I was celebrating a birthday with a great friend. The food was yummy, the staff was so friendly and attentive, without being intrusive. I always enjoy eating at Brennan's no matter what the occasion might be.

One of the best restaurants in Houston for a truly special brunch. Service, ambience and food all impeccable to deliver a truly special brunch experience.

Yellow leather wingback chairs are legendary.

Lovely dinner with friends at Brennan’s. We enjoyed eating on the patio, and the $99 September special was great. Among the group of 4, we had the salad, turtle soup, and shrimp remoulade starters, the crab cakes (UNBELIEVABLY DELICIOUS), steak, shrimp & grits entrees, and bananas foster, & bread pudding for dessert. That was almost each item on the menu, and all were up to the usual Brennan’s excellent standard.

Can’t wait to go back!

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.
