We had our rehearsal dinner and 'welcome party' at Brennan's on March 22, 2018. We had the rehearsal dinner in the King's Room on the second floor, and the welcome party in the courtyard. It was the perfect way to welcome our guests (all from out of town) to New Orleans - especially out on the balcony overlooking Royal Street from the King's room! The food at Brennan's was absolutely fantastic (as you'd expect), and the service was wonderful as well. We actually saw our "personal" server from that night from the street (waving to us from Brennan's) during our second line the next day! We worked with Ashley Brodie throughout the process who was responsive and helpful throughout as we chose our menu and figured out which spaces to host our events in. All in all it was a wonderful experience and the most iconic spot to kick off our wedding weekend!Sent on 07/09/2018

We had a destination wedding in New Orleans and chose Brennan's as our venue. They did not disappoint. Ashley Brodie was wonderful coordinating everything. The food was delicious, the rooms (Havana Room & Morphy) were absolutely beautiful. All our guests loved it. We had a minor mix up with the number of tables but the staff was very quick to fix it with no hesitation. All in all it was a truly wonderful and memorable experience.

Great experience coordinating our wedding dinner
My wife and I live on the East Coast and planned a destination wedding in New Orleans. Brennan's was very responsive and made remotely coordinating our wedding dinner very stress free. The space is beautiful and gave us some amazing after wedding photos. The service was great, and the food was incredible.

Great experience at Brennan's for our wedding. Seated dinner for 80, went off perfectly. Many out of town guests and they were all blown-away with the food. Would do it there again in a heartbeat!

Call Ashley Brodie for anything! She is amazing and will make you feel like the only top priority.

Brennan's provided a beautiful, well organized venue for our rehearsal dinner. The food was delicious, the staff well trained and responsive, and the refined atmosphere provided a relaxed, yet civil background for our evening of cheer and pre wedding excitement.

I don't even know where to start - Brennan's was my absolute favorite part of my wedding! From the very start of wedding planning to the end of our wedding night, Ashley made the process so easy and enjoyable. The food, drinks, and staff were incredible. Fan favorites included the oyster bar and shrimp & grits! We worked with Ashley, the wedding coordinator, who had all details laid out and coordinated all of the vendors so I did not have to worry about a thing when it came to the reception. It's apparent that she has tons of experience with wedding planning, and that is invaluable. People are still talking about how this our wedding was one of the best they've been to, and I know that's 100% thanks to Ashley and the Brennan's team. HIGHLY recommend them for any event that you may be considering them for.

From my first contact with Ashley thru the goodbyes to our servers, our experience with Brennan's and the staff was wonderful. Ashley was great. She was very patient with my concerns and changes during the planning process. She even went so far as to customize our menus which turned out beautifully. Joaquin and his co server were extremely attentive and accommodating during our dinner. The food was acceptable but actually the outstanding service was the best part of our Brennan's experience.Sent on 09/05/2017

My husband and I were very fortunate to host our small wedding ceremony and reception at Brennan's. Ashley was wonderful to work with to iron out all the details ahead of time. We loved the location, menu, and appearance of the restaurant. We were really pleased with the Morphy room for our ceremony with private dining room attached. It was perfect for our small event (March 18). The servers were so friendly and professional. For anyone wanting a small, simple, but lovely and private evening for your wedding - I would highly recommend Brennan's!

We had my sister's bridal luncheon at Brennan's in the Queen's Room. Both of the managers that I worked with (Ashley Brodie and Hill) could not have been lovelier. Ashley Brodie even responded to my queries while she was technically on vacation. The decorations they had on each table were lovely. Byron, who was in charge of service on the day of, was fantastic and personable. The service was efficient, and all of our guests RAVED about the food. In the chaos of leaving, we forgot to take the custom menus with us, and they were kind enough to send us a few copies after the fact. I highly recommend Brennan's and their staff.

We had an absolutely beautiful wedding in the courtyard at Brennan’s in February. The wedding was in the evening and Ashley suggested using candles around the fountain for additional lighting. We also decided to add candles down the aisle with white rose petals and rented the white chairs. Ashley also suggested having a cocktail hour. We only had the courtyard for an hour so we decided to have the cocktail hour first and then the ceremony in the middle of the cocktail hour. It worked out beyond our imagination! Everyone loved it, my husband did not want to leave when I told him we had to move everyone upstairs! We had dinner in the King and Queen’s room. The food was amazing, especially the wedding cake and apple and pear bread pudding (by far the best I have ever had). The staff were great to work with throughout the entire setup and event. We also appreciate how accommodating Bill and the staff were when we got slightly derailed watching the Mardi Gras parade. Having access to the balcony definitely created an experience none of our guest will forget!

