Schilleci’s is proud to offer a menu consisting of Louisiana classics like gumbo, etouffee, creole, bread pudding, and beignets along with variety of fresh fish from around the world, steaks, and lamb chops.

Excelent food & Service. Real cajun food. The best option in the area. We tried excellent Gumbo & Jambalaya, but The best is the Broiled Coast Gulf Sampler.. just amazing. And for dessert beignets..

My wife, adult son and I dined for lunch today. The food was outstanding. I had the Barimundi with Artichoke and Scallops topping on recommendation of waitress as opposed to the Mussels which looked good also. She was right. My plate was to die for!...Amazing good. My adult son and wife (not a seafood Lady) both had the Sauteed Crab Cakes. They both LOVED them. My son and I also shared the Calamari appetizer. Outstanding. Not a morsel remained! We ordered the Binet's to go. They are decadent pleasure! In a curious twist of fate, I was assigned the same waitress that I said was poor and inattentive on my last visit. THIS TIME EARNED OUTSTANDING. Her performance was excellent! If she recognized me, (Think so, frosty to begin but improved with my compliments) Her performance was excellent and deserves recognition. A final comment...I recommended your restaurant and Team to Tanji Patton of her show of "Good Taste". Through many dinners and lunches you have earned the praise. I have no idea if she will follow through but she did respond. I she does it, you will shine and have prime free advertising in Texas on her show. I hope she follow's through. My note to her was sincere and appreciative of your restaraunt. We want you and your team to survive Covid! Carl Lakey Sincerely Carl LakeyMore

Food is 5* as always! Such excellent menu items. Nothing missed or wished could be better. Service was 2-1/2*. She chatted with customers for 10 min per table except ours. Net result is it took her 30 min to circle back to our table. She...was horrible for us. I ordered desert with the very attentive table bus man, since our assigned waitress was busy chatting elsewhere. From ordering...Chatting....To serving...Chatting...To ordinary service...chatting...Too desert...Chatting.....Pattern here? First unacceptable service ever at this restaurant. She was dismal. Yet the food was amazing as always.More

Conveniently located next to the Hyatt centric hotel. We had lunch onsite and did takeout for dinner. Good po boys and salad options. Will definitely go back next trip to Houston.

I can say enough of how much we have enjoyed celebrating Mother’s Day at this exceptionally wonderful restaurant at Market Street the Woodlands. The food was outstanding, the wine menu was rich and great, and the service was maybe one of the best in H-town....Louis was really great and also all the other employees! We were checked all the time with gré courtesy and advised very well to helping our choices. Top restaurant in The Woodlands. Lobster Ravioli delicious and spring rolls dessert filled with cheesecake and bread pudding, extraordinary!More

Small but accommodating--I would strongly recommend a reservation even on weeknights. Very fine waitstaff, food is excellent with fresh fish of the day along with Cajun specialties. Wine list is good but pricey; plenty of US wines if you want to stay domestic. This is...a creole-style restaurant with a touch of Italian, so have your mouth set for fish and pasta.More

We went hear hoping to get some nice Louisiana seafood but came away disappointed. I had ordered the Scampi Style Jambalaya with shrimp and scallops and I had asked if it was spicy as that was the way I wanted it and the waiter said...it wasn't but that he could have them make it that way and I said that would be great but it had no spice hardly at all. There were only three shrimp and three scallops along with about one cup or less of Jambalaya and for $30 I thought this was a very meager serving. The other negative was that it took over a half an hour to get our food and they weren't nearly full of guest. The waiter never came back until we received our food to check on us or tell us what the hold up was. Will not go back and this was during the week and not on the weekend.More

This place is wonderful! We love the smoked crawfish queso dip for an appetizer, and the features are always delicious...but don’t leave without trying their famous bread pudding!
