    Drinks were excellent and quickly made, but food was just okay and took longer than expected. Salmon was flavorless, broccolini was undercooked, and neither went well with the risotto. Service was friendly, but hard to find.

    I don’t ever write reviews good or bad, but the restaurant came highly recommended by a friend I trust. The service was good and Brussels sprouts appetizer was great. Unfortunately the two 70$ NY steak specials arrived at our table slightly overdone and definitely cold. We were leaving for another engagement so could not send them back….very disappointing given what I was expecting.

    We went to Woodwork to celebrate two 40th birthday’s/a friends reunion weekend, so it was an important meal for us and it was so great. We had great service and everything we ordered (which was a lot) was amazing. Highly recommend!

    Fantastic early dinner before a show. The only thing that held me back from 5 stars across the board is that the tables are really close together so a bit squishy with our neighbours.

    Wood work is always the first place I go to eat when visiting Edmonton. It’s unique in many ways - short interesting food menu, long and even more interesting bar menu! A little dark, warm and noisy the atmosphere is a bit industrial but comfy at the same time with a semi open kitchen where cooks are working hard to make your delicious food items. Servings are generous and share-worthy. Some favorites: hickory smoked fries, Brussel sprouts, pork ribs.

    We thoroughly enjoyed Pamela's service! She was very knowledgeable and we appreciated her recommendations. She was also friendly and made for great conversation. We always enjoyed when she came back to our table! Edmonton has great restaurant selections but it's the service staff that makes all the difference. We always enjoy our visits to woodwork and staff is always on point!

    I always look forward to dinner and drinks here on date nights. We have booked here a few times for events or birthdays. The cocktails are always outstanding, the service has always been really good and the atmosphere is really nice, never too loud, so it’s easy to have good conversation. Prices have definitely increased and for the price of the mains here, the flavours were really good and the sides paired well, however the food was barely luke warm. Overall the experience was good. I would recommend for cocktails and appetizers, however, the mains were expensive and a bit underwhelming. Overall a good experience.

    We went for the bourbon. The selection was fantastic, and the on the spot tasting flight was excellent. The staff were very good, helpful and knowledgeable. The only downside was they were out of 3 of the mains that were our choices. Excellent points go to staff when some tartare was actually available and offered. Overall, a very pleasant experience. Highly recommended.

    We were the first ones in the restaurant when it opened at 5:00 pm. They sat us next to the front door which had a cold draft. We asked to change tables in an empty restaurant and they were unable to accommodate us. They gave us a poor excuse that it would affect the flow of the restaurant. We had to wait over an hour and forty minutes for our main course and the food was cafeteria style and all three steaks were cold. We were very unhappy and won’t dine at this restaurant again. This trendy restaurant is trending downward.

    Quite literally a hidden gem, the exterior front doesn’t look like much, but inside has more life to it. Best feature is the cocktails here, probably one of the best selections in Edmonton. I really love their sticky toffee pudding dessert. Haven’t tried their regular main food menu but will try next time. Great place for dates or small friendly gatherings.

    Upon check in, we were on time for our reservation, the person checking us in took a very long time (several minutes) clicking on her screen while not making us feel welcome. Staff talked too openly about table turns and revenue per hour. Did the waitress bait and switch. Our table neighbors were shouting when they spoke to each other and another had a bright light on for a long time, so that was annoying. Overall the food was fantastic and that’s what we went for!

    Had high expectations on Woodwork. They do have a small main course menu so when they tell you they don’t have the Halibut or the Market Cut available it makes it a bit disappointing. Drinks were ok. Average experience with a big bill.

    Perfect place for a date night with ambient lighting. Friendly staff, the bar tenders made a cocktail which wasn't on the menu and was absolutely delicious. Simple menu items to pick from and not having to sort through an enormous selection made it quick and easy to decide what to order.
