Cutting Corners - Not as Good as it Once Was

Woodmont Grill seems to be slipping. We ate there last night and while the menu has always been limited and expensive, and the service way too fast, they seem to be cutting corners and not all the food is as good as it used to be. Water is not provided unless requested. There is no bread and... read more

We visited this restaurant with a group of business friends and sat down for dinner and wine. We had a table outside and the waitress was great - her name was Tiara. Attentive and very nice. Unfortunately halfway through our meal Tiara was ordered (by faceless and clearly timid management) to tell us that they have a "policy" not to... More

I was excited to visit the restaurant based on all the reviews I read. When we arrived and read the menu, we realized it was just another part of the Houston's chain. The wait staff was attentive; the jazz music too loud to have a conversation with your dinner guests, and the salmon was average.

Food is consistently good, but depending on your server you could be in for a long wait. I have had amazing service here for lunch and dinner, but in the last six months it's been consistently inconsistent. Tuesday - waited twenty minutes for our food order to be taken, then it arrived in separate chunks and we had to repeatedly... More

Our lunch this past week will be remembered in my scrapbook of wonderful memories.We had been away and it was some time ago when we were last at Woodmont Grill. It is always a good place to go with family or friends. The lunch date started with a flourish of recognition and genuine warmth from Diana, the hostess, who welcomed... More

This is part of the Houstons/Hillstone group. This restaurant used to be our regular when we lived nearby, now we visit on occasion when in town. I invited four friends to join me for lunch, while my husband met with 3 at another table. It was very busy when we arrived (11:45 am) but we had a reservation. The hostess... More

I had an excellent meal at this location. The portions are generous and the quality is superb. I had the crab cakes and my wife had a salad with grilled beef in the salad. Both dishes were very good. We used the sidewalk seating and the ambiance was great. I originally was going to continue enjoying the evening by going... More

The food and service are really good, however There isn't anything out of the ordinary or creative on the menu. The place is dark - I wish they'd turn up the lights - and it's noisy - It's still a good casual place - uncomplicated and consistently good

We enjoy the Woodmont Grill and the professionalism. Somethings have gone awry and it is just out of character for them. The roast chicken pilaf was seasoned with something spicy and this hasn't been the case in the past. The coffee was horrid and after my wife and I returned to the Hotel, we think it's due to bad creamer.... More

The food is heavy on flavor and delicious. Patio dining is shaded in the evening and affords people-watching. Indoor dining is dark and formal, but live music on weekends keeps the mood light.
