My visit to Muriel's was as part of a private party. About two dozen of us met upstairs in the rear salon for cocktails. We then moved into a large, private dining area; later moving out onto the balcony between courses.
The food was pretty darn good. I have no idea what it cost, but I enjoyed it. The only average dish, I felt, was the seafood gumbo. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best I've ever had. The irony: two life-long New Orleanians said it was fantastic. However, the rest of my food was very good.
While a different setting than the main dining room, I felt the service was acceptable. We did not get any attitude, but it also wasn't as attentive as I've experienced with private parties in other venues.
You cannot escape the beauty of the building. And the view from the balcony gives you a postcard memory of a charming part of the French Quarter.
