    Attached to the Kansas Star Casino, Woodfire Grill is an exceptional dining experience, offering steaks and seafood +, We come here once a month, and we highly recommend the Woodfire. The food is always excellent, and so is the service,we have never been disappointed. Check out the wine dispenser in the lounge area, it's a great feature.

    This place was a pleasant surprise. We just returned from the Piedmont region of Italy and were surprised to find a wine on their list from that region. The wine was very good, the food was excellent and the service was superior. This is a restaurant where I would take friends or out of town guests for a special dining experience. My wife & I were celebrating my birthday and I can't think of a better place to celebrate a special occasion than the Wood Fire Grill.

    We went on our anniversary after meaning to try WoodFire Grill after it initially opened. A coworker brought it up, and I made the reservation. We had a delicious dinner. Everything was seasoned to perfection and came out at just the right temperature. We had two appetizers and two entrees. My husband had the prime rib with fresh asparagus, and I had the beef short rib with fresh green beans and puried carrots - both were outstanding. Our server was very professional. It was a pleasure.

    Everything about this place was great!! Our steaks were cooked to perfection and very tender and tasty. We had the special which was a lobster-meat cheese sauce on top and asparagus and cherry tomatoes. It was all delicious and the portions were big enough we took some back to the room. I enjoyed the bread that came with the meal and the variety of butter spreads especially the honey truffle.

    We received a great coupon from the casino so thought we would give it a try. It's quite a bit fancier than we are used to, but Ben made us comfortable with his suggestions, jokes and pleasant conversation. My husband and I enjoy our steaks cooked totally different, he rare and I med-well. They were both prepared perfectly. My only suggestion would be to have 4 bacon wrapped shrimp instead of 3 on the appetizer menu!

    The food is excellent and the dining area provides a wood-fire grill "warm" setting, with elegance. Our kids are not welcome at the other All Star Kansas Casino dining areas since they are not old enough to cross the gaming floor; therefore, we dine at the casino's Wood Fire Grill and it has been a very nice experience for our family.

    We went to Woodfire Grille this weekend for our anniversary. Wine list was cool on the iPad. Took a long time to get our drinks and salads but we weren't in a hurry. I had the filet which was cooked a perfect medium-rare. My husband had the prime rib. He said it wasn't "prime" but not bad and he cleaned his plate. Waitress was slow and forgot to deliver my husband's last drink by did remember to charge us for it. We had the carrot cake which was great but really enough for 4 people, not 2. Overall good experience and we will likely go back.

    A great place to dine. Steaks are so tender and cooked perfectly. Customer service is the highest. They have a wine list that includes some of the best high end wines and the price is very reasonable. This has become one of my top 5 dining experiences in the Wichita area.

    The Short Ribs were not very good and the dish was over cooked. Server messed up several orders and although the place wasn't even half full, she only managed to get me two drinks over the course of two hours. I did try a bite of steak an I was fine, but I wouldn't go there again. Also, the waitress had a mouth like a sailor. I wanted to like the place, but I just can't.

    Dined on 7/19/2014
    My husband got the prime rib with a side of lobster tail and I got the WET aged Ribeye. The prime rib was EXCELLENT and the lobster was probably the BEST we have every had. The Ribeye itself was very tender and an excellent cut but it tasted like a dirty charcoal grill...which was very disappointing. For a $30 steak they could have cleaned the grill. We also had the shrimp cocktail appetizer...very good. Absolutely best part of my meal was the BANANA BOAT drink. If you like banana, YOU HAVE GOT TO HAVE ONE OF THESE, but watch out it has more alcohol than you would expect, but amazing drink. Since my steak wasn't all that great, I had 2. : )

    The prime rib was awesome, perfectly cooked, and presented well! The halibut was fresh but the presentation took the flavor out of it. The only true downside here was the service. She did not know about the specials on the video board even after we mentioned them. She brought out more water, but we had to poor it ourselves. No service was present. Best tasting water I have ever had!!

    While we thoroughly enjoyed our meal, we were looking forward to a "fine dining" restaurant. To us, that means not only great food, but also a warm and intimate atmosphere as well as some sort of expected attire. What we found was a decent atmosphere, though nothing to get too excited about, and patrons who were there in ball caps, shorts (and not "nice" shorts, but some in athletic shorts) and tee shirts. While we enjoy this type of dress much of the time, we felt that a "find dining" restaurant should have had a bit more of a "fine dining" feel to it. Overall, the food made the experience worthwhile, but we won't be going back anytime soon.

    This was the second time we have been to the Woodfire Grill. We find the food for the most part to be outstanding. There are some things I had this last time I wouldn't order again. The calamari was okay but not good enough to order again. I had the prime ribeye steak and it was cooked to perfection with just the right amount of seasoning. A friend had the prime rib and said it was excellent. Another of our party had the Chilean Sea Bass and was extremely pleased. He didn't think the tomato and mozzarella salad was anything special. We use it for special occasions when we want to celebrate something. It is pricey but the service is great and the food for the most part is really good and it is quiet. You can hear each other.
