Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse
Elegant but not StuffyWe needed to find a restaurant that was close by and fit the timeframe of a tour planned later that evening. We were concerned when we saw the sign at the door that said "Appropriate Attire Required." We were in jeans and tennis shoes for walking tour. The hostess didn't bat an eye nor did the wait staff. We were well served and the food was excellent. We didn't rate a visit from management to our table but not a huge deal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good Anniversary mealI took my wife here for a belated Anniversary meal prior to our attending a show. The meal was very good and the restaurant was very appropriate for the occasion but it was the service that was outstanding and made the whole meal that much better. This won't be our last trip here.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMcheeseburger paradiseEverything was great. I love coming here for lunch. Can't beat the burgers. Soup and salads great too.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTrip to Dickie BrennansWe had a memorable dinner at Dickie's! The food was fabulous and the attention to our table was incredible but not invasive. We will definitely return.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMdickie brennan's deliciouswent for dinner before seeing wicked. as non meat eater, was hesitant and should not have been. the garlic crusted redfish was perfect. and the portabello mushroom fries were amazing - great to share. my daughter loved the filet and soft shell crab. and the dessert she had was enough for 3 - and wonderful (3 chocolate cake). service was prompt without being obtrusive. will definitely return!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak was incredible, meltSteak was incredible, melt in your mouth good. Expectedly expensive but did permit sharing of entree which was nice since one of us was on a special diet. Service was a bit complicated. 3 people to tend to us but none readily available, so it got a bit frustrating. Meal prepped very fast... Almost too fast as we were out of dinner before we even wanted! Certainly better than keeping us waiting though!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat place for special occasion.great place for special occasion. staff was great steaks were cooked perfectly. creme brulee is to excellent5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDinerThe food we had was delicious but more importantly our waiters were WONDERFUL!

The appertisers just o.k. The 4 steaks we ordered were all cold, under cooked and un-seasoned. Bland, bland & bland. Not with the money.

I had the House Filet meal and my husband had the Andouille -Crusted Redfish - both were amazing.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't Miss With the Mrs.!Spotted Brennan's Wed eve on a walk and it had "the look," so we made reservations for Fri eve. Walked into a relaxed, inviting, professional atmosphere where everyone seemed to say "leave yourselves in our hands." Seemed like we had hundreds of servers all courteous and at the wait to help us, yet totally unobtrusive. Mouthwatering filet for my wife and my new favorite is the same as Dickie Brennan Sr. Fine wine, perfect lighting and surroundings, and Sinatra serenading us. Had great experience at a Shula's previously, but that doesn't compare. We have a new favorite steakhouse! Tasty dessert to go reminded for 2 days what a wonderful experience we had. Thanks!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a romantic meal..foodHad a romantic meal..food was amazing recommend the house filet!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDickie Brennan's review...Place to go for great steaks!

