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 never disappoints! We came in around 7:30pm when we had a 9:15pm reservation but the staff was able to accommodate the our early arrival (even though the restaurant was busy)! We sat in the courtyard area for the first time and it was beautiful. Our waitress was wonderful and the food was delicious. It’s my favorite restaurant in the city and we will always be back!

Great service, food was delicious. Accommodated our request for courtyard seating for six people to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary! My hubby even had a ghost scare walking down the stairs from the 2nd floor balcony. Haaaaa ! Great night

Yesterday was I’m sure the busiest day at Muriel’s in a year since the Pandemic started. It was the first day that vaccinated citizens could go maskless. That being said, hats off to the entire staff there. We had reservations and were quickly seated by a very sweet young lady at the front door. Our server was absolutely excellent and the support servers were on their game. We enjoyed most everything (the chicken was a little dry)and the desserts (the creme brûlée was so delicious)were some of the best I’ve ever had. I would love to go back as soon as possible.

Food was fantastic and we arrived about 10-15 minutes early for our reservation and they took us back right away. We had our loud baby who was very cranky at the time and the wait staff went out of their way to bring the baby’s food early and talk to her and calm her down. They did a great job treating us like VIP rather than the couple with the screaming baby. (Sorry about that!)

As tourists in NOLA we found this experience very fulfilling, the food is amazing, its rich in flavour, the portions are large and prices are more than fair. It is a unique experience to be part of a restaurant that has so much history within. The service is expectional, I not only recommend this place for your visit in NOLA, it is a MUST!

I Enjoyed my dinning experience at Muriel's
From the Host to my Waiters everyone was so pleasant and helpful. This is was my first dinner for my NOLA birthday experience I am so glad I chose this restaurant. I had the Crispy Onion Salmon medium well and it was delicious, it was cooked to perfection for dessert I had the Vanilla Bean Créme Brûlée. OMG best Créme Brûlée I ever had. I recommend this restaurant not only due to its beautiful Aestic; but also the guest and food experience is by far the best I've received in NOLA.

We were visiting from California and again and didn’t have a chance to eat at Muriel’s last time, so we made it a priority to have dinner at this beautiful restaurant this time around. We were not disappointed, dinner was delicious! The restaurant is a must see, from the table reserved to eat with the ghost of Muriel’s to the Seance Room!

Truly an awesome place to enjoy drinks and/or a lovely dinner. The balcony overlooks the square and is wonderful to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine. The dining room is comfortable and well decorated. LOVE the seance room on the 2nd floor and the table set for the ghost of the previous owner! Definitely read about the history and its haunted past before going! Adds much to the experience. Food was fantastic and service was excellent.

They offered 5 dishes on Mother's Day. They ran out of the steak. I ordered the trout with jumbo lump crabmeat. They ran out of crab and topped it with Crawfish instead without letting us know. The appetizers came out barely lukewarm. We asked for bread and were told they did not have any bread. We then asked for crackers which they brought, but no butter. My fish came out piping hot, but had a long hair in it. They took it back to make a new one which took about 20 minutes. My family had all finished their meals, so I ate alone on Mother's Day. Also, when I finally did receive it, it was not piping hot. I have also been there for Easter and many of the same issues. They apparently can't handle the crowds on holidays. Not impressive at all.

What a wonderful Mother's Day Brunch! Muriel's is such a beautiful place to dine. We took advantage of the three course offering and enjoyed the chance to slow down our dining experience first with a Fleur de Lis cocktail. We began with the crawfish crepes, moved on to crawfish cakes on top of a corn maque choux, and ended with crème brule. Such an exquisite meal. We were not rushed and thoroughly enjoyed every bite! Muriel's also offers their own Russian River Valley Chardonnay which was very good. What was even better is the fact that it was a short walk from our hotel. Not our first time visiting, and we will be back.

We had a table on the balcony and high hopes for our dinner. Unfortunately, it was very windy and our table overlooked a homeless man that was half dressed and openly exploring his body parts on the street. The turtle soup was delicious! One of us ordered fish that was overcooked. The other had shrimp and grits - they were very good. Our bread pudding for dessert was tasty but nothing special. We enjoyed nice cocktails and overall it was a pleasant experience.

The goat and crawfish crepe was phenomenal as well as the butternut squash soup for an appetizer. Our entire party cleaned our plates for the entree and we tried every dessert each better than the last. However our waiter did spill a glass of ice water on a member of our party but we all had a good laugh. He claims “it was cool and refreshing”, although we half expected him to have a complimentary drink for the incident but nothing was giver however it was an honest mistake and a great meal.
