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.

The tuna tower appetizer was good, but the gluten free had very course greens on the bottom layer. The chicken quinoa dinner was dry and flavorless. The cheesecake had a weird texture and tasted like it was missing the key ingredient, cream cheese.

The trout with Sauteed spinach and a stuffed artichoke heart was fabulous. The bread pudding was to die for!

My hamburger was overcooked but the sweet potato fries were crispy and delicious.

The service was spotty, water was never refilled and the waiter was slow to remove dishes as we finished our meals.

Overall we had a lovely experience for my mom's 89 birthday lunch.

A neighborhood institution, not too large and therefore best reserved ahead, which also lets you specify which of its areas you prefer. The menu is varied and the kitchen always delivers.

My husband and I both ordered the c.o.b.a.l.t. sandwich - It was terrible - a huge thick piece of chicken (it was tender) but too thick to be on a sandwich. It was totally dry - basically NO dressing - just dry, dry, dry. No bacon - menu said bacon - told waiter there was no bacon on sandwich - he said it wasn’t supposed to have bacon. Only thing good was the pickle on top. No avocado on one. Waiter brought two slices of avocado in container since we had finished eating. Sweet potato fries very good.
