Consistently good. Love the atmosphere. Great for groups. John, Drew and staff will take care of you. I love the Cedar Plank Salmon salad, the pasta, and the burger and appetizers are all good.

We always like the Woodlands Grill. Wish that there was some variation on the menu. Sometimes the service is slow.

Everyone enjoyed their meal. One person did not like the salmon glaze but the fish was good once scraped off. Service was attentive but not overbearing.

We were a party of 8 but received great service that was attentive but not cumbersome. All of the meals, including the meal from the kid's menu, were very good. I am glad we ate there for New Year's Eve with family.

As always, the food and service were excellent. Recommended Mahagony Chicken to our friends who enjoyed it as much as I always do. I actually had the trout and it was also very good.

Been twice. Busy, but not so noisy that you can't carry on a conversation. Both times the the wait was a little too long before we were greeted at the table by the waiter. Other than that, very good food and service.

Even though I had my fish simply grilled it was so tasty. The sides were excellent too. Didn't care for the TV with the sports channel on but it was not loud so it was not a distraction.

We love the Woodlands. It is consistently delicious with a varied menu...healthy choices or comfort food. Service is always friendly and efficient. Our go-to place when we decide to go out for a quick bite or a nice dinner.

Was fairly typical. I made the reservation using Open table and they had a table for us within 15 minutes.
good food, with occasional menu changes that are usually good but unfortunately, the favorite dish of two in the party was recently taken off the menu, including the favorite cocktail.
The wine menu is always nice
The waiter was good, the service was good but not exceptional

Large group of six. Everyone enjoyed their food. I was disappointed that sugar-free syrup wasn’t available and the way the limited amount of syrup was served (in small bowls) was very awkward and messy.

Our waiter was a little too “over-the-top” for our group.

I lived in a neighborhood very close to The Woodlands for a few years without ever trying it. I am glad we finally did. I have only been once, but everything we ate was good, the service was outstanding, and the ambiance is that of a 5 star restaurant downtown, but with a neighborhood feel. The cook delivered the food to our table from the kitchen himself and gave us some free chocolate on the house (that was fantastic). The only downfall for beer drinkers is there is nothing on tap.

I would rate the food very good - nothing truly exceptional but quite good and the service also very good - unobstrusive, relaxed, not trying to up sell, and not the smarmy overly friendly wait staff you find at some restaurants these days. Atmosphere is very pleasant and the noise level not anywhere near as deafening as most restaurants and we could all talk - 4 of us - without shouting! I like this restaurant and have been many times - I will return.

My wife and I had two hours to kill while our son was at a homecoming dance. We booked Woodlands due to its close proximity to the school. We had no expectations walking through the door. Neither one of us did not expect the food and service to be so excellent. Every dish delicious with surprisingly complex flavors. The food, atmosphere, and services were exceptional! Angela was great. We will clearly have to come back, so many great options to choose from.
