Woodberry Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
I want to be in love with this restaurant because if it's farm to table mission, but at the end of the day I am consistently left disappointed with the food. The oyster sauces were not that appetizing and the homemade cocktail sauce had a strange taste. For my entree, I received steak that was not at the proper temperature. The only enjoyable food was the deep fat fried asparagus. Of course it is hard to mess up deep fat frying.
Our server was amazing and all of the servers worked well as a team. That part of the evening was world class.
And the end of the day it was another disappointing visit to Woodberry Kitchen.
We came here for our 8-year anniversary and had such a good time! The food was absolutely delicious. We had been here for the first time a few weeks ago, and I think the menu had already changed since then. The cocktails were soo good and refreshing!
We love how the entire wait staff comes around and takes care of us. Someone who had come by to drop off an appetizer asked if we needed another round of cocktails, and passed it onto our server.
Our server had forgotten about some oysters that we had ordered, which was fine, because it turned out we didn't need them anyways.
We will be back!
Woodbury Kitchen never disappoints. It is one of my very favorite restaurants, between the freshest food you'll get, the creative cocktails and the knowledgeable staff. I took my friend who had just returned from serving in Afghanistan and he was blown away that such a gem exists in Baltimore; he also ordered about half the menu and ate it all - thanks for helping me convince him that this city has a fantastic food scence, starting with your restaurant!
This was our first bad experience at Woodberry. We were there for Easter brunch and it took an hour and a half to get our meals. Not good especially with two very hungry kids. I have loved this place in the past for dinners, so I'm just treating this as a fluke, but my visitors were not impressed with the food or service.
The rustic and cozy ambiance is what grabs your attention at first, but then the welcoming service and delicious food is what keeps you there. The knowledgeable staff and menu reflexive of the season and surrounding farms make this experience worth every moment.
Bad wine. We ended up trying three different wine and they were all bad. Tastes as if they were exposed to warm temperature. When we brought up that to wait staff, they treated us as we don't know.
The waitress was bad. She recommended the "amazing" wine that she didn't remember later on.
Just one fish dish on Good Friday.
Two entrees that we ordered were so salty.
We would never go back.
Our second time at Woodberry Kitchen and it did not disappoint! The waiter was very attentive and accommodating as we had special eating conditions. Everything tasted even better than expected - appetizer, entrée, dessert - all superb! We will definitely be coming back again.
Woodbury Kitchen is the perfect example of how to be a truly great restaurant requires more than just great food. We were in town for the weekend and decided to try out Woodbury for dinner before heading back. We arrived on time for our reservation and we warmly greeted by the reception staff - as they were running a bit behind - we were told there would be a wait for our table. As they were jam-packed and we had only made reservations the day of - this was absolutely not a problem for us, we happily waited at the bar and enjoyed a few drinks. After about 30 minutes - we were escorted to our table - this is where the evening took a turn. Our waiter was clearly annoyed with the late seating (again, we would gladly have sat at our reservation time as we also had a 3 hour drive back home) and did all he could to make us feel like a nuisance standing in his way of leaving for the evening. Our orders were rushed and our plates grabbed the second we put our forks down to take a quick break in between bites - towards the end - I was even asked for our dessert order before my boyfriend had even had a chance to see the menus (he was in the restroom). At no point did anyone check to see how our food was (excellent by the way) - only to see whether they could move us along a bit quicker. Between the surly attitude and the rushed service, we felt incredibly uncomfortable and were eager to settle up and leave as quickly as possible. Being out of town, our card had been flagged and frozen for "suspicious activity" without our knowledge - the waiter came back and loudly announced that our card had been declined (loud enough for the adjacent table to hear). We quickly presented another card and made a beeline for the exit. It's a shame that what could have been a wonderful experience was overshadowed by such poor service. What is the point of investing so much time and effort in the menu and design of the space without ensuring that the service is of the same quality?
I made a reservation for 7:15 five days ahead of the actual date. We arrived at 7:15pm and were not seated until 7:45pm... YUP. We were there to celebrate a birthday. A special occasion. We finally got seated and I believe the manager sat us and asked for our water preference. We said still water was fine and waited for our water and waited for our water some more...YUP 15 min later we were actually greeted by our waiter and he brought water. He didn't share any specials, he didn't really answer any questions in detail about the dishes we asked him about. He also suggested we knew what things already were? Also, when I said I had a question he said "yeah, what's up". I've never had someone serving me ask what was up, especially at an expensive restaurant before. The service was just okay. Nothing special at all.
The food was fresh. The waiter finally took our order around 8:20pm and it didn't come out until 8:50pm.It was okay :/ must of been a bad night to go? It was my first time and my guests choice for her birthday dinner. I surprised her and brought her to Woodberry. Timing was so terrible. We didn't leave until 9:45pm. This place will never be my first choice because of my experience.
Our service was uncharacteristically bad this visit and I discovered today the entree of my companion was overcooked. There were so many people waiting on us that nothing was accomplished. Our appetizer bakery item was not delivered before the meal was served, so we cancelled it with the food runner. Then two separate servers tried to serve it to us. We asked for a replacement napkin when our entrees came that was never replaced. A coffee was delivered after we had completed dessert. I have always raved about Woodberry Kitchen and could not wait for an occasion to revisit. My recent experience has unfortunately dampened my enthusiasm
From the moment a cheerful female called to confirm the reservation and asked if we had a special occasion, to the ambience, service, food and the special happy birthday dessert for my daughter, it was everything I heard it was and more. Will definitely be back!
Awesome atmosphere. Food was very good and the server & kitchen were very accommodating to my girlfriend's relatively picky and unadventurous palate - although I couldn't tell if he was being snarky about it at times. My dinner was based around the oyster stew and scallops. On my return I would try out some of the butcher centric items on the menu. Cocktails were awesome! Overall, I would def. return to this restaurant and highly recommend it to others.
