We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and had a great time as always. This is one of the best venues in Houston for almost any special event. It is difficult to find better food and better service in Houston. Can't wait to return.

As always, Brennan’s was amazing. Great food! Great service! Great atmosphere! From the turtle soup to the Chippewa Shrimp to the Bananas Foster, it was all fantastic!

Love Brennans! Went during a cold snap in Houston so very few folks there. Despite being many people there they tried to seat us in a high traffic area next to entrance in main dining room. Don’t understand that when there were so many better tables available. Made them move us and they were fine with it but seemed strange to start with.

Regardless, this is a great place to eat! Definitely be back.

Brennan’s never disappoints! Consistently top notch food, service, and atmosphere. It’s our “go-to” spot when we want the very best, with no chance for disappointment.

We have never had a remotely negative time at Brennans. The staff, food, and surroundings are one of a kind. Only the best of any component are part of Brennans.

A plus and beyond. It's a privilege to dine with them.

I brought my SO here for our 1 year anniversary. When we arrived they brought us to our table, which had a ribbon on it, to signify our anniversary. The noise level was moderate, but in the best way. There was a band going around the tables asking of our special occasion and asking if we would like a song. The band was really good and the gentleman singing has an amazing voice. The chairs at the tables were very wide and very comfortable, with a back pillow. Our waiter had the best suggestions and was always punctual and polite. The food was outstanding, it was definitely well worth the price. When we had dessert, they made it right in front of us and had it on a plate that said “Happy Anniversary”. That meant a lot to us, because not only was our day special to us, but the restaurant showed that they care about our occasion. I will definitely be coming back!

Brennan's has done it once again! They're always consistent with ambiance, food and service. However, this time we felt the service went over and beyond. I highly recommend spending a special occasion or holiday with Brennan's. You will not be disappointed.

It was my daughter’s 16th b day and she had her boyfriend join. They were treated as special guests and all the staff made her feel very special. Both said it was some of the best food they’ve ever had. Thank you for being a wonderful restaurant from top to bottom and everything in between.

I went for my birthday celebration and they did make me feel very special. The food was excellent but the service was at times quite slow. There was a boisterous table near us that spoke way to loud and took too long to sit in their seats. I would not get the mini beignets again because they were disappointing.

Brennan's is definitely the place to dine at for brunch. Try the fried chicken with the pancake...divine! The service is always excellent, the wait staff is friendly and the ambiance is wonderful! It is a great place to celebrate and special occasion, and the jazz band will come by your table and sing requested songs! (Hint: Be sure to give them a nice tip!)

Frankly it was not up to Brennen’s normal standards. Service was hit or miss and confused at times. The steak was good but fish was very small. Salad was very small. Price was very high for a lunch. Overall we were disappointed.

Unfortunately Sunday nights here do not live up to the Brennan’s experience that they are known for. We came for a Christmas celebration and our expectations were not met. Hopefully this was just a one-off as we have really enjoyed our previous visits that did not fall on a Sunday night.
