Amazing food! Amazing martinis! Amazing service! I had the New York Strip and my friend had the Filet, soooo delicious! Will definitely be back soon!!
I loved coming in on Saturday for lunch. It was very amazing service. I don’t recall our servers name but she was a gem. The food was top notch. Restaurant was amazing. I had the chicken tortellini with pesto sauce and it was a 10/10. Thank you all for the wonderful service !
The service is always friendly and the breakfasts are always delicious. Me and my wife's favorite place for a relaxing and filling breakfast
Husband had filet and I had swordfish. Great martinis. Lots of space between tables- felt safe. Great service.
Had a great meal there on a quiet night. Seafood spaghetti was fabulous. it was 1/2 off bottled wine, so good value. Enjoy!
Excellent as always
Great food, great atmosphere and close to home. We forgot how much we like this place.
Food was ok. Service was friendly, but not great. Ambience was a bit dark and old. Noise level was very low - not too many people in the place. Food was over-priced for the quality. My leg of lamb was 80% rice, 10% veggies and 10% lamb. My girlfriend linguini and clams were so rubbery and overcooked she couldn’t eat most of them.
Thanks to Tony for getting us close together. The staff did an excellent job serving us for our family birthday gathering. Thanks!
Always a wonderful experience, one of our favorite places.
The downtowner is a perfect place for dinner. The food and wine and service and ambience were terrific.
Delicious meal. Drinks service was a bit slow, but there was a large group in their private room. Each person’s entree was cooked as requested and all were well seasoned. I am glad that I added a salad, which was delicious, because the vegetable side portion was tiny while the potato portion was enormous.
Excellent tasting food. The food was delicious and worth the price. Breakfast sides were a little overpriced but still tasty. Servers were top notch. Only real complaint was the lady in the table across from us wouldn’t stop talking politics while eating. Would return!!!
We enjoyed a great breakfast/brunch recently. Steak and eggs makes my husband very happy. And, at a reasonable price. It was our anniversary, and a stack of pancakes with blueberries and whip cream were delivered to our table. Yum! Very sweet of them to do that. We'll be back!
My first time here and will for sure be back. Had the beef kabobs and loved them. My wife had a very good steak that she chowed down. The house made bread was incredible as well was my Maker's Mark Old fashion. I recommend this place to all.
Overall good experience
Awesome food and felt very Covid safe for indoor dining.
This is our favorite breakfast place. The food is great and the prices are very reasonable.
The food was excellent and the service was wonderful
Great atmosphere and service! (:
Thw Woodfire is one the few restaurants in town tha never disappoints. We enjoy their breakfast's as well as their dinners. WIshing them the best in these Covid Times!
Excellent for all reasons. I dine there about four times a month. I remember the Downtowner when it was called the "Local" or "Low Cal" by the regulars. It just keeps getting better as the years go by.
Great spot nice fire place in the center of the dining room, not loud very relaxing enviroment which always makes the experience with the food that much better. Food is great as well. I will be back when I am back in Saint Paul.
Enjoyed the evening,
Great food & service. Awesome experience!!
Loved this place. Great for anniversary. Loved the atmosphere.
The worker was so nice. We enjoy our breakfast. The food was good and look beautiful. They even gave us a mini treat at the end because it was our 11th year Anniversary too. Very satisfying.
Went for breakfast. Service was outstanding. Ombiance perfect. Food was wonderful. I had meatless Cajun, friend had omelet. Only complaint is friend had 2 buttermilk pancakes on the side and it was close to $9.00 which we thought was pretty expensive.
Just a great place. The food is great, the people are nice and the ambiance top notch. I havent been there in a while. I forgot how great it was.
Amazing breakfast at such a good price. Brought wife and 3 kids here and we had a great spot, the staff were attentive and so helpful
Amazing food, fab service AS ALWAYS!
Excellent service and food. Very solid and consistent.
B-day . Thanks it was great!
This was my first breakfast. My favorite place for dinner over the years. Now my favorite breakfast location!
The salmon scramble was excellent. Had to try the fruit crepe. They are to die for!
Each entree was shareable. Generous servings and each was so yummy!
Server very nice and attentive.
Four of us went for brunch on a Sunday. It was close to closing so it was very quiet. But, we had a nice time, decent food and really great service.
Felt a lil too close with tables and number of people during Covid.
Very good dinner. We each had woodfired kabobs...buffalo shrimp and chicken. The buffalo sauce provides a nice kick!
Always. Good this time the halibut special was a bit dry
Always a favorite date night spot for my wife and I!
Elegant .. even inimprovised parking lot patio area .. pretty flowers in planter, lovely table settings w Moe himself there assisting our super server .. delicious food beautifully plated and presented .. my favorite spot .. always makes you feel pampered, special & well fed .. comfortable, casual but elegant..And the Burger Moe's Patio across the street is the prettiest in town.. with great burgers and salmon burgers, too
