St Louis Park Woodfire Grill reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Sadly underrated, thankfully

    In looking for something new, we stumbled across this almost forgotten gem on the 394 strip. Forgotten, I mean, by me. I've never been to this place before - which has changed names several times over the last decade - but needed a steak for my 90 year old grandfather, with whom we wanted to share a special family dinner with. Steak is his thing. Making reservations with Open Table was surprisingly accommodating. The reason for which wasn't apparent until we got there. Granted, it was a Thursday. And granted, it was a senior citizen friendly 5:45pm - but the place was deserted. Over the 90 minutes we were there, another 5 or 6 tables filled up - but that was it. And it. was. awesome. Great food and great service. Will return.

    Our group of four went to Woodfire Grill before heading downtown to a game. There was a great selection of food, a lot of which we had never tried before. The waitress was personable, the food was really good, and we definitely would go back.

    We were having a family get-together and reserved a table for 6 in a semi private room. It was peaceful and great for conversation, and aside from being a little cool it was a great setup. The only issue was that it was my mother's birthday and we had brought a cake to celebrate, but were informed that there was a plating fee of $1.25 each. This was unfortunate for us and them as we would have ordered another round of drinks and enjoyed ourselves instead of opting to drive 4 blocks home to celebrate. Guess they though the $7.50 they could have earned on the fee was more important than a round of drinks for 6 adults. Bad call on their part. But I will say that the food was pretty good and they offered 1 free gelato for the birthday girl.

    Sat in the dining room with a great view of the dust-covered giant elk mount. The lighting and feel of the dining room left a lot to be desired and the food was only okay. The bar area looked updated and I would think about going for apps/drinks, however, I will be staying away from the dining room and entrees.

    We dined here for the first time this week, out of convenience since we were in the area. The AC was not working well so it was about 20 degrees warmer than it needed to be on a summer evening. Servers were dripping with sweat and the place smelled of burned crème brulee. One entrée was ok, but the beef tenderloin with bordelaise was horrible. A manager visited my table and I explained to her that it tasted very much like A1 and tomato sauce. She and my server informed me that bordelaise is made with lobster stock and roux and I told them that many people, including myself, know that this is incorrect. She offered to bring additional sauces. I left a comment for the restaurant and they have chosen not to respond. We overtipped for service.

    I ordered off the restaurant week menu the naan bread and BLTE sandwich and that was delish. It was so good that i plan on going back to this restaurant. The sauce for the naan was well made and the bacon on top of the egg for the sandwich was yum, yum!

    This was the first time my husband and I went to this restaurant. I don't think we'll go back. My scallops were OK, but the rice was cold. His steak was Ok but the mashed potatoes were the worst I ever tried. They were brown and cold. We did like our waitress though. She was efficient without being obnoxious. For the price we paid, the value was not there.

    I cannot remember any dining experience where the food was this bad. I mean terrible. Inedible. The saving grace was the bottle of wine we had. If you like prime rib that is too tough to cut ladled with thick dark gravy smothering it, this could be the place for you. Otherwise, I do not recommend it.

    We wanted to treat our out-of-town guests to a special dinner, and we did so by choosing the Woodfire Grill. It couldn't have been more perfect, the six of us started our meal with delicious and unique appetizers (roasted cauliflower and grilled naan) along with wonderful wine choices. (the wine list at Woodfire is extensive). The hostess couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating. The menu has plenty of variety for vegetarians and meat-eaters. I enjoyed the Chapa Carmelized Carrot Salad; others in my group raved about their steaks. We finished the meal by sharing desserts and once again we were very impressed. The gelato was amazing! The atmosphere is very comfortable and background music added a special ambiance. Bravo!

    The menu has many intriguing options and I would like to go back and give them a second chance. That being said, I wasn't blown away by what we received. While they're working with quality ingredients, it seems like there's a little something missing... I love the bitterness of Campari, but the Jasmine cocktail was overly sweet. The lamb burger was slightly charred, and for me, the combo of goat cheese and lamb (which can be gamey) was not a winning combo. The truffle mac had a nice coating and great crunch with breadcrumbs, but it was a bit bland. We had a really quiet night (pouring rain), so the hostess and server were very attentive to us and we received food very quickly. It's a good find though and I hope to return for a second visit

    I was surprised at how good the food was considering no one has ever mentioned this place---and I've lived in the TC since Sept 1998! Ribs were very tender. Fries yummy. Chocolate gelato to die for!! Our waitress was friendly and solicitous. Only comment is that I was surprised that my ribs were $25 for a lunch menu (for one person). A bit pricier than the competition. Otherwise, food and service were great. Will definitely bring my husband next time.

    We ate here Mother's Day evening. The kitchen must have been recovering from the earlier brunch, as it took very long (30+ minutes) to get our entrees. We have not had this problem in the past, so we will be back. The food is very good overall. For anice sandwich, try the shaved prime rib with peppers and onions -- topped with cheese curds! All the steaks are good, especially the chimichurri flank steak.

    This is a restaurant that has changed hands a few times in recent years. It's in a relatively convenient location off of 394, but because of that, it is surrounded by pavement. Not the most ideal scenery. The inside is decoratated like a log cabin. Big exposed log beamwork overhead and stuffed wildlife. The main hall fireplace has a large moose head mounted on it. They tried to update the decor a bit, but it still seemed dated to me. We did not go for the decor though, we went for the food. The food here is fantastic. I first went for lunch and had a really great Cuban sandwich. This past time I took my family for dinner. Excellent dinners and desserts. Very flavorful, unique, and well presented. I would recommend it to everyone.

    We sat outside on the patio so not sure how the ambiance was inside of the restaurant but was great outside. I got the rotisserie chicken which was very dry but the vegetables and fingerling potatoes were very good; and my fiance said that his meal was great - he got the steak roll platter. Overall, I'd recommend this place to a friend :)

    Amazingly, the aroma of firewood hit my nose in the parking lot before I even opened my car door! (How did they do that?!) We were there for lunch on a Tuesday - the restaurant was not too busy, and we had fantastic service and great food! The restaurant has a cabin feel to it, with a few mounted animals up above. I had a BLTE sandwich, and I would recommend it! I am calling this a Neighborhood Gem, as I haven't heard too many people talking about it, but I think they should! :)

    We attended Easter brunch this past Sunday. We were surprised that coffee was not included in the brunch price. We made reservations early before the church crowd arrived and were seated at table with a view of the kitchen door. When asked if we could relocate to a different table we could not. Overall, experience was fair/good. Bloody Marys were excellent, as well as the omelets.

    The real wood burning fireplace is a great treat in this cozy spot. The service is always wonderful and friendly. I eat here often and have never had anything that was not superb. The wood grilled meats are awesome and the pizza with potatoes and carmelized onions is to die for. At lunch the BLTE (egg) and Mexican Salsa verde soup are a must have. I crave them both and could eat these daily. AND you can talk and be heard without raising your voice. This place is just a gem!

    We dined at the Woodfire Grill on 1/11/13, after searching for a restaurant that might offer good food and a quiet atmosphere for our group of 7. We were pleased on both counts. The setting was perfect for table discussion and the food was very good overall, which started with a very diverse menu. The 12 and 16 year olds in our group had no trouble finding something to their likes on the menu. Service was excellent. The only food disappointment was with the seared scallops, due to the overly salty ginger-madeira sauce poured over the top. If you order this dish, ask for the sauce on the side. Finally , the homemade vanilla gelato and the table smores were a big hit with everyone.
