We chose Muriel's to see the Séance Room. That by the way was very nice. We were allowed to take drinks from the bar and spend some time up there by ourselves with our group taking pictures, etc. Seemed like it was going to be one of those really special parts of a good trip...until we had dinner. The food... More

We were apprehensive about this place based on a few TripAdvisor reviews, but it was a very nice dining experience. Customers were generally dressed up - country club casual - and the dining room was pretty quiet. Excellent service from waiters and especially the attentive managers. We ate traditional New Orleans cuisine and were very pleased with everything from soup... More

Muriel's at Jackson Square is a great restaurant with charm, excellent service and food prepared with great care and thought in every dish. The paring of vegetables, meat/seafood is a testament to their chef. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a great night in New Orleans. Casual to dressy is the attire for this restaurant. Be sure to make... More

Four of us so enjoyed brunch here last Saturday. The menu is varied and the food was much better than average but what really puts Muriel's near the top of my list is the ambience, the period setting and the professional, personable wait staff. Just steps off Jackson Square, I felt transported to a more refined world. We loved the... More

A group of 10 of us went here for my friend's 30th birthday this past Saturday and it was just such a perfect experience for all of us! Our waitress was amazing- super knowledgeable and PATIENT. Very friendly and no issues splitting our bill up (and getting it correct). A true professional. The food was to perfection - the flavor... More

We dined at Muriel's and were not disappointed. The food and service were excellent. Although we did not have a reservation, we were seated promptly and thorough enjoyed an excellent leisurely dinner. My husband dined on the cioppino and I had stuffed pecan roasted drum which was exquisite, moist and flaky. We finished this lovely meal with break pudding, crème... More

We went to Muriel's after our Ghost Tour and had a wonderful dinner. It was a great place to eat for out last dinner in New Orleans. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. They also have a patio area on the second floor which is overlooking Jackson Square and wonderful for enjoying a drink.
