Brennan's of Houston
Iconic spot for Southwestern-Creole fare
Creole · Midtown · $$$
The Zagat Review
An “way to visit New Orleans” without leaving town, this “peerless” Creole classic in Midtown combines “impeccable old-school service” , an “elegant setting” in a structure designed to evoke the Vieux Carré and “outstanding” food that includes – but goes well beyond – the “holy trinity of turtle soup, eggs Benedict and bananas Foster” (plus cocktails that'll “knock you off your barstool” ); the prices are “expense-account heaven” , but hey, “it’s more than just a meal, it’s an experience.”

Absolutely phenomenal renowned fine dining. We just celebrated Mother's Day and my Aggie graduation here, and everything from the aperitifs to the dessert was exemplary. If you have not visited this Creole classic, you must as soon as you have the opportunity. Fransisco was our server, and our friend Joey provided us with Mother's Day appetizers on the house. Both are excellent servers and will ensure you have an unforgettable experience. Thanks, and Gig 'Em!

My friend and I had brunch here for the first time and loved it. Awesome service and really nice atmosphere. I don't know who Justin is, as in what his position is, but he was awesome as well. He made our experience much more pleasurable than it already was. Of course the food was good, as well. I'm from New Orleans and I'm very cautious when ordering certain dishes that are originally from my hometown and state. I tried their gumbo. It was the best I ever had at any restaurant in Houston.

The atmosphere is nice, the staff is friendly, and the prices are good. Now that that's out of the way, let's focus on the food! Oh my goodness, but the food is delicious. The menu has a lot of different choices, and you cannot go wrong with any of them. Everyone in our party tried something different and each person loved their dish and shared it with others. All the food was well prepared and presented. The flavors in each were very rich and filling. We will definitely come back to this location!
