First time in the Woodinville area and the Barking Frog. Great meal .The Mixed Green salad as a starter was delicious . My wife had the Halibut and I had the King Salmon. Both terrific and well prepared. The Salmon has an asian bent to it and the Halibut buttery on top of risotto.Will come back next time when in the area. Our server was Jennifer and she was very knowledgable and on top of service.

Great server, food, cocktails!! Was asked right away if we had food allergies. Said Gluten free to server, he said not a problem . Order anything and we will customize!! So nice!!! Even gluten free artisan bread!! Spends but worth it.

Really good food and service at this place. For some reason it was way too cold in there though. They had the a/c too high and my wife was basically shivering through our meal.

We celebrated our 25th Anniversary at the restaurant. Using Open Table to make reservations was so easy. We had the 4 course dinner, and was amazing. We each ordered different plates, except for the cod so we could taste each others. The octopus was great along with the lamb and tenderloin. Not a fan of the steak tarte, but since we were sharing didn't make much difference. The waiter, Tim, was fantastic, with recommendations.
Also received special greeting card and dessert writing for the anniversary.
Great romantic location and for picture taking before sunset.

The foie gras and pork belly were the best I've ever tasted. The steak was mediocre. I'd rather save my money and go to Ruth's Chris for steak. The salmon was on the raw side.

Service was terrible. We came before the table by us and ordered first and got our appetizer first, but they got their main course before we did. They even had more people than we did and order the same salmon. The waitress came by and said our food would come soon, sorry for the delay. But even then, it was 15 more minutes before we got our food. Seemed like she forgot to put our order in. From the time we ordered to the time we got our main course, it was nearly an hour wait. Waitress checked on us once in an hour and a half and it was nearly empty in the indoor seating. For a special occasion, I'd go elsewhere.

It started out not so good, an aloof host and 20 minutes till our drink order was taken, 40 minutes until we got them. But once things were settled in and the food arrived it was a pretty good experience. Love their tasting menu process.

Went for dinner on a busy Saturday night. The food here is excellent. We did the pick 4 with wine pairing and it was a great choice. Everything was great (especially the foi gras) and the wine pairings were perfect. It is very expensive-so it better be a splurge kind of thing!

From our pre dinner drink at the bar through dessert, it was absolutely fabulous! We split the rib eye steak & it was perfect. Cooked to medium rare perfection. We shared the creme brulee' for dessert, awesome! Great place for dinner before a concert at the winery across the road.

Had a 1pm reservation. Seated quickly but the food service took 45 min to bring out a salad, eggs benedict and a kids mac and cheese. Server didn't check on us or the food service during this 45 min waiting period. At the 40 min mark, I asked the waiter to rush the mac and cheese for my child as we had already waited so long. The other tables were also suffering from the slow food service. The food was good. If the food service is taking long, the waiter/waitress should check on the patrons and see if they want bread or at least let the patrons know that the food service is delayed for whatever reason

I love their patio setting, with a nice water feature, lovely plants and a quiet setting. One of my favorite outdoor venues in Woodinville. Nice variety of food, though not extensive. A bit pricey but Very nice presentation. Creative desserts and friendly service. Service is a bit slow, so I wouldn't recommend it if you're in a hurry.

Had a lovely lunch this past Tuesday after touring the nearby wineries. Since it was a non-holiday weekday and after 1:00pm the restaurant was nice and quiet. Several options for lunch to satisfy pretty much any taste. Portion size was perfect for lunch and reasonably priced for a fine dining experience. We ordered the bread basket which is extra but well worth the price. Three different types of gourmet breads served with honey, lavender butter yum! We ordered a couple of desserts which were masterpieces unto themselves. It was a hoot to listen to our server describe the desserts to us. All of the exotic ingredients that went it to making them made the experience of eating them an event. Our server was well trained to know just the right balance between checking in with you to see if you needed anything versus leaving you alone to enjoy your experience. Her recommendations to us were spot on as well. Since we had toured the nearby wineries we opted for glasses of sparkling rose which was very refreshing. Overall a very enjoyable and satisfying experience. Would definitely recommend this establishment to anyone looking for an upscale, fine dining experience.

Our waiter was new but did a phenomenal job. My wife and I were staying at Willows Lodge for a night for our 1 year wedding anniversary and went to Barking Frog for dinner. We sat outside and enjoyed a 2.5 - 3 hour dining experience that was nothing short of sensational. We each chose the four course option as well as a bottle of wine recommended by our waiter. Everything we tasted was delicious, and we were both very satisfied at the end of our meal. I would highly recommend this place to friends and family; not to mention Willows Lodge itself is also awesome :)

I have to admit that I was underwhelmed. Based on the reputation and prices I expected a lot more, but the service was slow, my steak was an under cooked poor piece of meat, and there wasn't much flavor to our dishes. I would've kept it to myself, but my wife had the same response. The lodge was heavenly, but I could've done without this poor experience.

Good food as usual and great service but everything seemed to have added sugar including the butter and the Dungeness crab dish. This may be a crowdpleaser in this part of the country but less so for east coasters. Excellent wine by the glass. But more expensive than it should have been. Mark Ryan dead horse 2012 can be gotten for $50 a bottle and the restaurant was charging $1000 a bottle. This could make one think that the restaurant thinks diners are idiots. It was however a perfect place to take my mother-in-law which was the whole point.
