A word from Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse
“Top Steakhouses in America” Maxim Magazine and Playboy, and featured in the Wall Street Journal, Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse serves straightforward prime steaks with a New Orleans touch. Signature dishes and sides include: The House Filet (served with masa flash-fried Louisiana oysters), Tomato Bleu Cheese Napoleon, Pontalba Potatoes, and a Roasted Sweet Potato with Creole Pecan Butter. The house favorite dessert is a toss up between the Coconut Cake with a chiffon buttercream and the Bananas Foster Bread Pudding—so go ahead and order both.

    This was a great dining experience. Wait staff was very professional and knowledgeable. Atmosphere was good as well as an easy walk from anywhere in the French Quarters. The only thing they could improve on would be to enforce their dress code, I got to look at a guy wearing a ball cap and jeans while dining at a 4 star restaurant.

    Not that great. We walked by one night and it smelled good, so we made reservations for the next evening. Service was great, but we all agreed that there's better. I got what was supposed to be a creole seasoned prime, but it didn't taste any different than the others. To sum it up, there was nothing special about this steakhouse.

    What happened here? Food was fine, but we didn't understand the point of the "tag-team" service with three different servers who came around at different times. When we asked for the wine steward, the 20 something year old waitress said that she could answer our questions. We asked about a particular wine and her reply was, "Well, some people like it." What??? This is what they consider a "Sommelier?" We ordered something else and then she couldn't get the cork out and had to call for back up. Ho hum........we had out-of-town company.........embarrassing after our build up of "great classic steak house"...........

    In a town overflowing with great food, Dickie Brennan's continues to raise the bar for fantastic food and outstanding service. As difficult as it is to save room for dessert, make sure you do. Both the pecan pie and chocolate cake were unbelievably great. Other great restaurants rotate in and out of my schedule when I visit New Orleans, but this place is always my first must go to place and it never disappoints.

    We love this place and try to eat here every time we make the short drive to NOLA. steaks are flavorful, tender and always cooked to perfection. I'd recommend the McIlhenny Oysters to start. Service is impeccable. A must eat when in the French Quarter.

    Service was very slow and impersonal, not what you usually expect at a Brennan's restaurant. THe turtle soup was great. My steak was well-prepared but the accompanying lobster mac and cheese smelled like the cheese had gone bad and didn't taste very good either.

    My wife and I dined here on a beautiful fall Tuesday night in New Orleans. First of all the service was outstanding and we do not have any complaints. Being from the Midwest we are used to top notch steakhouses. Dickie's would not make it into our top 40 steakhouses, primarily because the steaks and prime rib were just OK. Dickie's was a good change of pace in New Orleans from the myriad of seafood, French and Cajun restaurants that are everywhere to be found. The place was full until about 9 pm on a Tuesday and the 60's something couple next to us said they "skipped a free big fancy dinner for Wells Fargo investment representatives" to instead come to their favorite restaurant so it is surely popular.

    I probably eat here a dozen times of year and always feel like I get treated special. Turtle soup and gumbo make for a tough starter decision. Steaks are always fantastic and the coconut cake is unmatched! Can't go wrong as a special occasion place to eat coupled with outstanding wine selection!

    My wife and I found the food to be very good. My meat was perfect and my wife's fish was just right. We had three people waiting on us, so any wait time was short. It was Saints game day so everybody had their jerseys except us of course. Due to game day, I think, it was a little loud. Also, we were glad they had validated parking. It would have been impossible to park on the street. Overall, very pleasant. We'll be back.

    We were seated close to 30 minutes after our reservation, which I understand is not always the restaurant's fault. However what I found inexcusable is that one member of the wait staff was condescending (when my wife asked for details regarding a dish, the response was "it's prepared the way the menu says." Admittedly, the staff tired to recover, but appeared frustrated that my wife didn't quickly grasp the hasty explanation. The food was "ok" but the restaurant was overcrowded and very loud. I was looking forward to this meal as I had had several positive experiences there in the past. This was not my typical Brennan's experience and I don't believe up to Brennan's standards. Sadly, I will be hesitant to go back anytime soon.

    We were in NOLA attending a convention---and I must say Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse was a huge disappointment from the moment we walked in. We could not be seated (policy)--2 of 7 were stuck in traffic; the bar was crowded--so rather than being seated and ordering a round of drinks and appetizers, we had to stand in crowded entry to wait for entire party! The service was terrible from start to finish---drink orders forgotten/wrong, main course was cool to slightly warm when it finally arrived--LONG WAIT! Many waiters/help standing around--at some point our waiter totally disappeared never to be seen again. He was arrogant and inattentive--service and meals totally unacceptable! We won't be back....too many great restaurants in NOLA!!!

    I took two co-workers to Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse for dinner based on a wonderful experience I had their in the past. Let me just say, everything was just as great as the last time I visited! They have superior steaks, wonderful salads, soups and sides. I can't say enough. On this trip, my group ordered filets, soft shell crab, turtle soup, the napoleon salad and three sides - mushrooms, creamed spinach and au gratin potatoes. Everyone was impressed and thanked me for such a good recommendation in a city with many award wining restaurants to experience.

Then when asking our order taker where's he's been Instead of stepping it up he went to hostess stand where the manager was and complained in front of other quest ..As my daughter walked by and over heard And the manager never even cane over to see if there was a problem or how anything was . horrible service and customer relations to many amazing steak houses.

    The service was terrible for a upscale steakhouse. Had two servers that seemed like they were on another planet. Forgot to bring drinks, wrong salads were served, wrong steaks came to the table, every steak was cooked wrongly and then brought back to the table at different times (10-15 minutes different times), and finally over charged the group for drinks that were never brought to the table. Worse dinner I've ever had which was a huge disappointment since a group of four of us were celebrating the Marine Corps birthday. Oh, I can't forget the 4 guys that walked around clapping their hands and trying to sing which made it very difficult to hear and actually have a nice conversation. Worse place ever.

Our servers Roy and Darren made our visit most enjoyable. Our food was timed perfectly and we were not rushed even though the restaurant was quite crowded.

    Don't bother. While the steak was ok, the lobster was undercooked. It was sent back so I had to eat or let my steak get cold while my wife just sat. By the time the second lobster was brought out, I was finished, the side dishes were cold and the second lobster was only marginally better than the first. Not even an I'm sorry from management. At their prices, it is way over rated.

    I've eaten here before several years ago, and the steaks were fantastic. However, on this visit the steaks were not up to par for a restaurant of this caliber. The steaks were barely warm and had little flavor, and that includes three different styles - filet, porterhouse, and ribeye. The other items ordered were very good, including the turtle soup, shrimp cocktail, and the desserts. The service was acceptable - nothing special.
