We were able to get reservations same day using Open Table. This was our second visit and it was as good as we remember. We had the 5 course tasting and JR was our server and went out of his way to make sure our dietary needs were considered in each dish. Each course was carefully prepared and combination of items on the plate were thought through. I did like some more than others but the overall meal and service was over the top. Even the drink specials were unique. Each and every member of the staff thanked us and wanted to make sure we had an enjoyable evening. Great place for a special occasion or for the every day foodie.

Pros: food

So disappointed, I understand that most restaurants portions are out of control big, but this was the complete opposite. The portions were so tiny and sadly the flavors I expected to be orgasmic were borgasmic. I was so excited about going and ultimately disappointed, our entire party ended up at Fat Mats for dinner after our 400.00 appetizers at Woodfire. This will not be added to my favorite restaurants which include Bacchanalia, Rathbun's and Flip.

Wow. I watched Kevin on Top Chef and waited a month for this reservation... and I wasn't disappointed! We ordered the five-course tasting menu - there wasn't a single thing I would have changed or enhanced. It was simply fantastic. Even our waiter, Greg, was excellent. A memorable meal at a memorable restaurant. I will definitely be coming back to this restaurant!

'Discovered' Woodfire about 9 months ago and we just keep going back. Exceptional service but what really makes it stand out is the incredible food. The flavors mix beautifully. We have always had an A+ dining experience.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Haven't found one yet

I don't mind small portions if the prices are reasonable but this place is ridiculous. $14 for ONE medium sized, average quality scallop!!! Are you kidding me? And $6 for a small bowl of "sunchokes" (a fancy name for what best I could tell were potatoes). My friend and I spent $60 each and left hungry. No wonder the place was empty on a Friday night!

A charming, cozy perfect place for a date or business dinner. Just right for big groups too. Great bar area. Great ambiance. Exceptional fresh food and matching wines.

I've been dining in Atlanta for many years. I've heard the same names tossed around when looking for a new place to dine but I had never heard of this one before. My date and I walked in and I was amazed at how impressive the space is. We sat down at the beautiful copper topped bar and we ordered two of their custom sidecar martinis made with all fresh squeezed organic juices.

I'm not a big wine buff or food snob so I usually like to be coached along by the servers at a restaurant. Our server was wonderful in this aspect as he had no qualms highlighting his favorites and then suggesting wine pairings with detailed explanations of how the flavors would interact.

It has only been a week since we dined, but I'm looking forward to going back when my parents come into town next week.

I went to Woodfire Grill while I was visiting from out of town and was thoroughly impressed. We were meeting people for dinner so we stopped at the bar for a drink. The bartender had several very good wines to chose from, as well as some fun mixed drinks. The service the entire night was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, which I understand is seasonal, so they serve only the freshest food. The portions were just right and the quality of the food was amazing. I will definitely come back again and again.

I?ve been to Woodfire several times since the new owners took over and have enjoyed it every time. The creative, seasonal cuisine is always perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. And the attentive and knowledgeable staff offer impeccable service. I?ve eaten the tasting menu several times and highly recommend it ? it?s fun to be surprised with each course. And Nick, the owner, is always eager to offer some great wine pairing recommendations. Some of my favorites dishes include the sweet cream of corn soup, the Georgia fried catfish stuffed with shrimp, and as a side dish, the polenta (best in the city). Also, for desert, try the award-winning sweet potato panna cotta, which is absolutely delicious or their new chocolate cake with banana cream and chocolate peanut butter ice cream - just sinfully good!

The food is perfectly prepared, fresh and delicious and the menu changes every time we go so there is always something new to try. The chocolate cake and the sweet potato panna cotta desserts are to die for!!If you don't know which wine would be best with your dinner, just ask Nick and he'll select just the right one. We have always had great service every time we've gone, and we'll continue to go back for great dining experiences.

I took my Mother and Wife to Woodfire Grill a few weeks back to give them a try...I was familiar that they were under new management and I had concerns that the food or mood would be different.

I am such a fan of pre-fixed course meals...we all had the 5 course executive chef prepared meal paired with 5 wines. We were very impressed with the selections that the chef came up with. On one of the courses he came over explained his vision on the course. He was very personable and YOUNG. I think Woodfire has a lot going for them. Again the food was prepared perfectly...and I believe the Farm to Table concept will work out well as there are many different options for Woodfire as GA has 4 uniquely different seasons food offerings.

