Amazing dishes, incredible deserts and stunning Location. I had the local dish of Amondi red fish, Russian River Chardonnay from California, their famous banana foster AND the chocolate flourless cake. 5 Stars. 10/10! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

You are in good hands at Brennan's. My friend and I went there for lunch on a Friday. We were given a great seat by the front window. All staff were very polite and helpful. I have a gluten intolerance and asked the waitress which items I could order--she immediately rattled off the numerous choices. I had the Eggs Nouvelle... More

We were invited here by a friend for a traditional New Orleans brunch and it did not disappoint. Started with the best Bloody Mary I have ever tasted, with Cajun spices. I work in the drinks industry and this was superb. Brunch food was great and service was impeccable.

Outstanding for brunch. A New Orleans classic. Get the bananas foster! It is a bit pricey but worth the price. The menu has a nice selection.

Perfect service, perfect atmosphere, and of course, perfect food. We just returned from celebrating our daughter's 30th birthday in Nola last weekend.

Taking a stroll down Royal street, we came across Brennan's and decided to pop in and see if they had a table free. Amazingly enough, they managed to accommodate us and how pleased we were, as we had a superb meal. My husband started with the seafood gumbo and thought it quite delicious, then we both had the filet mignon.... More

We made a reservation for the patio. When we checked in they said there were no tables available - even though we could see quite a few. After our friends talked to them, they seated us on the patio. Service was terrible, the food portions were very small for the money my husband had the shrimp remoulade it was was... More

Exceptional service at the bar and also from our various servers. The Pomegranate Cooler was wonderful on a hot evening and our dinners were excellent. From beginning to end they made us feel special. We'll be back next trip!

I did not grow up in New Orleans, but live here now. My mom was in NOLA for a conference in 1993 and remembered that Brennan's was her favorite meal that trip. So, when she came to visit over Easter we had to go back for dinner that night. The food was excellent (although they were out of a few... More

This was a weekend away after a short week in Baton Rouge. We decided to try Brennan's for breakfast/brunch on a Saturday morning. Reservations are critical. This is white linen, Bloody Marys and Mimosas at their best! The meal and the services was tremendous. The service was attentive but not hovering. The food was outstanding with beautiful presentation. Table side... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
