Incredible view and even better food!

I enjoyed a lovely dinner at New Leaf; my table was facing the water and there was a gorgeous sunset. I ordered the filet minion which was cooked perfectly; tender and juicy and the port wine Sauce was phenomenal. I couldn't resist the flourless chocolate torte for dessert and I'm glad I didn't... read more

Excellent service and delicious food! We had breakfast and dinner there, and loved all of it. I highly recommend the eggs benedict for breakfast.

I am still dreaming of my Monte Cristo and my husband is literally ready to drive the 3 hours back here to get another veggie eggs benedict. Yum! What a nice surprise. And, they were kid-friendly too. I had a delicious green smoothie with my breakfast and it was so fresh I didn't even feel guilty for ordering the Monte... More

My friend's parents had the same thing and it was not only horrible in appearance but not tasty either. My friend's meal was good and mine was so-so.

This was one of the best meals I've ever eaten at a restaurant, and my husband agreed. We split the warm goat cheese salad - the waiter was kind enough to let us know it was big enough for two and they even brought it out on two plates for us. The goat cheese came on the side. Very fresh... More

Parking is pretty easy to come by here, even though they were quite full. They told us we would be about 20 minutes but were seated within 5. We each had a draft beer. My boyfriend is lactose intolerant so it was a little difficult to find much without dairy, even if they deconstructed the item. We both agreed that... More

Not often we get to go out to breakfast. We are lucky to live on Orcas and enjoy all the restaurants that Orcas has to offer. Breakfast at the New Leaf was excellent!! My daughter had the Monte Cristo, large yummy sandwich, she could only eat half. My husband had the biscuits and gravy, he did eat the huge plate... More

Great selection of dishes, recommend the octopus carpaccio, French onion soup and the Alaskan scallops. It has a limited but fine selection for kids. It was busy on the February Friday we visited, so recommend booking. Great service and nice wines by the glass.
