Great value for money with the fixed price three course and Revillion four course menus. I had the amazing speckled trout with lump crab meat. Sticky toffee cake for dessert - amazing. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I traveled to New Orleans for our "baby moon" this past weekend. We picked Muriel's to eat at on Saturday night, which was the perfect choice. We made our reservations via Open Table on Thursday, Muriel's called the morning of to confirm, and we were seated as soon as we walked in the door Saturday night. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere was perfect; historic, beautiful and just fancy enough to make us feel like this was an actual "special occasion." The food was exquisite; we ordered off their fixed menu they serve only in December. (You couldn't have beaten the price ordering a la carte.) It was the perfect dinner for the two of us. We couldn't have been more satisfied. I recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area! You won't be disappointed. BTW- Jackson Square is right outside the front door, so get there early and stroll around the area before dinner. It was beautiful at Christmas time.

We went for the Reveillon menu and it was fabulous! A four course meal for $48 and it was worth double that! No short cuts taken for the special pricing. The oyster appetizer and the veal chop were to die for. Muriel's is a favorite any time but the Reveillon dinner was a special treat.

Thank you I had the best time there as always I eat at your restaurant at least once a month I always have a great time the food is a little bit expensive but I don't mind paying can't wait to visit your restaurant in January as always my favorite drink is margaritas and I always try a different kind last week I had the sage margarita which was great I end up getting three of them the Blackened Redfish was superb so was the eggplant soup and the lump crab and avocado salad and the crepes were delicious thanks again and see you next month

Such a pleasant experience that we went back for a second meal during our 4-day visit to New Orleans. That's saying a lot in a town full of outstanding restaurants. And, we'll be sure to return on our next visit to New Orleans.

Fabulous n authentic new orleans dishes. We had shrimp grits(best I've ever had yet) n turtle soup. The waiters were a lil goofy...they failed to brings us the silverware on time... messed our check... but they were courteous n friendly. We had a great time.

First time to enjoy Muriel's after many years of visits to the French Quarter, and we have found a new favorite which will be on our must do list for all future trips. Awesome food and service and some nice takes on local favorites and some new things to try too. We caught the very end of brunch on a Saturday and loved every minute, including the tour through the rest of the beautiful venue.

We had reservations for 8:00 the night before the Bayou Classic football game. We were footsore and tired at about 6:45 and walked in and asked if we could be seated then. They found a table and seated us immediately. My steak and sides were perfectly prepared. This was our third visit and we WILL be back!

Wanted to take my parents somewhere to eat in the quarter for their first visit and this worked out just fine. The food was tasty, but nothing special. A bit overpriced but the service was great. It's noisy but not over-crowded--lively with tourists. Not at all pretentious/raucous so a good place to take NOLA newbies. Didn't venture up to the second floor and sadly no ghost sightings.

My family ate at Muriel's on Thanksgiving. Although it was a holiday, we were seated on time and the atmosphere was relaxed and our meal was not rushed. The food and service were excellent. There were numerous menu choices besides the traditional Turkey dinner although everyone in my party ordered the turkey. I had the gnocchi which was delicious as were the crepes and gumbo according to my other family members. I look forward to returning to Muriel's on my next trip to New Orleans.
Beautiful building with a lot of history ...
Beautiful building with a lot of history. Each room has its own personality. The service was excellent (Heather and Patty were great!) and the food was as wonderful as we'd heard. The pre-fix dinner menu is an excellent deal. Three great courses for a reasonable price. Nice wine list and cocktail selection. Make sure to try the shrimp and goat cheese crepes. Sounds odd but they are amazing! We will definitely go back.

We had brunch at Muriel's. I love brunch and breakfast, and try to have brunch as often as possible. This was one of the best brunch meals I have ever eaten I had the Eggs Veney. The poached eggs were done just right, served with the perfect amount of hollandaise sauce to complement the eggs. The boudin was wonderfully subtle and the cheddar jalapeño cornbread base was very satisfying. My husband ordered gumbo to start, which was very good also. He had the Eggs Veney scrambled instead of poached, which he enjoyed immensely.
We'll definitely be back the next time we're in New Orleans.
Was very excited about dinner at Muriel' ...
Was very excited about dinner at Muriel's due to reviews I'd read. Food somewhat saved the evening as the staff was not up to par with other restaurants in the area. Host (male) was rude, bartender was curt and non-engaging, servers in the dining room appeared they could care less.
As for the food the salads were good, main courses were just okay. Didn't care to stick around for dessert.
Hoping we caught Muriel's on an off night but we won't be back to find out. Too many other great options to explore when in New Orleans to risk a night out.

Muriel's is on the edge of Jackson Square in a lively part of New Orleans. The building itself is historically interesting. There are a number of dining rooms and the layout is suitable for both groups and couples. we were sat at a window table just sufficiently away from a noisy group.
The food was excellent - the duck gumbo was particularly good. The table d'hote mane was good value with a range of options. Service was friendly and efficient.

Good food and drinks. Great atmosphere! Good for special occasions. Intimate but not too quite. Beautiful interior courtyard bar with great architecture. Friendly service and validates parking from adjacent hotel.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Muriel's and we could not have been more pleased and happy with our experience.
Everyone who helped and served us were incredibly nice, friendly and willing to share stories of site history and offered help with food selection..

I was enamoured with the rich red walls for starters and the creative way they decorated the walls with clocks and decorative plates. The food was amazing. Only had a few days in New Orleans and this was a must to eat at. They offer a pre-fix menu or a la carte, food was amazing. Service was amazing, weight is knowledgeable and friendly as well.
Best experience hands down. Food is deli ...
Best experience hands down. Food is delicious and we tried 3 appetizers and two entrees (the pecan crusted baby drum is just incredible). The crab cake is done to perfection. Service by Heather was superb. She is really excellent at what she does. We went there in fact twice during our 5 day stay in New Orleans. We have tried 4 other top restaurants and they don't compare really. We cannot recommend it enough. We will come back for sure, one day.
