Reviews for IN THE WOOD

** The following review reflects my delivery experience DURING the shelter-in-place order currently in effect. ** Sondheim anyone? That was my first thought (of course), but I think the name is a play on "in the 'hood" only it's Elmwood - so it's In The Wood. Got it? It's yet another restaurant that I had never heard of much less visited. It's a gastropub with a wood-fire pizza oven, so I suspect it was a popular family gathering spot. But as with all my recent full review

This place has always been welcoming and has always had good bar food; but since outside seating is now the only seating available it's especially notable for stellar service and cleanliness. The owner is friendly and makes sure people are safe and comfortable. The pizzas, the burgers, the fries and ceviche are delicious. And if you're cold, there's a heat lamp.

Salmon sandwich is super good, I would go there and buy two or three just for myself. Staff is also really kind. I've been having a not great week, but staff at In the Wood helped make my Friday night better. Recommend for take out, dine in, and hope this place sticks around for a really long time!
