Brennan's of Houston
Great as always!!! Service was good. I wish the bowl of turtle soup contained more. It felt more like a cup.
Excellent food, excellent service. Brennan’s goes the extra mile to make a great evening. Expensive but worth it. Great for special occasions.
One of the best restaurants and dining experiences I’ve ever had. Great staff, amazingly decadent food, and lots of great conversation with friends. Strongly recommend this Houston classic!
Service was over the top! The food was delicious. Loved the old Southern charm of the decor.
Brennan's was an amazing restaurant that made our anniversary perfect! The food and service was excellent
Out of state business guests, first time to Houston. Brennan’s is always my go-to for great Houston experience.
Our table was lovely and well placed for conversation. Our waiter had an ethnic accent which was charming but difficult to understand. It was difficult to order our food. It was also difficult to question him about ingredients and preparations. He worked with a bus girl who was attentive and tried to intervene to help us in ordering. I think she may have had difficulty understanding her coworker. Many mistakes were made when the food came to the table incorrect placement and overall confusion in presentation.
The Gulf oysters on the half shell were excellent. Very briny and good sized. The turtle soup was thin and lacked depth in taste, plus too much sherry poured in. Our diver scallops were perfectly cooked. The beef ribs were generous and tasty. My husband enjoyed the cheese grits and desserts did not disappoint. The bananas foster table side flambé was just as we had hoped.
Drinks were good but pricey as usual.
We will return but hope for better service next time
One of the best brunches I have ever had, Brennan's-Houston is just like the Original in New Orleans. I have been going to the New Orleans restaurant since I was a child. Excellent food and excellent service!
Consistent quality as usual!!! Thanks
Everything was excellent. The table next to us was quite loud and that distracted us from our own conversation.
Have not been to the restaurant in several years. It was very quiet on this night because the world series was playing in town. Should have been great food and service because they had time to focus. Not So. Sauces and seasonings were just average and this is a Cajun specialty. Overall the meal was just average the the prices was very expensive for what you got. Not the same place it used to be. Go to new Orleans if you like Brennans food.
Overall experience at this restaurant was very good. The food was great as always. Disappointed with are main waiter which effected the experience. Will definitely go back. Hopefully we’ll have a waiter which will make the experience more enjoyable.
Reunion with friends
Amazing service and food as always, the pecan pie was delicious!!!
Unfortunately, we've dined at Brennan's when everything was excellent some years ago, especially the food. This time, while the service was still really excellent, the food was disappointing. The Gulf Fish Pontchartrain was overcooked and tasteless. The Osso Bucco's pork quality was good however the sauce and risotto was mediocre. We were disappointed in the main events due to general lack of taste! The lettuce wedge was outstanding. I must comment on the bread. Buying HEB frozen baguettes and serving them at Brennan's might have saved a star or two - what you served in the little white paper bag was really soft, dry and a ball of dough! A white paper bag does not make up for lack of quality! Maybe this was an off night and someday we will try again. In a city of so many really great restaurants serving many similar dishes, a name restaurant like Brennan's should not have off nights as you depend on good turnover and repeat business. Unfortunate!
Brennan’s hasn’t been updated in 35 years. Really needs to be refreshed all the way around. That may antagonize it’s foundational patrons, but they’re all over 80, right? Keep the bananas foster, naturally, but come on, this isn’t the 1980s anymore.
Unbeatable. We've had bridal showers at Brennan's - absolutely fabulous, the service was impeccable, food delicious, and staff professional! I've had brunch and lunch here and it never fails to impress! One of my all time favorites! Oh! Did I mention the live jazz band and NOLA atmosphere on Sundays! So so much fun!
Good food and great services!
I have enjoyed many meals at Brennan's. The food has always been exception, this most recent visit was not exception. Service was attentive without being overbearing or intrusive. This is an excellent restaurant with reliable quality and service.
All good! Some dishes a little more complicated than necessary. Simpler would’ve been better. But, that said, all was super delicious and staff were superb!

Returned to Brennan's while in Houston for a trip. Wonderful venue and evening! It is always special to visit Brennan's
The grilled oysters were disappointing. The red fish pontchartrain was very good. The ambiance and service were excellent!
One of Houston's finest restaurants, with a wide selection of a variety of fish, poultry and beef, expertly prepared. The restaurant is a great place for a romantic evening in an intimate and quiet setting, with outstanding service provided by experienced wait staff. We had a specialty birthday treat that was complimentary, and a reasonably priced and delicious bottle of champagne. Several dishes are prepared at tableside, including sauteed shrimp, bananas foster, and more. If you have not experienced Brennan's you definitely should.
Great time with friends and our waiter was the best!
Started in the bar with a flaming Old Fashion. Great value! Beautiful restaurant. Our server Wally was fun and enthusiastic and his teammate Jesse made a perfect Bananas Foster!
Wonderful dining experience. Best in Houston.
Great birthday brunch celebration with girlfriends!
I have been to Brennan's many times. This visit did not have the level of service that I've come to expect.
We gave the waiter our whole order up front and asked that he bring our appetizer before our soup. He brought it all at the same time. I had ordered the duck and he failed to ask how I would like it cooked. When the duck came I was only left with a butter knife to cut it with. The waiter did little to engage with us.
We picked Brennan's because it was our 30th anniversary and I wanted it to be a special evening. I know I will come back to Brennan's because I love the food. I just hope the service is better next time.
Excellent service! Amazing meal!!
Had a great birthday experience!
