WonderfulWe had a wonderful dining experience!! Food was delicious and ambiance excellent.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMYou simply must try this restaurantA fantastic experience all around. From the moment you pull your car up to the complementary valet, you are treated well and are made to feel like they've been expecting you and are just so happy you've made it. The same sentiment comes across in the food and obvious care taken with its preparation.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb experience all around.Superb experience all around. Great venue for special celebration. Food was first rate and you can watch it all coming together in a masterful consumable "symphony."5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMy second time visiting WKI have dined here once before and it was outstanding then as well. This time I went back to take my husband to celebrate our anniversary over brunch. The food was without compare. SO amazing, my husband said "this is the best food I ever ate" and i agree. The quality of the food, the delicious way they take comforting food and elevate it and add interesting twists is beyond. We also had amazing service from friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive staff. The hostess wished us happy anniversary and at the end of our meal the kitchen brought out a lovely plate with happy anniversary written in chocolate and cup of chocolate sorbet with shortbread cookie <3
I wish i lived closer so i could eat there more! This trip was perfect! Thanks WK.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond AnniversaryI made reservations about 3 months in advance for my Fiance and I's two year anniversary as she'd been wanting to check Woodberry out for quite some time. Needless to say she decided that ALL Anniversaries going forward should be celebrated there.
This place was INCREDIBLE, from the wait staff to to the dessert! We both enjoyed a cocktail from their signature selection and neither of us were dissapointed. We split an appetizer and couldn't resist going in for an order of the ladyfinger popcorn as well.
I cannot say anything bad about our night, it was amazing and we will definitely be headed back in the near future!
Thanks to all at Woodberry Kitchen for an amazing anniversary dinner with my Fiance.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!Some of the best food, great portions for the prices, phenomenal cocktails. All around great place.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWoodberry Kitchen1st time at the restaurant, the food was outstanding and the service was also. A very nice ambiance. The only criticism we had was the after the excellent food, great wine and outstanding service our expressos were borderline terrible.. but all in all it is a great place and we are hoping we just got a bad batch. Still plan on going back when we get the chance.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat Took Us So Long?We have known about Woodberry Kitchen for several years. Why it took us so long to go is beyond me.
The food is rather hard to explain without experiencing. EX- An appetizer of "Ramps on Toast" is a whole lot better than a menu or individual can describe. Most, if not all, food is sourced from The Chesapeake Region, which is an added bonus.
This is one of the few establishments which is rather pricey, but worth every penny. We will be returning very soon.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AManother lovely meal at WKnever disappointed with a meal shared here but especially sweet al fresca5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood timesI will be back everything was great my top 3 easy great food and the cocktails are serious5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMJust good?Sadly, I wanted Woodberry to be a great dining experience, but the food was just good. Nothing to rave about. The service was excellent and the dessert was very good.
Great for drinks and dessert, and maybe a snack. I plan to skip out on the entree next time. My mac and cheese and flatbread was good, but not great. I think it should be great when one pays a lot for a meal. So sad that Woodberry doesn't live up to its reputation. Or, maybe I was just there on an off night?5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timer.We are middle age couple who have traveled well and have been to the best restaurants in world. This holds up to the best we have been to in terms of ambience, food quality and service. Delightful with great friends to enjoy with. We would recommend to any age group even though we were, admittedly, among the older age group. A definite go to for us!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFlawless service, perfect eveningThe food was excellent. Eating the oysters was like hearing The Beatles for the first time.
The service, however, overshadowed the fine food and beautiful setting. I'm a lifetime bartender. I notice everything in a restaurant. Now that I'm a father, the one thing that truly matters is how the staff treats my children. My 5-year-old daughter felt like the only person in the room. Everyone she met remembered her name and commented on her pretty dress.
From the thoughtful kids menu to the homemade Play-Doh to the seemingly effortless attention to our needs, The Woodberry Kitchen created the best dining experience I've ever had with my kid.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat birthday dinnerMy husband took me here for my birthday dinner! it was out second time and it was delicious! the waiter was great and we loved everything we ordered! we will back back and def. would recommend to friends!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party of 4 were very pleasedOur party of 4 were very pleased with just about everything. One said it was a spectacular place! Our waiter was a tad pushy about the menu announcements but we went with the flow. It didn't bother me or detract from our experience..5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ExperienceWe really enjoyed our recent visit to Woodberry Kitchen. The brunch was fantastic and the food was so fresh. Our kids really enjoyed it as well. My wife ordered the chicken and waffles and I had the French Toast. It was prepared well and the French Toast was huge. My daughters enjoyed their food as well, especially the skillet potatoes and the scrambled eggs. We will definitely return to Woodberry Kitchen.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA terrific dining experienceBrought my parents and boyfriend to Baltimore from DC to celebrate a special occasion. We were slightly skeptical as our cab took us way off the beaten path to Woodberry, but as soon as we walked in, any doubt we had disappeared.
