    Wonderful service and delightful atmosphere! Much better than a few years ago. For our anniversary, they striped our table with a green ribbon and served a complimentary glass of sparkling rose.

    Disappointed. I made the mistake of entrusting the venerable Brennans with our last meal in Nola. We were so excited to eat at brennans. We were seated in one of their lovely dining rooms and ordered cocktails. Our waiter seemed to be over stretched and wasn’t quite curt but definitely harried. We ordered appetizers and mains. Wines and champagne. Between the clearing of our entrees to dessert was a good half hour. We finally flagged down our harried waiter to ask for coffee. It took about 10 minutes for the coffee to arrive. We were ready to leave as the dinner had became such a disappointment. We noticed that one table was able to get dessert and their bill quickly while other tables lingered. Our credit cards sat on the table for over 10 minutes after the bill came. We definitely didn’t want a rushed dinner but lingering around as staff comes in and out and sees an empty table is depressing for the amount of money we spent. Sad ending to our Nola trip.

    Had a great anniversary meal at Brennans! Our servers were attentive and knew the menu well. Advised us without it feeling like a ‘sell’. Will definitely go back if in NOLA. The shrimp creole and bread pudding were the highlights, as well as the turtle soup if that’s your thing.

    The service was good. Were seated immediately and it's a beautiful restaurant. Was a little loud, but people were having a good time. Food was a little hit and miss. The crawfish risotto was excellent. The fish almandine was good. The poached lobster was just ok. The size of the lobster was ridiculously small and the tail was overcooked.

    The food was delicious, the setting was charming, and the company was great. If I could recommend one thing to Brennan's it would be ongoing customer service training for the wait staff. Our waitress never smiled, there wasn't a welcoming to the restaurant, no eye contact, never confirmed a question with the bar regarding a particular liqueur requested, and our family felt unattended. The attendant assisting our waitress cleared our table while my daughter and I were still eating. Now my experience could have been an exception to many other diner's experiences, but I felt a little disappointed. My husband and I dined at Brennan's in 2002 and had an amazing time and we had wanted to share our great memories with our adult children in 2024, but I guess some things do change. A restaurant's great customer service is part of the formula to enjoying a night out dining. I would recommend to others, as I hope their waiter/waitress customer service is on point.

    Our team had the most wonderful experience at Brennan’s. From the food to the atmosphere, it was all fabulous. The best part was our incredible server- Rashad. He was so friendly, fun, and upbeat. He made us feel like family and had us laughing. So much so that the night ended with photos with Rashad and hugs.

    Best brunch we’ve ever had! My husband had the Lobster Omelette and I got the Eggs Hussarde. Both were above expectations! The “Derby Day” mint juleps were delicious and the Bayou Boogaloo was a nice refreshing cocktail. Service was excellent! I highly recommend!

    The shrimp was over the top A SALTY!!!! The waitress asked ahead whether I had dietary concerns and I already told her I can’t do too much salt. Why didn’t she tell me before I ordered that the shrimp was salty? Secondly I asked if they had herbal non-caffeinated tea and she names two that contained caffeine. She needs more education regarding the menu. Not enough to just be courteous.
