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.

“great view”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We went to Muriel's to sit on the veranda for a drink. We told the staff that as we arrived and they were most accommodating. We got drinks at the bar and walked past the ghost's table, upstairs, and onto the porch overlooking Jackson Square. It was a wonderful respite. The staff is nice, the drinks well mixed and, we've heard Muriel's has excellent food, too. We'll return to stay longer. We didn't see the ghost, but it was mid-afternoon.

“We've dined at Muriel's several times and have never been disappointed. Chef Gus produces excellent meals.”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We enjoyed going upstairs to see the 'Seance Room,' taking pictures and going out onto the balcony to look out over Jackson Square.

“Superb Food and Service”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

My friends and I went there to celebrate my birthday. We had reservations so were taken right in. There were 2 servers assigned to us so we received excellent service. Everyone enjoyed their food and we had all chosen something differen. We chose the pre-fixe menu, which was a very good value. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“We always recommend Muriel's to visitors”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We always tell visiting friends to forget Galatoire's and go to Muriel's. It is fun, the food is great and it has true New Orleans ambiance. You'll find patrons dressed from casual business to dressy and occasionally tourist casual. You will be treated well and you'll love the food which is reasonably priced for a white linen restaurant with such a superb location: right off Jackson Square at the corner by the cathedral. And for added lagniappe, the place is haunted! Yep, there is a resident ghost known to snatch items from under your nose if you are not watchful! If you are seated in the main dining room, ask your wait staff about the portraits hanging there. The bar area is lively and really attractive so if you have to wait a bit for a table, you will enjoy the time. If you need to park, you can usually find space in the large lots on Chartres heading towards Canal. These lots get commandeered during major events, though, so be forewarned.
