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 point of a Tapas bar?

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 we chose the patio. As usual, service was friendly and good. They have a nice... More

Stopped in here over the weekend, and considering it was the weekend before Halloween- it wasn't too crowded. I was glad because I just wanted to enjoy some quiet time. The food was great, the service was on point (the host was very attentive), and the music was not bad either. I tried the Ensalada con Manchego which was SOOOO... More

The place is small but cute, service good, but the food just wasn't much to talk about. They offer an array of tapas, but also a few 'entree' style items. We made the mistake of ordering both...stick to the tapas, they're better than the entrees (which also took about 30+ minutes to come out).

A fabulous place to have a snack, a drink or just people watch. A fine selection of wines, and a professional and curious staff.

Pros: Good location in market street Good drinks- nice wine selection and the Moscow mules are very good. Cons: Smoking. The patio is small, so if you want to enjoy the patio, be prepared for the employees hanging out there smoking the entire time. The food is just ok. The meat and cheese board was generic and lacking flavor, tasting... More

I am a tapas fan and love the small bites, but I was very disappointed in this place. The menu was promising although when I was told that 2 out of 3 plates we ordered would be altered because they had run out of certain ingredients I became skeptical. Who runs out of ingredients before the dinner crowd at 5... More
