Overall pretty nice experience. A little disappointed in some of our food. We had the chef’s special fried green tomatoes, and the tomatoes were not ripe enough, hard and difficult to cut. My husband thought the lobster bisque had a stronger tomato gravy than he prefers. Our steaks were ok, but we’ve had better on other visits. Service was excellent!

The noise level is not properly assessed in the survey (energetic is not the right term - obnoxious is more appropriate). It was extremely loud to the point that two of us at a 2 person table could not talk to each other. Definitely hindered the experience. Wait staff was very good and the food was excellent.

In comparison to other four star restaurants Brenner's needs a major overhaul. The ambiance isn’t the same and the food quality has changed considerably.

We picked Brenner's to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary tonight and we were really disappointed. We almost always pick Brenner's for special occasions and they have done a good job in the past but tonight they really missed the mark.
I made the reservation earlier in the week and I informed Brenner's that it was our anniversary. I requested and quiet/romantic table for us but when we arrived we were seated in the middle of the restaurant at what was probably the loudest spot in the place. It was also right next to the kitchen so we had wait staff walking past our table the entire meal. The food was good but overall the experience was bad and our evening was ruined because of it. We will not be celebrating our 20th anniversary there next year.

Salads & Steaks were good. Only surprise of the evening- is they delivered our steaks to the table while we were eating out salads. ( maybe just 1/3 left.. but more than a few bites).

Food quality and service was very good. However, it was very noisy which made it difficult to carry on a table conversation or understand the server. I recommend it if you only wish to eat.... If you want to engage in any socialization, I would not recommend it.

Two years ago, we fell in love with Brenner’s “chicken fried filet mignon” - a filet mignon that was pounded out thin, battered and fried, and served with bacon cream gravy. It was delicious! They have changed the recipe. Now, the meat is not pounded out so that it is thin, and they top it with a gravy that is loaded with corn. In my opinion, the original was far better than this new concoction. We don’t normally eat chicken fried steak very often, but once a year, we would treat ourselves to this special treat. Sorry to see that they have changed the recipe so that it no longer tastes like traditional Texas-recipe “CFS”.

Excellent lunch for two. The only downside of Brenner's is the noise factor. Seated next to a group of loud business types shouting at high volume makes it impossible to have a conversation.

The waitress was excellent. She made sure to explain the menu to my husband and me. She also told the differences in the steaks. She made sure our glasses were never empty. She made my husband birthday a great and memorable day. I do not remember her name, but she was African American. Her customer services were GREAT!!!!!! We will visit again.

Thank you for a great experience.

We were seated in the private dining room and the AC was unreasonably cold. The bar was out of Zaya rum. Again. The old fashioned didn’t have a brûléed orange because the bar was out. It seemed like it was one thing after another throughout the evening. That being said JIMMY was outstanding! He was personable, attentive and went out of his way to make our evening enjoyable. We will definitely request Jimmy for our next visit.

Dined at Brenner's for my wife's 70th birthday. Notified the restaurant in advance about the special occasion to no avail. The food, as usual, was excellent and the recommended wine was delicious and well priced. However, the dining room seemed more crowded than ever and the noise level made normal conversation difficult. Table service was also slow at times.

There are a number of restaurants in Houston were a great steak can be had and a normal conversation can be held in some of them without physically bumping into the patrons at the adjacent table. Sadly, Brenner's isn't one of these and for these reasons I would not recommend it.

The food is always fantastic. The service is always attentive as well. This time the service went way above expectations. Even the valet helped our disabled mother-in-law to the car. If you want a wonderful meal and great experience, look no further than Brenner's. They never disappoint!

Wonderful service by Luis! We're a bunch of bossy women and he handled it beautifully! Delicious food. Only thing, it's quite loud in there so it's hard to visit.