Finally, the wine the wine. What can I say...the new owner Nick impressed us over and over again with his pairings and overall knowledge of the wine. I felt like we were in the wine region itself enjoying each glass of wine looking over the vineyard on a veranda.

Overall we had a wonderful experience and I look forward to going back often, just not for special occasions!

My wife and i had dinner at Woodfire Grill the other night. I hadn't been in since the original owners had left, but had a fantastic meal. The mood was much more relaxed and fun than it was even a few months ago! The food was amazing, the wine was great, i really enjoyed everybody's service. I really had a great time and would recommend it to friends!

Woodfire Grill has a very unique menu and the selections we tried were very good. The wine selection is varied and the ones we selected were excellent. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I like the fact that they use local products for their menu. The atmosphere is conducive to a great night out in Atlanta. We were visiting from out of state in September 2008 and Woodfire Grill was recommended to us by friends who live in the Atlanta area - it certainly lived up to their recommendation and we will most certainly go back next time we're in Atlanta.

Woodfire Grill is the BEST place to spend a wonderful evening, whether with a group of friends or just yourself and a special someone. I recently dined there not long after the new owners came on board and my experience was amazing. I liked how the facility itself, tho very nice, did not distract you from the unbelievable food. We met the chef and were surprised at how one so young could have such a brilliant ability to prepare outstanding farm to table fare. We elected to include the wine parings with a five course chef's choice which I strongly encourage...not only were the wines excellent but the origin, etc of them as explained by Nicholas Quinones was fascinating!

None of the places I've eaten before were enough to inspire me to do a review...just go....you will not be dissapointed! By the time you are leaving, you will be trying to figure out how soon you can return!

It had been years since my first visit and I'm glad I returned when I did. From the lovely aroma of the wood fire grill from the main dining room, to the sincere "thank you" and "good bye" at our departure from both owners, Woodfire Grill was delicious. I've been twice in the last month with different guests and everyone enjoyed the experience. The five course "tasting" menu was very complete having samplings from various local offerings, each contributing great combinations in flavor. Also, the culotte steak was perfectly prepared, and Nick Quinones made a terrific wine pairing recommendation that was a home run. Each time we went was for the dining experience of unique locally acquired foods, a proven talented chef, and personalized service. We were not disappointed. I would also recommend their "bar menu" which had outstanding meats and cheeses available. The signature cocktails were very satisfying, and the staff was very knowledgeable regarding the entire menu. Woodfire Grill would be ideal for a business dinner, a family celebration or a romantic evening. You won't be disappointed either!

I have become a regular at Woodfire Grill. I ate there a few times when M. Tuhoy was the chef and the quality of food was quite good. I have returned again and again since the ownership transition occurred. The farm to table concept remains the same...as well as slow cooked foods.
The quality and freshness of food and creativity is impeccable. Best duck and carpaccio I have ever had.
The chef is wonderful. Owners Nick and Bernard and staff are all very accommodating and very knowledgeable. Any time I have a special occasion, friends from out of town or want a delicious meal - I go to Woodfire Grill. There is something for everyone there from beautifully prepared veggies to beef.
Wine List is great.....ask Nick for recommendations or go to Woodfire for a tasting.
Can't say enough about Woodfire.

I recently visited WFG 2 nights in a row while in town on business, and both nights were great. First visit was on a Friday Night with a client and we sat outside, and enjoyed the cool air and privacy. Service was spot on, the the food was fantastic. Scallops and Cobia were my choice that evening, and it was the best Cobia I had ever eaten, and I have caught and eaten Cobia myself many times being from Florida. The following night I sat in the Cafe section with some family, and ewe njoyed tasty drinks, and pizza's. It was a busy night, but we were still greeted and checked on by the new owner, and he even let us sample some wines. I later sat in the bar area with some co-workers and enjoyed Blackberry Brambles and other perfectly concocted drinks from there "mixologist" behind the bar. Great ambiance, and a large enough place you can have a different experience many times over depending where you choose to dine, and relax. I will be back before the year is over.

