We enjoyed outstanding service from our waitstaff at our visit for our 3:15 lunch at L Woods this week. In addition, the restaurant was clean and quiet. The food was fresh and delicious. Special thanks to Caleb and the waitstaff team.

We absolutely love L Woods and are frequent diners. My only complaint is that we were presented with our dinners within just a few minutes of receiving our appetizer. The wait staff assistant that delivered the meals acknowledged this by saying “oh, you just got your french onion soup.” He made no offer to bring the food back to the kitchen while we enjoyed the soup. He set the meals down and left.
Otherwise, the meal was delicious as was the ambiance we love so much. Denise Chumley

We have been Gold Lettuce members for years, but this was our first time eating here, and it was before an outside concert in Skokie. We ate outside, and our waitress was fabulous in getting everything ordered and presented to us quickly so that we weren’t late for our concert. The food was delicious. My wife had the trout, and I had the BBQ chicken. We split a wedge salad. We will definitely dine here again!

Server didn’t return my credit card after being given the card. Server abrupt in serving, never asked how our meal was- which was mediocre. Poor service, so-so meal = not going back.

We paid it, but didn't like the extra fee. We understand the pandemic times, but this restaurant has had a lot of traffic all during the hard times and there are lots of people here always.

Our visit was wonderful. We never felt rushed to turn over our table and enjoyed the Sunday Fried Chicken, a pulled pork plate and several drinks. The food is delicious and our server (I'm sorry, I just don't remember his name) was attentive, efficient and friendly.

Our only discomfort was that it was really cold inside. I had a light shirt to pull on, but my two friends were in sleeveless shirts and were pretty chilled until the restaurant crowded up more.

It's a go-to for us. We really like it there.

Great food and service! Everything was quick and efficient, which is greatly appreciated when you are dining with a 2 year-old. Our son was entertained looking around the decorated walls. It was a lot of fun!

One of my favorite and most consistent places I have found in Chicago…..my 1st choice for any special occasion. Wish you would offer the Prime Rib special more than once per week.

Lwoods used to be my favorite spot, now it has lost its touch. We ordered grilled calamari that had to be sent back twice. The Lwoods chopped salad was not chopped, the lettuce was like a garden salad. My bbq chicken wasn't great. Drinks are way overpriced. I hate to not love it here anymore.

I still would recommend this place, even though our experience was pretty disappointing. It was packed for a Monday night. Our waiter had several large parties and he was doing his best. The food was not up to par, since I have been several times before. The walleye was terribly over cooked, we got turkey dinners without the stuffing and were never told they were out. We were promised substitute sides which never came to the table. There were no bussers. It was incredibly noisy, especially the table of six well-oiled people sitting next to me. Very disappointed as it was my birthday. Will try again in a couple months or so. Maybe.

Always a great place for dinner. We've been there many many times. Unfortunately service was terrible last night. We waited 20 minutes after getting to our table for someone to ASK us about drinks but that's only because I stopped them!! Otherwise who knows how long it would've taken. It took a while to get the drinks, take our order and get food. The table next to us sat after us but git everything before us. We were there for 2.5 hours for 4 people!! Never before have we ever been there that long and they were not packed! We'll go back because we love the place so hopefully this was a one-off.
