I took my boyfriend there for his birthday and it was such a beautiful environment. We had the crab cake the scallops and the oysters for appetizers and they were so delicious! My boyfriend had a T-bone steak and I had the red snapper. We are Foodies so we know good food and Brenner's is it. We took pictures by the water it was a beautiful landscape I guess overall romantic. We will definitely be going back. They also brought my boyfriend a dessert with candles. They wished him a happy birthday when we first walked in as if they knew him and he felt spoiled.
Thank you for a great time

Loved it!, the appetizers (Scallops and Fried Burrata) were delicious, my husband oredered the red Snapper and he loved it, I ordered the Salmon and I was a little skeptical about the wasabi aioli but when y tried it I felt in love with the entire combination, and the brownie is the best, highly recommended 🖤

This is our second time going to Brenner's and this time was just as good as the first. We've only been to brunch so far but have had great experiences. The brunch pricing is fair, the food is delicious, and the staff is friendly. The property itself is very nice and a great place to go on for a date.

We made a reservation for two 2 weeks earlier & we were seated by the door when it was freezing outside, we asked if we could move tables & they forgot about us, took an hour to get our food .

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.

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.
