My fave restaurant!
Woodberry Kitchen is the absolute best. I'm an in awe of how they accomplish so much in there restaurant. Not only is the food local, it's masterfully prepared and the service that accompanies it is top notch. Highly recommend!
The ambience of Woodberry Kitchen is its best attribute. Our table was upstairs in the gallery. The sense of space in the restored mill building was excellent. The acoustics did not sufficiently dampen the noise levels though, which made it hard to hear your fellow diners during conversation.
The waiters and waitresses had to hand carry the dinner plates up the stairs, which meant a substantial wait for the first to be served until the whole party had been served. That meant plates that were piping hot when they left the first floor kitchen were substantially cooler when the first bite was taken after politely eating for all to be served. A dumb waiter conveying the plates to the service area on the second floor gallery would be a huge improvement.
As a result the value rating is low. The high cost being matched with less than hot food.
we're continually charmed by Woodberry Kitchen -- great food, great place, great staff. it's always worth the trip up from DC!
Haven't been to Woodberry Kitchen since we moved out of the neighborhood 4 years ago, so we were really looking forward to this return trip. The restaurant is still up to the same high standards, with interesting menu items and great service. We really enjoyed the baked clams and trout fritters.
Overall great. Chilaquiles were weird and small. Usually it’s heavier on the tortilla (cut in triangles not strips) and traditionally doesn’t have cinnamon.
Seeing old friends
Always good. Never had a bad experience here ever.
Woodberry continues to be a Baltimore treasure. Service is impeccable and the menu has plenty to satisfy lovers of meat and fish and vegetarians alike. We found a very good Portugese wine (from the Alentejo region) for just $40, a bargain on that list. I was surprised that our food seemed to take longer than usual--the restaurant was full, but it seems like Woodberry could handle that crowd. And my mahi mahi was a bit overdone (perhaps it was awaiting one of the plates to go with our meal). So some rough spots, but the menu continues to be inventive and we felt comfortable despite the loudness around us.
Outstanding service and food. Creative drinks, food. Lively chic vibe. Crab pot was full of lumps of crabs. The chef made the best gluten free bisquits & bread. Black bass was very favorable but know it is a whole fish & not fillet. My son enjoyed the pork chop & fixings. Great presentation of food & drinks. Try the wholly water!
Servers were exceptional and the food was delicious.
From the popcorn app to the engaging paw paw conversation offered by one of the servers, the meal and ambience was fantastic! The servers are knowledgeable and care about the quality of your experience. There's something on the menu for every taste and penchant!
Everything was great as always. Only complaint was that we showed at 515 (with toddler) and didn't get our dinner for well over an hour. Staff was on it well enough to bring over some snack without having to ask while we waited
As always my husband and I enjoyed everything on our plates, down to the garnish! The handcrafted signature drinks were amazing as usual. We tried two new ones this time, the Pits which included smoked peach pits, skins and pulp with our whisky which was Amazing, and 'where there's smoke' this drink was warm, full with a hint of hickory which was nothing short of harmonious after the baked clams. If you havent taken the time to get a reservation here, then DO IT, now...seriously you won't regret it. The outdoor seating in the fall is beautiful btw.
Always love Woodberry kitchen, especially when I am entertaining friends from out of town. I know the atmosphere, service, and food will always be a winner and show some of the best that Baltimore has to offer.
My fiancee & I have been frequenting Woodberry Kitchen approximately 3 times a year since it opened its doors. Our visits are always for special occasions usually revolving around family visits. Over the years, our experience has went from amazing to below average. We have had handicapped and/or family members with health problems & the staff (to this day) have always been genuine and accommodating ensuring we always have first floor seating. We eat a plant-based food diet due to dairy allergies & personal choice. In the past the kitchen has always been able to accommodate us & deliver exceptional food alternatives/modifications. With this recent visit, the selection was minimal & for our entree we ended up paying $20/plate for a piece of fried polenta, a small handful of greens, 3 broccoli florets & a smear of sauce. It was underwhelming to say the least although we don't choose this restaurant for the vegan selection but for the ambiance, service, & animal food selection for our family. The dining room was obnoxiously loud & we couldn't hear each other speak. Our server was very kind but clearly short-staffed & overwhelmed. It took over 20 minutes to get two orders of popcorn. Our glasses went empty several times & refills took a substantial time. Our small plates/appetizers all were delivered at the same time even though we ordered them 20 minutes apart. Our flatbread was taken from the table to be boxed up but the staff first loaded all of our used utensils on that same platter which we found odd. Even the bathrooms were a mess & there were no paper towels. The new location of the valet service is also bizarre. You have to drive into the parking lot beyond the restaurant, have the valet drive park the car 20 feet away within that same lot, then walk back to the restaurant. At the end of the evening we gave the driver $5 to hand us our keys & to drive the car out of the parking space we were standing directly in front of. This will be the last time we dine here.
