We were staying at the Freestone Inn in Mazama and their restaurant was closed on Mondays so we ventured out to look for a good meal. We were very pleased with this restaurant. Creative menu and fresh food seemed to be locally sourced. Appetizers were yummy....burrata cheese and figs were great as was the pork belly. Entrees were the lamb shank (very good ) and the special fish for the evening which was sockeye salmon which was good (but a little overcooked). We had a good meal and enjoyable evening. Good wine list.

I have been to Arrowleaf several times and have never been disappointed. Saturday evening was no exception. The grilled calamari with Thai spices is the best calamari I have had anywhere (and that includes at dozens of restaurants in Asia). The main course of linguini with sautéed vegetables was heavenly. Dinner was topped off with a very nice L'Ecole Grenache Rosé wine.

Arrowleaf brings to the Methow Valley very fine quality cuisine where one would normally not expect to find it. For fine dining in the Methow no other venue comes close to Arrowleaf in quality at a reasonable price.

Food was very good to excellent; the duck breast that I had was fantastic and the starters (including burrata salad and bread) were also outstanding. Service was professional but friendly, and very efficient. Only downside was that a large and very noisy party of 8 was seated next to us, and their loudness and occasional shouting really made our meal much less enjoyable. I think the restaurant should try harder to either isolate the larger groups, or figure out a way to diplomatically ask the patrons if they could be a bit less rambunctious. I would still recommend the restaurant, but the acoustics are such that if you get seated next to a group of six or more, try to request to be moved. I think my duck breast -- which was delicious -- would have been even more enjoyable if not for the deafening noise our neighbors created.

Loved my 3rd visit. Duck breast for him and fresh baked trout for me, plus caesar salad app and desserts. Only quibble with ambience is chairs are not padded. And it’s pricey: $30 entrees, but worth it.

The physical setting and staff were wonderful, warm and professional. The food portions were generous, ample and well presented. Some of the disappointment came from expectations established by very positive Trip Advisor & Yelp reviews. The calamari was very good presented with a nicely breaded, tangy batter with sliced hot peppers and chili flakes. The House salad had very fresh and diverse greens...the vinaigrette however was a runny vinegar and oil combo with little taste or flavor which detracted. The linguini (a pasta primavera) was a very large portion drenched in a tasteless and runny homemade pesto. The vegetables were negligble and lacked flavor. The chicken was well prepared and satisfactory. The meals are not a good value and highly priced ($26/pasta...every other entree cost more) even for a resort area. There is aspiration to be the go to for area fine dining and the bones of this exist. Preparations and/or the chef have a long way to go to get there.

It was a return visit from a year ago.....quite busy but good meal. My husband enjoyed his steak frites, I found the menu more challenging as I have food sensitivities...enjoyed fish cakes without the sauce. We shared a Caesar Salad which was good and fresh. Nice choice of wines. Sweets were good but nothing special.

We always enjoy our dinners at the Arrowleaf Bistro. We usually take out-of-town guests there, and they are always surprised to find such elegant and creative dining in an area where most of the restaurants are rustic (burgers and pizza). The menu makes extensive use of local ingredients and the items are always interesting and well-prepared. The bistro has a reasonable wine list, and the restaurant atmosphere is attractive and inviting.

our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu. She knew the beer list and descriptions off the top of her head. The service was good.
We ordered everytype of meat we could in our group and shared bites so basically, i tried four Entrees. They were all prepared beautifully. The duck was a very generous serving. The lamb with Chimichurri could be my favorite. The Meatloaf with dried cherry gravy was also very good.

Ate here twice during getaway and enjoyed the splurge both times. Food was very good, service friendly but a little spotty. Waitresses seemed a bit overwhelmed. Love that they offer an affordable sweet instead of a whole dessert. The mushroom and rabbit risotto was superb!

My wife and I were staying at the Sun Mountain Lodge and were referred to this place by the woman running the stables. It was as she said, upscale with great food. We split the Pork Belly Bruschetta for an appetizer. I had the lamb and my wife had pork chops. All was great!

This is our favorite restaurant . We try to make it here as much as possible considering we drive from East Wenatchee. The service is excellent though Chef Jon is amazing. He uses a lot of seasonal ingredients. The menu changes often enough that we are able to always have something different! From appetizers to desserts we have never been disappointed! We were even surprised to see Kauai prawns on the menu which were sweet and delicious. If you are lucky enough to see morel mushrooms on the menu do not pass it up. We are so thankful for such a wonderful restaurant.

Once again Arrowleaf hits the mark. This is our go-to special occasion restaurant, and they never disappoint. The ambiance is quiet, comfortable and relaxing. The service is attentive and genuine. And the food is always fresh, fabulous, mostly local, and real. Love starting with the house salad with shallots. The fresh local asparagus with sage was spring on a dish. And the oysters, always fresh. And that's just salad and appetizers.
I most always chose the fresh fish, and this time the the halibut cheeks were a fantastic first. They were amazing. My husband had the whole beautiful trout. And we even had leftovers for lunch the next day.
The wine suggestions were perfectly paired, and we went home perfectly satiated and satisfied.
