We were searching for a bread pudding and saw a picture online. We just stopped by to grab bread pudding to go. "This is amazing!" were here actual words.

We were looking for a Jazz brunch in NOLA . Muriels Jackson Square was just the ticket. Very prompt service which reflected an "AMAZON" like precision to their delivery. They have done it right. the premises were very relaxing. The food was superior. The Bloody Mary was superb. We only made it through most of the appetizers on the menu.... More

Muriel's is very elegant on one corner of Jackson Square in New Orleans' French Quarter. The food was exceptional and service was on point. We loved the eclectic decor and left happy and satisfied. My wife selected from the pre-fix menu……she was so impressed with the quality of the food. I ordered the turtle soup which arrived at my table... More

I came here because it was highly recommended by my father. We had an easy time being seated because we arrived right at 530. My wife and I both ordered prefix and although everything was good it wasn't amazing. At the end of the night our bill was over $100 and I felt like the meal wasn't a $100 meal.

We got a wonderful corner table for lunch. The service was spot on and the yellowfin tuna special was scrumptious! The restaurant is well laid out through different rooms and the location of tables invite private conversation but still deliver a very social experience. Would definitely recommend!

We only had drinks here on this visit. The balcony overlooking the square compensates for the drink prices.

We really enjoyed our meal and service a Muriel's. The atmosphere and location is a perfect setting in NOLA. The service was outstanding. We celebrated a birthday here, and the server brought us a special desert, without asking. The managers were professional, attentive, and stopped by to say hello. The menu has a wide variety of items. I especially enjoyed... More

I choose Muriel's for my birthday dinner and was not disappointed at all. Prices are a little on the higher side but it was definitely worth it! The staff was very polite and accommodating when we asked to see "the ghost table"!

As my love and I were perusing the streets of the French quarter, trying to find reverend voodoos shop to purchase another flying Frieda kahlo... We were magnetically drawn to Muriel's. Loved the building and atmosphere - Victorian classy but with a slightly funky twist. I loved the open doors, the Victorian furniture, just a cool vibe. Service was great,... More
