REVIEWS OF Brasserie 19 IN Texas

Ryan Hunzeker

Stopped by for lunch today. The salmon was awesome. Cooked rare. The start of the show was the strawberry rhubarb crepes. I don't typically enjoy super sweet dessert and the bitter rhubarb cuts the sweet just right to make it perfect.


We sat outside and ate lunch. The atmosphere inside is very nice. Outdoors, they did their best with the space and scenery. I did feel as though I was eating in another country, like France, so it does have that vibe. Most items were pricey, but the sandwiches were reasonably priced, tasted fresh and delicious, and was filling. Great choice for a luncheon.

John Sullivan

Went for their Bastille day celebration and it was a blast! Food was incredible, and the band was great too. FULL bar, big patio, and great atmosphere. Will certainly be back.

Michael Raak

If you like wine/champagne, oyster, pâté, and/or the luxury lifestyle of River Oaks, look no further because your paradise awaits on W. Gray just down the street from one of the only street corners in the world that has 3 Starbucks. If you're there for lunch, try the French Dip...hands down best I've ever had. The wine prices are the best in town for a restaurant, no joke, and the place is managed impeccably well by Wendi Kfoury. This is just one of a few amazing restaurants the group of owners own, def recommend checking out Ibiza as well.

Brett Ray

The service was excellent and food delicious. Unlimited soft drinks with refills. We had a very late lunch. It was so good. I sat outside which was great and then later discovered how even more wonderful the inside was.

cassidy doucette

Came in for Houston restaurant weeks. Every course was delicious and our service was impeccable.

Scott Kramer

Great service, awesome food!

Marvin Lahti

Had the Trout, nothing to write home about. Green beans were terrible. Service was slow. Snobs. And not very good food, way overpriced for what you get.

Arthur Knesbach

Awesome Restaurant. Great Service. Can't wait to go back!!!!

Melissa Castro

Great location for delicious French food. This place is absolutely one of my favorites. The service was very friendly and attentive. It has a good feel to it.

Musa Lina

Food was expensive.


The food was ok but seeing a big tree roach solidified why I dont need to return.

Amy Vandivere

Bartenders are nice and the drinks are strong, I've never eaten there.

Kara Baxter

Fine location for tasty French food. Staff treated us so nice.

Ryan Burns

This is an upscale French restaurant with authentic French offerings. It has a bistro feel with a viewable kitchen, long bar and a lot of outdoor seating. The staff was very knowledgeable about the menu including the daily specials. The waiter was able to make recommendations and cater them to specific tastes. There is a wide variety in the menu and plenty of seating options.

James Oakes

Horrible service. Had reservations and didn’t get a table for a whole 40 minutes while we stood waiting. On top of that server didn’t ask us for our entree orders until 20 mins before the kitchen closed. It took an additional hour to split the check. Not a good birthday dinner. Had higher expectations

Colter Burleson

Fresh and flavorful oysters, perfectly cooked duck breast. Great service!


Escargots served as in a soup & no shells - not a good start! Small Shrimps in cocktail for $, Tartare spot on, Gratin 10/10, grilled sole rare side and broccolini soft & greasy.

Jeff Harlan

Fantastic ambience, dining service, and wine selection. Come with high expectations.

Gerard OBrien

Excellent food and service

Heather Leann

Friendly staff . The menu is inviting and the food is outstanding.

Jeremy Woodin

Food and service never disappoint. Val and Sid are the best!

robert willett

Always good, great people-watching

Louis-Philippe Bosse

Great atmosphere and ambiance. Very lively, however quiet enough to talk. Jorge was excellent as usually. The food was delicious and the order placed correctly on the first attempt. The dessert was also delicious as was ther espresso.

Chris Minnick

!Very good service and food, excellent wine list

Dawn Callahan

I’m not a fan of the restaurant but love the food. Does that make sense? The venue is very pretentious and the guests tend to be pretty cliquish, especially during the night scene. The staff plays into their atmosphere as well so be prepared to get the ‘manhattan makeover.’ With that said, the food is delicious! I know I know. Just offering full disclosure. Great apps and main dishes. Dessert? Yes please! Go but dress to impress or not. I don’t.