Food was great but service was lacking. We were served this wonderful hot apple
Pie but without utensils. It took 3 people and 10 minutes to get silverware to eat our now like warm apple pie. The waitress was wonderful but obviously had too many tables. My sons dinner took over an hour to come out. Not their best showing
I've dined at Woodberry a handful times over the past three years. The restaurant consistently provides a great experience. Flavorful, seasonal food choices (there are small plates and large plates), solid service, and reasonable prices. The highlight this time was the sommelier, Morgan. He was knowledgeable and fun; he clearly enjoys his job and that was infectious for our table. It's definitely loud and busy, so you have to be in the mood for that atmosphere when you go.
It's a nice place, but terribly over-priced for what you actually get. The food is good, definitely not great. Portions are a decent size, but again, you're paying top dollar for everything. I wouldn't say I'd never go back, but it certainly wouldn't be my first choice for a dinner occasion.
This was our first visit. We dined there for my birthday. The staff is so welcoming and knowledgeable. They explained the menu, they explained our choices as they were served to us. They brought a beautiful complimentary dessert for my birthday. All in all a wonderful dining experience. We will definitely be back!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Baltimore. Our meal encompassed multiple drink selections, appetizers and separate entrees. Everything we were served was excellent.
In addition, the wait staff was courteous, attentive, and very helpful in assisting with both drink and food choices.
This was a special occasion for us, and Woodberry did not disappoint. Highly recommended.
Wonderful menu and great food. Service is extremely poor, without apology and with attitude.
Woodberry is a staple of food in Baltimore, a must do
Love the food atmosphere and friendly staff, great place for our anniversary dinner!
Woodberry lives up to it’s reputation. I’m rarely impressed and am very happy to say that the food and overall experience exceeded expectations. Thank you!!
Just a great fun place with delicious food and excellent service
Our waiter was good at describing and recommending dishes, but he never gave us his name. The drinks were great, but a tad bit pricey. The chicken Enchiladas were tasty. Overall a great meal.
The place is nice but our reservation was at 9 and our table was not ready until 9:40. I felt as if they were just holding us at the bar.
Visiting Baltimore for a quick overnight. Reserved a table earlier in the week for 8:30PM on Friday night. Inbound traffic delayed us by 30 minutes; I called the restaurant well before the reservation and they had no problem updating it for a later time. We arrived shortly after 9PM and waited approximately 15 minutes for a table - the place was still VERY busy. The location is tucked away although only 10 minutes from the inner harbor. The restaurant is housed inside an old ironworks plant - three story ceilings, all exposed brick - two dining rooms, a quieter and more intimate space on the right before the host stand and the general kitchen-bar-two story dining area. If you want a fun and lively setting, pick the kitchen area. If looking for a nice lower intensity evening, pick the separate dining room. Service was great - Rachel offered up excellent recommendations, knowledgable dish insight, and a jovial engagement. Cocktails and wine were good; dishes were excellent. Since it was late, we picked a few small dishes and a flatbread. The spicy cheese was excellent, their take on clams casino was first rate, and the cured pork flatbread was excellent. We finished with an apple pie with oat and honey ice cream and a pluot (yes new for me!) tart with peach sorbet. We would definitely return - the kitchen turns out great food in a neat building with good service.
Tasty food. Super late to seat reservations. I’ve been here four times, each time with a reservation. I have consistently been sat 30-45 minutes after my scheduled reservation time.
outstanding food and experience. The people were so nice. Perfect for a date night!
Always great! The food never disappoints and the wine suggestions are always fun.
Great, professional, efficient, knowledgeable staff
Fantastic as always, and great service as always. Had two folks with me, neither of whom had been before, and they both seemed to really enjoy their meals and the environment.
Great food and service! Our waiters generated so much trust that one of my companions put himself in their hands and allowed them to order for him. He was thrilled with results from the craft IPA to the summer greens salad, the fresh (home-raised!) oysters to the giant Tilghman Island crab cake. Another had a whole sea bass and another ordered trout. I had the summer salad, served with a delightful buttermilk dressing and a chicken enchilada that was so good I took it home to finish. What a meal!!
Nancy was a great server!!!
She was patient with us as it was our first time at the restaurant.
After a previous O.K. experience, we returned primarily because of the gluten free menu. After we were first seated (with no wait), the waitress arrived pretty quickly. She then disappeared for a while before returning to take our drink orders. Then the drinks took a while to come. In total, it was 30 minutes after we were seated before we got our drinks. That is just about inexcusable. Our food came in a reasonable amount of time and was well received by everyone, except for the pasta dish. It tasted alright, but was lukewarm at best. It probably would have been much better if served at the correct temperature.
I'll give Woodberry Kitchen another chance at some point when we need gluten free, but it won't be soon.
We expect good food whenever we go out, so we were pleased with everything here. It's just exciting to dine at Woodberry Kitchen.
Our waiter was outstanding!
