Muriel's Jackson Square
Amazing food, fantastic serviceI went in thinking that "classic New Orleans restaurant" was code for "lots of expensive fried oysters" but it was anything but. I took a colleague, customer and prospect to dinner and it was just perfect. The Rite of Spring cocktail was yummy, as was the Duck Breast entree. I would definitely go back.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMTable d'hote May 2013Excellent "Table d'hote" selections that fit my expense account budget and provided a memorable fine dining experience. West end turtle soup was spectacular! I'll be back next time in NOLA!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for foodies. Lots ofGood for foodies. Lots of savory brunch items but missing sweet brunch items. Also missing good brunch sides. Everyone loved the food they got and they accommodated my request happily and without question. Ambiance was fabulous! Service fantastic. Make sure to make a reservation!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulMuriel's was terrific. The food was fantastic - innovative menu - and not overly expensive. Wine was good too and not terribly expensive. A wonderful evening.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAttention to detailFirst, Muriel's is pricey but you get what you pay for. The wait staff wa on point, the food pairings and wine pairing were perfect. We were thoroughly impressed by the staff and their attention to detail. We would recommend and revisit Muriel's to anyone and for special occasions.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent across the board!I'm here in town this week for a conference, and chose Muriel's for a group dinner with my colleagues. By the time dinner was over everyone was complementing my choice. Good (unique) specialty cocktails, turtle soup, duck, and the butterscotch pudding is a must! So good, and the decor and ambiance is great too.
The only slight negative I'd note is that there was some rambunctious party going on upstairs, so occasionally it sounded like a herd of elephants overhead. I'm sure it's not like that normally though.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMvery helpful!We were running about 30 minutes late to our reservation due to crowded parking downtown and they were very accommodating, and were ready for us when we arrived!! A+5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWow, another New Orleans gem!Celebrating a college graduation our family of five had a great time at Muriel's. The food was fantastic and the service even better. We will be back! Thanks5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantGreat food. Service was very good. Somewhat loud but we went on a Saturday night during prime time. We're seated about 10 minutes before reservation time. Everything made for a wonderful experience5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed itWent to celebrate a birthday. Good good. Good service. Nice atmosphere.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe missed the ghostThe food and service were all superb. We found out later about the ghost table and seance room. We wish we had known to check those out.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Night @ Muriel'sMy husband and I chose Muriel's Jackson Square, per a recommendation from our daughter-in-law, to celebrate our 39th Wedding Anniversary. We were both delighted with the atmosphere, the food and the drinks. The service was spot on with polite and attentive waiters who seemed to have perfect timing without being over-bearing. Our final course was Vanilla Bean Creme Brûlée which topped off the perfect evening. We plan to return the next chance we have to visit the wonderful city of New Orleans!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal of the weekNice prefix menu with a good range of options but we opted for the regular menu because the Lamb Chops sounded fantastic (and they were). It was a bit noisy but the tables were comfortably spaced so you did not feel packed in and the wait staff was prompt and attentive, even ensuring they topped off the wine glasses regularly. Wine selection was thorough if not extensive, ranging from moderately priced everyday choices to celebration extremes of $500.00 or more. They did offer selections from multiple regions including French, Italian, and US. Overall a great night and a good value for the money, every course was excellent and the timing was spot on, we did not feel rushed nor we we ever wondering where the next course was.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur 4th time, our traditionalOur 4th time, our traditional last evening's dinner. Very enjoyable as always. We had the double pork chop and the puppy drum with crawfish, crab and pecans. Very nice.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMStunningWe have an amazing dinning experience! The food was absolutely amazing! We are very much looking forward to another visit!!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBest of New OrleansMy husband and I have just returned from our 8th visit to New Orleans. We have enjoyed MANY of the "notable and suggested" restaurants this city has to offer, and yet again, Muriel's served us a meal that "blew them all away." Never, ever, will we visit New Orleans without having dinner at Muriel's, and I suggest it should be on EVERYONE'S Must Attend List. The drinks are great, every appetizer is delicious, and my husband swears by their Pork Chop entree that has always been enough for two meals! Lastly, save room for dessert, as it would be criminal to leave without having their OUTSTANDING bread pudding. It's big enough for two to share, if you seriously are that willing to part with even one forkful. MUST GO TO MURIEL'S!