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.

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

Thank you very much for this wonderful review and apologies for my delayed response. It is always fun to do the special menus for Valentine's and other special occasions in the year. It gives Chef chance to deviate from the main menu and come up with exciting new dishes. We also offer some wine pairing dinners throughout the year which... 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
