Creole
Brennan's menus marry classic Creole traditions with contemporary techniques and are bolstered with contemporary New Orleans influences. First established in 1946, Brennan’s is the birthplace of World-Famous Bananas Foster and the boozy Breakfast is king! Brennan’s old-world elegance, coupled with fancifully renovated decor and pampering service create a unique and sophisticated backdrop for a most memorable meal.

Excellence across the board. Blackened Redfish was the best fish I’ve had. Bananas Foster was an experience. Terrific table service too.

I was dining alone, but the staff made me feel so welcome and were super nice! Food was amazing. I had the scallops, which were perfect. The cocktails were on point. And of course, the Bananas Foster....perfect.

I’ve waited years to try Brennan’s. I wish I hadn’t waited so long. The food and service was beyond what I expected, and I expected a lot. The duck was phenomenal!!!

Food was awesome but never knew who was our real waiter. Out sparkling wine was delivered after our appetizer and various personnel would come by and ask if we needed anything else throughout the meal. Our waiter was. Our waiter was very courteous but we would have enjoyed being served by one and not four.

Excellent service by Sven and his team. Turtle soup was delicious as was the gumbo. Eggs Sardis are the very best. In the past we had enjoyed their unique bread pudding which was the best in New Orleans. This time they had a seasonal pumpkin bread pudding which we did not order, not being fond of the flavor. So a bit disappointed in missing one of the dishes we treasure.

Outstanding service and the food was fantastic. The atmosphere was elegant and seemed to take me back in time with a warm, Deep South feel. I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning the next time I am in New Orleans.

It was my 70th birthday. The help were all very nice. I had a big pink ribbon across my table indicating it was my birthday and I got a cotton candy birthday cake!

The meal was excellent and the bananas Foster was quite a presentation.

Brennan’s service AND FOOD are on the tops list in New Orleans. You can’t come to NOLA and NOT go to Brennan’s. It’s mandatory for me!

No escaping that “Brennan’s for Breakfast” is the best of the best New Orleans has to offer, and has been for decades! .......and best of best nationwide. Food, service (all staff, not just wait staff...a total team effort, extremely well executed). While other Brennan’s restaurants are fantastic, this location is the best!
