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.

I had the pleasure of attending the Barking Frog 10/20/2019 for dinner (reservation at 8pm with my partner for our joint birthday as a treat. I have eaten at the Barking Frog about 4 times over the years & sadly this occasion was very disappointing for the following reasons!
I ordered the Mediterranean Octopus which was tough & in my opinion was over cooked! I pointed this out to our server (jarard) who replied "interesting, i will let the kitchen know" & would i like another? which i replied "No thank you i have lost my appetite. we both then had desert paid $246.40 with $20.00 cash tip & left.
At no point did any manager or anybody follow my complaint up! maybe The Barking Frog customer complaints is left with the server, but i expected more from the Barking Frog!

We have noticed that the breakfast food is not uniformly hot when it arrives at the table. The servers consistently warn of of “ hot plates” but the last few visits, it’s really only the eggs that are hot and everything else (bacon, potatoes and toast) are warm at best. The food takes a long time to arrive, which would be fine if all of the food was hot.

Our server was so welcoming and accommodating. We were there for hours enjoying our food and conversation with friends. The staff never made us feel like we had overstayed. Wonderful food and ambience.

Anniversary brunch on a Tuesday was quiet and enjoyable. The garden skillet was tasty with all the vegetables. Eggs Benedict was as good as expected. Coffee and water were refilled without prompting. Waitstaff came on schedule for refills and to ask if we were enjoying use meals or needed anything but did not hover so we ate our meals in pleasant peace.

Slow to be acknowledged arriving with hostess standing in front of me and no eye contact, seemingly not busy like on auto-pilot. All else fantastic on third time visit.

Jennifer is an amazing waitress and makes our dining experience extra special each and every time. The atmosphere is what I would call casual elegance, and the restaurant is warm and cozy. It’s not noisy, like so many restaurants.

I have always enjoyed the BF for quaility everything. However, the current menu disappointed (me, personally), as I do not enjoy many vegetables. Especially, beets. No problem, other items were delicious. But, vegetables in the dessert menu was over the line for me. All items seemed geared for low on sweetness, which left me out. :(

We were celebrating our Anniversary. We checked in to the Willows Lodge and booked a table at the 5 star Barking Frog. We were not disappointed. Both were exceptional.
We were placed in the back of the restaurant in the corner. A private location and wonderful. Our server was great and kept the Champagne we ordered ahead of time chilled and flowing. Our food was superb. We both had salads which were fresh and well mixed. I had the scallops which were the most tender and tasty that I have ever eaten. My husband had the halibut entrée and he absolutely loved it.
It was a wonderful and tasty evening.
Thank You Barking Frog for making our event so special.

The food is delicious and the service is great. They even had a birthday card on the table signed by the team working that night. We had an early reservation so it was not too loud for conversation. A great place for a special occasion.

The atmosphere and the employees are very nice. The food is good with many choices.
The only drawbacks are that the service is very slow and the noise level is uncomfortably high as it is one big room. Partitioning the room may help with the noise.

Hadn’t been here in years. Caesar salad was excellent. Several at our table had the tasting menu and they said it was excellent. Wait staff were attentive. The shrimp cocktail filling and was enough for dinner. Will put this restAurant back on our list

Usually our experience at Barking Frog is wonderful, the server must have been having an off night. It took 20 minutes just to offer our drink order and service overall was underwhelming.

I would have appreciated knowing up front that there would be a 30 minute or more wait time for our meals to be served. With the room service orders and regular restaurant there was a long delay.

It is such a beautiful place in a wonderful area. Took my wife there for a birthday lunch and though it is close to home when you get in there you feel like you went on a day trip somewhere. Service was great, wine was tasty and food was very tasty.

Tremendous evening! Celebrating 50th birthday. The food was amazing! We really enjoyed the egg ravioli with sausage that our waitress recommended. Our waitress and the sommelier were so friendly and gracious and made excellent recommendations. They made our special occasion even more special. Thank you!

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.
