Following the suggestion of a family member, my husband and I had breakfast at Brennan's while in New Orleans. The ambiance was very pleasant, although slightly more formal then I was expecting for breakfast. The wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly, the food was excellent and the drinks were outstanding. Reservations are a must. The maitre'd was friendly to us,... More

My husband and I had dinner here on our first night in New Orleans. We enjoyed the food and service so much that we returned for breakfast on our last day in the city. Both meals were excellent, and the service was impeccable. All of the servers were incredibly helpful and friendly. I highly recommend the filet of beef Stanley.... More

My family and I have dined at Brennan 's on several occasions throughout the years. Twice before they closed. Once on the Grand reopening, and our last time this Easter. The food and service have always been outstanding! Except on this occasion. The food was great but the staff were not very attentive and simply dropped the ball on this... More

While this restaurant is beautiful itself, we were a little disappointed in the food. We went just before they stop serving breakfast which is at 2pm, We are not big breakfast /lunch eaters so when the waiter arrived we turned down his many suggestions of mimosa's and appetizers and ordered a mushroom omelet for my husband and a tuna salad...

Having spent a lot of time in NOLA over the last 70 years, I was reluctant to visit Brennan's. It was a terrible disappointment every time we went back, and I stopped trying many years ago. I warned many people to stay away. Cousins strongly urged another try this past April during the Quarterfest. Wow!!! I will dine at Brennan's... More

While we don't have children, we had Mother's Day brunch at the recently reopened Brennan's. It was an absolutely delightful surprised as we had heard the restaurant wasn't up to its reputation. It was...and more. Everything from the gumbo appetizer through the dessert was delightful...and the roast lamb loin I had for my main course was superb. Will definitely visit... More

"Have breakfast at Brennan's." That was the mantra I heard before coming to NOLA. On this rainy day, we were warmly greeted by the maitre de and seated inside near the large glass wall that looks into a very southern style courtyard. Still the inside decor is wonderful - kind of a Tennessee Williams version of NYCs Tavern on the... More
