Diner Reviews
  • "the service was horrible and food at best mediocre"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The food and service are consistently good every time we frequent there. We try new dishes and if we do not care for it they immediately change it out at no additional costs. Their service is one of the best in town."

  • "My boyfriend and I eat here a few times a month (he loves the Peking Duck) and everything I have tried (pad thai, orange chicken, shrimp fried rice, egg flower soup, etc) has been excellent. A few times we have gone, there has been a somewhat long wait, which usually stems from the duck taking longer than most orders, but a few times we have been left wondering where our server has gone just to refill our drinks, bring out an appetizer, etc. Most of the servers though, are friendly, attractive young people who really do aim to please. We generally get in without a wait with out reservations, as well. A great spot overall!"

  • "This place is fantastic. it's our second time there and it didn't disappoint. The Korean BBQ dishes are a real treat. Also get some of that cole slaw if you get a chance."

  • "It was a little too cold with the air conditioning. Ended up covering my wife with a napkin. The food was ok nothing exceptional. Couple next to us kept sending their drink back to the bar. We had wine and beer. The white wine was less than cool but the beer was ok."

  • "It's great to have Howard Wang's in Southlake. Always a good time and meal."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I noticed in other reviews that patrons complained about the food lacking flavor. We had the same experience, from the hot and sour soup, to the mooshi pork to the noodle dish. We asked for and received some hot sauces which helped considerably but something was still missing. The portions were generous, looked very good, but just didn't have the taste that good Chinese does. We were there early on a Sunday evening, it was not crowded, but it seemed to take forever for each item to arrive. Doubt we'll ever go back."

  • "We went for Mother's Day and really enjoyed ourselves. The food was very authentic and the service was exceptional. We were treated very well and the hostesses were also very friendly."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "My 1st visit to this place on a Sun eve was very pleasant. The booth inside were not as comfortable not to mention the party with loud kids next to us so we opted to go outside. Outside seating is recommended and our server Toni was fantastic. He was very attentive. The food was very good and we enjoyed the schezuan calamari, the spicy basil noodles, among others are worth a try. Certainly will go back here."

  • "I've been here several times now, food is consistently good & the service is friendly and attentive. The mango ice cream is a favorite of my kids, and I find the entrees not overly salty."

  • "Dinner was great! Even got to meet Howard Wang! Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Southlake."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Incredible. The bartender/waiter took charge and led us to the perfect dish mixed with perfect cocktails. Not a big crowd the night we went, making it the perfect place to hang out and talk at the bar. Run, don't walk, to Howard Wang's."

  • "Great service and food! Presentation was spectacular. Would highly recommend."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We have been to Howard Wangs for dinner before and had an unbelievable experience with great food and pretty good service. We chose to have a Sunday lunch and it was not the same. Service was very slow and the entrees were lackluster at best. The egg rolls and chicken satays were tasty, but took a while to get. We were never offered sweetener for tea until another waitress came by. We rarely saw our waiter and it wasn't even that busy. We ordered the Singapore Rice Noodles with shrimp and it was absolutely flavorless. We have ordered it before and was much better. I'm not sure what happened this time. I plan on giving Howard's one more shot since we had such a good time our first go round."

  • "This was our second dinner at HW's. We enjoy the variety of selections on the menu. There is always something for everyone and always something new to try. The quality of the food is outstanding and the environment is very appealing especially in the back room with its curtains. Our service was likewise very good. Our server was attentive and when we had a question about the usage of MSG, the manager came over to explain where it was used and where it wasn't. Very helpful and very transparent. Overall HW's is a cut above its competition and I'd recommend it highly. We'll certainly be back and bring more of our friends."

