We offer both a meat and vegetarian version of our menu, with lots of cooking done over open fire. Vegan and most dietary restrictions happily accommodated.
I think you can get a lot more for your money in the city. The wait staff and the kitchen were exceptional, I have no complaints about the food or service. They were prompt, friendly, presentation of the food was amazing and it was delicious. The menu could stand to have maybe 1 or 2 more options available.
My complaints are - the street hanging off the patio is really, really busy. It's load, there's trucks and a loading area nearby, and some crazies who seem to hang outside the condo next door. Also - the seating on the patio is terrible, it's long tables so if you want to sit closest to the street and another couple or group sits down beside you, well they all have to get up when you need to use the bathroom or when you leave. That inconvenience just kind of messes with the ambiance. I think dining inside would probably be much, much nicer.
It was our first time visiting Woodlot for an anniversary and our expectations were exceeded! The food, service, and ambiance were all beyond what we could have asked for. Our server was also very knowledgeable and accommodating with a vegan guest. We look forward to returning in the near future.
One of the best meals I have enjoyed. Period. On par with experiences in New York, London, Paris, and Rome.
I’ve been to Woodlot a few times and the food has always been delicious.
sub par food, bland cocktails, impersonal service.
Portions are small. Food was good but unexceptional. Host staff are stone-faced and humourless. Cocktails are very good. An interesting place, more of a novelty, and maybe a quick-and-dirty place for locals, but nothing to write home about.
Woodlot accommodated a last minute booking - and on the patio on a Friday night! Food was delicious. Rosé by the glass was pretty ordinary. Great service. Wish there were more side dish options to accompany the mains.
The food is outstanding, not something you can find just anywhere.
Absolutely outstanding! Best evening out to a restaurant in Toronto in quite some time! I’ve worked in the industry myself, and this was top notch all the way around. Service, ambiance, food - equal perfection. Will be back soon. Thank you!
The service and friendliness of the staff was one of the best experience I've had in Toronto. the food was good and the portions were larger than expected.
Great food! Prepared with care. Visually impressive plates as well
Vegetarian menu was amazing. I also had the cured trout from the non-veg menu and it was incredible too. Really great food, very wide range of flavours and SO flavourful. I would definitely recommend.
Tad pricy but excellent staff and food... wanted to steal some bread on my way out
Another killer meal at one of Toronto’s best kept secrets. A+++ The vibe, wine selection, handmade pasta, and creative use of the wood-fire oven. Favourite dish: carrot and ginger agnolotti w braised rabbit.
Delicious food, nice room, and a good selection of wine and other drinks. Service was disjointed; we had to ask to order a second round of drinks, servers kept bumping my chair as they walked by, and we weren't offered plates for sharing dishes. It wasn't particularly busy when we were there, many tables were empty so I would expect smoother service for this price point.
The steak was delicious but for $31, I would expect a side vegetable.
I would return as it's in my neighborhood and the food was excellent, but with lower expectations of the service, perhaps for a family meal rather than an anniversary date.
Sensational food and attentive service in a relaxed but cool atmosphere!
Waiter told us that long wait for appetizers & mains due to their being one chef short that night.
First time at Woodlot. Loved the ambiance and the decor. The Mushroom Rice starter dish was absolutely delicious. The chicken pot pie was juicy and cooked to perfection. Everything is cooked in a stove oven and that taste reflects in the cooking. Will be recommending!
Great cozy vibe, super friendly staff, delicious food.
Nice place. Friendly staff. Good place to visit for a relaxing dinner. We had gone for a birthday and really enjoyed.
Vegetarian lovers will love it. Because they have a seperate menu.
Desert with tart and burnt vanilla was superb
5 out of 5 stars! Food was delicious, service was great! Really neat drinks too! Will absolutely be going back. Would love to try their different seasonal menus!!
The atmosphere is nice but the food is way overpriced for the quality
Great vegan options, great food, excellent service
Amazing dinner and great service. We sat at the bar and our bartender was really knowledgeable and had great recommendations - in addition to making us feel very welcome. She made the night for us!
Excellent food, wonderful service and very cozy ambiance.
The food was wonderful and the service was efficient, helpful and very accommodating. The noise level was a bit much for two people to have an easy conversation with each other. Luckily we were able to move one table away from the loudest bunch making it more enjoyable.
Had a lovely dinner - shared everything. Caveletti particularly yum. Nice quiet sound level so you can actually speak to each other. Wines pretty pricey but everything tasty .
great dinner with friends - food and timing were perfect
Fun, good food, great ambiance
A funky place with an intimate, casual atmosphere - who doesn't want to have dinner in a shipping container. The food was great - unique dishes that were very flavourful! The service was welcoming and not overbearing. A great experience!
Fabulous food, great service and a wonderful wine list.
Horrible and slow service. The waiter did not communicate with us except to take the order. Our glasses were empty for quite a long time and the waiter brought food but dropped the plates and left quickly without asking if we needed anything for both the apps and entre. We were missing a fork after the apps and we had to take on from another empty table as we could not get the waiters attention to bring one over. We had to flag the waiter down to order a drink. There was no checking in to see how the food was. It took just under two hours for us to receive our entre. When ordering a bottle of wine i asked for a full bodied wine and the bottle that was recommended was lighter than what i would have considered full bodied. I looked up the wine after the fact and found it on a couple of sites that i trust and it was classified as medium bodied. The food was ok but the slow and poor service distracted from the food. After dinner service I went to the washroom and saw a large hard shelled bug in the washroom.
The staff were incredible and very accommodating to our requests! The food was also fantastic and we will definitely be returning.
It was such a good decision to go during the week, as it was super quite and not too busy. The Hen of the woods + wild rice starter and steak were beyond amazing!
Wonderful as always !! This place keeps impressing us every time.
I’ve been four times in the past year. My fave restaurant by far!
The food at Woodlot never disappoints. The portions seem to have increased in size lately but the quality has not suffered. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed but the noise levels can be a bit loud when all the tables are full. It still remains my favourite neighbourhood restaurant.
Awesome staff and food. Chicken and Pork Hock Pot Pie was amazing.
Fantastic food! A great Selection of vegetarian options all with an interestung twist. Sat right by the kitchen so we could smell and see all the fresh made to order meals. Will definitely return!
Enjoyed the experience, knowledgeable staff, great service, and quality food.
