Brennan's of Houston Ratings and Reviews
What a disappointing night. This restaurant has always been dependable until tonight. Tonight, we had a rookie waiter who wasn't anywhere near the high standards we've experienced at Brennan's in the past. Plus, the power went out near the beginning of the meal and remained out most of the night. They even had to run credit cards manually. We ordered a steak rare and it came more than medium, so we sent it back. It was very warm most of the night, presumably due to the power issues. No acknowledgement of the issues at all. It'll be a long time before I try Brennan's again - there are too many other great restaurants in town.
I went here for my Junior Prom in 1970. It is still one of my favorite restaurants of all time for the ambience, service and food. The food is a trifle rich for me these days. I appreciated that we were able to have conversation without having to interpret above a loud din. Everyone had a wonderful time.
One word...AMAZING!!! We went to Brennan's to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary from the moment we walked in our experience was superb!!! Every dish we tried was delicious. I recommend Brennan's if you're looking for a nice romantic spot to celebrate any special occasion.
The service is always great at Brennan's. My wife and I went for dinner prior to our theatre show. My wife loved her watermelon salad and the seafood gumbo was spectacular. We both had the shrimp Chippewa, which is always wonderful, especially with the show you get since it is prepared table side. The waitstaff was amazing and attentive the entire time without being intrusive. Thank you Brennan's for a wonderful experience.
We lived in New Orleans in the late 90's, and often frequented Brennan's there.
This was our first time to the one in Houston, and it reminded us of our time there.
Favorites--turtle soup and cafe Brulot!
Our waitstaff, Christian and Christian (each pronounced differently) were superb.
I took my friend to Brennan's for her birthday and the staff made us both feel special throughout the meal. Our waiter was constantly taking care of the little things, like turning our coffee mugs so the handle was facing our right hands or wiping up the spill of coffee on my saucer. However, we didn't feel as though anyone was hovering over us. It was just a really delicious meal in an unhurried atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone celebrating a special occasion, having a romantic date or just wanting to enjoy quiet conversation with a friend.
For one guy on a business trip, this was about a $100 meal including tip and two beers with my dinner. For starters, I was a little disappointed that they offer no beer on tap here, just a limited number of bottled beers, and the selection is rather underwhelming. I guess this is more of a wine and whiskey place than a beer place, which is fine, but the beer selection was kind of surprising in this day and age, when the vast majority of finer restaurants are giving more options. For my meal, I had a cup of the gumbo, the Pontchartrain seafood/fish dish on the menu, the collard greens side dish, and the pecan pie for desert. The gumbo was mediocre and warm. It was nowhere near being hot. That, too, was rather surprising and disappointing. The main dish, I thought was in the "pretty good" category. But it was not in the "knock your socks off" or even the "very good" category. The shrimp in the dish were tiny. The best thing I had were the collard greens, which were outstanding. The pecan pie was what you'd expect anywhere down South. Nothing unusual or special, really, just some good pecan pie with some good vanilla ice cream on top. Overall, this was a good meal, but I don't think it was a $100 value. I've had much better fare for far less in many other cities and fine restaurants.
Very nice restaurant. Food was good but came a little too fast, felt like as soon as your plate was cleared the next one was put down...I needed a little more of a break between courses. All the food was enjoyable - would recommend the Gulf Fish. Bread Pudding was awesome. Service was friendly.
One of the most awesome meals I've ever had. It was for my daughters 20th birthday and the restaurant made the occasion so special. The garlic bread at the outset is insanely delicious. Every aspect was just outstanding and they capture the New Orleans feel and taste perfectly. The Bananas Foster does not disappoint and everything in between from the Short Rib to the fish is magical. A 10! The service was also outstanding
We came for a special dinner with our daughter's boyfriend to ask our blessing for her hand in marriage. We were stuck in a corner so far the drapes were in the way, despite the restaurant being relatively empty. Service was attentive and parts of the meal were good. We ordered the short rib special which came out on a board and was so heavily smoked I couldn't eat it. Unfortunately it wasn't the right time to send two entrees back so we just let it go. Very disappointed in a meal that I know should have been divine. We will go back but we will stick to the tried and true options.
