Brennan's of Houston Ratings and Reviews
Dining at Brennan's tells your friends and loved ones that you really care for them. It combines Southern hospitality with delicious food and outstanding service. You eat well and they make you feel very special.
Our party's selections ranged from steak to fish to vegetarian. The "standards" (turtle soup, bananas Foster) are still terrific and the variety of creative dishes encourages you to return.
Everyone made us feel at home and the servers successfully managed our dinner to ensure we timely departed on the shuttle service to Hobby Center.
Brennan's is always beautiful and elegant. It is a perfect spot for brunch or a wedding shower or even a power lunch. The food is good, although I wouldn't say outstanding. The service is nice too. The Saturday brunch was $36 which I didn't think was a great value since we were just eating Eggs Benedict but it did come with a soup/sald (neither of which sounded good with egge) and a tasty dessert. There was just anything that was different or spectacular. Love their high back wing chairs though. They lend themselves to quiet conversation.
Waiter never mentioned specials and then told other table about off menu options. Vegetarian entree was just a bunch of side dishes. I didn't think any of the entrees were worth the $40 + price tag. Cocktail list was not as innovative as other restaurants. Kind of feel like Brennan's is living off its reputation and can't keep up.
Overall, a great place for a pair or a group to celebrate. The food was great and the service was attentive and ready to perform their signature flaming deserts and put on a show. The prices were reasonable for the quality of the food being served. The only two things I found a bit off were a (required) $5 for valet parking, which seemed a bit high for Houston and their repeated (both online and onsite) insistence on "business casual" attire that was to be strictly enforced... however, when there, I saw several notable examples of non business casual that seemingly fell under their enforcement radar.
The food was delicious and well prepared. We had craft cocktails to start and then fresh oysters and soups, a variety of entrees, dessert, and coffees. We enjoyed it all and it was quiet so we had great dinner conversation.
There is a dress code, which we appreciate, but have not been seated in the main dining room on multiple visits; and we dress for dinner - ties and dresses. So for the cost we won't go back to be put in one of the small dining areas again. There are better fine dining options in Houston.
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 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.
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.
