Just didn’t feel special. Building beautiful, gorgeous courtyard but everything dirty. Sat by big beautiful arched windows overlooking the courtyard but the windows were filthy! Table near us spilled glass of water, staff saw it but took no extra napkins nor did they ever return to clean it up. Could have been a wonderful evening but attention to details were lacking!

I remember Broussard’s as a special place. It was not as all as special in the past.Food was just ok. There really isn’t a dress code - short we’re acceptable. Disappointed in the experience.

This was a fantastic brunch. The staff was outstanding and the bottomless mimosas are a fantastic deal. We agreed the burger is the best we’ve had. Cant wait to come back to this spot.

Quiet spot in the middle of French Quarter, half a block from Bourbon. Service was refined and solicitous. Food was heavy on the butter and cracked black pepper and not in a good way. Glad we went for the experience but won't be visiting again.

We loved our table and the overall ambiance of the restaurant. The cocktails were some of the very best we have had in the city!! The general manager greeted us kindly. Everything was very nice, but to be perfectly honest, nothing after the initial cocktails stood out. The two serves we had were ok, but seemed a little preoccupied and did not seem to be working together as others in the quarter do so smoothly; we waited a really long time for our cocktails, much longer than at any other restaurant in NOLA. When asking about the menu, one of our servers really had nothing to say that would help. Again, lovely room, and very nice overall, but did not wow us on our first visit.

not my first time here but this time the food was not up to par. the sauce for the shrimp and grits tasted like it was burnt and cooked too long. but the cornbread dressing and gumbo were amazing. the drinks were the best thing about the experience. hopefully next time the food is better. also two tables were so loud it was hard to enjoy the experience. once they left it was very peaceful!

The worst experience I’ve had in New Orleans. I would not recommend this spot.

The host was rude and lied to my party, the server took 1 hour to bring the bread basket out. We had to continuously ask for the status of what we ordered.

We are locals and come to Broussard’s pretty regularly mainly because we can depend on the service being excellent due to our waitress Lyndsey who was a lot of fun without ever losing her professionalism. The food is great and the dining room is beautiful. We had a great time with our friends who were very impressed with the whole experience.

My fiancé and I love French culture, so when I saw this restaurant come up in my search for an anniversary dinner, I knew it would be perfect. And it was! The service was outstanding, food incredible, ambiance lovely. I had marked our reservation on Opentable as being for an anniversary, and didn’t think much of that, but our waitress surprised us at the end with a dessert plate with “Happy Anniversary” written in chocolate sauce on it! We thoroughly enjoyed our experience here and highly recommend.

The main dining room is beautiful While the serving are rather small I can live with that. The chief could use a lesson in seasoning, some what bland. Not what visitors are looking for in N O. It’s not the mid west after all

Appetizers and entrees were excellent. Bottle of Petit Syrah was just as good. Noisy group eventually left and noise level was then appropriate.

Our waiter was rude and very short with my friends. We were not given a napkin till after our meal. Barely received water refills. We were celebrating a birthday and was not greeted nor given the proper care/service. I’ve never been to a fine dining restaurant where service was that trash. chick fil a gives better customer service than this place. Will not ever come back.

No one was happy with their food. My food was cold and had to be sent back and I got my food when everyone was done eating. The risotto was bland. The lemon bur blanc was so so sour. The jam on the duck was thick. The scallops were small. The gumbo was just ok. Service was just ok but they were short staffed. We were seated after our reservation.
