    Wood Ash Rye is always such a special treat. Although they did not have the pork chop that we love to eat on the menu, the steak was very good as well. Our server was very kind and attentive and it made for yet another beautiful night out.

    So, I thought having biscuits as an appetizer was a little strange, but we ordered them and we're very surprised. Theses are the best biscuits we ever had. Even better then your grandma's. We had stuffed ravioli, braised and smoked ribs, and duck tacos. The portions were small but shareable. I didn't think we were going to be full but we were at the end of the meal. It was a little loud but the decor and atmosphere were spot on. We really liked this place and we definitely be back the next time we visit St George.

    We were a bit early for our reservation, but the hostess seemed very distracted and harried as she asked us to wait for a table to be prepared. We were sat in the back corner with no lights and our candle holder had no light in it. I had to steal one off of a nearby table so we could see our food. We waited for a very long time for our entree after our appetizer and we ended up sending it back because it was too spicy and the rice was undercooked. We waited for a very long time for them to run our check. Also, we noted that it was our anniversary in the reservation, but it was not acknowledged at all throughout the evening. Our server, Brandon, was great though a little too absent when needed. Having us tucked in the dark corner probably didn’t help. We’ve had a better experience at Wood Ash Rye before, but it will likely be a while before we go back after that dinner.

    Amazing place with amazing service. Great ambience. Cool vibes! We have got enough to try most things on the menu. They are all thoughtfully prepared and well done. Every item isn’t for everyone but if you take the time to explore the menu you’re going to find some gems that you can’t find anywhere else!

    The food was so terrible. We ordered 4 different meals and they were all bad. My sons pasta wasn’t even cooked through. The prime rib sandwich was all fat and no meat. There was all breading and no chicken on the chicken biscuit sandwich. The Turkey sandwich was terrible, the Turkey was dry and chewy. I will never go back.

    We enjoyed the dining experience here. The food overall was excellent though the dessert was pretty disappointing. We showed up 5 minutes early for our reservation and still waited 20 minutes before being seated. Our server was super fun and friendly, but not very attentive. IMO the best fine dining in St George, though there's not an abundance of competition.

    THE ABSOLUTE WORST SERVICE! We decided to give Wood.Ash.Rye another chance since our previous experience was also terrible and this time the service was non existent! We sat at our table for at least 15 minutes and NOBODY came by or even made eye contact to let us know they would be helping us. The person who I assumed was our server came to the table next to us and didn't say one word to us. He literally bumped into my husband and didn't say a word. 2 other tables who were seated after us had their orders taken and drinks delivered as we sat there with ZERO service. To say our CHRISTMAS DAY reservation was a complete bust is an understatement. We finally got up, put our coats on and informed the host we were leaving as nobody bothered to come to our table. I understand it was a holiday but it was not understaffed. How they can charge what they do for their food and drinks and deliver the worst service I have ever encountered in beyond me. Extremely disappointing to say the least.

    I have a problem understanding why such a pricey "high end" restaurant has such mediocre service. Also, while the food is interesting, the menu is very limited. We were seated quickly but it took way too long for any of the service staff to acknowledge our presence. We were about to leave when my husband flagged down a staffer who said he wasn't our waiter but to his credit did go to find a server who then hurried over. The food came up quickly and was good. We ordered the pasta dishes which, though skimpy in portions, had great depth of flavor and were delicious. The pumpkin pie is the best we've ever tasted and highly recommend it. Nevertheless, feeling deflated by the lack of proper attention and service, we are unlikely to return.

    This is definitely a mixed review. The place is cool and industrial style but that also means that it’s very noisy. The server brought us one wrong dish and then we were charged for that same dish later but they took care of it right away very swiftly with no questions asked. The fried brussels sprouts with compote and dried blueberries were out of this world as was the cocktail we were served. The biscuits are a very nice homey touch and delicious. Our problems came with the main courses. The fish special of the day was seared scallops. That is something very tricky to do well and these small bay scallops were over seared. My paparadelle pasta was very heavy and the portion was too large. You could literally cut that in half! It also was not very well seasoned and I had to ask for salt and I had to keep adding it. We also had a special drink/dessert which was eggnog Affogato and this was not a well thought out drink in my opinion. The eggnog ice cream was excellent. I wish that that had been served with the espresso poured over as in a traditional affogato and perhaps the liquor served on the side. The alcohol overpowered the espresso and it looked like a big muddy mess with a little lump of ice cream in the middle. We have been to Sego in Kanab which I understand has the same owner and actually had a much better overall experience there. But this place has so much potential! I had to wonder whether the very young chefs behind the line we’re really trying the food because anyone with a good palate would not have let some of that pass.

    This was my second visit for lunch. It was very good both times. I've eaten the Fish & Chips and the Open Face Prime Rib Sandwich. The ambiance is lovely and relaxing. You feel like you're not in St. George. Good acoustics - you don't hear the din of voices from other tables. I didn't notice background music so it must have been low and you didn't have to try and talk over it. It was classy.

    New chef, new very SMALL menu… a bit disappointing to be honest. Seems it went to ‘comfort food’ which means fried and lots of bacon in dishes. Nothing against bacon, but other than avocado toast and simple salad, hard to find something healthy for lunch. Looking forward to an expanded menu.

    Food took forever to come out for some of us so those of us that did receive food had to either sit there and not eat while their food got cold or eat when others weren’t served. Not good choices. Two people in our party didn’t get served until the rest of us were finished. This is the second time in a row that this has happened there. Food was average for the price.
