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!

Tables near us were way too loud we couldn’t have a conversation. The waiters were not attentive and it took incredibly long for drink refills. We have been here a few times and this was the worst experience we have had. Probably won’t be back.

For an up scale dining establishment, disappointed with the extremely casual dress code allowed. Service was only OK, i.e. I had to ask for a fork twice; my wife's wine was delivered almost at the end of her meal (and the restaurant was not too busy). Food was very good

Food was pretty good overall. Service was great; water was constantly refilled, waiters were attentive, and they offered good wine pairings. The ambiance is good; muted lights, warm red walls in the room we were in, interesting decor. Food, however, was hit or miss. Shrimp and grits, crawfish crepes, salad, and redfish were really good. Their take on fried green tomatoes was ok. Scallops w/risotto were served lukewarm/cool which wasn't appetizing. Bread pudding left much to be desired. Overall, 4 stars.

Service was very slow and indifferent. Kitchen must have had a rough night as many orders were delayed. Food was excellent when it arrived. Even the crawfish and goat cheese crepes. Which arrived only slightly warm. I would go back but not very soon. They were really struggling and it was only a Tuesday night!

Great buzzy atmosphere in pleasant surroundings. Food good but over salty.A little overpriced for the standard of food and service.Bill slammed on table before we were even asked if we wanted a coffee-so didn’t bother!

The food was ok. The sauce on the drum dish was sweet. Which on fish is not great. The sweet potatoes were just sweet potatoes with nothing added. The service was aloof and non attentive. It was definitely hurry up give us your $ and get out type of experience. The check was dropped off with dessert. We got the hint and we won’t be back.

A perfect Sunday Jazz Brunch for a rainy day and in New Orleans. The setting was lovely, southern eclectic with a touch regal. The service was outstanding, we had two servers and there seemed to be many people making sure we were happy and well fed yet no one hovered.

The food was so savory and beautifully served. More than ample portions. We got the prix fixed as we considered this our meal for the day. The soups were delicious, flavorful and served with class. I had the tomato and crab soup with a touch of Crete fresh. My daughter got the shrimp gumbo. The oyster and egg breakfast with hollandaise sauce. The white chocolate bread pudding with caramel sauce was heavenly. Surprisingly not too sweet.

The jazz trio was excellent. They moved from room to room with 20 minute sets, enjoyable and also allowed talking time.

I highly recommend.

We made reservations on line on the same day we ate there. The service was prompt and professional. We don’t like our wait staff to hover and we never felt that they did, but they were quick to keep our glasses filled and our tableware removed promptly. The food was expertly prepared and absolutely delicious.

I loved this place. Great menu and excellent drinks and desserts. We ate in the red room and it wa very loud which is why I have given 4s in a couple areas. We could barely hear each other talk. And it was also too cold. Other than that, it’s a phenomenal restaurant with great food. I had a lovely beet salad and vegetable curry. So good! My friend had the fried green tomatos and the gumbo. She liked it a lot. I’d go back for sure.

They did run out of one dessert we ordered. We enjoyed showing the upstairs rooms to a guest. The food was coked as we ordered it with some special instructions. The only problem was the limited choices for someone allergic to shellfish.

One of my favorite restaurants in New Orleans! The location is amazing, just adjacent to St. Louis Cathedral. The building and ambience are first class. The service is attentive, but not stuffy, and the food quality is excellent. Presentations are fairly simple, but beautiful. Overall, a lovely dining experience!
