We visited my daughter and her boyfriend this weekend and she was tickled to bring us to Brennan's during Restaurant Week. What lovely service and great selection! We loved the corner area with the high back chairs!

This is one of the best Restaurants for fine dinning in the City of Houston. They take New Orleans food to an unbelievable level. Nothing you can say about this place is bad. From the moment you walk in the door you know you are on a dinning ride you will never forget.

Landed in Houston for a 5-day stay with friends who picked us up at Hobby. We had been up since 4am and it was time for lunch. They had made reservation (recommended) and it was the perfect restaurant to kick off our visit. The overall experience from 25c martinis, to the food, to the service was superb.

So Brennan's is a fun great place to go, but if you are lucky enough to have such amazing service it makes the entire experience much more enjoyable! Willem demonstrates such excellent service and knowledge of the hospitality industry and Brennan's. Thank you for another very enjoyable visit.

My friends and I came to Brennans for a girls night dinner and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Admittedly, we ate off of the Houston Restaurant Week menu, and it was well worth it! Our server was had a great personality and took excellent care of us! The Cajun styled food was exactly what we had hoped for and we will definitely... More

I had dinner here last week and it has been a while since I've dined at the New Orleans home location I have to say that this was an amazing restaurant that would rival the original. Our service was impeccable and attentive and we started with their grilled oyster appetizer which was delicious and then had the fried soft shell... More

We love Breakfast at Brennan's in New Orleans, so when we saw the brunch menu on the Houston Restaurant Weeks website for Brennan's of Houston, we were excited to try it. (Restaurant Weeks raises money for Houston Food Banks; restaurants provide special price fixed menus and donate from the proceeds of any meal from that menu). The restaurant was lovely,... More

Since our 1967 opening as a sister restaurant to the world-famous Commander's Palace in New Orleans, Brennan's of Houston has evolved into the city's premier destination for memorable dining served with true Southern hospitality. From the reservationist to the waiters, chefs and every associate behind the scenes, our team is focused on the highest standard of excellence and equally dedicated to creating enduring memories of snapshots in time: the sealing of business deals, wedding proposals, joyful celebrations, and the marking of significant milestones along life's way. And the proof is in the (bread) pudding, with loyal patrons returning time and again to create new memories.Reflecting the same warmth as our friendly greeting, each farewell concludes with Brennan's signature lagniappe: an abundance of unforgettably fresh pecan pralines.
