This restaurant refused to take any precautions or even attempt to serve me. My group still ate here and the gluten free people enjoyed their meals!! I’m glad that I knew ahead of time and didn’t risk it!

The turtle soup was delicious, but could have used a little spice. Our second dish was shrimp and grits. The grits are delicious, but the shrimp tasted weird... the creme brûlée and chocolate cake are the bomb! My husband said the bread pudding was so good but not GF.

Very nice restaurant with good service. My daughter has celiac and our waiter Kendall was very helpful in making suggestions. She has shrimp and grits and he added crawfish for her and she loved it.

Went for thanksgiving day lunch. Very accommodating for gluten intolerance. Had coffee brined roasted duck with grits with red eye gravy and broccoli. Nice experience and wonderful ambiance. There was a special holiday menu so I don’t know what normal offerings would be. Items weren’t marked GF but waitress asked chef about accommodations.

I gently mentioned to our server that I was Celiac and that my husband was not. She explained that I should in no way, shape or form dine with them. She went on to explain those with Nima sensors had a fit when attempting to dine, as just the air set the sensors off. (I have not used a Nima sensor and remain suspect of their accuracy.) She further explained that because they baked all of their bread in house, which the majority of "nice" restaurants do, gluten is most often aerosolized. (Hence the Nima sensors having a heyday.) My husband offered that we leave. I insisted he have a quick bite (he was famished). Bread (that was apparently so delicious, he had a visceral response) was placed on his side of the table and a small plate of goat cheese stuffed crepes were soon in front of him. (I don't believe he actually chewed.) Their bar did have Titos. I settled on a martini and was incredibly mad at myself for, again, not researching and vetting establishments. Any perceived vitrol was most definitely not aimed at you, but instead a warning, should anyone blindly trust without verification. Standards within establishments can change as easily as the wind. We have witnessed it within our own state. I was very appreciative our initial waitperson was honest with us. She could have just as easily served me and hoped any possible reaction would be long past our departure. I wasn't as thrilled with our other waitperson, as there was a strong vibe of "oh look at the gluten free martyr". (I despise this.)

GLUTEN FREE Review Muriel’s was fantastic! Once we arrived and got seated, I asked for the gf menu and was presented with it. (Photo attached) They have some many options and they are so good. I couldn’t decide between the pork chops Or the shrimp and grits (both gf!)— so i got one and my husband got the other!! With normal meals, the offer a 3 course dinner for $42 per person. They don’t have that availability listed on the gf menu, but they are happy to do it!

I started out with the Muriel’s house salad. It’s presented well and is very tasty. The fresh parmesan on top was perfect.

I moved on to the Double cut pork chops. The meat was perfect and tender— very flavorful. I wasn’t as big of a fan f the potatoes and greens that come with it, but there was nothing bad.

Next time, I will order the shrimp and grits. Phenomenal. So creamy and delectable and a great portion!

For dessert was creek brûlée 💛 my favorite dessert and their vanilla bean one did not disappoint.

(My husband had their goat cheese crepes when I had the salad. (Crepes are not gf!!) and he was very pleased and cannot wait to have them again.)

We were waited on by Derek & Tiffany. They were wonderful waiters, making conversation and fun with us!

We will definitely be back soon!

This is our fifth trip to New Orleans and I have eaten at Muriel’s at least 15 times without a problem. They have a separate gluten free menu with several options available and their daily soup special is typically gluten free. Service is food knowledgeable and attentive regarding celiac and make you feel at ease. The roast chicken, shrimp with herbsaint cream, and the crime brûlée are favorites. Highly recommend.

Upon entering the restaurant I told the hostess I have celiacs disease. She politely informed me the kitchen staff wouldn’t be changing gloves or doing anything special. So far not looking good. I ordered the vegetable curry and a salad off the gluten free menu. They bring things out on special plates with a red ring to indicate gluten free so they do have a system in place. My salad arrived without croutons so that was a plus. However, upon returning from the bar later, my veggie curry was in a nice red ringed bowl, flanked by 3 pieces of garlic toast. WTF?? I took the curry bowl off the plate and my wife told the waitress I couldn’t have the bread so she yanked that away. I told the manager that the gf items should not come with gluten (bread) and he agreed. It’s too bad b/c I ate here last year and everyone was very cautious and seemed genuinely concerned about keeping things gf. Maybe management changed but this year was a lousy experience for me. It seems like gf is not a big concern for them anymore. I had an rsvp for the next night but I canceled that and won’t be going back.

Very good food! I got shrimp and grits, a favorite of mine. It was probably the best I’ve ever had. Separate menu, with about a dozen choices. Server seemed knowledgeable and reassured me that they knew how to keep a Celiac meal safe. My meal was served in a bowl with a pattern on it that indicated it was gluten free. Low anxiety about getting glutened here. Pretty pricey, though. We skipped dessert, so I can’t speak to the quality there. But, I did not get sick! Good place to sit and chat among all the craziness that surrounds the French Market!

Muriel's is fantastic! We've eaten lunch there twice, in our short time in NOLA. Headed for a third time this evening for dinner. They've accommodated my wife's (gluten, soy, dairy, yeast, sugar/added sweetner) needs with blackened fish, both were amazing! Most certainly a good spot.

I have celiac disease and, although I brought my own food during Mardi Gras, it wasn't very substantial so I wanted real food. Other reviewers recommended Muriel's so I risked it out of frustration for real food.

Turns out, I did not get sick at all, and I'm super sensitive! One time I touched a friend's cell phone at my house, then ate a grape, and then had a celiac response. From her phone! So if I didn't get sick at Muriel's, they know what they are doing! And our server Heather was very nice about it, no attitude the way some do and was very conscientious of my options. Best creme brûlée ever!!! And my fish was fantastic. Wonderful restaurant. My companions all enjoyed their meals too. Pricy, but at least it was worth it!

Gluten free menu. Waiter said owner has family with Celiac and started providing GF dishes. Waiter said staff is aware of cross contamination and changes gloves, utensils, etc. GF orders on special plates. I had a prosciutto salad for lunch. Very good.

Gluten free menu and they will walk you through items on their menu which can be made gluten free. The staff was so confident in telling me what could be made gluten free, I worried at first. One of the dishes was a soup with pasta added in it. I was very skeptical and she went back to double checked. The pasta was added after the fact and could be left out. The food was delicious and no cross contamination.

I enjoyed a wonderful meal here. I had the pork chop with sweet potatoes and greens. It has the New Orleans taste to it. I had made a reservation online and put in the comments I needed a gluten free meal for Celiac disease. When we got there I didn't even have to ask for a gluten green menu. They brought mine along with the others. The waitress was very eager to help me. And she also recommended the creme brûlée or the flourless chocolate cake. I chose the creme brûlée and it was great! We will go back the next time we go to New Orleans. I will tell you it's a little pricy but definitely worth it.
