We had a lovely dinner! My mom and I had the salmon special which was delicious! My husband had the Mediterranean pasta with shrimp, which he really enjoyed. We split the brownie and cobbler for dessert, both were excellent. Our server was very nice and efficient. The booths are pretty quiet, which makes conversation easy! A wonderful evening!

I couldn’t resist the aubergine stew and it didn’t disappoint. Veggies were tender, sauce was rich and spicy, pine nuts added nice crunch. My guest had the smoked trout salad, which looked fabulous. Portions were generous. Service was attentive but not intrusive.

First time coming to this restaurant and I found it to be very clean and friendly. The atmosphere was great and the food was good. Our waitress name was Iris and she was wonderful. She took everyone orders and got it right the first time. I really enjoyed Woodland America Grill and would definitely go back again. Oh, yes, they offered us some chocolate candy squares when we finish and it was to die for. I wish they sold the candy because I would definitely buy it.

Service was pleasant and very good. Food was excellent. Tasty, well prepared and hot. The only request I may make next time would be to place the port chop, red cabbage and potatoes separately and not on top of each other.

First visit and really enjoyed it. Bartenders were very friendly and informative regarding food selections. Server at table was excellent and made our dinner a pleasant customer experience.
Members of our party had salmon with cabbage and polenta. Cabbage good but polenta, not so much. Crab cake entree was huge and yummy. Save room for the bread pudding. Not a huge portion but beautifully presented and prepared. Will definitely return.

Woodlands is an old favorite we have been going to The Woodlands for about 10 years.
Love the food and atmosphere and friendly staff. They have the best salads and a great variety on the menu. Love it and will keep coming back. Very consistent. Well priced. Big thumbs up.

There were so many healthy choices it was hard to choose. The grilled chicken salad I chose was superb! The dressing was excellent and the presentation was exceptional! I had a new (to me) Pinot Grigio which I liked so much I asked the fantastic waiter to photograph the bottle for me! Matteo Bridot - light and crisp! My husband had the roasted chicken with maple sauce which he enjoyed. Although the serving 1/2 chicken sounded like a lot, it turned out to be just the right size. He said it was tender and very tasty! We shall return!

The food was wonderful and so was the service. It was not loud and there were many people there. We stayed for about 2 hours since it was a friend get together. The mimosas are only $2.50 each which is easier on the pocket book. The food is wonderful and not over priced. In a good area in Addison. The only complaint would be the parking. There are not a ton of spaces right by the restaurant but it’s right next to a shopping center and the parking lot is connected so it easy to find a spot over there somewhat near the restaurant.
