Everything was very good except to situations. One of the steaks were overcooked and the porkchop veal pork chop wasn't cooked properly according to the guest. He did not want to have it return but did not finish the meal. Everything else was very very good and we appreciate the service was super.

I made a reservation for 8 people to celebrate my husband’s and a good friends birthday. It’s nice to be able to talk and visit with friends without the noise level making that difficult. Our food was delicious and our server gave us great service.

The service was terrific. It was New Year's eve and sometimes restaurants give you the feeling of running everyone through as quickly as possible. The staff took time to discuss specific menu needs we had. Checked with the kitchen and provided us with off menu alternatives. We will definitely return.

The New Years eve menu promised a lot but failed to deliver. The duck starter was cold, soggy and very little flavor. Chopped salad bland and soggy. My steak was great (as usual) but my partners sole was awful. Also, the accompanying mash potato (cold and lumpy) and root vegetables undercooked. Dessert was superb!!
Service was not great either. We were a 9h30 booking, seated at 10 and you could tell that the staff were exhausted by the time they got to us.
Not a good evening, but we know it is normally much better and will be back!!!

Wow! What a perfect night! We traveled to Kirby’s for our first time to celebrate a birthday, just expecting a nice steakhouse. We left knowing it would be a place we’d come forever. Everything about our experince was top notch. From our server (Candice), to the exceptional meals, to the complimentary dessert, and even the special photo given to us along with a gift card! While some of these things were due to our small celebration, Kirby’s still went above and beyond to treat us to a special evening. You created a special memory for us and earned lifelong customers! We would highly recommend the woodlands location to others for any occasion!

Excellent gluten free selection. Waiter was fantastic. Service was first class. Left overs were boxed and bagged and while not as good the next day, it was still good.
The ONLY complaint I have about the food was the Shrimp Cocktail. The shrimp was dry. I would bet it was put in the fridge dry. Should be stored on ice and moist.
Now for the Chilean Sea Bass......without a doubt the absolute best I have ever had....and I have had it around the world. The "sear" on the outside was perfect.....not too much and not too little. I went to cut off a bite with my knife and fork.....and the weight of the knife alone sliced into it without any pressure from me. The taste was Heavenly. It melted in my mouth. I am dying to try the Surf and Turf next time but it is going to be real tough not to order the Bass again. Guess I will just have to go more often.
The prices are high so don't expect a "cheap date". That said, the quality/quantity of food and the impeccable service and ambiance make up for the price. Unless you are very wealthy, save this place for a special occasion or to impress a date. It can be described as a "Fine Dining Experience" that you must try at least once when you are in the area.
A special thanks to the establishment for offering a number of entrees that do not contain wheat flour. Those of us who have celiac disease are terrified of going to a new place only to find a very limited number of gluten free items or items that say gluten free but end up making us very sick afterwards.

First time visiting Kirby's and we loved it. I had the tuna, my husband had the lamb. Both were outstanding. I forget what our friends had but they enjoyed their meals as well. We all shared the mushrooms and au gratin potatoes which were yummy! We had not seen our friends in a few years so spent 4 hours at dinner catching up and the staff was wonderful even with our long stay!!

We have been there multiple times for our wedding anniversary. The meals are outstanding, the service is personable and extremely attentive, and the atmosphere is cozy and intimate. We will continue to come to celebrate our years together in a warm and relaxing environment. Thanks to the wait staff and the folks in the kitchen who made the food so good.

Hostess was not friendly when we asked if we could have a table instead of a booth because my parents are older and harder to get in and out. The drinks were not impressive and the steaks too salty. My parents came for Christmas from out of state and wanted a nice restaurant to eat steak but wish we went elsewhere. Server was nice but just not a great dining overall experience.

We made a reservation for Christmas Eve and were seated right away when we arrived. The wait staff was excellent and very helpful with the menu and wine options. Unfortunately, given the price, the food was only average. The steaks were cooked as ordered but were only warm despite the hot plates they were served on. The mashed potatoes served with the steak were actually cold in the middle. For side dishes, were ordered the mushroom risotto, scalloped potatoes and macaroni and cheese. The risotto was extremely salty and the potatoes had an overcooked taste. The macaroni and cheese was excellent; very creamy and the pasta was cooked well. We left full but overall disappointed. In fairness, we did not bring these observations to the attention of staff or management so we can't say how these would have been addressed. Given it was a busy, holiday evening, we will probably go back at a less busy time and see if we have a better experience.

Bar service was excellent - appetizers and salad excellent - main dish not so much. We ordered a large waygu tomahawk steak to split. Cooked perfectly and flavor very good - but very tough - wife and I eat this high end cut frequently and this was not a waygu steak - would be a stretch to even call it prime. Either restaurants buyer was duped or this restaurant marketing something that is not what it actually is - don't think so because we have always had good experiences here. This was not even a Texas waygu but higher end cut so beware that a very good chance you will be disappointed in this selection!
