Decided to stop by with some friends while on the island for dinner, and I am so glad we did. We sampled each other's food and everything on the table was absolutely delicious! We were all raving about it well into the next day, and will definitely be back sometime.

The restaurant is very aesthetically pleasing, the food was amazing and our server was attentive, knowledgeable, but not overbearing. We arrived early so there was no wait and our choice for which table we sat at. The server gave us the specials from memory and answered a couple of questions we had regarding ingredients without missing a beat. Our server... More

Yes, I have reviewed Woodfire Restaurant before. 5 years ago, on our birthday weekend, we explored Gabriola Island on our bikes and loved it. So, we experienced it again. This time we drove. It was a bit blowy and rainy this time, but for veteran country folk, a storm is just entertainment and not a burden. We settled in for... More

Atmosphere is low lighting dining. Staff is friendly and timely. I have been to this restaurant many times over the past 3 years and the food is always delicious. Taste sensation!

They make a great crust, and use there's good coverage of ingredients; I love watching the woodfire oven if I come early for pickup. My favorite is the Sandwell pizza, with prawns and spinach. You have to plan somewhat in advance because it's popular - about 45 minutes from when you call in (on a Friday night). I was pleased... More

This restaurant is one of our many highlights when we are on Gabriola - we simply love the food & it would rate highly against any top restaurants! The Cioppino is the very best we have tasted! Along with many other dishes! The service is always great even when they are busy & they certainly can be but we never... More

We eat here whenever we are on Gabriola. Excellent food cooked in their woodfire oven; love the cioppino, pizzas are fantastic, and everything is really good value. Beautiful deserts as well. It's all good.
