I heard rave reviews about this restaurant and to be honest it was just okay. My order was messed up and the server seemed to be having an off day.

a lovely old building in a prime position with a cosy bar. The service was impeccable yet friendly. The food was excellent and, though relatively expensive, good valu with large portions. of special note: eggplant gnocci, vegetable po pie. Reservations essential. Highly recommended.

A good restaurant to go to in Jackson Square of French quarter. Food is good, but not as great as Brennan's restaurant. We had 2 servers, Chris was excellent, but not the other guy.

Great service, food, and drinks. The Pimm's Cup cocktail is one of the best. Shrimp Creole was fantastic and my dining companion loved her Wood Grilled Beef Tenderloin salad.

I was a bit disappointed in this trip to Muriel's. I have always found them above average in the past but this outing proved to be only average. The duck was so-so but the arancini were outstanding. My wife loved her fish dish, though. I...More

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

Not sure if there is any formal code, but my party did not wear sports coats or ties, but did wear collared shirts and long pants. I did however observe another diner wearing a t-shirt.
