The Bistro at Muriel’s Jackson Square offers New Orleans classics like Gumbo, BBQ Shrimp, Oysters "Muriel", Turtle soup, Fried Gulf Shrimp Po-boy, Crabmeat Imperial, Shrimp Remoulade & contemporary Creole cuisine like Pecan Crusted Drum & Wood Grilled Tuna while the Courtyard Bar is the perfect place to drop by for drinks & appetizers. The Séance Lounge is the place for a relaxed, comfortable meeting before or after dining. Comprised of two areas, The Outer & The Inner Séance, the Séance also tells the story of a mystic & checkered past. The Outer Séance addresses the New Orleans era of Storyville & when Muriel's Jackson Square was one of the French Quarter's best bordellos! The Inner Séance is the preferred domain of the resident ghost, Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan, & is the perfect spot for an intimate conversation & a drink amongst its plush surroundings.

A very nice lunch at Muriel's on the Fourth of July

We ate a slighlty later lunch to get in on the 4th of July. We were dressed in business casual. No tie or jacket but a nice collared shirt though short sleeved and khaki slacks for my husband. A nice crepe two piece set for me with slacks. We were seated in one of the front rooms. We had one... read more

Staff was on the ball and extremely attentive. Eggs Benedict were ridiculously overpriced for quantity and quality. The english muffin was more like a soda cracker (thin and hard) and the ham almost seemed like cold-cut quality. The pork chop on the other had was excellent and almost too much to eat. The red velvet ice cream desert is out... More

Had an amazing dinner with my friends. When we got there our table wasn't ready so we were encouraged to take a tour of the upstairs area while we waited. We had a small spiritual experience in one of the rooms, which we were warned about. The place is beautiful and the food was absolutely delicious, I highly recommend the... More

So I went to Muriel's for a last minute lunch and wow, what a surprise! I thought it was the best place I ate in the 4 days I visited New Orleans, even after scouring TripAdvisor restaurant reviews and Open Table. Best seafood gumbo and shrimp risotto I've ever had (and I'm a big foodie!). Terrific service, wonderful atmosphere, and... More

My wife and I attempted to have lunch at Muriel's on a hot, summer day (July 3); however, we elected to leave given the shabby treatment we received. I have long and close ties to New Orleans, having gone to college there as well as having visited relatives every year, so I am familiar with some of the unique cultural... More

Made a lunch reservation at Muriel's Jackson Square for me and my wife and I am glad I did. The lunch we had was one of the best we have experienced so far during our visit. Our table was near a window and once we were seated we were offered great service by the waiting staff who helped us with... More

I'd recommend Muriel's. Definitely one of the best restaurants in the FQ. Reservations are strongly advised. The meal quality was very good. Speed and service could have been better. I'd still return to Muriel's to give it another shot to rate up to Excellent.

This place was amazing. When I made the reservation I let them know it was our anniversary and asked if possible to be given a view. We were seated immediately upon arrival in the red room, extremely beautiful and elegant, by the window. They brought us complimentary champagne and congratulated us on our day. Very thoughtful. The wait staff is... More

Celebrated my sister's 50th Birthday. The restaurant was very accommodating and allowed us to bring our own dessert. Food was fabulous (the shrimp and eggplant stuffing is a must try) and service was wonderful. Highly recommend.
