The Séance Lounge is the place for a relaxed, comfortable meeting before or after dining. Comprised of two areas, The Outer & The Inner Séance, the Séance also tells the story of a mystic & checkered past. The Outer Séance addresses the New Orleans era of Storyville & when Muriel's Jackson Square was one of the French Quarter's best bordellos! The Inner Séance is the preferred domain of the resident ghost, Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan, & is the perfect spot for an intimate conversation & a drink amongst its plush surroundings.

great cocktails, table d'hote 3 course menu option, delicious food, atmosphere! We were a large party and the waitress had some difficulty remembering to get everyone's drink and food orders. However she worked hard to please. Be sure and go upstairs to view old rooms, especially the "haunted lounge."

Wonderful historic building. Service was excellent. The cocktails are fun and different. The food was above average. Overall and lovely evening. The restaurant can be a bit noisy but still fun.

Do not skip Sunday Jazz Brunch because you have a small child. They have a children's menu! The grillades and grits were amazing. The atmosphere and music excellent. The service was good but not excellent. They were very busy but we were very happy to take some time. It's right on the corner of Jackson square. Don't skip this jazz... More

Lovely place tucked on the border of Jackson Square. They have a bar out the back, nice to sit pre dinner. I recommend the Blackened Red Fish - not cheap however exquisite. Shrimp & grits was tasty too, Great food.

I'd definitely go back to Muriel's, even with all of the great options in New Orleans. We went to Sunday Jazz Brunch and although it was really loud (we sat next to the band) the music was great! Get the shrimp and grits without a doubt- so rich and good after a long night. The salad with green apples is... More

recommended by the concierge in our hotel this didn't disappoint. It has quirky decor, without being weird, really great food and great service. The location is spot on too in the middle of the French Quarter close to all the action, but without being in it!

My best dinner in my latest trip to the Big Easy! I had the chicken & andouille etouffee and the very first taste of the roux/creole sauce just blew me away! Red beans and rice - the same. Fantastic. Great spicing, multi-layer flavors. Wonderful service. I would go back in a heartbeat.

I was anticipating so much more. This interior of this beautiful building, at the heart of the French Quarter, has been given a face lift when sometimes it's best left alone. Who was the crass Interior Designer who thought that putting a Chinese reproduction of a painting by Bouguereau on the wall would be what was required? Food was passable... More

Our 6th visit to Naw'lins & we had 2 "newbies" with us.....wanted them to experience Muriel's bar! The last time I was there the bartender was all about telling us the history & the ghostly experiences.....and that was what I wanted for our guests. A young lady was bartending the other afternoon and she could have cared less about us.......being... More

I made reservations for two for a birthday. The first plus was actually receiving a phone call to confirm. Only got better from there.The service was impeccable and the food wonderfully delicious. The best pork chops ever! The red velvet ice cream sandwich was intoxicating. Thank u so much for the amazing experience!
