Love this restaurant. It’s consistently delicious.
PHENOMENAL RESTAURANT, GREAT SERVICE! I appreciate the great food and experience. We come often and enjoy every experience.
Noisy place, but I asked for a quiet table and got one. Lovely staff, attentive but not obtrusive. Best roast chicken in town!
Ohhhh the burgers!! The happy hour is a deal....their amazing burger with a glass of wine...for $15!
Pasquale is the maitre'd - he is very kind and gracious. We asked for a sit down table and were accommodated quickly. Nice lunch of people running the place and serving food and drinks.
We found Wood while looking for a fun restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday near my daughter's Lakeview apartment. All four of us LOVED every bite of our meals -- the food was inventive and delicious. And our server was terrific -- very attentive, funny and delightful. Would highly recommend.
great experience overall, great food and nice service.
We went for Mother’s Day brunch and the whole family loved it! The food was great, the service was good and the ambiance was nice. Highly recommend! I plan on going back to check out the dinner menu!
So I came in early for my reservation, I walked inside and the gentleman who greeted me at the front door was ready to seat me. I told him, my reservation is at 8, as he was ready to seat me. I told him that my date was running a bit late, he kindly replied, that’s no problem you are welcome to have a seat at the bar. I got to the bar, the bar back and bartender were very welcoming and provided me with a menu and a drink list. Some exotic drinks, one with egg white which I will have to try during the night. I asked for my normal, a Moscow mule and the bartender like in any good bar asked what type of vodka I wanted. Tito’s is my thing. Drink was is very delicious. So I decided to write the review from the start to the end. My date was over and hour late, yet the place was crowded but very soothing ambiance, not loud, nice and mellow where when my date did decide to show up, we could still speak. Cocktails are a bit expensive, but they use the best liquor and fresh ingredients, literally I had no issues tipping the bartender who ordered my food and help me suggest the most popular cocktails, one of which had egg white and a stiff bourbon kick, but refreshing, I would have to say that “the rio” drink was the best. The pasta and wild bore! Delicious, overall experience and ambiance.... 4.9 out of 5 as nothing can be perfect, but this place was close to it.
Scallops and “large” pasta overpriced for the portion, however lamb chops good value!
Got sat to a table upon arrival and the place seemed great; however, the server never acknowledged us and even tended to the table next to us without saying a word for the first 15 mins we were sitting there; did not even say “someone will be with you shortly.” We then felt out of place, got up, and left. Told the host no one came to our table and all he said was sorry, then answered a call. Never experienced such terrible service like this anywhere before. Blown away.
The server was terrible. Took forever to get service and didn’t really seem to care. The food was very good but the server really put a damper on our evening.
Food was complex and delicious. Service was weird. Waiter was, I don’t know...shy?...high... awkward? Small menu. Only one small plate and one large plate were veg. Need to do better. Not compelled to come back with such limited options. Cute rooms.
The first time we walked by Wood we almost did not go in. The interior looks more like a bar, and a not particularly attractive one at that. But the appearance is no way reflects the delicious, inventive cuisine the comes from the kitchen. We wanted just about everything on the menu. Some favorites: the steak tartar, a vegetarian dish called Panisse, crab spaghetti, and roast rabbit.
I got the double cheeseburger at Wood earlier this week...and it was REALLY good. I'm a burger snob, comparing everything to Au Cheval but this burger was done really well. I didn't need it to be a "double" - that could have been an option but other than that the size was great, the red onions were grilled to perfection.
One of the few good restaurants in Lakeview. Nice atmosphere. Fun place to eat and people-watch.
We had the best waiter ever...Nicola. He made the evening perfect.
I went for brunch on Saturday. I loved the French omelette -- seriously, i was so much better than I was expecting, although their brunch menu in general was a bit boring. They also didn't offer to refill my coffee for an hour, which was okay, but usually service is a lot more prompt in similar brunch places.
Second time I've had brunch here in the past 6 months, and the food is just mediocre. You can't really mess up scrambled eggs with cheese badly, but the side of potatoes were overdone.
Bon restau, un peu cher, service sympathique... peut pas assez gourmet à notre goût.
Wood is outstanding! If you have never been, what are you waiting for! ;)
Dinner at wood was good! We had the hanger steak and pork shoulder. For desert we had the chocolate crepe brûlée and the lemon cake. Over all the food was good for the cost. The waiter was prompt and the bus guy did don’t wait more than a couple of second before taking your empty glass or plate. Overall the menu is limited for someone with eating restrictions and we would probably not go back when in Chicago. Definitely would recommend to more adventurous eaters and overall it was a great experience.
Wonderful!!! Had an amazing double date with my best friend and her boyfriend. Request to sit at the table at the end of the bar! Kevin was fantastic and hilarious- he made our night!!! While we did spend a lot of money, it was definitely worth it for the awesome drinks and amazing atmosphere. Will definitely be back!
We took 5 friends and had a ball! Everyone loved their food and can I say, "best chicken I ever ate!" I admired the Kentucky Derby poster in the window and they came over and gave me one. Exceptional service and all around great place to have fun and eat. I will go back next time we are in Chicago. Our Chicago friends said they would definitely go back. We ate out at 5 places this past weekend and Wood was voted our favorite. I selected it because my last name is... Wood! And it had a great write-up. Thanks for a fun evening.
Food, service and ambiance are all excellent!!!!!!
Lots of fun, bartenders not as good as the past visits
Great food and awesome ambience and service!
Great service. Good environment. Thanks for making for a good date.
Besides being a fun nicely appointed restaurant, the food is fantastic. The small plate options allow you to try out several dishes. We were a group of five and ordered 4 small plates and 3 large plates. The pasta is fresh and the sauces were fabulous . The beef tartare was amazing. The price point is perfect. A great time was had by all of us.
This was wonderful evening. I do not get a chance to visit since I live in Indianapolis. It was my birthday weekend. Always a treat and Andre was awesome.
I eat here often ---the food and cocktails are always on point---our waiter on the other hand was having a bad night from the start...loads of attitude. I thought it was limited to us until I said something and both tables next to us agreed. Didn't bother to find out his name, but the manager needs to know that he was not friendly at all...and that's all his job is!!! It maybe time to move along!
Creative menu......food was perfect......good service. What more does one need?
This is a great Boystown restaurant. They have a fabulous bar program and their menu is wonderful. Perfect for a date to impress.
A true gem in boystown
Overall, just a solid 4/5. The decor needs an update, but the menu items, service, and quality are always consistent.
The service ruined it.
Excellent food experience. My wife had the sea bass and I had the steak. Both unbelievable.
Will definitely be back here.
We picked the waiters suggestions and loved everything. Great atmosphere and the evening ended with hugs and a plan to return
The burger wasn't that great and the cinnamon rolls were cold as hell. The vibe is okay, but I wasn't thrilled with the food at all. I'm not coming back.
So great! Especially for brunch! Creative takes on classic brunch options.
