Had visited Brennan's at Downtown Disney a couple of months ago. Two kids three adults two children. Sat outdoors then. We're inside this time. Piano player added to the ambiance. We had blackened salmon (a hit) fried chicken, which was very good, garlic cheese bread, calamari appetizer. Tables were elbow to elbow a bit tight. Server was very accommodating especially with the kids. Not cheap but enjoyed it nevertheless.

I lived in New Orleans so it was fun to go and eat with friends, would of liked to see Blue Crab Claws sauced in butter and garlic and parsley. I forgot to order the fried green tomatoes which i was really looking forward to eating ! lol

Thanks for all,

Went for our anniversary and the waiter Brandon was wonderful. Not pushy, and attentive to our needs. We planned to get dessert later in the evening in downtown Disney, but he surprised us with the delicious beignets! Thanks for a lovely evening.

Not really a restaurant problem—- but where we were sitting and time of day forced us to leave sunglasses on and shield from sun exposure. Food and service was above excellent!

This was a reservation I made for the son of a co-worker and his date, for dinner before their prom. My ratings are based on his comments. They had a great, great time and the staff treated the kids especially nicely. He has been there previously wit his family. He loves the place.

The food is overpriced and even though it used to be great and totally worth paying such high prices, it has gone down in quality significantly over the last couple years. My wife and I last went here about 3 years ago and every item we got was delicious and we’ll prepared. This time, everything seemed like they were just trying to pump out dishes quick and didn’t really care about providing a quality meal. Nothing was terrible, but nothing was worth anywhere close to the amount they were charging (or even half the price if we’re being honest), so that’s why I can’t justify more than 2 stars. The only thing that was worth it was the bread pudding, but it isn’t near enough to make us want to go back here. I don’t think this is a problem exclusive to Ralph Brennan’s. We’ve noticed that everywhere in Disneyland and Downtown Disney has taken a dive in terms of the food quality and overall service recently. It’s really quite sad. It used to be such a great place.

Very over priced for the quality of food. Be prepared to spend about $30 per person. Venue is very noisy, not the place to be after a noisy day at Disneyland. Food is overly spiced. I get it that this is a creole restaurant, but throwing a lot of spices at so so food does not make it better. We have lived in SoCal for 40 years and have gone to Disneyland/Downtown Disney hundreds of times and this was our first and last time at Ralph Brennan’s. Would not recommend this restaurant.

A fun restaurant to visit to enjoy lively New Orleans style jazz music. The food is typical of a tourist restaurant and on the pricier side. The service is good considering how very busy the restaurant gets. The live music is primarily in one room and not accessible to the customers in the rest of the restaurant. The room gets very busy so reservations are a must. A fun choice for a birthday celebration or night out with friends.

Our beautiful waitress Sarah made our experience top notch! She provided incredible feedback on requested dishes and offered pairings for a perfect meal. She definitely made Mother's Day and a Birthday special.

Thank you

P.S.

The Catfish St.Charles and Boudin balls are the best.

They had told us jazz music would occur @ 6 but nothing appeared then the waitstaff said a duo would be coming @7pm since it was Sunday. But by 8 still no music so very disappointing. Could have gone anywhere for food but wanted the musical ambiance. Won’t be coming back to Disneyland anytime soon.

Years before, Ralph Brennan's was a place of great service and ambience. It still is, but now I feel like I'm a number. I had to call over the waiter a couple more times whereas before they would initiate to check in regularly. I had to ask for a highchair twice. Even the entertainment was feeling sparse. If I'm going to pay this much money I'd rather go to another restaurant within the same Downtown Disney.

It would be nice if there was a quieter section of the restaurant so people can talk. But, I also understand that a lot of people come for the ambiance. My old ears are just starting to get affected by loud noise. Still, the food was phenomenal, and the waitress worked hard to make my daughter's birthday a special one. We will definitely be back.
