No complaints about the food or staff, I just wish the menu featured more local ingredients. There's plenty of farmers and hunters around, why not have that? The lack of authenticity is disappointing. Also, and this is not necessarily the restaurant's fault, but I found...More

The food is good but not outstanding. The service is very good. The restaurant is quiet and romantic. It's out of the way and far enough to require a carriage. We've had better meals on the island.

We always go to the Woods when we visit the island. We always request Michael for our waiter. He is great! We had escargot, beet salad, filet and lamb shank. Everything was excellent. The lamb fell off of the bone.