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect place for brunch!We were seated by a window in the front dining room which was elegant. Our table location allowed us to see the activity outside, but was very private inside. Our brunch was absolutely the best! The food was well prepared and was delicious. In addition to the outstanding service and warm hospitality, there were musicians playing New Orleans jazz for entertainment. At the end of the meal women were given a long stemmed red rose for Mother's Day. It was all just perfect.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery accommodating!On a busy Mother's Day weekend they said they would do their best to seat our parties together and they did so very graciously - and gave all the mothers a rose!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers' Day BrunchGreat location near Jackson Square. Brunch was outstanding and service was first-rate.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFrench quarterVery good food, goat cheese apptezer crepe and double pork chop excellent. Service very good, attentive, typical NOLA noise level but that is expected. Nice location. Would recommend and would dine again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMuriel'sGreat New Orleans restaurant with the character one would expect of one in the French Quarter. Super view of St Louis Cathedral and Jackson Square. The ambience sets the mood, the super service and excellent food made for an outstanding experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHauntingly good foodWe spent two full days hitting the food spots that were rated as th best NOLA has to offer. Muriel's was the best dinner we experienced. The pork chops were to die for, and the creme brûlée was one of the best I've ever had. I can't wait to go back and share the experience with my hubby. The upstairs was freaky. We had no idea of the history surrounding the building the restaurant is housed in. I'll be skipping that part next time.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and so was the service. It is not expensive compared to others. Very elegant surroundings. I had the local Red Fish. It was excellent. My wife had the Duck which was also excellent. We went to Muriel's because it was recommended in Trip Advisors. We were not disappointed. This was our 47 anniversary dinner.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely delicious! We hadAbsolutely delicious! We had the 3 course meal: redfish cakes, BBQ shrimp, and chocolate cake! We will definitely return!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasedA very special night out. Great foof and excellent service. Would definately go back!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal we had in New Orleans!We just returned from New Orleans and literally ate and drank our way through the week. We took 4 friends here (2 locals) and all agreed that Muriels was the best meal we had the entire week!! Every dish we ordered was exceptional.. We will return here for sure and we have told many people this was our top pick!! You won't be sorry!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the crawfish crepes!Have been coming to Jazz Fest for many years now and always make sure we have our reservation at Muriel's. Great service and food! Love the crawfish crepes!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food...somewhat dodgy serviceGreat food...stunning actually but the service needs to be addressed as the wait between starter and main course was very poor by anyone's standards. improving service would make this restaurant perfect...5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy sister and I had a wonderfulMy sister and I had a wonderful dining experience at Muriel's Jackson Square. My sister and I LOVED Muriel's Jackson Square. The service, food was superb.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMReasonably priced prix fixe menuEnjoyed the restaurant's decor and ambience; the prix fixe (sp?) menu was very reasonably priced and you can easily get full with the portions they serve. The service was outstanding, the food pretty good - but being from the Bay Area (and I know N.O.'s is known for its cuisine) I still think it could have been a bit tastier.
Overall I enjoyed the meal and the restaurant - without ordering any alcohol we stayed just under $100.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner out in NOLA!This was our first stop for dinner out with friends. We were seated immediately (with a reservation through Open Table!) and we were put in their main dining room. Great view of Jackson Square. We got to see a couple of wedding processions go by. I got the swordfish, which was EXCELLENT. My friend enjoyed her shrimp and grits (a New Orleans standard). Two people at our table got the vegetarian plate and much to my surprise enjoyed it tremendously. They even have separate gluten free options. I got the blueberry cobbler with cream cheese ice cream for dessert - DIVINE! After dinner we walked on to Bourbon St because of this restaurant's location. I would definitely come here again when I am in town.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGroup of 8After a along day at Jazz fest ,we had a large group sat down to a wonderful meal ,service was just ok , maybe the group size had something to do with it . Food was great !5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Bread Pudding EverFour of us dined and had delicious apps and entrees with the exception of the bayoubaisse which wasn't that great. Everything else was pretty great. Do not miss the bread pudding!!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable nightWith guests in town, Muriel's provided a wonderful experience with great New Orleans flair. Food was delicious and there was an excellent gluten free menu a available for one of our guests. Crabmeat and oyster appetisers are terrific.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Lunch Burger in N.O.!The burgers are ground up filet mignon -- OUT OF THIS WORLD!
