    Very good dinner. They were very limited on the calamari as an appetizer, which was disappointing. But the rest of the dinner was fine.

    My husband and I are from Calgary, Canada and we always go to Willy Gs when in Houston. We had a great evening there with our two young grandsons. The atmosphere is lovely on the patio, the food was amazing (grilled shrimp and vegetables, and there was even an unofficial kids’ menu. The service was very friendly and professional.

    I’m a regular at Willie G’s and it’s consistently fantastic. I also adore the valets!! We did have one small food issue so diners beware (lol😬), there were 2 spots of mold on the garlic bread. We pointed it out to the waiter and he brought an unmoldy replacement but then tried to tell us it was garlic. No, darling. I looked at it with the magnifying feature on my phone and showed everyone else at the table and there were two green dots with white fuzz on the perimeter of both. Definitely not garlic. We didn’t bother to correct him but it was slightly annoying to minimize the reality of the mold by denying its existence. Yikes… the service is usually above reproach but this time they drop the ball a teeny bit. I’ll still be back! This and Clark’s Oyster Bar are my fav seafood spots in Houston!

    A little loud from my pervious times dining here. (Music and crowd) I have eaten here for holiday meals and always had great experiences. This time not for sure if because of the crowd and buffet going on, but we ordered off the menu and a few items were over cooked or barely blanched. Will come back, but probably not during the holidays.

    Recently had brunch here, kitchen has fallen a bit since we previously ate here. Great pancakes and cocktails, but shrimp poorboy was fried to a tough and chewy consistency. The crawfish Benedict had a really fishy taste which was very off-putting. Our server and the staff were nice however. Too mid at this point.

    Aesthetically, the place is superb. Food was well above average, and for the price, I’d expect nothing less. The noise level was medium, but I suppose it was from all the excitement. Definitely will be back for a 2nd round.

    We have been.coming to Willie G’s since the 80’s and it’s always a treat. The Cajun seafood is great but lately we have really enjoyed the fresher options like sushi rolls and shrimp and crab martini. Cocktails are well made and there is a very good wine by the glass list.

    This was my first time at Willie Gs and will definitely be my last. The food was very basic as far as taste. The seafood was overcooked and tough, lacked seasoning as a whole (we ordered Salmon and red fish). Calamari was also overcooked. The Oysters and the Crab Cakes were delicious though. My server was all over the place she was forgetting what we were ordering had to go back multiple times. She would be gone for 30 minutes at a time without checking in on us. AND THEN.. I ordered a dessert that they brought from an entirely different restaurant and was walking with the dessert OUTSIDE with no cover or anything all around other random people breathing on my food and the outside elements. I understand that thats where the dessert are made but to not cover it while walking all around and outside with the food is crazy. I fine dine a lot and the prices are comparable to other fine dining establishments but the food service and overall ambience is comparable to being at Applebees and those two things don’t mix for me.

    I was annoyed to have a reservation and then by seated at the much less nice bar area. When we asked to move, they seemed annoyed, said nothing was available and then I would have to wait 20 minutes. We eventually sat in nicer section but the difference between bar and main dining is vast so it shouldn’t even be a question on where to eat unless we ask for bar. Waiter ended up however being very nice

    The service was terrible. There were only 3 tables occupied in the restaurant and the service was very slow. Our waitress never checked on us other than to take our initial order. It took 15 minutes to get my soda after ordering. The food was actually very good but I don’t think we would return based on the slow, awful service.

    My wedge salad was one of the best I’ve ever had. I ordered the ultimate seafood platter, my fries & oysters were cold. While waiting on our server to return, a manager was passing so we explained the problem, he apologized and took action.

    The food is good but everything else is just average… They are charging for a fine dining experience and are only delivering restaurant chain level service… they could do so much better if they would just focus on the basics of providing excellent service, timely response to questions, proper staging of food and a professional delivery of every aspect of the dining experience. I hope they do better.

    We may have come on a super busy night. The food wasn’t anything to write home about, I don’t think we took any of our leftovers with us or at least not all of them. Our server was nice, but was pulled in a lot of different directions and it took a long time for our food to come out. Some parts of our food had started to get cold which didn’t help to enjoy it at all. The drinks were okay. I think after one drink and a few bites of food we called it an evening from this spot. Given the reviews and pricing we certainly had higher expectations. Maybe in the future it will be a better experience.

    I’ve never had a bad experience at Willie G’s. Always love the service! Last night the food wasn’t at its best like it normally is but overall it was still good. Our appetizers wasn’t hot but was flavorful, which is why I can’t give it a bad rating. Still satisfying!!!!
