If we’re talking about a place where we can get some of the most diverse menu selections Atlanta has to offer, then we’re talking about The Woodall. In the thriving, up and coming westside neighborhood of Atlanta, the restaurant serves up contemporary takes on classic choices from seafood to steakhouse cuts, small plates and more.
There’s always a thrill when it comes to trying out a restaurant for the first time. Will the food be good? How about the service? And the atmosphere? All questions that pop into my mind. Thankfully, The Woodall did not only meet my expectations but exceed them!
There are a number of items that also get a strong recommendation from me, including the Tataki N.Y. strip carpaccio and the ahi tuna and watermelon poke that includes white ponzu, rhubarb granita and puffed wild rice. There was no better way to top things off than with the Westholme wagyu tri tip. How the chef managed to get the taste just right with the perfect blend of tender and juicy still blows my mind to this day.
Head to the bar
Soon after, I made my way to the bar to get a taste of the bar menu. My bartender, Jasmine, served up great customer service along with tasty oysters and creole crab fried rice. While I was tempted to take my leftovers and head out, how could I leave without trying the white chocolate panna cotta? The Woodall got the recipe right when they created the matcha, kiwi and crispy yogurt delight.
Visit for happy hour
Don’t miss out on The Woodall’s happy hour either; you can check out all their new menu items weekdays from 4 to 6 p.m.
Don’t forget about brunch
Brunch is always a good idea and at The Woodall! You can enjoy classics like biscuits and gravy or steak and eggs, or you can switch things up with their jumbo lump crab cake benedict or pulled pork hash. Take note though, those are just a few of the delectable dishes that their brunch has to offer.
If you’re looking for a place to catch up on the latest gossip with friends or simply enjoy delicious dishes with family, The Woodall is your go-to spot.
