We have been going to Woodmont Grill for at least five years because the food is excellent, the service is efficient, and professional, and the nightly jazz is awesome.

Woodmont Grill is a Bethesda staple year round for lunch and dinner. With beautiful dark wood interior along both the long bar and many booths that add class, don't be fooled into thinking you can't find down home treats. The burgers and ribs are both amazing and the spinach and artichoke dip has long been the best in the neighborhood.... More

Great atmosphere with live jazz. Good fine dining experience with attentive staff. Went for a business dinner and had the Filet Mignon. Surprisingly, they did not have sauteed mushrooms. A steak should have good mushrooms, but they don't even offer it. The mashed potatoes were smooth and tasty, and the veggies were cooked right. The steak was tender and juicy,... More

Excellent choice for lunch. And dinner. One of the top places to lunch in Bethesda. Need reservations or expect to wait during lunch. The sandwiches are outstanding as are the burgers. I heard they grind the meat each morning for the burgers. Crab cakes and salads. Fresh ingredients prepared expertly. You're sure to find something that interests you and it... More

Service attentive. Jazz band in eve sets the tone for casual but chic atmosphere.... More

I had a very well prepared meal here with a friend. It was a bit expensive for lunch and service was slow (we were certainly not rushed out). It is a comfortable place to eat and the booths are done in a way where you can have a conversation.

I am a huge fan. The club feel and subtle live music set the tone. Consistently delicious food and friendly expedient service bring it home. So consistent in fact, I have eaten hear scores of time and never had a single bad experience. Upscale casual at it's best. Must try- Spinach & Artichoke dip. Prime rib sandwich, Hawaiian steak, any... More

We ate here twice on our trip. Service was terrific, especially in that we didn't have reservations and they keep quite a few tables open for transients. Food was terrific.
