Great steak place. Crab cake was delicious too. Far enough off the casino where you nearly remember it's there.

Food as usual was excellent. The Chop Salad was different than the last time we were in town and ate here, still good but different. Girlfriend love the Thai Seafood Pasta, said it was the best yet. My Seak au Poivre was excellent as usual. Must be getting older, could not finish it this time. If there was a negative and really not much of one, it was a little nosier than usual in the wait station and we really like to sit and savor the time alone we have and it felt like we were served faster than we like. Maybe there was another reservation.

We come to Woodfire every year for our Anniversary. It never fails to Wow us. We love the food, the wine selection and the ambiance. This year we were hesitant because of covid, but we felt very safe and were impressed on the mask policy and distancing of the tables. Our waitress was fun and attentive. Once again, we had a wonderful time. Thank you

Great service and great food. I rated value 4/5 because the food is on the expensive side, but we don’t go to the restaurant because it’s a great value per say, we go for the great service and delicious food. It’s definitely a financial splurge for us, but it’s definitely worth it when we do decide to go.

They were out of their only chicken entree, so I ordered the chicken flatbread and only had one bite. The server Was not proactive about the uneaten meal. The soup and salad were 5/10.

The filet mignon was excellent, the scallops were excellent, the crab rangoon flatbread was out of this world good. We also enjoyed the lobster bisque and the lobster macaroni & cheese. The service was also amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

When we went to this restaurant for the first time the food was absolutely amazing. We drove 3 1/2 hours to go back just for this restaurant and the quality of the food was very disappointing. We ordered the exact same thing that we ordered the first time and the meal was not even close to the quality. It was as if the cuk was in a hurry our appetizer beef and blue were very chewy rather than melting in your mouth like the first time and we had to scrape for sauce because there was barely any on the plate nothing like the first time. The baked potato was not cooked all the way through it was still raw in the middle towards the bottom and the steaks were not cooked correctly. Huge disappointment after we enjoyed it so much the first time and drove over three hours just to go there a second time. The best part of our experience was the bartender and the drinks and the bartender will vouch that neither one of us took three or four bites out of our food. If we ever go back again it will just be for the bartender in the drinks no food

Top notch service by the wait staff and excellent food. My wife enjoyed a great chocolate martini, but my drink was disappointing. One should never put club soda in an Old Fashioned. I hope this was a slip up by a new bartender and not a matter of practice for this restaurant to save money on the alcohol. I would have ordered two more drinks. Overall good dining experience.

We have eaten at the Woodfire many times over the last five years. We always have a wonderful experience. They are very conscious of COVID 19, and we felt very safe during our last visit. The staff and food were excellent as usual!
