They have two wine lists. One is the regular list that goes out with every menu. The second is a more upscale one. Food is fabulous, and I’ve tried several things on their menu to say it is consistently delicious. Friendly staff, and nice background music that is loud enough to hear the song but doesn’t overwhelm your dinner companions’ dinner conversation. It is my regular go to spot whenever I am in Waterloo

I normally love Wildcraft but we had a bad experience yesterday. I made an online reservation and confirmed it by text the day before we were to go in. BUT when we arrived, the hostesses couldn't find our reservation and we did not get the seating we requested. We did get a table and while waiting for our drinks (and we couldn't get our first menu choice because the restaurant was out of beets and gingerroot) I got a call from Wildcraft asking if we were coming in or not. Before I could even answer the person calling said "Oh, you're already sitting.".... We asked for vegan menus and were given the regular ones. Once we got the right menus, we ordered the vegan burgers, but were given burgers made from cows, pigs and cheese. I have been vegan for nearly 7 years and work with animals. Having their carcasses served to me was repulsive. :( Our vegan burgers were highly salted but still good. Worth the hassle though? I dunno. This wasn't Wildcraft's best day.

We had a great time. Service was great and the food was quite good. One of the better steaks I have had in a very long time. Rivals the steak houses in Chicago for quality and prep

We had reservations for the patio. When we arrived we were greeted at the door and taken to our seat. Unfortunately it was a cool night and we were placed at a table not near any of the heaters. I asked if we could sit at another table that was available near the fire pit. I was told no and placed at a 6 sitter high rise by the door and at the bar. There was more than one available table and our hostess didn’t even offer to go check. That table and a few others remained open the entire time we were there. We left at 10pm. I was very disappointed as it was a date night with my partner. We also waited a long time to even be offered a drink but we were understanding as we know the hospitality industry has been hit hard. Our servers, we had two, not sure why that happened but they were both great! Friendly and fun. The food was good.

Possibly one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. Our server was new (it was the first thing she told us.) she brought us the wrong beer but we didn’t complain because we didn’t think it was a huge deal. When our mains arrived, my beef short ribs were so over cooked that I couldn’t even cut through them and when I did they were so dry to chew. Our sever came over to ask how our food was but I hadn’t eaten the meat yet so I couldn’t tell her. But then she disappeared and never came back for the entire time? Then another server finally cleared our plates and asked why I hadn’t eaten my meal. I told him why and he apologized and left. Then another sever came over and asked if we wanted dessert. We said yes to 2 cake pops (which were delicious and totally the best part of the meal.) she comes back with our bill and nothing is comp’d or discounted. Then the male server who cleared our plates must have told her about my issue and she comes back with a new bill saying she comp’d our $6 cake pops! My meal was $32 and I ate maybe $2 of it. The service was terrible. I still am not sure where our original server went?! We aren’t hard people to please but this experience was horrible. We will not be back.

All good except the table was in direct sunlight with no umbrella near the table and in a high traffic location. Understandably it’s difficult to find appropriate seating during Covid-19 but this did hamper our experience.
The food was delicious!
