bring your appitite – Warm, friendly staff, great location, pleanty of great food for the heartiest, recommend the duck...but not the bread pudding...but I've eaten it at Cafe Giovanni....(the best)....better than average soup and sauces...very nice experience....can't wait to go back.....
great atmosphere – I love the feeling of dining here. I food is alos great. The service is very good. They run several specials that I would recommend trying.
Service and Quality Outstanding – I've been to Muriels at least 3 times since it reopened after Katrina. It has not failed to impress me. The service and quality of food is outstanding and consistent. Many New Orleans restaurants have slower than norm service (I am a Louisiana native and my family is from NOLA). Muriel's service is excellent. I'm a repeat customer and will continue to be unless it changes.
Romantic evening out – We went in to sight see and stayed for dessert. The bar is amazing. Turtle soup, vanilla bean creme brulee and long island ice teas, my kind of place. Extensive wine list, upscale gourmet food, friendly service, and an all around great restaurant. Don't go there unless your ready to spend some money. It a great place for a romantic dinner for two. I give it a ten
User review by erikaandmatt – My husband and I went to Muriel's on an anniversary trip to New Orleans. Both of us enjoyed our meals - he had the eggplant and red pepper salad, the crabcake appetizer (we shared) and the grilled shrimp; I had the prix fixe with the pecan-crusted puppy drum as my entree (which was incredibly rich but delicious). The staff went out of their way to disreetly wish us a happy anniversary, including writing "Happy Anniversary" on my dessert plate and having other staff wish us one on the way out. The prix fixe was quite reasonable considering what we received. They also have a nice selection of half bottles, which I appreciated because my husband doesn't drink.
User review by zudnic – Enjoyed a meal at Muriel's for our anniversary. Our hotel concerige notified the restaurant that we were there for that occasion and they gave us a semi-private table and two glasses of complimentary champagne. Ambiance was good but people who disregarded the upscale nature of the place - people in cargo shorts and flip flops, as well as the party next to us having an obnoxiously loud coversation about a very inappropriate topic - detracted, but we couldn't blame the restaurant for that. We found the prix fixe menu to be a great value, as we both received a three course meal as well as a decent bottle of wine for $111 all told (including tip).
love love love this place – We go there every time we are in New Orleans (which is quite a bit). The food is absolutely fantastic and the service is always perfect. Sunday brunch is definately the time to go. It is consistently fabulous.
fun & fantastic food – You simply must make Muriel's a stop while visiting New Orleans! We had a wonderful meal and also dropped in on a rainy afternoon to enjoy their courtyard bar. There is a waiter there named Jerry Billiot who makes your visit memorable, he's so full of life you must request him if you're so lucky to be dining on a day that he works, Thanks Jerry for the tour and for the laughter!
Expected More than we got – We tried some of the more "upscale" restaurants while visiting NOLA, but I was truly disappointed with this one in, not at much as Emril's, but disappointed none the less. The food was great I'm sure for some people, but I found it not in the least as good as K-Paul's. It just didn't suit my taste, the service was EXCELLENT though and we loved the ambiance of the restaurant. Maybe if I had ordered something different, but the menu wasn't all that extensive and I thought I would love what I ordered, but I didn't, my boyfriend liked his food, but again, we could have skipped this place and went to K-Paul's twice even though it would have been a little more expensive than Muriel's. Worth trying, but I won't be going back.
All-time Favorite Restaurant – What can I say about this restaurant which has become a second home to us? Exceptional food, attentive staff, ambiance galore, right in the heart of the French Quarter. Great for tourists and locals alike.
Try the shrimp over fried green tomatos, the turtle soup, the duck confit salad, the scallops (appetizer or entree), tournedos, lamb, pork chops, tuna, goat cheese crepes. You can't go wrong! And top it all off with the city's best creme brulee! Yum!
The friendly staff is very helpful in making suggestions and helping to make your experience a favorable one.
We recommend this restaurant to all of our bed & breakfast guests and tell them if they only have one meal in the city, this is the place to have it. We recommend dinner over lunch.
And if you have a large party, be sure to ask about the magnificent private dining rooms upstairs.
