Northwest
It's difficult to say what is most appealing about the Barking Frog - the food, the wine, the atmosphere. All of the above earned this casual bistro featuring country fresh Northwest cuisine rave reviews. Honors have included "Restaurant of the Year", "Most Innovative Wine List" and "Wine Grand Award" awards, presented by the Washington Wine Commission. Delectable dishes entice guests to linger in the light-filled dining room or to gather around the fireplace. While in the summer, lunch and dinner are served in the courtyard.

Wine tasting in Fireside Cellars - Many wineries are open for public tastings, others are not. However, there is one place where you can relax with friends and fellow guests to taste the finest that Woodinville Wine Country has to offer - Fireside Cellars at Willows Lodge. Join us from 4PM-11PM Sunday-Thursday and 4PM-12AM Friday and Saturday.

We celebrated an anniversary at Barking Frog. It was not our first visit, and I'm sure we will be back. We had a lovely meal from start to finish. Every item was seasonal and very well prepared. The service was attentive without being overbearing. The atmosphere was lovely and warm on an unseasonably chilly evening.

Food was good - as usual. The service is just really slow no matter how full the restaurant is. My mom, who lives nearby, likes going there (and agrees service is slow), so I’ve been many times. This visit, it took 40 minutes to get our breakfast for a table of 2 and the restaurant was at 40-50% capacity. Also, the short, dark haired lady who appears to be a manager or hostess is never friendly. She may want to at least pretend she enjoys her job and smile once in awhile as she is seating guests. Coincidentally, during our last visit, we heard a waitress tell that woman she found her very difficult to work with. I’d say even if it was a joke, not very entertaining for your guests to hear. And we didn’t think it seemed like a joke since neither of them laughed or smiled.

I wanted so much to love this restaurant. The patio is lovely and our table was nice and quiet. I was offered a blanket as the night was a little chilly. Unfortunately there were some missteps with the kitchen that made the experience average rather than something special. The salmon dish arrived dry and it took a while for our server to come back and check on us. But when I mentioned the condition of my dish turns out they completely forgot to add the broth that was supposed to be served with it. The server graciously brought us a free dessert. However when the check arrived the price of the chicken my husband ordered was way off from what was printed on the menu. I don’t usually like to write a review, but these kind of missteps shouldn’t happen in a seasoned restaurant like Barking Frog

I was very disappointed to see that now Barking frog is charging to park when you eat dinner there, I understand the need to pay to park when I eat in Seattle but let's face it this is Woodinville. I also will add that the valet are not very pleasant.

Generally good experience. One unfortunate thing. We arrived for our reservation, waited for the 2 couples ahead of us to be seated. In the meantime another couple arrived. The hostess presented menus and a server to THAT couple before us, and when I started to step forward, said "we're seating you at the same time". Well, not quite. Another server arrived shortly and we were seated. The episode was minor, but rude, and it affect our feeling about the restaurant--not quite classy. The other couple was young (we are in our 50s and 60s), attractive, and appeared well to do. We were dressed more casually because we were going to be attending an outdoor concert. however, despite appearing less well to do, the hostess might do well to know that we are actually local millionaires--in case she was judging by appearance. You can't tell from appearances, but she surely WILL be judged by how she treats the guests. Next time, take us in order, please.

The greeter was slow and plodding, setting up several empty tables while we waited to be seated. Food took forever to arrive even though the lunch menu is very limited. Food was fine but not special...the prices are special!

Service was slow, it took a very long time to get it our drinks and our meal. I let the waiter know I couldn’t tolerate milk or dairy, pretty sure there was dairy in my food based on how my body reacted to the meal.

Our experience at Barking Frog was very disappointing. Our shrimp app had so much cream sauce on it we couldn’t taste the shrimp. The bacon wrapped shrimp on our Cobb salads was so over cooked you couldn’t cut it in two with a knife and we were served a side of bacon that wasn’t eatable. We’ve been their 20 times and we’re questioning if we’ll ever go back.
