By far the best food we had on our trip! The turtle soup is outstanding, a must try. The service was what really made our night stand out. I believe our servers name was Gary, he was so warm and welcoming. He was training a blonde Ukrainian woman who for the life of me I can't think of her name,... More

The ambiance of Muriel's is unique and welcoming. From entryway to the clock wall in the dining room, Muriel's is one of kind. Enjoyed the window seat which allowed a spectator view of the street as we had dinner.

Very good food, fabulous wine list. A must in New Orleans. Even if I am not a fan of the French Quarter, I loved this place. Get a table by the window, it's worth the view of bypassers.

I loved the decor! It feels like traveling back in time. The food was good but the ambiance is what makes the visit. I truly enjoyed it. Great location also.

I started with the Turtle Soup Au Sherry. The main course was Blackened Faroe Islands Salmon w/corn and field pea succotash and topped with sautéed jumbo crab meat. Finished with the Pain... More

Elegant yet casual restaurant at Jackson Square. Outstanding service and truly delicious food. We had the wood grilled tuna of the day. Prepared rare, exactly as we had asked for. One of the best tunas that we have ever had. Impressive wine list. Really good house wines from South Africa. We have two more evenings in New Orleans and one... More

Have been several times and never disappointed. Went for Sunday Jazz Brunch and delightful. Must get their recipe for the bread as they brought each table a loaf. Eggs Sordeau with oysters was fabulous. Great service, atmosphere and reasonably priced.

It is an excellent restaurant: food is delicious, service is very well done with the waiters very kind. We took the shrimp creole and the pecan encrusted baby drum: perfectly done! Delicious! Unforgettable! We will come again to the Sunday jazz brunch!

On our annual Mardi Gras staycation, we book at least 2 brunches and 2 dinners at Muriel's. They have the most professional wait teams in New Orleans. Consider asking them for their recommendations. I have hosted dinner parties for international guests in their private rooms that drew raves from people from all over the world. Good value, excellent food, a... More

I absolutely LOVE Muriel's! The atmosphere is wonderful & the staff exceptional. I love that there are so many different nooks & crannies to explore in the building, and the balcony is lovely for people watching. The food, delicious...the drinks, potent! Make sure to check out the Seance Room, maybe you'll see the ghost of Mr. Jourdan!

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.
