Just what I wanted. A quiet evening with the family paired with a nice view of the Bayou. Food was spectacular. Not one bad dish. Service was great. Our waiter DJ was very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend

Overall it was a great experience. Our table was not available for an additional 20 minute wait but we enjoyed Blue Bar while we waited.

This was not our first time at this location. We discovered that being seated on the upper level instead of downstairs, makes for a really noisy situation. We could hardly hear ourselves talk.
Also, they had the lights so low we couldn't see our food without a flashlight. Otherwise, the food was tasty and the service good

First visit to this Brenner’s location. Was here 10 or so years ago when it was the Rainbow Lodge. Entrees were ribeye, fillet and lamb chops. All were cooked correctly and had great flavor. Especially liked the the mashed potatoes. Shared the chocolate soufflé which was outstanding. Nick did a great job servicing us.
We ended up being seated upstairs. Very quiet and only 8 or so tables. Had I known I would have ask to be seated downstairs. Much more lively and better decor. I wish they had ask before seating me. Would not sit upstairs should I choose to return.

My boyfriend and I went to celebrate Valentine’s Day/ anniversary. The place was breath taking and the staff was so professional and nice. Our waiter Antonio had such an amazing personality, was very attentive to our needs and he had great recommendations. The food was amazing. Would definitely go again.

Excellent food. Excellent, professional service. Beautiful environment. Lighting, sound are just right for a date. Very pricey. I don't think they have a dress code but this would be the place to dress up.

Valentine reservations made almost a month out. No inside seating available offered to sit outside not knowing smoking was permitted in dinner section.

Decided to stay outside anyway and moved to different table away from smoking patrons.

Service was good, but I wished the reservation for a table inside had been available.

My wife and I had an awesome evening. Our dinner was different but very tasty. Once we finished our dinner, we ventured out to the patio area, and it was amazing and romantic. We will return and inform our family and friends.
