We have been here for happy hour a few times and loved the food and drinks so decided to try this for dinner. The food and service were great. You can tell the wait staff enjoy working here as they are very cheery, energetic and efficient. The food was very good. We had the risotto, red curry, pork ribs and the shrimp entree among the 4 of us and everyone enjoyed their dish. It was a birthday celebration so we had the coconut dessert and they provided a lit candle. There is a good wine selection and a smaller selection of beer on tap. Great mixed drinks.
This is our favorite go-to restaurant when we want to get out of the kitchen and have a great meal among friendly faces. It's nearby, not much of a splurge, has a strong bar program and offers a menu of Asian-inspired dishes made with local and organic ingredients. Service staff are pleasant and well-informed, and we always leave smiling. Highly recommended.
The braised beef here was delicious and the service was amazing. I'll definitely be coming back to try more of the menu!!
Delicious! Was super busy but luckily made a reservation.
There is a delightful cacophony of happy patrons every time we visit. Brought some friends for their first visit and they were delighted. We hope to visit often
The tuna tacos were absolutely delicious but it was the cocktails and pork nachos that really won us over! Other food (delicious as well) we shared was the hot dog and prawn and veggie bowl. Great flavors all around!
2nd time in a week I've eaten here. Can't get enough of their yummy food and craft cocktails!
We visit Bar Dojo several times a year, live and eat locally.
Unpretentious, they focus on detailed quality; contrasting, yet cohesive, flavors, visuals and textures. They explore and blend atypical and traditional ingredients/execution and deliver with style and elegance (minus the ego). Delicious!
The owners, chefs and service staff, we've learned, have been together for a long time and it is apparent. Watch how they interact with themselves and each other. Consistently sincere, thoughful and relaxed with excellent food and service.
We love Bar Dojo! This is the first time we had been there for Happy Hour. Our group of 4 ordered several of the happy hour specials to share and really enjoyed the varied tastes. Because it is somewhat pricey, we usually just come for special occasions, but this time, we just wanted to get some of the pork belly tacos. We ended up getting a lot more than that, and loved it all.
The food and service is always great at Bar Dojo. Their burger is amazing and I love getting the avocado and bacon tempura. They always have new flavorful items on the menu, it’s hard to choose. Tonight the affogato was our dessert choice, it was a good size scoop of ice cream and a cute French press of espresso, super yum.
Bar Dojo has long been one of our Edmonds favorites. This time we were seated in between three rather large dinner parties where the decibel level was uncomfortably high. It was a busy Saturday night and there were no other tables available. We left for another good restaurant where we could hear our server and carry on a conversation. Sorry, but maybe we will try Bar Dojo again during the week when there is likely less noise.
We love Bar Dojo. Fish is great. The burger is terrific. Our favorite neighborhood spot.
Hate to write a good review and spoil the secret that Bar Dojo being is an awesome place to settle in to a wonderful dining experience, but I can't lie. The place is great. Very unassuming from the outside, but inside the place super comfortable and runs like a well oiled machine. Love the wait staff and the food is outstanding. Nicely stocked bar as well. Kudos to Shannon and Andrew for creating the dining experience my wife and I love to enjoy.
Exceptional food and service! Great Valentine's Day menu.
My favorite Saturday night spot. The menu is always special. Love the wait and bar staff.
Love this place. It is one of our favorites! The food is always amazing and the service is great!
The food and service distinguish the rating for Bar Dojo's. Great food and great servers. Always consistently outstanding.
Great menu with many tempting items. Great care taken by chef in assembling a menu with fantastic side dishes to accompany each main entree. Outstanding use of local, seasonal foods. Very knowledgeable, helpful wait staff. Reservations essential.
This place never disappoints. Whether I go for a drink and appetizers and sit at the bar, or a special meal, the food is consistently excellent and the service is equally good. I had dinner there Saturday evening with family who have food issues, gluten free etc., our waitress (Sherry) coundn’t have been more helpful. They were very busy, but she took time and explained all the options to us. This is the first place I go for a nice evening out.
