Wow! The service we received at Brennan's was top-notch! Roy and Joy, along with the whole team, were attentive, helpful, and fun! We ate in the wine cellar which was absolutely stunning. They accommodated my children with delicious kid options. The adult's meals were decadent and beautiful. We all enjoyed our entire visit immensely. This will be a dinner my kids will remember for the rest of their lives.

Brennan’s has reopened and has managed to do so with the same attention to detail they have always had. We had an excellent meal, weren’t rushed and found our server both pleasant and entertaining. If you are planning a trip to NOLA book your brunch at Brennan’s early! Absolutely worth it!

It’s hard to find a fresh clean salad in the French Quarter, but theirs was excellent! The shrimp and grits are also outstanding. We enjoyed going through the cocktail list as well.

I surprised my boyfriend and took him to New Orleans for his birthday as he had never here before. A few friends told me to take him to Brennan’s. Was a great experience and I can’t remember our servers name but he was great!
Everyone was friendly and accommodating!

The food was not as fabulous as expected. Our waiter seemed more annoyed with us than anything. I've been to many great restaurants and expected more for my $300.

Our experience at Brennan’s was not good. The food was mediocre at best and the service was disheveled and slow. Brennan’s reputation may be great but for me it was a waste of time and money. There was nothing ’legendary’ about our meal or service.

Best meal we had in New Orleans. Best service and ambiance as well. John took amazing care of us and had so many wonderful recommendations. We were NOT disappointed! This place is a MUST if you visit the French Quarter. Make a reservation to avoid the disappointment of not getting seated. Be sure and leave room for dessert, the bananas foster is amazing!

I made a 12:30 reservation. We were seated close to 1. We were given drinks relatively quickly. The server poured the coffee for us (which was very good french press) but it spilled all over my purse. They did apologize and offer to pay for cleaning. Our food was ordered about 1:15 - 1:20. It did not arrive until 2 pm. The food was overall good. However, don't order the french toast or bacon. In my opinion, they were not good. We loved the ambiance but found the service lacking...

The food was amazing, as expected. Service left a lot to be desired. Lack of attentiveness in general. We had to flag down a server to ask if our appetizers were ready. They were, but had just been sitting. Same thing for our drinks. Server had failed to enter order for several items that we ordered, so some of us were eating appetizers while others were eating main course. Plus, it took forever to get in and out. Our party of 4 was ready to order immediately and we ate our courses quickly. However, it took a full 2 hours to get in and out from the time we sat down. It was my first experience at Brennan’s, and I expected great things considering the reviews and their history. I left feeling that the experience was only average as compared to most other restaurants in the French Quarter. Especially considering the price for brunch.

Food was good but took way too long to come to the table. Probably close to an hour and 15 minutes just to get tan appetizer. So hungry by the time food came that it ruined the experience.

The wait staff was very polite and articulate. But that didn’t help the service timing.

Enjoyed our other meals at less named restaurants better. Would not go back

As a long-time patron of Brennan's, I was shocked and disappointed at the service. My best friend and I came over from Houston to celebrate our birthdays together and the service was terrible. Our waiter disappeared after taking our order and turned us over the rest of the meal to essentially the person who fills the water glasses and clears the plates. Nothing was done dessert-wise for our birthday yet other tables had the cotton candy birthday treat. We watched as our waiter fawned over and took special care of the table next to us celebrating a birthday but he had virtually nothing to do with us. We had had a lovely trip to New Orleans and that dinner was going to be culmination but instead it left us on a sour note and we will not be going back there again. We love the Houston location of Brennan's where the service and special celebrations are done with much more attention.
