  • Waitress Issue
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP

    Our waitress wasn't very attentive and when she was she was always trying to build up the check which is her job unfortunately. She didn't focus on our request and overall I wouldn't recommend any of our friends with this type of service. Our filet mignon was tough and full of gristle. Not what you would expect for $42. It is hard to ruin a filet but the choice of cut wasn't worth the price. They did eventually take it off of our bill after the manager had to be called over. The waitress wasn't of much help as she was trying to keep the tab higher.

    The drinks were very good and the daily happy hour is a plus. The chicken finger appetizers were delicious too, although I was looking for the kick of jalapeno in the dipping sauce. I loved the thin crust pizza but the toppings didn't wow me. Bread with melted butter at the table was delicious. I'm pretty sure I double dipped. I would return to Woodfire for the ambiance and drinks mostly.

    We made reservation and listed that it was our anniversary and my wifes birthday and we were seated right away in a small table in the middle of the restuarant. The place was very noisy, after a couple got up from a booth we asked to be moved. The waiter was very helpful. This place was surprising one of the best meals we've had in a Dallas. Seriously one of the best filets I've had in all of my travels around the country. The bread with warm garlic butter awesome! The smoked chicken Cobb, very good. The lobster bisque incredible. The 10oz filet med was wow. Lastly the choc truffel lava cake was worth the trip

    friends had advised this was a great special occasion restaurant (we were celebrating our 40th anniversary); they were right! we had a terrific, unrushed time. we don't drink, so I can't advise on that note, but the food (we had steak) was VERY good! MUCH better than average. Susi's mashed potatoes were divine! we'll go back (soon) enthusiastically.

    I used to come here when it was the fancy old fashioned steak house.. this was my first time since the remodel and during restaurant week. The food was PERFECT! I paid the extra $10 for wine pairing. All the wine was outstanding. Most places skimp on the portions during restaurant week, but Kirby's did not! Entrees were full size and impressive! I got the halibut and my friend got the prime rib.. both were outstanding. My only note would be that the chocolate cupcake at the end was dry. I look forward to returning to this place!

Being new to the area, we were not familiar with this part of Dallas or this particular restaurant, but now we look forward to returning many times in the future! The service was great and the food was outstanding!! Overall it was a delightful dining experience!!!

    Four of us went saturday (the other couple comes here often and really enjoy the place) and it was jammed to the hilt with restaurant week diners and one particularly loud adult birthday party with about 15 people sitting right next to us. The waiters were clearly overwhelmed and it looked to us that our waitress was serving the entire restaurant. Drinks took a long time to arrive and the food even longer. When the food did arrive, one of the dishes had to be sent back because the chicken was not cooked (it was clearly raw). The other dishes were ok but it was odd that a steak house didn't offer any steak for restaurant week (there were kabobs but not the same thing). two hours of loud talking left us wondering why folks return.

    Kirby's is where I go for a special night out and a good steak. When I checked the menu I decided the applewood bacon cheeseburger appealed so I got my meat on a bun. I've had the filet before and I know it's excellent. I wasn't bowled over by the couscous which is done better at Hillstone. However, I prefer Kirby's for the overall package - the restaurant is comfortable, fun, and classy. The staff are superb and the whole experience is special.

    Way over priced for the quality of food. I have enjoyed the food in the last, but I will not go back. If I want to pay that much, I will go to Capital Grill uptown. I don't want to pay a five star price for 3 star food and ambiance anymore. Shorts and T Shirts, blue jeans, and flip flops seem to be allowed without a problem. They were allowed all three times I was there. The food is good, and if that's your scene, have at it.its just not for me anymore.

    The setting, tasteful and modern decor. A large bar area half in and out doors. The dinning area has great seating for large or small parties. Some cozy booth seats or perhaps open ended booths close to the bar. The food is different and amazing. I personally liked the 7 oz cold filet with onion straws, yes onion straws with sweet potato mash. I would also recommend the jalapeño macaroni and cheese. Both are from the ever changing chefs nightly menu which does change. I took my girlfriend there we had a cheese and meat plate two entrées four glasses of wine and jalapeño mac and cheese ala carte total came to $150. It was a great date spot awesome food.

