Great location for brunch. Right in heart of French Quarter across from courthouse and near waterfront. Staff was a delight and food was above average. Weather permitting ask for seating in courtyard.

The service was very slow and indifferent. The music was so loud that everyone was shouting at each other. The food was good but not great. The setting was pretty.

We were sat in the King's room and had an amazing breakfast finishing with their (world?) famous bananas Foster. The staff was on point, and in no rush to get us out of the restaurant. They answered questions about the location and even took us on a mini-tour of the establishment. We left satisfied both in our hearts and our stomachs.

We always have a meal at Brennen's whenever we are in New Orleans. Our server (initials JG) was very nice and helpful. She answered any questions that we had concerning the choices and fixed up a nice banana foster for desert. We enjoyed our experience.

It’s always a special occasion to eat at Brennan’s & have John Rauch taking care of you
Our Easter was super special I’m not a fan of 3 courses because I can’t eat that much food but my leftovers were delicious the second meal too. Easter was very busy at Brennan’s & we were excited to see since covid quarantine I also want to express how much we appreciate you opening during the pandemic 😷 & having a chance to enjoy Brennan’s hospitality & wonderful meal. Thank you John for your knowledge, service & caring service

Lovely Easter AM brunch. Service was impeccable and prix fixe menu was delightful. Jazz brunch is something NOLA does so well...bonus was 1/2 off Champagne menu. Some classics don't go out of style.

Great brunch spot with plenty of New Orleans and french flair- and what type of trip is complete to New Orleans is you didn’t try bananas foster where it was created?

Brennan’s for Breakfast is a must when visiting New Orleans! The service and food are top notch. I always start with Turtle Soup, then Eggs Benedict and of course table side Bananas Foster. Grab a few cocktails to start and finish the meal off with some french press chicory coffee.

his was our second trip to New Orleans, and we actually extended a day so we could visit Brennan's. The rest of the trip paled in comparison. We got there a bit early and were greeted warmly and seated in the courtyard for happy hour until our table was available.

When our table was ready we were moved inside where the absolutely stunning decor hit us right away. Servers were perfectly attentive without being overbearing and we felt perfectly welcomed, much more so than at several of the other high end restaurants we have eaten at in New Orleans.

Food was delicious. Portion size was perfect, not so little you felt that you had only tasted but not so much you felt pressured to finish or take home. The cotton candy fluff with the birthday cake hiding in side was a wonderful treat. Thank you again for a great experience

Brennans is the best brunch in North America! My wife and I have been coming here for over 30 years and this visit was our 41st wedding anniversary. We started with milk punch then I had Eggs husarde and my wife had croak madame for our entrées. They were beyond delicious... The wait staff could not have been nicer. We then had bananas Foster for dessert and Brennans gave us complementary pink champagne for our anniversary which was extremely nice! My wife and I will keep returning to Brennans!!!

Brunch was good; eggs benedict, of course. Little too much hollandaise sauce, eggs over cooked, not runny. Grits were bland. Had to wait 20 minutes for our “reservation”. Told waitress we had a flight to catch. Had we not, brunch may have lasted more than the hour and a half that it did. Interminably slow. Average pricing. Beautiful space.
