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.
It was my birthday and wedding anniversary we needed something a bit away from people as my husband is a cancer patient from the moment we walked in it was just an amazing experience the food was amazing and I just felt welcomed and taken care of 200%
Fun server, nice greeting from head waiter or manager (did not inquire). Great evening.
My husband surprised me with an anniversary trip to New Orleans and this was one of our must stop spots and I couldn’t have been happier in our pick. The food was amazing and the waitstaff was exceptional.
Birthday for my wife. She loved the cotton Candy with cake hidden inside.
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!
The service was off the chart fantastic! Celebrated our anniversary and we were blown away by how well we were treated. Thanks for a memorable evening.
Food and service were excellent
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.
The staff did an incredible job of making us feel special.
I enjoyed the food and ambience of this restaurant. The aesthetic is unique and fun, and the food was delicious and worth every calorie. I ordered the eggs Benedict and the brioche French toast, along with the classic New Orleans style coffee. I would definitely return to try more dishes. The service was well-timed and friendly. 10 out of 10 experience!
Amazing experience across the board
Brennan’s went above & beyond to make this birthday dinner SUPER special! They gave us the Queen’s room upstairs where we could dine privately & go out on the balcony. It made for a very memorable, special night!
Alfredo provided excellent service. Crawfish & asparagus omelette is just missing a sauce or something to jazz it up. A bit on the pricey side but service makes the experience.
Great server. Excellent food
Service was mediocre. I ordered fish and it was over cooked. The banana foster was fabulous though.
Great food and service! A must in New Orleans!
Celebrated a birthday with happy hour and dinner in the courtyard ... and it will always be remembered. Excellent service, food, drink, and atmosphere. Thank you Brennan’s!!!
Outstanding service and setting. Every part of the dining experience was exceptional. A must do when in NOLA!
Sometimes famous places don’t deserve the fanfare. This oils institution was very nice. Bananas Foster was great.
I try to eat at your restaurant whenever I am in town and have done so a couple of times before over the last 7-8 years. Love everything about Brennan's so wanted to take my friends there this time as well. I definitely understand that this may still be a result of the covid-19 ripple effect, but it did not seem the same sadly. Perhaps with social distancing and things spread out the atmosphere just wasn't as vibrant. And the best way to describe the overall feel is the staff seemed to be half-stepping. With only 7 dinner sections on the menu to start because of the times, two seafood items were "sold out" at our 7:30pm reservation on a Saturday. This left us with very limited choices. Finally, for the first time ever, even the Banana Fosters were off. The bananas either weren't ripe or the whole thing did't caramelize and create that usual crunch followed by the perfect softness of the banana. However, Lauren was a delight, but overall, to be honest, it just wasn't what I had hoped for. Hoping now that things will bounce back and return to that illusive normal and we will be back as well. Thank you. . .
We had a wonderful waitress, the food was excellent. We will return.
We had brunch at Brennan’s celebrating my birthday. It was amazing! The food was delicious, the service spectacular and the entire experience was one to remember. I highly recommend Brennan’s whether your celebrating a special occasion or if you’re just looking for a nice place to have dinner with someone special.
Excellent food with very funky rooms that all tell a different story!
Outstanding service. Milk punch and NO style coffee was delicious. I ordered eggs Hussarde and it was amazing! This place is fabulous!
My first time at Brennan’s and it exceeded my expectations. The service impeccable, the food fabulous and we were sat in the open air courtyard, which was unbelievably magnificent! Such a night to remember!
Absolute wonderful drink and food! The service was very good!
Great food. Nice experience. Everyone needs to go at least once
Great food and ambiance, we sat out near the courtyard and it is just beautiful. The service started a little slow, but they may have been letting us relax and enjoy our company. Then once we ordered we never had the ask for a thing, great service. We enjoyed everything we had.
Everything was fabulous. The price is high, but the food & service is excellent!
Great service and fantastic food!
Disappointed. Made reservation weeks ago and we were in the room right of front door. Mediocre ambiance. Service was ok, but nothing special. I left a very generous tip nonetheless and later wondered why.
Great food, everyone Super Nice ! Highly recommend
The breakfast entrees were not very good. Maybe we ordered the wrong dishes. We took the recommendations from our waitress. Truffle flavor over powered the Croque Madame, which was basically a ham and cheese sandwich. The Eggs Hussarde’s sauce was bitter and we did not think complemented the dish at all. We were so disappointed that we had enough and did not even order the one thing that they are famous for, the banana foster. We will not be going back.
Everything was so perfect! Thank you so much for a wonderful birthday celebration!
Amazing experience every time!
It's so hard to keep it short and simple.
My husband and I went to Brennan's to celebrate our wedding anniversary AND my 45th birthday. Our waitress brought us complementary champagne for our anniversary, a complimentary birthday cake AND a Brennan's apron as a gift!
Where do I start? The ambience was amazing. The restaurant (house) is simply mesmerizing. The food was beyond delicious! The drinks were spectacular. The service was impeccable. Our waitress was amazingly wonderful. She was personable, attentive, friendly, lovely, not over bearing, knowledgeable, etc. The staff was awesome! I mean, everything about our experience there was just spectacular.
All I can say is: if you're in New Orleans, reserve a table. You definitely have to experience it!
We will DEFINITELY be back; l and we will definitely recommend it to friends and family!
Hands down, the best ever!!!
Great location for brunch. Right in heart of French Quarter across from courthouse and near waterfront. Staff was a delight and food was above average. Weather permitting ask for seating in courtyard.
Great experience and service . Loved the bananas foster !
