Brennan’s remains a favorite for family celebrations. The menu is distinctive and the service is second to none. Tonight we celebrated my sons graduation, and they made him feel like a special guest for the evening. They are very good at treating their patrons as guests. Of course we enjoyed the exceptional seafood dishes that no one can compete with. A finish with Bananas Foster made it complete.

My father is hard of hearing and the fellow diners were very rudely loud. We could not have a conversation between us. It seems you could seat large parties away from smaller tables of diners.

Hi,

In my reservation with open table I shared it was our anniversary. Why request that info if it’s not going to be acknowledged. Secondly our waiter was not very welcoming. It was my wife’s first time at Brennan’s and mine as well and he just carried an unenthusiastic manner to himself. My wife and I do a lot of meal sharing and every time I ordered he seemed disappointed from his expression and tone. It wasn’t a memorable night like I had imagined it would be. AP

The food was fantastic. My wife ordered the crab cakes and just raved about them. She normally only eats one but this time she ate both of them.
The waiter was down-to-earth and easy to talk with. Very good conversation between us.

Not up to par during this visit. Food was not as good, the meal was not hot and their signature Bananas Foster was under cooked with the bananas still hard and the ingredients were just not right. Disappointing visit, especially for the price with clients.

Brennan’s has become my birthday tradition. This is the second year my boyfriend brought me to Brennan’s to celebrate my birthday. It was perfect and exactly what I wanted. New Orleans is in my heart. We were greeted warmly when we arrived. The staff wished me happy birthday and assured me they have a lot of my favorite dessert Bananas Foster. Our waiter was fantastic. He has an adorable personality and wonderful sense of humor. My boyfriend and I ordered his two favorite dishes. His knowledge of wine helped us choose the right one to go with our food. The food arrived quickly. I ate every bite! I had never tasted anything like it. The whole experience was perfect. We will be back next year!

We arrived party of two for a Birthday dinner, with a reservation. The upstairs room was okay, but felt a little crowded. The waiter was the worst part of the experience. Although he was pleasant, we waited a while before receiving acknowledgement We asked for bread when we ordered our drinks. We had to ask two more times before we received it. I ordered iced tea, but never received any sweeteners. The soup and meals were good. The prices are fairly high at 55$ for one of our meals and 38$ for the other meal. When we finished the main course, we requested two coffees with cream and sugar, and asked for a dessert menu. We ordered the bread pudding, which was a smallish portion size and arrived before receiving the coffee. When we asked about the coffee, it was clear the waiter had completely forgot we ordered it. The coffee arrived after we were finished the dessert, and it was actually cold. We received the sweetener and cream, but no coffee spoons for stirring the coffee. When we asked for a spoon, we received a large soup spoon, which we had to share. At this point, my husband complained to the manager. He came to the table and apologized saying" I am sorry you received no sweetener for your tea, or spoon for your coffee, that should have never happened." We still didn't receive any coffee spoons. Then the chef came from the back and was talking with the waiter, right in front of us. He was joking with the waiter that he owed him because he just saved his job, by telling the manager how good a waiter he is. Then he came to our table and said he heard we had a problem and that he wanted to apologize to us. We also witnessed the two waiters talking about people from another table. When all was said and done, the manager did bot even try to comp our coffee.

We were there for a birthday brunch with two children. The wait staff were most attentive to our unique needs, even offering menu suggestions. The children each got fresh fruit, pancakes and scrambled eggs, and ice cream fir desert. Not bad for a 3 and a one year old. We were given the option to change each course of the suggested brunch menu to our preferences.
When the children became restless our waiter hurried the next course. We had a very enjoyable experience and will return soon.

Always been a fan. Crab cakes are the best in town! But I have to say, as many times as I've been there...the waiters are not that great! Water boys, bus boys, etc. .. they are great!! The main waiters...not so much. And it's every time I go there. They just look miserable. No smiles, nothing. And the service...(rolling eyes)...slow and the bare minimum. I mean for the prices here...people should get better service! I feel like these waiters have been there since it opened! They need a fresh energetic wait staff. It's ridiculous! That is the only thing I hate about going there...THE WAIT STAFF! UGH!!

Always a great place to eat whatever the occasion. We especially like before a show at the Hobby or Alley theaters because of the free shuttle bus that drops you and picks you up right at the door. I'd rather spend my money on food and drink than on valet parking.

After being seated, the wait staff spilled water on us. Within 2 more minutes, the wait staff spilled red wine on us. We were then reseated, and things were a bit better, however I expected that at the very least our meal would have been taken care of, however it was only partially taken care of. Needless to say, they ruined what should have been a wonderful evening.

Oh dear, what an unfortunate evening! We have dined at Brennan's for a multitude of special occasions and it has ALWAYS been our favorite place to celebrate. This time the service was so incredibly poor that a member of our party actually spoke to the manager about it. There was a wedding that evening AND a large party in the main dining room, but we have never experienced this level of poor service at Brennan's. They graciously acknowledged the lapse, apologized, and did remove some drinks and dessert charges from the bill. Our food was stellar, as always, so we will forgive a one time lapse in service quality and continue to choose Brennan's as our special dining place!
