    Waiter & food were good. It was the hostess who left a bad taste.... 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 went for Restaurant week brunch with 11am reservation. 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.

    Woodward Table - Permanently ClosedResponded on August 19, 2019I apologize for your experience. That was our last day of operation and we were severely short staffed.

    Food was just okay. Service was a bit better but not exceptional. I got the feeling that they were just going through the motions because the restaurant closes at the end of the month.

    Made the reservation for Restaurant Week and then happened to find out it's closing the end of August. The food was wonderful (I had gnocchi, a house salad and the cobbler). The only downside was the noise level: had to speak with raised voice. This could have been my go to place if not for shutting down.

    Woodward Table has an excellent menu of seafood, comfort food, and classic American food. They were very attentive and they paid close attention to our needs. We went for lunch during restaurant week so the value of our meal was excellent.

    So I usually like Woodward Table, but they clearly couldn’t manage crowd for restaurant week. 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.

    Hmmm... first time at Woodward Table. We had trout and the half chicken. 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.

    Had no service, needed those lighted batons you see on a tarmac to direct planes to get their attention. Overheard the servers say they wish it was their last day but it doesn’t matter because they’re closing in 2 weeks anyways.

    My boyfriend and I love eating here for brunch because he believes they have the best chicken and waffles. 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.

    Parker House rolls are the best -- warm, buttery, and flavorful. The entree salad is delicious and satisfying. 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.

    Took forever for beverages to arrive and they weren’t correct. The website menu didn’t match the menu and worse the one dish didn’t match what was served. We then read in Eater they are closing. Sorry to hear that as our two earlier visits had been excellent.

    Somethings different here of late. I can’t say anything is wrong but the food seems to have lost its magic. 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.

    We went on a Friday night and the restaurant had less than ten guests. 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.
