Very great food and atmosphere. Went here for our anniversary and would recommend it to anyone!
I can't believe I've lived in Houston for 7+ years and had never been to Brennan's (with the exception of a wedding, does that even count?).   My husband and I were looking for a special place to celebrate a "last supper" of sorts with our friends before they welcomed their new baby, and Brennan's hit all the right notes we were looking for.  Also just a heads up, it's one of the few places in Houston where a jacket is required so make sure you dress accordingly. The inside is old school New Orleans white tablecloth fancy.  You instantly feel as though you're in for a treat and all the waitstaff is incredibly attentive.  From the minute you step inside, the level of service is spot on.  Our waitress was knowledgeable and gave us some great recommendations.   We all started with the oxtails and dumplings, at the waitress's suggestion.  They were fantastic and surprisingly light.  We also ordered the crab bisque to start with, which was insanely creamy and decadent.  They'll also give you a hot loaf of freshly baked French bread which you'll probably eat too much of, but YOLO. For my entree I went with the crab cakes.  I was a bit hesitant that it wouldn't be enough food but it was the perfect amount.  They don't use any fillers so they're nice and hearty.  No side dish required!  My husband got the shrimp and grits and inhaled every last bite.   For dessert we all shared an order of the bananas foster, which was impressively flambed at our table.  It was the perfect amount of food for our dessert and we loved every last bite.
I mean they really don't need a review . . . Everyone knows Brennan's is amazing. However, Yelp is promoting me to review so I will do so. I had a steak which was fabulous, the chili con queso potatoes (also awesome), a really good salad (but will ask for light dressing next time), and the bananas foster which was probably my favorite part of the meal. It was really fun because my husband and I were just having a typical Saturday date night while my in-laws watched the baby but we ended up going to Brennan's which made it even more special!
