The Wood Tavern - Norwood Hotel
Famous for their ribs, mine were overcooked and tough. They replaced them immediately, and were delicious!
Really nice steak sandwich and one of the better Caesar salads I've had.
Thank you for coming to dine with us at The Wood Tavern and for taking the time to share your experience! We can't wait to see you again soon!
The restaurant was good but they didn’t even know I had a reservation through OpenTable??? So there was no point in reserving through this service?
I went for dinner with my sisters and my mom. Service was friendly and attentive, the food and wine were very good.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your visit, we hope to see you back soon!
Great ambience, good seating, good vibe and good food.
Beautiful atmosphere. Good food. Friendly staff.
First time since renovation. Loved it! I’ll be back
Good service, good food-maybe overpriced. Ambience was great, live music.
Outstanding food. Outstanding service. Very affordable.
Beautifully renovated but the service was out to lunch watched our appetizers not get delliverd on the first attempt cause the servers didnt know which table to send it to.
Missed the mark on taste for our burger (could of used a tomato or something) And I dont know how you can screw up quesadillas ,but if you burn them that will usually do it .
waited close to one hour for our order, poor waiter kept coming back and apologizing, some food was cold when it came. stick to the basic parts of the menu, the noise level is high but sitting against the back walls make it tolerable
Great smoked olives, just a bit saltier than last time. Brussel sprouts very good, but a bit under cooked for overall softness. Great ribs and beer on tap (Stone angel)
Thanks for the constructive feedback and comments, hope to see you back again soon!
Very salty burger and over done. reserved a table on line, put us in the cold section when there was many empty tables.
Server was excellent but had too many tables to deal with .
excess management staff . Could have been just a bad night i guess, go to Rae & Jerrys,better value and consistency.
Was just way too loud to talk...we were all shouting. Food was decent but not great...think everyone found some stuff was too salty
Really great cocktails! The band was amazing!!!
It tends to be a little chilly unless it’s quite crowded. This was my second visit so I brought a neck warmer which I was glad to have to begin the evening. Eventually it filled up so it wasn’t necessary. Our waiter was very informative and gave good suggestions. The onion rings are terrific. I had the salmon. Very delicious. It was quite responsibly priced.
Restaurant cold,burger very dry & service average.
Food was excellent, service was great, band was awesome!
The food was good but the music was too loud and we could not have a conversation with our friends.
I found it quite expensive for lunch.
I don't think we would eat there again.
Hi Marg, thank you for the feedback, we do try to keep our music levels comfortable for our guests and can always turn things down if needed, hope to see you back.
When we got into the restaurant no one acknowledged us for about 5 mins, I had to get someone’s attention to let them know we had a reservation. Food was good. Our server was okay but did not fill my partners coffee until he asked and she did not acknowledge his birthday despite the fact I made a special note on the reservation. We felt rushed to pay the bill and were not offered more drinks or even a dessert menu which we were planning on ordering. Not happy with service.
Excellent brunch! Perfect portions, very tasty, great service
So glad you enjoyed the brunch! Hope to see you back soon.
Our server was phenomenal, though the manager was terrible and rude. We ordered steak sandwiches and it took 45 minutes to come out. At 8:00 in the evening. After our food came out our steaks were cooked horribly wrong. We ordered medium and medium rare. The steaks came out blue rare and rare. They were cold. Our server was so kind about it and went to get the manager, when he came he took all of our food and cutlery and said it would be redone in 10 minutes. 20 minutes later it comes out with no cutlery. I had to get up and find the manager who looked directly at me as I walked up to him and proceeded to walk away. When I finally got him to stop he then gave me dessert forks. For our steaks.
They obviously didn’t rest the steaks as our bread was so soggy it was stuck to the steak and plate. We were told the bread was like that because of the mushrooms we had ordered for our steak and that nothing could be done. I didn’t eat my steak the second round as it was well done. We didn’t pay for our food but the whole ordeal was over an hour and a half and we left starving and uncomfortable with how management treated us.
I called and left a message on the card I was given and also never received a response. The management is terrible.
But once again - our server was INCREDIBLE! She was kind and understanding.
Hi MandyB, I'm so glad we were able to connect, I am again very sorry that the incident wasn't handled better for you night of. We hope to see you back again. Sincerely, Melissa
Everything was amazing especially the fries and burger. Desserts were also fantastic!!! Definitely recommend The Wood. Can’t wait to go again.
Thanks for the great rating and recommendation!
