Excellent food and presentation ( steaks cooked exactly to customers specs ) , excellent service and good decor. However , comes with a corresponding price. One drawback is that they don't have a 'traditional ' reservation system. Your reservation is put in a queue with others with same time request.So expect a 15/20 wait upon arrival.

I met a friend for lunch here during the week. The restaurant, classic American bistro, was packed with a waitlist. Our reservation was for 1 pm but we got seated at around 1:20 or so. Lots of people at the bar eating. Wine kind of flowed and even saw a cocktail or two consumed. At lunch! In Bethesda! Clearly a... More

Woodmont Grill is my go to place for prime rib in Bethesda, available every night and of uniform quality every night. The place is attractive, the booths are comfortable, and the live music is a treat, but not so loud as to impede conversation. The diversity of the clientele is also a welcome change from most D.C. area restaurants.

The Thai Chicken Salad is simply delicious. It hits the spot every time. Woodman is always busy and it is simple to grab a couple of stools at the bar if you want a quick meal. The bar staff are highly experienced and quite nice.

Those who know me understand that I rarely write critical reviews. It's hard to run a restaurant. It's even more challenging when you put your own fortune on the line. But every now and then a cautionary word is in order. Woodmont Grill has the look, feel and taste of of a corporate chain. Nice ambiance, but also lots of... More

While staying in Bethesda we came here for dinner on a Monday night. The place was busy, with a good buzz going on inside. Some live jazz players were positioned kind of awkwardly in the corner where nobody really paid them much attention. The bar staff was quick and made drinks while we waited for our table (despite a reservation,... More

We went there for lunch at about 1145 looking for a table. The place was pretty empty but all tables were reserved. We sat at the bar for lunch. Within about 15 minutes the place filled up. This is not a small place. Judging from reception of some guests they were regulars and staff knew their names. Our service at... More
