General Venue Description

WoodWind brings Chef Matt O’Neill’s elegant yet simple dishes — made with honest excellence, playful creativity, and spirited hospitality — to a beautiful and comfortable setting.

The possibilities for customization are endless. Our event space includes 3 main event rooms that can be combined as desired, with full A/V capabilities as needed, a private bar annex with breathtaking lake views, and a rooftop garden patio for those coveted warmer days. The views are almost as unbeatable as the food and the service.


The Annex's custom inlaid mahogany walls, gleaming copper bar tops, and Italian custom coved, stained glass ceiling create a warm and inviting atmosphere for receptions, seated dinners, or even small meetings and presentations. Enjoy a drink at the Annex's full-service speakeasy-style bar while taking in the beautiful lake views!