I never made it to this restaurant when Tuohy was there (I wish I had), but WOW the new owners really know what they're doing. (And what's up with CitySearch?? The new owners have been there almost three months - update the listing!) A group of eight of us were looking for a place to chill over some good apps and interesting wines and someone had heard good things about WFG. We went and were blown away. We sat in one of the front tables by the bar and when we told Nick that we wanted to taste a lot of things, he offered to set us up with different first courses and pair them with wines. His choices were perfect! I liked that so much I went later just with my wife and we sat at the bar and ordered a couple of things (their house cured meats are killer!) and Nick kept bringing out tastes of some wines he was fond of to go with what we ordered. Some really creative choices of wines we didn't know that well. All spot on. Finally, I went with a group of friends from work and we had dinner. The duck is some of the best I've had anywhere. Picked a great bottle of wine off the list for a reasonable price. I like this place a lot. It's got its own style and everyone I've encountered there really knows what they're doing. They know their food and their wines and they're good at both. This is definitely my new favorite haunt.

We have eaten at Woodfire Grill several times over the last several years, and have enjoyed it each time. We have been more often since this summer and feel as though the food and service have improved. The ambience is very delightful. We particularly enjoy the wine tastings. We live out in the burbs, but WFG is well worth the drive.

I just recently went to the Woodfire Grill and I absolutely loved it. The ambiance is warm and inviting, the owners are extremely welcoming and the food is outstanding. When you go there, it is an experience, and there is more of a European pace to the serving and eating, which I enjoy, because when you leave you don't feel completely full and rushed out the door. They change the menu daily and only use seasonal ingredients, which makes for a fabulous culinary treat each time you go. I highly recommend it for a great night out.

I recently visited Woodfire after the change in ownership, and it was my first visit. My wife and I, and 2 other couples went for dinner. After speaking with the owner, we were advised to try the wine pairing menu with our 5 courses. We were BLOWN AWAY. Each course was as delicious as the last, and the wines were absolutely amazing. The owner brought most of the wines himself, explained why he suggested the pairing, poured, and then left us to make our own decisions. The service was excellent, the wine and food were amazing, and we haven't had a better evening anywhere in Atlanta. I recommend Woodfire to anyone who likes to sit down, relax, have some great food and some great wine, served to you by an excellent staff. Well done!

I admit that I expect alot from the restaurants I visit. I expect to have my meal within 30 minutes of ordering; I expect a server who seems somewhat interested in being a server. Most importantly, when spending a large amount of money on a meal, I expect it to be more than a tasting. The Woodfire Grill is a restaurant that oozes ambiance and has some very considerate owners; however, I probably won't eat here again.
When we arrived to dine, we were seated promptly and greeted by the server almost immediately. He was friendly, if not totally interested, and he suggested we look over the menu for a few minutes. We didn't see him again for nearly 20 minutes after that. When he finally came over and took our order, I asked him to bring me some coffee. This time, it was nearly 25 minutes before he finally brought a steaming french press of coffee From that point on, we seemed to be visited by him in increments of 25 minutes. After nearly 45 minutes past ordering, he finally brought us some bread. We devoured it, and he whisked it away without asking if we would like some more. It took us nearly an hour and a half before we finally got our entrees. While quite tasty, and flavorful, I expected more than two petite rounds of steak with, count them, 3 fingerling potatoes on a plate. Do you know why they are called fingerling potatoes? Because they are truly about the size of an average finger. The steak cost $27; for that, I would have at least expected 8 ounces of steak. However, my steak truly seemed gigantic compared to the miniscule portion of the pork loin. I would prefer that a restaurant inform you that you are paying for small plates, other than discovering it after you are already committed. It seems dishonest.
By the time we were finished, nearly 2 hours and 45 minutes had passed. We scarfed our food down within 15 minutes, so that tells just how bad the service was. Never again.

Woodfire is our favorite restaurant in Atlanta! Great food. Wonderful Service from everyone on the wait staff. Fresh, local ingredients. It's just a comfortable place to get wonderfully prepared food. Always an interesting wine list.

Pros: Great Staff, Great Fresh, Local Ingredients, Great Wine List

Cons: Cheshire Bridge

.

The price point is too high for mediocre "northern California" cuisine.

It started with the bathroom. The deadbolt proved to be unmovable - I was stuck and had to push myself under the stall to get out. When I told the hostess, she said "We've been thinking about putting up a sign about that lock."

The only dish that we enjoyed was the artichokes. But as I was going to spear a few more, a waiter swept by the table and took our half-full bowl of artichokes:
- Our waiter said he'd find out what happened
- He emerged from the kitchen with two artichokes in a bowl and asked, "Are these yours?" Nope.
- In the meantime, the artichoke-stealer passed by and gave us a snarky look.
- The manager arrived with the same bowl our waiter brought out and asked if they were our artichokes. Nope. "Do you know how many you had left? Can you tell me who took them?" Seriously?
- The manager apologized (finally) and said he'd get us a new bowl of artichokes.
- A new tiny bowl appeared with two artichokes that had been split in half.

