Diner Reviews
  • "Food was fantastic, service was above average, I would definitely recommend eating here if you're in the area. Great for a romantic date."

  • "They have a band that plays so if you're looking for something quiet this is not the place. Great live music. I highly recommend making reservations."

  • "Great food and service sum it up. A little bit of loosiana in Downtown Disney. Our server treated us like we were the only ones in the room. The wife's salmon was absolutely huge accompanied by crab fritters. My filet mignon was rare without being raw (perfect). Theberry-merlot demi-glaze was a perfect accompaniment. The blue cheese potato stack was different and delicious as well. Try the bread pudding for dessert. I was dissapointed a bit in the bar. Although they did have Hendricks gin, the server and bartender had a hard time understanding what a gibson is. I wound up with a martini instead. Other than that, a great meal and time."

  • "Made a reservation, as we were from Canada, and they were ready for us when we arrived. We wanted a place that had atmosphere, theme and fun music as we dined. The Jazz Kitchen did not disappoint us. We both tried something off of their mnu that we have never tried before and were very happy with the choices. So much so we went there the following night when another place close by and across the way was a huge disappointment. Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen lives up to its reputation and we will be back next time we visit the area."

  • "We loved the 3 course meal presented as a soup/salad, choice of entree from three meals that were excellent, and dessert...good wine list and even though the place was packed, we got attentive service from our waiter and servers. Can't wait to eat there again!!!!"

  • "We have dined here twice and both times were excellent! First time we ate upstairs on the balcony which was perfect! Weather was great! I ordered the blackened halibut which was delicious! (catch of the day, and my husband got the pot roast which was also wonderful. They have since changed their menu, so catch of the day and pot roast is no longer on the menu) The 2nd time we dined here, I got the blackened swordfish and my husband got the Smothered New York Steak. Both were delicious! Both times we ordered the Double Chocolate Bread Pudding. Our server brought it and broke open a hole in the center and poured chocolate ganache in the center and then drizzled white chocolate ganache over the top. Sinfully delicious."

  • "This place is amazing, my boyfriend is a big Jazz fan and I had been looking for somewhere special to take him for his birthday. The Jazz Kitchen did not disappoint. Great ambiance with a live band, and the service is great!!! The staff goes out of their way to accommodate their guest's as best they can. I want to thank our server Mae for the great experience, and for making out celebration fantastic."

  • "Excellent and caring service......and, the food is delicious! Outdoor dining, whether on the ground level or on the veranda, was delightful. The outdoor live entertainment added to the ambiance. We stopped by the indoor bar/lounge afterwards to hear a New Orleans style blues combo performing...........very nice. Would definitely recommend this place fore a lovely evening with friends!"

  • "Second visit to Brennan's and was better than the first!! Had dining room seating which availed us to the enjoyment of the live music. Dining experience was fantastic."

  • "We visit Disneyland on average once per year. We always plan a night at Brennan's. Within the confines of the dining options of Downtown Disney we find Brennan's to stand out as a place for good food, lively atmosphere and fun for both our kids (as pre teens and teens) and adults. While you always pay a premium for dining options in Disney, we find this restaurant to have the best value among the higher end options. All the traditional Cajun fare plus a range of other options for those that do not like traditional New Orleans food. I had the $35 3 course meal that came with Red Beans and Rice soup, Andouille & Pretzel Crusted Pork Loin, Goat cheese mashed potatoes. Dessert was bread pudding. Good portions, good service, good fun."

  • "You have to deal with the crowds of being at Downtown Disney. Once we sat down inside though, the live entertainment in the form of a piano player / singer from New Orlenes drown out the chaos of the crowds outside. The food was excellent. They have vegetarian and vegan options that aren't on the menu, so ask your server if you are interested in those options. Our server was very helpful. We enjoyed the live music as well. This is not a place for a quick meal if you are in a hurry while at the Disney parks. If it were located elsewhere I would guess there would be more of a feel of a fine dining experience. Being in the Disney complex it does not have that feel, and I would say it is kid friendly due to its location also."

