This was one of the best meals we have ever had. Great service. Great view. In a place you might never expect exceptional dining. We have been here twice in 3 days. Everything is fresh and creative. The cauliflower steak was a total and unique surprise. Wow!

Wow I didn't expect it to,be so good. We are staying at the hotel so wanted to try the restaurant the menu was really varied. I had the halibut which was the best I have ever had. Served over garlic mashed potatoes. Every bite was better than the last. The hot goat cheese salad with pistachios was delicious and the... More

We have stayed on the island many times but this was our first time to finally have the opportunity to leave kids behind and enjoy this lovely restaurant for a romantic evening. We were intrigued because last time at island, our family waded in the water across the street to walk to little Indian Island and to our amazement, a... More

A well earned #1 rating. We started with house cocktails- the Rosie and the Sonata. They were unusual and absolutely delicious. Would have like to try others but would have been too full. Do not miss the warm goat cheese salad. It makes all the difference when greens are freshly picked and cheese is produced locally. The mussels were also... More

Ok, so it's really hard to give New Leaf 4 out of 5 because the view is spectacular and the food was good, but here are some things I had questions/concerns about... First of all, their Happy Hour starts at 5pm, but you can't order from the main menu until 5:30pm. Why is that? Don't you want to have your... More

This breakfast place made me realize that some PDX breakfast favorites of mine leave much to be desired of. Simple and well executed. My girlfriend and I shared the Belgian waffles with a homemade Cardomom whipped cream that was out of this world delicious. We also had steak and eggs rancheros with everything seasoned to perfection including the little scoop... More

New Leaf Cafe is a great find on Orcas Island -- it's ratings are well deserved.....so much so that we had dinner there on two different evenings within the week. One absolute must is either the Mad Hatcher chicken breast with risotto, or Mad Hatcher chicken confit. Both are absolutely wonderful and are some of the most moist and superbly... More

Bad start when we tried to go to happy hour only to be denied. When we checked in the front desk clerk made sure to let us know that happy hour (5-6pm) was only offered on certain days and today (Friday) was one of them. We arrived at 5:20 only to be told that happy hour is only served in... More
