Brenner's Steakhouse on the Bayou
MrService was great! did everything they could to accommodate us.Wasn't the best steak i've ever had but was still pretty good.

Our server was amazing, very funny and took care of us very well!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic RestaurantWe went here for brunch on Mother's Day. I had never been to this restaurant and was very impressed with the food/service.
We were seated by a window upstairs that had a very pretty view of the garden in the back. Our server named 'Trey' was excellent and attended to our needs perfectly. I ordered the crab cakes on the brunch menu and they were delicious.
Everyone in my party enjoyed our time here and we would all return again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchTook my wife here for Mother's Day. Our server was excellent, as was the food. This was our second visit & we will definitely be back. The view is calming & the gardens are well-kept.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery special!Everything about the evening was wonderful. Great food, service and atmosphere!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirtrhday CelebrationFood and service was outstanding. The ambience was over the top. I recommend this restaurant for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, and romantic night out. Will return and place on my list of restaurants for my friends to visit.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good VisitFood and ambience are excellent. Overall service was very good but the restaurant was busy and not quite the attention to detail as in past visits. We had called ahead and requested a table by the window for a special birthday but were put in the back instead. We still had a very good time but disappointed we were not able to be accommodated.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food Great ServiceHow much better can you get than Great Food and Great Service! The manager (Taylor/Tyler?) granted and catered to very unique request. The entire waitstaff made our party of 5 feel extremely welcomed. I will come back and recommend this place to anyone. The rib eye was cooked to perfection. Lamb was tasty and didn't have that strong odor like some other places do. Lobster Bisque was tasty. Everything was exceptional. The wait staff was excellent even with so many private parties being hosted. Thank you Brenner's!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBrennar's is the BestI want to say I definitely enjoyed my recent visit to Brennar's. In fact I was stuck in traffic and was late for my reservation I called the restaurant to tell I would be late they were very friendly and assured me that I would have my table when I arrived. When I arrived the other people in my party were at the table and we enjoyed a wonderful meal. The appetizers were great the meal was wonderful didn't have room for dessert but I'm sure that would have been spectacular. Great restaurant for business, special occasions or just because.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeI really like the place, it is free of traffical noice. Food is great and the service and attitude just perfect, thank you for a great experience.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and view - great night!This restaurant has a beautiful setting and the food was great, too.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak was excellentWe truly enjoyed dining here. The steak was one of the best we have had in Houston.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNice but not really worth the $159The Good: Very nice dining atmosphere. Service was very good. Our waiter was quite young but attentive just enough and well presented. The bacon wrapped quail was well cooked & tasty. The crab cakes were very tasty.
Things to improve: Some of the forks were well used, but not quite as bad a buffet forks. The scallop was tasty & well cooked, but the sauce completely over powered the scallop with an over use of dill. The braised pork short rib was bland w/o the sauce.
The bad: The $19 Crab Infused Mac & Cheese tastes and looks like Kraft Mac & Cheese with a little crab meat in it & a bit of cheddar on top. The waiter said the appetizer was a split ap for 2, each w/ quail, crab cake, & scallop. Yet I was billed for 2 appetizers.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWE LOVE BRENNERS!!This place is always so wonderful!! I can't say enough about this restaurant!! Our server Jason was outstanding and extremely knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. He gave us some great suggestions. We can't thank you enough for creating such an enjoyable dining experience.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSecret OasisBrenner on the Bayou have beautiful landscaping and romantic walkpaths.

Wonderful surprise to walk into such an incredible piece of property especially in the outskirts of downtown Houston. Service was outstanding. The menu is not huge but well rounded and the food is very good. Unfortunately we were somewhat rushed due to having a baby sitter at home, really needed to have 2 hours to fully appreciate the dining experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food in a vibrantWonderful food in a vibrant setting. One of our new favorite resturants. Service was excellent.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I always recommendMy wife and I always recommend Brenner's on the Bayou. It's in the middle of the city but you feel like you're on a retreat somewhere. Food is always fantastic as well as the waitstaff. They have an extensive wine list that is sure to have something that strikes your fancy. Out on the patio they have the Blue Bar, a modern yet sophisticated place to get some after dinner drinks (or before dinner).4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable for men andVery enjoyable for men and women in party. Shared appetizers and desserts.
Went outside for night cap.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPlease substitute our fries.....NO!Went to Brenners to celebrate a birthday, just the two of us. We were promptly seated. First thing I noticed immediately was the fact that my chair and table were listing slightly to the left and my chair was a little slippery and I did not find it relaxing. Our waiter was great and the food was very good. The music which they have playing is designed to get you to drink and eat fast so they can turn the table and I found the music slightly annoying. My date ordered the fried shrimp and wanted to substitute something for the french fries and they would not not allow her to do so. That is ridiculous. My filet was very good. The room temperature was very good, I was able to leave my jacket on which was nice. All in all 7/104/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWow, the filet mignon andWow, the filet mignon and lobster tail were perfectly prepared. A glass of Jordan cabernet paired nicely. A very nice dinner and evening.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was great. The first tableIt was great. The first table we got however had the sun right in our faces. We were moved to another table, luickly one was avilable. If not the dinner may have gone differently no one wants to pay that much for a meal and have the sun in your face.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great, excellentFood was great, excellent atmosphere and wonderful night out to dinner. Only issue to me was the "upselling" from the waiter. Every visit to the table felt like a "sale" versus really serving us on a night out. Nice and attentive, but the sales focus kept this from being an outstanding experience.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely fabulous restaurant!We went for our 2nd wedding anniversary and it was fabulous!! I don't remember our waitresses name but she was fantastic! I definitely recommend this restaurant!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI love everything about Brenner'sI love everything about Brenner's on the bayou, ambiance, service, food and location.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff really went aboveThe staff really went above and beyond to make this a very special evening.

It's a very different vibe if you sit inside vs out. Both are nice but attire is much different. Beautiful grounds along the Bayou.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest brunchI have been here many many times, but brunch was the best in town. Ask for table 71 when 2 are dining. Love this place!!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBrenner's on the Bayou isBrenner's on the Bayou is one of my favorites. This visit was Easter Brunch. The food was good, but the service was off on this occassion. For example, my friend got the chicken and waffles and she was almost finished with her meal before someone brought her syrup. Overall, you can't go wrong with Brenner's.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA Very Happy Easter!We spent a delightful Easter brunch there with excellent service and wonderful food. Afterward we took a stroll through the lovely grounds. A special day.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWill ReturnThis was our first time here, and we will certainly return. Service, food and view were excellent.

Gwen3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent RestaurantSo wonderful ,.... I will comeback ... Excellent food :)3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI absolutely love dining here!I absolutely love dining here! I have brought several guests on various occassions and it has always been a pleasant experience.
I think the hostesses dresses were somewhat unecessarily too short. The quality of the ambiance, service, food etc. doesn't need the appeal of micro mini skirtted hostesses.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the Distinctive dinningI had the Distinctive dinning deal. The Filet Mignon was very good. I didn’t read the menu close enough to realize it came with Cauliflower Puree. I just thought you were being cinchy on the Mashed potatoes. It wouldn’t hurt to have a bit more substantial side with the entrée.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service in the bar outsideThe service in the bar outside was terribly slow, but the waiter inside who served our dinner was excellent. The food was great too.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
