    Great experience with a great Staff. The Food Feature (scallops) were not the Best, unfortunately. Very uncharacteristic of this wonderful restaurant. The wine list is fantastic.

    Ribeye was tasteless. Roasted broccoli was good. Fully loaded potato fell short of expectations. Crab cake starter was great. But crab flatbread could have been better as it was too dry and crisp without sauce in some parts. Dessert was awesome. Main course of Ribeye was disappointing and contributed to the overall low experience. Service was excellent and staff was great. If I do go back I may try something other than the Ribeye.

    From the moment we walked in the door, everything was perfect!! Our server could not have been better; she was welcoming and very attentive. The food was amazing (salmon, scallops, macaroni and cheese (best ever) and the creamy and delectable crème brûlée, my birthday treat)! Best birthday dinner ever!!!

    Service and ambience were great. We have been there before and loved the steak. This time we had pasta and it was not well prepared. The pasta was dry. The shrimp in my pasta was overcooked as was the chicken in my wife's dish. Salads, desert and wine selection were good.

    Celebrated our friends wedding anniversary at wood fire. We had a group of 8 and they kindly put us in a private dining area. We had ordered 8 different meals and each one was perfectly prepared. There is a large selection of wine and cocktails to choose from. Our server was wonderful.

    Great evening Celebration. Best Restaurant in Dubuque Area. They Spoil us with the fantastic Wine Selection and Top Rated Entrée selections. The Service is the very Best. My wife and I go out to dinner four times a week, both in the Dubuque Area and in Scottsdale, Arizona. We hold The Woodfire Restaurant, right up there, with the Best Restaurants that Arizona can offer. What are you waiting for? This is it!

    we asked for a booth and we were told you had to make a reservation for a booth. they seated us at the first table where everyone walked in. not a comfortable spot in view of everyone entering dining area. then a group who had no reservation was asked if they wanted a table or booth. they chose the booth. very Odd. sea bass was very good, pork chop was was ok not the best. the seating issue was bothersome. we were dressed nicely, not shorts . i had a dress on and my husband was in slacks. others at booths were in shorts and very casual attire. not pleased with the seating issue.

    The staff was very attentive, the seating was comfortable, and the food was amazing! I think the only thing I could have done without was the decorative fires since it was so hot outside. Not sure if it was in my head but it made me feel too warm. Next time I'll sit elsewhere, problem solved! Would definitely recommend the French onion soup, the crab Rangoon flatbread, the bacon wrapped shrimp, and the cherry chicken. We both got a side of Mac and cheese, and the portions are large so we're should have split one instead. But it was delicious! We will definitely be back!

    Great meal and service! All the staff was incredibly friendly and attentive in our dinner service. We started with some of the best crab cakes I have ever had. They had such a great texture and flavor. Next we ordered the wedge salad and the chop salad. Both were excellent, and were definitely “designed” by their chef to make a signature taste. Then came the entrees, a perfectly cooked filet mignon, so buttery and delicious. The other entree was the beef stroganoff. I don’t know if there words to describe how great this dish was… but I will try, tender, full of flavor, creamy with hand crafted noodles! Overall a great meal and would highly recommend!

    All three steaks ordered Med rare. 1 was well done, 1 rare and was done correctly. They didn’t get the others persons order of salmon in until the served up the steak dinners. It was horrible and we blame the manager no one else.

    Was disappointed for the first time ever after many good visits to Woodfire. Requested booth on my reservation like I normally do but were set at a table in the adjacent room. Not the same atmosphere. Felt like all our food items were lacking salt or any spices. Server was excellent.
