The restaurant had a live jazz band, but it was too loud. The food was excellent and the prices were reasonable.

Second time there and was not disappointed. I took a friend for the first time and they too were very pleased. The portions were outrageous...nobody went home hungry,that's for sure. Great lunch the next day,ha!
This is becoming one of our favorite restaurants in The Woodlands

Wonderful food, service was very good - definitely will go back! Owner was very attentive to all patrons, making the rounds several times. One of our favorite places, go every time we're in Houston.

This restaurant was just what
This restaurant was just what I needed. Being a new orleans native it was nice to have a little piece of home. Food was excellent and authentic to new orleans. Ambiance was great! Not too quiet but not too loud. Decor was fantastic. Had the feel of an upscale swanky piano bar type. Prices were spot on for the portions. Overall I would reccomend this restaurant for the perfect date or a family outing. The one thing id suggest to the restaurant is to play some jazz music I think that touch would be perfect for this place!

Excellent Easter Brunch!
I took my wife to Easter Brunch on 3/31/2013. She had the duck and I had the crab cakes benedict. Both were excellent. I had ordered flowers to be delivered to the restaurant using one of OpenTable's partners. The flowers were delivered the night before and the owner graciously put them in the refrigerator then had them out on our table when we arrived. The wait staff was similarly excellent.

a somewhat hidden gem
Schilleci's is almost lost among the bigger name Market Street restaurants, but it is truly a wonderful spot. We recently took a party of 10 and had a blast. Our table was ready on time because of a lingering party, but the owners kept us informed and worked hard to getit ready. The service was very good, but on a busy night not quiet excellent. However, the food more than made up for any small problems we encountered. All 10 people loved their meal and each thanked me for the recommendation. We will of course be back.

Nice small outdoor dining area
My party was in from Michigan for a business trip to Houston. We had spent alot of time trying to decide between a BBQ type resturant or Cajun. Cajun won, and we were not disapointed with our choice.

A Taste of Home for Mother's Day
Took the wife and kids here for Mother's Day and it was great! Better than expected by far!! Most places that claim to be a New Orleans restaurant in the Houston/Humble/Woodlands area are anything but, Schilleci's is right up there with any other restaurant on Bourbon Street or St. Charles. We would know since it is our hometown of 44 years.

Great Mother's Day Brunch!
With reservations, they happily accommodated a party of 10 for Mother's Day brunch with ease. Food was excellent and service was great! Even the children enjoyed it. It's pricey but expected when you dine at a restaurant with this quality of food, service and ambiance. This is exactly what we wanted for Mother's day - to be treated like special guests instead of herded like cattle through a chain restaurant. Will definitely return next time we are in the Woodlands!!!

Enjoy the experience
I took my husband for his birthday. He really enjoyed the meal. Actually, they had us a table reserved by the window, but my husband choose to eat outside.It was very nice.

Pre-movie meal spot in the Woodland
The owner's and wait staff could not be more friendly or helpful. Cajun inspired selections dominate the menu but there are several nice entrees from which to choose. We like the quiet and friendly atmosphere and it's close proximity to Market Street.

Wait staff were kind but did not know the menu very well. I asked if the item I ordered had cheese. He indicated it had very little. Being lactose intolerant I can handle small amounts of cheese. My stuffed shrimp were loaded with cheese. I was with a client and did not want to make a fuss so I managed to eat several. After our meal I asked my clients what they thought of the food and they both said it was a 2 out of 5. I might give Schilleci one more try as one visit should not determine the value of the restaurant.

Service and food top notch
Food was awesome but Corey and Steve made the evening extra special with personal, friendly service.

Genuine Louisiana Food
Like an upscale neighborhood restaurant in New Orleans. Genuine Louisiana food in a world of imitators. This is what Louisiana food should be. And the selection of other items, not specifically N.O. is excellent and well prepared. I went for my birthday, and decided, I will not wait until another birthday to visit again.
The wine list is limited, but well selected and well priced.

Consistently good- friendly staff.
My wife, myself, and our four kids, have been there on several occasions. The New Orleans style food is always consistent, and good (although it can run a little slow when there's a big concert or event at The Pavilion). But the constant presence of the owner greeting and checking on the tables, and (I believe) his wife greeting and seating guests, makes it feel like a family run, neighborhood restaurant anywhere you may have grown up. In an area that's dominated by sterile, overpriced chain restaurants, this is a welcome change and always worth a visit.

Authentic and Delicious!
I have been wanting to try this restaurant for sometime and finally made reservations for a Friday night.. The atmosphere and service were very good and the food was delicious.
It was so authentic, I brought my mom (New Orleans native) along for lunch the next day. She was excited to find a little piece of home.
The little extras like Gambino's bread made it all the more authentic.
I found my new favorite restaurant in The Woodlands.

Dinner was wonderful! Party
Dinner was wonderful! Party of 8 and everyone loved their food! Celebrating my father's birthday and the attention was very nice.

Best Service Award
I recently went here with my 4 children for lunch (ages 9-20) and we not only enjoyed the food, but found this to be the finest service we have gotten at any restaurant in the woodlands. The staff was so friendly and attentive, it made us feel special and it wasn't even a special occasion. Our family eats out a lot, and my husband and I Frequently attend business dinners at high-end restaurants. This service beat all if those, hands down.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent menu and prep with solid experienced servers.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
After a long loud day dinner at Schilleci's is a restorative, extremely satisfying pause. For the nearly four years we have lived in this area we have been looking for restaurants that provide not only unique and excellent food but also an environment where adults can have a real conversation with the meal, absent blaring music or having to talk over the crowd. To date Schilleci's is the only one to provide both. Each time we go I try something different off the menu and have never been disappointed, much to choose from, wonderful flavors, and generous portions. Add to this gracious owners, and an attentive staff and we find the makings of a great evening. We will continue to be regulars and share what we have found with our friends.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food. Excellent service even accomadating a party of eight. The owner came to check on us once our meals had arrived. Would eat there again whenever I catch a concert at the Woodlands Pavillion since it is right across the street from it.

