Roger is the most fabulous waiter! He was dynamic, efficient, gave excellent recommendations (although most of us had dined there before he helped with the specials!!). Know we were on a time crunch (holiday celebration over lunch) he moved us "gently" through appetizers, first courses and mains and STILL had us finished in an hour and a half! He is my GO TO waiter at Willie G's now!!

This was a very convenient spot for me to meet a client for lunch. The service provided by Jose M. was impeccable and I always receive the same great service each time I visit. Definitely a great spot for a business meal, company party, or any other occasion.

LOVE the Galveston location. Saw the Houston Galleria location was open for Thanksgiving and made reservations. Delicious! Great, personable service. Miss the "old" Willie G's atmosphere and prices, but love the new upscale decor and awesome service. They were gracious, catering to my elderly mother and her walker. Thank you! Made our holiday!

We ordered Sea Bass for a special occasion in September for my birthday and it was very good. But upon our return for another special occasion in November, the same Sea Bass was not as good; tasted like cod liver oil and not cooked as thoroughly. We didn’t want to complain since it was a special occasion, but wanted to send in our feedback. I have been dining at Willie G’s since it opened. The garlic bread was very buttery and chunks of garlic; not like it used to be.

The special starter was too expensive. Each item on the plate had a separate charge. This was not explained until the bill was brought to the table. The price for the special starter was around $60.00. Had I known this, we might not have ordered it or a least known what we were getting into. I feel we were ripped off. I had to ask the waiter what the four or five different charges were on the bill. He then explained that's the way it gets charges.

You need to up front with your customers. I do not say we would not have ordered it anyway but we should have been told the price. Everyone left saying "this is the last time we eat here!" There were five of us.

Food was very tasty as expected. Service a little less than expected. The soup that was delivered was the wrong one and it was quite some time before the server came to the table so it could be replaced. Value perception dropped due to service misses

My wife and had a date night and we chose this restaurant. She had the ribeye steak which was cooked well to her desire. It could have used a little more seasoning. I had the seafood platter and was happy with the quality. Overall we did enjoy our meal and the atmophsere.

Willie G's served up a perfect meal. The food was excellent, the service was outstanding, and the food was reasonably priced. The food was served hot and cooked to perfection. The waitress was attentive without being intrusive. She checked on us several times but never appeared overly ambitious. We found special fixed price three course menu options that were an excellent value. The noise level was almost perfect - you could have a quiet conversation but yet there was enough background noise that still made the restaurant feel alive.

I have been going to Willie G's for decades and it continues to be one of my favorites in Houston.
