Creole / Cajun / Southern
The Bistro at Muriel’s Jackson Square offers contemporary Creole cuisine with New Orleans classics like Seafood Gumbo, Turtle soup, Shrimp & Grits and Wood Grilled Pork Chop while the Courtyard Bar is the perfect place to drop by for drinks and appetizers. The Séance Lounge is the place for a relaxed, comfortable meeting before or after dining. Comprised of two areas, The Outer Seance and The Inner Séance, the Séance also tells the story of a mystic checkered past. The Outer Séance addresses the New Orleans era of Storyville when Muriel's Jackson Square was one of the French Quarter's top bordellos! The Inner Séance is the preferred domain of the resident ghost, Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan; is the perfect spot for an intimate conversation or a drink among its plush surroundings. The 170 foot wrap-around balcony is a splendid spot for enjoying our specialty cocktails or private label Napa wines.

    Staff was rude and made little attempt at making the experience pleasant. Rushed the meals out and drinks were late coming out. The wait staff seemed confused at best. The food was mediocre at best with little taste. My pork chop was dry and I wasn’t even asked how I would like it done. You could tell the kitchen rushed the plates out. For the money charged it was definitely not worth it. Total tourist trap at this point.

    Amazing meal and service. Our waiter Travis was fantastic helping us choose our dishes as was Lydia who helped us with our cocktail choices. We started with the Pimms Cup and then moved to some great wine. We had amazing appetizers especially the onion tart. This was followed by the pecan crusted drum, with a fabulous lemon beurre blanc and an incredible pork chop with this terrific blackberry mustard sauce. The sauces here were unbelievably good. We finished with bread pudding in a rum sauce. All of this was part of their table d’hote a three course menu at a great price. Highly recommend this New Orleans restaurant but you need reservations made early.

    Steer clear. Overrated and underperforming. Menu was very limited which is fine if the limited items were excellent. They were mediocre at best. Beautiful building and restaurant. Service was terrible. Had empty glasses pushed to the front of the table. The “drink” server, the “food” server, and the floor manager all looked at the empty glasses and continued walking. Very apparent that they were just looking to turn tables. And “smart casual dress” was a joke. Mostly shorts, tee shirts and tennis shoes. Would not recommend.

    The brunch was outstanding! I think the only thing that would have made it better is if we hadn't been seated at a table RIGHT when you walk in the dining room so it felt a little crowded, sort of like being in the hallway. The tables along the edges looked wonderful, so I'd request those if you are able. Overall though - one of the best brunches I've been to food wise! Highly recommend, and would love to go back.

    I did enjoy the experience, but the food was just not what I expected. Appetizer was tepid and the Entree was overcooked and almost felt and tasted warmed over a couple of times and the dessert (bread pudding) was fabulous.

    My wife and I ordered the 3 course meal and it was fantastic. We had the onion tart and the goat cheese and shrimp crepes as our appetizers, followed by the shrimp and grits and pecan crusted drum. The bread pudding and flourless chocolate cake went back to the hotel with us for a late night snack. ;-) From start to finish, it was a wonderful experience. The food was exceptional and the servers were attentive without being intrusive.

    Muriel’s was fabulous. Window table so we could watch Jackson Square goings on winding down. Friendly and attentive service. Killer food. A delicious Spanish wine we couldn’t find in any of several places. If you get a chance, take a drink upstairs to the seance bar. It’s not a full service bar but a couple rooms on their banquet floor decorated to help the resident spirit feel at home. It’s worth a few minutes and it’s very New Orleans. Way fun. Seriously, Muriel’s is way more than a cool period room, a ghost story, and a great meal. It’s an extraordinary dining experience.
