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.

  • "We traveled from Poulsbo, Washington to celebrate our 24th anniversary by having lunch at the Barking Frog. The restaurant had been highly recommended to us by friends. After strolling the grounds and enjoying the beautiful raised bed vegetable garden, we had a fabulous lunch including dessert. The food and experience were memorable. We are so glad our friends knew of this great destination in wine country. To complete the day, we took a long walk along the Samammish River Trail which one of the staff recommended to us and was very nearby. All in all, a great experience."

  • "Barking Frog is one of the best redstaurants in the Woodinville (suburban Seattle) area. The food is creative, varied, served well and absolutely fabulous. The service level is impeccable. The wine list is dominated by fabulous Washington wines. We try to eat there once a month."

  • "My first time & food was great, but my only fault was i did not leave a big enough tip as the total meal for two was $225.00 & that was way over my budget. Was a special treat for me so my apologies to the server for not leaving more :))"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "My sister and I wanted to try Barking Frog while in the Woodinville area, so made lunch reservations. What a find! We selected the Roasted Organic Chicken Salad and the Ninety Farms Beef Burger. The salad was fresh and tasty and the burger was perfection - cooked just right, juicy and delicious. Service is outstanding. We were seated outside near the fountain and thoroughly enjoyed the experience."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Barking Frog is a great spot for an upscale lunch. The prices are no more than double what I pay for lunch at very run-of-the-mill restaurants, but the food is some of the best I've had anywhere. That makes Barking Frog a fantastic value, in my opinion. The decor is modern and comfortable, the patio is great on a summer day, and the food and service are top notch."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Great good, good service! I had the crab benedict with a mimosa and my friend had a breakfast burrito. We were seated promptly and assorted breads with water right away. The server was very busy, but one of her partners took our drink order right away. Restaurant was full and therefore loud. I did not realize how small it was in size, but was able to hold a conversation. Food was good, arrived in a moderate time. Service was attentive. Enjoyable experience... better when some of the large parties left. Good for a celebratory dinning experience!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Fortunately, we were in no hurry to eat, as it took over an hour for us to be seated despite having reservations. The manager was genuinely apologetic for the situation and comped us a couple of horderves. The horderves were certainly the highlight of our meal. Our entrees on the other hand, were a big disappointment. The menu is surprisingly sparse, and my wife ordered duck, in the absence of any sort of chicken selection. The duck was tough, and virtually uneatable. My scallop dish was okay, however, the accompanying couscous medley was far too complex and overpowering. With so many excellent restaurant choices in the world, it’s safe to say, we will not be returning to the Barking Frog."

