Woodberry Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Normally we really like Woodberry, but they were off their game this time. Despite our reservation, we were seated 20 minutes late and waited another 25 for a waiter to arrive. He brought still water that tasted like turpentine (something about an ambient system) and then disappeared again before returning to take our orders. The food was good as it always is, but the overall experience was a poor one.
Enjoyed brunch...outstanding service. Best oysters I have had in a long time. We were seated in the small room off the bar area, good for conversation. Main room is for those who want to be a part of the scene. Prosecco with Plum Syrup was Delicious, nice change from a Bellini.
Good brunch choices on the menu, every thing out of the ordinary spectrum.
Food was surprisingly ordinary, heavy on the fried and sauce components. I would have preferred more foodie-type options. I had the lamb sausage with potatoes and carrots. It tasted pretty much the way I might have made that food at home. Meh. Service was sporadic. Trendy and hip, but inefficient. The one exception to an overall lackluster meal was the ice cream. The apple sorbet was fantastic.
The food and ambiance was good and we enjoyed the service. The only part I disliked was that it was very noisy that a conversation is not possible. We were also seated next to a family with two babies who spilled their parent's drink on me during dinner. I probably won't be back due to the noise level.
Another excellent meal and overall experience at Woodberry Kitchen this time for a birthday dinner. Server and host make you feel special from start to finish. Had one of our favorite tables in the middle near the open kitchen and oven all the better to see the attention and love that goes into preparing each dish. Flatbreads are great place to begin, this time crab. French onion soup can be so boring elsewhere but not here. Server recommended it and we were swooning. Rich vege stock, not beef, topped with a nice crouton and cheese nicely balanced. Special request preparation for the scallops to forego the pork was smoothly accommodated. Perch also nicely prepared whole with crispy skin. Finished with a beautifully presented platter of handwritten birthday wishes in chocolate accompanied by a just right small scoop of ice cream. If you can't make it for dinner, go for brunch which is equally delicious.
I have eaten here often. Food can be exciting but not always. Today it was somewhat off. Salad was only so-so. Trout well prepared. Butterscotch pudding dessert more whipped cream topping than pudding. Preciously was more pudding than topping. Still an excellent addition to the Baltimore dinning scene and I will go again.
Having been to your restaurant several times for brunch, I brought my friend up from Alexandria for this dinner/event. Ordered dinners for both, the flavors were either over seasoned or bland. Drinks were small and very expensive! Wine bottle prices reflect standard size, but the $55 Pinot Noir was a half bottle? The over $200 cost of the meal warranted a D.C. Restaurant bill. Very disappointed and my friend had no interest in returning, sadly.
The food and service were impeccable, and the prices were in line with the quality of the food. We never felt rushed, there was plenty of time to enjoy each course and breathe a bit between courses. The atmosphere was casual and not stuffy. It was a bit noisy, but not to point that you could not easily hear the people at your table. Tables are spaced well enough that you don't share the conversations of the tables around you. We will not hesitate to dine here again.
I was very disappointed in my experience at Woodberry Kitchen. I made a reservation through open table and then they gave my reservation away to someone else who had a "similar name". I do not have a remotely common name and they wouldn't clarify what name exactly they confused it for. Neither the hostess nor the manager apologized for their hostess' mistake and then they refused to give any time estimates as to when we would sit down. We waited 45 minutes before we finally sat down and even after all that our service was incredibly slow and the staff was very inattentive. The food was fine but the overall experience and service was horrific and I will never return and neither will anyone else in my party.
Rustic setting with creative furnishings - hipster vibe is pulled off in what appears effortless as the fit and svelte staff is clad in plaid and beards (on the waiters) - attentive and knowledgeable wait staff that appear to enjoy their jobs; clean and local food that time and energy is invested in to create delightful notes of flavor, thoughtfulness, and creativity.
The setting is not "invented" or contrived it is maintained in its former mill state; obviously, a forward-thinking restaurateur had a vision in creating Woodberry Kitchen. Kitchen is open as cooks and preps create. Fresh wood piled to the ceiling in anticipation of being used in various ovens or grills. Pricey, but well-worth the experience, ambiance, and palate pleasing fare.
A gem for historically rich Baltimore City.
If you set a reservation do not expect to sit when you set it for. For this place reservations are mere suggestions and it's constantly over booked. There is upstairs seating that is never used. And I generally wait 30+ mins for a table.
Once you are seated the food is fantastic. The front of the house just needs some work.
WK has passed the test of time. Always fun to be in this hipster place w great food. Pricey but you get what you pay for. My only minor complaint was that they have no fresh lemons!! Was told they only serve food and beverages made with LOCAL ingredients. My beautiful raw oysters ($17 for six) would have been so much tastier with fresh lemon. Oh well...
Aside from the incredible food and drinks, I can't say enough about how genuinely nice and accommodating the staff was yesterday to myself and my 10 year old daughter, who was making her first visit. From the folks at the bar (the teetotalers menu rocks), to our server Kati (who explained everything), and most of all Virginia, you left a lasting impression on a young girl (and her father). Thank you.
The ambiance is perfect, and the service was exceptional. There was never a moment that we did not have what we need and every question we had was answered. The flavors of all of the food was fantastic, the only hitch keeping it from being five stars was that my date's dish was a little bit cold.
Delicious! I honestly don't think you could have a bad meal at Woodberry. You do need to be a bit adventurous in your tastes as the selections are creative and something you wouldn't necessarily think would be good -- but it is! Great food from beginning to end. The Bayleaf ice cream... YUM!