Time for the $102-check. My husband gave our waiter our credit card and our $100-gift card. The bill came back - $102. My husband asked him to credit the card and run a new bill for $2. When my husband got up to go to the restroom, the manager and our waiter, along with the bartender, were grouped around the bill. Our waiter said to my husband, "I'm not sure what you want me to do here." My husband explained again. The manager said, "Don't worry" and then wrote "VISA" at the top of our bill - ?

"Come back real soon," the Emo bartender brayed as we left. We spoke to the manager about our evening - from the bathroom to having our artichokes stolen, to feeling like we were on Candid Camera with America's Most Disinterested Waiter.

We wondered why we had bothered to give our waiter a 20% tip. Could his depth of misery really inspire compassion? Or was it because we had a $100 gift certificate and could laugh off the horrendous night?

A friend of mine decided to have a birthday celebration at this restaurant. There was about 15 or so of us. We waited a while to be served, but when we were served there were some concerns. First of all, we never had bread at our tables waiting for us, nor was it offered. A person in our party had to ask the waiter what a particular plate was for and the waiter stated it was for the bread, but this was after half of us had eaten our entree. The chef was not very versatile for our accomodations, and some of us were left disgusted and frustrated.

My wife and I have been here a number of times for special occasions (anniversary, birthdays) and it has never failed to impress. Service is always high quality and the food has been wonderful everytime. It is pricey, but I feel you get your money's worth in quality, taste, and excellent all around atmosphere. It feels like a nice restaurant, which it is.

The Woodfire Grill has been mine and my husband's favorite restaurant for years. We have celebrated birthdays and anniversaries there since 2003. It is the standard by which we judge all other new restaurants we try. Most of the time when we try somewhere else, we end up disappointed and wish that we had just gone to Woodfire. I have read some negative reviews here and I am really shocked. I question some of their taste and ability to appreciate what Woodfire offers. So, what does Woodfire have to offer that keeps us coming back?
*Wonderful ambiance--the woodfire oven casts a heavenly aroma over the restaurant, the cozy seating, beautiful woodwork, the lighting. These all add up to make it so warm and romantic yet sophisticated.
*Knowledgeable, attentive service--our server last night was perhaps the best waiter I have ever had, anywhere. He started by asking if we had any food allergies, and since my husband does, that scored some major points. He followed through by making sure every dish we ordered was okay for him to eat. He knew the menu and the extensive and interesting wine list extremely well, and when the menu changes so often, that is quite an accomplishment.
*THE FOOD!!! Every time I have eaten at WF I take my time to savor every bite. My meal lingers in my mind for days, if not weeks, afterward. The chef, Michael Touhy, uses local, organic, and seasonal ingredients faithfully. Other places say that now because it's the "in" thing to do, but Touhy really does it. Everything tastes as if it has just been picked and put right on your plate.
*The experience--Keep in mind that everything is cooked to order. Plan on making an evening out of dinner; don't rush in expecting a quick meal on your way to another event. It's nice for a change not to feel rushed in a restaurant that is trying to be too trendy and turn over tables quickly. WF cares about the experience of eating and enjoying your meal, and is part of the Slow Food movement.

Pros: fresh, local, seasonal food cooked to perfection; romantic ambience, outstanding service

Cons: seedy area

Woodfire Grill is my favorite restaurant! They have the most excellent service in the city. Everyone is friendly and knowledgable. I appreciate Chef's focus on local and organic produce. The prices are very fair for the quality of food you are getting. Yukon River Salmon, Painted Hills Ribeye, softshell crabs, steel pan greens-YUM! The wine list is exceptional and they have several sustainable, and organic wines. They do great wine tastings there once a month, very affordable-$15.00, and they pour like 7 wines. Oh, and don't forget those wood oven pizzas! I would eat here every day if I could!

Some friends of mine kept mentioning how much they loved this place, so we tried it out over the weekend; they could not have been more right! The place has a great, cozy feel with that wonderful aroma of wood burning in the grill. Our server was just great - I go a lot of places & like the person serving me, but he was above & beyond what one ususally finds. He knew the dishes as well as you would imagine any chef would, he was gracious, funny & recognized when we wanted to be left alone. The food was just ridiculously good. I can't describe everything, it's enough to say that when speak about fresh food, this is the definition.
I'm going back in 2 weeks when my friends get into town!

