Woodberry Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

I love this restaurant. However, I miss the old version of the CMP- the hard sugar on the top looks cool but it gets in the way of the toasted marshmallow and doesn't taste that great. Nix the hard sugar top. Aside from that- awesome as usual!!

I ordered the Turkey Pot Pie. I was a bit disappointed. The flavor was nice, but with the puff pasty on top instead of using a pie crust the insides were dry by the time my order came out. My boyfriend order the Chicken and a biscuit which was delicious. He had some au jus or chicken broth on his plate from it that I poured into my pot pie. Once I did this my food was amazing. The service was amazing as always and the Cranberry Bean Dip...yum.

Enjoyed our visit. We were celebrating a birthday and without asking for it our dessert came out with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate sauce. Very thoughtful. Wait staff attire and ambiance not quite as dressy as I expected based on the prices, but staff very knowledgeable of the menu. Excellent food. Wished there had been more vegetarian options -- only one entree. But at least there was one! Definitely save for a special occasion unless you have money to burn. Overall, very positive experience.

We were here for our annual Librarians' get-together/dinner for our school, and we like to try different restaurants each year. We so enjoyed everything, and our servers were wonderful. The food was absolutely yummy, and we might just come back next year, instead of trying somewhere new!

I enjoyed my visit to Woodberry, but I did find it pricey. The staff is outstanding. Each and every person that I had interaction with was courteous, helpful, and actually fun. You should be proud of the staff. They are great.

I love Woodberry Kitchen for all of the above as well as the architecture and the amazing and delicious combinations they concoct. I also happened to go alone this time for brunch and felt welcomed and comfortable.

We had an outstanding meal at Woodberry this past weekend, despite out embarrassing company. Our waitress was excellent, and somehow managed not to smack certain members of my group... which honestly took restraint.
Every detail, the space, the food and the people left a great lasting impression. I hope to be able to return.

As usual, the food and atmosphere were amazing. The service did leave something to be desired. Our waitress was not very friendly. When we were finished our dinner, she immediately assumed we wanted the check and didn't offer the dessert menu. I had also made a point of mentioning it was my friend's birthday, since I've always enjoyed the little messages the kitchen usually leaves on the dessert plate. There wasn't any of that this time around, even though the hostess had made mention of it when we were seated. It's not a huge deal but it would have been a nice surprise for my friend. I'll obviously be back again and hopefully the service will once again match the high caliber of the menu.

Woodberry Kitchen should definitely be on your bucket list.....however; I am not an extrinsic foodie, so I struggled. The $110.00 steak included oysters, sweet potato and some greens....not worth the price. Very loud, but full of energy. We sat by the kitchen, and got to watch all of their moves.

Parking and valet parking has become a problem. The valet parking has been forced to move a good distance away to a not-so-near by parking lot. This forces guests to walk in the open air about 50 yards crossing the street twice to the restaurant entrance. Nor good in the rain or cold evenings.
The restaurant was overbooked (second time) causing about a 45 minute wait for reservations. No place to wait. Bar was 2-3 deep waiting for service. Standing around in the hallway waiting was not enjoyable.
My oyster chowder was served with cold oysters and was returned.

We went to Woodberry Kitchen for the first time to celebrate my husband's birthday. The staff gave us an excellent table knowing we were celebrating and absolutely everything we ate was delicious! Our waiter was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu. I love that everything is fresh and local. I would highly recommend Woodberry Kitchen. The ambience is fantastic and the food is amazing!

Excellent food every time. The menu changes with great seasonal options. Even a classic dish has a little twist to it. This is a great place to go if you want to try something new. Staff always have great recommendations...my only dislike is the lack of space. You're not bumping elbows with strangers but you do get fairly close...regardless, Woodberry is my go to spot for a nice meal at all hours of the day.

The good: The cocktail ' paradise found' is delicious! As are the hard boiled eggs.
THE BAD: The hostess and manager are profoundly terrible. They purposefully and spitefully ruined our evening. For two days I called to request our two four party reservations be placed in the same room. When they arrived the 'hostess' (she wasn't very host like) said she wouldn't be seating us together. Then proceeded to seat one of our parties in the super noisy bar area. We had two Infants with us and would not fit. At which point the 'hostess' scolded me for not informing them we'd have infants that take up space. I assured her that 4 adults and 2 infants was clearly stated on our reservation confirmation. She flubbed through a series of words afterwards and then directed us into the other dining room. Upon seating we noted that there was an additional four top near our table. Perfect. My husband went to confirm that they'd be placing our other party there. He was again met with rude obstinate remarks that they were already seating a party there. Amazing.
Dinner and appetizers were very small portions at far too high a price. The lambchetta was terrible. I expect something fantastic for $36 a plate and despite having good purveyors the food fell far from wonderful. The bar failed to deliver two of six drinks timely and correctly. Back to the seating issue. At the end of dinner the manager decided to check on us and should honestly not have that job. She sat there repeating the same unhelpful statement. She then defended the hostess by stating that the four top near us that they filled was done so because that party thought the other room was too loud and requested a different seat. WHAT! So after two days of requesting to be near each other they instead honored the request that party made on site! UNBELIEVABLE.
There are far too many great restaurants in Baltimore/ DC area that have delicious food and actually treat their customers well to go here

This was my second time at Woodberry. It was very disappointing. We ordered the lamb sausage flat bread for an appetizer. The sausage was good but the flat bread was over cooked. We ordered the black bass after seeing it on the next table. Very good size fish and they said they enjoyed it. Ours came and it was 1/2 the size. This fish should have been thrown back. Because of the size it was over cooked and very difficult to eat. They offered to cook another one for us but after having to deal with so many bones it was not an appetizing thought. We chose not to go for dessert. When the check came they brought the cooked fish in a to go box. Since I was staying in a hotel it could not be taken home. The staff did a wonderful job to make the experience better but I can only give this visit a fair rating.

