This is my fourth time to Woodberry Kitchen and always excellent food. This time I found the menu so overly pretentious and took too much energy to really understand what your were ordering. Yes, it is great food but not so unique that I should need an extensive dialogue with the waiter and a dictionary. Cocktail menu overly complex for what are basically good drinks that everyone else is doing. A flight of cider was basically three small pours in beat up water glasses plunked down randomly on the table. I ordered a tomato flatbread which was good but basically a cheese pizza nothing more. The main dishes were really great but not as phenomenal or unique as described on the menu. I mentioned at the end of dinner to the waiter that I felt this menu was written in an overly pretentious way and wow did he get defensive! Maybe someone had brought this up before? Please you do have great food, farm to table, but your menu descriptions are very inflated and basically make it hard to order what you would really like. The waiter's solution was to ask more questions which is hard to do when in the middle of a very busy restaurant with high noise volume. As I said an excellent restaurant but not as creative and unique as presented.
Just as good as everyone says it is. We've been many times over the years and it has been consistently exciting and delicious. Crab pot, flatbreads, and desserts are favorites but there are always new things to try. Don't skip the cocktails. Very creative and unique.
Enjoyed dining there again with friends and family. I had high expectations for the chicken dish but it was overly salted. I had remembered to ask that it not be salty. That was a disappointment. I believe everyone else enjoyed their meals.
The staff was extremely nice and helpful The food was amazing as usual.
The server was really cold.
I asked for my food in a togo box and she never brought it.
They asked if it was a special occasion multiple times and never acknowledged it.
They never brought a menu item that we ordered (albeit wasn’t on the receipt)
Unimpressed with food .... kinda blah
Fabulous place. Loved everything about it!
Great place, but a little pricey! The food is outstanding and service was excellent. It was too cold to sit outside, but outside looked awesome in nice weather!
Great food, great service. Can’t go wrong.
For the past 6 years a group of us make plans to eat at Woodberry Kitchen while we are in the Baltimore area for an annual event. It is something to look forward to each and every year! I highly recommend this fun and attractive spot with amazingly creative food which always delights. a great beer and drink menu! I've included a picture of 1 of the 2 desserts that 5 of us shared. next time, I won't share!
A hidden restaurant in a historic location. Food is great; staff is friendly and knowledgeable. A little enthusiastic with the reservations reminders (I received 4 within 2 days, even though I confirmed).
Not a great place for a special occasion. I left a note with my reservation that it was a 5th anniversary for my wife and I. A restaurant representative texted me the day of our reservation to confirm and asked if I was celebrating a special occasion. I said again that it was our anniversary. At the restaurant, there was zero acknowledgement of our special day, not even a word from the hostess as we were greeted. We also were being rushed most of the meal by our servers (eg, asking to take plates with food still on them, multiple courses at the table at the same time). On the other hand, the food and wine was very good, especially for Baltimore. However, on this Saturday night, the restaurant was best described as 'impersonal fine fast-food'. Sadly, this will likely be our last time to Woodberry Kitchen.
It was one of the only times I’ve not enjoyed dining at Woodberry kitchen. I’ll go back though - love their food.
Poor selection of wines, limited menu selections, starters and entrees very spare and overpriced.
This was the worst experience dining in Baltimore that I’ve had. Despite having reservations we were made to wait about 45 minutes. When I questioned the wait time I was told, “well if you can find a table then I will seat you at it”. The hostess was beyond rude, and directed so much vitriol towards us that our experience was ruined.
Reservation was for 830 and they did not seat us until 935; every time we asked they said they couldn’t give an estimate, and didn’t offer any compped drinks or snacks. Our cheese plate had generous portioned cheeses, but they were not appropriateely brought to room temp to experience the full flavor profile. The pesto pasta with mushrooms and the pesto was extremely bitter and almost no mushrooms, and the baked sweet potato dish was burnt almost to the point of being inedible. First time back in over three years- a far cry from the elevated dining experience and excellent food/service that it used to have. Would only recommend during non peak hours
What a wonderful evening we had. The ricotta dumplings in ham broth were lick the bowl clean good! Chicken and biscuit was outstanding, large portion, flavorful comfort food with acorn squash and collard greens. Outstanding dish, who knew such simple foods could sing? Dessert too good not to miss. Apple pie and oat ice cream with caramel sauce tasted like it came out of your favorite aunt’s kitchen. It was full of nostalgia and filled the sense. Our waiter was impeccable - well versed in every nuance of each dish. Don’t wait for a Birthday of special occasion to visit the Woodberry Kitchen....just go! You’ll enjoy every bite!
Chicken chilaquiles (sp) was mediocre - would not recommend that item
Loved everything about our dinner! Can’t wait to come back. Reservations required
I had an AMAZING experience! Brad, Jerome and the ENTIRE crew were so on the same page! They helped me as I had my 2 kids and trying to set up the table for my friend who is having a baby. I am blessed to have this team on my side. Thanks a lot for making our group of 10 guests so happy, welcomed and well fed.
Not a brunch menu that we related to very well. All agreed we did like the biscuits. The chicken chilaquiles were ok. The Bimbop soup had some very hot kimchee and there was no warning about this.
Best brunch I’ve ever had! A delicious and creative menu. I can’t wait to come back again!
The food and service were both fabuloous! We will be back.
We like Woodberry Kitchen . . . but the tendency to "flip" tables and pressure the diner into hurrying is becoming a bit grating.
Appetizers arrive with the entrees. Drinks come with dinner. And the check is snapped down on the table quickly.
Last Saturday night the waiter did everything short of ask us to leave.
This is not a place to linger or enjoy. For all the effort that goes into the food and drink the rush to get in and get out is unattractive and boorish. That's too bad. This is a good restaurant that needs manners. And it only seems to be getting worse.
Outstanding as usual. Only concern is they really squeeze tables together sometimes. The loft was very tightly packed this trip.
The trout was tasteless. The gluten free roll, the desert (caramel pudding) and the cappuccino were the only really good things about the meal. The noise level was extremely high, so both of us had difficulty hearing each other and even ourselves. I would be reluctant to return
Very special restaurant to celebrate special occasions or to treat yourself!
We came there as a gift from a family member, really great food and service, but I found it very overpriced for the items. To each their own I suppose, but $250 for dinner for four seemed quite high.
Food was horrible to say the least. Prices are very high and waiting to use the bathroom is the final nail in the coffin.
wonderful birthday brunch with amazing service. I even had flowers on my table because they knew it was my birthday.
Everything was great but what's up with all the fruit flies?
The food was delicious but the service was SPECTACULAR! I’ve dined in restaurants around the world including many with Michelin stars and I can honestly say tonight was probably the best service I’ve ever encountered. The staff take a great menu to a completely higher level. You can tell they love working here and that love is brought to your table.
Love the food. Impressed good advice on wine. Tables a bit to close to each other but other than that great!
Excellent farm-to-table experience. Very knowledgeable staff. Terrific setting.
First visit after hearing about it for years. Not at all disappointed. Great food, attentive service. Love the vibe of the place.
perfect! beautiful restaurant, amazing food, wonderful kind service!
Wonderful find during a recent trip to Baltimore. I liked that many of the ingredients were local, with an emphasis on local vendors and farms. Service was outstanding, the cocktails were creative and the food, I'd say inventive. Overall a wonderful experience and will recommend to friends and family.
No lemon for drink or fish.. was given a $22 glass of wine and was never told how much it was...other people at table had flatbreads.. very bland.. way too overprised
