    Wildwood Kitchen is a great neighborhood restaurant. The menu is limited in variety. What they do serve is very good. Prices are high for the neighborhood, more like downtown Bethesda. Portions are small but adequate.

    Went with wife for a 1:00 PM lunch on a Friday. Food was excellent. Scallop appetizer memorably good. Bread was excellent perhaps a curse for anyone who is middle aged or older. Spouse had an entree of tomato salad with a large portion of swordfish. Fish was brilliantly cooked and the dish was quite tasty. I had lamb meatballs which were also excellent. The food listed above with a bit of wine was as much as one could eat for lunch. Overall a good dining experience

    Offerings are eclectic. Some that I have had were outstanding; most were very good. Have not had any that I did not like. Service is ourstanding -- quick, pleasant, concerned but not cloying. Ambience is light and welcoming. Seating is not crowded. Bar at front always seems occupied, but not noisy. Not inexpensive, but a good value.

  • Too LOUD!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2002VIP
    Dined on 8/12/2014
    This restaurant has a menu that is short but very interesting. Unfortunately, it is an echo chamber, which makes it very difficult to converse normally with your dinner companion. I went with my daughter and specifically requested a booth at the back because of the noise levels. First they tried to seat us at a table in the middle. When I asked, they agreed to put us in a booth. Unfortunately the booth next to us had two very loud guys in it. Spoiled the entire meal. Why do restaurants with a lot to offer (good food, service, etc.) design their spaces so that customers can't talk normally with someone when they're spending $100 or more for a meal together????

    Unpretentious little restaurant in a strip mall several miles from the center of town. Interior comfortable and very inviting. Service was friendly and gracious. Interesting albeit limited menu. My wife and I shared a delicious pate with rustic bread as an appetizer. My lamb meatballs were wonderfully seasoned and my wife had a very tasty steak. Nice wine list but somewhat on the expensive side. Definitely worth the short ride from the center of town!

    We two ladies had a very pleasant dinner. The food was delicious and beautifully served. We wanted to share our entrees. The waiter went back and re-plated so we had 2 plates for each entrée, each nicely arranged. The restaurant is small and very nicely decorated. It would be a romantic place for a couple. We ate early on a weeknight and it was fairly quiet. By the time we left, every table was full and the noise level had risen. I will be back regularly.

    The meals start with fabulous crusty bread. Of the four meals we had, the two fish (salmon and swordfish) and duck were delicious. The veggies in the salads and the side dishes were cooked just the right amount. The seafood stew/soup, a daily special, was the only dish rated just o.k. All in all, much better food and ambience than you expect from your local strip mall restaurant.

    Attention to detail is the name of the game here. I have eaten here three times in the past month and have found the food, cocktails, and service excellent each time. The cocktails are inventive and delicious, and the warm and wildly flaky bread is extraordinary. I could almost stop there. The seasonal appetizer of watermelon salad with goat cheese is memorable, as are the seafood dishes with their perfect small accompaniments. The lemon pudding cake with pistachio crust and blueberries may well be the perfect dessert. The service is well timed, attentive, and friendly. The ambience is warm and welcoming. Everything shows the signs of quality and care. Highly recommended.

    Had a really enjoyable dinner at Wildwood kitchen. There is no kids menu, and with two children that could have been an issue. That said, the restaurant staff accommodated our kids beautifully and split a full-size entree between them. The food was delicious - great flavor combinations and perfectly prepared. Excited to return and try something else from the menu. It is relatively expensive for family dinner but worth a visit nonetheless.

    had plans to go to a concert at Strathmore and this was close by, figured it would be a winner since it's a Weidmeyer restaurant. Food and service were very good, and they also put a candle in my girlfriend's dessert. The atmosphere is kind of suburban and quiet since the place is in a strip mall, but besides that it's a nice place

    Met an old friend for lunch; picked a place near my office. Wildwood Kitchen deserves its fine reputation. Wait staff welcoming; table quiet so we could talk undisturbed, which we did long after the meal. Offerings perfect for lunch - light to substantial offerings with flexible salads to which you could add chicken, shrimp, beef. I had the BELT (a BLT with Egg and Avocado) - an excellent summer special. We left feeling refreshed and grateful we made the right choice.

    Everything was great - from the decor to dessert. Cocktails are interesting twists on old favorites, wines are good, and the food - divine. Waiters attentive but didn't rush, plates delivered only when it was time (hate getting my main while still eating my appetizer, which far too many restaurants do). Specials the night we went were absolutely wonderful - love the interesting seasonings that take a meal from good to sublime. Caution: Can you make an utter pig of yourself with the delicious bread and flavored olive oils.

We were seated at a little booth for two; very romantique... The food is excellent and beautifully presented (clams, scallops, sea food stew special of the day and lamb meatballs, peach tarte and home made sorbet)... a flawless experience... We will come back!

    A great place to have a wonderful meal with fantastic service. Chef owned and inspired dishes - a delightful surprise for those who haven't made it there. But make reservations! It's a small place that gets busy quickly. Did I say, they use grass-fed beef, organic foods? And, they have wonderful coffee and bread.

    This is the second time I have had lunch at Wildwood Kitchen. My first experience was pleasant, but my second was not. I meet friends for lunch, our order taken, but waiting 25 minutes for our meals, I called the waiter over to ask about the delay. He had not entered our order into the computer. We waited another 25 minutes before being served. After asking for the check, we waited another 10 minutes for it and then were handed the wrong check. Disappointing as the was a first visit for my friends.

    We went here for Father's Day and I've been here for lunch before with co-workers. The food is amazing and the presentation is just as wonderful. The price is reasonable. I will say though, they seem to be a bit under staffed, so the service was a bit slow. Other than that it's a great restaurant and I highly recommend going!
