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 6 days a week, as well as brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

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.

New Management is ruining this wonderful restaurant. Samantha Dignazio (new GM) has over hired new staff to the point our beloved staff who knows us, our orders and what we like to drink are leaving because their money is being cut in half. The atmosphere is now more fast paced with workers everywhere. The ambiance is no longer what it has been known and loved for.

Unlike a lot of restaurants since the beginning of Covid, Brasserie 19 has stepped up their game... the impressive quality/taste of their food, the temperature at which it is served (piping hot) & the service level is outstanding.

The newly expanded patio is fantastic. Felt very safe! The food was very good. We had the octopus, Caesar salad, tuna tar tar, and Dover sole. The new tuna tar tar is incredible. The Dover Sole was good but not as good as the old Wednesday special. We told them that and they said next time to just ask for that presentation and they will happily comply.... look forward to going again!
