Woodberry Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Overall good experience - but don't expect to get a regular cocktail. Woodberry only serves organic beverages made in the U.S. No specialty juices if the fruit isn't grown in the U.S. or in season. Only U.S. distilled alcohol .... Soft Shell Crabs were delicious and oysters were very good as well! Even though we had a reservation, we had to wait 45 minutes for a table. Would rate it a 5 out of 10.
I like Woodberry Kitchen but I've had mixed experiences in the past. Last week, my husband and I went there for my birthday. He had the steak and I had the chicken, and both dishes were excellent. Then they delivered the dessert menu. We chose to share their hot fudge toasted marshallow sundae, which comes with "wet peanuts." Before ordering, I asked our server if we could have it without peanuts. He said absolutely, as they hear many requests for the non-peanut version. The sundae came and we were dipping our long spoons in the large sundae dish in order to reach the various ingredients. I took a couple of bites, and discovered I had a mouthful of peanuts! I removed as many as I could and ate around the dessert, but frankly, I was appalled. Luckily I don't have a peanut allergy, but if I did, I would have been in serious trouble. When the waiter came back, I informed him of the mistake. He apologized and then went to get our check. He immediately came back, apologized again and disappeared. Much to my surprise--the sundae was still listed on our bill. My husband paid it but now I regret leaving without saying something to a manager. The kitchen and the server both dropped the ball on this one and it really is unacceptable that an upscale restaurant like WK would charge you for a dessert that you actually didn't order, as well as potentially put someone's health at risk. I'm still shaking my head over this one.
I used Open Table to make the reservation - which was easy. I included instructions for what we were celebrating. The staff was very accomodating to all of our requests. My guests LOVED the experience - the exquiste food, fine drinks, and the unique atmosphere. The evening was a huge hit for our two day celebration of my son's Medical School graduation. I will definitely return in future - and I live two hours away in West Virginia! Well done Woodberry Kitchen.
Excellent food but terrible service. After waiting 25 minutes for our reserved table and quickly ordering, we waited over half an hour to be served our entrees after having our salad. After commenting on our wait having been told "just a few more minutes" several times, we were given a bowl of WK's signature popcorn. Really? What about a free glass of wine that also took an exceptionally long time to serve! Be prepared for slow service and you will love your food.
We had five in our party and our entrees came out at different times, the last guy got his dish a good 5 minutes later than the first dish. One guy ordered Crab Cakes and his plate came with out the cake and a server brought it out about 45 seconds later. Our server didn't inquire or offer an explanation just played it off like it was no big deal....disappointing!!
We only go to Woodberry Kitchen for special occasions because it's fairly expensive and requires a reservation well in advance. This was one of those special occasions, our 20th anniversary. The atmosphere was great, our waitress was great, the food was tremendous but there were a couple problems. The waitress couldn't answer my wife's question about a wine she was interested in so she said she would get the answer for us. I wanted to wait until she got her wine before I ordered my beer so we didn't order anything at that time. For the next 10 mins we saw the waitress walking around the dining room waiting on other tables and serving other diners. I was wondering when she was going to get back to my wife with the answer to her question. She finally came back to the table and asked if anyone had come by to answer the wine question. I realized she wasn't going to answer the question, the sommelier was supposed to come by the table to answer the question. She got the sommelier, he came by and we ordered our wine/beer but by this time we'd been in the restaurant at least 15 mins before we ordered anything. The bread was actually brought to the table before we had a chance to order our drinks. Later, when we were waiting for our entrees 3 different people came to the table to apologize for our food taking so long. I didn't realize it had been that long but realized when they started to apologize for it that we'd been in the restaurant for well over an hour before we got our food. The rest of the night went kind of the same way and we were in the restaurant for almost 3 hours, although we did order dessert and coffee. I'm not sure what the problem was, I assume the kitchen was backed up because our waitress seemed very efficient. Other than this, everything was really good.
A lovely experience from start to finish! I received this restaurant as a recommendation from a former local when I was traveling here on business. The food was very fresh & delicious. Ambiance was charming. And the service was customer focused from the moment we were greeted by the hostess. Highly recommend to others.
I travel constantly throughout the US and Europe, and Woodberry Kitchen remains my favorite restaurant. From the food and wine, to the highly engaged staff and incredible ambience it's an incredible experience every time. Special thanks to the owner Spike for what he has created!
Food was good as usual.Service was good, but you can really feel that they were busy. Went to the restaurant for Mother's day brunch. place was packed and restaurant was really behind for their reservations. However, if you check open table there were a lot of slots available. I think this needs to be corrected in the future. otherwise, as expected liked the visit.
Loved, loved the grilled oysters! Raw beef and chicken liver pate excellent. My monkfish was too salty and it was sent back. Server and chef both very nice and apologetic about that. They made new plate and took it off my check. Mother's day treat was free sorbet and candied strawberry. Overall experience was excellent. Service amazing.
We've been going to Woodberry Kitchen for close to 10 years and it never disappoints! The warm asparagus and ramp broth with ricotta dumplings was fabulous! And we always love the chicken liver appetizer. I always tell friends this is my favorite restaurant in the Baltimore area!
We have been here several times; this was the first occasion on which the service left something to be desired. We were a table of four: my wife and I plus another couple. Not just once but twice, our orders arrived while the other couple got nothing. This went on for probably half an hour. When finally I caught our waiters eye and announced what should have been obvious -- "our friends have no food!" he sent some other guy over to ask what our problem was; that guy declared a "misunderstanding." The waiter reappeared a few minutes later and said the rest of the food would be "right out" -- which it wasn't. It was at least ten minutes and another false reassurance from the waiter before our friends' orders appeared. At no time was there an apology from anyone. That's what bothers me the most.
As a long time fan of Woodberry Kitchen who has recently adopted a vegan lifestyle, I wanted to offer some feedback on my visit this past weekend for brunch. I was there for Mother's Day with three other family members, two of whom are mostly vegan as well. I talked to the server about vegan options and while she was knowledgable about which items were vegan, when it came down to it, there were not a whole lot of options. I ended up with the Spring Lettuces (with oil and vinegar instead of buttermilk dressing) and the Gold Potato Hash Brown (without the honey). Both were excellent, but it would have been nice to have more variety, and perhaps the option of something from the griddle/bakery.
The world is moving toward increased plant-based eating, and I tend to eat most often at those places that embrace this way of eating and offer lots of options. It would be really great to see more variety at Woodberry Kitchen, which is undeniably a superb restaurant and a leader in the restaurant world
I have been to Woodbury kitchen many times and normally I would rate all of the categories as a 5... this time we were a little disappointed. The food was only ok, unfortunately. We got the breakfast flatbread, the beaus breakfast and the soft shell Benedict, which was the best dish of them all except the eggs were more hard boiled and not poached. The eggs on the flatbread were hard boiled as well. I just wanted to mention and bring to light the over cooked eggs which I don't think the cook was aware of - it was slammed for Mother's Day brunch. But thank you for always being a great place to go.
