"Sit at a long wood table in a fairly spartan, slightly cold (in the winter) room. Service was tremendous and the preparations were all quite fascinating. We had 5 course prixe fixe and the pork was a bit oversalted in my mind, but still tasty, and the other presentations tasted great. Mixologist preparations also quite fun."

Jeffrey and Sallie Buben&#39;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 &quot;table&quot; 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&#39;s cooking involves creating seasonal iconic American dishes, a chef&#39;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, available to eat in or take out. Woodward Takeout Food is like being in a good cook&#39;s kitchen...a venue of sights and sounds with the bakery of the entire restaurant located at one end. Smell the fresh baked bread and other concoctions as you place your ord

From the kitchen to the bar, everything we serve is defined by a passion for exploring unique flavor combinations. Wood is more than a name: our wood-fired oven is at the heart of it all, mustering a dynamic menu of small-plate, American fare, made with the best ingredients the season has to offer. Though the dishes regularly change, they are defined by a few constants: meat is butchered in-house from humanely-raised animals; vegetables are drawn from family farms like Green Acres (North Judson, IN), Three Sisters (Kankakee, IL), and Spence Farm (Fairbury, IL); herbs are picked directly from Wood’s private garden; and all pasta and sausage are freshly made, straight from the Wood kitchen to the plate. We bring the same attention to quality and taste to Backwoods, our late-night Belgian fry pick-up window. Made from hand-cut Kennebec potatoes, twice-fried in the traditional Belgian style, and served with your choice of a dozen different house-made sauces, these aren’t your average f

"Had a fun time with the Barbakoa specialty margarita and their huge list of tequilas, as well as their interesting dishes. Service was friendly and attentive, just a bit odd that the server only offered two of the desserts to us, stating "those are the two that are the best so there's no need to see the others." We saw another server showing a whole dessert tray of options to another table. Very weird."

"Delicious pork belly/egg and devil's eggs appetizers. Filets cooked to perfection. Salmon with it was just a bit overdone. Fantastic martinis. Service was noticeably inattentive, and that was quite surprising considering how Eddie's is known for great service."

"Great ambiance and super pro friendly service. Cuts of meat are below standard in my opinion, for the price. 3 steaks served at our table, all tougher than one would expect."
