The server was not very attentive to our party of four. We love going to Brennan’s but our recent visit was disappointing. The hostess was not very receptive to us either. Our friends luncheon was not enjoyable. Sorry.

We sat at the bar today for a great Sunday brunch. Our
bartenders/servers, Willem and Miguel Wh
Were the best. They in the hardest job not only do they have to make drinks for everybody in the Restaurant they make drinks for body in the bar and take quarters and serve the food for everybody in the bar area. They were awesome. The brunch menu is tremendous. Lots to choose from for a very reasonable price. The eggs Benedict are great the soups were great the egg dish was great the bloody marys and the mos's were tremendous. I guess I go on and on and on and on and on but I'll just say it was a fabulous afternoon at Brennan's

Table for 4 people right in the doorway of small dining area across from kitchen door.....high traffic area with lots of noice. Our guest chair was continually bumped into by wait staff bringing in other parties and serving food. Brennan’s has always been a family favorite however, it has moved down the list of favorite restaurants after this experience. Really surprised because the main dining area was not that busy.

We had a "on-line" reservation for lunch and we mentioned "Terms of Endearment" room. The hostess arranged for the room to be ready and invited us to go ahead and use even though no one else was being seated in there. We had the room ourselves and a great view of the patio area. The staff turned on the room's music shortly after we were seated.

The food was outstanding as always and the meal a very pleasant event . Our server out did himself on the presentation of the entree salad and our favorite desert - petite beignets. (Don't forget the lunch Martinis for a quarter) .

Can't wait for our next visit!

I do think it’s funny that even during lunch service khaki shorts and leather shoes are not allowed—I get during dinner, but mid week lunch, let’s get with the times! There were gentlemen there wearing dirty denim jeans and tennis shoes.

We were celebrating our anniversary. Our waitress was nice but was not very attentive. She had a 10 top table next to us so not sure if that had something to do with it. The service was very slow. Our food was not hot. We sent one of the entrees back to the kitchen. Even though my dish was barely warm it was excellent and I did not send it back. The wine sommelier was very nice and extremely knowledgeable. The desserts were delicious. We were disappointed with the service but love this restaurant. I think this was a one off event.

From the time we walked into the foyer an greeted by a wonderful hostess, to arriving at the table to find an anniversary card along with special yellow ribbon. I was in disbelief to the outstanding way we were treated. Wonderful service, attention to detail, wonderful recommendations on a fantastic wine, to the best broiled oysters one could ask for. This brunch is the best I have had in Houston in 20 years. The jazz ensemble is truly amazing along with a great singer. Not only was the service outstanding, we were able to talk to the manager who in return invited us to view and tour the kitchen. Another breath-talking adventure walking through and seeing everyone working at different station not knowing that guest were watching. Smiles, hand shakes to talking with 2 chefs made this the top of a perfect brunch. Thanks Brennan's, along with the entire staff for making this day really special. We plan on returning with friends and family very soon and to make this a place to visit often.

Took a dear friend for her birthday lunch. Our waiter made her feel like a princess. Food impeccable as always, but it's the little extras that make the experience. She uses a walker and they were very helpful as we came and went. Just the perfect lunch place for quiet chats. Great for business lunches too.

Great food, beautiful venue..... service was not the greatest, we expected better service from a restaurant of this caliber and price. Our waiter, Greg, was not rude but not very timely, it took him over 5 min to come to our table, he seemed to be in a hurry.We observed him at other tables and noticed he was rushy with them also. The hostess was nice but her attire was not at all classy for a place of this caliber. They post a dress code online but do not seem to enforce it for the hostess. Again... good food , great place just work with your staff so that customers can have a greater experience.
