Came here many years ago for breakfast and loved it, so on our last day in N.O. we came again. Had the Eggs Hussarde. Wonderful. Loved the just right crispness of the bread, the sauce was sublime! My husband had the veal cheeks. If you are a foodie, you must get this dish. Melt in your mouth tender. We did... More

I go to New Orleans every year or two. The first time I ever went to Brennan's was Thanksgiving weekend 2006. I loved it then and have made a point of going back for both breakfast and dinner every time I have gone back since. This past week I had training in New Orleans and as soon as I knew... More

Had breakfast/lunch here with 4 others on Friday 2/20. What can I say this was the single most unbelievable meal I have ever had . The bloody Mary's were the best we ever had,the food was indescribable. The staff and the ambiance was remarkable. Not inexpensive(really it was pricey) but if you have one meal to indulge in in new... More

This restaurant was a great experience. The food was delicious--tasted very fresh and with wondeful flavors. The decor was unexpected (a lot of pink the night we were there). Definitely check out the upstairs rooms if you have an event; the decor was equisite and very much what you would imagine "old New Orleans" to be like. We had a... More

This is a serious New Orleans institution. Their $20 million remodel was tastefully and lovingly executed. I've travelled to New Orleans numerous times and have been a little sad that is seemed a bit "depressed" after Hurricane Katrina.In my humble opinion, it's taken ten years for this fabulous city to come back FULL FORCE. With the re-opening of Brennan's as... More

Eggs Benedict and Bananas Foster! I wouldn't even say any more, except that tripadvisor insists. Reopened on Royal Street and just as wonderful as ever.

We had our first meal at Brennan's as a treat for my wife's birthday. It was fantastic, with great really outstanding service (from the front door to the waiter three man team) and the food was wonderful with incredible flavor. We will make this our first stop when we are next in New Orleans.

My wife and I enjoyed a nice Sunday brunch here prior to church at the Cathedral. Service was excellent and on-point and the food was tasty. We both had egg dishes which were expertly prepared and the banana's foster. Everything was great all around, but I did feel like I was paying to enjoy the same experience my family has... More
