    Woodfire consistently delivers a fantastic experience no matter what you occasion. The food is great, the service is great. The attention to detail that is important to them in turn rounds out an incredible dining experience for you. I have been here several time both business and personal and I walk away feeling as if I were the most important person of the night. The seasonal change in the menu makes each experience unique.

    We went there celebrating my girlfriend's birthday, and it turned out to be one of the best dinning experience we've ever had. Went for the 7 dish grand tasting, and even designed to be "blind tasting menu", they were still willing to recombine/add our preferred/fav plate in it. And of course they taste great. I put a note upon reservation about my gf's birthday, they customized the menu and are very generous in special deserts and birthday cake w/ candles. We don't drink much, so they allow we have two half-cups wines. They are pricy but I guess you get what you paid for (and a lot more).

    We chose Woodfire Grill based on Zagat and TripAdvisor reviews. The food was excellent! We enjoyed the tasting menu with wine paring. This was one if the best restaurant experiences I've had. Although it was a tasting menu, the portions could have been a bit larger. The roasted beet salad and popcorn soup were outstanding.

    My recent visit to WFG was another wonderful evening. Over the years it has proved to be the perfect choice or for special occasions whether a reunion, birthday, or night out w/the love of your life. Even after moving very far away from ATL, WFG remains the perfect choice that I love sharing w/ others when I come back to the big city.

    Decided to celebrate my wife's birthday with some friends at Woodfire. They went out of their way to make it special for her. Creating her own keepsake menu, and many other touches. Food was phenomenal as was the service. Lots of attention was given to the smallest of details...down to the delivery of the food by the wait staff. Highly recommended.

    This is our go-to restaurant for a special occasion. The food is fantastic, fresh, local and cooked in the wood-fired grill in the center of the restaurant. The menu is printed daily, so let them known if you are celebrating a special occasion, and they will personalize the menu. I love the tasting menu - and the chef loves when you try it. Be prepared for amazing food, great service and little surprises along the way.

    I have wanted to try this place for a long time. The service was outstanding. The waitress even asked if anyone had any food allergies so she could recommend something. I thought that was a nice touch. The service was prompt and courteous. The food was very good but the prices are a bit steep considering the size of the portions. Due to the lively nature of the restaurant's acoustics, I would suggest they kill the piped in music! Adds too much noise.

    This was a night out for my girlfriends birthday. we selected the 5 course tasting with the wine pairing. I could not have asked for a better dinner for a romantic night out. Our waiter Robbie did a great job explaining the wine choices and timing was perfect. We had enough time to savor each dish and not too much time to wait for the next course. The atmosphere was quiet as it was a Tuesday night, not a heavy crowd but very comfortable atmosphere. After dinner we had a nightcap at the bar with Melissa and great conversation with Matt at the bar. We will definitely be coming back and sampling more of the menu.

    Now this is farm to table food! Everything we had was absolutely delicious and perfectly prepared, from the heirloom cherry tomato salad (incredible) to the Alaskan halibut (amazing) to the Georgia peach pie (scrumptious)! In addition, our server (Andrew) was exactly what you'd want in a server -- friendly, knowledgeable, attentive but not overbearing. We will definitely go to Woodfire Grill again and we'll request Andrew as our server. What a wonderful night! Thank you!

    We had a party of 6 which WFG was great about accommodating since we added two guests last minute. We enjoyed a cocktail while waiting for the rest of our party. When our friends arrived, we still needed to wait for our table - no problem we all wanted to have a drink in the bar anyway. The host seemed annoyed at our group - although we were the only people in the bar - and asked us to move to the lounge. Why? I do not know. Not very welcoming at all. Our table decided to go for the 5 course tasting menu at $75 each & four of us had the wine pairing. The courses were small and uninspiring and we were dropping $400 for a dinner for 2 . For that price, I expect an amazing experience and it was not.

    There are a few restaurants that are famous for their excellent tasting prefix course dinners in GA. One specifically that I recommend and love is Eugene's, and I was certain I wouldn't find a better experience nearby. I was dead wrong. Woodfire Grill outperformed in all areas I put a lot of importance in. The service was exceptional, the attention was great, and the little details the staff went above and beyond to make us happy was appreciated! My table had the 7 course tasting meal with some of us also getting the wine pairing. The food was incredibly fresh and delicious, and we were very happy with the wine choices. Woodfire Grill should be viewed as a model by other restaurants to reach the high quality experience offered here.

    If my wife & I lived closer to Woodfire, we would probably make this our 2nd home, at least at dinner-time. From the minute you are welcomed in the front door, the experience exemplifies what enjoyable dining is all about. The constantly-evolving menu, the juxtapositioning in complexity & simplicity of flavors, the brisk & accommodative attentions of the wait-staff, all without a hiccup; it's inspirational. Woodfire's execution in these things has been honed to its highest form of art. Best of all, it is relaxing and without pretense. Bravo once again!

    Some aspects of my meal were excellent, some good, and some predictable -- by that I mean could have been had in dozens of others Atlanta venues. The only serious negative is the wine list. It contains some excellent choices, however the chardonnay options were extremely limited. In order to get a decent wine, I had to go with a $51 half bottle. Or I could have ordered by the glass at $16 per glass. The best thing that I had was the lobster appetizer. It was truly outstanding. The rest of the meal was mostly good. Service and setting were perfect.
