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.

For the price, the food is not good. There are numerous restaurants in Seattle that are less expensive and significantly better.

We absolutely LOVE this restaurant! The staff is so friendly, we needed to change our timing and Erin was an angel and got that done. Our server Kirsten was phenomenal! And the food was stellar! We started off with the oysters, they were excellent and the accompaniment with the oysters was to die for. The beet and goat cheese salad was superb, my husband had the bone- in pork chop that was cut off the bone with absolute precision. I loved my filet and lobster tail, with roasted carrots and frites. If you plan a day wine tasting in Woodinville absolutely make a reservation to end the day here.

Although I believe this restaurant has been a top contender for years, the lack of service we experienced alongside albeit high quality food that lacked creativity was a less than stellar experience.

Chef Bobby Moore and his staff made sure our dining experience was one of a kind. From the moment we walked in, until we left, we had outstanding service from the hostess, runners, and our server. The food was top notch. Not only was it delicious, but it was nicely presented, and larger portions than you would find at many other restaurants of the same level. We did not leave hungry. The cocktails and wine selection were lovely as well. All around, great night. Thanks Barking Frog!

Very excellent experience. We did the tasting menu with wine and they accommodated our request for all Washington wines to get a sample. The food, the pairings, and the friendly and helpful service were great. We even returned for an equally excellent brunch the following day.

We enjoyed a fantastic brunch; the food was terrific (don't miss the beignets!), the service was great, and the restaurant is beautiful. There's also a large circular table with an open fireplace in the center that looks ideal for a nice group meal. Parking could be tricky, since it shares a parking lot with Willows Lodge and the Herbfarm...but maybe that means you should just book dinner at the Herbfarm, a night at the Lodge, and come to the Barking Frog the next morning for the best day of eating you could imagine.

I had the octopus for my second time and the it was off for me with only 2 small pieces of sausage and a very over powering flavor like floral sore of not quiet sure.

After enjoying 4 great meals over the past few years, we were very disappointed with our meal in February 2020. Food was just okay, service was slow, and the noise level was intolerable.

I'm calling it an off night. The service was excellent as always but the food was mediocre at best. This is a big drop off from the last couple times I've eaten here.

This is not a special occasion - fine dining restaurant thats why price wise its expensive.. Go to a local everyday dining restaurant or a real fine dining location..

Barking Frog is a nice and discreet gem in the Woodinville area. We went there for brunch/lunch.
The service wasn’t too great, we felt that we were treated like the waitress was doing us a favor in serving us, a bit of a snotty attitude.
The actual food was great looking and tasty, however the menu seemed pretty limited for my taste. I give it a three star for the food quality, inside setting and great service at the door.

Wonderful experience! We chose this place for our Valentine's Day dinner and was not disappointed. The food was beautiful and delicious. I'd never had sword fish before and it melted in my mouth like butter. The service was perfect, everyone was nice and explained the menu items. The ambiance was very nice. Not too loud, people dressed nice, and dining neighbors were friendly. Totally recommend and would come again.

Our food was delicious. The atmosphere was very calm, no loud blaring music, fire in the fireplace, quiet lighting, comfortable seating very conducive for eliciting conversation and an unhurried dinner. Our wait staff were gracious and accommodating.
