Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
I absolutely love Dickie Brennan's. The food is amazing, and the service is top notch. It's been about 2 years since my last visit, but it was well worth the wait. It won't take me 2 years to get back next time.

Bad experience, it was bad from the start. When we got to our seats there were two bottles of expensive champagne on our table. The waitres said that I phoned in and asked for them to be placed on table when I arrived. When I proceeded to tell her I did not she said perhaps one of her fellow workers played a joke on her. The overall service was good but it took at least one hour to get our food. I asked a waiter if the chef walked out on them and he said it was not that bad. Looked around and no one we could see in the restaurant was eating. When I got my steak it was terrible. Tasted like pot roast and not a filet.

Ribeye came with a hot sauce on I which was unexpected, I really wanted a plain piece of beef. The baked potato came "loaded" which should have said a little stuff instead. All in all not impressed, had better.
Take time to relax and enjoy yourself
Really hungry. Try the Chateaubriand for two. $85 It’s the best. I think you will love it. We did. The wait staff was just wonderful.

Very nice, great service and good food. Treated us very well for our anniversary. Would be glad to go back.
We wanted steak in New Orleans and this place really satisfied. Unequaled service, exceptional steaks and a very nice atmosphere. We we not disappointed. Would eat here again on our next trip.
Great Steakhouse in the heart of New Orleans
Went here after reading some good reviews and wanting a good steak. We were not disappointed with the food!! The service was a bit hit and miss as we had 4 different servers and I think they got in each others way at times - such as forgetting our menus, and charging us for extra drinks as both waitresses thought we had ordered a drink with them. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience and the steak was amazing. Would recommend it for any occasion.
Steakhouse find in New Orleans
Went to Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse with my Daughter and had a wonderful meal. Appetizers were tasty and our steaks were cooked correctly and were seasoned well. Desserts were wonderful. Bananas Foster Bread Pudding was fantastic as well as the Coconut cake. Service was also first class.
Nice atmosphere, delicious food, great service!
We were seated immediately. Staff was attentive and courteous. Food was delicious from the appetizer to the dessert. Will return for future visits.

Food was great, service spectacular
My wife and I had a wonderful 40th Anniversary dinner last Friday night at Dickie Brennan's. Our servers Rebecca & Alfredo did a fantastic job of assisting us in making our dinner selections and providing excellent service. My rib eye steak prepared Oscar style was FANTASTIC as was my wife's selection of grilled fish and vegetables. We shared a chocolate dessert with coffee. We will definitely consider dining there again.

Celebrated two bday's. There were on time with food, and dessert and drinks. The service was phenomenal as always. Nice servers. Thank you Dickie Brennans. Until next time.

Wonderful, classic atmosphere with attentive, helpful pstaff
Our waitress was nowhere to be seen after the appetizers were presented. A busboy came and tried to limp along the service to complete the meal. We finally took the check to the front in order to pay. (Could have walked out without paying, thats how much attention we had). Our bill was $182 for two people which was fine but would expect better service. When we complained at the front while paying the bill, the had a very "weak, Iam sorry". seemed to not care at all. Would NOT GO BACK
Amazing Spot for a Great Dinner
Everything was perfect, the food was amazing and both my girlfriend and I left feeling more than satisfied. Thank you for an amazing dinner

Service was excellent. However I ordered the ribeye and it came out extremely undercooked and full of fat. The server removed it from our ticket. My wife ordered the house filet and it was very good and cooked perfectly. I informed the hostess that it was my anniversary and they offered to send out a dessert with "Happy Anniversary" on it.... it never showed up. All in all it was an good experience and I would be willing to try it again.

Great service from a team of people who were enjoying their job.
Started with roses from the hostess for Mother's Day to the women in the party. Excellent starter of oysters in McIlhenny chipotle sauce. We had the filet with creamed spinach , potatoes, fried oysters. Each steak was cooked to perfection. Excellent flavor, correct temperature, and very succulent. Sides were the truffle mac cheese and mushrooms. Each one was delicious. We have the crème Brule with vanilla ice cream. Extremely tasty/
Here's the Beef!
Wonderful steaks! Attentive service from the moment you enter the door.
Dickie Brennans, AWESOME as usual
This is our FAVORITE place. The wife LOVES the house filet which is on a bed of cream spinach with fried oysters. Always a special treat.
Great steak. Medium was a little over cooked.
Great overall experience. I wished i would have gotten my filet medium rare. Medium was barely even pink. Still very good steak overall.

Service was mediocre. Server did not know how to correctly carafe the wine and spilt on the table. Steaks were of mediocre quality compared to other well known steak houses across the country. All in all, a small disappointment. Would not return.
Great steak in NOLA!
The food was great, but the service, at times, fell short. We ordered a bottle of wine and the runner delivered the wine and filled our glasses---no offer to "test" the wine. We ordered the chateaubriand for two and it was served on a large platter, and we had to request utensils to get the food from the platter to our plates. We were given tongs, which work great for the steak and grilled veggies, but not so great for au gratin potatoes. A serving spoon would have been a nice touch. Otherwise a great dinner and we look forward to going back.
Great time in New Orleans!
Fantastic meal at Dickie Brennan's! We shared the Chateaubriand and enjoyed that with a vegetable medley, and Lobster tail. Cooked to perfection. Staff was fantastic, and the ambience was very amenable to a good time. Wholeheartedly recommend!

