Great service. The food is great quality and reasonably priced. Cocktails are very reasonable ($10 for 2oz). Also was given a free appetizer. Staff very attentive!

Excellent, excellent, excellent. Interesting menu, food was delicious and beautifully presented. Unique twist on cocktails which were great and a decent wine list. Service was attentive and thoughtful. Great ambiance and vibe. There were 5 of us at dinner on a Saturday night and we will definitely return. I would highly recommend for any occasion.

I really don't review but the restaurant was fantastic. The servers are great with their flare and energy. The alcohol has a good selection, mostly wines and a few cocktails. The food portion was fairly decent. It's just enough to fill you but it takes a while to cook so you're better off getting appetizers to pick on. The atmosphere was cozy, the music wasn't loud enough to make conversation awkward with raised voices and the lighting was pleasant. If youre concerned about the price its a bit pricey but totally worth it. Over all it was a great experience and Id definitely come back again another time.

Reserved a table for 8 the day-of on a Saturday. We were sat at the front of the restaurant - which was beautiful but somewhat isolated from the main eating area. Service was outstanding. Food was also beautiful but I found my own appetiser (steak tartar) to be overly salted. I had the halibut for dinner which was fantastic, but much richer than expected. Overall nice dinning experience for a special occasion - everyone had a great time.

In the past we were never disappointed with the food here, but something is seriously amiss now. The amuse was undercooked and almost inedible, as was my wife's duck portion, she had to leave some of it behind, a first that I've seen. The menu is the same but the manner in which foods are cooked is seriously off, underseasoned... too bad, it was a great place for so long. On the other hand, service is still good. As a previous reviewer mentioned, the noise level is outrageous and it's impossible to hear each other. To top it all off, the restaurant didn't award the 100 points credit for a reservation and I had to complain to opentable... what happened?

When we arrived, our table wasn’t ready, due to a Christmas party who brought more guest than expected. But instead of treating us like most restaurants and leaving us while we wait, they went way out of their way to make sure we were happy while we waited, and were we ever glad we did! The food was impeccable! I had the duck and my wife had the halibut, and both dishes were amazing. These guys made our rare night out such a great time. So glad we came and waited! Definitely will be back.

I was so excited to try this restaurant, and it seemed really promising. The service is excellent, the interior is well-designed, and we had great drinks throughout (cocktails/wine/dessert wine.) But the food was not up to par. Both entrees were bland and quite underseasoned, and the foie gras was prepared in a way that made it lose all its texture and fattiness. It was just sweet. The brownie on the menu was the only part of the meal that lived up to the rest of the experience.

Food was passable but portions were very small for the dollar value. We were disappointed at the end of the night when our server grudgingly supplied us with separate bills after delivering a group bill to the table without checking first.
Our group had the distinct feeling that the staff was in a hurry to see us leave at the end of the night...here's your coat...don't let the door hit you on the way out.

We were looked after like royalty. We could not have had a better anniversary celebration. The food was delicious, the service superb and the ambiance is great, it’s bustling and full (even on a Tuesday). We were offered complimentary drinks including a glass of Canadian champagne and ice wine. A wonderful night.

Meals are always wonderfully prepared at woods and the service is exceptional. Make sure you read all the cocktail ingredients because they do twists on drink favourites. If you enjoy vodka and know the Russian bar Pravda, these are the same owners. If you ask nicely, they can take you into Pravda after your meal through the back so you don't have to walk all the way around the block.

Took out of town business colleagues to Woods on a week night. All were impressed with the food. However it was the service that was truly outstanding. People were still talking about it the next day. Very attentive and accommodating and always friendly. They even accommodated with separate bills. We were a table of 8. Well done!
