We were in a group of 3 on business travel wanting an excellent NOLA meal. Muriel's was a great choice. The Prix Fixe 3 course menu for $39.95 was awesome. Good choices as well as a nice regular menu. Drink prices are reasonable and were delicious. Overall a very nice experience. Would definitely recommend.

I had the Table D'Hote (fixed price) meal with the Crawfish & Goat Cheese Crepes, the Bayoubaisse, and the Flourless Chocolate Cake. It was all delicious, and the goat cheese crepes were particularly phenomenal. I would also recommend the Pimm’s Royale cocktail.

We absolutely LOVED the food, ambiance, wait staff, and music during our late Sunday brunch. We had a two-year old and her parents with us, and she was treated well by the staff and musicians. It was by far the best place we ate while we were in New Orleans. It was the only place I would actually return to dine if we should find ourselves back in NOLA.

The manager was super rude. We were a large group and they wouldn't separate our checks even though they had confirmed that they would via telephone the day before.

Pecan encrusted Puppy Drum over a crawfish and spinach relish, shrimp and stone-ground grits cake, creme brûlée ..... food was excellent. Service however was a little slow and inattentive on a summer Saturday night. We will return.

A must go to restaurant in NOLA. The cocktail list is filled with surprisingly fresh and delicious choices. For entrees, I had the shrimp and grits - outstanding!! So much better than your traditional shrimp and grits - divine creole shrimp bisque and topped with a light yet tart tomato relish!! My husband had the bayoubaisse and devoured every piece of fresh seafood - be sure to order extra crawfish with that dish. For dessert we had flourless chocolate cake and creme brûlée - exceptional!! We were seated in the bistro room which was perfect - great view of Jackson Square, comfortable seating and not too loud - all around wonderful experience!!!

Every time I get to dine at Muriel's, I get excited weeks in advance. The service is always excellent, their drinks are strong and delicious, and the food is always a knock out.

I missed going to Muriel's on my last visit to NOLA, so I was thrilled to have lunch there on this visit. The hostess and wait staff were very attentive. They made me feel like we where special guests. Our Bloody Mary's were tasty and had the perfect kick. The Gorgonzola Cheesecake appetizer was like desert - a slice of cheesecake! It was heaven. The filet was cooked to perfection with well cooked string beans. We were not rushed. It was a bit noisy as there were two tables of employees celebrating a retirement. Next time I'll know to check out the room I am placed in and ask for one of their many other rooms. The bar area is large yet cozy. A definite return visit is a must!

Loved the eclectic decor. We were greeted nicely and shown to our table immediately. Our waiter was adorable and the menu awesome. The food was wonderful as well! Overall, just an excellent dining experience - not to be missed!

They are really missing the bar at this restaurant compared to the other choices in New Orleans. I felt cheated that we chose this restaurant, for some it was their only dining experience in New Orleans and that is sad... TripAdvisor couldn't be more wrong, don't choose this place. Service was indifferent, slow and the food was a bit better than banquet food.

We've made a tradition of going to Muriel's for our anniversary. We've never been disappointed. The food and service have been top notch and they always try to accommodate our table request. Only one small complaint. The staff knew it was our anniversary and they gave us each a nicely prepared and presented fried oyster that we hadn't ordered. It was wonderful but I was surprised to see a charge for it on the bill. It was only a few dollars so I didn't say anything but thought it was a little tacky to charge for this gift.

We booked and they were running 15 minutes late in the main dining room, but we were offered a table in the courtyard seating area which was fine.Our waiter was magnificent. He was very happy to offer suggestions, and they were spot on. I had the double cut pork chop which was one of their signature dishes and very much lived up to it's reputation. I highly recommend it. My colleagues also enjoyed their dishes and the drinks were pretty good too. Our bill was very reasonable, as they gave us a discount because of the convention we wee in town for. I'd very much recommend it even without the discount.

This was recommended by a member of staff at our hotel in New Orleans. It was Father's Day on the day we wanted to visit but we wanted to experience a New Orlean's Sunday Jazz Brunch before we left the city the following day. Wonderful food and staff although it did feel as if we were being pushed through quite quickly to get more covers in which may or may not have had something to do with it being Father's Day! I would class it as fine dining with a price to match.

