We were really excited to check this place out for our anniversary. Ambience and service was excellent. However, it took over an hour from when we were seated to actually get our appetizers and then another hour for our mains. When the food did come out I highly recommend the Caviar and elk based dishes. The scallop ceviche reminded me of camping due to the Smokey aroma which did not mesh with the rest of the plate. The seared tuna was lacking flavor and was quite dissapointing especially for the price.

I feel like this place deserves another chance.

Service was slow, dining room was so loud could not have conversation with my partner, food was not prompt and needs fine tuning to be excellent.

We went here for dinner to celebrate our anniversary and everything was amazing. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Our server was even kind enough to give us a complimentary glass of Prosecco and a nice wine pairing suggestion for our appetizer. Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful evening! There were 7 of us and we arrived around 6:30. Before we knew it, it was 10:30 . The staff was attentive, and friendly. The staff knew their menu and wine list. Their recommendations were great. Woods does not have a large selection on the menu, but there is choice for everyone. The presentation was simple, yet elegant. The flavours were wonderful. In short, the food was outstanding! I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning.

We went to celebrate our anniversary. Literally EVERYTHING was exceptional - service, ambience and FOOD. It is very hard to impress me, but this one left unforgettable emotions! Try smoked elm tartar, try elk with tortellini, try green salad, try cocktails, you will love absolutely everything

main courses served before app for some reason and they were cold. halibut tartare was too greasy, not enough acid in there to balanced the fish. steak tartare was bland. boar was okay, tasted like a Chinese dish which costs me 12 bucks, rabbit was too cold to comment, dessert was okay. amuse was a weird combination and tasted like some bitter medicine with a sour flavored candy. not sure why would you guys put unseeded promegranate in amuse, it didn't help for sure. will not come back, sorry about it

Valentines... everything was great except a major issue happened in the kitchen around mid meal. All tables suffered. There were apologies but certainly made for a rough valentines night out. Will be a while before we trust them to deliver on a special occasion night when coming back.

Great atmosphere, and the service was awesome. We had a great chat with the bartender who was ver friendly. The food was good, but was on the expensive side. We had the elk and the seared tuna - both of which were tasty.

Great service and ambiance. Most of the food was unfortunately a miss for us. The kale salad side was the best. But everything else was just alright. The dessert options were very lackluster. We had tuna, halibut and elk as our mains. Elk was unique but was alright. Halibut was overcooked. I like the ambiance there just wish the food was slightly better.

A gem of a restaurant - with an intriguing and well-executed focus on Canadian-sourced ingredients. Well worth a visit for visitors to Canada. And for residents, it is a wonderful reminder of the variety the country has on offer, even in the depths of winter. We had dinner early on Saturday night, but even by 7:30 p.m. there was still availability. This is one of my downtown faves.

I had the scallops to start; incredible. My main was the halibut and I was blown away. This place is a hidden gem.

Sit at the bar to eat. You won’t be disappointed.

Elk tartare had too much shallots and onions, it covered the taste of the meat. Same with the halibut ceviche, too much onions it was a little spicy. Seared elk as a main was decent, and wild boar was decent too but too salty. I had the NY striploin which was a disappointment, not up to standard, very mediocre, no surprises. Side dishes can definitely improve too. Great ambience and service was great.

Dish preparation a little different now - we are regulars and have been for years. Found the cordon blue had a different texture and flavour and perhaps not as good . Everything else was outstanding including the service - Michael and his team are outstanding and most welcoming

Enjoyed a quiet and delicious meal at Woods. My wife’s squash pasta was excellent and the seared tuna was beautifully done. Would recommend for everyday dining or a night out.
