    This is the absolute best spot to be in New Orleans for fine dining. The service is impeccable (thank you Shawn and Nick), food incredible (the BBQ lobster!) and the cocktail/wine list is fabulous.

    Housed in a pastel pink building, Brennan’s is a New Orleans icon best known for its invention of the bananas foster, which is prepared table side at the end of your meal. Eggs Benedicts are a must. Read more

    All the brunch is amazing. We have been back three days in a row to try all the different options! Ask for either John or Etien. Etien made me a Po-Boy from scratch at the table, but don't tell anyone

    You can’t go wrong with anything on the breakfast menu, but I bet you’ll love the Eggs Houssard. Make sure to get some bananas foster after your meal!

    My second favorite restaurant in the FQ. The French toast is the best I've ever had in my life! Of course you've got to try the banana foster where it's created.

    The new Brennan's was restored to be exactly as it was the last time I was at Brennan's in the 80's. Great service and best grits I've ever had. My English muffins were too crispy for my knife to cu

    Order the Prix Fixe meal, you'll get the best of everything. Start off with the GUMBO, get the EGGS BAYOU LAFOURCHE, and then finish things off with the BANANAS FOSTER (they were invented here!)

    Chicken Clemenceau is so delicious! Crispy and tender, with fantastic sauce. Best chicken dish that I have tried in New Orleans so far.

    Haunted by the family of Comte Lefleur. He rented the residence in the mid eighteenth century and went mad and murdered his new wife and son and then killed himself. Often seen as a shadow person.

    The Prix Fixe brunch was definitely the way to go, although was so much food, I split the 1st and 3rd course with my boyfriend. The Bloody Mary was the best I have ever tasted!

    Snag a reservation online since it’s hard to get in otherwise. Can be done for dessert only. Bananas foster not to be missed. Dessert AND a show!

    I attended a business function, the chef created a vegan for meal that was one of the nicest meals I have had in a restaurant that does not specialize in vegan options.

    The coffee is some of the thickest I've ever had outside my kitchen. Delightful and pleasantly bitter (this from someone who uses cream and sugar so I don't like really bitter). Drink it and sigh.
