This was the first time at the Woodbury- it was a delightful surprise. The food was inventive, creative and most importantly tasty! lots of new takes on old favorites. Our server, Ava was friendly and attentive.

Bottomless mimosas were delicious, and you can switch between flavors for $2 extra. Highly recommend the Mango chili! Server was very attentive and made great recommendations. The ambience was perfect for brunch, quiet enough to hear my party but not so quiet that you felt uncomfortable laughing out loud.

I love the unique food flavors they have! The service is super professional and kind, I forgot our server’s name but she was great! I thought the portions were a bit small at first but somehow all the food we had was surprisingly filling. The bulgogi was incredible and the French toast as a dessert was so good.

We celebrated a birthday/beating breast cancer as one of our friends just finished chemo. Prior to us arriving when submitting the reservation request via Open table as normal we selected we were celebrating a birthday/ beating cancer for a table of 5 and asked if possible if they could seat us in the best table. As we were driving up and walking in I questioned if they even read the memo/note as it does not seem like most restaurants do.

To say we were blown away by the premium service and how above and beyond they went would be an understatement. Our server Mama T was the absolute best, and you could tell she made all of this happen but it takes a team. Not only do I believe they sat us at the cutest booth they had, but they shared the kindest words, the food was delicious and they even had a pink themed cheesecake made for our special friend. We ordered the deep fried PB&J, brisket biscuits and gravy, chicken hotcake tacos and the shrimp + cheesy grits tostados along with the endless mimosas. Everything was delicious, only comment would be the shrimp has more of a Smokey taste than buffalo in our opinion but it was still good! The grits were bomb and the fried PB&J was mouth watering.

This was probably the best experience we have all had at a restaurant in a very long time, and they have made a forever customer out of us all. Thank you to the staff, Mama T and the bearded baker for making our girls day!

Out of 1 appetizer, 3 entrees and 1 dessert at 7 pm ( close@10). Weren't told about unavailable items until trying to order the 3 that weren't available. Obnoxious table nearby were drunk and cussing which went unaddressed even after another table requested to be moved.

We were pleasantly surprised! 3 out of 4 ordered the Patty Melt and it was awesome. The fries were soooo different and soooo good. We will return. I'm a breakfast anytime person, and I want to try something on that side of the menu.

We got into town late on Friday and was able to get a table for seven. Everything was wonderful. Our only complaint was all steak options on menu were not available. Everyone found other choices and the food was excellent. We even tried the fried PB&J. Surprisingly delicious. The cheesecake was also superb. Would highly recommend

We sat ungreeted for 10 minutes. Then I spoke to someone and the server arrived a few minutes later. The food was good, but not good enough to justify the prices.

Service was a bit slow. Not because of our waitress. She was great, but rather it was a packed house and it took time to get food and drinks.

The waitstaff was very hip and energetic. We ordered the veggie melt with corkscrew fries at the recommendation of our servers. It was tasty but a bit rich for my diet - definitely a good sandwich but not for someone concerned about cholesterol. The atmosphere and decorating is really nice. Great vibe!

Chimy wings didn’t have any seasoning. French toast had way to much nutmeg it over powered everything! I was charged a large coffee when it was a small.

The food was excellent! The PB&J wings as well as the crab rangoon dip - outstanding. The ravioli lasagna was hearty and filling. The sandwiches and burgers were slightly smaller than expected but there were a lot of fries. The nachos were slightly disappointing in comparison to the rest of the food which likely set the bar too high. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and plan to return.

I love the food at the Woodbury every time I go. They have vegetarian options for me and meat options for friends. This is the first time I’ve been when they had live music. The guitar playing was awesome and the singing was decent.

Brunch menu was phenomenal! Everything looked so good as I watched waitstaff delivering orders. I ordered the candied bacon crepes. They were a good combination of savory-sweet, and the portion was hearty--I couldn't eat the whole thing. Combined with a mimosa, it made for a fantastic brunch. Nice atmosphere, if a bit loud.

Food was excellent. The cheesecake was amazing. Will definitely be back. The only reason I did not rate a 5, was due to the extremely slow service. I can't imagine what it would be like if the restaurant was crowded.

Overall, the place was cool. We ordered the crab ragoon dish which was absolutely DELICIOUS! My sister got the chicken tacos but she didn’t like the chili aioli mixed with the food, so she ended up scrapping it off her meal and overall enjoyed the dish. I got the shrimp and cheesy grits tostada; the shrimp was perfectly grilled and seasoned. In our opinion, the price doesn’t really match the amount of food you get. Lastly, the service was not great; our waitress barely came to our table, she kept walking pass us and attending to other tables, I had to flag her down to just get a refill of water and we sat with empty plates at the table for a while before she came over to remove them.

Grabbed drinks with a colleague and enjoyed! We didn’t get food (wish I could write a review without rating that part) but others around us did and it looked good.

This is a gem and I’m surprised I hadn’t been before! Easily “short drivable” or “10-minute walkable” for anyone on Cap Square in Columbus. Atmosphere at 2:15 was very quiet and good for conversation.

The food is great, but the mimosas are better. Having brunch everyday all day made this place a quick favorite. I go as often as I can. The server Tina is a gem, and the chef Ryan is great.