From the moment we opened the doors and were greeted by a friendly, happy person who welcomed us in. We had a wonderful dining experience. The waiter we had was excellent and so attentive and friendly. The food and drink was top notch. We all 4 enjoyed our food thoroughly. We will be back very soon! Loved everything about this place.
Fantastic delicious food! Second time at Bar Dojo in one month. Wish there was a second location in Skagit County.
This is our favorite restaurant. We drive from Seattle to go!
It was good. Server let us order from happy hour menu in restaurant. Service was a bit slow but it was ok. Was surprised by 21% service charge, usually 18%. Regardless will be back again.
We enjoy going to Bar Dojo on Monday because the happy hour runs all evening and they have an awesome happy hour menu!
Our absolute favorite place to eat out on special occasions! No matter what you order, it won’t disappoint! Super good food. Our must “go to” with every meal is the side of avacado rice. Highly recommend bar dojo to any and everyone!
Always a favorite for either a casual drink and dessert with friends, or date night dinner. Excellent service and entertaining bar tender.
Best food always even the New Year's eve special menu was off the hook.. thank you so much for not being so far away to drive and being a local Business owner..... and thank you Chef the food was again delicious..
Had the fixed price New Year's special dinner. The food was extremely interesting. I would recommend it to anyone interested in a novel food experience.
The food was amazing, the atmosphere warm and comfortable, and the service impeccable. It was the perfect choice for New Year'S Eve dinner.
We met our friends there for dinner. We had visited one time previously but were not impressed. Thought we would give it another try since these and other friends continue to rave about Bar Dojo. Our friends loved the dishes they chose. My husband enjoyed his choice of crab and grits. I thought my ribs were just ok but the fries and coleslaw were delicious. We all really liked the appetizers...especially the tempura bacon. The service was excellent! We were there for about two hours. We never felt rushed and our water and drinks never ran out. Parking there can be difficult because there are two other restaurants and a convenience store sharing the parking lot. There is street parking nearby.
Dinner was amazing! Everyone was happy with their dishe! The ahi poke taco appetizer, sooo good!
Great neighborhood restaurant with tasty food. We celebrated a family birthday there and everyone had a great time. The only slight challenge is limited vegetarian options as one or our party is a vegetarian.
Great appetizers, entrees, dessert and sides! Lots to choose from and a great wine list per the people next to us. Shelly is a great server and Andrew, the owner, is very nice as well. Make a reservation as it’s popular!
Wonderful menu. The food and service were superb.
We were early, but a table was ready for us. Ordering was prompt. Staff were friendly, but in the front alcove, had to wait a while to get their attention for mid-meal service request. Food good, but a mixed bag. We ordered a salad and two shares. The pork-belly tacos and cucumber salad were wonderful, the lamb riblets were crispy salted bones with very little meat and a twice-cooked flavor that benefited from the salty disguise; a poor value; would not order again. Main seating area very crowded and noisy, a big party atmosphere, but front three tables considerably less commotion. This was our second visit; looking forward to returning to try different things and perhaps get to raise score to outstanding.
Food is usually first-rate here, and it was again this time -- mostly. Uninspired prawn dish with mush at the bottom, so avoid that. This restaurant is in a strip mall, but diners shouldn't be deterred, as it is very nice inside with an unusual fusion menu.
The food was delicious and the service was great! Our server helped us with our order as we weren’t sure of which items to order. They have a great variety of Asian fusion food and the food is impeccable. They also have an amazing wine list per
the people around us. Make a res as it’s popular!
The order took a very long time, and we didn’t say anything about it (just enjoying catching up) yet they covered one of our two bottles of wine when they brought out the food. They knew, and they took care of us!
Second time going to this place with friends. Food is creative and inventive, but very, very good. Love the shared appetizer plates and the Entrees are outstanding! Can’t wait to go back again. Love Bar Dojo!❤️
A hidden gem. Unexpected in a tiny strip mall North of Seattle
