Food was underwhelming. Went for HRW and was very disappointed with the food. Nothing mermorable. Best part was the atmosphere, which was very pleasant.

Took advantage of the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu for brunch and were not disappointed. Excellent start with Snappin' Turtle Soup and Boudin Scotch Egg - both were outstanding. Egg Benedict was spot-on perfect and the Crispy Salmon was incredible. Rounded out the meal with Bananas Foster prepared tableside. Already planning a return trip!

We went to Brennan’s last night after a friend of mine recommending it to me for months. I was expecting a wonderful experience, from beginning to end, but unfortunately that was not the case. We sat down for our reservation and it took them 15 minutes just to bring the menus. An hour into our reservation we still had an incomplete table setting, no bread, the drinks we had ordered 45 minutes prior still hadn’t arrived, and our waiter had not come for us to place our order. When we told him about all this, his response was “so do you want me to get your drinks or do you want me to take your order or should I get the manager?” We should have left then and there, his behavior towards us was unacceptable. I would leave 0 stars for service if possible.
The food was fine, but you don’t need to spend $100 on dinner to be insulted.

Utterly perfect from the moment we walked in. Service warm, familiar, caring, and over the top professional. Gorgeous environment. Romantic, beautiful, and inviting. The food was out of this world - this years restaurant week menu was full of our favorites. Our little ones noshed on gumbo and andouille Mac and cheese and every bite, every drop was unforgettable. The recognition of the loss of my dad, who had joined us at every HRW meal, was acknowledged so lovingly. Thank you.

Very disappointing. 2 of us had the same dish when was very salty. We had to return it. My guest decided not to reorder and had desert instead. I reordered. My reorder was way over salted. The waitress had no people skills. The dealers were fine all in all a very disappointing lunch.

We went for the restaurant week. Turtle soup was very good. The red fish cake was delicious. We added side order of oysters, on the menu says the order comes with 4 oysters, the dish came out with only 3 oysters. We did not complain, but want to let management know to correct the menu if needed.

The staff was great and the drinks were very good like always. I wasn’t as pleased with our meals as I wish I could have been. By friend eggs st. Charles were way over cooked. My meal was Luke warm when it arrived. But the staff was so nice that we didn’t even complain. I will return I’m hoping it was just a bad day in the kitchen.

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. Service was just a tad slow (not an unusual circumstance with Covid affecting staffing right now) but the staff was very cordial and seemed to be going full tilt to handle what, in our area, was nearly a full house. Well done, Brennan’s
