I came here with my boyfriend for a late Valentines dinner and it was amazing. Everything in the menu looked delicious. I wanted a mix of two dishes on the menu and the chef was happy to whip it up for me. The scenery in the restaurant is so beautiful and our waiter gave us a tour after we finished our food. I loved it definitely see myself coming back!

I have always turned to Brennan’s for a lovely place to have brunch. The addition of a Jazz Brunch with Tianna Hall, David Craig and other musicians minstrelling throughout the restaurant makes this brunch a slice of heaven. Two Thumbs up to an already lovely atmosphere.

On recent visits food quality and preparation has been on the decline. This visit, wife' brunch was not as ordered and had to be sent back. My brunch also was not as ordered but I decided not to send back. Eggs improperly cooked and the English Muffin could not be cut with an ax much less the knife provided.

Brennan's is the closest thing to Commander's Palace here in Houston. They have never disappointed us whether it's the turtle soup or the Eggs Benedict the food is always prepared perfectly. The service is beyond reproach as it has been our experience at any Brennan's family establishment.

The food was excellent as usual!! The wait staff are the best they are right checking on you constantly. We were very disappointed in one thing. It was our 24th anniversary and we did not receive a complimentary plate with chocolate writing wishing us happy anniversary with strawberries or raspberries. This is one of the special things that Brennan's has done for us on three of our other anniversary's very disappointing. Our waiter did get us some pralines, but the plate with chocolate writing was just special.

As usual, food was fantastic. Unfortunately, the service was suprisingly very subpar. Older gentleman with gray hair and accent on floor one. Never smiled, very unpersonal and never ever checked on us or asked how things were. Only service we got was from the young lady filling tea glasses. As good as food is here it will be awhile before we come back.

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.

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

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!
