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.

They offered 5 dishes on Mother's Day. They ran out of the steak. I ordered the trout with jumbo lump crabmeat. They ran out of crab and topped it with Crawfish instead without letting us know. The appetizers came out barely lukewarm. We asked for bread and were told they did not have any bread. We then asked for crackers which they brought, but no butter. My fish came out piping hot, but had a long hair in it. They took it back to make a new one which took about 20 minutes. My family had all finished their meals, so I ate alone on Mother's Day. Also, when I finally did receive it, it was not piping hot. I have also been there for Easter and many of the same issues. They apparently can't handle the crowds on holidays. Not impressive at all.

What a wonderful Mother's Day Brunch! Muriel's is such a beautiful place to dine. We took advantage of the three course offering and enjoyed the chance to slow down our dining experience first with a Fleur de Lis cocktail. We began with the crawfish crepes, moved on to crawfish cakes on top of a corn maque choux, and ended with crème brule. Such an exquisite meal. We were not rushed and thoroughly enjoyed every bite! Muriel's also offers their own Russian River Valley Chardonnay which was very good. What was even better is the fact that it was a short walk from our hotel. Not our first time visiting, and we will be back.

We had a table on the balcony and high hopes for our dinner. Unfortunately, it was very windy and our table overlooked a homeless man that was half dressed and openly exploring his body parts on the street. The turtle soup was delicious! One of us ordered fish that was overcooked. The other had shrimp and grits - they were very good. Our bread pudding for dessert was tasty but nothing special. We enjoyed nice cocktails and overall it was a pleasant experience.

Our favorite New Orleans restaurant, K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen has closed, but Muriel’s is a good replacement. Good food, good wine, good service, couldn’t have asked for more.

Very nice restaurant in a great location. Service was very good. Food was good but not exceptional. Honestly the most memorable thing was the bread pudding and Muriel’s coffee. Wine selection was very limited and red wine not served in proper glassware.

Dinner was great. We did sit at the Ghost table. Not really worth the additional $50 especially seeing it was next to the staircase to go up. Sit in the main dining room or balcony and save the extra $50.

Best meal we’ve had in New Orleans, not just this 10 day visit, but several previous visits as well. All three of us had the 3-course dinner and every dish that we had was outstanding. I had the onion tart, which is exceptionally tasty, and my friends both loved the turtle soup. My entree was the Gulf fish, which was grouper and delicious. We all had the bread pudding and it was also amazing

I’ve had a second home in the Quarter for 20 years and have probably eaten at Muriel’s over 50 times previously, but this was my first dinner there since Covid began. It has always been good, but this was clearly a step above. Whatever they are doing, I hope they keep it up!

This was a girls weekend so we decided to get dressed up and have dinner at a nice hotel with great views and excellent service. We were immediately seated and the excellent service started. Our order was taken timely and our food arrived within an appropriate period. The food was hot and delicious. We ordered the fixed price menu which included appetizers, entree and dessert. The appetizer was amazing - goat and crawfish crepes. I recommend this restaurant for adults in a group of family, friends or co workers.

Fantastic experience. The staff is so incredibly friendly and it was so easy to ask for recommendations and get to know them. The food was phenomenal and worth every penny. Definitely recommend checking out the rooftop seating overlooking Jackson square, but any area of the restaurant has such a unique ambiance. The staff reallly put the experience over the top and I loved it

Food and service are excellent. For me otherthings matter less.
I was seated in a dark corner, so did not feel the ambiance. But the tasty food and wonderful service outweigh.

For all the hype I really expected more. Pork was dry, service was iffy. There was a waiter with at least one assistant and he didn’t have to run food, they had bussers for that. Because of that, service should’ve been great. Instead he just did really fast drive bys without stopping. “Y’all good?” With a thumbs up was all we got.

The only good-ish parts were the drinks. This place has been riding on the hype and the story of it it being haunted for way too long. If you feel like you have to go, just skip the food and go to the bar, have a couple drinks, look for the ghosts and then get the heck out.

We reserved Muriel's for my husband's 40th birthday dinner. It was myself, my husband and our two children (both are under age 10). Everyone we encountered was very kind. I tagged the restaurant in my Instagram post and whoever manages their social media also reached out with kind words. My kids especially loved the "Clean Plate" reward (even though they still had food left over, they still got the reward). We're only a two hour drive from NOLA but we don't get to visit as often as we'd like. We'll be back here as soon as we can!
