Woods Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
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.
All around a wonderful experience. Food was excellent and Michael our waiter was outstanding. Friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent meal; wait staff were very attentive; and we were not rushed.
Beautiful decor. Lovely service and meal. Atmosphere is perfect for conversation, not too loud.
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.
Fantastic dinner, service, and ambiance.
Knowledgeable waiter who made an effort to provide us with the little extras to accompany our starters and mains. Fantastic service and will repeat.
Great lunch menu, very good service and a terrific bright room with modern, wood finishes.
food, was amazing, but not enough, 2 of us had tuna tartare, duck breast, cordon bleu, my girlfriend was full from lunch, didnt eat much, we were both hungry when we left, staff, ambience was amazing, had to eat somehwere else after
Très belle expérience, les plats et le service sont de hautes qualités.
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.
The downstairs party room was so cold! :( no heating
Our group enjoyed the ambiance, excellent service from the time we entered the restaurant to taking our order. The group were very happy with the downtown location. We all enjoyed the food and recomend it as a great place for any function. We will be back.
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.
The food and service are always outstanding at Woods. However, the restaurant this time was extremely noisy, making table conversation almost impossible through the entire meal.
Took my date here for dinner. We had an amazing meal. I had the smoked elk carpaccio and steak and he had the duck. All of our dishes were stellar! The service was impeccable. Love this place and will be back!
Amazing food, drinks and service. They went the extra mile! Def recommend!
Fun! Good food and excellent service.
This is my fourth visit to Woods. The cuisine is excellent the service is first rate. The menu is not long but the preparations are creative and delicious.
The most magical dinner experience filled with local, quality ingredients and amazing service. There were two waiters serving my bread! Lovely!
Our first time and won't be our last. Service was great and we had a group of 7.
Fantastic service, food was also amazing. You have to go here.
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.
Our server went out of his way to make our experience enjoyable. Food was delicious as usual!
Nice menu and wine selection. Food was well cooked, but very under underseasoned. All in all it was a good meal, but very underwelming.
A solid meal, just nothing steller.
Never disappointed with Woods!
Beautiful interior. Attentive servers. Good variety of appetizers and entrees.
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.
Amazing dinner and service. A must try!
Food was disappointing given the extravagant prices. Not impressed.
Meat dishes are very good. Excellent wine selection.
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.
The food was mediocre, service was excellent, wine was excellent, portions were very small.
Will not return.
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!
The server was pleasant, respectful and attentive. The food was great, I ordered the halibut, it's cooked to perfection. The mushroom sauce was a bit too creamy/thick to my taste. My daughter had tuna, it was fresh and high quality.
My wife and I have already made reservations for dinner with our family next time. This was our first visit and we can't say enough about the dinner ... service ... ambiance!
They provided free wine top-ups because it was my birthday! And an extra tasting dish for my table of 5! Excellent service!
