Local restaurant that we frequently go to.

Excellent variety of dishes, pizza is their specialty and every pizza is special, not the usual pizza fare. All of their food is excellent including hamburgers, pasta's and specialty dishes.

This is one of the best meals I have ever had. It was a Valentines Day special menu. 3 courses and 3 or 4 choices per course. My appetizer was a salad and beef carpaccio that was decadent. Main was pork belly with fresh beans on a vegetable puree with an unbelievable demi-glace. Desert was a trio of different chocolate... More

The owners and staff are always welcoming. A good solid knowledge of what is on the menu. Food is a bit expensive But consistent. Menu is updated to keep it fresh and interesting. They have a good wine selection as well. We really do look forward to going there.

We were there celebrating a birthday. We had cioppino (filled with yummy seafood in a tomatoe base) and my partner had pan fried prawns. Both fabulous and so full of flavor. A must if you are on Gabriola

Last night we enjoyed one of the best meals we have ever had! We ordered the Seafood Grill which included shrimp, scallops, black cod and sockeye salmon, along with appetizer and dessert. The seafood was exquisitely prepared; it was obvious the chef knew how to handle grilling fish. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fine... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review. It's funny but we ran a little Woodfire contest on pizzas the other week. We named the one you had The Bridge and created another one called The Ferry and waited to see which one came out on top. The Bridge won but we had to change it's name as most people... More

Woodfire is serious about quality and presentation of all their dishes. I always have the Pizza, so I can't speak to other dishes. The Pizza is very good. There is a good selection, and they will mix and match a bit if you ask. It's a classy place, a bit pricy, but worth it.

Thank you very much for your review. We do pride ourselves with using the best quality ingredients on our pizzas. Our tomato sauce comes direct from Italy and the pizza flour we use is the best you can buy. Thank you for appreciating the quality of our products. More

Pleasant restaurant with good atmosphere and friendly, efficient serving staff. I've heard their pizza is quite good. We had the cream soup which was excellent. Decided to try the fish for the main course which was way over done and kind of a disappointment for a hefty price. I think they excel at pasta and pizza. Fish...not so much.

Thank you very much for your feedback. I am very sorry that your fish was overcooked. We very rarely get that comment as the chefs are typically cooking the fish to perfection and the feedback is usually extremely positive. I am truly sorry that this was not the case for you. Please accept our apologies and I hope you will... More

The staff was very friendly, and the decor was very comfortable! I had the baked lasagna, well the flavors were amazing! My man had the grilled chicken burger with goat cheese and caramelised onions, fries, salad! But the only sad part is we ate all our food because it was so good, and did not have room for desert!!
