The entree was just ok. Fish was not very fresh even though the waiter recommended it. Dessert was the highlight. We were seated very close to another table and could hear the entire conversation of those sitting there. Definitely not worth the money.

Not only is this classic New Orleans restaurant beautiful, they serve the most amazing brunch including the best gumbo and bread pudding I've ever tasted. Everyone at our table raved about the food and service.

From the moment our party of 7 walked in, the Hostess, Bartenders and staff treated us like royalty. We were 30 minutes late for our 8:30 seating. The hostess opened the doors Doors to the Magnificent Patio where we drank a cocktail. It was spectacular looking at the waterfalls and gardens. When the group seated at "our table" lingered a...

We had brunch here on my birthday and it was the first time our group had been there since it was redone. It is gorgeous, the food is absolutely delicious and the service was perfect. Bryson, our server, helped me select delicious wines and made great food recommendations. The oysters were amazing and everyone agreed that the bread pudding was... More

I haven't been to Brennan's since it has been under new management, but when we ate there it was fantastic. The food was incredible, the service was impeccable, and the atmosphere was lovely. It is still the standard by which we measure all other meals. We were heartbroken when it closed - but very excited when it opened back up.... More

I have always heard give a new restaurant 1 year to work out the kinks & get everything running smoothly. The food was good but came out too slow. The waiter also forgot to put in our desert. After waiting 30 min we finally asked & he realized he forgot. I will give it a little more time before I... More
