    Creekwood is our new weekly extended family dining experience. Eric our waiter is fabulous. In fact, the entire staff are rock stars. Never rushed so we can enjoy our delicious food. Brussel sprouts, mushroom/sausage pizza and fettuccine are some of our favorites. The short ribs, rib eye and cod are also family favorites. We are happy to support this local spot and hope they will be around well into the future.

    We had a great time. We had both salads and Brussel sprouts for starters. Both couples had lamb chops - delicious! The only disappointment was dessert. There was no chocolate cake and they serve the best! We had carrot cake that was too dry and panna cotta.

    Very nice little place! We a late lunch here yesterday. They offer an interesting variety of food on their brunch menu. We ordered Cameroni pasta and a side of crispy brussels sprouts. Both were delicious. There were plenty of brussels sprouts to share, and we took some home. The pasta was cooked perfectly, and the sausage-tomato sauce was delicious. I was pleased that they gave us ice water, not the carafe of room-temperature water that is increasingly common in restaurants. They have tables and booths indoors. The outdoor seating is at tables on the sidewalk, slightly separated from the street. They have heat lamps.

    I would definitely return here. I'm happy this restaurant is so well reviewed and doing well in this quiet transit corridor in a residential area. The server was excellent. Our orders were taken promptly and with friendliness, and the food came quickly. The staff inside were also friendly when we popped in after our meal. The heated space for outdoor seating was comfortable on a cool afternoon. My companion's fettuccine ragu looked delicious and she ate every bit. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in the fried chicken sandwich--the ratio of thick breading to a limited amount of chicken was too high for me, and I also wished it had been white meat, given the fried preparation. The accompaniments were tasty.

    The restaurant wasn't quite ready for us when we arrived. Floors were still be swept. Team members were sitting at the bar counter. Admittedly we were the first table at opening - we had a reservation. I am an old school restaurant person; arrival is the first impression for guests. It says we're ready to welcome you and pleased you chose us. Not a big deal but it is the details that make the difference. We ordered an assortment of items for the table. Overall the food was good, not great. The pasta and pizza dishes were quite flavourful. My recommendation is to stick with those. The appetizers were good too. The pork and lamb entrees were meh. We weren't asked for temperatures on the dishes. The pork arrived medium well. The lamb was medium. The spätzle and veg with the pork seemed a bit sparse and were drowned by the jus. The risotto with the lamb was lacking richness and the rice was overcooked. Either the starch wasn't developed into the creamy texture you typically find in risotto or it was finished with little to no butter/Parma cheese. The server was attentive and kind. Our table was catching up and he allowed us time to converse. We never felt rushed. There was an odd moment when we were presented with dessert menus. No 86 dessert items were mentioned. However, when we went to order, we were then told that 3 of the 6 items were't available. He said they were still being made. He later returned to say the cookies were ready. We ordered them and one other item. The cookies arrived cold - not freshly baked as it was implied. Perhaps it was a miscommunication or misunderstanding. Who knows. Regardless warming 2 x $3 cookies for a $6 dessert would be appreciated. Nice spot but I think we'll try somewhere else before returning.

    We went to Creekwood for Sunday brunch. Service was great, ambience very nice. Our table was ready when we arrived. One in our party seemed to have her order forgotten. Four of us received our food simultaneously, while the last plate was at least five minutes delayed. Her entree was French toast, which was undercooked and soggy. This was a disappointment. Otherwise everyone enjoyed their food. For the rest the overall consensus was the food was very good, but not great. Some felt that the food in general could have used a little more seasoning. But we enjoyed the experience overall, and the prices were quite reasonable for this day and age.

    We celebrated my mom's 83rd birthday at this wonderful restaurant and everyone enjoyed the food, service, and ambiance. It is a wonderfully unassuming and comfortable restaurant with great service, delicious pizza and wine, and yummy desserts. Everyone, from my 7 yo nephew to my 83 yo mom, had a wonderful time.

    We had an excellent experience at Creekwood. We shared four small plates and a pizza. The burrata and tomatoes was outstanding, the little gems (minus the potatoes by request) was tasty and perfectly dressed, the roasted Brussels sprouts were delectable and the meatballs were hearty and savory and served with thick cut garlic toast. Our pizza was cooked perfectly and the portions were ample. We took food home. There were many tempting dessert options and I opted for an affogato, which was excellent. Our only complaint is that it is noisy, but a small price to pay for such an outstanding meal and a good value for the high quality. Easy parking too!

    This charming restaurant was picked by our 2 couple group for a Friday evening out. We sat indoors at a roomy booth but they also have outdoor seating. Our masked servers were efficient, professional & friendly. Our food was delicious. We enjoyed the beet salad which was bright & fresh along with the crispy brussel sprouts appetizer. I dug into a bambino sized meatball calzone that was springy & airy. Shareable, it was served with a marinara dipping sauce & was quite satisfying. My dining partners enjoyed a bowl of pasta & a pizza. It was a great place to catch up w our friends, enjoy a bottle of wine. We arrived around 6pm with a few diners but it started to bustle with people around 7pm, was a little loud, but we could still hear one another. We'll be back, a lovely restaurant with yummy food where you can enjoy reconnecting with those you've missed.

    If you want to experience what food heaven might be like, order the flourless chocolate cake when you eat here. We have had it for dessert consistently, which puts us in a bliss state after a wonderful dinner, but just recently we started thinking about it as an appetizer with red wine! Life is short. Start with dessert first. We're going to try that idea next time. And of course, the starters and mains here are delicious. This time around we had the brussels sprouts, cleverly roasted with pistachio, praline and pepper, along with our fave meatballs and little gems salad for starters. And then, the black cod for dinner. A piece of art, delicious to eat.

    This was our first time at Creekwood, and we were all happy to have tried it out. The waiter gave us some good suggestions, but skipped the pasta, and that was our favorite dish. The beet salad was excellent, as were the meatballs. The pizza and the heirloom tomato salad were okay. The chocolate dessert was extra special. I will go again for the pasta, meatballs, and chocolate dessert.

    We really enjoyed Creekwood. The ambience is modern yet warm and inviting. We tried several dishes and they were all well executed. I was also pleased with the clever flavor combinations in both salads that we tried, which were very different and both interesting. Furthermore, that attention to detail and flavor/texture combinations went into the mains, a course where sometimes it's easy to get risk-averse and less interesting dishes. Well done.

    We knew about this place for months, but We knew about this place for months and finally went when some friends of our mentioned they'd eaten there twice and loved it. We went with them and LOVED IT. Simply and beautifully designed, it is a restaurant that is casually elegant, with great ambience, and fantastic food and service. One of the owners and chefs, Greg, came to our table several times to see how we were enjoying the food, and to ask us if we wanted to taste any of their wines, besides the bottle we'd ordered. The tasting option Creekwood has for the wonderful wines on its list is irresistible, and so unusual and happy-making. We felt like we were in someone's home, who wanted us to taste a few of their good wines. The food is gorgeously prepared and delicious. And you've never had a salad like the little gems salad here. Beautifully plated, generous, and crispy fresh. GO!

    A great dinner last night! The pizza is so good - crispy and perfectly balanced, my husband had the lamb on a bed of risotto which he thought was terrific. And have a scoop of ice cream - the owners buy it locally and it was really yummy! Great ambience, very friendly owners and staff, just a great vibe here.
