We were there at brunch time. We had 3 entrees (schnitzel, pastrami hash, their signature variation on eggs benedict, and the bananas foster. All of them were excellent. Total, with no drinks, was around $65 which is a little high but not too bad. Kind of one of those places you just have to go to.

Brennan's is a special place. Our service was incredible as was the food. The waiter saw my son was upset and brought him some cotton candy to cheer him up. This is definitely one of my favorite spots.

I grew up in the NOLA area and had always heard about how great Brennan's was, but never tried it because I had the perception it was too expensive. Boy, was I wrong. This place is incredible. The service, atmosphere and food are exceptional, and we had an unforgettable experience full of some of the best food I've ever eaten. Kudos to our waitress for answering our questions about the decor in the Rex room - she was superb.

If you're in New Orleans, make sure you visit Brennan's. Not only will you have one of the best meals of your life, but you'll experience a magical piece of NOLA history that has earned its reputation and then some.

Was slightly disappointed that I could only order a cocktail from the lunch menu. Wanted a Corpse Reviver but it wasn’t an option. The French 75 was quite tasty though.

Felt very safe and comfortable. This was my first time to dine in a restaurant since March. Very nice time. The filet was tiny. Prob way to small for most men. I think it was 5 ounces but seemed even smaller. The outside speaker was too loud if it’s next to your table.

When we had gotten to the restaurant and sat down at our table we were greeted by an extremely rude waiter. Said rude waiter also wouldn’t let us pop our champagne that we brought and still tried to make us pay the corkage fee. While the ambiance was pretty nice, the food definitely wasn’t worth the money. All I’m saying is Waffle House would’ve definitely done better.

Please hold prospective guests to your minimum dress code. We saw a few understandable marginal outfits, but one “gentleman” walked through the dining room in a tank top - it was quite distracting.
Also, what happened to the picture in the men’s room of guests watching a TV event in the ‘50s in the courtyard.

My husband and I along with our best friends came to New Orleans for a weekend getaway and Brennan’s was the one restaurant everyone told us we must go to. They said it for a reason. Brennan’s was the best meal and best experience of our trip. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff is top- notch, our waitress was adorable and our meals were phenomenal. No one should go to New Orleans without making this their brunch highlight.

I have to say that I had high expectations. I grew up here and have never been to Brennan’s. The staff was extremely friendly! Even the manager dropped in to find out what was wrong with the appetizer. The drinks were wonderful! The wait staff was good. I expected the food to Wow me and it just didn’t. I would like to hope it is pandemic related.

Service was outstanding, but the food did not live up to the expectation. Perhaps the limited menu played a part, but I was not impressed with the taste. Also be sure to request a room or you could be seated in the highly trafficked exit area.
