Impeccable service, delicious food, elegant but relaxed atmosphere, fine wine. Our birthday brunch lasted for three very enjoyable hours with champagne, appetizers, wine, entrees, deserts, and aperitifs. Truly a special place to celebrate a special occasion. One of Houston's finest restaurants.

Do not go here on special occasion weekends (e.g. Valentine's weekend brunch)......they cram too many people in and service and quality of food suffers. We have had stellar meals here in the past, but this Sunday Brunch was BAD......too loud, stuck upstairs, long waits between courses and cold food......we made Easter Sunday reservations weeks ago but may be cancelling if we can get in somewhere else.

Brennan's is a long time family favorite that continues to make and evoke memories of sharing creole specialties with new and tasty twists. It's also a go-to for hosting newcomers to Houston. The ambience is as enticing as the food.

Brennan's is always a treat and a special event. I had not been to brunch there in years. I had the Eggs Sardou, poached eggs on an artichoke heart with Hollandaise and sitting on a bed of creamed spinach. They were perfection except I would have enjoyed something else on the plate like a broiled tomato or tomato slices. I think either the benedict and sardou would be improved that way to cut richness and add more color. Started with the delicious and generous brunch salad and finished with their perfection of Bananas Foster. Nothing too new here, but it doesn't have to be. You always get what you expect at Brennan's which is excellent food, service, ambiance. Beautiful space and my favorite Brennan's.

One of the best V-Day experiences I've had. We sat outside in the patio and enjoyed the gas lanterns, fountain, and the beautiful courtyard. It was like being in New Orleans but cleaner and nicer. Extremely romantic evening...

Great customer service and great food. A awesome atmosphere, ambience. Celebrating our 30 year anniversary. I couldn't not have picked a better restaurant.
We will recommend to all of our friends.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a Brennan's Brunch. The Brunch special is a great value with a soup, entrée and dessert for $36. The service was attentive and the food delicious. Being originally from New Orleans, turtle soup is rare to find in Houston and it was perfect at Brennan's.

Midtown Houston favorite. Staff's attention to detail started with a sincere hostess greeting that included "Happy Birthday" to my wife.
Upstairs, private room seating provided a wonderful view.
Robert, Aaron & Jose provided a perfect tempo of service, with special attention for the birthday dinner.
Meal included the crab cake starter, oyster stew, pontchartrain seafood medley & bourbon-glazed duck.
Always a pleasant experience to dine at Brennan's.

A co-worker and I found ourselves in Houston on business for a week. I wanted Bananas Foster and he wanted Creole food, so we couldn't wait to get a table at Brennan's. Everything about our lunch experience was top-notch: hospitality, service, presentation, ambience, food, cleanliness, and friendliness of staff. We found the two-course meal to be a great value: plenty of food with room left for dessert (Bananas Foster!), all priced well below our daily food allowance.
I will sing Brennan's praises to anyone who will listen, and I hope to visit again on a future business trip.
A happy customer from Minnesota (and her colleague from California)

With its primarily Cajun/Creole influences, Brennan's is one of the few truly fine-dining restaurants left in Houston. Unfortunately, they've relaxed the dress code, but still, people tend to dress fairly well (at least during cooler weather).
Food is the draw, of course. Snapping turtle soup with sherry is always outstanding as a starter. Our table of six had several appetizers including oysters on the half shell--all were absolutely delicious.
Our entrees varied from the Gulf fish Ponchartrain to the steak with crab meat to another outstanding fish dish, and even the ladies finished everything on their plates. All six of us enjoyed Bananas Foster, from the presentation to the taste.
Maitre d' Daniel Friedman was extremely welcoming, and made us feel right at home. We found a couple of well-priced wines, but you must know your wines or trust your server.

We celebrated a Wedding Brunch at Brennan's 47 years ago for my sister and brother-in-law. It was a very memorable and cherished occasion. Recently, It was such a treat to again celebrate at Brennan's for their 70th birthdays! It was just as memorable and fortunately, the Eggs Benedict and Bananas Foster were just as good as 47 years ago. The restaurant was beautiful with an energizing atmosphere and excellent service. So many things change over the years, but a delightful and delicious brunch at Brennan's is one thing you can count on!!

Every time we go to Brennan's (and we eat there several times a year), we leave with the remarks, "That was the best meal Brennan's has prepared." The service is wonderful, the atmosphere is terrific and the staff is so friendly. The prices for drinks are reasonable (lower than most restaurants of this caliber). Ask to have Marcelino, Joe or Thomas wait on you. They have been there for years!!!

Wife and I both had the Brennan's salad. The salad dressing was nice and light, but at $18 per salad it was over priced. The fresh bred was very good. My wife had the Duck and I had the 8oz filet. Both tasted great. She had the cheesecake and I had the bread pudding. While they tasted fine, there was nothing special about them unless you count the fact my bread pudding was gooey. Service was very good. Overall 4 star.

We were from out of town visiting friends in Houston and came here on one's recommendation. The meal was superb. I had a delicious shrimp and grits dish made table side that I would recommend to anyone. The wine list was ample, and the decor had a rich Southern feel. Would heartily recommend visiting here.

Everything about our dinner was lovely. We were originally seated by a loud group, and they were so understanding and moved us without hesitation. The wait staff was amazing and so was the food and the beverage. Highly recommend for any event or just a wonderful night out!

Always a pleasure to enjoy this iconic top-notch restaurant! So many special memories there and fun to create new ones with our kids. The food is outstanding every time, and the exceptional service out-does itself every time.

Found this on a whim, just scrolling online to find a new place. We were seated near the front of the restaurant, next to a fairly loud table of about eight people. Not a big deal, but you might want to request a quiet table if it's important. Our server gave us a tour of the restaurant and kitchen - totally unexpected - but fun! We left with souvenir pralines that were delicious. The good was good, but not remarkably so. I think the restaurant is known for their service and history and it was obvious a lot of "old money" frequents this establishment. There is a business casual dress code so be mindful of that if you haven't been here. We will return for special occasions.

Wonderful food and a great waiter, but very slow service. Perhaps caused by the Saturday night crowd, but still annoying. None the less, overall I rate it as one of the best in Houston. Excellent menu choices, and one of the few restaurants where they have bananas foster on the desert menu.
