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.

Muriel's Delight

Went to Nawlins for Mother's Day weekend. Happened upon Muriel's quite by accident. The food was divine. I am not a beer drinker, but one of the micro beers was so good. The flavor of the food was as good as it gets. My son had never been to the Big Easy and he loved every morsel. He said... read more

Great decor and atmosphere and offers old style elegant hospitality. We dined with a group of 8 business colleagues this week, and found the service welcoming and charming, and the menu included a number of local delights. Everyone enjoyed their meals and dining experience, and we had a wonderful evening. Would highly recommend.

Just dropped in and were lucky enough to get a table. The food was amazingly good - French with a hint of Creole. Best fish we had all trip. Our waitress was young, really pretty, funny and had the most beautiful accent. We had far to many cocktails - just to hear her say "Honey Child", If we lived in... More

First time I actually had a chance to try the food. My husband wanted to try turtle soup and Muriels was recommended to go. The soup was good. First time having turtle soup for both of us. We had had bread pudding for dessert. Suffice it to say that we did not leave hungry and would like to return.

Try their wonderful lunch Monday- Saturday (less costly) and find out the history of this "haunted" house. Very classy & elegant.

My wife had been here before when on a business trip and throughly enjoyed it. Situated in the heart of the Frech Quarter I too found it a charming with a nice atmosphere.

Good food, classic atmosphere. Can't beat the location and you get a real feel for being in New Orleans. Good place to go if you only have a day or two in New Orleans.

As a native New Orleanian I am used to a higher level of service and culinary quality when dine at one of the city's upper end restaurants. I hadn't yet eaten at Muriels but thought it would be a good one to try with out of town guests who would be enthralled by the ghost story and enjoy a view... More
