Having never been to Gabriola Island, but realizing it is a rather smallish community, I was not expecting much in the way of fine dining when I recently visited there. Well, the Woodfire proved me very wrong. Our waitress (Sharon) was charming, helpful and accommodating. My wife and I started with an amazing seafood chowder soup (for her) and the Charcuterie plate for me (this could be a meal in itself!). DW ordered the Pizza special of the day (spinach, chicken breast, grape tomatoes, pesto and roasted garlic, mozzeralla and brie). In a word...scrumptious. I had the panko and pine crusted halibut with roasted red pepper butter and sautéed vegetables. We couldn't do dessert and they packed up half the pizza to go (it was wonderful for lunch the next day). 2 pints of amazing beer and an outstanding Caesar cocktail for a $90.00 bill. Would love to return!
