Horrible service ... some of the oysters sour.. waitress had attitude .... very cold and icey entrance only to be told by one manager that it’s lease management company responsibility! Then go to store 2 minutes away and buy salt which they finally did but don’t pass buck to a customer .. food is horrendous and weird

I have been to Woodberry before and had excellent food. This time it wasn’t so great. The chicken was burnt and fatty. The biscuit was burnt. My friend got the grains and beans and she said it was mediocre. I got an Irish coffee for dessert and it was gross. Way too much sugar. I felt sick all night. The waitress was not very friendly. It was very disappointing. I will eventually go back but not for a long time.

I chose this restaurant for our Valentine's Day Dinner. The food and drinks were really delicious and fresh. Our waiter, Brad, was exceptional. The overall service at Woodberry Kitchen is top-notch due to a team approach to customer service. My only complaint is that my meal could have been warmer. I had ordered the scallops and when I took a bite into my meal, it was room temperature. I asked our waiter if the dish should be warmer or is it usually served room temperature. I was informed that it should be warmer. Brad did state that he would inform the kitchen staff . I chose not to return my plate & have it rewarmed because I didn't want to risk my scallops being overcooked. Overall, I would patronize Woodberry Kitchen again. Oh and the HOT BUTTER RUM beverage needs to be a permanent fixture on the menu! Delicious!

Our favorite place in Baltimore to eat! All of the waiters are dressed in plaid and jeans, we love it! Industrial decorations in a converted former factory building. So cool. Best food, drinks and ingredients I have ever had.

I love this place, but ONE issue still lingers. I wanted a to go bag, and they offered to box my food up and never brought it back to the table. I'm still HOT about that.

Woodberry is always an excellent choice. I usually visit for special occasions because it is pricey (but worth every penny!). I've been around (to the Baltimore area restaurants 😉), and there isn't a higher quality restaurant in the area. I am always excited to spoil myself here!

Good atmosphere. The location was interesting and the decor good. We were seated upstairs in the dining area, where the tables were a bit cramped. If seated along the wall, you will be sitting quite close to the table next to you. The menu concept was nice, but ultimately the small plates overpriced for what they were and the entrees expensive. Drinks will set you back $15 or more depending on what you like. I'm glad we tried this place, and we did have a nice meal, but ultimately there are places that will give you more for the same price.

My guests enjoyed their dinners. I was unable to eat my dinner due to the food preparation, which was not specified on the menu: the meat was (excessively) marinated in garlic and the potatoes and kale drenched in a pan jus that was liquid garlic. I could not taste any natural flavors underneath the garlic. My uneaten food was noted at clearing and the manager personally came to inquire. I was not charged for my meal and the manager comped dessert for my party. Staff, ambience, manager were all worth more than three stars but I was, and remain, totally turned off by the chef's approach to a simple farm-to-table chicken dinner. I doubt that I will book here again.

Server was slow, dismissive, and seemed to want to chat with his coworkers rather than serve his customers. It took 30 minutes for him to get a bowl of ice cream. Waited 30 mins past reservation time. Food was good and service was sub par.

Every time I've been to Woodberry Kitchen, I've expected more than I got. I think it starts with the price and the hype from others that it never lives up to my expectations. For me personally, it is a place price wise that should and needs to live up to expectations.

Overall, our experience at Woodberry was a positive one. However, my fiancée and his brother and wife ordered steak, and by the time their orders arrived their meat was very cold. For the price of the meal, we expected the service to be better. Nobody enjoys a cold steak. They brought us a free appetizer because we waited so long for our meal to arrive, but in the end it didn't make up for the cold meat.

We have dined at Woodberry before and loved it but we live in DC so it had been some time since we made the trek up to Baltimore. We were really looking forward to connecting with great friends over a nice relaxing dinner at a great restaurant. Wow were we disappointed. I will never go back. The service was very odd. Just odd. And the food was also disappointing. Perhaps worst, management did not handle the situation well at all and a follow up call to the general manager was not returned. Terrible experience.

I hosted a gathering of six to celebrate a birthday on a recent Saturday evening at 6:00 . We were seated right away. Our server was knowledgeable, but her timing throughout the meal was horrible (e.g., she came to the table as we were finishing our entrees to see if everything was okay). We ordered a few appetizers for the table to start. The crab dip tasted great but was too thin. Deviled eggs were fine. The veggie flatbread (it only came to the table when I noted it was MIA) was burnt and dry. Our entrees were a mixed bag. All agreed that the chicken, duck and rockfish were excellent. Thumbs down on the turkey enchilada, pork chop, and beans and grains. The evening was chaotic (our primary server only appeared infrequently as there appears to be a team approach to waiting on patrons), but my dining partners enjoyed themselves nonetheless. It was very loud on the first floor. Not rushing back anytime soon.

