Breakfast at Brennan's was our last stop before heading to the airport for home (Nashville). Best way to end our weekend in New Orleans! Definitely recommend saving room for dessert... the Banana's Foster was delicious!

I have eaten at a lot of restaurants in New Orleans and all over the world. This place was amazing. I don't know why we never tried it before. The atmosphere, service and food are amazing. The duck was the best thing I ever tasted, better than Paris. Can't wait to go again.

Was seated by a outside door. Cold night. Asked to Be moved after my waiter repeatedly said no one was going to use the door AGAIN! Fish overdone. Dessert, awesome! Overall I was disappointed 😐

Our server, Randy, was excellent, and the food was terrific. It was a mix of the traditional Brennan's fare, with some very good and interesting additions. The BBQ lobster appetizer is not to be missed. Eggs poached in cream was delicious but very rich. The Italian Salad was a great with it as a shared salad for the table. Turtle soup was okay, not my favorite version and there are too many really good dishes here to get that again. Will definitely be back!

Brennan's never disappoints. We travel to NO several times a year and always try and make it by there for brunch. Their eggs benedict is exceptional!! And yes it is a little pricey but you get what you pay for. We had the steak Diana , the risotto , and of course the benedict. All of which was fantastic. We always try different places when we come down, but we always make sure to visit Brennan's.

We loved Brennan’s. Buzzy restaurant in the heart of the French Quarter. Attentive but not intrusive service. Husband loved the chicken dish and I had the blackened redfish - also very good. Piece de resistance was the dessert - we had the signature Bananas Foster - cooked and flambéed at the table. It was amazing. Good value for money if you steer clear of the more expensive wines on the huge wine list.

Wonderful brunch at Brennan's! The turtle soup, gumbo and Eggs Sardou are must-haves. The flavors are quintessential New Orleans. Service is outstanding and the ambience is traditionally Southern. Hands down skip the Starbucks and go to Brennan's!

We felt extremely rushed by our server- she kept attempting to remove plates b/f we were done and checked in periodically while we were clearly still eating. It was pretty clear that they wanted us out of there (- they began setting up for an event b/f we were finished)

It was not what I’d expect from Brennan’s— I’m a local (not a tourist).