And the crepes are amazing!
Not a great menu for Sunday brunch, but amazing during the week!!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAs good as ever.Four of us had a wonderful window seat to watch a rainy Sunday night on Jackson Square. We all ordered from the prix fixe menu and there wasn't a single misstep. Our choices included gumbo, turtle soup, salad, puppy drum, bayoubaisse, and chicken. Desserts were bread pudding, butterscotch pudding and chocolate cake. Nothing was left. We also had a reasonably priced chardonnay. Service was friendly and professional.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at the restaurant and weren't sure what to expect. Everything was wonderful - the service was attentive, the food was delicious, and the restaurant itself was beautifully decorated!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVery cool spotHadn't even noticed this spot - perhaps the assumption that anything on the Square won't be great. But glad I trusted OT. The room has this old wood cozy feel. Space between the tables. The wine list had enough gems to find a few for us new world red types. Only gripe - it took until mid - main course for them to finally bring it up... without an apology nor something to compensate for having it nearly end of the meal... even a comp cuppa coffee? Despite that misstep - the prix fixe dinner was spectacular. Rich deep flavors - plenty of spice, depth, texture, colors. Yum. While not the inventive brilliance of Stella - it joins the must go list.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food in a great southernGreat food in a great southern atmosphere- felt like eating in an old southern mansion4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMuriel's is the best of the best!We had the opportunity to eat at several restaurants in New Orleans and Muriel's was the best of the best! It was perfect. Everything was exceptional from the greeting, to the drink server, to the waiter to the food. We could not have been more pleased. This was our first trip to New Orleans and we were not sure what to expect as far as good restaurants were concerned. If you go to Muriel's you will not be disappointed.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat staff, excellent food,Great staff, excellent food, and $4 martini's or bloody's at lunch. Add that to a perfect Jacson Square location and it's a must!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI along with 4 of my associatesI along with 4 of my associates had a great time at Muriel's on Monday evening. The staff was very pleasant and made sure that we had a quality experience throughout our entire evening. The food came out in a timely manner and as always was absolutely phenomenal..4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCocktails took a long timeCocktails took a long time to come out, but other than that, everything was fabulous!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely SettingMuriel's offers great selection in an elegant setting we opted for the fixed-price menu, which included appetizer, entree and dessert. Picturesque setting on Jackson Square.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFrench Quarter Star - Muriel'sMuriels proved to be worthy of the French Quarter. As a recurring visitor to the French Quarter, I am making an effort to try different restaurants and hotels throughout the Vieux Carre. Muriels location is certainly a plus, but add in the fact that it is situated alongside one of the oldest hotels in the quarter and just across the street from the St Louis Cathedral and well, need I say more! Location is everything, and Muriel's is perfect. From there of course it only gets better. The ambience, the service and the quality of food and drink places Muriels easy in the four and half star rating. I would give it five stars except that the dress code is casual but should be business casual.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and service.Outstanding food and service. One of the best overall dining experiences we've had in a long time.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good experience!This is our third visit to this restaurant and each time has been consistently very good.
The prix fixe menu offers excellent value on very good food.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's hard to come here andIt's hard to come here and not have the prix fixe dinner. The double cut pork chop was great. It would have been nice if the gorgonzola prosciutto tart weren't just garnished with 1/4 teaspoon of prosciutto. And the desserts were delicious. Assuming that this is a tourist restaurant, everything was surprisingly good.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Experience!Loved everything about Muriel's! While waitng for the rest of our group to arrive we met Andrea in the bar where we ordered a bottle of wine from her; she was so nice & professional. Once seated, our Wine Steward was Jessica, she was a lot of fun & professional. Our Waiter was Dustin, he was helpful, fun & professional! Loved the gluten-free menu options; everything that our group ordered was beyond delicious, everyone was very happy. I would love the recipe for the smokey cream sauce on one of the tornedos of beef!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodThe ambiance was great. It had a little courtyard within the restaurant next to the bar. It was unique. I had a "honey child" martini and it was very good, not too sweet. The food, well let's just say I was enjoying every bit i ate. I had the gorgonzola prosciutto tart which was an amazing appetizer and for my main meal roasted half chicken(delicious). This is a restaurant we will definitely come back to.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
