    I frequent the Wooden Table and simply love it. I live in the neighborhood and stop by occasionally for a drink or, as was the case this particular night, make reservations for a special night out. My friend had never been to the Wooden Table and was extremely pleased. I wish other patrons recognized that it's not a place to bring rowdy children, though. It's small and intimate, amplifying noisy children and their antics.

    Terribly disappointed in this experience. We arrived on time for our Friday evening 6:30 reservation for 4. We were seated and then 35 minutes passed by before we finally got up to ask for the wait staff to come to our table for the first time. She then told us that no one been assigned to serve us but she would add us to her load. We then spent the rest of the evening having to get up from our table and go ask for everything we needed. Had to asked for someone to take our drink order and again our food order. There was nothing impressive about the actual entrees either. Watery sauses, over salted, and inconsistent portion sizes. The dining room was not over booked and there appeared to be enough staff but we were clearly off their radar for the entire 2 hrs we were seated. This was a reservation for a birthday and none of the instructions related to the celebration seem to have been communicated to the staff either. We all found this highly recommended spot to have Poor attention to detail, mediocre food and nothing to offer that would make us want to return.

    I had been wanting to check out this restaurant for a while, had heard about it from friends. We got a group of 8 together for my birthday on a Saturday night. Unassuming from the outside, strip mall location. When we entered we were transported into a high end eatery. Greeted at the door by friendly hosts. Our table was ready, and we had wait staff on hand immediately. Everything was great, from the wine service to the food. Sweetbreads and mussels as a starter, then we were served family style and shared 3 pasta dishes. Sadly no room for dessert. Thanks so much to our server Holly, our somm Robert, and our adorable busboy Brady. It was a great experience. I can't wait to come back and look forward to impressing my friends with my new favorite place.

    From the moment you are warmly welcomed at the door it is an enjoyable experience. The food is delicious and the service is just right. The mussels appetizer is the best in town and large enough to share. On this last visit I enjoyed the Caesar salad and their lamb confit carbonara. In the past I have tried a variety of pastas and entrées, and all have been delicious. There is a wide selection of choices and you just can't go wrong. The complimentary glass of limoncello at the end of the evening is a nice touch. Another plus is the easy location with plenty of parking.

    All the various dishes we had were outstanding. Roberts help with the wine list and the cocktails couldn't be beat. Service could have been a bit more attentive considering it was a $500+ dinner for a party of 6. At the end of the evening we truly thought we had been forgotten about as we were one of only two tables left. Too much time lagged between dinner and being asked again about dessert & coffee. Overall very good though.

    My fiance and I went to The Wooden Table for a special occasion dinner later in the evening - 9pm reservations. Upon arriving our water glasses were not filled for probably close to 15 minutes, nor were we acknowledged. Once a waiter came to our table we were asked what we would like for our entrees - NOT appetizers. We ended up ordering an app and two glasses of wine. The appetizer came out BEFORE the wine got to our table and when the wine finally did come they had brought a Cabernet instead of a Chardonnay... I don't even know HOW you make that mistake they are RED and WHITE wines! All of the food was absolutely outstanding - the service was despicable.

    Great food mid-high end pricing, wonderful variety but the interior lacks the sophistication that the menu and wine list have. Service was perfection as was the Red Snapper I had. The space is loud, and reads a little cold - need to work on softening the interior and "warm it up"

    We moved from Cherry Creek area to Highlands Ranch area and were feeling very desolate about the lack of good restaurant options. We have now eaten at The Wooden Table a handful of times. The service is excellent, the food is extremely well prepared, interesting, with the occasional menu changes to keep one coming back. It is now our go-to place.

    We've been to the Wooden Table numerous times over the last year and couldn't be more pleased with this restaurant. The food is creative, delicious and uses high quality ingredients. The service is absolutely top notch and the manager, who was the bartender the last time we were there (a year ago!), remembered us and stopped by to see how dinner was. It's clear that everyone here is proud of what they do and it shows. We can't wait to go back!

