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 planned our trip to New Orleans to have this place be the height of eating Unfortunately that never happened. We waited 45 minutes for any sign of our dinner and it was no where in sight. Our “drink wait staff” was sparse as we waited Eventually we just paid for our drinks and left. Huge disappointment. We felt invisible and were saddened by the lack of acknowledgment. Not worth the hype

    Very very poor experience. Will not be back. Went on Saturday, 3/2, around 12:30pm. We had 2 servers. Our male server was very friendly, but our female server was very rude. At one point she was crying while cleaning tables. We alerted the hostess so they could offer our server some help, and they couldn't seem to care less. To top off the very strange experience we were already having, of course our bill was wrong and it seemed impossible to find anyone that cared enough to help. The food was great, but unfortunately the bizarre, cold, and rude service overshadowed the meal.

    Food was excellent - pecan crusted drum and smoked pork chop, in particular. Crème brûlée and pain perdu bread pudding were great. Turtle soup was mediocre, with very little turtle or seasoning. Kitchen was rolling out the food promptly. Bartender was excellent. Only real complaint was noise level was very high, presumably due to drunk patrons. Upstairs lounge is really neat.

    Very good restaurant - good food & pre fixe menu created a great experience for a reasonable price. While this is in the French Quarter, which would make you fear that it was touristy or overrated. Would definitely return.

    This was my first time to visit Muriel’s but it certainly won’t be the last. The service was excellent and the food was heavenly. You must try the pork chop, the gnocchi, and the crème brûlée. The vampires kiss cocktail was simply beautiful as well. If you want to indulge, visit Muriel’s. You will not be disappointed.

    Beautiful brunch at Muriel’s! Gorgeous building & decor. So comfortable & cosy & elegant. Excellent service, kind warm & friendly hostess. Drinks were delish & food was yummy! Dress code says smart casual, but it was very relaxed. Not fussy at all, except you do need to remove hats. The jazz band was so good & even came to our table to play a request! It really was a magical birthday brunch for me & such a perfect NOLA experience! I’m sensitive to loud noises & had no issues at all. We forgot to go upstairs to see the seance room but we’ll get there next time!

    Everything was fine until one of us found a rubber band in their food. It was not handled well; the person who I assume was the floor manager did offer some compensation such as a replacement meal for the guest involved, but the tone and tenor was arrogant bordering on rude. A pity, because its' a great venue with a long history.

    We had reservations but came early and they seated us in the Arcade (I think that’s what it was called…it was by the bar). Got housed whenever anyone walked by. A group came into the bar from a wedding and the noise level made it impossible to hear. The waitress acted like she was doing us a favor by acknowledging us. We asked about how items on the menu were Prepared and she said to look at the menu! The food was good…not excellent which was what I expected.

    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.
