We got the three course meal, great presentation of the food. If you feel daring, I recommend trying the goat cheese crépe or the Turtle Soup, they are really good. Also, if you are really hungry, get the pork. It is a real nice serving size. Only get the Oysters if you are not to hungry and just want the... More

I as reluctant to try this place as it seemed to be a tourist spot. Wrong! It is a great local spot that tourists must eat at. The ambience is authentic NOLA and the food is uniquely prepared but pleasant to the palate. This is a must in NOLA.

We asked the concierge at the Ritz Carlton for a recommendation. He gave us three. One we had been to by accident the night before, another was fully booked and we just scraped into a last table at Muriel's. The service was a little slow and they completely forgot us for the main course. Like for any good food in... More

It is difficult to criticise Muriel's. The food and service are fine but you would expect that because it is relatively expensive (particularly the wine). I was slightly disappointed because it is rated quite highly on TripAdvisor. It perhaps demonstrates the quality of the restaurants in New Orleans rather than a problem with the reviews of Muriel's. It certainly isn't... More

We enjoyed pre-dinner drinks on the Terrace watching activities in Jackson Square. Seated at a good table. The Dinner can only be described as excellent. The Shrimp and Goat's Cheese Crepe was delicious as was the Cog au Vin, our friends meals were to the same high standard. Table service could not be faulted and all ones needs were anticipated....

My wife and I had dinner here last night. One word describes our meal: incredible. My lips to God's ear, one of the best meals I've ever had. Ever. We were seated at a window so we're able to watch the quarter begin the transition to its evening pulse. Our servers, Jenny and Gary, took care of our every need... More

The food was just exquisite, especially the goat cheese and shrimp crepes, the baby drum and coq au vin. The service was super-attentive and highly knowledgeable, and the ambience relaxing. A perfect night out.

Loved the personable, and knowledgable server! Food was New Orleans excellent. Had a direct view to the resident ghost's table. Nothing finer for our visit to Jackson Square and the French Quarter.

Head to the haunted restaurant for drinks. We stopped in and hung out at the bar, and the creative drinks were great! Try the Pumpkin Barrel!

We had a marvelous brunch and the another great dinner. The menu is varied and every choice is good. The service is excellent. There is a lot of noise, though. I will return!

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.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
