Woodberry Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

Seasonal menu always offers great selections. On the snack menu there's always something fresh and delicious on toast (currently heirloom tomatoes) definitely get that! Nothing from food to cocktails is a bad choice! My favorite place to eat in Baltimore for a reason!

This was my fourth time to Woodberry Kitchen. While the fresh ingredients and interesting dishes keep me coming back, I once again felt the tinge of disappointment which keeps me coming back only once a year. The drinks were slow to arrive, causing the flow of the evening to drag. The food was overly salty (which is something I don't typically mind, but SO salty that we couldn't eat one dish). I would suggest ordering several of the small portions to get a variety. Our best tastings were recommended by our server. The chicken and biscuit, large dish was very bland. I fed it to my dog when I got home. If I had just ordered "supper" I would have been even more disappointed. (My suggestion, go for the small dishes, skip "supper" and order your next drink as soon as you order the first.)

Well it was on my list of restaurants to try and I tried it. It was nice. Presentation was good and we had a good time. I enjoyed the dessert of melons with melon sorbet, it was nice and light. Visually it was wonderful, food wise it was fine, but then again, I've been spoiled by better. I think I was let down by many great reviews, and those high expectations were not met upon tasting the food.

Excellent experience from the opening round of cocktails at the bar to the apps, dinner, dessert, and nightcap back at the bar. Everything we had was delicious, service was excellent, ambiance was great. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Baltimore. Just don't be more than 15 minutes later for your reservation or else you might lose your table!

The food was amazing. While our server was excellent, the service was very slow. We had a reservation and were seated over a half hour late. It also took a long time for the server to come to our table, take our order and deliver the first round of food. After that the service picked up. The food made the wait worthwhile.

The first time I visited Woodberry Kitchen, I loved it! Our service was great and the food was delicious. The last time I visited Woodberry Kitchen, we had to wait a long time for our table (even though the hostess told us it would only be a few moments), and we didn't receive much attention from then on. They put us in a side room and took a very long time to take our drink order, let alone our dinner order. The food was tasty but not worth the wait. Our waiter never came back to give us the check - we had to flag down two other waiters to pay so we could leave! It was a very disappointing experience.

This place is cool. It's in a great old steel mill and has fantastic architecture.
Service was great. The staff knows their stuff. The food was super fresh. Local ingredients, a delicious variety - we certainl want to go back.
It's kind of funny because as you drive there you feel as though you might be near some crack houses, but then you turn into the neighborhood and you are in the middle of this awesome area - you might just want to move in.

This is one of our favorite restaurants, and we are very discerning DC diners. Oh but if we could actually have a conversation. The noise level at Woodbury is really the only minus. Unfortunately, it is like so many really fine dining experiences today. That said, we return several times a year despite the 60+mile distance for the creative offerings.

Great special occasion place although can get pricey pretty quick. The brunch was excellent. The eggs with pork belly were a real treat, as was the buttermilk fried chicken. And they make wonderful bloody marys. I love this restaurant and it's always a treat to dine there.

I have dined at Woodberry kitchen previously and I always enjoy the food, drinks, and service. This was my first time there for Sunday brunch. This also did not diasppoint. My only complaint is the parking situation- it was a rainy day and very busy and we were stuck waiting for our valetd car in the rain:(

Made a reservation for 7 people. Did call the day before our reservation requesting to add another person. They were very accommodating and told us we had a table that would even sit 10. However received a voicemail later asking to confirm reservations for the evening when our reservations were for brunch. This did cause some confusion but was clarified with a phone call. Part of our party was running a few minutes late. We were told that they would not seat us until our entire party was there. We grabbed a few seats at the bar...the drinks were great. When the rest of our party arrived we were then told our table was not ready. This also was ok because we had seats at the bar and the bartenders were great. But why make your patrons feel like they are responsible for not being seated. We were not seated for almost 45 minutes after our scheduled reservation. All in all the waiting staff and bartenders awesome!!! Food great!!! Hostesses seemed a little lost. Did have a fun family brunch

Amazing restaurant. Great decor, ambiance, and staff. Food was solid. It's a bit pricey and sometimes when it gets busy it can be a bit slower, but overall, wonderful. Cocktails are strong and tasty and change up quite a bit. Food dishes change but they always have some solid ones that don't change each time i've gone. It's wonderful for special occasions as well!

Creative and delicious cocktails featuring local ingredients. Our crabcakes were superb, the best we've had anywhere.
Only quibble was the somewhat slow service. That said, we were dining outside on a gorgeous evening and weren't in a rush so waiting a bit longer than we expected for our main courses wasn't a big deal. Will definitely go back.

The food was excellent . Great local summer choices. The cocktail menu had many summer drink options.
The service was very attentive . The atmosphere is fun to sit and watch all the activity.
This is a favorite restaurant for our family and friends

Our server (can't remember his name, slight european accent) was phenomenal. he answered every question thoroughly and was very attentive, as well as the rest of the staff.
Food was excellent as usual. Non-entree portions tend to be on the small side but the entrees are fulfilling.
As always, we appreciate the use of local ingredients and support of local food providers.

The rustic atmosphere is charming. Service staff were knowledgeable and attentive. Our server was a bit pretentious. However, my first dish, soft-shell crabs, was heavily salted. I had to send it back as inedible. My replacement dish was shrimp with rice and a sauce somewhat similar to gumbo. It was adequate and forgetful. The dessert, peach shortcake, was delicious. The server attempted to charge me for the higher-priced entree dish I had to return and appeared somewhat annoyed when I questioned her about the mistake. Overall, I have dined at WK six or more times in the past and enjoyed my meals. This time not so much. I am not likely to return any time soon.

I've been to Woodberry Kitchen twice now, and both times were great experiences! Fresh and premium ingredients go a long way when you know how to use them well like this kitchen staff! Amazing food and drinks! Cocktails are definitely created and served with tender loving care! We arrived 10 minutes early with reservations and were seated right away. Staff was friendly and eager to help; great teamwork to make it all come together! The cost was up there, but still a very fair price for a great meal experience. I've paid much more for much less elsewhere.

This place is overpriced. The food was nothing to write home about especially for the price. The waiter I had was not very helpful with food choices. I let him know it was my first time visiting and he did nothing to make sure I returned. I will not be back and honestly would not recommend to anyone either.

Service was our only compliant. The menu raised som questions which the waiter was not helpful at answering. He was not attentive, and it took a long time to be served once we ordered. I expected a better quality service experience.
