The food was great. I had turtle soup. It was very tasty. For my entree I had the filet with potatoes au gratin. It was fabulous too. With one glass of wine and a generous tip my bill was less than 65 dollars which is a bargain in New Orleans. I will definitely go back and try some other items on the menu. I would highly recommend this restaurant

Excellent spot for brunch. The band, vibe from Jackson Square and ambiance of the historic house were an incredible combo. The service was top notch, and the quality and portions of the food were perfect. I would highly recommend Tableau.

The food was impeccable and the server did an excellent job describing the dishes, making recommendations, and accommodating my dairy-free girlfriend. Every staff member we encountered was friendly, helpful, and attentive. As an added bonus, we got to watch a parade go by down Chartres St as we ate; a little noisy, but as visitors to the city, we appreciated it.

Our experience was very marginal
We went there for her birthday
it was a quiet night my steak was under cooked and cold and the waitstaff in the middle of our meal with one of our party still eating the meal began to clear all of the plates and started to tear down and replace the evening set ups for the morning or lunch so overall it was not the high Quality experience that I had anticipated

We arrived on time for our reservation and were escorted past the white tablecloth dining area and upstairs to a more casual bar area to be seated. Our "table" which was not a dining table at all but rather two small round drink tables set side-by-side was not clean so we waited several minutes for it to be prepared. Once seated, the service was slow although friendly. When the food finally arrived, it was satisfactory but nothing to write home about. Overall, we were rather disappointed with our experience at this restaurant that had been recommended to us by a friend.

Booked this restaurant for New Year's Eve before the Fleur de Lis drop at Jax Brewery. The restaurant environment was very relaxed and cozy. The dishes that we had crabmeat appetizer was really good for a starter meal. The Chicken Tableau and BBQ Shrimp and Grits were very tasty. We topped off our meal with wine and Creme Brulee. Service was wonderful and our waitress made us feel very welcome.

We were here for NYE and it was amazing!!! Right before midnight everyone ran up stairs to the balcony to ring in the new year and watch the fire works from the river. The food was fabulous.. I had a lobster shrimp asparagus salad that was wonderful! Also the Tart a la Bouille highly recommended!

We had New Years Eve dinner here at this restaurant after making a booking online a few months ahead and it was very special.The food was delicious and beautifully presented and the service was excellent. We were not rushed and were made to feel very special. It was a lovely way to start our New Years Eve night

It is a great address and the food was fantastic. We made our order of both starters and main course. We asked the waiter to make a short break between courses. He for some reason forgot that we had already ordered the main course. After we had decided the pause was just too long we asked him where our second course was. His remark was, 'oh, would you like to order now'?
Too bad for such a nice place. Don't know if I could recommend it...

We had dinner with wine, soup, entrees, and dessert. Good variety of wine options, including half bottles and large format. The soups and entrees were quite good, but the real standout was the creme brulee for dessert. Service was very attentive with two servers, one of them a waitress with a fun attitude, who made good recommendations for the wine and dessert.

Came here for my anniversary dinner with my SO. While the food was terrific and the service was amazing, I was a little frustrated with how LOUD it was inside the restaurant. I couldn't here a word my SO was saying and vice versa. We had to sit incredibly close in order to hear each other.
Otherwise, I loved Tableau

We are local guests that love to enjoy New Orleans on a regular basis and sharing the wonderful dining experiences and beauty of our city. We have dined at Tableau many times and have been very satisfied in the past; however, the last two times we have dined at this location it has been disappointing. The most recent experienced lacked good service as it was not friendly and very slow with having to ask multiple times for items that should have been automatic.
The food was cold and lacked the Brennan favor that we are used to experiencing. Come on Dickie do a shake up at Tableau and bring back that great New Orleans food and dining experience that Brennan Resturants are known for in New Orleans.

A pleasure of a meal. We were with three generations, including two small children. They accommodated us graciously, and outside in a pleasant courtyard with a few other groups so we did not disturb other diners interested in a more intimate evening. Excellent food and service. The wild mushroom crostini was a treat, as was the asparagus and seafood salad - the combination of crab meat and asparagus was perfect. The turtle soup was different from the usual served at a Brennan's restaurant. Overall everything excellent and would recommend to anyone.

Christmas eve dinner, and they were busy but we had reservation. Young lady first tried to seat us at small table in room with the bar, and I said no thanks, so she nicely moved us to an upstairs room that was excellent.
Food and service were excellent !!!!

First time visit on Christmas Eve did not disappoint! Food, ambiance and service were fabulous. Asked for - and got- a balcony table to people watch Jackson Square. Staff was very attentive and food was just superb. Would definitely recommend!

Food was off the chart fresh, innovative, and indescribably delicious. My meal started with a delicious salad with blue crab meet, then a mix of fresh seafood including crab claws in truffle butter, and finally a filet medium rare with Bernaise sauce asparagus and more fresh Blue crab. OFF THE HOOK maginificent. Dinner was paired with a delicious French white wine - a little pricey but also magnificent. Armagenac with a latte and desser to polish off he meal. Ambience was great - with a nice mix of experienced wait staff and newbies in training. Can't fault anything and I'm not one to give unwarranted praise. 5 Stars!!!

Our recent visit to this Brennan's restaurant was prior to a Christmas play at Le Petit Theater. My wife and I opted for the Pre Fixe menu, consisting of a soup or appetizer, an entree and a dessert. My wife selected the shrimp remoulade, the tournedos and the custard tart. I selected the seafood gumbo, the grilled redfish topped with sauteed crabmeat and the cafe au lait chocolate pudding.
Even though these items sound routine, each is prepared with a New Orleans twist. For instance, the shrimp remoulade was served with handmade shrimp cracklin'. The custard tart was drizzled with a caramel sauce. The seafood gumbo contained file, shrimp, crabmeat and oysters. The chocolate pudding in the cafe au lait dessert was tinged with coffee and chickory. Overall, the flavors meshed perfectly with each other and the entire meal was enough food to leave you satisfied.
The service was excellent, the cocktails were very good and the ambiance could not have been better. Very festive atmosphere and a lively crowd added to the experience.

This was Christmas Celebration Dinner. On a cold, rainy , dreary night this restaurant brightened our souls. Beautiful restaurant, simple but sophisticated with attention to detail.
The soup de jour was incredible along with the Red fish Iberville for a follow up entre' was just outstanding.
This was my 4th or 5th visit and it has never disappointed.
