Woodberry Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
I made reservations to celebration my Fiancé's birthday. After we were seated, we were greeted by two different waiters, one who took our drink order. Our drinks were delivered by the bartender/runner. We waited for over 20 minutes before flagging down the manager as out waiter(s) never returned to the table after taking out drink order. There were tables that were seated and orders taken after ours. The manager took our order and the runner gave us our food. The waiter finally made an appearance again after we had finished our meal. I thought there would have been some type of dessert for my Fiancé's birthday (hence why we came) but there was nothing done. Even though the food was outstanding, I am not sure I would return due to the service especially after spending over $100 on brunch.
Everything from the service to the food was amazing. The staff was knowledgeable and experienced. The service was impeccable. They showed us respect and love as a fellow industry couple that were out for a nice dinner. The spot itself is beautiful and inviting to eat. Everything was superb and we will make the drive from D.C. again to eat the things we didn't try in the menu. I also have to mention the composition if the menu is exquisite. The way they give you so many avenues to eat so much delicious food is so well done.

Always a great menu at Woodberry Kitchen, aside from the amazing atmosphere can I say how awesome the service is here?! Every visit has felt like a dinner among friends and I’m always planning my next meal here before I leave. The wheatberries-out-the-oven is a wholesome vegan dish that was perfect with their homemade snake oil hot sauce. Complimentary valet is great too, they even brought our vehicle to us at the side entrance and Israel came and met us at our table and escorted us out because we had a wheelchair with us this time. Thanks again, we'll be back soon
We had a 7:30 p.m
reservation (made two weeks in advance) and showed up at 7:00 p.m. and did not get seated until 9:00 p.m. the staff did all they could to make our experience better but the restaurant was overwhelmed and did not have the capacity to handle the volume of customers they try to serve. Service at the bar was extremely slow as well. The two bartenders could not keep up with the volume of customers.
The food ranged from good to great but the din was incredible so we couldn't have a conversation. The staff looked as if they came off the street. Not a pleasant experience. I don't understand why it's so popular - it was very busy on a week night. My foodie girlfriend from Manhattan thought the Tilghman Island crock pot was excellent, and I agreed. The softshell crab was small but good. The salad was average as was the crab soup. We had been told that upstairs was quieter but when we went there afterwards we didn't see much difference.
This was my first time. The location, atmosphere and beauty of the restaurant is unquestionable. The attention to detail, such as noise reduction ceiling panels, was also excellent. Service was slow. We had an 8:45 pm reservation for a birthday celebration. With all the loveliness around we were seated upstairs with 2 of our party of 4 facing a brick wall. We asked about sitting elsewhere but the wait was another hour. Yes, other people were facing the wall as well and seemed happy...maybe it's just me but view is important. The appetizer arrived at 10:00....one hour and 15 minutes after we sat down. Someone came to apologize for the lateness of the food but never offered a drink or dessert or whatever. We had a dozen oysters which were good but nothing exceptional. Our food arrived shortly thereafter and everything was OK but nothing exceptional. I had the clams with egg noodle dish. The first bite was cold and I was disappointed. As I dug down though, it was hot underneath. We ordered one dessert for the birthday boy and got a very small piece of Paw Paw pie. Very small. The people were gracious and as I said, the atmosphere (minus the brick wall) beautiful but it was overall average.
Our party of five arrived early for our 5 o’clock reservation. Since five is the opening for dinner on Saturday we were led into a nearly empty restaurant. In spite of it being nearly empty we were initially led to a table beside an obviously busy walkway. We requested a better choice out of the many available and were accommodated. Service was otherwise adequate and we all enjoyed our food. We thought the prices were a bit high but since the place was packed by the time we finished our meal, I suppose the neighborhood supports that level.
this is one of our favorite places. However, on this visit, we were seated at a very cramped ,
uncomfortable table. In the past we have loved every bite of the food, but on this evening, there
was too much salt on everything. I had asked the waiter to make sure our next dish was without all of the added topping of salt , but received the vegetable so salty it was truly difficult to eat.
I think we will visit again, but have to remember to ask for no added salt, it was very intense.
I will also have to remember to ask to be seated upstairs, in the side room or outside.
Had been looking forward to getting to Woodberry Kitchen for some time, and was underwhelmed. The space is wonderful and the general feel is comfortable and relaxing. But the service was pretentious and the menu seemed to have been written in a manner that intended to be clever but came across as superior. The food was not the remarkable experience I had read about, and that was disappointing, especially at the price point.
We went to Woodberry Kitchen for our Anniversary. Although it was a Wednesday evening, it was still packed, which we usually take as a good sign. The ambiance had an open/airy, upscale rustic feel. If it were a little warmer we would have sat outside. Our server was very knowledgeable and had great recommendations on everything from wines to desserts. By the way we had their apple sorbet for dessert. It was delish, just like the appetizers and entrees. We are planning to go back soon.
