I was in NOLA for business and had dinner with a colleague turned friend. He was in charge of reservations and chose well. I think I'd been to Muriel's on one other trip - with a larger group. Much nicer with just one friend, at a window table (where a second line for a wedding went by), with a superb... More

What a great restaurant! Someone from New Orleans recommended this restaurant and they were right on. The food was excellent and the ambiance was great. We had pecan encrusted drum and bouillabaisse ... DELICIOUS! The waitress also told us that this restaurant has some haunted areas. They let us go upstairs to the "red room" to check out the ghosts...... More

I had read several reviews about Muriel's service not being up to par but decided to try it anyway. I can say that if they had service issues, they have corrected them. We were seated early (ahead of our reservation time) and the service was impeccable. It is a very nice restaurant in a perfect location. My only criticism would... More

I went to multiple restaurants and this was the only place where the server actually brought out a birthday candle for me so I'm a little biased but I have to say overall this place exceeded my expectations. After a let down experience at Commanders Palace I was worried any other fancy place would disappoint but I enjoyed my food... More

We went for Sunday Jazz brunch. They sat us immediately and the staff were very nice and attentive. Jazz music goes between the three eating rooms so you don't hear jazz the whole time. They appear to move rooms every 15 mins. Food was excellent. Had eggs benedict. Note that the eggs have a sweet hollandaise type sauce on it.... More

I was on a business trip to New Orleans and had the opportunity to eat at Muriel's. The restaurant itself is nice, complete with table for the resident spirit and his guest. There were 10 of us in our group, but the service was great. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and attentive. I had an appetizer of shrimp and goat cheese... More

Upon the end of a French Quarter Ghost Tour, my daughter made reservations at Muriel's. It was particularly appropriate as the tour guide had just told the story of Muriel's ghostly resident and the table set for him in the adjoining alley area. We enjoyed the three course special, but would have appreciated just a bit more conversation from our... More

Walked in without a reservation for dinner and were seated right away. They had a three course special and it was amazing. Pecan alligator was a great appetizer. The half chicken and stuffing was great as well. Service was decent. Managers were helpful and very involved in serving meals. Will be back!

Centrally located in Jackson Square in yet another gorgeous historic building, Muriel's was definitely worth the visit. I had a wonderful seafood meal with excellent cocktails. The service was impeccable and the staff very friendly. There is courtyard and balcony seating in addition to indoor seating. Before or after your meal, treat yourself to the ballrooms and seance room upstairs--you... More

Beautiful restaurant and it even comes with a possible ghost sighting. All the food is great but the Goat Cheese crepes are something you must try - delicious. This is a great spot for brunch or to take a group for dinner.
