This is the first time we eat at Brenner's and all i could think of during our romantic dinner was WOW! The carefully crafted cosy interior design blends perfectly with the scenic outlook on the landscaped exterior. It's a renovated old house with wood flooring, stairs and ceiling. It will take you back to your old momma's farmhouse! We had... More

It was one of those hot, steamy Houston nights. Fortunately we were seated inside behind the bar in a long room. Excellent appetizers and friendly wait staff took care of getting is drinks and wine. Entrees were very good. I had the shrimp entree which was great. Desserts were served and exactly perfect. An establishment I will look forward to... More

This place deserved five stars the first time, one star the second time and three/four stars the third time. Service is excellent and attentive but the food has either been fantastic or terrible. (Un)fortunately we live around the corner so this will be/is our hangout and the inconsistency of the kitchen is scary. The second visit with friends was terrible... More

This should get 5 stars by most standards, but I'm spoiled. No this is not like Brennan's in NOLO this is a very hip steakhouse, and an even hipper bar scene. We were greeted by attractive, and gracious hosts. Nice seats. The atmosphere is hard to describe, kind of like an upscale lodge, with outside tables if you like. Go... More

Our steaks were perfectly marinated and the lobster bisque was delicious. I found the potato cakes that came with the steak a bit too sweet but everything was delicious otherwise. A special mention for the impeccable service: our waiter was always one step ahead of us, filling up our glasses, suggesting we take a break on the large patio before... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 29th Anniversary and decided on Brenner's for dinner. It was VERY pricey, but everything from beginning to end was absolutely perfect. Service was extremely attentive, the food was delectable, and they even wrote on our dessert plate in chocolate wishing us a Happy 29th Anniversary (see pic). The ONLY negative thing I have... More

My wife and I recently ate at this restaurant. My wife and I had the same comment - "This is one of the best meals that we have had in a long time," I ordered a steak and my wife ordered the shrimp. Both were cooked to perfection and the sides were very good. The service was also exceptional. Overall,... More

If you're staying in downtown and want a great meal that isn't far away, I suggest Brenners on the Bayou. Great happy hour deck out back overlooking the Buffalo Bayou, and the menu usually serves up an impressive meal with local/regional twist. The 3-course meal is a best-buy at $42 and usually has at least three entree options, including a... More

The scenery is absolutely gorgeous, the food was delicious and the service was fantastic. Complimentary valet parking added to the exuberance. The wine or alcohol must be good there because our waiter was very persistent with recommendations even after we shared that we don't drink. My wife and I will return very soon. I recommend requesting a "view of the... More

I really enjoyed the atmosphere. The bar was on the small side, but it has a great patio to have drinks. The steaks were delicious. The wine list was also excellent. Service was outstanding. I will definitely return soon.
