“Delicious food and a fun place for lunch”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I love going to Filoli in the morning and then to the Woodside Bakery with friends for lunch. Especially after going to the before Christmas sale at Filoli. The food is wonderful and priced well.

“Great local restaurant”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

I live close by this restaurant and eat here often. I think the food is delicious and the service is great. They have nightly specials and wine pairing. The rack of lamb is one of my favorites and if you like sweets, this is the best bakery around. I suggest if you have a problem ordering bakery goods, ask to speak to the manager.

“Pastries....yum!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

I have been going to Woodside Bakery for years for breakfast and lunch. The food is always good (not fab), the latte's yummy, pastries are very nice too. I've even taken a cheesecake from here to a party - was a total hit, light, fluffy and very creamy (not the dense type of cheesecake). I recommend reservations as it's generally busy (and you will still need to wait a little) and on a nice day the back patio is wonderful. The salad (what I usually order) are fresh and decent, the Salmon Salad was really nice. The service is consistently good, not speedy, but good. Parking can be a challenge on a busy weekend, arrive a little early.

“Fine Dining in Woodside, California”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

Came here for rthe first time on a family vacation and really enjoyed it.
We had a variety of entrees - pasta, salads, etc., and all were tasty. Fresh ingredients and nothing overdone. Would certainly recommend the artichoke ravioli. Naturally-raised King Salmon and Spinach Salad was tasty, if a bit skimpy on the salmon compared with what we expected.
Service was mostly good, though never got a coffee refill after the bill was paid. Atmosphere pleasant, casual, friendly. Prices moderate to north of that, particularly if add wines, but not nearly as pricey as many "name" restaurants, or even some hotel restaurants.
Menu at woodsidebakery.com/menus/dinner_menu.pdf.
Overall, a good place to dine, particularly if going to see the Folger ranch/park that is about 12 minutes drive and has many pleasant trails to walk ( parks.ca.gov ).
Would come here again.

“Inside, outside, family or friends.”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

Four friends had late Saturday lunch on a very busy afternoon. Good sandwiches, soups, desserts. Rather scattered service but understandable as crowds were waiting. We'd go again, and, we'd also be glad to choose from take out menu.
