My friends and I were in NOLA for a bachelor party. We did not plan any dinner outings since we were not certain when and where to go for dinner. We were incredibly impressed by the ambiance and service. The courtesy of our staff completed our dining experience. The food was some of the best we had during out trip. I will definitely be going back when I return.
Find another place- so many other great resturants
We were rushed the portions were small- so many other great restaurants in New Orleans- Do not waste your time

Muriel's has been the best meal we got in NOLA.... The restaurant is great, the décor is different from one room to the other. But the Food is Incredible!!!

Too bad we couldn't go upstair... they had a private party! :-( Next time may be

We thoroughly enjoyed the Jazz Brunch - isn't that what Sunday mornings are for?! The fried green tomato stack (embedded withshrimp) was amazing, as was the sweet potato bisque! Pecan crusted puppy drum served on a bed of sauteed spinach, crumbled pecans and crawfish, drizzled with a "light" lemon -butter garlic sauce!!!!! OMG

Had not been there before but saw good reviews on OpenTable and they were right. We had the pre-fixe and differen things between my husband and I, and all were great.

Food was very good - we had the fixed-price menu: soup, crepes, pork chops, shrimp, flourless chocolate cake. Drinks were very good. Service was very good. The restaurant has a nice ambiance. Noise levels were higher than desired. Overall a good experience, and I'd visit Muriel's again on a future visit to New Orleans.

Excellent location and beautiful surroundings made for a lovely dining experience. Friendly servers were an added plus. All six in our party ordered a different entree and everyone thought his or her choice was delicious. Would definitely go back to Muriel's.
I own a gallery just a couple of blocks from Muriel's on Jackson Square. I send people there every day. It's the best lunch and value for lunch in New Orleans. Great food and I think they have the best Ed beans and rice anywhere. I highly recommend this restaurant and I and my staff eat there regularly. Go enjoy!!!

Spectacular experience. Great service. The blackened fish was perfect. I had the pork chop with collard greens and sweet potato. All were amazing. So was the chocolate cake desert. Big thank you to the friend that recommended it. Can't wait to go back.
A Lovely Brunch
We dined at Muriel's for brunch this past Sunday. They had a nice band playing jazz music, which was lovely. We were not really dressed appropriately, we had on shorts and t-shirts, but were treated as if we were. It was great fun to people watch and see all of the ladies' nice outfits. I will definitely dress better next time! I had the duck hash and my friends had the Muriel's omlette. The duck hash was very, very good and my friends said that their entrees were great as well. I've dined at Muriel's before for dinner and thought that it was just "meh". This was a completely different experience. It was great! I'd definitely go for brunch again and may give them another shot for dinner too.
This restaurant has a freat location at Jackson Square and is in a historic building, lots of quaintness to it. We went for the Sunday jazz brunch, all ala carte. The music was very good, not overpoweringly loud like some places can be. That being said, the food was good, absolutely nothing wrong with it, but with the dining options in NO where so much is fantastic, I don't know if just "being good" is enough.

I know the restaurant was busy - they were hosting a wedding reception upstairs - but still, the service was way too rushed. I was on my own (a business traveller) and I would hardly finish one course before they would bring the next one. On the other hand, I had to cancel my glass of wine, as by the time they brought one from the bar, I was done eating... I was trying to eat as slowly as I could and still keep the food warm, and yet was in and out in less than 40 minutes - so much for a leisurely Saturday dinner. The food was ok, but nothing special.

We had been told by many friends that Muriel's was THE place to dine in New Orleans. We dined there this past weekend, and I must say that it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. We were seated promptly, and our food was delicious! The pork chop, sweet potatoes, and greens were perfectly cooked. All in all, it was a perfect dining experience.
Better than average
Nice location off Jackson Square. Solid offering, but nothing earth-shattering. Mixed clientele. Staff was slow to engage, but once they realized we were there, were very attentive.

Food was great - service was extremely slow
Fabulous food, but.......
As usual, the food was delicious...fresh, creative and impeccably served. However, the dining room was full, and the other guests were "energetic," to the point where we couldn't hear the conversation at our own table! Prob chops were tender, savory and the sauce made you want to lick the plate! Definitely would go back, but maybe a later reservation than 6:30pm would be a little quieter!
Dinner at Muriel's
Went to Muriel's on a busy Friday night with friends. They have consistently been delivery 5 star service and fool. Love the crawfish crepes and the duck is truly outstanding. Everyone truly enjoyed their meal and experience. One of the best restaurants in New Orleans and underrated at that!
Very good but terribly noisy
Our group of 6 dined at Muriel's on a busy Saturday night at 7 pm. We found the food really good and the wait staff excellent. We asked for a table by a wall because of concerns about the noise level . Our request was not accommodated so we were seated in the middle of one of the front dining rooms and found it very difficult to hear one another. Our waiter almost had to yell to so we could hear her. Suggest not putting larger tables in the center of the room.

