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.

Came to NOLA to celebrate friends birthday and found Muriel’s. The food was excellent, probably the best we had while here. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable making suggestions for both dinner and what to do in the French Quarter. Will absolutely be back.

We were hesitant on where we would pick to eat on our trip, as we are from Lafayette and cook lots of our food differently from New Orleanians, however the food was absolutely AMAZING. The cocktails were wonderful and every single staff member was very kind and friendly. We left so extremely happy with choosing this place to eat. We were upset that we didn't get our 9utside table that we had selected for our reservation, but everything else was so great we quickly forgot about it.

The food here was extraordinary. Delicious wood fired pork chop haricot certs and andouille potatoes. I enjoyed a lovely salad and a scrumptious flourless chocolate cake for dessert. The honeychild cocktail was refreshing and thoroughly enjoyable. Make sure to visit the seance room and balcony. The decor and atmosphere are some of the most unique in the quarter. By far my most favorite place in the city ! Can't wait for my next visit !

We were once again very impressed with the great feeling, service and food served at Muriel’s. From the person seating us, to the service attendants to the outstandingly tasty plates of double cut pork chops, shrimp and grits and fresh fish of the day(drum) we were very impressed and will strongly recommend this restaurant to all of our friends and visitors to NOLA.

A favorite restaurant of mine and never fails to deliver! We sat up on the balcony on a very pleasant evening which was quite enjoyable. My only complaint would be that the tables on the balcony are a little small for dinner for 3! The Shrimp and grits was outstanding!

Oh, how I've missed the fine restaurants in New Orleans during the height of the pandemic! Muriels has put up beautiful decorative screens between the tables along the windows that make you feel very private. It was lovely. And of course the food is as good as ever.

I was looking for a great place to dine for my 51st birthday. I found this restaurant on the list of Coolinary Restaurants. The shrimp/corn soup was delicious. So were my pork chops. My daughter enjoyed the roasted chicken. We both enjoyed the chocolate cake. I was given vanilla ice cream as a birthday dessert. The atmosphere was really nice. Validations are provided for the local parking garage. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We had a birthday special meal at Muriels. Three of us had the perfectly-grilled pork chops and one had the grilled redfish special with crawfish and crabmeat. We also had gumbo, turtle soup and a salad, and all were delicious. For dessert we had the bread pudding, chocolate flourless cake and creme brûlée. We enjoyed the crafted cocktails and wine as well. We have been there often and plan to continue to do do.

The food was absolutely amazing! As someone who cannot eat gluten it was wonderful to find a place so accommodating with food that was spectacular. The sweet potato and andouille soup was by far the best soup I have ever had, the layers of flavor were indescribable. The staff was warm, friendly, helpful and kind. We were scheduled to eat at Tableau last night but enjoyed Thursday nights dinner so much that we canceled that reservation and booked a reservation with you instead. Best decision! We will be back! Thank you!

Only our second time eating out since March. We have had both the coolinary and Reveillon at Muriels for years so we couldn’t pass it up. This time was a bit disappointing. The sweet potato soup was fantastic but neither main course was thrilling. The fish was dry and the only flavor was from the onions. The pork chop was tender but rather flavorless. Creme brulee was good but the bread pudding was too heavy. Maybe next year!

I love Muriel’s. From the staff and the friendliness with their impeccable service to the food itself and the cocktails, this is one of my favorites when I am in the French quarter several times a year. I brought someone who had never been before and she couldn’t quit talking about how great her entree was. Coolinary is a great idea which allows people to eat so reasonably priced and sample much of the menu.

This was such a fun dining experience! We loved the food- ordered the coolinary dinners- salad, pork chops and cremé brûlée & turtle soup, shrimp and grits and bread pudding. Service was on point. Outside balcony seating was great. The building itself has so much history and is absolutely beautiful! Highly recommend Muriel’s during your New Orleans visit for fine dining. It was one of our top 3 restaurants out of the many we’ve eaten at!

My goodness! Amazing food in a location so perfect they could get away with serving just mediocre fare. BUT THEY DON'T! Frizzeled leeks? Yes please! Pesto linguine that'll leave you saying "I can't believe I ate the whole thing... and yet I can!" Leave room for the flourless chocolate torte!
