Muriel's Jackson Square Ratings and Reviews
We had a wonderful brunch at Muriel's. The food was great and the atmosphere was wonderful - it's a beautiful restaurant! My husband ordered the Eggs Veney, which is their version of eggs benedict - the boudin patty was delicious, it had a little spicy kick but it was SO tender. I ordered the Louisiana Duck & Chaurice Hash, it too was so delicious. The hollandaise sauce was the best I've ever had - I could drink it LOL! I'd recommend Muriel's to anyone. If I go back to NOLA, I'd like to try it for lunch or dinner.
My family met here for a family meal before everyone flew home to their seperate destinations. The dining room was spacious, food was spectacular and the service impeccable. The decor was tasteful and interesting! The jazz band was delightful, not too loud, and complimented everything else! It was a great ending to a great weekend with our kids, who are adults now!
Shared the three course price fix plus two additional appetizers with a friend. The pecan crusted baby drum was THE BEST fish I've had in YEARS! Impeccably prepared, I'll be talking about that entree for a long long time. Management checked tables and accommodated a request to see the "ghost table" despite a private party upstairs. Excellent.
We had a very nice dinner for Valentine's Day. We had the Valentine's Day menu and the food was excellent.
The service was mostly great, however, when my entrée showed up, the wine that came with the pairing came after I was half into my meal. That aside the service was very good.
The room was very loud and not very intimate. But the Decour was very nice and elegant. The building itself is historical as it is in Jackson Square.
Overall it was a very good dining experience and I would recommend it to anyone, especially for special occasions.
I visited with my husband for Valentines Day, and we had a wonderful time. Everything was top notch. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the goat cheese crepes and crawfish appetizer. My filet melted in my mouth and was paired beautifully with a Cabernet Sauvignon by recommendation. I finished with creme brûlée that was also fabulous. Service was excellent, available but not intrusive.
We dine out often at restaurants at Muriel's level & above. Have almost never felt so intruded on by staff; 3 different people at our table multiple times - not counting water refills. Also never felt so rushed to leave. Dining room was 1/3 empty and we were clearly being urged to finish & leave. Nice menu, very good food, nice dining room that would have been very relaxing. But management may want to examine their service philosophy.
Great food and great atmosphere. The only vegetarian entree option was a curry based dish, which was unfortunate for my curry hating vegetarian friend. She was disappointed but we loved the zucchini, asparagus and they offered to make the goat cheese crepes without the crawfish. The other entrees were amazing though!
This is avery authentic restaurant in the heart of French quarter. Service and food were excellent, location fantastic.
The only issue is that it was very noisy but that is offset buy other good aspects of this place.
I would definitely come back again for visit and recommend to others..
In town for girlfriends weekend. The brunch was great, vegetarian options were available and tasted was incredible. The bread pudding is a must. Ambiance was also fantastic, we were seated near the jazz band and it felt like a private concert. Will return on next trip.
Our food was very good. Michelle our server assistant was excellent. James our server, was a bit rushed. I think 4 tables is probably his max looked like he had at least 6 tables. . That way he could slow down a bit and improve his service technique and make my dining experience better. I typically tip at least 20% but today only 15%. I would definitely go back.
Right in the middle of the famed Jackson Square, we enjoyed being able to relax midday at a pleasant sit down restaurant. During our first visit (yes, we went back!) we enjoyed a view of the square. We loved their 2 course lunch which included a glass of wine for $4! The lunch course for the special was limited but I had the shrimp creole during my first visit and the maritilada the second day. I liked the shrimp creole more. My wife had the catfish twice! Of course I had a taste and it was very good. Service was friendly and attentive. Since we were in New Orleans, we had to try the King Cake; however, we were not big fans as it was doughy and very sweet. We finished most of it just the same! A nice restaurant in a very good location if you are exploring the French Quarter.
We wanted to eat here after learning about Pierre Antoine on a ghost tour. The atmosphere was great and service was top notch. After dinner, we checked our Pierre's table and walked around the swanky parlor upstairs. Muriel's is a great restaurant and we highly recommend it!
Love this place for their Jazz brunch. Very attentive service and they were happy to tell us about the haunted history behind the place too. Jazz musicians are very good and switch between rooms so you can switch between chatting and listening to some music. We had a window table so it makes for good people watching too. The brunch 3 course meal seems like a good deal. We went with the Ala-carte option though and ordered some delicious breakfast beverages. All in all a must try spot for dinner or brunch - a NoLa tradition.
While visiting Nola for my 40th birthday, my daughter's birthday, and my son's deployment (he just got notice of deployment & in the 82nd Airborne) we thought we would celebrate here. Biggest mistake ever. As their food choices weren't all that great to begin with, the noise from 2 parties was so loud that I couldn't even here anybody at my table. These people next to us were drunk, partying, standing up, and yelling nonstop. One of the waitresses even came over and said she was sorry, people are complaining about it. You think that the 5 managers walking around doing nothing would say something. Nope! After spending 200 dollars and talking to the manager about the situation, he said, "What do you want me to do about the noise, I can't control it," then said to me, "Goodbye!" Then he proceeded to laugh in my face. You can't even be serious... I've been to plenty of fine dining restaurants, and I know they can tell a party to please respect other people dining, it's quite loud. I understand that this man does not care if someone is having a milestone birthday or their child is deploying into a combat zone, he couldn't be more glad to insult me and my children. I would never go back to this horrible place for their mediocre food and pretentious managers who do nothing, but insult patrons. This owner should be embarrassed of his employees, as I've read more reviews of this happening to paying customers.
Dined in for a 20th anniversary - food was amazing. Seating was perfect and in a corner in front of a window facing the street. Service was helpful and friendly. However, I would have liked to speak with someone a bit more familiar with the history of NOLA and the restaurant itself. The restaurant has a rich history.
