Everything here is always wonderful - my only comment is on the prices. I find the cost of the food and the drinks to be about 20% over every other restaurant in the area. Not that it's not worth it, but everything here is VERY expensive.
Yet another wonderful meal at Wildwood Kitchen. Great place for conversation without shouting!
Traffic delayed our arrival a bit, but we were warmly welcomed, and within minutes the ambiance and a happy hour drink provided a calming influence. Wait staff rendered attentive service at the start and remained attentive even as the restaurant filled. Menu includes many tempting choices, and our appetizer (duck liver pate) and main courses (a special, duck confit, and an entree from the menu, bistro steak au piovre) proved beautiful to look at and wonderful to eat. Instead of a dessert, we split the honey crisp apple salad. Great idea! We'll look for an excuse to return soon with friends.
Visit with my mom who I haven’t seen in years.
OUTSTANDING! Food and service top notch!
Steak tender as can be.
Will definitely be back!
Small plates/first courses tastier than mains. Too many flavors on one plate and taste of scallops gets lost in the stronger flavor of the sides. Price of main courses seems high given the small quantity.
Lovely neighborhood gem! Definitely would recommend for a special occasion. The food was delicious - salmon exquisite!
Was just okay this time, not anything more. Disappointed.
One of the best meals I've had in the DC area in years! EVERYTHING, from start to finish, was outstanding.
Food provided did not correspond with menu and waiter did not forewarn us before food was delivered. Food was a huge disappointment and not as described on the menu. I would be afraid to go back and order as I would not be comfortable with what we might actually be served.
Sister and husband were in town and we wanted an opportunity to try someplace new. Overall the experience was very positive. Food was very good and service was attentive without being annoying. Especially enjoyed the mediterranean seabass that was crispy on teh outside and moist in. Had a great time and the decision to try was worth the somewhat out of the way drive.
I love this place. It never disappoints. The food, the service, are very impressive.
As usual, a very good experience. The only negative — and a minor one — was having to wait on ordering because of what must have been some confusion regarding who would initially take our order. After that, the service was very good and the meal excellent. The duck breast was outstanding as were the other entrees. Also, the place is fairly small, quiet and a great place to catch up with friends and family. Thanks Wildwood team.
Delicious food - just not a lot of it. Price fixe menu for Valentine's Day, which I was not aware of when making reservation on Open Table. $80 pp. Restaurant was half empty - maybe next year ditch that and allow diners to order from regular menu.
Great server, good food. But the restaurant ran out of lobster as it’s special surf and turf entry and rather than tell patrons, they substituted shrimp. Not exactly the same thing. It’s best to not surprise guests - especially negatively
Food was average and serving sizes very small for the price.
Our second visit and each time impeccable service and great food
We went because someone who worked there suggested Wildwood Kitchen had an excellent menu. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent; the service was excellent (attendant but not hovering); ambiance was just right. We will be back and will encourage others to have a meal at Wildwood Kitchen.
Wildwood Kitchen is a lovely place to meet friends for a delicious lunch with nice service
Food was great, as usual. I usually order the chicken. My friend had the salmon. Great flavor.
Food was delicious services great
We were 3 high school friends (many years out of high school) meeting for dinner as we try to do a few times a year. One of the gals had been before but 2 of us hadn't. Food was delicious and the restaurant was very nice and very quaint. I wouldn't have expected as much in this little shopping center but I was very pleasantly surprised. I will be back!
This is my go-to place in Bethesda--easy parking, great cooking, excellent wait staff.
We really enjoyed our food, the service and overall experience at Wildwood Kitchen. We will definitely be back again.
Went in on a Monday night to try something new with the wife. Had heard great things from a few friends. Definitely did not disappoint. We had the grilled octopus and the duck confit special. Both were amazing with outstanding flavor. Our service was top notch also, if you go in ask for Lauren.
Mary was our server, she was fantastic. She helped us navigate their menu since I have dietary issues. The food was perfect, we can’t wait to return.
We feel lucky to have this "neighborhood spot" that's worth the drive from somewhere else. As always, service was friendly but not nosy, helpful yet fun, and read our whole party well. The food is inventive and satisfying, and yet we can eat here with "plain eaters." A win-win place. PS - eating a stolen quiet lunch at the bar for a working mama is a real treat!
The food, and its combinations, is incredible. This is my new favorite restaurant.
Great food and wonderful service! Amish chicken a great choice.
Always great - thanks
Excellent service in a lovely setting. Will come back.
No complaints on this restaurant. Came here for a lunch meeting and it was the perfect setting.
I Wildwood kitchen is a decent restaurant that has Fasley overpriced. It had the nerve to charge $45 for restaurant week meal when all other restaurants serve restaurant wake me up at $35. The selection was also poor on the restaurant week menu and my guest and I ate off of the A La Carte menu .
The ownership has lost sight of the importance of giving value. This restaurant is located it in a shopping center and priced like it was located in downtown DC.
This was a planned pre-concert lunch that became a post-concert dinner. (Thank you Legion Bridge) I'm really glad that we kept our plan for Wildwood Kitchen. The food was superb - from the pumpkin soup to the pepper steak and ricotta ravioli. We found a delightful bottle of pinot noir to complement them both. After-dinner French press coffee stayed hot though two cups. The staff was attentive without being intrusive. And it was quiet enough to converse - which is more the exception many places. We absolutely will come back for other great entrees on their menu.
We always enjoy Wildwood. The food is fresh, vibrant, and delicious. A real gem.
Aside from a small plate of vegetable options the menu is not Vegan friendly & the vegetarian modifications are slim to none.
I was told the pasta is made in house...only way I would return if a Vegan pasta or burger became available.
The service on all aspects was very good, request Joel.
Love this restaurant. Delicious food in a relaxed setting!
We are moving and chose Wildwood Kitchen for a farewell dinner with very good friends. As usual, the food was wonderful and the service very friendly and helpful. We've never had a bad meal here.
I have been to wildwood about 10-15 times for lunch or dinner AND for NY eve for the past several years. They have lost a customer in that everything was BAD last night . From the very frigid temperature in the restaurant ( they told us they would turn up the heat, which they did not-do) to the food that was NOT TASTY AT ALL . I had the lamb shank that was awful and the custard desert that tasted like it was out of a prepared grocery store box. Two other people joined me to eat and their meals were equally underwhelming. They had the critical of char and the snapper as main dishes,. They were tasteless. Even before complaining the waiter brought salt. Their usual food is tasty w/o salt. It also took 4 tries to get the staff to bring their wonderful fried bread. We had been going there for the past several ny eves.
Unfortunately, for inattentive service, poor food and very frigid ambience ( for all of which we complained) we will never return even though it is one of our neighborhood restaurants.
