    This was our first time here. Our daughter and her husband recommended it highly for a special occasion, and we went there to celebrate one. We got the 7-course meal and my husband got the wine pairing with his. It was such a delight to anticipate each course, not knowing what to expect. Each one was beautiful in its presentation and filled with rich textures and flavors. The staff was excellent! We cannot speak highly enough of this dining experience! It exceeded our expectations.

    Service excellent. Ordered scallops and butternut squash soup for starters. Both very good. For main course we had Black Grouper which was delicious. The pork chop was a complete disaster. Chop was very thin, well done (server said chop cooked to medium), tough and basically inedible. Included on the plate as a side was a tasteless mash of something with a sliced apple and 2 potato chips as garnish. I was shocked. I wasn't in the mood to fuss, so I left the meal untouched and didn't say anything. Was curious if server would address. No one said anything. We paid and I learned a lesson. Don't order the pork chop at Woodfire.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Every aspect of our experience was terrible. We ordered 4 different cocktails and had to send them all back bc they were frankly inedible. Service was exceptionally slow and servers could not answer questions about the menu. We invited the owner over to our table and he was incredibly stressed out and angry, practically barked at us. The food was incredibly overpriced, we sent back our entrees (tough, dry, chewy pork chop for $30)...after more than 2 hours we left $100 poorer (2 beers, 1 wine, first course) and hungry. We went down the street to Fat Matt's Rib Shack and had the superlative meal we'd been seeking, at a fraction of the cost. Don't bother with this place. Kevin Gillespie is no longer there and it ain't worth it.

    Dined on 9/19/2014
    Woodfire Grill was in top 10 when I googled up a list for Atlanta and it's become my nr. 1! It is quiet and the owner and staff try to get to know their clients and you feel like you are dining in someone's home. The bar has bowls with inviting fresh fruits and garnish that the Bar tender mixes magical drinks with. They ask ahead of time if there are any special occasions or food allergies. I had my husband's Birthday dinner there and they had printed "Happy Birthday" on the Menus. The food is perfectly cooked no matter if it's steak or Fish. The Waiters are friendly and attending but not overbearing. If you are into a big hoopla for your Birthday or a scene, go somewhere else. They keep it quiet and classy at Woodfire Grill.

    I took a friend here for the food, reputation, and most important the menu showed a chocolate truffle cake which is her favorite. When they called to verify my reservation I made the comment "as long as you have the chocolate cake we're good" and was told yes and there was plenty of chocolate on the desert menu. When the desert menu arrived there was no truffle cake on it. Even as I write this, and the online menus are still not the correct menus. As for the food, I can only reply on my dish the trout which was a bit overcooked, seasoned nicely, but a fairly boring dish at 30ish dollars.

    We had a wonderful evening and experienced a truly welcoming atmosphere from the moment we entered the building. Every member of the staff seemed to enjoy being there and provided excellent service. While various staff served and described each course with different levels of precision and confidence, it did not detract from the wonderful experience. They were flexible and helpful. The only real drawback was the valet was very busy when we were leaving (on a Friday evening) and there was a little wait in a light rain until we were able to have someone bring our car. Overall, it was a fabulous evening.

    My wife and I dined at the Woodfire grill for our anniversary. They took excellent care of us during our time. We had the 7 course tasting menu (which was really like 12 courses) and each course was very well prepared, and full of flavor. I highly recommend it. Since it was our special evening, we were greeting as if we were VIPs (including our names at the top of the menu). The staff (all of them) made us feel extremely special and worked exceptionally hard to make sure that our evening was the absolute best. I would highly recommend the Woodfire Grill to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta and have a wonderful night out.

    I expected great food - but was surprised by the creativity, the excellence and the heart that made each dish more than just great. The staff was outstanding - a perfect balance of taking great care of us but yet somehow being unobtrusive. The sommelier helped us pick the perfect wine - suited our taste and at a good price point. My husband was impressed that he had a customized menu bearing his name when we arrived - and a beautiful, delicious dessert that was served on a plate with Happy Birthday written in chocolate. An all around excellent experience - topped off by the chance to meet the owner, Nick, who was so gracious and charming. We will be back!

    We have enjoyed Woodfire Grill through it's various re-inventions.At our latest dinner we could tell something was very slightly off...for example the shrimp appetizer was on a huge plate and only a small portion of it was filled on the side, the shrimp were also a tiny bit undercooked;the main dishes also had too many ingredients, as if the chef was trying too hard;no leafy salad available, the only item close to a salad was a reconstituted watermelon (quite delicious and original). After leaving we found out that both the bartender and executive chef had left the restaurant. Big loss to lose the previous executive chef and excellent bar tender, who were putting Woodfire Grill on the map in Atlanta at the very top of the culninary scene.

    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).

Although it was a tasting menu, the portions could have been a bit larger. The roasted beet salad and popcorn soup were outstanding.

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.
