Success! Thanks for posting your review of Woodward's Garden. You’ve done the world some good today.

Romantic restaurant and great food!

I was very pleased with my experience at Woodward's Garden. The service was great (I am pretty sure it was one of the owners) and the meal was fantastic. It was nice because you didn?t feel rushed through your meal.(mine was a salad, then my entree and we or desert. There was no get out of here vibe that most restaurants put on you once you've stopped eating. That alone makes Woodward's stand out in the crowd.

alas, a disappointment

it all started with making the reservation:\r they were rather abrupt with us and made us believe that they were bending over backwards to ""fit us in"" & although we were making reservations the same day of our dinner, i did not expect the attitude. being an optimist, though, i was secure in knowing that the reservation was secure and i was looking forward to the experience. once there, the restaurant was half em... view more

Attention Foodies

I decided I had to try this spot after seeing this restaurant featured on PBS' s""Check, Please! Bay Area"" program. The experience lived up to all my expectations. I agree with the previous reviewer, who felt that the location near the freeway made you feel like you were in an intimate New York restaurant, with the cars whizzing by. My boyfriend and I went during prime time, on a Saturday night but I never felt ... view more

What a find - great food and wine

Looking for a great restaurant then you should try Woodward's Garden. It's tucked away under the freeway overpass which makes it an interesting spot. We sat by the window and the cars buzzing by was reminiscent of a busy New York street and added to the ambiance. OK on to the food and wine. There were 2 of us dining and we thoughly enjoyed the experience. Try the salad with shaved cheese and the figs with prosci... view more

Really wanted to like this place

A friend recommended this restaurant. I loved the atmosphere of the place when we walked in. The menu looked great and the restaurant had a really comfortable, ""locals"" feel to it. I am not a high-maintenance restaurant go-er by any means, but I do like to get what I pay for. And for these prices, I was rather disappointed. Service was awkward and I sensed that they were understaffed--the 2 servers were rushin... view more

If you consider worrying whether your car will still be there after you meal romantic, then by all means. Romantic. The food is capably done, but it's a hard swallow to pay those prices when you're dining in that neighborhood, under a freeway ramp.

Went in with too many expecctations...

My boyfriend had been wanting to try this place out, so for his birthday I decided to take him here. We had read all of the reviews, seen the menu and were so excited. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a let down - not entirely, just a bit.\r \r The space is so quaint, and I loved that I felt as if I was in a friend's home. The staff was so attentive, but the food was not as tasty as I would have hoped, and was a b... view more

The food here was amazing. Although their menu is small everything sounded amazing and it changes according to what foods are in season. I am a vegetarian as well, so there were fewer options, but I didn't care because what I could eat, was delicious. I would definitly reccomend it. I liked that while the food was upscale, the restaurant itself, was warm and inviting. If you sit in the front room you get to see ... view more

pretty good food, not that romantic

I heard such nice things about the atmosphere of this place but it was nothing special. Most of the dishes were tasty, particularly the pork chop and the corn chowder. The wine list had very few moderately priced selections. I don't know - can't see any reason to go back in a city with so many places to try.

best comfort food and very romantic

i came here on my birthday and it was by far the best food i have had in a long time. their portions are generous, and the food was flavorful and hearty. it is located underneath the freeway, a little strange, but i think that if it was located anywhere else it would be super packed. the service was a little spotty, but honestly, the food speaks for itself, when most resturants are going smaller portions, it is repre... view more
