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 has always been our favorite restaurant. We have never had a bad meal there in the decade or more that we have been going there to celebrate birthdays."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "we had a great meal with unbelievable service. could not have had a better meal."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "We had a group of 10. Everyone loved their food. Our wait staff were friendly and helpful."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "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!"

  • "My sincere compliments for the food, service and overall experience at the Barking Frog. We dined here following a bicycle wine tasting tour, coupled with our stay at the Willow's Lodge for our Anniversary. Each course was expertly done to both our likings. From the Lobster Beignets to our Beet Salads and the mail dishes of Duck Breast & Tenderloin and finally Mascarpone Ice Cream and Chocolate dessert (#3 & 4 on the menu) every bite was savored. We truly think that attentive service plays a big part in the experience and Mike was spot on. We were never rushed as to enjoy each bite at our leisure and each course delivery was perfectly timed. Mike's recommendations & demeanor contributed greatly to this wonderful evening."

  • "Had a great lunch in between wine tastings in Woodinville. Service was excellent and the food came out just right. Sat on the patio close to the fountain. Great spot."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "innovative menu, flexible staff, friendly, aim to please"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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
  • "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."
    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."

  • "We are never disappointed. Service was great, food great, sous vide steak was fabulous."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    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 $."

  • "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
  • "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 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!"