Food was excellent! All perfect except my husbands prime rib was a bit over cooked ( they offered to replace , we said no it was fine) only food item not good was au gratin potatoes, they had no taste. Had to add lots of salt and pepper. My filet was excellent as well as the wedge salad and the salad with greens strawberries and honey vinaigrette. Dessert, sweet potato cake was heavenly!!!
Very Good, not necessarily Excellent
Had dinner , my wife and I split the Chateaubriand for two. Steak was perfectly cooked as ordered, the sides along with the sauces etc were great. I can't say this is the best steak I ever had, but certainly very good. Service was also 'very good', not quite 'excellent'caliber as I have experienced in other higher end steakhouses in Chicago, San Francisco, Las Vegas. For dessert, we shared the Pecan Pie, now that was excellent!
We have been several times and have never been disappointed. The crab cake appetizer, the coconut cake and creole cream cheese cake are favorites. We had Chateaubriand this time which was outstanding and pretty decent price wise since it comes with sides.
Fine steak and eats
Well i was a first timer here. We had our minds made up before we got there. well after hearing hearing her choices, we chose the NY strip top with craw fish tails with potato and vegetable. And crab claws to start. I will say two days later, me and my wife still talked about that steak. Will add them to my list of restaurants to eat at when we are down for a get away. On another note, we made reservations and couples that walk in where told at least 25-30minute wait. The bar next door was full but you could still get drinks as we did.

Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse became our favorite about 10 years ago and has never failed us. Dinner there is a yearly Jazzfest tradition. Food is outstanding and service excellent - what fine dining should be. The wait staff could school several new "hip"restaurants in Chicago.
Steak were good, service just ok
We wanted to try this famous steakhouse just off Bourbon street. The restaurant itself was very elegant. The steaks were good but not the best I've ever had. We were supposed to be waited on by a team of 3 people but were lucky to see one of them every 20 minutes. When we got our martinis, my husband's was half full and mine was about 3/4. Everyone with drinks around us got a full one. The waiter mumbled about not having a full drink and when my husband asked for the rest, the waiter brought another, but charged us for another. The head waiter took it off when we explained the situation. It just wasn't the experience we expected, but I would give it another try.

We had a relaxing dinner in the bar despite having made a reservation on Open Table (it is basketball playoff season after all...) The entire staff was remarkably responsive. The food took longer than I would have liked, but everyone was very attentive and acknowledged the delay . The dinner was exceptionally prepared and delicious and overall great experience during our Jazz Fest visit. Will definitely return.
Great New Orleans Restaurant
When in New Orleans there are so many restaurants to go to. After checking out the steakhouses I am happy to say that we picked a good one. Atmosphere is lovely and the service is spot on. Waiters are very helpful with helping you order and the food was very good. A would return to restaurant for certain.
The best steak in New Orleans!
We were visiting New Orleans and wanted a top end steak as a change from the usual tourist fare. Dickie Brennans was close to our hotel and had good reviews, so we booked. We were seated immediately, and the waiting staff explained the menu options. the food was excellent - one of the best fillet steaks I've had anywhere in the world. The staff were attentive and happy to give recommendations. They took their time with us and were interested in what we'd been doing as we were visiting from the UK. If we're ever in NO again, we'll definitely be visiting!
Never fails to please.
We never fail to go to Dickie Brennan's whenever we visit New Orleans. The food is excellent, and the service is even better. You feel like their most valued customer every time you go. This visit, we were there over my birthday weekend, and I insisted that this where we go for dinner the night of my birthday. Excellent as always!
Dined here this past Saturday night on a Jazz Fest Weekend. Tables hard to find but I was able to get a last minute table at Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse through Open Table. Honestly, availability was my main motivation but initially but I'm really glad they had that table. Service was very attentive from the time we walked in the door. Though I booked at the last minute the the restaurant appeared to be at capacity - our table was ready right away. Service was very attentive and friendly without being pushy. The food was outstanding. We ordered cocktails when we sat down and they were served promptly and were perfectly done. I had gumbo to start and it was excellent (I would expect nothing less in a NOLA restaurant). I had the dry aged New York Strip and it was truly outstanding. The strip had a perfect crust and was cooked perfectly medium rare. The quality was every bit of what I expect from a steak offered at a higher price point. It was absolutely worth it. We were all too full for dessert so I can't comment about the dessert offerings. Constructive criticism : I think the food pricing is really quite reasonable given the ambience and quality - especially compared to some of the other area steakhouses. I did feel like the wine list, thought reasonably extensive, was priced a little higher than it should for many of the bottles I often purchase. Bottom Line: Highly recommend if you are looking for a great steak restaurant in the quarter. I will definitely be back next time I'm in town.
Excellent steaks very well prepared. The cheesecake is awesome and can shared by 2-3 people. Staff is attentive, friendly and helpful.
Not up to par
We have eaten here before but this time the service was extremely slow
Simply the Best!
Just the best. We eat at steakhouses all over the country and Dickie Brennans is our favorite.
