Excellent drinks and appetizers event

Exceptional food choices and a fun and informative cocktail demonstration were highlights of a professional networking event. Texas quail was particularly good.

We first came here in October, it was superb, everything was faultless. Based on this, we decided to come back with the whole family and it was totally different. Service was poor, food was mediocre, some dishes were lukewarm. There was limited choice for vegetarians, we were told veggie pasta or baked vegetables were all they could do (it is... More

I wanted to impress my wife on our 10th anniversary, and called three weeks in advance to request a really special table for two. When we arrived, the table we were given was anything but special. It faced a railing that was covered in Christmas decorations, and was adjacent to a server station. When I asked about other vacant tables... More

Had our last anniversary here. Had a small table near a window with a view. My husband had steak and I had sea bass. Perfection! The wait staff, the location, the food. We sat for over 2 hours. This is the way a meal was meant to be enjoyed.

My adult children and I went here for a post-Thanksgiving dinner on Friday night, and it was absolutely perfect. We arrived and were asked if we wanted drinks first, so we sat at the bar and enjoyed some great mixed drink options. There was no rushing, and we were given as much time as we needed to enjoy our drinks... More

My wife and I went to Brenner's to celebrate our second anniversary. The venue is very nice, with lots of wood on the interior and huge windows that look out onto the property which is also beautiful. But beyond the beauty of the restaurant, the rest was only average. For starters, the service was very slow. We were first brought... More

It was $75 per person for 4 course meal and drinks. Venue was gorgeous. Initial service was slow - we arrived at 5pm RSVP and didn't get our 1st course until 523pm. Bread plate would have been nice. The drinks were great, especially the sangria! Service was good. The food was good, but not spectacular. The chorizo from the snapper... More

Brenner's Steakhouse is an institution in Houston. Brenner's on the Bayou adds superb the superb ambiance of incredible atmosphere and views to the delicious Brenner's menu. The steaks are excellent and the special Brenner's Roquefort salad dressing is a must. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who asks for the best when visiting Houston.

We went for brunch, it was wonderful. The cinnamon was huge,(glad we shared it). Items on the menu were a little different from the norm. I had the pulled pork, it was very tender, really enjoyed it. The singer in the background had a really good voice. The garden was nice to wonder in afterwards. All and all a lovely... More
