It was wonderful. You can't put a price on that kind of peaceful environment. Food and service were all off the charts. Our server was knowledgable and attentive. We specifically were drawn to Dos Brisas because the food was organic, and were not disappointed.

We are fans of Relais & Châteaux and have known about Dos Brisas for sometime but just tried it out for the first time. We were three people for a late lunch on Friday to kick off the weekend. In every way, it was the highlight of the weekend and the best thing we’ve done so far this year!
As expected, the food was superb.... eclipsed only by over the top service and genuinely wonderful people. Standouts were Ashley and the Som, Heath. The experience lasted a full three hours and we left certain that we had made new friends. Our vow is to return once a month.
Can hardly wait!

Amazing food! Definitely worthy of its 5 stars. Our service was a little below par. There were excessive delays between courses and a couple of missed orders. Most likely because the restaurant was filled and it was the Valentine’s Day dinner. We will definitely be back, although not on a national holiday.

Inconsistent wine list. Not sure if the sommelier was there during lunch but the advice was poor. Confusion as to the wage beef - although the fact that my wife ordered the same entree made things more difficult. Service generally not at the level experienced in the past. Again, may have been due to a late lunch reservation and not dinner. Also notable was the absence of any non sweet rose bubbly by the glass.

This gem outside Brenham is all we could ask for in service, ambience, presentation and food quality. Only thing I will change before next visit is to request a vegan entree. Thanks to all the staff who made our visit memorable.

Absolute greatest restaurant experience of my life. We went for our 7 year anniversary, and while it is pricey, it was absolutely worth every penny. We enjoyed it SO much. The wait staff, the waiter and bartender in particular, were so knowledgeable about the food and preparation, as well as farming techniques, that it truly elevated the experience and made us appreciate it so much more. The food was so creative, and layered with amazing spices and flavors- each course really delighted us. There was an amuse bouchée that was phenom, as well as 5 courses, plus a small assortment of desserts for the 7th tasting. It was truly incredible, and we will keep this on our radar for future special occasions! Go- you won’t regret it!

The staff was one of the best if not the best we have encountered. Being a minority, I have been hesitant to go to fine dining often because I feel treated as if I am not good enough. Though the rest of the clientele was all white, we did not feel out of place. Thank you for that
The menu was quite varied and each dish was beautifully arranged and very well prepared. I had the pate for the first course. It is slightly too salty for me but I tend to be supersensitive to salt so my guess is it would have been right for most people. The liver mousse was perfect accompaniment.
Second was the foie gras. Well cooked. The persimmons added a great contrast in texture
The main course of venison was amazing. It came from a nearby ranch. The smokiness and the morel aroma were definitely different. The venison almost melt in the mouth.
I had wine pairing and the sommelier really knew how to accentuate the flavors.

We had a lovely lunch at inn on dos Brisos. The first course of a seasonal salad and prosciutto and melon were truly excellent. We also tried the fish and the beef as well as the chocolate dessert. All exceeded our expectations. The service was very attentive and helpful. It was worth the drive from Houston to come have a splurge lunch here!

Had a great time for a wedding anniversary meal at Dos Brisas.
The food was great and sophisticated. A lot of attention in the cooking with quality products and the right amount of seasoning to bring out the food's flavors without deconstructing it. This is rare in american restaurants. I only put 4 stars because i felt the sides were too few and not as well done as the dish.
Amazing lava cake for desert.
Dining room is cosy but nothing special in the decoration or flare of teh place.
Service was good.
Had a great dining dining experience overall.

I was really looking forward to expierencing the Inn at Dos Brisas but unfortunately it fell short from my expectations. We were over charged for drinks and did not appreciate a large party dinning fee that was never mentioned.

Dear ImaD, Thank you for your review, I have retrieved your check from our secure archives. I see some beverages were consumed before dinner on the pool deck & lounge. A large group fee is added, as your reservation grew on arrival the computer calculated the total guest present & it inadvertently automatically added the fee. I would be delighted to have the opportunity to correct this with you. If you could email me or call I would be happy to discuss this with you and mail a check to you.

Outstanding restaurant! Everyone was most gracious and accommodating from the moment we entered the restaurant. We especially enjoyed our bartender, Heath and our waitress, Angela...both of whom went out of their way to make us feel very special. And the food...just incredible!...and the wonderful chef, Zach took the time to come by our table to personally greet us.
