Woolley's Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Even though the did not find my reservation or recognize my name, the accommodated us and we had great service and food. A night to remember, especially when after writing Open Table that the restaurant could not find my reservation, I was notified I was a 'No Show'. No worries, its all good
Our server was absoluley fantastic!
Smiling the whole time and we had a group of 17. He made our little family reunion so much more pleasant .
The other staff who assisted were also efficient and kind .
The food was good and we meet in this location at least once a year as family flys in town!
Our Father's Day evening dinner was fine, EXCEPT for the overdone $35.00 Rib Eye steak. 1/2 of the steak was just fine, ordered medium rare, but the other end was approaching well done. I had expected an offer of a reduced price from the waitress, but that was not forthcoming. Unfortunately, my wife picked up the check, or my displeasure would have been reflected in the size of the tip. We dine at Woolley's occasionally, especially for special occasions, and expect a better experience.
We were celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary and had called to tell them and emailed. The restaurant didn't say or do anything until we mentioned. There were only four tables and the rest of the tables were empty. Food was pretty bland and not worth the money. Waiter was fair. Overall, I would not recommend.
This location is perfect for Mother's Day Brunch. This was our second time in 8 years at the Mothers Day Brunch Buffet. Both times we were more than pleased. There was plenty of food and high value food like oysters in the half shell, prime rib, and smoked salmon to name a few. The food looked fresh, appetizing and always full.
Their Brunch area is in an arboretum, so it has all the aesthetics of being on an outdoor patio without the blasting sun, wind or bugs. We were not rushed at all, we were there for almost 2.5 hrs. Plus our coffee and mimosas were never empty.
We have been to a number of brunches, including Thanksgiving and Easter. This one was for Mothers Day. I thought that it would of been nice for each mother get a rose, or at least a little more pampered. I thougot the price was high for the brunch. Thought the selection at Thanksgiving was better. Maybe add a Bloody Mary Bar too?
I think it would be incredibly difficult to maintain a high quality restaurant in a busy hotel. I'm sure they get it right many times but on our occasion they just didn't put it together. Service was a little slow as the waitress was probably over assigned by the hostess, kitchen got my dates steak right, mine was just over done from what I ordered, the potatoes were spot on though. Like I said, it has to be difficult and they were close but they just didn't close the deal.
We've been here several times. Service is typically on the slower side, but we keep coming back for the food. This time, however, it was not so good. We were a party of 6. 4 of us ordered steak and 2 of them came out dry as a bone and shriveled. I couldn't believe they served it! Our service seemed exceptionally slow this time as well. We waited close to 10 minutes once seated to even have our drink order taken, and the wait for our food was forever. I'm not sure I'll return. I was super disappointed as we had brought out of town guests and it was our suggested place.
The restaurant is in an open atrium that is pretty loud especially when it's happy hour in the hotel bar. The food was ok. Our split steak was over charred and there was no way it was the advertised 16ounces. The side of Brussel sprouts were raw to the point where I sent them back for more cooking. Unfortunately they came back still under done and we couldn't eat them. The Caesar salad was awesome with great taste and the best croutons! The scallop potatoes were wonder also!! Highly recommend them! Wine was pricey for their cheapest red but we got a brand we lived. Since I didn't have my veggies a Creme brûlée was a must! That was excellent!! So again the Food was ok overall but well overpriced. Not sure we'd go back for the value of a split meal being over $100. The lovely waitress gave us great service and even credited us for the Brussel Sprouts but we were still close to $100. If the main part of the meal was better it may have saved the meal but with just ok protein and raw veggies we were left slightly disappointed.
The location, across the street from the National Cemetary, is what prompted our family to choose Wooleys for a luncheon after the Cemetary Service. The open, fresh with plants environment is cheerful and uplifting. The service is very slow -- took a long time to get food -- but we weren't in a hurry so that was OK.
Very bad experience all around. From what I've read, its really good or really bad. Guess the risk is up to you. I won't be going back ever nor will I offer Embassy Suites any business going forward based on this experience. At least have a chef that knows how to cook...C'Mon man.
Pleasantly surprised! Located in the Embassy Suites MOA, we booked on Saturday night and not only received an excellent meal, but pleasant, professional service. My husband deemed his filet one of the best he's ever had, and my special was excellent: sirloin, polenta and vegetables. Manager checked in on all the diners, which is appreciated. Cocktail prices very reasonable, and meal prices on par or less than most other steakhouses in the area. Locals, don't discount Wooley's because it's in a hotel!
French onion beef tips appetizer was amazing and it was the first time in a long time where everything start to finish was great! Seating is within the hotels atrium so it's not your typical dining environment but it doesn't take away from the experience. Will definitely be back.
We went to Woolley's for our 34th wedding anniversary and everything was perfect! Not only was our table ready, but the flowers my husband ordered were already there and everyone who greeted us wished us "happy anniversary". It was a great start to what was a perfect evening - a wonderful bottle of wine, great food with superb service. Highly recommend this for dining anytime, but truly a special occasion brings out the best in all that Woolley's team does. Thank you so much!
We totally enjoyed our New Year's Eve dining at Wooley's. The food was excellent and we had a nice booth, which was semi-secluded. We could talk without having to talk above loud noise. Our waiter was great. Our only complaint was that they didn't offer the steak and lobster combo special which we had last year. That was a great deal. Hopefully, they will offer it again.
It would also be nice if they offered valet parking, since it was vey difficult to find a parking space..Everyone loved the food they ordered. Thank you.
We love Wooley's! It is the best Steakhouse in the area ib our opinion. We have been for our anniversary and they ended our meal with a complimentary cake. It was a wonderful surprise and very tasty. This last visit was for the New Year celebration. Therr was a special menu for the evening featuring a 16 oz lobster tail or a tomahawk steak with a complimentary bottle of wine. Everything was delicious! This is a must visit.
Woolley's is a special place for dining in a lush green environment. The holiday brunches are our favorite - an amazing experience and good value. Our food this time, ordering off the menu, was good but not great. Loaded baked potato was not hot, broccolini was too firm to eat, service was slow and needed to get our server's attention. Still we enjoyed our experience and will definitely be back for Mother's Day brunch!
This is a late entry. But yes, we very much enjoyed Thanksgiving Brunch! We had enjoyed it the previous year and looked forward to coming back again. Once again, it was delicious, wonderful food and beverage selection, and nicely presented. Great server. Like the tropical atmosphere on a late-November day. Thank you! We look forward to hopefully coming back next Thanksgiving!
