Went here for a late dinner for 4. Food and service were fabulous! Love the ambiance. Ordered 2 desserts and they gave us their famous donuts for free...so nice of them! “Wood” go back again ;P

The main problem we had was that the restaurant was unbelievably loud. They sat a large and very loud party a few feet from us, with the result that the ambiance became that of a sports bar rather than refined dining. As a result we couldn't actually talk at our table. The staff tried to make up for it by bringing extra food, but as I have dietary restrictions, none of the additional food was anything I could eat (the restaurant was aware of my dietary issues). As a result this was one of the most disappointing dining experiences I have had in years.

The dinner at Woods was very pleasant. For a Toronto restaurant it is reasonably quiet. The menu is interesting and did not disappoint. The tuna tartar lacked tuna, but when we mentioned this to the server, he bent over backwards to make up for the problem. The service was exceptional. I would return to Woods.

I was in Toronto and some plans fell through so I was left on my own for dinner. I searched the neighborhood I was in on OpenTable and checked out some of the better ranked restaurants. Woods caught my eye with its regional fare.

The food was really excellent -- wonderful preparation and presentation. Moreover, the staff was very good and made the sometimes awkward dinner-for-one into a really special meal. The restaurant also had a relaxed vibe that I appreciated.

Highly recommended. Can't wait to go back.

Went to Woods to celebrate a birthday. Wait staff were most attentive, never an empty wine glass or plate left on the table. Food was phenomenal! I had the tuna tartare, followed by the Muscovy duck. Both dishes were outstanding. My husband had the bison short ribs. Fall off the bone with tons of flavour. Will definitely return!

First and foremost, Wood’s was delicious. My team went there for a business dinner. The food was everything it’s advertised to be: locally sourced, inventive, and delicious. Be sure to check out the carpaccio!

Unfortunately, there were some challenges in the service department. The table next to us arrived about ten minutes after we did—and got their drinks about twenty minutes before us. Given that the kitchen was firing on time, I’m going to chalk this one up to a new bartender. Great food, but be prepared to wait for it.

When we arrived for our 6:30 reservation, there were two other parties at their tables. Despite this, our appetizers took a long time ~20 minutes) to come out. We had also noticed that tables who were seated after us received their food before us. Possibly the kitchen’s fault, but still influenced this review.

Our server apologized for the delay with our food and said he’d check on us frequently, but didn’t. He was at the tables on either side of us and never even looked at us. Perhaps they were understaffed that night, but he made a point of telling us he’d be attentive so our expectations were unduly higher.

The food was pretty good, but didn’t cancel out the poor service.

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.
