We were looking for a nice place in the French quarter to enjoy some local cuisine and something more traditional. In a fantastic surrounding we had an excellent diner. I had the 3 course meal with turtle soup, shrimp on grit and crepe brûlée. The girls had duck and tuna. All delicious, cooked as asked. The service was excellent. Truly... More

A beautiful restaurant with beautiful food. An amazing experience from start to finish. I was starting to look like a Po' boy until I found Muriel's. Great N'Awlins cooking and hospitality with views over Jackson Square. An absolute must.

We spent our first dinner in Nola at Muriels and were so glad we did. It is right on the edge of Jackson Square--a great location. Inside is an upscale restaurant but they will let people in with shorts or jeans. We dressed up a bit more because it was so nice. The food was delicious! Drinks were great! Thanks... More

This is a classic and a must see place for Dinner. The food impeccably prepared and the service was well timed. They have a wonderfully affordable prix-fixe menu-- that includes dessert. The food was well prepared visually appealing and tasty. Make reservations for a good table and come hungry.

Muriel's was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. I couldn't wait to get back and thank her. This is a don't miss restaurant in the Big Easy. We lucked out and found ourselves in town for Coolinary, kind of like restaurant week, but for a full month. I must begin with the fact that I don't eat anything that... More

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.

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.
