We had a great meal. We were a bit skeptics at first. The look of the place is very industrial and dark but the service was super. The menu is small with five entree choices and we were initially disappointed but the food was soooo good, the plate looked interesting, some unique combinations, and everything on it was delicious. I would go back in a heartbeat. Highly recommend this affordable downtown restaurant.

Started out great when sat but then had a change in server and it went downhill from there. Very abrupt and just dropped utensils and left wine undistributed on the table. Expectation was a fine dine, it was far from. Cocktails were very good though! I'm hoping this was due to a staffing issue as the food was decent and environment chill.

Super hot if you're sitting by the kitchen/fire! Very dim lighting, sets the tone but a bit hard to see. Food and drinks were alright, nothing special and didn't seem to live up to the high prices. The large charcuterie board was NOT worth $42, despite being tasty. The Bechamel sauce was super spicy, wasn't expecting that. Glad we tried it, but likely wouldn't come back as nothing blew us away which was disappointing as we came for a birthday celebration. Would have been great to have more prompt water refills (not just alcoholic drinks). Best part of the night was ordering the sticky toffee pudding- absolutely to die for!!

Relaxing ambience with a more intimate capacity. Lighting and decoration very welcoming and chic. Small menu but the food they do is delicious (I had the fish/aubergine dish- cooked perfectly). Extensive cocktail list. My husband enjoyed their sour. Would go again. Nice night out with friends

Food was okay. We had higher expectations and we were quite disappointed. If you’re spending money on a nice meal out I certainly wouldn’t spend it at Woodwork.

There wasn’t very many vegetarian options but if you eat meat and like little bar food snack type food this is your place! I liked the vibe a lot.

I really enjoyed our visit. We had not been to Woodwork in 5yrs. I like that the menu was similar to before. The food was delicious. The only thing I missed was that we had bulky bread with our Steak Tartare. I preferred the Chips, which unfortunately was told later they still had? Because I also ordered the Focaccia bread, it was bread overload. I also preferred the Whip cream to the ice cream put on the Sticky toffee pudding. Other then that it was enjoyable.

Place for cocktails and maybe a snack for sure, tartare was tasty but the mains were disappointing. Enjoyed the atmosphere but definitely just go for a few drinks/late night snack.

I've been coming here for years, actually since opening. Truthfully it's seemed to have gone downhill a bit, not sure whether it's staffing issues due to Covid but, it's was not up to the usual standard I've come to expect from the restaurant.

First time to this lovely establishment. As soon as you walk through the front door it is inviting and cozy. The simple decor gives it an upscale feel. I think the waitress may have been new, but she laughed off what she didn’t know and was very charming. The server was very attentive through our entire dining experience. The cocktail that I had was absolutely outstanding… good call from the server!! We weren’t entirely sure what we were going to get as far as a main course but when it arrived it was very tasty! The steak was done to perfection and the salad was beautifully dressed. Not smothered in dressing !! The fries were my favourite but I like salt my partner found them a little bit salty but very nicely seasoned. We saw the burgers go to another table and thought we’d have to go back another time just to experience their double stack! Overall it was a wonderful dining experience and we would go back again.

This was our first post-COVID night out, and Woodwork was a great choice. Obviously, the drinks were spectacular, including the mocktails if that's your preference, but the food was surprisingly good too. If anything the portions on the smash burger and chicken were a little too big, but we managed. The small size of the full charcuterie was very nice.

We'll definitely go back and would recommend to friends. Reservation recommended as it looked like they were turning people away.

I thought the menu would be a bit bigger, and the food was good but just a bit too charred in my opinion. The braising should let the flavour come through any charring but it wasn’t really

Had a lovely time at woodwork as they accommodated the reopening here in Edmonton. The patio experience was lovely and gave us a feeling that we were stars on our own reality tv show being the only people being served at that time. The food menu was limited sadly as they only were doing the takeout menu in restaurant at this point, however, the server gave us some free champagne to compensate for this which was a lovely touch. I’m a regular at woodwork and I’m excited to see it back in its full glory soon.

Cocktails were excellent, food also generally excellent. Happy they had outdoor seating due to covid though limited. I look forward to dining indoors there once covid is no longer a concern and will definitely get some takeout

Food and drinks were excellent. We had booked a reservation on open table but unfortunately they were overbooked at our time slot. We had to wait at the bar for several minutes while we waited for a party to leave and table to be cleaned. Our host was however quite kind and made our first drink complimentary due to the delay. Overall good experience, we would definitely return
