Always a great spot to be! Excellent raw beef so excited to see that option on the menu!
Staff very helpful and interested in friends there for the first time. Service Exceptional!!
The ambiance and the farm to table aesthetic is second to none in Baltimore. The food was innovative and incredibly fresh but, frankly, not very good. The crab soup we had was exceptionally salty and my dirty martini that was made dirty with pickle juice (per the house) instead of olive juice tasted like vodka with tequila in it. Cool experience but for the price I expected better.
It was a mommy/daughter date night so we enjoyed being together without the tugging of her little one. Alway enjoy the food and that fact that we can walk to the kitchen from home. Living in the neighborhood Woodberry Kitchen is a real plus.
Outstanding food and excellent service, as it always is at Woodberry Kitchen.
One of the best meals I have ever had. Exceptional!
We were here for a birthday dinner. Service was excellent as always. Pacing was perfect. We started with the Lancaster popcorn, minus the (too spicy for me) fish pepper. Spouse had a mojito ($13) which was quite strong but very delicious. I had a Time after Thyme non- alcoholic drink ($5), a lovely combination of flavors enhanced by the fragrance of the thyme sprig. The daily bread & butter were delicious as always. Then spouse enjoyed the chilled asparagus soup which was beautifully presented. For his entree he had blackened catfish with heirloom grits & he enjoyed that thoroughly. I had the sausage stuffed rabbit which came as 2 rounds which appeared to have a thin layer of rabbit meat around the sausage (which may have also been rabbit) & came with ricotta dumplings, (gnocchi) roasted baby turnips, fava beans, mustard dressing. The warm mustard dressing was outstanding! I wish I had substituted the heirloom grits for the bland ricotta dumplings. For dessert we were treated to a free scoop of fresh cream ice cream on a big platter with birthday wishes written in chocolate & a birthday candle (but thankfully, no singing or fuss). We shared the rhubarb tart which was described on the menu as: Honey poached rhubarb, buckwheat shortbread, buttermilk cream, rhubarb sorbet. I was very disappointed in this $11 dessert. The rhubarb seemed as if it was raw rather than poached. I only had about 2 bites & I love rhubarb. The rhubarb sorbet with it was fabulous. I really dislike that desserts have gotten so expensive in restaurants but am willing to splurge if it is truly something spectacular. This fell far short of spectacular or even good in my opinion. Very disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber. You can eat less expensively here if you stick to flatbreads and/or maybe a soup or salad. It's definitely a special occasion restaurant in my opinion. Don't miss the rest rooms which are wallpapered with pages from Gourmet magazine.
Always good, but always very noisy. Woodberry Kitchen is consistently good, and known for its Farm to Table offerings, which are very fresh and interesting. The downside is that it's pricey AND noisy. I am not a fan of that combination--if I go to a pricey restaurant, I prefer it to be quiet enough to have a conversation with my fellow guests at my table. I found it difficult to hear our conversation due to the extreme ambient noise. My friend had a gift card for this restaurant, which is why we went there, but if it were not for the gift card we probably would have opted for a different restaurant. Service was fairly good, but our waiter kept pushing us to order our entire meal when I had noted in my reservation that we wanted a quieter place to talk and catch up after some difficult life changes had occurred in our lives. He was very friendly and nice but I found it annoying that he kept coming back and saying that next time he wanted to take our 'entire order' as if we were keeping him from something. I left him a $25 tip in a $127 bill which should have compensated him for his time, but the pressure was disconcerting. On a more positive note, I had a gift for my friend and the hostess staff was kind enough to hold onto it and then bring it upstairs to our table once we were seated. I really appreciated their service-oriented attitude!
The food was exepctional and the service matched. The duck soup is the best duck preparation I ever had. Amazing.
I am in love with this place. My husband and I shared a few starters and two entrees.
Fantastic First Visit. Our waiter Livingston was on point!
Good food, service was just okay and had a reservation for 1:30 and wasn't seated until 1:50.
Brunch was a miss. Food was delayed and came out cold. Service was friendly but spotty with missed details such as putting in a beverage order and replacing dropped silverware.
Food was a bit uneven and was slow to come to the table. Service was good, but again the food was a bit skimpy and ineven
Overall, pretty disappointing. The noise level was terrible. Tables were too close together. The food was ranged from average to good, nothing was outstanding. Our waiter was friendly and we had no complaints about him. Unfortunately, I don’t think we will return.