We each had the three-course meal, and the turtle soup was amazing, along with the Bayou-baisse. Great service. Excellent food. Good location. I am very picky about restaurants and food in general. Muriel's gets a hearty recommendation. Price was solid, too. Did not break the bank. Happy to have eaten there, and they made me an excellent virgin cocktail since I couldn't have alcohol that day.
Great Food and Service
My daughter and I were traveling from Northeast Tennessee to Houston for her new job as an engineer. When we stopped for lunch in Birmingham, Alabama, we decided that we were going to make a little detour to New Orleans since she had never been there. We used Open Table on my phone to make a reservation for dinner at Muriel's. We got there a little early, but they had our names clearly on the computer and they seated us immediately. We had been traveling for ten hours and were under dressed, but the reception staff treated us nicely. Due to my daughter's concerns, they put us on the side by the window. It was a perfect location as she did not feel people were looking at her. She started with the Gumbo and I had Turtle Soup. Both were excellent, but the gumbo was probably the best choice. I had the Bayoubraise, which is like a New Orleans seafood stew. It loved it. My daughter got the Drum with pecans and crayfish, which was also delicious. For desert, she got the Bread Pudding and I got the Creme Brulee. It was one of the best I have ever had, but her Bread Pudding was out of this world! Our waiter was attentive and made excellent suggestions. We did a little sightseeing and returned to the garage for our car. When the valet brought it to us, he asked if we had been on a cruise because the back seat was loaded to the roof with all of her belongings. We told him, "No, we just stopped for dinner on our long road trip." He laughed and said we were crazy, but a great choice. He asked if it was worth it and we responded, "Absolutely!" We then continued on our way to Houston. Thanks Muriel's and Open Table for creating an impulsive dinner that we will never forget.

Had a group of friends from several states gather in New Orleans for a mass birthday celebration for all of us, and we chose Muriel's based on past pleasant experiences. It was the perfect choice. Service was excellent, food superb. I had the pecan-encrusted drum with lemon butter sauce. It was exquisite and extraordinary. As a French Quarter resident, I expect the spectacular when I dine out, but even for sophisticated New Orleans tastes, the meal was exceptional. All the others in the party raved with similar enthusiasm for the dishes of their choice. Looking forward to the next experience at Muriel's. Try it...you'll like it!

Had a fabulous anniversary celebration dinner 4 years ago so expected to be similarly impressed. But, everything we had this time was just average including the wait staff. Too many good restaurants in NOLA to try this venue again anytime soon.

I try to get to Muriel's each time I travel to New Orleans because it never fails to delight me, and this time was no exception. It remains one of the best restaurants in a restaurant-heaven city.
Nothing short of excellent food
Food is excellent. Because this is an expensive restaurant, I view Muriel's for special occasions. Service was very good without hovering. Each course was paced so the food could be enjoyed over a good period of time - in this case 2 plus hours. Live music was a pleasant background, with the performing jazz group moving to a different room every half hour. The turtle soup was very good, but could have used more seasoning. I had the rack of lamb which was perfectly cooked and delicious. The bread pudding was a delight.
First Time Visit
Being residents of New Orleans, we had never dined at this French Quarter restaurant, until Mother's Day. We had heard very good reviews from friends, so we decided to make reservations and try the cuisine. Being it was Mother's Day, there was a pre-fixe menu, consisting of an appetizer, entree and dessert. Both appetizers, the crawfish crepes (which were highly recommended) and the mushroom linguine, were excellent and were served hot. The entrees were the bayoubaise, with lump crabmeat, oysters, shrimp, crawfish balls and mussels was unbelieveable. This was served over orzo with a tomato based broth. The other entree was the rib eye, which was quite large for a pre-fixe menu item. It was cooked to perfection and again, both entrees were served hot. The desserts were a good complement to the meals and included the bread pudding topped with whiskey sauce and red velvet petit fours. The service was excellent and our table was well attended throughout the meal. We were not rushed while dining, making this an excellent dining experience. We would highly recommend Muriel's to locals and tourists, alike.
We went for Mother's Day brunch and it was perfect! The food was great and they had a few groups coming around to each room to play music while we ate. I would definitely recommend to anyone. Would love to go back for dinner or even just to hang out and have drinks!
