    Little pricey if you get steak, but bacon wrapped shrimp is great, as is the Rangoon Pizza. Great fries and asparagus too!

    Both my wife and I asked for ribeyes. We asked for our ribeyes to be medium rare and they were rare. They also had no taste as though it was a bad cut of meat. VERY disappointed since this was my birthday and our wedding Anniversary dinner.

    Great server. Kevin will be spectacular at whatever else he does. Ordinary, reasonably priced food. Decent ambiance, considering the fact that it is located just off a gaming room which apparently allows smoking.

    This was the best meal we've had in years at a restaurant. Everything was delicious right down to the homemade chocolate truffles at the end! The ambiance was spectacular. All the staff from the host, the server, the managers made us feel welcomed. We were celebrating a birthday and they greeted us accordingly. We had prime rib and filet, wedge salad and split a big baked potato. It was all incredible! Would absolutely come back again. Thank you so much. (Helpful tip: reservations are important on a busy weekend)

    The service was outstanding, as were the appetizers. The food was only good. My beef and noodles dish were only slightly warm as were two of the other main entrees. The pretty penny Woodfire charges should be reflected in perfecting their delivery of hotter entrees.

    We were seated promptly at 5pm. The table was not adequately cleaned from the previous night's service, but our server apologized and made it right. Beef and Bleu app was delicious with properly-cooked steak and a fondue that did not break. Avocado rolls were also well-prepared. Half-sized salads were made well. Entrees were 4/5. The burger was served med-rare rather than medium, but it had good flavor, and the pork chop was tender, moist, and served medium as-ordered. Au gratin potatoes were very rich, would have sufficed with a half portion if offered, and the truffle fries were also in abundance but served hot. Crème brûlée was very creamy with good crust. Overall a pleasant experience.

    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.
