    Disappointed they didn’t have a filet on the menu. Only a ribeye and the rabbit that was ordered was over cooked and dry. The atmosphere was pleasant. The wait staff was impeccable. The vegetable with the rabbit was broccoli and it was barely a single cluster of it.

    It took so much work to get a reservation here but we were not blown away by any aspect of the meal. Even the bread and butter didn't taste fresh or properly salted. The service is a hard thing to criticize these days with the shortages but we did expect friendlier more attentive care in a restaurant of Brennan's reputation. I had the smoked scallops which tasted bland. My partner had the rabbit which was lovely but again wasn't something that gripped us and we had arrived to the restaurant starving! It's a beautiful space but I doubt I'd probably go back for dinner.

    We had a wonderful Friday brunch today. It was my first time dining here and will be back! Starting with the turtle soup and shrimp romalaude, with entrees including eggs sardou and eggs hussarde, everything was temperature-correct and perfect to taste. The service was excellent and ambience was bright and energetic. We will be back soon!

    The waiter was a little too pushy on the additional costs such as wine bottles, glasses of wine, additional meat on the meal, etc. Food was good and we appreciate the birthday experience for my husband. So there are some good things but not my favorite New Orleans restaurant

    Service felt rushed. My omelet was nothing special. Manager never came to check on us despite asking everyone else around us how their experience was going. I have been here before and had an entirely better experience. This visit felt "off." My omelet was literally nothing special. Just $20+ eggs. Server forgot my biscuit. So again, just eggs with a couple of tiny shrimp. My partner's dish was delicious but she felt the server was trying to rush our order in. Will probably just go for their cocktails and happy hour.

    Such a beautiful atmosphere and delightful staff. We had their French toast, strawberries and cream, and baked apple to share. The French toast and strawberries and cream were incredible! For our entrees; we had the Eggs Hussard, Eggs Sardou, and the Eggs Benedict. My favorite was the Sardou, however I would gladly eat either of the other two. The Queen’s Lotus drink was also a favorite at the table.

    1). One member of our party had to have his omelet made 3 times as it was not what he had ordered. Thank you for deducting that from our tab 2). These omelets while delicious were by far the smallest omelets we have EVER had at any restaurant 3). Ordered sides of bacon to be cooked well. They were actually overcooked charred and hard. 4). The Father’s Day champagne, cotton candy cake and fabulous bananas foster saved the day. 5). Members of our party were traveling from Phoenix and Washington DC. It was extremely challenging to get a reservation for our desired time at Brennans. Please make the reservation process more diner friendly.

    Disappointing that at a high scale restaurant 3 of the 8 entrees offered were not available. Remaining entrees were small in size and left you still hungry. Offered one roll to split between 4 people. Bananas foster was the highlight. People at table next to us rambunctious and cursing throughout dinner. Again not what I would expect at a high class restaurant.

    Brennan's is one of my favorite restaurants. I am a local and haven't been back in quite some time. From the service to the look and feel of the restaurant our dinner was wonderful. Minus the nervous "Woody Woodpecker" style laugh that a very loud woman had in the booth next to us, I was very pleased. However, I want to talk about the "Shrimp Remoulade." Shaved celery, a couple of olive slices and a puck of shrimp pieces in the center of my plate. At first I thought they had gotten it wrong. I thought "where's the remoulade?" I looked under the celery shavings and noticed a light orange schmear of what appeared to be remoulade. This wasn't even a tablespoon of remoulade. I paid $15.00 for a schmear of remoulade. If you're tryng to cut costs, the remoulade is the about the cheapest thing on the plate. How about you give us a little bit more so that we can actually taste it next time? It was more like sushi than a classic shrimp remoulade. While I don't like new innovations in my timeless New Orleans favorites, I still recommend Brennan's and any other Brennan's family restaurant if you want some authenticity and New Orleans flavor. Just don't order the shrimp remoulade.

    Everything about this restaurant is superb! Brennen's is a "must go" place for us for breakfast every time we visit New Orleans. The eggs are always done to perfection and the tableside Crepes Fitzgerald and Bananas Foster are always great to watch. Our server was Jamie, and she was outstanding. She was always close by to top up water, champagne, etc., with being overbearing.

    Our group of 10 women were there to celebrate my daughter’s bachelorette weekend. We thought the food was excellent but the portions were very small for the price. In addition, the pacing of the meal was off. It took over an hour for entrees to be delivered, and once we ordered dessert we sat waiting for over 20 minutes. The restaurant was not very busy. We all agreed that while Brennan’s may be considered iconic, we have had better brunch experiences at other restaurants.

    The food was bad and the service was worse. Extremely over rated and will never go back or recommend. Would have been better at a chain restaurant than to have that experience. The worst meal in a long time and the service was pitiful. They are more worried about pushing bananas foster than taking care of the guest.

    The food was good. Restaurant was clean. My wife and I are foodies, and went for the experience. The server however detracted a lot from that. Talked down to us like we had no idea what we were doing. When my wife ordered, she was treated like she ordered something terrible and was made to feel like she was dumb (she ordered eggs Benedict with nothing modified). We were treated like we should feel honored that we were even allowed in. The food was good (even the wife’s Benedict) and eating bananas foster in the place it was created was interesting. But I doubt we will be back.

    Service was horrible, really terrible & they didn’t seem busy. We waited 50 mins between our appetizers and our meals. Our waitress forgot about us it seemed like for probably about 30 of those minutes. Came here expecting a top notch experience all around & left with a much more mediocre feeling than we had anticipated. They did comp one of the appetizers due to such a long wait (which we did not ask for nor expect) but it didn’t really help recover the experience. Food when we did receive it was good! Not exceptional but good! Brennan’s just did not live up to our expectations unfortunately.

    Our service attendant was excellent. The burners he used for the bananas foster did not work on the first attempt and he had to switch it out. We were seated right next to a tableware station and during our meal, the wait staff was replenishing the forks, spoons and knives which made our table conversation difficult to hear. I prefer them to do this after dining hours. Choice of vegetarian entrees is limited.