HIGH price, very disapointed. I have eaten at several that are better and worth $75 per person. this does not compare to Kyma, Latavola, Ninos. I would not go here again.

I had been looking forward to trying WFG for a long time, but what a hug dissapointment when I finally did.

The service is terrible. The food is cliche and overpriced. Save yourself some frustration and try one of Atlanta's other more deserving restaurants.

Pros: LOTS OF STRIP BARS NEARBY

I had a really fabulous 'antipasto' spread - tuna salad, trout spread, tapenade and pickled peppers. It was all scrumptious - trout nicely smokey, but not overly so.
I don't like this sort of pepper, but otherwise all well worth it. I also had the trout entree - perfectly light, buttery without being greasy, great balance with the greens and potatoes.

One date had mixed olives (too many for one person to eat, it seems) - I had forgotten what a nice variety in good olives you could have, since even Whole Foods' tend to just be salty. She also had "wood oven roasted wild striped bass, cannelini bean ragout, aromatics, greens, pesto basil" - my favorite dish at the table, peppery, fresh and filling.

My other date had a nice big salad and some sort of creamy celery root soup with apples and vanilla oil.
It was nice and subtle - the apples were kinda superfluous but overall it worked really well.

The total bill, ~$180, but we downed a fair amount of wine (and I misordered an 18 year old scotch when I meant to get a 12, which added about $18 over expectation)

We went about a month ago for my birthday. The restaurant is well presented and the service was fantastic. We had a marinated beats, goat cheese, and greens appetize that was amazing, great glasses of wine, but dinners that under performed. I had the mixed grill with venison and quail. The quail was charred, and dry, but the venison and veggies were exceptional. She had the cedar plank salmon that was so thick it didn't come close to cooking evenly and the flavor was bland...not what you might expect from fresh salmon cooked on cedar. the sides, a ploenta and greens were very tastey. Though our meals had issues, Woodfire is well worth trying again. Be prepared to spend well over $100 for 2 dinners, appetizer, and drinks

I've eaten at the Woodfire Grill at least four times, including a New Year's Eve dinner. My first two meals there were absolutely impeccable: the staff is knowledgeable, the atmosphere is cozy and warm, and the food was great. The third meal, New Year's, was a little less impressive than the previous two meals. The food was delicious, and yet, somehow it just didn't seem quite up to the usual level -- perhaps because the kitchen is accustomed to making things to order, rather than keeping masses of the same meal at optimal serving temperatures for everyone doing the special NYE menu.

This last time, I was a little concerned that the restaurant had perhaps slipped just a tiny bit: while my appetizer was superb, my venison was good, not great. The fig accent was too sweet, and overwhelmed the venison, in my opinion.

However, I can say that the service is always outstanding! Every server I've ever encountered at the restaurant has gone out of his or her way to be friendly, informed, and approachable -- never snooty. They have a terrific wine list, and I've always gotten good recommendations that went well with the meal. They're wonderful people, as far as I'm concerned.

I would definitely return to Woodfire. If you can, get on their mailing list, where they announce special events and what's currently in season. Chef Tuohy has remained at the forefront of the organic/Slow Food movement, and always uses the freshest ingredients. While it's possible that you may sometimes get a miss due to the constantly-changing menu and innovation, you're more likely to get a winner. I consider it one of the more dependable options in the metro-Atlanta area.

I found my first experience here wonderful. The wait staff performed exquisitely, attending to every detail. Let them know beforehand if you're celebrating & they'll provide every touch imaginable- romantic table, wonderful awaiting bubbly & sincere good wishes. Even chef Touhy himself said "Happy Anniversary". They encouraged us to linger- how refreshing- and our server, Jenny's, knowledge of the menu would impress any critic. The relaxed, romantic ambience & luscious smoky aroma sinks in immediately. I particularly loved the beets with arugula & cheese, the AMAZING halibut and, interestingly, the melon & white wine sorbet intermezzo. A nice chocolate cake & espresso ended the meal perfectly. I'll dine here again & again, especially for big events. Thank you chef Touhy & all!

