    We got the elk tartare and charcuterie to start and they were both delicious. The charcuterie didn’t come with cheese which I wish it did but it was very, very good anyway. We also ordered a Montreal royal cocktail which was exceptional and a Moscow mule which was tasty. We had the boar and the chicken cordon bleu for dinner. The boar melted in your mouth and the maple glazed heirloom carrots that came with the chicken were phenomenal. Our server was so friendly and knowledgeable about the food. If we ever visit Toronto again we will be back!

    This place did not disappoint. The Rack of Wild Boar I had was shockingly amazing. I didn't think it would be that good. Same goes for the Seared Ontario Elk my lady had. Ambiance was great, it was exactly what I wanted out of my evening. Our server (wish I knew his name) was absolutely great as well. Definitely on my list of places to revisit in the future.

    Went here for a date. The food was awesome, our waiter was so funny, and the ambience was great! Only complaint would be the loud fan duct that would turn on once in a while, but after a while I would get used to it. This is a perfect place to go on a date.

    Food was just okay. Presentation was fantastic Our waiter, Derek, was great but the food getting to our table was very slow. Our main took so long that they gave us each a glass of wine and a small plate of risotto. Very nice. However, it then took 40 minutes for dessert. Not worth it.

    Fabolous! Best restaurant of our long weekend in Toronto. Food is excellent. Service was great and nice decor. The only slight (very slight) draw back for our group was the music was a little loud. But very enjoyable dinner and we all agreed it would be on our place to dine again if we got the chance.

    Expensive for the small portions you get, be forewarned... Our server made several mistakes but made up for them by offering a free drink. Obviously, those mistakes were in the direction of overcharging us (when was the last time you were ever undercharged at a resto?)... Some of the dishes were big misses, eg the striped bass special was soggy and underseasoned. On the other hand, burger, tartar, and carpaccio are superb.

    What an amazing dining experience! Our waiter Tommy was super helpful at offering recommendations that did not disappoint one bit. The ambiance is wonderful and the food choices were all amazing (minus the scallop Duo which was not quite what we were expecting). Would definitely go back to try out the new amazing menu options and to see how the restaurant has changed their interior decorations.

    Woods was fantastic! The service was personal and professional. The craft cocktails were creative and thoughtful, with care given to the menu. The food, oh the food, sublime attention and care with local ingredients truly made the dining experience special. We were visiting from the U.S., and we'll be returning before the end of our trip to celebrate a birthday with Toronto natives. Bravo!

    The food is extremely good and sourced locally or fresh. The wait staff is also pretty good, however, it was rather distracting when we'd be in a conversation when the waiter would pop over and interrupt us - more than once. When desert was plated on the table it wasn't explained what exactly what was what as we had ordered one of everything - as one does for deserts. Overall, I would go back as I love the food, but I'd like the wait staff to wait for a better opportunity to ask if we need anything further. Thank you.
