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 dining or some of our specialty cocktails or private label Napa wines.

Love the restaurant’s ambiance and decor. Food was good except shrimp omelet has too spicy. Really enjoyed the crab & artichoke dip and salmon toast!! If want a leisurely brunch, don’t get last seating. Overall very happy.

Considering location (right on Jackson Square) and ambiance (well dressed hosts and managers, fancy decor), this was a nice prix fixe menu of a moderate price ($45/p). Drinks (wine and cocktails) were $11-15 or so.

Food was good. Service was good. I would recommend.

You can dress up for this place or just meet their "sharp casual" requirement.

Covid protocols seemed adequate.

We thoroughly enjoyed this dining experience. During this pandemic, it’s hard to find places that you feel comfortable and safe (health-wise). We were impressed with the level to which they encouraged wearing masks. They required them upon entrance and anytime interacting with wait staff......this makes so much sense to me. While we ate, they checked on us from a distance and only approached when water or wine needed replenishing. The way they have tables partitioned off provided a very intimate (and safe) dining experience. All of this attention coupled with delicious food made for an enjoyable birthday dinner.

In the heart of the French Quarter at Jackson Square this restaurant knows how to do it right! Even in these Covid times are they are still making great food and have lost nothing in the atmosphere. With 2 servers for each table, one for entree and one for beverages no drink goes empty and no empty dish sits on the table. Top notch Louisiana fare or French American. The goat cheese crepes will make you want to lick you plate! I love Muriel's and so does my family.

As frequent visitors to New Orleans we have eaten at numerous higher end restaurants and were very disappointed by Muriel's. The food was not good at all and most of the staff were not friendly. As two parties of four, we tried almost everything on the very limited menu and not one of us was happy with our meal. The steak was very tough although the sauce on top was delicious. The snapper was passable but everything else (except the cocktails) were a huge disappointment. With so many great restaurants in New Orleans, Muriel's really needs to step up their game!

My family loved the Sunday brunch at Muriel’s. The service was good, the food was excellent, and we could people-watch out the window. This was our first time here but we will come back when we are back in town. Highly recommended.

Muriel’s has always been our ‘go to’ favorite restaurant. We have a condo across from Muriel’s so that was a big bonus!! We have eaten there many times after the reopening during the pandemic 😷
My husband has always loved their double cut pork chop. He has ordered it 2 or 3 times since reopening and it’s been over cooked and dry each time. I’ve asked if they have the same chef prior to shutdown and been told yes. Not sure what has happened to the pork chop but I don’t recommend it.
Now the Filet, which is what I always order, is great!!!

EAT AT MURIEL’S!!!
My wife was browsing for a place to eat on Saturday nighT. She found Muriel’s! Now, for years, I had heard nothing but rave reviews about Muriel’s so I said “let’s do it!”.

Without boring you I will say, from the time we sat down to the time we signed the bill and left; it was an INCREDIBLE dining experience! The service was impeccable, every bite was better than the last, the space itself was beautiful! I would recommend Muriel’s to anybody looking for a fantastic restaurant experience while in the French Quarter.
Located on the corner next to the St.Louis Cathedral it is the perfect spot for a date night in the Quarter.

Surprised our service was as bad as it was. The food is usually superb but it just didn’t measure up this visit. I took friends for their first time and was embarrassed. I hope it was just a glitch... Muriel’s is always such a pleasure to visit!

Ended up spending $300+, service was bad, ordered a bottle of white wine only to be brought to the table warm. Asked for bread but told no bread service. Save your money and go elsewhere.

We sat on the balcony on a beautiful evening. We chose the 3 course meal which worked out perfectly for us. My husband had the wedge salad, roasted chicken, and creme brûlée's. I chose the boudin egg rolls, shrimp & grits (TO DIE FOR), and the white chocolate bread pudding(TO DIE FOR). We will dine here again when returning to New Orleans.
