Muriel's Jackson Square Ratings and Reviews
Sadly we must take Muriel's off of our list of favorites for now. The hostess was rude to my husband, the soups were good but the crab cakes and boudin balls were quite mediocre. The worst was a party next to us that was split between two tables and included 5 children under 6 years of age running wild and distracting us from any conversation. This is too expensive of a restaurant for all these problems.
My wife and I went to dinner on Saturday night early. We both ordered pecan encrusted drum on a bed of more pecans and other complements. The servers and kitchen handled our little special requests amiably and ably. The food, service and decor were excellent. We would rate this as one of our best meals - except management did not step in and stop two wild children from running the length of the room and screaming over and over. They were a great distraction from a fine dining experience. No great dining venue should tolerate such behavior.
We happened to be nearby at lunch a couple days later and, again, had good service (a little heavy handed selling on the extras) and great food. Recommend the shrimp and goat cheese crepes.
What a gem this wonderful restaurant is. Our first time in NOLA, and we will definitely be back to Muriel's Jackson Square. The location the ambiance and decor did not disappoint. The service and the food was over the top exceptional. We started off with a couple of cocktails. The Jackson Mule was wonderful. For starters we had the Blackened Shrimp Meat Pies, which were so tasty and perfect. The Roasted Beet Salad had such flavor (wish it had more beets though) For the main course I had the Pan Encrusted Baby Drum and my girlfriend had the Wood Grilled Filet of Beef. We were both in heaven with our choices and the explosions of flavor. A+++. We finished up with the Pain Perdu Bread Pudding. It was to die for. Every single plate of all was finished to the last crumb.
Tremendous food! Loved our visit there from all aspects. Shared the gnocchi with mushrooms as an appetizer with my daughter. Sopped up the extra sauce with excellent bread. I had the bayoubaisse which was a really good rendition of the classic. Dessert was different. Carrot cake ice cream sandwich with cream cheese ice cream finished it off greatly. Wine was also good.
The service was wonderful. The staff was attentive, had a good demeanor and spot on recommendations. The food was also spectacular. I do not think there was anything on the menu I would not be willing to try in the future. I am looking forward to visiting Muriel’s during my next visit to New Orleans.
I went with my sister and her husband after a Saints game, the restaurant was extremely accommodating to us, due to the game traffic we were late for our reservation, but the staff made sure we got seated at a very nice table anyway.
The food was totally amazing, everyone had different dining needs and they were able to meet all of them. Their custom cocktails were also a big hit.
We tried at least 9 different menu items and we all agreed that everything was outstanding.
We cannot wait until the next time.
We went for Brunch before the Saints game. Service was excellent as usual. I noticed the Brunch menu did not have the eggs Benedict l really liked. They had replaced it with Eggs Ventay. I tried the new dish which was supposed to be a special Muriel’s entree. I have to say I was disappointed with the dish. Hopefully they will put their original Eggs Benedict back on the menu. Other than that everything was outstanding,
We ordered the cod which was delicious and the salmon which was terrible and barely edible. It was incredibly fishy and dry. The place is beautiful and I have eaten there before and had a much better experience previously. The service was not great. The servers were short with us and at times seemed even rude. Disappointing
Several years ago, while visiting New Orleans, a friend took me to Muriel's. We had a wonderful meal and a great time there. Service was great. Atmosphere incredible!
This visit to New Orleans, it was myself, my husband, my brother and his spouse. We went to Muriel's for dinner right after the Thanksgiving holiday. We had the best dinner. The pork chops are outstanding - probably the best we have ever had. The corn and crab chowder - yummy! The price is reasonable for all they serve to you.
We would all highly recommend Muriel's......and if you have the opportunity - go upstairs and see all the wonderful rooms including their séance room! We had a unique experience in that room.
Despite being listed as allergy friendly on many blogs and web sites it is not. Staff was indifferent and uneducated about food allergies. Even the salad dressing made in house is not gluten free. One of the Brennen family restaurants a few blocks away was able to offer an appetizer, entree, and something sweet that fit my food allergy needs.
We dined at Muriel’s to celebrate my and my fiancee’s engagement. The 3 course meal provided the perfect cap to a beautiful day. Our appetizers were delicious. The cheesecake I had offered a savory, exciting take on an old favorite. For our main courses, I had delicious and hearty chicken, and my fiancée had fish. Both were excellent. For dessert, I had creme brulet. Also great. The cocktails (she drank Ramos Gin Fizz and I had sazeracs) were also perfectly prepared.
For a quiet, attentive, fine dining experience in the quarter, you can’t go wrong with Muriel’s. The staff and kitchen team helped to make my special night a memorable one.
