We went for Sunday brunch for our 2nd Anniversary. Everything from the decor, service to the food was spot on! I’d highly recommend Brennan’s for a special occasion, date, or just for a good meal! Definitely get the bananas fosters, it was delicious. Loved the pink/green color scheme.

This was my first time at Brennan's and it did not disappoint. We had breakfast and I ordered the raspberry blintz appetizer as my main course along with eggs. Both were spectacular. We ordered bacon and sausage for the table and both were delicious. Everyone agreed the food was delicious and we couldn't leave without having the Bananas Foster which was spectacular. It was a little pricy but worth it.The french pressed coffee was perfect. We will go back.

I was very excited to take my parents to Brennan’s for their first time because every time I have gone, everything has been perfect in terms of food and service. We visited over the weekend for brunch on Saturday and I was very disappointed. First of all, we were told that we had 2 waiters, and neither was to be found for the first 20 minutes. Someone finally came over to give us water after about 10 minutes. When waiter #1 came, he was very distant and short. Usually when one comes to a restaurant, the waiters set the tone by their energy. There was none. Drinks were finally ordered, but then instead of taking our order, waiter #1 goes to another table. Waiter #2 is nowhere to be found so we ask another kind waiter to take our order. My mom and I order the chicken and waffles, my dad orders the pumpkin seed crusted redfish, and my friend orders eggs cardinal. We also ordered a side of bacon and a biscuit to try. The champagne we ordered unfortunately was hot so it had to sit in the bucket for 30 minutes to chill. Food comes and everyone is excited to eat their meal. The chicken on the chicken and waffles was terrible. They said they fry the chicken with no batter and that is why the skin is black on the chicken. Waffles are waffles, nothing special there. My friend was also unimpressed by the eggs cardinal. I think my dad was the only one who enjoyed his dish, the redfish. Waiter #2 was finally found when it was time to order dessert, which was the bananas foster. My parents enjoyed the dessert. I would have to say the best thing I ate was the biscuit and the bacon. Sorry Brennan’s but I’ll be taking a break from you for a while.

AMAZING! Booked Breakfast at Brennans to celebrate my 28th birthday. They made me feel absolutely special. Each server, bartender, etc. gave me well wishes. Also, closed the breakfast with a special surprise from the restaurant. The food was divine and the decor was even better. We got to peek into the additional private rooms. I wish I could visit Brennans everyday. Hands down the best place I have eaten in the New Orleans French Quarter!

It was our 33rd anniversary and I can't think of a better place to have celebrated. The restaurant has several areas and all shined with New Orleans elegance. The jazz ensemble was wonderful. I wish they had worked more than happy hour. We started with champagne specials in the bar and moved into the restaurant for exceptional food and impeccable service. All of the staff seemed to work together to keep the room humming and everyone attended. The smoked duck breast and grilled gulf fish were both fantastic and cooked perfectly.
Thanks for making our anniversary special.

Well — it was a bit disappointing after so many great trips to this iconic restaurant. The service was spotty. E.g., it took a long time just to get water. But we weren’t in a hurry, so that was good. The thing that was most disappointing was our crawfish and porcini mushrooms omelets were barely lukewarm. Two of us only ate half of the omelet. The dish just didn’t work being too cool . . . In retrospect, we should have sent our dishes back. We did complain, however, and the manager came right over, which was nice, and we were told our drinks would be taken off. But there was a mixup and one drink was still on the bill. So back again we went. All in all, not a terrific meal. We will try again, as we love the atmosphere, and usually the food!

We visit Brennan’s about every three years or so when we visit New Orleans. Still the best brunch in all of New Orleans, if not the U.S.

Our first night in Nola we dined at Brennan’s. It was outstanding from start to finish! Our server was attentive and was like our own personal history teacher. Telling us fun facts about the restaurant, owners and some of their famous dishes. We started with their rolls which I could have eaten the entire basket. Soft buttery goodness! We followed it by the roasted oysters and bbq lobster for appetizers. Both outstanding dishes with off the chart flavors. For our main entree my husband had the shrimp kimchi - a dish that totally surprised both of us as it was kind of a daring choice but it was absolutely amazing. I had the blackened red fish with shrimp - also cooked to perfection and great flavors! Lastly the real show stopper was the table side bananas foster for dessert. If you have nothing else you need to order this! Don’t miss Brennan’s in Nola you won’t be disappointed!

This was my second time going to Brennan's. The first time I went was a couple years ago when I was in town. This trip was a girls trip and I was the only one that had been there before. We all agreed the food was amazing and the best we had in NOLA. The service is always amazing. I highly recommend this restuarant if you are going to NOLA.

Chicken and Waffles with Foie Grad butter was deliciously spiced with just the right amount of sweet, the corn meal waffles were amazing. The milk Punch reminded me of Christmas egg nog and a good white Russian. We could not visit the home of the banana foster without trying it and Im so happy we did. Amazing lunch, I can see why Brennans is an Institution.

I first visited Brennan's many years ago on a trip with the girls, who now haven't seen girldom in at least 55 years. Loved it. Visited New Orleans that first time from Syracuse, New York, for an American Business Women's Conference and there was a lot more sightseeing and fun than conferencing. Didn't get to New Orleans again until last year (we now live in Austin, Texas) and went to Brennans's with my daughter, and my grandsons who we are teenagers, and whom we have raised. We loved it. Visited yesterday with my husband for his first time in New Orleans. We loved it. Seven....7....waitstaff in attendance. Food was delicious.

Brennan’s is truly one of the finest restaurants we’ve ever eaten in, having spent a long life of international travel a fine dining. Its ambience is exceptional: it has a beautiful interior. All of the food is superb- whatever we choose from the menu. The service is friendly, helpful and impeccable. We only regret that we live so far away that we can only come every few years.

We had brunch on Monday morning before heading home from a weekend in New Orleans. We originally tried to get a reservation for Mother's Day brunch but it wasn't available. I'm so glad we went on Monday. The restaurant was not crowded, our server Steven was very attentive and we had a very enjoyable time with some family for my husband's 60th birthday celebration. You definitely feel pampered at Brennan's.

What a great birthday experience! The entire staff went out of their way to make the event special, including a sweetly decorated table for two by the windows looking into the garden. The service was impeccable: great wine recommendations, excellent cocktails and the food! Mushroom risotto, Steak Oscar and, of course, the Bananas Foster.... all delightful and prepared perfectly. It was our first visit, but we will definitely be back. We’re huge fans now!

My wife and I spent a long weekend in New Orleans. Brennan's had been recommended to us but I had never visited before. We were greeted promptly and taken to our table, which had a nice view of the interior courtyard. Service was excellent throughout. The chef had a special risotto both as an appetizer and a main course - with blue crab and shaved truffle - which was so good I wanted to lick the plate. I almost changed my main course order to have it again! We both had fish, my wife's Almondine and mine blackened, and both were very good. We certainly will return the next time we're in town.

Thought the food was great and the service was oustanding. I feel like the options to pick from, were limited. Would have liked a little more seafood as options in the entree. Also, bread pudding should be a staple on their menu. Overall would go again, but not one of the best experiences from this restaurant group.
