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.

I brought a friend from Ireland who had never visited Brasserie 19. He absolutely loved it. A lot to do with Ella & Jose! They are great hostess and host!
We are COPPA OSTERIA transplants and will be back very soon!

Fabulous waiter, great recommendations. Caesar salad could have had a bit more dressing- felt like a plain plate of lettuce!

I wanted to enjoy Brasserie but the service was as terrible and the food was lack luster. We waited too long for water, bread drinks....just service!!! At those prices I expect better

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!

The food was amazing! The outside dining area was packed but not inside. I think our server was having a bad day because she wasn’t very kind. But overall, it was good!

My husband and I eat at this restaurant at least once a month maybe twice. Every time the food is just outstanding The service is always impeccable as well the waiters take a lot of care to make sure that you’re happy and that your service is fast. And the people watching and Sunday is never boring. The wine menu is always the biggest draw for me as well lots of nice French wines at price points that don’t gouge. the customer. Loyal fan. Always.

I was shocked by the service, or lack of. That’s not normal. It took a long time to even be served water and we had to ask for silver and napkins. Everything beyond that was late too. When my mom asked for a napkin the waiter made a rude remark. It was shocking. We tipped 20% because waiters need that but he should have gotten 5%. The food wasn’t up to par either. My mom is in her 70’s so a night out is rare these days, I like it to be a good experience for her.

Food and drink are typically solid here, but service can be hit or miss. It was a semi miss on this visit. It took a long while (almost 10 minutes) for anyone to greet us at our table despite the dining room having far less tables than it did pre COVID. Then when we were greeted, it was half hearted, not very friendly or verbose and seemed to be by an assistant manager, indicating that a lot of time had passed before he came to bring us menus. When the server finally arrived, he looked as if he wasn't sure if he should even approach us before simply asking "what did you want to drink?" After our considerable drink order, I think he warmed up, but the damage was done to me. We are always cordial when we go out considering our food and drink is being prepared out of our presence, but most servers dont understand that there are a lot of places to dine in this city and patrons look for simple hospitality and enthusiasm when visiting any establishment. That lacked at our latest trip to "19".

Everything was fabulous. At first we were being shown to a table in the sun but were accommodated to another in the shade. The service was efficient and the food was great as usual. This was the first time that our payment was taken at the table (like Mexico City) and that was even better. I was happy to see business was good.

Food was Ok. Mussels needed more broth. Small hen was dry as well and casserole used to serve it looked half empty. Lemon pound cake was dry and not enough crème on the plate. Looks like chef was given instructions to cut costs. Service by Alexander was great. Ambiance was weak due to pandemic, although other restaurants in the area are full and bustling with all their tables occupied.

Good wine list and charcuterie / cheese board.
Fairly efficient service.
The terrace could use a better set up, and the interior is a bit too noisy.

Visiting Houston from Chicago. Great food and great service. We sat outside to eat due to Covid 19. Red ants were present outside that gave us a couple of bites. Other than that it was a great experience.

Amazing service by Miriam. Fantastic food and ambiance. You can’t go wrong, and their Houston Restaurant Weeks menu made it all the more worth it - even though we also ordered off the main menu.
