We celebrated our wedding day with a quiet date for dinner. The food was not only delicious, but the server who made the Fosters Banana, gave us the history of why it was named so. The plates were well presented and the wait staff was attentive, without being obstrusive.

I've heard outstanding things about Brennan's for 35 years and it did not disappoint! Made a reservation for Brunch. This was my first time in New Orleans. Everything about Brennan's is fabulous from the beautiful oyster plates and Audubon bird prints hanging on the walls to the fabulous pink and green tile floors to the food and service. I had a bloody Mary that was good and spicy. The Eggs Hussard was outstanding. Others at my table had the redfish, steak tartare. Both were delicious. We completed our meal with Bananas Foster made at our table - just incredible! A delightful dining experience and a must when visiting New Orleans!

Very disappointing visit. Brennans has been a favorite of our for more than three decades. This time was not anywhere near their standard. The dining rooms are still welcoming. The menu, although extremely abbreviated, had good food to select from. My wife’s blackened fish was cold, totally cold. My baked shrimp were only like warm. Our waiter brought the entrees but didn’t check back. We waited 20+ minutes to get desert. Bananas Foster— a Brennan Signature fish. Tonight’s was disappointing. We’re tentative about returning after such a bad encounter. We traveled five and a half hours by air from the west coast to experience a meal much lower in quality of food and service that we have at home in Scottsdale.

Great service and ambiance. They definitely don't do salad! Shrimp and bread pudding were excellent. Salads were underdressed, and just a few leaves of wilted, brown-edged lettuce (for $11 ?).

Food was ok. We understand that the pandemic has changed things. But, would have also appreciated knowing before had that the menu was extremely limited. Food was also cold and we ultimately left hungry. Will pick other restaurants over Brennan’s from now on. The service was fine and no complaints in this area.

The host was very nice. The room they sat us in had the feel of an overflow room. Our server was a bit smug and condescending. The food although well prepared and had good presentation, wasn’t very good. The saving grace was the bananas foster served table side. Otherwise, I wish we spent our money elsewhere.

After years of eating in other New Orleans Restaurants... we finally made it to Brennan's. We were seated immediately.... The restaurant was set up for COVID distancing.. but the service and food did NOT suffer.

Our waitstaff (all of them) were outstanding.... the wine was just what we asked for... and the food was superb.

Shrimp Quenelles, Blackened Redfish, and Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin. Dessert was Cookie Butter Lava Cake..... everything was EXACTLY as described.... and the seasonings were perfect.

We have eaten in many different restaurants in New Orleans.. and this was perhaps one of the best meals... EVER.

The fish was so fresh... and perfectly cooked. The bacon wrapped pork loin was sweet, and tasted over the top with the Mehaw Jus... the Charred Okra was a welcomed surprise.

The Lava Cake was good enough to ask if the sauce was available for take out.

Service (as expected) was outstanding.. and everyone on our team was attentive, and accomodating.... what a great evening.

Two people for appetizer, bottle of wine, entrees and dessert... WITH TIP $159.00.... I know many would say this was expensive.. but I have paid MUCH MORE for worse. For New Orleans.. this would be an over the top experience.....

Thank you for a great meal.... we will be back!!!

This was a wonderful socially distanced brunch! We are local but have been meaning to dine here, but were worried it wouldn’t be the same with Covid guidelines. The tables were well spread out without feeling strange and we enjoyed our meal with low noise and jazz music playing.

understandably there was a limited menu (4 entree's) to choose from but we were unaware of it and would have liked a little more to choose from particularly on the seafood side. Service was outstanding, the was excellent and we look forward to coming back when things are back to normal!

We had a party of 7 and were able to get our own room upstairs and it was lovely! Felt safe because there was hardly anyone else upstairs besides our party and the servers. Elevator and upstairs bathroom were great to have too.

Celebrated my son’s graduation and couldn’t have picked a better place! The food and service are impeccable. I highly recommend the Eggs Sardou. Brennan’s addition of crispy artichoke is a real “wow” factor and the homemade sauce amazing. Highest compliments to our server, John. He anticipated our every need and made great recommendations.
