My friend who lives in Bethesda suggested this place for a friendly gathering. It was a Wednesday evening, six of us made their way to Redwood, which features a big dinning hall (yep, that is what it looked like to me) average food in a busy alley on Bethesda Row. There is really nothing special about this place: salads, fish and steaks, large desserts - exactly the same menu you can find anywhere around, yet higher prices, probably reflecting the location. Service was slow, food was dull and uncreative. In the middle of the desert I would have happily stormed into Redwood, however in the DC metro area there are much better choices.

We have been here many times, but none of our experiences have been last night..
it was very busy so we went straight up to the bar.. no one spoke to us AT ALL..
We then asked for menus, the bartenders brought them, we then asked if the had tasted
a certain Rose on the menu, " nope never had it" we then ordered a bottle of wine after
we got their attention again, We then asked to order food, we THEN ASKED for more wine,
we then asked for our check.. get the picture? not once were we spoken TO or asked how our meal
was or if we needed anything and the female bartender was making fun of other guests..

Good food with a slight gourmet twist. Go for their solid happy hour with great deals for both drinks and food. The crowd is so-so, but the food will make up for it.

Redwood has a super outside seating area on a pedestrian-only space, with lots of people walking by in downtown Bethesda. The food is terrific, especially the salads (try the nicoise), and the service is excellent, which is sometimes hard to do with outside seating. I will be back again this summer!
