Great food, excellent service!

Best burger on the island. Pizza is delicious. We had excellent service and although some menu items are a bit pricey the organic, local ingredients, atmosphere and service are worth it!

With temperatures soaring above 30 degrees and 2 dogs left in a vehicle with the windows cracked, I asked first the server and then the manager to please ask customers if this was their vehicle. Small restaurant, maybe 15 tables and I was told, by the manager "we are too busy, it's not my problem" and then by a server,... More

This is our third attempt at "enjoying" something tonight at the wood fire. This time we ordered a Lock Bay to go and got it home to only find out the bottom was completely burnt. We will not return nor would I recommend it to anyone.

I am very sorry to hear this and truly apologise for you receiving a burnt pizza. We have several checks to make sure customers go away happy and I am very disappointed that they all were not in place for your experience of Woodfire. Whenever we serve takeout the food gets checked before we box it. A burnt pizza should... More

We tried the organic chicken salad with walnuts and goat cheese and it was delicious. Our friends shared a seafood platter and they said it was excellent. Our server was helpful and very attentive.

Sure, you can get some crazy toppings on some of their 'bestsellers' but I always went the route of pepperoni and cheese. Two large pizzas (pepperoni and then just cheese) came out to be $40+ but I can't even think of another place on Gabriola that serves pizza and I doubt it would top Wildfire's recipes. My parents are from... More

Thank you so much for your enthusiatic review of Woodfire. We really appreciate the feedback. As you will see in another response, 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 can be labour intensive. We never compromise on... More

Woodfire never disappoints! Whether we stop in for a quick lunch or dodge our own kitchen with out-of-town guests, the food is consistently fresh and good, the service efficient and friendly, and the atmosphere light with a hint of umami.

My wife's choice of the halibut and chips special at $28 was way overpriced for what she got. I had the seafood special which was a salmon done medium rare which I liked a scallop also cooked very nice and a piece of tuna which was over cooked on some roasted vegetables and roasted potatoes. I felt the vegetables were... More

Thanks for your review Rob. We are sorry you didn't fully enjoy your Woodfire experience. We do only serve fresh, local quality seafood from sustainable sources. This is why are prices maybe a little higher than other restaurants, if they are using frozen seafood. This is in no way a judgement on other restaurants as I only focus on what... More

Thank you very much for your review. Just to address the price issue, we do try to be as competitive with our pricing as we can be but we do only use the freshest, quality ingredients in all of our dishes. Everything on the menu except the gelato, is made in house. We use only the freshest seafood never previosuly... More

Woodfire Restaurant and Catering were recommended to us for a large group that we were hosting on Gabriola Island this past week.

I had a great meal at this restaurant and the service was very good. The Gertie Fries would easily feed two but they are hard to share because they are soooo good! I will certainly return.
