This restaurant was absolutely just terrible I will never be back. Spent a total of 2 seconds with each server that was assigned to us. The food was even worse. Bland and cold. The pork chop was gritty and under cooked. Tasted like cold dirt....The big baboon of a manager at the front was no help either. I think his name was Tony. He was completely dismissive and wouldn't listen to a word I said, absolutely unacceptable. Not how you run a business, much less one in the customer service business. Will never be back and will be letting everyone I know not to go to this restaurant while visiting New Orleans.More

The staff is 100% on their game here. We let them know right at the beginning that we were on a bit of a schedule due to a booked tour and that we only had an hour. They stepped it up and had us fed...and out of there in less than 30 minutes, without compromising the quality of the food. And the food was absolutely perfect. Every bite was a "yessssssss!!!!" reaction from both my wife and I. Heads up though, the building is on a few of the haunted tours stopping points lol. Some dark stuff happened in that building back in the day (nothing recent).More

We were strolling in Jackson Square and I saw this beautiful building with people eating on the balcony. I wanted to sit in the sun and eat on the balcony with wrought iron railings so we gave it a try. As we walked through the...restaurant I was impressed with the beautiful classic decor. I asked the man who showed me to the table how long had he worked there. He was one of the owners. Such a great touch that he personally greeted patrons. The food was excellent. I had the goat cheese stuffed crepes and gumbo. My companion had a Boursin and wild mushroom omelet. I would highly recommend this place!More

Our best meal in New Orleans. We ate on the balcony with a 5:00 pm reservation. We had the 3 course special. Everything was delicious.

Excellent service, food, drinks and ambiance. The waiters were personable. They had pretty dividers between tables to be compliant for social distancing. Everyone wore masks as well.

We had an 8 pm reservation for a larger family group of 10. From the first phone call the service was exceptional and when we arrived, we had exceptional dining here. They were not very busy - but were very careful and worked with the...covid restrictions upon restaurants these days because of Covid. Exceptional in every way this time - enjoyed the quieter Muriels and the service we got and the food was amazing. Goat cheese crepe was an amazing appetizer.More

We were treated like Al ist guests! All of our requested were happily met. We loved the experience from start to finish. Anthoney is the guy you want for your waiter. He is super as was Jason. Great guys-very friendly-they know everything and they are...interested in YOU. Shrimp and Grits...Heavenly and then some. It was so good it you told me it had spiders and bat blood in it, I'd eat it again. Good stuff. This is a beautiful place, the people working here seem so happy and as if they like being a part of this place. We made a reservation and had to change it and they were so cool about it. Thanks for making our dinner wonderful. The Cream Bul le was wonderful too as was the bread pudding and the salads. It was a great evening that we won't forget. Thanks, Anthony for the grand tour and all the friendly conversation!More

I rarely ever post a review but if you are looking for a great restaurant in town it is Muriel's. I like to be experimental with my meals but this particular Saturday, 11/14 morning\afternoon wanted a true brunch experience. Thanks to both and I mean...both our servers Samantha and Ryan delivered amazing combination duo service beyond anything I had ever experienced. Their knowledge of the menu options and recommendations on the food choices are having my mouth water at the very thought as I am typing this review. Ryan recommended the roasted chicken and it was AMAZING! My two besties and I started it off with the Eggs Veney as an appetizer and shared it until there was nothing on the plate, it paired wonderful with a Cinnamon margarita but the star of the show was the delicious plump shrimp that tasted fresh out of the water with the creamiest grits I had ever tasted in my life. Then after all that we washed them down with great mimosas and topped it off with a bread pudding which made me want to slap someone's Mama. Muriel you truly delivered an amazing experience!More

We've been New Orleans many times and walked by Muriels a dozen times. On our latest visit we decided to have dinner there. WOW, what a great place. It is surprisingly beautiful inside, especially the upper floors. Make sure you ask for a tour including...the seance room. The food was great as was the service. This is now a must visit for all of our subsequent trips to New Orleans.More

It’s a fine dining restaurant and I’m sure they can accommodate. I’d advise your friend to be very cautious eating anywhere in Louisiana as cream, butter, rich sauces and spices are extremely common on most of our food. I... More
