Always come to Brennan's when I'm in New Orleans. Tonight was a little different. Service was patchy. Out waitress disappeared for a long time. Someone else stepped in to make our banana foster. She came back and said she was talking to a regular customer so was busy. Hmmm. Guess I'm chopped liver. I'll be back because I love the dessert.
We were just in New Orleans for a short lay over while traveling from Florida to Texas. We have eaten there many time and are never disappointed! It is always us leisurely meal with great food and attentive service. It is my go to place when I am in the French Quarter and had been for over 40 years!
Looks like menu has been pared down? Not that many selections for such an iconic restaurant. Service was top notch but due to the small size menu we didn't find enough choices. Signature dish Bananas Foster was as excellent as ever.
Thank you for making our Anniversary special. The brunch was wonderful!
The portions were small and just ok as far as taste. However, the bananas foster was amazing! Also, the staff was very nice, friendly and professional!!! The restaurant was really beautiful!!
Loved every bit. From their soft warm rolls (I had 3) to the amuse bouche shrimp with cocktail sauce, zucchini with feta cheese appetizer, the chicory tenderloin and the gulf trout entrees, all were amazing! Then to top it off, bananas foster for dessert. Wow! Fantastic!!!
One of the most wonderful meals! Service stellar- food could not be any better and the overall atmosphere fabulous! Always a perfect place to go!
Love the traditional, professional, old school charm. John was an absolutely outstanding waiter!!
I decided to spend my birthday there. I could not have chosen a better restaurant! What an experience! From the appetizer to the surprise dessert, what an awesome experience!!!
First trip to New Orleans. Brennan’s was one of our restaurant picks while there. I had fish dishes all week & Brennan’s gulf fish amandine was the best fish I had of the week. Definitely a good choice.
It was not just brunch, it was an experience! The people, the food, the hospitality was second to none. It was our privilege to eat there
The food was awful. The coffee was fresh pressed at the table and was still cold. The steak was very overcooked and had to be returned. The wait staff was attentive, but what came out of the kitchen stunk. Also, it took 2 hours from the time we were seated with reservations, until we ate. It was bad news for the diabetic in our group.
Great service! Wish the shirt rib any nut for allergies I didn't notice that ingredient until after I ordered it and couldn't finish it but the quality and taste was exquisite. To me it was my fault for missing that in the description of the meal, I should have read it more carefully or asked the waiter for non-allergic options.
Wonderful experience. Food was incredible and the service was great.
Excellent service from Sonny. Great classic NOLA experience.
Look forward to another visit.
Great food and service
Thoroughly enjoyed our brunch. Great service. Wonderful bananas Foster.
Went for breakfast. Best meal in New Orleans! Food for our entire party was delicious. Good cocktails too. Service was strong and the ambiance was great.
Service was excellent!
The quintessential NOLA experience! Fabulous food, outstanding service, generously poured cocktails and a birthday surprise to top off the night. Make sure to order the Banana's Foster, it's a moral imperative! Make those reservations and get to Brennan's during your next stop in the Big Easy!
It was good as usual but the lacquered duck was not my favorite. The turtle soup and the smoked scallops were excellent as was the bananas foster
First time dining at Brennen’s. Very comfortable place with a nice Southern charm, each room being unique. Shawn and his server assistant took good care of us. Turtle soup, eggs houssarde, and bananas foster were all on point (like every other review says!) Ill be back when I’m back in town for sure, next time for dinner.
We had a fantastic time and every bite was delicious. Our service was wonderful and so accommodating.
Excellent experience! Could not have had a better time!
Food was excellent, ribs melted in our mouth. Turtle soup was great. Nice, upscale ambiance.
The brunch food was excellent. Had one of the creamiest omelet and the best croque madame I’ve ever tasted — they coat the toast with gruyere. The banana foster presentation was ok, I saw inconsistencies between staff members such as the length of story and how the sauce was poured. I preferred having the sauce scooped on like the server did in other tables instead of poured on top of my ice cream and banana — way too sweet!!
Delicious meal and Hugo cocktail was the perfect brunch adult beverage. Beautiful weather made patio dining experience perfect. Breakfast at Brennan's is a must while in NOLA.
We brought our daughter for her 17th birthday! It exceeded our expectations! Beautiful atmosphere and wonderful service!
Wonderful food and service, can’t wait to go back .
We came for breakfast to celebrate my husband’s and my birthday. The service was fantastic, the food was amazing and the extras for our birthday really made it so special. We also had our 3 year old and they were just great with him.
We had an amazing experience. The food and service were top notch.
Great new orleans style restaurant
Best steak I have ever had!
We were pleased that Brennan's is open again after closing due to the hurricane. We sat outdoors in the lovely garden and enjoyed the beautiful October weather and the antics of the turtles. The food was just as good as we remembered from a visit years ago.
Great service, yummy food and drinks
Great meal and ambience... servers were overwhelmed, not enough staff.
I was honestly disappointed with our experience this time. We always dine at Brennan’s every time we are in New Orleans, and this time it was more special because it’s our honeymoon. Firstly, they sat us in the aisle where it was very high traffic area. Next, it took a long time for our server to get our order. It wasn’t a busy night but i think they were getting ready to close. Thirdly, my order which was POMEGRANATE BRAISED SHORT RIB, was too salty. I actually told them this, they apologized but i was already disappointed. My appetizer which was SHRIMP QUENELLES had one lonely shrimp, and that was disappointing too. I just felt that our server, although she was nice and friendly, was not focused and was in a hurry. However, the bananas fosters did NOT disappoint.
Our server Emily was absolutely fantastic. She helped with recommendations and menu modifications for a gluten free member of our party. She made a special evening memorable. The food was delicious. Definitely a worthwhile experience.
Gosh, what’s happened? Is it all COVID and Ida related? Limited menu and most food ordered at our table had minimal flavor. Waiter was attentive but had NO personality. Out of 6 meals in NOLA, this was 6th. A sad day.
I miss the class of the old Brennan's... I know they have to make money but the waves of poorly dressed, undressed and loud mouths with smart phones made a classy breakfast at Brennan's feel more like a diner than a Brennan Restaurant...
