In a nut shell- attended a private party here. Great staff, (I would say great music, but we brought in our own DJ). The DJ booth was nice. The decor- definitely makes the bar unique- its awesome and I don't even like gold! The location is perfect- Little Italy area. I've heard this place is selective, so beware. But once you get inside its really nice venue/bar to host a party

I know the three stars is going against the grain for rateclubs reviews and my opinion is based upon price, execution, service, organization, and flavor. The menu is rather small and focused which I like, but the overall depth of flavor was not as what I would expect from the ingredients and menu descriptions. They just missed on the seasoning and pop in the cuisine that I was so hoping for. My foie( which I will always order) lacked proper acid balance and was over cooked. My Culotte Steak was over done as well and just with the nature of the cut was lacking in a well executed sauce to save from the blandness of the overall dish. Chef Kevin seems like he knows what he is doing but maybe lacks the talent around him to pull off his vision.The pastry department is definately in need of some guidance. I hope to retry Woodfire soon so that I can experience more items and get a full view of their approach.
