The service was great and ALL was worth it! We wish there was a Woodfire Grille in Atlanta, just like this one.

We went to Woodfire to celebrate the 40th wedding anniversary of close friends. The food and service were top notch. Jess, the manager, and Lisa, our server, helped coordinate a surprise for our friends from their daughter. The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

We were very impressed with the ambiance where we were seated, The food was excellent. Best steak (Bone in Ribeye) I have had in many years. From MPLS and this steak was far better than similar at Mannys. The service was fantastic! Our server was so good, and I wish I could remember her name. We were very impressed and happy with our visit to your great steakhouse.

Excellent service —Best Prime Rib around
Very low carb with grilled asparagus

Criticism: Don’t let your coffee “cook” in the old school BRAUN like glass pitcher. Terrible . Today coffee is a cuisine in it self and nothing can blemish such fantastic food as sour, grey colored , stalecoffee.

Brew high end roast —local roasters like Verona Street— into THERMAL CARAFES. No more heat added to wreck taste!

Unfortunately, this place is incredibly disappointing; especially for the value. I did love the avocado appetizer, but otherwise, there isn't anything unique or delicious and worst of all, the food was not fresh.

We had a delicious meal in a setting where it was easy to talk at a table for 4. The prices are a little high so it would be difficult to dine here often but the food was superb.

This place is nice if you want a more upscale steak house. We were not impressed that the menu is a la carte. I think we were just expecting more of Pepper Sprout or Brazen experience.
Although the food was very good I can't say that we would come back

Not sure what "value" is supposed to be. Does it related to the cost of the meal? If so, we feel the food was very good but pricey. Main entrees should at least include a choice of two sides. We were fortunate to have our host, Todd Peil, comp part of the cost of our meal. Bar service was a bit slow but our waitress was very friendly and did her best to accommodate us.

I liked the staff and the restaurant itself very much. I just thought the food was incredibly over priced. I ordered prime rib because it usually has less fat than steak, but over half my cut of prime rib was fat. I got the queen cut which was 10oz and at other restaurants a queen cut is actually 16oz. It was good, just not worth the price. I probably won’t come back, but the staff is excellent.

We drive every year to the Woodfire grill (we live about 90 minutes away) because we love it so much. This year we had a really rough experience with the cooking of my steak. The server brought out a steak that should have been done medium well and it was (at best) medium rare (and that was a stretch). I asked for a steak that was medium well so they took the steak back. I fully expected that a new steak would be prepared at a restaurant of this caliber. I was then brought out the same steak (as I had cut into it), that was still not done to my liking, it didn't appear to be cooked much more thoroughly. However, at this point, the manager addressed my concerns and offered a different steak. They comped my steak and offered a round of beverages while we waited. They handled the experience wonderfully and the server was very attentive through the entire situation. I think it was probably an inexperienced chef as we have never had an issue before. I would highly recommend going as the food is amazing. One rough experience will not deter as service was still excellent and the wrongs were made right. Highly recommend!

All I can say is WOW!!! Best prime rib we have had!!! My baked potato was huge and just delicious!! The bartender was so helpful when we told him we had never been there before. He put our appetizer order in so it was at our table shortly after being seated. Our waitresses were absolutely amazing. We will be going back. Thank you for a great experience and for your friendliness ♡

Avocado appetizers were excellent. I had lobster bisque soup and my husband had French onion - both were very good. I had a filet he had pork tenderloins. Both were cooked to perfection. The individual fireplaces for the booths are so nice. Our server Lisa was so wonderful - she really made our 20-year anniversary very special.
