We love the food at Wildwood! Charming avenues restaurant. Small inside, but great with outdoor patio. Service has always been the one caveat. Hostess seems annoyed to have you there. Very unfriendly. Servers are hit and miss. Food is exceptional! Love the burrata salad, croquettes and mushroom toast. Portions are very generous as well as delicious. Fried chicken, chicken hash and pork belly are our go to’s! Usually too full to have dessert, but we tried the beignets and were happy we did! We look forward to our next meal there!

The hostess, our server & the sommelier were wonderful!!!! We celebrated a big anniversary @ Trio, & we were seated a romantic table outside per our request (the best outdoor seating around). We brought an older bottle of wine, the year we were married, & they treated us & the wine perfectly. The food was delicious!!! Thank you!!!

The head hostess was incredibly rude and condescending so it ruined our whole vibe. Otherwise it would have been a lovely evening with family.

Alex, our server, was so kind, patient and hard working for us and all of his tables! We loved the ability to create your own breakfast plate and the prices were very very reasonable. We will definitely go back there to try dinner food and different cocktails!

The food was very good. Our server Brandon was great. The only issue we had was our main course was ready before our appetizer by quite a bit. Brandon apologized several times, but this was very poor planning on whoever was doing the cooking. We felt rushed because of this. If the courses had come out as planned I would have had another drink. Overall I'd go back but hopefully they'll get their timing better next time.