I think the word that best describes Woodberry Kitchen is hospitality. From the moment we arrived at the valet to the moment we left, we were treated as one would treat special guests in their home. There is a warmth to Woodberry Kitchen that is missing from many dining experiences today. Our server, Aurora, was friendly and attentive. She provided excellent guidance when asked for some help in choosing dishes. The sommelier was also very helpful and approachable. Of course none of this would matter if the food wasn’t also excellent. Every dish was a treat. Some favorites from the evening were the Roll with the Punches (cocktail), Butcher Plate (appetizer), Cast Iron Chicken and Biscuit, and the New York Strip with au gratin potatoes. We concluded the meal with a dessert wine from one of my favorite Maryland wineries, Black Ankle. I can’t wait to return to try what are now old favorites and see what new dishes WK has to offer.
Best customer experience ever. I ordered a brunch item that was not what I thought from the description and when the waiter asked if I like it I indicated that it was not what I expected. We come here frequently so this is the first time that has happened. Good dish--just not what I expected. The waiter asked me a few questions and then the chef Spike came back with a vegetable flatbread that was absolutely perfect and the best flatbread that I have ever tasted. Then we commented on the cans of tomatoes that were on the wall and asked about where we could get a can. Next thing we know they gave us a can of the tomatoes plus jam and hot sauce. We have told everyone about this great experience.
Service not great, lots of waiting & food was mediocre this time. Been before & liked it, not sure I’ll return.
Service was wonderful- from drinks at the outside bar to waitstaff. Sara, the sommelier, gave us a PERFECT recommendation on the wine. We were thrilled to have a wonderful dinner and can’t wait to come back.
Woodberry never disappoints! The cocktails and food are always superlative, probabaly the best in town.
Highly recommended. Fantastic seating indoor and out. Excellent staff. Will go back as often as possible.
Great food , very creative menu.
Another wonderful meal at our go-to restaurant for special occasions and every day dining! Amazing locally sourced food, intriguing menu selections, wonderful staff, the best!!
The service was beyond exceptional. The volume of music was excessive which was our only complaint. Every dish was prepared perfectly as expected
Service was great; sat outside less noisy food great especially small plates — greens or clams were a little dandy
Awesome ambience! Can be causal or fancy :) Delicious food and friendly service. A real parent pleaser for special occasions!
The food over all was good. The crab pot was runny. The deviled eggs were really basic. The skillet chicken had good flavor.
Excellent, inventive menu. Slightly smaller portions than I remember :)
Service was outstanding. We were celebrating a birthday and my grandson's moving up from kindergarten. They made him feel very special. Additionally he has a few food allergies and the restaurant was very accommodating.
Service and food on point! The innovative menu and unique use of seasonal ingredients makes this a new experience almost every time we go. One of the best places to dine in the city for any occasion.
Was running late. The Hostess and everyone was exceptionally accommodating. Our party closed down the restaurant and we were not rushed along but instead we were treated very well by a relaxed and cool team. The food was outstanding as was the service. WK has become my favorite go to restaurant in the city
We have chosen this venue for a number of special occasions; birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc. we keep coming back because the stag is so incredibly warm, friendly and yet startlingly professional. The surprise “treats”are presented with modesty and confidence. The way the wait staff and even the manager check back with a sly twinkle in their eyes “how was it..?” And the food is everything you could want; amazingly crafted dishes with an eye on freshness and local farm-to-table ingredients.
Pricey? Not when you look at the value for what you spend!
Almost don’t want to share.. but the secret is already out.
Made a reservation, arrived on time, were told to wait "a few minutes." Waited nearly 30 minutes.
Food was pretty good. Not amazing, but pretty good.
Popcorn is $2 per bowl. We're talking a cereal bowl of popcorn...the cheapest food known to man...2 bucks each refill. C'mon guys.
Our server interrupted our conversation more than once. All told, there were probably 5 different people that came to our table.
The restrooms were really nice. The duck breast was the best thing on the menu.
The steak tartare was phenomenal as well as the charcuterie board. Beautiful room, Livingston iwas very helpful recommending suggestions and pacing the flow of the meal.
We had a wonderful meal here. Great ambiance and feel, great food. I really enjoyed my cocktail and hubby (wine snob) enjoyed his wine. We had our granddaughter with us though, and there were no good choices for a picky young eater - that was the only drawback. We'll be back!
This was a fabulous place that I can only describe as rustic with fine dining. I enjoyed my seat close to the stone fire oven watching the various meals being made. My food was excellent and the server was great. I would highly recommend it this place and will definitely go again.
We love the food and the wonderful staff! Thanks for a great anniversary dinner!
Nice atmosphere. Fails to do basic brunch food well - flavors aren’t balanced and menu is overpriced and over engineered.
