Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

This was supposed to be an excellent steakhouse!!! We had to tell the receptionist our name 3 separate times!! We were seated near the kitchen which is always way to busy for us . The waitress at first was very attentive,about halfway thru dinner it declined sharply! Ordered escargot as an appetizer that came out in a hollowed out what appeared to be a dog bone !! Crab cake was excellent ! Ordered chateaubriand for two 1/2 medium rare , 1/2 medium well it all looked the same to us !! Sides looked as though they were trying fill the plate for esthetics ! The filet also was very close to cold when served !! Ordered bananas foster bread pudding it was so rich that it needed ice cream to dilute it !!! Overall we will not return due to not only the food being below par , but it was so loud that you couldn't have a normal conversation !!!

Great meal at Dickie Brennan's prior to a show at the Saenger Theatre. The Bone Marrow Escargot appetizer is superb especially enjoyed with a nice bottle of Bordeaux. The Filet Rossini was cooked to perfection and we liked the blending of flavors in the presentation. The coconut cake was out of this world good.

When I made my reservation I did not mention where I wanted to be seated. Somehow, the reserved my favorite table for me. The other party was a bit late arriving but the politely accommodated my wife and I. Our server was patient. The food, as usual was perfect. There was a minor issue with the turtle soup but they immediately replaced this with lobster bisque, which was wonderful. The two kids that were part of our group received special attention. The entrees were perfectly cooked. I will always make an effort to visit the establishment on every visit to NOLA.

Worst dinning experience
We paid the bill, ( handed it to our waitress) went to leave and was accused of not paying the bill
Threaten to put my wife in the basement. I wasn't sure if the staff was trying to steal my bill money because I paid in cash . It was resolved by a ton of ( we are so sorry about this) once they realized the bill was paid
I would not recommend anyone to go there to eat.

Wonderful food and the service was outstanding! Our waitress recommended the Sweet Potato cake for dessert and it was one of the best desserts I've ever tasted! She also recommended a certain wine which we also loved.

Food was truly outstanding but the service was not good at all. They were busy, but there were at least three staff assigned to our small dining room. Glasses went empty. Big disappointment for this level of restaurant.

Well it was simply amazing. The service was perfect, not even a crumb stood a chance at our table. I got in my water requirements for the day, thanks to the staff. I don't drink wine but after listening to the wine expert, I wanted to open a vinyard. My steak was amazing and my husband looked even hotter gazing at me over his steak!
The crab claws should be illegal they were so delicious, If I was another restaurant, I wouldn't even try to compete in that catagory. Thanks for making our date night the best in our 3 nights visiting NOLA.

We had a great meal here. The escargot with the marrow bone was our favorite dish. The steaks, au gratin potatoes, and chocolate mousse were great too The service was not very personable, but still mostly friendly and attentive. Would return or recommend.

Exquisite service, excellent wine list, and specialty steaks. Their specials included a limited number of wagyu steaks--so tender one could almost not need a knife. The porterhouse was so huge, we decided to share it and Chef Greg suggested chateau style wth the meat sliced, accompanied with four sides on a huge platter. Great idea! Came with 3 sauces but none were needed. The creamed corn was so flavorful with whole fresh kernels. That's a must next time. Mushrooms were an excellent combination of shiitake and buttons. Potatoes au gratin were creamy and the asparagus crisp. The white anchovies crostini and mixed greens salad with pickled radishes and sweet peppers were a terrific start to the heavenly meal, but the dessert of 7-layer sweet potato cake was the best way to end our dinner--not cloyingly sweet and with the aromas of a hint of sweet potatoes is another must for our return visit. Our last evening in New Orleans was one to remember and will certainly bring us back to NOLA.

Went recently while on vacation in New Orleans to celebrate mine and a friend's birthday. We wanted to enjoy a nice meal while we were there. Our friend wanted to order some champagne or sparkling wine to do a toast. The server could not answer any questions or make any reomendations but the girl who came by to help in his place was even less help. A bottle is decided on, only for her to come back and say they are out and another is selected. She comes back again saying that she told us the wrong price, the price she gave us was for the 375ml and not the full bottle like she originally said. So if we wanted the full bottle the price was double, we decided on something and she ordered it by the glass for the each of us. Our reservation was at 830 by this time it is now about a quarter after 9. We have ordered our dinner in between all this. My fiance and I order the Chateaubriand for two and our friend orders the petite filet, asparagus and a seasonal salad. It was about 945 when our dinners come out. This is where it went really downhill. Her steak was under cooked, she sent it back. Ours came out shortly after and not only was ours under cooked but everything with the exception of the gratin potatoes was cold. What came back, was perhaps one of the worst meals I have had. The meat had no flavor and tasted as if maybe it had been microwaved. I've had better steaks at Outback. The gratin had absolutely no flavor at all. At this point it's almost 11. With both dinners going back and the other issues, you'd think the manager would have come over to the table, nope too busy checking glasses for spots. I have no problem with higher prices if the food and service merit but in this case it was an incredibly expensive disappointment. I had read reviews from people who had experiences similar to mine and thought about going to a different restaurant, next time I'll listen to my gut instinct. I will not be returning nor recommending to anyone.

