If you're seated before your other family or friends, be sure you watch out for them. Happened twice that reservation staff said I wasn't there yet, had others waiting.

The past three times I have been here I have noticed how good the service is each time. You don't have to search for a server, they all know all the food on the menu, needs are anticipated, and the check is presented all without making you feel rushed. Excellent job.

5/12 1pm seated promptly, friendly inviting front staff. Reservations are highly suggested, without 45-60 min wait. Restaurant was jammed. Always good food and service. Our waitress Joy was most attentive, great personality. Enjoyable dining experience.

Lettuce entertain you restaurants are fabulous but this one is over and under dated. Needs a lot of new things to do. Also very difficult for people to get seated. Front desk isn’t doing their job need a new manager or someone to help out too noisy too rushed and not the type of environment for a local Lincolnwood restaurant.

Server was marvelous, informative and didn’t hurry us (HS friends reminiscing). Received a flatbread on the house for being new customers - delish! Entrees were good size, well cooked and seasoned. Baked Apple Manhattan was also wonderful. It is on the noisy side but we had a booth in an alcove so had no trouble. Regular table may have conversation issues

L Woods was good as always. I had the brisket sandwich, which had a chunk of meat that was not chewable. Also, the fries are fabulous ... hard to stop eating them.

L. Woods has become inconsistent in both service and food. The whitefish did not taste fresh and was poorly cooked. When we questioned the waiter the reply "That is the way it comes". He did not wish to be bothered.

This is a sprawling, busy, somewhat noisy, fairly traditional restaurant and it was great. Great food choices. Very good food. Eager to cater to my friend's food allergies. Wonderful service. Easy parking. Good value. I hadn't been to L Woods in years, but I will definitely be back soon.

This restaurant has been consistently great for over 40 years. Formerly named Bones; friends and I went there every Friday for over 10 years straight ! It’s that good.

People move things change but L. Woods has stayed great since the doors originally opened. While the only thing constant in life is change; I’m grateful the quality , service and excellent food has not.

Hey, I know Richie Melman so I should get a table without waiting....LOL

The food at LWoods is consistently good. We always start with the chopped salad. There was 3 of and the size of the salad is perfect. I am a fan of the Chicken a la Sima and really enjoyed the roasted vegetables as a side. My hubby had the fried chicken and was extremely impressed with the flavor throughout. The service is outstanding... everyone works well together to keep the dining experience moving smoothly.
