Creole / Cajun / Southern
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; is 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 dining or some of our specialty cocktails or private label Napa wines.

Muriel’s has always been our ‘go to’ favorite restaurant. We have a condo across from Muriel’s so that was a big bonus!! We have eaten there many times after the reopening during the pandemic 😷
My husband has always loved their double cut pork chop. He has ordered it 2 or 3 times since reopening and it’s been over cooked and dry each time. I’ve asked if they have the same chef prior to shutdown and been told yes. Not sure what has happened to the pork chop but I don’t recommend it.
Now the Filet, which is what I always order, is great!!!

All the food was excellent. Each of us ordered different food each course and shared a bit. Muriel’s was 9 for 9 on their dishes! Would recommend highly to all.

EAT AT MURIEL’S!!!
My wife was browsing for a place to eat on Saturday nighT. She found Muriel’s! Now, for years, I had heard nothing but rave reviews about Muriel’s so I said “let’s do it!”.

Without boring you I will say, from the time we sat down to the time we signed the bill and left; it was an INCREDIBLE dining experience! The service was impeccable, every bite was better than the last, the space itself was beautiful! I would recommend Muriel’s to anybody looking for a fantastic restaurant experience while in the French Quarter.
Located on the corner next to the St.Louis Cathedral it is the perfect spot for a date night in the Quarter.

Surprised our service was as bad as it was. The food is usually superb but it just didn’t measure up this visit. I took friends for their first time and was embarrassed. I hope it was just a glitch... Muriel’s is always such a pleasure to visit!

Ended up spending $300+, service was bad, ordered a bottle of white wine only to be brought to the table warm. Asked for bread but told no bread service. Save your money and go elsewhere.

We sat on the balcony on a beautiful evening. We chose the 3 course meal which worked out perfectly for us. My husband had the wedge salad, roasted chicken, and creme brûlée's. I chose the boudin egg rolls, shrimp & grits (TO DIE FOR), and the white chocolate bread pudding(TO DIE FOR). We will dine here again when returning to New Orleans.

Amazing food but a staff that doesn’t like people. It was a beautiful place but our two servers were cold, served us our check with our desert and were just not engaging. Almost like they were annoyed we were there and they weren’t even busy. Could have been a great experience but they are definitely hiring the wrong people.

My party and I was truly excited about dinning here because we heard so many wonderful things. The entire experience was below standard from the host, the servers and the food. We are locals and the food was cold, and the portions was unacceptable. Covid-19 guidelines were not being followed. I'm going to assume this restaurant caters to tourist. I DO NOT recommend dinning here if you are a local and looking for a good dinner or experience.

We absolutely loved our dining experience at Muriel's. Food, service and ambiance were all outstanding! We enjoyed the seafood gumbo, filet mignon and creme brulee.....all superb! We would highly recommend this place for a true New Orleans dining experience conveniently located in Jackson Square in the heart of the French Quarter.

Everything was no phenomenal. It was 45 degrees outside and they still allowed us to dine outside on their second floor balcony. Several others had chosen to dine outside as well. It was chilly but we are only patio dining due to Covid. Service and food was excellent. We were even serenaded by a musician in Jackson Square. (Dropped a nice tip down to him.) My only advice would be to add a couple of outdoor portable heaters as a few other restaurants had done.

The reservation was great. We were thrilled to share a meal and couple appetizers. They were all fantastic. The Pork Chop and Egg rolls our favorites. The crepe was tasty. It was a Birthday celebration and they offered us dessert, though we had plenty already. We finished the evening with a cocktail at the lower bar, then headed upstairs for some more oh wow enjoyment of the fabulous atmosphere that is found here.

The interior of the restaurant was lovely and there was minimal noise so you can hold a quiet conversation and enjoy your meal.