i'm not a critic but enjoy fine dining. our recent visit to Dickie Brennans Steak House brought food cooked to our satisfaction.However our server Rafael failed to bring the correct order to our table,after having repeated the order back to us when taken.
The back up team did a tremendous job correcting Rafael's error.But in this situation we will not be back.Might try Ruth Chris.

We always try to visit Dickie Brennan's when we're in New Orleans and we've never been disappointed. Had a terrific evening with our daughter-in-law and can't wait to make a return visit. We had the House Filet and it's outstanding...and all desserts were wonderful. The staff is always outstanding and friendly...makes every visit special.

The staff at Dickie Brennan's were so kind and helpful. They answered all of our questions and recommended a fabulous wine that perfectly complemented our meal. My husband and I are young professionals (under 35) and we've had terrible experiences at other similar restaurants (it appears we are sometimes treated differently because we are younger than other patrons at those places). Dickie Brennan's renewed my faith in people and showed me that despite our age, my husband and I can have a wonderful meal and a fantastic night at a nice restaurant. We will definitely be returning regularly. Thank you to the owners, managers, and staff of Dickie Brennan's in the French Quarter for making our first date night in quite a while more memorable than we could have imagined!

Yelpers and Zagaters led me astray. Our grits from our shrimp and grits were hot outside and freezing cold in the middle (led me to believe they must have microwaved it and it was frozen before). So we sent them back to reheat. Our mid rare steaks came out well done and dry. I sent mine back then received an extremely rare, still blue/mooing steak in its place. I think the kitchen staff stopped caring at this point.
The server was horrified and comped my meal, drink, and dessert. She was great and we tipped her well since it wasn't her fault. For the priced they charge I'm appalled that the food was so subpar.
I'm surprised no manager came by since had to send food back twice. For the price they're charging I expected more - too expensive to accept and eat food prepared improperly.
Go to Doris Metropolitan steakhouse instead - the steaks there cut like butter.

I started the evening with the bone marrow escargot. I completely enjoy bone marrow and was slightly disappointed in that the marrow was more of a reduction sauce pooled over the dish rather than the rich marrow I am accustomed to. With that said the dish was very good, rich, flavorful start to my meal. I continued on to the filet rossini! The dish was cooked perfectly! Medium rare yet the bacon was crisp and the foie gras was rich and flavorful. The lobster tail was an added bonus but the filet was truly the best part. Overall a great experience. The staff were superior to most New Orleans establishments I have been to. Attentive, yet not hovering professional well appointed in their dress. You can't miss with this selection.

Incredibly disappointed in the service we received. Inattentive, server got multiple seat numbers wrong and served food to the wrong people and since it was steak multiple people started to cut into each other's food. Then to finish off the meal we had to ask for dessert that we ordered twice after waiting 25 min. The service captain was only seen from twice the entire meal. If 8 people are spending close to $800 dollars it should never be like this.

Every major city has a prime steakhouse and I have eaten at my share Dickie Brennans would be added to my top ten list. The restaurants vibe & décor harkens to a club room with deep wood paneling that makes you want to pull out your favorite cigar. The menu more or less is what you would find on a steakhouse menu with some outstanding exceptions like my escargot with bone marrow bones a different take than just garlic and butter. The entrée of prime strip was juicy, flavorful & cooked to perfection; crusty sear outside and tender pink inside. As typical veggies are ala carte and are an adequate partner to the steak but the star is the steak. Now you couple that with the great service provided and this is a winner and worth the price. While in NOLA if you're looking for steak forget the rest and check this place out.

Overall fair but disappointing for New Orleans. Been here 4-5 times per year for10 years . Decent food. Fair service. Loud atmosphere for a "nicer" restaurant. After fining all around town for many years and finally coming here... quite disappointed.

my prime rib came out cold.. they took it back and provided a new piece, which was moderately better. we were there early, so not sure what the problem was.. but they were very considerate of the gluten free requirements we had.. and the flourless brownie was AWESOME!!!
