The Bistro at Muriel’s Jackson Square offers New Orleans classics like Gumbo, BBQ Shrimp, Oysters "Muriel", Turtle soup, Fried Gulf Shrimp Po-boy, Crabmeat Imperial, Shrimp Remoulade & contemporary Creole cuisine like Pecan Crusted Drum & Wood Grilled Tuna while the Courtyard Bar is the perfect place to drop by for drinks & appetizers. The Séance Lounge is the place for a relaxed, comfortable meeting before or after dining. Comprised of two areas, The Outer & The Inner Séance, the Séance also tells the story of a mystic & checkered past. The Outer Séance addresses the New Orleans era of Storyville & when Muriel's Jackson Square was one of the French Quarter's best bordellos! 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.

Fantastic food. Great atmosphere.

Incredible food. This is the place to go for authentic Orleans dinner. We went the first time for lunch based on a recommendation from our Ghost Tour guide. Very good meal for under $20. It was so good, we went back for dinner.A must visit. Also, if you go for lunch, you can ask to go upstairs and... read more

We had dinner here with another couple while at a conference. Everything was really terrific- the location, the ambience, the service, and especially the food! All four of us had the table d'hote menu. All four of us were going to have the baby drum until the waiter said the pork chop was the best thing on the menu, so... More

On our last night here in town we found ourselves without plans for dinner and we wanted to go somewhere interesting and nice. We had both read good reviews about Muriel's and of course knew the stories of the hauntings. Last minute we called for reservations and were pleased to find out we able to get in....

Muriel's I beat the dinner rush in the door, but not by much, still my waters, Stephanie and Scott, were always there, ready for my needs. I ordered from Muriel's Table d'Hote menu, so I ordered my appetizer, entrée, and dessert all at once. I started with the El Diablo cocktail, billed as a margarita with some "spicy kick," well,...

I ate here alone on a long layover between flights. I had just enough time to walk through the French Quarter and have a nice lunch. The food was very good. I really liked the turtle soup. I also had duck, which was very tasty. I was so full, I didn't get to try any of the delicious sounding desserts.... More

There are so many wonderful restaurants in and around the Quarter. We always go to our favorites but always try something new. Muriel's was wonderful. Sit in the red room near the floor to ceiling windows and watch the people as you have a $4.00 martini for lunch (vacation, right). Pork chop on red beans and rice then go for... More

This restaurant is a nice one, dress business casual. They offer a good assortment of drinks, I tried the "Honey Child" and it was a good one. We had couple of appetizers each & saved ourselved for beignets at Cafe Du Monde just down the street.

We just spent a week in New Orleans. We ate at a variety of places. This one was recommended by our B&B owner who also secured us reservations. Very nicely decorated restaurant, fairly busy, but not noisy. We had wonderful service from beginning to end. I split the table d'hote dinner with my brother. We shared the savory gorgonzola cheesecake... More
