I had a reservation, but had to wait nearly 30 minutes before being seated. Other ppl came in after me and were seated first. I asked her nicely why we weren’t being seated and she was just plain rude. Not worth the attitude to come back here.

We had to wait outside until a t least 11:15am with everyone else, since the restaurant doors were locked until then. Once inside, hostess was slow to seat all of us with reservations. We were given the dinner menu and asked our waitress about it, she said it was correct. She had a hard time explaining what we could pick for restaurant week, we ordered and she came back to tell us we had the wrong menu. Gave us brunch menus then took our orders. The appetizer bagel and lox came out with no cream cheese at all, and we had to request it. There was not enough smoked salmon for both sides of the bagel and the bagel was of poor quality. The entrees were sub-par, they used deli meat ham and turkey for dishes which should have used hand carved, and the portions were too big in the dishes we ordered. Wait staff was very slow and non-attentive. The desserts were also very underwhelming and the petit four platter came out with frozen cookies and chocolate so hard it could not be eaten. Will never return here and do not recommend to anyone. Entire staff seemed very disorganized during the brunch service.

This could have been my go to place if not for shutting down.

Had a 12:15 reservation and were seated quickly. Took a long time for waiter to come to the table. Didn’t get appetizer until 1:15 and then entree 20 minutes later. At 1:45 I asked to have our deserts wrapped to go. I don’t know a lot of working people who can have an unexpected 2 hour lunch. Waiter also forgot to bring bread that we ordered. Fortunately he also never charged for it. Will be some time before I go back.

Chicken was fine... nothing to write home about but good food. The trout was over cooked and dry... I mentioned to the wait person and just got a a sort of "Oh... okay" response. Right thing to do was to offer us a gratus meal or at least dessert. No offer... so probably not too excited to go back there.

I appreciate that we can always get a table even without a reservation and the atmosphere and location is perfect. I truly am please with my hot mess dish I order and they always are accommodating to my substitutes. Plus it’s clean and not so loud.

Order the house made ginger beer. Trout stuffed with crab is one of my go-to dishes at Woodward Table. Dessert menu is tempting but I'm always too full to order -- maybe one day.

They’ve gone from “I can’t wait to come back and have that again and try everything else on the menu” to “There’s nothing wrong with this, but I won’t remember what I had after we walk out”. I don’t know what the change is but with all of the other choices in the area, I don’t think we’ll be back.

The music didn’t match the nice meal I was looking forward to and it was blaringly loud. It was on a 90s radio station and the ambience was more sports bar than a nice dining establishment. The waiter was super gracious and had the music volume lowered. The food was really good. Hopefully they will rethink the ambience they are trying to create.
