Food is one of a kind and service is outstanding.
One of my favorites in Houston
Excellent dining experience. Our server made great recommendations from the menu. Steak and lobster were excellent!
Food was amazing! Beautiful View of the sunset & nice ambiance. Had a wonderful date night!!!
This was a great find on TripAdvisor. First time here but always a favorite from now on in Houston. Food & service & ambience were all excellent. Jamie was our waitress and she took great care of us . We sat outside by the water because it was such a nice night. This restaurant is so beautiful inside and out .. made for a perfect experience. Can’t wait to go back next time we are in town. Don’t forget to make reservations through Open Table.
Our meal was very good. A little pricey but relatively worth it. If we would’ve had the service to match the price then would’ve been definitely worth it.
This was our visit to this dining facility on the bayou. We found the staff very friendly, and helpful ,and the service excellent . We were also very impressed with the ambiance and the food was superb.
We would highly recommend this restaurant to someone planning an exquisite evening out!
Took my girl out for our one year anniversary and she loved the drinks they wearnt strong but had a kick to it. Loved that they got her stake right the first time and my f
Chicken was amazing non like I ever tasted before. Waitress was just kind and sweet .very easy to get along with n very helpful for first timers beginning there. Was just amazing.
Good service and good food. Venue has lots of character. We had a very nice evening.
Waiters allowed a guest to FaceTime at their table. Really? I paid $200 for Valentine's dinner and got to listen to someone else's conversation over their phone. They need to get rid of the pork fritters. Service was good although the food seemed to all come out at once and then we had to wait for a dessert. Just not the normal Brenner's experience.
We were placed upstairs in a small room. Ruined it for me. No view
The best steak in Houston by far, and the ambiance is very confortable and nice
Nice place and ambiance
Mayra was absolutely amazing. I think she was the hostess? I’m not sure, but she sure acted like a manager checking on us and making my partner laugh so much. She gave us such an experience from the last time I came in Valentines.
Food was very good but was a little disappointed that where was a $95 set menu for Valentines Day instead of being able to order off the menu. It did not show that on their website or on Open Table. That being said, their scallops and veal chop were outstanding. Did not care for the complimentary hard bread pieces they served. The decor was very outdated and their service was decent but could be better considering we paid $150 per person with drinks and gratuity. No one came and asked how our meal was and it was not overwhelmingly busy. Would come back again during the day when it’s not winter to check out their landscaping.
Brenner's Steakhouse on the Bayou is a beautiful restaurant. We were amazed by the ambience and décor. We both ordered Ribeye's during Valentine's day, and both were cooked with amazing flavor and at the correct temperature.
Celebrated Valentine’s dinner here. The pre-set menu was wonderful and even better than we anticipated. Look forward to returning.
So disappointed about spending our Valentines Day at Brenner’s. Maybe this is our fault, but no one informed us ahead of time that there would be a prefixed menu. It wasn’t listed on open table, so we figured we could actually order from the menu. We were especially looking forward to a few things. The items that were available to choose from were not what we were expecting from Brenner’s- pulled pork fritters were underwhelming and the chicken fried quail was alright but full of bones. The second course brought us a tomato soup which was again underwhelming and a ravioli option made from meat NOT pasta. Again, maybe it’s our fault for not interpreting the menu better, but the ravioli dish is to be the worst thing we’ve ever had. Ever. It was laughable watching my boyfriend try to keep his face neutral as he chewed and eventually got it down. The entree’s were nice which was a relief. We were hoping we could try their macaroni and cheese, but they weren’t serving it. Instead, we order mashed potatoes with our meal. They were yummy! Lastly, there was two dessert options- a chocolate mousse and a strawberry tart. I was so looking forward to the strawberry option! However, our waiter came to inform us after we finished our entrees that they had run out of desserts and we could have a small brownie sundae instead. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! We had a reservation for 6:00 on Valentine’s Day when they were planning on serving this meal for the next two days after. How in the world do you run out of the dessert options that early? I felt bad for our poor waiter having to tell us the news- he really was a great server. Overall, we were so disappointed with the food and that we spent $300 on this meal. Was hoping to try one of the great steak restaurants in Houston and add a new place to our celebratory restaurant list, but I just can’t imagine ever going back here.
