Reviews for Wood Tavern

We walked in with no reservation and were told they were booked out at least 1.5 hours. We put our name in and went a couple doors down for a drink. 20 minutes later the host ducked his head in the pub and told us he had two seats at the bar! Talk about service! The food was great, and the cocktails were awesome. The service was decent, they were very busy but our girl kept up fairly well.

I was told their pastrami sandwich is legendary so I ordered it. It definetly did not dissapoint!...It is loaded with deliciously seasoned pastrami. I could only eat 1 half and saved the 2nd for my husband who led it too. The panacota was not flavorful and the chocolate bread pudding was ok. The cava wine was very good and our waiter was wonderful. We will definetly return!

We've been big fans of the Wood Tavern and Southie. We ordered take out from SouthWood (the takeout menu is a merge of both places. We ordered the BBQ ribs and pan-roasted half-chicken, and topped it off with the wicked chocolate cake. The ribs required 10 minutes in a 400 F oven, but came out perfect: spicy, juicy, and lean. The chicken was tasty, tender, and outstanding. We'll keep supporting our local places, in particular when the food quality is top-notch.
