    Food was excellent, as usual. The service by Kevin was exceptional, as we were on a short time schedule. He asked all the right questions and delivered dishes in perfect time and as requested. The noise level at first was excessive due to a large party of overserved women. As that group thinned out, the ambience became more conducive to conversation.

    The food was outstanding and the service was great. Atmosphere was a bit frenetic. It is an interesting combination of crowded bar scene and nicer restaurant food/prices. Takes some getting used to, but good experience overall.

    Consistently delicious food, positive energy, and great service. Alec, our waiter did a fine job of serving with the perfect amount of attentiveness without hovering. It’s always a treat to dine here and so enjoy having Alec has our server.

    This is my absolute favorite restaurant in Houston. Everything was exceptional during last night’s dinner including the ambience, service, food, and wine. My favorite thing about Brasserie 19 is their attentive waitstaff. I appreciate their hard work and effort to make my celebratory dinner special. Thank you so much, Brasserie 19!

    We had a table near the bar with great views of the multiple TVs playing football. Made me feel like I was eating in a high priced sports bar. The people watching is far more interesting than the food. Good place to meet up with some friends at the bar but not adequate if you are looking for a French restaurant.

    We sat for long periods with no service for drinks, menus, ordering etc. I have enjoyed eating at this restaurant it has always been first class. Brought my son last night to celebrate his new job. Needless to say it will be awhile before I return. The food as always was excellent.

    Our server on 8/29 was excellent! Same for the wines-by-the glass selection. We were there on a rainy day at a time a bit on the early side even for happy hour time, so there restaurant was not very busy. And B19 did not disappoint. I would like to see more small bites/shared plates offered that are not raw-bar-focused. But otherwise we had a lovely time and plan to return!

    Energetic, lively scene with a cast of characters. At Brasserie 19 it is more important on being seen, what is being worn, who you are with than it is about the simple, poorly executed menu items.

    Ordered Niçoise salad- terrible! Certainly not the same as it used to be. The tina was not very good, the greens soggy and green beans not fresh. Served with 1/4 of a hard boiled egg. This was my entree ($34) it’s no longer on the salad menu. I would not order again nor recommend it. My guest ordered the salmon and again, it was raw inside, not cooked as requested. What’s happened to B19?? The food used to be great. Same guest ordered a steak a week prior and it was not tough. She won’t eat steak at B19 again. Has the kit hen changed for much?

    This place is wonderful for a place to sit and talk. They don't hurry you up to leave and let you stay and talk. The carpet and table cloths really cut down on the noise and they don't have the stereo blaring so you can't hear your friend. I wish the menu had a few more smaller portions. The Caesar salad was good, but the full leaves were very hard to deal with, please cut them smaller. I wasn't really happy with the escargot, it was almost impossible to get out of the shells. But we will definitely go back, because as I said, it's a great place to be able to talk business or just gab!

    Everything was absolutely wonderful. The only thing was the manager whispered to my daughter and asked if he should do cotton candy for my birthday and my daughter told him yes, he said ok, let's make it a surprise. Then he forgot I guess. It really didn't matter to me, but my daughter was bummed. Otherwise, everything was outstanding.

    The prices here are just too high. We got expensive deviled eggs that were very very average. We got an order of scallops for an appetizer, and 3 small scallops came out on the order. The kale salads were good. We left rather hungry and dissatisfied. An expensive lunch for sure!

    Sunday brunch. Everything was delicious and the restaurant was very lively and energetic. Love a restaurant where everyone is having a great time. Service was exceptional. Very large staff to accommodate the packed restaurant. We had eggs Benedict and it was outstanding. Look forward to going again. This restaurant would be fun for any occasion.

    The food was amazing! We went during Houston’s Restaurant Weeks and I tried the Arugula salad, Trout Almondine, and Crème brûlée and they were all perfectly prepared and delicious. The only thing lacking was the service, maybe because it was a very busy Saturday dinner time. One of my friends only ordered something small from the main menu and then wanted to order something extra. We asked multiple times to two waiters to bring the menu again or tell us about the dishes and they kept forgetting the menu or saying: “Be right back” and not showing again. I still want to think it was because it was very busy, so just heads up.
