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.

Took almost an hour to get a burger and eggs Benedict delivered to our table. No real recognition from the waitress that there had been such a long delay, and no offer to help make up for it in some way. Been here numerous times, but never had this bad of an experience before.

This is such a pretty setting. We had family visiting and brought them up to experience the food. The menu doesn't have a lot of choices but everything on it is very good and tastes homemade...even the hamburger buns. The fire going is always nice. Order the shrimp dish it is amazing.

The atmosphere is intimate with excellent wait staff (located across from Willows Lodge). The bone-in ribeye is juicy and full of flavor. The duck breast is also a great choice with the chef's recommendation of medium rare. Great location for a date night or small group get-together.

This was our second time eating here. This time was far better, the noise level was good and I could actually hear my husband sitting across the table. The food is pretty expensive but for a splurge it is nice. Great service. It was my husbands birthday and they had a birthday card at the table when we got there and we received a birthday dessert , which we did have to pay for.

Dinner was outstanding! We began with oysters on the half shell. They were wonderful. Salty, tasty, and unbelievably fresh. We loved them so much we ordered a second helping!

For our entree we had the tenderloin steak. Perfectly cooked and it was so big that I couldn't eat all of it. Served with a combination of mashed new potatoes and yams. Unusual, and again, very good.

We topped off our dinner with three scoops of house-made ice cream and sorbet. Excellent, light, and went perfectly with the house coffee.

We used to come here all the time for weekend brunch and dinner. It seems like the service has gone down. Our main server was not very good at all. She kept forgetting things that my husband asked for and wasn’t very attentive. They weren’t busy, only 3 tables when we sat down. The food took very long to arrive. We saw the food sat at the warmer for a long time before our server brought them over. The supporting staff for drinks were much more attentive and observing. They were great. The food was good except for the non running york for the poached egg

Our dinner was outstanding. We began with a dozen raw oysters which were excellent! Our main entree was tenderloin steak.
It was tender and cooked perfectly. Served with the steak was a blend of yams and new potatoes which were mashed. Also included was a portion of roasted vegetables.

Service was impeccable. We left full and happy vowing to return for breakfast!

Each course was fantastic. Our server, Andie was just outstanding. If you want fine dining with outstanding service, Barking Frog is a great choice.

Dinner has been fabulous there. Sad to say breakfast disappointed. Flavorless crab Benedict and the potatoes tasted like dirt. The French toast was good but seems to have sat to long before coming to the table. Ordered the Bloody Mary that was supposed to have bacon, got no bacon even though the waitress said she’d bring it. Not what we had hoped for the ending of our anniversary weekend.

No wine in above choices?? Excellent list/ waitress allowed me to taste & offered 2nd choice - a drier white. I didn't know either. Menu even offered to do the wine/food pairing. Seated immediately. Great wait staff. Great menu choices..I loved the Brussel sprouts as well as the risotto.
Unfortunately there was a woman at the next table that talked non-stop.

Tried it out during Seattle restaurant week and was blown away! Awesome food. We added an extra appetizer to share amongst the three of us, then tried each of the three different options for all 3 courses (so 10 items total shared family style) and all were absolutely gorgeous and perfectly executed. Looking forward to going back! ❤️

I have only eaten at the Barking Frog once before and both times the service a d food we fantastic.

On this latest visit, my girlfriends and I decided to try it out for Seattle's Restaurant Week. The 3 course dinner was tasty, fresh and complete comfort food on a freezing cold November evening. Our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly and extremely accommodating to our needs. Given it was SRW, the restaurant was fully booked but we never felt overlooked or rushed. It was a thoroughly delicious and enjoyable meal. We will definitely be returning soon! Many thanks to everyone front of house and in the kitchen, you made our night!

We went here for a special occasion and the service, cuisine and atmosphere all came together to make it the type of evening that we had hoped for. The staff was attentive without hovering, responsive and helpful. The food was creative and delicious. The setting, nestled next to the Willows in the heart of the Woodinville wine area, was a welcome relief to the usual necessity of the hustle-bustle necessary for a top rate restaurant experience.