Great food and amazing service
I took my wife out for her birthday and reserved a table using open table. This was not our first time to dine here but first using open table to reserve a table. Was thoroughly impressed that from the start we walk in and had the best table reserved with a RESERVED sign on top. Was a nice touch that never happens at any other restaurants. Our server was amazing and sorry do not recall his name but they informed us he is from Baton Rouge. Anyway, the gator strips as an appetizer was a first for us and a must try. Highly recommend for anyone interested in Cajun food but even if you don't they have specials that are amazing

Good Atmosphere and food
Everything we had was great (blackened tilapia, chicken and sausage gumbo and a crawfish dip to start). We showed up early for our reservation and they sat us right away, the whole time the wait staff was very friendly and personable.

Simply elegant Southern food
Schilleci's is a favorite amongst my co-workers. The owners are personable and gracious. The service is efficient and they serve you with those famous Zapp's chips upon reaching your table - so yummy! What I like most about this restaurant is the well-presented, fresh versions of all the Louisiana classic dishes plus a seasonal, special menu that showcases their original take on some traditional dishes. You can't go wrong with the fried catfish or seafood salad.

Excellent Cajun Seafood
Went to dinner before concert at CWP. Conveniently located across from pavilion and parking garage. Food was perfectly seasoned and waiter was very attentive. Highly rated and very right so. Just found dining spot anytime we visit woodlands.

Warm and Inviting
Schilleci's was a very warm and inviting restaurant. We loved the atmosphere and decor, but they didn't hold a candle to the food!
Everything we ordered was outstanding (and there were 6 of us), including the desserts. The outdoor patio looked like a nice place to have a Sunday Brunch, but it was raining when we were there, so didn't get to try it out. We will definitely be returning every time were are in town to visit our kids!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great New Orleans Food!
We had dinner there for the first time on a Friday night with some friends
Everything that we had was very good and we will definitely return! Be sure
To have the bread pudding for desert it was delicious!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were placed at a table we did not care for but were moved to a different spot with no fuss. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was excellent and the great service continued throughout the evening. Highly recommended.

Great Food OK Service
Blackened talapia: very good, flavorful and cooked to perfection (could have been spicier). Dessert was Chocolate Lava cake (very good) and Mixed Fruit Cobbler. Surprise! the Fruit was dried apricots and dates (which I don't usually care for)...HOWEVER, the overall effect was delicious!!! I loved it!!! Light, phylo-type "crust" and high quality vanilla ice cream pulled it all together beautifully. After dinner coffee drink was Bourbon Street Coffee; super yummy by the way (taste, then ask what was in it; you'll be surprised). Service: owners were friendly and welcoming, our waiter was not particularly attentive, but a neighboring waiter were very friendly and helpful so I gave service an overall good. Loved the food/ Will Return!

New Fav in Woodlands!
We had a great time celebrating my husband's birthday there with another couple before a concert close by. The owner, Wayne, made a point to introduce himself and tell us about the restaurant. The food was awesome and the staff were helpful and prompt. The waiter did ask us if we were attending an event so as to help in the timing of the food. We plan to go back for sure!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is very good. The specials are always a good bet. The beignets are delicious, save room! A good place to meet friends and enjoy a meal. It's not too loud for a party of four.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love dining at Schilleci's! Food is always memorable. The Barramundi entree was awesome but the cobbler dessert was TO DIE FOR!! And I am not a dessert person. Enjoyable evening.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never knew it was there!
A small hole in the wall that you never know was there if you visit Market Street area but never go off on any of the little side streets. When we first walked in the restaurant was empty but by the time we left it was full. I'd have to agree with some of the previous posts that their prices are a bit high, but the food was exceptional (except the dry horrible French Bread...defiantly not made in house) We had fried calamari for an appetizer, seafood platter for dinner, and the bread pudding for dessert that was highly recommended. We also got a bottle of wine. And the whole bill came to roughly $100.

A taste of Louisiana
Enjoyed a very relaxing evening of wonderful Cajun cuisine. The atmosphere was pleasant after a great day of shopping.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall great dining experience
Our party of 4 really enjoyed our experience here. The food selection was great with both Cajun and non-Cajun items available. The meals arrived and we all ate every bite. 3 of us had the Grouper specials but prepared differently and they were excellent. We finished with a bread pudding that was perfect in every way. Our service was excellent and accommodating. I definitely recommend giving Shillaci's a try.

A breath of fresh air.
Schilleci's was a most pleasant surprise. We had just been in New Orleans for a week and I must say the food "taste and presentation" was superior to some of the highly rated hot spots in New Orleans. The greatness of this establishment is the service and great at home feel that was genuinely presented; made us feel welcome as a guest. Not all restaurants do this, very few do it well!! The menu represents an under priced bargain. Our choices were all delicious and of extremely high quality. Highly recommend and will certainly return when back in The Woodlands.
Thank you for a great experience.

Black Friday treat
While everyone else went home to soak their shopping feet, took the opportunity to treat ourselves to a girls night dinner at Schelleci's. Best part is that they're on Open Table so you know you'll get a seat. 2nd best part is that the food is really good!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Get Together Place
We had a group of 9. Our server was wonderful and took care of all of us. It was quiet in there so we were able to talk to each other and hear the conversations. The food was excellent as well. I had the Blackened Tilapia and we also shared the Gator appetizer which was very good.
