It was such a wonderful experience at Brennan’s. We attended for my sisters 35th birthday. The food was delicious. The service was excellent! The price was reasonable for what you were getting. I will always recommend to anyone who is visiting New Orleans to visit Brennan’s.

While the food was good, there were a few things on the menu that were not available. They couldn’t make an espresso or a chai. They didn’t have the melon salad. The service was slow. But, again, the food was good. We enjoyed everything we had.

Food was just okay for the price tag put on them. Service was good— almost too clingy. We came for an early dinner, so it was quiet. I am not sure if I would return to this specific restaurant, knowing there are other greater restaurants within walking distance.

Our brunch was spectacular! The champagne/ pear cocktail was so tasty, as were our main entrees. And the bananas foster did not disappoint! We will definitely return, and hopefully dine in their beautiful courtyard again.

The servers were very nice and accommodating. The person at the hostess stand...I didn’t get his name, was rude! He was not friendly at all but the servers made up for his attitude and gave us very nice service. The bananas fosters was amazing. Make sure you have a reservation and your clear with your requests.

Always a treat. The maître d’hôtel was frazzled but hey aren’t they all. Once seated what a great experience. Waiter knew his cocktails and they came as advertised. We’re in NOLa (right?) so we had Sazeracs. Best ones we’ve ever had. Turtle soup with brandy, oyster j’aime terrific. Entrées -dusted redfish and smoked scallops perfectly done. Had to had the banana foster, perfect presentation, the waiter even suggested the slo-mo setting for our iPhone video. Now that’s a real pro.

We love this iconic restaurant, but we’re so sadly disappointed with eating here on our trip from out of town. Our service was odd; I never even knew exactly who our server was, so many different people came to our table. And we didn’t order a single item that was very good. The Caesar salad was literally four tiny pieces of uncut lettuce, the shrimp appetizer included a single shrimp, the redfish was lacking in any type of flavor and just awful. I couldn’t eat it. We ended up going down the street for more food afterward.
I’d like to excuse it because of covid, but that can’t explain everything.

Invited my friend for her 30th birthday to Brennan’s. From beginning to end, so amazing! The service is next level, everyone would wish my friend a happy birthday. It was very nice! Excellent food as well! Must order to turtle soup & the bananas foster!

For any of you locals reading this review I hope that you will support the restaurant. Fine dining spots are suffering so it is imperative that we patronize such venues. They have created events and specials which make it easy to do so. I had the $55 three course lobster dinner which was outstanding. Loved the lobster chowder and the poached lobster with ravioli. The ravioli stuffed with foie gras and spare rib was so delicious I hope it becomes a permanent addition to the menu.
They have done a wonderful job maintaining safety and atmosphere. Go enjoy!

Did not like the area we were seated. Service was not at the expected level. i.e. Coffee was served but no spoons at table, toke over 5 min to get spoons and milk. Also, some items on menu not available which was disappointing.
