We love to eat at Woodfire Grille. The food and drinks are always delicious. The service is great and the chocolates at the end of the meal are perfect.

I have to say that my son ordered a filet mignon medium well and it came out well done, however; they made him a new filet that was perfectly medium well, took the steak off the bill, and offered him a free dessert. Mistakes happen. I get it. They were truly honorable in the way they treated my son and I will definitely be back.

The setting is very intimate and cute. First time we had eaten here after living in Dubuque all our lives but the steak did not have any flavor. It was cooked perfectly and was tender but no flavor. Same for the burger meat itself.

I ordered a ribeye. But I swear I got a New York strip. The meat was not too tough but did not resemble a ribeye at all. Other than that it was spot on.

The waitress was talking to the people at the table next to us constantly! They knew each other and would not stop talking this went on for maybe 20-30 minutes.It wasvery distracting sine we were expecting a normal dinner.

The food wasn’t anything special but the ambience was amazing. The one thing I wish they had was all of choices on the menu available during the week also. We came here really wanting Prime Rib and they only have it on the weekends but it’s on the menu they hand you.

Been to this restaurant many times. Nice atmosphere, good service, decent menu. This time the food was a bit off. Nothing terrible or worthy of a complaint. But everything I was served was slightly wrong. The Lobster Bisque was too thick and lacked flavor. The steak was slightly overcooked. The Bearnise was very thin and watery. The brownie dessert was extremely sticky (and was very difficult to eat with the provided spoon). The ice cream on the brownie was rock hard. Just was disappointing to have every course flawed. Again, the food was decent. Just not what I was expecting based on previous visits.

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.
