Lavish breakfasts are what first put Brennan's on the map, and they're still a big draw, although fews locals can stomach the current prices. In the luxuriously appointed dining rooms at this gorgeous 1795 building, the best seats include views of the lush courtyard and fountain. Eye-opening cocktails flow freely at breakfast, followed by dishes like poached eggs with hollandaise, creamed spinach, artichoke bottoms, and Canadian bacon; all are listed with suggested wines. Headliners at lunch and dinner include textbook versions of oysters Rockefeller and seafood gumbo, and bananas Foster, which was created here. Chef Lazone Randolph has been creating culinary delights in Brennan's kitchen for more than 45 years.

The food was fine, and our server was great. But I just think if you're going to spend $60 on dinner (no drinks included in that price), you should remeber what you had the next day. I think there are better places to spend your money in New Orleans.

We were so disappointed ! The name is about all that's left of this used to be incredible restaurant. We always headed straight for Brennan's whenever we went back home to New Orleans - you were always treated like royalty - those days are gone. On Friday night if there were 8 tables of people that was a lot. It used to be a special place where everyone got dressed up to go now most of the people there looked like there were ready to go mow their
lawn. The food was edible but no where near the quailty of days gone by and the service left a lot to be desired. BUT - the price was way up there - far too high for the quality. I don't mind spending $250 for a decent meal but not for a piece of fried fish with a scoop of crabmeat on top. The desert was the worst - a lemon pudding filled crepe with cool whip on top ! It seemed funny that the waitress called it a lemon filled crepe with "cool whip" on top - but unfortunately she was serious. We actually saw people get up and leave after one course saying this is bad lets leave. An old New Orleans tradition gone - too bad !
