Great food, wine and service.

Started with turtle soup, then duck and finally praline bread pudding. The food portions are a good size. Had a great time and staff are friendly. The restaurant space is classic up market.

I visited here for brunch after many recommendations that this was a can't miss experience in NoLA. The opening line from our server was that this was the best brunch in the world, bold statement but if they are that confidant it must be good right? I had the set menu not sure if that was my mistake but each... More

My son and i love food and good service. Chris our server was fantastic. The food was sublime. I had the Steak Dianne. And my son had the Ravilolo. Both done to perfection. Chris's knowledge of wine was appreciated. Every course down to the bread was fantastic. The night was the best night in The Big Easy. Looking forward to... More

My wife and I went on our anniversary she begged to go to Brennan's for Brunch. It was both the best and most expensive breakfast I have ever had. We were severely under dressed but there was no dress code, the service, food and atmosphere were superb, my wife still talks about it just remember $$$$$.

In celebration of our 42nd anniversary my wife and I recently had dinner at Brennan's, where we had dined during our honeymoon. Our experience there was the highlight of our weekend celebration! All of the staff, especially Paul, Chris, and Michael, made our experience one we will remember for years to come. They were attentive to every detail and treated... More

During my last trip to New Orleans Brennans had closed its doors but am happy they have now reopened ad are better than ever. Just went to breakfast and it appears that the menu items are mostly the same with a few new additions. All new décor which is absolutely beautiful. Great view of the courtyard if you decide to...

The best meal I've had in my 12+ visits to this fine city. Pricey? You bet! Worth it? Best money you'll spend.

I was told by a friend who attended Tulane many years ago, that breakfast at Brennan's is a must on your first trip to New Orleans. It did not disappoint. Like most of my experiences in New Orleans, the service was impeccable. The staff was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The food was both unique and delicious! I had the corned... More

This place is legendary for their breakfast, so we had to try it. Now, we aren't a family that does a lot of sauces (like Hollandaise) with our eggs, so picking something from the menu was a bit of a challenge. They did have an excellent french toast with blueberries, and I had a great egg dish over some kind... More
