I wandered in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is an oasis among the bustle of Jackson Square. White table cloths, superior service and an elegant wine list and food offerings. Since I was there at lunch, I ordered the Cobb salad with...More

Loved this experience, but you will go away hungry and it's pricey. However everything was very good and the service was excellent.

Our waiter & co made sure we knew how inconvenient we were for asking for separate checks. Like that never happens in a town with a huge convention center. Anyway, that wasn't pleasant but the food was good.

This place was phenomenal! Every single item we ordered was amazing. The staff was very attentive and the atmosphere was calm and relaxing. I had the sea bass and for dessert ordered the bread pudding. Best bread pudding I’ve ever had. Hands down.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

The Bistro at Muriel’s Jackson Square offers New Orleans classics like Gumbo, BBQ Shrimp, Oysters "Muriel", Turtle soup, Fried Gulf Shrimp Po-boy, Crabmeat Imperial, Shrimp Remoulade & contemporary Creole cuisine like Pecan Crusted Drum & Wood Grilled Tuna while the Courtyard Bar is the perfect place to drop by for drinks & appetizers. The Séance Lounge is the place for a relaxed, comfortable meeting before or after dining. Comprised of two areas, The Outer & 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 best bordellos! The Inner Séance is the preferred domain of the resident ghost, Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan, & is the perfect spot for an intimate conversation & a drink amongst its plush surroundings.