    Our bone in ribeye was tasty but very tough and grisly. It was cooked to our specifications but required intense carving and chewing. We were extremely disappointed because our first visit had been exceptional. We were celebrating our anniversary and chose your restaurant based on our previous experience and anticipated a superb meal. Our waiter seemed to be very confused about our order as well as his job.

    We celebrated our daughter's birthday at Woodfire Kirby's Friday evening. While the service was attentive and accommodating, the Ginger and Fug cocktail was cloyingly sweet. We also had the one of their Longhorn Red cocktails which was a good summer-time drink. The grilled pork chop entre was well prepared but the side of bourbon mashed potatoes tasted like canned, candied yams and overpowered the rest of the meal. The other two diners liked their chicken dishes but said they weren't worth going back for. While we appreciated the courteous and special attention to our daughter's birthday, it certainly doesn't warrant a return.

    Pricey, but nice. Two meals with 20% tip was $140. No appetizer no desert, two normal size alcoholic beverages. There is no real wow factor here, just expensive food and nice wait staff. Decor is kind of cool, but again, no Wow factor. No candles for romance, tables are closely located to one another like regular restaurants. Based purely on the steak, I could have went to Texas Roadhouse and paid significantly less, but my significant other really wanted a specialty drink they make so we splurged for the night.

    Some say the best things in life are free, but I think the best things in life are surprises. Going to a restaurant on the recommendation of someone can be, at best, worrisome. That was far from the case here. From the friendly valet, to the smiling hostess to our waiter, Garrett, this place aimed to please. Their aim was right on target. The food was delicious, the wine was wonderful and the pleasant atmosphere made us feel like we wanted to just hang out for a while. We travel a lot, we dine out a lot, but we only have a few "favorite" restaurants, we now have a new one.

    Food was good; atmosphere as enjoyable as ever. Service was a little slow. We were in the bar area and it appeared this section was understaffed. More attention was paid to those sitting outside than those inside. The main restaurant area was full & hopping; the bar area was definitely the step-child on our visit.

    My husband and I ate here for our 10th anniversary so we wanted a nice meal. I had the roasted chicken dinner which lacked flavor. My husband's steak was not very tender. Both of our mashed potatoes were cold. The best part of the meal for both was the broccoli cheese soup and my sautéed broccoli. We sat outside next to the fire, which was nice, and the wait staff were fantastic. But for the price paid for both meals ($95, plus tip when drinks were included), my husband and I expected the food's taste to be better. We both left thinking we could have had a better tasting meal at a Salt Grass or Texas Road House and paid less.

    After reading all of the great reviews, I booked this for Mother's day brunch. Well, the restaurant needs an update. There's no telling how old their carpet is. The brunch was a buffet style, which I didn't see mentioned in any of the reviews. The food was OK, not great, and we tried all of the brunch offerings (The biscuits and gravy definitely was not good).

    Being from Ft Worth it takes a lot to impress us in Dallas, but Woodfire certainly did just that. Our waiter, Ryan, was superb & the manager, Asher, couldn't have been nicer. We loved the fried avocado appetizer & the filet steaks were melt-in-your-mouth delicious. We chose to have our dessert out on the patio around the fire pit. When it started to rain we moved inside to the fireplace & enjoyed our key lime pie there. It was a very romantic & memorable evening. We wouldn't hesitate recommending this place to anyone.

    Had not tried Woodfire Kirby's before but decided to try it for Easter brunch. We had reservations and arrived about 10 minutes early and were seated right away. Service was very good from start to finish. Brunch was a combination buffet and limited menu. Everything we tried was excellent. Valet service was very good. Looking forward to returning to try the regular menu.
