As always, Brennan’s for brunch did not disappoint. The Cajun Bloody Mary was perfect, as was the Brennan’s Breakfast! We did have to wait 15 minutes for a table, despite a reservation.

Great food, wonderful ambiance, and an intelligent well thought out list of wines by the glass. The price of the food is reasonable for a restaurant of this quality. I'd gladly return for another meal.

We picked the restaurant really last minute staying in a nearby hotel. We were seated promptly, very nice ambience and great server (Lauren R). We had the turtle soup and the Tian of crab. Both were excellent and portion sizes just right. The main course was the Fish Amandine and the day special - diver scallops. The scallops where fantastic, the amandine was good but not the same quality level as the scallops.
As dessert we had the Crepes Fitz, I think the better choice than banana foster and also prepared tableside.
Overall one of the best meals we had in New Orleans.

We are both foodies from the east coast and loved the restaurant! The service was impeccable, and the food was incredible - fresh with beautifully layered flavors - new takes on southern cuisine that both surprised and delighted . Brunch was so good that we went back for dinner which was terrific.

Brennan's was an exceptional experience. Definitely not your everyday brunch (unless you're used to fine dining--the waiter matched my napkin to my dress, swapping a white for black napkin!). Our waiter was extremely kind, had great food (and NOLA sightseeing) recommendations. I would definitely go back for a special occasion if visiting the city again.

I requested through Open Table reservations at Brennan's for 8 PM on September 19th. I arrived around 7:50 PM and was asked to wait in the bar. At 8:30 PM I had not been seated at a table, complained and was informed that they were doing the best they could do. It appeared uncertain as to when I would be seated so I asked to be allowed to dine in the bar.
I have dined at Brennen's in the past and didn't have such problems. I have used Open Table several times in the past to make reservations at various restaurants and everything has always worked out well with respect to reservations and being seated. I was disappointed with my recent experience at Brennan's.

Food wasnt worth the money. If youre looking for a good breakfast, youd be better off going to a cheap diner. The Bananas Foster was special though, it was cool getting it from where it originated.

Birthplace of Bananas Foster, everything we had here was fantastic - tomato salad w/ crispy kale, the duck, the raviolo, and the BF as mentioned. Service was great, our waiter/sommelier (Sean?) was excellent and gave us an entire history lesson during the BF presentation. Ambiance is excellent - if not hot, the courtyard looked beautiful. Aside from Commander's Palace, this is probably #2 on the list.
