A word from Barking Frog
It's difficult to say what is most appealing about the Barking Frog - the food, the wine, the atmosphere. All of the above earned this casual bistro featuring country fresh Northwest cuisine rave reviews. Honors have included "Restaurant of the Year", "Most Innovative Wine List" and "Wine Grand Award" awards, presented by the Washington Wine Commission. Delectable dishes entice guests to linger in the light-filled dining room or to gather around the fireplace. While in the summer, lunch and dinner are served in the courtyard.

Wine tasting in Fireside Cellars - Many wineries are open for public tastings, others are not. However, there is one place where you can relax with friends and fellow guests to taste the finest that Woodinville Wine Country has to offer - Fireside Cellars at Willows Lodge. Join us from 4PM-11PM Sunday-Thursday and 4PM-12AM Friday and Saturday.

Diner Reviews
  • "The Barking Frog never disappoints. The food is food is always superior, always amazing. The local wine list is the best around, and there is not a bad choice on the ever-changing menu. If you want a terrific experience, go to the Barking Frog!"

  • "The food here is legendary, and the wait staff know their menu, and wines to perfection! We were able to share plates with no additional charges, and were encouraged to do so, and informed which items were suitable for sharing. If the staff know in advance that it is a special occasion, they will go out of their way to make it even more special. This is a well run establishment, with excellent quality food, presented beautifully, with wonderful service throughout."

  • "Some items were great but a few weren't. The pork chop sounded great but wasn't appealing when I finally tried it. Waiter didn't volunteer to have it taken off the bill which was surprising for this type of venue. Scallops and mussels were phenomenal. Ambience was very nice until a boisterous party of four was seated near us. Potatoes were the size of marbles and had no taste - I've had better roasted potatoes at inexpensive casual venues. I'll go back but only have the mussels and scallops."

  • "This restaurant came highly recommended to me by a friend. I was very excited to experience it and made the reservation far ahead of time. The service was impeccable. The atmosphere was nice....we were able to dine outside rather than the two seater first offered next to another couple. The food was just so so. We were both disappointed. For the price we expected phenomenal. I probably would not choose it again and would only recommend with full explanation of our experience."

  • "A delicious meal in Woodinville wine country at a reasonable price. The quiet patio with shade umbrellas is perfect for a sunny summer brunch with friends."

  • "Went there for brunch recently on a Sunday late morning. The food was okay not great. Ther service was poor and for no apparent reason. They were not busy and appeared to be staffed properly, and our waitress was pleasant, but service was sporadic at best. Made a reservation and had to wait ten minutes for our table even though the place was half full, had to flag down someone repeatedly for coffee and water refills, the food took forever in arriving once we ordered, and my Mom's coffee cup was dirty and we had to ask it be replaced with a clean cup. The table that was visited by the property general manager seemed to get a lot of attention. The rest of us not so much. Nice location but this was not worth the hype."

  • "Delicious. Great atmosphere, phenomenal service. Waitress was playful, entertaining, and helpful leading us through the menu. The menu had multiple options for foodies and for those with limited diet -- all was delicious. Little pricey, but well worth it for a special occasion."

  • "We have eaten here a couple of times and while the service is always a little slow thistime it was horrendous. The waitress kept passing our table and igoring us. The manager finally came over w/bread and water. The waitress then stopped by and said she would be with us in a minute but didnt for the next 15 until the manager came by again to see if we wanted more bread! We said we'd wanted to order. 25 min later we asked him where the food was it was another 10 min for the entre salads but the lamb burgers for the others didn't show up for 15 min after that!Tthe manager said he would comp us. The manager said a large party came in late,There was a favorite place when but it will be a long time before we go here again,"

  • "We had a wonderful meal on Friday, August 8th with out of town guests. They were impressed by the wine list and the extensive knowledge of our server."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Mussels were good. Salad was a salad. Wines were so-so. Steak was underdone and over sauced. Sugary goo. Waited 20 minutes for the check which was unacceptable. Had I not been out with my wife for our anniversary the tip would have reflected this."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Really great food and an outstanding wine list. The restaurant has a very good reputation and they performed up to that standard."