  • "I was taking friends from out-to-town to some Woodinville wineries. We ended a lovely day with an outstanding dinner at The Barking Frog. The food was really fabulous, the vibe was very Pac Northwest, great food without any pretention."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 16th Wedding Anniversary here and had a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was inviting and our server Kristen was very attentive. We will retun again. The food was exceptional as well as the presentation. The only down side was the noice level."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "My wife, one of her friends and I enjoyed a birthday dinner at the Barking Frog. We've been there a handful of times over the years and always enjoyed it. And true to form, the food was fantastic - we share the prawn appetizer - always a favorite, as well as the duck special (my favorite), the salmon and the ahi tuna. All three had unique preparations with the main course that enhanced the meal itself. The only problem this evening was the noise level in the restaurant. I hadn't noticed it being a problem before but this night, we felt we were almost yelling at each other to keep the conversation going....with the summer season approach and the patio doors opening, I feel certain this issue will go away."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We decided to try The Barking Frog for our anniversary. Everything we had was nothing short of amazing. We shared the prawns which were delicious!! And I got the halibut which was the best halibut I've ever had. Seriously so good. My husband had the scallops which he said were fantastic. We sat outside in a beautiful night. Overall a great experience. They even have us an anniversary card with all their signatures on it. So nice. Will definitely go back."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The experience was very disappointing from entering the restaurant to the moment we left. The ambience is nothing special- average at best. The tables are tiny and very close to each other with no table cloth. We waited a long time for a waiter to come. The mussels appetizer was good and the best of all the meals we ordered. Enough to share for 2. I ordered side of french fries that were forgotten, they came late and taken off the check, but still not what you expect from an expensive restaurant. The service was a bare minimum. I order scallops for $32 and literary got 3 scallops. The rabbit my husband ordered was very bland. Do not waist your money! No atmosphere, bad service, not a romantic and the food may be good but not worth the $."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I was super excited to eat brunch here for a girls day out. I made a reservation, but still had to wait 15 minutes to be seated and was also asked a couple times if we were waiting for a table. I was confused since I had just spoken to her and it wasn't even busy. Our server was nice, the food pretty good, but we were there 2.5 hours from start to finish just because everything took forever. It was a beautiful day out and not in any big hurry, but there about an hour too long since we had wineries to visit! So, I would maybe dine there again if I really didn't care how long it took, but not anytime soon."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We had been looking forward to going to the Barking Frog for over two months for lunch and knew we wanted to have the Grand Marnier prawns. We were a little concerned that we had built them up too much - not so! They were excellent!! Food was great! Service was wonderful!! Best lunch!!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Amazing place, scenery, and food, Service was outstanding, food was perfect."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The Barking Frog did an outstanding job recognizing our 25th anniversary! We have gone here many times and this was the best all around experience we have had. We haad the pork chop and halibut. Both were done perfectly! As always, the Grand Marnier shrimp appetizer was incredible!!! Lastly, we had a special chocolate dessert that finished off our meal so well! Service as always was outstanding. I had called to make special arrangements for our anniversary and we were surprised to see rose pedals at our table with a nice note from the staff. Strongly recommend for a special evening! Thank you again to the staff!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "This was my 1st time at The Barking Frog we will definitely back. Everything the waitress, food, staff, Atmosphere was in my book worth the drive from Gig Harbor. Not only was our experience awesome the waitress overheard me tell my husband how much I loved the bread and sundried tomato w/ capers spread and she had a plate sent to our room at the Willows Lodge next door with a card telling it was her treat after our concert we had gone to."

  • "The resort the restaurant is a part of is beautiful, the food was great and the service very good. The only downside was the noise level and distance between the tables, which was a bit distracting for people like us looking for a romantic dinner."

  • "Dinner last Friday, party of 4. Everyone was thrilled and happy - except me. That was because 1) I never got the fries I ordered (they took it off of the bill) but more importantly 2) the pork chop I got was pretty much inedible. You would think for $33 they would do a better job of selecting their meats. This chop was shot through with gristle front to back and side to side. There was really no way to cut out any parts that I could eat."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "It was my first time and I'll definitely go back there. The service was good, the food incredible, the menu very flexible: I built my own combination and that's what caught my liking at the end. The only if is that my table wasn't ready when I got there even with a 24h in advance reservation."

  • "The food was excellent would love to come back! I really enjoyed the steak with the egg ravioli. The wine list was excellent as well."

  • "Very nice ambiance. We shared several items and our waiter was very goid to meet our request. We had orange shrimp appetizer which was outstanding. Ceasar salad was one if the best I have had and egg yolk ravioli was totally unexpected pleasant surprise. Never had it before."

  • "Amazing food. Wonderful service. Our server Brian was amazing and very very helpful. Restaurant can be a bit noisy, so if one is looking for a real quiet romantic place, this wouldn't be the right joint, but if not then an awesome place to have dinner at."

  • "Farm fresh food that's always a plus. My rabbit dish was ok. Salmon is very good. Cesar salad tasty. Didn't try any wines, but martinis were ok. Didn't have dessert either so can't comment."

  • "We got out bellies full of delectable goodness. The portions were filling for rich, well prepared courses and we left ready for a nap. I wanted to treat my husband for his birthday and he thoroughly enjoyed everything from the setting, to the appetizers to the main course and even dessert...which is something we don't normally indulge. Food was well prepare, beautifully presented and best of all delicious. We had a little stall in between our appetizers and salad but we opted to use that time to soak in the atmosphere and each others company. We both agreed we would go again but only on special occasions as you will spend more than normal, but the Barking Frog's cuisine is anything but normal"

  • "This was my first visit to the Barking Frog. We sat outside on their beautiful patio. The only reason I gave the service 3 stars was because our server seemed to forget about our drinks and the service seemed a little slow. We ended up having to ask where our deinks were. I had the beet salad which was very good. A little small on the small side, certainly not enough to share between 2 people. For dinner, I had the Halibut. One of the best preparations I have ever had. The sear on the top was amazing. Highly recommend you order this! We will definitely be back!"
