Brennan's of Houston
Iconic spot for Southwestern-Creole fare
Southern American · 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.”

This place is divine with a wonderful wait staff, top notch three course meals, and a band if you're lucky. Their wine list is about 52 pages of heaven. The only thing I would have changed is that I felt the artichoke in my Eggs Benedict was a bit tough and bland comparatively speaking to the rest of the meal. I highly recommend their now world-famous Bananas Fosters!!! This place is a large wing-backed throne room for each guest with chandeliers and beauty sparkling in every corner.

Amazing food and staff. We recently hosted our son's rehearsal dinner at Brennan's. We we're a large group and our food was flawless! We planned it from out of state and the catering staff were fabulous! The staff that day made the event so easy for us! Everything was perfect! Our guests raved! Expensive? Yes, but you get what you pay for! It was a truly memorable evening!

his is my premiere place to be seen. I enjoy it each and every time I go. I especially save this place for birthday and have even rented out the 2nd floor for such a SPECIAL occasion. Live music, romantic ambiance, good drinks, and of course the food is great. I cannot wait for another visit. Just typing this review makes we want to trek downtown right now. This 5 star rating is earned!!!
