The food and services were the best we have had in a long time. The steak just simply melted in your mouth! The team that waited on us were very informative, extremely nice and aimed to please. The atmosphere was divine! We were celebrating our 37th wedding Anniversay which made all the above that much more special! Thanks again for such a pleasurable experience and it will always be the top of our list of places we will always return to when we visit New Orleans again

My wife and I took a client here for dinner during a recent conference and it was an excellent choice. A perfect mix of New Orleans flare and upscale dining. From the Shrimp & Grits appetizer, the entrees, and all the way through to the coconut cake, everything was delicious. Thanks for helping me make an impression!

When visiting New Orleans with my wife and teenage grandson, we were looking for a place in the French quarter that offered get beef as well as authentic Cajun cuisine since with even 3 people we had 3 ideas of what we wanted for supper! Dickie Brennan's was perfect. Not only was the food over the top great but the entire wait staff could not have been better. Rarely if ever have I had better service, better food or a better environment. Well done!!!!!

Steak was overcooked but still had an excellent flavor. Baked potato was huge and tasty. The best part of the meal was the dessert which was fantastic. Overall a good experience but I prefer other steak houses in this price range.

Greg (team Tyler) was a lovely young man, friendly, outgoing, and "johnny-on-the-spot" making sure our glasses were always filled and we had everything we needed. Heather (team Tyler) was friendly and outgoing and offered to take our picture with the singers. Tyler was friendly but seemed a bit distracted at times, so his service was probably not as efficient as usual. The ladies at the front desk were friendly, courteous and efficient. The bar staff were friendly and caring.

This is the best steak I ever had. I had the petit filet; my husband had the large filet. We requested 2 different doneness levels, and the steaks were brought out still hot and doneness levels perfect. He had the au gratin potatoes,which he raved about. I had the truffle mac and cheese,which I raved about. The side dishes are enough for two people to share, which the waitress did tell us. This was for a special occasion, and as I had told them about it when I made the reservation, everyone from the hostess to the servers told my husband happy birthday. They also wrote it on his desert plate. Everything was first class.

We were there for our 10 year anniversary. The rice in the gumbo was not cooked and was hard. We informed the waitress. The solution presented to us was to have the gumbo without rice. That is not what I consider to be gumbo. It is broth. We didn't eat either bowl due to the fact that there was no rice and by that point the appetite for gumbo was gone. We were still charged for the subpar gumbo. My wife asked that I just pay for it so we could continue the night. The steaks were great. For the price we paid I expected better gumbo with rice. I feel like they should have waived it but oh well. I was just irritated. Ten year anniversary and you have to send food back. Then given gumbo with no rice because it would have taken to long to make make more rice. Everything else was good. It is easier to voice my bad experience.

My hubby and I had dinner here before seeing Wicked at the Saenger. We were celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary and this restaurant did not disappoint! The food was excellent. We had the foie gras and turtle soup for apps and the ribeye and prime rib for entrees. Everything was very tasty. The manager stopped at our table to chat and learned it was our anniversary and sent out a dessert for us. We really enjoyed this meal and will be back!
Excellent example of an American Steak House
Good wine list, very cold Hendrick's martinis, wonderful prime aged steaks with all of the accompaniments you want or need. Ask for Isaiah to be your server. You will be happy
New Orleans Favorite
This is our favorite special dinner spot in New Orleans. Great Steak, Seafood, and service.
Fantastic steaks and oysters. Don't skip dessert. The pecan crunch is a perfect ending to a wonderful meal. The service was impeccable!
We had a great time - the wait staff were awesome and the food was wonderful! I will be coming back next time I'm in NOLA!!!
Had the house filet and turtle soup. Great on both accounts. Service was superb.
We were warned - We should have listened.
Let me break our experience into some enumerated points: 1. Our waiter disappeared for 45 minutes. Literally disappeared with no explanation when he reappeared outside of, “Things happen." 2. The remainder of our waitstaff (3 people total) was no help. We had to ask other waiters for water and cocktails. 3. They brought turtle soup with no spoon or sherry. 4. I had to walk around the restaurant in an attempt to get our check. 5. Once we received our check (from someone other than our 3-person wait staff), it took another 30 minutes to get it paid. 6. We ordered dessert and it never came. We had to ask the kid who took drink orders to cancel it after a half hour. 7. If you’re doing the math, we were at this dinner close to 3 hours with roughly 1 hour of drinking/eating. The rest of the time was spent WAITING. Waiting for things like our waiter, Roy, or our check, or our silverware or our dessert - you get the picture. 8. We found the manager on the way out and conveyed the problematic issues with our dining experience. I’m not looking for apologies or free food, I am looking for a reasonable dining experience with decent service. This place failed. Hard F+. Spend your $150 on dinner at literally any other place. It’s not the money, that is a reasonable date night. I just found that we would have had more fun and probably would have spent more elsewhere.

