Contemporary American
From the kitchen to the bar, everything we serve is defined by a passion for exploring unique flavor combinations. Wood is more than a name: our wood-fired oven is at the heart of it all, enhancing a dynamic menu of small-plate, American fare, made with the peak midwest farm produce each season has to offer. Though the dishes regularly change, they are defined by a few constants: meat is butchered in-house from humanely-raised animals; vegetables are drawn from local family farms; and all pastas and sausages are freshly made.

As a reminder, if you are dining in with us, everyone five and older must now show proof of vaccination—adults must also present a valid ID. Masks are mandatory for all individuals 2 years and older, and we ask that you please wear a mask anytime you are not eating or drinking at your table. We appreciate your understanding.

    Having dined at Wood many times, I appreciate the creativity of the chef’s interesting variety of dishes that change with the season, as well as new interpretations of old favorites. Plating is visually appealing with many components made from scratch. In-house butchering of local farm-raised animals, local seasonal farm produce, and fresh made pasta. The service is gracious and professional in a cosy and warm setting.

    Wood continues to be an excellent dining choice. The creativity of the dishes, quality, and price point are spot on. Since the menu changes on a structured basis, returning to dine allows anyone to choose from the cornerstone dishes, yet explore the new creations. Great place which appeals to sophisticated foodies!

    Scott was my server. He was overall good, but our first experience became a topic of a conversation, on my first date. He made me question my choice of place. Later on it all worked out, but overall experience was below expectations for this spot.

    Casual with Michelin quality food Dinner at Wood on an early Friday night was delightful. We shared 3 small plates and 3 large plates. The food is casual yet Michelin quality, the service attentive and friendly. Chicken & the Egg: melt-in-you-mouth celebration of chicken, hollandaise light and bright. Quail: tender with balsamic char & bright crunch of Asian pear. Salmon Crudo: fresh, light, clean flavors. Radiatore al Formaggio: best Mac & cheese ever, aged Gouda, smoky porky bites, sweetness of tomato confit. Pork Duo: a refined choucroute—pork belly with crispy skin had us swooning, roast pork loin, light and tender, house-made sauerkraut, crunchy and fresh with caraway. Lamb Wellington: tasted like Christmas from juniper in the lamb sausage, lamb perfectly tender, pastry crispy and golden, honey nut squash, flavorful and tender. Food was perfectly seasoned—left feeling “wowed”

    As always, Wood never disappoints. Our server Nick was great, Max was great on making sure we had everything we need table-wise, and the table visits from Matthew are always appreciated. The surprise visit from Tuna, was a perk. If I had one comment, and with the caveat that Friday's dinner service was 3 turns busy, but the kitchen seemed challenged and in the weeds in terms of getting the orders out in a timely manner. It took them over an hour to get out a soup and app. and one main. (I'm kinda quoting Nick here, but he is correct). Do we mind that much? Probably not, because Wood is still a great restaurant and our fave neighborhood hang, and Matt did his best to get food arriving. But I feel like if your friends can't tell ya what ya need to hear, well, you will end up hearing from people with no understanding or care for the establishment. Thanks as always, for a great evening. We are & remain, loyal & loving guests, and feel lucky that Wood is our neighborhood restaurant.

    My fiancé and I have enjoyed going to Wood for a long time. Although the food was good, the service was awful. Aside from being incredibly slow, it was also incorrect. My food was delivered to the table as it was ordered, but my fiancé’s was not delivered at the same time. When it did, it wasn’t what was ordered. By the time his food finally arrived, mine was stone cold. We were laughing about it because we just couldn’t believe what was happening. The manager came to the table to offer a half hearted apology. Our table want the only only one. The couple sitting next to us had similar service issues, and when they asked to speak with the manager, he made excuses, and blamed the poor service on a couple of difficult tables. We will never go back.

    The more times I go to Wood, the more often it becomes a toss up of a worthwhile experience. This time, not so much. The meal took way too long to deliver for something so simple, was not accurately described or cooked, and the final amount was absolutely too much.

    Made a reservation for myself and 2 friends. We ordered within about 15 minutes of being seated and then waited more than an hour for our food. When we finally asked about it, the manager essentially told us he did not know when our food would be ready and there was nothing else he could offer us. We waisted almost 2 hours of our evening and were not able to get in to another nice restaurant given it was a Saturday. Incredibly frustrating.

    They sat us down and we waited over two and half hours for our food The manager never spoke to any of the tables that were waiting for food even after we requested to speak to them - it was clear that the kitchen was having trouble and the restaurant kept seating tables - we noticed several disgruntled customers as well We’ve been here before and always find the food to be delicious but outrageous wait times We won’t be back after this horrible experience abd we had brought friends to experience the restaurant and we were super embarrassed by what happened Our food was comped but the experience was dreadful Work on this Wood staff - it’s not ok to treat patrons the way you did

    Brunch was fine, nothing extraordinary. I think they used to have more unique offerings and now I don’t know that it’s worth the price. Service was friendly and attentive. I didn’t appreciate that my 2nd mimosa was brought in a smaller glass bc I asked for slightly less juice - that seems very cheap and petty for such a nice place.
