I cannot tell you if the food is good because we never got it. The drinks were great and the servers were trying very hard ( I do not blame them at all). This place is very small but the area gets busy on nights...More

Located in one of the finest outside shopping centers (Market Street) in the Houston area, right across the street from The Woodlands Mall. A good place for sitting outside and people-watching while enjoying small plate tapas and Spanish wine.

My date and I sat outside celebrating his birthday. The waiter was very helpful to point out what we would probably like between two choices. We had the goat cheese and empanadas and chocolate brownie. I remember the chocolate brownie the best! :)

Well 1252 has had a makeover. New decor is fresher than before. Unfortunately they overhauled the menu and they only have about 8 Tapas items now. I can understand why it might be easier to have a smaller menu but aren't they missing the whole...More

This is one of very favorite restaurants in the Woodlands, and since it is close to my wife's favorite store, Lulu Kemin, we hit it ten when visiting Houston. It is clean, spare and inviting. There is an indoor room with bar, but this time...More
