We stopped in Muriel's to sit at the bar because their sign outside advertised burned sage margaritas, and ended up there for an hour, enjoying margaritas and dessert. In fact, we decided to stop back the next day, because the quality of the food and drinks, as well as the atmosphere, was top notch. The burned sage margaritas were every... More

I feel like if I were more sophisticated I would have rated this restaurant as "excellent" instead of just "very good". I will explain. My husband and I chose Muriel's because it was next door to our hotel and had many excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. Also, who wouldn't love a restaurant that leaves a table available for the resident ghost?!... More

One of my favorite restaurant. They do a great job, and can handle bigger groups. Try their shrimp goat cheese crepes. Nice looking interior. Everyone in our group of 16 enjoyed it. Would go back again.

We ate here for our anniversary dinner. We were greeted with a champagne toast, and had some fantastic drinks. I had the wood grilled tournedos of beef. I requested them rare, and they were rare and fork tender. The sauces were excellent. My husband had blackened redfish, and it was cooked perfectly. Their blackening seasoning was perfect- not bitter like... More

We had a lunch group of 11 girls on a bachelorette party for lunch at Muriel's on a Saturday. We didn't have a reservation, however the restaurant was very accommodating. We had a short wait, but that was okay, because the hostess took us upstairs to the Sceonce Room and gave us a little history lesson. The ambiance and energy... More

As far as a Sunday Brunch is concerned; it is the best New Orleans has to offer. Period. Service is as good as it gets (our waiters - David and Katelyn), food quality and presentation excellent. Beautiful restaurant, I recommend reservations, they open at 10:30 AM on Sunday. Be sure to sneak a peek at the "ghost table"... Is the... More

Muriel's has it all...fine dining, great staff, great food. If you are visiting NOLA and on Jackson Square you must go in and try one of their great cocktails ( Fleur de Lis is my gf's fav) AMD their crawfish crepes.

The restaurant has a nice ambience and even a "ghost" story. I been referred to this place by many individuals and had expected the food to be great, but to my disappointment it was just average. I have sampled better food from lower rated restaurants. We ordered appetizers, entrees and desert from a pre-fix menu during the COOLinery week, I... More

This is one of the best restaurant's I've ever dined in. The service was impeccable, the atmosphere was old world style with a modern flair. I chose from the menu that included an appetizer (pecan encrusted alligator--the best gator I've ever tasted) the drum fish--not only was the fish cooked perfectly but the sauce on the plate was amazing and...

My wife and I had lunch there, arriving just before the end of lunch service at 2:30. We did not realize that service stopped just minutes after we arrived until we got there. I always feel funny about this and when we mentioned that we could come back, the hostess replied that it would be no problem at all as... More
