Woodlands is one of those restaurants I always visit when I'm in Dallas! The dishes are always creative, large or small and while I've been for both lunch and dinner, I prefer them both. This evening we were a table of 4. We started with cocktails (delish!), were seated and had the delightful Stephanie as our server. She let us know she was "new", but she was wonderful! She helped our evening along and joined in with our fun without being the center of attention. We ordered Calamari, Chimichurri Steak, Salmon, Ruby Red Trout and the feature which was the winner of the night; a flounder filet wrapped around king crab and frankly it was so good, I don't recall the rest (and it wasn't my dish but I had a taste - yum!) All were impressed and enjoyed - especially rave reviews on the Ruby Red Trout and the feature. Isn't that what it's about? Let the chef impress, and he did!

We've been to The Woodlands several times. The food is always good, the service is always efficient and personable. The decor is nice and the tables are spaced nicely so guests are not elbow to elbow. Thus, the noise level is perfect for normal conversation. We will return, again.

The entrees were beautifully plated as well as delicious - the crab cake was Especially tasty- full of bid chunks of crab with little filler. The waiter recommended a “Raymond” Chardonnay - a white wine- outstanding flavor.

One of our favorite restaurants. It is good for any occasion from business to family celebrations. The chef has done an excellent job designing a great menu with daily specials which are very innovative.
Saturday and Sunday brunches are very good and special occasion brunches are wonderful as well.

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.
