Wonderful Brunch in perfect location

Sunday brunch here was a wonderful introduction to our week in New Orleans. The food was sublime, goat's cheese pancakes to die for, fab wine and a wandering jazz band. Worth every penny (it is a little expensive).

This was handy for our hotel and the food was pretty good and not bad value. We had the set price menu, which I think was $35 for 3 courses, all which were OK. A couple of outstanding dishes were. French Onion soup. Gorganzola Cheesecake. Pork chop.

We had 7:30 reservations for our party of 6 on a Saturday night. We arrived a little before and the table was ready. New Orleans restaurants were offering a "Coolinary" Menu in an effort to attract locals. The menu offered a choice of appetizer, entree and dessert for $39. What a delicious selection. Two of our party had the Gumbo,... More

First off, I highly recommend a reservation. The bar serves a full menus though if you are in a tight spot. I had the redfish which was delicious. If I had eaten here first, this would have been a 5 star but I had the redfish at Gallitorie's and it was a bit better. I would highly recommend this restaurant... More

The food is AMAZING!!!! This place is on the pricer side but it's worth it. You are treated like a 5 star guest, the place is gorgeous, and the food is to die for! Got the pork chop and it was so good, along with the bread pudding. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Muriel's is the place to go if you would like a delicious dinner and wonderful atmosphere. Upstairs has an outside balcony where you can go and have a cocktail before dinner and watch what is going on in the Square. They had a beautiful table set for us to celebrate my birthday with a great view of Jackson Square. The... More

We've been at Muriel's for dinner. Although we had no reservations, we were taken immediately to a table. We've tried the soup of the day (chicken curry soup) and the gumbo - both of them were delicious. For the second course, the fish of the day (grilled swordfish with spinach) and the pork chops, really really good. While the desert... More
