    Really great food- had the fried oysters, which were some of the best I have had- not too much breading. Had Baramundi, which I have not had since my last trip to Australia, which was perfectly cooked and served to us piping hot! Will definitely return to this cozy, friendly restaurant!

    my wife and I wanted to try a new place in The Woodlands and found this gem through the Open Table app. We got close by GPS but had to call the restaurant and advised to leave our car right where it was in the super market parking lot, since there was a concert that night. We were greeted by the owner with a heavy New Orleans drawl and his wife. The service was great as was the food. We'll definitely return.

    "Faux cajun" is how I would describe the food I had. No shrimp or seafood gumbo is available, only chicken and sausage. The gumbo was mediocre. It appeared to be heavily tomato-based and the sausage pieces were about the size of my little finger nail. The crab cakes were mostly bread stuffing and very little crab meat and were bland to my taste. The one real bright spot was their bread pudding which was truly delicious. $58.00 before tip for one order of 3 small crab cakes as an appetizer, 2 bowls of chicken gumbo, 1 bread pudding, 1 root beer. Do the math.

    We have a small group of four who love to dine out together at least four times a year for birthdays. We chose this restaurant because we decided we wanted bread pudding for dessert. The first person arrived alone and was seated promptly without the whole group being present. We chose to eat outside. Food was good, server was outstanding, and the, atmosphere was great. We will be revisiting this gem.

    Schilleci's offers truly authentic Creole dishes plus some excellent fish preparations. The food is consistently fresh and tasty and the staff professional and helpful. The owners go out of their way to ensure that guests feel welcome and have a great dining experience. This is our go to place before events at the Pavilion and whenever we are in the mood for a taste of N'Awlins.

    Relatively small restaurant, but they serve up some really good seafood. Not the cheapest place in Market Street, but prices are on par with Jasper's and Tommy Bahamas. Have yet to be disappointed. You'd be wise to make reservations on Fridays and Saturdays.

    The owners were so generous, and had a table reserved for us with a high chair WAITING for our son as requested. There is no parallel to this fine Cajun dining, and they have set the bar very high for anyone that wants to try. The wine was fantastic, and the food was great. The pork rib eye was very delicious, but the star of the meal was the artichoke dip! We will be back soon.

    This was our first time to this restaurant and we were very pleased from the time we walked in the front door. We started with the crab cakes in the fresh mango sauce. My wife normally doesn't care for anything with shellfish but she devoured one before I could finish mine. I had the Pasta Vodoo and it was absolutely delicious. The ingredients are obviously of highest quality and flavor. We finished with the bread pudding and it was quintessentially New Orleans all the way. We will be back.

    Being from Louisiana, I am always intrigued by restaurants with a Louisiana menu. This is not a loud, over-decorated Cajun style fun place. It is more of a low-key, upscale Louisiana cuisine. The food I'd delicious, the service is frequent and attentive, and the owner makes a point of going around and talking to all of the guest. All of us at the table (6) had something different and each loved what they ordered. This is a great restaurant and in a great location!

    We just can't get enough of this wonderful little restaurant. We were thrilled after discovering we had an authentic New Orleans style establishment right in our own backyard. Lunch was great, po-boys, bisque, jambalaya, great daily special menu, Abita beer, etc. When we ate there for diner we were just AMAZED. Our server Corey was delightful, energetic, and made wonderful wine suggestions. We naturally went with a bottle of the Duckhorn Merlot the moment it was suggested (he must have somehow known our love of Duckhorn!?). We loved the Crab Cakes w/ Mango Salsa and Jumbo Shrimp. The Pork Rib-eye was cooked perfectly and the Blackened Shrimp Risotto was to die for. We have already booked reservations for the night of the Tim Mcgraw concert.

    We have been wanting to try Schilleci's and finally gave it a go. Our food was good but not great; service was efficient and friendly; the atmosphere is a little sterile and falls short of inviting. I would not choose it for a romantic dinner out, but would return with kids or definitely with friends for lunch.

    Had reservation for 8:15pm on a Wednesday evening. After ordering was notified kitchen to close at 9pm; if we wanted to order any dessert should do so by 8:50pm if it needed preparation from kitchen. Only patrons in restaurant after 9pm with some staff seated in plain site in main restaurant waiting to leave. Waiter tried to not push us but the air was set. Food was good but the experience left much to be desired.

    I made a seamless reservation on open table. We were the last table of the night but our service and food was superb I had the crab and lobster stuffed jalapeño and my boyfriend had the blackened shrimp and crab risotto which was pricey ($32) but was absolutely delicious. Our only regret was not receiving our leftovers for the latter which we discovered when we arrived home.

    We sat outside and were able to hear a popular concert from The Pavilion which was fun. The crab cakes and bread pudding were my favorites, rich and delicious! My son, who doesn't eat seafood, enjoyed the Cajun Chicken Alfredo. It was a bit pricey for a regular dining experience, but okay for a special occasion. I will definitely go back soon!

    We booked a table through Open Table. We planned to eat dinner before a concert across the street. We chose a reservation time based on the concert so we would have plenty of time and not be rushed. We arrived at 6:30 and our table wasn't ready. We waited 20-25 minutes for a table WITH a reservation. Once seated we received our drink orders but not a bowl of cajun chips or bread that comes to the table. We received our entrees about the time we received the chips we had to request. No bread. The manager told us Bread Pudding was on him that night. I had to remind the server of that or we wouldn't have received it. We made it to the concert just in time, rushed. Great food but inconvenienced. Poorly done.