Azoosanna Cardenas

I went there to check out the bar and when I arrived the host was nice, but the people in there started at me bad. Mostly white people and I'm latina, they looked at me like I was an intruder. I was going to sit down at the end when a man was very rude to me, when I asked if I could sit there next to him. It bothered him me being there and me talking to him. So my one star is not for the place it is for the unfriendly people who goes there.

Charlie Phan

Love this place. Wonderful ambiance, delicious and great presentation! Service is excellent.

Anna Silkwood

I hadn't planned on stopping at this restaurant and I was dressed a little frumpy in shorts and flip flops. Not expecting to be allowed in, I tentatively asked if I could take a spot at the bar. Surprisingly, they said yes! The service was attentive and the food was good. It was expensive ($35-$45 per dish) but it was quality. Their drinks were especially delicious. The irish coffee and espresso martini...mmm. I probably wouldn't come back here for dinner due to the price and not being overly impressed, but I would stop in for dessert and drinks!

Darlyne Rivas-V

This place is very beautiful. Service is great, food is delicious, and worth its price.


Friendly service and excellent menu


I have been coming to "Bra 19" regularly for about a year. Out front and honest here, I do not "eat" there often only because my likeness in food is a bit low-brow. However, I continue to frequent the place because the bar service is phenomenal, everyone from Sydney, Lucio, Chris, Jamesion, Collin, and Val, are always joyful, spirited, and attentive. For me, sitting at the bar requires excellent "bar dynamics"....these guys do it...and do it well. All of them work together to provide great bar service....that is why I continue to frequent the bar. Great bar staff...keep it up!!

Lisa Ochoa

One of my favorite places for french food. The staff was friendly and sociable. The bill was reasonable.

Brandi McCarty

Great food!!! Awesome staff!!

Steve Granda

Not worth putting up with all of the gucci

Adrienne Monroe

Excellent spot for quality french food. Entered near nine, it wasn't busy. The staff was very welcoming and observant. The prices are good for what you get. Food is similar to a cafe in Indianapolis I liked.

Rodney Giles

Five star all around - Future Mayor Buzbee frequents this place which means its good!

Gabriel Jacobson

Nice site for tasty French food. went there on a friday i think. the staff was helpful and kind. the place has an awesome feel to it. mood here reminds me of san diego's scene.

Sanjeev Lahoti

Great place for Sunday brunch with bistro classics like beef tartare and steak frites. The patio sitting area is perfect for spring. Great bloody Marys, mimosas with orange, pomegranate and grape fruit and a pretty wide selection of wines by the glass.

Nick Jennings

visited for restaurant week. the French onion soup was amazing but everything else was lackluster. service was slow. seating is uncomfortable. tableware is awkward. won't be returning.

Jeanie Kincannon

Enjoyed the food and the service!

Trudy Ray

Great service. Beautiful restaurant. The food was okay. It was interesting. I will try it again. But I will order something other than the chicken sandwich.

Al Heilman

Very Trendy bar/restaurant with upscale menus and clientele. Seems like the place to be seen. Good food and service, only downside is the noise.

Erle Gooding

Great service and staff. Food was excellent.

Emily Scarfo

Dear Brasserie Management, I absolutely love your restaurant. It's my go-to anytime my husband and I want to celebrate or a special occasion. My all time favorite dish on the menu was the double cut pork chop. It was literally so delicious, I could not even handle it. Please please please bring it back! I must have it again. Sincerely, Emily

Jeff Dziewior

Great food and service.

Barbara Segun Kunle Ulmer

Very nice food and ambience...

Jeff Burgert

Excellent food and drinks. Pricey, but that's to be expected.

