Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

We had to wait for a table and half the restaurant was empty. A man walked in the dining room with a hat and flip flops on. Nether of our servers were knowledgable about the menu and let us order a dessert wine because the wine list was absolutely not organized. My steak was cooked medium and I asked for medium rare. It was my boyfriends birthday and they sent out a dessert that we didn't ask for and it was on the bill. This is not and should not be considered a white tablecloth establishment.

This was a first time visit to this local steakhouse and it did not disappoint. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection and was so tender and juicy, you could cut it with your fork. In addition, the potatoes au gratin were excellent. Instead of the usual cheddar cheese, the restaurant used Grouyere cheese in a cheese sauce. The dessert of praline chocolate mousse was good, but not an outstanding choice.
I would recommend this restaurant, as the Brennan imprint of service and quality is evident.

This was our first visit to Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse and it was wonderful! We went for the "Coolinary" menu, but my father-in-law ordered something different. We all loved our meals and desserts! I can't wait to go back.

Overall, we had a nice dining experience. We enjoyed a three course meal and our steaks were delicious. The only issue we had with this restaurant was the lack of attention/wait service from the "head sever" (which believe whose name was Troy). At the beginning of our meal, he introduced himself as our "head sever" but the team wait staff was more attentive to us than he was and he provided more attention to the other surrounding tables. We also asked him for some local jazz club recommendations and he never came back to provide any details. We also noted that there was a manager on the floor who went to several other tables to see how their service was going and she never acknowledge us. So, from a service standpoint we were dissatisfied with the lack of attention and expected more, especially since we chose this restaurant for a special birthday celebration.

We eat at Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse often and have never been disappointed. The steaks are excellent and always prepared perfectly. The crab cakes are the best in the city and the coconut cake dessert is worth the trip on its own.

Went specifically to have prime rib. Asked how it was since I quit going there after several failed attempts. The kitchen must cook the roast to rare and then I was told that the slices were put on a flat top to finish. This ruins the concept of traditional prime rib roast. I ordered medium rare and ended up with a nearly raw piece of meat. Guess I will have to continue to drive to Fleming's in Baton Rouge for true prime rib.

This place was outstanding. The wait staff were very attentive and friendly. The meal was absolutely outstanding. The steak melted in your mouth and the sides were absolutely fabulous. Couldn't have enjoyed it more. The place was beautiful.

I must say this was the worst dining experience I've ever had at Dickie Brennan's. It is usually a 5 star experience, but this time it was not good at all.
Thankfully the salad was good, but the entree and sides were not very good at all.

We had a very good dining experience. The staff was attentive and friendly. The steaks were right on. I order a medium rare Pittsburgh style, and they nailed it! This restaurant is great for entertaining business clients or for a special night out with family or good friends. It is not cheap, so if you do it right be prepared to pay to play. I will continue to keep coming back.

My wife and I made reservations for the two of us. We were seated in an area with several large parties. I noticed other parties of two were seated away from the large parties in the booths. Our wait team changed three times. It took an extra long time for our drink order to be taken as well as our food order. We've eaten at several Brennan restaurants and have never had an experience this disappointing. As far as the food, our bread was cold and the steaks were bland. Very disappointed.

We had a fantastic meal. We were celebrating our anniversary.
The crab cake is simple - a pile of lump crabmeat barely head together then heated through on a skillet. Not much cake, mostly just crab. If you like crabmeat, it's amazing. It's real picked crabmeat, so don't be shocked by a few pieces of shell.
We split a wedge salad. It's nice that they'll split it for you. It's a rich salad with blue cheese, bacon and some other small tasty nuggets. I don't mind sharing a plate with my wife, but this way we didn't have to fight over the bacon :). A whole salad for each would've been too much food.
For entrees, I got the porterhouse with Hollandaise, my wife got the house filet which comes with spinach, oysters and potatoes in a combination. Both cuts of meat were impressive and cooked perfectly. We added a side of asparagus, which wasn't needed. They were delicious, but it was too much food. We took home half of the entrees.
Cocktails - I had an old fashioned before and after dinner. The first one was a little sweet to my taste, but certainly within range of the drink. The second was exactly to my liking, as was the third. They use Luxardo cherries (I assume-if not, I need to find out what they were) which are worlds better than standard candy-red maraschinos. My wife had a specialty cocktail that had ginger, rum and berries. Light and refreshing without being overly sweet or watery.
We had wine with the steaks - each by the glass. Mine was a red (Jacob something?) that was very rich and dry. Perfect with the big cut of meat. She had a white that I don't remember, but was very nice as well.
We skipped dessert because of how full we were. It was a great meal overall. Service is very friendly and relaxed. They were attentive without always being in our face, which was what we wanted for this occasion.

