Have eaten here several times - steak medallions we covered in pepper seasoning too much this time. But they took back and remade.

I haven’t been there in years, was really looking forward to it. We had Calamari that was ok. The tomato and artichoke soup was really good. I had the salmon that was flavorless, my son had ny steak that was overcooked and my husband and son had the blackened Mac and cheese, which was a little too heavy. Overall not exactly what I was hoping for.

This is my son's favorite restaurant so we come at least once a week when our Disney passes aren't blocked out. We're always seated quickly, food is always delicious, although sometimes lukewarm, and service is always great.

We had a couple different friends recommend we try this restaurant during our Disneyland vacation and it did NOT disappoint! Everyone in our family (including four kids) licked his/her plate clean. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were very generous!

First time we have been disappointed!
We have been coming to this restaurant for the last 15 years.
Menu has changed and food was not up to par as in past times.
Server's are always great and very attentive.

Good food but a little pricey. The server was great but you could tell they were short and he was stressed. Loved that he spent some time congratulating my mom on her retirement and talked to us about the parks. The chocolate bread pudding is always great but this time was different and in a square rather than a soufflé dish with sauces on the side. Not sure if this is because it was lunch and we usually go at dinner. They also didn’t ask al mode (ice cream on top) Still good, but not as good as before.
The Gumbo ya ya and Boudin balls were excellent.
I would recommend it overall and will be back for more, but I have had better experiences.

I made a reservation via OpenTable. But when I called to confirm, my name was not on there. Good thing, the manager was able to find a slot 15mins later than my original reservation. NYE countdown was okay, nothing special.

The menu has changed and the price of gumbo has gone to ridiculous. I used to read reviews and people would state comments about overpricing the food. I did think this last price increase and menu change was out of line. I realize there is no fee to hear live music. However, gumbo soup is way out of line for the size and quantity of soup.

We used to come once a month now probably just on special occasions . Hope you don’t close down ! We do enjoy the uniqueness of the restaurant and the live music but it’s gotten too out of line for some food items.

Management needs to think about having a variation of prices. Medium to high range. Especially
The gumbo soup!

The restaurant has both inside and outside seating. You really don’t have a choice on location unless you want to wait. We had to sit outside on a very cold night. The staff did turn on heat lamps but it was still cold. Food cooled fast.

In a good note... the service was very good. The server was attentive and entertaining. The food was okay but a little expensive. The food was consistent to prior visits. They have changed the menu a little.

The restaurant is a good choice if you are @Disneyland or DTDisney. Security screening is further out near the parking lot.

As with all places in DTD, it can get busy fast. The food was great with the exception of the steak which was bland. It was cooked to the right temperature but was charred on the outside. I would recommend the Shrimp Primavera.

One of the few restaurants left at Downtown Disney. Party of six, sat outside, in December.
Service was good prompt, available, no problems. We ordered every appetizer to share and each had different entrees. I had the shrimp poor boy, which I have had previously here. The shrimp was fine but the bread was seriously stale. Not a little, very stale. I didn't bother to eat it. I was sad.

My favorite place to eat near Disneyland or anywhere. Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen is part of the small group of famous Brennan's restaurants of New Orleans. From what I've heard they closely monitor this restaurant to maintain the quality of food and service. Having been to the original Brennan's N.O. it seems to be working. This restaurant is far more casual due to the diners from the park. Be sure and order the Banana's Foster, prepared table side. The Black & Blue Filet Mignon served topped with Blue cheese is one of my favorites.

We ordered the chefs sandwich of the day (ACuban) it lacked flavor and the meat distribution was not well placed evenly . It was a disappointment. I expected it to be pressed (like a panini)
Just disappointing the food could have been better .

We dined at Brennan's with a party of 7. Our waiter was outstanding and very accommodating to our needs. Drinks and food was amazing. Our group had visited New Orleans in May of this year and the cuisine matched our expectations. The piano player was extremely enjoyable and very entertaining. We would definitely dine here on our next visit to Anaheim.
