My husband and I were with our good friends celebrating her birthday. We had a special cake made and it was very good. Three of the four meals were seafood and they were fabulous! I mistakenly got risotto which was a gloppy mess, not like any risotto I have ever had or made. It wasn't bad it was just disappointing! Everything else was awesome including the staff.
One of my faves! From a casual lunch to a celebratory dinner, they've got you covered!
Excellent NW cuisine, good ambience and congenial staff, great setting on Canal with views of the Olympics.
An excellent meal after coming off the trail - great new menu
We had drinks before lunch and mine was very tasty. It was a fig vodka with champagne and a fresh blackberry floating in the champagne glass. My husband enjoyed the fish and chips while I had the roasted beet salad with blue cheese and hazelnuts. Their fresh baked bread is always tasty with their special butter and flaked sea salt.
Have had lunch on the patio so decided to splurge on my daughter's Birthday. After driving an hour then being seated, waited 20 minutes for a drink. Had calamari and cauliflower appetizers and both were good. The beet salad was great. Then waited 45 minutes for entrees. Halibut was over cooked, steak was cold as was the risotto. Didn't send it back for fear that it would just be reheated or we would have to wait again. Sticking with happy hour and lunch.
We began our evening by having a drink outside by a fire pit which was delightful. We were celebrating a friends Birthday and ordered the Chefs Tasting Menu with wine pairing. The first courses of heirloom tomatoes and tempura cauliflower were delicious. The second course of salmon was excellent. We all ordered the steak medium rare as the next course and unfortunately they were all closer to medium well/well done. I had forgotten to ask if the meat is humanely raised....after I received my steak I inquired and was told the animals are raised humanely but the Chef could not confirm if they are slaughtered humanely. I appreciated the honesty and elected to not eat my steak on principle. My friends decided to eat their medium well steaks and described them as dry and not flavorful. Our server was wonderful and literally insisted that she replace my steak. It was my fault for not asking before ordering about the humane practices so I was not expecting a replacement. She brought a scallop entree to substitute which was very good and greatly appreciated! Desserts were also very good. The wine pairings were generous and nicely complemented the food. We will definitely return!
Everything was great except for NY steak. It was tougher than a rubber ball.
Great crystalized rhubarb, zucchini bread, beet salad and also seared tuna salad
Our dinner was fresh and wonderful and the service was exceptional! Definitely a great dining experience!!!
I ate 3 meals; breakfast was simple, bacon & eggs; lunch salad with crab & bacon wrapped prawns; and a delicious chicken dinner. My friend had the pasta with prawns and said it was very good, waffles for breakfast. I loved everything but wish the chef could have gone easier on the salt.
It would be useful to seat families with small children a bit away from other diners, at least in our opinion. (We continue to be surprised that young couples bring their small children to elegant venues).
Great place to eat with wonderful views in the background.
Came for lunch. My husband had the Reuben, which he said was just "ok". I had the Ahi Tuna salad, which I wouldn't order again. Tuna was overcooked; lots of potatoes and green beans, but no lettuce. Not sure if the menu stated that, but either way - was disappointing.
Highlite of the meal was the bread...fantastic, along with the herbed butter topped with sea salt.
Service and attention - top notch. No complaints.
A special trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary found us at Alderbrook Resort, where en greatly enjoyed the chef's tasting menu and wine pairings. The full menu looked good as well. Recommended!
Our lunch was excellent...service also outstanding. Celebrated a birthday and anniversary.
(My deceased husband and I often came to Alderbrook for a get away weekend many yrs ago)
So I came back to revisit your restaurant. Thanks so much for a delightful lunch and visit.
We have been to this restaurant several times and always had a good experience. This particular visit the restaurant was Much busier than usual which slowed service and ticket times from the kitchen considerably. While my wife enjoyed one of "the best" crab benedicts she had ever tasted, I was very disappointed with the tough New York steak. It was served sliced which I did not ask for, on a room temperature plate so the meat was not hot, nor juicy as one would expect from this relatively expensive cut of meat. I am sure we will return again for a special occasion, but will likely "steer" clear of the steak.
We enjoyed two dinners and two breakfasts at the restaurant at Alderbrook. All meals were delicious....we especially enjoyed the halibut, beet salad, and pork chops at dinner. Breakfast options were plentiful and also very good. Food was beautifully presented to the table with care. Servers were consistently friendly and well versed regarding the menu. Would highly recommend.
I reserved a table ahead of time for lunch. The restaurant was not busy, but the view from the first table we were shown to was blocked by the outside cook tent. The next table was marginally better even though there were empty tables around us The clam chowder was barely lukewarm and although it had plenty of bacon we found little evidence of clams. The focaccia was salty and garlicky which helped, but overall it was over priced and not an experience we would want to repeat.
