. Once you’re inside the Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium, just look for the hallway hung with portraits of Symphony musicians, and follow the signs.
