    One of the best steaks we've had in New Orleans - and we are from here. The crab cake was delectable. We had dined at this restaurant several years ago and enjoyed it. We regret not coming back sooner! So many great restaurants in New Orleans, it's difficult to decide where to go. Put on your dressy casual clothes and enjoy this fine dining restaurant.

    doxiemommaVIP
    Dined on 9/3/2014
    Soup of the day was a tomato soup with parmesan twill (cracker) and it was excellent. Had the gumbo which had a good portion of chicken and andouille sausage in it, but the roux was too dark for my taste. A bit too salty as well. Prime rib and petit filet were very disappointing. Both cuts were not up to par as they were tough and had way too much gristle in them. Sautéed spinach and au gratin potatoes were very good. Dessert of black forest ice cream and coconut cake with 5 layers of chiffon cake and Italian buttercream frosting and soaked in creme anglaise were excellent. Service was very good!! I would recommend this restaurant, but a new beef purveyor is needed.

    All was great except we sat by a group of guys that night who were crude and rude with there language as my wife and I tried to enjoy our 34th year anniversary. We stayed the weekenfd at the Ritz Carlton (1st class) dined at Brennan's which we thought would be 1st class only to have the table of about 10 - 12 guys ruin the evening. Although I was willing to move or asked to be moved my wife not wanting to cause a scene just grinned and bared thru the crudeness. I, we understand that all are entitled to there thoughts but when you are going to conduct yourself in that manner you should ask for a proivate room.

    We made two phone calls to confirm the dress attire. First told business. I called right back to get their definition. I was then to business casual. No problem. We dress to fit both attire. After being seated we observed over 50% less than casual. Most wore jeans. One table went as far as to have two young women in shorter than short shorts and tank tops. I have no problem either way. Just say, come as you are if you will except any dress. We totally felt over dressed. We would have loved to have worn jeans and a nice shirt. This will not stop us from going back. We just feel this needs to be address. The dress code should either be lifted or one put in place. I think the restaurant well deserves to be business casual at least.

    I was truly impressed by Dickie Brennan's. To start the fresh bread at the table was exellent, My escargot I'm puff pastry was truly amazing. Our steaks were prepared perfectly. My filet mignon was super tender with just touch of melted butter on top. My wife's NY Strip was amazing as well. We culminated the meal with a great version of Bananas Foster Bread pudding. Overall a perfect meal,

    My wife and I have dined at Dickie's every few months for the last couple of years and the service and quality are always superb. Our recent experience was the same with one minor change, there was a four person singing group roaming the restaurant and singing for tips. Now, some people may enjoy this type of entertainment, but we did not. When the group sings to the tables directly around yours, it makes conversation next to impossible. My wife and I were there to enjoy each other's company and not to be made uncomfortable by four unwanted table guests. I hope this isn't a feature the restaurant plans to continue. Other than that, everything was excellent. Alex, our server, was very attentive and kept our drinks flowing.

    Dined on 8/13/2014
    We were looking for a steak place as a specialty restaurant in the French Quarter and the concierge recommended Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse. We had a great experience! The restaurant offered a fantastic food (and great selection), very generous portions at a reasonable price, and great staff. The prime rib and bananas foster bread pudding were wonderful! The only downside was that it was a little noisy, particularly with a trio of singers who went around the tables singing motown tunes. They did a great job, but it overpowered the opportunity for conversation.

    This was our 1st experience @ Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse and it was excellent. We were seated promptly upon arrival. The food was outstanding and the service superb. Staff was very attentive and worked very well together. My husband's prime rib was cooked just as he ordered--medium well--tender and juicy. My grilled redfish was great--nice size piece of fish w/ great taste. Portabella Mushrooms are a nice appetizer--not your typical fried mushrooms. You have to have the Banana Foster's Bread Pudding---divine---great twist on a New Orleans classic as was the Steakhouse Pecan Pie. The table side quartet was a wonderful addition to the night. You will not be disappointed. Sorry we haven't dined there sooner. We will definitely return.

    Allow me to state that the wait staff was excellent! Rebekah and Alfredo were wonderful hosts. Food was good, nothing special considering the reputation and pricing. The lettuce in the Iberville salad was soggy, very tasty, but a lettuce should retain some "crunch". Shrimp and Grits appetizer was the star of the meal, while the crab cake "special" was okay. Steaks were cooked close to ordered, I believe the chef reversed the temps on our steaks, but nothing to send them back for. Crème Brule' was okay. It appears that the Bourbon Street crowd marches in to dine thinking they're at a Lucky Dog stand. Loud, drunk and obnoxious are not the adjectives I prefer for table guests. Should have been a romantic evening, it left much for improvement.

    We arrived an hour before our resv to try and avoid the rain. Sat at the bar, Drinks were very good, bartender lacked personality. Once it got to 730 we returned to the hostess stand where the 0wner had arrived & was greeted by everyone. There were approx 30 people waiting in the lobby area....now 10min past our reserv time & one of the hostesses said they were seating their last 7pm. So I asked her how behind they were..she seemed very offended I asked such a question. The Owner walked outside & came in with a group of 5 & told the girls to seat these people. You could tell they were scrambling to accommodate his request. It really upset others waiting. Food was great but the 30min past our reserv time was unacceptable for a $200 bill.

    This was my second visit to Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse. The room has an understated elegance and the food is very good. It took way too long to serve us all through dinner, especially when the room is not even half full! It was twenty minutes before we got our drinks, even though they were only tea and sodas. Then there were long intervals between courses. after we waited thirty minutes for our dessert to be brought, we just asked for the check. They brought our dessert in a bag. We usually tip twenty percent in restaurants, but for the first time we only tipped fifteen percent.
