After 8 days on the Island, we finally got a good meal (of course, we had to take a ferry to get it). Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal, although we only had the entree. She had the charbroiled salmon with potatoes and arugula. It was done propely. I had the mixed seafood grill. Mine came with... More

We have visited our friends who live on Gabriola and went for a farewell dinner before departure back to the mainland to this restaurant. The interior is nice and well appointed, service very professional and friendly. We have ordered appetizers and main dishes and all were tasty and nicely served. My soup of the day and salad with salmon was... More

My hubby and I had Woodfire cater our wedding 3 years ago and people are still talking about how good the food was. We decided to dine in and were not disappointed. We both loved our meals, and find the price completely worth it for what you get.

We held a little get together on the beach for about 40 people and ordered our pizza from the Woodfire. The selections were great and everyone loved the pizza. I would definitely come back here.

I was very disappointed here. We were asked to come back in half and hour for a table for two, which was no problem. When we returned prior to the half hour being up, we were told that our table had been given to a table of five walk in group. Right away I felt like they didn't value my... More

Dear LiJo I am very sorry to hear you were disappointed with your visit. We take complaints very seriously. I have tried to confirm what happened firstly regarding your seating and it seems that the hostess had made a plan to separate 2 tables to accomodate you but when the five walked in they did get that table simply because...

I ate there with a group and found the food and service to be excellent. Many choices on the menu. We also had lunch prepared for our outdoor events by Woodfire. They provided sandwiches, salad, fruit, and desert. (lots to eat)

Get off your boat. Get off the ferry. Take your car. Whatever. Gabriola is an island. The road... More

Our family (kids ages 9 and 11) shared three 10" pizzas and two salads and were very full when we left! The ingredients were fresh and unique, and the atmosphere was excellent. We will definitely be back to try more of the menu!

This restaurant is a family favourite. Lots of choices on the menu for the whole family and all very tasty. They have a wood fired oven and specialize in custom pizzas but...I have to admit to not being a fan of their crust. Toppings are great but the crust tastes like my mom's bland bisquick. That said, others do not... More

Thank you for your kind words about our restaurant, but I feel I should address your complaint about our crust. The flour we use is a traditional blend imported from Naples Italy called Caputo and has been used in this style oven for centuries, I only use good quality extra virgin olive oil from Sicily, yeast, salt and water.
