8 of us went for dinner on our last night in New Orleans. Muriel's is an amazing experience every time I'm there. I love how the different seating areas are somehow different vibes but still the same homey feeling. The service was fantastic, the food...was incredible, and the drinks were delicious. We had an amazing time as always and we will be back!More

We arrived early for our 5:30 reservation and the staff had no issue seating us. The waiter was attentive and the food was good. My wife really enjoyed her Shrimp & Grits. The bread tasty and the bread pudding was good (believe it had candy...pecan topping). The restaurant was clean and had a great story to it. We would recommend this restaurant.More

We began our evening at Muriel's with a wonderful pre-dinner cocktail at the bar and then proceeded into one of the many dining areas for dinner. The restaurant itself is lovely, a historic building with period décor. The meal was excellent as was the wait...staff and everyone else we met that worked there. We each chose to order from the three course menu. For appetizers we chose the gumbo and the onion tart. We both had the pecan encrusted drum for an entrée and for dessert the bread pudding and crème brule. We couldn't have been happier with our choices. Everything was excellently prepared and beautifully presented.More

We ate on our last night in New Orleans and from the Coolinary menu. Loved all the food and the flexibility with this menu. Drinks were also great, as was service and the restaurant is beautiful. Really couldn't fault it in any way. We also...called earlier for a happy hour drink and sat up on the balcony which is lovely. Be sure to check out the ghost's table by the stairs and seance rooms upstairs!More

The restaurant is quite large with multiple dining rooms and is very popular and a bit loud. Reservations are definitely recommended. My wife and I visited during the recent Coolinary promotion and had a very good experience. Service was prompt and helpful. Typical New Orleans...professionals. My wife started with the wedge salad and I had the onion tart which was just excellent, much better than I was expecting. For our second course I had the pecan crusted puppy drum fish and my wife ordered the roasted half chicken. My meal was ok, but my wife out ordered me this time. The chicken was house brined and accompanied with buttermilk mashed potatoes, sauteed kale and bacon and a Steen's cane syrup glaze. Absolutely delicious. We shared the creme brulee desert and boxed the bread pudding to take home. Both were very good versions of these classic deserts.More

Muriel’s serves outstanding cuisine in an upscale setting without snobbish airs. We were delighted with the unique venue overall. Although the building is obviously historic, everything is immaculately clean and beautifully restored. Staff invited us to view the upstairs balcony (great photo op!) and explore...a seance room. If we were locals, I would return here regularly. Our wee one was happy with the children’s menu. This dining experience definitely elevated our NOLA experience.More

Everything was absolutely incredible. The customer service was top notch. An art that is so rarely seen now. We were made to feel so welcome by the entire wait staff. The food was amazing! Goat cheese crepes, pecan drum, gumbo and bread pudding. Wow! Thank...you to everyone at Muriel’s for making our dinner such a delightful event for everyone in our family. We can’t wait to go back!More

After reading all the positive reviews, we had high expectations for our diner at Muriel's. The food is tasty, no remarks on that. But the waiter's are clearly hard sales people. We do not drink wine and as soon as it became clear we would...not be big spenders the attention dropped below par - a shame. The overall decoration also lacks coziness.More

We had a great dinner at Muriel's. I had the shrimp crepes and my teen grandson the half chicken. The sauces on both were delicious and the vegetable and presentation good. Our waitress Choloe was professional in all respects. The restaurant's covid acrilic barriers between...tables painted with scenes enhanced the French decor as well as giving a feeling of privacy. After reading the restaurant's history on the menu, we were invited to go up the stairs to go on the balcony overlooking Jackson Square and to see the other rooms including one set-up for the resident ghost. All in all it was a delighful evening.More

I had the boudin egg roll, the shrimp and rice balls, and the shaved brussels sprout salad. Each was delicious. The wines on offer were excellent and made for fine pairings with the food. I finished with the chocolate dessert and the muscat - again...a fine pairing. The service was ideal - attentive without being obtrusive. Chad brought the food and was all you could wish for in a waiter - discreetly attentive but no more. All in all, the best meal I have eaten in New Orleans, and worth every penny.More
