Good food. Amazing cocktails

We ate here on our first night in town. We had a large party of 7 and were seated very quickly. Service was great. The highlight of the night was the cocktails. I had the Pimm's cup which is a New Orleans specialty and this one was the best I had on our trip. Found out after we had eaten... read more

My sister and I ate here on our last night in NOLA and it was outstanding! We waited about 20 minutes for a table and were actually thrilled to wait because there is a lot to see with the decor. We took our delicious cocktail from the bar and brought it upstairs to the lounge area. Vintage, India inspired couches,... More

This place was wonderful for lunch. Everyone loved their food. Also they let you tour the whole mansion as its said to be haunted. Very cool experience.

A group of my fraternity brothers in I ate at Muriel's during Mardi Gras weekend 2015. To say the least, we all were completely satisfied with our meals and the impeccable service. All the food was great, but the goat cheese and crawfish crepes I had as an appetizer was amazing! Would definitely go back again!

It started with the service being highly professional extremely courteous and not over bearing in short superb. Our meals were excellent obviously well prepared as the presentation clearly showed hence the quality was certainly there. As with New Orleans Muriel's has history all around it and is a facinating place. Our desserts just topped the entire evening off to perfection... More

A delicious Sunday jazz brunch at another great NOLA restaurant. Again the dishes served were excellent, service was to perfection and the atmosphere was great. We sat in a corner and had a great view of Jackson Square. The jazz combo played our requests as we enjoyed our meal. It was a very relaxing meal and enjoyed by all. Great... More

Sunday before Mardi Gras, we stopped in and made reservations for an hour late. Food was excellent. They had a gluten free menu for my wife. Food was an excellent value. Very friendly and attentive staff, even during a very busy time.
