Diner Reviews
  • "Noise level almost ruined the evening as it was virtually impossible to carry on a conversation. The level was so high the waiter could barely hear us ordering and in fact brought us the wrong drinks at the outset.........probably because she couldn't hear what we were requesting."

  • "We love The Woodlands. Have been there for brunch, this time for dinner. It's the special touches on each dish that really take their food to the next level - ginger/blue cheese dressing on the wedge salad, rosemary-lemon fries with an incredible prime rib sandwich. And they make a perfect Bombay Sapphire martini, too!"

  • "On short notice we decided to go out for dinner Saturday evening. I am so glad that we did. The food was wonderful. The pork chop was flavorful and my husband loved the horseradish crusted salmon. Be forewarned, the portions are very generous. The salads were under dressed, but fresh. And there are good wine choices at reasonable prices. We'll go back."

Wait staff very sensitive to our need for girls to catch up yet timely service. We didn't feel rushed or bothered. Food always beautifully presented and delicious."

I'm from a corporation down the street and that is how I heard about it. I wonder what its like in the evening? I'll have to try it soon. Thank you for being in the area. Patti"

  • "Even though it is a "neigborhood restaurant" whenever we go there, one feels as if they are really dining "out"! We are greeted warmly. The waitstaff is knowledgeable about the menu and food and friendly, but they do not hover. Give it a try, I am sure you will return often."

  • "appetizer was served with salads--this is not acceptable. Usually Woodlands is my favorite place. I was disappointed Saturday night. we were there for father's day with family. Waitress seemed to want to push me to order more expensive wine than I wanted. It should be what I like not what she likes. What is usually a wonderful place was somewhat disappointing."

  • "This visit to Woodlands was my third for lunch and I look forward to returning for dinner and many more lunches! I took a friend for her birthday and the restaurant set a lovely table with feminine blue linens (rather than the usual black) and had a small vase of fresh flowers. The food was delicious, very reasonably priced, and the service was impeccable. My friend ordered a marvelous Caesar salad with chicken breast that wasn't on the menu (no problem accommodating her request) and I ordered BBQ brisket sliders (3 to an order)--soooo good! I definitely would order them or her salad again. Her chicken was moist and tender and the salad dressing was perfect. I'm ready to return!"

  • "This was our third time to dine at Woodlands. Do not let the fairly unassuming exterior in a strip center fool you. The food here is excellent. the service is actually pretty good but during this visit the bar was very slow. I recommend Woodlands for a casual low key evening out. "

  • "We have dined at Woodlands Grill many times and are always pleased with the food. We ate outside the other night for the first time, and their patio was nicer than I had anticipated. Our only drawback was that the servers seemed a little confused about who had our table; we went from zero service to overwhelming service before one really good waiter "claimed" us. And then she comp'd our dessert as an apology for the mixup. Can't ask for more than that. We will be back."

  • "First visit found very good service and excellent food. I had the trout and my wife had a large grilled salmon salad. We had thought about ordering the "date night" special but did not want the dessert. We chose a good cabernet as well."

  • "I made my reservations on line for unexpected visit within 2 hours, which was great! We were seated immediately and our table was perfect facing the bar. Our server was very friendly, helpful and an experienced server. The appetizer of Brie cheese was delicious, my roast beef sandwich always one of my favorites, and my husband's Ahi tuna salad was delicious, not to mention the Banana Bread Pudding. We both enjoy the Woodlands very much and is definitely on our favorite lists of restaurants. The ambiance is perfect. "

  • "We have been three times in the last six months and have always had an enjoyable experience. The waiters are always pleasant, well- informed on the menu, and solicitous.i ordered one of the most popular dishes on the menu which was the salmon, cabbage, and polenta dish. It was delicious, had a lovely presentation, but was a bit filling with the sauce and cabbage. I would like to see some lighter fish dishes on the menu. My husband ordered the pork chop served with garlic mash potatoes. Again, the dish was tasty but filling, as the pork chop was quite thick. I suppose some people would like this, but we're trying to eat lighter these days. All in all, this restaurant is a gem in the Preston Hollow area."

  • "Have been to Woodlands several times since moving to Dallas. Not spectacular, but consistently good. This place is great for a relatively quiet dinner on the weekend without having to fight large crowds. Service is very good. The menu could be more imaginative, but for a well executed steak or piece of fish, this place is just right. We will continue to come because it is comfortable and dependable."