In the order in which they were enjoyed: the ambiance and decor of the place were fantastic; the staff was knowledgeable, personable, and prompt; the cocktails were really interesting and tasty; the food was wonderful and seasonal -- though a couple of dishes were slightly under-seasoned. Overall, delicious and a super enjoyable dining experience. I'd go back in a heartbeat!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEh...must have been an off dayI took my mom to brunch for Mother's day. She loved the atmosphere and attentiveness of the staff. This was my second time here for brunch. The first time was wonderful (stewed chicken and waffles...it was my birthday and I got engaged:). This time, my food was really oily and a little salt heavy. I have a sensitive stomach so I picked over it. I will be back just do not think I will choose the omlet dish again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedEverything about Woodberry Kitchen is spectacular. If you get the chance to sit in front of the brickoven, do so. Such a cool experience to watch the chefs create their masterpieces.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls night outFood And Wine Delicious ! Dessert was disappointing The coffee was not very good quality For such a high end Restaurant5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeI don't have much to say that hasn't been said in other reviews, but this place is great. My top restaurant in Baltimore hands down.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWoodberry Kitchen was in myWoodberry Kitchen was in my top three restaurants of all time - and probably toward the top. We will definitely be back again and again.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent foodOur second trip. Oysters were excellent as an appetizer. Husband and I had the entree scallops and swordfish. Both were excellent (loved the scallops the best). Our waiter did a fine job, but he wasn't as great as our first experience. A server can make a big difference in the overall experience!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous FoodAmazing dining experience. Will be dining there again soon! The hostess even shared her playlist with me!
Delicious local food, great service, friendly staff, cool setting!! I highly recommend.
And, the ice cream was to die for!!!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth itI can't say enough good stuff about this place. The food and atmosphere was amazing.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid Meal Every TimeThis place gets every detail right. The decor, the location, the food, the service, everything. The staff is very attentive and the food is amazing. These people love what they do and it shows. Your money is well spent here. Indulge!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy kind of kitchenThis was our first time at the kitchen and we actually made reservations on Open Table for next month before we left. There is a certain charm about the place that is hard to describe but you just want to come back. The idea of having a snack menu (not appetitizers) is fun. Food was great, Service was awesome, atmosphere is casual and fun.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Gluten-Free Menu!I recently was diagnosed with a gluten sensitivity, and I was pleased to find out that Woodberry Kitchen offered a gluten free menu. The menu had several delicious looking options in each category and I really enjoyed the food I ate! They even brought out gluten free bread which was pretty good, considering. Enjoyed the dessert as well! I definitely recommend!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFarm Fresh GoodnessThis was my second visit to Woodberry Kitchen, and I was not disappointed. The food is all farm fresh and absolutely delishious. The wait staff is very efficient, and were able to answer ANY questions we had about the menu. I would recommend Woodberry Kitchen to anyone looking for a wonderful and unique dining experience.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatThe three of us rated all our dishes highly. My only hesitation is that too much praise will mean that I'll never be able to book a table again in 2013!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and serviceOnly hitch - our table was not ready until 25 minutes after reservation time. Complimentary sparkling wine took that edge off!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experienceWoodberry Kitchen lives up to the hype. The carefully constructed dishes are excellent, from the cheese & crackers to the sundaes. I felt transported with the rustic ambiance and green view.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerWe recently went to the Woodberry Kitchen for our anniversary, and overall, we were very pleased. The service is impeccable, from the complimentary valet to the attentive wait staff. The decor has a rustic yet modern feel that provides a nice ambiance for the meal. We had the MK Meatballs as an appetizer, and this was arguably the best part of our dining experience, very well seasoned and quite tastey. My wife loved her meal (Shrimp and Grits), and mine (Middle Neck Clams and Noodles), was just good at best. Overall, very good experience, but the reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is I think the price point of the entrees are around 4 to 5 dollars too high, but I guess a restaurant that books out weeks in advance can get away with this.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMYumThe food was very good. The scallops were amazing! The scene was nice too.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat farm-to-table restaurantI had done my homework and made sure to get a reservation three months before my work-related trip to Baltimore. To begin with, the restaurant is situated in a great location. The restaurant, a former flour mill, sits next to a former steel mill now housing upscale apartments and businesses. Next door/attached is a great glass gallery, which was hosting a wedding reception that evening. Everything from the food to the service was top-notch! Don't feel intimidated as the staff is great in answering any question you might have about the menu. Pace yourself as you'll want to save room for one of their great desserts. And be sure to get a cocktail that comes in a copper mug! Overall, a great place that I highly recommend.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodie DelightI was in foodie heaven for two reasons: 1) the fresh food is exquisitely prepared; and 2) their gluten-free menu was equal to the regular menu rather than a kind but dull add-on, as it is in some restaurants.
I ordered Liberty Delight Tavern Steak medium rare for my main and that's exactly how it was cooked. Perfect. It was served on a bed of roasted vegetables that perfectly complemented the steak. Bliss! My husband ordered pork loin which he said was delicious -- after he recovered from its odd presentation in a pressed brick. Plum Forest was among the best of the flourless chocolate cakes I've tried.
