Great food and location. Family friendly and good kid menu. Wished they were open for lunch but they do open at 4 so good for an early dinner especially if you are catching a ferry.

Food and service is fantastic, but I find it chintzy to be charged $1.50 for aioli or parmesan cheese. The prices are not inexpensive, so it just seems unreasonable to add another $1.50 for what is usually included or optional.

On this little, cozy island, its a surprise to find such an excellent restaurant. The food is consistent, fresh and reasonable. The house wines are good and also reasonable, as are the beer specials. Highly recommend every dish but especially always enjoy the seafood special with seasonal veggies. The pizzas are imaginative, thin crust and delicious. It is open for... More

We were exploring Gabriola Island when we found this cozy restaurant. Our group ranged in age from 8 yr old to 94 yr old, and was tired and hungry after our exploration. Happily we found this marvelous restaurant and settled in after a warm welcome. The evening's special pizza was wonderful (Yogi Trail) and the seafood one was scrumptious too... More

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