We went for Father's Day Brunch and to say the most, we were totally underwhelmed. We had not been to Murel's in quite a few years, but recalled it better than this occasion. The food was not up to par. I had eggs benedict, one of my favorites. but this eggs benedict was placed on a VERY small biscuit cut in two that was undercooked and doughy in the middle. the plate looked empty with that and 5 green beans and nothing more. my son got the omelet and he was not at all impressed with the presentation nor the quality. the server was nice enough to get the chef to prepare over easy eggs and bacon with biscuits for my husband, but the grits tasted like over salted popcorn. not good for the price, in fact next time we will go to Cracker Barrel and get better quality for a breakfast/brunch.

Had the chance for lunch here today and can I just say WOW. Do yourself a favor and order the goat cheese and crawfish crepes ! The flavor was incredible and the perfect start to our meal. I enjoyed my Eggs Benedict but was wishing I had ordered the stuffed mirliton that my niece ordered. The texture and flavor was spot on. Our waitress was knowledgable and very good. A New Orleans treat worth the price.

After years of not going, we finally did and were wondering what made us wait so long. The food is top-notch and the service matches. We had a great lunch on a rainy, cold June day. The waitress found a tea that my daughter had 4 cups of to warm her up. We also got to taste a true Creole tomato and it is the best, not like any tomato I have ever had.

Food was delicious! Service was excellent. Had a reservation at 8:30 on a Friday night. Walked right in with no wait. Would eat here again in a heart beat.

My husband and I went to Muriel's for the first time to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, and they made it a wonderful night to remember! We wanted something romantic with delicious food, and they delivered more than we expected. We may go there every year for our anniversary. It was so special!

Fine food, great flavors and reasonable price. I was extremely pleased to get such fine food at a reasonable price in the heart of the tourist-filled French Quarter. I had a special Creole tomato fixed-price meal, and each dish, including the dessert (with tomato jams and popsicle!) featured this tomato prepared in a creative, appealing and tasteful way. Highly recommended.

We were on a holiday in New Orleans and met with another couple for dinner. Muriel's came highly recommended and we were looking forward to a lovely evening. Our beverage server was not personable from the start and the server was the same: they wouldn't smile or Make small talk which we tend to like in a server. Our friend was reading the history of Muriel's and there was mention of a ghost so she asked the beverage server what that was all about. His reply was "Well, if I have to tell you....." making it like it was a chore. The food was delicious, we ordered from the Tomato Festival menu and the Table d'Hote. You must order the crepes as an appetizer...to die for! The Shrimp with Grits was phenomenal and we all raved about the meals. Tomato Jam cookies? Tart and sweet, laced with violet, yumm. Despite the service we had a very nice time and would recommend the restaurant.

Delicious meal and friendly service....we had the fish selections on the menu and the taste and presentation were great....our only negative was the desert which we didn’t feel was at the same high standard as the rest of the meal. We would definitely come back though as the mains were great....fabulous cheese bread with our meal too.
Best Meal of my Life

The food was delicious, I got the pork chops the waiter suggested and he was spot on. Great choice. My girlfriend's pasta was also very very good. Great location and fun staff. We will return to done again soon.
Typical New Orleans
The location is in Jackson Square. The restaurant's décor is what one expects from New Orleans fine dining. The food was very good and so was the service. Like most good restaurants it is a little pricy, but worth the experience.
We had the pleasure of visiting Muriels to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The restaurant is incredibly gorgeous and comfortable. We both had the 3 course Prix Fixe dinner which was very reasonably priced and portion sizes were generous. Over the course of our dinner we had 5 members of the wait staff and management attending to us; all very attentive, friendly and fun but not imposing upon the evening. We would highly recommend Muriels to anyone visiting New Orleans and will do so to friends and family.

Excellent food and service in a wonderful dining room with elegant southern charm. Very knowledgable wait staff ! Located in a very busy area in Jackson Square easy to get to! Highly recommended
We loved our lunch here and James was a wonderful server. Food was delicious. Had the pork chop with red beans and rice and ate every bite. We were stuffed. Also enjoyed a Bloody Mary and martini. Friends still had room for bread pudding. Said it was amazing. Will be back every visit!
