Service (Marty) was excellent in every way. We both had the salmon special and it was delicious. Ambiance is always great.

The food and service was great, but the noise level was way too high to have a conversation without yelling. I wouldn't recommend it if you wanted to visit across the table with someone, which is what I wanted to do.

 (Kansas City)·Dined on January 30, 2018

I would like to give this restaurant a better review. However, this is my third visit to Woodlands and I will probably not go back. It's not the bad quality; my salad was good. It's just lack of substance in the salad. I had the smoked trout salad for the second time. The problem with the salad is that the smoked trout was MIA. There was hardly any trout on the salad and what was there was in shredded pieces. The salad had avocados, also MIA, with small insignificant diced bits. I really expect an $18 salad to have significant portions of the named ingredients.

Service was very attentive. Menu selection was terrific. Both my wife and I ordered a fish dinner. While both were good they were unfortunately delivered lukewarm.. The presentation and accompaniments were good, but both seemed to miss the mark a bit on flavor. We will return but will try something else next go around.

Excellent all the way around. Food is prepared exactly as requested and service is impeccable. (Ask for Iris! She’s quick, friendly and fun and doesn’t miss anything.) The Brie is appetizer is the best in the area. We order two for a table of 5, and there are no leftovers. Great dining experience.

Been twice. Busy, but not so noisy that you can't carry on a conversation. Both times the the wait was a little too long before we were greeted at the table by the waiter. Other than that, very good food and service.

Even though I had my fish simply grilled it was so tasty. The sides were excellent too. Didn't care for the TV with the sports channel on but it was not loud so it was not a distraction.
