    We had a reservation for 715, but arrived at 630 and were seated right away. We started with the pumpkin dumplings as an appetizer, even though it was a main course. The chef split the order in half so my husband and I could each enjoy a portion. They were great. I got the crab cake dinner and my husband got the fish fry basket. Both were fresh and very tasty. We were even given a complimentary dessert for our anniversary.

    As all the reviews attest, this is the place for great food and service. It was very laid back, but yet elegant. One of our party was almost 45 minutes late, but all the staff were telling us to relax, don't worry. Because of the this place's popularity, and I'm sure a full reservation list, I really thought it would be a problem. But there was no rushing us. Food was stellar; even the coffee was the best I've had out.

    As before, Woodberry Kitchen left us all impressed! The service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about recommending and discussing the menu. Ditto with the sommelier and with a nice wine list. Six of us ordered a wide assortment and I sampled them all. Each was very nicely done in its own way. You will not be disappointed. Only criticism is that even with a reservation we had to wait 45 minutes for our table. The staff was very apologetic and did bring us a complimentary appetizer while we waited. It was a busy night at a very desirable place, it happens.

    We had a great time, the food was great, the service was really good. The only disappointment is that we were a party of three and they sat us on a tiny table that made us very uncomfortable due to luck of space.

    I went for my anniversary and was kind of disappointed. The wait staff were great and the baked oysters were amazing but I will say, not a place for a romantic evening. the tables are way to close together. i couldnt concentrate on my own conversations because all you could hear was the buzz of other conversations around you. The metal seats were freezing. the beet salad was just fair for the price. And the scallops were WAY over salted. I just feel for the price everything should be perfect. I did however love the fact that almost everything was local and very creative. It was hard to rate the restaurant above because it really depends what you like or what you are going for. The salty scallops could just have been a fluke.

    I frequently go to Baltimore and have always wanted to try this restaurant since I first read about it in the Washington Post. I finally made it there and we are already planning on going back the next time we are in the city since the menu changes constantly. There are so many interesting options on the menu it was hard to decide but the wait staff was very patient in helping us navigate thru so many enticing plates.... We ended up ordering several of the smaller plates versus something from the supper menu so that we could try more. No one at the table could decide which was their favorite because everything was delicious. Go early and check out the neighborhood - there are also several interesting storefronts to explore.

    This was our first visit to Baltimore, and Woodberry Kitchen was recommended by friends. We were not disappointed. What an impressive menu from local providers! We enjoyed some amazing oysters at the bar while we waited for our table to be ready. The cocktail menu and wine list is impressive. Our son loved the wide variety of beer available. Everyone enjoyed their dinner entrees; we shared the apple pie dessert which comes in its own cast iron little pan. It was delicious. The staff was courteous and attentive, the decor warm and inviting. We will go back when we visit again.

    Had heard of Woodberry Kitchen before ...this was our first visit. Celebrating two birthdays. All of the food was fresh and delicious. Most memorable, interestingly, were the starters and the dessert; the favorite starter was the beef tartare. Dessert was, per Tom Sietsma's review in the Post, the ice cream sundae with marshmallow. Outstanding.

    My wife and I celebrated our 31st anniversary here. All the wait staff and hostesses couldn't be any better. The filet was the best ever. The clam and noodle dish was good but not great. Service was excellent. Caesar salad was all right but unremarkable. Pumpkin tart for dessert and the hot fudge sundae were impeccable. The bread was fantastic. The music was exactly what we wanted to hear: Talking Heads, Pretenders, etc. We will definitely come back soon.

    We loved every brunch dish we ordered, from the pumpkin whoopie pie to the egg-and-slaw-on-a-muffin. The candied yam and Earl Grey lattes were superb. And our server was not only charming and attentive, but she wrangled the latte makers to come over and show us how they make their cunning designs!

    We come to WK a few times a year. The food never disappoints. My dining companion always gets the french toast, which varies seasonally. I was overjoyed to see all the oysters on the menu. I went with the fried variety and they were perfect. The seasonal mimosa was pretty perfect as well. The service was just okay this time. The server I think had a lot of tables. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait long to clear the bill, but otherwise, the service was fairly hands off and absent. I also had to wait nearly 15 minutes for my second drink... I ordered it right after the main course came and it came just as we were finishing.

    My wife and I visited Woodberry Kitchen for Sunday brunch on a sunny late morning in October. Dining outdoors was heavenly, much quieter than indoors, without any sacrifice in the quality of service which was outstanding. I had a breakfast enchilada - wonderful - and my wife had a hash, which was delicious but a bit too salty. Brunch, thoroughly filling, fit our budget better than dinner. We will return for brunch!

    We arrived a half hour early four our table and were offered to sit at a high top at the bar. A watress greeted us and asked us what kind of water we wanted. A second waitress came and took our drinks. So far everything was great. Then a full half hour came by and we never received either our water or drinks. My boyfriend ended up just going to the bar. While he was gone a waiter stopped at my table and brought drinks that were not the ones that we ordered. This was my boyfriends first time at Woodberry, and I don't think he would ever come back. Once we got to our table things went good, our server was great but overall we were not that impressed. I always recommended Woodberry for special occasions but this special occasion Wasn't special

    Have been there several times before and lived everything. This time was less stellar. It was a Saturday night so it was very busy. Our waiter wasn't very attentive, our soup was served lukewarm, one of our 4 meals was served a few minutes after the others. It's been much better in the past so I'll give them another chance.
