Delicious food, great service. They even made me custom brunch cocktails.

They sat us outside on their patio at our request - except there wasn't any shade for the table they put us at. I actually watched my husband turn red as I became increasingly uncomfortable. Side note - those metal chairs don't take long at all to heat up when you head inside to cool off a bit. YIKES! The food was delish, but I couldn't enjoy the experience as I was so uncomfortably hot. I'm sure if you're inside or under the umbrella it's different.

We arrived 30 minutes early for a 9:15 reservation and did not get seated until well after 10:00. I spoke to the hostess shortly after our reservation time had passed and was told that we would be seated shortly. Only to wait another 45 minutes. Once we were seated, the waiter, having heard about our long wait, tried to make up for it by bringing us some stale popcorn and bland deviled eggs, followed by an over salted butcher flat bread. This sad showing was followed by our entrées of over cooked scallops and beef bolognese which tasted like noodles with a garnish of poorly seasoned taco meet. The evening was finished by a serving of chalky and pasty ice cream with indiscernible flavors. I have previously dined at Woodberry Kitchen and left wanting to come back for more. After this experience, I am disappointed to say that I have no interest in dining there again. While the food left a little to be desired, I do want to say the drinks were excellent as was the service.

Woodberry Kitchen always impresses me. I love being able to sit around the fire with a drink while we wait to be seated. My only complaint is that we were seated at least 30 mins after our reservation time. But I know that it depends on how long other patrons take, so I couldn't hold that against Woodberry. The raw selection has been my favorite throughout the seasonal menu changes. And the desserts are sinfully delicious.

The food was inventive and delicious and the service was superb. HOWEVER, I can't stand when restaurants face people into a wall, and when I have to lean towards my dining partner in order to hear them. Those 2 things will stop me from returning.

Had a $150 gift card. Used part of that a while ago for brunch, which was OK but not enough food. Had 6:30p res, arrived at 6pm we were seated upstairs immediately. Server Brad great guy, very attentive. Very noisy place, menu print was very small so difficult to read (without my glasses!). Outdoor seating would have been better. Cheese on toast was excellent. I ordered goatchella on barley, with steamed chard as a side. OK, but not a good choice. Ate all of it, really full after. Should've got a big salad and a side. My date had steak - better choice. We had 3 glasses of wine and one of madeira $48 total; probably next time get a bottle or half-bottle (expensive wine list btw), a better idea. Whole meal for 2: $164 + $30 tip = $194. Pretty expensive for us. Server, waiters, water guys all very good, timely. Don't know if we'll be back for a while.

This has become one of our favorite places, not only to eat, but also just to be. We love the atmosphere & have never been disappointed with the food. We like the fact that we are able to have something different each time, being that the menus rotate depending on which fresh products are available. The food is always full of flavor. The only issue I have is with the seasoning of the fish. No matter which fish I have had, it was usually a bit too salty for me. We have great Servers on each visit. They are knowledgeable about all the items on the menu and will not steer you wrong. Then again, you could not go wrong with anything you may chose. I must also add that Woodberry Kitchen is dedicated to their customers. On the last visit, we were comped for a mishap that occurred to me on a previous visit. I did not fret about it as I knew it was an accident. Our waiter asked about it and brought us a complimentary dish, which really surprised us. They must keep good notes, which is a plus, especially for repeat customers. Overall, Woodberry Kitchen remains on our favorites list. Until next visit. . .

The food at Woodberry was excellent. We ordered the crab dip, black seabass and duck breast. Each meal was prepared very well and we could not stop raving about the taste quality and presentation. The waiter was very knowledgeable on all of the items on the menu and he gave good recommendations. This is the best restaurant that I have eaten at in the Baltimore area.

I was underwhelmed given the hype. The kale Caesar was meh. The waiter initially dropped off the wrong small dish and also had to check our order with us shortly after taking it (why can't servers write orders down anymore??). The sea bass was okay but boney and the sauce was not complimentary to the fish- just didn't go well. Best part was dessert! The strawberry shortcake was pretty amazing. All-in-all I was expecting greatness but walked away a bit disappointed.

Love the rustic, authentic ambiance and visual appearance of the outdoor dining area. I was impressed by the intense yet subtle flavors that complemented each other perfectly. The waitress had a true understanding of the menus items and where their ingredients are sourced, even though the menu changes often (we ordered from a weekend menu).

Overall the food was great, but our waitress kept trying to upsell us on every single thing we ordered, which got old pretty quickly.

We recently visited Woodberry Kitchen to celebrate my husband's birthday. As a party of five, we were seated upstairs in an uncomfortable small booth where we had to constantly lean forward to see our party to converse. The food was good but not great. The cost was on the high side. I have had a better experience on previous visits. Pretentious.

Food was good quality but majorly over salted! I was disappointed and I usually add salt to my food .... But with no salt added was too salinated all across the board. Though service / ambiance great not worth it for the need to drink water all night/next day

Woodberry Kitchen is a wonderful restaurant in Baltimore. It never disappoints with regard to the food the friendliness of staff, etc. We did have a concerning issue this time though. Our reservations were for 7:45. We arrived around 7:30 and were told that we would be seated closer to our reservation time and could have a seat outside . That's all good. I looked at my watch and it was 8:15. I went and asked how much longer our wait would be and was not given a clear answer. We ended up waiting until about 8:35 to be seated. That's excessive. The reservation scheduling needs work. Everyone was very nice and we were brought popcorn and deviled eggs to tide us over, but we came from out of town and had over an hour drive home. Had we known the wait was going to be that long, we would have went elsewhere.

Bean dip was only edible course. Terrible: fried green tomatoes, scallops. Weird "'jsalad " was actually a bowl of very salty roasted veggies. Pretentious sommelier.

delicious dinner - we shared two vegetarian dishes . we each had a glass of wine and shared a dessert. we LOVED sitting outside as dining inside is too noisy - one cannot talk easily. we do wish that an effort to baffle the sound would be under taken.

Food, sevice and locale are great! We don't care for the decor/ambiance, but I suppose many others like it. Food and drinks are expensive, but the food tastes are unique and delicious.
