the cioppino is delicious, add focaccia for dipping into the broth (its a must, their broth is so good), and i love that they Still have romaine ceasar salad option with home made dressing.

We visit Woodfire on every trip to our cabin on Gabriola. The pizzas are, quite simply, the best - the chef is always coming up with new combinations - and the trick is to order enough so you have some leftovers. Salads are also good,...More

Thank you for your lovely review Darlene. Just so you know the focaccia bread and balsamic are still available on our menu. We do not bring it out complimentary anymore as we ended up throwing more away and it was so wasteful. See you soon....More

This place is owner run and managed and it shows. The service was excellent, food was great and menu choices yummy - especially vegetarian skinny fries with sweet chilli sauce and roasted red peppers and mushrooms

Gabriola Island, laidback, quiet, rural, we didn't expect the high quality of restaurants we found there! Fireside had the most comfortable, cozy and private atmosphere. The food was excellent. We're from Seattle area and the food, service and atmosphere is what you would expect to...More

Whatever the occasion, at Woodfire you will be warmly welcomed. A wide variety of foods, nicely presented, a good selection of wines, excellent 'specials' and great service. Well priced and well worth a visit - or more than one! A great taste experience!

Ended our amazing day trip with a great meal, with great service at this west coast, clean restaurant. We loved the mussels and clams in a white wine cream sauce, the speciality pizza and finished the evening with the special chocolate pudding (yum!) and the...More

Great food and location. Family friendly and good kid menu. Wished they were open for lunch but they do open at 4 so good for an early dinner especially if you are catching a ferry.

Food and service is fantastic, but I find it chintzy to be charged $1.50 for aioli or parmesan cheese. The prices are not inexpensive, so it just seems unreasonable to add another $1.50 for what is usually included or optional.
