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.

First time in New Orleans and decided to reserve a nice dinner with the friends. The restaurant was very accommodating when we called to tell them we were running late and worked with us to give us a new reservation time. The ambience was perfect, food was amazing and service was great! Arlene was our server and she was so friendly! She came by enough to make sure we were never missing anything, but also enough that we never felt like it was too much. The six of us all had the Wood Grilled Beef of Fillet and no one had a single complaint! It was delicious!

Very nice dinner! Our waiter was very nice and helpful in many ways. Parking in the hotel next door made for easy parking (which Muriels validates!) Right next door to the Cathedral which makes for great photo ops. Highly recommended dining here!

The food was amazing & our server Dara was absolutely fantastic!

BUT-when we were there on Saturday night, there was a large party of about 10 to 12 adults sitting a couple tables over from us. They we’re playing Salsa music from one of there cell phones VERY loudly and completely ruined our experience for a nice quiet dinner in a beautiful historic building.

We watched as numerous servers and management walked past the table but nobody said a thing to them. It was very disrespectful to all the other patrons in the room & extremely rude of the other guest.

Disappointed that the problem was not handled, but ignored by the staff.

Food was wonderful, plenty of food and delicious. Just sad that so few tables were filled because of the pandemic. I guess good for us since it reduced exposure but bad for the restaurant because of business. Muriel's is a reliable favorite.

We eat and travel all over the world.. pre covid🤪. This had to be in the top 5 meals we have ever had!!! The shrimp and grits were something I can’t even put into words. My son had the pork chop and I have to say it was the beat pork chop I have ever tasted. My hubby had the seafood stew and it was gone before I could even taste it😂!! The bread pudding is something that should be illegal it was so good!!! We will be back for sure on our next time into town. Mark our server was also amazing! This was all around totally amazing!!!!!

During these unprecedented times, Muriel's is going above and beyond to ensure customer and staff safety. Not only did they take our temperatures upon arrival but they also spaced tables more than 20 feet apart and had dividers between them. The food and service were outstanding and made a pandemic birthday celebration very nice. Thank you to the staff at Muriel's.

Muriels is very expensive for the quality of food. The Dinner Menu, while small now, has choices for everyone. Unfortunately, when your food does come it will be luke warm at best. The drinks arrived quickly and were good; The drink prices were on par with the rest of the FQ. For $192 w/tip it was most definitely not worth the trip for the food alone for 3 people. There are better choices in the FQ.

I should mention the service. The service was however outstanding, and the other staff friendly and attentive. The food itself was the only let down, which is the main reason one goes to a restaurant!

We came here to celebrate our anniversary in New Orleans with our 4 kids, and we were treated extremely well. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful. The food and drinks were delicious! We really enjoyed the table set for the ghost and the seance lounge. The atmosphere was beautiful; we sat in the courtyard area, but we toured the whole place. Sanitation procedures during the pandemic are up to par. Our waitress even brought out 2 special desserts as a surprise to us for our anniversary, and they were amazing!! And the kids were happy with their coloring pages and crayons. Highly recommend Muriel’s!

We came here on our first night as homeowners in New Orleans, a few weeks after restaurants started to reopen after the Covid-19 lockdown. We encountered only kind people, careful procedures, and great food. Come here, and spend and tip generously.

Awesome atmosphere and location. Went during covid so not many people. Employees and customers wear masks and take temp when entering so very health conscious. Food is very good. Appetizers and soups are better than the entrees.
Crepe appitizer was fantastic. Wish the speckled trout had the same sauce that was on the crepe entree. Service is excellent.

We had our best meal at this restaurant during our stay in New Orleans. The food and service were outstanding. Not only that, of all the places we ate at, this restaurant went over and beyond all the ones we went to in regards to safety in regards to Covid. They took our temperatures upon arrival and there were hand sanitizers at the hostess desk. They also had this wall art that hung from the ceilings that acted as barriers that separated our table from the next one. To top it off, they even gave us little packets of liquid hand sanitizers with our check. We highly recommend Muriel's at Jackson Square as THE place to have a meal. It was that good.

The menu provided on Open Table was accurate, and understandably due to COVID, was limited. Looking forward to the day they can roll their extended menu back out.

Beautiful view of Jackson Square. Dinner menu seemed abbreviated, but everything was delicious! Strongly recommend for multiple reasons: 1. Exceptional service and attention to detail while following CDC guidelines (wait staff always masked, minimal contact with customers while still staying attentive to guests' needs), 2. Addition of screens between tables at windows were attractive and practical for social distancing, adding the overall feeling of consideration to guests' health, 3. Lovely atmosphere inside the restaurant -- with just the right balance between safety and an enjoyable meal, and 4. Beautiful plating and quality ingredients made for an exceptional meal. I've visited Muriel's on a few other occasions and appreciated the dining experience, and this time seemed "different" due to protocols (not in a bad way), but still noteworthy and enjoyable.
