Romantic & stylish Boystown bistro
We know you probably picked this spot because you heard how great the food is. And we agree: the food is amazing! Wood specializes in seasonal cuisine and exploring unique flavor combinations. However, the cocktails here are to die for! This is a 'come for the food stay for the drinks' kind of place.

      Quality, great drinks, great location
      Usually restaurants in Gayborhoods are just awful, but this one bucks that trend. Not quite "fine dining", but the menu and items are interesting and not your run of the mill. The location can't be beat and it was the perfect start to an evening in Boystown. The server was attentive and friendly. Good bet all around.

      Wood needs to go into the fireplace!
      Last night I had one of the worst restaurant experiences of my life. After ordering our drinks at the beginning of our evening in the outside area, the server spilled a full glass of red wine down my entire back and into my lap. He of course was apologetic and started trying to sop up the wine that was running down my back. A few minutes later he reappeared with the manager who handed me towel soaked in club soda like it was my job to clean up my back. I told them I obviously needed their help. I was figuring out what to do with the front of my stained shorts and crotch area and the manager trying to be humorous suggested that I could have the server wipe it down. (me a middle aged guy and the server being young and quite attractive). I didn't say anything but realized after how insulting and inappropriate that comment was, assuming that I would get my jollies from such a suggestion. The manager really owed both me and the server an apology. The rest of the meal was the usual although I sat in a chilly night with a soaked shirt. I could have left but decided to stay. The server was obviously quite nervous - the manager was not to be seen the rest of our meal. Never came by to ask how we were doing trying to help salvage the evening for us. The food is good but the service has always been inconsistent there. We waited over 20 minutes at the end of the meal for two salads. After asking for the bill TWICE we finally got it and there was no adjustment to the bill nor any offer to comp anything. When we left the manager was smiling like everything is fabulous and I told him: "this was really bad!!" He followed us out the door like he couldn't understand why we were all disgusted. I told him the bill had not been adjusted. He claimed he told the server to deduct some of our bill. Would you believe that? I wouldn't and didn't. He said the next time I came in the wine would be on him (vs. on me this time!) I know accidents happen and I feel badly for the server but this is no way to run a business. And it gives me the sense that I'm not in their desired demographic, i.e. the twenty or thirty somethings. Just so you know....

      Hit or miss
      I have been a few times where I really really liked the place, but more times than not I feel let down. When someone brings you ice cold baked brie and you tell the server, they should actually like they care, not tell me they can throw it in the microwave. I have had a couple servers who had attitude and didn't give a damn about pleasing the customers. The space is cute and has basic bistro bites, but has let me down too many times to return.

      Better than good
      I hate to even say how great Firefly is because it is one of my favorite places to eat. The food is fantastic (the deviled eggs aren't to be missed) and the staff is always very helpful.

      Best Filet in Boystown
      Small restaurant known not only for outstanding Martini's but excellent service and FOOD. I highly recommend the Filet! Took a date here and sealed the deal before the first drink was ordered. Steps from MINIBAR, SIDETRACK, COCKTAIL & ROSCOE'S ..... and did I mention DESSERT!
