Very much enjoyed dinner. Loved the atmosphere and the food was very good. My husband had the trout and raved over it. I would definitely come back in the warmer months to have a drink outside and dinner.

This place remains gorgeous and the food never dips below excellent. My only slight gripe was a bit of a wait for our table, even with a reservation, when the restaurant did not appear full. But really still love WK & will return soon Also-awesome cocktails!

Woodberry Kitchen is one of our favorite restaurants, and it didn’t disappoint this time either. We were celebrating my daughters birthday and my husband’s birthday. We loved everything from the starters and drinks through dessert. I highly recommend the chicken and biscuit. It will be hard not to get that entree again and again.

What a great place! The service, food, and atmosphere were so perfect. The menu has something for everyone. We got deviled eggs & cornbread to start then had the morning flatbread and rockfish spread croissant with a side of cobbled potatoes and all of it was great!

We have never been disappointed with the quality and freshness of the food. The menu changes often based on the availability of local ingredients. The drink and wine list complements the dinner selections. The staff is very friendly and familiar with the menu.

One of our last date nights before our first baby arrives and woodberry, as usual, did not disappoint. Everything we ordered was delicious and they even sent us out a complimentary dessert to help celebrate the new arrival.

We wanted a lazy New Year’s Day brunch and hadn’t had a chance to visit Woodberry Kitchen since moving to the city. It was wonderful. The food was forward and creative. The staff was freakishly good - calm and warm yet attentive. They have a system for food allergies that will never make you fret about ingredients again! We have noticed that service in Baltimore just isn’t up to the national standard for whatever reason, but that’s just not the case here. I seriously cannot stress that enough, their team should be applauded.
Woodberry Kitchen is doing it right. The food is outstanding, the front of house staff is perfect, the facility itself is lovely. I’ll definitely be back for a simple weekday meal as well as a special occasion.

There were 4 of us, 2 mature couples, for brunch. Good range of choices for brunch, prices were reasonable, food was very good. Wine list on food menu was limited, but there is a more extensive list. That list contains many less-well-known wines, some from Greece, others from Pennsylvania, Virginia, and only a couple from Burgundy or from the better known regions of California. Cheapest Champagne was $111 a bottle. Having more readily recognizable wines at reasonable prices would be a good idea.

Second chance in month... New Year's Eve- you would think it would be exceptional. When one of the entrees is served cold (steak) and two orders of mashed potatoes served in cast iron pots is served cold, you are not happy customers. Manager stepped in. It took at least 10 minutes, if not more to get our cold food back. NO EXCUSES!!! Nothing in return from Woodberry to compensate us for getting cold food served and a long wait time, while others continued to eat their meals. We will not be returning for a long time.

Food was great. The two smoked oyster appetizers were awesome. It was New Year's Eve and the staff was working very hard. Minor issue with the timing on one of the appetizers, but the wait staff let us know. If our waiter was busy with other tables, the manager or other team members were making sure drink orders were taken or anything else was taken care of. Very happy with the dinner, service and the atmosphere at Woodberry. Looking forward to going back.

Great space, very good service. Hadn't been to Woodberry in a couple years and wanted to try it again. Had the same impression: Not as good as the prices would suggest/warrant.

Woodberry never seizes to disappoint. The service was excellent, the food was delish, and my little birthday celebration was perfect. It's a little noisy sometimes which is fine by me but, my boyfriend doesn't enjoy the "louder" atmosphere.

The food and service were outstanding. Our waiter clearly was excited about providing a great experience. The ambiance was warm and comfortable. My only issue was the gin & tonic, which wasn’t very good. The wine recommendation was quite good. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we look forward to returning.

We’ve been to Woodberry Kitchen several times and always have a wonderful experience. This time we went to celebrate our anniversary. The service was outstanding and the food was prepared perfectly and artfully. We received some outstanding advice on wine pairings and our server provided some thoughtful touches that we appreciated. Well done!

I am fortunate enough to not have to worry about prices when ordering in most restaurants. But out of the corner of my eye I happened to notice that a side order of carrots was $14 on the Woodberry Kitchen Menu. No, that's not a typo. Fourteen dollars for carrots. Let me now pause for effect.

Fourteen dollars for a small plate of carrots!!!

Made me wish I'd gone to Golden Corral. They charge half of the WK carrot price for a bountiful buffet. I'm pretty sure they serve carrots somewhere on that bountiful buffet. Probably not roasted in a wood fired oven but... goddammit... carrots better be wrapped in gold flake for fourteen bucks, Can I get an Amen?

My banker, however, was pleased that I had dined at Woodberry Kitchen as I had to secure a HELO to pay the bill. God only knows what they charge for brussel sprouts. I couldn't bear to look. The UBER you summon to take you to Woodberry Kitchen better be driving a Brinks truck.

great service by knowledgeable staff. wish there were more vegan options. only one dinner entree was vegetarian, making it the only option to make vegan. in contrast, there is an entire gluten-free menu of options.

Everything was great except the hostess. She refused to seat us even 1 minuet before our reservation time (12pm) we showed up at 11:55am - there were MULTIPLE tables open. We were told to have a seat and wait, 2 groups came in behind us, one with a 12:30 reservation and were seated immediately.

At 12:01 it was finally our turn and we were sat at a table that had been vacant the ENTIRE time we were there and waiting. When she came to get us to be seated she made a rude point of saying “we will now seat you for your 12pm reservation.” To top it off, she didn’t even seat us, but handed us off to a waiter who seemed VERY busy - as she casually walked back to the front.

We’ve never had an experience like this before and to have that be the first impression we have as we walk in the door, it did not set a good tone for the remainder of the meal.
