Woodward Table Ratings and Reviews
On my most recent visit to Woodward Table, I had a horrible experience. Shortly after we were seated, the server took our order and then was generally unavailable. Drink glasses were left unfilled, and we were consistently looking to obtain the status of our order. After waiting 45 minutes for our food to be delivered, we inquired on status with another waiter and were told it would be out in 2 minutes. Another 10 minutes passed, I spoke to a manager who was unaware of the delay. He eventually tracked down our food, which showed up one (1) hour and ten (10) minutes after our order was placed. At that point, we were late for meetings and had to take the food boxed up.
Overall a very disappointing experience. I won't be back anytime soon.
Our Bolivian waitress was awful. One fleck of crabmeat in the asparagus and crabmeat soup was pointed out to her. She did NOTHING. We asked for separate checks. Didn't happen. What DID HAPPEN WAS AS SHE GAVE US OUR CHECK WE GOT TO HEAR HER LIFE STIRY OF WORKING EVERY DAY OF HER LIFE WAITRESSING. HMMMM, hinting at a big tip? Really offensive. Love Chef and his food. Will avoid waitress and so should restaurant.
Our waiter was fantastic !! I didn't get his name, but he is from the Netherlands. He was attentive, professional, friendly and offered to give us six separate checks without us asking.
He made all the difference in our dining experience. Looking forward to trying their WTF option.
The service was excellent! Though the restaurant was quite busy (was lucky to get a table because I booked 2 hours before and not many spots left!), I was well taken care of. Front staff very friendly. Anticipated ordering the crab cake BLT, was not disappointed. My first time will not be the last!
I'm generally a fan of Woodward Table, for its setting and service, which make it a nice place to share with a friend or colleague. Previously, I had only been there for lunch, and have been favorably impressed by the food. However, this dinner was kind of a mixed bag in the food department. My colleague raved about the burger, and the rolls that came with the meal were delish. However, the "large bites" seafood board I ordered was odd; most of the individual components were fine, but the composite was jangly and not very satisfying. The special lobster bisque ordered by another tablemate was a bit pallid and lacking in the richness you'd expect for the price. However, the desserts were tasty and the decaf coffee was good. And the service, as always, was caring. Despite the food blips of this visit, I'd still return.
We had a disappointing lunch. Here are some of our complaints: the waiter made us feel rushed in placing our order. We requested rolls, but there was no butter. Two of us ordered fries, but it took a very long time to get ketchup. The waiter also removed a roll that was left without asking (and told an employee to "toss it"---yes, within earshot of the table).
Food and service were excellent but the particular time the 5 of us went to dinner there was an extremely loud and obnoxious older women yelling and sounding kinda crazy. We mentioned it to the staff and they did NOT do anything. Even people around us were talking about how unsettling she was while we were trying to eat and enjoy dinner. Not cool.
We arrived a few min early and the hostesses said you are early you will have to wait a few min.
I could see 4 tables for 4 open just around the entrance so I could not understand why we would have to wait. Even after another staff member came to the entrance the two of them jay chatted.
We wait 5-5 min and we're seated.
Our server was new and as best we can tell being trained. They were not doing a very good job and that is not his fault it's managements.
Our food was very good.
When you go out to dine a large part of the experience is the service and they failed miserably.
We had been to Woodward Table before on a trip to D.C. (July '15) and enjoyed it very much. It seems as if the menu had changed quite a bit this visit and prices had gone up, while options had decreased. The food was good, but our service was poor--so inattentive that we had to ask another server for a dessert menu and for our check.
Oysters, crab and asparagus soup, and Arctic char were fantastic. There was a long lag between first and main courses, and one of the entrees (crab cakes) was nearly cold when they came out. Waiter was charming and atmosphere was nice for a Mothers Day Eve dinner.
I had dinner with two friends. All of our food was excellent. The menu is interesting with items that would appeal to varied tastes. What we particularly appreciated was the noise level. So many restaurants are so loud I'm exhausted by the end of dinner. Not at the Woodward
