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.

“Beautiful Restaurant, Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

The restaurant was lovely and the food was pretty good, but I felt that for the price it didn't live up to expectations. The creme brûlée was the best part of the meal. I wouldn't return.

“Upscale, pleasant dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2015 NEW

Not fully formal but definitely not a casual restaurant. It is more classically southern cuisine but with a twist. Not laden with jambalaya, etc but it uses local ingredients and it is rich food. Our service was very pleasant and the cost was less than we thought for a nice dining experience. Try the crawfish and goat cheese crepes.

“Wonderful Dinner in NOLA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

Beautiful restaurant in a great location. I had the prix fix menu including crawfish crepes, glazed pork chop with sweet potatoes and greens, and the flourless chocolate cake. Everything was delicious and great value. Service was also top notch. Good choice for an authentic Southern meal.

“Underwhelming jumbalaya”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

Two tiny slices of sausage, cool food, there was a lot of chicken and quite bland dish. Fortunately I had better the next day elsewhere. I would not return here--they bank on location rather than quality of food and service, which was slow and they were not that busy.

“TRIP ADVISOR!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

Weather is looking bad and we are HUNGRY. I throw open the Trip Advisor App on my phone and look for restaurants nearby. Muriel's is a top rated Restaurant. We go in and had a fabulous afternoon with the family! Great Service, Great Food! We spent some time exploring the restaurant, its haunted and has a unique setting area upstairs. We would will return!
