The kitchen is slow at no fault to the wait staff. Expect to wait.
Drinks/food were AMAZING . Overall great place to dine in
Collin waited on us and he was amazing and attentive. My girlfriend and I were celebrating her bday and what a special place to be at. We sat outside and it was lovely. Very nicely spaced and very clean. We ordered a Manhattan and a margarita and the drinks were very tasty and strong. They were perfect. For food we ordered the burger and Asian salad. Burger and fries were incredible. Burger was juicy and tender and fries had the perfect crisp. For her bday that delivered two different ice creams. I must say, that had to be some of the best home made ice cream I've ever had. It was lemon sorbet with jalapenos and mint and damn it was delicious. The other was chocolate and let's just say, we killed it! Thanks for a great evening!
Fantastic drinks, great service, easy location for an afternoon of fun.
Our server was excellent, small but interesting wine menu. Food was very good, just not much of it. Appetizers were small, hard to share with four people.
Having said that, I would go back again, but would be able to better order given my knowledge of the menu.
I love this place.
My go to stop.
I never feel alone and I have a good time.
Delicious meal as always! Lucky to have Wood in the neighborhood.
Great place with great service
Delicious food, wonderful service, Wood is a favorite of ours and never disappoints!
Wood is an excellent option for Chicago dining. Everything is fresh and the menu changes accordingly. Great service, ambience, and cuisine. Top notch with reasonable pricing.
A great friend and I visited snd we shared the Ribeye for 2.
It was OUTSTANDING.
Colin was our water and terrific.
Another great night at WOOD!
Food was not great and don’t get the peach cobbler. Peaches not peeled, barely warm and no sugar.
Might be the best staff in the city, between the wonderful service and the care the chefs put into the menu. Really can't recommend this place enough.
Our favorite neighborhood restaurant by a landslide!!
Great food, fabulous cocktails, and perfect service.
Such a stark contrast to previous visits. Our waiter Scott ruined a special occasion with his complete lack of caring and having the nerve to argue with me about how long it took the entree to come out.
Wood has absolutely taken a turn for the worse.
Incredible drinks, food and service!
WOOD is back and BETTER than EVER!! With a temporary disruption to my favorite haunt just prior to Covid due to changes in the kitchen, let's just say WOOD course-corrected and is now one of what I consider the 2 best places in Lakeview. Hallelujah! Food is now again creative without being intimidating, familiar without being cliche, and the service standard is top notch (Collin is as adorable, flirtatious, and coy as ever..). Casual Chic is how I describe WOOD, and it's everything we want. Welcome back WOOD!!
Collin was fabulous! He was friendly and informative. We chose everything he recommended. I had the duck... DELICIOUS! We'll be back.
Excellent variety of seasonal dishes with a number of both small and large options for vegetarians. Delicious cocktails and cordial service.
I can’t wait to go back to Wood. I heard great things but it exceeded expectations all the way around! One of the best burgers I’ve had in Chicago (and I’ve had many..) along with great wine, dessert and ambiance. Can’t wait to eat my way through the menu and take advantage of the Hump Day Happy Hour again!
Best steak I've had in years. Excellent cheese board and drinks. Marco was fantastic. My new favorite restaurant
Food was very average, fish was over cooked, sauce was bland and arrived cold. Chicken Milanese was tasty but overcooked as well and greasy - plating could use help in both cases. Charcuterie board unimpressive, sliced deli like items and very sparse overall, not worth it. Wine list short but offers good choices. Great server, fun ambiance, might be back for drinks and shared small plates if hungry.
Nice value fine dining in Boystown! Duck beast, Monk fish and steak and brisket we all excellent. Terrific service and well spaced tables in the North dining room! I looked up who is in the kitchen now I was so impressed since it is not on the Wood website yet!?
“Chef Devin brings a fine dining background to Wood, having worked in Philadelphia's Le Bec-Fin, New York City's SHO Shaun Hergatt, and Chicago Michelin-starred institutions North Pond and Sixteen. Most recently he served as Chef de Cuisine at Boka Group's Bellemore in the West Loop.”
This may have been the best meal I have ever had at Wood. I lived in Chicago for several years and dined her fairly regularly. The chef really turned it out and the staff was amazing. Can’t wait for my next trip to see what’s new on the menu.
Great happy hour deals!
Several excellent dishes, sauces were great.
Always a stellar experience!
Nice outdoor seating, if a bit loud due to traffic. Very good service. The food was great and the chef made great modifications due to allergy.
Cheese board is a must have!
Amazing server, amazing cocktails, amazing food all around!
Love it every time I go to Wood!
It’s one of my favorite places!
We booked a 2:45 reservation NOT knowing it was the last one of the day and they closed at 3p. We were early by 2 minutes. The service was awful. They were short with us, rushed us to order, did not wear masks and hovered over us. I had to order for my husband and we could only get one drink (because they were closing) and they were out of food that we wanted to order. The food for the price was mediocre and the woman at the table next to us outside was coughing and sneezing and no one had on masks. It was my daughters 21st birthday and we told them five times and they finally brought out a bowl of ice cream - that was nasty - cucumber or something. It was suppose to be a special occasion and it was a disaster. Our first meal out in 18 months because of the pandemic and they were rude, forced us to order within 5 minutes and were not attentive. They also did not wear masks and leaned over us at the table. We had to put on our masks and try to eat under the masks. Terrible!
Colin was excellent
Food is consistently good! Great service and the overall experience was spot on!
Dinner with family….
Great place for awesome food.
Excellent food and service…
Had the pasta, steak, tar tar, cheese plate and salmon….