While I love Woodberry, the service was terrible. We ordered apps with our drinks, waited a long time for our drinks to appear then our main courses arrived before our apps... server apologized for poor timing of dishes but we didn’t get anything waived off our check, which I would have expected. “Runny egg” on my breakfast flatbread was hard, too.

We went to Woodberry Kitchen for brunch. This was our first visit and we were thrilled. The space is really cool, the service was FANTASTIC from the hostess to the servers, and the food and cocktails were delicious. I am a little in love with their Bloody Mary and all of their dishes are seasonal and locally sourced. Wonderful experience!

Another outstanding evening at Woodberry Kitchen. This continues to be one of our favorite places to eat in Baltimore, and our most recent meal did not disappoint. They always have the BEST local cheeses with interesting pairings, and their unique menu is always creative and delicious. I greatly enjoyed the tavern steak; I had a small carry-out bag for leftovers, which I initially forgot upon leaving the restaurant. When I returned, our table had been cleared, but our waitress was so kind as to send me home with a complimentary jar of their home-made jam. We will ALWAYS return for special evenings at this fantastic restaurant.

You have an amazing waitstaff, our experience was wonderful. The food is always impeccable. I don’t like that our table wasn’t ready within 10-15 minutes of our reservation because there’s really no place to wait without being in the way when the bar is packed. We will be back and recommend you to friends. :)

Have eaten here more-than-a-few times and it was becoming the new go-to place for family birthdays. However, this Friday nite episode was poor. Main complaint was the constipated and inattentive service. Waiter took our order and the food appeared after long stretches, delivered by folks who were not our waiter; she was otherwise engaged. As for the food quality: the crab pasta which the ladies had was tasteless -- unusual for the Kitchen. They left half on the plate.

With the change in format at Parts and Labor...and this poor performance at the Kitchen...my wife and I will be looking for a new "default" special-occasion place. Spike is failing us.

Interesting place. In an old manufacturing building with valet parking a block away. Not very handicapped accessible, but it can be done.

Wait staff were very attentive throughout the meal. Interesting menu of food not usually seen on most menus.

I had fried oysters, nicely breaded, tender and juicy and Rabbit stuffed with sausage and my wife had scallops.

Both entrees were excellent. As it was her birthday, the presented a scoop of Cream Ice cream at the end of our dinner.

it was a wonderful experience. The only problem is that is is about 45-60 minutes from our house. We definitely would go more often if it were more easily accessible.

The service and friendliness from server John could not have been better. He was a pleasure.
The chile and the Maryland Crab & Rigatoni were first rate, and the Rigatoni was generous enough to be the next day's lunch. My wife and I both thought the lamb shank flatbread was good, though dry and not very exciting. Two deserts, butterscotch pudding and a cherry tarte tatin, were both excellent. Two service-oriented items left me scrathcing my head. The reservation asked if this was for a special event. I marked birthday (my wife's). On the day before, I received a confirmation phone call and the young lady verified the speical day and asked my wife's name. All good, but yet no one (the hostess, John, anyone else) ever said a word about it and there was literally no acknowledgement. Though curious, I didn't bring it up because my wife didn't know she was to be spotighted in any way. I'm assuming this was a simple oversight. The second item is the valet parking. We stood in the cold while our vehicle was about 30 feet away. We could just as easily have parked it and retrieved it ourselves.

I went here for my 23rd birthday. I had only been once before for my 21st birthday and once again Woodberry Kitchen did not let me down. It was a wonderful experience! It was not very crowded, but it was superbowl sunday so that may have been why. Our waiter ( I forgot his name, but I remember him saying he was from Ireland) was VERY knowledgeable about the menu and made excellent recommendations. He spoke beautifully about each item on the menu, and at one point I was in complete awe at his memorization skills. He seemed to know exactly when to pause so that we would not get overwhelmed with information which I really appreciated. My family enjoyed the meal very much. You definitely get plenty of food so it is well worth the price in my opinion. The food tasted very fresh and flavorful! The alcohol they use is not cheap because the next morning I did not feel sick after having two 2nd amendments the night before. The ambiance is classy and romantic but also comfortable and inviting. I did not feel out of place by wearing jeans. My family and I were having such a great time we didn't even realize we had stayed a little over closing! Thank you very much Woodberry Kitchen!
