Brennan's give you the feeling that you are actually in New Orleans at one of the famous restaurants. The service is always good and the food is consistently good. Although I didn't do this time, I highly recommend the jazz brunch on Sunday. Is is very unique and an awesome experience.

This has been one of the finest restaurants in the world. Post Katrina, they really were amazing with food, service, and ambiance.

Quite frankly, I was sorely disappointed by our experience Saturday night. The menu was so limited we had trouble finding something to eat. Six appetizers and 8 entree’s is very disappointing. I had to apologize to my family for bringing them there.

I’m not sure what has happened, but I’m not bringing my family back until they return to excellence. There are way too many great restaurants in New Orleans.

We had a most amazing Brunch at Brennan’s. Items enjoyed included Brandy Milk Punch, Oyster’s J’aime, turtle soup, seafood gumbo and the waitress presented us with a lagniappe of lucious avocado toast topped with crabmeat. For main dishes we had eggs hussarde. The hollandaise is very lightly flavored and the Marchand de vin sauce was to die for. One of our party had Redfish St. Charles and had his eggs scrambled. None left a morsel. And to end the meal we had 2 orders of banana’s foster split among the four of us. In addition, very good COVID protocols in place and we felt safe.

We went to brunch for my wife’s 40th birthday and all the staff made a point to wish her a Happy Birthday. At the end of our meal they brought her fresh cotton candy with a cake. Food was also excellent. Best service you can ask for.

Food was great but pricey. We went to 6he bar to wait for our table. Three girls came in and were very loud. Had too much to drink. I would go again but would be more vocal about any issue.

Went on a Thursday for the special 3 course crawfish menu. Amazing. The crawfish pie in particular was hands down the best I’ve ever had. The restaurant also has a lovely courtyard that’s a great place to spend an evening.

I had not been to Brennan's in over 30 years. It was better than my last visit as the restaurant has kept their mainstay items - you must get the Bananas foster and try turtle soup - but has made changes all with success. Their brunch is such a treat that you are typically sitting next to locals as well as tourists. Cocktails are creative and food is so yummy. Probably the best hollandaise anywhere. My family travels a lot and my children said this was one of their top 5 meals ever.

Other than a hiccup of seating us at a table that wasn't properly cleaned before our arrival, the ambiance, the food, and the cocktails were simply outstanding. Fantastic brunch place that deserves a return visit.

If you go to New Orleans, and do not go to Brennan's, I believe you wasted your trip. At least have Bananas Foster there! One of the great dining experiences.

Food and quality was underwhelming. Served a loaf of uncut bread wrapped in towel, sugary drinks, scallops were a tad sandy. Decent service, although not what you would expect of fine dining. Overall not worth the prices.