Not happy with the hostess. We live on the Northshore of New Orleans and frequently go to New Orleans for the weekend. Dickie Brennan's is one of our usual spots. We always dress appropriately....we feel that Saturday nights in the quarter require jackets for men, dresses for women. The hostess seats us at the worst table in the restaurant....the one right next to the kitchen with doors banging open. My wife requests a booth...which they have plenty open. Amazing that they seat people dressed in shorts and backwards-wearing ball caps for Saturday dinner. Not impressed at all by a Brennan family restaurant. This once frequented spot is now off of our list....not because of th food, only by he way we were treated. Unfortunate.
Dickie Brennan's is our absolute favorite in NOLA
We Frequent Dickie Brennan's and always have an excellent dining experience. My wife and I absolutely love the wine (really nice Malbec) and bourbon selections specifically. We almost always get some variation of the "House Style" steak. It's hard to beat all the trimmings you get with this selection. My wife and I enjoyed the House Fillet and the Dickie Brennan Sr.'s NY Strip "House Style" respectively. They were both cooked perfectly and everything had an amazing taste. Brett was our waiter and he was fabulous. Javanda was not one our servers, but she always stops by to say hello and check on us. The floor manager and Ms. Rebecca also stopped by to say hello and check on us. We know that even with us being frequent guests with 5 or 6 visits a year, we make up a very small portion of Dickie Brennan's business. The attention to detail and personal service really makes us feel welcome and makes our experience such a pleasure every time. We finished our meal off with the Triple Chocolate Cake and it was divine. Thanks again everyone (Javanda)!
Food is great
Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse does have the best steaks around. This is the place that we always go when in the New Orleans area and want a steak. It is fairly expensive, but is worth the cost with the quality of meat that you get. The service was good but not great as it usually is. The food was hot on its arrival, but just the little things, like drink refills were a little slow.

Great dinning experience. The whole staff was amazing and our waiter Brett took extra great care of us. From cocktails to desert our time and money was well spent. My husband and myself had the Chateau for two and it was excellent. Don't for get the chocolate mousse for desert!!!
Classic American Steakhouse - Kudos!!!

We just decided to take a break from all the wonderful seafood in the area, and we were totally happy with our choice of Brennan's Steakhouse. We got the Chateaubriand for two, and it was perfect! Even though we were stuffed, we still had to try the Banana Foster for desert, and we were happy we did! Delicious!

I was very disappointed. My "prime" cowboy ribeye was full of gristle. Sides were average. Deserts were below average. My bottle of wine was excellent (if pricey). I will not be back. Most disappointing restaurant visit in the last 25 years of eating in New Orleans.
Wonderful Good food great wine

Wait staff was pleasant and attentive. Food was well prepared and delivered hot. The only negative was that we were seated by the main lobby and across from the lounge. It was a nice room, but somewhat noisy.
Excellent food and service.

The restaurant was very good! However, it is a bit overpriced as is every restaurant in NOLA... And the stench from the street wafts down into the dining room... but we enjoyed our dinner and the friendly staff!
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.
