We showed up on time, and were seated promptly. Our server was very friendly, knowledgeable about food and drinks. Will definitively go back

Food is priced at fine dining prices, but not fine dining quality. Toasted baguette was burnt, entrees we’re pretty flavorless. Food came too quickly and we felt rushed through our meal, not the romantic anniversary dinner we were hoping for.

Service was warm and friendly. The restaurant felt safe and welcoming. Portions were underwhelming, but expected.
We were most disappointed with the filet mignon. We ordered two at our table, both medium rare, and both dishes were very disappointingly over cooked. Both were tough and burnt to a crisp on the edges. Did not feel we got our $84 dollars worth of steak. That being said we have had incredible steak here in the past- some of the best ever, tonight was just a disappointment.

Booked on OpenTable, arrived on time & got seated right away. Great views of boats & kites. Service was good & food was delish! Glad we dined here against the other seafood contenders in the area.

Had the shrimp plate. Shrimp was good, fish and rice good. Broc wasn't very good, seasoned well, but too charred. Overall expected more for $40 a plate.
Had the cobbler and ice cream, ice cream was amazing! Cobbler was warmed up frozen fruit under cobbler crust. Not very good fruit...

The filet mignon was the most exquisite l have ever tasted, bar-none. Our 30th wedding anniversary dinner did not disappoint.

I went to celebrate my birthday. I enjoyed the choices of summery gin and tonic drinks. I tried the first one on the menu with the elderflower and grapefruit garnish. I did like my house salad with the smoked blue cheese salad dressing. I would have liked another seafood choice for the main entree. I would have also liked something special to acknowledge my birthday, that information was shared when I made my reservation.

Their menu has very little to eat if you are a vegetarian. We had to ask for a chicken quinoa meal without the chicken in order to not result in ordering salads. It’s a shame too since Bellingham is a very friendly vegetarian town.

We really enjoyed our experience at Lighthouse. We did experience some service issue with the timing of how our starters and entrees were delivered. All were delivered at the same time, instead of staggered. However, the server did understand the concern and did provide complimentary desserts.

Had a fabulous night on the deck of this restaurant, celebrating our anniversary. Got a great pinot at a stellar price to go with our seafood risotto, to die for chowder and tasty salad. Will come again when I am next in town!

Had reservations for 6PM. By 630 we hadn’t even got our drinks yet but,everyone seated around us after we had been seated had already gotten their drinks and had also placed their food or so we got up and walked out.

We love eating here and have several times.
Food is always good. Service was slow for not being busy. However enjoyable
We received the wrong drink, but it was a good mistake we enjoyed
It was my wife’s birthday which we put in the reservation but obviously it was not acknowledged as we’ve come to expect when scheduling such things. This was disappointing.
We asked for water view which we got, but it was the smallest and furthest from the water. We figure others who came in after us did not have reservations and got better seating. So in essence food was great.. service was so so and the experience was so so

I ordered the seafood salad. I have had it twice in the past few months. It is a good salad but price is a bit high. Went ahead and order it again anyway because of getting the three prawns and salmon. This time I only received two prawns. Asked server and she said that they had recently changed it to two. For $28 you should go back to the three prawns. Way overpriced for a salad.

We decided to eat out for our 30th anniversary, but only if we could sit outside. It was a bit breezy but beautiful view, and relatively quiet. Plenty of distance between tables. Food was mediocre for the price. Great service. Felt safe.

My guests were VERY impressed. My only issue might have been how long it took before anyone took our drink order, but we did have water poured. Also, I’m aware there might be some ongoing adjustments as dining in begins again. It was an extra special treat and the menu choices were superb!

The food was great the ambiance was nice, however got sat at little to top in the little sun room, would have liked the dining room. It was a bit loud due to the echo out there. The server was really nice, however the drink delivery was very slow and our soda refill finally came when my daughter was done with her meal. We both had the filet mignon and we were half way done with our steak before we got our first check back. Glad there wasn't really any complaints because we may have been sitting there for awhile. Over all we enjoyed ourselves, my daughter and I knew what we wanted when we came in, we got our steaks and the food and view were nice.

The blue cheese salad dressing was very good. The rice in the risotto and under the fish was unevenly cooked. Some grains were mushy and others were hard. The bread in the basket seemed to need more salt in it, it was rather bland. The service was excellent.
