We had a really nice meal. The wine list is huge! Steak Diane cooked table side as well as the bananas foster of course!

I chose to celebrate my birthday at Brennan's and it was the best decision! Our waiter Randy constantly checked on us, our food (blackened redfish and the duck) was fantastic. I really enjoyed the cotton candy birthday treat and of course... the bananas foster! I will definitely visit again.

Outstanding food from a traditional kitchen. Turtle soup, Caesar salad, Gulf fish almandine, rib eye, and bananas foster- all highly recommended Service was weirdly touch and go- a couple servers were veterans- consummate professionals- everyone else was sort of befuddled and a step behind (water took a long time, also when ordering a glass of red wine, two separate servers placed glasses in front of me- one white, one red, and then a third poured my red wine into the white glass- not bothersome- more funny). Highly recommend.

I’ve heard about the service and quality of Brennan’s all my life. It lived up to every (high) expectation and I’m so glad I booked for breakfast.

I asked them for a LOT of special requests to make the dinner special for my girlfriend's birthday. They went above and beyond what I asked and made the night fun and memorable. Those people really care for the customers, and it is greatly appreciated. And of course the food was absolutely amazing.

Celebrating a friend’s birthday which is always special at Brennan’s. That and because this was her first time there are the reasons we chose it! I was disappointed it wasn’t a full lunch menu and found the portions to be very small. One of us ordered the Ceasar salad as her meal and it proved to be a disappointment especially since no protein was offered as an add on.

This is such a special place in the French Quarter. From the decor to the impeccable and well trained but warm and personable staff, this restaurant charms. The food is always very good (I had redfish, wonderfully layered with crab and cilantro sauce, exquisite). Don't miss their special champagne cocktails while seated in the courtyard after lunch.

The bananas foster experience is worth a trip to Brennan’s. Randy does such an amazing job of flaming the dish. Only reason not all fives we had to ask for a house salad because it’s not listed on the menu and two items on the menu they were out of. Neither should happen at such a high end restaurant like Brennan’s.

We used the short breakfast menu - 2 appetizers; 2 egg dishes. Added a pear cocktail. It was all very good.

Disappointed: Very watered down bloody Mary, gumbo just average. Servers forgot drinks, forgot us, had to be flagged down. Surprising as we had expected much better.

Breakfast at Brennan's is the perfect place to celebrate a birthday! The romantic Southern ambience, the impeccable service, and the delicious meals are beyond wonderful. And no one treats the birthday girl with a more special occasion than the staff at Brennan's. Thank you so much for a very lovely experience!!

Ate breakfast here many years ago and finally had the chance to visit again. Once again we received excellent food, friendly and efficient staff, and a beautiful, quiet setting. The only regret I have is that we did not save room for dessert! Next time we’ll make two reservations so we can go for a long walk after breakfast and then return for the dessert menu!

We had cocktails in the bar area prior to dinner. Beautiful Decor, excellent cocktails and friendly staff. Service at dinner was adequate, wines were a bit pricey but good. Three of us had the special of the day, Steak Diane which was excellent! The fourth in our party had the scallops which were also quite good. Salad was fresh and crisp, appetizers and rolls were hot. Both the Irish coffee and Bananas Foster were wonderful.

Fabulous! Celebrated my birthday. The service was great, the food was great and I'd definitely recommend this for a special occasion.

I had the Steak Diane cooked table side along with the Banana Foster's dessert, also cooked table side. Yummy

PS They have me a special surprise for my special day... Not telling what it is... 😋

Food was very good on the whole but it feels like Brennan’s has become a bit of a tourist trap pricing wise. Not a place looking to cater to customers they are hoping will be repeat customers

The food is as good as ever but feel the service has slipped a little. No more Tuxes on waiters at Brunch and small service details not as sharp - ie. crumbs not swept off table. If you’d never been here before you wouldn’t have noticed. The mark of a great Benedict is the consistency of the yolk and they were perfect. Bananas Foster as showy and delicious as ever. Will we be back? Of course!
