This is a nice place to have dinner with another couple. We could take our time and talk the evening away. The four course dinner is fabulous and gives lots of options for each course except dessert. We had a wonderful evening of great food and conversation.

I LOVE this place! I have celiac and anytime I can go someplace that has incredible food AND I don't get a reaction is amazing! My husband and I had the prix fix menu. I had the best salad, beef tartare and beef tenderloin. Everything was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The beet salad had a cooked orange which had a tender, edible skin that gave the salad a nicely balanced citrus sweet flavor. So innovative and delicious!

Barking Frog has been our go-to for birthdays for years. We celebrated another one tonight, and weren't disappointed at all! The menu was varied, and everything we had was excellent.

Food and waitstaff were great. The Front Desk was not as attentive as you would expect. They ignored us upon arrival for a few minutes, and later, they did not reserve a breakfast table for us after the waiter assured us they would take care of it.

We went to Barking Frog for our anniversary. The great service started when we were greeted by a card wishing us happy anniversary signed by all the restaurant staff. They seated us at a quiet, romantic corner table. The service was amazing as was the food. They are known for farm to table and did not disappoint. The incredible meal was topped off by a wonderful chocolate dessert on which each of our plates had Happy Anniversary written in beautiful script out of chocolate.

Really enjoyed our dinner and atmosphere - if you crave a different menu this is your restaurant - all the dishes we were served were outstanding except the fries served with the steak - great steak but if I am paying top $$ for a steak meal I would expect something better !

Barking Frog, this is our fourth year,has become a family Christmas tradition. After we, as an immediate family, have spent thanksgiving and Christmas season serving church, other family members and friends; we relax and get served over breakfast by you.

We are a family of foodies; rarely dine out; we are also food and service snobs.

We were greeted by a professional and friendly young lady.

Our server was personably yet let us have intimate family time; observant to approach us when we wanted to order, refill drinks, clear plates yet we never felt rushed or pressured. Our food was served immediately as it came up from the chef; served hot and fresh.

The chef delivered well plated flavorful food. The few personal requests were heard. My egg snob family got beautifully poached eggs, perfect over easy eggs, excellent textured scrambled eggs. Food was prepared perfectly seasoned following the description on the menu.

Our bill was presented and retrieved at a comfortable time in our conversation. Our waters were refilled and we were comfortable continuing our conversation without pressure to leave

Our experience was excellent. Our family tradition will continue next year.

Thank you for the Christmas present

The Cox Family

We came for Christmas brunch. Although the food was excellent, no additional menu items were offered for the holiday. Also, the service was less than enthusiastic as none of staff in restaurant proactively said “Merry Christmas” to us or anyone we saw being seated near us. This is in sharp contrast to a late Christmas dinner we had in Bellevue where several Christmas-specific foods were added to the regular menu and staff gave all guests a warm “Merry Christmas!” when arriving at their tables.

We have eaten at BF many times, and have never been disappointed by the food. But we will skip BF in the future for a Christmas holiday meal since other restaurants make an effort to provide a dining experience that is different from a regular business day.

Overall a lovely Christmas Eve morning. They didn’t overlook themselves which was refreshing and it made the service a good solid experience! The food was good, not spectacular but better than most. Good flavors but execution fell a little short of being great. I would definitely go back as I think they likely had the Secondary team cooking this time. Thank you treating us well!

It was a letdown, unfortunately. I communicated to the management regarding our experience (dishes too salty and or overcooked; service far from impeccable given the reputation of the restaurant) and they’ve been in touch with us to offer apologies. Perhaps during the non-holiday season, everything will be back on point. Our experience was probably an anomaly.

The ambiance was beautiful. There were three of us in our party, having our annual Staff holiday lunch. Between the three of us, we ordered the lamb burger, mac and cheese and the prawns. Our food came out to us luke warm in temperature and about 45 mins from the time we ordered. In fact, my burger sat at the chef counter for a while before the other two items were ready so the server could serve us. I saw her walk by my burger a few times but didn't bring it to me as all three items were not ready at the same time. I ordered the burger cooked medium but by the time it came to me, it was well done. The food was delivered by the runner, my friend who was having the prawns asked for bread, she was told they don't have bread service during brunch but the table was set with bread plate and butter knife which i pointed out and was told that's for the benigns. I ended up offering the top of my burger bun to my friend so she could have bread with her meal. Instead of offering an alternative, the runner just said no. By the time, the server came to check on us, we were close to finish our meal. We expressed to her our dissatisfaction with no bread service and the food coming out nearly cold. She also made the same comment about the bread service instead of offering an alternative like a hamburger bun as an option or perhaps something else. Instead, she gave us a $9 discount of one of the prawns and offered to remake our food but we were almost done at that point. Service and food was not at the level of the price we paid for our meals. I ordered coffee and was never offered a refill. We barely saw the server and the restaurant was not that crowded at 11:30am. We weren't looking for a discount rather just an enjoyable meal experience with options. Additionally, the table should not be set with bread plates and butter knife if there is no bread service as not everyone will order the benigns and is misleading.

The food was wonderful, the service was great the overall experience was a straight a. The most memorable part of our dining experience was our wonderful server, Andie! She was attentive, highly detailed, offered us options to our choices, and in the end and to generalize because of her we felt like we were dining at a very good friend’s home.

An absolutely fabulous evening with impeccable service and attention. We (four) did the tasting menu, which was a great opportunity to try different menu items (off each other’s plates)
Two of the party had never been to Barking Frog before. They were quite impressed with the varied menu offerings as well as the skill in which they were presented.
We were meeting these distant relatives for the first time and had a lot to catch up on. We never felt pressured to do anything but enjoy the moment.
Barking Frog is once again showing itself to be the go-to place for a very special dining experience.
Thanks for a great evening.

Wonderful food and excellent service. Very comfortable environment. This is our “normal experience” when we dine at The Frog. The manager actually “comped” me a glass of wine just because. . . . This is our go to place when we are in Woodinville. Outstanding breakfasts too! You just can’t beat The Barking Frog “.

Delicious food and excellent service!! A couple of us had the Barking Frog breakfast with mini huckleberry pancakes and warm syrup - so good. Our birthday friend had the breakfast burrito and loved it. We tried a bloody mary, peach and huckleberry bellinis. Yum. Will definitely be back.

We came here to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. Coming from a person who has kids, and who does not get to enjoy a beautiful dinner in a romantic setting, this absolutely was perfect. I want to leave an honest review, truly I can't come up with anything that made this experience unpleasant. The service was great, the food was absolutely delicious, and at no point did we feel like we were just a table that needed to be turned over. Thank you so much for the most romantic evening we've had in years. We already decided after our first bite that this will be an annual thing for anniversary.
