“It really DOES live up to its reputation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Met here with 2 friends for lunch today (May, 2014) mostly because of the parking lot next to the restaurant, but also because the reviews were so good. The hosts were gracious, servers knew the menu and food preparation perfectly and were able to answer questions for a guest with food allergies, and the service was exquisite. I happen to be a martini fan, and for the first time in my experience, when my beautifully served martini glass had lost its chill, the server brought a freshly chilled glass to the table and transferred my remaining martini to the chilled glass. I was impressed! All luncheon orders were delicious - crab cakes, Arctic Char, and prime rib. The only reason this review has 4 stars rather than 5 is that the prime rib, while delicious in taste, had far more gristle and tendon in it than it should have had. It was done to a perfect medium-rare, but a part of it was inedible. However, I will be back to this restaurant when I am next in Bethesda for any reason at all !

Thanks folks for making our dining experience unique and awesome on Mother's Day for dinner. They did not disappoint us and once again delivered their excellent presentation and service.

Will keep coming back and I mean this because quality is hard to find.

“Make Your Reservation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Woodmont Grill is always busy because the food is so good. My favorites are the Rib Eye Steak, the Crab Cakes and the House Salad with the goat cheese and walnuts. Be sure to try their special "Spicy Mayo".. It/s spicy and tastes like nothing you've ever had.

Enjoy!

“Been here several times…Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

My husband used to go here all the time from his office. He finally took me…wow. Have tried several things on the menu and it has all been wonderful. The menu is not huge but you will surely find something youwill enjoy. A few of the items we have tried included the roasted artichokes, mediterranean sea bass, ahi tuna, kale salad, ice cream sundae a must, apple dessert, can't remember everything however just remember it was all great! The service is also very attentive! They have a parking lot along side the restaurant which really helps since parking in Bethesda can sometimes be difficult. Also has limited outside seating.

“Consistently crowded noisy and good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

It's usually a wait but it's always worth it- good drinks and appetizers such as grilled baby artichokes or spinach dip to start followed by great burgers , a wonderful fish sandwich, chicken tenders not on the menu - just ask , as well as entrees such as ribs and steak . The fries are yum and try to share a dessert