Rafael De Avila

Food was great floor manager last night is an amazing man. The the first server and the lady walking out bread and desserts throwing things on the table is making this experience sub-par. Literally the lady threw the bread on the table and the server look like he could barely stand us, not personable at all (that lady and the first Sever) can’t say that I want to go back. There are other awesome choices with great service the make an “experience” like this worth while. Was going to be 1 start but the manager and food made it 2 impossible to give more than that after that service.

Robert Owen

French food and the setting at this place is super good. Visited Fri evening I think. The service was very kind and attentive. The bill was decent.

Jennifer Carr

French food and the setting at this location is super good. Food was so fresh. Prices were reasonable. Like a restaurant in Washington I liked.

Fabrizio Monti

The Raclette as appetizer is amazing (in the picture)!! Not very impressed by the beef bourguignon, but was my first time so take it as a very personal opinion. Very disappointed instead about my table. I made a reservation online in the morning for the evening, I show up in time, and they place me in the only table available... far in the back, close to the kitchen door.. Romantic date.. good luck.

P Ly

Great food! Ambiance is good too!

Tomas Van Basten

Andy, TJ, & Jose give the best customer service. Banana

Sam Ralston

Beautiful French restaurant, the real deal. Great service, the food is superb. Priced to impress. Last month we were here and I had the halibut with potato crust. It was cooked to perfection. I paired it with a nice easy sancerre.

Rob Dorman

Great eating spot up in Post Oak area. Was there with my car service company. Sterling Luxury Transport.

Alex Hailey

This place has it all a wonderful atmosphere a great place to people-watch and incredible food. You won't be disappointed they have the best beef carpaccio in town here. This is one of the best steakhouses in Houston and a great place to …

Ryan Killian

Three experiences. Three great experiences.

Erin Urban

Excellent food and decent ambiance. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. There was a fair amount of waitstaff that seemed to just cluster around chatting, but I suppose that was because it was rather early still for dinner. I'll definitely be back for the food!

Amanda Carrasco

Fantastic food and great service. Beef carpaccio is my ALL TIME FAV!! Be sure to come visit Sidney and Val behind the bar they are the best!!!!!

Sean Johnson

Food was fantastic and staff were great.

There's valet parking, but otherwise it's sort of limited since this strip is so popular. Located in that uppity shopping area which includes no less than 4 starbucks, barnes & noble, various expensive clothing lines, izakaya wa, sur la table and more is Brasserie 19. I believe this is a part of a line of french restaurants named brasserie including brasserie 1895, brasserie du parc and of course brasserie 19. I have previously been to brasserie du parc (near discovery green) and had a lovely time so thought I would check this one out for brunch as well. On the brunch menu - it is pretty dismal. We ended up ordering from the lunch menu which is served at the same time on weekends. Brunch times on Saturday are 11-3, on sunday are 10-3. Lunch times are 11-3 both days. P.E.I. Mussels - 1lb sauteed with onion, garlic, fennel, tomato, white wine, herbs, baguette. There's a small trip of baguette which comes on top of this dish. This seems to be a theme w/ brasserie 19 - I've seen it on pictures of the escargot as well. Honestly these mussels left something to be desired and was the worst item on the menu of what we ordered. Some were fresh and some were not and had a distinctly bitter and fishy taste. They were also marinated to different degrees. Yellowfin Tuna Tartare - cucumber salad, red onion, preserved lemon aioli, espelette, seeded bread. Delectable. Never had tuna tartare before but definitely did not disappoint. Came with a side of bread baked into crisps. Went well with the tartare and didn't overpower but was a little difficult to eat since they were rather large, hard to break apart and fragile. Similar in quality to the texas tartare at Nobie's. Definitely recommend this. Croque Madame - brioche, french ham, gruyere, bechamel, farm egg and pomme frites Nice, but a little too salty. Not sure if worth $16 as it's just overloaded with pomme frites. The fries were thin and crispy - well seasoned and came with a lovely mayo - I think homemade? The egg on the croque was perfectly cooked with slightly runny yolk. The bread was moist but not falling apart. Ham and bechamel were of excellent quality. Charred Octopus - romesco, piquillo pepper, fingerling potato, wilted spinach, olive oil The bed of vegetables this came on was absolutely delectable. The octopus was soft and juicy. Not chewy at all and had a lovely flavor - the skin was very well seasoned but not over-salted. One of the best dishes we tried here. Dunlavy Rose $8 Sweet but not too much so - cheapest rose by the glass. The wine menu came out on an iPad. Service was rather quick and relatively friendly. Took away the plates without asking if we wanted a to-go box. Wasn't much left but we had some croque, fries, and mussels left and would have liked to take them home - don't like to waste. Total was $97 before tip which seems like a great deal for 4 relatively high-end dishes with drinks.

