Woods Restaurant & Bar
Great meal with my dad before a show at the Sony Centre!
Cool place, good food and amazing service. I would recommend it.
Great food and attentive service - the guys are always affable and entertaining! We love it there!
We had amazing service at Woods. The food was delicious and Michael took great care of us. Will be back!
Excellent food and excellent service
We were very happy overall
As usual, it was a lovely evening with great food, friendly efficient staff in a fun environment. Highly recommend this restaurant. It is one of my favourites.
The food was delicious and it was the best customer service that I’ve ever experienced!
Delicious food! Fabulous service! Fantastic Dighby Scallops appetizer . We were delighted to be served a welcome sparkling wine, a Chef’s welcome chilled gazpacho and a taste of Reisling with our scallops. An excellent place for a special night out in Toronto
The quality of service is simply outstanding. While the food is great, the service, little details, etc made the dining experience simply perfect!
So much flavour. I would visit again, but will take wine. The drinks had a too strong taste for my opinion
One of the best experiences I have ever had! The food and service was beyond incredible! Thank you very much!!!
Excellent food, service and all Canadian! Locally sourced where possible and a good selection of spirits. Highly recommend.
Amazing waiter. Great service. Amazing food. Best choice
Amazing food, absolute flavour sensations all the way through. Scallops, ceviche, duck and wild boar all outstanding.
Service was on point too, cannot recommend highly enough.
Awesome as always! Thank-you! Kudos to all of the staff.
Comfortable setting, very good food and excellent service. I'd go back tomorrow.
Amazing service! Had a birthday there and they made us feel so special :)
Professional, knowledgeable staff, food well presented, nice atmosphere.
The food was amazing and the service second to none. We will come back!
Stylish but relaxed spot with tasty and artfully presented food. Service was friendly, well choreographed, and attentive
It was a business dinner for two, on a quiet evening. We were in no rush, but service still took a long time to get going. The menu is interesting and carefully crafted, but we found that the dishes we tried seemed to be trying too hard to be clever and simple. Example: foie gras served on a very nicely toasted slice of bread: but the toast quickly becomes soggy and starts to dilute the foie ... other dishes with items "artfully" scattered on the plate tended to say "disorderly snack" rather than "composed meal". Wine service was also a little odd in that the wine we ordered (a 2007 Brunello) was off. We should have said so immediately, but instead hoped it would improve. Eventually a nice man "nosed" it and said "Yes of course, wine of that age has sometimes lost all its character" ... and that was that.
There were also highlights. I can't recommend their sour dough bread enough; it is first rate. The service was generally friendly and welcoming, with little extras offered along the way. I suspect we just had a series of unlucky breaks. I'd certainly go back to give the kitchen another go.
Tuna was over cooked too much sesame
Outstanding canadian food, decoration and service in a refined ambiance.
I REALLY ENJOYED MY DINNER. IT WAS VERY GOOD. THE WAITERS WERE FABULOUS! I JUST HAVE ONE COMPLAINT. THE WASHROOMS WEREN'T VERY CLEAN.
This place is like a hidden gem! Tucked in on a street within walking distance from the Eatons Centre.
Food: Amazing! The elk was cooked to perfection! Most (if not all) of their food is sourced locally and you can taste the freshness and quality in their food. My friend's oysters (Fanny Bay) were fresh, the foie gras was not too heavy and tuna was cooked perfectly as well. Dessert was wonderful too! Very smooth and not too sweet chocolate mousse. Presentation of the food was great and well balanced!
Service: Amazing! Our server was very friendly, very knowledgable about the menu and the food, kept coming back to check up on us and appeared at perfect timings to clear our plates and place the next dish.
Ambience: like you're in the woods and enjoying a wonderful meal with your companion(s). Noise level was moderate. Wherever you're sitting, you get a woodland atmosphere.
Definitely coming back and have told my friends about this place!
Bathroom was dirty, water inside and outside the bathroom on the floor a bucket outside the bathroom with water. Food was ok but nothing special for the price. Little portions.
The service was pleasant and attentive. The scallops were incredible and the wine list was nice. Unfortunately the rest of the food was lacking. The atmosphere was lovely, but the noise made conversation challenging.
Lisa was lovely.
Had a delicious dinner with top notch service. Definitely recommend for visitors looking for a Canadian restaurant option. Also near the theatre district.
My fiance & I treated ourselves to a nice dinner here. The food was really good & I loved the french cognac martini, the vibe is nice, & the service was excellent. They really went above & beyond.
Love the interior and the food and service are outstanding!
Our waiter was amazing. His energy was great, he put us instantly at ease.
My husband and I are writing this review the morning after visiting this restaurant with our son and the only rating that is not perfect is noise level. The restaurant is a bit loud but lively and cozy and I loved the “Woods” theme throughout. Our waiter offered excellent suggestions from wine to dessert, never hovered, and made us feel well cared for. We got the beet salad, scallop appetizer, elk (a tiche dry for me), duck, and housemade linguine with shiitake mushrooms and tenderloin (this was my entree and I’m still dreaming about it). Our meal was well paced, except our wine glasses were nearly empty at the start of our entrees but our waiter topped off our glasses from the house bottle. An excellent evening and worth every penny!
It was our first time in Toronto and we picked Woods Restaurant for our nice dinner out. We were blown away by the service, the attention to details, the “extras”, and the quality of the food. One of the best dining experiences our family has ever had! Thank you to the chef and staff for extending us a warm Canadian welcome and for providing us with a meal we will long remember.
Excellent food and service! Really enjoyed the menu options. Highly recommend!
The service and the food were fantastic. Very well taken care of when our food took a few minutes extra to get to us. Totally unexpected and not needed. There wasn't that much of a delay, at all
Simply delicious! Lovely ambiance, perfectly prepared food, and knowledgeable wait staff.
Food was good, just good. Part of the meat that I ordered tasted a bit freezer burnt. For a restaurant at this high level, the meat should not taste as if it was found at the bottom of the freezer. It was just a small part of it, that gave me this impression, but it was my first bite.
I booked this restaurant by blind chance. I had just gotten my first job out of school (and paycheck) so I wanted to go somewhere different with my girlfriend. I scrolled through OpenTable and just happened to find an empty reservation for the time I needed.
What a fantastic find! The staff were amazing from the minute we arrived to the minute we left, the food was delicious, and the setting was incredibly comfortable. I would love to go back again!
