Upon arrival I was optimistic we were going to have a nice family brunch. However, it all went down hill from there. I’ve had the privilege to dine at some of the finest establishments around the world and honestly I think I’ve had a better experience at a Whataburger drive thru than at Willie G’s. The service was horrendous... How hard is it to make a mimosa? I can usually make one in less than 30 seconds. It took us over 30 mins to get our drinks. The waitstaff was disorganized and our poor waiter... He is definitely not cut out for the customer service industry... My grandmother tried to ask our waiter a question and he told her to wait a second and walked off. The food lacked flavor and some entrees were cold and had to be sent back. Knowing Tilman’s personality and how high he holds his expectations this was a bust. We will definitely not be returning and I’ll make sure to tell all my friends and family to stay away!

The food was very good. The French Quarter oysters on the half shell was also wonderful. My wife had the gumbo. It more like a bisque than gumbo, but she enjoyed it. I had the grilled Salmon. It was good, but the broccoli in the broccoli, bacon, apple side dish was a bit tough. My wife had the sea bass which was very good. Next time, I will forsake my old stand by, salmon, and order the sea bass too. The Lemon Strand was to superb. Don't make a mistake and order two. One is plenty for two people.

The service was excellent. I don't remember the name of our server, but he did an excellent job.

Very professional experience although our waiter was taking care of large tables he still made it a point to make sure we was not over looked. Did notice that the manager that was on duty spoke with several tables around us about there dining. But never once stop by to ask if we was ok or needed anything. But nevertheless I will continue to dine with the landry's family.

It was really great, food and service and especially our server Michelle and Ryan, assistant general manager went beyond and above to make sure we were happy after a couple of disappointing dining experiences on 2 separate occasions.
Thank you for everything

First time visiting Willie Gs and definitely my last time. The waiter wasn’t attentive. At one point, we had to get assistance from another waiter. When we got our food, it was cold. When we returned it to the kitchen it came back worse. We left unsatisfied.

Where do I start? I chose to celebrate my 42nd birthday at Willie G’s based on location and to try out a new place I haven’t experienced yet. Needless to say I was thoroughly disappointed in the lack of service and quality of food and will not ever return. Let’s start with Roger, our server. He was the most un-attentive server my friends and I ever experienced, we literally had to ask for everything including bread to start and refills on our cocktails. When he left our table, 30 minutes had passed before he returned to check on us, the sad part was...they weren’t even busy. When we asked why he hasn’t checked on us, he said he was helping another server. WTF...what sense does that make and you aren’t taking care of your own table? Now the food, it lacked presentation and taste, the appetizers looked like a few grilled shrimp with pieces of crab were thrown on a plate. My friend and I ordered gumbo and it was the worse looking soup I ever seen. It barely had any meat, was watery and the roux was burnt. We sent it back and didn’t replace with anything else. None the less, there were a couple of birthdays who got the whole staff to come out and sing, but when it came to my birthday, we got Roger 😑. The Manager tried to rectify our concerns but the overall consensus for me was, they didn’t want us there. We still gave a decent tip just to avoid the stigma that we don’t tip BUT trust me when I say, the food should have been free and they should have paid us for the horrible experience and the non existent customer service. In the future, I will stick to what I know; our money would have been better spent, food and ambiance enjoyed at Mastros.

The margaritas are too good. They are too easy to drink. The food was served perfectly and a few special requests were handled well. The new location takes a bit of getting used to. There were a lot of shuttle busses from the nearby hotel in the parking lot making it a bit difficult to maneuver. The décor was modern and attractive. The display of the fish of the day at the entrance was appealing. The valet staff were quick and efficient. Overall a really nice long lunch.

First of all, even when they called today to confirm reservation, we got there to hear that we did not have reservations. After a couple of minutes or so, they found it!! About to get upset just here. Even though I told them several times that two at the table were having birthdays, nothing special was done. Waiter was attentive, but didn’t go beyond her duties. Brought my martini not as ordered, and full of dripping red stain from bar counter. Table cloth got stained, I asked if we could change tables. She brought two paper napkins to cover stain. I was not impressed. On the contrary, disappointed.

While there celebrating a birthday, we had another addition to our party and it appeared as though the request was ignored to add another or locate another table... not good when your addition cannot eat.... the waiter continued to say he was the “middle man” and had no say and the manager attended to everyone else and ignored our request... while I like the atmosphere at Willie G’s I would not go with a party larger than 5 people... the gumbo was a little thin (watery)....

We used to go to the old Willie G’s on Post Oak where you could have great dinner and conversation at the table. This is impossible in the new place. On top of the very bad acoustics, they have very loud music playing and all you can do is eat and stare at your phone or scream at your dinner partners. Maybe this is what they are going for in this new concept. Not my cup of tea.
By the way,, we enjoyed over 30 years of great dining at the old place

Very nice restaurant. The new location will have to grow on me but overall the ambience was extremely nice. The food portions were smaller than anticipated for the cost. We ordered the scallops and only received 3 medium sized scallops. We also ordered the grilled seafood platter and the portions were small for that dish as well. Overall a mediocre experience.