Donna Lawrence

Great service and food

Andrew Sarofim

Sat down for a family brunch. Omelets were excellent for American standard. They have wonderful, warm bread served to the table, which shouldn't be missed. Strong menu with something for everyone done to a high standard. Oysters, burgers, fish, steak and salads.

Ellie Hamilton

Filet cooked perfectly. Excellent attention by wait staff!

Monica Parrillo

Excellent food but a few unfortunate mistakes from the kitchen prevent me giving five stars. They forgot to bring out my husbands side dish, and later only brought out one dessert. The waiter graciously apologized and we took it in stride, but I would expect better given the price point. We will go back and give it a second try though, as all the food was fantastic. If you’re looking for a quiet meal this isn’t the place, the acoustics are quite loud. But for a midweek treat it was fine.

Coraline Wheeler

I always enjoy my visits to this restaurant. Service is always fast, friendly and top notch. Food is delicious and beautifully plated. Scallops are hands down the best I've ever had. Wine selections and pricing are impressive. Definitely a place to enjoy people watching.

Caitlyn Keller

Wow crazy how I came back and my comment was deleted . Very disappointed in the way you handle things ! Well I’ll make sure to share again! Me and my fiancé had a great time but the service wasn’t that great! I feel it’s because we were young and knowing in the food business when you see younger people you assume they don’t tip well. Shouldn’t ever assume! But our server who’s name I won’t say took at least 15-20 minutes to always come back ! It was to the point we had to keep asking another server to serve us! He’d take awhile to bring drinks and bread etc. and when the food was served mine in particular wasn’t that hot , it was warm but It seems it had been sitting awhile . Very unprofessional how my comment was handled .

Sajjad Khan

French food and the scene here is super good. Service is always awesome even when they have a full house. The staff was friendly and observant. Bring your hunger - portions are generous. Feels similar to a cafe in Chicago I loved.

Aimee Bass

Excellent place for delicious French food. Great place to meet and catch up with friends. Service is typically above par. Prices were average for the menu.

achim Scheurer

I was here, food is terrible, do they changed they chef? Very unfriendly restaurant manager, front of the house. Blond skinny girl with glasses. She has a absolutely horrible attitude.Arrogant and snappy, as she would own the place. My friends and I left the place after a short time of visiting. I would not recommend to dine or get served here. Save your time, plenty great restaurant in Houston.


Nice staff. Salad had the perfect amount of dressing. Pecan Crusted Trout was cooked perfectly. Grean beans were seasoned good and brussel sprouts were delicious. Never been a fan of brussel sprouts, but this restaurant changed my mind with good char & great flavor. Nice place for happy hour, a date, or to catch up with friends.

Donna Zwink

Drinks great. Staff funny. Great place. Go!

David Sanders

Need more bacon in BLT, used to have alot! Hot, but when asked manager turned on A/C

Laura van Zyl

A lovely French bistro in the heart of Houston. We’ve visited 4 times in the last 2 weeks. The food is delicious and the staff are so kind and friendly. They really go the extra mile. The restaurant is always full of happy people, creating a lovely buzz. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner. You can sit outside but we prefer inside where it is air conditioned but not ice cold.
