We had dinner at Muriel's during our recent stay in New Orleans. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. We got there a little bit early and they weren't seating people for dinner when we arrived but that was no problem. We were directed to the Bar area where we stayed for about 15 minutes and had a...

During our 5 day stay in New Orleans, we ate at some of the best restaurants in the French Quarter, including Antoine's, K-Paul's and the newbie, Pesce. Muriel's outdid them all with overall best total quality experience! The service was perfect, all courses of food were simply outstanding, and the pricing was not off-the-charts. Their Pecan-Crusted Bread Pudding was absolutely... More

Muriel's is definitely one of the better restaurants in New Orleans. I went here for lunch and dinner and really enjoyed the food. Seriously, the food is excellent. The service is great and the setting is very comfortable with a calm but fun ambiance. The restaurant is a little on the pricey side but makes sense because of the location,... More

It was our first evening in NO and we were looking for a restaurant serving typical southern style food. We found Muriel's with a great selection of canjun and creole meals. We had both the duck breast together with a variety of vegetables. Perfectly cooked. The waiters were very obliging. The restaurant offers a cultivated ambience. We would highly recommend... More

We went with a big group for business. The food was pretty good, nothing amazing, The acorn squash soup was very good. The vegetarian plate was good but they could include more vegetarian options which were needed. The desserts were very good and a good size to share.

I had the shrimp and lump crab salad and it was beautiful, fresh and well presented. The tour of the building was fascinating.. upstairs there were rich furnishings (there was a room that looked like it was from Jeanie's bottle!) and balconies with gorgeous views. The downstairs was just a touch shabbier and the atmosphere was just a little strained.... More

3 Course Prix Fixe menu is both affordable and delicious with many selections. For cocktails we started with a muddled sage margarita ans a rosemary and jalapeno martini. The fresh herbs were carried through into the entrees. Meals were served piping hot and with respect for the pace you were dining at. The goat cheese and shrimp crepes were amazing.... More

Wandered into this restaurant after we were meandering around the square...really good meal. I had a salad with shrimp crabmeat that was really good and my husband had a fish dish that was excellent. Desserts were outrageous!Great service and the waitress took on us a little tour of the place at the conclusion of our meal. Highly recommend it.

The food was delicious but the price was high so it was not a great value. Nevertheless, I'd go back again if I wanted to splurge. If you want a quiet meal this is not the place to go. The decibel count was extremely high -- we had to shout across the table.

Yes, the pork chop is amazing. Truly. Order it. Almost everything was great, including a wonderful pear cocktail. The only issue we had was the blue cheese mashed potatoes that we SUPER dry. And when we told the waitress, she responded, "yes, they look dry." And walked away. We still paid for them. Everything about this restaurant is nice and,... More
