I went with a friend. We ordered the lamb meatballs to share for our starter. They were delicious. Service was friendly and the atmosphere was lovely.

Very nice venue and grounds at Hollywood School, a nice place to visit. The restaurant is pleasant, nice inside space and fire pits to sit around outside. The service is good too, the food was the low point. We had the Brussels sprouts app and it was very good, after that, not so much. The chicken on the salads had an off taste and texture and the paella was less than average. The wine list is reasonable and we enjoyed that. Perhaps we didn’t make the best choices. The lamb burger looks pretty good, if I come back I will try that. Realistically though, with so many eating choices out there, if you are not pretty impressed on your first visit, a return trip is not very likely.

Went out with the girls and made reservations. Our table was ready when we arrived. I like the fact that they do not rush you. The food was wonderful along with the service. I highly recommend this place.

Had dinner with my best friend. Great ambiance, we ate outside and sunny day turning into a lovely warm evening. We ordered some burgers and Paella, which was wonderful. Service was good, not to overly attentive but timely to ensure we had drinks, waters and plates picked up by staff. Great value, the reasonable prices, and good food was something to recommend. Definitely will come back with the wife and kids.

We loved our dinner & wine at the Bistro, friendly service and all the homemade food tastes delicious.
Try the brusselsprouts with Aoli & Panceta, we loved the salmon dish too and take the chicken if you are really hungry, enjoy

Always a great meal here, my steak was cooked to perfection. One of my friends had the salmon and said it was also just perfect. The service was attentive even though they were quite busy.

Food was delish! Service was great! Review was based on outdoor seating which was nothing special, not to mention sitting next to the bathroom door is less than ideal.

The Bistro at Hollywood Schoolhouse is one of our local favorites that we come to often. We have never had a bad meal and the staff is very nice. We nearly always order the steamed clams for an appetizer. If you are a fan of manila clams, this is a great preparation to try! Other favorites on the menu right now are the salmon with crab hash, the nicoise salad with fresh ahi and the beef short ribs. They also have very good specials, a nice selection of wine, beer and ciders, and they change up the menu with the seasons.

We LOVE this place - and go often! The employees are friendly and funny - and the food is ALWAYS delicious! We’ve highly recommended it to many people and we’ve also taken several friends there for the first time (and they are now regulars, too)!

Very limited parking with confusing reserved signs were an auspicious beginning to an attempt at celebration that dragged on due to slow service, and peaked with two out of three entrees being over salted almost to the point of being inedible.

Not a bad restaurant but I doubt I would give them a second chance.

What a find in Woodinville! Excellent menu with lots of variety. We ordered many different items and were impressed by all of them, from the truffle fries to the short ribs. A fun casual spot for a fantastic meal while wine tasting.

It was a quiet night with only three tables filled. Service was fine, but not very attentive for such a small number of customers. The food was fine, but nothing memorable, and the value was poor for the portion and quality. We had Brussel sprouts, they were greasy and bland. Clams were fresh and flavorful, LOTS of saffron. Lamburger was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. The prep was really boring, but the ingredients were all very nice and this was our favorite.

VERY expensive for what it was. Although it was not a bad experience, it was not good enough to go back.

Our very enjoyable meal started with the Fritters and Shrimp. Followed by Paella and Chicken Pot Pie dinners. Great meal, for a first time visit. The outdoor seating, without sitting in the sun, added to a great experience. Thank you

Quiet night at the Bistro, server was attentive but not intrusive, food and wine were very good and they accommodated my dietary requests (no bun on lamb burger and vegetables instead of fries). We will return!

Really really impressed by The Bistro at Hollywood Square! My wife had the steak and I had the shrimp and grits. Absolutely fantastic on both entrees. Didn't have the kids with us (DATE NIGHT!!) but noted the kid's menu so this will be a definite return trip for the whole family. A definite gem in Woodinville!

We've been to The Bistro many times and have never had a bad experience. Both the food and the service are great. And if you've lived your whole life thinking you don't like brussel sprouts, I challenge you to order them here. They are AMAZING!!

We always enjoy going to the Schoolhouse Bistro. It's quite a neighborhood gem.

The moderately priced menu is excellent and varied enough to suit everyone's favorite bistro-type food. Quantities are generous, quality is excellent, dishes are prepared promptly and brought to your table. We often order the pot pie and lamb burger.

Sam, frequently our server, greets us each time with a welcoming smile, very personable and professional.

Happy Hour is a good bargain and well worth a trip.