Sirloin steak sandwich was top notch. The fish with fish and chips was bland - and just a tad under-cooked. French fries - very good. Cole slaw - also bland.
Thanks for the great review and feedback, hope to see you back soon!
We were celebrating a friends birthday and the experienced and knowledgeable server made our celebrating that much more special. So special in fact, that my husband and I are going back on Friday. Thank you MacKenzie!!!
Thanks for the great rating and review, we will be sure to get the compliment to your server Mackenzie. We are lucky to have her on our team!
It was good but they didn’t have our reservation in their system but they were able to accommodate us
Leisurely dinner planned post Jets game. Arrived early and enjoyed a couple appetizers and cocktails before the full dinner menu was made available. Love the atmosphere!
All enjoyed the food - appetizers, entrees and desserts. We will be back!
One comment I would offer is to add signage to the host stand or the entry from hotel lobby as it is not apparent you have arrived at the Wood Tavern
Wow, the update to the Norwood Hotel's tavern is specular. It's got a modern vibe with the surroundings and the menu. One of us had the burger with a side of soup, the other had the sausage. Both meals were good tho the sausage was a bit too charred for my liking. The servers are super helpful and gave us a verbal tour of the new digs and explained the differences in the menu between the Pauline Restaurant (brunch) and the Wood Tavern (all day) as well as showing us the private areas for groups. We'll be back and we'll try Pauline's.
Great food, great ambience, comfy seating and a menu that meets everyone’s needs and was very reasonable. I had the fried chicken sandwich and it was amazing, others had the smoked meat and were also very happy.
Some of the lighting was too bright and right in your eye.
Have already recommended your restaurant after yesterday’s visit!
Our server went above and beyond to ensure we knew the menu and the options. Before she came to take our order, we had decided what we were going to order, but her description of the options completely changed our minds. After our meal, my guest and myself mentioned how grateful we were for the server’s recommendations.
The chicken in sandwich was overcooked and quesadilla was also a little on dark side. Wrap needed more filling.
The new fire roaated great smoked food. Warm atmosphere.
Very confusing front entrance ... not sure why the hostess desk is at the back of restaurant. No signs saying where it is and that you need to wait to be seated.
Hi we actually have quite a few entrances, mainly for guest convenience. Our main entrance is located off our hotel lobby where the majority of guest traffic enters this is why the host station is situated in that location. There are usually people working at all entrance points to assist guests with getting seated, signage is really great advice though, we will definitely take that into consideration. Thank you
Ambiance and service great but unfortunately the food was over fried.
Love it here! Cool vibes and the food is always great but the biggest positive was the great service by Richard!!!
Hi Shay, Thanks for the great review! We agree we are very lucky to have Richard on our team. Thank you so much for sharing.
So, I’m in Winnipeg visiting family for the holidays. Wanted a casual dinner out. I got a recommendation to The Wood Tavern. I’m so glad we went! Simply amazing. Started things off with the Duck Fat Poutine. Amazing flavours! The smaller fries were a bonus as they weren’t soggy like so many poutines. For dinner, we both had the True Canadian Burger with salads, one house and one awesome Caesar. Hands down, one of the best burgers I’ve ever had! Why? Sure, the perfectly seasoned in house ground beef, the fresh artisan bun and toppings were tasty. But, what really put this burger over the top was the wood fired grill. This took my burger experience to a whole new level. Dessert was the Cheesecake with an excellent Coconut Graham Crust, Toasted Coconut and Caramel Sauce. Wow! So good!
I don’t know too many restaurants, if any, that have a wood fired grill. This is a restaurant concept that I can totally recommend. I can’t wait to my next visit to the Peg and The Wood Tavern!
Hi SeattleVanGuy, Thank you for the great review and recommendation! We are actually the home of the largest grill works wood fire grill in Canada, glad to hear it's doing it's job of making great food better. Hope to see you back soon, happy travels.
Our waitress was very pleasant. We enjoyed our food and were happy that they had gluten free options as we had someone in our party that is celiac.
The food was very nice. It was Christmas and the kitchen did close earlier, but the waitress failed to warn us that the bar would also be closing, so I could not order a glass of wine when the food arrived (even though it still was before eight - it was 19:45). And considering it was my birthday, I was very disappointed.
I would go again and hope for a better service.
It’s far too loud in there. I can never hear the people I’m with. We went with a group of 5 last week, and all of us said the same thing about the noise. Food was good. Service was great. Prices are high.
