    Love the Woodlands - great spot in the neighborhood. For some reason Saturday it was a little challenging to get the check and clear out. And I should have ordered salad dressing on the site - but that's about it.

    Really nice lunch spot that is not too loud. You can enjoy business meetings and conversations in a relaxed atmosphere. Decor is wood and quiet neutrals adding to the conservative but modern experience. Food is really good and served promptly. booths can be a little small in bar, but overall a great experience.

    We always enjoy Woodlands! We were graciously greeted by Maribel, such a friendly welcome. We especially like Tuesday's half price bottles of wine! Michael took very good care of us. We go to Woodlands frequently but I had never tried the crab cakes. I will be having them more often, very good1 But All of their food is excellent. Great neighborhood place for any occasion.

    My experience started at the front door when I was greeted by the smile of Marybell. She was so sweet from the moment and I walked in and took me to a booth, as I had requested. My great dining experience continued when I was greeted by another smiling face, our server Jessica. So professional, friendly and helpful. She provided us with excellent food and drink suggestions! We will definitely be returning and can’t wait to have the Tuna tower again. Thanks Woodlands!
