Server was nice enough but seemed like she was having a bad day I assume. Or she was just unhappy. Food is always food drinks where good enough also!

Saturday, SEC Football game day brunch was perfect. Shrimp and grits were unique and delicious. Bottomless spicy bloody Mary’s were icing on the cake!

The food was really good. Flavors were fantastic. Portions sizes were a little small for me. I left feeling... kinda hungry. That may be a Kelley thing though.

They were out of oysters on Saturday night! The food was a bit greasy! The guys liked their burgers! Fried rabbit was smoky? Brioche buns had too much butter on them! Fries not very crispy! Otherwise just ok! H

Great meal. Always enjoy the food at Brown Butter. We started off with the Brussels and the Crab Mac and Cheese which were excellent to share (both could easily feed 4 people). I had the Brunch Burger for my main dish. Absolutely phenomenal and the garlic fries that come on the side were just the icing on top. Consistently good food, great atmosphere and located right near all the action in Mid City New Orleans.

We had a large party including 2 toddlers. It is never easy to serve a large party. Especially when toddlers are involved, we were moving around a lot and making noise. With that said, because we were such a large party we were seated by the bar and not bothering any other patrons. We got our food fairly quick after ordering. At times, our server seemed a little frustrated. We will return because the food was really good. Perhaps next time we will not come with such a large party. If it is a problem to accommodate large parties, the restaurant should say so.

The atmosphere was fine though we had a very loud rave by us while we dined, I know that’s not the norm. I knew I was there for a burger and it was what I expected. My sidekick had the chicken sandwich and it was cooked to perfection. Overall, not a thing wrong with this place and I would go back.

Interesting menu items. Flavorful and beautifully presented. Exceptional value for the serving size. Biscuits and corn bread with the flavored butters and orange marmalade are a must!

It was decent. I feel like it could be really great but is missing that special ingredient. Wine list is trash so don’t go there with that in mind. We had the Nola restaurant week menu plus a few starters. Mac and cheese is amazing (but how hard is that). The Brussels where delicious but everything else was fairly mediocre. Oh well. Try it out for your self.

Me, along with six of my wonderful friends, had brunch on Saturday. A couple of us had the bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary's. we ordered the fried pickles as an appetizer, they were so delicious. Thin, crispy and so good.
Everyone ordered food we were able to try each other's orders, everything was absolutely delicious. would have liked to have seen some lunch items on the menu. Not everyone likes breakfast foods. Lauren, our server, was on point.

Hey Desiree, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us some feedback. Are you referring to our Fried Goat Cheese salad? I’m so sorry that you didn’t enjoy it. It’s been one of our staples since we opened the restaurant, almost 5 years ago. I’d love to get a little more information to see what we could have done better. Please feel free to get in touch any time. Simon Beck Brown Butter (504)390-1577

Perfect location for a date. It not being a big place made for a comfortable atmosphere, and noise wasn’t too bad.

The oyster toast was delicious. The burgers were very good. The quail dish on the coolinary not so much. Didn’t care for that dish at all. Everything else was good.

We went for Coolinary..wife had a version of shrimp and grits and was quite good. I made the mistake of getting quail...I forgot how tiny a quail is. Really, things on the regular menu looked better. We will try again.

We were on our way to the Queen concert on Aug 20, 2019 but running latter than we liked. we told our waitress and the other person who was with her. She immediately took our food orders and got that going while she came and took our drink orders while the food cooked. Everything came out hot and fresh! Everyone left full and happy and we got out in what I would describe as extremely fast. Thanks Simon and staff. We will be back again when we have more time.

Waiting for 15 minutes after being seated and having to draw the attention of wait staff to come to table is not good. It was at off night. Food always good.

I have been to Brown Butter a few times, I have liked it each time I visited. The food is excellent quality, the burgers are especially fantastic. I think the prices may be a bit higher than some restaurants in a similar range BUT they are consistent, the staff is nice, the restaurant is clean and the food is delicious. I definitely recommend Brown Butter to anyone looking for a place to eat in Mid-City.

There was a table of young women directly behind us who were celebrating something and were very boisterous and disruptive. They needed to be in a separate area!
Other than that it was great.

Seems to have dropped off in recent months, been hit-or-miss last few lunchtime trips. The 'crispy' fried oysters on my sandwich were cold and soggy w/ 3 tiny orphan shards of lettuce- still tasted good. But pretty weak for $15. Not a complete loss... the wings were great, brussels as well. Will definitely be back.
