Ever since the first caveman decided to slap a side of mammoth over the cave fire, man (and woman) has enjoyed the flavor of food cooked over a wood fire. At Timber Wood-Fire Bistro, all of our dishes are made from scratch using the highest quality ingredients. They are then cooked either over our state-of-the-art wood burning grill or in a brick oven heated by the embers of logs.
Cooking in this way imparts a slight smokiness as it brings out the natural flavors of the food. A juicy ribeye sizzles and caramelizes, giving the tender beef a gorgeous crust. The homemade dough for our pizzas rises in the heat, and the crust gets to be the perfect combination of crisp and chewy. Vegetables share an entirely new flavor profile when cooked over wood. Dining at Timber brings an experience both classic and innovative. Come eat and drink with us as you watch our fireflies dance above the wood-fired grill.

The food was great; we had the Saturday night Special. There was an issue with our bill but when we went back the next day, we were able to get it straightened out. We plan to return for another dinner.

The most noticeable factor was that the restaurant was LOUD. As in not at all as advertised on Open Table (good for dates and cozy). If you go here for a date, you may want to opt for bar seating (side by side) or in the back. We were seated at a two-top right by the door/front desk. Not very date-ish.

Service was good, even though our server dumped an entire glass of water on me. Fortunately, I was not wearing any dry clean only. Also fortunate it was just water. Kind of disappointed that we were not offered anything as a gesture, such as a desert or a comp on one of our bar drinks.

The food was good overall. Definitely get the focaccia and the artichoke dip. My duck was a little overcooked but not horribly so. Flavors were excellent.

Went for happy hour. Drinks were done, and expected. Food was disappointing. Charcuterie board (warm board) was disappointing. The meats were minimal and tasted too processed. I know firing everything is their thing, but this would have been better with better quality meat uncooked. In addition, better selection/quantity of meats needed for cost. Wings were of good quality/size, but needed cooked a little longer. We had the meatballs, but since I did not try them, I cannot comment on quality.

When we first showed up, our waiter acted like he would have rather been anywhere else in the world, but finally warmed up a little at end of meal. Not sure if this was just the "be nice at tip time" move, or true service improvement.

Finally, the restaurant did not check me in and I got a "you did not show up for reservation" from open table. Not sure why this happened since they were not busy when we checked in. But a troubling oversight none the less.

I used to live in the neighborhood before Timber Woodfire was in Countryside Village.
It was truly a delicious brunch. We received an appetizer of sorts which was a cinnamon roll that had been pre-fried. It was delicious. I had waffle with berries, which was also delicious as was my husband's egg dish. Both entrees were better than ever tasted elsewhere. The waffles were almost too sweet, but I didn't leave any on my plate.

The service at this restaurant was terrible. I ordered the salmon and waiter laughed at me when he asked about how to cook it. I’ve never been asked about color of salmon. Also, I assumed we would receive bread or something. Nothing. No salad ... nothing. Wasn’t asked either. Then he never came back to table. Someone from kitchen brought food and was good but very small portion for price. I will never come here again or recommend.

It was a pleasant dining atmosphere and good service. The food was average. Was expecting a little better. My husband had chicken he said it didn’t have a lot of flavor and was just a big piece of chicken very few veggies with it. I had the fillet which came in slices and was on very thin mashedPotatoes that had something crunchy in them. I had three baby carrots for a veggie. The filet was tender and tasty but I would’ve much preferred a more traditional cut.

New Years Eve. So I get that they were busier than normal and we took that into consideration. 4 of us and the kitchen messed up our salads as one of us didn’t want Blue Cheese and another had the wrong dressing. Entrees were also messed up as one fillet was potato crusted and another was blue cheese crusted however we couldn’t just switch plates bcus one ordered Med and the other was Med Rare. Pork tenderloin was raw in center- not pink almost rare but definitely rare. Asked server and she had manager come over at that point and said it was fine to eat but we didn’t want to risk it, also the Wagyu beef that was ordered Med Rare was very rare and chewy. Not Wagyu so don’t sell it as such. Bummed about the experience. Want to try one of their pizzas sometime but I don’t know if I can talk my hubby into it.

I didn't love the Timber fries. The thinly sliced salami tasted tinny. The fries would be great with just the crunchy mushrooms, Cordon blue cheese sauce and chive cream.

Our service was extremely slow when we got there. We had made reservations so we knew we were expected. It took us all of 30+ minutes to get drinks including water. We were finally advised that our server was pulling double sections which attributed to our delay. It would have been nice if the manager acknowledged because it was really frustrating for our party of 10 and it was obviously very stressful for our server, John. Once John was free from the other section he was great and it's because of him that I gave this place a thumbs up.
However, very disappointed in the upper management addressing our needs.

This was my second time at Timber. It’s a hit spot, smells great in there, cool ambiance. Our waiter was really stiff...attentive, but not that effusive. Food was very good with exception of Foccacia appetizer. It’s bread with cream dip.

We went to Timber for brunch on a Sunday morning. Waiter and staff were friendly, knew the menu well. Ordered steak and eggs and the everything bagel, both were fantastic! Went at 11am and it was not crowded, by the time we left around 12:30 the place had filled up. We will definitely be back to try the pizza and more dinner options.

I had been here twice in previous years and decided to never go back because while the food was delicious, the wait for it was so slow. However, I am so happy I returned. I've now been there twice in the past three weeks and the food has been delicious and service has been excellent.

We were seated in the back room which was quaint. Our waitress seemed to be having a hard time being attentive to her tables. They were out of our top three choices of beer off the draft list. We were passed by the waitress a few times before she came to take our order. We had the sausage fennel pizza and the timber burger, which was underdone and soggy. It was nice they apologized and provided a free dessert; however, the dessert pizza was our choice and it should be taken off their menu. It was just a pizza crust with berries & whipped cream on it. We were excited to try this bistro but unfortunately it was not worth paying for.

I have eaten here at least 6 times and never know what quality of meal we're going to get.The service has always been very good and the ambience is fine. I ordered a sushi tuna salad that was tasteless and had tuna so tough it was inedible. My wife ordered a mushroom pizza that had a nice thin crust but cardboard would be more edible. I don't understand how a restaurant can be so inconsistent and stay in business!

Excellent waiter - great service and very friendly. Two of us ordered the schnitzel, one ordered the prohibition chicken, and one ordered the porchetta. All but the porchetta were a hit. Very noisy and we were seated at a community high top table with unusually high, uncomfortable bar chairs. Not terrible, not great; won't rush to go back.

Timber used to be our go to neighborhood spot. Service has always been spotty, but the other it night is was terrible. We were seated right away, but waited and waited for our waitress to pay any attention to us. She finally took drink orders, but it was a very long wait to get 3 glasses of wine ... even longer to get the fourth ... that we had to ask for repeatedly. Food came out promptly (thankfully not by our waitress), but when we done and trying to have birthday cake that we brought (and cleared with the restaurant in advance) our dirty dishes just sat there. I finally cleared some of them myself.
