Excellent service & great flair in food presentation. The dessert flambeau presentation was fabulous including the story behind the creation of the dessert!

It is great when a venerable restaurant does not rest on past laurels, keeps up with the times, refurbishes, and yet serves the same wonderful cuisine that made them famous. We have been coming to New Orleans for decades, have seen restaurants come and go, and have seen the grand old places become less grand. Our recent breakfast at Brennan's,... More

Brennan's is back at the top of New Orleans restaurants. The food, service, and everything else is amazing. I wish I could go with a spare stomach and a spare liver to fully enjoy the whole menu and wine list. A must-try.

We went to Brennan's for a Sunday brunch. Service was great and the food was absolutely incredible. I had the Eggs Benedict which was fantastic, but the wife had the Croque Madam Royal that I still dream about and may go back to New Orleans just to order. The only negative was we didn't have room for dessert.

Brennans is having a "Champagne Happy Hour" in the summer. Champagne at half price from 2-7 Tuesday to Friday. And, some inexpensive appetizers as well. Unbelievable bargain. If you are in NO this summer during the week stop in for cool Champagne break.

Seared scallops with some ? Sauce were the best I've ever had. Shrimp and grits are the best-creamiest grits. Delicious wines. Fantastic crab pasta- raw oysters nd some baked in a shell; everything we tried was good - and the Bananas foster topped all

Enjoyed my dinner so much at Brennan's went back for a late lunch. The food was fantastic, the service was smooth and wonderful and it was very festive for a hot day in New Orleans. Everyone in the party had a different entree and they all raved about the taste and quality. A Real Winner for New Orleans.

Elegant, Southern-themed decor, excellent service and a marvelous ambiance characterize this restaurant - visiting which, I believe, is something of a New Orleans tradition. We came here for breakfast/ brunch and found the experience outstanding in every respect. The Bananas Foster, which are prepared at your table and which Brennan's claims to have originated, were to die for.

Had our semi-annual girls from high school get together. (We'll be celebrating our 40 yr reunion next year.) Decided to give the "new" Brennan's a try and so glad we did! Although it was 1pm, all eight of us opted for breakfast and it was fantastic! Eggs Sardou, adding crabmeat, was amazing. We split 4 desserts, and then the waiter... More
