    This was our first time at Peak. Parking was easy. Warm welcome, and shown straight to our table. Attentive wait staff. The appetizers are big enough to share, so take that into consideration. We both had fish, one blackened, the other plain. Both were slightly overcooked, which is easy to do with a thin filet - but still perfectly edible. Did not have desserts. Definitely a place to revisit.

    Had the spinich dip. Wood fired with foccacia was quite unique and tasty. The Luther salad was good with chicken, but the chicken was a bit dry. The service was very attentive. It is a nice spot to eat with people in a relaxed and quiet environment.

    We have always had good food at Peak Woodfire Grill, but someone had an especially heavy hand with black pepper on this evening. The chicken breast and everyone's vegetables were peppered very heavily. The tillapia was well prepared. The veal picata was fine but missing the lemon brightness in the bland sauce. We won't throw out the baby with the bathwater, but more attention to seasoning would be a bonus.

    Our group of 6 dine out together once a month. This was an outstanding choice! We enjoyed an excellent dinner in this beautifully renovated space. Our waitress was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu and she gave us good service. We will definitely return! The roasted beet salad was outstanding as was the filet, the crab cakes and the veal scallopine.

    We have been dining at this restaurant for the past 10 years. Last year the restaurant changed ownership and was re-named Peak Wood Grill. It is a delightful place to eat with a great menu made up of northern Italian dishes as well as a few great american dishes like the meatloaf. The owner will come by your table and check on you. Overall, a neat place to eat with great food and wine.

    I have eaten at Peak Wood Fire Grill several times in the last few months and the first three or four times were quite good. The warm lobster roll is excellent. Sandwiches and specials have also been good. Very reasonable beer prices. I had been very happy with this restaurant as a casual but reliable lunch option. This past visit sadly was a big disappointment. We had to ask four times for a glass of ice tea and again for refills. Service was very poor for the entire meal. Salads on this visit were also mediocre. Previously, I had been seated in a larger table which afforded some privacy of conversation. At this seating we were on top of neighbors on both sides which was very uncomfortable.

    Great ambiance, friendly and capable service, excellent food. This place hits the right notes while being both a casual drop in spot and a special occasion dinner. Menu is diverse without being overly ambitious. Ask the host about the wines. Small list but carefully selected.

    Tried this restaurant based on my sister's recommendation. She knows the chef. Went for lunch. There was a brisket special prepared by the chef the night before. Was extremely fatty and very little meat that was edible. Vegetables on plate were piled with too much minced garlic and not edible. Price not commensurate with quality and taste. Chef came out to visit. Service was very good; however, will not return.

    My husband ordered a burger with potato salad. The burger was tasteless, and the gluten free bun very stale. However, he raved about the potato salad, so at least he had something enjoyable to eat. Now MY dish, the fish tacos, were outstanding and I found myself craving a bit more. One more taco? That would've been perfect! Enjoyed the wine selections. It's unusual to have a 50/50 meal. Maybe try again??

    This is a lovely, relaxing dining spot. We found it by accident and were very pleasantly surprised. The wasabi vinaigrette on my salad was great. I can't wait to return to try the pizzas and flatbreads. The chef/owner came out to meet us and he was a charmer. I hope the place does very well for him. We're excited to find a good, new place so close to home.

    I loved Peak Wood Fired Grille. It is a very nice restaurant in a great location, and even though it was crowded on the night we went, the restaurant was not too loud. Our server was lovely, and had great recommendations for us. The chocolate cake was the best I have ever had. I look forward to returning soon!

    Second time eating here. First time came in with family in evening. The staff was incredibly welcoming, right down to the owner that was hosting that night. I wasn't sure if it would work out since we dropped in with our four kids. They sat us at a large table and delighted us. Gave it a try another day for a business lunch. The environment, food and service was a great complement to our conversation. Looking forward to my next visit.

    We were looking for a centrally located restaurant that none of us had tried before, but that was quiet enough that we could catch up with each others lives. This is a gem as the food and atmosphere are wonderful. The Exec Chef was out checking on things very often as well. We will surely be back.

    First time to visit Peak and really enjoyed it. Staff and servers very friendly and attentive but not so much that they interrupted your meal or chatting with friends. Food was very good and enjoyed by all. Restaurant was quiet enough where you could talk and not have to shout to have a conversation.Will certainly go back.

    We were intending to go to a more well-known place but they were crowded and, not wanting to wait, we went onto the phone and did an Open Table reservation for some nearby place we had never heard of: Peak Wood Fired Grille. The place was small and quiet, allowing for the conversations we were craving. The food was excellent. I had the trout and my friend had the meatloaf. Chef Hoffner came out and spoke to all the diners but was not obtrusive. We were able to leisurely enjoy both the food and the company. If I lived nearby, I would come here a lot!

    Ambience was good, service also good. Executive chef stopped by the table, nice touch. Should have let him know the salmon portions were awfully small...seemed like they were running low and decided to cut a normal portion in half, then provided double helping of vegetables to fill the plate...another diner had salmon at my table and their portion was also small... Very well prepared, just a small portion...

    So glad we took the chance on this restaurant. We went here after our daughters 6th birthday party. I had the trout with crab sauce, the wife had the tuna. Most importantly the key lime pie will take you to florida on the first bite. There owner greets you at the door and the food is great. Will be back often.

    The menu sounded good, but the over salted, saucy product was sub par. For the price we were regretful we could have gone to Al Biernats for exceptional food and atmosphere! We were not pleased and will not return. We are foodies and really enjoy new local places to support. Unfortunately, this one wont stay on the list.

    Don't be fooled: The simple dish descriptions on the menu don't do the food at Peak Wood Fired Grille justice! The BBQ chicken skewers are served with a bed of field greens lightly dressed with wasabi vinegairette and the crab cakes are made with huge chunks of fresh meat. The owner is attentive and cares about the quality and image of the product his kitchen and staff deliver. Be sure to check the wine list! The owner rotates his wine cellar regularly and often has great wines at half-price in order to move the stock (we had $16 bottle of Malbec). I believe Monday is also a 1/2 price day. The restaurant is small, so you may be seated close to other patrons.

    To say the very least, I enjoyed my first outing at Peak Wood Fired Grille very much. The owner, Mike Johnson, was such a nice gentleman to us, and it was fun getting to know the guy running the show. The food was SPECTACULAR. I will say the portions were a little small, but caliber of the food was A+. I usually regret ordering Medium Rare in other restaurants, but they did it so well and I have to give the chef major props for that. There are two little oddities about the restaurant that give it character. 1) The space is very small, and so you might find yourself conversing with another customer a couple feet from you. 2) The guests seem pretty varied, and it breaks up the monotony of most upper class establishments
