Although the food was very good as it had been the other 3 times we were there, we were very disappointed with our reservation. Just two days prior to this visit we requested a table in the front room and were not happy to find out that we could not get a table there. We were told they had other reservations for that room however on our prior visit we were never told that

Everything was perfect. Service was amazing. Food was awesome. Waitress had great recommendations. I love that I can carry on a conversation easily. Most new restaurants are so noisy it is hard to talk to your companion. not sure how it could have been any better.

Great experience. Dylan and Jenny took care of our table. They were great. The food was all good but the star of our meal was the Bbq shrimp which we shared- too rich not to share. My husband calls the bbq shrimp there the best damn meal in New Orleans. Fabulous!

Wonderful, as usual. We come here every time we are in New Orleans. We had the specked trout dish and the short rib egg dish for brunch, and it was excellent. Drinks are great, and they brought a great treat for my birthday.

Decadent and beautifully presented meals. The flavors were incredible. I will go back every visit. Old world service in a fun and pretty atmosphere. The baked apple & eggs hussarde were so delicious. The French press coffee is good too.

Made us wait 30 min for our reservation. Our server was robotic and liked to aggressively fill our water glasses leaving a puddle behind. They can do better. The Bananas Foster did not disappoint.

A most beautiful experience, both food and decor. Had an early lunch in order to get to airport for flight back home. Had time to kill after lunch, and was offered to leave our personal bags so as to browse the street without carrying them. Everyone on staff was most gracious. The atmosphere was elegant but not stuffy, and a view of the courtyard garden was just a perfect setting setting for a perfect lunch.

Overall, lovely ambience. Great service. Overly salty food. (Shrimp and gumbo). Good drinks, and definitely get the bananas.

We were disappointed in our Brennan’s experience. Like Cafe de Monde, I feel that Brennan’s relies on its reputation, so has gotten lazy on the quality of the experience. Our meals were average. My fish was lacking taste. We had fish at Felix’s earlier in the week that was amazing, and cheaper. The presentation of the banana foster was lackluster and the flavor was ok. Our friends were finished with their desserts by the time the cart showed up to begin our Foster preparation. I will not return nor will I recommend Brennan’s to others. There are too many other fine choices in NOLA.

Food was excellent, customer service could have been better, it seemed like most of the servers including the host were in a bad mood. Other then the customer service everything else was good

Enjoyed Brennan’s 49 on our honeymoon. Came back 49 years later and loved it even more. Service was excellent, breakfast superb and the atmosphere wonderful. My Bloody Mary was the best I’ve ever had, the gumbo tasted great and the Marchand de vin sauce on the eggs hussarde was perfect. My wife really liked her punch cocktail too. We’ll be back soon.

Our first time to try Brennan's was well worth it. We were celebrating a birthday and everyone was very attentive to our Birthday girl. They even served a giant cotton candy cake to her, which was very fun! All of our food was great- no one was disappointed with their order. The atmosphere was very relaxing, even though outside the front door it was total chaos. Our only complaint with the service is that 2 in our group ordered coffee with dessert and never got it. We would definitely go back.

Have had brunch at Brennan’s since the 70’s, It has always been a great experience. It seemed like the food was not as good as in previous years and was loud and extremely crowded!

Our head server was Stephanie, and we will ask for her again in future visits.
Her whole team was superb as well.
Breakfast at Brennan’s is a magical experience: The food is unusual and delicious.
