Brennan's of Houston Ratings and Reviews
Service was terrible. For the price you pay, you should't feel rushed. Our waiter was clearly over his head and did not make for a pleasant experience. Brennans is a fantastic restaurant, however, the service was poor. Food was great.. experience was terrible.
Overall an elegant evening. I hadn't been in awhile and wanted somewhere that I could talk without shouting. Not much had changed with the same standards on the menu. service was attentive and prompt. Nice wine selections and the Somm was knowledgeable. The beef rib was nice and smoky, the ponchetrain just ok. Shrimp roumelade fair. Overall I think the food just seemed outdated - it wasn't full on a Saturday I think they do brunch better
We found the restaurant to be very old school. This we expected. Overall food was just Ok. nothing special. The turtle soup was good. Wedge salad was very average. Fried green tomatoes were tasteless and while there was a fair amount of crabmeat, it was small and shredded. Certainly not lump crab meat. The redfish courtbouillon was Ok but the sauce was very thin and the fish had a distinctive "fishy" tasting. The night was our anniversary. This event got us an ordered dessert (which we paid for ) with a Happy Anniversary script. Hostess was indifferent in our reception and our departure. Think this is our last visit, Too many better choices in Houston.
I was entertaining out-of-town clients and chose the restaurant for the historic character and it is a beautiful fine dining experience. So I had high expectation and was a little disappointed. Service was fine, but our table was rushed. Our entrees sat on the server's tray for about 10 minutes while we finished our first course. Major mistake. Other tables were dining at a more reasonable pace. The menu has only 2 fish dishes and both were breaded, I expected more options.
We ate dinner at Brennan's on Sunday January 7th and it was delicious! I can't recall our servers name (older gentleman with a great sense of humour) and Troy.
The Autumn Pear cocktail was the best i've ever had and our meals were outstanding. Great service and amazing meal! No complaints!
As always, Brennans sets the standard for food, wine and service. Great wine list with some exceptional wines and an excellent sommelier staff who uncover the hidden gems. And Marcelino is the best server in Texas. I always feel at home here, and the food is exceptional.
Not up to par for Brennan's, service was extremely slow and inattentive. Drink orders were mixed up, they were out of one of the Main entrees after waiter raved about it. We ended up getting the Dessert that came with one of the 3 course meals to go because we were so tired of waiting.
Have been coming here for over 45 years - Bldg is beautiful and menu is great. Service has declined with new generation of staff and sommelier and wine availability disappointing - settled for 4th choice. Seafood special - redfish with crab, shrimp, fried oysters was good except for oysters - cold, and diesely - terrible actually. Bananas Foster perfect and overall had a delightful 49th anniversary evening.
We enjoy Brennan's and go there regularly - so, we'll chalk this visit up as an aberration from normal.
The service was, at best, fair. While the waiter was attentive, he did not get two of the appetizer and two of the main course orders correct. We had to ask for utensils on two occasions and for small plates on another to eat one of the dessert items.
The food was subpar. The asparagus was overcooked and poorly presented.
We'll go bac, but it won't be as frequently.
Brennan’s usually has great professional service. On Tuesday this was not the case. Our waiters were inattentive, surly and rude. I have dined at Brennan’s on numerous occasions since the restaurant opened and I have never experienced this. Because we were in the holiday spirit we gave the usual gratuity which was not deserved. Upon leaving I asked one of our waiters to please smile. He did! Upon leaving there were others waiters standing in a line on our way out with what we perceive as “tip buckets”. We did not respond.
We went to Brennan's at the specific desire of the person who was celebrating her birthday. The birthday was mentioned on the reservation, and the waitress even noted it; however, there was no special birthday commemoration at all. Very disappointing, because this was a very pricey lunch!
Our annual Christmas Brunch at Brennan’s was wonderful as usual. Love eating here with family, and not having to cook a big dinner myself! Food is always great and the brunch menu is great value. Had a really good glass of Pinot noir from the Oregon Willamette Valley with my wedge salad and pecan crusted redfish.
My food was horrible! I been to Brennan’s many times, but that’s visit was a disaster. Server didn’t speak English so we ordered via the wine steward. Our waiter was more interested in something else. I’m sure it was “just a bad” night but I will think twice before coming again. That is sad.
