Dickie Brennan’s is my go to steak restaurant in NOLA. Being a local I am there on a regular basis. Unfortunately this trip saw a limited menu with food quality poor to say the least.

Some of this could be chalked up to covid and some to the recent hurricane. However, the food was awful. It’s very concerning when the best dish of the night was the baked potato.

I’m hoping they can recover and get back to the high standards and quality that they are known for.

Jeremy was a great, attentive waiter. Ambience was moderate. But only because it was Early on a Tuesday night. I thought I would be spending more, so I was pleasantly surprised when my bill came.
I would definitely return.

First things first, the homely ambiance and feel of the restaurant was great. The service was on point and staff was amazing. Our waitress Chantell was friendly and made us feel like family. The food was well prepared and very flavorful. I'll definitely go soon, the filet was amazing!

Food was not as good as we are used to when dining here. I’m sure the storm has something to do with it. We will try again in a few weeks.

I asked for a medium temperature 11 oz filet. It was not. The waiter, instead of correcting the issue he over talked and was insisting a faint pink middle was a medium temperature filet. I would of thought he would of known better considering we were at Dickie Brendan's. Done.

I came here for my birthday and the service was absolutely outstanding!!! Our server couldn’t do enough for us and made my day really special by bringing out a dessert with a candle in it. Unfortunately the steak I ordered was well done when I asked for medium and it was swimming in sauce which wasn’t very appetizing but overall it was a good experience.

We were at Brennan's for a special occasion and had a wonderful experience! The Chateaubriand and DB wine was scrumptious. Faith, our server, went the extra mile the entire evening to ensure our satisfaction. Would return in a heartbeat💛

Ordered steak medium rare, got very rare. For the supposed best steakhouse in LA one should not have to send a steak back to be cooked further. The waiter was excellent and the ambiance was great. The side dishes were great.

Our server, Adolfo was great - very personable but not hovering. The steaks were superb as were the apps and desert. We brought our own wine and no trouble with the corkage fee. A fine dining experience.

Nice atmosphere in a great location for where we stayed. Corey (our server) was knowledgeable and attentive and delivered us a fine meal. The House Filet entree was delicious - very nice combination of flavors - and the sharable Au Gratin potatoes were sinfully good!

I was expecting more/better. This place is ok, but not as good as some of the other New Orleans restaurants I’ve been to. The food didn’t seem to be seasoned well and my wife asked for a medium-well filet and it came out overly cooked as well done!

Reservations were at 6:45 and we left 2 hours later. The steak was undercooked and it took too long to come out. The wait staff were very apologetic and even comped a dessert. However for the price we didn’t feel that it was worth it.

My husband and I were looking for a really good steak. Dickie's was recommended to us and we went. This was not a place for a great steak. However, it was OK for our palates.
Not a Prime or Ruth Chris steakhouse.

It was clearly our server's first day - or at least I hope it was. We were excited to do the table side martinis - she had NO idea how to make a martini or what the table side service was. She went to talk to someone we could see someone explaining it to her (WHY would you put someone on the floor without them knowing how to make a basic drink) -

The "tableside" was behind us so we couldn't even see what was going on. We felt bad for her so we said everything was fine -but they were horrible drinks. I think someone was standing behind me walking her through it - but she still didn't really know what she was doing - In fact she told us that - that she had never made a martini before....

When telling us what they were out of - she kind of spaced out and said she really didn't know what she was doing...

I ordered white wine - brought me red. The other 2 people ordered a bottle of wine - which she struggled with opening and tore the label off and was literally scraping the bottle. Other diners were watching and encouraging her.

I don't even think we can blame her -whoever manages the front of the house did a poor job training her and certainly wasn't there to help her.

Our meals appeared to be prepared well ahead of our order and warmed in an oven or microwave before serving. The steaks were over-cooked, the wine contained a large amount of sediment (it should have been decanted). Our waiter insisted we relate our observations to the manager, who was apparently too busy to visit our table. After waiting for him nearly 20 minutes, the sommelier appeared. I made it clear that we were not expecting anything to be taken off our bill, and he said he had no intention of doing so, but instructed our waiter to bring us 2 desserts, which was a ridiculous consolation, as we had already ordered and consumed our desserts. This was really disappointing for a Brennan restaurant, as we are lifelong New Orleans residents with a long history of special occasions at their establishments. Jeff Doussan