Very disappointed in our meal. We ordered fresh shucked oysters. They were so small, not worth the price. We ordered an array of different dishes to share. The crab bowl had very little crab in it though the flavor was good. Other selections were ok. Salads were good. Our waiter was great at explaining all the drink and food options but would disappear for stretches of time. We had to order more drinks from the hostess. We did have to wait quite some time to get our check and once we received it, our waiter again was lost somewhere. Our meal was extended longer than what we wanted. We sat for more than 10 minutes waiting for him to return. We paid in cash and waited for him as we wanted to be sure he received the $.
This place was great! I took my fiancé for his birthday it was our first time. Service was promp food was perfect. When it came time to leave we had leftovers to be boxed up that got lost some how. Our waitress assured us this never happens and made up for it with a brand new meal strawberry jam and their multi grain sourdough bread. My fiancé had a full meal for work the next day! That's a good Birthday!
I made a reservation at Woodberry after reading an article on Eater about one of the chefs there. I'll start by saying the food was excellent. My girlfriend and I were visiting from NYC and I would rate their food on par with many NYC restaurants. We had the Deviled Eggs, Chopped Salad with Fried Scrapple with a delicious buttermilk dressing and split the BBQ Quail with Grits. My girlfriend is from the south and she can attest that the grits were on point. Also not to be overlooked was the great cocktail menu which had many great options and was thoughtfully organized. I had the 2nd Amendment which was a delicious well balanced Rye based cocktail with many interesting elements to keep your taste buds entertained. The also had a mead flight which was a great introduction to mead for anyone who hasn't tried it before and I was pleased to see it on the menu. We finished the meal with a Paw Paw dessert which was a delicious and tasteful adventure into a new fruit that I was surprised to learn that its indigenous to North America followed by the most delicious coffee I've ever had at a restaurant that's not a coffee shop. The ambiance of the restaurant was warm and tastefully industrial. Embodying the architecture of the building and the surrounding area. The outdoor space with the fire place was warm and cozy too. The only down side was slightly slow service which left us waiting for bread after getting our appetizers and waiting much longer for our dessert after we had finished our meal. All in all it was a good experience and the food/drinks certainly warrant another visit.
Not one of my favorite times, group of 8 for brunch presented with two tables at different heights leaving two in party with uneven plates. Hostess seemed a little put out when asked to trade out table of same height. We had reservations, were there at 10:15, many empty tables around us at that time. It was an easy fixed but it was like WTW!
Food a disappointment for me, City eggs and ham just warm, ham chewy and overcooked, english muffin didn't add a thing to the taste. Pastries excellent, flatbreads good, fried green tomatoes excellent. Waitress good. I drive from out of state and often come here with my family for special occasions.Overall OK, I'm just not feeling the specialness that I once did.
This was a fun dining experience and both my friend and I found it a real treat to eat at this restaurant. There was free valet parking, little wait time for our table and they had to change where they originally planned to seat us because of the bright sunlight. I have migraines and the sunlight would have possibly caused a headache but they were very understanding and accommodating. The menu was not printed yet for the day but they got our drinks while we awaited the menus. My friend and I both decided on the spelt crusted quiche with city ham, zucchini, cheddar cheese, and leeks. This was served with a side salad with a pepper and honey dressing. Our quiche was taking a while and so they gave use an apple pop tart like pastry which was delicious. My friend does not like pastry but she loved this. Then our meal came and was excellent. That had to be the fluffiest quiche that I have ever had. It was very savory and was wonderful with the peppery and sweet salad. We also decided on getting a donut to split and it was heavenly (they are famous for these) and I could taste the yeast, butter, flour, graham cracker sprinkles and maple drizzle. The only thing I did not like was the coffee. It was a 1.5 cup french press with raw sugar and unhomogenized cream, but it was the coffee. It was very acidic, almost sour. The waitress saw that I did not drink it, inquired about it, concurred, and took it off the bill, which I appreciated. Service was excellent, we did not want for a thing. I will certainly go back!
We came in for an anniversary dinner and had an amazing time. Our waitress was top notch. She explained to us that the apps are like tapas and recommended we try 3. We did and she perfectly timed their arrival with the kitchen so we only had one at a time. We ordered a bottle of a wine and the sommelier told the whole story of the vineyard and wine- that was really cool. Our entrees were amazing and we stayed for dessert and coffee. The kitchen wrote happy anniversary on the plate- really nice touch. I cannot imagine celebrate our first wedding anniversary in a better fashion. Thank you!
Two of my daughters have been to Woodberry Kitchen and highly recommended it. My husband, friends and I were in town for only one night and knew we wanted to go. We had a wonderful dinner. The chicken was so tender and delicious. We loved the lively atmosphere and beautiful venue. We would definitely go again!!
