It is a nice place but almost every dish has maple glazing or mushrooms and I hate both and I hate being picky and asking to modify dishes. It was really tuff for my wife and I to order. The big thing wasn't the ordering either for us, it was the atmosphere, we were the only ones outside of workers in there under 65-70+. I get everyone's got to eat but market it that way if that is what it is.

Valentines Day.
Iris is wonderful and the Chef made sure all items were gluten free for me. On such a busy night, we really appreciated the attention to detail.

We ordered a variety of appetizers to share and all were good. Pretty good place to have a business luncheon. For lunch it’s a good idea to make a reservation as it gets quite crowded.

Lunch with a friend who is soft spoken. Wrong choice of location, as the restaurant is very noisy. The sever was pleasant and efficient but almost too efficient. She appeared to whisk away our plates and leave the check as we were still chewing out last bites.

I wife and I went to Woodlands on a recent Wednesday evening when they have half-price wines by the glass for some of their selections. We were promptly seated at a table and the overall service was very good. I selected a chicken Cordon Bleu and it was very good. My wife had a salmon plank salad and it was also very good. We save room for a dessert to share and selected the mixed berry cobbler which was served with ice cream and it was a nice end to a very nice meal. It was pretty crowded giving the half price wine promotion so I suggest you get a reservation before arriving.

Service was terrible. Over one hour to get dinner. Service person didn’t bring water till 6:15

She came back 25 minutes after after we asked for her. She was busy serving drinks to a party larger than our two

Wish we felt like this was a neighborhood gem, but it’s just never lived up to that. I’ve visited several times, lunch & dinner, & I’ve never had a memorable meal or experience here. It’s always ‘fine,’ but there are too many good choices in Dallas to have settle for ‘fine.’

One of the regrettable and I believe risky experiences is when you have to send an entree back. Still sometimes you just have to do it. This happened on Friday. My wife and I both ordered the special which was a gorgonzola encrusted filet. We ordered medium rare+. I first pressed on mine and then did a single cut and on its best day it was blue rare. I mean the center was not even warm. What sets this apart is the way that the staff handled it. While my issue was clear (And somewhat blue), they were sincerely apologetic and we soon got correctly cooked steaks. What could have been a mess actually resulted in a very good experience. The steaks were actually outstanding. I would put them again any that I have even eaten and I have been fortunate enough to enjoy some great experiences. Plus to the Woodlands.

We ate here Sunday night. Very pretty surroundings. Mom had the tortilla soup and said it was good, she was glad she'd gotten the bread service. I had the French Dip sandwich. SO much food! The sandwich was huge and came with lemon-rosemary fries, but those flavors were absent. Still the fries were hot and crispy. I am not a fan of horseradish, so the aioli did nothing for me it was SO heavily flavored with horseradish. The beef jus was delicious. I took home half my sandwich and the jus and had it for lunch the next day.

After several visits we stopped going due to poor service and food quality. We tried again nearly six months later and this will be the last visit. The service was horrible for a party of 2. We were sat at the bar and it took nearly 10 minutes to get a drink order in. 20 minutes later the waiter came back and asked if we wanted appetizers. The waiter was sweating and poorly kept. He looked overworked. The bread was hot, very little flavor. The cream of mushroom soup was flat and dull. The conversations around us were loud and vulgar. The prices of the menu are definitely not worth the experience.
