We have dined at Wildwood Kitchen frequently, but unfortunately the menu seldom changes and the number of specials is few. Beyond that, our waitperson did not approach us for more than 10 minutes because she was describing her law school experiences to a couple at the next table. To top it all off, the restaurant did not have any of the first three bottles of wine we ordered, despite the fact that they were on the by-the-bottle wine list.

We are great fans of the Wiedmaier restaurants, but this dining experience did not live up to our expectations.

As WK regulars, we've come to expect a lot, and once again we were not disappointed. Especially good were the kale salad (yes the kale salad) and the hanger steak.

We were celebrating my daughter's birthday. She is a vegetarian and was able to find many things on the menu that she could eat. As we left she said she was going to recommend the restaurant to her best friend who works in the food industry. My only disappointment was, even though I mentioned when I made our reservation, that it was a birthday celebration, no mention was made of it and no token dessert was offered as is done in so many restaurants. We spent $100+ dollars for lunch for two, which I feel is pricey for two pasta entrees, some cauliflower and carrot soup and one glass of wine. Everything was delicious and artistically presented, so it was worth it for an occasional treat. However, it will be a while before I will be going back.

My wife and I ate dinner with a couple of friends. Overall the food, especially dessert, was excellent, but my wife was not happy with her hanger steak dinner, which was skimpy and tough. As always, the service and atmosphere were excellent.

Really nice neighborhood restaurant in an upscale strip mall. Excellent food created with care. Wonderful service. The ambience is fine but not particularly special.

The food is fundamentally good but the menu is quite limited and does not change frequently. Cost is fairly high given average decor and good but not fabulous food.

Felt like it was good food but nothing special. And expensive for what you got. There was not anything unique or interesting about our meal.

Wonderful.
My only suggestion is to have the light fixtures over the booths
set at a lower setting . It was a little too bright.

This a special New Year’s Eve for their Prix Fixe Menu review; not the normal menu.

We love Wildwood and wanted to have a quiet and intimate meal. All expectations for the service was there and we were seated quickly. The Prix Fixe Menu was well laid out and the choices were good. The price was $85 per person and that was a reasonable price for NYE.

At the same time; the food was well prepared and tasted fantastic; I just wish the portions were slightly bigger. Don’t get me wrong; I am not expecting a huge feeding trough... just a little more.

The Chestnut/Foie Gras soup was amazing, but was seriously like 10-12 spoonfuls. The peppercorn steak was great by being perfectly prepared. It would have been great to be just a little bigger.

Anyway... we love this place and will be back many more times in the future.

We had a great anniversary dinner at Wildwood and I plan to buy a gift card for my bro so he can do the same this summer. Great food, great service, and lovely anniversary perks! The only odd thing I found for the evening was the choice of music. I thought the 80’s rock music was a bit antithetical to the dining experience. As a musician, I would have opted for jazz or classical, only because the average age was mid 60’s, and I doubt those folks are into 80’s rock. A little food for thought...ba dump bump!

The pasta we ordered had no taste whatsoever and we returned as uneatable. The cauliflower we were served instead was pretty good.
The duck, the second dish ordered, was good but not as good as it should or could be.
Both the appetizer (Lamb meatballs) and the dessert (rum cake)were excellent. If only the main dishes had been as good.
We had eaten at Wildwood Kitchen several times in the past and therefore again expected food of outstanding quality. All in all, a very disappointing experience.
