Went here because of other reviews and they were spot on. Staff VERY knowledgeable about the menu. Only had time for some appetizers but they were good. Beef tenderly bites were a bit chewy but tasty and the coconut shrimp were outstanding. We will go back for dinner next time we are in town.

My husband and I like to come here for special occasions. This was our second time here and we were not disappointed. The service and ambience are warm and relaxed. The food is great - we both had sea bass with a chipotle cream sauce served over wilted spinach. While the fish was some of the best I've ever had,... More

Had dinner here and chose this location after reading other online reviews of the establishment. The food was great and cooked exactly to our specifications. Our server was very polite and added to the experience of fine dining. The fire theme of the restaurant was tastefully implemented in a way that was both very present yet unobtrusive. Others have remarked... More

My husband and I each ordered a fish entree and shared and both were delicious. The avocado spring rolls were a perfect appetizer. My favorite part about the whole experience was the wine. You can prepay on a wine card and serve yourself to any types of wine from what I would almost describe as a "wine vending machine." It... More

Its our choice for stopping by for a drink and appetizer at the bar, or for an always quality full dinner menu. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable about menu and drink or wine items and as or more professional than quality restaurants around the world. The overall restaurant atmosphere is unique and relaxed yet "elegant"; it works for all occasions.... More

This was our choice for a fine dining romantic evening. We were not disappointed. The waiter was very knowledgeable on the selection of food for courses as well as the selection of wine to accompany the food. The food and wine were fantastic. We would highly recommend the Woodfire Grille for a great experience.

Reservations are highly recommended unless one goes early on a week night. It tends to be very crowded and noisy, the noise both from the bar at the front of the restaurant and if there is a party in the back room. The food is very good, pricey, and service is mediocre or good. The fireplace helps to create a... More