  • "We were disappointed, the salmon dinner was strong/ very fishy."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "We stayed at the hotel, and so we had our children with us. For dinner it is not kid friendly. The waitress Kristen was actually rude. She did not offer us a complimentary dish like the couple without children. She then acted shocked to find out we were staying at the hotel. Overall left me feeling like we should have gone elsewhere."

  • "If you love Napa Valley and CA style restaurants featuring fresh food and cool dining room, then Barking Frog is for you. Large menu features items from cheese tasting flights to wine tasting flights. Chicken Marsala and meatloaf specialties. Wine bar features many WA wines and Monday's many are half priced. No liquor. Located in strip center with wine tasting rooms so start early with them and end up here for dinner."

  • "We went to the Barking Frog and were pleased to be seated outside. We were served an amuse bouche which was a nice touch, but the overall experience left us flat. The service was slow and had several issues: It took a while for us to get bread at the table, this was followed by slow delivery of our drinks. After ordering our meal and waiting a while for it to be delivered the wrong dish was served to my wife. We decided to stick around for dessert and were served a dish with a hair in it. We were happy the manager stopped by to personally apologize but his method of resolving the issue was to simply give his business card and offer when we come in next time to ask him for a free appetizer. We do not expect there will be a next time."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Not really impressed. The food was good, but not great. I ordered the crab benedict, and it is something I could have gotten at Denny's. The service was "meh". We brought our daughter, and the server seemed put out when she had to get other things....like ranch sauce, or not nut bread, and it was rather slow. Probably would have been a good pace for romantic dining in the evening, but not so much with a kid for brunch."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "When we first arrived in the morning to use the outdoor dining, we told the waitress we would like that table which has an umbrella, but she said no, to sit at this one which has no umbrella and in direct sun, as it needs to be cleared off and cleaned off from the previous people that had just left after eating. This tells us she don't want to clear the table off for us. We had very poor service from her, and when she came by once to ask how the food is, we told her the food that consist of eggs, ham and potatoes were way too dry and overcooked (The Mt. Rainer Breakfast). She said oh and just left and did not come back until bringing the receipt to be paid. We ate the best dinner there the night before and had the best service by Michael."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "For the price, I expected the food to be better. It was good, but not great. My husband's $50 steak definitely was not worth that price...and, it came overcooked. My fish was very good."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "The three of us college friends have been getting together for lunch for over 40 years at various places...this was one of the best of the best! We were warmly welcomed and the meals that our server recommended were AMAZING!!! We each enjoyed the wonderfully refreshing chilled cucumber soup & the fish cheviche tacos...OH, MY! And the desserts were simply to die for...with imaginative blends of ingredients that made for an absolutely unique and beautiful ending to our time there. Loved the whole experience!!!"

  • "One of the best corned beef hash entrees ever. (I order it whenever it's on the menu anywhere.) Fantastic, homemade, and mine was served with two perfectly cooked over-medium eggs. The bloody marys were good. The product does not justify the price; I've had far better elsewhere and never paid what Barking Frog charges. My fiance ordered the huckleberry pancakes, which were very good but also overpriced. Additionally, while the portion of the corned beef served was perfect, the pancake order was enough to feed three adults (perhaps to justify the price?). We sat outside in the shade. Gorgeous. Service was prompt and polite. Bottom line, it's an excellent brunch, and especially if you like corned beef hash, but not at a value."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Overall I enjoyed our lunch/brunch but the service was very slow, we did not get our bread until after we asked what others were being served after our main courses arrived. Also, I was not expecting a brunch only menu at 1pm on a Saturday and don't recall seeing it posted on their website that it was brunch time when we showed up. I was looking forward to the regular lunch menu not the brunch menu with eggs at 1pm. It was also very loud in the restaurant and hard to talk and listen at the table."

  • "My wife and I have been going to the Barking Frog for our anniversary for many years and we have never been disappointed. I look forward to having their Grand Marnier prawn appetizer and often comment that I should just order two of them and treat it as my entree; however, you also cannot pass up their scallops! The wine selection is great and the service is excellent. The ambiance is very relaxed but you can feel comfortable in casual or formal attire. We will definitely continue to recommend this restaurant to everyone and will be returning again soon for at least a glass of wine and an appetizer!"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "We were hoping for a lot more. The service was good in the sense that they were friendly and attentive but they forgot one of the dishes we ordered. We both had fish (different kinds) and both preparations were very over cooked and dry. We expected more and were underwhelmed."

