Everything was exceptional except for the noise level. The tables are some what close together so there isn’t much privacy, and you can most definitely hear the neighbors. Add some alcohol in the mix and we witnessed a girl giving her significant other an ultimatum with some choice words, and we could also hear a table of guys (really, they were bro’s being bro’s) from the other side of the room. If you can overlook the noise level, you’ll absolutely love the food!!

The restaurant was busy but not packed. We sat down and ordered all of our food- appetizer, salads and main course. The appetizers came out in a reasonable amount of time but the salads took over an hour. All in, over 3 hours to eat!

Tom's Bacon is the best thing I have ever had in my life. Thick cut bacon topped with blue cheese and maple syrup. Had the aged ribeye and it was one of the best ones yet. A wonderful dinner with the wife.

I was beyond disappointed tonight. I have been looking forward to a B&B experience and was let down and quite embarrassed since i brought along my entire extended family. 10 of us sat for over 2 hours when the restaurant was not busy-we we’re the third table occupied at 5pm. My sole meunière was served cold and full of bones. All sides arrived less than warm and flavorless. The chateaubriand for two had zero marbling, thus zero flavor. The Texas waygu filet and ribeye were so tough and bland we were shocked.

obviously we were so frustrated and unimpressed. we will not be back and won’t be recommending b&b to anyone.

This was my first time having brunch here and it did not disappoint! We were a party of 4, all had something different, and all loved what we got. I got the hash & it was AMAZING. Took home half the portion was so large. Definitely coming back.

This steak house is a pricey but you know going into it. At our table we had 2 out of 3 steaks that were delicious. The bone in Ribeye was a bit on the tough side. The appetizers crab cakes and shrimp great. The dessert was fabulous. :-)

It would be a disservice not to speak up and provide constructive feedback. Considering the average steak is $48 and up, the amount of money spent is substantial , dumping a luke warm baked potato (UN cut) with all the fixings to put together yourself just doesn't sit right. It should be served hot, prepared and ready to go, I can prepare my own bake potato at home. Your wedge salad needs work, the dressing and tomatoes had no flavor. The bread is not worth mentioning. The wine list needs more middle range prices $80-$140 range. nothing really worth spending the money on there. we did enjoy a nice bottle, but we had to spend quite a bit more to get anything worth drinking.

It was a nice evening, loved the building.

Our server was Vic and he went above and beyond to take care of us and make sure we had a fabulous experience. The steaks were perfectly cooked and cut table side for the whole table to share, the side were also amazing I recommend the creamed spinach and corn soufflé and as for appetizers I totally recommend Chef Tommy’s bacon and the Carpet Baggers!!! Overall we had an amazing experience!!! We will definitely be back!!

The wagyu filet was excellent along with creamed spinach which was also very good. My husband got the BB Butter steak which was amazing. The bacon and blue cheese appetizer was to die for. Great wine selections. I've been to B&B a couple other times and loved the service. This time was so so. It was my husband's first time and it would have been nice if there was more enthusiasm about the different cuts of beef and what makes them so good. In spite of that, we'll be back.

We had a wonderful experience. The food — from delicious shrimp/bacon and brie appetizers through veal and beef entrees to dessert — was beautiful, creative, well-prepared, and very tasty. The service was truly outstanding (thank you Matthew and Christina!) — pleasant, prompt, professional, and helpful. Be prepared to carry out some food — the entree portions are large. Our only critique: to our taste, the veal chop parmigiana was a bit too spicy — other Texans might like it, but we thought it "bit" a bit too much. Obviously not an inexpensive restaurant, but an outstanding place for a special occasion dinner. We very much look forward to our next visit — there are more great-sounding things on the menu we want to try!

Great service by Christian! This was an incredibly pleasant brunch experience with a calmer more refined atmosphere than I am used to at some of the more main stream brunch establishments. Will definitely be recommending this to others
