Food was delicious, we were very satisfied. It was our wedding anniversary and made a note about it at the time of making my reservation. Nothing was special about our reservation. Server was hard to find, wouldn’t come and check on us. We have gone to many upscale restaurants in the city and we always get surprised with something special. Even just a verbal happy anniversary makes a difference. Would not recommend for a special occasion, maybe if someone just looking for a place to have dinner on a Saturday night then yes I would recommend.

Food and atmosphere was great! Drinks were good also. The valet service however could use a little polishing up. Other establishments that offer valet are courteous and would open the door for the passenger. No thank you or anything was given last night even after my boyfriend thanked him for bringing the car.

The restaurant itself was amazing - the only negative was the lack of handicapped-accessible areas (including the restrooms - they were upstairs). We were immediately entranced with the decor and layout. The food was also incredible - the ostrich tenderloin was the best we’ve ever eaten. The service was sporadic and seemed unorganized as if everyone was a trainee - we kept getting other table’s food (not sure how a 6-top order could be mistakenly served to a 2-top, but it happened). The busser filled up an extra water glass at the table and when we said that we didn’t need it she poured it back into the pitcher (that was disgusting). Also, the server couldn’t figure out how to apply the Landry’s birthday reward to our check, nor could they apply our dining points to our account - we were promised a manager could do it, but it didn’t get done. No big deal. We will definitely be back, but not on a Friday or Saturday evening.

$50 steak full of gristle. Servers rushed us whole time - made us feel stressed and pushed. Was like they wanted to get us out as soon as possible. Slamming cabinet door and dishes banging near us at a station. Won’t go back.

Love Brenner's and will always come back for special occasions. The food, the ambience and its all just fantastic. Last night however was a bit loud with a few parties trying to talk over each other but, nonetheless will not stop us from coming back.

Brenner’s on the Bayou is a great place if you take advantage of the gazebo and back views of the bayou. Restaurant was a bit loud cause of a large party next to us. Food was good, but we definitely don’t believe it was worth the price we paid. Service was great, Alexis was professional and knowledgeable while also attentive. And the busboys were great as well. Worth a try at least once if you haven’t been.

The scenery is beautiful. The food is regular, nothing memorable. The waitstaff was attentive and perfect for my request prior to the birthday dinner. (Probably the best part besides the scenery.) Seating (second floor near server's checkpoint) Felt too much movement as people walked by. Busser running into one of us at the corner. Feeling like you're in the way. Not the best experience but not the worst. Thank you for a good evening.

We have been to this location maybe 8 times and it has always been excellent. Today was off. The steak was very underwhelming. There was no sear, not much seasoning, the temperature was warm to almost cold(not hot) and the steak was very raw(ordered medium). I’m sure we will be back but for the price paid the steak was very disappointing.

Brenner's
Where Fantasy's Begin And Never End

I can't think of a better place to relax, unwind and enjoy a most superb dinner with my wife. Brenner's provided a very special and tranquil environment for my wife and I to reconnect after being separated by work all week long. We were both blown away by the ambiance that transcends us to another exotic place you would only expect to have traveling abroad in a tropical fantasy. Take the trip to Brenner's and you find that they effortlessly surpass all of your expectations.

Steak was tough and difficult to chew. We asked for a quiet table and we’re placed in an area with so much noise we could not have a quiet conversation. Paid a bill of over $400 for three and then had to pay extra for parking.
