The hostess was very friendly and agreeable. We told her we wanted to be able to have a conversation so she seated us in a quieter dining area. Our server was very friendly. We ordered different dishes so we could all sample, she was very accommodating with utensils, etc. Food was delicious. The only complaint would be that the server should know what is in a dish. I asked what a particular vegetable was and she didn't know. Didn't offer to find out. Otherwise, perfect experience.
Exceptional. The food was delicious. From the red leaf salad, which was crispy fresh, to the cheese flight to the entree both unique, it was special. The service was perfect, attentive but not rushed, friendly but not obsequious. The deserts were delightful.
We went to Woodberry Kitchen to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We had dined there before and were excited to make the reservations for our special celebration. I was disappointed, however, in the entree - angel hair pasta with crab. The sauce was lemony & tart -- savory -- but not at all what I thought I had ordered or what seemed to be described. I was also uncomfortably cold the entire meal. We were seated upstairs with a constant breeze from giant overhead fans. The wait staff obviously knew it was an issue -- when they brought out the B-Day ice cream with a candle for a birthday dessert, they served it within a glass wind shield. I urged my daughter to quickly make her wish and blow out the candle -- before it was snuffed out. On the positive side, the wait staff was very attentive and personable, and we enjoyed the appetizers of fresh oysters and crab dip. But I think next time we'll dine somewhere else.
Fun place. Food was a little slow getting to the table but we received a bonus penny pie while we waited. The food was definitely worth the wait. One of the best meals we have had in a long time.
Great food and excellent service. Very friendly staff.
We arrived before our RESERVATION and multiple couples who came after us were seated before us some without reservations. After 15 minutes of waiting, it was as if the hostess tempered we were there and then we see the hostess talk to another waitress to see if she can find any open tables. We get ushered upstairs to a make shift table shoved between two large parties without even enough room to get to our seat. We left. It was terrible.
The crab pot was amazing, as were the roasted oysters. We loved the chicken and (GF) biscuits entree best. Our server was exceptional, and made the evening special.
Livingston our server was interesting gave us great service
Waiter very attentive and ready to explain everything
Woodberry is an outstanding experience in the Baltimore-Washington region. I travelled from DC to visit this restaurant on three occasions. The service is at tentative and engaging. And, the adaptive reuse of building creates a unique setting.
Great ambience, service was excellent. Food flavors perhaps could improve especially when priced so high.
The food was great as always. The flavors are unique and simple. Our waiter was super friendly even with us being silly and indecisive. Overall great experience. Only minor minus was the wait ro seat us even with a reservation. We waited about 15-20 minutes.
Wonderful service. Great combination of tastes to make unique selections stand out
Great food and service
Our second time at Woodberry. Waitress was very attentive throughout the meal. I got the tavern steak medium rare which was cooked appropriately. My boyfriend got the pork and rigatoni. Both entrees were good, but not spectacular. We went on a Wednesday night and the restaurant was quite crowded so the noise level overall was pretty loud. I would visit again but only for the next special occasion.
This restaurant was amazing. I am a picky eater and the waitress was very kind and worked with the Chef to mix and match the entree's to fit my needs. I have never had catfish so moist and the appetizer/ dessert was amazing as well. If you need a place to go for a special occasion or just want a really nice night out, go to the Woodberry Kitchen!!!!!!!
My husband and I went for our anniversary. It was a great atmosphere and the food was fresh and delicious.
A bit ooo hipster artisanal for me but overall not bad.
Ordinary - not worth the hype. Meals are rudimentary and overpriced. My entree came out burnt which affected the overall flavor. Coffee was good but they only carry full dairy milk (surprising). Restaurant was noisy, but that was not surprising given the popular reputation. Overall, there are much better dining options in the area in better locations, with better food quality, and better pricing. Would not recommend. Will not return.
Gerome was an amazing server - personable and delightful! I always love it here
Amazing! It started with the friendly hostess. The drinks at the bar started things right. When we say down we were introduced to a friendly and knowledgeable server, Amy. The food was excellent and we were able to share how much we loved the night with the General manager Virginia, who came to our table more than once to see how things were going. I can’t wait to visit again!
