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.

The food and service was exceptional. A must stop when in New Orleans. If you’re there for breakfast you can’t go wrong with Eggs Owen. Worth a plane ticket for the meal. Just fabulous.

For most cities, this would be a 5star experience, but not for New Orleans. The service was very good, and the food was good, but it did not rise above the level required to be memorable.

This place was our last stop when visiting NOLA. The food was delicious. The ambiance is beautiful! The steak flambé was really cool but be very clear about the temperature because it is pretty well done when cooked at the table. The gumbo was delicious!

Artistic, flavorful and exceptionally presented meal from start to finish including one of the best bananas foster we've ever had. Warm and welcoming environment with genuine care towards their guests needs, above and beyond just a restaurant. The manager noticed we were admiring the classic staircase, personally took us on a tour of the private dining areas upstairs as he talked us through the rich history of the building, once the home of an aristocratic family deeply rooted in New Orleans. You couldn't ask for a better ending to an already perfect evening through this above & beyond dining and celebratory experience.

Can’t beat the service or the ambiance at Brennan’s. Wait staff is smooth and professional with old world deference and style. The place looks better than ever since the remodel without losing the charm and sense of history. If you’re looking for an elegant meal you have to give Brennan’s a visit.

The service was impeccable and the food was exceptional. The only thing I would ask is that the menu online be updated when it is changed. I was looking forward to having the rack of lamb but it had been taken off the menu. However, the scallops were phenomenal and the flan/cup custard was the best I had ever tasted. My husband and I were celebrating our Anniversary and the champagne and other special treats was a lovely touch.
I am going to take a friend there in a week to celebrate her birthday.

A lovely restaurant with very attentive servers. The food quality was excellent. The serving sizes were not good. 16.00 for 4 raw oysters on a bed of salt. 32.00 for 4 scallops and a spoon full of sauteed greens. No sides. Increasing portion size and adding sides would go a long way!

Brennan’s is a classic and lots of people go to celebrate. Our lunch didn’t meet our expectations; our server barely acknowledged us, didn’t welcome us or explain the menu. The food was delicious and beautifully presented but I expect WOW for a $75 lunch for 2. There are so many options in New Orleans, I wish our experience would have been more memorable.

I was SO disappointed. The service was awful, the waiter dropped the check literally moments after he messed up the bananas foster. The empty dishes sat on the table for a half hour, only to be replaced by some rando busboy bringing our entrees. The blackened fish tasted like it was sitting in the warmer for a few hours - I don’t quite recollect calling fish “tough” before. But the waiter pushed a second bottle of the 100 dollar wine we picked only because we asked three times for a wine list.

An epic disappointment. Rare that I see failure at every level from a place with such high esteem.
