I heard about the Woodland for many years before having the opportunity to dine there. It was worth the wait. Great presentation, delicious food.

Great food and nice atmosphere. Seems like farm to table cooking. Very consistent with the quality. Worth a visit.

Went here after touring venues for the day. The service was quick. Their specials were all well made. The beef stew was made fresh in the morning and the beef was very tender. The Mediterranean tuna salad was flavorful and well seasoned. The turkey blt was hearty - served with shoe string style.

Always love coming to Woodland..the truffle fries are delicious and I have had the Filet of Sole Meuniere two times a year for the past 5 years and it is always delicious! Love the bananas foster for dessert too. A favorite of the Hotchkiss students and their families.

We eat here often and are never dissapointed. The food is excellent with lots of variety. The atmosphere is comfortable, busy and a little noisy all at the same time. Just the perfect local spot. Reservations recommended!

We went with another couple and everyone had something different. Not only was the food incredible but the portions were very good size. That was actually a surprise given that dinners averaged $25. A starch and very fresh vegetables were included. We couldn't even fit dessert although I am sure they would have been amazing. You must make reservations on... More

I was in Lakeville for business and went to The Woodland for dinner. The menu is mostly American, but I was surprised to see an extensive offering of sushi. It turned out to be excellent.
