Excellent New Orleans Cuisine. Somewhat randomly picked this place because of it's location on Jackson Square. Moderately upscale but comfortable. All four of us ordered different meals from Duck to Fish to Rabbit and was impressed by all. Definitely recommend.

All I can say about Muriel's is WOW. The food and service is some of the best I've ever had anywhere. The bread pudding is to die for and the goat cheese crepes are something special. The most impressive thing about Muriel's was the price. The prices are so unbelievably reasonable for such exquisite food and service. You have to try Muriel's!

The ambience and service were great. The food was well prepared but tasty but not outstanding. That said, was a great place to meet friends with well behaved children and have an enjoyable meal. The children's menu was great.

Muriel's was the highlight of our dining experience in New Orleans, and we had nothing but very good meals. The service was exceptional and friendly, the cocktails and wine were lovely, and the food was... well I've run out of superlatives. A really wonderful night all around.

We had a great time! Followed fellow reviewers and got the goat cheese crepes, and they did not disappoint! The drum was excellent, as was my husbands pork chop. I would definitely recommend to anyone heading to New Orleans!

Our visit was simply amazing. The meal was delicious and the bread pudding was the best I have ever tasted! The service was impeccable and could not have been any better. I would recommend Muriel's for a fantastic meal, great atmosphere and a very memorable dining experience.

Outstanding Jazz Brunch. The food was delicious and the service was even better. A fantastic jazz trio played classic tunes and moved about the various dining rooms making a very enjoyable morning/afternoon in a beautifully quaint, homey dining room on Jackson Square in the heart of the French Quarter.

I have eaten here before and I have never had a bad experience. The food, drinks, and atmosphere are amazing. My guests and I all ordered something different and of course we tried each other's dishes and loved them all! We will definitely be back!

Got in on a Saturday morning with last minute reservation. Excellent choice! Service was superb, food was wonderful!!! Would highly recommend this place for brunch! We haven't tried dinner yet but can't wait to go back! The goat cheese crepes were wonderful!! Then bread pudding was a little too sweet but still good! They say it's the best in NOLA but I think everyone says that;) I had the tenderloin salad... very good and dressing was delicious! SO had blackened catfish. It was so good a little kick though bc of the crystals hot sauce.

This was my wife and my second time to Muriel's and we enjoyed it just as much. Conveniently located in the heart of the French Quarter, it is a beautiful restaurant with great history...and ghosts too boot! However, I asked for my meat to be medium well and it was brought to me virtually raw. It took two more trips back to the kitchen to get it right. Chefs shouldn't push their own wishes on those of the customer. That said, Muriel's is a great experience.

Our son ate here about two years ago and told us that it was great food to eat. When we told him that we was going to New Orleans for vacation, he made reservations for us on Friday Evening and the food that we ate was very rewarding to eat and we also ate there another two times before we left.
Something has changed at Muriel's since ...
Something has changed at Muriel's since the last time I was there. The service was nice, but the quality of the food has declined. The corn and crab bisque was quite odd, with very little resemblance to the traditional dish and with a seasoning that I couldn't identify. It had been built on a dark roux and blended to cause whatever corn was present to disappear, and then a small pinch of crabmeat was tossed in. It was actually unpleasant. The other dishes were adequate, but not outstanding, and, unfortunately, a piece of plastic or glass was found in the dish of one in our party. They did offer to bring him another dish, though they did not offer to comp that dish nor to comp his and his wife's meal, as they should have. He did not choose to receive another dish, and they, of course, removed his sullied dish from his bill. Overall. The restaurant that we had hoped to show off was a disappointment and very nearly an embarrassment.

Everything about Muriel's Jackson Square was wonderful! My husband and I were there celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary! It was a very romantic and cozy place with amazing food! We highly recommend this restaurant to others!

My husband and I were in town for our anniversary, and ate at Muriel's. (1st time there) I had the bayoubaisse , my husband had the baby drum. Both were excellent! The cocktails were delicious also- the pumpkin one and Vampires Kiss were awesome!!

We had the three course meal. The turtle soup was quite surprising and was amazing. The main course was shrimp and grits, which was also outstanding. We finished with the bread pudding, a perfect end to a great evening.

We heard about this place while on our walking tour of New Orleans. The restaurant is supposedly haunted and even has a table set up for the ghost. The decor is gorgeous. The food was out of this world and the service excellent.

Have been several times and recently went during their Jazz Brunch - a jazz trio playing during their Sunday brunch hours. Was a great afternoon of good food and the music was at a comfortable level to set a great atmosphere. Can't say enough good things!

We booked Muriel's for an anniversary dinner, based on the reviews and the history of the building itself. We ordered the pork chop and bayoublaisse and both were bad. Pork chop was so dry and the bayoublaisse was just mediocre. For such a stellar restaurant, we expected stellar food and it was a flop. As we shared our experience around with others we had met, we heard similar stories. I can say, the Shrimp Goat Cheese Crepe was phenomenal. Otherwise, wander into a random restaurant that has good smells and skip Muriel's.
The hotel concierge recommended Muriel's ...
The hotel concierge recommended Muriel's when my husband and I were looking for a good restaurant that has options for me, a non-seafood eater. We started with a white bean and sausage soup that was great. We split the duck entree and three additional sides - roasted asparagus, potato hash and bean and corn succotash. For dessert we had a peanut butter/chocolate dome. The soup and succotash were my favorites of the meal. My husband loved the duck but was a bit underwhelmed by the duck fried rice underneath. I also liked that when I told the waiter my wine preference, he didn't automatically recommend the most expensive option. I noticed that the restaurants in that general area have multiple waiters per table. This threw me off at another restaurant we went to the during our trip but it worked just fine at Muriel's.
