We had a wonderful evening at Woodwork. Our server mentioned that she was new after I had asked about a few spirits to see if they might have them on her back wall. Though she didn't know off the top of her head (which would not be expected), she was prompt to bring a complete list for us to view. The bartender then proceeded to make us some custom cocktails throughout the night, all of which were fantastic! As for the food, all our appetizers were delicious. We especially enjoyed the steak tartare. But the cherry on top was the additional shooter the bartender made for the table. Such great customer service, and will continue to recommend to others, especially in these uncertain times where supporting local businesses such as Woodworks is essential to keeping our community and fantastic places such as this striving!

Extremely slow service, and very disappointed. There was so much potential with the location and menu. Our food took about an hour to come and drinks were overall slow too. Will not be returning. Such a shame with how excited I was to go!

We had a great experience. This was our first time dining out since the beginning of Covid. The staff were all masked and very friendly. Other guests wore masks until seated, tables were well distanced the atmosphere felt busy but not crowded.

Poor service.
Wait a while for my foods.
Small size serving for the price.
But taste good.

Asked for basic drinks (Caesar), told me they can't make it. Asked for Sangria told me they cant make it as well.
I asked why as it's basic drinks and most of places can easily make it on demand. The answer was simple : because the owner doesn't like those drinks so we don't make it.

Ambiance was boring.
Was my first and last time.

Andrea made us a wonderful recommendation for a Pisco sour with Peruvian pisco when I asked if she could make one for me (off-menu.) It was the most delicious sour I’ve ever had. The menu was basically made up of old favourites from previous menu iterations that didn’t disappoint. I’m a longtime customer and I’ve only had great experiences there; I can’t wait to go back!

We went out for a special dinner after months of not going out anywhere. The place is cozy with a masculine vibe. Alcohol going to the ceiling. I inquired about getting a classic cocktail off menu and they delivered. The steak tartare was fantastic to share with my date. I ended up with the salmon for my main. It was good and the portion was large. The risotto was creamy but the next day when I had the leftover a bit of salt and pepper made it better the second time round.

My friend and I were really excited to visit Woodwork as we live about 5 hours from the city and every time we had tried to make a reservation they were booked. I think we had really high hopes.
Service was decent but not wonderful, the menu was small however we believe that was due to a limited menu after the return from COVID. We ordered a small cheese "platter" to start, it had delicious selections on it but was disappointing. No crackers, or bread came with this, you had to order that for an extra charge. Dinner was really nice, we both had the salmon with risotto, and we found the portions to be a bit off. We had likely double or triple a portion of risotto and maybe a 4oz piece of Salmon. I would try it again if the expand their menu, but for now i can say it didn't live up to the "Hype."

This was our first meal out since we started social distancing months ago and it was fantastic. The staff were lovely, professional and accommodating.
We had no reservations at any point about having decided to go out and I want to thank Woodwork for giving us a comfortable environment to be able to celebrate our anniversary at.
Stay safe everyone!!

Hi ChrisB, Can you elaborate a bit on what you mean by "limited"? Our cocktail menu currently has ~25 cocktails, with 100s more available off menu, which our bartenders are all too happy to make for you. We also have about 5-6 entrees at present, plus an extensive small plate selection. Thanks for you time, MGMT

I'm not even sure where to begin with this. Woodwork is simply spectacular. We started with well-portioned appetizers that could easily serve as a collection of family-style mains. The steak is an ideal representation of Alberta's finest. The wine list offers a nice range of price and variety, and the cocktails are nothing short of artistry. All of this is delivered by a friendly, knowledgable, and hospitable staff of servers and bartenders. I'd call Woodwork a must for any visit to Edmonton.

We've been to Woodwork a few times. The atmosphere is great the drinks are perfect. However, over the last few times we've seen a decline in the mains. The chicken was good however the gravy that comes with it was so salty which push me away from eating the gnocchi that comes with it. The fries were always one of our favorites which was why my husband picked the steak frites but it seems like they've been replaced over time with just more and more spices which take away from them. The lamb belly and bread with brown butter were still good.

Quite expensive expectially drinks. My food was good but nothing to write home about, partners enjoyed his food. He ordered coffee and for 6:00 they brought him 1 cup and then took cup away to refill and we finally had to ask for it back.
They never came back to offer me another drink or refill. I asked for coffee when they brought back other one. Not offered refill.
So level of service poor for cost to dine there.
