I had their Eggs Hussarde and they were delicious! They give you two on your plate but I could only finish one. I also had the coffee with chickory. It was very strong but I really enjoyed the flavor. It was not bitter which surprised me. I would definitely recommend Brennan's though they are a bit pricey, their food will... More

An example: After they brought me my wine they had not yet asked the rest if the table for their drink order. We waited a while till they got back... More

Brennan's is across the street from the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, LÁ. It was recently re-modeled and its fare is breakfast and lunch. If you have not had one of their brandy milk punches, you have missed quite a bit. They have the usual and competent wait staff and great food. If your are in New... More

We went for lunch and it was by far our best dining experience in New Orleans! The space is lovely, the food delicious ( I had the table side Steak Diane) and the best Bananas Foster, also table side. Our service was impeccable. Thank you to Brendan and Michael! They excel at hospitality! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

We wanted an early reservation and Brennan's had one so we went in blindly. We were happy with our choice. We had the eggs Cardinal Which was a lobster and shrimp boudin and a spinach, creole mustard hollandaise sauce. We also had the special of 3 duck eggs and black truffles plus some cheesy grits. There was a pear mimosa... More

Extremely disappointing. Mediocre service. Grits, eggs, bacon and biscuits were all cold. Only good thing was the coffee. Expect better from a Brennan's restaurant.

So we go to NOLA often since that is were my husband went to school there. We always stop by Brennan's to have Bread Pudding for a snack in the middle of the day. It is more custard based but the crunchy salty bread in the middle of the pudding is so good! Get a class of Champagne with their... More

Great service, knowledgeable sommelier. Great food combination without exageration.the venison was delicately surrounded by the most thin crusty bacon slices. The desert a ball of white chocolate melts and opens like a flower when the hot chocolate sauce was poured.

Food was so flavorful. Great breakfast cocktails and Espresso. We had the Vanilla French Toast, Eggs Benedict and an Omelette. We received... 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.
