    this is my third visit to Brennans, huge fan. But overall displeased with the quality of service this visit. From the receptionist all the way through i did not feel very welcomed this feeling was echoed by significant other. our tour ran late which prevent us time to change into more formal dining, we still looked more then acceptable for a warm welcome. maybe consider dress code, if that’s the expectation

    We waited a long time for waters, then waited for a long time for cocktails and coffee, and waited a long time again to order food. The food was just ok—Not very warm and appeared as if it had sat for a while before being served to us. We wished we had spent our time and money elsewhere.

    Food was aMAZing!!! Bread pudding was the best I’ve had. Happened to be there at the same as several large birthday parties and and an engagement celebration, so it was very loud and hard to hear each other, but thought it was so fun that everyone was recognized & the people with birthdays were sung to by the whole restaurant.

    Menu was disappointing because of the selection was cut back a lot. Baked apple was changed to a green apple and to me had no taste (if it ani't broke don't fix it). The service was top knoch, probably one of the best in the city.

    We came here for my birthday, it’s our first time in NOLA and our friends recommended Brennan’s. The food and drinks were absolutely delicious!! The bananas foster and oysters j’aime was to die for. It was also our first time trying turtle soup. Our server could have checked in on us a little more frequently, I don’t recall him coming by during our entree at all. But otherwise he was excellent!

    Food was excellent- creatively designed and presented. Best steak I’ve had for a long while. A good story and presentation of the Bananas Fosters. Delicious wine for $50 a bottle! Chairs weren’t comfortable ( too upright and no back support) but staff found me a cushion which solved problem.

    It was our anniversary and they made sure to make us feel very special! Every one we encountered said happy anniversary, we had a special appetizer come out from the chef, and a special dessert at the end. The atmosphere was so warm, inviting, and romantic. Will definitely recommend to anyone, especially some celebrating a special occasion!

    It was everything I thought it would be. I eat there 30 years ago and Brennan’s was better today than it was before. So many of the Quarters restaurants have gone down hill that the Quarter is now a bunch of cheap bars and over priced.
