My husband and I ate here in early Dec 2014. It came highly recommended by several locals. . We were delighted. Both meals were wonderful (one had yellow fin tuna). Excellent service. Busy but not loud and noisy. Elegant but comfortable. All our food experiences in NOLA were good, but Muriels was the best!!! (Irene's---higher rated on tripadvisor---was equally good... More

Dined there on a Wednesday night and had to wait a short time for a table. The bar martini was awesome. The steak Tourendos were perfectly cooked and the accompanying chimichuri sauce was off the hook good. Really worth going. It would've been nice to have a side salad but it came with a piece of shrimp toast. My only... More

Shortly afterwards we were told our table was available and were shown to our seats by pleasant wait staff. Our water brought menus and told... More

We think Muriel's is absolutely fabulous. From the moment we were greeted everything was flawless. We loved the appointments in the dining room. The seafood gumbo was delicious. I had the stuffed mirliton. Now the mirliton does not have a bold flavor on it's own, but when filled with a seafood stuffing, and served over a creole roasted tomato sauce,... More

Hubby and I decided on Muriels for dinner our last night and it did not disappoint. I enjoyed the shrimp and goat cheese crepes (my husband just thought they were ok). The pork chops were AMAZING! !!! tender and flavorful. My hubby had the shrimp and grits, which he enjoyed. Service was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Tried Murial's for the first time. An assortment of different style rooms makes for a very interest and enjoyable atmosphere. Menu is lovely and not overly large. Decided on the prix fixe menu for a very reasonable charge. The best pork chops I've ever eaten and great drum for the husband. Crepes and gorgonzola appetizer was incredible. Bread pudding, flourless... More

My husband and I were in NOLA in Jan 2014 and now in December we brought my mom. In January, we visited Muriel's for their Sunday Jazz Brunch and had a wonderful experience. Food/service/music were spot on. We sat on the balcony for a while to people watch. We also visited the Séance room. For our December visit, we ate... More
