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.

I've lived here 25 years, and you will never go wrong with Muriel's The food is consistently excellent, as is the service and ambience. Their Pre- Fix option is a very economical option. Situated right on Jackson Square. I've never known anybody from here who's had a less than stellar experience.

I searched a bunch of restaurants in the quarter for a jazz brunch and I decided to book at Muriel's based on location and the menu. Even though the dining rooms were full when we arrived, we were able to get and change our reservation easily. We ordered a variety of food to share (shrimp and grits, eggs benedict, and... More

We stopped here for Sunday dinner. Overall beautiful restaurant and attentive staff. We ordered a bottle of wine, appetizers entrees and desert. Over all food was good, not the best I've ever had that left me dying to go back but it was good. We sat near the window and people watched which was entertaining!

We had our first night in New Orleans dinner here. Both the service and the food were wonderful. One of the most beautifully appointed restaurants in town. I would definitely come back and recommend it to everyone.

Classic NOLA food, atmosphere, music & service in the Quarter. Possibly the best location in the Quarter - just be sure to leave your car - elsewhere! There is NO parking to be found in the Quarter @ Noon on a Sunday. Muriel"s has beennthe scene for several memorable Sunday Brunches & we've never been disappointed! The food is "classic"... More

First let me say my dining companion does not eat bread or any gluten products. However she put down half of the bread offered and was thinking seriously about taking home the leftovers. So the bread is good. We had salads for lunch, steak for her, crab and shrimp for me. Both salads were amazing, mine had about a half... More

Wife and I both had the baby drum fish three course special. The salad and appetizer was great and the fish was excellent. We will be back!

We visited here as we walked the streets of NOLA. It was about 8:30 when we stopped in to grab a bite to eat. It was a Friday, but not overly crowded. Our waiter was pleasant, but his visits were far and few between. Food was good. The meal was not inexpensive, and therefore would have expected prompt service. The... More

Grab a drink from their great drink list - they are known for their mixology - and head upstairs for a great view of the quarter. Don't forget to stop by Seance Lounge for a real experience!