If you want the most authentic New Orleans experience in a historic, beautiful, and exceptional dining establishment, look no further. If you're on a tight budget, this might not be your place. But if the money is in the budget, you will definitely feel that you truly get what you pay for....nothing less than the best. We would do it all over again in a heartbeat it was such an amazing experience! Ashley Brodie is extremely attentive and knowledgable, and is well suited for her role as Wedding Sale Manager at Brennan's. We will find many more opportunities to celebrate at Brennan's in the future!
Heather · Married on 06/18/2016
My wife and I recently had our rehearsal dinner for our wedding on June 17, 2016 at Brennans the night before for 53 people. Let me say it was an AMAZING experience. The staff was prompt and kind, the food was beyond delicious, and all of the guests had a wonderful time. It was easy to put together a fun night for our bridal party and family, even planning from Seattle, Wa because the menu/party information was so clear and the events sales manager Ashley Brodie was very helpful too. Thank you Breannans for such an amazing evening!

Brennan's was the perfect place for our rehearsal dinner!! The food, service, everything was fabulous.
Christina · Married on 03/12/2016
Ashley and the staff at Brennan's were absolutely wonderful! We had our wedding reception at Brennan's in March 2016 and it was truly a spectacular night. I'm not exactly the kind of person that had been planning her wedding since she was a little girl, but that's what made Brennan's so perfect for our evening. It is elegant, beautiful, and classic New Orleans and was a theme of its own. Ashley and the staff made everything from laying out a great floor plan to choosing a fabulous menu easy. They were very accommodating and responsive throughout the planning process. They also worked seamlessly with our vendors. The food was absolutely incredible!! The entire experience was top of the notch professional, exquisite, and unforgettable.

We held our son's rehearsal dinner at Brennan's and it was a beautiful and memorable event. Our event coordinator, Ashley Brodie was a delight to work with. She was able to offer excellent suggestions and advice along the way and in the months between signing our contract up until our event, I was never in doubt that everything would be under control and turn out as we were hoping. At the end of our evening we were not disappointed and if it is even possible, exceeded our expectations. The entire staff that evening attended to our every need impeccably. The room was absolutely beautiful and the tables arranged exactly as I had requested. All of our guests had a wonderful time and I'm sure it was an evening that will be fondly remembered for years to come.

We used Brennan's for two events- (1) a small sit down rehearsal dinner for 25 people in the Queen's room and (2) a large Welcome Party for all of our wedding guests in the courtyard. Both events were absolutely fantastic and the planning and coordination up to the events was wonderful. Can't say enough good things about our experience with Brennan's and Ashley Brodie. Brennan's was so helpful and amenable to all of our requests, they made planning this event very easy!Sent on 03/29/2018
The food was fantastic at both events- we had the gumbo, shrimp & grits, pork tenderloin, bananas fosters, and bread pudding between the two events. We had a tasting several months ahead of our events and the tasting was really great and well run.
The small dinner for 28 was very intimate in the Queen's room upstairs. The service was fantastic and seamless. Everything ran on time, the room wasn't too loud so you could hear people talk, and you had access to the balcony overlooking Royal Street. In addition to the set menu (and the beautiful personalized menus that Brennan's provides for you), we opted for cocktails and drinks a la cart.
For the Welcome Party in the courtyard, we had about 120 guests, several food stations, a bar, and a live band. Brennan's typically uses a banquet table for a bar, so we worked with Luminous events to provide a proper bar (as well as lighting). There was a threat of rain the day of our event, so we opted to put up the tent. The tent was beautiful, however the courtyard became very warm very quickly since you don't have very good air circulation- so something to keep in mind with a tent. Our only complaint at the party was that the single bar was very slow, so people were walking inside to purchase drinks at the bar. About 20 minutes into the party this issue was alleviated, so Brennan's was responsive when we raised the issue.
Settling the bill was also very easy- which when you have a lot of bills to pay for your vendors this is much appreciated.

Ashley, the event manager, made the planning of our event exceptionally easy. They were so accommodating and the service was excellent. My guests raved about the food and drinks and loved the atmosphere of Brennan's. I would highly recommend Brennan's as a place to host your event.
Jackie · Married on 12/31/2016
Loved the color scheme of the King's Room; it served as an elegant venue to host our son's wedding rehearsal dinner. Byron was flexible to set up another table last minute to accommodate additional guests. He and his team of servers were very attentive to our needs. Food had excellent flavor and presentation. Well pleased!
