Great food, a bit pricey on the higher end items. Service was great at first unfortunately they triple seated our waiter after our food was served, so we didn't see much of him after that. Worked out, as we decided to skip 2nd round of drink and dessert, but still wasn't handled well. We will be back.

Birthday dinner that was planned ahead. Reservations made it easy . Service was top notch, recommendations were on point and it was an enjoyable evening. On item I would mention is the bottle of wine we purchased was $45. No issue with price but it was 2 1/2 glasses worth and we were splitting it. At $12 a glass I would have been better off ordering it myself. Not that big a deal but wish I had known.

Brunch Saturday. Eggs perfectly soft scrambled with chives. Good bacon. $3 bloody Mary. Good location with plenty of parking in a major shopping crossroads (Preston/Forest). Service was prompt and friendly. Not overcrowded. Well designed and comfortable pleasant interior. Full menu plus brunch specials. Good wine list and reasonable prices by the glass. An excellent option especially if you have groceries to buy or shops to visit. Easy to get to from the tollway.

We go to Woodlands often my Mother loves the food so we celebrated her birthday there. Unfortunately our server appeared to be more interested in getting her side work done than serving us. I ended up giving her an overly generous tip due to miscalculation as I was standing in the hall by the kitchen door having had to get another server to get her attention out of the kitchen so I could pay since we’d been waiting 15 min for her to come give us our check. Of course we didn’t get the yummy chocolates either. It’s unfortunate that we had some friends with us and that had to be their impression of the place

We were overlooked by the wait staff, it took 30 minutes to get wine and water. They could not be bothered to split a salad so brought out a small plate (so easily could have been done in the kitchen) and our service continued to be dismal. The manager said it was because of all the people on the patio, I say call in more staff!

5 P.M. on a Friday evening. Almost no one in restaurant at that time. 2 of us. We ordered some french fries to begin, while thinking about dinner. Never came and we had to flag down about three different people asking where they were! Finally the manager said he'd get them and not charge us. After ordering our entrees we asked our (same) waiter for some hot bread...he said he's get it as it was served by "request".
Well, we never got the bread either!

Our entrees were good. Service really slipping here! (my experience during my last three visits).

Woodlands American Grill had a comfortable high-end feel. Our waiter was very attentive and thorough. Everything we ordered came out perfectly cooked and just as we asked. I got the special of the night, Red Fish with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. The fish could have had a little more seasoning, but the mashed potatoes and asparagus were very tasty. The alcoholic specialty drinks we ordered we all quite delicious and came out quickly.

We had a lovely evening! Alex, our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the pork special, catch of the day, cordon blue and tenderloin. Every one enjoyed their food, which was presented beautifully and delicious! We had the creme brulee and bread pudding for dessert, both delicious!

I met a friend for happy hour and they had wonderful glasses of wine for 1/2 off on Wednesday nights. We had two appetizers. The artichoke balls were small but delicious. The calamari was rubbery and a disappointment. Our server was wonderful and we’ll be back.
