A very good restaurant. Good variety of food with good off- menu items. Gets a little noisy in the middle if the evening but worth it. Definitely a must try.

We went here for a work Christmas Party and it was to die for. We had several appetizers, desserts and entrees around the table, so we got to try a bit of everything (except for the entrees - that steak was all mine). Everything we tasted was a delight. They even have a free valet car service (they work off tips, I believe).

“First time visitor, but it won't be the last time.”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

I'd been wanting to try this restaurant for a while. I was worried that we were going to be the only people in here under 60 because it has a bit of a reputation of catering to the older, richer class in Houston. But I was happy to find out that there was a good mix of customer base - from the old rich to the young and hip. There was a mix of people dressed up to a few people I saw wearing shorts. The website says "smart casual" so I dressed in business casual. It looked like about 80% of the people followed the dress code. I was also worried that because it was owned by Landry's, it would feel like a typical Landry's chain restaurant, but I'm happy to report this is much better than a typical Landry's chain restaurant. We had reservations and got there early to enjoy a drink in the bar. The bartender tells us they have the worlds largest small screen t.v. Ha, it was showing baseball on a little 19" lcd above the bar. Not here to watch t.v. though. We ate in the main dining room and had a very nice table for 2 and it didn't seem like we were crowded next to people. We ordered salads, the 6 oz. filet with au gratin potatoes, the mushrooms, and the three sauces. The food was absolutely delicious. The sauces were fantastic with the steak. We also ordered the chocolate mousse cake for dessert, but couldn't finish it all. The service was great. The manager came over on several occasions to ask us how we were doing and I saw her walking around the restaurant checking up on things. The total meal including tip and drinks was about $200, but I thought it was well worth it for a great date night. Can't wait to go back.

Lots of local talk about the famous Brenner's steakhouse. Perhaps that is folklore. For sure the prices are very expensive, unfortunately the price does not reflect the quality. Scallops for appetizers were large, but had grit in them. The steak was over cooked, tough, and not enjoyable. The sause was salty. Completely dissappointed. Didn't have the wine we chose. Avoid this joint.

“Over hyped”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

The steaks were good. Everything else was mediocre. Salads were awful,mushroom soup was worse than canned soup.I fail to see why people make a big fus over this restaurant.
