An enjoyable dinner

My sister and I came here on Valentine's Day for dinner. We ordered a 3 course meal off the set menu which was very reasonably priced. The food was pretty good (a bit too much sauce on my fish which was quite overpowering but still enjoyable nonetheless) and we were served quickly. The staff were... read more

Beautiful large restaurant with lots of detail. They have a jazz band that plays through different sections of the restaurant. It's expensive, eggs Benedict is $19! Make reservations, it's very popular. We found out later, on a ghost tour, that a previous owner had lost this place in a card game and hung himself shortly after. The second floor has... More

My fiancé and I had an amazing dinner at Muriel's. The have both Creole and Cajun specialties and fresh seafood. It is in the perfect location in the quarter right down from the place de armes hotel and across from Jackson square. Very romantic for couples.

We stumbled across this place in Jackson square one hot afternoon to grab a beverage with friends on the balcony. I was so intrigued with the history here that we booked the next night for dinner. It was wonderful. The staff was more than attentive and the meal was delicious. Red velvet ice cream sandwich for dessert-- need I say... More

I highly recommend the Crawfish & Goat Cheese crepes, one of the best appetizers I've ever had, and not something you see anywhere else. The ambiance is great, located right on the corner of Jackson Square. The Seafood Bayoubaisse as a main course is also great.

I was so excited to dine at Muriel's because of the haunted history and in general, the beautiful homestead. I was very disappointed by the food. This was a quiet couples trip on our last night and we were prepared to spend a good deal of money, so the prices were not unexpected. I ordered the shrimp and grits and... More

Fantastic meal, great service, beautiful surroundings. What more could you ask for? The shrimp and grits and the pecan crusted drum were better than our expectations. Fabulous appetizers and creme Brule.

The concierge at our hotel recommended Muriel's (she got a great table with little advance notice) and we were very pleased with the choice. Muriel's has a couple of different service areas, we were seated in the quieter section. They have a good ala -carte selection , but we chose the "combination" selection (gumbo / entree/ desert) are were very... More

This was worth it!! The food was great and we loved the choices available to us. This was what I expected of a traditional New Orleans restaurant. The Maitre'D was knowledgeable and engaged us in a long conversation on Southern food and New Orleans culture.

We arranged to meet a friend, who we had not seen for 20 years in this fantastic restaurant. It was such an elegant, timeless place, as if we'd stepped back in time. The service was second to none and the food, Cajun Creole, was delicious. We truly experienced Southern hospitality at it's best and it didn't cost a fortune. When... More