  • "Had tried to visit before and was rudely turned away due to a lack of reservation. Made a reservation this time & was immediately seated in the bar, which we thought was weird. But the service at the table was great; our waiter walked us through the menu to explain the distinctions and was very prompt with food and drinks. The food, however, was just okay. We ordered a whole bunch of different dishes to get a good sampling and found most of them to just be okay. Everything we ordered had good flavor but was overcooked - steam buns, pork belly, seafood, and even tempura were all tough. Can't say that we'll go back, especially at the price."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Our group of eight was totally pleased with our dining experience. The service, food and atmosphere was perfect. Only two of us had been here before, and the others were pleasantly surprised and mentioned they will definitely return."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Our food was very good, but our waitress rushed our service! I was still eating as she began clearing the table, i.e. Picking up dishes reaching across my plate. The bill was brought without asking us about dessert. We had to ask for coffee. What would have been a nice evening with friends, was rushed! Again, the dishes were very good, but we do expect better service."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This was our first time here. We were pleasantly surprised by our experience. We made reservations on Open Table in the afternoon for later that evening. Prior to our reservation time we were contacted by the restrauant. They asked if we would like to sit on the patio that evening due to the pleasant weather. We agreed, which is unusual for us. The outside experience was great. Generally around here you are going to get a view of the parking lot, which was not the case, nor could you hear the traffic noise from 1709. The food was excellent. We left there raving about one of our new favorite restaurants."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "By far one of the top restaurants in Southlake that is light years ahead of other restaurants attempts at doing Chinese/Asian cuisine. Start of the night with a cocktail from the best bartender in DFW, Sage, and then order some dumplings and/or potstickers for an appetizer. My favorite is the spicy Szechwan wonton...game changer. Then branch out and try the Peking Duck, Vanilla Prawns, and my favorite, Wang's Beef Tenderloin! This place will not disappoint!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Howard Wangs has always been one of my favorites for gourmet Asian food in a sophisticated, comfortable environment. The Southlake location is no exception to that. We had a wonderful dining experience."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I have been a patron of Howard Wang's since he opened his location at Northwest Highway and Midway in Dallas. The restaurant in Southlake is beautiful. The menu is more extensive than his other location and the food was very good. I'd recommend checking it out if you live in the area."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We were seated right at our reservation time, service was prompt and the food was excellent!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "We drove about 45 minutes to get to the place (random pick in the metroplex) and if it was closer, we'd probably go again. As it was the food was really good/interesting Asian fusion and the decor was really nice. But... I think we prefer to stick to the classics."

  • "Wanted weekend was coming and tired of the same old places. Wife suggested Howard Wang's. Glad we went. The food was excellent."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "We had a family dinner with my wife brother, mother in law and a few friends. We have dined here before and the service was always excellent for lunch so my wife was excited about celebrating her birthday here. Our group was 8 people, so a large table but not anything they couldn't have serviced adequately. We waited 15 min before our waiter approached the table and it went down hill from there. The food was outstanding and warm but there was no follow up on drinks, no appetizers served, our waiter at the end dropped off the check without asking if we wanted dessert, which we did because it was a birthday celebration. A complete disaster for her special night. It will be a long while before we go back on an evening."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "If you are looking for decent, americanized Chinese food, you've found the spot. Ingredients appear to be fresh and the recipes are the traditional favorites that we've come to love."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We couldn't help but compare HW's to PF Changs. The menu is perhaps more of what you would expect from the traditional American "Chinese" restaurant, but there are many similarities, including the prices. Much more expensive than your average Chinese - and while we loved the service and the atmosphere, the food was not quite as good as we expected. It was good, but not exceptional. Next time we want to pay a lot for Chinese, we'll go to PF Changs."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Surprisingly, the food is pretty authentic Asian. The bar scene was also hopping and Sage the Bartender knows everyone! He will prepare you a drink that he chooses and it's never the same drink twice. Pretty cool place."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Great waiter - he was attentive and quick to take care of us. The egg flower soup was delicious, and we were glad to have enough of our orange peel beef to take home, it was quite tender. Tall booths are so straight, they're uncomfortable. Desperately wanted a pillow behind my back!"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "We'd heard good comments about this restaurant. We were very disappointed. The crab was so salty, despite being a 5-pepper crab, that it was not fit to eat. The lobster appetizer was fishy. The fried duck was a bit on the dry side. The steamed buns that accompanied several of the dishes were doughy and heavier than expected. Just not what we expected or had hoped to enjoy."
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "If you live in Texas but crave NE authentic Chinese food this is by far the best. The staff is also willing to work around any dietary needs. Howard Wangs is a must try"
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Booked reservation on a mid week day indicating it was for a birthday celebration and the host sat us in a half full dining room immediately next to the service hallway for the servers. Food outstanding and the service team spot on. On departure the hosts were sitting down playing on their cell phones."
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "This was our second time to HW and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. We celebrated my husband's daughter's birthday with her husband and 2 year old. Upon our arrive, the table was ready with high chair. We enjoyed one our fav bottles of wine. No appetizer . . . big mistake, as getting our meals took a little long for a Sunday evening than was expected; however, food was excellent! Restaurant is very child-friendly. Great waiter."
