Woodfire Grille at Diamond Jo - Dubuque Ratings and Reviews
First time at Woodfire. The feedback we ...
First time at Woodfire. The feedback we had received from friends prior to our visiting was that the food and atmosphere were great, but it was a little pricey especially for our area. That pretty much sums it up. We dined early on a Monday night and were one of only a handful of tables seated, which was nice. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. Expect to spend around $35 plus per person if you have drinks, an appetizer, and an entrée. Overall great experience and we'll definitely be back. Especially for date night!

The food was good, but defiantly not worth the money. Went with my family and had a table of 4 and the bill was $200. The menu did not have as big of a variety as I was expecting. Also to mention all sides are Al Carte which I am never a fan of when the entrees are pricey to begin with.

Always good food and attentive wait staff. Yummy Avocado spring rolls, steak you can almost cut with a fork. Pumpkin cheesecake recommended by our waitress was mouthwatering. Can't say enough good things about Woodfire!

Had an excellent experience, as always. The lobster was FANTASTIC and the waiter recommended the crabmeat rangoon flatbread appetizer which was also awesome. Great atmosphere for a quiet dinner! We will be returning!

An absolutely beautiful restaurant with great food. There were so many items on the menu that I would have loved to have tried. I had the butternut squash risotto and my husband had the bacon wrapped shrimp served over angel hair pasta in a chipotle cream sauce. We both enjoyed our dinners. The best part is the ambiance with a private fire place right in our booth. Great place for date night!!

Food was delicious; service was O.K., not spectacular. There was a table of four men who got quite a bit more attention that us (man/woman). I notice these things a lot. Four men v. one woman and one man - who will leave the better tip? That gets old, fast. There was also a bit of a snafu with our reservation, but that was resolved in time for us to eat at a leisurely pace and still make it to our show on time. All in all, I would recommend this place. The casino where the restaurant is located is also very nice, as is the small theater where we saw our show. Very pleasant experience.

Out to Galena for our 1st anniversary (we are 47 and 53 yes of age) . Wanted a nice place to dine . Atmosphere was quiet and pleasant. Service was very good. I ordered the prime rib, rare, at $39. The meat was cooked perfect, however, overly "grisly". Often tough to chew. My wife's filet mignon, rare, was excellent. Cooked perfect and good cut of beef. We shared an order of sauteed mushrooms. These were over cooked and mildly warm as though they were sitting for some time. The stuffed baked potato was good. All together, it was good dining experience, however, slightly overpriced for the quality of food.

Everything was great except my wife's steak. She ordered a bison tenderloin, medium rare, got it and it was closer to medium well. Needless to say, she was very disappointed by the over cooked bison as we know bison should never be anything over medium, it is very lean and gets dry. The bison tenderloin is the main reason she picked this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary.

We dine here several times a year and are never disappointed. While the prices are a little higher than most area restaurants it is well worth it. As a premium steakhouse there is no competition in the area that approaches this level of quality.

We went to the Wood Fire Grill to celebrate and anniversary. The appetizer we selected was excellent as were the entrees and sides that we selected. The one thing that I felt could improve the experience was to have menu options that would include a potato and side with the entrée selection. The entrées were pricey to start and adding sides at $7 - $8 each was a bit much in my opinion. Since it was a special occasion the experience was worth the added costs.

Everything was day upon our arrival. We enjoyed the flatbread appetizer, and the chop salad and the heirloom tomatoes salad were wonderful beginnings to delicious entrees. Service was great and noise level was low. Great place for dinner.

We took our daugjter for her 17th birthday, the Waiter was extremely nice and helpful, she made my daughter feel special, his dessert recommendation was excellent and the specials he recommended. Thank you for making our experience an A+

Our waiter, Dahan, was absolutely fantastic! He made our evening very enjoyable.
We loved the house made tomato preserve on the warm house made bread.
We could have made a meal of that alone! The french onion soup, lobster bisque, and chopped salad were very tasty. I liked the idea of two size options for the salads; I got the smaller size and it was a perfect starter portion.
The filets were tender and delicious. The bacon wrapped shrimp were devoured...sauce was a bit spicy. The portobello mushroom side was so good as were the green beans with the tomato preserve and mashed potatoes.
The banana foster dessert was truly decadent and yummy.
There would have been five stars for the food except my lobster tail was fair.

Atmosphere was nice as was out for a date night with my wife. Nice to be able to have a nice conversation without a lot of noise. Menu gave a little sticker shock, but portions were fit for a king and prepared superbly. Very delicious and service was great. Made a great evening!

Our experience was positive from the moment we walked in the Woodfire Grille until we walked out.
The food was excellent and was enhanced by Sarah, our server. She made us feel welcome the entire meal.
I would not hesitate to return on our next visit to Dubuque.

The food was very expensive. The food portions were very small. The food was only average in taste. Service was slow for the amount of people in there. The service had to be guided to do ordinary things. I would not recommend this restaurant.

This was our 3rd time eating here and was quite disappointed, my tenderloin was ordered medium rare came med-well and when I told waitress she said "Oh sorry to hear that", never offered to bring new one or take price off bill. Calamari seemed like it was a prepackaged deal, not good. Crab Rangoon and au gratin potatoes were very good. Waitress forgot to bring salad and when told said 'My bad". We told her just to forget it since our main course had already arrived. Hostess seemed mad at the world. When I pay prices like they have, I expect everything to be perfect which it has been in the past, not this time!
