Nice Variety in a Pleasant Dark Setting

Good selections are offered here in a semi-dark dining room with lights at each table. It is comfortable and inviting. Occasionally, live music if offered near the bar, which is fairly nicely stocked. On nice evenings it's possible to eat outside. Off street parking is also available, which is... read more

My family and I went for a birthday dinner. Everyone really enjoyed their appetizers and meals. We were a party of 7 and one person had some food allergies. Our waitress did an awesome job tailoring the meal to avoid allergies. I really liked the seared tuna and they had a very nice cauliflower seasonal vegetable. The Hawaiian steak was... More

This restaurant is conveniently located right next to the Bethesda Court Hotel. Whether you want a hamburger or fresh fish fit for any foodie, you will enjoy the experience. Indoor or outdoor eating, full bar and prompt, pleasant and efficient service.

Woodmont is part of a chain of restaurants, but It was my first time eating at this one. I made reservations for 915 as this was the only time available. We only had to wait a few minutes for our table to be ready upon checking in. The wait staff was very professional and friendly. Everything came out hot and... More

Can I tell you what's making me come back again and again to the Woodmont Grill? The food is great, that is true. I could kill for their barbecue ribs, and my buddy and I can't help trying to scoop up all of the spinach and artichoke dip for ourselves. And my friend, Karen, says that she dreams about the...

If your in the mood for a clubby, neighborhood steakhouse feel -- this is your place. I love eating at the bar whether solo or with a friend. Staff is professional and friendly. Its full of locals and newcomers. The ribs are not to be missed! But the fish of the day is always a winner.

One of the best restaurants in the area. The RIBS are to die for. They were tender well seasoned and just plain yummy! Great service and they did not automatically add in a tip. Personally, I like that. My husband a fish that we were told was seasonal called Char. It's similar to Salmon. He had it blackened and said... More

We had dinner here with our son who studies in DC. Live music, very friendly staff and great atmosphere. The food: unpretentious but very good indeed. Erin, our studying waitress was a delight. We had a great time. The bill: a pleasant surprise. Exactly how a restaurant should be!

This place is one of the best in the area. Food is great - AlWAYS and service is on point (if you're not including the fact there is always a wait). Call early in the day - they do have limited reservations available.

This is my go-to-place for great food, drinks, and live jazz music. If you are in the market for ribs look no further as Woodmont Grill will serve you the best in town.
