    Service was so bad and unprofessional food was cold when I came to the table. Staff arguing in front of customers. Putting tables away while still eating dinner that was just served. Not what is used to be better options near by.

    It was an anniversary brunch with just my husband and myself. The food was perfect. We ordered a little of almost everything a la carte and everything was great. They had a fabulous 3 man band that really set a great, happy, celebratory mood not only for us but all of the other patrons. It was so good that we texted our friends who were also celebrating their anniversary and said to change your morning plans and go to Broussard’s for brunch. It won’t disappoint.

    My husband and I had Sunday brunch at Broussard’s about a month prior. We were totally impressed with the Sunday brunch and probably over the years, the best brunch we’ve had in New Orls so thought we’d try dinner at Broussard’s. We did not have the same experience, although our server was excellent, almost everything we ordered had a sweet taste, even the butter was a bit too sweet so we requested regular butter. We will go back for the jazz brunch but probably not the dinner. Overall just a little too French/creole, I guess we prefer more spice/Cajun flavors.

    Food didn’t meet 5 star rating. French fries were cold. The waitress was extremely rude. I especially didn’t like how she was toward my children. My fish was very blan. No taste. I definitely would not go back.

    We really wanted the food to be good. The drinks were just okay. Some tasted like there was no alcohol in them and others were really strong. We ordered chicken strips and fries for the kids in the party. The fries had no taste. I didn't taste the chicken so I can't comment about the taste. I ordered a filet mignon with asparagus and Mashed Potatoes. The asparagus were salty. I could have tolerated that but when I tasted the filet, it tasted like the chef used all of the salt in kitchen to season it. I returned my entire plate of food. My son ordered steak with fries. He said his steak was good, but he couldn't eat the fries because they were so hard. My daughter in law ordered the red fish with creamed spinach. She ate the fish, but couldn't eat the creamed stomach. She thought it was disgusting. My other son had crab shells in his food. My husband had the pork chop. He enjoyed his food. I tasted his pork chop and it was good. Needless to say that I left without having my meal and others left most of their food on the plates. We were very disappointed. The manager did comp some of the meals. I hope they fix these issues because I would rather have eaten my meal than to have it comped.

    We had a group of 9 people and everything was FANTASTIC! My group was celebrating a birthday and we were there for Saturday brunch. I had their pre-fixe menu with a bottomless mimosa. The food was on point (the English Toffee bread pudding was my favorite), but the pain perdu, steak and eggs, chicken & waffles, bananas foster, and the Josephine Benedict all got great reviews from my fellow diners. There was even a jazz band that played for us. The service was also really good - the manager checked on us, the drinks were flowing, and the service team engaged in friendly banter. 8 out of the 9 of us were first timers and we will definitely be back. Thanks for an outstanding time Broussards!

    It was with great anticipation that my wife and I decided to finally eat at the fine establishment that Broussard's has been known for. However, the food was good, but didn't have a WOW factor we hoped as it being one of the classic New Orleans restaurants. First the food.... prix fixed menu was a good choice. The Turtle Soup was more like a bisque and lacked salt, in our opinion. Our main course of the duck, while cooked perfectly, the skin was left fatty and non seared. Which was very disappointing. Rest of the meal was meh. The service was lacking. Wait staff hung around in groups talking loudly and one of the waiters, which brought our wine to the table, opened the bottle and didn't offer a tasting before pouring full glasses. We were also disappointed to see that people were allowed to dine in very casual clothing, even someone was allowed to wear shorts. While it is recommended to try eating there once, to say you have dined there, we will not partake in another experience.

    We had the set menu for dinner. The shrimp starter was tasty and the pork main course with its creole sauce was very good. Not so good was the flavoured butter and the shortage of the less expensive wines. The service was very friendly which cleared us Brits up.

    There locally sourced and use of traditional local variations on dishes made this an extraordinary experience. Even found one of their senior bartenders to recreate a drink for my bride they made 47 years ago called the Broussard's kiss. We could not have had a better experience! Outstanding in every way.

    We love to go to Broussard’s. The elegance of the restaurant is wonderful, the staff are amazing, the food is excellent, and we always have a great time when we’re there. They keep the bottomless mimosa’s flowing, your coffee hot and the steamed cream is a nice touch.

    Broussard’s goes above and beyond for it’s customers. The food is spectacular and the setting is real New Orleans. Our servers were very nice, well informed and created a great dining experience! We all had different dishes for brunch and everyone enjoyed their meal. The Bloody Mary’s and Bottomless Mimosas we’re so nice. They pour Champaign and you add your own orange juice. I wouldn’t miss a meal there!

    Incredible! Even with all of the food options in New Orleans, I still find myself always strolling over to Broussard's in the French Quarter for a classic Bottomless Mimosa brunch to start off my day! On a nice day, this place is crowded but is very peaceful and relaxed during a morning rainstorm. Everything down to the elegance of the white tablecloths, to the incredibly nice and knowledgeable staff, I find myself always loved the experience I have there. Your bottomless mimosas never reach the bottom of your glass because they keep you topped off. The omelet and Croque Madame are my favorites, paired with an extra side of potatoes! Look closely at the pictures on the walls and you might just see some famous classic new Orleans gangsters (Carlos Marcello)!

    Went with my wife for her birthday dinner. We arrived for happy hour in the bar at 5pm. The happy hour drink specials were great and the waitress/bartender was very good. Then about 6pm we moved to the formal dinning room for dinner. Started out petty good but the service deteriorated, they forgot to bring us items and then did not pay attention to us. They have an extensive and expensive wine list but seemed bother when I asked questions about the wines I was choosing from. They did not take care of our needs or requests. The younger waiter seemed to try but became over whelmed as the night got busy. The older waiter just seemed to not care, indifferent, kind of a jerk. I'm a big tipper for good service, but not that night, waiter missed a fifty. Also, a table of six came in and were extremely loud and uncouth, they made it difficult for us to have a conversation and enjoy dinner; hard to make it classy or romantic. It was obvious other tables/patrons were also annoyed by the uncouth table and the slow service. Management did nothing about the loud group/boisterous group.. Not appropriate a-for a classy restaurant. The food was god but unenjoyable because of the atmosphere and service distractions. Spending several hundred on dinner... I WOULD NOT take another chance on any occasion there. Sorry Broussard's, disappointing. We have so many choices.