Great energy and terrific food. Waitstaff extremely knowledgeable and friendly!!!
Brunch was wonderful!
Fantastic food, service was slow for brunch. Initial order was taken and food brought quickly; waited 40 minutes with empty glasses to order main course and were asked if we were ready for dessert. Then kitchen was rushed because brunch was ending and our eggs were served with raw, runny whites. Service made up for the kitchen gaffes.
Heard so much about Woodberry Kitchen that we brought out of town guests for Sat brunch. I was so impressed that I came back the following Sat with friends for brunch. Loved the atmosphere, location, service, tea and coffee, and menu. Very impressed!!
Never a disappointment! Great food, service and atmosphere. Favorite restaurant!
We thoroughly enjoyed my birthday dinner here Friday night. The food was delishious, the service exceptional, the atmosphere charming. Highly recommend!!
Great Atmosphere; fresh foods; good service; need more vegetarian/ vegan options.
I've seen mixed reviews online, and heard mixed reviews from friends/family for Woodberry Kitchen but it came up as one of the top restaurants in Baltimore so we gave it a shot. First time visit and it was a huge disappointment. The atmosphere was great, and the customer service was nice. We enjoy "different tastes", however, this place is way overpriced. $15. for THREE bite-sized tortellini apps, $8. for THREE bite-sized smoked "rockies" which were served frozen. They did replace them but it was disappointing, as if they came out of a frozen bag and not made fresh. We sampled the lamb flatbread which was nothing to write home about. We both had the "chicken & bisquit" which we didn't even finish because it was bland, and the bisquit was hard. Then when dessert came - - - literally a tiny scoop the size of a golf ball. We each had one glass of wine. For all of that, $160 bucks. Not sure what all the hype is about but we won't be returning. We are not picky eaters, and we typically always enjoy any dining experience. Other than the customer service and attentiveness of the staff, I wouldn't recommend it.
Have visited 15-20 times as one of Baltimore’s finer restaurants but have found it to become less value with an esoteric menu compared to its competitors in Hamden. Too pricey for what it offers.
Wonderful and unique food, Herbivore or Carnivore. Great service and atmosphere. Loved everything about it.
The fish is so delicious a little pricey but worth it. Their cocktails are awesome. Again pricey! But I’ll go over and over lol!!
We had to wait 30 minutes for our table and there was a long line of people against the wall also waiting. The food was outstanding, but would not return knowing the long wait.
Good as always. Please bring back the chocolate pudding and de-constructed carrot cake.
Excellent in every way.
The experience was awesome! The baked oysters, chicken and biscuit, apple tart, rhubarb, persimmons, and ginger sorbets were delightful. The local beer selection was grand. Our waiter was beyond amazing and so passionate about the restaurant. The ambience added to the food and service. We can't wait to return. Did I mention the bread?!?! The meatballs and ricotta cheese were light as a feather with homemade tomato sauce from summer tomatoes. Their food is nutritious and delicious. So what are you waiting for???
The service was exceptional. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful. It is clear that the restaurant employees work well together as a team.
Everything I ordered was delicious - entree: rockfish with rice and cabbage. it had an Asian flair that was done well; appetizer: oysters on the half shell with a variety of toppings; cocktail: dreamcatcher which was very aromatic.
My companion's meal was not as great - ham hock soup was too salty and pork chop was on the tougher side.
The shining star of the meal was the dessert! Sorghum toffee cake and 3 scoops of ice cream (flavors: fresh cream, toasted oat, and persimmon sorbet). We haven't tried sorghum before, but the cake had a very malty, almost molasses like flavor. The toasted oat ice cream was unique and nutty; the persimmon sorbet was true to the fruit, without being overpoweringly sweet.
My wife & I recently enjoyed WK for the third time, on this occasion to celebrate our joint birthday. Our dessert was tastefully accompanied by a candle & note beautifully written in chocolate sauce! We'll keep coming back, even for non-occasions.
Great experience, wonderful food and service
Most of us were very pleased with our menu selections. Our server was attentive but didn't hover. The one true NEGATIVE in the afternoon was our inability to dodge sun glare. This lovely space needs window coverings on those upper exspanses of glass. Brutal.
