The food is absolutely amazing. The chef is nice and makes a point to come to your table and meet you. My wife and I had the Australian barramundi with risotto and it is a show stopper. Would highly recommend.

Schilleci's remains one of my favorites, in The Woodlands or anywhere else. I'm anxiously awaiting the opening of another one nearer to HOUSTON, where I'm sure it would be a big hit. (Hint, hint!)

The food was very authentic to New Orleans style, and also pricey (most Cajun restaurants are). Just a few groups on the weeknight we picked to visit so very quiet - good place for a business discussion. I would have preferred for beer to be on tap, but only bottles. The server knew just when to visit (not too often) - that was much appreciated. All things considered, we would consider returning.

We have made it our goal to try the top 20 restaurants of the Woodlands as listed on Trip Advisor. Schilleci's was an excellent dining experience and the menu items we enjoyed were not something we could have experienced anywhere else. Our waiter Ben was attentive without being intrusive and was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We will definitely put this on our repeat list.

I really enjoy this restaurant. I think it's a hidden gem of The Woodlands. It's a small place, so it's easy to miss it and it is on the pricier side, but the food is definitely worth it. I've never had a bad meal there and the don't serve tiny food like a lot of higher priced restaurants. They specialize in high-end Cajun and they're great at it. We have been for random nights out and for special occasions and it's always been great. I love the stuffed shrimp.

They also have really excellent service. We made a reservation for Easter. We arrived a bit early and our table was already ready for us because they had actually put reserved signs on the tables with reservations. This is a vast improvement over the restaurants that give you a reservation time, but then just kind of guess/hope a table will be available and leave you waiting around for 45 minutes after your reservation time. I will take the awesome Schilleci's way over that any day. Our waiter was attentive but not pushy. Our food came out hot and delicious. I will definitely eat there again.

Oh, also, they have really good desserts. A lot of restaurants treat dessert as kind of a throw-away item they have to have, but the desserts here are actually great. The cheesecake brûlée with praline sauce was amazing.

We came from out-of-town, but met some friends. Atmosphere was cozy, but vibrant. Delicious, authentic Cajun cuisine. Great wine selection. Wonderful desert. My husband frequently visits The Woodlands for business, and he was glad to have found a nearby Market Street gem. Will definitely come back!

We came across this place strolling around one day we stopped in for lunch and loved it. I am from Louisiana and the food is amazing. I took my fiance here for his birthday and everyone was wonderful. We loved the manager on duty that day he was a very sweet man. Thank you!

I love New Orleans cuisine and am fortunate to have had lots of opportunities to dine in New Orleans. I also have eaten very good and authentic New Orleans recipes at various restaurants in Houston, but this restaurant is not on my list. The first dish I ordered was so bland that I asked the waiter to box it up with a mind to take it home and "fix it". I ordered a second dish that was so overwhelmingly seasoned that it overpowered the main ingredient. I'm not sure from where this restaurant obtained their New Orleans recipes but I've never eaten anything like in New Orleans that tastes like their rendition.

The food was over-priced for the quality. The fried seafood was cooked properly but under seasoned. The duck was cooked to perfection and delicious but they paired it with a flavorless jambalaya. It was set up like a New Orleans style restaurant but the atmosphere, music, and ambience didn't match.

I was greeted warmly and as soon as I was seated, the waiter brought me cajun potato chips. That's when I decided I should go with an extra dry Prosecco. It complimented the mildly spicy chips and food. I ordered the Barramundi, blackened with shrimp, asparagus and mushrooms. It was cooked perfectly and delicious! I will be going back.

Always a wonderful atmosphere and the food is always fantastic. It also says a lot when you see the same staff there year after year. It shows they know how to treat their employees! And as for the owner, he is a true man of integrity. He treats everyone the same no matter who you are and he truly values anyone who stops by to enjoy the experience they create at Schilleci’s!!
