My friends and I very much enjoyed our brunch at Brennon's on Friday, June 22nd. We had made a reservation about a week before and were given a lovely table. We even had a baby in a stroller and it was not a problem. We were greeted friendly by the server and she took plenty of time to answer our questions about the menu. We ordered a variety of things including turtle soup, French toast, eggs hussard, etc. The three adults were quite pleased with their. food. The ambiance was quite pleasant. I would recommend this for sure to anyone wanting to experience delicious New Orleans food with excellent service in a lovely atmosphere!

Horrible experience based on the service alone from Christopher. He did not acknowledge us until we sat there for 30 minutes and was not apologetic. Was not friendly the entire night and acted very uppity and snooty towards us. My husband and I both worked in hospitality for 17+ years and know what quality service looks like. We did not receive great service tonight at all from Brennan’s. Very disappointed. Our busser Michael was excellent on the other hand. Hope management promotes him to server because he deserves it. Promotions should be merited on the quality of customer service, not on whether you are in “training” to become a sommelier. Anyone can learn sommelier skills if they have their focus on learning this knowledge. However, mastering the skills of hospitality, knowing what it takes to make people have an excellent experience is a much greater accomplishment In regards to a dining experience. Ordered the bananas fosters. It was ok but not worth the very poor service from our server. Will not be back. This restaurant, based on my personal experience, was not worth my time based on nostalgia alone.

Dinner was superb. They knew it was our anniversary and sent complimentary champagne and a treat from the chef. Their staff is superb. Our waitress Eva added so much to our evening. Brennans is the way it was in the 60’s!! It is a marvelous restaurant.

After coming here for many years, it is heartwarming to feel so welcome and pleased with the dining experience at Brennans. The staff are friendly but still sophisticated and attentive. Service, presentation and food quality remain distinctively excellent. My only regret is to see the loss of any effort by clientele to dress in a manner that honors the class and history of Brennans. This restaurant can not be faulted for having to accept lower dress standards as it must be a condition for survival.

Everything was excellent. The Bloody Bulls were very tasty. There were 4 of us and we all ordered different breakfast. One was as good as the next. John, our waiter was helpful with the menu and had s good personality. We had Bananas Foster as well as the Berry. Crisp for dessert. They were both excellent. A wonderful memory.

Brennan’s lives up to its reputation for sure. Best Bloody Mary in all of New Orleans. Food was excellent start to finish. Presentation was perfection. Just keep in mind this is not a calorie counters dream - very rich ‘stuff’. The flavors of everything was fabulous. Service wonderful!!

Excellent job by our Server, Victoria! She even surprised my wife with a beautiful and complementary dessert afterwards with a little fanfare.

We had at least 3 members of the management staff come up to our table to personally wish my wife a Happy Birthday. This was a very nice and professional touch.

Thank you again!

Best meal we had while visiting New Orleans for a week hand down. The staff was attentive and friendly, the drinks were delicious, and our entrees were excellent. Most importantly, the flambéed desserts are made table side and are a definite must when visiting. If you go for a birthday, they have a fun birthday dessert as well. I cannot recommend Brennan's enough.

I couldn’t wait to get back to Brennan’s(was there last year). I had the best fried chicken I ever tasted last yr but this year it was hard and burnt. The only saving grace was the meat was tender and the waffles were delicious. Of course the banana foster was marvelous as always.