The food was very good - the service was also very good -
BUT it felt like an assembly line - there was no southern charm -
it was more like let me serve you very proper and you can leave.
Please do not misunderstand - no one was rude, but that joie de vivre was not there.

Wife and I ate dinner here on 7/24/16, it was our 5th anniversary. EVERYTHING about our experience was outstanding! My prime rib and her filet were both excellent, cooked to perfection. We had three sides - pontalba potatoes, onion rings, and truffle mac and cheese - all to die for. And we had three (!!!) desserts. The banana foster bread pudding was an "A", and the chocolate cake and coconut cake were both A+. I don't like coconut and I couldn't get enough of that cake!
We eat out quite a bit, plenty of times at steakhouses like Ruth's Chris, Morton's, Sullivan's, and Shula's. Dickie Brennan's was as good as the *best* experiences we've had at those places. Highly recommended!

One of the best steaks I've ever had. The service was wonderful, and did I say that the steak was incredible?
I ordered the 16oz USDA Prime Strip, medium. It came out the most perfect definition of medium that one could hope for, and the creole spices put it over the top.

Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse has always been one of our favorite restaurants in New Orleans. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is elegant. The service is impeccable. We keep going back after years of trying different places. You can not go wrong with any of Brennan's restaurants!

We were extremely impressed with the staff at Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse. They were all very personable, attentive and knowledgeable. The steak and potatoes were wonderful and the dessert to die for. The ambiance of the restaurant is awesome. We will definitely come back!

We have been coming to Dickie Brennan's now for about 16 years---it is our "go to" steakhouse. the service is top notch and the food is not only delicious but consistent. Their steaks are superior and the staff is knowledgeable and helpful. They are never hovering but are always making sure that your water glass is never empty that there are never "too many crumbs" on the table and seem to "appear" at just the right moment when you need something! We took a couple to the restaurant on our last visit who had never been there before. We feel confident that they were also impressed with the Restaurant and would return on their own accord! Dickies is annually our anniversary celebration spot and we look forward to many more years to come!

The round booths are nice and better for conversation. The noise level can get loud but overall the atmosphere is very nice. The men who come table to table and sing are delightful!! The food is very good and the wine list is extraordinary! We went for my birthday with friends and had a wonderful evening. We spent the entire evening there starting with cocktails through dessert. It is a great place for a summer night in NOLA. We live in NOLA so it takes a lot to impress.

We eat here often. This was the third time we ordered the chateaubriand, which is indeed a good value for the money. The first time it was perfect, the second time a little less so, but this time the meat was overdone, but not enough to send it back.
The Steakhouse has become very uneven in its food quality and preparation. Feels like no one is in charge of these or exercising quality control. In a steakhouse, the meat should always be perfectly cooked every time.

We had heard from several friends that Dickie Brennan's was not as good as it used to be. We totally disregarded the comments because we have always loved everything about this restaurant! Saturday night was a disappointment. My straight up Martina was warm. It seemed as though it was not shaken with ice and the glass was not even cold. When my turtle soup was brought, no one offered sherry. My rib eye was fatty but what I did eat was good. Three out of three baked potatoes at the table were cold (the butter wouldn't even melt). When asked about dessert, the waiter told us what he liked and didn't like. When we asked if cheese cake was available the waiter then provided us with the dessert menu. I am really sad! On a good note, our drink waiter was so personable!
