I seldom If ever leave a bad review, so this brings me no joy in saying this is the worst food I have ever had in New Orleans. I will start with the good, because it is only fair to give them their dues. The ambiance is lovely. The wait staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Sincerely, they go over and beyond to create a beautifully pleasant experience for the patron. The bad- the food was disgraceful. Although I have been to NOLA several times, I had yet to experience Brennan’s. After all, it’s fame is notorious for fine dining and southern hospitality. The food was awful. I had the lobster soup- which was so salty that it was inedible. I took one spoon and almost blew out my palette. It was like drinking soy sauce straight out the bottle. Their Foie gras appetizer was an offense to the poor animal that sacrificed its life so that I may enjoy one of life’s true great delights. An abomination. I ordered the wagyu beef ribeye (honestly how can you mess that up?). I ordered it medium rare, it came well done in a sauce that I can honestly describe as Salisbury steak sauce from a frozen TV dinner I ate as a child when my mom was out of town. There aren’t sufficient adjectives to properly describe how inedible and atrocious my meal was. My husband had the duck, which was so chewy that his steak knife could hardly cut through it. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. Seriously.. it was that bad.

Breakfast at Brennan’s is an absolute must whenever we are in New Orleans. As always, this visit did not disappoint. We had 9 a.m. reservations and were promptly seated. The staff is prompt, courteous, and attentive to your every need. We started with the “Sparkling Strawberry” off the Eye Openers selections; then my wife had the Turtle Soup. We both followed that with the Baked Apple (out of order but since I didn’t want the soup our server brought it out first). For our entrees my wife had the Mushroom & Chèvre Omlette, and I had the Artisanal Eggs Benedict. We then finished up with Banana’s Foster for dessert .... how can you resist when you’re at Brennan’s? All in all a wonderful experience. Go. You won’t be disappointed.

Went to Brennan’s 23 years ago when last in New Orleans and it did not disappoint. Went to the court if two sisters the day before and it was rather frantic as it was a buffet. Much preferred to be served in very elegant surroundings and banana foster prepared at the table sublime

Food was great but the service was terrible except for the bus boy who refilled our water. It was not super busy but we didn’t see our waiter again after we ordered. No one came to check if everything came out ok, but if they had we would have ordered more cocktails. Had to flag someone down for the check.

My daughter and I had a fabulous time. We started with their signature baked apple...had dessert first! I had the recommended scallops quiche which was delicious. My daughter had a chickpea and avocado dish which she loved. We both loved the decor and our server was great. After lunch we finished at the bar to continue talking and had their strawberry champagne cocktail. Bartenders were very friendly. My daughter enjoyed the food and experience so much she is bringing her boyfriend back, I had to get on a plane.

Breakfast at Brennan's beats Breakfast at Tiffany. We visit New Orleans French Quarter once a year and always make a reservation at Brennan's the day after we arrive. The Eggs Cardinal is to die for add on some fried oysters. Mimosas are a must. Ask to sit viewing the court yard. The restaurant is beautiful so be sure to take notice of the little details. Wait staff is nice and accommodating.

Brennens was absolutely amazing! The service, drinks, and food were all to die for. Members of my group had crab, steak and lamb and everything was up to par. Would go again and recommend to a friend. It is releatively pricey though, so just prepare for a $100+ meal.
