We've gone for lunch several times but went for dinner this time. The menu was locally sourced, as advertised, with a variety of options. I had the sturgeon and it was perfectly prepared. Very much enjoyed the tapenade served with the bread but the bread could be better. Our server was very attentive.

Some of the highest quality fare on the peninsula. Our waitress was attentive without being overbearing. Expect to spend a premium amount. Atmosphere was quiet and quaint. Overall a romantic evening and will return.

We have come back year after year for a romantic weekend getaway. The restaurant never disappoints! This year we were even in a crazy snow storm that Port Ludlow rarely experiences but yet the resort and restaurant were fully staffed and still gave their high level of service and excellent culinary experience. Thank you!

Much better than last time Food service prices and selection were great. There is NO where else to eat in the area so we genuinely want this place to do well. We ate in the dining room for dinner and had great food attentive service and accommodated a dietary concern with no issue at all. A lot of places will do that but there is an eye roll lol. This was great. We also got a to go order to have in our room and it was great. Much improved since our last trip.

We had an enjoyable evening at the Fireside Restaurant. Although the food was very good, what we will remember most is the excellent service. At a time when many restaurants keep as little staff as possible, The Fireside Restaurant was well staffed by friendly and attentive professionals. The Restaurant is a beautiful and is situated in a beautiful marina. We will be going back often.

I can not even begin to describe how delicious the food is. We stayed at the adjoining Inn so we ate several meals there (including breakfast) and they did not disappoint. Even the butter they brought out with the bread was other-worldly. Everything is made from local ingredients and the menu is always changing. If you love excellent food then this is worth the drive and the money. We are not drinkers but the wine list they brought out was the size of a small novel so I am sure a wine lover would find something spectacular inside.

The restaurant din was slightly louder than I had hope, but not intrusively loud. We have enjoyed several dinners at this restaurant and like to keep it for special occasions. The food was excellent and well timed- the wine menu is extensive and price ranges were from affordable to expensive. Nice place.. great food.. Enjoyed the eveing.

If you are coming to the Port Ludlow Resort by boat, as we did, plan on treating yourself to a night ashore for dinner at The Fireside Restaurant - you won't be disappointed. The quality of the food is superb, well worth the price on the menu. My only quibble: Fireside should add two or three relatively reasonably priced Chardonnays from Washington's Columbia Valley on the wine list; IMO the ones on the list are pricey. Consequently, we chose a Syrah instead when we would have preferred white wine with our meal.

What a great surprise when we were at Port Ludlow and we ate at the Fireside. Had no idea they were such a gourmet restaurant but well priced. Absolutely delicious food for brunch and also lunch and early dinner. Fantastic staff. Beautiful view and beautiful interior decor. Absolutely loved it can’t wait to go back.

Dinner was amazing. My husband ordered the farm lamb chops and was in heaven. He said "hands down the best ever" I had the halibut and it was also amazing. Fresh farm lettuce salads and to die for dessert. We were also very impressed with the wine selection which was is quite extensive . All together a wonderful evening!

We were staying at the Inn at Port Ludlow so we made reservations for dinner a couple weeks ago. It was a beautiful and warm evening but when we were checking in, the host told hostess to seat us by the fireplace —-which was on. As soon as we sat down, we were uncomfortably warm. We asked if we could move elsewhere and were told no. They finally did turn fireplace off but I felt like we were being unreasonable. Our server seemed stressed and had too many tables. It took forever to get both our cocktails. Mine was so sickeningly sweet that I had to send it back and ordered wine. Steamed clams were ok. Bread tasted like popping fresh dough loaves. Our main dishes were not great. My husbands was better. Mine was bland and tasted like retirement home food.it lacked seasoning. Both dishes were SO overpriced for the size and quantity. Lucky for them that they are the ONLY game in town, otherwise they would not last. Would stay at inn again -enjoyed that- but would bring our own food next time!

I was really disappointed in my experience at Fireside. I brought my 72 year old mother from Arizona to Mothers Day Brunch. Upon entering the girl seating people was not welcoming. She seemed very stressed and overwhelmed with her job. We were seated promptly, but we were taken to a table in a dark corner, with no chairs. I was told very matter of factly when I asked for another table that I should’ve put in a special request if I wanted a decent table. I walked up to the front to speak to the girl overwhelmed with her job, and she very rudely told me I can’t make a request to change tables and they’ll get me some chairs. I was stunned. I’ve worked in customer service for 15 years and I would never treat a customer the way I was treated. It wasn’t until I asked for a manager that we were seated at a table(with chairs) and a beautiful view. The service we received was excellent by our waiter. The food was really good, although the selection was pretty slim for the buffet room. Although we won’t be coming back there, I really hope some customer service training is implemented with staff so no one else has to experience the type of service we received from the girl greeting at the front. Kudos to the chefs! The creme brûlée was excellent, Food 10/10, service1/10.

Dinner was good, appetizer “mushroom strudel” fantastic.

Scallops were good but not hot, my wife’s rack of lamb had excellent flavor but was on the border of being cold. Everything tasted great, just not served as warm/hot as it should have been.
