I have been going to Willie gs for years, decades, including the old location.
The service was fabulous-
I am surprised they say you can tell you, “ yes, you can substitute vegetables” but fail to tell you there is a $4 charge (x2)
My dad’s steak was tough, For a rib eye. My fish was great, as was someone else’s- my suggestion- order seafood.

It was a great evening and great experience. We visited from California looking forward to Gulf Coast seafood and an enjoyable evening. This is by far our new favorite restaurant in Houston.

We had a wonderful experience eating here and loved how close it was to our hotel! The staff was great and the food was even better! The only negative thing about it was that they didn’t have any GF bread for my Mom. Most places accommodated her wherever we went, and she was a little disappointed that they didn’t have bread or crackers to go with our oysters.

First time at Willie G's. Was not what I expected. Looking at it on line and the name I wasn't expecting high end service, quality, ambiance....but most importantly amazing food. If you've never been there.....go go go go.

We were celebrating a friends Anniversary and they were very accommodating. Although the ambiance is nice, the food is tasty, the portions are very minimal for the pricy selections.

Once reservations were made I received a confirmation phone call and was told the group policy for seating and payment which was appreciated. Our table was ready and service was great.

I really enjoyed the over all experience of the restaurant. Servers were very professional. I ordered chicken gumbo and it was extremely salty. It did not taste like gumbo at all. My gumbo was sent back and I opted out of ordering another meal. The server did remove the gumbo from my ticket which was unexpected but greatly appreciated. I will be back but will not order gumbo lol because everyone else enjoyed their meals.

Every thing was great except an incident that happened to me which I believe is your fault.
At the table where I was sitting,there was a ledge on the table covered by white cloth.
I ordered wine .
I placed the glass on the ledge.
The glass tilted and all the wine spilled on my clothes and damaged them.

Overall food was very good. Seabass was fresh, but snapper smelled a little fishy. Service was OK. A bit slow and some items missing and needed to be asked for. For price point service could be stepped up a little more. But really great meal overall.

I have been to this restaurant in the past, as well as other Landry's establishments. I expect average to above average, the the service this night was below par. The wait staff was very friendly, but everything took a long time, from ordering drinks, to receiving drinks, to ordering the meal, to receiving the meal, to paying for the tab. The restaurant was not crowded at all, but the time it took to get anything was extremely slow. We even had to ask the manager for the bill, and we did let the manager know about the slow service. I do not know if it was the fault of the bar, the kitchen, or even our waiter, but it was very disappointing.

Well, normally I love Willie G's, but the menu has changed since I was last there. Almost no options other than seafood. You must love seafood otherwise I'd say don't go there. It was tough on one special guest with us, she really had trouble finding something to order. Moving on. Unfortunately I had issue with the service. There was only one waiter for the entire room. I brought a table of 8 execs in town for the first time to Houston and bragged about Willie G's inside the fabulous Post Oak. Problem is I had not been to this location before so I had no idea the restaurant was not "inside" the Post Oak Hotel as Post Oak boasts that this is one of their restaurants. Folks if you are thinking you are going to be able to walk thru that gorgeous hotel to get to the restaurant, you will be disappointed. It is a separate building next door. It also says that attire is upscale, told everyone to wear a jacket/slacks, something nice, noticed some jeans and golf shirts dining so disappointing. Moving on...we had an early dinner: 6:15pm. It was not busy, only 2 tables had guests when we got there. We sat at the table for at least 30 minutes with no water, no bread, no "can I get anyone a drink" service. We just sat there forever looking at each other like, "is anyone going to wait on us?" I was embarrassed, I had to get up and go ask "hey where's our waiter? we've been just sitting there forever without any drinks or anything." When he finally showed up he was very attentive BUT...it was when he finally showed up. So...bad service that night.

My husband and I chose Willie G’s for our Friday date night. It also happened to be Astros’ playoffs so the hostess did a great job finding us a table by a tv so we could watch the game.

We started with drinks and specialty oysters. The drinks were done well, and the north coast oysters were delicious. We each had the seafood file gumbo- decent but bland, needing Tobasco to add proper flavor. My husband had the broiled seafood platter and potatoes with sour cream for his main course. It was good, but he was expecting a more exciting dish. It was very greasy for being broiled. I had the broiled tilefish, which was one of the specialty fishes of the day, and the Mac and cheese. The fish was way over cooked and i had to douse it in lemon and salt to pick up any flavor, and was done after a few bites. The Mac and cheese was mediocre, not good, not bad. For dessert we shared the Creme brûlée. It was good for sharing, but there was something just a bit off.

The service experience left a bit to be desired. The waiter may have been new or just inexperienced, but couldn’t answer some questions we had about the oysters. Also, when our food cane out, it was dropped off with no explanation, nor were we ever asked if we needed anything, we had to chase someone down when we did. But the valet- horrible. Every experience is terrible. This time we pulled up and I handed them our valet key. When we came out from dinner, it took a while to get our car and pay valet fee (no idea why, it wasn’t busy). When we got home, we could not find the key. Obviously it was in the car but nowhere to be found. My husband spent 10 mins looking for it, I spent another 15. Finally I called to try to figure out what happened. The valet stuck the key on the shifter, which then fell in between the seats. The resolve- “get a coat hanger”. Luckily it worked, but really? Put it where it belongs or hand it back! It’s a basic rule. Ridiculous and frustrating. Not the way our evening should have ended.

The parking, trying to leave after our delicious dinner, was an absolute disaster. The manager was rude to me when I tried to discuss it with him. Not acceptable to spend close to an hour waiting for our car, after a lovely anniversary dinner. :(

I went to Willie Gs to celebrate my birthday. It was a big mistake!

Do not let the area fool you.. there was nothing upscale about my experience. Every single employee I encountered was disinterested and unenthused. Despite being dressed up on a Tuesday night for a special occasion, we were seated in a rowdy booth area surrounded by Astros jerseys. The entire dining experience felt like eating on a conveyor belt with dishes being plopped unceremoniously in front of my fiancé and I then whisked away before last bites were fully enjoyed. The tines of my forks were bent in many opposing directions. Drinks were forgettable. Plating and flavor were subpar. As someone who ALWAYS orders dessert, I requested the check before even looking at a menu. Who doesn't want cake on their birthday?! At Willie Gs, I was ready to leave. Save your coins and go to any other reputable seafood restaurant.

Nice atmosphere, but the food was lackluster. I ordered the ultimate seafood platter and wouldn’t do that again. It was bland but a large portion. The grilled oysters were good though.

1st time visitor and the food and service were excellent. Very loud, which made conversation difficult but could have also asked for a corner table. Next time we will. Very much enjoyed.
