“Nice light fare, Great price & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

We were visiting Washington and our friends took us to Woodmont Grill. We arrived at noon on Thursday but only had to wait 10 minutes for a booth.

The prices were pretty reasonable for the DC area considering the quality of the food. I ordered the Thai noodle salad salad with crispy chicken and a side order of tabbouleh. The others had a regular crispy chicken salad and sandwiches.

The service was friendly and quick and the place was very clean. I was impressed with the place and would recommend it without reservation.

“Tough to get seated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

They are quite inflexible with bar seating and it seems I always wait a LONG period of time to get seated. Food prices are high for what you get as they've recently changed up the menu to justify the price increase. It's close to the office so a go-to for business lunches as an option to Black's across the street.

“Not up to the hype”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

When told the wait would be 40-45 minutes, one would expect around that time frame. But when an hour passes and told it would be a few minutes and those few minutes turn into another fifteen, you get a little antsy especially when you are seated after 9pm.
When my wife took a bite of her salmon and it was still cold inside the waitress took it and it was promptly burnt to ensure it was hot enough.
I must include that the manager came to us when we told the waitress we weren't happy. The manager comped our meal but I would rather pay for good meal than get a bad meal for free.

“New to me”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Met a friend there for lunch and had fabulous crab cakes with excellent slaw and fries. We both really enjoyed them but $32? Pricey for lunch.

“Lovely Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I took my husband to this restaurant for this birthday, and we truly enjoyed the experience. It's imperative that you make reservations well in advance. If you don't, you're liable to wait for up to an hour for a table. With reservations, you walk right in. No issues. We were seated in a booth and shortly serviced. We ordered the spinach and artichoke dip and peel and eat shrimp as appetizers. Both were good. The dip didn't have enough chips, but the server asked us if we wanted more and quickly brought them out. I was under the impression that the shrimp would be seasoned with Old Bay. It was really a plate of shrimp cocktail with the shells still on. Our entrees were the day's fresh fish (rock fish) with wilted spinach and the Hawaiian rib-eye with a baked potato. The fish was amazing, and hubby really enjoyed the steak. The food really takes on some serious smoky flavor by being grilled over hardwood. It was awesome! Dessert included the warm five-nut brownie a la mode with Kahlua caramel. Amazing. We were in and out in a little over an hour. We love this place!
