Staff did not inform us until we arrived they could not accommodate our outside table reservation due to a wedding party. Steaks were tough and under seasoned. Waiter did not ask us how our steaks were. We left to have dessert at our favorite steakhouse in Houston (Pappas).

I made the reservation for my son and his friend who were each celebrating their 17th birthday and wanted a nice steak experience. That's all I said when I put a note in the OpenTable reservation. B&B went above and beyond in providing the kids with a great experience! They took them down to the aging rooms, explained the process, etc. The food was delicious, the server attentive and all in a great atmosphere. They both said it was the best Birthday they've ever had. Thank you so much B&B for giving them such a fun experience and further inspiring their interests!

Great food and service! Sitting in a semicircular booth was awkward for the ladies in our party and the noise level made conversation slightly challenging. Still, one of my very favorite restaurants in Houston.

Appetizers & drinks were good, wait staff was excellent. Table location kind of pinned us in center of dinning room so louder than expected w 6 tables close by. Main meal (40oz dry aged porterhouse, mushroom and garlic mashed potatoes) was “ok” for a 110$+ Steak. Steak was cooked perfect but was highly under-seasoned. Center of meat was very bland. Mashed potatoes were very liquidy almost runny and mushrooms were dry/overcooked and almost not edible. Asparagus and carrot garnished were tough and fibrous. All in all, for a $300 dinner, I wasn’t impressed and we likely wouldn’t return. I expected more from the reviews/price point. Can get more flavor and better value elsewhere. Was still nice night out, but the steak we came for was least appealing part.

4 out of 5 stars...Sound bounce in the downstairs room makes for difficult conversation at brunch. The space could stand a whole lot more soft surfaces for sure. That said, the food was spectacular(except dessert). Brunch surf and turf quesadillas and the cheesesteak sandwich were both outstanding. Service was perhaps a little too attentive, but had this been a day when we were drinking lots of adult beverages needing timely refills, the service would be spot on. Creme Brûlée arrived straight out of the fridge and while nothing wrong with it, the dessert was more like vanilla Jello pudding with a torched sugar top. Not bad, not good, not anything up to the standards the rest of the food here would lead one to expect. The restrooms vestibule reeked of chemical, Lysol? Bleach? Not sure but it triggered an asthma attack. Restroom proper was clean and fragrance free, thankfully. Valet was prompt! Also, FYI, they employ the awkward payment method where the waiter stands by the table waiting for one to finish with the card machine. This is not progress, people! Overall, we like this place because the entrees and apps are outstanding. Other areas could use some tweaking...

I was really looking forward to trying their dry aged steak but we left a little disappointed. Both steaks were ordered medium and came out very rare. Had to be sent back, even the waiter noticed something wasnt right. That being said the service was very good and the managers made it as right as they could. Was just really hoping to be blown away but it kind of ruined the "experience" per say. The sides were decent. Didn't realize the mac and cheese salad mushrooms in it ( didn't say it on the menu). Crab cake was good. Bacon was ok too.

The building was not well insulated and it was very cold last night. Had to sit by a warmer, and for a while the warmer had stopped working.

I had a reservation on the 7th and showed up slightly earlier than expected. It wasn’t an issue, they took us to a table even though we were almost a whole hour early! We sat and were greeted immediately. Our waitress (Harmony) came right over and introduced herself, she also gave suggestions based on what we liked drink wise. We ordered drinks He had a beer, I had a Haymaker, and the Calamari appetizer. My drink was perfect. Bread and butter was brought to us while we waited. It wasn’t long before our appetizer came and it was delicious. Harmony came by and checked on us, very polite and knowledgeable of the menu. She spoke of specials and told us the difference between the types of steaks. We placed our order, me the prime rib, him the Texas Wagyu Ribeye both ordered medium rare. For the sides we had creamed spinach and corn soufflé. When the food came out, it was BEAUTIFUL in presentation and Harmony was standing with a smile ready to serve up the sides. Our meals came out cooked exactly how we ordered and the sides were soooooo good! It was one of the best meals we have had in a very long time. Harmony was a great gal that kept us informed, entertained, and happy, we couldn’t have asked for a better meal, or service. The atmosphere was nice and even though it got a tad loud it wasn’t overbearing. We ordered the flaming baked Alaska for dessert and it did not disappoint. Overall, this was an AMAZING place to experience and we will return, ask for Harmony, and be happy to try something else. Thank you for a great evening with my date! We can’t wait to come back and experience it all again. Well worth the $.

This was my second visit. I was disappointed. Both of our steaks were overcooked and not up to par in quality. Service was excellent. Soup was excellent. Sides were average.

I love this restaurant and would normally only have great things to say. Unfortunately, on this occasion we had a terrible waiter. He was very smug and full of himself. It was almost comical.

Took my wife for our anniversary. From valet ser ice to servers, everything was perfect. Were wished Happy Anniversary from staff. Food was Awesome! Even the desert plate had Happy Anniversary written in Chocolate. I didn't even ask for that. Nice Surprise! I am awful with names so I couldn't tell you the team that waited on us but they went above and beyond! Will definitely recommend to friends and family and will Definitely be back!

I had the opportunity to handle on-site management for a corporate group here a few months ago but I was to busy working to eat. Came back on my own with a lunch buddy and savored the experience. Bacon, bacon and more bacon with oysters and bleu cheese, on burgers and in the brussel sprouts. The gooey strawberry cake is the die for! OMG, after feasting on the succulent corned beef reuben and tasting everything else, I had to take nap. Can't wait to go back!

Business dinner. Food was sub par. Server didn’t seem interested at all. Sent steak back. Super rare, ordered medium.
Just not worth the time and money. Better steak places in Houston.

Great food and incredible service on this particular visit. Waiter knew the menu very well and guided our selections perfectly. Try the Berry Butter Cake dessert....like a seriously souped up Twinky.
