The Bistro at Muriel’s Jackson Square offers contemporary Creole cuisine with New Orleans classics like Seafood Gumbo, Turtle soup, Shrimp & Grits and Wood Grilled Pork Chop while the Courtyard Bar is the perfect place to drop by for drinks and appetizers. The Séance Lounge is the place for a relaxed, comfortable meeting before or after dining. Comprised of two areas, The Outer Seance and 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 top bordellos! The Inner Séance is the preferred domain of the resident ghost, Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan; it's the perfect spot for an intimate conversation or a drink among its plush surroundings. The 170 foot wrap-around balcony is a splendid spot for enjoying our specialty cocktails or our extensive wine list featuring over 300 selections from around the world.

    We selected this restaurant as we saw it highlighted in Saveur magazine. The food was very good, the atmosphere was lovely and the noise level was to be expected for NOLA. We came the week AFTER Mardi Gras. The wait staff did not have any rhythm. Non-water drinks came late, if at all and we had to ask for our bread even though they talked it up. There was limited to no checking on our meal, even to see if we needed water(which we did). It appeared that the main server was more interested in working with a table of 5-6 men at another table than our 3M +1W 4 top.

    The dining room was loud since the area we were in had no dividers, and we were seated by two loud patrons. That aside it was the best food we had in the three days we were in town. Highly recommend.

    The authentic NOLA decor sets the stage for scrumptious dining. The creole sauce in the shrimp goat cheese crepes warrants more of the garlic focaccia bread for dipping—don’t miss a drop. Pecan crusted drum fish was superb atop a bed of spincach and crushed pecans, and oh the sauce! The shrimp and grits were some of the best in a town that prides themselves on the dish. Muriel’s is as delicious as New Orleans gets! Paula & Billy

    Called ahead stating was going to be 15 mins late as two buses didn’t turn up from the stadium. Was told the kitchen was closing within 15 minutes so promptly ordered. Food was fine but didn’t want to order dessert if the kitchen was closing, but were happy to take another tables orders. Wanted to order a drink after the meal but was told the restaurant was shutting at 10pm, the time was already 10.15pm! The same waitress was very short and rude throughout. Would never leave a 18% tip for such shoddy service, but it’s the custom in the US. Very poor.

    I have been excited to experience Muriel’s based on past reviews. Having gone to another restaurant the night prior and being disappointed, I did not have high hopes. Well, let me tell you… Run to Muriel’s, don’t walk. We were there for Valentine’s Day where they had a special menu. The drinks, the food, the ambiance the second floor seance room, the decor… one word. DIVINE. A must when visiting New Orleans. Cannot recommend enough!

    Overall our experience was enjoyable but our server was not the best. We understand on Sunday before Mardi Gras is extremely busy. We had asked to wait for our dessert and after a short break they just appeared. We weren't asked if we were ready or wanted a coffee, etc. After dessert, we were just given the bill. Again not asked if we wanted anything else. It was also our anniversary, which was advised at booking. Again zero service. Luckily the food is divine and the bar in the back has an amazing bartender! We enjoyed our espresso Martini's there and gave a nicer tip! We definitely will eat at Muriel's again.

    I've visited Muriel's many times before, but this time, it felt like they "called it in." The appetizers (shrimp crepes) were Luke warm at best and came out within 30 seconds of ordering. Obviously, they were not made to order. The chicken was fine. Nothing great, nothing bad. My husband had the filet which was also, well, fine. I wish they would have dimmed the lights for ambiance. All lights were at their highest level, and our server told us that the photos on the wall were all photo-shopped. Sometimes, you just want a spooky story to go along with the photo on the wall. Kind of ruined what could have been. At this point, I wouldn't go back because there are so many other spots in the French Quarter that have delicious food and wonderful ambiance for a fair price.

    Every year we visit New Orleans and have dinner at Muriel's. The food is delicious! The service is exceptional! The ambiance is New Orleans! If you are in town for a visit and you want to experience not only authentic New Orleans Creole cuisine and be pampered by the outstanding waite staff, this should be your choice for dinner. We've also booked the Ghost Table in the past and that is so much fun, you should try it at least once. Then visit the secret upstairs...I will say no more.
