Awesome! Everything was great except for the bananas foster. It was pretty lackluster (but we’re natives and have had some really good BF. I’m sure tourists would love it lol)

From the moment we walked in, the service was incredible. The front door staff was on top of our reservation and seated us immediately. The ambiance provided by the live music was very covid friendly as it utilized string instruments. Steven and James, our servers, were absolutely amazing. They kept our bottomless mimosas full, gave us excellent recommendations of places to visit while we were in town, and overall provided us with an experience to be remembered. We ordered the BBQ Gulf Shrimp and Grits and the Cochon de Lait Benedict. Both dishes were without comparison; we could not get enough of either. Broussard’s is on my short list of places to visit in New Orleans.

My family and I dined at Broussard’s on New Year’s Day. We started with the crab cake and oysters Broussard. Both were exceptional. Most of my party ate the beef and loved it. I had the bronzed redfish which was terrific. The restaurant is classy and the service was fantastic. I highly recommend Broussard’s!

Was disappointed with the very, very limited menu. My husband’s blackened Redfish was delicious. My crab and Brie omelet was OK, very little Brie or sauce. The Creme Brûlée was the best we have ever had. The seafood gumbo was served Luke warm and no wait staff to be found to replace it with a hot serving. Very good job separating tables and mask wearing, we felt very comfortable dining at Broussards

This was horrible- we were there for over an hour & a half, when our food arrived it was cold & the potatoes were uncooked-We had to send it back...I also ordered bottomless mimosas & it took forever to get the 1st one & any refills, also the restaurant said validated parking was available & we still had to pay for parking —- the day we went it was free parking @ meters but we did the validation & had to end up paying at the Royal Sonesta !! We paid over $300 in our bill waiting so long for cold & uncooked food...along with having to pay for free parking... so sad, we use to go all the time when I was younger— so sad!!! A Nola favorite not worth the money or time!

We had the Bronzed Redfish and Pompano Ponchartrain, which were both very tasty and prepared well. They also had a tempting fixe price dinner, but the individual entrees won us over.

Before our meal, we enjoyed the freshly-baked bread with sweet (honey?) butter as well as the Louisiana Blue Crab Cake starter. The crab cake was good, but not as crispy or flavorful as the Maryland counterparts I'm accustomed to.

The cocktails were unique and I particularly recommend the Isadora Duncan, which was fantastic.

We were filled enough from our meals to not need dessert, but another table order a Bananas Foster which was prepared in front of us and looked (and smelled) amazing.

The one restaurant we revisited this trip and we got the same table we had for our honeymoon. Bottomless mimosas are now determine your own ratio! On top of that, I returned for Josephine Benedict and got live music too. Awesome experience! She had sides of Gulf Shrimp and Mascarpone Grits. Thanks, Stephan, for the excellent service!

Appetizer was good. Entrees were delicious.

This represents our experience, your mileage may vary.

With a 5:30 reservation and an 8:00 tour, we thought we had enough time - as had been the case with our other meals during the trip. That was definitely not the case.

One of our desserts took 30 minutes to arrive, was not what was ordered, and, whatever it was, was as hard as a rock - rendering it inedible.

As it was Christmas Day, we expected things to be a bit slower, but were unprepared to not receive things we had ordered - such as a beverage that was brought after a person checked on the progress of our meal. We were assured it was on-the-house for the hour wait, it was definitely on-the-bill.

I'm absolutely sure that should we return, we would have an experience similar to those reviews that made as make a reservation in the first place. Unfortunately, as a traveler with a plethora of choices, we will not be returning and I cannot recommend the restaurant.

My wife and I enjoyed a nice Christmas dinner at Broussard’s while traveling. The food quality and ambiance was superb. The service was surprisingly slow and unresponsive for the caliber of restaurant. We dined at Pelican Club, Irene’s, and Tableau earlier in the week. The service at each was FAR better than Broussard’s.

Since this business had a good reputation, I was very disappointed with the quality of the service. Our table wasn't ready for our reservation time, so we sat in the bar area. It took a long time for a waiter to take our drink order. When we moved to the dining room, we sat for a very long time before our waiter even acknowledge our existence. We were seated next to a large party that kept making lots of loud exchanges. It detracted for our dinner.
We waited a long time between courses and another server, maybe a dining room manager? finally asked if we needed anything. After another several minutes, our waiter assured is that our entrees were maybe 5 minutes away.
The food was wonderful, but the kitchen's timing was deplorable. I understand that these things happen, but a competent waitstaff can mitigate it.
All in all, I was not happy with our Christmas dinner.

Took a long time between courses.

Has the Bananas Foster dessert and they tried twice to make it (they made error in process and had to run back to the kitchen to restart the whole process setup and it was mushy (bananas were smashed) and running. Almost like a soup as ice cream was melted as they didn’t change the ice cream when they had to restart.
Staff were very kind and friendly however.
No music in the back dining room until we were leaving.

Great spot for Christmas Day brunch or anytime! We switched spots after seeing another restaurant young their prices for their Christmas menu and not happy with the options. It turned out for the best going to Broussard’s. Great service and food and charming French Quarter atmosphere with a great view of the courtyard.

Food was mostly tasty. Lobster bisque had huge chunks of lobster which was awesome, but the bisque part left more to be desired. Scallops and desserts were delicious. Service was meh. We had to ask for enough silverware. We also had to ask for bread. No bread plates were given. They never offered to bring us bread, so we had to ask each time.
