WP Kitchen + Bar - Greensboro Ratings and Reviews
Upon entering the restaurant, the hostess was very preoccupied and did not greet us at all. She has several opportunities to but was far to busy checking on things in the dining room. We realized our party had already been seated. Had we not been meeting people, I would have walked out. Not a good first impression. The pizza oven wasn't working so the menu was small. Our waiters was friendly and helpful but our experience was still terrible. Food was not good and one person's meal was not cooked properly. They were out of several things we wanted. The manager came by with complementary desserts which was kind but it was a very disappointing and expensive evening. We won't be back.
Decided to go to WP for Valentine's Day. First impression was how modern it was inside. Seats were comfy and bar looked great. Great wine list, but I'm a beer guy. Food was decent. We had the fried calamari and it had a chalky aftertaste to it. I think it was the breading. Pizza oven was not working which was disappointing since I wanted to try one. The burger and fries was tasty, but the wife's alfredo was bland. For the price I was expecting tastier food. Maybe I'll try it again when the pizza oven is fixed, but other than that I would not visit again.
Lunch birthday for 6 people! Lunch at 13pm! The place wasn't packed.
We waited 1hr for our food! We got back to work at 1:45pm!
Five of us ad specials for the day! We didn't asked for an intricate dish! It was just a bit too long for lunch!!!
With that said, the food was excellent!!!
I had never visited WP since it opened at Friendly. Based in previous reviews my guest and I were very disappointed with our meal. Wine, WP, was great...Sam our server was excellent and very accommodating. We ordered a pizza, nothing special, and our pasta dish came out cold. It was replaced and the GM brought it out with an apology. Even warmer, the sauce on top of the cheese ravioli was nothing more than a tomato bisque. I would have to say I will frequent other nearby venues, more value for the dollar.
Food and service was great even after my initial request for two tables totally away from each other was apparently not documented. Servers for both tables were wonderful. Managers were great about checking in
Entry Hostesses could use a bit more personality and attention to detail.

This was my second time to WP and it was just as delicious as the last time. Only issue was our waitress was here and there and assumed we were done, gave us three separate checks and walked away. We were all together and we wanted a dessert but after receiving our bill prematurely we decided to go somewhere else for dessert.
Not what it used to be...Service, as always, was great. Unfortunately, the food wasn't. Both wife and I had wood fired pizzas. Crust was thin and soggy. Too much grease. The menu for this new concept is different, and not very tasty. We were there on a Friday night, and the place was dead. When this first opened several years ago this place was always packed on Friday and Saturday nights. They need to bring back some menu items that were great from the original menu (truffle fries, goat cheese pizza), and also make the portions worth the prices, or drop the prices. Cheese ravioli used to be a very large portion of 8 or 9 pieces, now its 5 or 6. They need to change up the menu more often, improve the wine & beer menu as well.
Probably won't be back, which is too bad, because the ambiance & service is great - they just need the food & value to improve.
We really enjoyed our dinner here. The menu offered a wide variety of choices so everyone was happy with their meal. Calamari some of most tender I have had. Blue Cheese Potato chips were ridiculously good. Pizzas are great of course but we were equally please with seafood, dinner sizes salads and my husband raved about his burger. Said it was cooked just right. Add this to your favorites list in Greensboro.
We've been longtime customers and we had high hopes for the new concept but unless something chances drastically, it will be a while before we go back. They have one seafood pasta on the menu and it's pretty bland. The pork schnitzel was tough and the mustard sauce was just ok. I don't know if they have a new chef but that dish was not the same. I ordered a side salad and had to return it because it had absolutely no taste. The second one was better but not great. They've priced themselves out of what I consider reasonable for the food. I've left disappointed before but nothing like Saturday night. The only redeeming factor is the wait staff. Paul normally waits on us but was not there. The other staff were very attentive as are the house managers. If they could get a menu that worked.
We are not familiar with restaurants in the area and felt this choice would be a safe bet. The restaurant's claim to bring out each meal when ready to 'savor every bite at its best' is confusing. All 8 meals came out together and 7 were over-cooked. Price and quality are not in alignment. No complaints with the salads, desserts and wine and the environment was nice.
Would have rated this visit higher except for mix-up on the dessert order. We had to wait over 20 minutes for it to be delivered and we were ready to leave. The manager came by before we ever said anything and apologized for the delay - and offered the dessert for free. Our problem was we went 20 minutes with no word from anyone. It was a generous solution, but did not change the fact that we were left with no word for a long time. This was unusual and it still remains one of our regular places to go.
Very relaxed and comfortable. Greeted promptly and seated right away. Expanded menu is quite varied and more complete now. Would suggest doing the same with the wine list. Three of us ordered three different pizzas so we could have take-homes. Made for nice lunch the next day. My wife and I are regulars but a first for our daughter. She can't wait to go back.
There was no "wow" factor here, but the food was really good. The serving staff seemed very disorganized, delivering food to wrong tables and not keeping track of who ordered what. Hopefully that will improve as they get used to their new environment. The space is very chic; we'll definitely be back to check out the patio area, which was closed for a private party during our first visit.
My wife and I usually get the fennel sausage pizza. I tried the chicken pasta this time and it was perfect, the sauce wasn't heavy and if was well seasoned. We also love the truffle fries. Craft beer selection is nice and I always love the overhead music playing.
The "format change" is a little shaky. The food wasn't as good as in past visits but the prices are definitely higher. My experience mirrored comments I had heard from others. Hopefully, these are just growing pains and will be resolved with a little more time.
My wife and I dined at Wolfgang Puck's for the first time recently. We like to try new (for us) restaurants and we hadn't been there before. As we walked in, the place seemed nice enough. The ambiance was average or slightly above, but nothing special. We were seated and we began to browse the menus. One of the first things I noticed was the price of a glass of beer -- seven dollars! Quite high for this area. The dinner prices were high as well -- so I expected that the food would be quite special. It was good, slightly above average, but not deserving of the high price. (I had pasta; my wife had salad and wood oven roasted root cellar vegetables with golden raisins -- which came without the raisins; we both had wine.). The service was better than average (although the servers forgot to bring the bread that I requested and it had to be re-ordered). We don't mind spending a few bucks occasionally for a top quality meal at a fine dining establishment, but I wouldn't rate WP as such an establishment. The food, atmosphere, and service were good but not commensurate with the price.
We enjoyed a birthday dinner here with delicious fish entrees, vegetables and dessert. The food presentation is beautiful and entrée portions are ample. Vegetables are an add-on and they were good, but a small portion. Desserts were also small portions (not enough to share) but lovely presentations and tasty. The restaurant was packed and service was friendly, but slower than we expected. If you like a lively restaurant and $50 per person (with no beverage other than water) is OK with your budget, you'll enjoy dining here.
