Bourbon House Ratings and Reviews
Bailey our drink and dessert server was AMAZING!! He was so nice and personable and made great drink suggestions for everyone. He deserves a raise! Or a promotion!!
Food was amazing too. Red fish on the half shell was just as great as i was promised it would be.
Hotel restaurants get a bad rap but Bourbon House, like all Brennan properties, is high-quality and consistent. Besides the food, which is always good, I love the floor-to-ceiling arched windows looking out to Bourbon Street. Best people-watching spot in New Orleans. Friendly, expert staff and outstanding food. Love love love the milk punch. Don't pass by this restaurant just because it's connected to a hotel (Astor Crowne Plaza). Go!
I was excited to go to this restaurant after reading the reviews. I chose this for my husband and I's first anniversary. We ordered oysters to start, which I have to say was the best part of the whole experience. A man who specialized in the drinks came to take our drink order. He said he would be back to check on us, but never returned until our drinks had been empty for 10+ minutes and we were pretty much finished. Our food was rushed, our entrees were brought out before we finished our soup. Other tables were giving bags of French bread, which we were not. The crab stuffed fish was dry. My husbands tuna was decent. Overall very disappointing experience.
We went in a couple of times during our visit to New Orleans this past week. Antonio and Sandy were the 1st two we encountered on our monday arrival. I had the BBQ Shrimp - GREAT and messy. Also had the grilled oysters - GREAT again. Try the Dark and Stormy and Milk Punch they were both wonderful, even had milk punch for breakfast.
This would be our second trip to bourbon house , first time we got up and walked our as the wait staff didn't acknowledge us after quite some time so we left . Really wanted to try it so we gave it Nother go -big mistake. Really super nice waitress bur very poor attention to detail even though there was a great deal of wAit staff.
We frequent Brennan's restaurants and don't mind paying for quality food. The service was poor and the food overpriced. Part of the meal came late and cold. The?server tried to fix it by giving us a free drink to go- it didn't work. I will not dine at this restaurant again. The folks seated next to us were very load and appeared drunk. Taken together, we won't be back.
Located in the French Quarter, the food was outstanding. Also, the protein portions were really large, so you're not just paying to fill up on bread. The service was good. There is construction work outside right now, but normally, you would have a great view of Bourbon Street.
First time visit to this Brennan's restaurant, and it did not disappoint. The Summer special of shrimp fettuccine and house salad was fantastic and worth the money.
The service was exceptional and we did not want for anything. Looking forward to returning for dinner in the future. Definite 'must try' restaurant.
Given the crappy places located along Bourbon Street, you'd be hard pressed to find a better cleaner place for a drink or food. Shrimp was overcooked/shrunk down, and oysters were clearly shucked an hour before I had them, so a little dry. Still with the bar and order small plates, save your big meals for Felix's and Acme.
Everything started great....wonderful bourbon flight and appetizers. Then the meal began. Mine was between fair and good - the sea bass over vegetables. My wife's first came out as the wrong order (she ordered the shrimp and fettuccine). Once replaced (quickly) it was apparent the shrimp had not been peeled, the dish was extraordinarily salty, and the fettuccine poorly cooked. She picked at it a bit, but ate virtually none of it. We then pointed out the unpeeled shrimp to the waiter, who acted appalled. However, when the bill came, the dish remained on the bill, at which point I asked that it be removed, specifically since it was "inedible," in my words. It was all handled very poorly. Any decent restaurant would have immediately removed the dish from the bill (without request) and offered something (anything, really) for our trouble. A very disappointing experience for a restaurant that was recommended by a local friend. We won't be back.
Food was just okay. Would expect to get something more than just shrimp with a shrimp main entree, ie, a starch and/or vegetables. Too many waitstaff attending a table - they were uncoordinated with one another which led to gaffes. For example, one waiter brought a bowl and towels for my shrimp shells. Another waiter took it away before I had chance to use it and before the "peel your own" shrimp entree arrived.
We wanted a nice dinner to celebrate a friends birthday and Bourbon House did not disappoint! Patrick walked us to our table and got to know where we were from and had a pleasant conversation! Bailey was AMAZING and took care of all of our drinks and dessert needs! He kept us entertained! Amy got all of our food out perfectly! I would absolutely recommend to anybody visiting New Orleans!
Overall, a disappointment. The LA oysters were outstanding (but they were raw and required no prep). The fish on a half shell with crab meat, a signature dish, was OK but overall boring and far below what we should get from an expensive New Orleans restaurant. Can't even remember the dessert.
Too much money for OK food. Look for more innovative, fresher ideas.
I have been by this place many times when visiting NOLA and finally decided to try it. Great attentive service without being in your face all the time. The soup appetizer was a special that didn't quite live up to the description of the waiter. It was a peppered steak soup which was described as basically a pepper steak with a little bit of tomato base broth - what I got was basically a beef vegetable soup with a few pieces of pepper steak in it. While it wasn't bad I probably wouldn't order again and it certainly was over-hyped by the waiter. The seafood platter were described as voted the best in New Orleans. While I don't have a lot to compare against I will say that the fried catfish was excellent and there was a lot of food.
Absolute MUST TRY -- Charbroiled oysters!!! Best I had in the Quarter. We were in NOLA celebrating my daughter's 18th birthday. Bourbon Street is a fitting place for this restaurant -- a lot of glitz and show. A large space with lots of hard surfaces reflecting sound. It also appears to be a magnet for bachelorette parties, college reunion groups and other rowdy crowds. So meaningful conversation is difficult. The food is good -- not just the oysters -- but variable. My daughter had the creole shrimp carbonara and said it was the best pasta dish she'd ever had. My son enjoyed the fried whole fish because he's a glutton for challenges. My wife had the blackened tuna that, all in all, was a waste of tuna. It was so spicy as to be nearly inedible. I had the smothered chicken which was only passable. Desserts, on the other hand, were universally loved.
Had a brunch reservation, walked in and no greeting at all, the hostess just started walking away with two menus assuming we would follow her. We were seated and got okay service from that point on. Basically treated like tourists, and the breakfast was not worth the cost. The milk punch is the only noteworthy thing, it was amazing!
