Dining in an historic (and haunted?) landmark is pretty cool, but even moreso what the food is that good. The escargot appetizer may be the best I have ever had. The blackened redfish tasted great and was expertly paired on the plate over a salad. The peanut butter dome is one of the more unique and tasty desserts I have... More

This is the perfect stop for the lunch special of the day. History seems to come alive when you walk through the doors. Service was excellent and the food delicious.

We ate at several restaurants during our visit...Muriel's service is top rate and the food is very good. The only thing that kept us from giving it 5 stars is the location which is on Jackson Square and a little squirrely at night with the panhandlers and homeless people. If arriving by cab or during the day you are ok.... More

One of the stops on our Foote ghost tour was Muriel's. It is located across from Andrew Jackson park near by the Cathedral. The background from the tour led us here. We went in for lunch and had a table for four in the open area by the sidewalk. The place was sparsely populated which was fine with us. We... More

Researched extensively the restaurants where we would dine over a five day NOLA stay. Murial's was the best! Food, atmosphere, and service were tops among the many fine dining places where we ate.

Visited during New Years. From the moment I called the hostess Colby took my reservation and gave me a overview of the venue! The moment we entered I recognized Colby voice and thanked her for getting honoring our reservation on a extremely busy weekend. She went a step further and introduced us to the owner Rick Gracia who personally led... More

We were fortunate to walk in and get one of the last tables for the Sunday jazz brunch (I'd advise reserving). This is a beautiful restaurant with two warm and inviting dining rooms and an enclosed courtyard. I had the three-course Creole brunch and the food was delicious. The service is top-notch. Not hard to understand why this is considered... More

Very popular tourist restaurant. Although the food was ok, the experience overall was not what we expected. Noisy and service was friendly but rushed and amateurish. Appetizers arrived before the wine. Also, when taking the order we were asked for our dessert order as well. Says it all.

There are numerous fine restaurants to enjoy in the French Quarter, but Muriel's never fails to delight. My husband and I eat at Muriel's every time we come to New Orleans. On this particular visit we only wanted a light late lunch. We were able to walk in without a reservation and seated in a beautiful courtyard area. I think... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
