I had a wonderful birthday dinner at Brennan’s. We were seated immediately upon arrival to a nice socially distanced table in an upstairs room. This restaurant is really great for social distancing in general because of all the different rooms they have on two levels. All of the staff were attentive to our needs and service was flawless and seamless. The food was absolutely delectable from the turtle soup, to the gumbo, to the Caesar salad and our entrées. Everything was absolutely divine. For my birthday, they brought a nice delicious sweet treat. I will definitely return here again. Stellar everything!

We were greeted warmly and graciously upon arrival. All Covid protocols were followed. Waitstaff was friendly and knowledgeable. Menu is a bit limited due to Covid occupancy but delicious. My only complaint was there was a table of drunk 30-something’s that were loud and dropped the “Fbomb” continuously. The manager spoke to them twice. I’m not sure what the solution to this problem is. I can say if my parents, grandparents or children were with us, we would have gotten up and left the restaurant. We did not expect that kind of clientele at Brennan’s. The manager was apologetic and did comp our dessert.

My dining experience was everything I expected based on past reviews and word of mouth. What I didn't expect was how nice and quiet it was. It was truly a relaxing experience...a respite from the hustle and bustle from the city streets. Of course the food was out of this world delicious.

Our experience was excellent!!!! One of the absolute highlights of our trip!!! Our waitresses were incredible - so attentive, knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, kind, hospitable and so much more! Our waitresses were Cindy (who had an awesome accent) and a sharp brunette with blue eyes and a short ponytail whose name is escaping us! We sat in the Kings Room with the Rex paraphernalia. The ambiance was fun and classy (loved the jazz music!) and the food, linens, flatware and plates were delicious and beautiful, respectively. Would 100% recommend to a friend! We were celebrating a birthday and they went above and beyond to make the birthday girl feel so special.

Our dinner was nothing less than fabulous and the service was impeccable. Our primary waitress Lauren was such a joy as well as all of the staff ! My husband and I wrapped up our evening by sharing a toffee pudding and an expression martini that was nothing like I have ever tasted! Amazing

We make this restaurant our go-to when in New Orleans. Their wine selection is really deep across the board. We enjoy their entrees selection and the appetizers are perfect. And for the dessert there’s nothing as good as their world-famous Bananas Foster!

Second time at Brennan's. Food is outstanding. First time I came here the was very good but this time the service was very slow. And it wasn't because the place was busy or because of covid. People sat down after us and had ordered and received their meals before we even ordered. Waited a long time for a drink and even longer for server to come back to take our order. Took quite some time to clear plates and get the check too. Server just seemed not to care. I was not in a rush but the slow, inattentive service did not meet our expectations of this fine dining experience. However the food was excellent.

Drinks took forever. Food portions were small. Loud door slammed behind us a hundred times. Service staff was pleasant, but overwhelmed. Just nowhere near worth the money

Our waiters were friendly and helpful when ordering drinks and food. My husband tried the rabbit leg and really enjoyed it. I ordered the trout and it was very tasty. We will definitely be coming back when we visit a third time. If you’re thinking of visiting Brennan’s, DO IT, you will not regret it!

Excellent ambiance. Each room was a different color including an outside area / patio. Food was as good as I’ve ever had. Steak was cooked perfectly and the other stuff (which I didn’t even know what most of it was) was a perfect compliment to the main dish. My wife had scallops that were perfectly tender, buttery and charred. We had the dessert that was invented there - bananas foster.

Prices were reasonable for the quality of the food and atmosphere. Highly recommend!!

I will visit Brennan’s again. Tonight for New Years Eve was a disappointment!! I have NEVER had bad food in New Orleans until tonight. The three course truffle menu was not executed well. The risotto and main course with chicken were underwhelming to put it nicely. I told management of my disappointment in the lackluster meal!! Service was amazing!! Staff was very professional and courteous!! I feel this was an off night! I will visit Brennan’s again in the future!!

My family and I dined at Brennan’s on New Year’s Eve. During this trip, we have dined at most of the iconic NOLA restaurants and Brennan’s was hands down our favorite of all. The food was great from the appetizers to the main course, followed by the famous bananas foster. Our dining experience was elevated by the excellent service provided by our waiter, Joe. Great experience.

They were out of 2 of the 4 dishes we ordered, which was upsetting. One was french toast which is really hard to run out of, considering you just guy buy more bread and eggs. The food and the waiter were just good, but you expect both to be outstanding. I had been excited to try the "new" Brennan's and it was just meh.

It has been awhile since we had breakfast at Brennan’s. Absolutely nothing has changed. Wait staff always on point. Food that will make you moan. Pricey but part of the cost is the experience and ambiance.
