REDWOODS RESTAURANT 3/9/2008

Having read several negative reviews on the Redwoods Restaurant, I was reluctant to spend an evening there. However, as a favor to a very good friend that wanted to dine there on her birthday, I did not mention my reservations about going and went with my wife and one other couple who was also celebrating a birthday. Our server, Dennis, was attentive and very helpful. Each couple had an internet coupon for $25 off the cost of their dinner and Dennis explained that we should have a card from the discount book with the coupons, but he would talk with the chef and see what he could do. I was suspicious that I would not be able to use my coupon. However, Dennis came back to the table and told us that the coupons would be honored. Pros: food was excellent - service very good to excellent Cons: mix up in drink orders more

You will NOT feel welcome here 12/12/2007

By far the WORST restaurant experience I have ever had. Both times horrible. It's not so much the terrible quality of the food (the only remotely tasty food was the butter that came with the bread), rather the snooty, rude, and haughty attitude of the servers. Now, I can understand such attitude emanating from someone who is awesome at what they do, but the service was so bad that I would have rather spent the time standing in line at the post office or waiting on hold with Verizon to dispute a wrongful late fee and then trying to eek some sympathy out of a teenager sitting in a cubicle and filing her nails in Idaho. The staff at Redwoods makes you feel very unwelcome to be there. You will be made to feel like an a*%$*le for imposing yourself upon them for dinner. Your server will not likely provide water for the table upon your arrival. He will eventually saunter over, take your drink order and then go stand at the bar (in plain view) and arrogantly chat with his co-workers for at least 10 minutes; all the while slowly sipping from his own refreshing libation, eyeing you out of his peripheral vision tauntingly. When he returns another 10 minutes later to take your order (sans beverages of course) your polite inquiry as to the status of your drinks will be met with a look that says ""how DARE you. I'm VERY busy."" He will then return to his perch at the bar to carouse with his compatriots to his content. Nothing comes fast at Redwoods. It is an awkward experience to look around the small, quiet room at the forlorn faces of the three other tables, all frequently glancing towards the bar in the hopes of signaling for assistance. But alas, to no avail. The servers are too involved in their important conversation. They appear as a nest of angry birds, yapping over each other and defensively peaking out on occasion as if worried that a predator might interrupt their carrion feast at any moment. Fine dining my eye. Redwoods reeks of the wretched stench of wannabe regality. Pros: Good butter with the bread Cons: Service, Food, You will not feel welcome, Staff more

Arrogant Service-Overpriced Food (Truly not what you pay for) 12/8/2007

This place has slow, snobby service and the food is always below standard culinary expectation for such prices. Horrible Experience both times we went-especially with the slow, arrogant service. Pros: Absolutely None Cons: Everything more

Outstanding service and food 11/23/2006

This is a consistently good restaurant. I've enjoyed bringing business colleauges here from out of town to give them a taste of downtown St. Pete and what it has to offer. The waitstaff is very attentive and the owner is there frequently ensuring that everyone feels welcome and gets great service. We almost always try the specials, including the wine recommendations which have always been really good. The menu is very interesting. Location is perfect - walking distance to all the downtown attractions. Pros: food, service, location more

HIT & MISS 8/7/2005

Wine chosen from wine list was not available anymore....in my opinion, it should have been removed from list. Server's suggestion for substitute was from completely different region. Also wines were overpriced....four times store prices! Food presentation was great and creative. Desserts were disappointing. Strawberry napoleon consisted of unripe strawberries, stale piece of pastry and whipped cream from a can....certainly not the chantilly cream it was supposed to be. Service was slow and not very friendly. more
