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.

    A group of 5 of us arrived for our reservation 6:45 and were seated right away although it was probably the worst table in the restaurant...we were practically sitting in the foyer. The two waiters, Roy & Dennis were very prompt to take our drink & order within the first 15 minutes. Then it all went downhill from there. The apps & drinks arrived within 10-15 minutes & the entrees were FINALLY brought out an hour & 15 mins later. Mind you we ordered two steaks & two fish entrees at a steakhouse. Within that hour, we had to ask where our food was only to be told it was just going on the grill. Manager came over to apologize & offer us appetizer or salads - already had that so no thank you. Steaks came out & they were well done! Not a good.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    We've been to NOLA many times, dined at nearly all the classics, many of the Brennan family group, but will never eat at this one again. Tho reserved, waited over 1/2 hour just to be seated. Then our drink order, taken right away, took another 20 min to come. Also had to ASK to place our dinner order! We were embarrassed about all this; our guest was a good sport about it. Drinks and food were good, but couldn't make up for the erratic service, noise, and attitude of 'this is normal' for Saturday night. No it's not. Across the street at Galatoire's, even on Saturday night, dining's a pleasure. This restaurant is over booking or something, but it was no impressive experience, and we would never recommend it or take anyone there again.

    The servers who helped us were superb. Friendly and yet businesslike, wasting no time with excess chatter but always there for us. I had the Cowboy Rib-Eye, a special, and it was simple and perfect, just butter and fine marbling that gave me all I had hoped for. I'll be back soon!

    We visit NO for a week several times a year and we always eat at Dickie Brennan's.....most often more than once while here. Regardless of what you order, the item will be delicious. Naturally, the steaks can't be beat, especially the filet; but don't overlook the seafood. Try the Napoleon salad...what treat! And, don't skip their home-made ice cream; it's a must!

    Everything was exceptional, from making reservation, to the service, and of course the spectacular food. They even named prices when describing their specials, including the days market price for lobster! The only room for improvement is they need a greater beer selection. For such a high caliber restaurant, the beer menu was very limited.

    We were celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary, and everyone in this restaurant helped to make this a very special occasion. The wait staff was beyond excellent, and he food was made in heaven. I had to ask our waitress Andrea to pinch me, because I was sure I had gone to heaven. I would recommend this restaurant to any and everyone I know.

    Alejandro was our server-she is excellent. She listened to our order and the filets were cooked to perfection! Potatoes au gratin were undercooked-but were replaced immediately without the meal getting cold. Very attentive service-the food outstanding and the coconut cake - to die for!!! That's why we go to Dickie B's every visit to NOLA!!

    Food was outstanding as always. This was the worst service ever experienced at a restaurant at this price point. The very long wait for the initial greeting set the service tone for the evening...long wait to order wine, long wait to receive wine, long wait to order dinner, long wait to receive dinner, no pepper offered for salads, no check-back on steak quality or doneness, no offer of desserts (which we might have considered) and ultimately a disappointing experience. The team service aspect left us confused as to who our waitress really was. There are plenty of other prime steak house options to choose from.

    I was rather disappointed with my dining experience at Dickie Brennan's. After reading reviews I expected a wonderful experience with great food, great ambiance and service. I was very disappointed with my meal. I ordered the parmesan crusted fish served over asparagus with oven roasted baby potatoes. Unfortunately, the fish was very salty, which by the way was the only flavor I could taste, Also, served over spinach not asparagus, with over done roasted potatoes. We also ordered an appetizer, fried oysters. Awful, they had so much crust on them you could not even taste the oysters and they were burnt, I actually could not believe they served them. My Husbands meal was good though He had Prime Rib. Hard to screw up Prime Rib.

    This steakhouse not only has great steaks but the service is outstanding. Everyone is friendly and attentive without standing over you. They aim to make sure your experience will keep you coming back! There are lots of great places in the French Quarter and they understand their extra attentiveness will definitely keep you coming back when you can. Don't miss it!!

    Dined there for our 25th anniversary. Food was wonderful...above what we expected, food service..outstanding. Our problem came after we dined and paid. I stepped into the restroom, and husband waited outside for me. While waiting a woman who worked for the restaurant came to sit by him and told him that the only reason she ALLOWED us into the restaurant to dine was because it was our anniversary. Apparently, my husband didn't meet their dress code (which I might add was no where to be found). After speaking to management, I pointed out at least three other patrons in there that were wearing much more casual attire than we were. I explained they should have told us about attire BEFORE they seated us and accepted our money.

    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.

    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.
