Our brunch was wonderful. The service was impeccable and the food was fabulous. Make sure that you don't sit too near the jazz bank if you want to talk on Sunday morning. They are very good, however; the clarinet is loud when it is beside you. If you go this month take advantage of the specials. The poached eggs on shrimp cakes were out of this world good!! And the bread pudding....yum!!!

Geat Sunday brunch with live music. We had the crab cakes, seafood gumbo, meal and pork chop. All good solid choices. We finished our brunch with the Careot cake ice cream sandwich.

We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Our servers were attentive and kind without being obtrusive. The drinks were delivered quickly as well as the first course. There was appropriate breathing time between courses. The dining room was full but people were respectful of the venue and the noise level was low. My dinner was absolutely divine. I had the double cut pork with sweet potato as an entree, the gorgonzola cheesecake as a starter and flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Each course was delicious. An absolute 5 star experience.

Loved this place! The food is sooooo much better than the over-priced tourist trap I ate at last night. Best Creme Brulee I've eaten in a long time ❤️ Wish I'd discovered Muriel's sooner, will definitely be back. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We dined at Muriel’s for the first time and it will not be our last. We were in for a special treat since the restraint features its COOLinary menu. Everything we tasted was outstanding, the servers were professional and knowledgeable, and the restaurant was very welcoming. Can wait to come back on future trips to NOLA!

This is a great place for both lunch and dinner; this year it was dinner. The roasted beet salad is always a treat because it is so very unique. It is spring greens in a delicate dressing with golden beets, yum! We enjoyed the double cut pork chop which was grilled and very tender. The gulf fish was two filets, small, but when you are saving room for dessert, of no consequence there. It was done in a lemon butter sauce and quite good. The carrot cake ice cream sandwich missed its mark on two counts. The first was that the carrot cake was stale in texture, thereby adding nothing to the dish. The second was that the vanilla ice cream was bland. A quick fix for this dessert would be an extra egg in the cake batter and use cinnamon ice cream to add flavor that is lost in the freezing of the cake.

Had an early dinner that was wonderful. The turtle soup was delicious as was the double pork chop. the flourless chocolate cake was tasty and just moist enough. We were with old friends and the noise level was just right for us to be able to converse without effort. We always go to Muriel's in August during Coolinary and expect to do so for many years to come. The value and food can't be beat.

Great dinner and service! Restaurant was buzzing, likely due to the Red Dress Run being held that day, and we enjoyed the vibe. We each chose the prix fixe menu and each course was delicious. Unfortunately we didn't see any ghosts.

Muriel's was recommended for visiting on my first trip to New Orleans. I wanted to experience the different food offered. I was not disappointed with Muriel's. Not only was the food and atmosphere above my expectations the location puts it in the center of the downtown nightlife.

My husband and I chose Muriels to celebrate our anniversary and we were not disappointed! Beautiful historical building, please take the time to walk it and take it all in. Don't miss the upstairs. We decided to order the 3 course tasting menu, each choosing a different appetizer, entree, and dessert in order to try an assortment and found it all delicious, as well as very reasonably priced! You must have the goat cheese crepes, the shrimp and grits, and bread pudding while there. Heavenly! I also had a delicious cocktail, called Honey Child. The staff was outstanding, very attentive and willing to assist in anyway, whether it was sharing about the history of the building or taking photos. We will definitely return!

We love Muriels and always try to eat there when in NOLA. It is a nice break from all the sticky tables and loud eating places in the city. The atmosphere is wonderful especially for a special occations. We did notice that some of the patrons did not follow a dress code and that was a little disappointing. The food was wonderful as always and the service was impeccable.
