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-covered tables, creating a casually elegant setting for lunch, dinner or weekend brunch. Brasserie 19 will serve lunch and dinner 7 days a week, as well as brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

This is one of our favourite places. The food and service are consistently good. The ambience is fantastic. It’s the place to be! Love the Trout Almondine. Have it with Brussel sprouts instead of the green beans. They are delicious.

It was great—the deviled eggs, frisée salad, beef bourgignon, martinis and sparkling wine selection—all fantastic. Great service, too

Rod our waiter was truly outstanding and made the experience. If you love Far Niente Chardonnay you won't pay more for it here than at the grocery store. Food was excellent.

We ordered our seafood platter and discovered the crab claws were missing. The waiter had a manager come over to explain they were not available. He offered us an appetizer of crab cakes in their place. We appreciated that offer although it was frustrating that our server was not made aware of this situation. He was very nice and apologetic about it. The tartare was not as good as it used to be so please bring back the old version!

The food was amazing but our server, although polite, acted as though he did not want to be there. I think he was just having an off day but it really effected our experience. This is one of my family’s favorite restaurants and we were a little disappointed with our server.

Food was wonderful as usual. The disappointment was the service was less attentive than normal, and there was no social distancing in effect on the outside patio. The table next to us was less than 2 ft away, and no one wore masks.

If it were not for the constant attendance of the wait staff that refilled waters, my ratings would be lower. The most attentive the server was to my partner and I was when he was filling out the check. The bread was brought late, she was more attentivr to other tables, and seemed to forget that we were her customers at all. It was not at all what either of us expected for the money spent.
The steak tartare was excellent, but the other dish was soaked in balsamic which made it almost inedible. There was no opportunity to address this however, as we were not checked on more than once after the food arrived.

excellent food, great martini. service very good. Outside dining is wonderful but beware of very loud diners. It's VERY loud. Maybe the Sunday night crowd is different then the rest of the week, but keep that in mind.

Our appetizer was delayed and as a result the rest of our food came out first causing us to send the salad and main course back while we waited for the appetizer. This in turn threw the entire order off causing everything to be delayed. The waiter was nice but the experience was frustrating. The food itself was fantastic. Will try again. Oysters were amazing and fresh.

We arrived for our reservation and we were seated after we were seated no one came to check on us. There were a two tables that were seated after us and they seem to get helped as soon as they were seated. I don't understand if it was our waitress thatvdud not want to take care of us. But I have worked at a restaurant and you can always help someone when not busy. We decided to leave which as we got up our table got cleared I find it very interesting I would if liked the customer service was better

Fantastic food and great service from George. Highly recommend. The managers on staff were all over the place overseeing that everything was perfect. And our waiter George was on top of it. Had the special Snapper and Trout Almondine. Fantastic!

Slightly disappointed in the cheese and charcuterie board. There was only two cheeses on the bars and the pieces were so small. For the price, I would’ve expected a bit more cheese or larger portions if just two cheeses. The service was good.

I have no complaints with Brasserie 19 but it used to be that I didn't have to ask ANY restaurant to provide me with a spoon or sugar. now I have to ask every restaurant for this. does this have something to do with the TRA or something else?

I love this restaurant because of the excellent food, wine list and service. Our waiter, Simon, couldn't have been more helpful and attentive and we enjoyed visiting with him. I appreciate the safety precautions the restaurant has taken in light of COVID and we feel safe eating here. Highly recommend to our friends for any occasion.

Oysters and trout were fresh and service was solid. The ambiance isn’t bad, but I always leave feeling like it’s a litter drab in there with the dingy grey carpet. Time for a flooring upgrade.

Our first time here and it was beyond our expectations. The food and drinks were all made to perfection. The environment was beautiful and relaxing. Our server was Darcy and he took very good care of us. We went for brunch and ended up staying pretty much all day because we were having such a good time. Definitely a new go to place for us.

Brasserie 19 never disappoints and this evening everything we consumed was excellent. The Indian Point oysters were fresh, firm and sweet. They have updated the Caesar salad by adding spinach to the Romaine lettuce and it worked. The anchovies were delicious and could have stood on their own. Our main course, the Cornish Game hen and Grilled Salmon were perfectly done. The Veuve Clicquot Rose champagne and Burgundy paired beautifully with the dishes.

Haven't been to Brasserie 19 for couple of years but previously visited at least once per month. The usual dishes changed (for example, mussels used to be amazing), quality of several dishes we tried is below expected, was disappointed. Ambience is nice but starting to look worn out.