Note: Very noisy. Go early if you want a quiet dinner.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful dining experienceif you want rustic local food brilliantly prepared and served to you by a friendly hipster lumberjack...this is your place. Seriously the food was fantastic as well as well as the barista. It's frankly quite rare to find a place that cares just as much about their drinks as they do their food and dining experience. The only reason I gave the service a 4/5 stars was because we got seated by the window and the light was blasting my husband in the face. I doubt this is a rare experience and he had to complain to the hostess before she took note. And at that she had to call over assistance to get the shades lowered. A minor fix in training and the the entire experience would have been top notch.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Delivers!Since our first visit was a dining experience, we made sure we included Woodberry Kitchen during a recent return trip to Baltimore! Easy to see how it was voted #3 out of 50 Best Baltimore Restaurants! Healthy, local ingredients perfectly prepared by chefs who are obviously passionate about pleasing their appreciative diners. We'll be back!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWoodberry Kitchen is a consistentWoodberry Kitchen is a consistent treat! The food, service, and atmosphere are always fully of vibrancy and fascination!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMScallops are divine!No restaurant does Scallops better than Woodberry. Great service as always. We were seated upstairs, which may have impacted the arrival of our entrees. They were not quite as hot as they should have been but still delicious. Hubby had steak, which was perfectly cooked. Normally give Woodberry 5 stars--4 stars this time because of the temp of entrees. Still our favorite place and we will be back soon!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMcant wait to go back!The drive was a bit odd from the city but as soon as we drove up to the building we realized it was character that could not be found in the hustle and bustle of the city. The ambiance was incredible, the staff warm and knowledgeable and the food was exciting and delicious. Would recommend to anyone looking for charm, delicious food, something off the beaten path. The wine list also had so much to choose from! We cant wait for another excuse to go back!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA Baltimore Treat!I travel to Baltimore for work and come to Woodberry Kitchen every chance I get. The atmosphere is great, the food is all local and everything is made at the kitchen. Including all the bread and butter. They use fresh local ingredients. It's a great experience, I highly recommend it!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWoodberry KitchenMy husband and myself have dined at WJ three times, and each occasion as special as the last. The food is gorgeously presented and tastes wonderful, with fresh ingredients and masterful preperation. In addition, all of the wait staff and waiters/waitresses are enthusiastic and genuine in wanting to make your time spent their relaxing and worthwhile. I will be back at Woodberry Kitchen as soon as time allows.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch Perfection. ThoughBrunch Perfection. Though it's a difficult table to get, your efforts will be rewarded. I could die happy after our awesome meal. Woodberry, you are enchanting. Thank you for what you bring to my life.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat out of the way find.Woodberry is a wonderful restaurant for an evening out. The ambiance is terrific. Warm and inviting with three separate seating areas: there's the bar area with an open kitchen that's very active; a large room that's lovely with high ceilings and the loft which is my favorite. In warmer weather there's a great outdoor area. The food is outstanding. Drink menu innovative. From the unique flatbreads to a steak you can't go wrong at this great, yet out of the way spot!!! For desert have the kitchen sink!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's hard to go wrong at WoodberryIt's hard to go wrong at Woodberry Kitchen. The winter can be a bit rough, but the rest of the year they consistently knock it out of the park. Weekend brunch is fantastic, and the dinner options are usually awesome. Yes, it's a bit pricey, but it is worth it!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBaltimore meets Napa Valley.....Being from California, I was immediately transported back to some of my favorite restaurants. The ambiance, food and decor was like coming to a large dinner party and the chef was a good friend who invited you over for dinner. Knowing that the food was grown locally made me even happier. We had the Fish/Clams and Crab Cake entrees which were both savory, soulful and delicious. Our appetizer was the Gnoochi, which was favorful and warmed my taste buds. For dessert we had "The Kitchen Sink", which is cookie dough ice-cream w/ brownies, blondies, whipped cream and chocolate sauce. The ice cream was homemade. Who does that? Woodberry Kitchen does and I loved it!! A wonderful experience overall.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was an absolutely fantasticThis was an absolutely fantastic meal! The scallops and the homemade noodles with clams were superb, as well as the braised asparagus. And the kitchen sink for desert was the perfect way to end a delicious dinner. Would HIGHLY recommend!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWoodberry Kitchen never disappointsWoodberry Kitchen never disappoints. On this particular night, their credit card transactons systems had gone down, and created a snowball effect of delay. They took it in stride, and we were seated with a minimal wait, and proceeded to have a delightful evening. Food was terrific, fresh and local and unique. Terrific oysters, desserts to die for. Our two favorite servers currently are Julia and Dana -- really knowledgeable and efficient, while friendly without ever being intrusive. And the vibe and the music are always spot on. Best decaf coffee anywhere.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding ! Great waitOutstanding ! Great wait staff, food is some of the best in Balto4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