  • "Went to barking frog for breakfast. Had reservations but were told no room outside. Then we were put at a table for 6 even though there were only 6 of us and even though there was a table for 4 close by. Our friends were vegan and menu was not conducive to vegan or vegetarian. Waitress seemed put out by having to adjust orders to be vegan and vegetarian even though it mainly just required leaving some ingredients out. Took a LONG time to get order. Price $74.00 for 4 people (no alcohol). Unhappy customer"

  • "We came here for our sixth year wedding anniversary. Our waitress was awful rushed us through the entire dinner and didn't explain anything on the menu. I tried to ask her several questions about the entrees but she did not describe the dishes and was not helpful.my husband had the beef tenderloin and loved it. I had the halibut the meat was delicious but was served on top of a broth that was not good and took away from the fish. We had the shrimp appetizer and that was delicious. Basically I think it is a good restaurant we were just unlucky to have a bad waitress. With drinks an appetizer, salad and entrees we were in and out in and hour 15 minutes and that was after I pushed her away twice saying we were not ready to order."

  • "Stayed at Willows Lodge and had late dinner at Barking Frog. Fun restaurant and nice ambiance. As you would expect they have a large wine list with many Washington state wines. Service was very good. Food menu was a little light on variety/choices and main courses were not that interesting. Pork chop was very average. Brunch the next morning was better."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Sorry, but this restaurant is way over rated. Waited at least 10 minutes for our waiter to acknowledge us after we first sat down, and the place was barely busy. Somewhat limited menu. Tried 4 or 5 different items, none of which I would recommend. Don't waste your money on the $50 steak - totally not worth it. You would expect a lot more for these prices. No, definitely not going back..."

  • "Went for a birthday. Sat for awhile before anyone came to out table. Had to ask for bread like 5x. Server was nice but barely came around. Took a long time. Food was good, but not for the prices. Not impressed like I thought we would be based on others reviews."

  • "Pleasant resturaunt with a significant wine list. They has some interesting dishes, including a wonderful soft shell crab and pork belly on the night we went. The steak dishes were outstanding. The outdoor ambience and service were adequate, but lacking in some small touches."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "The fish and chips for lunch is tuna. Without thinking, when asked, I requested it be cooked medium-well. Tuna, ofcourse, is meant to be served rare or medium rare. It was way too dry. Aside from this snafu on my part, the rest of the lunch was perfect. We especially liked the curried-mussel and kalamensi dessert."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Good food. Restaurant was loud even though it wasn't full. Outside seating was packed. The table for two inside was too long and with ambient noise level it was hard to have an intimate conversation. The server was friendly but not real attentive. They did get slammed and it looks like they may have been understaffed."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "We chose Barking Frog to celebrate my father's 85th birthday. As with many people that age, my mother and father both suffer from hearing loss that makes it particularly difficult for them to follow a conversation with heavy background noise. Recognizing this, we called ahead to request outdoor seating, so avoid some of the background noise. For whatever reason, the person taking the call seemed incapable of understanding the problem. Just before we arrived, the last outside table had been given away, and we wound up seated at a VERY noisy table next to the kitchen. This ruined what otherwise would have been a very pleasant evening. For the prices they charge, Barking Frog should have provided much better service."

  • "Food featured interesting, even adventurous combinations but was bland and not well executed, especially for the price. Service was hot and cold, as if the wait staff needed more training. Have eaten here in the past and was impressed. Not this time. Restaurant seems to be relying on its beautiful location and its wine list and no longer applying much rigor to its main mission."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "This is a new fave for my husband and I. Too bad it is almost 3 hours away from "home" but well worth the trip. We'll sure be doing more visits back here - for the prawns are addictive. Loved dining outdoors seated next to the "pond" with the glass first nations fish. And grapes on a vine hanging overhead! So romantic. And after a day of wine tasting we didnt' think we could try another, but their wine list was too tempting and we both chose a glass that was best of the day. And thanks to the staff for my birthday card. A special touch. As I said, we'll be back!"
