Waitress was very nice and knowledgeable. Appetizer menus leaned heavily towards seafood. Wife is allergic to seafood so not many selections.

My prime rib was of nice size and thickness but was tough.wife ordered well done filet. Sent back twice and was not edible so she didn’t eat it.

We weren’t charged for the steak and she was compt her dessert to compansate for not eating her entree.

Can’t charge Chicago prices and not deliver a great meal. Was wife’s birthday so very disappointed.

The food was terrible. One steak didn’t come out and when it did it was raw on inside and burnt on outside. Sending out t back made it worse. Burnt worse and still not done inside. Two weeks d the burgers were like charcole briquettes and one was under cooked. Terrible food for not cheap prices

The lobster bisque waas not quite up to par, it had fat glumps in it and the flavor was a little off, it was server quite hot which was good, some time when it is served in a cold bowl it get luke warm fast. The berry chease cake was also a little tasteless, it was suposto be penut butter but it had not taset and an ugly color

It is always a pleasure to dine at the Woodfire Restaurant, Dubuque, Iowa. Never a disappointment.

There is not a restaurant in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Az. that would exceed the “attention to detail” that we consistently receive at Woodfire. (Note: We are in Scottsdale six months per year.)

We are sad to leave this area for Scottsdale because of Grandkids and Woodfire. But snow and other bad weather, trumps both.

But, we always come back!

Reservation process easy, table and surrounding very nice, food was fair for price. Asparagus was not very good, too large and woody. Steak, onion soup, and bread excellent.
Ordered a brandy Alexander and it was awful, guess they didn't have ice cream, thus it was a bad tasting liquid. Felt we shouldn't have been charged. Server had trouble getting our bill right.

We have eaten at Woodfire Grille in the past and ha e always enjoyed our meals. The staff is friendly, professional and efficient and the food very good. I would have given the food 5 stars, but was not very fond of the Au Gratin potatoes.

We had a fantastic meal consisting of prime rib, asparagus, garlic mashed potatoes and lobster macaroni. One prime rib was requested medium well and an end piece of available. That is exactly what was received. The waitress did a very good job up until we were ready to leave. We had tickets to a concert so we were anxious to get moving and we couldn’t find our waitress. Come to find out she also had a table of 10 and their food was ready as we were ready to leave. I guess I would recommend a little more assistance on larger groups. Overall great meal and great experience. We will be back.

I have already recommended Woodfire Grille to several people. It was a really busy Saturday night, so there was a bit of a wait for our waitress and then our food, but we were there to enjoy the ambiance and conversation. Everything was excellent! It was the second time we were there in a month, once to celebrate our anniversary and Saturday night to celebrate my husband's birthday. The complimentary dessert was a real hit with the birthday boy! We will be back. It's expensive, but the quality is excellent, so it's worth it.

Our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our entries. We had Sea Bass, Prime Rib, Short Rib Stroganoff, & Strip Steak with Blue Cheese Butter. Sea Bass was cooked perfectly. The Strip Steak cooked as requested. Prime Rib was a nice large portion. We agreed that the Stroganoff was outstanding.
Our appetizers were not as tasty. The Crab Cakes were dry, with too much filler Shrimp Cocktail, served on a platter, serving size was 4 medium at best...for $16 one would expect more, especially at a steakhouse.
The Bloody Mary was very good Two of us had Martinis, requested very cold & up......they were barely chilled when served.
Our server was delightful. I wish I could recall her name.

First time dining at Woodfire Grille and it was great! I was in town to visit some family and we all enjoyed our dinners very much. The food was delicious, service was great and I loved the atmosphere in the restaurant. Bottles of wine were reasonably priced as well, so we will definitely be back again sometime!
