Overall, we had an enjoyable experience. Where I was disappointed was that I made sure to let the restaurant know that we were dining there for my husbands birthday and not one person said a thing. I do not expect a free dessert or drink but I figured it would at least be recognized by the waiter in some way. This is one of my husbands favorite restaurants and he picked here over others for his birthday and I think even he was a little disappointed.

Very good meal at Dogwoods. Had a 5:30 reservation which was a great time to go. Not too crowded. Food was very good. Had the scallops & wild boar which I thought was an interesting combination. Their menu has the the typical staple foods but I like that there are a few unique items which keeps it interesting. I'll be back.

My party ordered oysters, Brussel sprouts, lamb chops, walnut pasta with shrimp, boar and scallops, carrot cake and chocolate dessert.
The STAND OUTS were Brussel sprouts ( best ever), lamb chops (perfect), pasta (delisssssh), the carrot cake (different from the usual, in an amazing way).

We love eating here! It's been our favorite restaurant. The food is always amazing and different. The service is fantastic, they have a great team. This was our first time to do the chef tastings, and it was a real treat to hear from the chef that has been making the delicious meals we have enjoyed. Their bartender is also awesome and creative with his drinks. We did the wine and spirit pairings, which were perfectly paired with our meal. We are excited to do this again, and bring some friends!

First time at Dogwood and we did dinner with Chef Jonny at the tasting bar. First off, the service was fantastic. I appreciated that our table was ready when we got there and we were sat and greeted almost immediately. The food was perfect. The each course from chef Johnny was phenomenal and unique. We also did the wine pairing which was a great addition to each dish. I highly recommend this experience for a cool date night or outting with friends! We’ll be back.

I had the best dinner out in ages. So much so that I have already secured a reservation for a future experience.

Chef Jonny was engaging, warm and served each selection personally. I hoped to enjoy my meal, but instead I was bowled over by it. Every plate was thoroughly cleaned before being retrieved by the waitress. We chose the cocktail pairing and the value was unexpected. The drinks packed a punch and contained ingredients mirrored in the food.

To my surprise people were “dressed up” in this place. Therefore you will get the side eye if you show up in jeans like I did.

Two main issues—slow service and very loud.

It did not look understaffed. I saw 5 servers, 2 hosts, 2 runners, 2 bussers for 15 tables. We were having to flag the waiter regularly. We arrived at 7:30, seated promptly, and entered our dinner order at 8. we didn’t get our food until 9.

The food was very good (not great) but I was also very hungry so take that with a grain of salt. No bread or any standard “welcome” offering —just water. Wines were pricey compared to the food, but good selection.

Staff was friendly. Open concept (kitchen/bar/dining room) with high ceilings means it was very loud and, at times, hard to hear the people at your table sitting across from you.

A great spot. Ordered the market fish special (sea bass) and it was wonderful -- perfectly cooked and seasoned set on top of a orzo and veg combo. Don't miss Dogwood if you are in the South Park area.

Excellent food. I got the Duck and Dumplings for starters and the Scallops and Wild Boar for entree. Both AMAZING! Sat at the bar. Drinks were good. I had good company so I wasn’t concerned with the ambience.

The manager stopped to thank us for visiting and he knew that we had recently been to a sister restaurant. Our waitress provided us a complimentary dessert in honor of our anniversary. Several different staff members checked on us throughout the evening. The oyster appetizer was delicious and the Sea Bass and Trout entrees were very good

My husband and I did the Chef’s tasting experience that included 3 courses and 3 speciality cocktail pairings. The food and cocktails were exceptional. The service was spectacular. Chef Johnny and his team did an amazing job with the food tasting. Eli made awesome cocktail pairings with the food. Can’t wait to do this experience again.

This was an exceptional experience. We did a “chef’s table” seating at the bar looking into the kitchen. Every dish was exceptional and surprising. The wine and cocktail pairings put it over the top!

The Chef experience with Jonny was amazing. The way they pair drinks with the food is good. You get to see first hand how the kitchen is ran and the chef is open for questions. Loved the different foods, it’s the unknown of what’s coming next that’s exciting. Hands down the best experience I’ve had before and after the pandemic. All the staff is welcoming and they have differ specials during the week. Tuesday was burger day. The burgers looked so good being prepared especially with the Mac and cheese appetizer! Will return

Jessica was lovely and efficient, the food was OUTSTANDING! We had the duck breast and the chicken and both were perfect. We shared succotash and it was tasty. The wine director was amazing and so friendly and welcoming. Our dessert was a warm carrot cake and we loved it. An excellent first experience
