Woodland - A True Gem on Flatbush
Pleasantly surprised by Woodland! Lots of little delicious touches like the smoky tomato ketchup and the homemade olives and liver pate. The only thing that I found less than impressive was the burger, it just wasn't anything to write about. I highly suggest Woodland for a standalone date or a meal before or after an event at Barclays Center.

Great for pre-event at Barclay's
Pleasantly surprised by this Flatbush Ave near Barclay Center. Great place to have a pre-event meal. Decent menu and well executed too.

Service couldn't have been better. Charming waiter, Alex, and also charming hostess. Because my friend could not eat her rabbit dish as it was too salty, we both received free deserts.
The snacks prior to the meal to accompany our reduced priced wines was unbelievably imaginative and delicious.

Before Barclays - you deserve it.
I picked this for a group of 6 dare I say, middle aged, guys wanting to celebrate a birthday dinner and see a Nets game. Everyone was very pleased with my choice. Woodlands has a comfortable, nice contemporary pub sort of a feel, is very clean, and sits on a corner with beautiful front and side walls of windows.
Our waitress was very helpful and friendly, and our food was terrific, ranging from salads, onion soup, lamb chops, burgers and a steakhouse quality ribeye . We were served ample bread, and had great sides of roasted veggies, all downed with ample pints of good draft beer.
Pricing wise this is not a burger joint but is very reasonable given the quality of the meal and atmosphere.

I'll certainly go back in
I'll certainly go back in a few weeks when I see Sir Paul at the stadium.

Worked out the kinks
We went before the Paul McCartney concert and after reading the reviews I must admit I was nervous about getting served onetime. After the cocktails were promptly served, it was obvious that they worked out the kinks. The service was great and the food was delicious. I will definitely return next time I have tickets to barclays.

Perfect place before Barclays event
We stopped in before Paul McCartney (made a reservation online) and the food was delish and the staff delightful. 2 blocks walk to the show. Perfect!

While visiting a close friend in NY, we decided to try out Woodland and we were so impressed. The food was so delicious, and the service was lovely. Our waiter, Adam, was so kind and helpful, and made sure we were well taken care of. He made great food and wine suggestions, and we truly enjoyed every course. Thank you for making our experience so enjoyable. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a neighborhood gem and who is looking for a delicious and indulgent meal.

Our brunch was extremely pleasant, sitting in the shade on the patio. My friends brought their infant and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food and drink were just fine and a no more pleasant reunion with dear old friends could have been imagined. Thank you.

Went on a nice summer afternoon
Went on a nice summer afternoon when they had all the large shutters open to reveal a wide-angle view of St. Marks square. It was gorgeous. The restaurant is a block away from the Barclays center -- great for a meal before a show. I had the braised rabbit ragu which tasted great but was a tad on the bland side. I was expecting something creamier but it was actually more brothy. Also had an order of olives which was full of many large, meaty queen olives. The staff, food, and atmosphere are all top-notch. As long as you can afford it (most entrees are in the $20-$30 range) you can't really go wrong with a fantastic place like this.

Wonderful Choice Before Concert
Great atmosphere, service was great and the food was amazing. Definitely a go to before anything at the Barclay Center!

Maybe I'm picky but a pet peeve is having all the food dumped on the table at once. We ordered salads, soup and an entree. The waiter specificially asked if we wanted them as 3 courses and we said yes. We barely had the black pepper put on the salad when the soup came out. Annoyed, we asked that it go back until we finished the salad. They apologized and happily obliged. However, after taking one spoonful of soup each, the main course came out so we had to devour the soup so the main wouldn't get cold. Aside from that, a cute little Brooklyn spot right by Barclays with really good food.

Close to Barclay Center
We were a party of 6 and had a terrific waitress (Ashley) to help expedite our drinks and food order so that we could be in and out of the restaurant in an hour. The food was excellent - confirmed by all 6 of us -- and everything was perfect. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a good meal and a good bar menu before going to an event at the Barclay Center.

Salmon is delightful
This is a solid pre-Barclays dining spot... I highly recommend it!
