Always excellent. It’s that simple.
Amazing food, great atmosphere- every time 🤗
We have been dining at Woodberry kitchen since they opened. One of our favorite times to go is for brunch. Our dining experience is always amazing. We almost always sit at the bar. Yesterday, due to the impeccable service and the wonderfully positive attitude of our server/bartender, Hannah, our dining experience surpassed many previous experiences.
Wonderful night. Bartenders were very friendly, drinks were great, food delicious. Atmosphere was terrific. Beautiful old rehabbed building. Drinks at the bar and dinner outside - service was great. Everything was wonderful!
Excellent service.. I think our waitress’ name was Aurora
And delicious food
Will definitely teturn
My date and I had an excellent experience. Our server brought over a few complimentary food items and we loved them! Woodberry never lets me down.
Excellent food as always and extensive gluten free menu.
The entire dining experience was outstanding - seating, service, wait time and food.
Wonderful setting in Clipper Mill and very friendly service. Some dishes were amazing others were a bit bland and not quite as expected. Still love the place though.
We went for Sunday lunch, but only a breakfast menu was available. Mixed drinks were terrible! We actually left both a horrendous Bloody Mary and an unappetizing “bubbles” untouched after the first tastes. The Bubbles didn’t taste very fresh and was served in a dirty, sticky glass. The Bloody Mary tasted like dishwater. Ugh! Not a very promising start. Moderate service— the server came by a few times and asked if everything was wonderful, but never waited for our answers—or noticed our untouched drinks. Most of the food was mediocre. The menu sounded promising, but the food was just uninspired food. Biscuit was not worth eating, eggs were dry, a tomato-based sauce was cloying... On the plus side, the crab dip was tasty and was served hot and the cappuccinos were excellent! The setting is unique and charming.
We were visiting from out of town and used a gift certificate that we had been given. When the server returned, he threw it on the table and said it was only good for food and beverages (in other words, not the tip—although the gifter had paid cash for it, so that seems a penalty for buying a gift certificate from them.) He said he hoped we would come back to use the balance the next time we were in town. Nope. We have no desire to. We gave the card, with a balance of about $15, to another patron, so the restaurant wouldn’t benefit from their self-serving policy. I hope the other patron had cappuccinos!
Pass on this place. Baltimore has many excellent places to eat, but this doesn’t live up to that standard.
Also, the outdoor seating was plagued by biting flies. I was bitten about 30 times.
My husband and I went here for brunch the day after our wedding, and it was wonderful! Everything we ate was delicious. The Bloody Mary was so fresh and tasted great. Also, the staff went out of there day to make us newlyweds feel special. Thank you!
Great service. Amazing atmosphere. I brought my friends over for a reunion brunch and needless to say, we took so many pictures :)
I came here with a friends for brunch. I'm sorry that I can't come here with my daughter any longer. She has Celiac Disease and was ill for several days after our last meal here. We both got gluten-free foods at Woodberry Kitchen (including the delicious gluten-free biscuits), but there must have been a cross-contamination problem because she was sick later. We're positive it couldn't have happened anywhere else (no other eating out during the time period). We thought that Woodberry Kitchen was one of the few places in Baltimore where she could safely dine out (Petit Louis and The Helmand are the other two). Alas, no more.
Amazing and friendly staff. Ambience was perfect for a date or any other special occasion. Gorgeous restaurant. Food was delicious but did take a decent amount of time to come out, but then again it was super fresh. Will be back.
Food was excellent. Service was top notch
Very few vegetarian options.
Pick a dinner and ask them to remove the meat. ‘Meatless’ Monday should be all week.
Service was outstanding, attentive but not intrusive. Wine list is outstanding with some excellent values (and knowledgeable servers,). Fried green tomatoes were a wonderful shared starter. Porgy (whole fish) was buttery in texture and perfectly seasoned, complemented with crispy-fresh grilled vegetables. Duck breast and pork chop were hits as well. The dining room is fairly noisy but we could converse normally.
Overall experience was great, our server did forget to bring our leftovers. We didn’t realize it until we left.
I was disappointed n the menu selections. I had not been there for a while, so I was surprised at the menu without steak selections.
We had a great experience at Woodberry Kitchen. Our servers were attentive and helpful, we had an excellent table in the loft area, and the food was great. They did a lot to make our anniversary celebration special.
First of all, if you come across this restaurant, you are in a treat. Although it is not the everyday dinning, (it is quite expensive), but the food is exquisite almost every items on the menu.
We went here for dinner for our wedding anniversary. It was our first time here. The food and drinks were great and the staff was super. We really liked the ambiance of the restaurant. We noticed the outside seating which we thought would be really great in the fall. We will be back for sure.