Very good food & our server, Joe, was wonderful. Only hitch was that, despite a 5:30 reservation, neither of the 2 Valentine's menu desserts were available. This was very disappointing as this is one of our favorite anniversary celebration restaurants, but this is the second time this has occurred. The manager did however compensate generously with alternative choices.
Fantastic Place for Date Night or Dinner with Family. The Attention to Service, Detail and Quality of Food makes for great experience.
Great food overall and a very nice atmosphere / location.
I was so disappointed with our visit this time around. We have had corporate events (Vitol) at the outside bar and company meetings (Gideon Asset Mgmt) in their private rooms, but this visit was extremely disappointing.
In hopes of celebrating Valentines early, we made reservations on a Wednesday and figured the experience would be lovely. Ordered the char-grilled oysters, Red fish entree, and my bf ordered a steak. My fish was overcooked and cold by the time I got it. His steak was ordered Medium-Well, it was basically raw with bloody liquid pooled on his plate. It was so dark in the corner we sat in, he couldn't see it. We took it home, he tried eating it the next day and even 5 min. in the microwave didn't help. Our waiter Max was not great, he checked on us twice the whole time we were there, just not what I have experience before. May be the last time visit unless they can make it right.
The overall experience was enjoyable, tasteful, and beautiful for a night out to celebrate an anniversary. The food was exceptional, the service was top-notch, and the ambiance was warm and inviting. We optioned for valet, and appreciated that the walkway had cover as it was lightly raining. Our reservation was on-time and our seat was readily available upon arrival. Our waitress displayed a professional and fun personality with high degree of knowledge regarding the restaurant, Houston, and anything on the menu. We ordered the items recommended and were elated with the presentation and high quality taste. We plan to return in the future.
Meh. Brunch menu could be better. Not really worth the price. Better options out there.
Our Waiter, James, was the absolute BEST! Going to Brenner's is ALWAYS a fabulous dining experience!
It was an Amazing night!! Food, Ambiance, Service, everything was exquisite!! Couldn’t have asked for a better night!! Hands down the best experience in quite some time.
Lots of steak places in Houston. The food here is only fair. Not many good choices beyond steak. No vegetarian choices so beware for those in your party! Nice grounds but they won’t hold your table if you want to look around.
People were welcoming but I didn’t see my own server much as I wanted. Fool was Phenomenal and will definitely be back for more .
What a beautiful place to have a meal! We will definitely be back again!
Fantastic Service and Delicious Food!
INCREDIBLE dining experience! The ambiance, the service, the food, the location! Sheer perfection for celebrating my beloved's 49th birthday! We will be back!

This particular night there was a 18 y/o birthday party on the patio. It was not the usual ambiance but who cares the food is always great, staff are helpful and polite. It was a nice change to see some young people enjoying the place. This is an up scale establishment and that isn’t the usual crowd. Won’t deter me from returning
All the servers we encountered were very knowledgeable, polite and helpful. The reason for the rating is the delays in corralling them for assistance. I think that’s not typical as many were preparing for a large BD party for some teenagers.
We will return.
It was my daughters baptism and the third time we have been there for such an event. I would just like to see more variety in the brunch menu. The menu was identical to what it was a year ago.
Not at this time. You still need to fix some quarks but overall it was 85% better than my first visit of 0%. Thank You
Great place!!! Everyone on the staff knew it was our anniversary and congratulated us. From the hostess, bartender, waiter and server were great! I never knew they had a such thing as a tequila old fashion until the waiter told me about it and my favorite drink is the old fashion. AWESOME drink!! I just want to say thank you to all the workers there who made me and my wife feel welcomed.
Fantastic. Not to be missed! Spend extra time on the patio after dinner.
Great food in a nice setting. Will be back. Highly recommend the NY Strip house special. Excellent
Was in town for a visit at M D Anderson. First time to try this Brenner's on the Bayou. It is an oasis in the city. Quite, relaxed atmosphere (which we needed). Started the evening off with a drink from the bar and met Nick our mixologist. Top notch! Very accommodating and friendly. We then were seated for our meal in a very unique setting overlooking the bayou. There we were served by Mac, very knowledgeable and cordial. The food was great...we really recommend the Texas Quail! The steaks were exceptional as was the side dishes. I highly recommend you try this unique restaurant...I believe you will return again and again. We will be going back.
