The Séance Lounge is the place for a relaxed, comfortable meeting before or after dining. Comprised of two areas, The Outer & The Inner Séance, the Séance also tells the story of a mystic & checkered past. The Outer Séance addresses the New Orleans era of Storyville & when Muriel's Jackson Square was one of the French Quarter's best bordellos! 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.

“Mini-Moon Romantic Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I were gifted a wonderful weekend in New Orleans for a mini-vacation that included dinner at Muriel's. It truly is a New Orleans landmark. Historic atmosphere and delicious food. I definitely recommend eating here if you're wanting to get dressed up and have a classy evening :) We've had better food and better experiences in NOLA but for a mini-honeymoon/romantic getaway this was truly the best place to eat. Something everyone should do at least once in NOLA!

“Amazing Indoor Courtyard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We ate at the indoor courtyard which is unique. The staff was friendly and the service great. We enjoyed the food...especially the appetizers. We always bring our out of town guests there for a true felling for New Orleans.

“Expected better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Since Muriel's has received such glowing reviews was expecting so much more. Beginning with the bar tender. When ask what drink he was mixing, he had to look at the menu, he had no idea what he was making. Our server appeared distracted and perhaps overwhelmed although dinning room not overly busy. Indifferent, impersonal, uninformed service through entire meal. No explanation of the menu was offered although two dinning style options available.
Dishes quickly and sloppily placed on the table. The server actually drug my husbands soup bowl across his shirt as she removed it from the table. Food average quality and creativity, barely warm on arrival to the table.

“A Big Easy landmark to eat for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I wanted to take my wife to Muriel's on the first night of a long-weekend pleasure trip to the Big Easy. The greeters were pleasant in welcoming us to the restaurant overlooking historic Jackson Square. Our server took great care in taking our orders and bringing out our drinks, appetizers, entrees and dessert in a timely manner. The wine was cool enough, the food was warm enough and everything was flavorful and tasty. Muriel's wasn't crowded on this Thursday night, so we had lots of attention. My wife's double pork chops was cooked to perfection and my seafood entree was loaded with shrimp, fish and vegetables. Topping the evening: a great bread pudding with a pecan crust topping!
