Jeffrey and Sallie Buben's Woodward Table, housed in the historic Woodward Building is a concept that exudes a timeless feel with neighborhood charm. Located just one block from The White House, Woodward presents a "table" of dining possibilities with two eateries...the main restaurant with its creative and diverse American menu and Woodward Takeout Food, a sprite artisanal alternative for breakfast and lunch. The soul of Woodward Table's cooking involves creating seasonal iconic American dishes, a chef's contemporary approach and a regional repertoire of ingredients. Woodward Takeout Food, aka WTF, adjacent to the restaurant, creates a quick serve American breakfast or lunch for the busy Washingtonian,

We ate at the Woodward Table last week. It was later in the night so it wasn't very crowded. Unfortunately this did mean slower service. The menu was very eclectic with some southern-style dishes and then things like pizza and trout. We all ordered something...More

I visited the Woodward Table yesterday around 4 pm for a late lunch. Our issues started from the get-go with a very distracted hostess who seated us without menus. Normally, this wouldn't be a deal breaker, but we didn't see our waiter for a long...More

What a great place! Some of us wanted turkey and some didn’t so there were plenty of options here. I usually don’t love salmon but it was excellent!! Good service too.

Great service and the selection for brunch was abundant. I had the EGGS PICADITAS with house-made chorizo, avocado and queso fresco. It was fine but a little bland. I also had one of their buttermilk biscuits and apple butter. That was great. Can’t go wrong...More

Had some really good things here and a few not so great. Atmosphere is ok. Service was good. Wine selection was good and reasonably priced. Crab cakes were great. My steak was almost inedible due to all the garlic. Completely overwhelmed the beef flavor. Probably...More

The food was excellent. However, the service was slow and the restart was ultimately unable to process my credit card payment. I contacted the card issuer to ensure there were no issues, and the server conceded that their system just doesn’t work very well. But...More
