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 went to celebrate my birthday & this was our first time here! We arrived about 30 minutes early and sat at the bar and had a cocktail until our table was ready. Drinks & service were spot on! We were seated facing the window with views of the river. We opted to try several small plates: Murder Point oysters, Tuna Crudo, Crab and Tomato Salad, Feta dip and the side of the day, creamed corn. All paired well together with our cocktails and they came out in perfect order. We got a pineapple cloud dessert & chocolate mousse bomb, but it wasn’t too rich. The food was delicious, but the portions are small. (Which we anticipated) Paloa and Jake were our servers and were super attentive and friendly! I think our favorite was the Tomato & Blue Crab salad and our servers helped make the night extra enjoyable!

What a fun date night destination! Drinks were amazing and not too pricy, even though we missed happy hour. We had the smoked trout drip (it was to die for). Cocktails were well balanced and beautifully presented! I can’t wait to bring my family here when they come visit New Orleans!

Cici (please excuse me if the spelling is incorrect) was such a joy. She really made our dining experience 1000× better. It was a pleasant evening altogether.
