Always good food, this time it was outstanding, the very best duck we've ever had!
Quiet and cozy atmosphere, amazingly delicious food and fantastic wine selections.
Our favorite place! Amazing food, gorgeous setting, and attentive service. Love their Crab Bisque and Goat Cheese Salad. Scallops are a must!
Elegant cuisine, professional staff, and overall fantastic experience.
Excellent meals and wonderfull ambiance.
We were a little apprehensive to go out to dinner, our first time out in months. We trust this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Social distancing was observed, we were asked to wear our masks until we were seated, which we liked. Some others that came after us did not have masks so that was disappointing. The food as always was excellent. My pasta dish should have had 3 prawns but I only got 2. Darn. The waitress was very good. We will go back again soon.
Dockside Bistro may have the best food in Olympia. Everything we had was delicious and beautifully presented. We had both halibut and salmon and they were perfectly perfectly cooked and the sauces and sides were wonderful. Thank you for a great graduation meal during these crazy times.
Spent the evening with my wife and decided on a place we’ve never been to. Wow what a surprise to find this place. We enjoyed it so much. Food was on point and will definitely recommend and return for another amazing meal down the road. Love love love this place.

Thank you for the great food and fresh menu!
Server "Ben" was knowledgeable with the specials menu and we appreciated that.
If I may make a suggestion? Do a wine pairing with dinner menu.
I'd pay the extra for a paired wine.
Oh...I might add the view of the dock is always a nice way to enjoy a meal with family and friends.
Great to have them opening. Their duck borders on legendary.
We’re locals, but if I were visiting Olympia this is one place I would go. Terrific menu and presentation. Beautiful location. Professional service. A little pricey, but worth it.
Great restaurant and really good food. I love the atmosphere there and staff is very nice and accommodating.
One of our favorite restaurants. The food is consistently well prepared!
The whole experience was amazing even during this crazy time. Server was so helpful and cool. Thanks Dockside
Excellent food and waitstaff.
Food is excellent - it has been excellent every time we have gone there. We do not live in Olympia, but pass through several times each year. We make a point of arranging our travel to insure that we can stop at Dockside Bistro for a meal.
Excellent food and service. Drinks were a bit expensive ($15/glass of wine; $7.50/glass of draft beer). Only a few diners present 6-7:30pm on a Saturday (probably due to recent coronavirus scare), which made it nice for conversation. Pleasant recorded music making for a very pleasant ambience. Our server was very knowledgeable and pleasant and our food arrived in perfect order.
My husband and myself were in town this weekend celebrating our birthday’s and our upcoming anniversary. The service was great and the food was amazing. We will definitely come again!
Excellent food and service. a bit on the high side but very much a "special occasion" venue. Quiet. Not rushed. Overall a nice evening for us and our friends.
The new server was excellent and the food and wine perfect accompaniments!
This restaurant has a strong claim to be the best in Olympia. The service is genuinely friendly and attentive. Every course of our meal was inventive and excellent. The only downside is that excellence costs a lot -- by Olympia standards.
This is a waterfront gem that does not disappoint and is worth every penny. When I am looking for a good steak in Olympia, the filet here is my first choice. The vibe is neat, good for dates or anniversary or a small group gathering. Great food, the warm bread and tasty herbed oil is stellar.
A wonderful restaurant on all levels. The food is superb, the service excellent, and the overall experience outstanding!
The food was very good but too expensive for what we received. I ordered the fish which was an average sized order, nothing special, but the price was $39 for the plate. Salad was an extra $10 for a very small amount. If the food had been exceptional as in other fine restaurants we have visited, the price would have been more in line with the meal. The service was extremely slow and there were not that many people at other tables. Very disappointed.
Twice the wrong order came to the table, first the spit I appetizer and the dessert.
Best restaurant in Olympia. Everything was cooked perfectly
Great food and waitstaff coupled with quiet ambiance make this a great place for a romantic dinner in Oly!
As always, dining at Dockside Bistro is a true pleasure. Their food preparation and presentation is exquisite and the service compliments it. Don't wait for a special occasion, although that would be wonderful, visit and dine for no reason other than you'll get a fabulous meal.
Wonderful food with amazing service. I’ll be back for sure.
We were seated right away, our server was knowledgeable, personable, and made sure we were taken care of without being overly present. The food was excellent and the overall experience was very pleasurable!
The food was excellent
nice part of town with view of marina, service nice, un-hurried dining experience, great place to spend an evening. Noise level much lower than most places in town. Food is always great, well presented. Great wine list. Price is where it should be, compared to similar more upscale restaurants.
Soup lukewarm and salty, also. Avacato crab appetizer too salty Salmon crab entree so so. Noisy. Had to ask waiter to change table.
What an awesome evening! The dinner was exceptional and the service was excellent. Always a great choice!!!
Service for birthday was excellent
The wine list was wonderful. Our server was well informed and helped us choose a wonderful Pinot Noir. Our meals were perfectly prepared...seriously! We'll definitely be back.
Our visit was the first time we have been to Dockside Bistro. We really enjoyed the quiet dining room and friendly staff. The dinner was great and we will be back for all our special occasion's.
There were two dogs in the dining area. One was reportedly service dog but other was not.
It is hard to eat when we smell dogs...
One of our favorite date nights. We love to have delicious romantic dinners here.
It was a spur of the moment decision to eat there before a play. The food and service was top notch. We’ve been there many times and have never been disappointed.
