    Unfortunately they were overbooked and understaffed - we had reservations and still had to wait for both a table and drinks - the staff seemed unorganized but friendly. The menu was prefix and even though we had placed our order a week prior they didnt have a record of it - the soup and salad were good but the entrees were bland and not warm. We wish it had been a better experience especially given the cost!

    We appreciate our local restaurateurs and businesses in general, but when they excel it truly brings our experience to a brand new level. Location is a bit trippy, but its something you can remember, along with the fabulous food!

    The service was unfortunately horrible. Very unorganized. The wait staff was scrambling and appeared to get tables confused. We were there for nearly three hours and one entree was not edible. Cold and dry as if it had been sitting around. Beautiful setting though.

    What a treasure! We happened upon The Woods Lodge through Front Porch Forum. We are new to the community and hadn’t heard about this lovely place. The food, the surroundings, the attentive staff, it couldn’t have been more perfect.

    Very good food and wine. It was a chilly night and did not expect to dine outside. Would have liked to be inside. A warm night, would have been lovely.

    This was a surprise. The food was fabulous and a very good value, too. It felt like an adventure getting to this hidden place in the snowy woods. I would do this again.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at this beautiful location in Northfield, a gem nestled in the woods of Northfield. The bar area was warm and welcoming, while the dining room was elegant and peaceful. Don't be put off by the remote location -- it is worth the drive. The family welcomed us and served the food in a professional manner. Quiet jazz music accompanied our meal. The wine, the appetizers and the entrees were all delicious. We will go back!
