We had an amazing lunch there and the staff was wonderful. We love Broussard’s. We ordered a bunch of stuff but our fave was was the chicken and waffles and the shrimp remoulade. The staff also brought my son a dessert with “congratulations” in chocolate ... we were celebrating his graduation.

Broussards is an incredible restaurant that’s currently celebrating 100 years of service in the downtown New Orleans area. That says a lot in itself. We were celebrating a few things the night we went here and they truly made us feel special. From all the flavor and love in the food, to the dutiful servers we had throughout our majestic evening (I feel terrible for not remembering either of their names but they deserve praise!!) A first vacation in several years, an anniversary and that night, a proposal. I asked my partner to be my wife in the beautiful courtyard of the Broussard restaurant and she said yes!! Truly a special night and I’m so happy to have the Broussard staff be a part of one of the most magical nights of my life.

Food and atmosphere were great as usual. Appears that staff levels were slightly reduced but understandably with Covid and mandated headcount limitations. Had a great experience overall.

Everything was great. The food was outstanding. The service was outstanding. I like to ask questions about the dishes and our server took time to explain everything and guide each of us to the perfect dish. The $1.29 cocktail was actually too good as we consumed quite a few. We had bananas foster for dessert as it’s my husbands favorite. The general manager prepared it for us and she was so patient and explained everything she was doing and why and how. It was so good. I thought my son would lick the plate. It was a great evening. I had actually booked a table in the courtyard but it was very muggy. The host offered us a table in the bar by a window overlooking the courtyard. I think it may have been the best table there. It sat away from other tables with a great view and still in the AC.

Although a limited menu, food was excellent. Service was above average even though the place was pretty empty. Only real issue was ordered wrong drink by mistake. Most places would have taken off bill or offered to (honestly our mistake so typically will pay for it anyway) but there was never any mention of it and it stayed on the bill. Disappointing service from that regard as well.

This place is absolutely amazing!! From the food, to the service. I loved it! And the bottomless mimosas were amazing and they kept them filled—it’s almost like they anticipated when we would need another drink. 5/5!!!

Brunch here was recommended by hotel clerk. Appetizer, entree, and cocktails were great. Dessert was disappointing. Mud pie was frozen and not properly unthawed. Literally had to break the fork through it like a block of ice. The replacement of bread pudding was lukewarm and far from the best you can get in New Orleans or elsewhere. Dessert could have been comped given this issue. The restaurant is celebrating its 100th anniversary so customer service should be streamlined in this regard.

We went for the 100 Anniversary special and the food was enjoyable but not great. The service however was excellent. And the tables were spaced far apart with less than 50% capacity. I would return.

Covid dinner, outside in courtyard. It was very nice ambiance outside in the courtyard. They are running a 20$ bottle of wine special which was a great value. The shrimp in our dishes did not seem cooked thoroughly. We also had an issue paying our check, waiting 15 minutes with no one checking on us. Our server disappeared and we had to wave down another server to get our bill paid.