Food was great, service was fantastic. The food felt fresh and well cooked. The only reason for four stars out of five was the dessert. My wife's was excellent, but my lattice apple pie was a bit stale tasting. Overall, a great place to eat, a great place to enjoy a special occasion.

I apologize that I can't remember our server's name, but she did a great job and the overall experience was wonderful. The cocktails were delicious, the appetizers and flatbread were on point, and the main course was incredible. Nothing but applause, and we can't wait to get back for more!

Extremely attentive service. Great food. confusing parking. It used to be valet at the door. It is now "valet" in a parking lot a block away. You still have to give a key to your car. They might have to move it to a further parking lot another block away.

Had an amazing evening at Woodberry Kitchen. We were a little challenged in finding it but that is all the more reason to love it. It is a magical experience from the time you pull up to valet. Toasty fires keep you warm and friendly attendants assure you that you are on the right trail. We entered and were greeted by the very same lovely personalities that answered the phones hours before...well at least their co-workers. Amazing atmosphere. Incredible staff. Wonderful food. Our cocktails were described in detail. And delicious. While seating at the bar we noted that everyone wears flannel shirts and they look impeccable. I have some branding ideas for those cozy tops. We were seated upstairs and while we were next to the server station it was all perfect. Oysters. Incredible. Steak and Fall Vegetables. Then sherbet and after dinner drinks all explicitly explained to us prior to ordering. We will be back. A truly magical journey, really!

There is no exaggerating Woodberry Kitchen's outstanding food, atmosphere and experience. Local ingredients turned into uncommon, memorable meals - in best environment. This is a classic restaurant no matter where in the world it would be. Baltimore's best and a national best.

We went to Woodberry Kitchen to celebrate my wife's birthday with our children. All of the food was great and prepared exactly the way we wanted it. I lowered the service rating to 4 stars because we had to wait a while for our drinks - they came out after our appetizers. Great meal overall and we will go back again.

The food was delicious but the service was not good. We never got a drink we ordered for our child and a substitution I wanted on one of my brunch items was not made as requested. I did enjoy the pork belly and eggs though and the cocktails were very good as well.

Brunch is always a delight at the Woodberry. We have never had a bad meal there! The lamb sausage was cooked just right with Egg in a hole and the Maryland crab shirted eggs were wonderful. We usually get the CMP for dessert but, the ice cream trio did was an awesome finish to a hearty meal.
This is one of my favorite restaurants! ...
This is one of my favorite restaurants! I like knowing that the food is locally sourced, and that I know some of the farmers who provide produce and meats for Woodberry. Tonight was no exception. My son and his girlfriend were visiting for thanksgiving, so we had dinner here on the Friday after. We all agreed the standout was the pumpkin soup, which was simply fantastic. We ordered several smaller plates to share. The meatballs were excellent too. We also had the fried oysters, a kale salad, which was excellent, and chicken enchiladas. The chicken dish was the only dish that was less than great, being a bit heavy and doughy.
Overall, our experience was a success, and will dine there again and again, I am sure!
This was our first time there with a fal ...
This was our first time there with a fall menu instead of summer. It was just as excellent as always. Starting with the crab dip, roasted garlic and smoked rockfish, through spicy pork and pasta, tavern steak and lambchetta. We finished it off with the always superb CMP. We will definitely be back.

We find eating at Woodberry Kitchen to be a hit or miss experience. Eating upstairs, we find to be cold and disconnected. We always make a reservation so as to request to sit downstairs, but this time we learned, it is first come first serve. Reservation request doesn't matter. We begrudgingly went upstairs and it was so cold we ate with our winter coats zipped up. The staff was very pleasant, but really, just wanted to seat people.
We ate there 2 weeks earlier and had an amazing meal. Our favorite was the Delicata squash flatbread. It was incredible. This time we ordered it again but it was missing the delicata squash. The sweet potato oyster soup was a white cream soup with 4 oysters, no sweet potato. One thing they never fail on are the craft cocktails. So excellent.

Came here with while my dad was in town on a business trip and drove up from VA. Totally worth the drive! The rustic/industrial ambience is totally my thing. Every single person that worked there was very friendly and welcoming. I wish I was there during the day to see all the shops in the surrounding Clipper Mall area! Such a fun place - food was delicious. Obviously, be prepared to spend some money because you'll want a snack, then a soup or hot plate, then a meal. Everything looks too good to not course it out in such a manner. Fun cocktail list and a dessert/coffee/after dinner drinks list that makes you want to continue. Special occasions would be perfect for this place.

So disappointed with the terrible service we got. This will be my third and last time here. Our waiter made not only made no apologies for the 30 min+ delay in food, but also didn't seem at all friendly or attentive. Simply unacceptable and definitely not worth another visit. Sad.
