The Woodlawn Inn
Mother's Day Brunch made this a special occasion and the Woodlawn Inn carried this out with flying colours. The blending of a hot meal with the buffet for a single price was a nice touch. The dessert table was spectacular.
As usual the food and service were exemplary Good attention to detail and personal contact between owners and guests is always appreciated. A GEM in the unfortunate world where such fine dining establishments are few and far between.
Great food, great service. Our favourite restaurant in Cobourg. Never disappointed.
Very nice restaurant. The wines were unusually good.
The food was phenomenal. The employees courteous, and accommodating. The gluten free bread was great. Friday night the volume was quite loud, but Saturday and Sunday breakfasts were nice and quiet.
A very comfortable setting for dining with family or friends. We found an adult-aged clientele in a moderately quiet room. The service was very prompt and the food was quite good. We will visit again.
Staff was very attentive and accommodating to the celiac person in the party, brought a tear to her eye when a supervisor suggested a creme brulee in lieu of the fruit and yogourt dessert choice available to her. They went above and beyond preparing a smoked salmon eggs bennie on a gluten-free muffin too. The mimosa was delicious.
Service was great and the food was just as good .
Wonderful service and very good food and excellent menu and wine list
I gave 4 stars as I reserve 5 for something exceptional. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Cobourg / Port-hope area, best I have found.
Our first time at the restaurant and will definitely be returning. Food was very well presented, flavourful and the portions were more than adequate. We all did the Prix Fixe menu and were very happy with our selections. The one downfall was the service at the end of the evening, we had to wait quite a while to get our bill at the end of evening due to the fact that our server was overwhelmed, she apologized stating her co-worker called in sick, management issue and not meant to reflect on the server.
We loved it. The place is charming, our waitress was fantastic and the food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Would definitely go back.
Fantastic food and service and ambience. We love eating here and highly recommend it.
Lovely dinner - excellent food and warm, friendly service. Large portions beautifully prepared and served nice and hot! Dessert was a generous portion and most fresh & delicious. Thank you.
The food was amazing, probably some of the best that we have ever been served!
I think our expectations were just not inline with what the experience could offer. The food was just ok... I had the tourtiere and the pastry was woefully under baked and then we had the lamb and it was over cooked. We stayed in one of the
cottage suites and again just okay... There was a large pile of hair in the shower and everything just seemed a little run down. However, the beds were really comfortable and the staff went out of their way to acknowledge a birthday, which was very appreciated! I think we just expected more for the prices that were charged... Nothing was cheap but what we received did not align with the price paid.
Lovely meal . Great service. Took our son and his wife to celebrate their birthdays. They had never been. It was very enjoyable.
Hi quality service for amazing value. The dining experience was exceptional once again as was the hotel experience.
Always treated properly, we enjoyed another fantastic meal experience recently for my Mother's 87th birthday. The Inn was busy with a wedding and another birthday celebration, as well as regular guests, but we were treated to delicious meal and just the right amount of personal attention.
The food was not worth the price. The potatoes tasted like they were cooked on a dirty grill top and weren't seasoned at all. The eggs Benedict were nothing to write home about and the English muffins were stale. The tiramisu was lovely but the presentation was outdated. There was one waitress and she seemed to have difficulty keeping up with the amount of tables judging by how long we waited to order, get our bill and pay. Definitely wouldn't go back.
We’ve been to the restaurant on three occasions now.
We love it.
The food has always been excellent and the service is great.
My wife and I love it and will continue to visit for our special nights out.
I will say that I have always stuck with the beef options. This isn’t to say that the rest of their entrees aren’t amazing - I just really love their beef. Kudos to their chef!
My go to is a steak and caeser salad. I usually experiment with the appetizers and try something new in that department. Always been happy
As for a desert, their tiramisu is fantastic as well.
I have also appreciated the owner and he make time to make sure your experience is going well
Wonderful dinner as usual. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable and a pleasure to speak with. Everything was fabulous, you make our special occasions perfect every time. Thank you.
We attent Woodlawn once a month are always happy with our experiences. The Dover sole and lobster Fettecunie is to die for. Michelle is the best. Desert might even be better. You decide!
The food was very very good! The filet was more than perfectly cooked and the trout was seasoned with a light hand and a knowledge of how to prepare fish. So delicious!
The food is very good, the service is excellent and I love that it’s a quiet intimate space where the four of us could easily chat and enjoy ourselves.
Ambiance was light, quiet. We were able to hear ourself speak.
Always enjoy coming here.
Excellent food, great service in elegant dining room. Enjoyed the opportunity for quiet conversation.
We had a very nice, delicious meal prior to going out to meet-up with friends. Service was excellent.
Beautiful old building, food was excellent, and staff was courteous. Well worth a visit for a nice dinner.
As always, the Woodlawn's service was impeccable, the food and wine excellent and the setting very comfortable. The only negative was the loudness of the music coming from the speaker above the table. When we mentioned it to our server, it was turned down.
We recently celebrated my mother's 80th birthday at The Woodlawn Inn, and we felt very welcomed. There were seven of us, and each of us enjoyed our meal very much. Staff were attentive and made us feel like we were valued and our presence appreciated. Great care was taken to make sure that our special family evening was just that, special.
Dinner was excellent! The wine list was unreal. Best place in town for cozy fine dinning
The food was excellent, the service was wonderful. You are not rushed at all. We were able to sit, relax and enjoy our food and wine. We will definitely return with our friends...
I always enjoy a special occasion at Woodlawn Inn!! Fine dining at it's finest!! Stephen is always so friendly and welcoming!! This is certainly a Cobourg jewel!!
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The dining room had a tastefully sparkly ambience, the staff were very helpful & friendly & the food was scrumptious right down to the last drop of coffee at the end. A lovely experience on a drizzly New Year's Eve. Thanks to everyone at the Woodlawn!
Enjoyed a lovely post Christmas brunch with family. Very nice atmosphere with delicious food.
Definitely will return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch there. Very beautiful setting. Historic building. Dry nice that Mr Della Casa stopped by to say hello.
The Woodlawn Inn is a wonderful dining experience. We had our anniversary dinner and my birthday there this past Saturday. The service was impeccable and the food was excellent.
We HGHLY recommend going to the Woodlawn for any special occasion. The tables are separated enough that you don’t overhear other conversations but we noticed that they also have dining rooms for larger groups.
The bar in the lounge where you can wait for your guests to arrive looked VERY nice and would be a pleasant place to have a quiet drink with your significant other.
Although staff was fairly friendly, poor service and very slow. Asked for coffee, and after nothing, waited 20 mins until asking again. Food was cold and not tasty, and breakfast came with 6-8 small pieces of potatoes hash. A friend has recommended it, but probably will never return again. Not worth the money.
The food was simply terrible. Everyone in our party of four was of the same opinion. This is the second time we have had the same experience. We will not return.
Dear Buck, Thanks for the feedback and for trying us on two occasions. I am sorry for your experience with us. I am not sure what went wrong but I take responsibility for all of our guests satisfaction. I would welcome any additional feedback you could give me so that our team can do a better job. Please reach out to me if you can, I would be happy to know a little more about your time with us. Sincerely, Stephen Della Casa
