We all tried each other’s plates and shared the appetizers. Everything was delicious! The shrimp etouffee was spicy and spectacular. The seafood trio pasta was scrumptious, cheesy and savory. I will definitely visit again. The sweet potato waffle fries were unlike any sweet potato fry I’ve ever had.

The crab bisque was wonderful, the best I've ever had. The entrée was delicious too, pan-seared fresh fish with scallops and asparagus. My only criticism is it doesn't have a full bar, just one brand of several kinds of liquor that can only be served on the rocks or with water. But the wine was good and the food was great.

We had dinner before a concert for our first time at Shilleci's, but it won't be the last. It was a great experience! The Crawfish dip was a great starter, followed by great gumbo. Great selecetion of entrees, and were delivered to perfection. The special of Lobster Ravioli was outstanding. Just a delightful experience!

We don't live in The Woodlands, but we will drive to eat occasionally at Schilleci's. As in previous visits, the food, the service, the atmosphere (very NO) were all excellent. One caution: if you order beignet's for desert, you better bring extra people with you. There are more than a few in the order. We brought some home. Yumm!

I always like going to Schilleci’s, and enjoy the food, but leave feeling “that was an expensive lunch”. It is almost worth it, but perhaps I’m being too critical. Everyone is very nice. Service a bit slow.

My wife and I visited here during our stay at a nearby hotel for New Year's Eve. It was so good, we came back for a second and third visit before heading back home. Their beignets are consistently better than anything that the city of New Orleans can serve. Save your gas and give Schilleci's a try. You'll be glad you did.

Enjoyed anniversary dinner at Schilleci’s. Mr. Schilleci greeted us at the door, showed us to our table, told us about the restaurant and the staff, and introduced us to our waiter / sommelier. Service was excellent. Food was absolutely amazing. Fabulous wine list. And the atmosphere was perfect for our anniversary celebration. We will definitely be back.

Our server, Amber, was excellent! Attentive, but not hovering; knowledgeable and approachable! And accommodating! We shared our main course and she had it split in the kitchen, so we didn't look like the Clampetts, haha! Food was fast, super fresh and delicious, and plated perfectly! Favourites were the scallops and the blackened Barramundi, and the bread pudding (oh my!)!! So all of it, really!

Schilleci's was better than ever on Saturday night. We shared an amazing seared blue fin tuna app followed by main courses of barramundi and pan-seared filet. Chef David created both specials based on the fresh ingredients he was able to obtain that morning. Waiter and Somm Ben paired these offerings with a beautiful bottle of 2015 Puligny Montrachet, which we enjoyed through a huge dessert trio of cheesecake, key lime pie, bread pudding and beignets. We look home enough food for 3 more meals, plus desserts reminding us of another great evening on Market Street in The Woodlands. We will return!

A great little restaurant in the heart of the Woodlands. Having lived in New Orleans, I not only love the cuisine I am a bit critical when places ‘don’t get it quite right’. Schilleci’s gets it right. From the extremely personable service staff to the creative and innovative kitchen staff , this place makes for a wonderful experience. Start with a varied but limited fresh catch listing, add the means you want the fish prepared / accompanied and you have started a wonderful dining experience. Authentic, yet creative, appetizers / desserts round out a pleasant night of dining. This was my first time there and it certainly will not be my last. . . . Simply put, they get it ‘New Orleans’- right. Very high praise in my book.
Highly recommended.

We googled good places to eat near the Cynthia Mitchell pavillion and this restaurant popped up. It was definitely an enjoyable experience from the exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable staff to the unique and extremely delicious food. It is a bit pricey but that's understandable given the quality of the service and exquisite food in addition to the location in the Woodlands.
