Wonderful meal. Felt safe during COVID. Can't wait to go again.
Brennan’s is always great and the staff is superb.
Our favorite restaurant in Houston. Even with the Covid19 restrictions we had wonderful food and fabulous service.
Consistently excellent always a wonderful experience
Outstanding food. Highly recommend the turtle soup, red snapper pontchatrain and bananas foster for dessert.
Great service by Manual and Ramón.
Great experience post their shutdown. Plenty of room to spread out. They are doing all they can cleaning wise to keep you safe.
This was the perfect spot to choose for our first meal since the stay home order was lifted. The service and food were amazing as always. My husband and I truly enjoyed our brunch date and celebrating his birthday!
Always love eating at Brennan's. It is a Houston classic.
Service was excellent, with the management and staff taking exceptional care to minimize Wuhan virus risks.
Awesome restaurant! One of our favorites!
We went to Brennan’s for our anniversary. It was very romantic. Loved the nice attire atmosphere. Food was absolutely amazing!! We ordered three desserts and took them home because it was too hard to decide! The staff worked hard to make our evening special! Great experience!
This was our first outing after COVID reopening. Brennan's is normally excellent, but the kitchen was not up to standard yet. Fish was tough, sauces uninspired, fried oysters were small and chewy. Desserts were great. I hope things improve as the kitchen ramps up.
We chose Brennan’s to celebrate my husband’s birthday and it was a wise decision. We were the second table to be seated which had a balloon centerpiece and beautiful music from the 50’s played on low volume that didn’t distract conversation. We had: PICKLED FRIED GREEN TOMATO RAVIGOTE Jumbo lump blue crab, green tomatoes, southern chow chow and charred lemon ravigote sauce and BRENNAN’S SEAFOOD GUMBO GF
Jazzmen rice and Chef’s blend of filé for starters; Mahi-mahi PONTCHARTRAIN Jumbo lump crab, J&J shrimp, crispy Louisiana oysters, parmesan mushroom rice and Brennan’s Creole butter and CRISPY SOFTSHELL CRAB
Sliced local tomatoes, baby arugula, cucumber rIbbons, sweet onions, pressed basil oil and aged balsamic for entree’s; and MOORHEAD’S BLUEBERRY COBBLER
Conroe Texas blueberries, white chocolate ganache with lemon curd ice cream and SOUTHERN PECAN PIE
Rio Grande pecans, dark chocolate & caramel crowned with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Everything was so delicious and beautifully presented. We felt transported back to New Orleans with the whole dining experience and with the music on low, we were able to share our favorite memories of vacations to Louisiana. Francisco and Melanie pampered us with hospitality and superior service along with all staff making us feel at home and welcomed. It was a lovely evening, thank you.
Brennan’s has never disappointed us. Always outstanding food and service!
Welcome back Brennan’s !
From the Pre dinner sazerac to the turtle soup, everything was delicious .
And pralines to go were safely wrapped and Ready for you upon departure .
Always a first class experience with a one of a kind menu. It makes you feel
like you’re in NOLA. Ask for a table with high back chairs for the ultimate intimate dining experience.
Thanks for a good experience and good food. Would recommend and will return.
Food was good...Turtle soup awesome. Hubby said his beef tips needed more season. Not sure why we were seated in the side dining room versus the big fancier main room that we like a lot better. We were dressed formally.
Brennan’s of Houston was as expected. They sport an enormous wine list, a plentiful bar, and a menu that is fish, beef, and veggie stacked with a Louisiana flare. The staff was good, the food was great, and the location was easy to get to. Would eat there again when in Houston.
Birthday night was terrific
It was my daughter’s 14 th birthday and they made her feel like”The belle of the ball”!
Wonderful! A true culinary experience.
Great way to celebrate a birthday!!
Always one of the best dining experience in Houston. Everything was fantastic.
All four seafood dishes ordered by our party were delicious, particularly the Gulf fish Pontchartrain. Poached pear salad starter was made available although not on the menu. All soups get high marks. At the end, an outstanding cup of coffee! Our table was near a busy hallway and service area, thus a lot of hustle and bustle to contend with.
Brennan’s offers great food and outstanding service in a warm inviting atmosphere.
We go every time when visiting Houston. Always a great experience and meal!
Brennan’s is one of Houston’s finest restaurants. The historic building, the interior design, the cuisine and the service are all without equal. Brennan’s always exceeds our expectations.
Excellent food and service! Very disappointed Brennan’s high standards of excellence have been relaxed to allow patrons wearing shorts, sneakers and t-shirts, as there was at two different tables near us today! Brennan’s is less than it used to be!
Great food and service, as always!
Exceptional quality and impeccable service keep us coming back! I love going to eat knowing Brennan's will exceed my expectations. The courteous staff were helpful and attentive to our elementary age children (this is not always the case in some high-end restaurants) and made them feel welcome with pre-meal strawberries and cream . Brennan's provided unsurpassed help in planning my wife's recent birthday dinner with family, even arranging the flowers for the table. I always recommend Brennan's of Houston for an unsurpassed dining experience.
All good apart from our table stuck in the corner nearest the door.
Atmosphere was festive. Service was great. Food is always good. Brennan’s is always a good choice
Brennan's is one of my favorite restaurants in Houston but our last experience fell short of their normal excellence.
The soup trio (1-1-1) is usually a highlight but this time the turtle soup was tasteless and the gumbo was so loaded with rice there was no room for anything else.
I was really excited for the Creole Spiced Ribeye but was disappointed again. I asked for it to be cooked Medium Rare +. The inside of the steak was leaning more towards medium well and the outside was burned and charred. I appreciate a good sear, but this was too far. The most disappointing part was the cut of meat. For $61 I expect a ribeye to just melt due to the wonderful marbling. This piece of meat was extremely tough and sinewy. Not at all pleasant to eat.
The other bothersome issue was the very rude waiter who constantly interrupted our conversation to get his job done. We were in no hurry and wanted to socialize over our drinks before ordering. The constant interruptions were incredibly off-putting and really put a damper on the evening.
I have had wonderful dinners at Brennan's and do hope this was just an anomaly as I would hate to take Brennan's out of our rotation. The other diners' dishes ranged from OK to really good. The Bananas Foster was fantastic as usual. We will be back, but it will be a while before we return.
perfect birthday celebration location
Always a pleasure.
Wonderful dining and everything tasted delicious!
Food and service is first class. Sunday brunch was very enjoyable and wandering jazz group and ambience
Our servers were great the food was not that good and the people at the table next us were in constant chatter with several wait staff and the head chef so much so that I did not enjoy my dinner with my husband. Will not go again. The steak which was touted as aged ribeye cost too much and was tough. The knife given to cut it did not do the trick. When I sent them a similar review they did not even acknowledge my response. Poor taste
The food and service were outstanding. We were celebrating Valentine's Day at 2 PM. This was special. I also appreciated that the menu was the typical menu. We did not feel the prices were escalated for Valentine's Day.
