Their lunch was good and priced well. They handled our family of 8 and even catered to our one year old. All the food was delicious with the exception of my pork chop. It wasn't bad, but cooked a little too much.

We didn't know that if you wanted, you could eat at the haunted table for an extra $50! That would've been totally worth it for me. Loved taking my glass of wine after dinner to explore the seance room upstairs. Great place, great stories; would do it again.

Muriel's is a quiet oasis in the midst of the hubbub of Jackson Square. My wife and I enjoyed lunch there, and it was cool, quiet, and delicious. The service was superb. They did charge me for my second Arnold Palmer. I guess that's a regional thing.

What a lovely outing at Muriel's serving many of New Orleans favorite dishes! I can't resist a cup of gumbo and any one of the salads will delight you. We enjoyed this favorite eatery once again when out of town visitors recently joined us. Of course we tasted each other's selections and ended with the not to be missed pain... More

My wife and I celebrated our first anniversary with a visit to New Orleans and wanted a quiet place for a romantic dinner. After reading several reviews, this place seemed to check all the right boxes. We were in no way disappointed! The cuisine was wonderful from the bread and turtle soup to the seafood. The suggested cocktails were perfectly... More

We went here for Sunday brunch. Everything was excellent. The service was impeccable. I had the petite filet with shrimp and my S. O. had the pork chop. And of course, we both had Bloody Marys. It was all excellent and the building is absolutely beautiful. Be sure and ask to see the ghost's table and go upstairs if you... More

We sampled many of the highly recommended restaurants in New Orleans and found this place did the best food. We both ate from the 3 course taster menu. Which is quite reasonable for $40. The Pork chop and the shrimp and grits were simply amazing. The only negatives we found was the atmosphere was very quiet but then again it... More

We had brunch here on our last day in New Orleans. I had a crepe which was absolutely delicious. The service was also very good and very friendly and the decor and surroundings were very traditional. A beautiful building to enjoy a lovely meal.

Very disappointed. Only could go to the first two levels. Not many things as there was a few years ago. Not good to go with children.

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.
