My wife and I have eaten here several times of the last few years. They always deliver. For years before, our larger family would eat at the Japanese sushi/hibachi next door. We would always look over and long to eat at the Woodfire grill. I have to admit, it wasn't until Kevin was on TopChef, that we said, why haven't we eaten there yet. Man that first meal, with expectations so high, they delivered, and then some. My favorite was the grilled foie gras. They only serve it when in season. In fact they harvest the whole duck. Which goes with their whole philosophy. Another visit we had the tasting menu, and the wine pairing were just spot on. I would only suggest the tasting menu, to try a wide selection of wines, b/c at the end, it just wasn't' a lot of food, and I'm not a big eater. The food was incredible, but after that amount of money, I need to be full. Not expecting a family size tray of pasta, but... Again, the food was great and the wine was great, so make up your own mind. Nonetheless, the WFG is very attentive, accommodating, unpretentious, and the food just rocks.

My all time favorite spot!!! One of my MOST favorite clubs!!!!!!!!!!! Always there is a long wait-line outside but I never waited no more than 10min..Easy to get in if have connections or such. The atmosphere is very vibrant and exciting!!! Good selections of House/electro on the main stage and hiphop music on the 2nd floor!!! Always crowded and I had much fun whenever I went! Most of the staffs are nice too :-) Very selective door! strict ratio/dress code!! I Definitely would recommend to anyone who want to experience the upscale NYC night life!!!!!!!!

This is my favorite live venue: Best in the City, the State, the Country, the World. The sound is great. It's easy to see the band, no matter where you are. It's easy to get a drink, no matter where you are. (Just bring cash, as they don't take plastic.) For most acts, there is seating only in the banquettes and at the tables in the back and on one side. For some acts (mostly jazz and world music), they put tables on the ballroom floor. My only problem with Bimbo's is that they seemed to have slipped in their booking, especially compared to The Independent. How many times do we need to see Sureal Neil or the Cheeseballs? It's a sad waste of space to have cover bands and novelty acts on stage at such a treasure.
