The Bistro at Muriel’s Jackson Square offers New Orleans classics like Gumbo, BBQ Shrimp, Oysters "Muriel", Turtle soup, Fried Gulf Shrimp Po-boy, Crabmeat Imperial, Shrimp Remoulade & contemporary Creole cuisine like Pecan Crusted Drum & Wood Grilled Tuna while the Courtyard Bar is the perfect place to drop by for drinks & appetizers. The Séance Lounge is the place for a relaxed, comfortable meeting before or after dining. Comprised of two areas, The Outer & 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 best bordellos! The Inner Séance is the preferred domain of the resident ghost, Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan, & is the perfect spot for an intimate conversation & a drink amongst its plush surroundings.

Literally the best meal I ever had!

Context: we were long time NOLA residents and return at least twice yearly for family / business. Had to return appetizer (Baked Oysters) for undercooked, poor taste. Replacement appetizer (Mushrooms with Gnocci) was better, like a deconstructed mushroom soup , but actual mushroom pieces were not generous. Signature entree of Pecan Crusted Baby Drum did not blend well with spinach, sauce and chopped Pecans base. Plus the granular texture of the fish topping was jarring to the taste. The room captain personally expedited our dishes and talked to us multiple times kabout our disappointing meal, tried to convince us this was a one-off experience and unusual (felt like he was trying to partially blame us for being picky unlike the rest of the happy diners)

We enjoyed a drink up on the balcony before our 6:15pm reservation which was a great introduction. Really lovely table setting and presentation. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. The servers gave excellent recommendations and were very attentive even with it being quite busy. Overall it was a really nice experience which was a pleasant surprise for a touristy location.

We were greeted nicely and shown to our table immediately. Travis and Michelle looked after us incredibly well, keeping pur iced water topped up always. The selection of reading glasses was most helpful when having forgotten your own. We had the table d’hote menu. I have to say the portion sizes were enormous (I had the pork). The quality and flavour was wonderful though. It is a very popular spot and I do believe the whole service seems rushed as they have to cater for numerous seatings, thereby reducing the intimacy and personability of the restaurant somewhat. All in all a great experience.

Food was delicious and service was en pointe. The prix fix menu was an awesome deal for quite a lot of authentic food!

Fantastic. Was 15 minutes late due to police activity in the area, but was seated promptly by great staff.

Enjoyed Muriel's. Southern charm and good Southern food. Staff very helpful and friendly. Just one suggestion -- tell us a little bit more about your ghost -- or include a short info panel on your menu.
