Great restaurant

Fantastic service and food. The pizza and salad was delicious. The cheesecake was so good too. Was able to enjoy a beautiful sunset from our seat because of the huge windows. Will most definitely be returning next time I visit gabriola.

The food selection and quality was much better than I expected, wonderful. We sat outside and enjoyed the marina view. The staff were friendly and the service was excellent.

Stopped to get some info at the tourism office next door but it was closed (even though it was supposed to be open until 6pm) so we decided to get a bite to eat before we started our island exploration. It was the smell of the burning wood that attracted our attention and taste buds. We ordered the pizza special... More

The restaurant is beautiful & cozy with great staff & service. I can't say enough about the wood fired pizza and how delicious and unique it is. My husband ordered a 10" 'Decourcy' and I had the 10" 'Dragon's Keep'. Both were amazing and more than enough food… we were full. All the rest of the food that we saw... More

We've been regulars at Woodfire since it opened, and whenever we have visitors on island we reserve a large table and they always rave about how amazing the food is!

All these nice reviews, and I couldn't really find anything right with this place. The food is ok, not great, but whats worse is the pricing. I know it's the island and it's a little bit more, but this seems pretty exorbitant for what you get. The staff seem over worked, stressed and generally miserable, I actually felt sorry for... More

I am sorry you didn't find Woodfire to your satisfaction. As you can see we usually receive very good reviews so this is quite concerning to us. Regarding our pricing, the prices are reflective of the quality of ingredients we use in all of our dishes and the labour that goes into the dishes. We hand make everything so dishes... More

Thank you very much for your kind review and for hilighting the great location we have. We are just a 2 minute drive up from the ferry and for those in a rush, you can call ahead to order your pizza so it will be ready for you when you get off the ferry. Thank you. More

Amazing fresh pizza, the kids burgers were huge with fresh greens and tomatoes, fries salted perfectly. The seafood fettuccine with muscles and chipotle was crazy good. Cheesecake with the fresh berry sauce was made in house. Insanely scrumptious. Wife had the creme brûlée and kept going on and on about it. I wish it had a branch in Vancouver !!!!... More

I find the service, friendly, informative and efficient. They are not subservient; they are professional. I value this. They take pride in their work and they care for each other from the owners to the management to the wait staff (I imagine to the kitchen staff as well, but haven't been back there!)
