The food was outstanding. We ordered the fish special, Chipotle and Parmesan Encrusted Halibut and it was one of the best fish dishes we've ever had. I complemented the Chef, who said that they can make it anytime "off menu" as long as they have the fish.

My spouse was disappointed in the small sized Filet mignon, potatoes and spinach.
Ambiance is always nice and service is good. Other entrees were good.

Food was great. Carrot ginger soup is highly recommended. I love their Ahi Tuna salad. It is filling and creative mix of items. My friends ordered the French Dip sandwich. The meat was moist and flavorful. A big portion. Our first table was next to the private party room and was a little loud. The staff happily accommodated our request to move away from the party.

The service was terrible. We had a reservation but weren’t sat for another 15 minutes after our reservation time. We weren’t acknowledged at the table for about 10 minutes after sitting down. They had the little computer kiosks on the table. Completely ruined the atmosphere. I felt like I was at a Chili’s. The food was good but not enough to get me to ever go back.

Tried the french dip sandwich. It was very good. The best french dip in Dallas is still Hillstone. The one at Woodlands was close but not quite as good. Companion had the fish and chips. Didn't try the fish but it looked like it was cooked well and not greasy. French fries were excellent.

The soup and salad combination was perfect for a business lunch, although I feel that over $15/ea was a little excessive for smaller portions.
However, I definitely appreciated that the waiter was solicitous but respectful of our business conversation, and was pleasant although we occupied a booth for too long during a busy lunch time!

Always a good choice. I'm always pleased. The food is always very good. Sometimes the servers rush you into ordering. When you go out with a friend you enjoy visiting. The servers usually have to come back 2-3 times before we are ready to order. This happens every time but it doesn't affect me so much that I don't go back.
