Probably the nicest breakfast I have ever eaten in my life and Antoine our waiter was an absolute gentleman. Gave us a lovely history lesson while as cool as a breeze operating a flambé dish.

By far, one of the best dining experiences we've ever had. John could not have been any better. He gave us super suggestions to enhance our experience. He gave us entertaining and informative explanations to signature dishes and overall Brennan's history. It was a definite highlight of our trip to New Orleans and we would highly recommend to everyone who travels there. The elegance and class of the establishment is second to none.

Everything was delicious. Literally, every bite of every dish was really good. It's on the top of my list for places to go back to when in New Orleans.

Service was wonderful, location beautiful and about 75% of the food was good, but my main entree was not good. The server took off the meal, which was unexpected, but appreciated. Overall a good rating, but cannot give a very good or excellent given my dish. However, the other items in our order were excellent.

Food (brunch) was delicious- service was fair to poor- server barely came to our table-his “backup” did more for us in meeting our needs.
The woman who made our bananas foster never once smiled or even spoke to us. We had cameras out ready for the big finish & she did it so quickly with no warning, usually they let you know it’s coming...we barely got a pic.
Very disappointed in a place that usually is so wonderful- service-wise. Will prob not go back next visit. Will try somewhere else.

Excellent brunch experience. Beautiful atmosphere (we ate in the outdoor courtyard), delicious food and great bloody Mary’s. Top notch service for the most part! Memorable part of our trip to NOLA!

I took two grandsons to Brennans which is a favorite of mine. The boys loved it and the waiter was great. He explained the menu to them, took great care of us, and prepared the Bananas Fosters at our table.

My husband and me had been to Brennan’s the first time during a post cruise stay about 10 years ago. I had always heard fabulous stories, so we went and had a wonderful brunch which ended a fantastic trip. This was no different, we love Brennan’s and would go back in a jiffy.

Worst fine dining experience I have ever had by far. This place is supposed to be a Classic New Orleans Institution. We had four different people helping us, did not seem to be any organization. The music was blaring in the courtyard. The appetizer was a joke, 5 little cold tortellini's with some butter broth poured over it. The shrimp n grits were the worst I ever had and the smallest, over cooked shrimp. The trout almandine was a dry and bland small piece of fish (6oz maybe), also the worst I've tasted in town ( diners and all, Coop's bar down the street is much better and bigger), served over a spoonful of tiny little cubed potatoes. I don't treat myself to fine dining but a couple times a year and this was a major disappointment, all under the watch of what appeared to be the owners. It's no wonder this restauranteur family has went their separate ways.

Ate at 5 of the "big" NOLA restaurants in the past week and my partner and I both agreed Brennan's was the best. Highlights were the Caviar & Custard appetizer, and of course the Bananas Foster, which was invented here in 1951. Great service, and good atmosphere.

Have dined at Brennan’s a couple times before and chose it for our anniversary dinner, knowing it would be excellent food and service. Unfortunately, we were wrong. We made our reservation a month in advance yet waited 45 minutes to be sat. The service was inattentive. We each got fish for our entrees and the fish was fishier than canned tuna. The best thing we had was the bread, which we only got because we asked for it and in the past, we never had to. Overall, it was a very disappointing experience.

Brennan's earns its reputation for a great dining experience. The staff were knowledgable, attentive, and courteous. The food was absolutely delicious, and the birthday surprise was a lovely detail at the end of a fantastic meal. Loved the design of the restaurant from the front all the way through. Would definitely celebrate there again.

Brennan’s did not disappoint! Took my son to a Pelicans game for his 13th birthday, and decided to go to Brennan’s as well. Dinner was delicious, and they helped our celebration by bringing out a lovely cake hidden under a huge mound of cotton candy. Service was impeccable. It was a special night!
