Not disappointed! The restaurant is beautiful and the service is polished but friendly.Sat in the magnificent room overlooking the garden courtyard- doesn't get more beautiful than that. Loved the server's pink bow ties and efficiency. Started with Turtle Soup, had to, and the soup was tasty but I couldn't get past the fact that the meat was...turtle🐢 Especially when you... More

Though our meals were good (veal medallions and corned beef crepinette), the service left a lot to be desired. We were seated a half hour before getting coffee served and we both ordered the juice of the day and there was only one glass left at 9:30 a.m. (the place opens at 9:00!). Not like the Brennan's from 15 years... More

Treat yourself! I don't... More

The Brennan's name at one time signalled excellence in food, service and experience. The allure is gone - but the food is still strong, with weaker service, and lack of attention to detail. the management is concerned and when advised, they acknowledged the challenge. Go for a good meal and time - but do not expect the 5 star experience.... More

One of the top restaurants in New Orleans for years. Quite fancy but without a dress code. Reservations are recommended. Food and service outstanding. Serves breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner. Known for seafood file soup, eggs sardou, and eggs hussars. Oatmeal pecan raisin crumble baked apple was also very good. Service team was very attentive and made sure you enjoyed... More

Based upon the numerous very good five star TA reviews and opinions on many other sites and publications, we visited Brennans for breakfast last week. It is a pleasant dining establishment and we were seated promptly by staff. Our waiter was friendly and advised of their drink special which my wife took advantage of. I ordered coffee and was served... More

Great service. Excellent food. I went with my mother and two elementary-aged daughters and we had the best time.

This is our third Brennan's experience in 40 years. The staff surprises us by wonderful care and helped us sort through the menu. Food is just the best. Go some other time than Mardi Gras and the weeks before.

We went to Brennan's for our Anniversary Dinner. From the moment we checked in the staff treated us amazingly. Everyone that we came in contact with wished us a Happy Anniversary and we were pleasantly surprised by complimentary champagne to toast our Anniversary. The food was delicious. Portions were on the smaller end but that is to be expected at... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
