They’ve done a good job of adapting their service to outdoor needs. Good process around masking in minimal contact. Food’s as good as ever.

From the just-picked flavors and crunch of the Summer Vegetables with Cauliflower Babaganoush to the woodfired sourdoughy Tandoori pizza, the appetizers were delectable and offered artful flavor combinations.
I still dream of the chilled fennel soup served in a cute milk bottle on ice to be poured over tiny marinated kohlrabi in a cold bowl: perfect for a hot summer night at this boho-chic, farm/sea-to-table restaurant.
For the main event, we dove into the flaky crab cake. The fingerling potatoes, warm in a vinaigrette would make any potato lover smile. Our kids shared the Don Taco and loved it.
As for dining during COVID...Woodberry has gone out of their way to make dining a touch-free event: Single use menus, tableside flag to signal for service, scan-able bill payment, masks everywhere.
The hip life guitar music, attentive service and amazing food let us escape from our house and we are so grateful Woodberry Kitchen has opened back up.

The setting and the food were both outstanding. Very attentive service, yet respectful of the Covid-19 situation and gave us space. The use of a flag to raise when in need of attention was smart and practical.

They offered outdoor dining only. Menu was limited because they weren't back to full capacity. But everything was excellent and well prepared. Drinks were also very good. They have implemented safety procedures due to COVID and they were well thought out. Even though their website said they instituted a time limit to allow time for cleaning it was not enforced due to insufficient demand for tables.

Per usual Woodberry Kitchen was amazing tonight. Even with the Covid-19 restrictions they did an excellent job of being safe and providing excellent service. This restuarant never disappoints and is on par or even better than experiences at Rose's Luxury and other top notch restaurants. Their strict adherence to quality local sustainable food is impressive. I highly recommend dinner here!!!

Great service, very nice venue outside, but very expensive limited menu - $30+ tacos, $40 crabcakes (not jumbo lump meat) - with "good not exceptional" food quality. An important Baltimore "gem" and worth supporting, but be aware the typical Woodberry Kitchen food experience does not seem to be possible right now.

Apple Sazerac and Pushing Up Daisies cocktails were great.
Stated with the clams from the oven, carrots from the oven, and the cornbread. Wow!
The wood-oven on-the-bone ribeye was great, and the lily gilded with the crab, brussel sprouts, and silky potatoes.

Second best meal we’ve had in 2020.

Just wanted to have a nice date night. Everyone was amazing!
Tristan was our waiter and he made great recommendations and never rushed us which made the evening so enjoyable. Morgan made some wonderful wine recommendations. I love that they sell wine that you would not normally drink. We got to try some new great flavors! Woodberry is one of our favorite restaurants and we have never had a bad experience. We look forward to them opening again!!

This meal was not our first meal at Woodberry Kitchen. Everything was great for the most part. Our waitress was nice, the food and dessert were delicious. During our previous dining experience, the barista had made our normal drinks with flair. Our iced teas were shaken and slightly frothy our after dinner chai was infused with maple and a cookie. We thought we would experience the same thing with this meal. We did not. It just took away from the experience and left us feeling let down and slightly disappointed. Sometimes it’s the little things that make the evening memorable. Otherwise, an overall good experience at the restaurant.

Brunch was a bit disappointing this time. My croque madame sandwich tasted a bit burned, and the egg was overdone on my wife's grits dish. For small expensive portions I expected better. Dinner here in the past has been amazing, may try that again, but I think I'll skip brunch here next time in favor of a place that specializes in it more.

We have been there on several occasions and have always been thrilled with the food. On this occasion, in addition to the food, the service rose to exemplary. Starting with the free valet service, to the hostess, Sara and our waiter, Frank Lazzaro and all the other wait-staff, the food was severed expeditiously and made to the customer's liking. We found the bar selections, funky and DELICIOUS. There were several simultaneous birthday celebrations and it seemed that all were in a joyous mood. The food was plentiful, delicious and served straight from the oven. Desserts were a fine way to cap off a wonderful evening.

We have had prior good experiences at the Woodberry Kitchen, but this time was a disaster. We had early reservations at 5:30 yet when we tried to order the large format steak and crab imperial we were informed it was sold out. So 3 of our party of 5 ordered the individual steak dinner and all 3 were not edible. The steaks were so tough they could not be eaten. All were served cold and one was literally raw. We complained to the waitress and manager and refused to pay for the bad steaks. We had ordered lots of appetizers most of which were OK. The oyster chowder was very good. Baked clams and oyster pies were just OK. Mixed drinks were poor at best. About half way through our meal the bar area became so overcrowded that it was ridiculous. They had us near the bar so the noise level and number of people standing over our shoulders was obnoxious. We will not be going back any more and we cannot recomend it.

Saw on Best Thing I Ever Ate w Duff Goldman. Nice, modern space in old mill area. Some dishes contrived; trying to be something new and different. C.M.P dessert nothing special after you crack the sugar top. Ice cream house made was good.

A fantastic night out, the experience was amazing! The scene was beautiful and the staff was absolutely perfect. Any plate that you were done for they moved it out of the way for you instantly and refilled your beverages the second they noticed it was running low. The food tasted completely delicious and the coffee being even better!

We tried Woodberry for brunch recently. I have been wanting to eat here for a while but the consistent reviews on the lower end of the scale prevented that. After relenting, we thought we would give it a go. Overall, like most of the other critical reviews, our experience was "meh" and I won't be going back.

Food: I had the Croque Madame which was very tasty. But this is all that was really good. Also ordered the cheese grits, which were under-seasoned/ needed salt (of which was not on the table). Also ordered was the trout benedicts which were sent back - the whole wheat bread was toasted beyond edibility - hard, dry, tough, difficult to eat. The deviled eggs were just ok (I have made much better at home) and only 3 came in an order for a table of 2 (for $9 - an egg and a half for $9). For a larger table or for a table that wants an extra egg (per the manager), an order is 4 (at the same price); if that makes sense, I don't know what does.

Ambiance: Very noisy and busy. Pretentious. This is a place for yuppies who don't know truly good food and want to be seen. Nothing wrong with that, just stating it for what it is.

Cost: Exorbitant for what it is. The food is just ok but way over priced.

My husband and I had a great brunch meal at woodberry. The wait staff was great, friendly and attentive. I think the only negative comment I have is for all the care they take to make sure the food is locally sourced we were surprised that we were given a plastic straw instead of paper. To us it sends a mixed message. We did tell staff but think it’s worth mentioning. The little details are what really show your commitment.

The food this time around was spicier than it has been in the past - lots of fish pepper and chiles. The server was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He took quite some time describing the entire menu. The cocktails were fabulous; they are probably my favorite part of the experience.
