    On the whole the experience was great, we were there at the start of the day and were greeted by what seemed like every member of the staff. I was there to treat my friend for her birthday. The only item that I even made a comment on was every bread item I had, both the ones brought to the table to start and the muffin in my eggs Benedict were over cooked and dry, but for us easy to set aside because everything else was perfect. Probably just a bad batch. thank you for making it a good experience.

    You feel welcome and elegant at Brennan’s. The food is delicious the menu classic and creative. The service is first-class professional. An added touch is the talented musicians at Sunday brunch roaming the restaurant. Don’t miss them and remember to tip them too.

    This is a wonderful place for Sunday brunch. The food was excellent. I enjoyed the musicians stopping by at the tables playing traditional New Orleans music and jazz. I highly recommend Ricco. The only reason for 4 stars on service is that it was very slow until Ricco was assigned to our table. He was knowledgeable, very personable, happy, he definitely knew the food, wine, and menu. He made our bananas foster and walked us through the process as he explained what he was doing and why. This was a pleasant experience and a wonderful birthday celebration.

    Our waiter was Rodney, and he was exceptional! My friend had some food allergies that I wasn't of when I booked the reservation. Rodney and the cook bent over backwards to make sure that her meal was delicious in spite of her limitations. Thank you, Brennan's! PS- It would be great if Brennan's would include Eggs Benedict on their luncheon menu, as it is a classic dish, not just for Sunday brunches!

    Brennan's is one of the old established elegant dining venues in Houston. It is always first class in terms of service and food. They specialize in seafood options but have one of the best steaks available as well. The ambiance is New Orleans style and very upscale. I highly recommend Brennan's for a special dining experience.
