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 enjoying our specialty cocktails or private label Napa wines.

Muriel’s Provided the best meal of our trip to New Orleans, Inventive apps, hearty exquisitely prepared entrées, knowledgeable friendly server guided our choices perfectly!

Add to that the professional bar staff, the charming atmosphere and the scrumptious deserts, all made for a perfect night!!!

The only problem was we all ate too much!!!

Amazing experience! We went for the jazz brunch. We had excellent service, the jazz trio was wonderful, and food was delicious. We had the Bananas Foster French toast and the pulled pork Benedict and some gumbo. I would highly recommend Muriels to anyone. We didn’t want to leave!

Wonderful! The property is beautiful and interesting, including the history in the drinks menu. I can’t review this completely because we rushed thru our dinner and had the dessert packed to go, as we were racing to see the Krewe of Boo parade. But they worked with us and we made it. Service was attentive and really special, they do a fantastic job taking care of you.
Appetizers/first courses - Turtle soup was incredible and rich, baby spinach salad was delicious, and the onion tart was wonderfully deeply flavored. Main courses - blackened redfish was very tasty but the stuffing that came with it was just ok, the salmon with the mushroom cream sauce was dreamy, and the shrimp and grits were very good. I ordered the pain perdu bread pudding, but they packed up the creme brûlée. It was very rich and creamy, but not what I had been looking for.
Overall, so glad we finally made it to Muriels, after years of visiting! Highly recommend!

We’d arrived a couple of hours earlier for our NOLA vacation and were staggering around the FQ in search of food. We happened upon Muriel’s and to our surprise had one of the best meals of our trip! Drinks, food and service were superb.

Our sever Travis was great, as was the food. But we ordered the suggested wine pairing to go with our meal, and the wine never made it out. We had just written it off as no big deal, but then as we were waiting to pay, a different server brought our wine and got an attitude when we told her that we didn’t want them at this point because we had wanted to enjoy them during our meal, not take them in a to go cup (which she rudely suggested). They then proceeded to charge us for the 2 glasses of wine that were late and we didn’t touch.

Absolutely the PERFECT place for a special dinner in the French Quarter. Restored historical house on Jackson Square, balcony with great view for after dinner drinks, its own ghost(s), and delicous food. We came to NOLA to celebrate our anniversary and could not have asked for a better anniversary dinner.

This place is excellent! The wait staff is so friendly & knowledgeable about the history of the area. We loved that each of the dining rooms have the own unique look & decor style. The food is superb! We enjoyed jazz brunch, which was just delightful to listened to while we dined. The bread pudding is an absolute must! We liked it so much, we’re thinking of going back for dinner before our trip ends.

Excellent New Orleans cuisine set in a restaurant that not only oozes historical beauty , but takes you back to another time. It's also in the perfect location across the street from Jackson Square. If you're looking for New Orleans ambiance and food Muriel's is a great choice. Enjoy!

Wish I could givemore stars to the staff. People cheerfully greeted us when we walked in and performed the mandatory checks in as pleasant a way as possible. Our two waiters were excellent. You could tell they enjoyed their jobs and took very good care of us though the entire dining experience. Wish they had at least a minimal dress code. I would classify this as a fine dining restaurant for sure. Most people dressed at least somewhat appropriately, but others were absolute pigs. Okay, I understand the location and blocked it out and still had a nice evening. Love the restaurant and again hats off to the staff.

Excellent meal and wonderful venue. Started with a sazarac and a hurricane (so much better than "off the street!") for cocktails. One of us had the prix fixe dinner selections and I had a la carte. We began our meal with turtle soup (with splash of sherry! so delicious - one of my favorites) and shrimp and goat cheese crepes (delicate flavor, generous portion).
For mains, we had the crispy onion salmon (salmon filet perfectly cooked to medium and topped with an onion panko crust, side of haricot verts and a mushroom cream sauce - hubby loved it) and the roasted half duck (OH my...so yummy and very generous) with haricot verts and rice pilaf. The pilaf was a bit sticky/overcooked but I also had a side of buttermilk mashed potatoes that were heavenly so hubby dispatched the rice with no complaints - LOL. Dessert was a large portion of bread pudding in rum sauce - not too sweet, excellent bread pudding.
Very attentive and personable staff, food was wonderful, and the restaurant was very comfortable and elegant.
Don't miss the sèance lounge upstairs! We took a last drink up to soak in the mystical atmosphere. Will definitely come back and recommend to friends/family!

Wedge salad was beyond expectations with a perfectly delightful Creole cream dressing. Shrimp and grits was delicious and the bread pudding was my favorite of three, the others at Commander's Palace and Galatoire's. Don't miss the seance lounge upstairs!

Overall it was a fairly good meal. I liked the turtle soup, and bread. My shrimp and grits were way salty, but my son said they were blackened... so more salty. Ok. He has panko covered salmon with mushroom sauce. He enjoyed it. My husband had the pork chop and said the flavor and texture was perfect.
It's an experience, but I don't know if it'd do it again.
Creme brulee was excellent.

Great location on Jackson Square and the service was top notch. Loved watching the visitors to New Orleans walk by. The Prix Fix menu was a great deal - a very good 3 course dinner for under $50. The salmon crusted with onion was cooked exactly like we requested and the onion tarte was different and excellent. Another great New Orleans restaurant.

Food and service were great. The atmosphere was a bit disappointing as I thought it was going to be more of a fine dinning type of environment/ experience. The decor was nice but sounded more like a busy sports bar.
