    Just what I was looking for. Our evening began with the complimentary valet parking. Then, from John our Bartender to Jim our waiter...we were greeted and treated with the service royalty or our President would expect. All were friendly and attentive; there if we needed them. The service was the best I have experienced in some time. The food from appetizer to entree to dessert was heavenly. It is a meal that I will remember for awhile and can't wait to return to enjoy again. It is a place that I would love to share with my special friends and loved ones. It was our first visit, so we were given a gift card to use at a future time. Again, they pay attention to the smallest detail.

    We went for our anniversary. The atmosphere was great and staff very accommodating. We are not big meat eaters so had ahi tuna.It was not the best we have had but what can you expect from a steak house. After the meal was the real shocker, the check. The value for the money was a disaster. This is not New York City, this is Texas.

    I will say I am a Kirby's longtime patron. I don't know if they have decided to change the ambience or character to compete with the new development of the mall, but it isn't working. I go to Kirby's for a romantic dinner and great steaks. Not a loud bar & very badly cooked steak. I spend around 350 to 400 dollars a visit. this visit was the worst steaks ever had at Kirbys. I ordered black and blue and Pittsburgh. I had the cowboy cut ribeye, new york strip and a filet mignon. None were charred and they all were cooked the same, bad. No char, the steaks were very tough. The bar room door stayed open most of the night then live band started. smoking in the bar made its way into the dining room, terrible. will have to think about returning

    We usually love our dinner at Kirby's, however this time nothing seemed right!! They asked if we were celebrating something, (when you thell them you get desert) I told them it was my birthday and got nothing!! So why ask. Our meal was luke warm, my husbands entree Shrimp Scampi had no flavor, hope it was just a bad night!!

    Often frequent fine dining steak houses. Have always seen this when going to the WLands ~40 miles from our home but decided to mark it off the list. Impressive steak and seafood tower, BD greeting directly from the Manager along with a BDay card that enclosed a $20 gift certificate for our next visit. Now to what I feel they need to improve! Waiter was slow responding... we sat with empty cocktails and found ourselves waiting on him to take our order as he shuffled by several times. Then the bar was hoping, which allows smoking that unfortunately fumigates the non-smoking dining room and hits you right when you walk in the door. Hardly accepted in this price range for fine dining. Smokers OUTSIDE!

    I was disappointed with the quality of the food. The steak was fine; the salad, vegetables, and dessert were okay. Our service was slow and it was often difficult to get the waiter's attention. For the amount of money charged, the evening was very disappointing. I do not recommend Kirby's Prime Steak House.

    My wife and I came to celebrate her 65th birthday. The setting, atmosphere, food and most of all, the service was much more than we had hoped for. After telling the gentleman servicing us the purpose of the day and the meal. It just got better we were transported to a total comfortable posture with some exchange of how both customer and servicer had arrived at our table on this night and still learned about the menu offering, how it would be served and the assurance we would be well pleased with our choices. Shay was most knowledgeable and helpful but most of all made us feel at home. Yes we paid for the food and service but Kirby's did not treat us as just one more but as the special one's of the night.

    Overall the experience was "okay" - this was our first time there and to be honest I expected more for the $$$$$ - place was crowded, loud and the food was okay (had the $$$$$ steak). Certainly you'll probably need to experience yourself...there are tons of restaurants in The Woodlands that are just as nice and less $$$$.

    We usually chose Perry's for special occasions but we decided to change this time and celebrate our 17 Wedding anniversary at Kirby's. The ambiance and location was outstading and then service was good. When we got our food we thought :is the chef off today? The steakk my husband ordered didnt have any flavor and the fish I ordered was burnt, the sides were not fantastic I mean the food tasted as if we were eating at a two star restaurant. We usually order desert but we decided not to as we had a "bad taste" of the main course. Very dissapointing. I highly recoomend that Kirby's evaluate what their competition are offering and improve on their food. We decided to stick with Perry's as their food is amazing and tasty.

    I took my cousins and aunt and uncle here for their 35th wedding anniversary. The service was very attentive, and unlike many other steak houses the noise level at dinnertime was perfect -- a vibrant scene but by no means noisy. Steaks were delicious as were all the sides we ordered. Our waitress even overheard us talking about the anniversary occasion and, without us having asked, brought my aunt and uncle a special cake after dinner. That was an extremely thoughtful touch and very much appreciated.

    We were asked if we were celebrating a special experience and, in fact we were. We were surprised when they gave my wife a birthday card. We loved the service, appetizers and especially the steak entrees. Then we were surprised again with a complimentary birthday cake for dessert. We are definitely planning to go again and would recommend Kirby's to our friends.

    Experienced and professional waitstaff makes a difference. One star dropped for an overpowering bernaise sauce which killed the flavors of leeks, saffron and oysters. The lamb chops hiwever, were OUTSTANDING! While we are regular Open Table diners, this was our first Kirby's visit and on a wedding anniversary. We were cared for in a very nice way and made to feel special. Kudos and thanks to manager and staff, not forgetting chef for those amazing lamb chops.

    We had a great dinner on a quiet Sunday night a couple of weeks ago. The food was excellent. We took advantage of the half priced bottles of wine. Our only complaint is that our server was a little too chatty once dinner was served. We were in the midst of our meal and this person would come over and repeatedly asked if this or that this or that dish wasn't absolutely amazing and then lingering. Maybe I was just grumpy. Bottom line, great place, gorgeous decor excellent food.

    My first Kirby's experience was at the DFW location and it was great. However, this is the second time I have tried the Woodlands location - my steak was a bad cut of meat and poorly cooked. I prefer Pittsburgh and had to send back due to cold raw meat and cold fat served to me. I will not be back to this location. However, my wine selection was fantastic and served at a perfect temperature.

    great bar and has a view outside to help forget you are in the Woodlands. Cigars ok in bar a rarity these days. However service was horrible. We had 9 people and we were stuck in a table in the middle of a very very noisy room. You could barely hear one person...no way to follow several people. the waiter was gone for uncomfortably long periods. Turns out he was seen going into a private dining room as well! Don't give a guy two large parties. Steak is not real USDA prime and prices high without this value. Don't go unless you want to eat in a noisy bar and don't care about money.
