Reserved dinner for a fairly large party (11 persons), arrived at the stipulated time to find out that the table was not ready and had to split the group into 2 tables in separate rooms after a wait at the bar. The place was quite crowded and very noisy; it was difficult to hold a conversation. The... read more

Muriels, change your menu. I dine at Muriel's once a year with a group and it seems you still have not changed your menu in at least 3 years. Also, Frank your server needs a refresher course in serve along with the older manager with his chest puffed out. No, one at the end of dinner came and apologized for... More

Great location, great service, great food. I had been in New Orleans for a couple of days and no matter what time of day I passed it this was a busy place. Take no chances make a reservation first.

This place was still all happening on a Sunday night. A very warm welcome, excellent service, fantastic food. The interior is spacious and intriguing. Not at all what we expected from the outside. Really had fun here and unilaterally agreed that this was the best food of our five day New Orleans experience. We found the place through Zagat, looking... More

Welcoming and quiet surroundings among the bricks. Gourmet style Louisiana menu for our first day "fancy lunch". Our beef and pork beef were saucy delicious with a glass of wine. Visit the upstairs parlor and balcony for a colorful view of Southern living in New Orleans.

We loved our dinner at Muriel's. The sauces were delicious. I had the salmon and my husband had the duck. The atmosphere was casual elegant and the service was attentive but not overbearing. A lovely meal from salad thru dessert.

I loved the crawfish and goat cheese filled crepes, they were delicious! The Seafood Bayoubaisse was also wonderful. If I ever get back to New Orleans again I will return here, it was my favorite restaurant.

We had an excellent brunch - delicious food, attentive service and nice live music. Definitely a splurge, but right off of Jackson Square a lovely retreat for a special brunch.

Very tasty food - very expensive price tag. Service was on point! Bloody mary's were a little weird tasting. The interior decor was pretty awesome (lots of space, ask to be seated under the skylights near the bar area!). The Eggs Benedict were super yummy! Not a lot of options for Vegans FYI!
