    Excellent food. poor service. We were seated at 4:30 on a Sunday and were the only people in the restaurant. The entire staff of 6 went back to the kitchen and chatted, laughed and giggled for about 10 min. We had to go find them to take our drink order. Food was worth it; but with 6 idle (busboy, waiters and bartenders) it was frustrating to have to go seek help - twice

    We have visited Wildwood Kitchen several times. The food on Tuesday was not as good as it's been in the past. My beef shank was rather bland, but my husband enjoyed his duck and the cod was probably the table favorite. Appetizers were good, not spectacular, and dessert was so-so (we had the coconut tart and fancy bread pudding). I enjoyed my glass of Tempranillo. Wine, beer, bar drinks selection is great as is coffee/tea service. Enduring assets: neighborhood feel and a quiet, relaxed atmosphere. I recommend WWK to friends often because it's quiet enough to have good conversation and I never feel rushed out of my seat. I was disappointed with the food this time, but the service was incredible as always.

    This is a lovely little restaurant with fabulous food. I'm not much for spending a lot on eating out and had I had 3 courses plus drinks and wine, it would have broken my little bank. But the entree was enough and terrific; the French-pressed decaf coffee was also wonderful. Very, very happy. And there is an early-bird special on weekdays from 4-6 which allows indiscriminate splurging if you happen to like the small number of choices available. Unfortunately, I have too many dietary restrictions. Go for it!!!

    Food was just okay; One of us had what was billed as beef osso bucco, which was a dried out short rib with no sauce. Another had the seafood pasta, and the third had duck- okay, nothing great. Service was mediocre and had to wait a long time for our waiter/waitress to pick up our credit cards. I The place used to be better.

    We've eaten here before and had excellent meals. This time the chef exceeded himself; every part of the meals (four of us all had different meals) was outstanding. The foie gras appetizer was wonderful; possibly the best we've ever had. Soup and salads were also excellent. Both the rock fish and sword fish preparations were perfect and delicous. My Braised Short Rib Jus, Pappardelle Pasta was tender and delicious. We had an Alsatian reisling that was great with the food. The service was perfect, matching the food.

    My dinner was very good (braised beef) but the rest of our party ordered the special which was red snapper. The portion was very small as were the vegetables. Wine was a bit pricey for a neighborhood restaurant. The service was excellent though.

    We've been to Wildwood Kitchen numerous times for dinner and it never fails to impress us with the consistent quality and creativity of its food offerings. Signature dishes such as the lamb meatballs are always good. The desserts are superb and just the right amount to sweeten your palate after a good meal. We went with friends this time and they are now loyal enthusiasts. Great place for dinner anytime you want a really good one!

    I want to like this restaurant because it could be a great neighborhood place. In fairness, I have had one very good experience but this was not it. The service made a movie road side diner look like fine dining. Plates were thrown on our table. Two out of the three orders were wrong and had to be returned. The bus boy reached over glasses to take plates and clear condiments before all parties were finished eating. Their prices would be fine if guests were treated with respect and had an enjoyable experience but, in the atmosphere they created, their prices should be lower than McDonalds.

    Wlidwood Kitchen had been one of our favorite spots in the area—until last night. The ambience was as handsome and the service as attentive as ever. But the food was a tremendous disappointment—my dining companion even got the runs. I'm hoping it was just an off night, but even so, given the price level customers have a right to consistent excellence in the kitchen.

    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.

    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.
