    Very disappointing experience. Would never go back. The $14.00 salad had about 6 bites. Then we got the main course which was about the size of an appitizer. My $38.00 scallops consisted of exactly 4. I complained to the manager who said "really, they usually give you 3". He could have cared less. We had to go to MCDONALD'S afterwards because everyone was still hungry. Huge waste of money. Do not waste your time or money at this place.

    We had dinner on a Thursday evening as a larger party for a birthday. The experience was wonderful from start to finish, with excellent service, special attention given for the birthday, and incredible food. We were seated in a corner table, which was great being a big party. Each guest had a different appetizer, entree and drink, so we really sampled a good portion of the menu and all were delicious. We ordered every dessert and the bananas foster is worth all the hype!! Only bummer was the rabbit wasn’t available, but no one was disappointed by what they ate. Highly recommend for a nice dinner out in NOLA.

    What a wonderful day. Our waitress Charlaine was outstanding. Great attention to detail and very personable. A shout out to Ana One of the hostesses… this young lady is going places. She handled herself like a 20 year veteran and my family and I were truly impressed. She will be a success in anything she does. To these young ladies congratulations on a job well done. Because of you all and such a wonderful staff no question that we will return soon. Bon appétit!

    It was better then expected. We are locals and eat out often. I can’t remember having such a delicious Sunday Brunch. The seafood gumbo, turtle soup and eggs Benedict was to die for!! We topped it off with banana fosters and had drinks. All for $130! That wasn’t bad at all!!! I encourage all to go to Brennans! You will be happy you did!! Jill and Chris

    We loved Brennan's! We went just for Bananas Foster, but ended up getting gumbo which was delicious! Our waiter brought us complimentary champagne for our anniversary! The Bananas Foster was delicious and prepared tableside, with a story of how it was invented, really fun! For birthdays they bring this giant cotton candy and an apron out, very fun.

    We sat at our table for 20 min before my husband got up to go tell the hostess that no one had been by our table. After that we had two different gentlemen that assisted us off and on but neither introduced themselves, explained the menu or was attentive to our needs. Took another 10 minutes for drinks to arrive. When someone finally came to take our food order we ordered everything appetizers, main course, dessert. All arrived in a timely manner and was outstanding. The manager made it by every other table in the dining room except ours and no one ever stopped by to say they were sorry for the mixup. The food was great but there are plenty of good places to eat in NOLA without the long wait.

    I found it to be truthfully excellent. We are from out of town and went to Commanders Palace and Arnauds. Neither impressed me much but Brennans was superb in taste and service. John ,our server was probably the best server I have ever had from all around the world. He had an art of describing the dishes , enthusiastic,knowing when and how he could give his personal opinion , pleasant and refined. Honestly he should be a maestro for others on how to do his top notch job . Thanks for the experience.

    This was by far the best birthday dinner I've ever had! I felt so special and so loved by people I have never met before in my life! That's an experience I wouldn't trade for the world! Everything about tonight was absolutely perfect! The food was incredible too! Best steak I've ever had! And of course the beautiful bananas foster and the cotton candy mound were a sweet touch to an amazing evening 🍌💕

    We had such a fantastic time at Brennan’s Thursday night. The service was exceptional- our server was very prompt, made great recommendations for things to try on the menu, and was very accommodating to the dietary restrictions a few people at the table had. The food and atmosphere was outstanding! This was our first trip back to NOLA after recently having our first child and so glad we celebrated at Brennan’s!! We’ll be back! - Halley

    The staff was nice and the place looked classy. I like the little touches they had like the order of a coffee pot for the table. However, the menu seemed pretty boring for a brunch place and overpriced for what you’re getting (quantity and flavor). I was also confused/annoyed about the booking times... It claimed to be full Friday and Saturday with only 2 slots available for Sunday left when I was making reservations online two weeks prior (time slots were 9:15a or 1:30p which were both awkward times but we opted for 9:15a). When we got there and during our brunch, majority of the restaurant remained empty with staff waiting patiently for more seatings.
