Supper Club in the city. Once thru the door you are in a different place. Warm, friendly, great menu and attentive service. An oasis in the city.

Unfortunately by 6:30pm, the restaurant had run out of the special; the main reason why my guests looked forward to enjoying a meal at this venue.

We always enjoy L Woods. Can be pricey, but the portion sizes are worth it. Always packed.

We had family in town so we naturally picked L. Woods. It did not disappoint. I just love L. Woods and will show up for special occasions whenever we can. We ALL ordered specials on the menu, and I think that's a good idea. We all had dessert, too. If you have not been, you should go. I'm a devoted customer.

I usually love the steak here but the last couple of visits have left me not ever wanting to return. I have had my filet mignon over cooked the last two visits and even after reporting it, I’m still left with that steak and charged for it. I ordered it to be cooked medium and received a well done steak (absolutely no pink in the middle). Because I’m starving, I would eat it and by the time I get to the middle of the steak, it is completely dried out and inedible. I have the server take it away and they act as if it’s no big deal. I don’t know if the restaurant changed owners or chefs, but quality control seems to have declined. So disappointed.

The Best Ribs I’ve ever tasted ! This was our first time coming to this restaurant and it was all worth the time to get a full slab of tender, meaty ribs that just fall off the bone! It was great to be able to celebrate our husband and dad here on father’s day.

Very busy with a senior crowd on Saturday around 4pm. Scottish salmon was excellent. $2 difference between Queen and King cut of prime rib. Take the King! Easily enough left for your doggie bag!

No complaints.

In a very crowded restaurant on a Sunday night, we were seated immediately for our 7:15 reservation. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. Food wasn’t great but not horrible either. Very family friendly which contributes to the noise level. Not up to the standards of other Lettuce restaurants but a good neighborhood place.

I like the ambiance and food. We went to lunch celebrating my birthday and took my Brother and Sister-in-law for the first time. They said they would return to L Woods. However, when I presented my Lettuce Entertainment Frequent Diner account, the waiter told me my account was invalid. I received an email today from them so I’m frustrated about that. I feel like I could have gotten a better deal using the Lettuce Entertainment Frequent Diners card.

A lot depends on who you get for waitstaff. Some are really good, and some are just OK. Doesn’t seem to matter how busy they are this is still true

Not one of our better visits. They were out of bbq or broiled chicken at 5:30pm on a Sunday. No excuse for the poor planning and it left two out of six people unhappy with their meal options. Then the kitchen didn’t read the servers notes to have the dressing on the side for a large salad with shrimp added. To make it worse, the original salad served had four large shrimp & the replacement salad had only two shrimp. They brought the missing shrimp later but by the time the issue was fixed many of us had cold food. My 3-star review is overly generous.
