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... read 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.

Heavy on the steak and beef choices, which were very well prepared. good drinks and very pleasant wait staff. Very dark, which was welcome on a super hot day, but sometimes its nice to be able to see your watch. I would go again.

This restaurant is the most consistent of any place I've ever been! I've never had a bad experience. The food is always incredible! The staff is always attentive! We always get the spinach and artichoke dip. I love the chicken club salad, chicken tenders, cheeseburger and roasted chicken. My husband loves their french dip. If you've never been to Woodmont...

First of all, a few caveats: We haven’t gone to the Woodmont Grill very often, and when we do go it’s usually in the early evening before the live music starts, and we haven’t fully explored the menu. Nevertheless, our experience there has been pretty consistent. Inside the restaurant everyone (the greeters, the waiters and the servers) is polite and... More

Randomly stumbled into this place while driving through Bethesda. Customer service is top notch. Before I even got out of the parking lot I was being greeted with all smiles by the valet. As soon as we walked in, we found the place to be a quiet, intimate setting with dimmed lights and bustling kitchen atmosphere. The food was amazing.... More

I walked up to a gaggle of upset customers--ones I thought were unfortunates who didn't reserve. But it turns out that we all had reservations. We just weren't getting seated. For over 20 minutes after our reserved times. With no apology. I left very upset and with few options on a Saturday night. Don't depend on these clowns.

An upscale but casual atmosphere with mellow jazz playing in the background set us up for a great meal. Our waitress, Liz, was extremely pleasant and always checking to ensure we were happy. We started with the artichoke and spinach dip appetizer and it was very good, looked to be freshly made with large pieces of artichoke and spinach. The... More

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

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. Certainly not a bargain outing, we consider an evening meal at Woodmont a treat. Our last visit was on my birthday when I splurged with the Arctic char, beautifully prepared and... More
