Of the four items ordered, two were barley tepid and had to be sent back. The food was all delicious but it was quite expensive considering the lack of getting food to the table while it was still hot.
I love this place. I first found out about the restaurant from a Facebook friend share. I then started watching the Marty Makes videos and when my cousin visited from Texas, ( she too, became a Marty Makes fan) a visit for dinner was on the top of her list. This is a gorgeous setting and the drive down Chuckanut Dr. from Bellingham was gorgeous! The service was amazing. We sat at the counter and the chef’s were gracious and professional in making conversation with us. My Texas friend commented on their “southern hospitality.” We had the fried pickles, AMAZING! And we both had the lamb burger on Breadfarm focaccia. The condiments were fresh and beautiful. Everything cooked to order. A perfect inaugural PNW experience for my Texas foodie cousin. I am now a regular...
My husband and I went here for dinner on Saturday (5/19). The restaurant was fairly empty but we did arrive for an early dinner, at 4:30, since we were going to see a movie afterward. Husband ordered the cheese burger and fries and I had the pork pasta. Ok, whoever came up with the pork pasta recipe is a GENIUS! I LOVED this dish. So flavorful! If I had to give it a critique, I would say to jack the spice, in the sauce, a little bit but that's only because I'm a spicy food fanatic. The portion was perfect, too. Not too much, not too little. I don't like restaurants that serve you a meal that is so large that it's intimidating. My husband enjoyed his meal, as well. We also ordered a dessert - the pot de creme. Holy moly - I almost licked the bowl clean. It was difficult to decide on a dessert because they all looked so good. I think I may have to return just to eat the dessert menu. Can't wait to come back!
We go every chance we get for family get togethers. We have vegans in the family and elderly and everything is tailored to any kind of eaters you have. Can’t recommend it enough. Thanks people. Mother’s day was a blast.
Transitional modern farmhouse decor set out in the middle of the Bayview/Edison farm country. Nice table space, outdoor dining, inviting bar area and great wall art. Perfect for date night or family Sunday brunch. Innovative brunch menu with a creative play on favorites. Eggs Benedict is creatively modified and delivered perfectly on sliced Breadfarm bread instead of muffin and comes with a choice of fabulous frites or fresh salad. Order sausage gravy and biscuits with arugula salad, New Orleans Poutine, Potatoe Latkes with smoked salmon, Joe's Special and more. Prices on menu are very reasonable, plus when you pay the bill you are told that tip is included in the menu fixed price!!! Our family loved our Mother's Day brunch. Highly recommend.
Chef Marty Bracken creates dishes that honor the intrinsic flavors of the food. Her seasonings and sauces enhance the food, never overpower or draw attention to themselves. Wonderful, fresh flavors. Simply superb.
We had an excellent dinner here. The staff was fabulous and the food was very tasty! We will be back!
Amazing food and attentive staff will absolutely return again and again. Can't wait to try more from the menu!
It's about time there's a non-pretentious, low-key, high-quality restaurant with absolutely delicious menu options, priced reasonably (no gratuity establishment!! how great is that??), with competent service, clean and light interior, and did I mention the food? Truly good.
We tried the burger; juicy and flavorful with a pile of exceptionally tasty fries. You know the kind... flash fried with just a touch of the skin left on it and just enough salt . We added an egg, mushrooms, and bacon. That's right. Also tried the pork pasta dish with habanero pesto... totally intrigued by the menu description and the entree didn't disappoint. Not spicy enough to break a sweat, but definitely had some zip. Pork was shredded and juicy -- a really uncommon combo with pasta that'd we'd order again! Since dinner was so great, we had dessert too. Pots de Creme... wow. Like eating the inside of a chilled truffle... and get this... you spread it on a rice krispie treat!! Epic. As if that weren't enough, we also had the strawberry/rhubarb crumble. It too was inspired and we had no problem inhaling it.
We will most definitely be back and we're bringing friends!
Awesome as always and well worth the drive out of the way...
It was a great experience from beginning to end. Grace was our outstanding server; we were going to start in the bar and migrate to the dining room for dinner, but we appreciated Grace’s level of service so much, we stayed in the bar. Grace was warm, professional, and efficient. The food was delicious and fun with a nice variety of options. We loved the cornmeal blinis with smoked salmon, especially. The Black Manhattan cocktail was outstanding and reasonably priced. We loved the industrial design with the warm touches of original artwork and the in-wall fireplace. We will come back to enjoy their patio in warmer months!
Dinner special of beef, shrimp, vegetables in savory broth with Asian noodles was divine. Excellent pork with pasta, and our couple friends both had unremarkable hamburgers
Two of us ordered gin Martinis. One was ideally made as ordered, one was not.
I love this place, always an adventure in finding something unique on the menu. Choices are limited for entrees but choices of starters is magnificent!
Very casual style of diners and spartan surfaces make it a noisy place, so I like to dine there at odd hours without crowds
Unique location, cool interior! Loved the food!
We have eaten here a couple of times and love the food and atmosphere. We usually have 8 or 9 people with usand it has neverbeen a problem getting a reservation. The waitstaff are great and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Loved the salmon croquettes appetizer special. Hope you make it a regular menu item.
