Woodberry Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Came for Sunday brunch. We've been to brunch and dinner there several times and we always enjoy the experience. This time was among the best. Super attentive server, food came in a timely manner, everything was tasty. I look forward to our next visit as well!
Horrible experience. The waitress we had was beyond rude. She tried to rush us as soon as we sat down. We were a party of four and celebrating an engagement. We ordered multiple drinks and apps and within 15 minutes she was pushing us to order a dinner. She asked us 5 separate times what we wanted to eat. Finally we ordered dinner and it came within 10 minutes.. she was beyond rude trying to rush us.. I live in Manhattan and have never been rushed the way she was. Towards the end of the night she got even more rude and nasty
Outstanding all the way round. Our server was wonderful and the food was excellent. The pan cooked chicken was the best chicken dish I've had period. The menu had a great selection of seasonal and locally sourced foods. The ambiance was fun, casual and relaxed but the food was on par with the finest dining restaurants.
The service from the hostess station to our leaving was ... impeccable! The food was delicious and the service was quite good. The holiday music was a little louder than I would have preferred for an intimate dinner with my husband, but at least the music selection was good.
The service as always was excellent. Thanx, Brad.
I was disappointed with the smoked rockfish salad--the fish was barely perceptible--and the fisherman's stew--the portion was skimpy and quite pricey.
On the other hand, the chicken and biscuits was excellent and my companions enjoyed the snake charmer cocktails.
I've come to Woodberry kitchen every many times for the past 3 years. As the years have progressed this restaurant has continually gotten worse. This last time I was there (December 7, 2017) I decided I'm never going back. From the moment we got there the hostess staff was unbelievably rude. I had a confirmed reservation for 545. I got there at 544 and the two visibly disheveled hostesses, despite me showing them my confirmation e-mail, stated they did not have a reservation/available for me. This one hostess with long brown hair was unbelievably abrupt and rude- after so many wonderful visits to Woodberry kitchen this was upsetting. With a strong and obvious attitude she brushed past costumers mumbling things under her breath. I was shocked.
We were seated against the railing in upstairs seating. The table was nice but the staff was fumbling around at a staff station by the table so it was very loud and they bumped into our table several times.
The food was good but there was an overall sour flavor in almost every single dish besides dessert. I even heard the table next to ours talking about the sour flavors.
I don't like to complain but because this visit stood out as so unpleasant to me, after having so many good visits, I knew I had to make note. I even thought about calling the manager over when I first got there- that's not a good way to start the night.
I would like to say that our waiters were absolutely wonderful. Very kind, knowledgeable about the menu, and professional. I tipped high and was concerned about how Woodberry divides tips- I didn't want one penny going to the hostesses. The waiters were patient, came to the table at opportune moments, and were overall memorably pleasant. I also loved the cozy Christmas décor. The atmosphere was very warm and festive.
Woodberry kitchen has always been my top suggestion for friends but I can no longer recommend it.
So over this place. It’s in my neighborhood, so we go often because it’s close and we like the idea of what Woodberry used to be. That said, every time we’ve gone in the past 6 months, something goes wrong. This time it was the hour long wait to get a table that we had a reservation for. Previously, it was the warm bottle of wine after a 30 minute wait, room temperature food, and rude staff at the bar. The food is becoming mediocre and the service continues to be lackluster. Such a bummer to watch this place fall.
Too pretenscious for us. Get the farm to table local ingredients concept but carry some limes and lemons, really not local enough we live in Maryland not too many citrus growing around here. Great server knowledgeable and friendly, slow drinks, unique atmosphere, terrible value. $15 oyster chowder $45 12oz strip. Would recommend to right people not just anyone.
Reservation was honored. Servers were excellent. Beer was cold. Strip steak and rockfish were excellent. Reservation confirm requested nice table for birthday. They came out with very nice and appropriate candle on desert plate, with happy birthday written on plate with chocolate syrup. Very nice.
Made a reservation and still had to wait 30 minutes with no updates or reason offered until we were seated. Though, what's the best way to make up for it?...Two complementary snacks, which of course were tasty enough to forget the wait. After that the night was pleasant and the food is on point, as expected.
Snacks: One Straw Farm Popcorn - 3/5, pillowy kernels at the beginning were light and flavorful not overly seasoned, though were sitting in a puddle of oil towards the bottom; Spicy Cheese on Toast - 4/5, savory with hint of spice, reminiscent of pimento cheese, comes with thoughtful side of bacon bits “chipped ham” for topping.
Warm Plate: Ricotta Dumplings with Spare Rib & Shiitake Mushrooms Topped with Bread Crumbs - 4.5/5, plated like a stroganoff, was not on the menu, savory and slight creamy undertones, not heavy, and was the best choice of the night.
Supper: Spicy Pork & Rigatoni w/cheese straw- 3.5/5, cooked al dente to perfection, the sauce was a tomato bomb without that acid back, still deciding if there was enough sausage but, and was good portion, which I noticed they don't skimp out on. The light and crunchy 'cheesy stick is a puff pastry bread stick infused with Allegheny cheese--delightful.
Sticky Toffee Pudding: 4.5/5. Ok, maybe the real #1 of the night.. highly recommend though left something to be desired. Mini bundt w/oozing toffee sauce upon first cut--fantastic thought, but...what persimmon? The cake was not moist enough, maybe a little stale and the lack of delicious sauce emphasized the dryness.
#1 - dry white vermouth w/coriander: tasted like cardamom rather, light, refreshing
Half bottle wine - Alexander Valley (Cabernet Sauvignon) 2015, Sonoma County: 2/5, this is a red meat, hearty tasting wine, would not order with pasta.
In summary, the food is well-prepared and well-portioned; drinks are tasty but pricey, which makes it hard to pair on a budget... guess you go big or you go home wanting.
Service was great, however, bad night for the kitchen. Salad was poorly assembled and the scallops were served cool almost cold. In addition, we ordered the our beloved CMP with the peanuts on the side and the CMP was delivered with a sugar topping impossible to penetrate (had to be 1/4 inch thick with the nuts inside.
Very disappointing dining experience. Many other better choices.
Parking still a problem, especially in the colder nights.
