While we are not regulars, we have always gone to Brenner's Steakhouse for our special occasions. This was our 49th wedding anniversary. It is a very special place to us. The food, service, ambiance is top notch. Its smaller dining room makes for a very intimate experience. Thank you Brenner's Team for making our evening welcoming and very special.

It was a fantastic evening out with my leadership team and a great way to thank them for all their hard work. The food was amazing, our waiter was fantastic (want Matthew again for our next dinner), and the room was setup perfectly with two bottles of champagne chilled when we arrived. What could be better than that!

When we arrived the vibe and ambiance is really nice! Until they sit you in the garden room, then it’s different!
Service was excellent at the bar and the martinis were some of the best and I am extremely picky about drinks, but again in the garden room drinks took 4 times as long to get, wait staff was in and out of buildings and it’s a feel that you are the red headed step child.
Went here in lieu of Eddie Vs or Perry’s or McCormick and Schmidt’s
Won’t make that mistake again!!!!!!

Now if our visit had us sitting in main room it may be a different review, but I won’t ever know because we won’t be visiting again!

Food was underwhelming. Not consistent with quality expected at a high end restaurant.

Service was ok, but not remarkable. Not what we are accustomed to from experiences at comparable places.

I ordered Surf and Turf. Lobster tail was very good. I ordered the filet medium-well. They split it in half horizontally (never seen that done before) and it was definitely overdone. Taste was very good but it was dry. They did comp us desserts.

Ladies at front desk were not helpful at all. Food was average at best , shrimp cocktail consisted of 3 shrimp lying on wilted lettuce and some mostly melted ice. Our steaks were cooked properly but were inferior quality for what I expect at this price point and exclusivity of this restaurant. This place deserves to deliver great food and service but falls far short. Yes it was Valentine's weekend but it was not very busy while we were there.

The heater was not working it was very cold and if I would have known this beforehand I would have cancel my reservation. It’s hard to enjoy a meal and drinks when you are freezing. I wasted my money and time

We were told we could not enjoy another bottle of wine at our table instead of dessert. We could sit outside in 36 degree weather or sit in the over crowded bar. As a long time customer of this restaurant it was disappointing and made us realize that in the future we will give restaurants that truly care our business in the future. Turning a table was more important to them than the milestone birthday we were celebrating. Lesson learned.

Its been ages since I've been here for lunch...what a nice, quiet restaurant with an amazing view. They have outside and inside seating available...the ambiance is perfect for a group of friends or for business conversation. Actually had the salmon dish - tremendous portions and cooked perfectly. Definitely a great place to go.

Lovely setting outside; very clean. Outstanding waitstaff and bartender. Only ate appetizers, was there for drinks. Would like to see more selection for appetizers, appetizers = 3 and food off the regular menu = 5 (out of this world). We try to go every week!

Food was amazing! I ordered a medium rare ribeye and it was perfect and delicious!
My wife ordered a medium rare filet and it was pretty rare, but even she ate it and enjoyed it.
We were celebrating our anniversary and could not have chosen a better place to eat. everything was delicious and staff was great.

I knew this place was pricey as it's long reputation for great food and upscale environment, but $80 for a steak and I have to pay an additional $10 for a side, a little ridiculous if you ask me. That's my only complaint though! Like I said, I knew what I was getting into although I feel they could be alittle more reasonable.

Well worth it! Definitely recommend this place.

We attended Brenner's last weekend in celebration of my wife's birthday ... and our experience was mixed at best.

The ambience at Brenner's is marvelous, and the attentiveness we received from our server Chris was outstanding.

There were several major issues with the food:
- My wife received an incorrect appetizer (in fairness, Chris was quite apologetic and resolved the issue quickly)
- She was not impressed with her opening salad - it was bland, with nothing to distinguish it, frankly, from any salad available off the shelf at a supermarket
- My braised beef short ribs were delivered cold
- Upon their reheating and return, they were not of good quality; the meat was dry and stringy

As for a future recommendation, we might recommend Brenner's primarily for the warm and inviting atmosphere - although, to be honest, we're not sure that even that is enough to make up for the deficiencies in the quality of the food we experienced.

The valet was really unprofessional. The service basic, i think this steakhouse is just overpriced for nothing. The food was average, I only really liked the crabe cake. Their crème brûlée was more brûlée than cream.

One of the finest and best places to eat close to the Energy Corridor.
The dining room is relaxed with nice music and a warming ambient.
The wine cart and Licor variety is excellent with a great selection of local and imported options.

Made reservations for a birthday dinner, and listed birthday occasion. We Were asked by the host if it was my birthday and said yes , I’m thinking the waiter just forgot to ask , not a big deal , aside from that the place was amazing. And food was great. Just a heads up remind your waiter it’s a special occasion. :)
