Hurt by high expectations. Mostly fine, but expected a bit more by reputation. Thus all prices slightly high (breakfast, lunch). On a par with Gertrude's, maybe a little less good---and at Gertrude's there's a museum. Bad music, too loud(if you're going to play bad music, at least keep it very low). Service was excellent.
Amazing restaurant with amazing service, my second time there the second of many
Sat at the bar because the bartenders were so inviting. The ambience is phenomenal as is the service. This will be a new regular go to place whenever I’m in town.
One of the best farm to table meals in the city. Enjoyed the atmosphere and great service
Been going to Woodberry for a long time and always had a good experience but this time not so much. Service was subpar. Plus it was unbelievably loud. Never really experienced that before. I'll be back but there's way to many other options now.
Food is always better than the pretentious service staff. Get over yourselves and enjoy being one of the best restaurants in Baltimore.
Woodberry Kitchen is a kind of happening place. It is noisy and casual. Unfortunately at times the service is too casual. My friend and I asked 3 times before we got a refill for our coffee and tea. The food is very good. We arrived at 11:15 for brunch. I had the eggs in purgatory which is a baked dish of eggs in a rich tomato broth with cheese curds, served with toasted flatbread. It is on the spicy side but very good. The curds and eggs cut the spice of the sauce somewhat. My friend had the quiche. It is a mile high kind of puffy quiche not the dense low rise type. It came with a salad but no bread of any kind. We also ordered an assorted dessert platter. The assortment included a donut, coffee cake, tart and pastry. The donut was more dense than expected, the coffee cake was delicious and so was the tart. The pastry was mostly dough, little filling. We had a very enjoyable time and did not feel rushed although the server did present the bill before we asked for it.
I would have given 4 stars but I had an allergic reaction after my brunch there a few days ago. The 3 stars are not for having an allergic reaction but in the way that follow up was handled, or, more appropriately, not handled. I emailed Woodberry shortly after leaving, asking for the ingredients of the items I ordered. I had hoped to receive a prompt response or at least some concern but even after 2+ days, no response.
Absolutely outstanding as usual. The wine list and sommelier are especially good.
Woodberry Kitchen is my favorite restaurant bar none. I travel constantly and experience good food everywhere I go, and still I look forward to eating here every time I'm near Baltimore. The food is fresh, locally sourced, creative and delicious ... the cocktails are great and innovative ... the staff is very involved in the entire process ... ambience of the building and neighborhood redefines "cool". I could go on but I'm busy right now. Stop reading my review and go make a reservation.
Food was fabulous! Everything was beautiful and full of flavor. Server was outstanding and took great care of us. A sweet surprise at the end for the member of our party we were celebrating ended the night on a special note.
Too crowded, too noisy, too pretentious. Greeter should not have to make admends by comping drinks.
Lives up to the hype. Excellent invenive dishes made with local ingredients. In an age when "Farm to Table" has become meaningless they really are walking the walk. A bit pricey but ultimately worth it.
Great service with outstanding food. Highly recommend
great service great food. very creative how they made this restaurant out of old warehouse. i enjoy all their services. Oh they give something to taste for free..i know.. very nice vibe.
As always, a great visit. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE for these Open Table reservations, your follow up message should be “call if your plans have changed.” Lessens the whole value of using Open Table. Or text us with a “press 1” option. Realize your problem with no-shows but please make it easy for those of us with good show-up track records.
They take the best, freshest ingredients and whip 'em up in simple-but-elegant ways. We'll definitely be back for more.
Mother’s Day at Woodberry Kitchen - magic!
This is an excellent choice for those who like to eat healthy. Everything is fresh and local. There is a great variety of items on the menu to satisfy everyone in your party. The food was absolutely delicious!
Dined here for Mother's Day and it was phenomenal as always.
Have enjoyed both lunch and dinner at Woodberry. It never disappoints.
The food, as always, was inventive, fresh and delicious and the server was attentive and pleasant. As a vegan who does not eat animals or animal products, I count myself lucky if there is one truly vegan offering on the menu, which there was on the day of my visit. However, they could offer no cow milk substitute for my coffee. Really? In this day and age, where soy and almond milks are widely available, there is no excuse. I know Woodberry Kitchen prides itself on locally sourcing as much of their foodstuffs as they can, but I'm pretty sure the coffee didn't come from Maryland so it seems that there is some room for flexibility for plant-based milks as well.
This was my second time there. The first time I was there for dinner and decided to take my mom the four Mother's day. We both enjoyed everything about our experience. The food was awesome and the customer service even better. I'll definitely be going back.
Food and service here is amazing. However, it is very annoying that the tables are so close together upstairs that when someone gets up or you try to get to your seat you bump someone else’s table and things fall off. It so close that you are hearing every word of someone’s conversation. If you are larger than a size two you will have a hard time. If I am placed upstairs again I will not choose to eat here. It’s awkward, uncomfortable and a poor environment to spend a meal.
I've never waited 30 minutes to be seated before -- especially on a special occasion. Then it went downhill from there. Loud. Some sort of speaker over our heads blaring music. We ordered sparkling water and got tap. Our waiter did the traditional disappearing act after the main course was served. Ordering dessert felt as long as being seated. I longed to escape.
Attentive staff and delicious food. My wife and I came here based on a recommendation. We were not disappointed! Everyone was super friendly and the attention to detail was second to none!
Due to rain, the outdoor diners were moved inside and created a 50 Minute wait for our 7:15 reservation. Service went well and very loud.
The food and ambiance were great. I had been there before for brunch and I thought the dinner food was much better than the brunch. It was very crowded and loud on a Saturday night, so definitely not a place to go if you are looking for peace and quiet. We made a reservation at 7:15pm for two but were not seated until almost 8:00pm. There was a thunderstorm so they couldn't use the seats outside, which is understandable. Still, it is frustrating when one makes a reservation and then still has to wait 45 minutes for their table.
We went to the restaurant on a Saturday night and it was very crowded. We were seated right next to the pizza oven and were very hot on a hot day. Food was mediocre and prices were high. Ambiance (other than the hot seat we had) and service would pretty good.
Love this place. Have been dining here since opening years back. Farm fresh food from local farms is great. Can’t say enough about the food and service.
Great place for local comfort food and old industrial location. Had reservations for mom's day brunch, but we waited an additional 30+ minutes for a seat-- even though there was seating available. The hostess was dismissive toward us-- maybe due to it being mom's day brunch? i wasn't impressed by that attitude, luckily our female server who was was a smart chef from LA-- proved to be nimble, and friendly which made up for the mishap upon our arrival. Food was great, but very expensive. Alcoholic beverages were yummy but lacked spirits!
Very simply.....excellent food and excellent service. The appetizers, entree, and dessert were delicious. Our waitress was very knowledgeable, attentive, and polite.
Cool location. Very expensive for what you get. Was once one of my favorites, but now the food is just not worth it.
Wonderful weekend brunch spot!
Excellent local menu.
Just a fabulous outdoor brunch. Couldn’t have had better food, and the atmosphere was delightful
Super knowledgeable wine staff!!
The food was excellent and our servers knowledge of the menu was outstanding. I wish I remembered her name because the way she navigated my parents thru the menu was quite impressive.
Everything was amazing! Food, service, atmosphere. Highly recommend.
