We ate outside on the patio, and the grounds were beautiful. The service was excellent and the food outstanding. We had the filet with an Oscar topping. The preparation was perfect and the quality of the cut exceptional.

Great place located just on the Bayou, with fantastic views and gardens. Went for dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was a good experience. Large wine selection, professional waiters, and good food. My Red Snapper was very fresh and the french green beans were perfectly cooked, crispy. Cauliflower was a little cold though. The Apple Strudel was very... More

We had an excellent evening, great food, delicious wine, and great service to top it off. Really no criticism of substance to be made at all. Lovely location, the gardens right by the Bayou are a great place to enjoy a nice dinner.

We enjoyed a birthday celebration at Brenner's. The steaks looked very good. I had a red snapper filet with crabmeat. The lobster bisque was excellent. Our waiter Ryan offered good recommendations for our wine pairings. Executive chef Ryan Braden came to our table to visit and check on our meals. Wonderful evening!

Thank VOjoe
