Consistently satisfying dinner experience , I dine here about twice a month in the winter when I visit Gabriola for the weekend. The quality and presentation of the meals , the service and the atmosphere always make for an enjoyable time. The soups are especially good. Although I mostly eat alone here , I have been with 2 to six... More

We spend a lot of time on Gabriola and go to Woodfire several times a year. My wife has had many of the featured dishes and always enjoyed them, but since I had my first Woodfire burger, I never have anything else! I'm not sure what exactly makes it so good, but it is simply as tasty a burger as... More

I have been stopping in at Woodfire every time I am on Gabriola, works out to about 2-3 times a year. I am never disappointed with the excellent food quality, menu variety and superb service. This last trip was a fast one with only coffee and dessert, but well worth the stop. Their chocolate pecan tart and the sticky toffee... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our Saturday night dinner at the Woodfire Restaurant. The waiter was friendly and knowledgable and all orders were prompt. Our pizza was delicious and the large size was "just right" for two. Martini certainly stood out as one of the best I've ever had--of course, using Victoria Gin helped! The dessert cake was on...

On a recent visit to Gabriola Island I had the pleasure of visiting the Woodfire Restaurant. This is a hidden gem run by a husband and wife team who present first-class food in a laid-back setting. As a party of three we were able to sample the menu offerings and judged all items to be excellent in quality and presentation.... More

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.

Food yummy, not extrodinatry, but good. Bit pricey but not ludicrous. friendly and knowledgable staff but few and far between. Some asking around learned that's it a chronic issue ....one has to wonder why don't they?

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
