Description: Brasserie 19, located in Houston’s 77019 neighborhood, offers a modern amalgamation of French brasserie fare and well-known American influences. The chef-driven menu utilizes the freshest seasonal ingredients in thoughtfully prepared dishes. Brasserie 19 boasts an expansive, carefully developed wine list dedicated to pricing just above retail – a philosophy pioneered by owners Charles Clark and Grant Cooper upon opening their first restaurant, Ibiza Food & Wine Bar. Brasserie 19's sophisticated yet unpretentious interiors are bathed in cool greys and whites, with antiqued wood and white marble used throughout. Grey leather banquettes and comfortable chairs are paired with white linen and butcher paper-covered tables create a casually elegant setting for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Brasserie 19 will serve lunch and dinner 7 days a week, as well as brunch on Sundays.

Amazing! Complimentary shuttle from the Stages Theatre to the restaurant. Wonderful appetizers - two kinds of oysters (great) and "Eggs 3 Ways" (poached, custard and caviar) we both couldn't believe! Entrees unbeatable Halibut and Filet. Perfectly overstaffed, nothing went unattended start to finish. Dessert: Strawberries Shortcake (photo), perfect. A sparkler in a complimentary cotton candy vase to celebrate the end of our 24th anniversary week...wow...then shuttle back to the theater just in time!

“Good French Food”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We had been trying to go to this restaurant for a while since we had driven by it several times and looks quite appealing. We ended up going for Restaurant Week but I ended up ordering off the regular menu since there was no onion soup option on the RW menu. Definately did not regret my decision as it was very good, with a rich flavor and very cheesy and "oniony". We also ordered one of the seafood platters and escargot off the regular menu and were not disappointed with either. Everything was very fresh and flavorful.

Our Restaurant Week menu included a tartare that was one of the best I've had and came with some very nice crisps of some sort. Other RW menu items that we enjoyed the most were the trout almondine and the two desserts we ordered:creme brulee and dark chocolate cake.

Along with the food we enjoyed a variety of signature cocktails that we order off a tablet that has all their drinks and wine list. This can also be fun for those people that like techno gadgets.

“Another great Friday at B19”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

I dined at B19 this past Friday with my husband and two friends. We live in the neighborhood and eat there frequently, but i have never taken the time to post a review. Better late than never.... Friday's experience was another night of great fun and food at B19. The lively atmosphere is really hard to beat. You can't help but bump into friends and acquaintances which makes for a fun evening. The service was, as always, terrific. And, the food was quite good. This is not the best French bistro you will ever run across, however, it is consistently quite good for the price. We had the mussels as an appetizer and they were perfectly done...the four of us were practically licking the bowl. I had the salmon and my husband had the steak frittes. Both were very good. The only knock on the place is the noise, but the bustling atmosphere is part of the attraction.

“Great veal porterhouse, steak tartare and wine list”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We had a group of six friends for Restaurant Week. All of us enjoy a good meal and none of us were disappointed.

Almost all of us had the steak tartare which was superb. The portion was very large and had the quail egg in the middle. For our main course most had the veal porterhouse which for all of us was cooked as directed and delicious.

Service was excellent and the wine list (on an iPad) was very well priced.

“Very good”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Have had uneven experiences on our 3 visits here. Service in the evenings is great. Lunch service is snobbish and unwelcoming.

Food is the best part. Is loud and crowded but generally wait staff in evening help it out.

General grade: Dinner - go. Lunch - go somewhere else if you want to enjoy your meal.
