We were seated in the bar area, and the bartender was our waiter. He seemed stretched thin having to attend to the bar, make drinks, and wait the tables in the bar area. He was friendly and helpful, but he was not attentive (since he was handling multiple roles).

We have only eaten at Woodlands American Grill for brunch, but that is what brings us back. Refreshing cocktails and reasonably-portioned meals are a plus. One in our party remarked that it was his favorite brunch so far in Dallas.

We went for dinner on a Saturday night. Restaurant is clean and modern. Nice upscale menu. Service was attentive and professional. Wedge salad has pickled ginger for a new twist. One of the best wedge salads I have had. I ordered the mahogany chicken and really liked it. Chicken was tender and moist. Chipotle-maple glaze is addictive. Wife had pasta salad and said it was good but too much chicken! Imagine that. Cheesecake was excellent, very close to the real thing from NYC. Very enjoyable dinner. We will return for sure.

This was average. Typical, Overpriced.
Note it wasn’t bad, but there was nothing special that warranted those price points.

I had lunch with family.....ahi tuna tower was awesome. Others said their meals were great.....Salmon salad, wedge salad and LBJ. Conversation was great, no overriding noise preventing us from hearing each other easily. Service was top rated. Not intrusive. I love this place. Only down side is the fruit and cheese platter is still missing from their menu.

Two couples had a wonderful brunch on Saturday. The mimosas were excellent and then unusual custom cocktails were outstanding. Each of us selected a different brunch entree and all enjoyed our meals. The food was prepared perfectly and served promptly. Just an outstanding experience. We will return there very soon.

The server was very attentive. He could not recommend a wine but handled the question with grace. The salmon entree and the salad were both excellent. The chicken cordon bleu was terrible. It was dry with a very sweet maple syrup flavor. There was no cheese or crust and just a small bit of smoked “cold cut” style ham buried in the chicken. The sweetness was overpowering. There is no bread served with the meal. I have ordered the flat iron steak salad previously and it was delicious. I will order that again next time!

Service was stellar! (Ashley L # 1095) She was efficient, patient, unobtrusive, courses were timed perfectly. This was a special occasion (retirement) and we wanted to enjoy a special meal - it was great. We chose Woodlands hoping that we could converse without shouting at each other, sadly that was not the case. the NOISE was awful. Perhaps upstairs seating area would have been quieter?

Thank you so much for the great feedback; we will let Ashley know she did a great job. Yes sometimes the back atrium, or the loft area are quieter for special occasions, and we are always happy to work on getting them booked for you! -Woodlands Team

My wife and I were dog sitting our daughter's dog the other night and wanted to get out of the house for dinner. We selected Woodlands due to their nice menu, friendly service and dog friendly side patio and we were not disappointed! We were able to be seated right away and our server Jessica brought out waters for both of us and our dog too. We started with an appetizer of Hummus with lavosh crisps which were very tasty. I then enjoyed a special filet mignon which was cooked perfectly and my wife was very pleased with her Cedar Plank Salmon salad. We accompanied our meal with two glasses of Rose wine and were completely satisfied.
