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.

We had the crepes for an appetizer, the red snapper and for dessert the flourless chocolate cake. Everything was absolutely wonderful. Looking forward to going back. Would highly recommend.

The staff was so kind. They moved us to n outdoor table, upon request. We did arrive early, to make this request. The service was so great, and they gave us free desert to celebrate our anniversary!

Jakob and Anthony took excellence care of my friend and me! They were attentive, engaging, and just nice people!

The food was delicious and served at the appropriate temperatures, and the drinks were a total treat—totally appropriate for Halloween time!

Muriels house salad was amazing
Onion Tart was excellent
“Filet of Beef” overcooked and tough
Bread pudding was phenomenal
Service Waiter David was exceptional
Overall experience was hurt by a bad steak but I would definitely go back and give them a second try.

Great ambience in the patio overlooking Jackson Square. Service was a tag team and always attentive. Appetizer of crepes was great, snapper was cooked just right, shrimp and grits was tasty, and deserts also very good. Highly recommended, best meal we had in NOLA.

Muriel's never disappoints. The food is well-prepared, with flair and expertise. Our table was in a great part of the restaurant. They have put partitions up to separate tables by the window. It was a great experience!

We had 6 people in our party. Our waiter/waitress were very attentive and worked together as a team. Most of us ordered off of the price fixe menu. This was a GREAT deal. We had LOTS of choices (not just the basic stuff). Everything came out hot and was seasoned perfectly. I highly recommend Muriel's and will DEF be back. My only complaint was I thought the drinks were a little pricey at $11 each for a small cocktail. Next time I'd pass on the liquor and stick with iced tea or cokes.

Muriel's is a great place for upscale dining. I had the salmon and my partner had the pork chop -both were outstanding! The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Excellent cocktails and desserts! We had the bread pudding and creme brulee - hands down the best we have ever had.

We asked the server about the ghost that resides there. She said the ghost pushed her down the stairs. She then spilled 2 cokes on our table. We think it was the ghost who knocked it from her hands. It was very delicious and fun.

As tourists, we could find food everywhere in the French Quarter, but nothing we ate was as wonderful as Muriel's. The atmosphere was that of fine dining but the prices were moderate. Service was fast amd attentive.

They sat us in a very secluded area looking into the table set for the resident ghost. I ordered the porkchop exactly to the waiter's reccomendation. I am a man, but the first bite literally made me cry. I had not ever tasted such flavor on any other meat dish and spent each remaining bite mourning the thought that eventually I would have to take a last bite and there be no more.

We arrived early and were seated in the bar until our reservation time. Being happy hour we enjoyed a couple white wine sangrias. We challenged the bartender to make a cocktail for us and he delivered. Dinner was wonderful, seated window side. Food was delicious and service was quick and friendly.

From the moment we were greeting until we left the restaurant the experience was phenomenal. Luis was our server and he was most informative about the menu and introduced Muriel's French 75 with a twist for us. The food was cooked to our specifications and social distancing was strictly adhered to.

I brought my girlfriends to my favorite restaurant in the Quarter! They loved everything about it. The precautions, the service, the food, and even the signature tour at the end! We ended our night with cocktails on the balcony overlooking Jackson Square. Thank you to everyone that we met. We all said we will be back soon!

Flew to New Orleans for my mother’s 58th birthday. First trip since having my son (9 months) and first trip since covid. It was also my sons first time in a restaurant. As nervous and stressed as I was, Matt made me relaxed and was just beyond helpful and pleasant. It’s literally the little things that help relieve stress of a mother. The food was beyond amazing!!! The salad... the fish.... the bread pudding.... the drinks.... AMAZING!!!

Matt, thank you for your hospitality and generosity and your overall helpfulness!!!
