Delicious and inventive food: tempura fried bacon is genius. Service was friendly and prompt. Not a big place, so a reservation seems like a good idea.

Wow - Bar Dojo continues with excellent and creative dishes such as the poached octopus and beef tartare offered on their prix fixe for Seattle Restaurant Week. Not afraid of bold flavors and unique presentations - delicious! We're going back soon!

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!

Bar Dojo never disappoints. Tonight our party of 3 shared several appetizers and then a couple of us went for delicious noodle/rice bowls. All were so good - poke tacos, lemon grass wings, coconut prawns and the outta-sight cocktails made for a great evening.

Friends raved about this restaurant so we tried it for a birthday dinner. Portions were ample and tasty. Tables are close together so expect to hear other conversations. The shared starter plates can easily serve as dinner! We ordered two of those and then dinner so took home food. (Great for lunch the next day). For a casual, strip mall restaurant, prices seemed a bit high. Dinner with two specialty drinks, bottle of wine, 2 appetizers and 2 dinners was $196 with tip. The food was well prepared however and creatively put together.

This was the first time we had been here, had no idea how close it was to our house! The food was awesome! We chose from the sharing menu and it was perfect! The pork belly tacos were fabulous and the lamb riblets were incredible, they had a nice smoky grill to them and the sauce was to die for! The cocktails were very good, I recommend the Dojo 75. We have found our new favorite place! It is small and relatively noisy, but that isn't an issue. Be sure to make a reservation because it does fill up fast! We went on a week day and most of the tables were full when we got there early.

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.

Bar Dojo is a fan favorite for us. Love the food! Service can be a little slow. I believe there was only two waitresses serving the whole restaurant. We had a couple of drinks that were delicious. We will definitely be visiting again. Always smart to make a reservation before hand for they have limited seating.

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.

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.

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.