I am surprised by all of the negative reviews of this place. I have been several times and have always had a wonderful experience. I really like the laid-back, romantic atmosphere and the service is usually fine, while I wouldn't say great. They don't seat people on top of each other like many restaurants do, which is nice when you want to have a relaxing, quiet dinner. I also never feel pressured to rush through the meal and leave like I do at many other popular restaurants. Most importantly, I think the food is amazing. It is fresh and creative, and I love that they always change the menu to feature what is in season. I have never had anything there that I didn't enjoy. I definitely recommend this place, I think it is very different that what earlier reviews seem to indicate that it was a few years ago.

We had an unfortunately upsetting dinner at Woodfire Grill last night. To start, I, along with 2 other people in my party, found the website to be quite deceptive. The dining room was incredibly loud and several people, including our waiter (3 times), bumped into my chair nearly causing me to spill my drink each time. We had reservations at 8, were seated at 8:30, and didn't receive our main course until 10:15. One member of our party even had to leave before our entrees arrived because of other obligations she'd made not considering the fact that our 2-course dinner would become the 3.5 hour excursion that it ended up being by the time we got our check. Two of the entrees, the ribeye and the venison, were very good. The monkfish was a big soupy mess and not recommendable. I won't be back nor will I recommend this restaurant.

I have lived in Atlanta for several years and heard nothing but good things about Woodfire Grill - however, I discovered tonight it's an overpriced restaurant with average food...seriously what is the big deal with this reataurant? It's more like a restaurant you would find in a cheap hotel. The only decent asset is the service. Don't waste your time...unless you are fine with medicority. Three words: Awful Awful Awful.

Woodfire Grill does two things right: 1. Excellent food made from local ingredients; 2. A relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Especially in the winter, the warm and inviting dining room makes you want to stay all night.

The constantly changing menu is always fresh and seasonal. Simple dishes like parsnip soup really shine as does the woodfire grilled chicken. The risotto was some of the best in town. Desserts are unique and subtle (no lava choco cake here).

Great place for a date or a gathering of good friends.

I was looking forward to dining at Woodfire Grill, but was generally disappointed. While the atmosphere was fantastic, the food and value were not. My trout dish and potato salad was bland and the french fries soggy. In addition, the food was very overpriced, including the soft drink refill charge and $5 french fries. One recommendation to management, replace the whole fish with a filet due to the dim mood lighting, unless you want a patron to choke on a bone because they couldn't see it.

Loved this restaurant. We had a cheese plate, which was awesome. I had a vegetable plate which was cooked without butter upon my request. All the veggies were cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Wine was excellent. All in all the service was good and the food was fresh and tasty. However, I think it is too expensive for what it is. The prices need to be cut by about 20-25%, and then I'd go back for sure.

My wife and I took two friends and brought a bottle of aged Bordeaux we'd been saving ($20 corking fee). Our server decanted the bottle into what looked like a milk bottle and then spilled about half of it all over my friend's pants. We were not even offered a bottle of wine from their list to replace the very expensive one they'd spilled. Twenty minutes after ordering the manager told us that an entree we'd selected was not available. The food was fine but nothing spectacular. I wrote to the restaurant management to complain and never received a reply. This experience would be unacceptable at a Taco Mac but it is truly outrageous after paying $375 for dinner (without wine). Atlanta has many great restaurants--there's no reason to throw your money away on a pretentious, overpriced place staffed by people who are both pompous and inept.

After I got over the fact that this is on Cheshire Bridge, I realized what a great restaurant this is. The service was quick and friendly and they servers were knowledgable of the menu. I had the duck confit pizzetta which was incredible and a really nice chardonnay. The menu was very creative and unique. I would definitely return!

I had dinner w/ some friends here recently and we even brought our own special bottle of wine and took advantage of the corking fee. The meal was over $280 for four people and the food was just okay. The portions were really small, which is okay if you have big flavor, but that was not the case. I had a very boring fish dish and another friend of mine had burned flank steak. We will not be going back.

The portions were really small, which is okay if you have big flavor, but that was not the case. I had a very boring fish dish and another friend of mine had burned flank steak. We will not be going back.

I go to many restaurants that seem to just go through "the paces" of bringing you something to eat but, Woodfire Grill is different. Recommended to me as a great special occasion place so I took my wife for her birthday, but after seeing that they have small plates, pizzas, and what they call tastes, we will be back for dinner very soon. (I saw their Burger pass by my table and began to drool)
Our food came out fresh, I swear my salmon was still moving, my wife had the softshell very tasty. Great and affordable wine list , pleasant staff from bar/ server to the chefs in the open kitchen.

Pros: valet, fresh fish / dessert, wine list/choice/pric
