I and a few of my friends have been coming to the bar area of this place for Friday night drinks. Unlike most other places it offers a chance to actually hear each other and have clean bathrooms. Other than that it's an average place with no flare or spark, but very high ceiling. Bar area resembles a one you... More

Redwood is a good restaurant. It is pretty, the food is tasty, the service is good, it has the potential do be really good but it needs to think outside the box a bit more. Everything is good but it lacks spark.

My friend who lives in Bethesda suggested this place for a friendly gathering. It was a Wednesday evening, six of us made their way to Redwood, which features a big dinning hall (yep, that is what it looked like to me) average food in a busy alley on Bethesda Row. There is really nothing special about this place: salads, fish... More

Good food with a slight gourmet twist. Go for their solid happy hour with great deals for both drinks and food. The crowd is so-so, but the food will make up for it.

Redwood has a super outside seating area on a pedestrian-only space, with lots of people walking by in downtown Bethesda. The food is terrific, especially the salads (try the nicoise), and the service is excellent, which is sometimes hard to do with outside seating. I will be back again this summer!

This restaurant has a good food and wine selection and the decor also is pleasant. Either lunch or dinner--will not disappoint. And, for a change--try the veggie burger--quite good and very moist!

My cousin I went here twice during March Martini Madness on Bethesda Row... the Happy Hour menu was excellent with very reasonable prices and the specialty drink for Martini Madness was superb! The bartender and staff were extremely busy but still managed to pay us just the right amount of attention. I've also dined here at lunch and at dinner... More

The ambiance is simple elegant, the service is prompt, the food is tasty, and the prices are reasonable by Washington standards. What else could you want. Maybe slightly larger portions, and some simple salads.
