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 went for brunch. Loved everything about this place. Beautiful decor, friendly staff, great drinks especially the Sasquatch Bloody Mary, and of course the food. Our party had the biscuits & gravy, veggie skillet, crab cake Benedict, and breakfast burrito. All were fantastic. Great location as well. Headed next door to wineries after brunch.

Food was very nice but service was not as polished as should be at this establishment. Hostess was about to seat us outside but then after speaking to another staff member seems to have given our table to someone else. Then needed to come ask us where we’d like to sit as if we’d just arrived.

The food was well thought out and tasted good, portion size on some dishes were small and the steak was a little chewy but everything else was great. I think it was a little too pricy. Service was very good and the decor was nice however the noise level from a large party next to our table was off the chart loud. I feel like it ruined a nice quiet dinner.

Had brunch around 1.30pm outside on the terrace which was nice & had pleanty of shade. Brunch menu not extensive, but reasonable choice with short lunch menu options. Wine by the glass & the usual brunch cocktil choices. Selected Lox bagel decent size for $18, the basic breakfast sandwich at $12, plus binents to share

The only better place to eat in Woodinville is The Herb Farm, Barking Frog's big sister. My wife and I have been here countless times and it's always a genuine pleasure.

This time we went for the tasting menu with wine pairing which can throw some servers and sommeliers because my wife can't drink reds. Not an issue for BF; they had an excellent white blend which worked perfectly with the middle course of grilled octopus and chorizo.

Looking forward to many return visits.

When my reservation mentioned the occasion was for a birthday, they left a lovely card at the table and gave us a dessert that said Happy Birthday! The food was wonderful and the waiter was very helpful in accommodating the fact that neither of us eat meat.

I was left underwhelmed by this place, I suppose I expected more for the price. The service was slow, had to wait a considerable amount of time in a half empty restaurant. The food was tasty, although portions were pretty small. Crazy prices for coffee drinks: $6 for an espresso?!? Ambience was very nice and I love the location but I think I’ll be dining elsewhere in Woodinville.

We had a wonderful lunch here last week with a friend visiting from out of town. This is our Go-To restaurant in Woodinville. The menu is short and sweet. Lots of burgers, fresh salads, and seafood. Our server, Meisha, was perfect ! Always around the table but never too pushy. She explained all the specials, and half the menu for our enquiring stomaches. Portions were large and I just thought a tad expensive for the lunch food. We will be back ! And soon !!!

We loved this place so much. Jennifer for brunch and lunch the next day was fantastic, she took such good care of us and was so nice to talk to. Rochelle for dinner was super attentive and we enjoyed talking with her about all of our travels. The food was FANTASTIC!!!!!! If there for a weekend a must have are the homemade beignets with huckleberry Cream Cheese. This was such a find in Woodinville.
The restaurant is located by Willows Lodge, beautiful grounds just wanted to stay. Only downside is the Lodge is very expensive to stay.

I loved the layout of this restaurant and how they displayed the food. The food was just not what I thought it would be for the cost. The dessert we had received was sooooo amazing, each piece of the desert complemented each other so well!!

Our server was amazing! We had a misunderstanding but she helped us fix that and made us feel so important and cared for!