    Food and wine were excellent and service was great. I had noted in my OpenTable reservation that we would be celebrating our anniversary. As such, two glasses of (very nice) prosecco were brought to our table as a "congratulations". Given how busy the place is, it's obvious they didn't need to do this, but it was much appreciated. Do to its small size and deserved reputation, a table is hard to come by, but if this is the price to pay to keep the quality high, it's well worth it.

    This place is actually very lovely with excellent food, although heavy on the meat. I had the one vegetarian pasta dish available and it was phenomenal! I also tried a salad, which was very good and was matched perfectly by my wine. I'd love it if they offered a few more vegetarian or seafood only (without other meats) dishes. The service was pretty good, but a bit overly practiced and somewhat rushed. Still, the staff was very friendly. The location is a bit odd, it's in a strip mall and the wall of windows looks out on the parking lot, but they have done a pretty nice job transforming the interior to make it more homey. A nice place for older people looking for a quiet night out with solid Italian food.

    The salads were large, very fresh, contained the perfect amount of dressing, and served with homemade bread. I had the snapper and my partner had the beef and both choices were excellent. The wine choice offered by the server was delightful. Our server, whose name escapes me, was cheerful, informative, fun, and funny. It was a great meal.

    We were celebrating my best friend's birthday and we were excited to finally try out The Wooden Table. Boy, were we deflated when we met our server. She was less than enthusiastic....even grumpy. (She rolled her eyes when we asked her to snap one picture of us.) 3-4 more encounters with her prompted me to speak to the maitre d'. He was swift and decisive in assuring us a memorable experience. He removed her from serving us and replaced her with the most delightful and attentive waiter we've had in a very long time. We had such a nice evening from then on. The food was delicious and our evening was saved. We've got reservations again this coming weekend, and we are very much looking forward to another pleasant dining experience.

    We went with a couple of friends for a night out. We had the prawns and gnocchi as the appetizer...loved the gnocchi, it came in a divine cream sauce. Three of us ordered the beef and the fourth ordered the duck as the main dish. I loved my selection - the beef, it was cooked just right and melted in my mouth. For desert we ordered the molten chocolate cake, it was good, but I think when I go back I will try their apple desert or the tres leches cake. Nice little place, it doesn't feel stuffy or pretentious. Although you shouldn't go in your flip flops and shorts, and yet it isn't the type of place that you have to wear your Sunday's best. We chose to wear jeans, while others that came were a bit more dressed up. Great overall place!

    it is always a pleasure to take friends to the Wooden Table. The menu choices are interesting and different enough for the experience to be unique, and the food is always delicious. The waiters are knowledgeable about the wines and are able to help with wine choices to be paired with the food choices. It is a friendly place, with a few interesting twists for diners. The space is fairly small, but laid out well so you do not feel packed in. During nice weather, it is quite enjoyable on the patio, and I found this outdoor dining spot very romantic the first time my husband and I ate at the Wooden Table. We continue to take friends/family there for dinner, when time permits, and are always treated in a warmly welcoming manner by the staff.

    The food and the service were great, but we did have a few dings. My wife and I went with my mother and one of her friends at her suggestion. They had a very nice menu and we all tried something different. For starters we had the Sweetbreads and the Arancini. Both were fantastic. I had the Pappardelle and my wife ordered the Snapper they both tasted good but were a little salty. My mom and her friend had the Scallops and the Steak and they said it was terrific. One negative is that inside is VERY LOUD! When the restaurant is full you can hardly hear anyone speak unless they raise their voice. If it is nice out you would be better off outside. Another suggestion is bring a flashlight to read the menu. Way to dark.

    This is the third time we have been to the Wooden Table and the Second Time we have taken guests who enjoyed their wonderful dinning experience. The food was outstanding, presented well, and served perfectly. The service is always good with nothing overlooked. If there was any change I would make would be to offer a smaller and more reasonably priced wine list.
