Server interrupted, server did not address ladies first to take orders or present food. We were seated upstairs in small room. The music coming from speakers was extreme loud.
Overall a disappointment on Valentines when it should have been special.

We’ve been coming since the 1970’s and the experience matched the expectation. We were introduced to several new dishes in the 1970’s and they continue to impress

We were kind of shoved in a corner at a 2-top, but after the room started filling up with businessmen in groups we were more than happy to have our little intimate table.

The courtboullion with black drum and Ponchatraine red fish were outstanding. Efficient and friendly service. Crime broule was delicious. But presentation as a thin layer on a plate unusual.

My husband and I are new to the area and celebrated an early Valentine's Day for dinner Saturday night. We were very early for our reservation, and they were able to go ahead and seat us within just a few minutes. Our server was fabulous, and everything was delicious! We had the fried green tomatoes, jumbo lump crab cakes, and the shrimp and grits. It was a very special evening, and we will definitely be back!

As soon as we drove in it was amazing we came in on time and was seated right away. Immediately The excellent service begin all the food was delicious

We only had one complaint The Google maps told us the destination was on our right after we passed. We were forced to get on the freeway all the way to Shepherd This was not your fault You need to call google and incorrect this. We have the same problem at our house All you need is to call and they will adjust it it may take a little while

Normally we enjoy coming however our waiter on this occassion wasnt the best. He appeared irritated that we didnt want dessert nor alcohol. The food was just okay but as i stated normally we enjoy ourselves and love the food. Maybe it was an off night.

Brennan's of Houston is excellent. It's a spacious and beautifully designed restaurant with friendly, attentive, and professional staff. The food is simply outstanding. We enjoyed the southern oxtails and dumplings, a delicious tasting trio of shrimp bisque, turtle soup, and gumbo, the gulf shrimp pontchartrain, and the hunter's honey roasted duck. Each dish was great! We also loved the buttery garlic bread and scrumptious complimentary pralines. I highly recommend Brennan's to celebrate any special occasion. You won't be disappointed!

I selected Brennan's as the location for the celebration of my 65th birthday. My husband and I had a wonderful experience. The food, especially the shrimp bisque and the Bananas Foster, was out of this world delicious.

The service was attentive but not oppressive. The server and his assistant struck the right balance there.

We appreciated being seated in a corner of the "C" room and having the nice yellow, wingback chairs. They were very comfortable and made us feel like we were in a private room.


Thank you so much for making my day so special.

I feel we weren’t taken seriously as a table. Our food was VERY slow to come out and we watched several people who came after us get their food and get quicker service all around than we did. I think it’s a good place, but for the price we paid juxtaposed with the experience of dining, it’s not worth quite that much, so we won’t be back any time soon.

The in-house musical quartet was nice and entertaining, though. We enjoyed them thoroughly.

It’s always special to go to Brennan’s, but poor service and mediocre food really disappointed us tonight. We had to ask the waitstaff to find our waiter/captain twice, and our food sat on trays near the table for quite some time before being served.
