Nice ending to an afternoon drive through the beautiful countryside. Food was delicious and nicely presented. Muzak was too loud, otherwise nice atmosphere.

Overall very good experience. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Made a reservation and were seated at the "bar" right next to kitchen. OK but with a reservation would liked to have a table and less noise.
Food was outstanding. Took a while for our order for a "slow" time of day. The place was nearly empty when we left.
I will come back but only if I'm in the area visiting wineries again.

Excellent restaurant. I have been wanting to go here for quite sometime. However, the girls kept changing to another restaurant. I finally went with my honey and it was excellent! The service was outstanding. Anyone can remove plates rather than waiting for your specific waiter. One of our pet peeves and they excelled at it. Very friendly Farm to Table.

This was our second visit to the restaurant. Our first visit last year was stellar. The food and service were on point and we were excited to go back.

This trip was not so great. The food arrived cold for both the appetizer and our main dishes. Everything had a smokey flavor profile that was off putting. We were disappointed in the service, as well. It might have just been a rough day for all concerned.

I doubt that we will venture back.

We had at lunch at Ruddick Wood about a year-and-a-half ago and the burgers were fabulous. Juicy and filled with delicious toppings. So, we went for burgers after a day of wine tasting last Saturday and took another couple who had never been there before. The burger is only served in the bar in the evening so we had them there. The meat was dry and overcooked and the patty was small. There was very little on it. The fries were good but we went specifically for the burger and probably won't go back again. Very disappointing, especially since we had told our friends repeatedly how delicious the burgers would be.

Our food was about average and the service was good. However, the restaurant is advertised as more of a pub but attempts to be a fine dining restaurant. The food is expensive and no bread is served while we're waiting for our dinners. Honestly, would it kill you to serve bread to your customers? Is this restaurant a pub or fine dining. Make up your mind. We probably won't go there again.

Great lunch for 8 people!! We requested, and were sat at, their awesome private table, and we had a very nice time for a special occasion. We have been here before a few times, but this was the first time for lunch...we love the way it feels inside, which to me is warm, but industrial and cool. Service is always top-notch, and the food is kind of like comfort-with-a-bit-of-danger!

Disappointing meal on a Saturday night. Decided to stop in after a day touring wine country. Had reservations and got a booth right away. Then waited for a long time for someone to come by and get our order. Once we ordered, I was actually able to drive back to Dundee to pick up a hat I had left at Argyle and then get back before the appetizer was served. Waited another long time for our meal - which was cold when it arrived. It was obvious it had been sitting under the heat lamp for awhile. Thought about sending it back but I didn't want to wait another 1/2 hour. I ordered the lamb and my wife the chicken. Both would probably be good at a serving temp - but mine was so cool, it felt like I was having leftovers out of the fridge. We noticed several tables nearby that were waiting just as long (or longer) - so it wasn't just us. We could have complained but by the time the food arrived, we just wanted to eat and get out of there.

I like R/W very much, but maybe it was due to our group size this time? The service was very slow, and several of the dishes were prepared incorrectly. We ran out of time and couldn't address the errors, which is always unfortunate because then the restaurant doesn't know that they need to fix things. But I've been before and haven't had problems, so maybe it was due to there being 8 of us.

The food was excellent but the service was spotty. Our waiter didn't know he had our table to serve and didn't know the ingredients of one special and at least one menu item. He was apologetic but still didn't pick up his game. I'd give it another try. It could just be a new waiter or one-time glitch.

This was quite possibly the worst experience I have had. The waitress forgot to put our order in which was fine but 30 mins later still no food. It was a little over 1.5 hours until the food was finally ready and we had to get it to go. We both ordered fish which usually doesn’t take super long. When we did get home to eat, it was still warm but wasn’t even that great. I liked the bread, but I can buy that myself. They comped our drinks but does hat make up for the experience? Not really.

The food was decent and the staff was very good. They were especially very good at apologizing. Took 30 minutes to get seated and then a glass of wine. 6 diners, 3 apps come out then it was 15 minutes for the next 3, said they were "out of bowls". We're also out of good wine glasses.

Talked to others and apparently this is common. Food wasn't good enough to overcome the sloppy management and bare, uninvited guest space.

Really great local restaurant in Newberg perfect for dinner after enjoying wine tasting in the valley. Everything is farm to table, meat is butcher in restaurant so everything is fresh and different cuts daily. Even the meats on the charcuterie boards are butcher there. Love the atmosphere and staff was amazing. Dishes are creative. Highly recommend for dinner with friends or a date night

We have dined here at least 5 times. This time the service and the food were not up to the standards from previous visits. I made a reservation for 8 and were promptly seated. Our waitress stood at the very end of the table and I could barely hear her. When she did go to take our orders I was literally yelling across the table to try and ask her about the specials. When the food arrived it came out at 4 different times. We were trying to wait for everyone else at our table to get their food before we ate but when we tasted our food it was warm so we went ahead and started to eat with out our friends getting their food. The waitress was not very warn in nature and at the very end of the evening when we went to pay she asked if there was a problem with our checks but what she forgot was that we had our money out on the table and were just waiting for her to pick them up. IF we come back we will probably just go sit in the bar.

Had a great dinner at Ruddick/Wood while on a 4 day wine tasting vacation.
Located in a brick building on the main drag of Newberg. Nice rustic wood interiors w/ a very relaxed and laid back vibe, can dress very casual. There is a second dining room in the back, with a slightly different menu, but much noisier, and some outside seats next to the parking lot. Recommend the front dining room.

We shared a roasted beet salad, an Heirloom tomato salad w/ roasted peaches, and split a New York steak, with some locally brewed beers. Finished everything on the plates, as it was all fabulous.

Excellent food, good service, good pricing, well worth a visit and we would definitely go back.

I had high hopes for ruddick wood. I dined for lunch with a friend. Our table was sticky and our paper napkins were rumpled like they had been used before. I eat paleo style and found very little on the menu paleo friendly. I opted for the steak sandwich. I was expecting ciabatta bun but got slices of French bread. It was not substantial enough for the steak. With each bite I had to pull, tug, tear and I still couldn't get a bite off. Th steak was not good and much too hard to eat in the form of a sandwich. My friend had the pizza on pita. The pizza would have been much better in a thin pizza crust whole like all the other restaurants offer. Btw, when I ordered my steak sandwich the server asked me if I wanted salad or fries and so I ordered a salad. When we got the bill The salad was three dollars extra. That was NOT cool! She should have told me that before I ordered five pieces of lettuce leaves. We were both very disappointed.

This was my first visit to this restaurant and I look forward to going back. The food was deliciously prepared and beautifully presented. This is the type of restaurant where everything is made from scratch. Be prepared to have a leisurely dining experience of 1 1/2 to 2 hours. All of the wait staff are very friendly and know the menu. The chef, Paul Losch, and his staff create some wonderful seasonal salads and other additions as well as the food on the regular menu.
I recommend this restaurant highly.

When was the last time you ate 'braised sunflowers'? Well, we ordered this unique sounding dish and were delighted with the delicate flavor of the petite sunflower heads that were perfectly seasoned and braised. The board specials as well as the printed menu at R/W reflect seasonal dishes that are both creative and/or traditional and absolutely delicious! The waitstaff are knowledgeable and extremely accommodating which makes dining here even more memorable.