Since we were having a nice sunny day, decided to go someplace new for dinner. We are very glad we choose BowEdison Fine Food and Drink. The atmosphere was inviting and the decor was perfect. The food was fabulous and the service was the best we've had in any eating establishment. We will definitely return.....often.
Good place to get dinner.
Service was excellent.
Food was phenomenal.
Excellent all the way! This was my second time there. Both times food was excellent and staff friendly and timely. Rare to find a place that has it all.
Food was amazing including great cocktails. Service was great
Valentines 2018 homerun! My hubby and I sat at the counter and watched the action in the open kitchen while enjoying the following small plates - saganaki (flamed cheese on corn torts...amazing), kale salad (dressing was scrumptious), bbq brisket tacos (yum), roasted cauliflower (tahini sauce worked well), cornmeal blini (smoked salmon was fork tender and delish) and because my husband needed a bit more food than I did, a mini burger and fries (yes, I finished his fries!). We left so happy; the kitchen staff was friendly and our server couldn’t have been more accommodating or sweet. And I appreciated the no-tipping policy and trust the employees are compensated well. They seemed happy too!
Excellent food and beverages. The creativity of the chef is complemented by the creativity of the bar tender. Another lovely evening.
The menu was a bit limiting...wish they had a few more options.
Quaint restaurant, great ambiance, food was delicious, and great signature drinks.
The menu choices were somewhat limited. I believe they try to source locally which is good. I like the fact that the gratuity is already added and doesn't require extra figuring. I'm not sure how often the menu changes, but a larger variety would be appreciated. It is nice to see vegan/vegetarian choices. Staff was nice. We brought our own Christmas decorations as we were told they would not be decorating for Christmas. It was a nice experience.
Mixologist Grace is very talented in crafting her cocktails. We have yet to have a dud here. And now they have a fun secret cocktail special for email subscribers. Favorite dishes are curry, chicken livers, and the octopus (which I think is seasonal). Only been here once for breakfast, but that was delicious too. And Caffe Vita coffee.
We had brunch for our first visit here and it was great. Will be back for dinner!
We enjoyed a beautiful meal -- I indulged in the excellent fried chicken and my husband had an awesome beef burger and a tasty draft beer. My martini was also excellent and they were generous with the olives! Service was friendly and attentive. We would go back again definitely!
This was my second visit and it was just as lovely as the first. Everyone at the table was surprised by the quality of the food and service. It is especially nice that the restaurant refuses tips as they pay the staff a livable wage and also profit share. It's one of my favorite places these days.
Excited to find this place had a vegan option on the menu. Unfortunatly, it wasn’t very inspiring. The baked beans were underdone and spaghetti squash was basically flavorless. Cocktail was great. I would be willing to try this place again if I ever find myself in Bow again because the ambiance was great and so was the service. Hopefully, the misstep won’t be repeated in other seasons.
Excellent meal! The fish curry was amazing.
The four of us were extremely pleased with our lunches...server lacked personality which we all commented on and then we got the check and realized it was a no tipping establishment. Then it made sense.
This was our second trip here and it was good again. The salmon latkes were excellent, the pancakes were ho-hum. The speculoos was a little too thin and lacking flavor. Service was great again.
Farm Fresh and Innovative Meal that went above and beyond attention to detail from the moment we walked into the Bow Edison celebration of their 1st anniversary. I was one of my top 2 dining experiences ever! Thank you for a memorable evening of incredible food, service, art and music in a friendly and familiar setting. Simply the best!
We are familiar with Marty's previous restaurant The Agate Pass Café and have been wanting to try BowEdison since it opened. We finally got our chance and we were very pleased. Quite remote but worth seeking out.
This was our first time here and it was great! We had the salmon bellinis, seafood curry, and vegetable sautee and all were great. Dessert and cocktails were good too. Tip is included and the service was great. We enjoyed it so much we went again two days later for brunch.
We liked every dish and drink we had - happy hour beer, wine, and starters - such as the deep-fried house-made pickles - dinner menu starters and main courses - such my the pork pasta main - and the one dessert we shared - a pot de creme. NB service is included in menu prices, which is a good model in my view. Full bar, decent selection of beers and by-the-glass wines.
Took friends here for dinner. First, our server greeted us using my wife's name since she made the reservation. I had the curry with cod, my wife had the pork with noodles, our friends had the salmon with blackberry and the cordon bleu. All were very good, but we felt the pork with noodles was our least favorite. Our server was charming, playful and efficient. Now, hang onto your hat! This restaurant is a no tipping establishment. It says so on the bill and the server will also tell you.
Service was great! Food was absolutely delicious and the wine was superb. We had a perfect martini before dinner as well. The chef does a great job with seasonings and food pairings. What a great place!
We love everything and friends & family that we take there love it too. The food is always delish. The staff is friendly and efficient. Can't be beat for any occasion.
I have eaten at BowEdison Fine Food and Drink about five times in the last three months, and it is definitely worth the drive from Bellingham. Besides the scenery of Chuckanut Drive, you have a friendly and wonderful restaurant awaiting you in Bow with excellent service and delicious culinary creations. I find it a wonderful place for dining for two or more people, whether after hiking or simply getting together with friends.
