Love Redwood Grill. I realize that right now it's not a full service restaurant, but it would be nice if the servers checked in more often for refills. I didn't get a refill on my drink at all.

The only downside to the restaurant is that you order and pay online. It is a little impersonal. The food come out in a timely manner and our drinks were refilled.

Service was lacking, badly. Had to order via QR code and pay with tip in advance. No one came to the table ever except to deliver the food. Then poof! Gone. I had to flad down for more water.

We sat outside which is in a parking lot. Not a lot of atmosphere and no umbrella so very sunny and exposed . I understand the challenge for restaurants, but that was not great.

Food was fine. I had a french dip and it was fine. My girlfriends had big salads, so portion sizes were sufficient.

Maybe with indoor dining now allowed they can regroup on their process, service, atmosphere.

I appreciate the outside space they have created to allow for safe dinning. It would be nice if it were a little more sheltered so you don't feel like you are in a parking lot. The service was attentive and food was delicious as always. The bar menu is limited since they have cocktails on tap and cannot make to many original items.

The food was delicious and the service was great. They put in the effort to keep us warm since we have to sit outside and check to make sure we had all we needed. Will definitely be back!

Nice socially distanced dinner. Scan the QR code in the table to order. Only difficulty was ordering a martini as this wasn’t on the list of drinks, had to go inside to order. Everything else was very good!

The only reason for 4 stars overall was due to the reduced inventory in the bar as well as some mishaps in 2 orders, which is understandable under the circumstances. Although we were to be seated outside, it was quite cold for the elderly members of our party but they accommodated our party indoors.

Menu was great as was the food and service.

Well, it's strange times since must order the meal on phone or at their counter so not much service yet charge 18%, but understand the struggle. It doesn't have the wonderful ambiance it usually does but the food is always great and was nice to sit inside with the 4 other tables.

Our friendly, yummy place that says, "yes" to every request. Want the vegetables with no butter? "Sure!" Want a double order of their amazing truffled brussel sprouts with an egg on top? "Sure!" Want a giant bowl of dressing as my pal always wants? "Of course" and they remember that he likes that the next time we go. From the healthy choices to the decadent burgers and brownies, you will have a treat when you go here! Enjoy!

And, last night, they did a spectacular scotch tasting event for a birthday celebration. Over the top and truly an outstanding experience. Ask them about it. I don't work for the restaurant. Really. I am just an appreciative customer!

Awesome food! We’ve eaten at the Redwood Grill a half dozen times, both for breakfast and lunch. We’ve never had a bad menu selection, and the service is always fast and friendly. The only drawback is the restaurant can be noisy when full of people. Also, they don’t open for breakfast until 10 am. It would be nice if they opened a little earlier.

Met up with a friend and we were chatting at the table for a few hours. The waitstaff got that and didn't pressure us to leave and stopped by at reasonable intervals to check if we needed anything.

The signature cocktails seemed a little weak. But were tasty.

We ordered the brussels sprouts with pears and it was delicious except there were no pears. When I let the waiter know he apologized, and brought us another order.
I certainly didn’t expect another order but wanted them to be aware that it was important if the menu mention pears they were actually in the dish.
This waiter went above and beyond.

My third time here. I ordered the crab cakes and they were awful. If I ordered these on my first visit, there would not be a 2nd or 3rd. Needless to say, stay far away from the crab cakes. The wait person did not check me into my Open table reservation. My first 2 visits were good. I'll give them another chance.
