Our last experience here was a complete and utter disaster. However, this time around, it was much better. The service, food, and overall experience was great.

The service is always exceptional. Our waiter was consistently checking on us and made great recommendations. For example, we were disappointed of the cold beignets served for dessert, but convinced us for the Mississippi Mud Pie as an alternative . Also, we wanted to note that the busgirl Candy was very nice and consistently cleared our table for space.

The food was very well cooked, tasty, and seasoned well for our taste. The berry cocktails were great as well. We enjoyed both our rib plate and duck. The strawberry salad tasted fresh and the gumbo was tasty too. Once again, the beignets were cold and undercooked but the waiters mud pie recommendation saved the dessert finale.

Overall we enjoyed our experience and would recommend Brennan’s to people who are looking for a night of elegance with a side of hospitality.

A very nice new experience for my wife and I on our anniversary. We both got steak. I got the dry age ribeye. It was good, albeit a little over-cooked for medium rare (ended up warm pink in the center). The Lemon merengue pie was absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend it. I also got a fig-infused old-fashioned on the recommendation of the waiter and it was so good that I got another one. Good time and good experience. Don’t forget to order actual sides, as the steak is pretty much served ala carte.

We went to Brennan's for my mom's birthday, and they went all out in making sure that she had a great experience. The table we sat at had been decorated with ribbons and balloons, and the chairs were super comfortable. The entire wait staff that took care of us was outstanding. The food was fantastic. Honestly, we could not have asked for a better experience. And mom is still talking about it four days later. Thank you Brennan's for making my mom feel like a queen on her birthday. We hope to be back soon!

My fiancé and I had the pleasure of having the duo, Greg and Marcus as our waiters and both were pleasant. Greg was very informative about the meals that were listed on the menu. Marcus was entertaining and I don’t think that he noticed that he was because he was just the person that assisted with placing our meals on the table but he was talkative which always helps a great visit wherever you go. Thank you guys for your great customer service and we hope to be back again!

Never disappoints. All dishes were prepared expertly. A small request to modify our rice without cheese resulted in one of the best rice dishes I've ever had. Service was impeccable. Couldn't ask for more.

Thoroughly enjoyed our date nite out at Brennan’s. Arrived 45 min early for our reservation planning to have a drink at the bar and watch LSU continue their thrashing of OU in the Peach Bowl. They were able to seat us immediately so we had to miss out on the game but we had a great dinner. The Red Snapper Ponchatrain dinner was fantastic! We finished with the Bananas Foster prepared table side! Great service and great food. Can’t ask for more! Don’t forget to pick up some complimentary pecan pralines on the way out!

I felt like we were in New Orleans again. The decor and service was as good, or even better, than the original. The gumbo was rich and delicious. The flaming dishes gave an air of excitement to our dinner.
This was a wonderful experience.

It’s no secret that Brennan’s is excellent for special occasions. They treat everyone special and set the highest standard for service. Our waiter has worked for the restaurant for “ only” 40 years. All dishes are excellent and many set the standard others aspire to be. Delightful!

Their traditional gin martini (not so traditional because it has an orange twist) is the best martini I have ever had. I ddin't think a gin martini could get any better than one with blue cheese stuffed olives, but this one beats that. The turtle soup at Brennan's is so good. I can nver pass it up. My husband had a cab cake that was all crab. My shrimp, cooked flambe tableside, was excellent and so entertaining to watch cooking. The only wrinkle was that the wait staff was not informed when we were seated and we waited about 10 minutes to first be taken care of. We had gotten there early because we were going to a performance after dinner. We had to rush a little. But once the wait staff found us, everything was good.
