Fantastic food and service!
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
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.
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!
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!
Brennan’s is a timeless luxury New Orleans tradition that has successfully mastered the art of 5-star “service”. We celebrated our anniversary with Brennan’s and they truly made us feel like honored guests, fabulous window table, complimentary glass of bubbly and personalized service. Some traditions have faded and become modern conveniences, but Brennan’s is not one of those places. Our celebration was perfect, service, food and ambience. All New Orleans restaurants are “lively” and can be noisy. I do feel like they used great care to seat us in an intimate area with less noise and joie di vie, except ours. We dined at the 3 “ol school” Crown Jewels of NOLA and Brennan’s was the shining star across the board. Don’t miss a chance to experience timeless tradition and luxury.
The bartender was outstanding. After that, so many issues. They do 1/2 price bottles of champagne for happy hour. Problem being the bottles are NV and past their prime. We checked in with hostess when we arrived and let her know we’d be at the bar. Our reservation time arrived and hostesses started gathering people to move to their tables, even some who didn’t have reservations. We had to ask if our table was ready. They looked surprised. Then they seated us at a table right by or of the exit doors to the garden. It was cold. Our server who had worked there a year and a half was not well informed about the wines by the glass list or the cocktails. She did talk us into the steak diane which we hadn’t seen on a menu in years, especially not prepared tableside. She did not seem comfortable making our dish and it was apparent. Never checked back on us to see how thing were either. So many other red flags.
John was amazing. Terrific service and fun lunch.
It was amazing
We had a lovely brunch and really enjoyed the ambiance. The Bananas Foster were as good as advertised.
It was so very nice and the food was delicious. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and Brennan's made it very special.
Great total experience !!! John , our waiter , was excellent.
Great service and meal
Gumbo was outstanding. Redfish was delish! Service spectacular. I'll be back.
We tried the signature dishes (Hussaurd benedict and turtle soup) and they were delicious as expected. The service and staff were remarkably generous and happy... we were even lucky enough to get an unexpected private tour of the property that fast became a highlight of our NOLA trip. Must go. Be sure to make reservations in advance.
Was a great spot for a nice brunch. Server was excellent with his knowledge of the restaurant and very charismatic. Be ready to spend some money for good food! Must get espresso martini for breakfast they know how to make a great one. Would recommend to all.
Beautiful place, delicious food, terrific service...cannot beat it!
Finished up our New Orleans weekend with breakfast at Brennan's and it was the culinary highlight of the trip. Great service, classic ambiance and lots of butter, bananas, brown sugar, dark rum and fire to make for a memorable finish to a great meal.
Brennan’s is simply the BEST in New Orleans! Great menu, wonderful service and you can’t miss their signature Bananas Foster.
Amazing! I went for my Bachelorette party and our server, John, made it so special!
All food in New Orleans is great, but we'll sure be bragging about the food at Brennan's. Thank you for making a simple brunch an incredible experience!
Went for brunch with a group of 8 on a Monday. Service was great and the food was very good but it was extremely slow. Took more than 2.5 hrs for a meal with a lot of dead space. The restaurant wasn’t very busy and our orders were very straightforward. Good was delicious, but servings small for price.
French Quarter Must!! Terrific service, knowledgeable staff.
Phenomenal!!!!! Fantastic!!!! Delicious!!! Beautiful!! We very much enjoyed our brunch at Brennan's! The only disappointing thing was that we were too full to order banana's foster!! Next time for sure!
Food, experience. All New Orlean. Iconic
This place was LOVELY!!! The food was amazing and the service was even better!! We celebrated my birthday there and they made me feel soooooo special. I would definitely go back. this was such a charming restaurant. I absolutely fell in love with it.
Randy was amazing! We enjoyed the overall experience and atmosphere! The food was excellent as was our service!
Excellent breakfast. Service was a bit slow, but ambience was wonderful.
The food was incredible, meals were spaced out apart but worked well to give time for food to digest before having to dig into another dish. Drinks we delicious especially the sparkling strawberry, a taste drink that slowly sneaks up on you. Overall would easily recommend to anyone traveling to New Orleans.
Wow! What an unbelievable brunch! We were a party of 8, experienced no problems, had the best service and everyone raved about thr food!
Really good food, great staff that were very helpful. Only critique was food was not cold, but not super warm either. Banana's foster is a must! They do it table-side which is awesome.
