Brasserie 19, located in Houston’s 77019 neighborhood, offers a modern amalgamation of French brasserie fare and well-known American influences. The menu utilizes the freshest seasonal ingredients in thoughtfully prepared dishes. Brasserie 19 boasts an expansive, carefully developed wine list dedicated to pricing just above retail – a philosophy pioneered by owners Charles Clark and Grant Cooper upon opening their first restaurant, Ibiza Food & Wine Bar. Brasserie 19's sophisticated yet unpretentious interiors are bathed in cool greys and whites, with antiqued wood and white marble used throughout. Grey leather banquettes and comfortable chairs are paired with white linen and butcher paper-covered tables create a casually elegant setting for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Brasserie 19 will serve lunch and dinner 7 days a week, as well as brunch on Sundays.

I have visited Brasserie 19 on my last two visits to Houston. The Ribeye is excellent. I would also recommend the deviled eggs topped with caviar! Will definitely be back again!

The last time I was here I ordered the exact same meal. It was a salad of crabmeat, lobster and shrimp on a bed of lettuce. It was fabulous. Today’s salad was very mediocre. The only thing I could distinguish was the shrimp. The crabmeat and lobster were totally shredded. No taste at all. Must have been canned. The green goddess dressing tasted more like green vinegar and oil. Somewhat bitter.

We were with other people and I didn’t say anything to the waiter. He was very nice and attentive. My husband ordered fish and chips..also mediocre.

For the price, I would say it definitely wasn’t worth it!

The appetizers were great. We had the oysters with spinach and the deviled eggs!! I got the filet but it was not my favorite. I think it was baked. The service was excellent.

Have been there many times and been happy. Saturday was not one of those times. I had reservations for 6:45 and did not get seated until 7:15. The fist was over cooked and dry. The green beans were cold when they came to the table. They sent out a new batch that was warmed but not flavorful and more uncooked than cooked.

Our waitress was great. Very attentive and she explained everything so we made sure we got stuff we loved. Delicious food. Really enjoyed it. I think I just expected a slightly more formal atmosphere. It is pretty casual. But it was still a great dining experience.

I love B19! Good food, good crowd, a true neighborhood “go to”. However, the server we had was one the worst in Houston and the poor service overshadowed what should have been an awesome New Years Day brunch.

My out of town friends were even offended. I will go back but will carefully choose my server.

Don’t let this review keep you away. B19 is still a gem with excellent food.

The braised short rib was excellent, nice portion, rich flavor, slightest hint hint of raisin for a light sweetness. Seared scallop was perfect, nice sear yet still very moist. a nice crunchy dozen oysters, generous portion on the double chop, very tender

My foie gras was a good-size portion and perfectly cooked. The escargot had a nice garlic to parsley ratio, but needed more butter. Also, the temperature was a bit tepid, not bubbling hot as if just out of the oven. The seafood salad was average, not exceptional.

This was our second time to visit. Both times were for our anniversaries. We love the seafood towers and there are some great wine values. The food is always spectacular. We do think the service is a little snobby. Both times we've been I felt like the servers weren't friendly, they are very good, just not very friendly. My wife and I are younger and maybe not as "done up" as the rest of the crowd, so I think that has a little to do with it, but the service is very good. We will be back.

Forget how good this place is! Can be expensive for a full meal with wine, but is a good value.

This time was spur of the moment brunch after church. Great range of choices for our meal. All well prepared.

Hostess was superbe. Service was attentive, but a little frantic.

Recommend for any occasion.

It was not crowded but there were a lot of noisy tables around us. Our waiter and the floor manager were attentive, specially after they got my wife’s order wrong - they quickly corrected it, struck it out if the check and offered after dinner drinks in ways of an apology. They were great but service has declined a bit since our last time here a couple of years ago. Food was not phenomenal, not bad ... but just not fantastic as our last experience.
