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.

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!

Loved the whole experience! The staff was friendly, and talked to bus about the history of the location. The food was AMAZING!
Jazzy Sunday Brunch!
Picked a winner in the Big Easy ... looking for a place to have a relaxed and quality Brunch on a Sunday afternoon ... found it at Muriel's. The historical building is beautiful and the Jazz Band was great. The staff greeted us by name and had our table ready as reserved. Varied menu with many choices to choose from ... hardest part was what to select. Food was served as ordered and with time in-between to let us enjoy the champagne! Great place for a nice Sunday Brunch for two or a large special occasion. Recommend that you make a reservation. Enjoy!
40th Anniversity Breakfast
We looked at googles 10 best restaurants in NOLA. We wanted something special for breakfast. We were not disappointed. The eggs benedict was enjoyable. The eggs sausage hash was equally enjoyable. The jazz a nice addition

I have celiac disease and was looking for a restaurant that could accommodate my dietary needs but also be great for the friends we were bringing with us. This restaurant was a hit with all of us. We will be coming again the next time we're in New Orleans.

Never disappointed. Put this on the list of must visit ever time in NOLA!

Amazing evening. Everything was perfect. Service was stellar. Waiter in training should have offered to move our table away from the door (at one point heavy rain from outside was seeping in), but experienced waitress swooped in and fixed the situation without batting an eye. Every course was delicious. Still thinking about the pork chop dish! Excellent gluten free menu with knowledgeable staff.

We are locals and were entertaining friends from New Jersey this is one of our favorites in NOLA and they didn't disappoint. All aspects were on point.
All around great...
As anticipated, everything was great. We were running bit late (10 minutes) but a quick phone call assured we would still have our table. We were lucky enough to sit by a window and got to see a 2nd line for a wedding at the cathedral as well as a parade. We allowed two hours for dinner before the theater and needed the time. We had appetizers, entrees and dessert and were given the time to enjoy each course. The food was superb as was service. The noise level was a little higher than average while we were there as there was a large group there celebrating a 30th birthday. We cannot wait to return!

I went to New Orleans with the plan to eat gumbo at every chance. Theirs was the best! Of course the building is interesting, but it also was a very pleasant dining experience. I can't say the same for some of the long established restaurants we visited that seem to be resting on their past reputations.
Nice FQ restaurant
Most places in the French Quarter cater to tourists. I've lived in NOLA for 20 years and this is a great place for locals and tourists alike.
My Muriel Experience
Well, my wife and her sisters have been there in the past and bragged about the menu items. My wife wanted to go back for our anniversary so I could see what they had experienced. Well, for one thing, the menu items and prices, apparently change for diner. I almost left before ordering because I really didn't see anything on the menu that really attracted me and for the price they were asking, I couldn't see me eating there. My wife was surprised too with the limited and expensive choices they had to choose from. To sum it up, we would have rather gone to Long Horn, Outback or even Ruth's Chris Steak house for the $115.00 that it cost me at Muriels.
Good drinks, food just okay.
The history and ambiance of the building was amazing. The food, not so much. As a tourist I would definitely walk in and look around, maybe have a drink at the bar. The food was not worth the large bill.

One of the best places to eat! The Craw fish and goat cheese crepes are a must have... So good I had thoughts of licking the plate lol. One can't go wrong with anything served here.

I had my doubts with Muriel's being 'popular', and right on Jackson Square. The reviews were mixed, but mostly good -so I stuck with it. So thrilled we did. I requested a table with a view and got it! The service was impeccable, the food expertly prepared and presented. Our server was knowledgeable (Courtney), offered suggestions and had a fantastic personality. It was expensive but reasonable overall. The pork chop was indeed awesome, the beet salad, the crawfish crepes, and the creme brulee were all fantastic/memorable. Go there. Enjoy it. It is a lovely NOLA experience.

This was our first dining experience in New Orleans. The location was tremendous, the food was delicious, and the service was top-notch. I recommend the locally prepared drum fish. There is a second floor patio that overlooks Jackson Square which I recommend for a drink.

Dining at Muriel's was very pleasant evening that didn't break the bank. The shrimp and grits I had was flavorful, with not over cooked shrimp and a lovely sauce. I didn't like the grits cake, but that was a minor issue. The tomato soup was excellent, and the flourless chocolate cake was delicious. A great gluten-free meal for a reasonable price. Excellent service, and quiet enough to hear each of my three dining partners.
New Orleans gem
Great NOLA find in the French Quarter. We were very happy with spectacular service and amazing food!
