Staryed in hotel on 9th & 10th March on a voucher which included dinner in Elwoods. As soon as we arrived we had lunch in the bar which was very reasonable and very tasty. There was meant to be four of us but 1 person was unable to make it so the hotel said that the person sharing with her could use the second dinner voucher on the 2nd night. The other two of us enjoyed our meal so much on the 1st night, we decided to dine there again with our friend and were not disappointed. Wonderful food and very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend and in fact were given a discount voucher for a return visit which we will definitely use.

Went here when myself and my husband were in Galway last week. The food in the bar was gorgeous...really tasty albeit perhaps over priced a tad. We ate in the restaurant the next night and it was top knotch. The staff were very attentive and service great. Elwoods is part of the Forster hotel and it is a credit to them.

Tried the Elwood bar on bank holiday Monday eve. We needed options as one of us just wanted a light meal and the other wanted something substantial. This worked very well. I had a very good seafood chowder served with bread. My husband had a really nice salmon filler served with roast veg and mash with a hollandaise type sauce, which was found good. While the bar itself is pretty ordinary there were three things which really impressed me, the very smart uniform, the service and finally - amazing- they bottle filtered water , still or sparkling, and serve it in a very . chic bottle. When I checked the bill later there was no charge for a litre of this water but I dont know if this is standard or was an oversight. Overall good food in unpretensious

I can't recommend Elwoods highly enough, 5 of us went there recently and we're all still raving about it. The service was so friendly, atmosphere was great and the food was fab, I had the noodle and hazelnut salad and I'm still craving it - lovely risotto too, my other half had steak and for once wasn't complaining about the portion size!! We didn't sit at the Tapenyaki but defo will next time! The others had the curry and seabass which looked divine. I'm a fussy veggie so great to have so much to choose from on the menu!

One word: Wow! I had eaten in the Forster Court Hotel in the past but last week was the first time I was in the new Elwood's Bar & Grill. I enjoy my food but hate stuffy, pretentious restaurants. This place ticks all the right boxes. Amazing food, great service with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Looking around everyone was treated with the same attentive service. One of our party is lactose intolerant and asked for a Soya Latte. They had run out of soya (which for us was no big deal, most places don't actually have it at all) but five minutes later the waitress arrived over with one, we found out afterwards they had gone out specially to get Soya Milk for her. This is the kind of service you'd expect from a 5 star hotel and for big bucks, but it seems to be part and parcel of how they do things there. I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting good food, great service and reasonable prices.

We attended Elwoods last week as part of a large group of 20. 10 of us were eating at the teppanyaki and 10 at a seperate table. I can only say that we had a great time. The menu available had a good selection and when our checf arrived it was "fun" time. Aside from the visuals, the food was fantasitc, nice and light with high quality, all plates were cleaned. I had the beef which was nice and tender, there was high praise for the salmon and prawn from others. Following the main we moved to a seperate table for desert which was lovely. Our companions had a wide choice available and really enjoyed the experience. The staff were friendly and promt, the ambiance is relaxed and current. Overall I would highly recommend Elwoods considering the alternatives available in Galway which struggle to meet the quality, price and fun of Elwoods.

Restaurant response:
Dear Paul Thank you for all the kind remarks and we look forward to seeing you all at Elwoods sometime soon

We didnt get there late enough to order from the Teppanyaki table so had to order from regular menu. We had Lamb Curry and Duck breast, then strawberry shortcake tower and the Melting Chocolate Fondant (which was not melting!). While the food was beautifully presented, the flavours were bland and unremarkable.The service, while friendly, was poor. Not bad but not good either. E.g. there were side plates for bread, but none was offered, although we saw some passing by. The salt shaker was out of salt, not only on our table but also the one beside us. Wine glasses were not removed when we did not order wine. And we had the waiters thumb print in the raspberry coulis. Based on this evenings meal, I wont be going to Elwood's again, and I'll save myself the teppanyaki experience for Dublin restaurants. I hate to say that as I love hibachi food and want to support local businesses.

Restaurant response:
Dear azzo58 I was very disappointed to read of your recent night out in Elwoods and I can assure you that your experience in no way reflects the high standard of food preparation and service we provide. Since opening in March, we have received the height of praise for both our food and service so I am extremely saddened to read your remarks. I would really like to speak to you about this personally at your earliest convenience and you can contact me at the Forster Court Hotel 091-564111. I would sincerely hope that you would give us another chance to show you that we can provide the quality of food and service you would expect Johnny Bonner