  • "My two daughters and three grandchildren arrived early for our weekend trip to Disneyland so we strolled downtown Disney while waiting for our room. Berowsing menu, my grandson had remembered seeing the Sunday Brunch. So on our way home we decided to try it. We were all very pleased that we did! We each had something different so ve could try many different things! It was great!!"

  • "All of the staff (especially our server) were great. They were attentive, friendly, and awesome with the kids which is not something you find at most places. The light up kids cups were a nice surprise as well, they loved them! I was really impressed with the service and the prix fixe dinner menu and $9.99 kids menu were a better deal than I expected. I would definitely come back."

  • "Our friends like to eat here when visiting Disneyland, so we decided to check it out. Good place to eat New Orleans' food. Pretty good selection of food. The Bananas Fosters prepared tableside were delicious! They have seating inside and outside. The tables inside were a little too close together. Live music performed by a jazz pianist added to the atmosphere. Our server was pretty good, but we did have to wait for a while for her to bring back our to-go boxes. Overall, it was a pretty good experience. I would go back again if I wanted New Orleans' style food or maybe check out their Express Cafe next door."

  • "Took a friend here for her birthday and everything was great! There was even a small Jazz group that played while we had brunch."

  • "The food was very very expensive but it was delicious!! I wish I could afford to eat there more than once!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The Jazz Kitchen is officially on my 'must-do' list when I visit the Disney Resort area. Food was incredible and everyone enjoyed it and ate their fill including my 10 year old boy and 14 year old girl and my picky husband! They really know how to properly season and flavor the food and not everyone who serves this food can do it! Amber, our waitress, was incredibly attentive in a packed-out restaurant (we were never forgotten) and someone I believe to be a manager even came out to ask how we were enjoying ourselves. Pianist was excellent and played some great music. We came back on our way out of town to get bignets from the Jazz Kitchen Express and those were great as well. 5 stars all the way!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Jazz Kitchen is a great place to eat if you like New Orleans inspired food. It's not authentic but it's still good and the service is always fantastic. They offer indoor and patio seating, and there's live music inside during dinner and brunch. Order the Bananas Foster for dessert. They make it right in front of you!"

  • "Fun atmosphere . Food was pretty good. Not amazing but happy with it considering we were in Disneyland."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "This is always a fun spot to go for something different....appetizers are great but entrees a bit salty. The ambiance is fun...on the patio watching people stroll by....Downtown Disney....and fireworks in perfect view or the bar with their nightly live jazz band....and always friendly staff."

  • "Came for my birthday dinner and the staff was wonderful! Very attentive and friendly! I got my birthday beignets with a candle! Food was amazing!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The food here is very good. It is somewhat a typical Downtown Disney type of place but food is definitely better quality. Prices are a little high but it is Disney. Shrimp and Grits were excellent. Service is a little rushed and they try to sell you pictures they take but overall a good choice for a nice meal without leaving the area."

  • "The Gnocchi was so salty, it couldn't be eaten. A medium steak came out well done & a blackened Halibut was overcooked so it was dry. Overall, not good especially for what I paid."

  • "Look, we've lived in New Orleans and the Brennan's restaurants are usually pretty darn good. This property on the Disney strip has B- food with not much else going for it. I would skip this one if at all possible. There is a good restaurant just inside California Adventure called Carthay Circle Restaurant and one futher inside for italian called Wine Country Trattoria that are both better than this one. Carthay Circle can be a nice dress up dinner without the kids and has a great wine list and menu."

  • "We got there waited a bit for service, but when we ordered it came out so fast it was like it was already made? Once our apps were delivered it was less than 10 min that our main course came, we could not put everything on our table so they took the apps away with food still left on. The main meal was average seemed overdone and very salty! Music was good and our kids liked it, but not very New Orleans. "

  • "A couple of friends and I met for brunch. Staff was very nice but not too attentive, we had to ask for refills on our ice teas, more than once. The food was good, but not great, and it took very long to get our dishes. We ordered the garlic bread, the bread tasted a bit stale, and the cheese was not melted, a little too greasy. We loved the outdoor patio."
