The service was outstanding, and the food was fresh and good. The salmon was the best I have ever had, including the Pacific Northwest.
I'm truly hoping this was a one-off situation. I suggested this place for my friend's birthday after having a fantastic brunch last year. The service was slow, the waiter had an attitude, my friends ordered specifics (eggs over hard) and they had to send them back. My dish was good but disappointed that the service was so off today.
Good food and service. Quiet enough to talk !
Location and food were excellent. Waitstaff were pleasant and accommodating. Lighting was a bit too dim. However, the overall experience was delightful.
Efficient and helpful service. Delicious food ( had the crab cake BLT). High noise level enabled the closely arranged tables to still have a sense of privacy.
Will come back
First time visiting Woodward Table. Everyone was incredibly friendly. Our waiter was well versed on menu selections. It's a little pricey for lunch. But I will go back.
The food was good, but the service was very slow. We had two different servers. The first did not take our food order for over 20 minutes and did not bring all the drinks that we ordered. We then asked another server to take our food order. The servers took too long to remove plates after we had finished our appetizers and main courses. For a two-course meal we were at the restaurant for over 1.5 hours. Too long.
The food and service was excellent. I just deducted one start bc the wine wasn’t good. The selection (although extensive) was so-so, but I settled for a Malbec. For a Malbec, it was incredibly bland, so it just did nothing for my meal. The meal was great without it, just looking for that extra something a good wine can do. Will definitely go back, will just skip ordering wine.
Great food, service and atmosphere. Will be back next time I'm in DC.
Great food, quiet enough for a serious business discussion. Service friendly and efficient.
It was a great value when we went for Restaurant Week -- it softened the blow of a $17.50 martini and $16.00 Manhattan (with the "bar" bourbon" -- but it would have felt expensive were the regular prices in effect. The mussels were an extremely good appetizer, the entrees were also very good (lamb shank was terrific) -- and the desserts outstanding across the board (chocolate mousse and bourbon cake). Service was only so-so -- as compared with the previous night when our daughter went with a part of 9 and it took over 3 1/2 hours for dinner. The large party next to us looked a bit impatient, so maybe the lesson is to be careful if going with a large party.
Meat and cheese plate great
We went to Woodward Table for DC Restaurant Week brunch, and it was delicious! I had the Hot Mess and the she-crab soup, and my mother had the chicken and waffles. Everything was great, and I'm definitely going to go back!
Sunday Brunch (last day of restaurant week) was packed. We (5) were seated in a narrow party room with a party of 18 because none of the tables/booths seat more than 4. We asked to be reseated because the party was so loud that we couldn’t hear. The hostess said she would as soon as she could find one but never returned.
For the first hour and twenty minutes we were only served coffee. Our waiter was only concerned about his large table of 18. We then asked why our soup and/or salad couldn’t be served. How long does it take to bring that to the table? After that was finally served, we waited another half an hour with no attention from our waiter. One of our guests got up to find a manager who said he would take care of us in seconds. Again we sat. He returned to tell us he put in our “ticket.” We had been there now for two hours. About fifteen minutes later the entrees arrived. Food was delicious! The manager then told me, he took care of the charges, however, we were given a bill for two of the five meals. Weekdays we eat there and the food and service are very good.
Food was fantastic! Service was slow.. which was ok, but noticed by everyone at our table. Also, the table next to us was SUPER LOUD. We had to yell to talk to each other at our own table..
Overall, excellent food, though!! and so much of it!
Visited for the Restaurant Week brunch menu. We visit Woodward Table two or three times a year because the food is always great. I think they were a little short-staffed on this particular visit but that won't keep us from visiting again.
Had a fabulous meal during Restaurant week, service was excellent and food delicious.
The dinner menu at the restaurant did not match the menu that was available on their website.
The food was good, solid brunch fare which we enjoyed. The physical space is too dark for my liking. If I found myself in that part of town again I would certainly think of Woodward Table as a reasonable option for a meal.
Great atmosphere, nice sized food portions, and service was good.
The food and service are always amazing! The ambience is great and the bartenders are awesome, too!
Went to Woodward Table with friends for restaurant week. The food was excellent especially the She-Crab soup it had a lot of lump crabmeat. I would definitely go back.
Lovely she crab soup
Great meal, quick service, full meals sizes. Fantastic taste. Bread was incredible!
She got the Ahi Poke, Duck, and apple pie.
I got she-crab soup, short rib, and banana bourbon cake.
Best Restaurant Week deal in town! This restaurant delivers a great dining experience every time.
Restaurant Week Deal for Brunch is the BEST! I loved the amazing 3 course meal we were served.
My friend and I went to WT for restaurant week brunch after I'd heard rave reviews from colleagues. I was pretty disappointed from the start. We were seated at a booth that was damaged and taped up with black duct tape (I noticed other booths were also beat up). Our server was clearly hung over (maybe still drunk) and could barely form a sentence. My coffee tasted like soap. The waiter brought a fresh cup, which also tasted like soap. We ordered a pastry platter which had a good range of sweet pastries with butter, honey, and jelly. The pastries were good but on the very sweet side. For appetizers I had a fruit parfait (beautiful, delicious, not too sweet, good diversity of fruit) and my friend had fish which he liked. For entrees my friend ordered steak and egg. He loved the purple butter on top of the steak which he said brought out the flavor. I opted for cauliflower steak with grapes, carrots, and grains. The sauce and vegetables were delicious but the cauliflower itself was dry and there wasn't enough sauce to cover it. Desserts were beautiful. Ice cream came on an artistic block of ice, lemon meringue was a vision and the right amount of sour.
All and all, WT is pricey. I think their meat dishes might be worth the money, I'd go elsewhere for vegetation options.
Not my first time at Woodward table but went there after the Women's March19 and it was busy - our order got forgotten or messed up somehow but luckily we were sitting beside the open kitchen and the lady overseeing the movement of food quickly rectified for us - lunch was Souther 24 hour salad (no bacon) and I think the house salad with a side of smashed fingerling garlicky potatoes - all fine.
Restaurant week provides a great price for normally expensive food. Great value!
Amazing food and service!
Delicious food. A range of options on the menu. Very sophisticated atmosphere. Extremely attentive staff in-service.
I went there for restaurant week and had a nice dining experience. The food was excellent, including the plating. I dined with two of my friends. We all ordered different dishes, and everyone thought the food was excellent. Service was friendly but slow, so that was the only downside. Overall I would recommend this restaurant.
Waiter was AWESOME!
Some very loud Republicans at the bar!
There were not enough options on the menu. The drink menu as well was not impressive.
Lovely - Delicious - Good Service - Fairly Priced
It was a horrible experience. Terrible service and terrible food.
Fabulous dining experience. Service was great. Food was next level. Chef John Is amazing!
The fried chicken had to be sent back as it seemed to be a week old. Both my husband and son ordered it and it came to the table looking like a fried Cornish hen. The Mac and cheese sides were amazing. The bench seat I sat on was taped with duct tape. My salad and my daughter’s pizza were good.
Trying to find something good, but casual while walking around DC. Ended up at Woodward Table, because the menu on Open Table listed pizza. IT IS NOT A PIZZA PLACE, even though their pizza was delicious and generous. I felt like we were a nuisance for just ordering pizza... By the first waiter that was helping us. A second server took over and was much more friendly and welcoming.
Everything was excellent! The food was fabulous and the service attentive!
