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.

I was disappointed with the service and had the feeling of being in a cafeteria. Order your food, and they push you through. Sad since my husband and I had a great experience here a few years ago.

I’d never eaten at Muriel’s before because I thought it was a priced-for-tourists place. Coolinary let me try it for “locals” price. It was AMAZING! The food was delicious! The service, from management to busser, was phenomenal! I will definitely eat there again outside of Coolinary.

This is our annual must go to restaurant in Nola. Very disappointed this year. The service was horrible. Took 20 minutes to put in a wine order. Tables were cleared sporadically. Server was rude and not accommodating. Post covid the service has really gone from elite and outstanding to mediocre at best. The food was still excellent but for this price point, we will find a new favorite spot.

Our dinner was amazing. We were able to order off the Coolinary Menu which was a 3 course meal, only available certain times of the year. Everything was incredible. Our servers Chad and Daikari was the best. If you have an opportunity to try it go!!!

Wonderful place for a girls night in the French Quarter. Food was rich and delicious! Service was perfect-attentive but not intrusive. My daughter did the 3 courses: boudin egg rolls, shrimp grits and bread pudding. I chose the gumbo along with goat cheese crepes. We had plenty sharing all. We left overstuffed and VERY satisfied. Highly recommend. A+

Well. It’s a really eclectic and fun atmosphere. Menu for dinner is different than what I viewed online as far as they offer a three course menu. Ala cart pricing is not available on the menu. Service was nice but SLOW. Just seems like they don’t have the logistical kinks worked out. We were there for far too long (25 mins) before the water even showed up. It was disappointing for a $350 meal. Feel duped.

I knew it was a volume-centered restaurant and not a service/quality-centered restaurant going in. My expectations were low. Muriel’s failed to meet even those.
Service: very slow. Didn’t check in. Had empty water and drinks for ages. Took forever to take our order.
The menu is a 3 course prix fix. You’d think with this limited selection they’d nail it. NOPE. The shrimp in every course was overcooked. Mushy in the first. Hard in the second. This is NOLA, how can you not know how to cook shrimp?
The bill: Took a long time to get the bill. They charged us for the prix fix AND up-charged us for the 3rd course. The server said it was an accident. (I don’t buy this—I think she gets away with this up-charge a lot)
Overall: not good. Skip it.

Seafood gumbo came cold and had no Seafood (basically was a reaux and rice dish), goat cheese crepes also came cold, salmon came cold and was very dry. Wait staff was rushed, unresponsive, and disconnected from any customer interaction. Dessert (sorbet) was okay as well as the pims cup. Have been here several times over many years and honestly will most likely not return.

Everything was great but restaurant was extremely noisy, and with the server’s mask- we couldn’t understand or hear her. The table behind us was very rambunctious. It wasn’t a quiet dining experience.

Made reservation, arrived on time and was seated immediately at a small table in the middle of the room. Waited 10 min and got water and menus. Waited 15 more minutes for waiter and never showed up. People at a table next to us arrived after us and received their food before our waiter came to take our drink order. We left 30 min after we were seated with no service and went to the Gumbo Shop which was great.

We had 3 in our party. Service was excellent. Food was amazing! We had the turtle soup and shrimp/goat cheese crepes to start. Our entrees were shrimp and grits, ribeye, and blackened red fish. Dessert was creme brûlée and white chocolate bread pudding. I will be dreaming of this meal for months to come. Can’t wait for my next trip to NOLA to eat at Muriel’s again!
