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.

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.

From the moment we entered the restaurant, everyone was, of course, kind and professional..but it was the overall sense of gratitude and positivity that grabbed us. We felt special and were treated as such. Chad and Charles were our team and they were spot on. In fact, I have used Open Table for many years and have always had my allergies on my account. This is the first time that I have not had to alert a server of my allergies. Chad came to our table and said may I ask which of you has the allergies. I was so stunned that it took me a couple of seconds to fumble through my answer and say it was me. He confirmed what he read and said he felt my meal would be fine but he will speak with the chef and the team in the kitchen to be sure. That was just the tip of the iceberg for the continual great service. The restaurant had a good crowd and the team truly enjoyed taking care of everyone dining. It brought a smile to each of our face and made our evening special. Thank you, Chad, Charles, and the entire Muriel’s team!

The salad was objectively horrible. The wedge salad had very little dressing and no dressing. Overall, the food was mediocre and we don’t understand all the hoopla over this place.
