Had the Crab Poke which was delicious. Everyone was very satisfied with their orders. The Asian ribs looked particularly good. Their Dragon Fire cocktail is a delight. It is a friendly small place that is well worth your while.

The place was pretty busy so definitely set a reservation with that being said the staff was great and the food and drinks came out in a timely manner. As far as the food goes it was spot on. I had the duck and risotto and it was Amazing... My date had the blackened cod and I have to say it was probably the best cod I've ever had. Trust me if you try this place it will become your new favorite. I'm definitely going back again...

We went here spontaneously with a George up of friends. We had lots of small plates and cocktails. Everything was amazing. Creative and unique Asian fusion. Local and yummy. We came back the next week to try some entrees. Can not recommend enough.

this is the second time we have been here and it is still great! We came for my birthday on a Friday night and expected it to be very crowded so made a reservation for 6 o'clock. It wasn't crowded at all! The time was probably why. The food was great again, cocktails pretty stiff! All and all a great place to go!

Bar none, Bar Dojo is our favorite restaurant in Edmonds! Superb Asian fusion, generous cocktails, the friendliest wait staff, and on Wednesday nights, I believe, a classical guitarist. The Ahi Poke Tacos, Pork Dumplings, chicken wings, and burger are musts. So are their sides, like the pork and tofu falafel-like 'balls', or the avocado rice. The chef has a knack for combining flavors in ways that will wow you. Love it!

Bar Dojo has been our "go-to" restaurant for several years, for bringing guests, going out with family or hitting it late (10:30ish) after a show. The setting is unassuming but we go there for the wonderful Asian-Fusion cuisine, the prompt, efficient and friendly service, and the great drinks (thank you Mathew). They have a reasonably large menu, which changes out as the chief experiments with new offerings, but rotating back the best dishes over time. The shared dishes (appetizers) are almost always stellar (oh, those coconut prawns and pork dumplings!), to the point that you can make a wonderful shared meal by ordering several and foregoing the entree...if you can resist. We're usually too full to enjoy the desserts, but the ones we've had have been of the same creativity and high calibre as the main menu items. Wednesday nights they have live music so make a reservation. There are a several real good restaurants in the Edmonds area, but this one is consistently our favorite.

This was the first time I actually felt like my meal (and others at my table) lacked something; it was the lack of color. All four meals looked this way. Very disappointed but am hoping they will fix the problem. We eat first with our eyes; and in the past my meals were always beautiful; but this time we all felt the same way.

Food was impeccable as usual. Jason our waiter is just as fun as can be. I only say this because we absolutely love the place and wish it 100% success for years to come; but the greeter met us with “can I help you?” Kinda weird..like we walked into an auto parts Store or something. Anyways, way picky, I know but a little off-putting.

Decided to go on a date here after reading good reviews and just having move to the area. Restaurant was in a different than expected location, cozy, some might say crowded with little parking. However, inside is a small, lightly dimmed restaurant WITH AMAZING FOOD. Not a fan of the close seating especially on a date, but the food will definitely bring me back. I had the Geisha drink which was very refreshing and shared the pork belly tacos and chili wings. THEY WERE SO FLAVORFUL.

As always, the food at Bar Dojo was delicious. We ordered from the happy hour menu, which was reasonably priced. The miso/avocado salad, the veggie tempura and the phorrito were all perfectly done. The space is small but tasteful, with an Asian minimalist design. Dine here when you’re looking for exceptionally tasty dishes!
