Very nice efficient staff. Food was very good. My friends really enjoyed the bread pudding and I especially enjoyed my flourless chocolate cake! Very good shrimp & grits. The negative was that it was extremely loud the night we were there, maybe because there were several parties over 6.

Had dinner on 10/24. We were a few minutes early for our reservation but the restaurant was able to accommodate us immediately. Waitress was very attentive without being annoying. We all dined off the prix fixe menu. Food was amazing and a nice value as well. Highly recommend it.

Dinner was delicious. One of us ordered for an appetizer the Seafood Gumbo, the other the turtle soup. We switched midway. The gumbo was good, but the turtle soup surprisingly fantastic. We each then got the Tuna, lightly seared. It came perfectly prepared and delightful. Our only complaint might be that the food came too quickly, so we were not able to linger, but there is nothing about the food or restaurant we were unhappy with. if you are a New Orleans, French Quarter tourist, we think you will find this a good choice.

A pleasant experience at Muriel's in January led us to make a brunch reservation last Sunday. The ambience was lovely and music nice. However, poor service made the experience disappointing . We were seated promptly for our 1;45 reservation and Gary,our server, placed napkins on our laps with a flourish. Our order was taken, and then I requested a Ramos fizz. Our food arrived a few minutes after 2:00 and then the cocktail. Food was tasty, and we were enjoying it and good conversation until the servers began standing in the doorway near us, watching closely for us to finish. When I placed my knife across the plate to signify that I was finished, it hardly reached the plate before it was wisked away.
We did not care for dessert, but requested hot tea. Two tea cups were brought and we selected our teas. One small pot of hot water was placed on the table between us. It filled one cup and less than half of the other. At our request, our young lady server reluctantly took that pot and refilled it. At $4.00 each for tea, it does seem that each person would be served an individual pot of hot water.
Leaving a few minutes after 3:00, our experience had been less than welcoming.

My wife and I ate a Muriel's after Mass at the Cathedral on a Sunday. Our reservations were for 12:45 and they were able to seat us a little early. Our servers met us upon arrival and took care of us in very fine fashion the entire meal. Muriel's came highly recommended by Tom Fitzmorris and he was on target. We both had the Puppy Drum with pecans as an entree and I also had the Satsuma salad. Both get high marks for taste and appeal. You can expect us to be back soon!

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.
