Always my favorite restaurant in Lakeview. I am almost never off on a Saturday night, and went here on a date (ST Patricks day :-( ) So restaurant was extremely busy. But we still had a very nice dinner and I will always return when I want a nice meal and a nice cocktail .
Food was terrible. Had the pork chop and it was so tough I could hardly chew it. I should have returned it. I had to ask for a steak knife as one didn’t arrive with the meal. Some kind of pickled root vegetables were under the pork and they were so acidic to be assaulting. My husband’s fish was flavorless. And these are not cheap meals. Great space overall but the bad food was very disappointing.
$17 for a half portion of pasta seems really high. Good food though.
Been several times - this was one of the poorer experiences. Food service very slow - kitchen issue notvtbe waiter and there weee only 3 or 4 other tables. I have been on nights when it’s full and the speed of service has been way better.
I will still return but I was disappointed this time.
Wood has always been a favorite place to eat in boys town. Service is always good. Drinks amazing, but this trip fell short. Food was just not up to par.
Our experience was so good on Friday night, we came back on Saturday with another group of friends.
The quality of food and service was absolutely perfect - an ideal site for a friend's birthday celebration.
Coffee Crémé Bruleè is a dessert worth while trying.
Great service and food!
It was a wonderful time as always at Wood. Great Food-Great Service-Nice Ambience. I would return
I have been a regular at Wood since it opened in Lakeview in 2012 and frequent it as often as I can. The management, wait- and kitchen-staff not only meet but most often exceeds my expectations for good quality and well prepared food, beverage and service. They go the extra mile to meet my dietary meeds and most often are agreeable to the substitutions or other modifications to my entrees. Their Caesar Salad with anchovies is very well balanced (dressing to Romaine) and one of the best in Chicago. When available, the grilled sturgeon, cassoulet and short ribs of beef are always great entree selections and my favorites.
Wood is just a phenomenal restaurant with amazing food. Every time we go there we fall in love with it agin. It is just great.
Beautiful decor and fun well crafted cocktails. Food and service were excellent.
Fun, energetic, and delicious with excellent cocktails and service. Ask for Nick! He was awesome!
Great food. Terrible wine by the glass, Goofy desserts, Great service, terrible coffees.
Can't understand what the meal is so good and the coffee and desserts so awful.
BUT - the small and large plates were just delicious. Dink ahead of time, and skip dessert.
This is the second time we have been to Woods. Once for dinner, once for brunch. First the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful from the minute you walk in the door. The menu is varied and interesting, but most importantly delicious. Great cocktails. very fun relaxing place. They honor reservation with no problem, and everyone in the restaurant seem to be having fun
Amazing meal all around. Every dish was better than the last. 10/10 dining experience.
Everything was fantastic. We will definitely go back.
Service needs some work. It's almost pointless to make a reservation, you still have to wait 20+ minutes. Servers/bartenders have too much attitude.
Unfortunately this low rating is based on two of the three dishes we tried. The first dish, the beef tartare, was amazing! I could eat that every day and be happy. The next two not so much. The scallops were bland, and tasted like they had sat out for an hour before serving. We also had the tagliatelle, which we sent back the first time because it was freezing, like it had literally been pulled from a fridge. The second try for it was much warmer, but then the pasta was severely undercooked.
The ambiance was great. Our server was very nice. He had good wine recommendations. But we can't justify going back because the food was just not up to par.
The service was just fair and the entrees were not hot when they came to the table.
great food and ambiance but some of the customer service wavers. we were told one thing about corkage fee ($20) and then charged $25 without an apology. some mix up in our order but nothing enough to prevent a return visit.
Great food, kind service and the restaurant weekend menu was delicious.
This place always comes through for an excellent night. Offering the most unique cocktails (try "the root of the problem") and the best, most well-balanced food in the Lincoln Park/Lakeview area, you can't go wrong with Wood. They have a seasonal menu but if you get the chance, try the cassoulet! Excellent service and an inviting atmosphere.
Everyone who interacted with us was pleasant and attentive. As a diner with food allergies, I particularly appreciated the care with which my concern was conveyed to the kitchen. We enjoyed the Restaurant Week prix fixe menu. Every item was clever, well portioned, and delicious. My husband was very pleased with his birthday dinner, and we would certainly return and recommend Wood to others.
Great brunch spot! Came with friends and we were not disappointed.
excellent dining experience! Every dish was outstanding with wonderful flavors and beautiful presentation. I will definitely go back.
Thank you for the wonderful meal and the restaurant week value was a great way to try out the restaurant.
Great place, food and service
By far the best restaurant in the neighborhood. Don’t miss the scallop appetizer or the duck breast. The cassoulet is rich and delicious comfort food as well. Menu changes seasonally which is nice. Great to see something other than just a bar on this part of Halsted.
Pre theater dinner before show at Vic. Fun not too load Delicious. Good service. Portions but small.
Patrick was amazing as well as the food!
This place was amazing! Beautiful decor, fantastic service and the food was to die for! Can't wait to go back :D Will tell everyone about this place.
all of the staff was friendly and helpful and the food was really good. The cocktails were delicious.
Great food, a little pricey
Great food and drinks!
It was awesome and the staff was great. Took my friend for her birthday and we both really enjoyed it.
It was a great way to start the NYE celebrations!
NYE preset menu was DELICIOUS and the wine pairings were Phenomenal!
The staff was quite friendly and had genuine smiles. I will definitely be back.
I had heard good things about Wood and the reviews were positive and the service, food and atmosphere all exceeded my already raised expectations. Explore the specialty drinks and starters - public transportation gets you very close. We'll definitely be going back.