I have been to Woodberry Kitchen MANY times. It is usually a wonderful experience, that was not the case on this visit.
My friend and I arrived 15 minutes ahead of our reservation for a drink at the bar. The hostess kept bothering us about being seated. Then the bartender joined in so we just went ahead and were seated. I understand if we were late they would want to get us seated ASAP but we were early and didn't like being pressured to take our table.
Secondly, our waiter was less than attentive to us. He never asked if I wanted another drink. When he spoke he mumbled so I didn't hear most of what he said.
And, worst of all, it was so uncomfortably hot in the dining room it ruined the dining experience. 2 tables down from us a woman was fanning herself with the menu. I was sweating. It was extremely uncomfortable.
On the positive side, the food was good. The blueberry tart was the best part of dinner.
New favorite place, enjoyed everything. Thank you Morgan.
Excellent as usual !
Unusual setting in a very old building with a locale that is equally historical with some businesses and apartment housing that hosts a Roman like swimming pool across from the restaurant. Service was impeccable. We had a great table in front of a window where we could see the pool. Menu was interesting. Salad was so-so, fisherman’s stew nice flavor but too much spice. Husband’s rockfish lovely but very expensive. Lamb meatballs to share, absolutely delicious. Large portion too. Home made ice cream was creamy with subtle flavors and not too sweet. They served it on a large plate with a single small candle and beautiful hand-written Happy Birthday to me. I may consider dining there again if I am in Baltimore.
We love this place but it's truly noisy. I specifically asked for the quiet room, ie not the main room or upstairs, but they were not able to accommodate us. It's ok.
Also service can be a little spotty. Our waiter was great but those who serve the food just do it reaching in front of your face instead of walking three feet to the side.
Finally my napkin had a whole i could stick my thumb thru...
I don't know what has happened to this restaurant, I believe it is the service, as the food continues to be interesting but perhaps not consistent. Our front waiter was fine but the back waiters were inefficient and flat, almost downright crappy. Dishes piled up on our table, back waiters gave flip responses to requests. We have decided to only come for brunch as the value for the terrible service is higher than during supper.
As usual, my dining experience at WK was the best. Thanks to my server Patrick, it was especially so. The food is flavorful and satisfying. Thanks to all!
My boyfriend and I had dinner here last night. I had been here twice before for drinks and had a great experience, but was unfortunately underwhelmed by the service last night. There was a 45 minute gap between our courses, and when we followed up with our waiter there was no apology or acknowledgment, he just said "food was trickling out slowly". Someone later stopped by to tell us that all orders were running behind, but nothing was comped and there was no effort to make up for it. When our food did finally come we were largely happy (chicken and biscuits was excellent). I would have given 4 stars, but we had asked for a takeaway box for the 4 slices of pizza we had left over, and when we got home discovered they had given us someone else's pizza (ours was a tomato pie, this one had meat and broccoli). Overall, not the experience I would expect for the price we paid and the reputation off Woodberry.
wonderful all around. Great staff, great food. Very creative, great flavors. It was a real treat.
We had the best time at Woodberry kitchen. The decor is beautiful and the service was great (specially the bartenders that recommended great cocktails).
We had the pork belly and the lamb meatballs which were both super tasty and the perfect serving size. We also shared a potato gratin (one of the best I've had) and dessert.
we will definitely be back soon
Excellent food and service beyond compare. Great value in a very cool setting. Good wine and beer list. Informative and helpful wait staff.
Beautiful restaurant and a great experience with the server. Drinks were very good. But the food was disappointing. Previous visits have been much more satisfying. Most dishes during our visit on 6/29/18 were over salted. The asparagus soup was terrible. The trout and soft shell crabs were certainly tasty but again over salted. There are so many things to like about Woodberry but the "kitchen" needs a little bit of attention.
Excellent birthday celebration!
Everything was great except noise level downstairs inside main room.
The service was a bit slow and unfriendly. No one was hostile. But, our server did little to make us feel welcome. The food, however, was inspired. For that reason, we plan to return.
The food was outstanding as to be expected. What really made the meal special was the enthusiasm and level of service we received from the service staff. They made great recommendations and education on where the food was sourced. Just a great overall experience.
Really disappointing. Food was bland and boring, service was abysmally slow. I honestly expect a lot more for a $30+ entree. We were crammed right next to the main thoroughfare beside the kitchen. The waitstaff zoomed by every 2 seconds and we just felt like we were in the way. I was sweating the whole time from the kitchen heat. Incredibly uncomfortable and annoying. Why would you seat anyone here?
I didn't voice my concerns at the time b/c we were out for a friend's birthday and I didn't want to dampen her experience.
Such a waste of money. I will never dine here again.
