    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.

    No matter whether you go for lunch or diner, the selections are always good. it is a fun lunch spot that turns into more of a date type restaurant in the evening. The staple on the menu are tasty and the specials are an added attraction.

    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.

    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.

    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
