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.

We had a wonderful time. Party of 6 turned into party of 8...the restaurant could not have been more accommodating. That is why we always like to meet there. Excellent food and great service.

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.

This was the first time we had been back to Woodlands in 6-7 months, and the dining experience was much improved over what it had been before. The founder special was excellent and the fish tacos were very good. We definitely intend to go back soon.

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.

This was the second time I've eaten there. First was amazing. Very disappointed this time. Granted, I had a burger but it was dry and tasteless. Best thing about my meal was the fries. Sorry.

My husband and I decided to try Woodlands for our anniversary date. From making the reservation to the last bite of banana pecan bread pudding, everything about our experience was top notch.
Super fresh seafood, creative menu pairings, excellent service, and heavenly desserts!

Food was great as always. Good server - my only comment is one of the wait staff (not our waiter) saw that I was finished first and wanted to take away my plate when others where still eating - not appropriate. And while asking me about taking away the plate interupted our conversation. Think she needs training on not interrupting patron's conversation and not taking away the female's plate until the other in the party have finished eating. Our main waiter was very good and unaware of this.
