The Woodfire Burger is the best burger I have ever had. Super nice staff and great ambiance. Pizzas are also great 👍🏻 Is definitely worth a visit!

Excellent menu. Great seafood. Staff were attentive, polite and made for a delightful evening. We always make space for dessert (had the lemon tart).

What a lovely night out! A special menu was created for our New Years Eve. I started with the goat cheese soufflé with roasted beets. Gary had the smoked scallop chowder and said it was “ to die for”. For the main I had grilled...mahi-mahi over butternut squash and crab ravioli. Absolutely delish. Gary had the cannon of beef over roasted veg. He enjoyed it thoroughly. I could tell because the plate was shiny clean when he finished. For dessert he has the Assiette of Desserts which included white chocolate panna cotta, milk chocolate tart and 2 dark chocolate truffles. In particular he loved the panna cotta. I had my old favourite burnt lemon tart. We were treated well with another great meal. Thank you so much Sharon and Chris for all of your continued hard work.More

We went for a birthday dinner and we were not disappointed... I had the salmon and prawns with oven roasted veg and it was nicely prepared and perfectly seasoned. the salmon portion could have been a bit bigger IMHO...this is the west coast after all....My daughter had the berger and the table shared a pork belly on greens. All, was nicely prepared, delivered with great service which mad for a memorable evening.More

OMG, we decided to order pizza take out from here while camping at Descanso Bay, and it was so good!! The De courcy was so delicious, and the pepperdews were a great addition. Can't wait to come back and get pizza from here again!

Every time we go to Gabriola we get Woodfire pizza, it is an absolute staple of Gabriola and it is very very yummy. Last time I got the usual pizza that I do, the Decourcy, and it was delicious as usual. The light of my...life, a beautiful bright delicious light. I ended up eating most of the pizza but left the rest to have as an easy breakfast while we waited in the ferry line. But then disaster struck when I realized I left my beautiful pizza at home. I was, and as I write this still am, absolutely devastated. In vain I racked my brain trying to think of some way to get my delicious pizza back, and was forced to come to the realization that I would not get to eat my pizza, that it would need to be left to the wolves, to disappear to the sands of time, gone but not forgotten. When the line started moving towards the ferry I found myself hoping that maybe we would miss it so I could get my pizza back. As we neared the front my hope grew as the ferry became more and more full. All I could think was maybe maybe maybe we’ll miss this ferry and I could get my pizza. When the ferry worker motioned for us to stop I felt the way Canada did watching Sidney Crosby before he scored the goal in the 2010 Olympic Games. Maybe I’d get my pizza, maybe I’d get my pizza. But instead of unadulterated joy I felt crushing defeat when the ferry worker motioned for us to continue. As we drove down the ramp I could feel my beautiful, delicious, yummy pizza getting definitively further and further away. In all my years of going to Gabriola I don’t think I have felt that disappointed about not missing the ferry, but Woodfire is actually that good.More

Great service and atmosphere. The food was pretty good but extremely pricey. My friend got a Cesar salad with an added chicken breast. The salad itself was $14 and the chicken breast was also $14 making it more than the chicken dinner on the menu....The salad was small but good. 100% wood recommend the flatbreads, they are so delicious! Pizza was great but got truffle fries as a side and the mixture of spices and the truffle oil was definitely not a great flavour. Pesto aioli 10/10More

Had a terrific dinner here, I had the braised beef ravioli which was tasty and cooked just right, we also tried the grilled chicken fettuccine which was delicious. For dessert we shared the dark chocolate espresso mousse cake, and the warm sticky toffee pudding both...were excellent although I would lean toward the pudding myself. Overall we really enjoyed our experience at this fine restaurant, service was exemplary, we wouldn't hesitate to visit again.More

Good takeout pizza, very tasty. We decided to go takeout as the outdoor patio looked a little crowded and none of the staff were wearing masks. Looked like a nice place though otherwise.
