  • "We came for the restaurant weeks deal The food was excellent but as the restaurant became more busy the noise level went up considerably and became difficult to have a conversation without shouting."

  • "My manager is based in London and was visiting the Houston office this week. While he's no stranger to Houston, this was the FIRST time that he had been to Brenner's. He was absolutely pleased with the dining experience from the atmosphere, to the wine selection and on to the quality of the food. The remainder of the party were equally impressed."

  • "Too loud for conversation. Needs sound absorption on ceiling."

  • "Very good service from all wait staff, water was refilled without having to ask. The food was prepared excellently, and presented very well. Food was hot, and had flavour. Waiter recommended several items on the menu. The table and room were very nicely decorated with everything being clean. We had a great view of their back garden with waterfall. Overall, a very special evening."

  • "We went for Restaurant week. The food and service were great and definitely plan to go back again. The only negative was the almost 40 min wait we had for our table even though we had a reservation Would recommend to anyone"

  • "The restaurant was very noisy. We were seated in a very dark corner. My glass of Pinot Grigio was disappointing, after a few sips the waiter brought me a glass of Chardonnay which was better (at no extra cost). The lettuce in my wedge salad was stale, the bleu cheese dressing disappointing, the bacon a hard stick, the diced tomatoes not fresh. To my surprise, the second fork the waiter brought me for the main course had a small spider on a web crawling all around the tines. When I showed it to the waiter, all he said was "Oh, I'll get you another one". The fried shrimp and mashed potatoes were supurb!, but there was not a hint of a veggie. A kind of weird experience."

  • "Great service, as always. They helped us celebrate our wedding anniversary, reserved the best table with a view of the beautiful landscaping, and worked with my husband to have roses on the table. The food: high quality ingredients, delicious, traditional yet great. For something unique, I recommend the "chicken fried filet mignon," which was great! I usually order the traditional filet or ribeye (which my husband ordered), but this was intriguing, and I just had to have it. I ordered extra cream gravy, and it was foodie comfort heaven! The crab cocktail, one of my favorites, as it is pure lump crabmeat with a homemade remoulade on the side, was wonderful. For a change from the crime brûlée, I tried the lemon tart for dessert--delicious!"

  • "Good food, attentive staff. Gardens are beautiful. But dining room is borderline tiny and is noisy when full. Dining in the non-main dining room is unpleasant."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Out waiter acted completely put out and was not friendly. They have removed several things from the menu, which was disappointing. My husbands steak was not good and daughters fried chicken extremely dry."
    Dined on 8/17/2014

  • "This was my 2nd visit to Brenners. Absolutely some of the best food you'll ever eat. The waitstaff are amazing and attentive. Wonderful ambiance. They offer specials. Well worth a visit! Or two! Or three!"

  • "I hadn't been there in years. Still have great steaks cooked perfectly. I really liked the back building. The hostess escorted us to our table through the garden area passed the stream. My girlfriend loved the evening out. Thank you."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I went with two girl friends for a celebration dinner. We all had the 6 oz. filet mignon and it was wonderful - juicy, flavorful and tender. We had a side of asparagus. The asparagus were large, plump and beautifully prepared. We ended the meal with two apple strudels (house specialty) and one triple chocolate dessert. Both were very good and the presentation excellent. Out waiter and waiter in training were entertaining, as well as, attentive. The garden view was beautiful. I want to take my husband back for an anniversary celebration. It was a wonderful find. Thanks to all at Brenner's."

  • "This was our second "traditional" visit to Brenner's for our anniversary. Our waiter Seth was great, very attentive and provided great service. As expected, our meal was nothing short of fantastic, Brenner's without a doubt has the BEST steak dinner in town, bar none! The crab cake appetizer was outstanding, and as East coast natives, we KNOW good crab cakes! Thank you again, we'll see you next year!"

  • "My husband and I were very happy with the service and food we received from Brenner's. Our waiter was absolutely outstanding. The food tasted wonderful. The atmosphere is small and quaint - perfect for a special date night. We enjoyed walking around in the beautiful gardens out back. You may also request to have secluded dining outside. I believe that you must make that request with your reservation. Loved Brenner's and plan to return!"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "I read many reviews about how great this place was. Our server was very rude. She had an attitude the entire time. When the table was getting cleared, she replied with "in fine dining, there is silverware everywhere". As if me and my wife have never had a nice meal in our life. Very rude and slow service when she was only taking care of 3 tables. There was also no interaction as she did with other tables. Her name was Tracy, and I vow to never eat at that place every again, and if anyone asks for a recommendation, I would rather them go to a finer establishement such as Perry's or Flemings."

  • "We were visiting from out of town and traveling East on the 10. The building and landscaping attracted my attention so I goggled the name. Once I learned the history, it was a must visit. We had been looking for a genuine steak dinner and our experience exceeded expectations."

  • "Went for my birthday and was made to fee very special!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We enjoyed a great anniversary dinner at Brenner's. We often go here for special occasions. The food was great, served very hot the way my wife likes and the steaks were just the right doneness. Staff was friendly and attentive. We had a nice table overlooking the beautiful garden. It's a calm, relaxing and cozy atmosphere. You forget that you are adjacent to a major highway. We've never been disappointed."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We were seated in a back room of the restaurant, not the main dining room for some reason. It looked like a banquet area. The table for two was very small. The decor was old and dated."

We looked it up online, made our reservations and are so glad we did. We've already recommended Brenner's to our friends and will return for other special occasions. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening."

    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The crab balls and quail appetizers were exceptional. The rest of the meal was good but not exceptional. Steak was salty, the way I like it. Those looking to control sodium intake should discuss with server before ordering. Service was excellent."

  • "Delicious and gorgeous. One of our favorite places to celebrate life."

  • "A fantastic experience. We were celebrating my son's birthday. This has been his favorite restaurant since the early 1970's. The menu has changed, but the food was delicious. Our waiter was attentive, but did not hover. A bit pricey, but for our nostalgic dinner party Benner's was perfect. As an aside, I was disappointed that the old style German potatoes were not on the menu, but I was able to get some when I asked. They were not quite the same recipe, but did go well with my "able to cut it with a fork" steak."
