The Bistro at Muriel’s Jackson Square offers New Orleans classics like Gumbo, BBQ Shrimp, Oysters "Muriel", Turtle soup, Fried Gulf Shrimp Po-boy, Crabmeat Imperial, Shrimp Remoulade & contemporary Creole cuisine like Pecan Crusted Drum & Wood Grilled Tuna while the Courtyard Bar is the perfect place to drop by for drinks & appetizers. 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.

When you go to a restaurant that is in a high traffic, popular location (Jackson Square) and has its own interesting story (ghost of original owner), you brace yourself for a great location but sub-par food. Muriel's was far from that, in a very good way. We had a reservation and scoped out the restaurant beforehand, realizing that we would like to sit in the Courtyard when we arrived later for our dinner reservation. When we were sat on the Courtyard, it was in an odd, high traffic location, so we requested a table in the dining room. For our party of 5, they immediately accommodated our request and put us at a beautiful corner table along the window. We had two servers - very pleasant, fun and kind gentlemen. Two of us opted for the prix fixe menu while the others did a la carte. The pecan crusted drum was one of the best fish dishes I have had in my life, and the pain perdue (bread pudding) was also to die for. The gumbo (the starter) was clearly homemade but lacked in flavor - that would be my ONLY criticism of the food. Otherwise, what a great experience, and I was also able to visit the seance room and the private dining table of the on-site ghost :)

Always a must stop when we visit New Orleans. The blue cheese "pie" appetizer is a must. I asked for a quiet table and was given the perfect spot. Nice bar. Good food. Not overly noisey

I live in East Texas, 6 1/2 hours away, and I have eaten here on several occasions. This trip I brought my family to include my Sister and Niece. They do not like seafood, but ordered the Pecan crusted redfish. They were overwhelmed with the taste and quality.( Fantastic). On our way back home we had driven to Shreveport and my wife stated "OMG Muriel's has the best fish, I am going to miss this place"
Muriel's is the best food you will have in New Orleans. This is our go to place every time we visit the City.

I love the food at Muriel’s. They have the best shrimp Creole in the French Quarter. Service is alway warm and friendly Server Tiffany and her assistant Luis made my lunch special. Wonderful historic atmosphere. A New Orleans spot not to be missed for either lunch, dinner or drinks and light fair in bar area.

We were spending a long weekend in NOLA and tried this based on reviews. We were disappointed in the 2 fish dishes ordered at our table with both the drum and salmon being very very dry. The bread was tasteless. However the double pork chop and shrimp and grits were very good. It’s a lovely place with good service but not great food across the board

The service was probably the best I have ever had anywhere. The food was phenomenal. I had turtle soup, pecan encrusted baby drum, and bread pudding. My wife had soup, shrimp and grits, and creme brûlée. All of these were great. We each had 2 cocktails. None of those were spectacular, but all were decent. We will definitely go back next time we’re in NOLA.

Went to Muriels with 4 friends for restaurant week as I'm here from NY for a convention. The meal was spectacular! Even the warm bread to start was amazing! I would highly recommend the shrimp and grits and my friends said the salmon and pork chop were equally delectable.And the bread pudding with the rum sauce was out of the world good! The staff were so friendly, curteous and very effieicient. The ambiance was very authentic to the area. I loved how it was an old converted house! I would recommend without hesitation and will come back next time I am in town.

Muriel’s was absolutely perfect! The location, the ambiance, the service, and of course the food! Everyone in our party did the three course dinner option and were blown away with each plate. We will return to Muriel’s the next time we’re in New Orleans for sure.

The set menu for restaurant week was like eating in a pub. Thought it would be more interesting. Appetiser of pancakes and shrimp was delicious. Drinks weren’t cheap so limited ourselves to one.

Wonderful food and service. RJ and Ryan were two of the best servers I’ve ever had. They treated my mom and I great and even spent extra time taking us upstairs and telling us a bit of the restaurants history which was the main reason we came. I’ve been to a wedding at Muriel’s and now a regular dinner. I don’t think I will ever be able to go back to New Orleans without making a stop at Muriel’s. Easily one of the best places.

Really not as good as last times we were there. Turtle soup not particularly good, where previously thought best in city. Didn't like boudin balls at all, pork chop way too salty. Serine excellent.

Loved the food and the service. The only thing which fell short was the Margarita, but I’m not in Los Angeles and I guess few people drink them here. It like it was made with lime cordial and I downed it in one hoping the tequila would help me forget the taste. Maybe the barman took a break as it was middle afternoon. I’ll try one next time I come and ask if I can watch it be made - instruct if necessary.

The best food in New Orleans thus far. The food was amazing. I even enjoyed the oysters which I rarely like or eat. Everything was portioned perfectly and nothing was overly salted and cooked perfectly.
