I was very excited to see the new Brennan's. The gang service was generic. Brennan's had the best turtle soup in the city. Now it has the worst. It tasted like beef in gravy...none of the spice, lemon,tomato or for that matter...turtle. There were about 5 oysters the size of a quarter including the breading on the oyster salad. The... More

My company held a private event at this restaurant. We were in one of the private rooms, and had a fixed menu. The ambience was very nice (although some people said it was too noisy). The service was very, very good, with plates being brought out at exactly the same time for each table. They prepared a special vegetarian dish... More

Just reopened after remodel in November. Great place for breakfast, try the rabbit it was very good. French bread was as good as ever. We had the gumbo and our friends had the turtle soup. Both we would recommend. Try the Bloody Mary it's a good starter. Enjoy the best wait staff around.

I had very fond memories of brunches in the courtyard at the historic Brennan's restaurant, so I was thrilled when they reopened late last year and vowed not to stay away. The renovation of the building was spot on, a delightful elegance space in which to dine. But I wish they had spent a little more time training the wait... More

We had Sunday breakfast in the Bar part of the Restaurant, really , more charm with decor & courtyard views. When we arrived, Bananas Foster was being made table-side, lady was videoing the event. I had Eggs Benedict, my wife had Eggs Sardou. We shared the Brandy Milk Punch & their fresh warm bread & butter. Great way to start... More

Fabulous food which somehow manages to be traditional yet with a fresh feel. Thoughtful service supervised by Jovani. Each item superb in detail, all the way down to the excellent butter dusted with fleur de sel. Just lovely.

Peter is the best waiter ever! Took excellent care of us in every way. Obviously wants to please all customers. Food was generous and delicious, and reasonably priced for such a restaurant.

Have heard so much about this place, decided it give it a shot on my first trip to New Orleans. After taking our drink order, ten minutes later still no drinks, we ask two different servers before we received our drinks. Both ordered the Eggs Benedict, one place was good and the other had only one runny egg and one... More

Tgere are way to many words to describe this establishment but trust me they are all needed. You simply must stop in and try the food, the wine, and the service. Soak up some ole New Orleans style.

After being closed for the better part of a year, Brennan's reopened in mid-November with a new look. Reservations for New Year's Eve were hard to come by, however, I was able to get in. The ambiance was incredible from the maitre'd, the bar and the restaurant. The waiters were extemely attentive to our needs and did not rush us... More
