Wonderful brunch experience. Eggs St. Charles and Caribbean Milk Punch. Service was great. Courtyard seating was wonderful. Perfect Saturday morning experience in New Orleans. So good.

We sat outside next to the speaker and had a hard time hearing the waiter with his mask on and even talking to each other. But the music was great, so we stayed at that table. The food was OK. We both got trout. Even though we ate at 12:30PM, they only were serving breakfast items. A lot of empty tables, so we can assume they are short staffed still. We were too full to get the banana's foster. We want to go back for dinner to see how that is. We are locals and just decided to check them out again.

I would have liked other options for lunch. Maybe a salad with protein or a soup or sandwich like the Bistro. This was more of a brunch. Mostly eggs.

Everything you could’ve possibly imagined and so much more — the only way to describe the famed ‘Breakfast at Brennan’s.’ My girlfriend and I went for her birthday brunch and were blown away by every element of the meal. The eggs hussarde and croque monsieur de jambon were authentic, delicious, and surprisingly affordable(?). The sausage and grits sides were phenomenal as well. And the bananas foster... well.... you already know how that goes! It became famous and much-imitated for a reason, and the original is still best version of it I’ve ever tasted. A masterclass in breakfast dining.

I had the Veal Cheeks and it was a bit disappointing in that the flavor was a bit too dominant. My wife was surprised that the BBQ Shrimp in the Shrimp and Grits weren't thoroughly peeled.

It was absolutely perfect. The jazz quartet play 2 songs one my mother's favorite who is past. The other my favorite. It was the best mother's day celebration I have had. I felt the love. Thank you for a memorable day.

My daughter and I went for the Mother's Day brunch, we had a wonderful time. The food was outstanding as usual and the service was great. They had a small band that went from room to room playing classic New Orleans music, it was a great Mother's Day.

The service was absolutely amazing. I cannot say enough pleasantries about the staff. This was my first dinning experience with Brennan’s. My entire party was not overly thrilled with the taste of the entree’s. The dessert and starters were exceptional. Based on the entree’s, doubtful we would ever return.

We sat in a corner. Probably the worst seating in the entire restaurant. Was not impressed and honestly will never go back, a waste of money (we didn’t really eat anything we ordered). On a positive the wine was nice.

Wonderful place. We got a table looking out on the courtyard, which is beautiful. Marvelous service, just the right level of attentive. The croque madame and the grits were put of this world. An oasis away from the craziness of Bourbon Street.

Brunch at Brennan’s is a must! Dining in the courtyard is ideal when the weather suits. The service is always absolutely perfect. Cocktails, appetizers and entrees were beautiful and delicious. Everyone swore their dish was the best at the table. The people at the table next to us shared it is not a trip to New Orleans unless you have Bananas Foster at Brennan’s. Happy 75th birthday, Brennan’s!

Our party of 7 had a lovely meal in a quiet private alcove overlooking the clear tented garden with our own parlor area. The kids took full advantage of the chess set between courses. The turtle soup and curried crawfish soup were excellent starters. The majority of us had the black bass which was outstanding, but my husband had the short ribs which he also recommends. Dessert was the notorious bananas foster (fabulous) and also the milk & honey dessert that I got only one bite before our son declared it was all his. Our server, Maxwell, was attentive and personable. A wonderful evening.
