My wife and I were on a trip before our first child. The Woodlot came up in a search and one glance at the menu convinced us. From the ambiance to the menu, this is truly an unexpected and welcome surprise.

Great experience. Unique cocktails. Onion soup was exceptional. Other interesting delicious starters. Very tasty entrees. Good place if you are looking for something different on a menu that also tastes great. Would highly recommend a visit.

The plates are very small (even the entrees) and for the price, don't really make sense. This could be forgivable if the food was up to par, but unfortunately it isn't. The leek tart was passable but really underwhelming and tasted just like it's parts, not a cohesive whole. The marinated artichokes were quite terrible and basically inedible. The staff was really kind and attentive, but we went for some nice food to celebrate a special occasion and on that account we felt let down. We won't be going back, and I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Food was good. Note that you have to wait a while and this isn’t a great choice if you have diet restrictions. Food tasted good though and the place is really cute.

As always we had an absolutely lovely time! We came on a whim because one of us (it was me) was feeling sad and needed a good meal and a great glass of wine. Service was perfect, we always really appreciate how good Woodlot is about pacing. We like to have lots of time in between our course and it was spot on! The pappardelle was delicious! The pasta is always the best course in my opinion. The wine list is also impressive. Love that natural and minimal intervention style. Everyone who spoke to us was kind and charming and human. Great experience all in all.

Service was okay; not overly friendly or informative when asked about menu. Server seemed tired and apathetic.
Food was great. Onion soup delicious although on the sweet side. Guinea hen very nice but not outstanding for the price. Cocktail was flavorless. Wouldn't return.

The server was very knowledgeable and made everything on the menu seem sexy. We took all of his suggestions and they were all excellent. Of note: the mushroom appetizer is AMAZING. The pappardelle pasta was also excellent, but maybe a touch salty. The pork had just the right amount of sweetness and flavor. It was a great evening.

Cozy atmosphere, great service, delicious creative flavor pairings with fresh ingredients. I had the mushrooms to start (best mushroom dish I've ever had) and the stuffed squash as my main. So great.

Table was ready and nestled in the middle of the venue. Excellent atmosphere across the entire restaurant making this a great date spot or place to celebrate a special day with a small group. The service & menu depth are balanced making it easy to take your time and enjoy your meal. Our meals arrived piping hot on pre-warmed plates. If I am to pick on one thing, the wines by the glass (4 red/ 4 white) were too narrow for my taste as 2 of the 4 reds were of the same variety. That said the by the bottle menu is full of selection. I would recommend this spot to anyone interested in a nice night out.

We were in town from Minneapolis to see the city and enjoy some good food while visiting friends. This was our one date night, and it also doubled as a Valentine’s date. We loved the whole experience. The food and drink were wonderful, as was the service and ambience. We would love to dine at Woodlot again the next time we’re in Toronto.

Regrettably poor service overshadowed an otherwise nice dining experience. Our waitress seemed to have forgotten about us. After an hour of sitting with the drinks and dessert menu, and seeing literally everyone else servers and checked in multiple times, I simply paid the bill (with normal tip) and we left. Kinda mad about myself for tipping properly but didn’t want to make a scene as this was a special event for a friend.
