    Wait staff was not in sync with each other- we were never asked if our meals were prepared as expected. Our drinks took, no exaggeration, 15-20 minutes EACH time we ordered. Our salads and soups were delivered before our drinks. By taking so long, we were only able to order twice during the entire two-hour meal.

    The food was not good. The Bronzed fish had blackening seasoning on it and so thickly that it was barely edible. The butternut and coudcous with herbs had no herbs. It did have whole peppercorns, who wants to bite into that, on top of being utterly tasteless. A tablespoon of butter and some rosemary would have been helpful. The mashed potatoes were supposed to have garlic in them. Not only was there no garlic, there wasn't any salt or butter, so again tasteless! They ran out of shrimp bisque as of our arrival at 7:00pm. When our gracious and great waitress asked us about the food, we let her know, with kindness and tact, that isn't wasn't great. The manager came to our table, let us know how sorry they were and that the sides would be removed from our bill. The bill came and they were still on it. I was so fed up at this point that I just paid the straight bill. If they wanted a tip they could redo the bill as we were told them would.

    Worst thanksgiving dinner ever! The service was beyond slow. They got 1/3 of our dinner orders wrong and we had to send them back. The roasted turkey dinner looked and tasted like low-grade cafeteria food and it had clearly been plated and sitting on the line under a heat lamp for some time. And to add insult to injury they then tried to charge us for things we never got. A truly horrible experience. I will never go back.

    We had our prix fix Thanksgiving dinner there - was awful. My plate was hardly warm, the green beans cold the gravy served on top of the turkey was already congealed and the scoop of mashed potato - white and sweet were barely warm. I'll never eat there again.

    Service was slow on cocktails, too fast on courses, but knowledgeable and friendly. My ham dinner tasted rancid with gluey Mac and cheese and uneatable collard greens. The beet and pomegranate salad was delicious, and they very nicely removed the goat cheese as I asked. Other guests in my party had the turkey dinner and is okay. Pumpkin cake was good.

    We went for Thanksgiving lunch and had the fixed price menu option. The food was good, but the service was lacking! We had to wait a long time for our food and had to remind the server numerous times that we had ordered wine and it hadn't arrived. When our drink order arrived, my husband was served white wine instead of the red wine he had ordered. Our food was only warm when it arrived at our table. The table next to us sent their plates back because their food arrived cold. People around us were served bread, but we never got any. The manager asked us about our experience. When we told her what had happened, she adjusted the bill. She went above and beyond what was required! The poor service might have been due to the holiday staff, so we will probably try Broussard's again. It has an excellent reputation and our experience might have been the exception instead of the norm.

    Looking for a real New Orleans fine dining experience, my NOLA buddy recommended Broussard’s. Last night’s dinner there was fantastic. The staff is welcoming but not intrusive. The menu suited any and all dietary preferences. The food was fresh, local and beautifully presented. The chef is a master of preparation, presentation and creativity. My only recommendation would be to have the recommended wine glasses for red and white wines, not the one-size-suits-all.

    Unfortunately, we were placed in an anteroom off the main dining room even though we made our dinner reservations 3 weeks in advance so not a walk in. The air conditioning was running the entire time which made it quite uncomfortable as well. Staff, with the exception of the trainee server were indifferent and not attentive once we placed our order. Oysters Broussard and Beet Salad were very good as starters. The bronzed red fish was also very good, however, my Pork belly (a very large portion) was literally ice cold to the touch on the second bite. I had to flag down the server trainee and send the dish back; something I have never done in my entire life. I waited over 15 minutes to get a new plate. The Manager did come by while I was waiting and inquired where my food was. When I explained I had to send it back and that it was cold he said oh good well they’re taking care of it and walked off. He did bring the plate back himself and waited until I took a bite. However, I made the mistake of not cutting into the middle of the piece of meat but off to one side and that portion was hot. However, again after several bites towards the middle the meat was ice cold (think freezer). At this point, I ate a ring around the center and left the entire middle portion uneaten. The edible portions were so-so. No one came back and inquired as to how my meal was after they left the second plate of food. Pecan pie was nice and the strawberry ice cream wonderful. After waiting 20 minutes for a check after our table had been cleared, I had to ask for the check. Compared to all the other wonderful dinners we have had in New Orleans this week, Broussard’s was definitely a disappointment.

    I know the dessert was meant to reflect the whole corn based meal but it wasn’t sweet and the ice cream was odd tasting. When I think of dessert I envision something that is sweet that melts in your mouth and is a good finish with a cup of coffee or tea.

    The orange ricotta cake was amazing and the food was good. Although I was looking for a nice quite romantic dinner, that didn’t happen. The room was loud, of course it probably didn’t help when a large group came in and instead of seating down at table they stood around and laughed and talked loudly like they were in a private room, so that was unpleasant. Not the restaurants fault they did try to control the group and asked them to take a seat multiple times.

    We absolutely loved Broussards. The ambience and brunch in the courtyard were amazing. Service was top notch and the jazz trio will forever be remembered as a highlight. The chicken and waffles are simply the best. You need to have the Josephine Benedict as well. Lastly, the deviled eggs along with the bottomless rose made the day that much better! We will return!

    The brunch was delicious, highly recommend you add a side of grits and crawfish tails to whatever you order. The bread pudding was superb, no raisins which was a plus, and they kept the bottomless mimosas flowing. The best part though was the jazz band, the Gumbo Trio, they were lovely and brought so much character to the experience. Request they sing What A Wonderful World, you won’t be disappointed.

    Our female server was excellent but male was grumpy,irritated and clumsy. The hostess asked us to sit and wait for our table she said 3-4 minute. We sat at by the crafty cold door, then after 4 minutes she asked waiter to get our table which is still not free so we were asked to wait 4 more minutes. When I stood up and realised there was a bar out back, I asked if we could go get a drink while we wait, why did the hostess not off this in the first place. Once we had a drinks we were rushed to pay and get to our table and asked if we still wanted the table or the bar. Could have been smoother more hospitable staff, great food and place though.

    Wonderful choice to celebrate our son’s birthday! Absolutely nothing critical to say about our visit - from the moment we walked in, seated and served, staff was so attentive. Food was nothing short of fantastic for the four of us. We had the Redfish, Pork Belly, Pork Chops and the Duck, all topped off with Banana’s Foster. A wonderful filling meal in a beautiful dining room. When and if we ever make it back to New Orleans we are sure to return!! THANK YOU BROUSSARD’S STAFF!

    It feels like something has changed at Broussards, maybe it's new management. And unfortunately the changes are not for the better. The wait for our table was too long and the price for a Sazerac has shot up to $24, a price that is ridiculously high. The food is still very good and the dining room is still beautiful. But add mediocre service to the experience, and Broussards has lost their way. I've always enjoyed eating at Broussards but I probably won't return.
