We did not reserve for dinner and were pleasantly surprised that we could be accommodated as a walk-in. Nevertheless I think it no coincidence that we were situated in the kind of conservatory area with all the other diners not formally dressed for dinner! What is it about bread and mid range restaurants? If I ask for bread I don't... More

It was a good Bloody Mary - but then it was followed by great food. I had the soup of the day - sweet potato and andouille sausage - it was AMAZING! Then I had the goat cheese and shrimp crepes - another fantastic choice. We were pleased with our service - and had a wonderful time. I recommend a... More

This restaurant had such cool decor, in an old New Orleans home and felt like sitting in an old family dining room. The food was excellent and service was great. It's out of the way (a few blocks from the insanity) so you can walk from most French Quarter hotels. It's a bit pricy, but worth it. I heard the... More

My sister and husband and I dined at Muriel's right off of Jackson Square. This is a gem of a restaurant with wonderful food and great service. The food was prepared fresh and was absolutely delicious. Desserts were amazing. Can't wait to return!

Great bar to start the night off at - grabbed a seat at the bar to chat with the bartenders and drink some local beers and absolutely delicious specialty cocktails.

We made reservations ahead of time knowing that it is difficult to get in without! Glad we did. I loved the ambiance, service , food, everything. Dress code- while I prefer to see everyone dressed a bit nicer for a restaurant like this, there was quite a diverse bunch of patrons wearing everything from sports jackets and heels to baseball...

Had a bad experience (well not great) years ago, but went back with co-worker. Sat at the bar and had a very good meal with great service from Leda the bartender. A little pricy, but given the location that is kind of expected. Would definitely recommend sitting at the bar if just one or two. Downside is no windows in... More

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.
