Disappointing.

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.

I'm sure the setting helped a ton but we had an incredible salmon meal here (in their outdoor seating area) topped off with a drink and a gluten free desert. It made for an amazing night.

We really enjoyed our dinner at New Leaf. The staff is friendly and the bar does a nice job with a variety of drinks. Reservations are recommended during the summer. The bar is always packed. I has the scallops which were delish!

This isn't your grandparent's hospital cafeteria! The food was good tasting and the people were really friendly. What a gem to find when visiting for business.

We were fortunate to book a reservation here on their last night before closing for the winter and it was well rewarded. I have been in the F & B industry for over 20 years at a variety of properties, from large hotels to small independents, and these guys could hold their own anywhere in the US. Everything from the...