Food was great. Only downside was the noise level.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the 3-4 best ribeyesOne of the 3-4 best ribeyes I've ever had. We pick a new restaurant on each trip in addition to some of our favorites and this will definitely be in our rotation from now on.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA pretty darn good steak dinnerWe checked in at the host stand for a 6:30 reservation and were asked to wait even though the restaurant was still mostly empty. After a few minutes another lady who seemed to be running the show noticed us waiting and asked for my name. She was professional and on the ball and had us seated right away. We were seated at a very nice booth and from then on the dining room service was great. Our waiters were very courteous, professional and knowledgeable of the menu. Our steaks and prime rib were wonderful, although one person in our party sent his steak back to have it cooked a bit more. The fried oyster appetizer was some of the best fried oysters I've ever had. Dessert was great as well. Overall we really enjoyed it.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst dinner in New Orleans.First dinner in New Orleans. Servers were very attentive and food could not have been better. Fun atmosphere and lively bunch of diners.... We'll be back....4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and our server Josh was on top of his game. Definitely a great pick for our anniversary. As locals, we have been to other Brennan's restaurants, but this would be the first time here. Will definitely go back....4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there. Food wasFirst time there. Food was fabulous and the staff was wonderful.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThere really is no dress-codeThere really is no dress-code for Dickie Brennans, so don't worry about that. There were diners in what would be considered appropriate clothing for a white linen table cloth /5-star restaurant and then there were those in T-shirts and flip-flops. Anything goes! The steaks and Prime Rib were cooked to perfection and as tender as could be...everyone in our party loved their meals. The side dishes were also very good. The tossed salads (Iberville) in particular were just bad. The dressing had been on too long and as a result it was a wilted mess...better to stay away. Mixed drinks...not much in the way of alcohol in one persons Vodka and Tonic and anothers Jack & water- stick with wine or beer. But the Meat can't be Beat!!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service at Dickie Brennan'sThe service at Dickie Brennan's is ALWAYS beyond compare. Each and every employee from the hostess to the wait staff and beyond treat you like you are royalty. I took a couple that had never been there before and told them that this was not just a restaurant but a Dining Experience. They were not disappointed.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!Wow, what an absolutely wonderful dinner. Five of the six in our party had fish! At a steak house. It was fantastic. Also the onion rings were terrific. The Bib salad had a great Blue Cheese taste!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Food and ImpeccableOutstanding Food and Impeccable Service. One of the BEST steaks I have eaten in The United States. I also enjoyed your wine specials4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Excellent Service!We had a wonderful meal and evening at the restaurant. The staff were very professional and friendly. The booth seating was comfortable and perfect for our party of three. I'd recommend the Turtle Soup and the redfish. The asparagus tasted as if it had been smoked and was delicious.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated our 29th AnniversaryWe celebrated our 29th Anniversary and Michael was a wonderful waiter. Complimentary dessert (bananas foster bread pudding with a scoop of vanilla ice cream) and it was absolutely wonderful. Thank you for making our anniversary enjoyable.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, not great. Didn't haveGood, not great. Didn't have lump crabmeat as a topping!?! Really? Expected much better from a New Orleans.
Wine list is very large. Steak was very good and very tender. Lobster bisque very good.
Service was excellent and exactly what you would expect for a great restaurant in NO.
Overall pretty good.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome experience and ambianceGf and I ate here for our anniversary and it was nothing short of spectacular. Every dish we order was perfect. I thought it was going to be one of those expensive places with small portions but the portions were perfect. Not only that, but they surprised us with an anniversary dessert. Would definitely come here again and recommend this place for everybody3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best service that I haveThe best service that I have ever had at a restaurant! The staff did a wonderful job and my dad thoroughly enjoyed his birthday dinner! The special was a salmon dish that was better than any dish that I have had at gw fins!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI really love the mid centuryI really love the mid century clubby feel of this restaurant. From the waitstaff in white coats and bow-ties, crooners in the back-ground and the general vibe and decor, you feel as if you have stepped back in time - in a very good way! The food was good from the amuse bus to the salad - I can't recall the name right now but it was a tomato and bleu cheese stack that was HUGE and very delicious. I do have to say that I was a tad disappointed in my filet. The size was great, but the flavor was a bit lacking. I did have to salt it. It could have been seasoned more; my husband's was the same. He had the spinach with his meal and I tasted it and it was wonderful. Steaks needs more seasoning - only suggestion.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated our 10 year weddingCelebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary there & it was great!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Unfortunate snafu.Restaurant was great. Service very attentive. Food delicious. When we showed up however they did not have our reservation. We were lucky they were able to sit us. They advised us that missing Open Table reservations were common. The next morning I got a scolding d-mail from Open Table that we had been "no shows" at the restaurant. An irritating sequence of events.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom start to finish thisFrom start to finish this was a fantastic & incredible experience.
I would recommend this restaurant to everyone that goes to New Orleans, as a "Must Do"!
It is amazing how the entire staff work and move as a team in every aspect of the restaurant. They move as a well tune machine and a beautiful symphony.
This was an unbelievable treat.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service is outstandingThe food and service is outstanding even in this city where every restaurant is amazing!! Have recommended to all of my friends with upcoming trips to New Orleans.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is consistently outstandinThe food is consistently outstanding and the service is unparalleled!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW! This was an experience,WOW! This was an experience, from the history of Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse (a converted parking gargage! ) to the ambience, wait staff and food. Never rushed, wait staff were extremely attentive in an unobtrusive manner (even picking up on discomfort related to the inappropriate language from a party next to ours: the party was quietly spoken to without prompting from us). Wait staff seem truly invested in providing the best experience possible, and it was clear from the start this was going to be a personal experience. The food was very good, well timed in delivery. We would go back!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, Great ServiceThe food is good, but the service is great. Each table has 3 servers. One for drinks and desserts, one for making sure your water glass is always topped off, and one for food selection. Each of the 3 servers were very respectful, friendly, and handled special requests with ease. The attention to detail was very impressive. My wife and I told the dessert waiter that we were expecting twins. When he placed her dessert in front of her, he had written "Congratulations" in chocolate sauce on the rim of the bowl. I would highly recommend Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe minute you walk into DickieThe minute you walk into Dickie Brennan's you know you are in a steakhouse. The decor and general feel blend perfectly with the menu.
The food was excellent but be aware that the portions are enormous. The appetizers, sides and desserts are sharable and will easily feed two people. The steaks are generally large (12-14 oz.) with few choices for those looking for something more diminutive. Service was excellent and the wine list was extensive.
My college age son had eaten there before and wanted to back for, believe it or not, the vanilla ice cream. Said it was the best he had ever had anywhere. He was right but the rest of the food was worth going back for as well. Very enjoyable.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Steakhouse EverytimeThe food at Dickie Brennan's is perfect each and every time - without fault.
Complimented by the outstanding service, making this place an outstanding selection for both personal (special occasions) and for business dinners.
The steaks are pin-point perfect, great sides, outstanding wine selection.
The staff makes me feel like a king the minute I walk in every time, from the front-desk to the orchestration of the meal delivery and presentation.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood good. Service was slightlyFood good. Service was slightly spotty. Seemed short staffed.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing SteakhouseDickie Brennan's Steakhouse is the penicle of dinning. They are formal without being stuffy. The entire staff from the hostess to the waiter to the manager are incredible. You will not find a better steak in the city. While it can be a little diffuclt to get to if Burbon St is busy, it is worth the drive. You hear no noise from the street and with the dinning room below street level, you feel as if you are away from the world for a few hours. I would recommend this restruant to anybody and everybody.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinner was the best eitherOur dinner was the best either one of us have ever had!!! I went with my best friend for a girl's weekend without our husbands. We split everything except for the desserts - we each HAD to have our own! We started with the portobello fries, went on to the tomato bleu cheese Napoleon, for our entree we got the house filet, perfect size for two, 3 oz each! We ended with bananas foster bread pudding (for Melissa) and the pecan pie (for me.) We both concluded it was the hands down the best dinner we've ever eaten!!! Our server, Dominick, was OUTSTANDING!! He had a great, great personality and timed everything to be presented perfectly!! The iced tea which was freshly brewed was oh, so, good!!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday Dinner!As always, the food and service were excellent. I love that Dickie Brennan's is a fine dining restaurant without being stuffy!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
