Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner there. The service was outstanding and they made sure our night was a special one. Elise and the rest of the service team did a wonderful job. The steaks were expectedly delicious, but the Shrimp and Grits appetizer was absolutely amazing!

Food was fantastic, the staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Just a little stuffy and odd. The staff hovers around you while you eat, which is nice when you need something, but awkward when you don't. All the bus boys and waiters line up and stare at the dining room when they wait for things to do. Just awkward. Great food though.

My husband and I had reservations here for over a month to celebrate my birthday while we were in New Orleans. We were seated next to a table of four. They party was VERY loud and they were cursing. Their behavior was very inappropriate. We asked if we could be seated elsewhere, but we were told no because my husband was wearing shorts. It was 90 degrees in NOLA that day and he was wearing dress shorts and a long sleeve, designer, button down shirt with leather dress loafers. I had on a dress and heels. The party that was loud and cursing were wearing jeans and football jerseys. Absolutely ridiculous. Do not waste you time on this tourist trap. There are too many nice places in NOLA.

Went with my wife as a nice place to go for "Great Steak" whilst in New Orleans

We were seeking a great dinner for a Saturday night and this fit the bill after viewing menus as we walked around the French Quarter. My prime rib was fantastic, service was great and so was our shared side dish and dessert.

There are many places to dine in NOLA, but if you're looking for that classic local steak house, Dickie's is the place. Our meal was wonderful from start to finish. The quality and preparation were wonderful.
We started with the seared crab cake. Calling it a crab cake is a misnomer - this is much more crab than cake, it's delicately held together by the slightest hint of flower and surrounded with a delicious white ravigote.
Our entrees were cooked to perfection. Both large filets topped with Bearnaise sauce. Absolutely amazing. For a side we went with the famous Au Gratin Potatoes - best I've ever tasted.
We finished our dining experience with the Sorbet du Jour - another home run by the chef and his staff.
The only part of the experience we didn't enjoy was our captain (or head waiter - not sure what they call them at Dickie Brennan's). Our waiter was wonderful - took our drink orders immediately upon seating, made sure we were served our bread promptly and checked on us frequently.
Our captain waited upon two larger tables seated after us and even then took his time coming over to us. In case you're wondering - we were dressed appropriately (jacket for me, dress for my wife) unlike the other diners (jeans and shorts). It seemed to us that the captain was following the money from larger tables.
So my advice? Go to Dickie Brennan's, but make sure it's more than a table for two.

This is and has always been my wife's favorite restaurant in New Orleans. We celebrated her 67th birthday, my 69th birthday and our 47th anniversary Oct 4, Oct 9 & Oct 11. The had our table ready and the service was wonderful. Thanks for a great night.

My wife and I visited Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse for a night out while we were in New Orleans. The staff was very friendly and gracious to us and our two children. The food was phenomenal and perfect in every way. I ordered the strip and my wife had the petite filet. Both were perfectly cooked and the sides were just as delicious. We had dessert with our meal and it is was delicious. I could not have asked for a better night or a better place to have a night out with my family.

Not up to par - We visit NOLA often and Brennan's steakhouse is always on the list. This time it fell short, we were seated in a small room (usually in the dining hall) the room was warm and crowded to the point of the wait staff bumping into the table whenever they passed through. The head waiter was busy, and i felt rushed to give him our order. My filet which was supposed to be medium well; was well done plus, flavorless and dry, we didn't get one of our sides, but they removed it from the bill. I wanted to try the cobbler for dessert, apparently they stopped making it some time ago, but haven't reprinted the menus. Sad. For the prices that steakhouses charge we will likely try a different steakhouse next time we're in NOLA.

Food, service & atmosphere is always awesome at DB!! Filet and ribeye repeat cuz they are that good. Coconut cake is to die for..yummo!! This visit was less than stellar only due to obnoxious patrons. Three overtly loud & crude guys made this probably one of the worst dining experiences ever lol. Can't do much when a pretentious guy demands the room's attention but make the most of it. Hopefully not repeat customers as they need a private dining room. Exceptional service and food though so it's a must when in New Orleans! Will definitely return as one bad experience is not a deal breaker.
Really bad experience. Indifferent wait ...
Really bad experience. Indifferent waiter. Manager fixed the problem with the food by bringing me a different entree. Ordered the strip medium. Came out very rare. Sent it back. Came back tough as nails and still very rare in the middle. Table next to me had the same issue. My friend had ordered the prime rib. It looked good so I said to just bring me that. My friend completely finished his before I received mine. Manager did check in on us once but absolutely no offer to comp anything or even throw out a sincere apology. Just kind of, oh well! To top it off our bill was split 50/50. My receipt came back correct but the waiter had charged somebody else's complete bill to my friends credit card. Again, kind of an oh well attitude.
Choosing this place was a mistake I won't make again. Horrible experience.
Celebrating our last evening on vacation ...
Celebrating our last evening on vacation, and the food was terrible. Filet was fatty and seriously undercooked. Didn't bring out our sides and brought appetizers after the salads were delivered. Served main course within five minutes of finally bringing the apps. It was as if they were trying to turn over the table quickly. Didn't bring our wine until well after the main course was served. Overall, we wouldn't return. Many other better restaurants to visit in New Orleans.

I brought my son who was visiting me in New Orleans after finishing his musical tour of the South. We were so happy we could take advantage of the Restaurant Week/Coolinary Menu at Dickie Brennan's and it did not disappoint! Carlos and Alfredo were most courteous and friendly to us both. Thank you so much!

Our service was amazing! Jasmine, Tyler and the rest of the team were very attentive and warm. This is fine dining and should be treated as such. Be prepared to be pampered and give yourself enough time to enjoy and savor the food and experience. I would recommend this to family and friends and would go back myself.
