    Food was good, drinks were delightful, but the service outshined everything!!! For the price I would liked to have my food seasoned a bit more and been more clear about what items had spice in them so I would know before I ordered. Overall, it was a nice date night and we will probably return again the future!

    Our waitress was super friendly and our food came out super quick! Food was really delicious! We both ordered Filet Mignons and had it cooked Medium Rare. It was a little more on the rare side but other than that it was great. Great ambience for a date night, and looking forward to visiting again and trying something new!

    This was our first time @ Hearsay. It was recommended to us by a friend. It did not disappoint. The ambiance was nice, the staff was great, and the food was amazing. The only thing I would say, is that it was a little dark. We had to bring out our phone flashlights to read the menu lol. But other than that, everything and everyone was top notch. We'll definitely be back!

    Food and menu choices were very good. High top tables are a problem for someone short and we had to ask to be reseated - the table literally came up almost to my chin. Waitress was polite, got the order right but was not attentive - we all had to ask for refills on drinks.

    We had reserve a table inside but the noise level was such that we were unable to carry on a conversation without yelling. So we moved outside, which was an improvement. While we were talking and catching up the waitress returned about every minute to take our order, but we had not had time to review the menu. We were quite impressed with the food and drinks, which were excellent! We had intended to order a second drink, but once the food was served, the waitress disappeared and by the time she emerged we needed to leave and had to close our tab. I would recommend to friends if they could get an outside table and an attentive waitperson.

    The food and ambience was amazing. The only negative is that they did not let us just experience both. They were more concerned with turning tables over quickly. Our entrees arrived only a couple of minutes after the appetizers, and the whole thing felt rushed.

    Food was good other than the fish tacos. They were bland and a bit soggy. I liked the Buffalo shrimp. My husband enjoyed the meatballs. The charcuterie board was really good. Waitress was good and non intrusive.We sat on the patio with heaters which was nice. Only ones out there other than another foursome on the patio but they were incredibly loud, which I know is hard to control. Overall a good experience.

    I had expected a little more given the YELP reviews. The restaurant seemed especially dark and there was little in the way of holiday decorations which you might expect this time of year. Plus, the even though the temp outside was 65 degrees, they had air conditioning set low so it was pretty chilly inside. The appetizers of Hagyu meatballs and shrimp were terrific, but the crab encrusted redfish was overcooked. The crab crusting had been so overcooked it came out with consistency of taffy and sat separately on top of the redfish like a dog chew. I will say our server was very good and polite, my guest and I both sat a the table and had grab her attention for simple things like ice tea refills or ice in our drinks. The restaurant was not overly busy, so I probably would have expected a little more attention without having to flag our server down each time. Maybe they were just having a bad day.

    Arrived for our 4 pm reservation, which was the only time they said was available. Hostess tried to seat us by kitchen door, then asked to move one table over. She got flustered by this request, went back to the front and never came back. We then sat there for 20 minutes with no menu, silverware, nothing. We were just ignored in the middle of the restaurant 15 feet from the bar. Finally we went to the bar and asked for a menu. We almost got up and left. After that the server came over and the service was good.

    Made a reservation for inside and they seat us so that we can view the ugly kitchen when the door swings open and shut. We had to ask to be moved. There where plenty of other tables open, why didn’t they just seat us at a another table from the beginning. No one wants to see into the kitchen. The Texas charcuterie board was the best. Everything else was ok food wise.

    First time visiting The Woodlands location and was dissapointed. Beautiful facility and good service but all my party of 4 were not too impressed with the food. We had simple lunch fare of fish sandwitches, fish tacos, and a burger. All was ok but none of the items were good enough for us to come back for with so many great places in The Woodlands that do a better job. The worst items served were the waffle fries with the meal that tasted as if they had been sitting around too long.

    Had the blackened red fish, tacos and corn casserole - very good. Husband had the jumbo stuffed shrimp with grits- Delicious! So big, he couldn’t finish the whole order. Especially the deviled egg trio, antebellum of soup. Fun place to spend a Saturday night.

    We had reservations for the patio. We sat for 10 minutes without being greeted by the server. Service was good once we were greeted. Overall average food and experience at best. This used to be one of my favorites, but with so many options in the woodlands, this is probably my last visit.

    Seated 15 minutes before our reservations and believe it or not had food two minutes before our reservations. Yes order taken and served within 13 minutes of sitting down. Uncomfortably quick, overall food was good not great but definitely good. Service was on par with what you'd expect at this price point. We would do it again on another date night.
