If traveling from Seattle, we recommend walking on and off the ferry - we are an easy stroll from the ferry terminal. The ferries can run a wait for drive-on passengers during busy times; walking on and off avoids this, as well as adds to the greater experience of destination dining.

Hitchcock Ratings and Reviews
Took forever to be seated. Hostess checked us in, had us wait while she got wine for another customer and then seated us at a table that was already set up.Once we ordered drinks for a party of three, it took forever! Then our appetizer showed up shortly after receiving cocktails.
Food very good and server was nice and pleasant. Menu print is too small for older folks and lighting is hard to read the menu. One needs a flashlight.
Superb from every perspective. The service was very responsive in an unintrusive way, the food was local and flavors were big and excellent. The sommelier chose an excellent wine for us. I am very picky and value conscious and I enjoyed every aspect of Hitchcock's thoroughly,
The atmosphere and setting are wonderful. Service is top notch - from recommendations on what to enjoy, to wine pairings, to the timing of when and how your meal is served. Then there's the food - WOW! Everything tastes amazing and ranges from simple to complex. Lovely for any occasion!
Loved the food and wine! We do the Chef's Tasting Menu each time, and it is totally worth it! 10 courses including oysters. We don't like oysters, so they substituted with an amazing salad! Service is spectacular. Tasting menu allows you to experience "slow food."
WE WENT FOR MY SON'S 34TH BIRTHDAY. THERE WAS ONLY 4 OF US BUT WE WERE VERY WELL TAKEN CARE OF. STAFF WERE ATTENTIVE AND FOOD WAS SIMPLY DELICIOUS!! WE STARTED WITH SMALL PLATE THEN WERE GIVEN A COMPLIMENTARY AND UNEXPECTED CHEESE PLATE!! SO FUN TO TRY DIFFERENT CHEESES. I ALSO MADE RESERVATION ONLINE,EASY PEASY.
THANKS AGAIN FOR MAKING OUR DINING AND BIRTHDAY DINNER A SPECIAL MEMORY.
WE WILL BE BACK.
Our dinners at Hitchcock keep getting better and better.
This time we sprung for the beef for 2, or for 4 depending on your appetite. It was perfectly cooked, delicious and accompanied by roasted Jerusalem artichokes with a homemade aioli! Outstandingly decadent and totally awesome!!
Service and wine list always please as well.
The presentation and ambiance was pleasant. A small venue but intimate. Great ingredients as all of them are locally sourced. The waiter helped us to design a menu that would be a representation of Hitchcock without going thru the tasting menu, which would have taken 2.5 hours. The start of the dinner went well, the oysters from Hamma Hamma river were fresh, the cheeses were a varietal, the sunchokes were roasted well. We got sick though from the Coppa and the Neah Bay salmon both were on the salty side, hence the lower ratings. We didn't go for the dessert as the last two dishes weren't to our standard. The wine selection offering was great, as the waiter helped us out with a great aromatic bottle.
Dinner was preceded by exceptional (and unusual) cocktails. Both were excellent.
We chose oysters on the half shell as an appetizer, and they were delicious, although the selection was limited.
My wife's pasta and my sablefish were exceptionally well prepared. Both were wonderful, albeit a bit expensive, choices.
We shared an order of profiteroles for dessert. They may be best we have ever tasted!
Service was perfect. Our server was helpful without hovering, and the courses were well-timed. Our server knew that we needed to leave to catch a ferry, and made sure we had plenty of time to spare.
We can recommend Hitchcock without hesitation.
I took my wife Kathy to Hitchcock for her birthday. For both of us, it was our first time there for dinner. We had the Chef's tasting menu. Each course was magnificent ... impeccable ingredients, creative dishes, amazing flavors, and truly artistic presentation. Our server Allison was informative and delightful, making the evening perfect!
We love Hitchcock! While we like going for no reason at all, it's also a great place for enjoying multiple courses (starting with cocktails) because the ingredients are so fresh and the dishes have such wonderful flavors. You won't go wrong with the featured fish or pasta. And, definitely save room for dessert, especially anything with chocolate!
Our server was absolutely fantastic, but 2 of the 3 entrees were incredibly salty. The server responded appropriately, management did not. When we spoke to management about the issue, they had lots of excuses for why the clams and duck confit were excessively salty. However, we've had those dishes elsewhere in the USA and Europe and they can be prepared in a way that is not salty. Management never offered to comp us one entree , the bottle of wine, or provide a free dessert. Although the ingredients appeared fresh and top notch, given Management's response, I will not recommend Hitchcock to others.
