The music selection was odd. We would have much rather had dinner music for example classical music Mozart, Handel or Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr.

The food was splendid! We really enjoyed jazz brunch. The musicians roamed the room playing requests and celebrating with tables of diners. They Chef welcomed us at the front door. Among all our meals in New Orleans of the past 5 days, this was #1.

Always feel so welcome and well attended at Broussards. Many repeat visits lie ahead. Not surprising this establishment has endured since its 1920 founding.

Food was just ok on this new years day. Very limited menu which I was not told when I made the reservations. The food was rather bland and not what one would expect from a gourmet french restaurant. Drinks were outstanding, service was excellent.

I've knocked-off a few starts because the restaurant was not clean; although granted, it was New Year's Day and Sugar Bowl day.

Pretty solid 3-4 stars in most other categories. Menu seems consistent with other Creole Cuisine properties.

I won't rush back there, but I would return for another experience.

Service was subpar but the food was very good. Not great, but very good. It took way too long to be served though, based on the number of servers (we had three at our table) and number of diners in the restaurant. Had to ask multiple times for service for various things from the waitstaff, which is not good for an old line New Orleans restaurant. Based on this experience, I would probably not revisit this restaurant.

From start to finish we spent most of our time waiting. We felt completely unattended to.

Not at ALL what we would have expected from such an old fine dining experience. The food was fantastic but unfortunately not enough to carry such lacking service.

Late being seated, slow service, the food did not live up to expectations. In fact my husband's meal didn't have all the food on the plate from the menu selection. My filet was barely warm.

Worst experience ! Service was awful, food was just ok- will never go back. For a restaurant that has been in business in New Orleans for 101 years they should be ashamed of what went on this Christmas ! Do not go! Ownership better step up if they expect to serve NOLA for much longer ! Understand staffing Christmas night is probably tough … then don’t open ‘

We've been eyeing this restaurant for a while, and finally decided to try it on our trip here for Christmas. So glad we did! They have a super cute courtyard to enjoy drinks in while waiting for your table. Staff was amazing the whole night. The oyster appetizer was delicious, he had the duck breast which was amazing, and I got the pork chop. It was all so good. We will definitely be coming back. I really appreciate ya'll being open on Christmas!

Christmas Day dinner at Broussard’s was fantastic.
We’re over from the UK for the holidays and booked this restaurant as I’d never been here for my previous trips to NOLA.
It doesn’t disappoint!
Cocktails are great and the food was amazing!
I definitely recommend this restaurant.

Christmas dinner - restaurant was cold, waited an hour after reservation time, service was extremely slow, food was luke-warm, Parmesan chips were cold. Sent them back and fresh ones were barely warm. Service was disingenuous at best. The drinks that we had at the bar and the barman were the best thing about the experience. Really disappointed overall seeing as we had traveled to be here. Went to Commander's Palace restaurant a few days before, I recommend anyone go there as opposed to broussard's. The food would be the same price but the service and ambiance are worlds apart
