Love it every time I go to Wood!
It’s one of my favorite places!
We booked a 2:45 reservation NOT knowing it was the last one of the day and they closed at 3p. We were early by 2 minutes. The service was awful. They were short with us, rushed us to order, did not wear masks and hovered over us. I had to order for my husband and we could only get one drink (because they were closing) and they were out of food that we wanted to order. The food for the price was mediocre and the woman at the table next to us outside was coughing and sneezing and no one had on masks. It was my daughters 21st birthday and we told them five times and they finally brought out a bowl of ice cream - that was nasty - cucumber or something. It was suppose to be a special occasion and it was a disaster. Our first meal out in 18 months because of the pandemic and they were rude, forced us to order within 5 minutes and were not attentive. They also did not wear masks and leaned over us at the table. We had to put on our masks and try to eat under the masks. Terrible!
Colin was excellent
Food is consistently good! Great service and the overall experience was spot on!
Dinner with family….
Great place for awesome food.
Excellent food and service…
Had the pasta, steak, tar tar, cheese plate and salmon….
Best happy hour in town! Always a pleasure.
Consistently delicious food!
Awesome experience - fantastic food. Learned they have a new chef and he’s making all the difference.
I love Wood. I’ve been for dinner and cocktails but never brunch until this past weekend. Overall, it was okay to good at best but with all the other brunch options abound the city I would choose to brunch elsewhere.
Service was great but it took roughly an hour (maybe 50 minutes) from the time we ordered our food to the time and it arrived at the table which seems longer than usual and while there were another of other patrons it wasn’t packed and there was at least one table that ordered after us that received their food before us.
As for the food, I enjoyed. It was good but not incredible. I shared the black truffle omelette and fois gras french toast.
Truffles are quite aromatic and flavorful but neither the aroma or taste was where it should’ve been in my opinion. The salad that accompanied the omelette was delicious and I loved the dressing very much. I could’ve eaten a plate of that salad.
As for the French toast, were given the impression that it would be a hearty serving (plenty to share) but that was not the case. It was a zucchini bread French toast which was delicious but it was two small slices roughly 1”x1”x3” with some Fois Gras and 4 pieces of zuchinni tempura. I personally would add at least two more slices of the zucchini French toast and eliminate the zucchini tempura altogether. It didn’t really go with the dish even though I get that it was zucchini and zucchini. Just not a good combination to have the tempura and the French toast. I’d rather have more French toast and actually enjoy the meal.
While waiting for my guest to arrive I also ordered the sourdough bread with cinnamon honey butter and strawberry compote. I enjoyed it. The bread was good. I was starving at the time though. The bread was a little salty but I didn’t mind it.
I will definitely return to wood but I’ll stick to dinner and cocktails.
Went to brunch at Wood, it was our first time there, and very pleasantly surprised. Food was great (had the blintzes with seasonal fruit and honey - yum!). The service was very attentive, and loved our server's dry sense of humor. We'll be going back for brunch and it's on our list to try it for dinner. Two thumbs up!
Great meal and would recommend.
Late dinner after a great event we were hungry and my first thought was Wood. I reserved a table but changed my mind when we saw our favorite bartender Linda. The Double cheese burger fries and beer are the best in Chicago. We could do this everyday if it was possible it’s delicious. No pictures of the cheeseburger bcz we ate fast lol
Wood was a great spot for brunch! Cute atmosphere, lots of diversity in the patrons. Great view, ability to talk and carry on a conversation and great location!
Wood is a gorgeous place, however we think that there were kitchen issues. The waiter alluded to it being short staffed. One of our entrees was not great, the other was fine. Appetizer was delicious. Dessert was okay. That being said, I would still go back because enough things went right to make the experience enjoyable.
Our waiter was excellent. The food was delicious and we had a great time!
One of my favorite restaurants on the boystown strip in lakeview. Always an outstanding experience from the customer service to the food! Great for date nights, friendly get togethers and specialty cocktails! I personally suggest approaching their menu like tapas and exploring!
Totally understated! Food was outstanding!
Great please to eat. Menu rotates and always something delish on there! Great place, wine was incredible and server was very polite and friendly
I thought it was a pizza place honestly but I was surprised by the sophisticated food and drink options. will be eating here again soon
Excellent food. Great service! I am coming back very soon. A little noisy.
Understanding it was their first day back servicing sunday brunch, we still had a mediocre experience at wood this past weekend. Food took over 30 minutes to arrive, one order was wrong and the menu was very limited/underwhelming.
Collin was our server. He was excellent. Management is always there to make sure the guest has a top-notch experience as well. A great place to be.
Wonderful service and delicious food! Fairly expensive, but for such a lovely experience I think it’s worth it. Not too crowded - we were seated outdoors off to the side.
Food was great and creatively done. The short rib in pho broth was excellent and was a dish that makes you want to come back. Our waiter Scott and support staff were knowledgeable, responsive and friendly
Terrific service from start to finish. The food was simply outstanding even for what we’ve come to expect from the Wood kitchen. Our waiter John and roving ambassador Scott made us feel welcome with friendly, fun but professional service. Can’t wait to get back!
We’ve known about Wood for years, but never ventured in. What a mistake!
Everything from the way we were welcomed up and through our departure was delightful.
We will back soon!
I love Wood!
New favorite restaurant! Kudos to the Chef and Jeremiah! Food was exceptional— creative (but not creativity without purpose), drinks were fantastic, and service once Jeremiah stepped in was fabulous. The space is minimalist but warm and inviting. The staff was nice,knowledgeable and very professional. They knew the menu, had great recommendations, and overall were definitely a notch above most we encounter.
To Jeremiah (the general manager), thank you for attending to our table and turning things around to make it a very memorable experience for my out-of-town family! You’re a great role model and ambassador for Wood. I will definitely be back and share with others.
Ordered 5 small plates to share between two of us. Easily one of the best meals I've had at any restaurant regardless of price. Highly recommend.
Service was good until food came out then rarely saw our server. Ordered a drink that never came. Ordered a drink again and took a while which the server apologized about.
Great service. Staff is so friendly. You feel like your at home
The food here is always really good and it’s a great environment, but we service issues every time we eat here, which is a shame because we love it. The staff are wonderful and friendly but drinks were forgotten, all five of the appetizers came out over 30 minutes meaning some people had completely finished before the others started and again, 3 of the mains arrived well before the other two. Such a shame because we love this place, the kitchen just needs to step up a bit.
First time eating there and we will certainly go back. We had the steak tartare, chicken Milanese, steak dinner and everything was delicious! The cocktails were also fabulous! Our waiter was so attentive. Overall, a great experience.
Incredible food, especially when considering the price!
Great food and relaxed atmosphere, would recommend!
Food and drinks were good. Very overpriced. $17 for gin with one of those big ice cubes taking up the whole whiskey glass. Our server was rude and offered no solutions to menu items that they were out of. He knew we had a birthday at the table and offered no dessert or even asked us to see a menu. He argued with my friend about the drink he served her. Just inconsiderate.
Dined at Wood for years, but first time back since Covid. We ate a series of starters as courses. The beef tartare was really fantastic. Our server Scott didn't rush us, and really made it a great experience.
The food is so creative and always farm driven Our waiter was very knowledgeable
and his selections were great. Very unusual grilled cucumbers that were delicious
I would recommend it to anyone who loves food and appreciates creative combonations
