Despite operating under social distancing, once again Woodberry Kitchen excelled in every category. Wonderful dining experience in comfortable outdoor setting.

By far the best restaurant in Baltimore, pre-pandemic but especially during these strange times. The Woodberry team has figured out how to create a setting and experience that makes you feel like not all normalcy and beauty has been lost this year. And they’ve done it while adhering to the highest standards of safety. As vegan diners, they also went above and beyond to direct us through the plethora of options for us, including saving freshly baked chocolate chip cookies for us to have a sweet finish. Much love for this place!

Outdoor ambiance was awesome; servers followed COVID safety precautions. Love the food selection — my crab cake was delicious! I’m not a fan of vinegar though and my potatoes were too vinegary for my liking. Everything else was great - butter corn pudding was to die for!

Interesting choices and good variety of foods. The small plates were particularly imaginative, and the outside, socially distanced dining was handled well--nice patio with firepit--no asphalt. One thought--most items are either very rich or very sweet or both. Accordingly, serving some plain bread to offset part of the richness might be desirable.

Only disappointment: we requested black coffee to accompany the dessert, as is our custom. To our great surprise we were served COLD/ iced coffee in the evening. Neither of us like iced coffee and were unable to order hot coffee as a replacement.

Too many woodburning stoves with too much smoke. The tents and smoke pretty much ruined the ambience of sitting outside. The menu options were unnecessarily complicated. During this time of limited staff and ingredients, just keep it simple with food that will fill people up. The food and drinks we had were good but we just left early because we spent 200$ and were still super hungry and sick of the smoke. We went home, made dinner, and washed our clothes because they stunk like smoke.

I took my girlfriend here for a lovely dinner and all was well until she got sick instantly from a peanut allergy. The menu failed to state that any food contained peanuts. We ordered two items that no one would even think about having peanuts as the ingredients, however they both had peanuts. I think for a nice venue such as this place, they should list the foods that contain allergens especially for peanuts. The manager also didn’t know how to handle the situation, and we were quite shocked.

Dined there Sunday for brunch, outdoor seating available only at this time which was fine for me since I have no interest in dining indoors at this time. Servers were friendly and explained contact less payment. Brunch options were many, it starts with a refreshing watermelon juice , bread/ muffin tray and ends with fruit and sorbet. I had the crab cakes eggs . Benedict. Delish!!

A safe and comforting experience. I thought I was going to get a "compromised" version of the Woodberry experience eating outdoors but it was even better than eating in the dining room. The smell of smoke from the communal fire, everyone wearing masks and being respectful, staff being friendly but also giving diners their space - the whole experience was flawless. As was the food. Anthony Bourdain repeatedly states the hallmark of a good resto is how good their chicken is: the cast iron chicken was flawless. As was the wine we had with it. And the bread. And the corn basil soup. The only downside (and I've experienced this many times with Woodberry), is that our reservation was for 9:45 and we got seated at 10:15 PM. Minor downside to an overwhelmingly wonderful experience.

I'm blown away by how great an experience we had for Sunday brunch. Fantastic food, great live music, and they went above and beyond to make us feel safe during Covid. My only suggestion is that they add the information about the pre fixe menu for brunch to the website, since it's a bit pricey without knowing that that was our only option. If you want a bit of a more indulgent brunch, though, we had a fantastic experience!

I must say that I am very impressed with Woodberry's approach to opening and adapting to an entirely different world post-COVID19. The staff is professional, the single-use menus are a great idea, the different water bottles at the table for guests to use is creative as well. More importantly, the quality of the food and service has not changed, and that's what has kept us returning to Woodberry year after year.

Probably one of the best dining experiences we have had in years. I asked for Jay and asked that he make it special for a birthday celebration. He made it over the top perfect. The hostess was so professional and lovely. The young man who brought our drinks was polite and helpful. Terrific experience! Thank you

Great experience dining outdoors at Woodberry Kitchen ! Tables were well-spaced and everything was subtly tweaked to be Covid-safe without detracting from the dinner experience. Food was excellent, as were the drinks and service. A+++!!!

The breakfast pizza lacked seasoning. The pastries were delicious. The mimosa could have been stronger on the alcohol. Customer service was great. Important to note that you need to raise the green flag to notify your server that you are ready to order.
