    As usual the food was exceptional. Sat upstairs for the first time. Outstanding space but so cold you could hang beef. Despite requesting them to raise the thermostat, couldn't get it right all night. Got a bit better for a few minutes and then back to Arctic conditions. Both appetizers and main courses delivered to wrong table and food for others delivered to us. Wait staff placed food at incorrect seat locations when they did finally deliver. We love the good and ambiance in general, but the servers need training. Need to do better if restaurant wants to be recognized as consistently excellent.

    Enjoyed a great meal at Jaspers on Saturday night. Really good food, not overly large American portions. Excellent service. Tiny criticism was bread served before meal - was standard, off the shelf baguette, and not in-line with quality of rest of meal. Other than that, great and would highly recommend it.

    Everything was wonderful from the hospitality of the hostess and server to the food. Baby back ribs fell right off the bone and the potato salad is the best I have ever ate. The caramel ala mode is delicious! The only thing I would like to see is a larger wine selection.

    We ordered asparagus and mixed vegetables. The asparagus was burned and dried out and the mixed veggies were blah. Our bill was almost $40.00. I have been to Jaspers before and it was much better. Unfortunately your last experience is the one that stays with you. We will probably never return. Our server tried very hard and was attentive. Thanks to him for good service.

    We chose Jasper's for a nice family dinner with our two grown sons.So on a warm but lovely summer evening we were anticipating a relaxed adult meal. Instead we sat down and asked for sparkling water and a wine list while we looked at the menu. The waiter took our orders and we received our appetizers within minutes, even before our wine . We asked the waiter to please slow down the service to which he replied that our entrees would go in as soon as he took our appetizer plates. I was surprised at his lack of responsiveness to a request.Our food was nicely done, but our entire evening was colored by the fast-food speed and lack of service. I would think again about planning a nice occasion here,swe would go instead to local favorite Flemings

    In twelve years of living in the Woodlands I've only been to Jaspers 3x. This time I ordered the wedge salad and it came out limp, warm and over-saturated with dressing - yuch. Japsers may be an anchor restaurant for Marketstreet but the attention to food quality is really poor especially in reflection to what they charge.

    Dined at Jasper's on a summer Sunday evening with my wife and nine-year-old daughter. We sat in a booth. The room was romantically lit, with soft music adding to the ambiance. The decor was modern and uncluttered. My wife and daughter shared the ribs, which are a specialty here. I had a southwestern trout dish, which was outstanding. We ordered gouda mac-and-cheese and smoked onion creamed spinach as sides. The mac-and-cheese was a nicely complicated affair, generously laced with small strips of ham. The spinach was fresh, with small, whole leaves with a creamed sauce that was very tasty. We over did it ordering desserts. They are called "minis" but some are not so "mini"! Can't wait to eat here again. The service was amazing!

    Jaspers was suggested to us. Get the chips to start. My wife got the special, I got the ribs. Both were above expectations. We also had the rocky road ice cream cookies for dessert. Definitely worth it. The service was great, not too pushy but not absent. Jaspers made for a perfect anniversary dinner.

    This is my go-to lunch spot in the Woodlands for a business lunch. I always start with a Potato chip appetizer for the table, and the homemade lemonade makes one of the best Arnold Palmers in town. The quesadillas or salad entres are excellent for a light lunch and the daily spcials are always intriguing.

    Table waiter very attentive and accommodating for special needs. Food was great. Wine in bottles is expensive, even for moderate quality reds. Wines by glass are very expensive. Food came out timely and as ordered. Hostess was very friendly, gave us a choice of tables. Bar tender service is lousy. Personnel standing around and talking, not proactive to bar customers at all. This restaurant is very pricey, commensurate with the setting in the market Street area, and the food definitely lives up to that, but the overall quality of establishment service can use some improvement.

    Loved the decor and the feel of the place. Service was hard to beat as well, waiter was friendly. Our only rub, was we got the ribs and they were way too spicy for us. It tasted like the ribs had been sitting awhile and then they rubbed the spiciest spices on top of them and we could taste those spices, but the taste of the meat was not apparent. Maybe it was just so busy or maybe we just do not appreciate the spice like some folks would. Next time we would get the ribs 'plain' I suppose. Great place for a date or group of folks...excellent drinks (albet pricey)

    We went before a concert and valet parked in the center and then walked over to the Pavillion after dinner. Everything was delicious and the service was great. The shrimp and grits appetizer was fabulous, but a little pricey for only 2 shrimp. The Red ruby martini was fantastic as well. We will definitely visit again if we are in the area.

    We have been dining at Jasper's since it opened in The Woodlands. The food is always dependable and the service Saturday night was great. We had made reservations to coordinate with the end of our movie. In this case we got taken upstairs to a room that was more like a warehouse. No ambiance what so ever. It made us wish we had gone to Hubble and Hudson Bistro instead. We will hesitate to go again unless it is for cocktails on the patio.
