Waited 40 minutes for a drink and another 20 for bread. It was extremely noisy and clearly a tourist trap. Food was okay but nothing special. It doesn’t look anything like the pretty pictures online. What a disappointment. Would not go back!!
Great experience... Food was outstanding ... Bananas Foster tableside how can you go wrong
Best place we ate in New Orleans. Everything we had was delicious. Staff was amazing. We would definitely recommend!
Just a wonderful dining experience overall. Excellent unhurried service, great food, great setting.
Thank you for giving us such a wonderful dining experience!
Not just good "food" but an "experience". A must do when in New Orleans.
Delicious food, impeccable service. Milk punch was a good eye opener. Don’t miss this.
I was with a group of 8 women for brunch on a Monday, and Brennan’s met every our expectation from the moment we walked in the door. We were shown to our table right away, and the room we were seated in was gorgeous. The food and drinks were delicious. What made the meal a true experience was the top notch service. Our server, John, was attentive and made perfect recommendations about food choices. Staff then delivers your food like a parade - multiple people bringing out the entire table’s food at one time with great efficiency. John then made bananas foster a show just for us - it was entertaining to hear the story behind the dessert and watch John masterfully make it table-side. I will now measure every restaurant against this experience, and it will be hard to beat.
The service was very good and the food was fresh. The woman that made our bananas foster was a joy!
My family and I had an overall decent time. But servers should be trained on touching back to check on tables. Our service was slow there were missed opportunities to impress us and sell us more cocktails! It was a whomp whomp moment for sure! We will be looking elsewhere for a fabulous brunch spot in Nola next visit!
We ate at Brennan’s several years and I couldn’t forget the oysters Benedict. We decided to spend our 25th anniversary in New Orleans and we had to do it at Brennan’s. They didn’t have the oysters Benedict. But I was able to have them on a delicious fried artichoke. It was even better than I remembered.
I told them it was our anniversary and we were treated royally.
Glasses of champagne and everyone that came to our table wished us a happy anniversary.
The Bananas Foster was a show we never tire of. A perfect end to a perfect meal.
Absolutely everything we remembered from prior visit....just a superb experience
Outstanding brunch! Our table overlooked the courtyard....just beautiful. Service was wonderful.
Classic NOLA restaurant & always delicious. Get the turtle soup
We really enjoyed the customer care you provided We will return.
Birthdays and everyday dining
Food was great and drinks were good as well. However, the service was TERRIBLY SLOW. We waited over 20 mins for our waitress to get the check after we asked her. It was fine to have the meal slower paced, but it got ridiculous. they definitely had trouble splitting the bill just 4 ways.
Wonderful place to dine in. Superb food and excellent service.
Amazing experience! Food was superior! Turtle Soup. Rabbit Rushing. Crawfish eggs etc. Great drinks. Excellent service. Thanks !
Fantastic food and service!
Lived every minute of our experience! Everything was awesome!
Brennan's was an amazing restaurant! The food food and service were absolutely fabulous! If you are in New Orleans, you have to I dulge yourself with a trip to Brennan's!
Brennan’s is quintessential New Orleans. The food was excellent. The service was top-notch.
Stellar service in a charming setting. I had the table side bananas foster experience for breakfast and it was a delightful treat for the senses. Thick chicory coffee and some brandy milk punch made for a sweet, indulgent start to my day. My husbands eggs Benedict was cooked absolutely perfectly. This Nola classic is still the best.
We’re going back for the French toast. No really, we are. It’s the best thing I’ve ever eaten. I can’t get the smoked bacon of my mind. The waiter was a retired navy guy who waits tables for fun. You could tell he loved his job. Nothing better than someone who loves their job. We’ll see you in the morning for round two.
Food was just OK, maybe we were expecting more not sure , great atmosphere and the drinks were great from the roost bar, dinner wasn’t quite what we expected though... they did give us complimentary champagne since it was our anniversary and the courtyard was amazing... I think we will go back for brunch and bananas foster to give them another chance , hate to leave a bad review but it is what it is
Not good. Came for my birthday. Nearly impossible to get drinks. Ordered drinks. Got appetizers before they came out. Ordered a wine for our meals. Came out after we were done eating. Frustrating and expensive experience. Hard to enjoy our meals waiting for a drink. Server seemed to busy to take care of us. Food was ehhh. Considering the cost of the meals here they should provide better service. Won’t be returning.
5 stars in everything except for service. Hats off to the culinary team! Amazing food thank you!

We were there for a special weekend. We flew in from NY for our daughters first birthday weekend. NOLA is our favorite city. Our server was very absent the entire time. We placed our order and then he didn’t come back after the food was dropped. My mother and mother in law wanted another Bloody Mary and my husband had ordered an IPA prior. Our order was incomplete and our server never once checked on our entree. Not once. Typically a step of service should be a “2 bite rule” meaning check back ASAP to see if everything is to expectation. I had to ask the back server for my husbands IPA (which had to be sitting at the bar) and for the bacon order. I forgot our servers name but mgmt can look up the table assigned to which server via open table reservation. He dropped the check on the table without offering desert/coffee as our entrees hadn’t been picked up. He apologized as he said he was told we wanted the check. That’s how absent he was. He was very condescending. I personally think he wanted to be a writer for Food and Wine and wasn’t able to connect with his guests. I understand the industry but not everyone knows different cooking techniques and sauces. We asked a question about some pendants behind us and he was extremely rude basically assuming we wanted to know if they were famous. No. We were curious about their pins as they were very pronounced. I am member of several organizations and I am thrilled when people ask what medal or pin stand for. He was unprofessional, arrogant, cordial and is lacking basic service training. He needs to be reminded he is in the hospitality industry. This was the last reservation had for the weekend and unfortunately it left such a bad taste. However; we will be back as we love this restaurant!!!!The culinary team drives this house!!!Excellent Food bring guests back despite bad service.
Alway fantastic. Fantastic ambiance and service.
Restaurant has a great ambiance. Food choices were very nice. They made our 8 year old son feel very special for his 8th birthday. He loved getting the apron and the dessert.
Came for brunch the day after Valentines Day and the service was outstanding. Promptly greeted upon sitting and consistently checked on throughout our meal. On top of it all, the Bananas Foster dessert completes the entire meal.
Great menu, great food and knowledgeable, professional fabulous service! A special place!
They took amazing care to make sure our experience was exceptional! The food and ambience where a perfect experience of southern hospitality and cuisine!
I went with my husband on Valentine's Day for dinner. Fantastic food! Phenomenal service with Gordon!
Fabulous food, great service, amazing atmosphere. We went to several high end restaurants in New Orleans and Brennans was the best.
Flawless service. The food was perfect. The BEST I’ve ever had. Thank you!!
They are everything that Antoine’s is Not ! We had a great 5 star meal on Valentine’s Day. I would highly recommend them.
Six of us went for a Valentine Brunch. Food was spectacular, and service was delightful with the exception of one strawberry sparkling wine that never arrived. After asking two different servers about it a drink eventually arrived. Unfortunately it was plain sparkling wine. When our waitress saw it she was clear that it was the wrong drink and asked for that to be corrected. Someone from the bar took the partially consumed drink, added some strawberry and brought the half glass back to our table. Surprisingly unprofessional compared to the caliber of service we expected and received for the rest of our meal.
The Brennan's ship has sailed. So many better choices in New Orleans. Tired.
The food was outstanding, and what a great place for a special occasion. In town with friends and it was a big hit with them, since it was their first trip to New Orleans. I will be back!
